Madonna

From few days ago I want to talk about Louise Veronica Ciccone, Madonna. Not because I’m abig fan of she of her music, I’m not. But it’s undenniable that she is an icon of music and culture and something good shw will do to stay till now on the scene.
Last summer I have the chance to see the amazing Confessions on a Dance Floor Tour and I surprised how amazing it is. Every song has a diferent custome art and idea and the edition was incredible, imposible o count how many cameras there where. The video you have up is from one of the songs Live to tell with the controversial and sometimes censured catolic curch. What I think about it? She do it purposely, show knows about the sentence taht say Speak about me, even though poorly and she use it. Really, if you have the change to watch this show on DVD, do it. Yes, I’ll see it on TV (canal +) but it’s avaiable too in DVD. And is remarkable how she adapts to the new trends incorporating break dance and reinventing fashions.
And the other day I had the chance too of watch another Madonna’s show, The Blond Ambition Tour (1990) inside the movie Truth or Dare (In bed with Madonna) directed by Alex Keshishian that shows the show and portrays the backstage trying to understand the woman behind the pop idol. So much recommendable. You can find some parts on YouTube as this, talking with the chorus and dancers on the bed or this doing something with a bottle.
Take care!

Maudits sonnants

Sometimes the city of Barcelona surprised you with thinks like this. The last Thursday 20 th. at the afternoon I was walking along Pl. Catalunya and I see some peopleand ringing bells, an stage with ads from Barcelona World Race and an amazin structure (photo). I was late so I don’t pay a lot of attention but later, at 20 h. I go back and see what that was.

It’s an spectacle of free entrance in order to the Fiesta del Mar y del Cielo de Barcelona called Maudits sonnants by Compagnie Transe Express. Drums, bells, fire and acrobatics with some kind of barroc style at 40 meters high. Nice coincidences that I was there in the right time, on the right place…

Here you have the spectacle website and a promotional video, enjoy!

La luz de la mañana

Marc Barrachina (Facto) y Oscar D’Aniello (Delafe) y Helena Miquel (Las flores azules) creates nice and specials songs between hip-hop and chillout with their special style. Next to their first album Facto Delafé y las Flores Azules vs El monstruo de las Ramblas and of take part in the Bigas Luna film soundtrack Yo soy la Juani, they edit their new album La luz de la mañana. Great, special, perfect for wake up, specially the songs of the video: Desde el este and La luz de la mañana (they sung in a catalan TV magazine called El Club from TV3). Too the first single, El indio and the last song of the album, Poquito a poco, so original with the thanks that you often read in the book that the album adds but it this case, sung by them. Just listen it, it’s a great choice.

Finally, just visit their Myspace!

Family Guy

Often and I don’t know exactly why, I hate what all the people arround me loves, and what’s worst, sometimes I never whatch that a lot. This is what happened with Family Guy, but I have to recognize that I was wrong and it’s a real delirious and fun show. You can see it in FOX and La Sexta, I don’t know the time exactly.

Here you have the website.
