The Complete Guide to Not Giving a Fuck

Monday, April 25th, 2011

Monday, May 31st, 2010

If you aren’t current, you may as well not exist. This is my conclusion after reading Sylvain Carle recent post (in French, sorry) that tells me who inspires him in Montreal, the city I call my home. The gist is the following: Carle lists 21 people that inspire him, and I like him a lot, […]
