Every couple of weeks, I share personal updates to my subscribers over email. Here’s the latest issue of my “TibzLetter”.
It’s been about 3 weeks since my last newsletter. How’s it going?
Before we begin, here’s some relaxing music for you to listen to, while you’re reading this:
It is Friday, October 14th at the time of writing. A lot has been happening, outside of work, and I’ve had a lot on my mind lately.
On today’s TibzLetter:
- Preparing a trip to Paris
But let’s talk about work first: until my Parisian trip (November 2nd-10th — see you there?), I’m trying to focus on doing a lot of work and billing my clients accordingly, so that I can take it easy (easier?) by the time we get to the end of the year…
Some days are a bit hectic, I have to say, balancing some time between two clients on tasks & projects that both have certain level of urgency. But some other days, like today, are a bit quieter and allow me to breathe in a little.
Life on the French Riviera
The weather has been really nice here, up until October 2nd. I managed to beat my self-imposed challenge of wearing shorts every day of the month of September.
Since then, it’s been a bit grey-er and a bit cold-er. And as I type these lines, we’ve just had about 36 hours of straight up rain and storm. It’s nice though: I swapped continuous small bits of rain 3 times a week for a much warmer, nicer weather where, in turns, you get 2-3 days of intense rainstorm.
Preparing a trip to Paris
I’ll be in Paris next month. (Or did I mention that already?) Well, I’ve already got a few activities planned out, amongst which one exhibition and two concerts:
- The Hergé Exhibition at the Grand Palais.
- Phantogram live at Les Petits Bains.
- John Carpenter Live at Le Grand Rex (the formerly biggest cinema in Europe).
Which leads me to…
Halloween is in about 2 weeks, and I’ll be travelling to see my family and relatives when it happens, so I decided to start early this year: this means finally watching these classic late 1970’s to early 1990’s horror movies from the Master himself.
On my watchlist so far, I’ve got:
- The “Apocalypse Trilogy” which actually consists of
- The Thing
- Prince of Darkness
- In the Mouth of Madness
- They Live
- The Fog
- Escape from L.A. (I’ve seen the first “Escape from New York” recently)
- Big Trouble in Little China
And as a non-Carpenter-related bonus:
- Halloween I & II (the Rob Zombie remakes)
- Hellraiser (which believe it or not, I’ve never seen)
If you have any other suggestions, I’d be happy to hear it: leave me a comment below!
That’s is for me this week. I had a lot to talk about, but I’ve saved some for next week! Take care all of you, and have a great weekend!
