"This is one of my favorite books, which talks about a family over several generations and that has received a curse. The mix of genres between fantasy and realism is very successful. The book is full of details and full of imagination. It is an awesome intellectual exercise."
"This place is a place where we meet and hang out a lot with my friends. It is also a place where I have attended a lot of social events during my student years such as demonstrations and gatherings. Those events are still very important to me because it is about causes I support."
"Paris is wonderful for this kind of festival, you have access to some very not known movies that you could not see in a regular cinema during l’étrange festival and also to some conference about cinema with movie directors from all over the world talking about what is making movie today."
"Its a “big” arch made of stone that is not really beautiful or ugly and that is standing there with people ignoring it or pigeons that shit on it, it’s my life as a student because every morning and every night I pass throught it or walked near by it since it was close to my home and it’s on the way to go to the subway station."
"There are always the best exhibitions and they vary a lot !" ... "As a graphic design student i always enjoy going to the Palais de Tokyo wether to see an exhibition or going to the library, i feel it’s one of the centers of parisien culture and it’s probably one of the greatest museums of Paris nowadays."
"The world of the artist is very representative of where I study and where I come from. There’s a weird vibe of nostalgia and cloud. The fact that he speaks a very weird urban french is also a plus. Also there’s a music called “Insomnie” (Insomnia), which is pretty much my life as a student 😉"
"As my grandmother told me while younger, “excellence is made of details, but excellence is everything but a detail”. The core of this book is about one simple word changing over the time in the Bible, leading to massive drift in society approach to rights and duty. I’ve always tried to keep in mind that one word can change one’s life."
"When we walk in the streets or when we take public transportation, it is always a pleasant surprise to discover new pieces of art. And this is what happened all along the metro 6 in the 13th district of Paris where street artists redecorated many buildings that are visible when you take the metro. There are also many street artworks in the streets of the 13th."
"Within the french educational system, the main road to leading schools is called “preparation classes”. Going through this might be long and painfull. But if you keep going on, and even fight after, you might in the end up in a very good school. Then, keeping in mind French “meritocratic” system and elitism, only those few will be able to hear the acclamations."
"Its a “child” fairy tale somehow with characters represented by music, I used and still use this 30min “song” to help me relax or to think to something else, also I had to take subway for 30min to go to school so it fits perfectly the duration and make me escape the routine before getting into class."
"This is from masterly music compositor Vangelis for the movie Blade Runner (Ridley Scott), it’s not from France at all but i used to look at this movie a lot when I was a kid and know I’m often listening to this soundtrack when working. For me this song nourishes my creativity."
