It's been some time since I last wrote here. It's a new year and a new world, filled with new possibilities. I don't know why I haven't written here though. Whenever I had some spare time on my hands I chose to do something else, not write.
Hello, readers! As Summer ends so does the time we spend outside in nothing but shorts and t-shirts. Soon we'll be wearing scarfs around our necks and hats on our heads. Also, as winter approaches days will get shorter and night will eventually reign supreme. This means more time to binge-watch your favorite shows and movies or discover new ones, something I'd like to help with.
There's something fucking liberating about summer as a season.
It may be the scorching sun or the raging storms, the crowded trains or the late nights out, the gusts of wind or the flourishing plant life. Maybe it's all of the above or maybe it's none of the things I just listed.
Spring or Early Summer as I'd call it (due to the recent chaotic weather patterns appearing this side of the world) is here. A season of rebirth characterized by the blossoming of flowers, the return of little critters accompanied by various animals, warmer days, earlier sunrises and way more hipsters on the streets.
Chicken with Plums (originally Poulet aux prunes in French) is a brilliant motion-picture (released in 2012 on the big screen) born from the minds Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud illustrating the life of a violinist by the name of Nasser-Ali (played by Mathieu Amalric) as he tells the story of his life: the dreadful present intertwined with his bitter past and later his grim future.
