Music ?
An endless list again : electro, classical, Rn'B, soul, jazz, pop, funk, rock, techno...

Books ?
Same issue. A few random authors I do love, aside from the classics : Zelazny, Simmons, Gombrowicz, Merle, Moerell, Moebius, Franquin... they are legions.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Jump from a cliff paragliding, rollerskate down the Mont Ventoux, make a perfect flip on a car's roof on a Spanish highway, visit USA east coast at the age of 11, leave home to Berlin at the age of 18, set up my first business at 19, survive drugs abuse during my 20's, live with a woman (that's a tough one), set up a 2nd business at the age of 23, live in Amsterdam 4 years, have sex at the office, invite friends and family in top French restaurants, meet incredibly smart people on the streets of Europe while filming them, be part of humanity, get fired from 3 companies within 6 months on purpose, wake up at night realising I had to change my zombie-office-worker-life and resign in the morning, remain sensitive in a cynical world, live according to my dreams whenever I can, fight ignorance obscurantism and stupidity, decide to become a filmmaker at the age of 28, stop caring about what people have to say about me or my life. And right now, I'm becoming a professional chef on yachts.
