Hello everyone! Welcome back to my blog! Today I’m going to talk about what I’ve been up to in Madrid. I have been in Madrid since last Sunday but during the week I just chilled around the pool and read, so not very eventful. But today we decided to get out and go to the […]
Cambridge Analytica may have become synonymous with a scandal, but it is not entirely clear that anyone knows exactly what this scandal is. It is rather an association of toxic words: "Facebook", "data", "harvested", "armed", "Asset" and, in this country, very controversial, "Brexit". It's a media fire that has yet to go out, one year […]

Inspired by Frank at Dutch goes the Photo. The prompt: Hill The hills in San Francisco are daunting…which we discovered during a vacation in 1979. Cable cars became our preferred method of getting around the city. Why? They were efficient, fun and fast… As one hill led to another… …and another… It sure beat walking! […]
Personal Life Relationships and Family Courtney Love and Cobain met on January 12, 1990, in Portland’s Satyricon nightclub, when they both still led ardent underground rock bands.

This photo was shot somewhere between 2002 and 2008. Camera: Canon AE-1; film: Fujichrome Sensia 200. I like the fact that the roses are slightly blurred.
G. writes in his diary on monday 21 February 1944: Dry and cold, very cold. After usual chores to E. and on to Sev. Market, very dull. Saw a film “Claudia” quite good. The mare went to its Lingfield work to Mr. Green, but was returned back this evening having repeated an episode already witnessed […]
A small black and white TV This is a week of dreams – dreams that came to pass in my lifetime. I was 12 years of age and just home from boarding school. It was one of those rare school holidays when my parents were home from Africa and we were staying in our small […]
The long search for the ‘real’ Diane through this disturbing fantasy is, like much of The Return, a twisted reproduction of the logic of the original Twin Peaks. Diane does not appear in the original two series of Twin Peaks, except in the form of Agent Cooper’s tape recorder. One the many quirky Cooperisms repeated by fans and cosplayers is his frequent, chirpy commentaries on the unfolding enigma Twin Peaks, addressed always to his unseen secretary and headquarters. A recording of Cooper’s tapes to Diane was even released so that we too could have the fun of piecing together the Agent’s running commentary. (In a sense, this release had the reverse of effect of Jennifer Lynch’s novelisation pf Laura Pamler’s diary, which gave voice the the otherwise absent subject of Twin Peak’s central mystery.)
