Keith Flint: Prodigy vocalist dies aged 49

Keith Flint, vocalist with the Prodigy, has died at the age of 49. He was found at his home in Essex on Monday. The Prodigy released a statement confirming the news, saying: “It is with deepest shock and sadness that we can confirm the death of our brother and best friend Keith Flint. A true pioneer, innovator and legend. He will be forever missed. We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.” Liam Howlett, who formed the group in 1990, wrote on Instagram: “I can’t believe I’m saying this but our brother Keith took his own life […]

Connecting the dots ~ Balance of a year

✓ 1st Book (in the correction phase, but here we are) ✓ 2nd Degree (in Humanities, the first was Technical) ✓ 1st scientific article (a peer-reviewed one) ✓ 1st Course in Tor Vergata University. × Definitive breach with my ex girlfriend. An intense year. No doubt. In search of a pattern “There are things that don’t look connected, but at some point you can connect them and everything makes sense”, says Cheryl in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (the remake is not a great movie but contains several good insights). Sometimes I put together some elements to find a […]

The day the new computer went up (2nd time)

This morning I woke up early because of the delivery of my new pc, scheduled by courier between 8.00am and 14.00pm. This is the 2nd time this pc is delivered to me, since the first time, at the end of April,  was severely bent in the middle, and the computer was returned to the store to be changed. The merchant ByTecno, thought, was really correct and immediately proceeded to change it on my report basis. Now the baby is in the house! I’ve to install some good software… It’s a HP Envy 15, with a Full HD screen of 15,6″ […]

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Final Secret

I’ve read with the deepest sadness about the cold death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, that I loved in his severe actorship’s ability to render the suffering of men throughout different movies. Here’s a memory article that I found really special and toughtful about the actor, from the Esquire magazine by the editor Tom Junod. Just a note. One of the best films I’ve ever seen is Before the devil knows you’re dead, (2007), where the filmmaker, the amazing Sidney Lumet, has directed his last film (and last for Hoffman too): the exceptional character of the protagonist (the other one is […]

Crimen sollicitationis and the BBC

Due to the category in which put me Falso Idillio (“weaver”), I’ve to insert a post of a sort of balance, so I put my complete adhesion to the public homily of Benedict XVI. Also for the Family Day organized by italian syndacilist Savino Pezzotta, I’ve thoughts of appreciation. If I could, I would have gone too to the Family Day in Rome. The founding, useful, more important faith in the family like society nucleus, of every religious or civil ordering that is, a brick of the irrenounceable human society at in these years “under attack” from economics, politic, social […]

Crimen sollicitationis and the BBC garbage

Due to the category in which put me the always inarrivabile Falso Idillio, I must insert a post that they balance my total adhesion to the public omelies of Benedict XVI and to the Family Day. For the second one I don’t have any rethinking. If I could, I would have gone too to the Family Day in Rome. The founding, useful, more important creed in the natural family like thing, and in my case also sacred and saint, of every religious or civil ordering that is, a mattone of the irrenounceable human society at this point under attack from […]

Bad period landing down

Sometimes things seem to decide to go worst all together. There must be a logical meaning in this correlation that it’s escapeing. But I’m not sure, afterwards, that there’s a logical explanations at all. (remember that “It’s that feeling you have had all your life. That feeling that something was wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.”) It seems it’ll be a fantastic Christmas. And some changes in the short period too (uhm). In the long period, oh well, you now what that famous economist […]

Rome (summer)

Here in Rome there’s a hot weather…but the wind is present and temperature is fine. In other words, even if I must remain in the city, i don’t see the terrible need to go elsewhere. Fortunately, this summer is so. But this is the first summer i pass with my mother lonely after my father gone, so I’m a bit sad (also w/out ‘a bit’) In the last part of August, we will go to S.Giovanni Rotondo (the city of Padre Pio) where we’ve home. I will remain there until 2 september, when my cousin, Laura, marries. The last time […]
