  1. I'm smoking my first one at the moment, that I bought from my local retailer; this is a VERY good cigar, with a blend lying between Cohiba and Upmann… I forgot to check the box code so I don't know how old it is, but I'm really enjoying it (with a glass of rum). It's not strong but the smoke offers a great viscosity and "longueur en bouche" (=finish).

    I am a bigger fan of the books than the series...and my patience has been sorely tested on the book front...the last two (which were supposed to be one book) were just a chore to read. 

    The TV version started well but now it's more exciting watching paint dry than sitting through two thirds of most episodes. 

    Agreed on both points. I had to make an big effort to finish the last two books…

  3. I became a fan of jazz at age 12 or 13 thanks to my parents who had albums of Coltrane, Miles, Monk, Mingus, Duke Ellington, etc.

    When I was a teenager I spent my holidays in jazz festivals in the south of France ; I was blessed to see Mingus, Art Blakey, Gerry Mulligan, Ornette Coleman, Lee Konitz, Tony Williams etc. live.

    I honestly believe there are way more  "wannabee tossers who were bullied at school who now think that they are the coolest humans on the planet, putting their own, inevitably lesser, interpretation on unfinished music that already resembled the soundtrack of a car wreck." in a Springsteen audience than in a jazz concert…
