So it has been a bit over two weeks since I moved to Paris. No friends, no obvious music scene, nothing for me to do.
Until today.
Over lunch (I woke up too late for breakfast), I was told by the family that I should see the "techno-pahhradd". "What is a techno parad?" "Big noise, lots of people".
Well, not knowing what I was letting myself in for, I walked to La Place Du Bastille with the familly and encountered something spectacular.
was something like it.

People hanging off traffic lights, dancing atop bus stops; bubbles and foam cannons spraying people; huge lorries with their sides down, blasting out music from speaker stacks manipulated by DJs. Throngs of people dancing and following this flotilla of groove.
Ok, a little gushing but it was so SO cool biggrin.gif Blue smoke hung in the air, riot police quietly sitting at the sidelines and people in charity t-shirts collecting money and handing out badges. Imagine a techno version of Notting Hill Carnival.
I will post more pics when I get the photos uploaded (I hate digital cameras- they know this and so refuse to work for me), but for now; here is the web-page for the event.

Oh, one last thing- they gave out free chocolate pudding yoghurts and there was candyfloss. Lots of it biggrin.gif

"Assemble the sound against the hunger!"

Yep, that sounds like a good idea to me. It looks really fun, although someone should tell the guy on the left that he's got his underwear on over his trousers...

A society that takes itself too seriously risks bottling up its tensions and treating every example of irreverence as a threat to its existence. Humour is one of the great solvents of democracy. It permits the ambiguities and contradictions of public life to be articulated in non-violent forms. It promotes diversity. It enables a multitude of discontents to be expressed in a myriad of spontaneous ways. It is an elixir of constitutional health. J.

It looks a lot like one of the gay pride marches, and I did notice at least one rainbow flag in the photos.

"Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form." - Plato

Or course not- I was far too busy dancing, taking photos and eating chocolate puddings!

The Techno Parade is once a year, but there are lots of parades like the Gay Pride parade and a time of music parades (everywhere in France).

The Gay Pride one should be so SO much fun biggrin.gif The rainbow flag was atop a resturaunt where there was a chef, a sailor and someone else dancing (not sure if the sailor was in the photo)

For a condom shaped hat, I am pretty annoyed that it wasn't more sombrero shaped...
