Fan survey (anonymous)

This is the same poll as previously posted, except that I made the detailed results only viewable to me, in case people don't want to reply openly to personal questions.
So if you already answered the previous one, you don't have to answer this one.

If you don't have an LJ account and / or want to reply completely anonymously, you can do so in the comments. I am setting them as screened also.

[Poll #1790519]

Thank you!

AAW2009 : Day 5 : fan-art

AAW2009 : banner

I don't know if Twilight has something to do with it, but there's been a lot of new fan-art on Deviant Art since last year... so much that I can't post it all, but here's a few Armand-related ones :

AAW2009 : Day 2 : Real life reference : Paris Opera Garnier

AAW2009 : banner

Since I'm lucky enough to live in Paris, I made a little visit at the Opera Garnier. Some scenes from Neil Jordan's movie adaptation of Interview with the Vampire were shot there. In the hallway especially.
The place is gorgeous in and by itself, so well worth a few pictures...

This Opera is also where the original Phantom of the Opera novel takes place. It's easy to imagine all sorts of grandiose and supernatural beings wandering around.

AAW 2009 Day 1 : Art inspiration : Console des Anges, Collégiale Saint-Martin, Angers

AAW2009 : banner

Recently discovered during a sight-seeing trip in Angers, I fell in awe of this wooden sculpture right away. Though it's not, by far, the oldest piece of the Collégiale Saint-Martin...
But all beautiful, melancolic teenage angels remind me of Amadeo.

Especially as it's going to start in August, since the week Sept. 6 starts on Monday Aug. 31 (... not all countries start the week on Monday? Which ones don't, I can't recall).

So, yeah. I'll repeat the announcement on various comms as we get closer to the week.

AAW 2008 Day 4 : Song inspiration

I'll stand by you (The Pretenders)

(not vampire inspiration per se, more a classic )

Oh, why do you look so sad
The tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me love
Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
'Coz I've seen the dark side too

When the night falls on you
Don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

So, if you may get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
And hey, what you got to hide
I get angry too
But I'm a lot like you

When you're standing at the crossroads
Don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
'Coz even if you're wrong

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

And when,
When the night falls on you baby
You're feeling all alone
You won't be on your own

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me onto your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

Baby on into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

Remembering Leslie Cheung... again

Time passes by so fast, ne?
5 year already.

I thought I had marked the day the years before, but I only did it once.

And I only just realized that it's two days in the calendar where people are all looking forward a certain thing (Halloween or April Fool's, here), that for me are just helpful reminders that "Oh, we're back to the anniversary of []'s death".

I don't have much to say, though. Just... a little friendly poke at his ghost. Keeping a memory.
