Special Report – Radio: Open Your Ears! (Musée des Arts et Métiers)

Hi, faithful Readers. Thank you for coming back to my blog. I kind of feel like I have bailed on you of late, not even giving decent responses to comments on the previous two blogs. I apologize for not following up better. It’s not because I did not appreciate what you had to say! I did. Thank you to everyone who read and commented.

My only excuse is that with my motto of “Life first, blog later!” I have indeed been out, living life! This is a good thing. This is not to say I have abandoned you, entirely. In fact, you may notice I have made some changes around the Alien Parisienne home. I’ve got a new WordPress theme, and behind-the-scenes I have been working on revamping my links page (turning it into pages, plural), with more information for you. I am taking pictures for posts and have plenty of ideas of things to write about that are fermenting in the giant Blog Vat, aka My Brain. One thing I could use is a wee bit more time, or, rather, the ability to better manage what time I do have. *sigh* Can I get a holla from anyone else who struggles with that?!

I’m here today, though, as I have a Special Report where time is of the essence, and where my presence at the press event today means I need to get on the stick and actually post about it quickly to generate that “Internet Buzz” that is hoped-for by the people who invited me. By getting to go to these things (usually courtesy of Paris Paul who is the one who gets the invites – I am usually the +1), it means I have to be on the ball enough to go ahead and write about them tout de suite!

So, here you go. This is a write-up about a new exhibition opening Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at the Musée des Arts et Métiers:

RADIO – OUVREZ GRAND VOS OREILLES! / RADIO – OPEN YOUR EARS!

Special Report: Happy Birthday, K&K Podcast!

Greetings, Readers!

Have I got something good for you today. A party! A celebration.  A fifth birthday has arrived!

On August 20, 2006 a podcast was born.

Over the past few months, I have gotten totally hooked on the Katia and Kyliemac podcast, recorded live on most Saturday evenings here in Paris, France and posted on their site every Wednesday and Sunday. A couple of months ago, I had the genius idea to interview Katia and Kyliemac (aka “Kylie”), just like they interview guests on their show except in writing. So, I got in touch and asked if they would be willing to grant me an interview for my blog, and they were more than happy to do so!

To learn more about the wonderful Katia and the wonderful Kyliemac, please read on!

Special Report — Time Traveler Tours Presents: Beware Madame La Guillotine

Update: As of July 26, 2011, “Beware Madame La Guillotine” is available for the iPhone and iTouch at the iTunes App Store! You can find more information at the App Store Link here.

I’m a lover of tales and I enjoy finding treasure, literal and metaphorical. For who does not enjoy a good treasure hunt?

And while my food allergies/intolerances prohibit me from eating many of the culinary pleasures in Paris, some of the things in which I can partake are Paris’ history and mysteries. It was therefore my great pleasure to have taken, in part, Time Traveler Tours’ presentation of “Beware Madame La Guillotine” on a rainy June afternoon along with its creator, Sarah Towle.

Here in another “Special Report,” I’ll share with you about the tour, a bit of Sarah’s story, and my thoughts on the my experience taking the tour.
