Lui et Léa


»It’s the whim of a spoiled kid.« French writer Frédéric Beigbeder (»Mémoires d’un jeune homme dérangé«, »99 francs«) is editorial director of the freshly relaunched LUI, the unmistakably Parisian pendant to Playboy and »Le magazine de l’homme moderne«, as it was called way back in the 60s to 80s. Then, they had Romy Schneider, Mireille Darc, Sylvia Kristel or Jane Birkin. Now, the brand new first volume of the mag, offered for the dumping price of 2,90 Euros, features actress Léa Seydoux, along with a lot of worthwhile reading. And Beigbeder has a new byname you’ve already guessed: L’homme qui amait des femmes.

A Bicyclette

Tour de France started yesterday. Usually an opportunity to post a bicycle-mix on this blog (like we did here, and here). It’s a little different this year. If you’re Dutch, you might want to check out the 25 Bestest French Bicycle Songs that FransS and me chose for literary cycling magazine De Muur. Every day during this Tour, website Het is Koers will post one of the tracks. The Spotify-list that goes with it, is here. The pictures was taken from this page.
