The clocks have sprung forward, spring is slowly getting out of bed and stretching its rested arms, and for the first time in my life, I went through an entire winter with no snow. To me that's like... well, like winter without snow. In honour of the wonderful flakes that never fell and the winter never truly realised, I'm posting the little video I shot last winter during a glorious snowfall that lasted hours. It's not the same but it'll have to do until next winter... I hope.

"Well, if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine"

The amazing album "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" turns 50 this year. This one album captured the true sound of America in one record as much as anything by Hank Williams, George Gershwin, Aaron Copland or Hoagy Carmichael. It brought folk from college campuses onto radio in a non-radio friendly, non-pop, non-diluted form for the first time. And in my opinion, Dylan has never been better or transcended more on two sides than on this record.

A part of Upper Manhattan and New York's soul, of what many of us think of when we think of New York, closes today, quieting one of the last remaining cries of hope that this city, which had always defined so much about urban life could ever continue to do so in the future. One more step towards New York being an antiseptic and overblown pastiche of the average and the mainstream, rather than a glorious blend of the United States and the whole world.

The article below from +West Side Rag, the only news source with a true sense of the pulse of the Upper West Side of Manhattan...

Nothing in Paris can make you feel as guilty as walking by your 'baguette bakery' eating a croissant from your 'croissant bakery'.

The place with a card minimum and with no bank machines nearby is where you'll end up without cash wanting something that costs 2.61

There are times when I go somewhere here or visit something and instantly feel that I should photograph it to have a reminder. And I have to remind myself that I can go back any time I want because I live here now. And then I appreciate it even more. I don't want to ever forget that feeling.

Since moving to Paris, in talking about my project in France and mentioning the short film that kicked off my web distribution idea, I've been asked more than once by locals (I know, surprised me as well) if the film was available with French subtitles.
So, my website now includes a link to "Chant de Relations" avec sous-titres en français. So, pour ceux d'entre vous qui l'ont demandé, enjoy and please share avec vos amis.
