virgin megastore champs-élysées

from may 3rd to the 27th, i went on a trip to europe with rox, visiting several cities in three countries: spain (madrid, barcelona), france (aix-en-provence, marseille, cannes, grasse, montpellier, cassis, paris), italy (florence, rome).

our last stop was in paris. we spent one afternoon walking on les champs-élysées. we spent some time in the virgin megastore. the first item i picked up was vitalic's most recent "flashmob". then, browsing the french rock section, i found some old indochine albums, "l'aventurier" and "3". since these were all french releases, they were cheaper there than at home.

i also saw a new album by saez, "j'accuse". i had loved his debut "jours étranges" back when it was released a decade ago, but hadn't heard anything else since. so i was hesitant, and didn't get the new one. it's unfortunate, since returning home and sampling a few songs, i realized i should have bought it there. the stores here do not stock it...
