Alizée 2010

Looks like the new album is going to miss the Christmas season. Whether or not you partake in not important, it still is a good time to sell a new album.

What about January....would you release the new single before Les Enfoires and the album after Les Enfoires? Is that a distraction?

It would be cool to do Coachella Festival 2010 in April. Yeah I know, pimping it for the third year in a row now.

I took notice Nolween Leroy is releasing a new album right now and a new single is out right now. Does a fellow artist releasing a new album cause a conflict?



Are there delays...conflicts...or is going exactly to plan?

Alizée - Whale Watching

Alright, alright, alright...

On a previous post Ruroshen added the comments:
"Have you seen the quote attributed to Jeremy that says he isn't aware of a November release for...well, anything? And that the album will be 'worth the wait'?"

LOL, Ruro doing virtual CPR on Alizee Nation. Don't even think about mouth to mouth...

So let's do this...
Yes, I am aware. By now most are aware of it so you can't be stopping by here to find that morsel of information one more time. But, but, but...what about an opinion? OK, since you asked.

I looked in my little book of comments and I was fresh out for comments on yet another release date. What do you want me to say? This is what I refer to as whale watching. Over on the right side of the boat...now on the left side...now back on the right side...as we all run back and forth across the deck of the boat trying to catch a glimpse. Similarly, new album in 2009, single in November, no September, no 3rd week of September, no October, no back to November, wait not November, 2010....

I am not angry or upset. I am a big fan of Alizée, which of course you all know. I am sure I will love it when it comes out, no doubt in my mind. I just do not do whale watching very well, some might even call it the little boy that cried wolf. I guess I didn't come running this time. It's not like it was the actual song or anything, just more words.

I want to sit back and say "you win". We don't have a clue, you did it! What you won I have no idea.
But wait...I do know what you won, you won your personal life, your family life...
Obviously a decision was made and that included the decision to not even correct all the false rumors.
But wait a second you say, if Alizée wants to be..............
STOP
Alizée is what she wants to be!
That is key to your sanity, say it again.
Alizée is what she wants to be.

At this moment anyway.

What about Jeremy and his comments? Are the comments teasing us or telling us facts or....
Maybe if I get my Institubes secret decoder ring I will be able to tell you.

I absolutely loved all the fun with the website and such but this...yeah yeah just another date.

So yeah, I saw the comments and that's what I have to say about that, and here you go, another post to have reprinted under someone Else's name.

beep, beep, beep, beep...there's a heartbeat

Alizée - Modus Operandi

Modus Operandi

The term is used in English to describe someone's habits or manner of working, the method of operating or functioning. A Latin phrase, approximately translated as "method of operating". (wikipedia)

Will a new song/album/anything be early, on time or late?
Remember the Einstein post? Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Alizée - Yahoo Music France




Yahoo Music France has now posted an article.

Google translation
Wednesday, October 28, 2009, 9:48 - The Lolita has grown. Alizée, who is preparing her 4th album, collaborating with the group electro-pop-Paris Chateau Marmont. If that name means nothing to you, know that Chateau Marmont is a well known quartet of nights Connects Capital, who has remixed artists over the hype of the moment (Ladyhawke, Midnight Juggernauts, Peter, Bjorn & John), before leaving his 1st EP entitled Solar Apex. Alizee showing teasers of the studio with her new friends have been online a few days on his new official website uneenfantdusiecle.com (press F5 to see the various teasers). After being emancipated from her godmother Mylène Farmer, Alizée had entrusted the writing of his latest album Psychédélices (2007) to his companion Jeremy Chatelain, Jean Fauque and Oxmo Puccino. Today, the singer seems to want to speak to an audience more pointed. Her new single should be unveiled later in the month of November. The album is expected in early 2010. More info on Chateau Marmont

So...do you think the Charts in France and the Yahoo Music France 'publicity' came from whomever is in charge of publicity or...from the above tweets...or they were just following her? Or let us put it this way, which of the three is probably the least likely for the reason of the articles. Yes...I think so too.

Alizée - more speculations

Why don't we start here, Chateau Marmont MySpace.

The Band


Does anyone think anything or anyone looks familiar?

Now let us take a look around their site...check out all these...charcoal type sketches that are on their MySpace.

hmmmm, that style, that look....sure looks familiar...

So, who did this artwork?

From their website, can you see it...at the bottom it says "Solar Apex EP (Artwork by House of Kids)"

'House of Kids' ??? where have we heard that before???
Oh yeah

Alizée follows 'goodbyedarkness' on Twitter which lists the name and location as "House Of Kids - Paris"

Here 'goodbydarkness' teases us with an unreferenced tease


Check out 'House Of Kids' Tumblr account
You will see lots of sketches...

So where does that leave us, well no where really, just speculations of Chateau Marmont as people of interest in the mysterious video and another artist of interest, House Of Kids, as the possible sketch artist.

Or, someone could just tell us, but what fun would that be.

Mourning Sun

Guest Post by Lady Cameron XIII

Now I remember why I see what I see in those images. I have attached the album cover for "Mourning Sun" by Fields of the Nephilim (yes, it appears my opinions are coloured by gothic rock/metal influences lol).

Anyway, compare the visage on that cover (which is that of Carl McCoy--vocalist/sole permanent member of FOTN--btw) with the two of Alizée. If I understand the cover correctly, that is supposed to be a death mask... /his death mask/.

Oh, and here's one of FOTN's latest, a live version of "Shroud/Straight Into the Light" from a show in Greece some time ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUo4duIHglA

Ghosts I - IV

Guest Post by Lady Cameron XIII

Alright. Where do I begin, mes amis ? Well, it started when I came home from work yesterday. One of our fellow Lilly Towners/frikis, RondasX, tweeted to me about Alizée's new single due out in November, and provided me links to her official website and her MySpace.

When I first looked at the two images Lili (or someone else) placed at those locations and on her Facebook, the first thought was that these were really good charcoal drawings; I realize that, of course, those may have just been Photoshop'd from two photos to look that way, but these were good nonetheless. However, upon closer examination, I began to wonder where Lili was going with these images...

In short: Alizée as we knew her is dead, buried alongside that teddy bear under the tree of dolls.

How did I come to this conclusion? As I examined the images presented before me, I couldn't help but notice that it appears as if we came upon our Lili's death bed just after she had passed on from this mortal coil. The fact the images were presented not only in black and white but as charcoal drawings only helped to spur my theory forward.

It would make sense, after all; from what I've read about Lili and her body of work, it would appear that up until now, others helped shaped her image, whether it was Mylène Farmer or anyone involved with her last album (if I am wrong here, do let me know).

From what I gathered from Lili's Spanish Wikipedia entry, though--and with a little help from Google Translate, as well--it seems that while she has a team to help shape her current work, this one is all her this time, music and lyrics.

Also: She did just turn 25. Being a quarter of a century old is quite the milestone; being a quarter of a century old /and/ accomplishing all that Alizée has accomplished... 'tis not just a milestone, mes amis. 'Tis a freakin' monolith!

Thus, these images signify, IMO, a closing of a chapter, a turning of the page (cue Bob Seger now, s'il vous plaît) on Lili's wonderful life thus far.

But I digress.

So, I took to Twitter and posted my thoughts on the images. Rondas suggested they were a bit Tim Burton-esque in nature--which I do agree with here--and in turn, the gears in my mind began to spin...

Go back a couple of years. Remember when Trent Reznor and his merry band of mercenaries began leaving clues about a new album while touring--the USB drive with a high-quality copy of "Survivalism" left in a bathroom stall in Germany or the tour T-shirt with a hidden code printed in broad daylight that eventually led to the first of a series of increasingly disturbed web pages come to mind--and all of the attention it brought before and when "Year Zero" finally came out?

I got to thinking, "If Trent can do that, why not Lili?"

Little did I know...

After going on about this through a few tweets with Rondas, I opted to take a shower before going to work on a little problem I had with my version of Linux and PulseAudio. While I was in the shower, though, another thought came to me:

"You know, I should check the source code of Alizée's official site. Something might be there."

Now, what prompted this thought was that years ago, another band I followed--The Sisters of Mercy--did something similar with their website, as seen here, taken from the Live News page of the band's site: http://www.twitpic.com/mbf9y/full. Easter eggs, as they are called. I figured if Andrew Eldritch can leave a snarky comment about potential opening acts playing on-stage with The Sisters, then why couldn't Lili do the same thing, but not as vitriolic?

So, after I finished my shower, I headed back to my laptop, pulled up Lili's official website, and right clicked to "View Page Source."

This was what I found: http://www.twitpic.com/mb2ee/full

Nothing out of the ordinary, really. All that stuff is there to make the page render nicely, is all... except for that green text my cursor pointed to. What's going on here?

I had to know for myself.

I had to open Alizée's Box.

I copy and pasted the URL into Firefox and found this interesting Flash movie of two guitarists interacting with a woman in the dark while a keyboardist plays away, all accompanied by this strange, dark, film noir-ish soundtrack.

The woman appeared to be giving direction to her two guitarists in this film, but then decided to break the fourth wall by turning to us and smiling before going back to work.

I figured there was more to this file, though, so I let it play for about five or so minutes.

Nothing.

I left the page to report my findings to Lilly Town and tweet more about it.

Then, I decided to look again...

Lo and behold, the second Flash movie appeared, this time featuring one of her guitarists and her keyboardist, who appeared to be playing along with the hook of the soundtrack.

Further, unlike the first film, the second scrolled from right to left, which, with the wisps of smoke coming into view and combined with the aforementioned soundtrack, really started tipping the WTH?! meter into the red.

I told Rondas to reload while I did the same. After reloading the vid the first time or so, I was taken back to the first...

And then, I reloaded one more time.

The third and final Flash movie came into view. It scrolled from left to right as did the first, and the creepy soundtrack was still there, and, like the other two, ran in a perpetual loop as well.

At first, Rondas thought the woman in the film was Mylène Farmer, as her hair did appear to be a bit red. I agreed for a while until I played the film once more, when I noticed that it was an extreme closeup of the first video, and that the woman was, indeed, Lili.

After that, everything exploded.

So, we have two images show our Lili in a state of post-mortem, but what of the three Flash movies? What is going on with those?

And what is with the creepy music?

And why is the website called "A Child of the Century?"

I have no idea, mes amis. I really don't. Maybe those were just teasers, those films. Maybe she wanted to tell the world, "Oui, I really am working" or something like that...

But maybe, just maybe, they, like Lili, point to something in the works.

Can you imagine Alizée going on-stage as Alizée Jacotey?

Something wicked this way comes, my friends, and we... are along for the ride. Hang on.

-Lady Cameron XIII

UPDATE

I just figured out what that soundtrack was: It's a funeral durge.

Link it back to the two "death bed" images of Alizée. Make sense now?

Alizée 101 Philosophy

So what is the significance of the three videos, the "charcoalesque' drawings?

As I explained in previous comments to a good question...we are in class. The professor has presented us with a poem or some philosophy and our homework assignment is to attempt to figure out what the author intended.

Are the 3 videos meaningless? They were hidden in a website just for fun and have no meaning? Or are they telling us something. Are they preparing us for the future? Are they some form of video quatrains?

The professor has given us an assignment. What is your analysis? Due by the end of the week.

What you see in a Rimbaud poem maybe different from what I see. You may interpret Voltaire different then myself. That is part of the beauty. And what was the author actually trying to tell us...we may never know. Or it maybe like a Nostradamus quatrain, you do not know what it means until after it happens.

Now as you all know I know nothing, but if you have ever followed 'Popismyheart' on Twitter he knows some things. Popismyheart has suggested that the videos are "teasers". Teasers as of this is what we should expect? Interesting.


So, the new question is, did Popismyheart tweet fit my comments or did I write the comments to fit around his tweet? Oh it never ends.
Oh, one more thing...charcoalesque...yeah I made up a word, hope I spelled it correctly. LadyCameronXII is where I saw it first mentioned as charcoal drawings and I just butchered it from there. Can you misspell a made up word? These philosophical problems are driving me crazy.

Papers due at the end of the week people.

A Child Of The Century

une enfant du siecle

Does this refer to the poet Louis Charles Alfred de Musset?
La Confession d'un enfant du siècle

Does this at all tie into an Edie Sedgwick concept album.

Why do I feel like I am in the middle of some Dan Brown novel?
And poor Lolita, she seems so long ago and far away.

Are our expectations starting to get managed?

Now to get it on here I grabbed my camera and actually took a video of my screen...
Then my battery died...of course

Alizée - a concept album

While we have the time let us prepare for what a concept album is...

Time to pull in Wikipedia:
"In popular music, a concept album is an album that is "unified by a theme, which can be instrumental, compositional, narrative, or lyrical".[1] Commonly, concept albums tend to incorporate preconceived musical or lyrical ideas rather than being improvised or composed in the studio, with all songs contributing to a single overall theme or unified story. This is in contrast to the practice of an artist or group releasing an album consisting of a number of unconnected (lyrically or otherwise) songs performed by the artist."

Hmm...preconceived musical or lyrical ideas. Notice it did not say music based on market surveys. A concept is more of a creative expression of an artist. Something the artist had an urge to create. Are you ready...or are you just ignoring me and the facts?

There have been many concept albums and some that have resulting in popular songs. Will it be like Serge Gainsbourgs' "Histoire de Melody Nelson" or more like the Beach Boys "Pet Sounds" or The Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". Or even the unannounced Britney concept collection based on Caligula...(that was a joke...please, just joking)

Check out the Wikipedia article. An Edie Sedgwick concept album... be prepared.

Alizée week end wrap up 10/17/2009

It looked like it was going to be a busy week but then as fast as things heated up, just as fast it cooled down.

It was reported through Psychalizee Twitter account that a fan saw Alizée on the street and that Alizée confirmed a new album for next year plus concerts.

Nothing else came from that post. I was glad to see that Alizée fandom took that news just as it was presented and did not grow rumors from it.

So there we go...one Twitter post. Every week there seems to be just one thing.
If there is a single that will be released, which there should be...eventually...I would assume the video is already made. So many people involved in a new album release. So little information...it would be extremely difficult to control the leaks...how are "they" managing that? It is impressive. For Alizée to get that across to all involved says something about her, how she has grown as a behind the scenes manager of her own career.

Low-Fi video was done a while ago, we had a few drinks on us and we were reading the chords and lyrics as we went. Blodo's kind of embarrassed by all the mistakes. I personally think the part where I forget the lyrics and go all "yayawaawaya" is worth the view.

Remember we do this with all our love and respect to the original artist and we do not intend to offend anyone.

While we wait for Alizee

Ein unorganisierter neuer dachte. Teil Weg unten auf der linken Säule schlossen wir einen neuen Fächer gemacht Video ein. Unsere Gedanken sind, dass wir einen neuen Anhänger gemacht Video von 2 Tagen bis zu den 2 Wochen rotieren lassen. Wir mochten wirklich dieses Video der Anhänger selbst, aber es kann ein Alizee Liedvideo auch sein. Etwas, um Spaß damit zu haben, während wir warten. Werden wir sie aufpicken, oder werden Sie sie vorlegen... wir wissen noch nicht.

Un nuevo pensamiento no organizado. Parte camino abajo en la columna izquierda incluimos un nuevo ventilador hecho el vídeo. Nuestros pensamientos son que alternamos a un nuevo admirador hecho el vídeo, de 2 días a 2 semanas. Realmente nos gustó este vídeo de los admiradores ellos mismos pero puede ser un vídeo de canción Alizee también. Algo para divertirse con mientras esperamos. Vamos escogerlos o va usted presentarlos... no sabemos aún.

Une nouvelle pensée non organisée. La partie la voie en bas sur la colonne gauche nous avons inclus un nouveau ventilateur fait la vidéo. Nos pensées sont que nous faisons tourner un nouveau ventilateur fait la vidéo, de 2 jours à 2 semaines. Nous avons aimé vraiment cette vidéo des ventilateurs eux-mêmes mais cela peut être une vidéo de chanson Alizee aussi. Quelque chose pour s'amuser avec pendant que nous attendons. Allons nous les choisir ou allez vous leur soumettre... nous encore ne savons pas.

Alizée and music industry questions

There are two things I would like to see us have to become more intelligent Alizée fans.

I would like to see a flow chart or some chart in regards to what company does what and what company is related to what company.
There is Jive Epic - responsible for?
Epic Records
Sony or Sony Mexico
Who reports to whom and who has what responsibilities in regards to Alizée's new album.
What is Institubes exact role. Does Wisteria Song fit in to this picture.

I maybe the only one that is interested in this. It would be cool if Jive Epic would answer that.


Second.
Releasing a song as a single, what does that really mean.
An album comes out, a song is released as a single. What does it mean for that song that the other songs on the album are not entitled to? It's own video? Radio play? An opportunity for that single to become its own profit center?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE
Working with Lefty's help via comments
I did not work in Epic Records or Sony Mexico

Alizée...and your new release

Alizée...I was thinking...
oh no, here we go again...

Without knowing much about the new album we still have a little wiggle room to speculate...and this mornings speculation is this. What will the single be that is released?

I feel comfortable saying there will be a song in Spanish, I think that is a safe bet. Oh yeah I see all your heads moving up and down, good. So, going on that assumption, will that be the single that is released?

Some thoughts thrown against the wall:

Will the single be....

An upbeat song or a ballad?
If all songs were in French I would definitely say upbeat.
But if the Spanish song is a ballad....

That leads to the bigger question
Do you release the Spanish song as 'The Single'

We know two things about the album, the subject matter is to relate to Edie Sedgwick and one song is to be in Spanish.

Out of those two items, which has your finger ready to click on the iTune purchase button.
I would just love to hear Alizée sing about Edie, or...
I would just love to hear Alizée sing a song in Spanish.

Yes, we love the Edie story and idea of a concept album is interesting we, well I anyway, kind of can not wait to hear "the sound" of the Spanish song. (more on a concept album at the bottom of the post)

So what do you release? Do you release a French song? Will we be saying yeah yeah that is nice but what about the Spanish song Alizée? Do you release the Spanish song first and does that have any implications at "home".

More on the Spanish song...
Is it just a Spanish song? or..
Is it a French song with a Spanish version? Sort of like what Shakira did with She Wolf, it came out as La Loba but has the related English version. (keeps everyone happy I think)

To release the Spanish song first or not, that is what is on my mind this morning.

Now some thoughts on the "concept album".
I am not going to post any links here but you can google "concept album" and read some articles on it. What it is all about to articles on the return of the concept album.

But...there was a concept album that Alizée talked about. She did not call it a concept album but it is described as such. I wonder...did she put together a concept album based on this format??? I do wonder now that it has crossed my mind.

OH...the name...for you to ponder too...sure...Serge Gainsbourg's

THE HISTORY OF MELODY NELSON

What if they sat down and created a similar version 'The History of Edie Sedgwick' ?
Check out The History of Melody Nelson here

In the magazine article Alizée mentioned how she and Jeremy enjoyed listening to that album...hmmmm
Anyone want to link that magazine article up, go for it.

Alizée in the tweets and paper bags

First there was the tweet...
Kind of stated as a fact, no reference or source

"The return of Alizée @ mellealizee is planned for January 2010"

followed up with a question or verification to Jive Epic

@ Jive_Epic You confirm the return of Alizée to January 2010?

OK OK, hurry, get your Alizée paper bag out, breathe, breathe slowly, again....OK settle down...

Relax, it is a question to Jive Epic and let us just look at it as that.

Now...Jive Epic may or may not reply, we can ask them hundreds of questions but they may not respond. They may choose to manage our expectations or they may let us run wild....I am sure they will do whatever they think is best for Alizée's career.

So here we are, do not go crazy. Just sit back, relax, and let us see what happens.

I love Alizée being Alizée, I know it drives most of you crazy. But I am a cat person. Does it drive you crazy that a cat will not come when called (most of the time) like a dog? The cat will come out when she is ready.

Alizée could call me on the bat phone and tell me when and I would still not publish it as a fact, she is a cat, she has a lucky star. That independent personality is just hot!

Alizée - logged on MySpace

How do you think you will hear the news about Alizée's new album? An official news release, Alizée's official web site (does anyone check that anymore?), MySpace, Twitter.

It appears to me, and I may be wrong, I often am, that Twitter has become the new news source. I feel one day I will wake up (9 hours behind Paris time) and I go into Twitter and will be the last to know the good news. Everybody do not forget to let me know...
I love to say everybody because I love to listen to Alizée say 'everybody'. Goofy I know.
Hey, are girl Alizée fans starting to out tweet the boy Alizée fans on Twitter...

So, did you notice, Alizée logged on MySpace today...hmmm...hmmm what...I don't know just hmmm

Alizée - Clearstream

Let's get this over with. It is in the news, it is not really anything for us, but Alizée's name was mentioned.

Clearstream. What is that? Politics - L'Affaire Clearstream
It involves Former French Premier Villepin and current President Nicolas Sarkozy.

According to Bloomberg:
Former French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin told a Paris court today that he didn’t know a list of names, including Nicolas Sarkozy, allegedly tied to corrupt bank accounts, was fake.
He is accused of complicity in a smear campaign against Sarkozy, to tar him ahead of their party’s decision on whom to nominate for the 2007 presidential election.
The trial is focused on the list of more than 100 business figures, politicians and celebrities supposedly holding secret accounts at Clearstream, purportedly linked to kickbacks in a 1991 frigate sale to Taiwan. The document surfaced in 2004 and was given to a judge probing the payments. It was exposed as a fake and several people, including Sarkozy, complained that it was a plot to tar them as corrupt.

So this list of names was exposed as a fake.

From Reuters India:
While investigating money laundering and financial corruption, he came into the possession of Clearstream documents that seemed to implicate some of France's biggest names, from President Nicolas Sarkozy to Alizee, a popular variety artist.
He soon realised the documents had been faked but the case set off an unprecedented court battle, in which former Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin is accused of trying to use the bogus material to stop his rival Sarkozy winning power.

Some of the names on the list registered a complaint, some have not.


From LATRIBUNE.fr:
Some named persons, as the actress Laetitia Casta or the singer Alizee, or firms, as Euro RSCG, did not lodge a complaint.

There. Alizée's name is in the news. I hope the translations and interpretations hold up. It appears that she did not lodge a complaint and would not be involved in this. But her name is mentioned and we addressed it.
