Baby Hockey

Vous vous souvenez de vos heures passées au bistrot à jouer au baby foot. Enfilant clope sur clope, bourré avec deux bières tièdes, reluquant la serveuse qui finit son CAP hotellerie...que de grands souvenirs d'une jeunesse à la limite du supportable. Et ben, à Moscou, c'est pareil, sauf que c'est un jeu de hockey et qu'on peut l'emmener partout.

Where the Streets have no Name

Near my home, you've got a strange street that is kinda cute. Its name is the 'street with no name'. I like it...perfect to guide the taxis at 5am after the club.

It's raining, mate

I'm not in Moscow but Facebook is the best way to be aware of those important things: it's raining. After 1 month like that, we can't say it's a bad thing. Mainly for the guys in the center (not much difference to be honest).

Hot Chick

Work in P-rogress

Two years ago, I had a drink with the director Ginzburg after shooting some of gthe last scenes of the forthcoming adaptation of Pelevin's book 'Generation P'. Two years and nothing yet. Apparently, they faced a lot of problems in post but it seems that it will go out in fall. For sure, this is one of the most expected Russian film since a long time.

Power of Life

For once, it does not take place in Moscow, but it's too good not to be shared. Just the decoration of an hospital in Krasnodar. Just epic...

Police Viral Video

I remember one of the first things I've been told when I arrive in Moscow 'Pedestrians are obstacles like others'. Russian peope drive badly, that's not new...But the fact that the police is releasing a buzzy montage of security camera shots, that's pretty unusual.

Voyeur Toilets

You already know my passion about the toilets in Moscow. From surprise to surprise, I've talked already about those grounded on the floor, the blue boxes in the street ('Toi Toi' for the connoisseurs), two examples of two toilets in the same place...
Here it is. The Voyeur Toilet or the boudoir. When one is doing the job, the other one can have a look or chat about the weather. Elegant.

Taxi Moscow

No mention about the gipsy cabs all over the city. That taxi commes directly from Marseille, France. An exact copy of the customized Peugeot from the french films Taxi. Even the sign on top was a real one from Marseille Taxi company. Sure you feel like a real cinema star inside. I've seen the driver, well, still few efforts to do...
