En Twitter uno encuentra de todo. La cuenta de un coleccionista de calendarios de bolsillo, @Calendofilia recoge obras como la de ahí arriba. También guarda calendarios de fechas señaladas, calendarios extranjeros y algunos están ligados a la infancia de muchos de nosotros. Hoy casi nadie lleva calendarios de bolsillo porque los teléfonos móviles disponen de una aplicación con agenda y calendario. Yo sigo queriendo calendarios de papel. Entre otros calendarios, hojeo el santoral en un taco del Corazón de Jesús.

Dejo aquí un post de @Calendofilia:

camera phone, 2000

“In 2000, camera phones officially became commercially available. While a number of big electronics companies began rolling out their own versions, Sharp’s J-SH04 was the first to the market. With a CCD sensor, the phone let users take images on the go and had a “Sha Mail” infrastructure, also known today as MMS” (Entrepreneur.com)

Pedro González Alonso, Berlín en “La Casa de Papel”

De la serie española de televisión “La Casa de Papel” siento especial predilección por este personaje que se hace llamar Berlín en la banda de atracadores. En la historia, Berlín es el hermano del líder. Me gusta sobre todo por su aire intrigante y su carácter apasionado.

La Casa de Papel: Así es cómo Berlín vuelve de entre los muertos

LA VANGUARDIA.-REDACCIÓN, BARCELONA 19/07/2019
“Entre los fallecidos en el atraco a la Fábrica de la Moneda y Timbre se encontraba Berlín. El que se presentaba como el mayor psicópata de la banda del Profesor y como un inquietante seductor durante el secuestro y robo también se convirtió en uno de los personajes más queridos. Era uno de esos malos seductores con la ayuda del actor Pedro Alonso. Y, claro, los espectadores nos quedamos de piedra cuando las primeras promos de Netflix mostraban que Alonso volvía en la tercera parte de La casa de papel.

Berlín, que se llamaba Andrés de Fonollosa, también tiene sentido que fascinase al público. Tenía una enfermedad terminal y, a sabiendas que le quedaba poco tiempo, en los últimos momentos del atraco se sacrificó por el bien de la banda. Permitió que salieran del edificio vivos y con el botín. Y tiene una explicación que haya vuelto: no es que haya resucitado sino que la tercera parte de La casa de papel tiene flashbacks al pasado.”

Klinkenborg´s pocket book

KLINKENBORG, Verlyn. Several short sentences about writing.

New York: Vintage Books, 2012

This book I have read means a lot to me as regards to writing style. Reading those 204 pages helped me think, -re-think, in fact-the way I make sentences. The small pocket book deals with the creation of sentences.

The page numbering avoids writing odd page numbers. Don’t ask me why but I found that original, strange. The author only had to mark even pages.

 

1/”Short sentences aren’t hard to make” (page 4)

2/”The voices of former teachers, usually uttering rules.

Rules like, “Don’t begin sentences with ‘and’.”

(It’s okay. You can begin sentences with “and”.) * (page 6)

3/” See which words the sentence can live without” (page 12)

4/”It’s your business to know the names of things” (page 43)

5/ “A cliché is dead matter” ** (page 45)

6/”Read until your ear detects a problem” (page 53)

7/”Never stop reading” (page 149)

Desert Island Discs

4 April 2020

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

Excerpt

from

BBC Radio 4

Desert Island Discs program

The History of Desert Island Discs
“Late one evening in 1941, freelance broadcaster Roy Plomley was at his home and already in his pyjamas, when an idea came to him. He sat down and wrote immediately to the BBC. That letter reached the in-tray of the BBC’s Head of Popular Record Programmes, Leslie Perowne. The pitch was successful and a broadcasting institution was born.

That first Desert Island Discs was recorded in the BBC’s bomb-damaged Maida Vale studio on 27th January 1942 and aired in the Forces Programme at 8pm two days later. It was introduced to the listening public as “a programme in which a well-known person is asked the question, if you were to be cast away alone on a desert island, which eight gramophone records would you choose to have with you, assuming of course, that you had a gramophone and an inexhaustible supply of needles”.

Plomley’s first castaway was the popular Viennese comedian, actor and musician, Vic Oliver. The first piece of music chosen by Vic Oliver, and therefore by any castaway, was Chopin’s Étude No.12 in C minor played by pianist Alfred Cortot. During these war years, every BBC Radio show was scripted and Plomley and his guests would ‘read’ their conversations. On 7th May 1942 Roy Plomley made his first appearance as a castaway when the programme was presented by Leslie Perowne.

The programme came off air in 1946 returning to the Home Service in 1951. On 16th September that year, the choice of luxury was introduced when garlic was chosen by the actress Sally Ann Howes. The choice of book made its first appearance on 9th October 1951 when actor and director Henry Kendall chose Who’s Who in the Theatre. According to Roy Plomley’s book, Desert Island Lists, in addition to the volume of Shakespeare, the castaways would be given a copy of the Bible, which was assumed to have been deposited there by The Gideon Society.

In September 1967, Desert Island Discs transferred to the newly created Radio 4 service. Roy Plomley continued to present the programme until his death, from pleurisy, in May 1985. He was 71. He was replaced by Michael Parkinson who dispensed with the ritual of the pre-recording lunch at Plomley’s club, the Garrick, and insisted that the music was played to the guests during the recording rather than edited in afterwards. Parkinson presented the last of his 96 programmes on 13th March 1988, when his guest was the athlete Brendan Foster.”

The Queen looks at you with her impala eyes

31 March 2020

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

Dominique Jackson is probably the most elegant queen in America. When you watch her walking in the street or doing the catwalk in the ball room in “Pose” you’d better surrender to her charm, say nothing and admire her womanhood.

Yesterday, Ms Jackson- Elektra Abundance– made me understand the lyrics of “Private dancer” as she was doing her job in a peep show.

Private Dancer
Tina Turner

All the men come in these places
And the men are all the same
You don’t look at their faces
And you don’t ask their names
You don’t think of them as human
You don’t think of them at all
You keep your mind on the money
Keeping your eyes on the wall

I’m your private dancer, a dancer for money
I’ll do what you want me to do
I’m your private dancer, a dancer for money
And any old music will do

I want to make a million dollars
I want to live out by the sea
Have a husband and some children
Yeah, I guess I want a family

All the men come in these places
And the men are all the same
You don’t look at their faces
And you don’t ask their names
I’m your private dancer, a dancer for money
I’ll do what you want me to do
I’m your private dancer, a dancer for money
And any old…
