So is already May. The month of warm and longer days, the month of final exams at school, the month of long evening aperitives outside. Also, the month of Eurovision Song Contest! I don’t know if you’re excited this year, but I’m damn excited about it and I can’t wait to see the performances because, well, I think Italy can possibly win this time! (sorry Finland, nice try!)
I may be biased (I am, definitely) but I seriously think that the song that won the national competition of Sanremo and will participate to Eurovision 2021 edition is going to kick…
Sometimes I use Medium to stay update on what is up in the world (it used to be Twitter for that regard, but it tends to slip into hatred toxicity sometimes). I follow many different authors and publications to never lose a good taste of the world around and to collect variegated opinions on hot topics.
And today I’ve found this manifesto.
Here you find the original article.
Is a point of differentiation made by the LGB Alliance, the subsect of the grand and ever-extending LGBTQIA+ community that stands for Lesbian, Gay and Bisex people, and is a point about…
If I had to pick ten people that left some impact in my life, probably Moby would appear on that list. I was fifteen when the notes of Natural Blues hit me for the first time.
“Oh Lordy, my trouble so hard”
There was something in the melody, the electronic set, the lyrics, that spoke to me on a profound level. It almost like the music was coming from a shared spiritual dimension we all have access to, but we refuse to.
It was the first time that I met Moby through his music. Later I would have found him…
I had a friend in College that looked exactly like Andrew Schulz. I swear, if only one wasn’t making me laugh all the time with his wit humour and the other wasn’t a NYC American with German origins, they could have been brothers or something. Weird, I know.
Everytime I see him and Akaash Singh on Flagrant I can’t help but think about my college years. Probably the resemblance to my long-time classmate or that “bro” kind of humour. Whatever it is, something in their mix brings me back to that years of unadultered freedom and reckless parties that I…
It’s been a week since I launched this new publication on Medium and is becoming already a great place to find and share ideas!
My original vision was to create a curated space on Medium that promotes intelligent content away from easy clickbaits. A place of discussion that promotes plurality and indie creators, and hey! I’m very honoured to have found such interesting writers and creators along the way!
If you have missed them, here some great articles this week:
Nyse Vicente is an amazing writer and one of the few friends I’ve found on Medium. I’m so happy to…
There was always the cigarette after. Camel light blue. Pueblo only sometimes.
Sex just before. We lay on the bed, exhausted. Cigarette after sex, I know is a cliché. She knows it, too. I think it was intentional, I think she likes to play the character of some personal script in her mind.
She inhales slowly and exhales a cloud of smoke.
I just stare at the ceiling. I never had a script in my life. I had always to improvise different roles and I’ve never felt to be a good actor. Sometimes I think that I am only playing…
I have fond memories of my time spent in Africa. The perfumes, the people the colors. But most importantly: the heat, the mosquitoes and the music. Oh, the music! Forget record labels and Spotify recommendations, this is an entire world on its own, made of independent artists and clandestine radio stations, an entire subculture of local celebrities that only a few privileged can ever taste. I’m a complete apocryphal in this world, but I do love the vibe.
Especially when I feel nostalgic, I often go back to these memories and inspirations that bring me to another dimension. …
