Les vieux clips de Nico, ça fait encore plus rêver que la perspective qui nous attend d'ici 75 jours... 

Bah oui, on vend du rêve avec Musubi San (tu m'expliqueras demain ce pseudo d'ailleurs) :D

Pendant quelques secondes, je pensais perspective 3d avant de capter ... il faut que je me casse, après 11 heures passées à l'agence, il est grand temps ! 

Bye !


PS: demain soir, putain de scoop si tout va bien !!!!!!
