J’adore Carla

15Aug08

I can’t stop listening to Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s new album, Comme Si de Rien N’Etait.  It is upbeat yet soothing and wildly addictive.  I particularly adore the track that she sings in her native Italian, il vechhio e il bambino.  Her music is fresh and contemporary with a touch of the ethereal and the baroque.

I wanted to call attention to Carla’s musical talents, but of course, everyone has by now seen the cover of the September issue of Vanity Fair featuring the stunning première dame de France dressed in riding boots and breeches, lounging on an 18th century style settee with the caption:  “Carla Bruni:  The Next Jackie-O?”  Do ArtsÉtoile readers think she is the next Jackie-O?  I do, she encompasses the elegant simplicity of the American First Lady, plus she is an artiste.   

Although her former unabashedly libertine lifestyle has raised some eyebrows, the French have been won over by her composure, elegance, and class.  Whatever you think of the controversy surrounding Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, you will undoubtedly be seduced by her music.

    I could not agree more Emily! Carla is the picture of elegance, but with an edge. You’ve convinced me to listen to her music and admire her for more than her presence and beauty (she really does Dior justice).

    I loved her debut CD “Quelqu’un M’a Dit”.. My booker from Sydney Joseph sent it to me. Granted, he also once recommended Naomi Campbell’s “Baby Woman”, so I was understandably a bit dubious about Ms. Bruni’s efforts, but was beyond pleased once I gave her a chance. Thanks for the reminder about the new release Emily!

    I believe what you published made a lot of sense.
    However, what about this? what if you typed a catchier title?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t good, however suppose you added
    a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Jadore Carla | ArtsÉtoile is a little boring.
    You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post titles to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it
    could bring your website a little bit more interesting.

  12. Online Casinos Offer Greater Bonuses

    A lot of people wonder why poker has become one of the established varieties of entertainment in the
    neighborhood. For people who frequent gambling houses, it might not be difficult to resolve.
    However, for those who stay away from casinos, this could be something troublesome to spell out.
    This article will discuss for you the formidable logic behind why gambling has gained some type of
    authority in the field of recreation.

    Statistics by Nielsen Media Research really showed that in the
    UK alone, gambling online traffic was up by 40% over 2009.
    It also found that 46% of online players were women and about 50% were middle
    aged men with above average salaries. And in the US, the National
    Annenberg Survey with the Young discovered that
    some 16% of college-aged men visited online casinos one or more times a month, up dramatically over 2008 figures.

    The second factor you should consider in choosing a casino site
    is what games they have to offer. I guess it will be fair to convey that
    all online casino operators provide you with the classic games
    including Roulette, Craps, Blackjack, Baccarat etc.
    in addition to a range of slot games. While this may be enough for many players, you can find casinos around that offer theme based has classic
    games. Rome Casino as an example offers players an ‘Ancient Rome’ theme for their games.
    I really like Party Casino’s software and Casino.com’s.
    Their software packages are really advanced, fluid in addition to their games options are fantastic.
    Microgaming is actually popular software provider and offers
    great flawless gaming. The only downside to them is they do not
    allow USA players to utilize their gambling software.

    To find out more about Party Casino and Casino.com see authors
    resource box.

    Customer service is essential for any online shop, but particularly to the high stakes gambler.
    Check out the site’s customer satisfaction and make sure
    they offer convenient times and methods for contact. Make sure the casino’s license
    is current and issued by a decent licensing body. Observe the
    casino site’s banking methods to see if they accept different currencies.
    Also question the casino’s withdrawal limits.

    Many websites also assist in moving funds and facilitating account deposits and obtain payouts when playing an individual’s preferred betting house
    games on the web. There is no hassle whatsoever in wanting to get the perfect functions in each and
    every online casino you could possibly come across with on the web.
    They are mainly that will provide a person an excellent gambling encounter
    using full functionalities available and profitable cash incentives and add-ons so
    that you can encourage a person to continue playing.

  13. An addiction to sports gambling is rather similar
    to any other kind of addiction as the addiction begins to take charge and control your life.
    In fact, a great many goal-based writings are geared towards improving businesses at the bottom
    line in terms of increased efficiency, increased productivity, etc.
    A team with 2 losses might have lost both games right before the upcoming
    game, and be on a losing streak.

    The lack of this publicity contributes directly to the amount of the population that watches other sports
    instead of soccer. This is a competitive advantage for sports betting businesses because the options that it gives are more than what anybody expects.

    There is also a trend of many college students running up debts on sports betting.
