Lou Etendue (out 29/09/2004, Karaoke Kalk) was in my mind for 3 years. I was lucky to not be alone with the project, since Digiki joined in 2003 and helped me to shape it. And Lou-Asia was also a great and generous character. Now I want it to have its own life, like a child. This album was an amazing experience of mixing the real life with a fantasy world; we did create une geographie de l'imaginaire in which you could get easily lost. You could also find the directions by following the poetic boundaries.
I want to follow these steps in my next project, Go To Togo. In this album, what I called geographie de l'imaginaire will become real, since I plan to go to Togo in 2005, by road (Alger, Tamanrasset, Agadez, Niamey and then Lome, the capital of Togo). I don't want to continue to be influenced by the medias, I want to see by myself how the people are. Hoping to not get lost in the desert between Tamanrasset and Agadez (900 kilometers of sand).

I gave her a copy of the Lou Etendue LP, since we don't have the CD yet. What a strange monster too. And what a nice experience to have recorded her in LA the last year, on her terrace.

Par l'amour fou
Ce qui prouve
Comme dit mon pere
Qu'on ne meurt d'amour

a powerful water spouts out of this stone
which is love became an inexhaustible source
water that I have not the right to drink
water that I can give without impoverishing myself.

Born in 1966, Toog endured a lonely upbringing. At the age of 10, trying to escape an alcoholic father, Toog is sexually molested by a family friend. His parents divorce. Toog lives with his subversive radical mother, and begins to dress up in women's clothing.
In 1985, he stars in a porno film. The film quickly becomes a phenomenon. It was unprecedented. The FBI later estimated that Toog Goes to Hollywood had probably grossed at least $600 million. The same year, Toog was arrested after fleeing a shooting at Club Palace in Paris, for criminal possession of a firearm. Toog was also convicted on felony narcotic possession charge, for trying to sell cocaine. He stayed in jail for three months.
In 1987, Toog beats a photographer, and he is sentenced to one year probation. In 1993, Toog allegedly stole a pair of sneakers, threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend, threatened a security guard and finally ended up in a drug treatment facility.
In 2004, Toog's having an audience with the Pope. Pope advises him to continue with music career, and not switch to ministry work.
Zak Penn is playing his own role as the producer of a 35mm documentary about Nessie. Herzog is the director. Herzog's becoming the cameraman when the crew vanishes. Penn is betraying Herzog by shooting himself a scene in which the sonar scientist, a super hot model, has to dive into the frozen Loch Ness with a tiny american-flag bikini, to turn on the microphone. Herzog is getting angry against Penn... Herzog is also having his own crew following him and making a film about him shooting a documentary in this mockumentary.
Before the trip, during the party at Herzog's house in Wonderland Avenue (L.A.), Herzog speaks about the people who have been kidnapped and raped by aliens. He wonders why most of them are overweight american women. There is no experience like this reported in Ethiopia or Nigeria. He also speaks about "ecstatic truth", a notion which seems to be the very essence of his art: "poetic, ecstatic truth. It is mysterious and elusive, and can be reached only through fabrication and imagination and stylization."
Werner Herzog seems to have always tried to film what happens when control seems to be lost. He must have showed a lack of control where it was almost total control. A dangerous game. Then he switched on the camera and started to shoot, moments of real life happened, the actors being confused and quite lost. Then it was possible for him to make the Bacchantes dance, while becoming Dyonisos himself. His own talent as an actor (Harmony Korine's Julien Donkey Boy) is part of the process of grandeur of his Kinski movies. He was more of an actor than Kinski himself. This is why Zak Penn is totally right to make Herzog play the Kinski role in his film.

Personne ne remplace le nuage contre lequel s'appuie l'echelle. Se souvenir du point d'equilibre ne rien perdre de la tension de sa recherche. Rire aussi de la courbe et de l'impossible verticale de la chute.

Je ne suis qu'un rouage une sorte de coude personne ne choisit pour moi je suis ici parce que je crois et j'ai raison de crier fort. Je suis victime tout voulu de l'organisation ils m'ont dit pense comme cela et c'est moi la ceinture ma propre conviction. Au milieu des enfants ils m'ont dit j'ai voulu porte une ceinture qui fait boum au milieu des enfants d'Alania c'est moi la ceinture qui parle et le souffle c'est moi qui explose.

Trees or cars, not trees against cars.
