In Wildfire, a firefighter is utterly captivated by the flames which surround her, and it’s an obsession that begins to spill into her personal life.
There exists a kind of long-standing rivalry between the French and the English (and the Americans). Some of it is rooted in history, but could some of it come from language? Here's an interesting little theory about why the French, at least, find English-speakers annoying.
I would so watch a French version of The Simpsons that makes fun of itself as much as this couch gag. Hopefully, it could be just as beautifully animated as this too. This couch gag was made by French director Sylvain Chomet and it has Homer eating snails, Bart brutally making his own foie gras and a few other French…
Google Street View, long established as a source for photos of unaware naked people, is being sued by a man in France because one of its camera-mounted cars snapped a photo of him pissing into a courtyard on his property and, as any of us surely would, uploaded it to the internet.
I'm finally jealous of the French. To promote the re-release of The Phantom Menace in THREE DEE, French fast food chain Quick is making a Darth Vader Burger complete with a black bun. A BLACK BUN. On a burger!
If you think your son's sexuality can be determined through any means other than actually having a meaningful, face-to-face conversation, then you need to waste your money on the "Is My Son Gay" French Android App.
Making fun of France is as American as apple pie but it doesn't mean we don't think it's a beautiful country (what? there's more than Paris?). Above France is an app from National Geographic Traveler and Fotopedia that shows off the beauty of the rest of the country. It's a series of jaw dropping photographs that were…
Libya's air power is destroyed. Its ground power is (largely) blasted. All because of a persistent storm of aircraft enforcing a strict no-fly zone—planes like this French Super Etendard fighter, dumping a plume of fuel across the sun.
Basketball practices are pretty standard: shooting drills, defensive slides, three-man weave, suicides, 17s, rebounding, running plays, etc. Not for the French though, those weirdos are using an amusement park ride/giant robot to twirl them in the air to catch passes.
Boy, you'd really flounder about in the aquarium phone booth, wouldn't you? It was installed by two artists for the French Lyon Light Festival, to make a statement about the phone booths that litter our streets, laying dormant save for sex phone-line leaflet hander-outers.
Who gives a shit about 3D? Not me. But! I'm uber excited to see this technology hit our living room. The French have come up with a really, really, really creative way to get rid of those pesky 3D glasses. Watch.
Don't kids say the darndest things? Especially when they're speaking adorable French-Canadian. My favorite moment is when a kid is presented with a floppy disk and says "this goes into an iPod," but if I'm honest I love them all.
Thought getting out of cellphone contracts here in the US was bad? Sorry. It's got nothing on what American-in-Paris Leonora Epstein went through trying to break up with Orange. This is her story. Quelle horreur!
A 69-year-old French woman became trapped in her bathroom after the door locks failed her, and locked her in. She was rescued after three weeks when neighbors became so fed up with her pipes-tapping call for help.
Either a writer at Luxembourgish newspaper L'essentiel is very confused or we've all been seriously deceived. Whichever the case, there's definitely an article claiming that Gizmodo Editor Jason Chen is "an official from Apple."
