In case you’re feeling homesick, there are two summer blues festivals coming up in France! (OK, there’s also rockabilly and country and more…).
- The Nuits du Blues (August 23-25) in Béthune in northern France. Excellent poster above. Featuring a real live Stray Cat!
If you decide to go, let me know. These are definitely road trip material!
Mike Rosenthal (@vectorbelly) has created Twitter: The Comic, a Tumblr blog of comics made from tweets, some his own, some by others.
There’s some random, twisted stuff on Twitter, as you may have noticed. But it makes for some interesting art.
This one, of course, is our favorite.
Based on this tweet by @DankHerbMullet.
If you’d like to sleep inside a fairy tale, you might want to pay a visit to La Balade des Gnômes, a quiet bed and breakfast where you can live out your fairy tale dreams, including one inside the belly of a wooden bull.

We just love the look of Paper City Paris! | Made by Joel. Cut out the Eiffel Tower and more, in addition to these little people and the classic car. Rainy-day fun for your little francophile? We’re sure you can think of many more uses for these adorable–and free–paper cutouts!
Always advisable to follow the rules…

Photographer couple Max & Charlotte have created a series of Where’s Waldo-inspired photos at iconic locations all over Paris. We’re not sure there actually is a Charlie to find in these photos, but it’s tons of fun to study the details.
The French love to play with language, so it’s no surprise somebody decided to change all the names of Paris métro stops into wacky anagrams. We like Clefs au vieillard for Filles du Calvaire on line 8 (lavender). Lots more to discover on the complete map at Anagrammes de Métro!
Hosted by Francophilia and 52martinis. Details and RSVP here!
