Don't be passive and dumb. Raise some noise!
Did you know you can order French wine in four sizes: demi (half a litre), distingué (one litre), formidable (three litres) and catastrophe (five litres)?
A fitting entrée, one might say, to tonight’s broadcast of the Quiksilver Pro where Surfline calls six-to-eight-foot faces early, easing. Offshores in the morn.
Pour yourself a drink. Yes?
Mine is champagne and barley water or, if friends arrive, which is unlikely, a turkey cocktail: to one large turkey add one gallon of vermouth and a demijohn of angostura bitters. Shake.
If you’ve been following these Comment Live streams you’ll notice a not-so-subtle lesson in modern French cinema dressing up the main photo: we began on day one with Brigitte Bardot from Et Dieu Créa la Femme (watch here), Alain Delon in Plein Soleil (watch here), Ludivine Sagnier in Swimming Pool, day four was Gaspar Noé’s Love and, today, Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos in Blue is the Warmest Colour.
Anyway, contest etc.
Watch here, comment you know where and wait for Longtom’s hot volume analysis tomorrow.
