  1. What Are You Watching Now? - 2019

    I'm watching some episodes from the american version of Kitchen Nightmares, in which a famous chef tests and tries to improve different restaurants, and it's making me appreciate even more the restaurants in my area. In the two italian restaurants near my grandparents home, you can see the cookers making the meals in real time, whereas in the show the kitchens are closed from the customer's view and they use the microwave a lot.
  2. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    I watched Shazam last night. It's a simple movie, with a straightforward plot and some tender moments. But it was also campy, which made it less fun for me.
  3. Stranger Things

    I finished it last night, it's another good season that I enjoyed. I wish that for season 4 they tone down the pop culture references, some of them kind of break the immersion.
  4. Your Book Activity - June 2019

    I restarted The Hobbit, by JRR Tolkien, and this time I intend to finish. "In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit."
  5. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    I watched Videodrome, by David Cronenberg, the other day. It's a very particular thriller, with vivid supernatural imagery. I actually dreamed about it later. The director has some other movies in the genre with strange synopses.
  6. The Gaming Box

    I got Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, I wasn't expecting it to be hard. I read that there's a habit one should build in order to get used to the controls, I'll try it eventually. I still haven't won the introductory race.
  7. Woolf Woolf's reads, 2018

    Hi, it's nice to talk to you again, Athena. I wish you a good reading year too, and a good year for everything else.
  8. Woolf Woolf's reads, 2018

  9. What's the weather like?

    It's okay. Hope you enjoyed the road trip. The weather here is mild, with some rain spells, as usual in winter.
  10. Tattoos!

    It would also hinder you from working in a bookshop, because you would scan one product and the customer would have to pay for your favourite book too.
  11. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    I watched Song to Song in the cinema, so I was able to follow the mood. I think I prefer the cinema to watch this type of slow, arthouse films, because I can't watch these movies at home in one sitting and there are other distractions. It's a good film; I didn't particularly enjoy it, but I felt satisfied in the end.
  12. Star Trek & Stargate (& other Sci-Fi)

    As I read Phillip K. Dick's book, I can't help but notice some images here resemble parts of its story that weren't in the first movie.
  13. Star Trek & Stargate (& other Sci-Fi)

    There's a full trailer for the new Blade Runner movie:
  14. What are you listening to?

    Late night for a bossa nova classic.
  15. Upgrade to New Version - Any Questions?

    Hi, I just want to say that I really like this new look, it's so clean and pleasant.
