Some news about Trintignant at the Cesar yesterday : he made a rare and short appearance by a video, doesn’t look so bad but frail as expected. Quite happy and surprised to see him again. Hope it’s not his last apperance at the Cesar but think it might will

One of the most prominent historians and novelists in Italy, Valerio Massimo Manfredi, has been found unconscious at home with his wife, likely due to carbon monoxide intoxication. Condition unknown, but seems serious and rumours earlier floated about his death. Would be quite shocking.

Discharged.

Recent photos of Bernard Tapie after the burglary of his house : he and his wife were hit by the thieves. Looks (as one can expect) awful

French historian Marc Ferro has died at 96 : I was sure he was a member of the Academie Francaise but turns out he wasn't… anyway, a well deserved hit for me after all these deaths that I missed… Rest In Peace !

Another johnny foreigner no cunt has heard of being posted about by Etush should be fucking pushing up daises given this is the kind of 'research' he wastes his spare time on. Even better a two for one bonanza of absolute fucking nobodies. Hooray for us might forumers to be blessed with this inaneness.
