Deleting posts!?

Yes, indeed, I think it was time for me to clean the blog and remove my personal stuff out there.

I'll keep posting I guess, but I don't want to talk about private things including my family life/issues, health issues, my school life, my opinion on such subjects and my doubts about life, etc.

I have been quite open and honest, and I really like expressing myself, but I don't want "fans" from youtube or strangers to know intimate information about my life.

Hope you understand. I have no idea if I keep the blog for the moment...
I'll think of something new. I'm gonna build my website too with a new blog on there that will be more focused about music and art. I might start a new anonymous blog to express myself if I see that it's not enough, and because I like to talk a lot... In the mean time i'm gonna vlog a little : http://youtube.com/polluxion

Cheers.

The Hollister Rant

This upcoming rant is more a pointless than something very serious. But I feel like I need to talk about it!! Unfortunately after finished writing my perfect and long blog post, I lost it all as I was on the wrong Youtube account... that could be a subject of another rant, lol.

So to calm down I'm playing an album I just got, from the band
Fun. This video is not the official video but I found it more interesting than a picture of the cover along with the audio.


So, yes, if you are in the US you know that Abercrombie&Fitch and Hollister are very popular brands for teenagers and young men. We don't have them in Europe, but since 2008 the very 'cool' and fashionable people here want to wear it too.

I never had anything from them, because of the price, and I wasn't that interested much either even if they are very beautiful clothes, and it is exactly my style. I was told the quality was good too.
I have an obsession for birds especially eagles, but not only, and I'm famous among my friends for imitating the seagull scream so well. So I find the Hollister clothes very nice. I thought 'why not' but not really.

But in february my best friend Nick gave me one Abercombie shirt that didn't fit him, it's kids size [boys XL].
And I was very impressed by the quality because it's thick, like heavy and all, and so I liked it a lot. It was a little too big for me, but that's OK I still wear it.

I, of course, wanted a Hollister one too. Quality + Seagull = Yay.

But I couldn't find the junior department of Hollister. Actually I found the website, and they don't have kids clothes. Abercrombie has two websites in fact, one for adults and one for kids.
Is it important to specify that I'm 5' tall and not especially thin [but not fat]. I can't wear adult clothes because that would mean in the case of a shirt having it near my knees, the sleeves two times longer and even the shoulders.. bleh. not my fault, I am how I'm built. But it becomes a pain to actually find boys clothes that don't look childish, because I am now a young man and not a baby anymore. See. So those brands are very appropriate.

So, I sent someone on a mission to Hollister stores to ask if they had kids clothes.
The seller has said that the clothes are designed for the youth. Of course it's obvious that you have not allowed to wear that if you have body hair or a big belly! Or even grey hair I'd say!
She said also that the sizes are quite small. That was a lie though.
Of course I was sceptical, it's "small" in a way that you have to be SKINNY and tall. It doesn't make sense. I had a doubt and so I checked the size charts on both websites to compare.
So Hollister small = Abercrombie small. Logical.
Problem was : I needed kids sizes. Boys Large.
The only option left finally was to get the A&F thing, and that's all. Thing is I don't care about that MOOSE that I can't even recognize... lol. At least it fits me perfectly, if I don't put on some weight!!

What makes me feel weird is that Hollister is shitting on its own market. They make clothes for youth but not for kids, so who do they think is interested in buying them??
Teenagers! Young adults. Are they all 6' tall and thin?
So they exclude potential customers...

People come in different shapes and sizes, and all, you know! Just saying.

Randomness, Youtube became my whole life..

Yeah, so... no, sorry nothing to say. =]
I've been recently quite noticed on Youtube because I covered a Justin Bieber song, so I got kinda "attacked" by JB's fans. It's quite calm now, but the past few days were a little funny.
Either insulted like "You don't sing like him, you are not as good as him, just stop." Or either like "OMG you're so cute can you cover also 'one time' and 'one less lonely girl' and I love you...".
LOL?
I got lucky it wasn't that much and it didn't last.

But I just picked a random comment I received tonight. I got a lot more of course recently [and continuously] and from long time friends, or new fans. And it makes me so happy, like a little more self-confident. But yeah I like this one because it's from someone I don't personally know but who is a relative of someone I adore.

I think you are being to modest about your own talent though. I think you have a very special voice and and singing-style which gives everything you do a very special touch. I always look forward to your videos. You seem to have a very good personality also.
=]

Other great news. You know that I change my mind every 5 minutes...right?
You already know that I'm not addicted to Oreo anymore ?
Overdose.

Well, right now I decided that I didn't want to collect postcards anymore, hmm not too sure though because I still adore them so much.
BUT! I have found a new random thing to collect.
Something that is going to be very hard to get and that is very rare!
I will collect other youtubers cards, but only the limited MOO cards!!
***THOSE ONES***
So I already know that I will have one card, from Bill Elder [billtvmacon], and we were joking about the fact that these cards are gonna be the currency of the upcoming Youtube Gatherings. Such as kids exchanging baseball players cards in the playground.
If you can get any "Youtube Moo card", please send it to me and I'll love you forever!!!
Gosh, it seems Youtube has become my life, please... give me a life!! lol
Oh it just reminds me a french song about a girl taking the life of someone else. Enjoy.

I've got sunshine

This is my friend Zak and I'm proud of him.
He was on TV yesterday evening (recorded last October though if my memory is exact). And I really like the harmonies by his brother (and Adrien's haircut! loool).

As you can hear, his voice is starting changing (it's more obvious it you listen to his CD "The last memories of my old house" that you must have!). I wish my voice will change soon too... (sigh)


The other live video from the show!


I miss him.
I miss those moments where we were playing ukulele in the park (way before he recorded a CD and became too busy)

You can appreciate my ridiculous haircuts through the years too :

I like hobos. I hate Santa.

There is something strange that you have to know about me.
This is how I fall in love.
And you're probably wondering what particular way it is...

I like voices.

Of course, like every human being, I look at the outfit a little too. But it's not what's the most important with me !!
I already fell in love with people I have never seen but have talked to (Hazel, for example). I often enjoy listening to some friends talking - just for the nice sound of their voice. (I won't give names though..).
Yes, you are right, it's not called "falling in love" - it is probably just the way I get attached to people...
It's totally out of my control. A warm voice will always make me feel better even if I don't listen to the words. And sometimes even the nicest words said with a voice that I don't especially appreciate won't do nothing. I know for sure that someone singing for me will have more chances of ending as a boyfriend than someone saying a compliment and flirting.. lol

I even found some extracts from my myspace blog past year explaining it :
I love Hazel with all my heart. I talked to her on skype for a while. Like I said before, when I feel sad, one little voice could change everything. And she is one of the rare friends who has this power. When she talks to me, she's not only friendly, but she cares about me more than my family (but that's easy because my family doesn't)... [November 07, 2008]


Yesterday night I talked for the first time to Hazel on Skype. I know her since more than a year. I'll never know her name, her age, her job, or any personal information. But I love her. And her voice was really sweet. She is sooooo nice, so kind.
In fact, with me, everything comes with the voice. I like someone because of his voice. It always works like that. That's why I also fall in love easily with singers.
I can't call it love. But I like Hazel. How could you like a mysterious screenname? Like that! I can't wait to hear from her soon. But now I want to talk to Ross, I miss his voice. I don't know why. In a way I'm in love with him too. But I'm always on withdrawal when I don't listen to some voices for a long time. [ November 04, 2008 ]



The reason I say all this is because I recently watched again one of my favorite movies called Shortbus by John Cameron Mitchell (I was fan of him since Hedwig and the angry inch).
There's two of my favorite singers in that movie (and the soundtrack).

Scott Matthew.
Seriously, he looks like a hobo. Hairy and really messy. But he made me love ukulele. His voice is so sweet. I listen to him all the time. And he made me love his style and I find him so damn cute now!! <3
videoHe's less famous than the Herman Dune and many others. But I think he's better than them!!!


Jay Brannan.
No need to introduce him, he's a gay icon. You might remember him (and his body) from Shortbus too...
I still love his voice very much, and even if he doesn't look like a hobo, I love him for sharing my hate of Christmas so much. Listen to his sweet voice please!
&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;a href="http://jaybrannan.bandcamp.com/album/christmas-really-sucks"&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;Christmas Really Sucks by Jay Brannan&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;

And you, who are the singers making you feel so relaxed, happy and warm ??
What is the feature you really look the most on someone ?
Do you like voices ?
