brains and brawn

While most footballers fuss about their hair styles, marketablity and sex appeal, France and Barcelona defender Lilian Thuram is the thinking man's footballeur. For Thuram, there are "much more important things in life than money, fame or even football".

In a new Guardian interview, Thuram describes his experiences as an immigrant in France, his love of Miles Davis, and his dislike of French Neo-Con presidential candidate Nicolas Sarkozy. The Guadeloupe-born defender is politically active - challenging racism not only in European football but in France as a whole - and quite astute on the important issues of the day.

It's a good read, even for you non-soccer folk.


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
