I'm just glad they have been able to manage some good play in the Champions this year. I guess it's a give and take; bad Premiership year but knocking Real out more than makes up for it. And you're right, my initial post probably was a little bit angrier than intended (not to mention poorly written; note to self "don't talk on phone while posting") but in my opinion the newswire here (at least Culture-wise) has been in freefall as of late.

Dude thats fucking hilarious. Everyone on the movie was complaining about that guy. They said they had kept a look out the whole time, then just as they shoot up pops this guy from the bushes. Hilarious that you met him.

You haven't updated in a while. Hope the holidays treated you right.

Ciao Botta
Everything is allright?
To answer to your questions no,those are not real cigarettes and i onestly can say that i don't know either what half of those boxes contain and probably will never find out,at least untill next time in Tokyo because the boxes are too nice to eat what's inside.

About films......mmmm
we could talk for hours here,i spent the first three years when i was learning photography to play and experiment with films and processing,i did the black and white at home and i miss it.
Now i found out the film for me and i always use the same one Kodak Porta 160VC (a color negative film).
All the pictures i posted are shot with that film and a Mamiya RZ670.

If you would like to play around i would suggest the:

KODAK EKTACHROME P1600 EPH this is a slide that needs two stops of push processing and can give you very high contrast and great colrs,and the possibility to shoot in subdued light.
Keep in mind that this is actually a 400 iso so that when you process it,i would reccomend a pro lab,tell them to
push it 2 stops.

KODAK EKTACHROME INFRARED EIR this is an infrared slide film that works better with a red filter and shoul be loaded and unloaded in complete dark.
Try it and look the amazing colors you can have.

KODAK EKTACHROME 160T EPT this is a slide film too used to shoot in artificial light,try it in natural light to have more contrast and a cyan dominant.

For BLACK and WHITE i would suggest the:

FUJI NEOPAN 1600 and the FUJI DELTA 3200,this one is much better than the Kodak T-Max 3200 (less grain and contrast and more sharpness).
Then my favorite one that they don't do anymore,at least here in Italy is the KODAK TECHNICAL PAN,this is a negative b/w film without iso setting that you should set at 25 iso for better results and is unbelievably sharp and almost without any grain.

AS for what i use i always stick to the same one because i know exactly what i can do and tthey are:
KODAK PORTRA 160VC for color and
KODAK TRI-X 320or 400 for b/w.

When i'm in Japan and i feel like playing around i use Polaroids 'cause they are cheaper there and i can find many that i can't find here but that's another story that i'll tell you another time because i'm sick of pushing on these buttons here.

HAVE FUN and remember that the film doesn't do a good photographer...........ahahahahahahah but i think you already know this:

Ciao ciao

The Wind Will Carry Us
by Forough Farrokhzad

In my night, so brief, alas
The wind is about to meet the leaves.
My night so brief is filled with devastating anguish
Hark! Do you hear the whisper of the shadows?
There, in the night, something is happening
The moon is red and anxious.
And, clinging to this roof
That could collapse at any moment,
The...

photogabba:

Sei Italiano or you just like our culture?
Are you studiyng cinema at school or are you just a pervert movie nerd like me?
Maybe you are a photographer and this would explain why you have some style i choosing movies but you have a bad attitude about it.
Have you ever seen anything from Gabriele Salvatores ?

photogabba:

Ciao mezzabotte how are you doing?
Yes, the adjective i was looking for was pompous,you are kind of a smart guy,especially 'cause you know you are one.
Are you sure you are just 21?
You must be a weird one for liking mute movies from the 30's !
I agree with you saying that you don't need to go to school for learning about movies but doing it,i attended a photography school here in Milan for 3 years,i had the chance to confront with other people like me who shared the same interest and wanted to embrace the same path as i did.
If you "love cinema more than life itself" why don't you do something with it ?
Sometimes passion and perseverance are the only things you need to succeed.
