John Kruger's job at the US Marshals is to give witnesses a new identity to protect them from criminals against which they are going to testify. He therefore erases the past life of Lee Cullen who alerted the FBI that her company Cyrez is selling secret military weapons to other countries. But Kruger learns that several of his protected witnesses have been kidnapped or killed, indicating there is a mole in his service. With his old mentor DeGuerin and a few colleagues, they attempt to rescue a kidnapped witness, who is murdered by one of the Marshals. During the flight back, the three rogue Marshals try to kill Kruger, who escapes by jumping with a parachute. Having signalled Cullen that she is not safe anymore, they meet at the planned rendezvous point in the New York zoo. They are attacked by DeGuerin's men but manage to escape. Kruger and Cullen return to Cyrez to decrypt a data disc Cullen had copied with the help of the FBI. They discover that a shipment of weapons is for the Russian mafia is going to leave the Baltimore docks. Cullen is then kidnapped by DeGuerin who takes her aboard the ship. Kruger gets help from Johnny, a witness he recently “erased”, who contacts his cousin, a mobster at the docks. They plan an assault on the dock and manage to free Cullen. After a fight, Kruger exposes DeGuerin's scheme to their boss. Weeks later, the rogue Marshals are indicted but there is not enough evidence for a conviction. Kruger fakes his and Cullen's death. After the rogue Marshals have been liberated, Kruger poses as their limousine driver, then leaves the car on a railway track where it is hit by an oncoming train.

Les noces de la renarde

Categories: [ Books ]

ISBN: 9782266315302

Japon, 1467. Hikari est une yokaï, tantôt femme tantôt renarde vivant dans la forêt avec ses s½urs. Elle tombe amoureuse de Jun, un bûcheron, avec qui elle a des jumeaux. L'aînée de Hikari, Ino la cheffe du clan, est jalouse de sa s½ur et lui ordonne de tuer Jun, ce qu'Hikari ne fait pas. Ino fait alors tuer Hikari et Jun, mais l'esprit de Hikari lui survit à travers ses enfant, que son autre s½ur Akane est envoyée les tuer, ce qu'elle fait à contrec½ur. Cette dernière met plusieurs siècles à retrouver et tuer les descendants d'Hikari. À Tokyo en 2016, Mina, une lycéenne, a le pouvoir de voir les fantômes et les yokaï. Elle découvre que son père, qui est mort quand elle était petite, avait aussi ce pouvoir et semble avoir été tué par un yokaï. Natsume, une camarade de classe de Mina, est la descendante d'une famille de chasseurs de fantômes mais n'a pas le pouvoir de voir ces derniers. Elle entraîne donc Mina sur les traces d'un tueurs de yokaïs. Mina fait la rencontre de nombre d'entre eux dans un bar invisible aux mortels (et donc à Natsume), ainsi que d'Eri, une étudiante du folklore japonais qui semble elle aussi disposer de pouvoirs. Voulant prouver à son père qu'elle est digne de lui succéder, Natsume se laisse posséder par un esprit, justement celui du tueurs de yokaïs. Mina finit par découvrir que cet esprit est celui d'Ino qui cherche à accroître son pouvoir en absorbant celui d'autres yokaïs, afin que les yokaïs reprennent sur les humains le pouvoir qu'ils ont perdu au fil des siècles. Eri combat Ino afin d'exorciser Natsume et de protéger Mina. Cette dernière lui donne le pouvoir hérité d'Hikari, ce qui permet à l'étudiante de vaincre Ino et de recouvrer son identité, Akane, et à Mina d'être enfin soulagée.

Crocodile Dundee

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Sue Charlton, an American journalist, goes into the Australian bush to meet Mick “Crocodile” Dundee who is said to have survived an attack by a crocodile and crawled back home minus one leg. In Walkabout Creek she discovers the story is exaggerated, despite Mick having a bite wound in his calf. They travel together for two days in the wild, retracing Mick's steps on his trip back home. Sue discovers a beautiful country, some of the customs of the aboriginals, and not-quiet falls in love with Mick. She invites him to come back with her in New York. There Mick discovers a world very different from what he knows and commits several social blunders. Sue's fiancé Richard looks down on Mick because they obviously do not have the same upbringing. After one evening in town, Sue and Mick kiss. On the next day, Sue, Richard and Mick are invited to dinner at Sue's father's mansion, where Richard proposes to Sue; she does not reject him, so he assumes she agrees. Mick spends the rest of the night getting drunk and is attacked by a pimp (who he had punched a few days before when he was chatting with prostitutes, unaware of their trade) and saved by Sue's family's driver. The next morning he leaves the hotel and plans to walkabout around America. Sue arrives just after he left, and she runs after him to the subway station. From one end the platform, packed with people, she tells Mick, who is on the other end, that she loves him. As they are too far away, their dialog is relayed by a few people in the crowd.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Mr. Peabody is a talking, very intelligent dog who has adopted a boy, Sherman. Together they travel in time for fun in a machine invented by Peabody named WABAC. When Sherman starts school, he is soon bullied by Penny because his father is a dog. A fight ensues, after which social services, in the person of Mrs. Grunion threaten to take Sherman away from his father. Peabody invites Penny's parents in an attempt to convince them to withdraw their complaint, but Sherman is teased by Penny about George Washington and the cherry tree, reveals the existence of WABAC and takes her to ancient Egypt. Sherman comes back alone and asks Peabody for help, as Penny has stayed behind and wants to marry Tutankhamun. Father and son travel back to Egypt and convince Penny to come back with them. As they are out of fuel, they stop in Florence to visit Leonardo da Vinci who helps them build a device that will jump-start WABAC. During their stay, Sherman and Penny bond. On their way back, Sherman learns that he risks being taken away from his father, they argue, and accidentally arrive during the Trojan war. They have an accident with the horse, Peabody is presumed dead and the two children go back to the present, a few minutes before they have left, to ask help from the earlier Peabody. Grunion arrives soon after and wants to take Sherman away and the Peabody that was thought dead suddenly appears (having built another WABAC in Troy). This causes a confusion in which Sherman touches his earlier self, the tow boys merge which creates a cosmic shockwave that causes the various pasts they have visited to pour into the present. More confusion ensues, at the end of which Grunion's attempt to take Sherman is opposed by Washington and all the other historical characters. Peabody and Sherman then travel a few minutes in the future to repair the rip in spacetime and all historical characters return to their time, Agamemnon taking Grunion with him. Sherman returns to school and is now friends with Penny. In Troy, Agamemnon marries Grunion.

Simulacres martiens

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Books ]

ISBN: 9782843449932

© Amazon.fr

En 1907, dix ans après la Guerre des mondes, la Grande Bretagne est envahie par une deuxième vague d'envahisseurs venus de Mars qui on pris le pouvoir. Un de leurs ambassadeurs invite Sherlock Holmes et le docteur Watson à aller sur Mars pour enquêter sur le meurtre d'un célèbre philosophe martien. Les détectives acceptent, malgré le fait de n'avoir trouvé aucun écrit ou mention de cette personne. Sur Mars, ils sont contactés par Freya Hadfield-Bell, une humaine qui fait partie de la résistance martienne, laquelle tente de contrecarrer les plans d'invasion de la Terre et de l'annihilation des humains dans le but de fuir Mars qui devient peu à peu inhabitable en s'éloignant du soleil. Elle leur révèle que les martiens enlèvent des personnalités terriennes sous prétexte d'un voyage sur Mars et les remplacent par des simulacres, des robots contenant une copie de l'esprit de la personne, qui prennent sur Terre des décisions en faveur des martiens. Holmes et Watson sont ainsi scannés et emprisonnés. Hadfield-Bell les délivre et tente de leur faire prendre la place de leurs simulacres, mais l'opération échoue et elle est tuée sous les yeux de Watson. Le plan de secours, risqué, consiste à envoyer les deux détectives sur Terre dans un vieux vaisseau rebelle. Ils arrivent sains et saufs sur Terre, rentrent déguisés à Baker Street, éliminent leur simulacres et prennent leur place. Quelque temps après, ils apprennent que les rebelles aussi savent fabriquer des simulacres, et que la Freya tuée sur Mars en était un, l'originale étant saine et sauve à Londres.

Camarel 2

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Cooking/Ice Cream ]

Une glace au caramel, version améliorée de la précédente.



Préparer le caramel en mettant l'eau et le sucre dans une casserole et en le faisant cuire jusqu'à ce qu'il soit caramélisé, à l'apparition d'une odeur un peu âcre. Ajouter la crème et mélanger, puis ajouter le beurre et mélanger à nouveau. Délayer 135 g de ce caramel avec la base de crème glacée. Laisser reposer au réfrigérateur une nuit, puis passer à la sorbetière. Manger les 50 g restant sur des crèpes (ou juste comme ça).


Il y avait toujours trop de préparation, ça ne rentrait pas dans la boite de 700 mL.

La glace est moins molle que la version précédente, et a un peu moins de goût de caramel (ce qui au final n'est pas si mal).

J'ai d'abord essayé d'ajouter un coulis de fraise (250 g de fraises équeutées et 45 g de sucre en poudre passées au mixer plongeant) à 500 g de base (à laquelle j'ai ajouté 3 g de Super Neutrose). Le goût et la texture étaient satisfaisants, mais des cristaux de glace se sont formés au congélateur. J'ai alors essayé d'augmenter la quantité de matière sèche tout en gardant les quantités de glucides et sucre de la glace à la vanille.


  • 61 g sucre
  • 76 g lait en poudre
  • 3 g Super Neutrose
  • 1 ½uf (50 g)
  • 60 g sirop de glucose
  • 252 g lait (entier ou 1/2 écrémé)
  • 250 g fraises


Mélanger les ingrédients secs et les ajouter à l'½ufs légèrement battu avec environ 50 g de lait. Fouetter, ajouter le sirop de glucose et mélanger. Ajouter le reste du lait, mélanger puis chauffer tout en remuant continuellement jusqu'à ce que la température atteigne 80 °C. Laisser refroidir. Mixer les fraises et les mélanger à la préparation, puis laisser reposer une nuit au réfrigérateur. Passer à la sorbetière.


La texture est nettement plus visqueuse que la première préparation, et le goût de fraise est un peu moins prononcé.

La recette donne 750 g de préparation, ça ne tient pas dans la boite de glace habituelle. J'aurais pu être plus malin et viser 700 g à la place.

Je me suis demandé si l'½uf jouait un rôle si important dans la crème glacée, sachant que la recette de base de 3 Kaveria contient moins d'un ½uf par 500 g. J'ai donc adapté les proportions pour la base de crème glacée, dans le but de n'utiliser toujours qu'un seul ½uf par préparation. La quantité de glucose diminue légèrement, et la quantité de lait augmente d'environ 50 g (la masse de l'½uf supprimé).

Pour 500 g

  • 42 g sucre
  • 6 g glucose
  • 42 g lait en poudre
  • 42 g sirop de glucose
  • 1 ½uf (50 g)
  • 318 g lait (entier ou 1/2 écrémé)

Pour 600 g

  • 51 g sucre
  • 7 g glucose
  • 51 g lait en poudre
  • 51 g sirop de glucose
  • 1 ½uf (50 g)
  • 390 g lait (entier ou 1/2 écrémé)

Pour 700 g

  • 59 g sucre
  • 8 g glucose
  • 59 g lait en poudre
  • 59 g sirop de glucose
  • 1 ½uf (50 g)
  • 465 g lait entier


Mélanger les ingrédients secs et les ajouter à l'½ufs légèrement battu avec environ 50 g de lait. Fouetter, ajouter le sirop de glucose et mélanger. Ajouter le reste du lait, mélanger puis chauffer tout en remuant continuellement jusqu'à ce que la température atteigne 80 °C.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



In 1944, Indiana Jones and his friend Basil Shaw recover one half of the Antikythera mechanism, built by Archimedes, from Voller, a Nazi astrophysicist who takes part in the looting of a castle in the French Alps. In 1969 in New York City, Indy is old, depressed, and retires from his work at the university; Marion is going to divorce him and his son Mutt died in the Vietnam war. He is contacted by Shaw's daughter Helena who wants to recover the Antikythera. She tells Indy that her late father believed that the mechanism was built to locate a fracture is space-time that would allow to travel back in time. Helena, in debt, just wants to to sell it. They are chased by Voller's men, assisted by the CIA (as Voller played an important role in the Apollo project), but manage to escape through the parade celebrating the Moon landing. Indy, suspected of the murders committed by Voller's men, chases Helena to Tangiers where he prevents the sale of the mechanism in an auction. Accompanied by Helena's young friend Teddy, they escape on a tuk-tuk and are chased by both Voller's men and Helena's former fiancé, a gangster. Voller, disavowed after going rogue, is apprehended by the CIA, but manages to escape. Indy and his friends follow Voller to Greece, where, with the help of a friend, they dive in the Aegean Sea to the second half of the wreck where the mechanism was first found, located much deeper, in order to recover a graphikos that contains coded indications as to the location of the other half of the mechanism. Voller's gang catches up with them again, but they again manage to escape and go to Archimedes' tomb in Sicily, as indicated by the graphikos. Inside a labyrinthine cavern, Indy and Helena find the tomb and the second half of the dial, and notice that Archimedes' skeleton wears a modern wristwatch. Voller appears, wounds and captures Indy. His plan is to travel back to Munich in 1939 to kill Hitler and take his place. They fly away on a WWII German bomber. Helena, who has followed them manages to stow away in the landing gear, and Teddy follows them on a small airplane. They go through the time fissure and arrive at the Siege of Syracuse in 212 BC. Voller's plane is shot down, Indy and Helena manage to jump with a parachute. They meet Archimedes (who has taken the wristwatch from Voller's body) and Indy says he wants to stay here and now to see History happening. Helena knocks him out and takes him back to the present, where he reconciles with Marion.

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Eggsy is attacked by Charlie, a man wearing a prosthetic arm who had been rejected by Kingsman. Eggsy manages to escape, but the remotely controlled arm remains in his car, hacks the Kingsman system and finds enough information to launch a simultaneous attack on all Kingsman members. Only Eggsy and Merlin survive, the former having dinner in Stockholm with his Swedish princess of a girlfriend's parents and the second not being important enough. Kingsman's Doomsday Protocol leads the pair to a whiskey distillery in Kentucky named Statesman, Kingsman's American counterpart, where they discover that Hart has actually survived his attack but lost his memories. They learn about the Golden Circle, the drug cartel that has destroyed Kingsman: it has laced all its drugs with a virus an is blackmailing the world (through the US president) to legalize all drugs in exchange for an antidote. The president pretends to agree but in reality wants to get rid of the drug problem by letting all drug users die. At the Glastonbury Festival, Eggsy manages to plant a tracker on Charlie's girlfriend, which leads them to a secret base in the Italian mountains where he, Harry (who has recovered his memory) and Statesman agent Whiskey manage to steal a sample of the antidote. While fighting back an attack by the cartel's goons in a cabin in the woods, Whiskey accidentally destroys the antidote. The latter is wounded and Harry has a hunch it was not an accident. A clue found at the factory leads Eggsy, Harry and Merlin to Poppy Land, the cartel's secret lair in the Cambodian jungle. Merlin dies on a land mine while allowing Eggsy and Hart to enter the 1950's-town-main-street-themed compound. They defeat Poppy, free Elton John (who was her prisoner), defeat Whiskey who arrived out of nowhere and wants to kill all drug users since his girlfriend was killed by one and finally get the device that allows to remotely trigger the automatic delivery of the antidote all over the world. In the end, the president is impeached, Statesman buys a distillery in Scotland to help rebuild Kingsman and Eggsy marries princess Tilde.

Blue Moon

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Cooking/Ice Cream ]

Adapté de The Enduring Midwestern Mystery of Blue Moon Ice Cream sans le colorant bleu.


  • 2 c. à café de zeste de citron
  • 1/2 c. à café d'extrait de vanille
  • 1/2 c. à café de cardamome moulue
  • 2 feuilles séchées de combava
  • 700 g base de crème glacée


Faire chauffer le lait de la base de crème glacée avec la cardamome et les feuilles de combava pendant 15 min, puis passer dans une passoire pour retirer les feuilles et la cardamome. Préparer la crème avec ce lait, le zeste de citron et l'extrait de vanille. Laisser refroidir et reposer au réfrigérateur pendant une nuit, puis passer à la sorbetière.


Le lait a attaché au fond de la casserole même si je n'ai pas chauffé fort.

Je ne suis pas sûr qu'on sente le combava dans le résultat final.

Camarel 1

Categories: [ Cooking/Ice Cream ]

Une glace au caramel.



Préparer le caramel en mettant l'eau et le sucre dans une casserole et en le faisant cuire jusqu'à ce qu'il soit caramélisé, à l'apparition d'une odeur un peu âcre. Ajouter la crème et mélanger, puis ajouter le beurre et mélanger à nouveau. Délayer le caramel avec la base de crème glacée. Laisser reposer au réfrigérateur une nuit, puis passer à la sorbetière.


La recette produit environ 190 g de caramel.

Il y avait trop de préparation, ça ne rentrait pas dans la boite de 700 mL.

La glace reste très molle même après 24 heures au congélateur, probablement dû à la quantité plus importante de sucre.

Gremlins 2

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



After Mr. Wing dies, the mogwai Gizmo becomes the guinea pig of scientists at a lab in the Clamp Center, a state-of-the-art highrise building in Manhattan owned by eccentric billionaire Daniel Clamp. At the mercy of the chief researcher Dr. Catheter, Gizmo is rescued by his former owner Billy Peltzer and his fiancée Kate, both of whom work elsewhere in the building. Gizmo accidentally gets wet and spawns four evil mogwais who quickly move through the building until they find the restaurants in the shopping area and eat food after midnight, becoming gremlins. They set off the fire sprinklers, quickly spawning thousand more gremlins, some of them changing shape by drinking genetic serums from the lab; one of them becomes pure electricity but gets trapped in the building's telephone system. Billy manages to convince Clamp of danger and devises a plan: move all the clocks of the building forward, attract all the gremlins in the lobby and fool them into exiting the building while the sun is still up. Clamp exits through his secret escape route and coordinate with the emergency services outside. Alas, a thunderstorm hides the sun just as they were ready to let the gremlins out. Billy then sprays all the gathered gremlins with a fire hose and releases the electric one from the phone system, killing them all (except one that was turned into a female and is enticing the chief of security to marry her).

Since then she has taken care of the unwanted, mutant children who were abandoned in the contaminated zone by their backcountry parents. After a long discussion and a failed attempt by Ma Roga to kill her children and herself rather than having to leave her home, they are all taken to the hospital in Hassadar for treatment.

In the man's apartment, he finds a vial of “R” that seems to make nearby Pokémons aggressive. He also meets a talking Pikachu that only he can understand. Pikachu is amnesiac but believes that Harry is not dead. They meet a Mr. Mime, an informant of Harry, who directs them to an illegal Pokémon battle arena where they learn that the Doctor provides R to the owner of the arena to help him win the fights. When the arena is raided by the police, Tim and Pikachu are introduced to a colleague of Harry's who shows them surveillance footage of the accident showing that Harry could not have survived. The pair is then contacted by Howard Clifford, founder of Ryme City who reveals that Mewtwo abducted Harry and erased Pikachu's memory and that his son Roger is behind the creation of R.
