“Scream(ing) in the Summer”

Currently the first two seasons are available on Netflix, but after the special Halloween 2016, there is a third and final (rumours) season made of six episodes.
When?????

We are still waiting

The horrortumblr_n141rcaide1sl1yruo1_500has never been my favourite kind, but there has been a Summer during my teenage years when a series of such films stepped out and so I have seen them all, becoming almost a fan.

Rarely these stories make me really scared, insted their soundtracks leave  me with that sense of subdued anguish , but to be honest a few scenes let me also with sleepless nights.

Although not an expert I know the main rule:

 

scream-mtv-season-2-announce1so when I heard that they would have created a TV series from a horror saga I was very much intrigued. I find it already difficult to make the film sequel, but even a TV show? How?

Criticism and vaguely sceptical – for the cast of teenagers, for the genre, for the usual bad guy with the mask -, I arranged an energetic bowl of popcorn *, a nice glass of…

“Bloody Toast”

Okay, something’s wrong with me; why all the most cruel and bloody series make me hungry ????? !!!!

I wonder if there is some psychiatrists among you that wants to come along with the analysis …

Meanwhile, I arrange a Bloody Mary * inclusive with toast-another-yearpinzimonio, I take a seat on a comfortable chair in the room and I go to end my adventure with True Blood.

Needless to say, the cocktail colour goes well with the bloody scenes of this show from the bright flag and bold dialogues. And I must not be alone in having to deal with the hunger that southern cuisine in the States generates becose it even inspired a book titled True Blood: Eats, Drinks and Bites from Bon Temps…

“Vodka, Ravioli, Will And Grace”

It might be because of the replication on Paramount Channel or because ofthe reunion the cast made a few days ago about the presidential debate, it might be because it remains one of my favourite shows, despite the years and the ending a bit sad … I don’t know but I felt the need to review Will & Grace, AGAIN

It might be because of the replication on Paramount Channel or because ofthe reunion the cast made a few days ago about the presidential debate, it might be because it remains one of my favourite shows, despite the years and the ending a bit sad … I don’t know but I felt the  need to reviewWill & Grace, the sitcom transmit on the screens of the NBC from 1998 to May 2006 that was the first so openly speaking about homosexuality. A theme that still seems ablaze, despite the past ten years from the closing of the show. I have always been shocked about homophobia, I just can not understand it and I find it ridiculous and inappropriate. Love is love. It’s complicated, necessary, weird, silly, but it is love.

“Muffin, Tequila And Anatomy”

“After all this time…”

Risultati immagini per grey's anatomy gif

 

I have always swanked of not having catastrophic addictions: I do not smoke, I do not hazard, I drink moderately. For a while I got to eat a lot of the really impressive goleador[1] fruit, but I stopped.

The only real addiction that I have always had is the one for books. No matter how many I have waiting in the library or on the bedside table, if I see one (or more) that catches my attention, I have to take it!
But it’s not a bad addiction, indeed, it endorsed me to grow, to be able to compare myself, to learn a great deal and to vary the genres, over the years I realized that we have to read a bit of everything from classics to children’s books, from thrillers to romance.

So I felt immune and safe.

Then Grey’s Anatomy, the TV medical series created by Shonda Rhimes arrived.

“Knock – Knock : Murder or Treat?”

provide yourself with the S’mores Lollipop * and other mouth-watering treats, with a beautiful face mask (one of those that…. if you open the door with that cucumber smeared on your face you are more scarying than if you wore a full Halloween costume), and make sure that there is still a daylight, or someone in your home that can protect you from the psychological anxiety that this show generates.

Halloween has always been one of my favourite celebrations!

I know, I know, is not an Italian custom. giphy8So what? I celebrate it anyway. It will be for my penchant for the theatre but the idea of dressing up and walk around with a different face for a night in which everything-can-happen, it’s something I really like!

I’m glad that in recent years it is also spreading here and that some children come knocking for the traditional “trick or treat?”; It will not be a little make-up and fun to make us lose our cultural identity !!
What I hope is not going to be imported along with the festivities and costumes by creatures of the night, it is the incredible spear in murders that take place on the night of October 31.
I don’t think it’s the party itself to blame, whilst the possibility for murderers to blend…

“Tuna Tartare, White Wine & Revenge”

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

Thesea sparkling wave crests breaking on the rocks , the breeze that dangles the swings , children chasing each other with bucket and spade , the iodine smell on the warm skin ,
the happy lull of lazy rest of the summer , are the ideal setting for a terrace at sunset , a glass ofGewurztraminer , and a delicious fresh tuna tartare * , to be tasted on a comfortable wicket sofa on a terrace at sunset.
giphy7It would be the perfect scenery for a romantic evening , with a few citronella candles to avoid being eaten by tigers mosquitoes , but if you were to be the single case-hardened ( for yours or others choice) , then I have a fantastic alternative for you !
Perhaps because of the luxurious holiday location in the Hamptons , the TV series “Revenge” has always made me…

Tomorrow!!!!

Winter is coming.

Ok , not quite, we’re just in July, but I like to be prepared .
And since , unlike the Summer, Winter is very long , it is better to care for themselves with all 6 ( for now, but is supposed to be 8 ) seasons of Game of Thrones, a nice wool blanket andlovely warm old-fashioned dish* , refill the glass and get ready for a long and exciting battle for power fought with secrets , conspiracies , seduction and wine, a lot, a lot , and a lot more, wine !

mtm5mjkwotmymdk1nzu1nje11The TV series is a result of the transposition of the fantasy saga by George RR Martin , but from the fifth season it is standing apart so much that it can now be regarded as an autonomous work. Both versions are still work in progress , but for the books’…

“Hannibal, Crusted Fillet And Red Wine”

giphy2Winter,strictly . Late afternoon , when the sky is still not entirely cloaked in blacks clouds but still retains some shade of blue, and a few more overbearing stars come out .

In this atmosphere , make sure you locked the door and windows ( or on first draft which makes it slam you will leave your heart on the floor ) , and open a bottle of a good red winegiphy3 not a cardboard swiped at the supermarket , a really good one, not too sweet , I recommend theBarolowine from Piedmont: pronounced garnet colour red, at times ruby and presenting orange hues with the progress of aging ; its aroma is intense , complex and very persistent.

Pour yourself a generous glass ( not plastic ! ) and , after having prepared a delicious beef tenderloin crusted * tumblr_inline_nfxeddi3rd1svk9zc, sit on a soft…
