Political compass


..i didn't know that political leanings can be represented on to a 2-dimension graph. This is what Political compass does, based on a number of simple questions. Well, I tried, and it turned out that I'm pretty far from the positions of most of the possible candidates for US elections. And I also found it interesting that politicians are not much sparse, but tend to gather on a diagonal line: do we want to have a look at the first eigenvector for this?
Anyway, if you want to give it a go, just click on the image...

Tear the curtain down...

It's actually not the end, but quite an event...
Schengen zone now adds some 9 countries from the eastern Europe. This wounded and frail grampa has still something to say to the world... ;)

Lupercale

I've always been one of the angry romans yielling at the absence of a decent subway, and putting the blame on the bureaucrap and stuff like that.




But then, when it happens that if you start digging, you may find this, well, ehhrrr, next time I'll count to ten, and I'll just keep walking.

Nils Liedholm (1922-2007)


I will never forget this very yellow and red anorak being pulled everywhere by the fans, my first scudetto, it was May 8, 1983.

Rome is blushing...


... and, to be honest, the effect is not that bad...
I definitely like this neo-futurist action, moreover since marbles can't be put in danger by aniline...
Not sure if there's another FTM out there in 2007, but anyway, it was a nice try...

White Light

StarsailorWhite Light

There's a white light that carries me home
Helps me focus when I am alone
Keeps on teaching me how to be loved
And to love
And to love

Onwards to forever
Our minds belong together

She's the good light that carries me on
Helps me focus on where I've gone wrong
Now you've reached me
Its time to forgive and forget
And forget

Onwards to forever
Our minds belong together
Onwards to forever
Our minds belong together
...
Onwards to forever
Our minds belong together
Onwards to forever
Our minds belong together
...
Won't you help my soul to grow?
To heal, its all that I know

Diaframma

Va figlio, va...
Hai scalato montagne
di roccia dura fino al mare
e moltitudini di guai,
l'hai fatto per noia
e a te bastava vivere,
va figlio, va...
La mia mano lo sai
era pronta per sorreggerti ovunque
e per seguirti
se solo tu l'avessi voluto
ma tutto questo adesso
conta poco piu' di niente,
va figlio, va...

Va figlia, va,
inconfutabile prova dell'esistenza di dio
per dormire hai scelto
stazioni e squats
e calore di persone lontane
che mai ho conosciuto
e mai conoscero'.
La tua stanza nell'ombra
vive i ricordi piu' dolci
di cartoline colorate
che penso tanto non leggerai,
ma tutto questo adesso
conta poco piu' di niente
va figlia, va...

Questa sera in veranda
insieme con vostra madre
sto a pensare che in fondo
non mi e' riuscito mai
nel mio orgoglio a spianare
una strada che portasse dritto
portasse a voi.
Nel mio orgoglio feroce
una strada di luce
che sapesse dove il cuore conduce
per confonderlo con il mio,
ma stasera basta solo una cosa
che sappiate che piu' forte vi amo
e vi amero'.
Ma stasera basta solo una cosa
che sappiate che piu' forte vi amo
e vi amero'.

Coral beach peacemonger...

Winning a Nobel Prize?
Just not enough, if employees of a 5-star hotel are able to
mistake you for a street vendor...
