Lifehacking and guest blogging

Filed under: — Natasha @ 5:43 pm


The second edition of Lifehacking Academy in Arnhem was again successful and had some good vibes floating around. After giving my podcasting workshop to a small group of very curious people, I attended an unconference led by Microsoft employee Peter de Haas. It is nice that Microsoft lets him take part in these things without having to plug anything. That was very refreshing.

On a literally other note, I can’t help by share my enthusiasm for the latest Phonoboy album, “Pas de Temps”, an indie pop/rock band from Munich that sings in French. Besides a very tight sound, their French lyrics are very functional and to the point, something Francophones don’t generally do.

I tell time on the radio

Filed under: — Natasha @ 9:23 pm


A French friend of mine, Laurent Chambon, politician and musician here in Amsterdam, got me to record the hours of the day in French for Radio Akasanoma, better known as Radio Francophone. Radio Francophone is a French-language FM radio station in Amsterdam Zuidoost that was started by Africans, but now caters to an increasingly broader audience of francophones, which are French-speaking people from any country. Since I have an unmistakable French Canadian accent straight out of Montréal, Laurent asked me to record the hours of the day. Just tonight, having finally made the time to listen to a cultural programme on the radio through the Internet, I heard myself say “Il est 21h” (It is 9 o’ clock), which was cool. I will be interviewed on Radio Francophone sometime in January about French music and culture in Amsterdam, but let’s get through the holidays first.
