Poetry is what happens when nothing else can

“The nights you fight best are
when all the weapons are pointed at you,
when all the voices hurl their insults
while the dream is being strangled.

The nights you fight best are
when reason gets kicked in the gut,
when the chariots of gloom encircle you.

The nights you fight best are
when the laughter of fools fills the air,
when the kiss of death is mistaken for love.

The nights you fight best are
when the game is fixed,
when the crowd screams for your blood.

The nights you fight best are
on a night like this
as you chase a thousand dark rats from your brain,
as you rise up against the impossible,
as you become a brother to the tender sister of joy

and move on


Charles Bukowski


Why sport activities and exercise are essential

Whatever your age, there’s strong scientific evidence that being physically active can help you lead a healthier and even happier life.

 We all know that exercise is important in our daily lives, but we may not know why or pretend to have no time to do sports activities on daily basis.

 It is important to remember how our bodies had been designed. To make it easier I’d like to compare our structure with the design of sports car.

 In the same way that a sports car is designed to go fast, we are designed to move. If the sports car is taken out once a week for a 3 mile round trip through a town centre then it would probably develop engine problems fairly quickly.

 Exactly the same thing might happen to us. Over time people too develop problems if they sit down all day at a desk or in front of the TV and minimise the amount of exercise they do.

 The benefits of exercise are numerous and these include healthy and brain functions.

 Exercise improves both the strength of your muscles, bones and joints and the efficiency of your brain. Also when your cardiovascular system works better everything seems easier and you have more energy for the fun stuff in life.

 Good news for sleep lovers. Active people tend to sleep better.

Physical activity makes you more tired so you’re more ready to sleep. Good quality sleep helps improve overall wellness and can reduce stress.

 Above all, physical activities will lead to a better social life, giving you the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

 As everything, the beginning it is the though part, but once you get started, will be hard to not see the benefits coming from it.








The war is coming…

Their purpose is clear, very clear, they want us to break apart, they want to create fear, they want us to live in agony.

They want us to stare angrily at each other  and they want us to begin to stab one another.

Hate. This is what they want. To grow hate among human races.

So, do you understand that following  a populist thought or making everything one big bundle of grass or hate the others, means only play into the hands of terrorists? Become accomplices of those who want to destroy us?



Short story/interview of Kray twins

I had the opportunity to help Scotland Yard during their crime research on two of England’s most ruthless gangsters.

Myself and my twin brother, Ronnie.

After both of us were arrested and declared guilty for our injustice, I’ve been asked to collaborate with detective Leonard Nipper to find the truth behind my brother’s personality, very often affected by mental disorders and strange behaviours.

Ronald “Ronnie” Kray was born in Hoxton, Middlesex, a few minutes after myself.

When I asked him where to start, he said that he couldn’t cope with the idea of being born second and most probably carried out the thought of being the weakest brother.

The influence of our grandfather Jimmy, helped us bond as brothers through amateur boxing, a popular pastime for working-class boys in the East End.

He told me how excited and invincible he felt alongside myself, both during the training and the matches.
Recalling the incredible series of unbeaten results until the age of 19, when our numerous criminal records ended our boxing career.

Everything started when we bought the snooker club in Bethnal Green, we ended up turning the place into the biggest protection rackets location.

If I recall correctly, I remember Ronnie interrupting the chat saying “how perfect and smooth this time was…” followed by a long pause.
I thought that was the right moment to find out what changed his loyal behaviour into the aggressive and impatience person he had become.

“Why did you shot Cornell that night?” I asked.

“We had plenty of men which could have done it for you Ronnie, why?” I asked again with a strong tone.

Elegantly and quietly, he said that Cornell guaranteed his own death sentence by insulting him.

“I’ve done the world a favour…” he said smiling while looking for his lighter to light up his cigarette.

“People think depression is a bad feeling Reggie”

“It is” I said.

“It is not, Reggie. It is a gift” he added.

After Cornell’s death I couldn’t trust him anymore for obvious reasons, but he was still my beloved brother.
Our criminal organisation grew rapidly and we got our hands throughout all of London during the 50s and 60s, involving public figures and politicians.

Ronnie remained in Broadmmor hospital for long time, looking to rehabilitate.
The environment didn’t suit his dress-code and the way he was looking after his hands didn’t suggest any criminal offence.

But that was only the impression.

When I finally asked how he was doing, he said: “I don’t allow myself to live in the past but I know that we’ll live forever”

I asked what he means by that.

He stood up and he pointed out of the window. With a heroic posture, looking out at the landscape of London, he added: “Yeah, I do regret some things. And I know I frightened quite a lot people.”

I nod and add: “Would you do the same again alongside me Ronnie?”

Without looking back at me while helping himself to some water and a couple of anti-depression pills, he said we couldn’t do better.

“Will you come back again Reggie?” He asked.

“Certainly” I said.

Detective Nipper was delighted by my work but at the end of the day, I was still a criminal.

Both of us were sentenced to life imprisonment.


Film review – Inception


Genre : Fantasy, Psychological, Sci-Fi

Directed and written by : Christopher Nolan

In Dvd : since December 2010

10 years after the release of the astonishing movie “Memento”, the young British writer and director Christopher Nolan, delights us with this smart psychological sci-fi : Inception.
The dreams within dreams.

The seven time winner award producer, enhances not only the power of our mind when unconscious but he brings to us the beauty of architecture and the mystery of more complex thoughts.

Interpreted by Leonardo Di Caprio and supported by an excellent cast, worth itself the ticket’s price.

Di Caprio plays Cobb, an international modern thief which practices the extraction of ideas by putting himself to sleep, enters another person’s dream and steals the idea after digging deeply into its subconscious.

For his final job, Cobb will not simply steal thoughts from someone’s mind but he will be asked to implant a never existed belief into somebody’s head. To do so, he assembles a stealthy crew which will help to finalise the final state : the dream within a dream within a dream.

Ariadne (Ellen Page) will be the dream architect, Eames (Tom Hardy) will forge the true nature of characters, Yusuf (Dileep Rao) will provide the heavy-sedatives and Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) will ensure the kick will be given at right time.

The mission will not run smoothly because of Cobb’s Achilles heel, Marge (Marion Cotillard).

The complexity of travelling among minds added to the uncertainty of your perception of reality requires its audience to remain on the edge of their seats throughout the entire movie.

It will be hard sometimes to understand whether you’re in a dream or reality.

2H30min of your precious time that will leave you pondering for days, even weeks after you have left the cinema. Good acting, great writing and great directing, make this movie one of a kind.

CalcioCraze; Fools in Love


forza italian football
There are matters of the heart that words fail to describe. The strings that send the cardiac organ into playing tunes and notes no instrument can pirate are found in very few things that have no bound; like the lady whose blink leaves you breathless, or the care and patience of a mother. But above all, and beyond magic and hobbits, there is the beautiful world of Calcio. Whether it be the tactical discipline enshrined in the syntax of Catenacchio, or the contempt with which some Italians view English football, there is always a scene or two in this wonderfully wrought masterpiece of sport entertainment that no other culture could match. Calcio, after all, is the single yarn that weaves into the very fabric that is the Italian culture. It is difficult to admire one without acknowledging the other. And like the exploits of the Roman nation, the Shakespeare-esque love…

The Legend in the Picture


Totti twitter

Some players you just adore for their professionalism, others for their grit and commitment. Still, there are those you try to dislike simply because they are too good to be playing against your favourite team. You pray for all the ill-luck to slow their progress yet, like a bad diarrhoea, they continue to plague your pants with shit after shit of unstoppable distress.

The documents say he made his debut at the age of 16 against Brescia, but 22 years on, his desire for the game remains whole and aflame. Already among the greatest one-club footballers of our time, the Big Baby has once more etched his name in the folklore of Roman Football. He is now the man of the Capital Derby with 11 strikes, after capping a memorable comeback against their sea-blue cousins with a selfie-capturing display under the Curva.

Aptly named the Emperor of Rome, this embodiment of…
