    Thank you very much. Please don't feel any need to answer me.

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good and for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. I wrote all of that from memory and you'll have to take my word for it
  3. I still haven't read the original book, sorry. I enjoyed the first episode, more focused on the period setting and the personal drama of the main characters. Let's see what comes after.
  4. What are you listening to?

    Nobody Does it Better - Carly Simon for "The Spy Who Loved Me"
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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."
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
