Well, yeah, but it was a McQueen remake. Though, Thomas Crown was quite good, so I may just be surprised, but I don't expect it to be good.

Hi Faithwyn, ange and Panerai ! Um, regarding "The Magnificent Seven", honestly you never know what to expect with those remakes sometimes... so wait & see.

And hi everybody ! So what's up in the world apart from 4/20 ? Well, I did notice that article today, banana lovers will understand my choice. I confess, I am indeed a banana eater. I can't imagine the world without it.. And I've added a few pics and just a few trailers today. So let's go. UB2IUq3.gif


Experts race to stop bananapocalypse from hitting Latin American producers
‘Fusarium wilt’ is the hot topic at the International Banana Congress, where some fear it may already be too late to save the Cavendish from the fungal disease

Banana experts from around the world have gathered in Florida to find a way to halt a disease that is wiping out the fruit across the world, amid mounting fears that it may soon invade Latin America.
The International Banana Congress was shifted to Miami at the last minute from Costa Rica, following concerns that attendees would spread the disease, known as “Panama disease” or “Fusarium wilt”, to the region via contaminated soil on their shoes.

The fungal disease has already decimated banana crops in south-east Asia, virtually wiping out Indonesia’s banana exports and causing misery for growers in the Philippines, China, the Middle East and parts of Africa. Fusarium wilt was first seen in Australia and Taiwan and is spread via soil, water and contaminated farm equipment.

About 1,000 delegates at the International Banana Congress are desperately attempting to craft a plan to both stop the spread of the disease and also find a replacement type of banana that won’t be susceptible to the fungus.

Should the disease affect banana crops in South America, the $36bn banana industry could be faced with escalating prices and many smaller operators going out of business. Demand for the produce remains strong: Americans eat bananas almost as much as apples and oranges combined.

Fazil Dusunceli, an expert at the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, said there was little confidence the disease could be stopped before it reaches Latin America, which has caused “increased worry and panic” among growers of the popular yellow fruit.

“Though spread may not be immediate it would cause greater concern among the major banana producing and exporting countries,” he told the Guardian. “In fact, the problem is when it is noticed, it may be already too late to effectively stop it from spreading, as the disease may have spread further.

“Although not yet detected in Latin America it is considered as a major concern because once the disease gets into a plantation, it is not possible to eradicate it fully and very difficult to stop its spread. Thus its prevention is key for its control and countries need to be watchful and prepared.”

Fusarium wilt is the biggest crisis facing the banana industry since a different strain of fungus wiped out crops across Latin America in the first half of the last century. Banana splits can only be enjoyed worldwide today due to a decision to switch from the Gros Michel banana – then the industry favorite – to the Cavendish. Although less tasty than the luxuriant Gros Michel, the Cavendish was resistant to the fungus.

Unfortunately the Cavendish, which now represents 99% of the banana market, is falling victim to the latest fungal outbreak, causing furrowed brows among banana researchers who have toiled for years to find a suitable replacement.

Hope lies in a promising contender known rather coldly as GCTCV-219, devised by the Taiwan Banana Research Institute. Taiwanese banana scientists claim the new genre has a shape and taste similar to the ailing Cavendish.

However, Dusunceli has a note of caution for banana enthusiasts. “Although many institutions are working on development of resistant varieties and there are some promising developments in this regard, as for now there is no confirmed variety fully resistant to the disease and adaptive to different conditions for wide-scale use,” he said.

While the global supply is unlikely to come under any short-term pressure, the banana industry is using the conference to ensure there are no further complications in the development of their prized crop.

“We have to work together, united, to find progress on this,” said Jorge Sauma, chief executive of Costa Rica’s National Banana Corporation. “It’s difficult to predict the future of the Cavendish. If you do all the measures together and work together, it’s possible to stop the disease. It’s difficult to tell the future but we are positive. We have the best brains from five continents here to work this out.”

Hi ange, oh thank you so much for this great news, I actually found a teaser since you mentioned it, I can't wait ... And I hope that you'll have some nice weather this week, much better than here .. Oh my, winter is back or coming ha ha ha, some cold rain the whole week end ... Brrr.

So what's up in the world, well I actually heard the sad news just before logging out last night, ... I'll just post this article plus some pics and my favorite song of him. Because I respect also the fact that everybody isn't a Prince's fan obviously. So I've added some recent movie trailers in the end of the post. So let's go.


(Prince by Herb Ritts 1991).

Prince: autopsy under way after death of singer at Paisley Park
No details were released as medical examiner’s office said it could takes days to determine cause of death and weeks to receive results of toxicology test

A postmortem examination began on Friday on the body of Prince, who died at his Paisley Park home aged 57, leaving behind him a gaping hole in musical genres as diverse as R&B, rock, funk and pop.

The autopsy, which began at 9am local time, will seek to determine the cause of Prince’s death, less than 24 hours after first responders found him unresponsive at his estate.

Prince was found collapsed in a lift at the premises outside Minneapolis, which doubled as his music studio. According to a transcript of a 9.43am emergency call released on Friday, an unidentified male caller said he was dead and replied: “Yes, it’s Prince” when asked if he was with the person. Prince was pronounced dead at the scene at 10.07am on Thursday.

No details were immediately given for the cause of death, though last week he was rushed to hospital apparently recovering from a bout of flu that had forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. At the time, a representative for Prince assured fans that he was feeling much better and was resting at home in Paisley Park.

The Midwest medical examiner’s office said on Friday morning that it could take days to determine the cause of death, and weeks to receive the results of toxicology tests.

The autopsy was being conducted in Ramsay, Minnesota, by the office’s chief medical examiner, Dr A Quinn Strobl, a forensic, anatomic and clinical pathologist, who will collect any information on Prince’s medical and social history that is “relevant to the investigation”.

Just five days ago the singer made an appearance at a dance party held at the estate where he told fans: “Just wait a few days before saying your prayers.”

The sudden death of the diminutive man who became such a towering musical figure, selling more than 100m records in a career of virtually unparalleled richness and unpredictability, prompted an emotional response across the music world. Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman, former members of Prince’s band, the Revolution, said they were “completely shocked and devastated by the sudden loss of our brother, artist and friend, Prince”.

On Twitter, fellow musicians and celebrities vented barely contained grief. Boy George called Thursday “the worst day ever”; Katy Perry said: “And just like that … the world lost a lot of magic.” The Minneapolis-St Paul radio station 89.3, The Current, played his music on a permanent loop.

Barack Obama, who was flying from Saudi Arabia to London on Air Force One when the news broke, said he was mourning along with millions of fans. “Few artists have influenced the sound and trajectory of popular music more distinctly, or touched quite so many people with their talent. As one of the most gifted and prolific musicians of our time, Prince did it all.”

The US space agency, Nasa, tweeted a picture of a “purple nebula, in honor of Prince, who passed away today”.

Hundreds of fans gathered outside the singer’s Paisley Park home on Thursday to pay their respects to the superstar and musical pioneer. Some wore purple as others spread purple flowers across a makeshift memorial protected by volunteers at the compound.

The road outside the house was blocked off as news trucks gathered and fans came to pay their respects. A sign in the middle of the memorial read “RIP Prince” with a broken heart drawn between each word.

Vehicles were parked in and around the compound despite the local county sheriff department’s best efforts. A barrier was erected between the memorial and the crowd, fans said, out of respect for the family.

A poster hung along the fence was signed by fans reflecting on why the music legend was important to them. One read: “Thank you for teaching me to dance.” Another: “Your music always plays in our hearts.”

Kristin Doolittle, a resident of the nearby town of Chaska, visited Paisley with her daughter Anna. She recalled first hearing Purple Rain when she was 13 – a “magical moment”, she said. “I took a dance class and I did a tap routine to Delirious,” Doolittle said. There isn’t an equal counterpart to Prince in music history, she added, recalling a concert she attended about 10 years ago.

“It just brings back memories of all those songs,” she said of the Prince show. “And it just reiterated to me that he belongs on the stage. He was wonderful and magnificent, and very home on stage.”

The Minneapolis mayor, Betsy Hodges, posted on her blog: “Prince was a child of our city and his love of his hometown permeated many of his songs. Our pride in his accomplishments permeates our love of Minneapolis.”

At First Avenue, the Minneapolis club where Prince filmed the live show scenes for Purple Rain, fans began leaving floral tributes – mostly purple – at the foot of a wall decorated with a star bearing his name. The club announced it was opening for a free all-night dance party in honour of the city’s music hero.

Prince had lived life to the fullest right up to his early demise. If anything the workaholic, who regularly slept three hours a night and would play impromptu concerts until dawn, was accelerating the pace of his hectic schedule when he died.
He cut four albums in his last 18 months, and had let it be known he was writing a memoir that would be released next year. Hours after he was released from hospital on Saturday, the singer announced that he was going to throw a dance party at his music complex that he dubbed “Paisley Park After Dark”.

Standing just 5ft 2in tall, Prince truly had an outsized influence on the world. Born in his beloved Minneapolis on 7 June 1958, his sprawling musical tastes, androgynous style, genre-bending imagination, sexual outrageousness and flirtation with religion left fans forever guessing where he would go next.

His wry, almost satirical relationship with fame, combined with his masterful skills at self-projection, led him to play with his own name. He was christened Prince Rogers Nelson after his father’s stage persona, Prince Rogers.

In 1993, Prince changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol, causing momentary panic across newspapers and publishing houses who scrambled to find ways to replicate it. Their distress was eased when a way out was found with the description “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince”.

That moniker remained until 2000. But far more important was his equal willingness to shatter norms and conventions in music. His love of songwriting stretched right back to childhood – he penned his first song aged seven – and while he was still a teenager he recorded his first demo tape at Moon’s Studio in Minneapolis, earning himself a contract with Warner Bros.

Over the next 40 years he made 40 albums and won seven Grammy awards in a flood of musical output that left even the artist himself bamboozled. Last year, he told the Guardian he had decided to dispense with a band and with a huge back library of previous songs because he found it so hard to marshal.

“Tempo, keys, all those things can dictate what song I’m going to play next, you know, as opposed to, ‘Oh, I’ve got to do my hit single now, I’ve got to play this album all the way through,’ or whatever. There’s so much material, it’s hard to choose. It’s hard.”

His breakthrough came with the 1979 album Prince, which hit the top of the Billboard R&B charts and contained the smash singles Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad? and I Wanna Be Your Lover. Dirty Mind (1980) and Controversy (1981) both managed to attract musical admiration but also, as the latter title suggested, provoke a firestorm of criticism for their edgy interplay between religion and sexuality. With every cleverly concocted row, Prince’s star shone brighter.

But it was in 1984 with Purple Rain that he really captured global adulation. Purple Rain was not so much an album and film, it was a cultural phenomenon. The song of the same name, with its first verse dedicated to his father and recorded over a daring 13 minutes in the First Avenue club in Minneapolis, went on to provide the skeleton structure for both album and movie.

Prince was rewarded with 13m sales of the album. The film, featuring a central character called “The Kid” who leans heavily on Prince’s own life story, won him an Oscar for songwriting.

While other artists who cut their teeth in the 1970s have settled for repetitive revivals of their past glories, none of that would satisfy Prince. With the passing of the millennium, his creative production and desire to explore new pastures only grew more intense.

In 2007, he performed a 12-minute set at the Super Bowl that has widely been credited as the greatest half-time show ever at the footballing event. Then, from February 2014 to June 2015 he went on a series of Hit N Run tour dates, wreaking havoc across 15 cities for 39 gigs in a little over a year.

Flanked by his band 3rdeyegirl, the Purple One’s guerrilla gigs would be confirmed sometimes no sooner than a few hours before via Twitter. Stopping in at locations from London to Louisville, Paris to Montreal, his epic sets would take place in a litany of shapes and sizes, at jazz clubs and arenas.

Those who witnessed his most intimate performances were rewarded, after hours standing in snaking queues, with a greatest hits funk extravaganza, with the likes of Let’s Go Crazy, 1999 and Little Red Corvette performed so close you could stare into the whites of his eyes.

His final shows were last week at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, where a strict no photos or video rule was in place for two consecutive sets. Billed as the Piano and a Microphone tour, Prince played solo at a purple grand piano.

Before concluding with Kiss, his third encore performance in the earlier show, Prince sang Heroes in tribute to David Bowie, who died in January. Back on stage within the hour for his final late night show, he ended with three encores and a medley of Purple Rain, The Beautiful Ones and Diamonds and Pearls.

When the Guardian visited him in Paisley Park last year, he described spending the previous night just playing to himself for three hours without pause.

“I just couldn’t stop. That’s what you want. Transcendence. When that happens … Oh, boy.”

Hi ange ! I hope that you had a nice week end despite the weather.. It's still pretty cold here as well. So as I just told you, I'm going to take a little break indeed for a little while in here, it's just too much work ,yes it is , plus the everyday life ... So before I blow a fuse or something, it's better to stop. So here is my little post to wish you all a great week ahead. I'll pop in here once in while if I find something really inspiring and to say hi to my friends. I wished that I was a computer, but I'm not, just a human being nothing else.


Chris McClure poses on the cover of Arctic Monkeys’ debut album, 2006
I said, “What do you want me to do?” They said, “Go out and get drunk – come back after midnight.” I got back after 2am. Everything was blurry’

I first met the Arctic Monkeys on the last bus home. We were 16. We’d go to the same gigs in Sheffield, then see each other on the number 77 – so we became friends. When they went on their first tour, I was their guitar tech: I couldn’t tune a guitar to save my life, but I think they wanted someone who was part of the gang.

I was studying sociology at Manchester Metropolitan University when I got a call from Andy Nicholson, the bassist. They were working on their debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, and wanted pictures of a guy on a night out for the artwork. There was no suggestion it was for the cover. Andy asked if I’d do it, and I said why not? I’m not sure why me. I never asked. I think they just wanted someone normal.

I went to Liverpool with a couple of pals. The band weren’t there; they were on tour. We met the photographer and assistants in a bar at 2pm. I said: “What do you want us to do?” They said: “Go out and get drunk – come back after midnight.” They gave us a wad of cash, literally hundreds of pounds. We were young and made the most of it. When I arrived back it was gone 2am. There was a venue below the bar and we did the pictures there, just me sat on a stool. They gave me more whisky and I threw up half way through. Everything was blurry.

The band loved the results. When I saw them three weeks later they’d already decided to use one on the cover. I was pleased but I don’t think I grasped how massive it was going to be. It was only on the day the album was released, in January 2006, I thought: “Shit, what have I let myself in for?”

That Monday, my phone never stopped. It was bonkers; like being dipped into fame. Everyone in the world wanted to know who I was. I worked part-time in a pub and I got a call from the landlord to say there were 15 reporters there looking for me; another five were outside my mum’s house. The TV channel E4 asked me to present slots. The Daily Star offered me £10,000 to let a photographer follow me on a night out. They said they’d bring along a couple of models. When you’re 19, it’s not easy to refuse, but I didn’t want to sell the band out. I refused everything apart from interviews with Soccer AM and BBC News.

It made student life surreal. I’d go to house parties and my face would be in the bedrooms. Strangers would ask me to do the cigarette pose. Clubs would call and offer free drinks all night if I just went down. I think that album cover is the reason I only got a 2:2 degree.

The best was when I went to see Noel Gallagher at The Lowry. I used to work there so I went backstage. Noel did a double take. He said: “I’ve got you hanging in my house!” I said: “I’ve got you in mine!”

It wasn’t all good. I was at a gig once and this guy kept putting his cig in my face. And some people said we were promoting smoking, but I didn’t worry myself about that.

These days, I work with adults with learning difficulties and people recognise me less. I get the odd person saying they know me from somewhere but I shrug it off. I don’t tell people. I’m a creative person – I’ve been in bands and I’m writing a sitcom – and I don’t want to be remembered as just a guy on an album cover. I still see the band. Me and Alex [Turner] went to the football recently.

Would I do it again? Absolutely. The only thing I might change is the money. I got paid £750 for that night. I should have asked for 10p of every album sale.

Hi ange and Panerai, I hope that you had both a great Sunday ? For my part, a bit of sunbathing... Yep, for the first time in months, I felt like a lizard drinking all that sun.. But I still look like a vampire , so I guess that it will take some time to actually look like a movie star again.. Anyways, so there is indeed a change of title as you may have noticed, I thought that it would be more appropriate. I can't tell you yet if it will be a weekly or a monthly.. But I'll try to post regularly a little something I promise. So I obviously missed all the new exciting movie trailers last week. I bet that you've seen them all by now, so let's say that I re-post them in here as a reminder more than anything. But I did add ,for the horror movie fans, some recent ones in the end. So let's go.


Armed guards at India's dams as drought grips country
Government says 330 million people are suffering from water shortages after monsoons fail

As young boys plunge into a murky dam to escape the blistering afternoon sun, armed guards stand vigil at one of the few remaining water bodies in a state hit hard by India’s crippling drought.
Desperate farmers from a neighbouring state regularly attempt to steal water from the Barighat dam, forcing authorities in central Madhya Pradesh to protect it with armed guards to ensure supplies.

India is officially in the grip of its worst water crisis in years, with the government saying that about 330 million people, or a quarter of the population, are suffering from drought after the last two monsoons failed.

“Water is more precious than gold in this area,” Purshotam Sirohi, who was hired by the local municipality to protect the dam, in Tikamgarh district, told AFP.
“We are protecting the dam round the clock.”

But the security measures cannot stop the drought from ravaging the dam, with officials saying it holds just one month of reserves.

Four reservoirs in Madhya Pradesh have already dried up, leaving more than a million people with inadequate water and forcing authorities to bring in supplies using trucks.

Almost a 100,000 residents in Tikamgarh get piped water for just two hours every fourth day, while municipal authorities have ordered new bore wells to be dug to meet demand.

But it may not be enough, with officials saying the groundwater level has receded more than 100 feet (30 metres) owing to less than half the average annual rainfall in the past few years.

“The situation is really critical, but we are trying to provide water to everyone,” Laxmi Giri Goswami, chairwoman of Tikamgarh municipality, told AFP.

“We pray to rain gods for mercy,” she said.

In the nearby village of Dargai Khurd, only one of 17 wells has water.

With temperatures hovering around 45C, its 850 residents fear they may soon be left thirsty.

“If it dries up, we won’t have a drop of water to drink,” said Santosh Kumar, a local villager.

Farmers across India rely on the monsoon – a four-month rainy season which starts in June – to cultivate their crops, as the country lacks a robust irrigation system.

Two weak monsoons have resulted in severe water shortages and crop losses in as many as 10 states, prompting extreme measures including curfews near water sources and water trains sent to the worst-affected regions.

Many farmers are now moving to cities and towns to work as labourers to support their families.

At a scruffy, makeshift camp in north Mumbai, in one of the worst-affected states, dozens of migrants who have fled their drought-stricken villages queue to fill plastic containers with water.

Migrants from rural areas usually come to the city in January or February to get jobs on construction sites, but people were still arriving in March and April.

“There are some 300-350 families here. That’s a total of more than 1,000 people,” said Sudhir Rane, a volunteer running the camp in Mumbai’s Ghatkopar suburb. “There is a drought and there is no water back home so more families have come here this year.”

Families are allocated a small space in the dusty wasteland, where rickety tented homes are made from wooden posts and tarpaulin sheets.

“We had no choice but to come here. There was no water, no grain, no work. There was nothing to eat and drink. What could we do?” said 70-year-old Manubai Patole. “We starved for five days. At least here we are getting food.”

Weather forecasters in New Delhi this month predicted an above-average monsoon, offering a ray of hope for the country’s millions of farmers and their families.

But many, like Gassiram Meharwal from Bangaye village in Madhya Pradesh, are not optimistic as they struggle to cultivate their crops.

Meharwal’s two-acre farm has suffered three wheat crop failures in as many years, costing him an estimated 100,000 rupees ($1,500 or £1,000).

“Our fields are doomed, they have almost turned into concrete,” he said.

Thousands of acres of land in his village go uncultivated and fears are mounting for the cattle, which face a shortage of fodder.

Desperate for income, 32-year-old Meharwal, who supports eight members of his family including his children and younger brothers, left to work as a labourer in the city of Gwalior, four hours away.

“There is no guarantee that it will rain this year. Predictions are fine but no one comes to your help when the crops fail,” he said.

“It is better to use your energy breaking stones.”
