New Charlotte Gainsbourg (avec Beck!)


Charlotte Gainsbourg, 'spill favourite, much donded on the mothership, tremendous actress, impeccable of birth, cement of garden, is BACK!

Or should i say "IS BECK", as he's written and produced the lions share of the new record. Her first album, that received so much 'Spiller love, was a merry mix of Air, Jarvis Cocker, and Neil Hannon from the Divine Comedy - and is well worth seeking out.


I have my reservations about the new song, as there doesn't seem to be much Charlotte on it, or in it, or around it. I think mebbe it needs to be heard in context of the new record.

What a fantastic Romanesque profile, not extreme enough for a sculpture, but cool none the less - I'd never noticed before...

I think the track is corking on first and second listen.. but as you say - not really for her... I just wanna bash some drums along with it at the end.

i have always admired her chin, but the nose takes the biscuit in this picture.

Why am I listening to a dubstep remix of Dire Straits "Money For Nothing" - it must be bedtime!

And speaking of this pictore, when you gonna tell us how to post 'em big? That's only 120 kb, I often post bigger than that but have never come close to this one.
The only reason I ask is 'cos there'll be some new pics if Tinny and you don't want to insult him, good customer an' all.

That photo is on flickr - I just linked to it - what i tend to do is use google images to find what i want, and if it's the right size on the screen i link to it via the add image button.

Blimpo: Still doesn't make any sense, there's something happening here, as they say, that I don't understand. It shouldn't make any difference where the picture comes from, image size should be what governs size. Take the picture of the 'Three stooges', that's a tiny 20 kb file, on my 24" screen it shows as 31/2" by 41/2" but if I click on it it expands to 13" by 20"! If I check Shane's 'moneyshot' it's 28kb [larger] and the same size on the screen as the 3 stooges but it doesn't increase with a double click!
What would be interesting to know if Shane and Tatanka are listening is what were the physical dimensions and the resolution of those pics before they posted 'em, in inches, height and width and dpi.
Your camera shoots images measured in MB's and at resolutions up to 300dpi, either you or blogspot reduces them to kilobytes and 75dpi for 'publication',
I was working on a couple of images yesterday afternoon, I might do a post later to see if I can vary the image size here.
