You mean my 3:05 version is incomplete by 9 seconds? I've been living a lie.

How about La vie C'est Chouette via Jodie ? From the film " Moi,Feur Bleue " Mostly in English !

I was contacted about this too, and any copy I've been able to find in cyberspace cuts off at the 3.05 mark, even though they're different bitrates. My guess is they're all copies of the same original vinyl rip someone shared and have been converted to dif bitrates. The only luck I think anyone would have is to get the original vinyl and rip it, which does seem to sell for pretty cheap, e.g. here.

Whoa! Rough weekend--I'm just now recovering enough to get back online.

Glad to see my two e-mails (to Mordi and Spiked's Christine) drew some attention. For those of the rest of you out there who aren't 'in the know', let me fill you in on what I'm up to: I've been wanting to publish the second issue of my Jodie Foster/Laird Koenig/'The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane' fanzine known as 'Cellar'. However, I had intended to include a CD with each copy of the second issue. The CD would consist of Jodie's few official recordings ('Getting Some Feeling', 'One Dream at a Time', 'La Vie C'est Chouette', 'When I Looked at Your Face', 'Je T'attends Depuis la Nuit des Temps', and the two pieces of video from French telly circa Dec., '77). However, the original rip (from 'Jodie Foster Par Yoille'?) does indeed cut short. Also, the current version running at that website is faulty; I could only access it after I reinstalled RealPlayer (not exactly my favourite media player, to say the least), and it doesn't appear to operate offline (maybe I'm screwing something up--I'm not exactly proficient when it comes to downloads, rips, transfers, etc.). So...if someone out there would be willing to help out, and post/send/whatever a decent full-length rip of 'Je T'attends...', I would be back in business, and it would be greatly appreciated. (Free copies of Cellar #2 are already reserved for Mordi and Christine for being of help.)

Actually, I am rather impressed that this little inquiry of mine received any attention/responses at all. Has anyone else noticed how Jodie Foster fans tend to fear one another or something? It's almost as if a few little neurons kick in and remind each of us how Foster fans tend to be more intelligent, artistic, and darkly philosophical (having gleaned elements of social Darwinism, existentialism, etc. from growing up on films like Down The Lane, Taxi Driver, Echoes of a Summer, etc.). Whatever the case, from my own experiences online and off, Foster fans tend to shun one another, and--in some cases--be incredibly envious of one another, as if jealous that he or she might have a bigger claim on Jodie's influence or something....

So to those who dared to come out of your shells: Thanks for all your help and responses. Maybe 'Yoille' (or whoever the original ripper was) could be encouraged to re-rip a better, full-length MP3. Maybe if we all petitioned him/her with e-mails...?

I believe we have a copy of the 45 at the record store at which I work; I'll check Monday and see what the time listed on the label says and rip a copy; not having a blog, I can't post it, but I can e-mail it to anyone who wishes. Check back Tuesday morning!

thanks genkp- if you managed to sort that out it would be fantastic- if you do, please email it to me and i'll get in touch with rob (see above).

I recorded the Jodie song; however, the back of the pic sleeve lists it as being 3:10, and my recording fades out at 3:09. Is there really a 3:14 version? If so, does anyone still want this? There's a little surface noise at very beginning and end, but could be cleaned up, I'm sure. I don't have the software. If anyone still wants, let me know. I would like a copy of the finished Jodie cd, by the way.

By Anonymous genkp, at 21 November, 2006 10:59  

Well, great to know I got a few people interested in something Fosteresque for a change, rather than put off or intimidated (like I talk about in my comment above). I figured the full, uncut version would be around 3:14 in length because that's the timing on the live version from French telly; but 3:09/3:10 makes perfect sense when one makes allowances for lack of intro, audience applause, etc. This is the second offer I've now received for a downloadable copy--Christine from Spiked Candy being the other. Whoever can deliver me a decent-sounding copy--preferably applicable to Windows Media Player (Quicktime/I-tunes doesn't seem too fond of me, while utilizing RealPlayer requires extensive knowledge of brain surgery, string theory, and a memorization of Sartre's 'Being & Nothingness'--I can never seem to get it to work properly, and I can't locate a decent replacement player that can handle any MP3 type)--will be surely sainted if s/he happens to croak before moi. Whatever the case, I can be contacted at nocturnaliris@nf.sympatico.ca. I hope to have Cellar #2, complete w/ the disc of Foster MP3s, ready for an early 2007 publishing. The only other problem now is deciding which issue to enclose the disc in. You see, it's been so long since #1, I have enough material worked up for 2 issues, and I can't decide whether to include the Foster disc w/ an issue dedicated mainly to Koenig's novel version of 'The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane', or a more broad-themed, 'odds 'n' sods' issue. I would also like to include in future issues a CD of rock numbers (mostly punk it seems) that use Jodie as subject matter, a Foster interview(s) CD, and if I can ever find a decent copy, finally a 'Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane' soundtrack CD (the LP usually goes on ebay for between $100 and $150, by the way--bidders often behave like complete psychotics!). Anyway, everybody's welcome to keep in touch....

glad you're on the way to getting a complete version- i'm really looking forward to hearing the cd and reading the magazine.

i'm sure we've created a bit of a buzz around the publication and i hope you get some more pople interested through all the blogs that are supporting you!

Oh, come on now, Mordi, don't go blowing things out of proportion. It's just a little 24-pg., 8" X 11" fanzine focussing on a rather eccentric, fringe and (sometimes) dark 3-headed topic: Jodie Foster, author Laird Koenig, and the point at which they converge--Nicolas Gessner's film adaptation of Koenig's novel, The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane. This sort of project can be only be expected to run for, say, four, maybe five issues at best--and the first issue of this kind of fringe fanzine is nearly always the finest, due to the introductory sort of stance that it must take for the sake of readers unaware of the film/novel/actor/musician/etc. that it deals with; also, first issues (quite often like first albums and novels) always show off the passion and interest that had been building up inside its editor(s)/creator(s) for sometimes a decade or two--everybody who read and/or reviewed it implied the same of Cellar #1. After Cellar has had as subject-milking a run as I can give it, then it will most likely become a website, or part of a website, with all 4 or 5 of the back issues uploaded for extending and commenting upon indefinitely. While I'm on the subject, anyone is welcome to submit a review, essay, related-poem, etc. for consideration, by the way. Drop me a line at nocturnaliris@nf.sympatico.ca for queries/details. (Actually, I'm involved in publishing two or three other underground or fringe zines, including 'Contemporary Ghazals'--the world's first English-language publication dedicated to the type of Middle Eastern poetry that lends it its title. I really should promote things like this better on the internet, I guess; however, the internet doesn't seem too interested in stuff that doesn't touch somehow on extreme porno, mindless pursuits, and the lowest lows of contemporary moronic pop culture. For example, most of the stuff relating to ghazal poetry, myself, etc. has been deleted from those mindless online encyclopedias. They consider subjects like 'bukkake' and individual soap opera characters to be of more cultural significance. Go figure. I have a blank, empty MySpace site, completely undeveloped. Maybe I should try and develop that into something....) As for the CD (hopefully to be the first of at least three--a compilation of punk rock tributes to Foster, and the original 1976 soundtrack album being the other two I've envisioned), it's nothing to get too excited about; it will only consist of those few known tracks of hers plus (hopefully) some artwork culled from those old singles' front covers--unless, of course, there are other recordings out there that are even more obscure and less known, and someone would like to let us all in on them!!! Anybody feel like doing some research...?
