French, living in Canada.
Record collector since the '70s, and also a long time fan of The Residents for more than 35 years. In the last years I have completed, improved and cleaned up as much as I could all their releases in the Database, along with their own labels such as Ralph Records, and related artists too. If you are interested, have a look at my Residents' lists.
Today I continue this task with the rest of my collection going through each item one by one. My goal is to provide a detailed and reliable source of information on all these items I own by adding and editing images, BAOI, Companies, Credits, Notes, etc. and also merging duplicates and fixing mistakes. I also keep a daily surveillance on my favorite artists, labels and series.
