Le coup de gueule qui va avec :
Comment peut-on passer un concert à regarder au travers de son écran de téléphone ?
A quoi servent les 45s de chanson enregistrées dans ces piètres conditions ?
Sinon, il est très désagréable d’avoir à se tortiller pour apercevoir la scène derrière les bras tendus avec des écrans lumineux qui s’interposent.
Je dois être trop vieux.
