HOT DUB TIME MACHINE (THE BEST PARTY EVER)

Lucky me! I was in the best party ever last night!!

I have been trying to get tickets for the Hot Dub during the last two years, but finally this Edinburgh Festival I was to determined to go, so I got my tickets quite early.

Hot Dub is the first time travelling dance floor that goes around world’s festival. The fact that the music starts on the 50s and goes all the way up until 2014 is just a great way to make people enjoy and dance some of the best hits for some decades.

The party is accompanied with videos which give the final touch to get you into a diversity of party mood’s: from rock, funky and jazz to pop, techno and hip-hop,  a great way of showing the history of music. In my opinion, the chosen songs from the 90s to nowadays could have been much better or it is simply that I prefer the oldies?


Definitely I strongly recommend everyone to go!

THE UGLY IS GONE

I like the feeling of not knowing what is going in the world for a period of time, this is part of the fact of being on holidays. However this includes missing some information like the death of one of the most loved and long-lived actors: Eli Wallach-I realised about his death a week after(which annoyed me a bit)


There are some reasons why he deserves to be on my blog:
  • He has been one of the best supporting actors ever.
  • He had more than 60 years of acting experience and played more than 160 characters.
  • He was not one of “The Magnificent Seven” but he was the fabulous villain: Calvera.
  • He was in one of my favourite westerns without knowing he was the character called “The Ugly” until the end of the shooting.
  • He was part of my favourite trilogy (The Godfather)-even if the third part is not good enough, he was worthy to be seen.
  • He was still working until not long ago- he was part of the "The Wolf of Wall Street" cast- amazing!!

I felt in love with his Ugly character and this scene will be always my favourite one:

PAOLO NUTINI

Paolo Nutini is one of these artists who keeps improving and improving! I discovered him in his second album “Sunny Side Up” – a fantastic 14 songs full of energy.  Then I listened his first album which I found it a bit cheesy; I like some songs but it is quite far from the quality of his second one. And now he just released his third album “Scream” which is (as I said before) getting better in quality. His latest album remains me of Ben Harper, another great musician.

When I saw him live he played covers of all of his old songs which I thanked him for that, I hate when I go to  concerts and the songs sounds the same than the album. The experience of seeing a concert just depends on how much the artist wants to give to his public, and Paolo Nutini gave loads!


As I said one of the best characteristic of Paolo Nutini is his love of doing covers but not only of his songs, he loves covering great songs, see some examples below:

NEBRASKA

It is quite hard to see a movie nowadays and think: 
”I love everything on it”

Well, I had this feeling when I watched Nebraska; and now after two weeks of analysing every single aspect on it, I still think is just perfect!  The characters are deep, funny and touching. The plot is created from a simple idea but offering lot of meaning behind it. The cinematography is well chosen in B&W to give more sense to the characters and to build a perfect atmosphere. The landscape of the film is just an important part of the movie as its cast. The dialogues are sharp; there are as many funny moments as emotive. The soundtrack is stunning- I recommend it to listen on its own.


Even the poster is just an amazing piece of art. It remains me a lot of Man Ray and his famous technique called solarization. From a simple profile we can see a clearly silhouette of the main character and his crazy hair which defines the trip you will be taken on if you see Nebraska.

It is difficult to finish a movie and be fulfilled with every single aspect of it. I admit I am quite demanding with movies but Nebraska did not disappoint me, not even a bit.

THE SOUL IS BACK

I am so happy to keep discovering new Spanish bands that are incredible good although they do not sound really Spanish; mainly because they sing in English! They are a mix of great soul with talented musicians and voices, just listen and think for yourselves.




Definitely the soul is back!
