Best get down to Paris Launch Party number three!
[Editor’s note: apparently freestyle reporting is now a thing]

Round 1 kicked off with L’insaissisable asking that we Changeons, so we did: to Bibi and Flavie singing Asha’s Jailer and a few strophes from On my way. Maxx asked for Closure, Angelo lost his virginity in the Sand, and René very clearly explained why you should drop a few coins in the SwagBox every Thursday, lest you be swept away by a tsunami. Ginger Scott came back and gave us a special peek at his Love in Paris trailer, Georgina, virgin, recited some lines from Devan and then Henry blew some beats for his last night at PLU! We’ll miss you! Finally, our special guest Jude Cowan Montague took us on a sing-along animal safari:

Round 2 went on until 2 a.m., featuring Long Island Ice Tea and: David Blair‘s insanely trippy video:

The Telepathic Motion Picture of THE LOST TRIBES , intro [2003,2015] from David Blair on Vimeo.
