In the crowded and hugely delayed RER A this morning, I managed to extract from the numerous  and unwanted signals emitted by the earphones of most passengers in my carriage the distinctive whine of the bombarde in Plantec‘s Reverzhi, a great album backing traditional Celtic music with a guitar baseline!!! Not that this excuses in any way this annoying habit of letting fellow passengers endure one’s own musical choice by using high-volume low-quality earphones in public transportation… Especially when I could not pick the passenger listening to Plantec. Tonight, as a coincidence, the passenger facing me was finishing a book by Cormac McCarthy, whose Border trilogy I am reading at the moment. Being in a Parisian and not a New Yorker metro, I did not engage into a literary conversation!
