Marcelino Pan Y Vino

 marcelino001

Pablito Calvo

 played the role of Marcelino in the screen adaptation of “The Miracle of MarcelinobyJose Ma. Sanchez Silva.

This is the story of a baby who was found in front of the gates of a monastery. The monks reared him up after nobody in town would like to accept him as an orphan.

When he was six years old, his curiosity led him to the attic to see the Crucified Christ. Later on Marcelino brought this man on the cross some food and wine which were of course pilfered from the monastery kitchen.

To make the story short, the man on the cross granted Marcelino’s wish which was to see his mother. And right from the very eyes of the eavesdropping monks, the man on the cross sent Marcelino to heaven.

The Irishman

The Irishman.mp4

 

From Netflix comes this 3 1/2 hour movie

about an Irishman

who have more friends who are Italian

than Irish.

Curiously, this is one Irishman

who does not know how to pray.

This is a disappointment for me as regards Scorsese.

Only the first portion of the movie

have the pick-and-shoot rubouts

which is the trademark of a Scorsese movie.

More than half the movie is a drag.

It dramatizes the life of Jimmy Hoffa

instead of relating the tale of the the Irishman.

It probably aims to reveal the mystery of Hoffa’s disappearance.

if you ask me,

Hoffa did not disappear that way.

I would guess that his body was doused with cement

in a steel drum and dumped in the sea.

OR:

it was mixed with cement to form part of cornerstone

of some large building under construction.

This would be a fitting tribute

to his astounding leadership.

Anyway,

try to download the movie first

then watch it separately from any large screen.

This should minimize the active server time.

Endgame Battle

 

The Avengers movie us about 3 hours long.

But I am sure that you are only interested

in the battle.

Denis Matsuev (by very popular requests)

 

Rachmaninoff Piano Concert0 No. 2

Playing Rachmaninoff in St Petersburg is Dennis Matsuev.

The first amazing item I noticed in him was his fingers.

It is traditional for concert pianists to have noticeably long fingers

to enable them to span the distance between

two ivory keys with ease.

Matsuev  have  short and stubby fingers

which may have been responsible for his inability

to sustain notes a trifle longer.

As a result, some passages which require romantic expressions

turn out to be a bit hurried

as if whispering sweet nothings to the object of romance

become hurried and spiritless enterprise.

This catastrophe is well displayed in the second movement.

In composition, the second movement

is where the conversation between the audience and the pianist is initiated.

When started, the pianist must hold the audience in rapture towards

the third movement, or the recapitulation.

Denis missed this cue but preferred instead

to wow his audience with technical prowess.

And this he did with his flying fingers.

It sometimes appeared

that his fingers move faster than the eye could follow.

Still, I miss the romantic rapture

that this concerto is supposedly endowed with.

Incidentally, from the Third Movement

is where the theme for the song

“Full Moon and Empty Arms” is derived.

Probably Denis would perform his best

if he plays the compositions of Franz Liszt

such as the Hungarian Rhapsodies or the Etudes,

but not, of course,

the “Un Suspiro” nor the “Consolation No. 3”

These pieces are for the desperately romantics.

 

 

Photosynthesis Applied

When I wrote that duplicating nature’s photosynthesis

is the solution to climate change

I had no idea that this idea was already being

in the works.

Well, good for you.

No need for further research.

An artificial leaf, called a bionic leaf,

proves that this idea works.

Carbon Dioxide is converted into wood and food

and good ol’ oxygen.

Now watch this video closely.

After which it should minimize arguments

conclusively.

This one does not have any future

She does deserve an A-Plus, however,

for the effort.

Only for the effort.
