Jumping in the Alizée "wayback" machine
Has it been 3 years since we heard "J'ai pas vingt ans", and that was the Funkadelic version.
When was the last time Alizée sang the original version in public?
What? You thought you were going to get one of my Jeopardy post? I can't always make it that easy can I? Run with it... forum talk for the answer, finish the post in another blog... it's OK with me. Or... sit and wonder :)
So, Alain Chamfort wanted to surround himself with stars... well that's who I would pick to surround myself with too... Alizée, Jenifer...
Alizee went to a Jenifer concert in the last two weeks, that was cool.
Let's crank that wayback machine back even further... 7 years ago, May 27, 2004...
Alizée doing a prank phone call on Jenifer
I guess it's time to get back to the future...
hmmm, I wonder when was the last time old school JPVA was performed in public...

WOW - old school J'en ai marre and J'ai pas vingt ans
I'm really not sure I thought I would see that again.
I don't care if the gentleman is signing along, I would have been too!

sometimes I think I am dealing with SIMONE...
Al Pacino and S1m0ne...
Al and Simone? We've heard that phrase somewhere? But where...
Y a même
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
(SIMONE is an instant watch on netflix FYI)
and thanks to Alizee Reflections again

Did you see it?
Could you believe it, I nearly fell off my chair.
Alizée asked us a question!!!!
It was not just a post... the store is closing, the store is open, happy holidays.... it was a question to us!!!!
When was the last time that happened?
Note that it happened on Facebook. Two days ago I gave a heads up regarding that, "Alizée prefers Facebook" see post
I hope you took advantage of that hint because it's hard to coordinate these efforts... :) just joking.
"Recorded a duet with Alain Chamfort today :-) but what title? ..."
knock knock knock Alizée, knock knock knock Alizée, knock knock knock Alizée... she answered with a question. :)

I was trying to reorganize links, do a little house keeping and it got me to thinking...
The website, the store, the blog... it's all there and in place to be utilized when needed.
During some of these long stretches it really comes down to Twitter and Facebook. Or is that Twitter vs Facebook?
Alizée favors Facebook. It's more private, more of a posting, postings supported by pictures that can be seen. She can also enjoy the fun of posting with friends without being thrown out in public. It serves Alizée well.
Twitter is more conversational driven. Your tweet can be reposted, it is more of a conversation, like a public instant messenger. You can link to a pic but it's not "showing" with your tweet.
It's easy to see the conversation in Twitter, if you follow them it's right there in your timeline. Facebook, not so easy. There might have been a conversation under some a post that you may not see.
Twitter allows us to tweet to @mellealizee, it could be about anything. Facebook has to be a comment under a post, so it generally is regarding the post.
So chatter favors Twitter. Great for fans.
A pic and a post serves well under Facebook. Works for Alizée, organizations that don't want a conversation but do want to post information and for the folks that like to continually post pics of themselves.
One of the keys to Alizée is looking for the subtle changes she allows us to see via Facebook... that is our "manna" it allows us to survive. It is not exactly 40 years in the desert but sometimes it seems like it.
Nothing earth shattering, just me talking...
More Forum Fun
Some times it's better to be a big fish in a small pond.
According to their Twitter Bio...
Bio: We are only a small Alizée Forum, but please join us. You are always welcome and you will have much fun with us.
You can find them...

Alizée, what am I Googling?
1) "Barcelona" "a cat" "and on her back, a tattoo"
and now a tougher one
Who am I Googling?
2) "Commissaire Valence" "Nicolas Garnier" "3 episodes, 2003-2004"

A previous post called Looking forward to more Alizée I was curious to what photo group would be the most downloaded.
Well without any analyzation here it is:
First was "Hairstyles"
tied for second were "Catty" and "Strapless"
There you go, make of it what you will

The biggest news is a TV appearance May 31

Alizée France looking for feedback, photos, stories....

well, well, well...
@AlizeeSAfrica is back...
along with @Ruroshen...
both doing their best Alizée disappearing act
@jenny_hro87 and @chris_corse catching up with @AlizeeSAfrica
Queen of Discretion, I like that part... @Marotel_Florent
is this a dream?
"The dream of an interview"
some facebook profile pics changed... proof of... of what? of still there?
@alizees_cat was back with a comment
brother and sis have the same pic... ahhhh too cute
Alizée is so refreshingly different, there is no "formula", can you just imagine the discussions that have taken place between her and the record companies over this. I would have loved to been a fly on that wall. Alizée, this isn't how you do it...
A fun interview for me would be sitting down in a room with "the guys" all in one room... The 3 J's, Jeremy, Jo and Johann. OMG that would be the most fun interview ever, talking about this head strong female wife, daughter, sister...
and now there is @Alizee_Spain

Looking forward to more Alizée
It will be fun to see what fashion we will see next.
Whether it's her own T-shirts
or something strapless
in some leather
or something catty
up on stage or out and about
in a pleated or A line skirt
baby dolling it in heels or nikes
looking chic in a hat or looking tough being gansta
always something to look forward to...

It's probably just me but I still want Lilly Town released as a single, somehow, someway!
"Lilly Town": The song was planned as the second single of Psychédélices, but "Fifty-Sixty" was released instead. It was later changed to be released as the third single from the album, but the record label decided to end the promotion of the album. However, the song did get a minimum release in Mexico. It was sent to Mexican radio stations in March 2008. It proved to be successful in Mexican radio stations, enetering the chart of the most played songs.
It is "relatable", it is Alizée singing about things she likes. This format has always had appeal. So many of her early hits were about things that pertained to her. It makes it personal and interesting. Along the lines of Moi... Lolita, J'en ai marre, Lui ou toi, Mon maquis... (I still want to know more about Hey Amigo and Barcelona)
Psychédélices had a song for Juliette (Mademoiselle Juliette), and one for Edie (Fifty-Sixty) now lets release the song as a single for Alizée (Lilly Town).
I truly hope Lilly Town finds its way on to the special album that is being considered. This is my lobby for that hope. There is even enough English with that adorable accent to appeal to the English speaking audience.

When Alizée takes a break... Alizée takes a break
It's who she is. It's part of her persona.
MySpace, it's been over a year, YouTube 9 months, Twitter, blog, her store... Feb.
Website... well you get the picture.
No one "runs" anything in her absence.
Facebook was our last vestige of contact... even if it was just profile pics changing.
But even that has stopped. This is classic Alizée, learn to enjoy it.
