Francis Of Delirium – “All Love”

Francis Of Delirium moved in a shoegazier direction with last month’s single “Come Out And Play” and the project’s Jana Bahrich continues down that path on her new track “All Love,” which boasts some towering guitars and a sweeping melodic throughline that reflects some of the greats. Bahrich said that the song is “about dissociating from what your present moment really looks like,” adding: “Sonically, I wanted the song to sort of reflect that and feel like a big wave of sound that sweeps you up...

The 18 Best Horror Movies On Shudder Right Now

French Ways

Finally at the end of summer the warm weather has arrived in Provence, driving everyone either inside or to the beach. Luckily, for us our maison du village (house in the village) has stone walls that are over three feet thick. Our maison's wall butts up against the neighbor's maison's wall creating a six foot thick stone wall. Insulation at its finest: Cool interior in the summer, holds heat in during the winter. Our home is a mere four hundred years old... and yes most French household ke...

Bee Sting

Sent to me by Patricia xx The thought above reminded me of   Saint Francis and his teachings- … though when the bee stings me the idea of being a flower fades. Ah to be able to hold good thoughts about another when they sting you, to seek understanding in the face of adversity. That was Saint Francis.                    [Author: French la Vie]

Warren Buffett used the 'Mona Lisa' to explain why art is a terrible investment - but then compared Berkshire Hathaway to an art museum

Warren Buffett. Getty Images / Jemal Countess Warren Buffett dismissed art as a bad investment nearly 60 years ago. France could have made $1 quadrillion if it had invested instead of buying the Mona Lisa, he said. Buffett described investing, valuing and building businesses, and Berkshire Hathaway as art. See more stories on Insider's business page. Warren Buffett invoked one of the most famous paintings in history to explain why art is a poor investment.The billionaire investor tackl...

Interview: Johnny Galvatron Can’t Believe He Got Carl Weathers for The Artful Escape, Either

The Artful Escape is finally out on Xbox consoles and PC and it has been a long time coming. It was originally a failed Kickstarter from 2016 that gained life when Annapurna Interactive swooped in to help Johnny Galvatron, the game’s director. Senior Gaming Editor Michael Leri interviewed “Galvatron” (which is, as you may have guess, not his real name) about the title’s long development, how starstruck he was working with Hollywood talent, his thoughts on whether a star-studded cast detracts fro...

Francis Of Delirium – “Come Out And Play”

Earlier this year, Francis Of Delirium impressed us with their sophomore EP, Wading. Led by the young Luxembourg-based musician Jana Bahrich, that EP had some fearsomely high-drama rock songs that combined a bunch of different guitar genres into a blender. Bahrich has focused in on shoegaze for her next release, a new track called “Come Out And Play” that’s searing and fuzzy and and maudlin.

The Artful Escape Review: A Heartfelt Space Oddity That’s Light on Gameplay

Music is not always just about the music; it’s about the persona, the fireworks, or the lifestyle as well as the actual tunes. David Bowie understood this with his alter ego Ziggy Stardust. The Artful Escape is like a gamified version of Bowie finding his inner Stardust and is appropriately otherworldly and enrapturing, even if it is light on the “gamified” part. Francis Vendetti has a lot on his shoulders. He’s the nephew of a local small town musical legend, a Bob Dylan-like character named Jo...

Rich Archbold: Afghanistan withdrawal too late for sons of Gold Star Mothers

The withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan last week came too late for U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer Edward Balli and Navy Lt. Francis Toner. Both Balli and Toner were killed in separate combat actions years ago in war-torn Afghanistan, where U.S. forces fought for 20 years before the final withdrawal last week. Their mothers, who live at the Gold Star Manor in Long Beach, said last week in separate interviews that they were glad to see the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan — ...
