Is this a joke? It sure looks like one. BTW, Alejandro Sanz is a Spanish citizen so why is he supporting a US presidential candidate? Also, why the US public doesn't support Hillary is beyond me. For me as a European she would be the only choice.

Lost Season Finale

Desmond David Hume and Penelope Widmore finally united. I have to admit that the S04E05 episode named "The Constant" where Des calls Penny from the freighter to her London house made my eyes wet and it well might be the best TV ever made.

Hermano Sol

Love this movie. Graham Faulkner as Francis of Assisi could make an atheist convert. A stunning performance but unfortunately also the only one from this amazingly talented guy. There will never be better Francesco, ever.


Only in Japan.

The New Indy

Today I've seen the new Indiana Jones movie. Overall, I wasn't very impressed, but at one point I thought it almost got the old charm back. When Indy and the Soviets fought over an alien coffin, Indy drove his jeep through the mountain of wooden boxes in some Nevada military warehouse. One of them cracked open and we could see the Ark of the Covenant for a second or two! Obviously, it was the same warehouse that we saw at the end of the first movie. Sweet.

To remember the 125th anniversary of Walter Gropius' birthday, the Google logo has changed for today:

I think it's quite cool, especially the "Monument to the March Dead" hint. Bravo!

Imagine a guy with three university diplomas and couple of pretty good papers in a musculoca bar, watching two of his friends making out, surrounded by shirtless teens making out, too. Sounds pretty cool, huh? But then I saw the famous man-in-black on a train today, dressed as sharp as always in a pair of narrow grey trousers, stylish black jacket and super cool black shoes. Strangely enough, I started to feel serene and conciliated.

The students at the Autonóma are protesting against Bolonia, an important project of synchronization of the Spanish university system with the rest of Europe. Even though the motive for the protests is not very clear to me, I tried to understand their reasonings, but they ruined it for me by destroying the RENFE station tonight. The walls covered with graffiti but more importantly, out of the ten ticket machines there was only one working in the morning, the rest being fixed by the RENFE employees. Do the protesters understand that it won't help their case?

... No Me Puedo Levantar, the name of a musical we went to see with Carlitos yesterday. A big success in Madrid, running for three continuous years with all performances being sold out. Therefore, I was expecting something extraordinary, something so spectacular that it would left me in awe. Well, maybe because I saw many other musicals, I found the storyline too "inspired" by RENT, the voices being a little weaker and sometimes lost in the music and the acting amateurish. On the other hand, I liked a lot the classic songs by Mecano (obviously), the inspired scenography and the atmosphere in the theatre. Big thanks to the birthday boy who let me to join him.
