Wow, that is all it takes. It is amazing what little action on Alizee's part picks up interest for her. Just from my end, the hits from France picked up, then...the hits from Mexico went crazy.
There is an article from El Siglode Torreon. I love the Google translation that refers to Alizee..."freaked all the youth"
It is just too fun...
The haircut, I love it, but then again I never met an Alizee haircut I did not like.
And what about the haircut.

The fans in Mexico are so enthusiastic! I am so envious.
I am so glad you all support Alizee so well.
You are not doing bad hitting my little blog either!
Keep up the good work.
Hang in there with the poor quality...it will be worth it!!!! Or just jump to 2:40
Alizee, Alizee, Alizee
In a study "Preferred women of the men"
It is an interesting article, bablefish it to read it. You can download the PDF also.
French men over all say, top 10 for naive, fragile, exhibitionist, want to be on a desert island with and want her mobile number.
Disquedrop linked this is in a previous comment.
I did not want this to go unposted.
We can see the multiple escorts/body guards. Good for her. But...is there a personal escort?
Good to see you again Alizee!

It's early but there is this little tid bit...
On the red carpet, Alizee was the most protected with 15 escorts that accompanied her during her route.
Joaquin Phoenix turned 34 yesterday.
Movies include: 'Walk the Line', 'Gladiator', 'Signs'...
Announced he is finished with films, retiring from movies.
You may or may not care or even like him.
But I am sure he had fans...maybe even a fan club...and now...
Alizee fans can relate.
They are allowed to do what they want to do.
Even if we think it's a mistake!
An interesting background read off Wikipedia if you have a minute.
I wonder if fans that liked him will now not like him, or maybe they will just miss him and wish him well?

Today the term "apologist" is colloquially applied in a general manner to include groups and individuals systematically promoting causes, justifying orthodoxies, or denying certain events, even of crimes. Apologists have been characterized as being deceptive, or "whitewashing" their cause, primarily through omission of negative facts (selective perception) and exaggeration of positive ones, techniques of classical rhetoric.
Who better then me? Nobody!
Maybe we will get a glimpse of Alizee this week in Mexico. Let's keep a good thought.
Alizee Interview. Part 4 of 4.
There are some interesting subtitles missing...see what you think.
UPDATE - UPDATE
I was double checking the link to the blog that had the pictures of the blog writer and Alizee...those pictures have been removed.
They were posted July 26, 2008. They were nice pictures, I do not know why they would be removed from the post. They were posted for 3 months and now they are gone from that blog.
and the beat goes on...

Jamais Plus - Alizee
This song seems to have stayed under the radar.
Your Choice: Moscow, Mexico or Animated
I admit I do miss choreography
In Mexico the big screens were up and running...was it being recorded?
You would think so, and if so...

The Alizee America Podcast is a fun, enjoyable English speaking podcast.
I had the opportunity to listen to them again this week and they are very entertaining. When each podcast was first released, there maybe a tendency to look for the latest breaking news...and then we move on. I fell in that category. Well it's time to re-listen for the entertainment value. I enjoyed it all much more the second time around. Ciara, Snatcher42...good job.
The interview with Ruroshen, enjoyable, and it just blew right by me the first time around. Fans do not have to be hysterical idiots, then can be intelligent and well spoken. It takes a certain amount of talent to do a podcast. Well everybody...and don't you just love listening to Alizee shouts 'everybody' in her French accent...listen to them again for the entertainment value and become a subscriber.
By the way I do not know anyone that creates these podcast...my apologies for not having a list of all the people involved.
There, that should get you started, or just go to the podcast page.
You may subscribe via Itunes or go to this RSS link and click on "subscribe now" and the button goes on your toolbar!
Oh, and Alizee, check out the Alizee America Podcast link above...you can anonymously call in your 'tres bon'...along with the rest of us.
And now Ciara, episode 11...

"and the man created the woman" - The Stepford Wives
If we could only get Alizee to do what we wanted...the Stepford Alizee
The local men's club, we call them forums.
The woman are former CEO's, executives, judges...why not an artist/entertainer.
If you could change something about Alizee by pushing a button, would you?
A concert every week, always wearing the J'en ai Marre outfit, perform in my home town...
Is Alizee aware of the Stepford Fans?
from a translation on Alizee America
Aren't you a fan of "Desperate Housewives" since there are many references to the series: Wisteria Song, Wisteria Studio and in the words of "Lilly Town" we find Bree Van de Kamp?
I am a big fan of the series and I would like to have a clip that resembles it! Its also the picture of a clip with Nicole Kidman:"And the man created the woman".
As in the movie, Alizee is aware of the Stepford Fans/Husbands, the game is afoot.

Look at Umeesh from Alizee India
It's a video of his website.
There are blogs, forums and websites. This is a very well done website.
It's actually better to go to the website then watch the video but it was innovative.
Be warned it's 9 minutes long. Would have preferred all Alizee music for 9 minutes but that's me. Interesting. I really like the idea from a promotional aspect. hmmm

In some previous posts we alluded to some non Alizee news and here are some follow ups.
Rickrolled made it's way through here. Well new news on Rick Astley and Rickrolling from NME.
"Rick Astley has been nominated as potentially the Best Act Ever as the online 'Rickrolling' phenomenon gains pace.
The '80s pop idol's 1987 Number One hit 'Never Gonna Give You Up' has been enjoying a new wave of popularity as mischievous fans have been tricking YouTube users into watching the video by posting fake tags and links."
You never know what will become popular. What if the original Rickrollers gave up?
Yelle is now doing a North American tour as most know. We have mentioned Yelle several times here. Taking a peek I noticed she is playing many smaller venues. Not a bad idea. Again from NME Yelle is asking fans to wear masks and to possibly be in a documentary that is being filmed. That's different.

That's it, some quick side notes

At the web site eventful you can ask for a performer in your town.
Demand Alizee where you live.
An Alizee fan site in Chile.
Then there is
Another India site jumps on board and tries their hand.
Welcome to the A-Team.
Well that's two countries now that start with a C.
Can anybody think of another we should have, anybody, anybody, eh...

December 2007 Alizee - Star Acamdemy
A couple of notes on this video. First, the guys singing. Having guys sing Moi Lolita breaks the ice so that anyone can sing this song, even Alizee at say 27. It has always been associated with a younger girl, but now anyone can sing it. Second, always has to get in that Madonna reference doesn't she. Hey mister DJ...
Plus it is worth watching for the 5 seconds of her strutting down the runway.

In case you do not read the comments I am adding the comment back into the main post
Reader wik was all over this one! Then threw in a website for free.
Let's see, what do we have for the winner...
not just a person, but the t-shirt shows admiration for a group of top designers- Stella McCartney, Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, and John Galliano.
The Unconditional Fan.
I do not need Alizee to do anything in exchange for being a fan.
She needs to do this, she needs to do that, frankly it does not bother me.
If she quits, I am still a fan. I enjoy her personality as is.
Some of you do not, I understand. Some of you need her to conduct herself in a manner, it is OK. I do not, you may.
Just a difference between a conditional and an unconditional fan.
Do you recall Alizee after the situation in Mexico? How upset and concerned she was. Can you imagine how she feels now? Do you truly think she is non caring? Let's pile on just like some did in Mexico.
Yes, things could have been done differently. Things have not worked out as well as we all would like to see. Do you need better management to remain a fan? It's OK if you do.
Communication. Alizee has had very limited contact with the public in the past, very limited contact in the present, and will probably have very limited contact in the future. Can you live with that?
We all want more. We can't get enough of Alizee. Some artist can give more, some less. Do you have a minimum requirement to be a fan?
There is some good news. With the high cost of gas it is good to note that the Alizee Bandwagon is getting much better gas mileage with the recent loss of dead weight.

Hello darkness my old friend.
Alizee - Sound of Silence
It is difficult to impart Grace when we automatically demand justice. Real Grace forgives the unforgivable.
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turn my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never shared
No one dared
Disturb the sound of silence
"Fools," said I, "you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sound of silence
It was beautiful watching the sun come up over Ajaccio this morning, did you see it?

It appears that I need to start a support group for frustrated Alizee fans.
Make yourself comfortable on my couch.
Now tell me what is the problem as you see it?
'Alizee does not do what I want her to do. She disappears for months at a time. She makes decisions I feel are wrong and I want her to be bigger then she is or wants to be.'
I see, and all this I want and I feel are for HER own good?
Expecting people the act this way or that way for you can only lead to disappointment.
Times up for the day.
I am not a real doctor I only play one on this blog.
It is frustrating on those of us that can't get enough of Alizee. I do understand, I am the one who wrote the post about pushing a rope.
In American baseball there is a player Manny Ramirez (currently with the Los Angeles Dodgers). Manny does not always conduct himself in a way we would consider normal or average for a baseball player. Manny is...an above average player, he too is a unique. When Manny does what he does it is known as "Manny being Manny".
Possibly the same could be said for European football star Zindane (of head butt fame).
Did you feel the ripple in the force today? No, not the economic melt down of the world, something more important. The ripple in the Alizee force. The announced (now be careful here, we lived through announcements before) postponement of the concert at Le Grand Rex until March. Wow, on one hand and yet not surprising on the other. It is Alizee being Alizee, she is a unique.
I think it is fair to say that Alizee is a bit of a recluse due to the fame and celebrity. Wikipedia has a long list of Famous Recluses. Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Sly Stone, Wachowski brothers to name some interesting ones. Read the one regarding Kraftwerk (please no). I think we can add Alizee to that list. That is not a bad thing, it just is.
Now, does any of this have anything to do with the concert, I doubt it. There is the award presentation mentioned, maybe the record company switch, could be the influence of many factors. But, does the lack of information about it have to do with the above, I think so.
Just Alizee being Alizee. Easy for me to say, I did not loose money on airline tickets. But don't you hope that is all it is for Alizee!
A lot of you think there have been some bad decisions lately. Wow, have I made my share of bad decisions. In the mean while keep in mind they may be the best moves for Alizee the person.

Alizee interview from 2-22-2002. This is part one of a four part series.
Discusses her start. Having songs in the number 1 and 3 spot. Moi...Lolita selling over 2,000,000 copies. Covers the first of the Alizee vanishings! This first one went for a year and little did we know would set the pattern for future vanishings. You have to appreciate her maturity in this early interview.
Released on September 30, 2007*
Can't Speak French
Official video Released March 14 2008*
Video shot January 2008*
I Kissed a Girl
Single released May 6 2008*
It's all good.
Referring to the video trend
Thank you for starting the trend Alizee. It was a tough job but someone had to analyze these videos and pictures.
According to Billboard the dates for Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival have been confirmed for April 17-19, 2009.
Per Billboard: "Coachella remains the premier American festival event of the year for alternative music lovers. The event has become renowned for reuniting or featuring cult favorite bands that hadn't played in the United States in years, such as Portishead, Rage Against The Machine, Daft Punk and Kraftwerk."
Yelle played in 2008.
2009 line up to be determined early 2009
Enough with the hints...Alizee...Jeremy...you could both play there.
Or you could pack up the family and enjoy it as a vacation incognito.
Alizee you have the ability to shape shift into different looks and could absolutely pull that off, except for...Tinkerbell following you around, may have to keep Tink covered. Just can not sneak off to the beach in BIG sunglasses can you.
But what do I, an insignificant rouge Alizee blog, know. Perhaps RCA/Sony/Jive - WHATEVER - contractually does not allow it. I do not care if Alizee wants to stay home 10 out of 12 months for family considerations, still promote her accordingly. This blog would be written differently if Alizee was on the road 10 out of 12 months, but she is not so it is written accordingly. Diamonds are more valuable because they are rare. Granite is not as valuable but can become a fad, trendy or in style. When that fad is over...Yes it would be easy to exploit Alizee by having her be out there, but you do not. So work with what you got record companies. Rouge blogs, websites and forums just can not have more of an impact then the record company. I realize the record companies must be saying it can not be done like this, stop seeing what you believe and become visionaries.
Opppps, insignificant rouge blogger went off a little.
Did I mention the Coachella Fest set the dates for 2009.

A quick look at a few Alizee fan sites. In no particular order.
It was just for fun. I picked Le nid d'Alizee for France, looked most likely to me.
Please enjoy the information. Some I could not find, Peru for instance. I know I was there but just could not find it. I will gladly edit or add to this if anyone should request it. It would be my pleasure. Or possibly this may inspire someone to start one in their county, be the first to have a web address with your country's name along with Alizee's name.
Friday, October 3, 2008
A couple of quick hits of various subjects:
Alizee's calculator watch. Covered this in a previous post. It's the Casio Gold DBC610-GA. A few exclusive ones made, Alizee has one. So unusual a female wearing a calculator watch, on stage and to fashion show no less. Well I caught another female wearing the exact same version, Erin Ryder on the American television show "Destination Truth". I do not have a picture of her wearing it yet. Is there a trend starting here? Would be cool if Alizee started a trend.
By the way a cool thread at Alizee forum: The fashion of Alizee. There are some great contributions in that thread. I will have to re-read that thread again.
What about those shoes Alizee is wearing in the main pic I currently have posted? Does anyone know about them?
Those "Alizee Feet" searches keep coming up. It appears that Alizee could cash in just selling pictures of her feet. I have to admit that one caught me by surprise.
Looking at the visitor map on the left. Red dots starting to show up in South America, very cool.
Steady group in Canada, Turkey, India to mention a few. UK appears to be getting on a little more often.
It appears the streaming video cam from Ajaccio is down. I miss it, I enjoy watching dawn arriving over the Mediterranean. I will start checking it out. I hope it is just a technical difficulty. Another streaming video favorite of mine is of Mykonos, check it out.
There is one in Calvi Corsica I may need to use.
The population of Ajaccio is listed as 52,880

Since we just covered a confusing inaccurate news article let's jump right back in with these songs. So what do we have here...
First we have Luna Freestyle, Vol. 2: Hartbeat
6. Broken Hearts - Alizee
13. Fantasy Love - Alizee
14. Fantasy Love (Classic Mix) - Alizee
I did not include every track, just the one's that list Alizee.
The release date for this album is June 21. 1996. That would make Alizee not yet 12.
Then there is this:
Freestyle's Lost Gems Vol. 7
The release date is 2008 for this one and one track is:
8. Tears of Love - Alizee
Amazon.com list them
Luna Freestyle vol. 2
That so called album cover, is that a young picture of Alizee in the bottom right?
Tears of Love
Last.fm shows Fantasy Love as Alizee...???
or this youtube vid
Is this another Alizee or our Alizee?
Rip off, misleading or true, help set the record straight.
Brief and to the point...
The Swiss regional weekly newspaper, Le Regional, released an article regarding a new album coming up for Alizee.
Picture and all.
They got it wrong! I was holding out waiting for their published retraction and here it is. It is in the brown box, bottom right side.
They mixed up names and published it! They were referring to Alize Oswald.
There you go...
