Bob Dylan, you say? Where is your ID?

The news was posted last week on CNN: Bob Dylan a complete unknown in New Jersey town and we were stunned when we read it. How comes someone still doesn’t recognize Bob Dylan? The story: ‘The rock legend was stopped in July by police in Long Branch, New Jersey […] Officer Kristie Buble, 24, approached Dylan and asked him for his name…‘ Seriously, Kristie? A few minutes later, everything went back to normal in Long Branch, New ...


Milly Carnivora by Victoire de Castellane

    Chic and Couture, that’s it. When I first saw the new Milly Carnivora created by Victoire de Castellane for Christian Dior on Dior Joaillerie website, I said to myself: ‘I wish I could buy this flower!’. I have no idea how high the price of this jewelry is but it must worth it…       The Milly Carnivora is Christian Dior’s new collection of imaginary flowers and it’s beautiful. Victoire de Castellane is a ...

Aung San Suu Kyi back to home confinement

  Aung San Suu Kyi, Burmese Human Rights Activist, was found guilty of violating the terms of her house arrest by a military court Tuesday. The court sentenced Suu Kyi to a year-and-a-half of house arrest. On May 3, John William Yettaw, a 53-year-old former military serviceman from Falcon, Missouri, illegally entered Suu Kyi’s home and stayed there for two days. This presence violated Suu Kyi’s house arrest and she has been sentenced to ...


The (new) blood diamonds: it ain’t a movie…

Just before the week-end, and after 10 days the Sama Gazette has been online, we thought it was time to talk about serious things. We know an expert in serious topics (initials are M and D, ring a bell?) so the bar is set high. This is also our first post in the Raison d’être category and we want to talk about an article we read just a few days ago on the Boston Globe: The new blood diamonds by John Prendergast. He is co-founder of the project ...


Mat Benote at Guggenheim: yes, he can!

  Galleries, museums… Places for artists to expose their art. Why not. But not only. And not for all artists. An incident took place at the Guggenheim this weekend, during normal business hours, without notice from security cameras or museum guards. Artist Mat Benote hung one of his own pieces on the famous walls, a movement he describes as “Fine Art Graffiti“.   Banksy and many others before him, did the same. So what are they? ...


Who is Sliimy? The late answer…

Ten days ago, everyone on Twitter was asking: ‘Who is Sliimy?’. Apparently, everything started when Lady Gaga made a Twitter update asking who was Sliimy. Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, DJ AM and many other celebrities also wanted to know, thus making ‘Who is Sliimy?’ a trending topic on Twitter within a few hours… They could easily have found the answer by simply checking Sliimy’s Myspace. Anyway. ...


Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd

    How would you define a Geek? Do you know some Geeks? Are you a Geek yourself? We had to check so we had a look at Wikipedia > Geek and here is what we found:   – A derogatory reference to a person obsessed with intellectual pursuits for their own sake, who is also deficient in most other human attributes so as to impair the person’s smooth operation within society.   But also:   – A more recent school of thought sees Nerd as ...


Julie & Julia: ‘Bon appétit!’

For our first post in the ‘Bon vivant’ Category, we wanted to honor one of the many epicurean pleasures a ‘bon vivant’ enjoys. Food, that it. Food in a movie. “Julie & Julia” is an upcoming 2009 comedy-drama film, written and directed by Nora Ephron, depicting events in the life of famed chef Julia Child. Based on two bestselling memoirs: Powell’s Julie & Julia and My Life in France, by Julia Child with ...


The Sama Gazette is now online!

The Sama Gazette was created in 2007 by Max Dana and it’s now online! We are very happy and we already have so much to share with you. The concept behind the Sama Gazette is simple and it’s explained on this page if you don’t already know about it. As you may have already noticed, we used French words to name our categories; a ‘clin d’oeil’ to our French roots. They’re common words frequently used in ...
