The Diagnosis

So what do we have here...
The Amazon samples showed up...seemed a little early ..and as Ruroshen also thought "What I'm most surprised by is the decision to release them all so early".

Lefty shared with us the "Psych" timeline (thanks going to Ben) and perhaps it is not so out of line.

The Opendisc situation...
wt stated "maybe Opendisc will supply information".
Anonymous said "Opendisc can serve both fans and artists by acting like a fan-magazine".

This is sort of like our own episode of "House"...and with our own diagnosis.
Thanks everyone for participating

What, Alizée, you wanted to be in that episode...let's set up your very own show...hmmm...let's see...how about Baywatch Corsica...lol..no need to thank me for that one soul sister :)

fence sitting

Opendisc has put fans on the same side of the fence as the artist. It would be interesting to know if this is intentional or not.

What do I mean by that...

Artists have been on one side of the fence...I have this product...wanting to be paid for it. You can't have that for free.

With Opendisc...fans are paying a premium. over and above the cost of just owning a CD. Now if what they feel they paid a premium for is now available for a regular price or even pirated for free, fans are saying, hey you can't have that for free....or soon at regular price...

Alizée - Amazon

So....hmmm...we have the samples of all the songs. Sure I wonder the same thing as you, was that a misfire? Was that supposed to happen? Firing off all 10 audio samples at once...no matter...all 10 rounds fired at once and that is what we have.

Now what what is remaining to fire off before the release? Interviews - print, radio, video...television appearances...or a music video.

What did YOU think of that radio interview. Nice to hear Alizée's voice but...pretty uneventful. Please, does every interview have to always include old news...Mylene and Moi Lolita...oh really is that how you got your start...it makes me break out into my own "Wrath of Kahn scream". If you don't know what that is...well it is probably best if you don't know.

The one thing about Alizée is I always feel that she is trying to tell us something...something that has nothing to do with the actual interview. Something mentioned here, a casual name drop there...does anyone else feel that way or am I working on my own here?

Moving on...Opendisc had a nice opening shot of their own with the Les Collines mp3....but...what have you done for me lately. In my opinion the pressure is on Opendisc to perform unless you are happy with the extra money going towards "the box", vinyl 45's, a poster, a "book" and some polaroids for a lucky few. Opendisc is the key to that additional money...a buy in for some privileges. The album is to be released via mp3 through Opendisc...that's cool but that is also why I was surprised with the amazon samples. I have to say I am extremely anxious and curious with this Alizée - Opendisc relationship. I guess that's just me.

Oh yeah, also, it surprised me that the samples hit via amazon and not myspace...more then likely a business deal with amazon.

Now let's see, do I have this correct? The CD will be available on Amazon France March 29th for 14.95 Euros and on Amazon USA April 6th for 24.49 USD. So their you go.
14.95 Euros = 20.363395 U.S. dollars (Feb 28) grrrr...

Oh the things I do for you Alizée... la petite général
I changed the le to la to reflect a more personal feminine version and corrected the général
I noticed that post made it rounds...perhaps hit a little close to home :) hmmm...

UEDS - 30 seconds worth of thoughts

Well here goes...
First of all...a show of hands...
1) Who was surprised UEDS showing up on Amazon already?
2) Who thought something would show up on Opendisc before it showed on Amazon?
pretty many hands so far...
3) Who figured this is how it was going down...one hand...you there in the back, about 5'2" with the fringe hair cut, glasses and the fake nose and moustache....Alizée! ...you can't vote here...Lola get her under control..break out the polaroid...vogue..strike a pose....

OK, now that we have her occupied...

My tendencies are to gravitate towards the livelier tunes....so all the faster beats is where I head. Writing this while tweeting, Lefty reminded me that this is a concept album and we need to listen to it in order...he is correct...so before we (see how I included you all in this) get too carried away we will need to wait. Now that being said the song that ends up with my most plays on my Itune count...anyone? It's Hey Amigo...yeah it's true. Surprises me too.

One song that intrigues me is Une Fille Difficle. It goes along and sounds like it will take off but goes down...has my interest.

Opps, gotta go...Lola ran out of film...here she comes and you know she just has to know what we are talking about, who we are texting and tweeting....:)

Metamorphosis of Alizée

Metamorphosis of Alizée...I like that. Well stated





The dress fashionista. Trendy its implementation is the pure reflection of the sound of the album: it was surrounded by the creme of the French pop scene (Chateau Marmont, Rob, the keyboard Phoenix, Tahiti Boy epuivalent ...), the music hype Balenciaga epaulettes.

Skin change succeeded

Alizée - France Bleu - Radio Interview

There is a radio interview coming up this Saturday on France Bleu.
You can find France Bleu here
There is a direct link .that you may listen on line.

Would be nice to verify if the online link will carry the interview. You never know.

The tough part of a live interview is that Google Translate is of no use...and we can not slow it down...
What if you recorded it, put it through speech recognition program, then put it through a translate program...now that's just crazy talk!

You never know where help will come from...do we?
Moving on...

Our friend Ninja_J_Rabbit has been hopping around on Twitter...the thing about a Ninja is they leave no tracks and you don't know who they are :)...
Ninja_J_Rabbit has been good to us...a bit of a mystery wrapped in a riddle but that's the fun of it. Last night we were left with the quote: "This reminds me of a quote I read “Mystery is at the heart of creativity. That, and surprise.”"

By Julia Cameron who wrote The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity

I have many thoughts and theories on our friend, but after that last quote...figuring things out is not always the answer. If a mysterious stranger leads you to a better place...then lead on.

Follow the Ninja Rabbit.

Alizée le petit generale

Alizée, le petit generale, has put together a major internet strategy and it keeps coming! This is bigger, better and more well conceived then we could have ever hoped for.

I have been thinking and thinking and thinking in regards to AlizeeSouthAfrica's post Who is Pascal Teixeira? Is this the architect hired by le petit generale?

Lets take a look...

From magicrpm.com there is an article about the group Phoenix and their Grammy award. A line from the article: "I especially feel that Phoenix deserves his success, four of them took all the risks and all the right decisions", we trusted Pascal Teixeira, the DA group"

Trusted Pascal for what you ask. Another article from magicrpm.com an interview with Pascal Teixeira ...

Now,
Everyone in the group has at least one iPhone and a laptop, an almost permanent access mails during the day, the same for video chat, etc.. The group is very involved in everything that is done in web technology, they know what they want because they themselves are the primary users.


After the song 1901 was released:
The feedback was crazy: the most downloaded song / Blogger in the world in February. After two years in the studio without external advice, it's been a very foolish. That's why we gave the components to remix the song in "Thank You". It's like a relationship, you get more and more you give, the more you'll try to surprise the other.

There is the Phoenix Diary, is that what we now see with the Alizée tumbler blog?

And what about that Phoenix Diary...
The group follows directly and post comments. Posts - Like most of our ads - are in English for the sake of efficiency

So far it's all looking pretty familiar.

But now is the fun part....I hope you all made it this far.

Tell me about this famous section Bank of France found on the site. The Bank of France, was the personal access to the group during the making of the album. It put listening first finished pieces for close friends, giving each his personal password, exchange of sensitive files, this sort of thing. There was always a pleasure to connect and retrieve the new version of any song.

Now that the album was released, new passwords have been enabled to provide access to unpublished demos, goodies, a lot of surprises ... The first password hidden in the tags of MP3 is CONCORDE 1901. Il mIt leads to the demo recording of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. Les autres sont à découvrir. The others are discovering.

So what do you think? Are there hidden passwords? Where would you use this password, opendisc?
Now keep in mind, most password protected sites give you three tries and then deactivate your link. So please do not blame that on Alizee Nation...BUT...

This is where we have to get together and become The Borg collective and become one mind and share ideas and thoughts to see if we are being challenged with anything. Open disc is the only place I can see where a password would go (remember the 3 chances)

Perhaps a tag from the new tumbler blog?
Is it time for a new egg hunt? I thought I would share my thoughts on this so we could have some fun.
Of course I could be reading more into this then there is...am I Pascal?????

And remember when it comes to Alizée...resistance is futile!

Alizée - launch party

Alizée...a launch party, or CD release party...an actual "brick and mortar" event! Well! really! Not something happening somewhere, not a release of something that did happen, not a well placed article about a recent interview. A real upcoming event...that we are aware of in advance. Wow...cool.

Alizée, except for Les Enfoires, I was getting concerned that you were going to be the newest member of Gorrilaz. Of course you would have been my favorite hologram...but this is much better. No, no...don't even think about it!

Les Collines, Limelight and Alizée

With all this going on there have been some comments that I want to address

wt: Radio version of LImelight, came off the Music Fascination site. I really can't say there have been any leaks. Appears to be well managed relesase. Of course what happens to the releases after wards is another story.

Guido / Fenris of AF Thanks for stopping by and you are right, no run of the mill stuff here.

Lefty and anon: I like both also, but then again after two and half years I would love Alizée humming Mary had a little lamb.

It sure is fun having new music!
And business woman Alizée...now that's hot.
Let that make the rounds in Paris :)

Alizée Limelight...radio version

Some chatter about the track listing of 5:19 and the version we have be teased with around 3:38. What can we say, Alizée always has to get her tease in on us...and then we at times read more into it...can we settle for "just" the radio version....never :)



1. Eden, Eden (4:22)
2. Grand Central (3:24)
3. Limelight (5:19)
4. La Candida (2:15)
5. Les Collines (Never Leave You) (3:44)
6. 14 Décembre (3:18 )
7. A Cœur fendre (3:07)
8. Factory Girl (4:11)
9. Une Fille difficile (3:41)
10. Mes Fantômes (3:18 )

I enjoyed the very short comment on Music Facination
Besides just repeating information they actually had an opinion:
"“Limelight” is a down tempo electro pop song that features deceptively simple loops that enhance the songs dark mood. I am really looking forward to hearing the full album."

However so brief it was still enoyed.

Alizée, give us the tools part II

There was a post back in August 2009 that became popular, almost a Twitter rallying cry at the time. it was called 'Alizee, give us the tools'

Wow, was that 6 months ago. I thought of re-posting but...you can click on it and check it out. @Ruroshen mentioned the idea again to me... I have been entirely impressed with the online effort this week that I am not sure that you need or require our help. This is a whole different Alizée then when that post went up. You appear to have the business side of the online promotion set up and in gear.

But, Alizée...for your fans, the forums, the websites, the blogs, the many that you do not have personal contact with...it's not so much about the business of it all....we want to join in THE PARTY, to CELEBRATE to join in the FUN with YOU!

Give us the tools part II .... to party and celebrate with you....give us 'official' banners to wave, boxes to post, and links to share. Your official banners will be waving from websites all over the globe...

Celebrate good times come on....its a celebration - Don't make me break out my Kool and Gang impressions - you don't want that soul sister.

So...Alizée, excusez-moi de vous déranger...mais j'ai un probleme...would you be able to give us the tools to party with you? :)

Celebration! - How did this get here? See what I mean.

Alizée, a song in English

What fun! What was that we just experienced...2 years of information in one week. Alizée you had my head spinning. You had information coming from 10 different directions, some from true blue connections, some from out of the blue. My twitter of interest list just could not keep up, I couldn't keep up...and I have a life you know...well, kind of...OK...a pseudo life...outside of the Nation, it was still so much I couldn't keep up.

So in honor of the start of the Winter Olympics we will give you an Olympic style rating: A 10 on content and a 10 on style...perfect. The way you distributed the information to us was just freaking awesome!

Now, Alizée, we have to talk. A song in English? WHAT? Where did that come from. Oh yeah...doing a song in Spanish...yada yada yada, and out of nowhere we have a song in English....to what purpose? :) Shall we go crazy speculating? I can't believe you didn't tell me! Alizée...it's me...Alizee Nation...you know, you can tell me anything soul sister. You have my email...do you need my number...:)

Alizée Oasis

Alizée Oasis...

You have all watched that scene. The guy was lost in the desert for long time, no food, no water...then he comes across an Oasis and he wants to over indulge and everyone at the Oasis has to stop him, no, no, easy does it... just a little at a time.

That is how I feel with this onslaught of information...whoa, whoa...easy boy..back away from the computer...

All those years of roaming the desert, looking for information, surviving on fan remixes....this, now, is almost too much to take...system and sensory overload. What a new and wonderful problem to have.

Limelight

A small snipit of Alizée's new song Limelight just hit Opendisc!!!!!
This is exciting.....NEW MUSIC BY ALIZEE

The timing with our Opendisc discussions could not have been better. It is almost as Alizée and I planned it ;)...lol
No, really, as they say...even a blind squirrel finds and acorn once in a while.

Is it just me or do we talk more about the Alizée business side more...it's like she has a little business Coco Chanel in her. Cool.

You can find the Opendisc Limelight sample on YouTube already. Yes really :/ Now this poses a new question....are you happy that you paid extra for Opendisc and now it's just out there for everyone?

Think about that as you go see the YouTube version...because you know you are all going to do it. What will the forums do? Allow or Ban and it's already showed up in some. I don't know the answer but we just went a little further down the rabbit hole.

Alizee Nation

Club Alizée?

The 'Opendisc' information.

My guess, and I could be wrong, is that the Opendisc technology is the key to the pre order.

As far as a private club...I really do not see it that way. It is a product that is available to anyone, you just have to pay for it as with any product. It is not private, at this point in time the only stipulation is that it is available for a limited time. Amazon.com is not a private club because they will not share without paying. Satellite TV is not a private club because they will not allow you to have the signal without paying. Opendisc is not a private club. They have a product and service that is available for a fee. The limited time is like any sale...when the sale is over...it's over. If a manufacturer decides to only have a limited amount, they are allowed to do that.

Now, the economics of it, you could say you think it is too expensive. As some would say a Mercedes is too expensive and others may say it is a great value. It depends on your point of view, not a right or wrong. The great thing about a free market economy is that if it is not wanted or needed or the price is too high....no one will buy it. That appears to not be the case here.

The question I have is how long can Opendisc remain viable. Does it have a shelf life? Could it be a subscription news service for specific purposes? Or is it really event related with a shelf life? As with the buzz of a release of a new album? Or can it be tied to advanced information for a specific person for years? A once and done purchase or a yearly subscription....the future of Opendisc will be very interesting to say the least.

Making the decision on Opendisc and then setting a price...THAT my friends...are the meetings I would have loved to sit in on. That had to be some very interesting discussions. All of a sudden you are out of the music and into economics. That is when you feel that sensation in the pit of your stomach. Making these discussions takes some....well...huevos.

Alizée - The pre order boxed set



I think the pre order boxed set is a great idea. I know it's expensive but I feel it fills a need. Artist's need to capture this audience. This audience wants to be captured. Some will wait for the standard CD and then others will illegally download the songs. The Opendisc option could be a real difference maker, it is an option that can only be bought! Opendisc will be interesting to follow.

Take a look at some other examples out there. If you own an American Express card you have the opportunity to buy tickets before they are available to the general public. It's just business my friends.

Alizee Nation

We are delighted to welcome you to Alizée's Opendisc.

Sony and Opendisc form a partnership


Add it to the Twitter of Interest list!


FAQ

My interpretation of this is...the so called large format CD would be referring to an Opendisc CD. This in turn is what gives you access to additional information and advanced online updates.
So it's not just about getting 45's, a box and a poster. You are getting additional technology. A standard music CD will not have this extra.

The next question of course is ... the extra content. How much extra content will it be, how often and how long will it continue. In the past there were times when information slowed, the official website was not updated for a long periods. That may have been due to a break in activity by Alizée, privacy issues...etc... But now...we are paying for information. Should be interesting.

Inside Alizée's head

Yeah I know...everyone else is going picture crazy, she is so pretty, she is an angel, she could never do anything wrong...and then there is me and I am trying to get inside Alizée's head. Hey, she started it! Trying to get inside my head. Look at those last 3 pictures...

...ears covered, shaved head, 45 rpm as a hat....
You're messing with my mind Alizée...I want to be across the poker table from you, of course I would beat you...ohhhhhhh that made your blood pressure jump 10 points...LOL...what, you did not think that I noticed that you were a competitor.

So if you can excuse us right now Alizée we are talking about you...
What to expect next.

I have to assume the official website is tied up until Feb 23 for pre orders. Right?
New articles could come out of no where, no predicting that, but that could happen. Pre order ends about a month before the official release of the album, so sometime in the next 7 weeks and probably sooner then later a single should be released. Would it be right after the pre order ends? That would be a likely guess.

What about something from Institubes, Jive Epic even Sony. Now that's hard to say, someone has to come out with something but who has that obligation?

So what about something from Alizée directly, there is always twitter. We may want to go on a MySpace watch. It was played with on Feb 3rd and 4th. It is an "official" site that is not tied up with the pre order...new album pic loaded, information updated, just sitting there waiting for the new single...or...a teaser?

What about YouTube? Now that's a tough one. Do you go all in like Shakira did? I noticed I can not view the videos in "my" country. I would be hesitant to use it for current music but...song teasers, the "making of" some of the songs, the behind the scenes of the making of a video (positive thinking).
But if you make a video you have to show it somewhere and then....it shows up somewhere else.

last sign on ...1 year ago

So what we figured out...is....nothing! Alizée!!! poker face!

Institubes...Who are those guys...

video
Institubes...Who are those guys...I say guys because it is kind of like a boys club...and now there is Alizée!

There is a small self description on their website: "At first, it was a cute little club between card-carrying friends. Our little hut in the trees, deep in the woods, where the noise bothered no one."

It was their own little "Our Gang", the Little Rascals of Paris. From the old black and white series from the 1930's!

You see it... If Alfalfa is Para One then Spanky is...well...I think you get the picture...and there is Alizée right in the middle of them. They just need a studio dog with a circle around one eye.

Just having a little fun with "the gang"..."the little rascals"...
Institubes, more then any other label, is defined by who they are more then what they are and what they do...the label has a personality. .

I do not know what is more interesting...that Institubes worked with Alizée or Alizée worked with Institubes. I am so looking forward to this "creation"...so much more then the standard homogenized, pasteurized product on the shelf. There is nothing wrong with that, but...going for more, being creative, following your heart...that's a whole different level. You have to admire that.

The last paragraph of Institubes description says it all: "Anyway. We'll try and entertain." - That's it, that's all I ask. Be creative and try to entertain.

Henry David Thoreau wrote in 'Walden', "If a man loses pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured, or far away."



(Who are those guys...1969 - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid)
(Thoreau was an early influence on me..'Civil Disobedience' - ahh of course you say, but until today I never gave thought that Thoreau is of French origin)

Geometric Alizée

Geometric Alizée



Does it mean anything...the design...anything to do with Sacred Geometry?
Perhaps copying the design of the sunflower and incorporating the Fibonacci Sequence


Maybe it is just decorating with geometrics...


Or is it a spirograph gone wild!



Fun or a message....

Alizée, Vinyl and Ears

wt had asked in a previous post:
"Why is Alizee covering her ears with her hands? Or is that just another clue to the story? And why include "vinyls" in the preorder special? I got rid of my record player 20 years ago. Maybe the included book will explain it all."

Lets start with the vinyl...Madonna said it best in a word "Vogue". The prevailing fashion, practice, or style. It is the latest trend. Yesterday at a coffee shop they were playing vinyl LP's! I inquired on why they were doing this....or was it because she was attractive....no matter...it's the latest thing they told me. They all have some vinyl and they bring them in and play them in the coffee shop. (side note: yes I did share the news of Alizée and her latest boxed set)

Here is a very good Time Magazine article on the subject. The title is "Vinyl Gets Its Groove Back".

Now the next question is....do you play them? It's a collectors set. Do you even open it?
Your Barbies, Ken's, G.I. Joe's and yes....dare I say it..you Star War figures (smh) are worth more if they were never opened.

So, ...are you going to open yours???? Inquiring minds want to know.

So, collectors boxed set, vinyl...it's all the rage.

Now on to your first question. ""Why is Alizee covering her ears with her hands?"
Well that goes back to my post Apple and Mac tattoo's - iAlizée? no? where I made a comment about her showing too much ear in some of her pics...so....she decided to cover them up for fun on the album cover...
"pause"......
"pause"........
"pause"..........
what? you don't think that's it? really?
