Memórias e resenha de um NOS Primavera Sound 2017.

O Coprófago

Mais um ano volvido, e mais uma obrigatória peregrinação ao Parque da Cidade, em Junho, para o ver transformado em recinto de um dos mais relevantes festivais da Europa; transforma-se o Parque, e o Porto também, para destino de reencontros e novos conhecimentos, descoberta e _______. O festival contou a sua sexta edição, um número já respeitável e que obriga à retrospectiva de anos anteriores. Aqui está: fomos imensamente felizes, no passado. Também o fomos, este ano.

Como habitual, o alinhamento para o irmão catalão, donde provêm todos os artistas com destino ao Porto, deixou-nos a esperança de que pudéssemos receber junto de nós nomes que nunca por cá passaram, e outros que justificavam um regresso: não houve Arcade Fire, Annette Peacock, os Zombies, a própria Solange e Frank Ocean – este, nem em Barcelona apareceu -, mas tivemos Flying Lotus, na ressaca do extraordinário You’re Dead!; Aphex Twin

(Extra)ordinárias Pelo Arco-Íris

esQrever

Hoje é dia de dar voz à Ana Domingos, uma aliada do dia-a-dia e uma amiga deste espaço. Tudo começou com uma pequena batalha no Facebook acerca do símbolo do arco-íris agora disponível como reacção em celebração do Mês do Orgulho LGBT. Há quem ache invasivo e desnecessário. A Ana achou outra coisa:

Com a idade passei a ser mais selectiva nas guerras que travo. No entanto passei a não aceitar e calar-me perante barbaridades que leio e oiço todos os dias. Sim, que nem aos dias santos os meus olhos têm folga.Sempre que alguém começa uma frase com “eu isto e aquilo, maaaassss…” é sinal que vem bujarda.

Vamos lá ver: o pequeno ícone de reacção com a bandeira do arco-íris que o Facebook lançou está muito bem feito. Se tens interesse no ícone, gostas de uma página e tens acesso ao mesmo. Se não tens…

Scotland – Friday: The Paddle Steamer

aspiblog

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to another installment in my series about my holiday in Scotland. The steamer has been mentioned/ shown in various previous posts (Setting the Scene,The Museum of All Shells and Friday Overview) but this one is dedicated to it. There are a few other pictures as well.

THE STEAMER

Alighting from my parents camper van in Kyle of Lochalsh I was just too late to get the whole steamer in shot, but I did get this picture:

Steamer2I had not expected to see it again, not knowing the route it would be taking, but that evening it passed by Ferry Cottage, all be it on the opposite side of Loch Alsh, so I was able to get plenty more pictures of it.

Tory ‘patriotism’ means blind applause for idiocy. Who knew? #Brexit

The SKWAWKBOX

Quite a telling – and scary – moment as Andrea Leadsom let slip a glimpse of the Tory vision of ‘patriotism’ during a Newsnight interview:

According to Ms L, patriotism means unquestioning support for a clearly floundering and incompetent government while they screw up our relations with 27 neighbouring countries.

Not even ‘my country, right or wrong’.

‘My Tories right or wrong’.

The Tories confuse themselves and their good with the country and our good – or more accurately, they want us to.

Ground beef, tomato, potato & bell pepper casserole

Recipes by chefkreso

I can feel the summer in the air, the hot nights when you just can’t get any sleep, the days when you’d rather be inside the house with the AC turned on. We in Croatia spend our summers at the seaside, where most of us have our vacation homes. For the last five or six years I’ve been going to this beautiful small island of Vir. A place where you can count the people with your hand during the winter, and also a place where you can’t find a spot at the beach during the summer. It’s an island with so many hidden gems under the clear blue sky, surrounded with crystal clear sea.

Nothing is better than having a bike to explore the island and all of its natural beauty. Since it’s not a large island anyone can do so, and you won’t be disappointed. Last summer me and my…
