Nobody parties like the Communist Party?

My friends, I’ve got some news for you. Monday evening, at five thirty, when the park, the museum and the palace are closed, there is going to be a party at the Queen’s Theater! This is a very small theater, originally built for two hundred and fifty people, but now because of the fire code it can only seat one hundred and fifty. The theater is closed. Very rarely, once a year at the most, you are allowed to peak in and this is it. Man, I’m telling you, there is total secrecy, no tickets, no information anywhere. This is a private party, the private of the private! The founder of the Rose of Versailles manga, Ryoko Ikeda, and her followers, dressed in the costumes of the Court of Louis XVI, all will be there. Ryoko Ikeda is going to sing her songs, these are all compositions of Marie-Antoinette! She is expecting for the ghost of the Queen to attend…. Sounds like an event where you knock in the door, screaming, “Fire! Fire!!!”

    Right now I am studying protein liquefaction caused by alkali burns – your blog has been a delightful mental vacation, albeit for only a few moments. I love it.

    More to come –


    • Well, for you Jimmy, the small but meaningful article to read is about the anal fistula of Louis XIV. I also have some fresh pictures I need to add there. Tonight, I will add them tonight! And thank you, Jimmy. Thank you for your kind comment!
