Tsuru & The Bride Present… Aaron Loves Meghan: December In Paris Mixtape & Film!!!

All photographies by me

As you could probably tell from the posts this week (unless you are reeeeeally not paying much attention), we are back! The unimitatable TsuruBride (aka Baby) and I spent last week in Paris (with a day trip to Lyon on Baby’s birthday to visit our friends Isa & Ben from Our Society). What an amazingly awesomely awesome trip it was!

Paris Graffiti No. 1

Epic…. So epic…. but unfortunately with a week off from work and the impending time off for the holidays, work is doing a double-time, if not a triple-time, on our asses.  So, though the posts may be a little few & far between until things settle down a bit, we’ll do what we do as much as we can do it…

But back to Paris. I’d never gone before, Baby had gone a few times — it is her favourite place and like I said it was her birthday (the big 3-0), so really, what better way to celebrate?  — Exactly, there is no better way.

What can I say about the trip?  It’s fucking Paris!  It’s beautiful, it’s romantic, it was rainy & grey & amazing!


Ah, all things chaud, all things chaud.  Yes, it was chilly — though really, crappy weather in Paris kicks crappy weather in Columbus’s ass any day of the week — so that may have had something to do with it, but I’d never had “vin chaud” before — nor chaud crepes with motherfucking nutella — and, well, let’s just say, chaud & I are now intimately familiar with each other.

Wait, that sounded weird.

Rue Mouffetard

I’ll tell you what… instead of my jibber-jabberin’ and really offending even more Parisians — yeah, that was me who spilled his red wine on the group of Parisian business men at the table next to us when we deeked into a cafe on Rue Mouffetard — how we get to the good stuff? You see, I brought you back a little sumtin-sumtin…

No, it’s not much, just a little thing we “picked up”.  A little mixtape and a little film I made, you know, no biggie.

So, while I get to work so I can get this weekend on — 3 xmas parties… hooray (I’m tired already) — how about you load up our little film, then load up our epic mixtape and come along with us down the rues of Paris (and a little Lyon), where the vin is chaud, the baguettes are hard — lol — where the croques are extra cheesy, and the mustard ain’t really all that yellow as….
