2016_03_25-01 Easter Armani 4

The Italian designer Giorgio Armani has agreed to stop using fur for all his products following years of lobbying by animal rights activists. Armani, 81, said in a statement on Tuesday that new technologies “render the use of cruel practices unnecessary as regards animals” and that the decision reflected his luxury group’s attention to “the critical issues of protecting and caring for the environment and animals” [The Guardian, March 22, 2016]

2015_10_30-10 Gonsalves“A childhood of daydreaming and drawing has evolved into a career of making paintings that are primarily a celebration of imagination. Along the way I took a detour into the world of Architecture, but after an enthusiastic response to my paintings at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition in 1990, I began painting full time. Huckleberry Fine Art, in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area took the success of my work to a new level, and began publishing limited edition reproductions of it. Three children’s books have been created using my paintings: Imagine a Night, Imagine a Day and Imagine a Place. Master of Illusion is the name of the calendar series that contains my artwork, now in its sixth year.” – [from the Facebook page of Robert “Rob” Gonsalves]


Robert “Rob” Gonsalves (born in 1959) is a Canadian painter of magic realism (surrealism). He produces original works, limited edition prints and illustrations for his own books.

Salvate il marziano Damon.

Matt, ma quanto ci costi.

2015_10_20-02 The Martian

“Salvate il soldato Ryan” (Saving Private Ryan, Steven Spielberg – 1998), budget: 70 milioni $; “Interstellar” (Christopher Nolan, 2014), 165 milioni $; “The Martian” (Ridley Scott), 109 milioni $. Per non parlare della trilogia “Bourne”, con “The Bourne Identity” (2002), 60 milioni $; “The Bourne Supremacy” (2004), 75 milioni $ e “The Bourne Ultimatum” (2007), 110 milioni $. Fanno già 589 milioni di dollari spesi per recuperare Matt Damon (in realtà nella serie Bourne con scopi poco caritatevoli). Un po’ tanti, vero? Ma questi film ne hanno già incassati 2,4 miliardi $ (quattro volte tanto), stando alle cifre attuali, con il blockbuster tratto da “L’uomo di Marte” di Andy Weir di fatto appena uscito nelle sale. Insomma, pare che il “giochino” «Andiamo a riprendere Matt.» funzioni, e alla grande.


Ho visto in rapida sequenza sia “Interstellar” che “The Martian”, e ho una simpatia d’impeto per il secondo (2 ore 1/2 volate via senza accorgersene) anche se il primo ha più spessore concettuale e lascia in eredità delle riflessioni filosofiche che lo avvicinano all’inarrivabile “2001: Odissea nello Spazio” (Stanley Kubrick, 1968!). Ma per gli amanti della tecnologia, Matt Damon nella versione MacGyver dello spazio è un vero spasso. 🙂
