Ainhoa

¿Do you want to be imperfect?

Imperfecta it’s the new album of Ainhoa, who was the winner of the second edition of Operacion Triunfo. She was not my favourite singer of the programme but with this iniciative, she goes up on my list. The new it’s that she offered for free download her new album before been on the stores. Something that a lot of musicians do but I think that neverin Spain.

Is a good thing because I am tired of hearing (from SGAE-friendlys) that the Internet appears to be the apocalypse of the music and culture. Nothing more unreal, now I listen much more music than ever, what happens is that they don’t want to resign to the money they make with the record sales, that’s the truth.

You can download the album on her website and in Atrapalo.com
(just have to sing up on it).

Thanks to Ainhoa for the iniciative and hear the album, it’s great!

NO SENSE, an stop-motion short film

NO SENSE (sin sentido)
This is an stop-motion short film that I did for Christmas and edite this days. How I couldn’t create a coherent story, I use all my old toys and did waht my mind dictates. That’s the result…
Music:
Flying, by the Secret Machines
from the soundtrack of “Across the universe”

Across the Universe

Is there anybody going to listen to my story…

All about the girl who came to stay?
She’s the kind of girl you want so much
It makes you sorry, Still you don’t regret a single day.

Synopsis

A love story set against the backdrop of the 1960s amid the turbulent years of anti-war protest, mind exploration and rock ‘n roll, from the dockyards of Liverpool to the creative psychedelia of Greenwich Village, from the riot-torn streets of Detroit to the killing fields of Vietnam.

Star-crossed lovers, Jude (Jim Sturgess) and Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood), along with a small group of friends and musicians, are swept up into the emerging anti-war and counterculture movements, with “Dr. Robert” (Bono) and “Mr. Kite” (Eddie Izzard) as their guides. Tumultuous forces outside their control ultimately tear the young lovers apart, forcing Jude and Lucy – against all odds – to find their own way back to each other.

Charles Chaplin

Chaplin in pictures, in CaixaFòrum Barcelona
Until the 27/04/2008
Free entrance

Yesterday afternoon I finally went to this exposition on the CaixaFòrum. The greatest exposition about Chaplin never seen on Spain, with pictures, movies, draws, activities for kids… I know about it when I read a biography on a news paper and discovered that Chaplin’s life is so interesting, so, I reccomend you to go, furthermore, it’s free.

To see some of the greatest moments that Chaplins brought to the cinema, here you have a clip from Modern Times, another clip of the famouse dance with the globe on The Great dictator and finally, the last scene of this movie, an speech that I never seen and it’s really moving.

Really… a genius!
