Odd facts - Alizee Nation blog
Going back into....The Alizée Zone
Just when you thought you were out... the The Alizée Zone drags you back in...
Is this really the same person? Are there Alizée 'pods' out there?
Are the side photos Alizée 2.0 or the new iAlizée that works through the new iPhone 4.
And that arm tattoo, it is located at just the same spot as Data's (from Star Trek) arm access point. Oh that's what is going on there.
The new access point for Stepford Alizée.
Now it's starting to make sense, the pieces of the puzzle are coming together. This is 'Sim One' or S1mone. You know the movie.
S1mone: Plot - A producer's film is endangered when his star walks off, so he decides to digitally create an actress to substitute for the star, becoming an overnight sensation that everyone thinks is a real person.
So that's what was going after "the split", during that 3 year hiatus when Alizée was "gone".
Oh yes and the reference in the song Lilly Town...
Un ciel si bleu
Qu’on peut y voir Lucy
Qu’on peut y voir même si l’on veut
John ou Gandhi ou l’on
S’écrit des mots doux comme
Al et Simone
Lilly dans son lit rêve à Lilly Town
You do know Al, Al Pacino starred in the movie S1mone.
It's all coming together, the classic, hiding in plain site, with the facts there is no denying it now. Compare the pre hiatus photos to more recent ones. Is that really the same person?
Reporting from the dark side of the moon, it's Alizee Nation.
Disclaimer: This is a joke. Did I really have to mention that in a disclaimer? Unfortunately, yes.

So what's in the Alizée Pipeline?
We have Muzik Elle at the end of September.
There is a remix by The Teenagers that is completed waiting for release.
There is Shanghai, China. If this appearance is to be at the Expo I believe that ends at the end of October.
And then there is a tour. A regular concert tour, a DJ tour? Only Europe?
There, I now have that mentally organized in my brain.

It's starting already. This is what really fascinates me, really "hooks" me. I know it's only me, it is an area that grabs my attention.
It's still August 22 but I thought I would see where we are at with a Twitter Search for "Muzik Elles". It is over a month away but let's see what might be going on. What do I find? Alizée, Alizée and more Alizée!
I told you. Alizée has a tendency to dominate events on Twitter! I think this is a big deal from the marketing side it shows respect and recognition but seems to go without notice. Alizée is not even headlining at this event but you would not know that by looking at Twitter Search would you? Would you? (HINT: Muzik Elles)
A 'virtual' street team has formed on Twitter... if I am in fashion...I want Alizée and this street team on my side. Hello, hello, McFly, think McFly...
This 'virtual' Twitter Search Alizée street team is not even really aware of itself yet. Once it becomes self aware... look out, look out Muzik Elles, look out Shanghai... Could you imagine if a Record Label (HINT: Sony) would utilize this WORLD WIDE WEB and not just a Regional based web theory... or even a Fashion Label. Oh gee, let's Twitter Search our Fashion Label and go to find the virtual Alizée street team has that label ALL over the web and Twitter Search.
But this type of branding promotion is not in our text books yet... As Tom Peters said "Re Imagine"
So Muzik Elles, I guess you're next, here we come...
Oh man... to be able to pull off Moi Lolita 10 years later and have fun with it...bravo....
Usually "we" seem to always have all the answers for Alizée. Frankly I did not know how she would ever be able to use Moi Lolita again and still leave the old Alizée behind. I have to say I think you're pulling it off, it's a fine line but you are doing it. You are like a mad scientist mixing so many things together coming up with a branding formula. The future is getting interesting, non?
How can you not smile when she walks out on stage! I know, I know, I'm such a school boy when it comes to Alizée. When she smiles I smile, she she giggles I giggle and this is half way around the world. She has this mysterious hold over me, I.... I... can't....break....free.....
I envision this mind control machine located in a remote spot in Corsica.....
Hi, I'm aw and I'm an Alizéeaholic...
Man!!!!! do her legs look good or what!!! opps did I say that out loud?

Driving today I had this funny thought, well at least it was funny to me. I was passing a car and "only" going the speed limit. A car was in on my bumper. As soon as I passed the car I was going around I changed lanes.
I was thinking is this person in a hurry (been there done that) or are they just a jerk and they'll flip me the bird when they go by.
They continued on with no incident, just in a hurry and late I suppose, I don't have a problem with that.
Driving in a heavily populated area, Paris for instance, I suppose all have all been flipped off at one time or another. (Not counting the times you personally administered the deed)
It had me thinking, I wonder if Alizée ever got flipped off driving in Paris. Now that would be hilarious to hear. Alizée, have you ever...

The TF1 appearance. There was no singing, no dancing... but I have to say we went crazy, as crazy as we can get online.
This appearance was close to slipping through the cracks. There was no promotion by Team Alizée, no Tumblr, no Twitter, no nothing.
Thank goodness for Alizée fans taking over the role of promotion and getting it out there for all the other fans to enjoy.
That needs repeating: Thank goodness for Alizée fans!
So why was this not promoted from within? I come up with 2 answers.
Not interested in promoting Alizée in this arena. Not "Rive Gauche" enough. There was no singing so who would be interested... We are not interested in selling more albums or having Alizée become more popular this way.
We blew it. We had no idea.
So I wonder what is going on in the next Team Alizée meeting? Are they saying: Whew that was a close one, we almost became more popular, sold more albums and started a 'tipping point' for upcoming concerts. We are exactly where we want to be.
Team, we just experienced a missed opportunity.
Did I mention this, thank goodness for Alizée fans!

Alizée on TF1
Now this is a visual Alizée clip to die for...
A natural state, not the best conditions, but... she's got the look.
Windy, hair blowing around, a casual attitude... this is like seeing a clip of an animal in the wild in its natural state... to die for...
For me this is an.... lets say... 8 out of 10 on the OMG scale. A lot of that being due the rarity of the form. Not the pre packaged clip.
It's a good day.

Remember figures don't lie.
Facebook + Myspace + Twitter + album sales = 14% of the market
With all the labels maybe marketing does get a bit confusing. Who is marketing Twitter...that's what I said, Who is marketing on Twitter...What is handling facebook.
Oh, don't forget TFI - Alizee on Television this weekend – Saturday 14 August at 20:45 (second episode) see AlizeeSouthAfrica
...and "I don't know" is handling television promotions...
Large label vs small label thought of the day.
We all know what a large label brings to the table... #1 hits, airplay...
But here is a different angle.
How many people listened.... stop, by listen I mean just that, decided to listen to, not become a fan but just listened.
How many people listened to Alizée because of the Sony label?
How many people listened to Alizée because of the Institubes label?
Which is more likely: Wow Sony is the label I should listen or Wow Institubes is the label I should listen.
A combination of labels from the music industry food tree seems to be the formula of the day.
Sony > Jive Epic > Institubes > Wisteria Song
"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
If an artist is on a label and the label does not make any "sound" for the people around to hear it... no matter how many labels are listed... is it really a promotion?

Last installment of Google translator of ALIZÉE THE NOVE
VI. OR PEOPLE SAY THE DISC
The future is a fetish easy. A sub-layer of chromium and three lasers are sufficient to assert narcotics jumps in time, grandiose accelerations. A Child of the century could have used the curriculum of his label Guardianship and try the adventure electro afford a little trip sci-fi, a series Z anticipation. But Alizee, Alizee that this has survived all the success in keeping the heart pure, would be unable to insincerity. She came to find ways to a new freedom, not in the slum, underground.
It is striking to note how this album is diverse. The journey of electric "Limelight," the cinema of author of "Grand Central", the fragility of angular "A Coeur fendre", the wide angle nostalgia of "Eden, Eden", the purity tragic "la Candida" the elegiac arpeggios of "A Girl difficile" ... Moroder crosses the field of Adjani Pull Marine flush, Jeannette flickers nearby.
It is striking to note how this album is homogeneous, which brings together producers and yet many whose words are of newly built from alternately inspired by Baudelaireee, Dos Passos or Daho.
This is a Une Enfant du siecle has been to guide the appropriateness of art by a desire not to power it. Emaille small coincidence miraculous signs of successful collaboration. And given the rigor of Alizee that girl that difficult, its sour taste, knew exactly what she wanted.
How beautiful are the moments or events to refuse their natural hearts. It is rare that an artist also installs take the risk of breaking with the linearity careerist to trace an orbit that belongs only to her. Too rare.
It is a start. A Google translation look into the what is being said.

ALIZÉE THE NOVEL - 3rd Installment (one more to go)
OR IS THIS A.
The artistic team shall meet very soon. From the beginning "Fifty-Sixty" surviving fragments of fiction and a character: a young girl we call "A." A l'ere de l'Apogee Warhol, A. leaves her native village to climb in New York. It pursues the dreams of the era, the electricity pop, arty bohemian, the promises of sleepless nights and feverish.But also the reversal of values, the revolution of morals. But also the cruel social cynicism mercantile extremism worldly.
Unfortunately. A. suffers from a disease anachronistic romanticism. She looks for love in spite of Andy, finds, loses. The passage of this young girl through a relatively short time unit is evoked from one track: it disappears, fades back, merged with Alizee, detaches it: it haunts the drive as a ghost.

ALIZÉE THE NOVEL - 2nd installment
Again, my apologies for the Google translation but the story needs to be told some how some way and I guess by me.
III OR, THE GIRL IN WOMAN, SHE KNOWS WHAT IT WANTS
The story of the girl is written so that accidents and turns of his life again. At the individual level, some movements of the historically and cultural policy. She married a deserter from Star Academy. In Las Vegas. Her name matching listings on Clearstream. She broke with her parents and art, some time, goes underground.
For an idol works, reflects, it must be smooth and available. Now Alizee is an infant. Then back, animated some idea of independence. Her third album will sour her own label, Wisteria Song, licensed from Sony. She has produced itself, surrounded by his family and artists she admires (Jeremy Chatelain, Jean Fauque Oxmo Puccinw Daniel Dare, Bertrand Burgalat ...) Psychedelics is gold record in France: The album ends the year was the fourth best-selling French-Entrange: Alizee Becomes a superstar in South America: it is (his own role) in a telenovela watched by over 75 million viewers.
IV GIRL OR REFUSES, SHADE, AND REBUILT
But it does not suffice. After three albums classic variety, Alizee wants a break. Not just a step aside. She is twenty-five years, it is time that the story bounces it becomes more strangeness.
This is a remix of the detour that crosses the path of the label Institubes, known for his play brings to the big French electronic machine, and it is a gesture of defiance that opens this new chapter. David Rubato is assigned to remix "Fifty-Sixty" has the attention of clubs and DJs. In defiance of the order, he immersed the piece in a bath of slowly revealed it to him a new trajectory, shaped divagatiion Gainsbourg. Beyond electro, more than a particular sound, is the art of skid control that captivates Alizee.
Here we enter a new field of possibilities: it will not vampirize of an aesthetic, to slip quickly into the uniform of the moment, as would a Madonna, but she can organize the meeting of two languages, two cultures developping their works and their codes each of their ratings. It is not that Alizée is tired of the variety is that she wants to finally make his own. On or risk. On or courage.
On or detour. By bringing together around her young producers and writers whose specialty is the variety but the electro pop and indie, and asking them to write to her and nothing that much out of their registers that she moved away from his. Alizee got what it wanted: a great novel, a drama.

For those of you that may not have had to the chance to read the book that came with Une Enfant Du Siecle I will attempt to share it with you here.
I will present it in installments. It will be translated through Google translator so it may not be translated entirely correctly. But then I do have someone to blame it on...Google. I think this would be a wonderful addition to Alizée Reflections, don't you? I hope you think about adding your translations and interpretations Alizée Reflections.
Here is the Preface, Prolog and first Chapter.
I remember a few snatches of music she likes. And to have known very early that I liked about this art. Then came the dance, and with it a new way to express myself, learning the body. I discovered my voice very late ..
Today more than ever, I feel I have a good star, a guardian angel that follows me and guide me in my passion, my profession. My nature is rather reserved, shy, even wild, and only the music allows me to deliver, trust me and tell me, through words, sounds and emotions.
Music marks time, it saves the era. If my records are written at the option of meeting more or less critical, always touching is that games are life, decide from the beginning or the end of things, inject new, color moments.
Some meetings taught me everything, give me the other taste of singing tales. Mine started a decade ago, continues today in this novel, and all for that I ask it is that it lasts, with you till the end of centuries.
At a time, made a mad passion historiographical, journalists of all persuasions collate all possible lists, encrypted or subjective, in order to draw the final picture of the decade proceeds, we may be permitted such comments: the ten best-selling singles in France in 2000, the first was a cover of Claude François three processes within a musical, two signed the return of old legends from another time. The only group represents has since separated.
Alizee to a bygone era number three, has crossed the tightrope in period, the line of unstable public affection, and we find the other side of the abyss, as in herself. She could, like many others, be concerned only to protect its carrier, menager its dividends, maintain the industry's notoriety. Read rails are there to follow suffragettes. This is precisely what she has chosen not to do.
II. WHERE THE GIRL TURNS TO THE IDOL
Alizee's life reads like one of those generational novel that, at long intervals, attempt to recapture the whole time and say the recent all of that time. This is the story of a young girl has transformed into an idol sixteen ambiguous by the biggest star and his French Pygmalion. "Moi ... Lolita": more than one and a half million records sold. At the age is, or is a subject, Alizee in it was established in object (of worship) and settled permanently in the eye of the multitiude. And so is the idol as the novel by Stendhal, is "a mirror that we walk along a path. Lepoque which was reflected in the set by Farmer and Boutonnat trying to pass the millennium without too much difficulty in redefining the passage of children, women and desire.
Alizee, she passes the boundaries and borders, Tokyo, Top of the Pops more than four million records be joyful in the world. Then she was eighteen years old, not yet twenty, she's sick, she wants to swim against the tide, and it does so, a little.

No matter if it is sports or entertainment, we fans are fickle and you just can not please us. Today and me being a sports fan... American Football player Bret Favre is texting that he is "done". Fans are saying it's so impersonal, he is this he is that. Just recently in the NBA Lebron James had a huge press conference and "show" to announce his plans and he was criticized for having all this drama.
We are fans, you can not win. So don't try and please us and do what you think is best. Isn't this what Alizée already does?
Combining another small bit of information, social media. It's enough to drive you crazy. MySpace is falling in popularity. I don't blame anyone for trimming down social media. Most all say the same thing in a different layout. Pick out the one's you like Alizée and we will follow you. If it becomes more like work... drop it.
Speaking of MySpace.... so there is this little code you can insert that hides the last log in date. That was added to Alizée's account about a month or two ago. Now I notice if you click on "playlist" and it takes you to a page that states that it was updated 7/21/2010 - for whatever that's worth???

This Generation 90 Moi...Lolita is so so interesting, don't you think so?
What happened here?
There is no fun, smiling and dancing at "nuevo rive gauche" ?
It's all about limited smiles, limited fun and deep thinking and limited this and limited that.... Alizée, how did you get this past the gate keepers?
J'en ai marre (En Concert) vs Moi...Lolita (Generation 90)
You keep up the spontaneous smiles and dancing and you may become even more popular: You have been warned.
Now some of the readers have been asking and I said I would not mind passing on this question. I ... I mean THEY wanted to know HOW did you get into those leggings? :)
Back to the "Chocolat" red shoes. Alizée sends more subliminal messages then anyone I know... or maybe it's just my schizophrenia kicking in.

Alizée in Israel - no translation required
Ohhh man! I want to high five Alizée
Harel Skaat & Alizée
No, Truthfully I want to live out that "Pulp Fiction" scene at Jack Rabbit Slims. Jeremy would tell me to entertain Alizée for the evening and we would go out and dance just like in the movie. Jeremy would be Marsellus, Alizée would be Mia and I would be Vincent.
And we would have to dance to Chuck Berry's "C'est la vie" or we call it "You never can tell"
It's just too appropriate...
"It was a teenage wedding, and the old folks wished them well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the madamoiselle
And now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell,
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell"
Doing the Batusi with Alizée... where do I come up with this stuff.
