The Genius of El Guaje

The Genius of El Guaje

The modest mining village of Tuilla was just like any other in Spain when it came it football: dozens of kids out on the streets every single day. They’d be chasing a ball, and a dream to play for La Roja, from dusk till the time their mothers would drag them home. David Villa Sánchez was…

Football and constancy: a tale.

Football and constancy: a tale.

The waves rose and settled. The sweet scent of air, accompanied by the vibrant, setting sun– it seemed like a scintillating shot from of a movie.

Après nous avoir tristement laissé pour aller jouer au Japon, voici un petit article contant comment Iniesta était un joueur de gros calibre, l’un des meilleurs dans l’histoire du Barça.

The Second Fiddle

The Second Fiddle

Leonard Bernstein, the famed orchestra conductor, was once asked about the most difficult instrument there is to play.

Winding back the clock

It was late into the night and I was watching this video essay by Dan Golding titled The Meaning in the Music: Hans Zimmer and Time on YouTube and it had me captivated. In the video, the narrator quotes Michel Chion’s “synchronised sound made cinema an art of time” critique and goes on to argue…
