It's never too late to be who you might have been.

When I first stepped off the Boat in France, there were two things to greet me at the port waiting area. 1: A large "Welcome to France" sign, written in many languages.
And THIS on a television screen playing the top twenty music videos.
Ya....welcome to France.
It turns out that there are multiple versions (HERE and HERE) of this music video...because I watched them all at the port...feeling very surreal.
I now have a crush on Julien Dore, who apparently became famous by winning a reality T.V. show. His first hit was "Moi...Lolita" which was originally made famous by "Alizee" a female French popstar. Julien Dore, who is also the great grandson of famous illustrator Gustave Dore, sang the song with all the original words and from a female perspective...which works in a weird way... by emphasizing it's haunting... creepiness.(?)
But thinking back on the song "Les Limites"... here is the English translation for your convenience.
I easily go beyond all bounds, when I have a go at it I consume enormously The aim is to feel things So I go overboard, and I like to exaggerate it irks brave and reasonable people who keep within the bounds
Hey this is no dream, I know when I stop, I’ll be Leaving Paris I know, later I’ll pay for this*
I overstepped the bounds Easily Readily Yeah, I overstep the bounds Without problems of ethics
I will pay for that I’ll end up in hard labor I’ll be breaking stones in Guyane
I overstepped the bounds Easily Widely When I start I finish My job properly I consume of course the most liquids possible and sometimes even solids nicely plump and chubby
