No one has told me that Borat was running the New York Marathon this year. For the record, it was windy and freezing. I am still trying to guess how he has succedede to hide this outfit at the departure of the race. Well Done buddy, you are a rockstar now...

I have the chance to attend the Chris Rock show at the Madison Square Garden last week. I already was a fan of Chris, but seeing him live was definitely something big. He has a spot on killer humor helped by perfect stance and comic tricks. Even a guy under severe sedation, would laugh at a Chris Rock show. He was beating on everyone and everything and with the last events it was not too difficult to find topics. I cant choose among all the jokes which ones were the funniest since the level of the one man show was high all the time. Some of our fellow french comics should learn from him especially on his eay to handle subtle gestures to leverage his jokes. For those who have missed him, prepare your dvr for the next HBO special.
The last italian eatery sponsored by "you f. my wife" Robert De Niro in the Greenwich Hotel in the heart of Tribeca. Great scene, if only the surrounding models and movie stars were helped by the food, it could have been perfect. Good point for the wine card though since you can a very good and cheap st Joseph that really worth it. The service is attentive. Will I go again... Yes certainly to grab a drink.

The French comics have a tradition of getting a lot of traction by running for the presidential elections. In the US, it is basically the same except that this time, it could be a real threat to the regular process. Mr Colbert, host of the Colbert report is jokily or not running for president in 08. I have to say that his show and the daily news show are even funnier that our guignols or the other shows on C+. They have strictly no limit on bashing their own guys. They even have protected the French and our cultural choices ( check French bashing on youtube). If i was voting here, i might had think about him. the effect of his announcement has been huge, more that a million user has join a group for him on Facebook in less than a week. Concerns have been raised by other candidates and the federal state about the legality of his campaign. The equivalent of the CSA here are asking themselves if he has the right to auto promote himself on his own tv show. In a nutshell, a candidate from both parties sponsored by Doritos could not necessarily be a bad dude.

"Only in New York...", this expression has never been so true. Here everything is possible after the shop in the east village who is giving away free sandwiches if you accept a free bible, we have this insane challenge. (thx to Matthieu to have found this out). Here is the challenge:
"To Complete the Krispy Kreme Challenge is to:
1) Run 2 miles from the NC State Belltower to the Krispy Kreme on Peace Street.
2) Eat one dozen donuts.
3) Run 2 miles back to the Belltower.
4) Do all this in under one hour.
People always ask if puking is allowed.Don’t puke on purpose.That’s not fair to the rest of us. Keeping the doughnuts down is the real challenge, don’t cheat yourself!"
The records has been set in 24:32, so who is in?

Enjoying the last minutes of the summer in the big apple... Dumbo is a definite spot to chill out even if it is a bit noisy. Do not forget to have a pizza slice in the pizzeria near the river cafe. it will be even tastier after lining up for one hour to get it.
Beach near New York for the annual cleaning event. You will not believe what have been found there, a lot of cute and tasty objects like used condoms, used panties, some weeds, a pool ball, some strange local animals,.... A the end a very well organized and friendly events ended by a surf session.

I know, I know, I have been very quiet for a long time, I have been travelling around Europe those past few Weeks and I am finally back in NYC for a new beginning. At least it has allowed me to make tons of pictures. A lot of things have changed for the best, I have to admit ;-). I will keep you posted
