Rock and Pride


Hey guys! I'm sorry it took me such a long time to write another post, but I have been quite busy. Not VERY busy, because I'm still on holiday (yes, a three-month holiday...I'm feeling some envy around now that I said it...^.^) from school. However, I did start working already...the work is fine: I was expecting something better actually, but, you know, "you can't always get what you want"...we always have to learn from the Rolling Stones, don't we? Speaking of them, yesterday there was their concert here in Rio de Janeiro. It was quite something actually: have a look at the pictures! It's quite a happy moment for rock fans in Brazil: Pearl Jame came in December, The Rolling Stones now, the U2 next week, the Oasis next month...I only wish I had the money and the time to see all of them! I was quite sure to go to the U2 concert, but sadly I had to give it up because of the tickets: it was SO hard finding them!
These days I was wondering: what can I write in my next post? Can I write about manga? about anime? about my readings? about movies? about music? about sitcoms? about holidays? about carnival? about the gym?
Well, I finally decided: i'm gonna talk about the past, about reading and about movies. And all of this in little space 'cause I know nobody has plenty of time to read my huge posts any more!
When I was young (oh, my God, I'm getting so old!), in my 15s, my teacher (one of the best I've ever had), Tiziana Bonamico, gave us a book to read: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I simply loved the book, I loved the way jane Austen wrote, I loved the characters... Pride and prejudice was my first Jane Austen, and my favorite too!
Now the
movie was released, with the beautiful Keira Knightley and the handsome Matthew Macfadyen...and I really LOVED it! I admit the effects are not the same as the ones I had when I read the book (gosh! does AGE play any influence on this?)...but the movie is very sweet! Besides, D'Arcy is way more good-looking than the one I imagined and this, of course, can't hurt!
Ok, other suggestions for the cinema? Well, yesterday I saw Matchpoint, last Woody Allen's success, and I strongly recommend it. I also recommend "The secrets of Brokeback Mountain" and today I'm gonna see "Good night, good luck".
