Been in black & white Paris for an afternoon, aiming second hand booksellers. Under the heavy snow, we finally dropped in an old cinema behind the Sorbonne and watched a black & movie: Noblesse oblige

Main feature: one actor plays all the members of an old english aristocratic family. I got in as i was reading a sci-fi novel, from spanish novelist J C Somoza, The String Theory, emphasizing the idea that we are a completely different thing every new second, and it’s a property of the brain to keep it as a line. It was worth the few insights, but as a whole doesn’t make sense.

I keep the idea of a collection of “I” accumulating and sedimenting, against the illusion of linearity of name & bloodright.

“one actor plays all the members of an old english aristocratic family” now reminds me of “Dinner for one”. Do you know that? It’s THE german television classic, being repeated every year on New Year’s Eve since 1963 and therefore the most frequently repeated TV programme ever. It’s the recording of a theater play by english writer Laurie Wylie and basically is about the 90th birthday party of an old aristocratic english lady that she wants to celebrate with her old friends – but they are all dead by now. So her old butler James has to play all the friends roles which basically means to drink for them and try to imitate their way of speaking. In the end he gets more and more drunk and guess how it ends…Happy new year!
