Vintage stores also collapse

It is sad to know that due to the recession some vintage stores have to close their doors. This is what has happened with Carrboro’s Roulette Vintage, that has had to closed its doors due to the recession…

Es triste saber que debido a la situación de recesión también existen tiendas vintage que cierran sus puertas y este es el caso de Carrborro´s Roulette Vintage, que ha tenido que cerrar sus puertas debido a esta recesión…

I remember that my grandmother didn’t do crochet but she liked to sew.  Nevertheless, when I was little I would see while traveling in the countryside some women who would spend their time creating lovely fabrics while speaking about anything and everything. I had a neighbour when I was little whose grandmother loved doing things like in the picture. She did lots of round fabrics for the tables, little tables, sleep tables. It was awesome.

Do you have a grandma who likes still doing this, or do you like doing it yourself? I did a nice cape for my mother in crochet and also a dress in wool long ago, i was just 18 and would go visit a woman in a shop who sold wool and all kinds of tools for crochet. It was very relaxing!

Recuerdo que a m abuela no le gustaba hacer punto pero si coser. Sin embargo, cuando era pequeña, yo solía ver en el campo algunas mujers que pasaban su tiempo creando tejidos muy hermosos mientras hablaban de todo y de nada. Tenía una vecina cuando era una cría a cuya abuela le encantaba hacer cosas como en la fotografía. Hacía montones de telas así, para la mesa, para las mesillas, las mesitas de noche. Increíble.

Vuestra abuela hace este tipo de punto? O vosotras? Yo hice una capa en ganchillo para mi madre y también me hice un vestido de lana hace tiempo, tendría unos 18 años. Iba a visitar a una mujer que tenía una tienda de lanas y toda clase de  útiles para hacer punto. Era realmente relajante!

In 1900, Austrian Biologist Karl Landsteiner identified for the first time the different bloody types.

Are you The Hunter, The Humanist, The Farmer, the Warrior? You can click over the image to read the Japanese Bloody Typing and find out about your bloody personality type.

Did you know that the earliest known reference to Pi occurs in an Egyptian papyrus scroll, written around 1650 BC by a scribe names Ahmes?

Yesterday’s Movies

Yesterday I watched two movies:
My Name is Julia Ross and La Noche de los Girasoles.
My Name is Julia Ross (1945) is a great thriller that at times I could associate with Hitchcock's. I think it was the first time I saw this actress, Nina Foch. Is this possible? She was a Great actress. Sometimes her coldness reminds me of Dietrich. But her aaargh on the stairs is very emotional, she could show coldness and great emotions.
The place Bever..what is very eerie, in Cornwall. I would watch it again.
La Noche de los Girasoles  (2006) *literally means the night of the sunflowers* is a suspenseful movie as well. I very much like Carmelo Gomez, he is great but here what really appeals is the way the movie has been constructed. Around something that happens there are different moments that lead to the moment itself. And I loved seeing the beauty of the north of Spain as well as the old manners still some youngsters have and that here they are impossible.


Ayer vi dos películas:

Mi nombre es Julia Ross y La Noche de Los Girasoles.

Ni nombre es Julia Ross (1945) es un gran thriller que a veces podía asociar con las películas de Hitchcock. Creo que fue la primera vez que vi a esta actriz, Nina Foch. Es posible? Era una Gran actriz. A veces, su frialdad me recuerda a Dietrich. Pero su forma de chillar en las escaleras es emocionante, y podía mostrar frialdad y grandes emociones a la vez. El lugar que se nombra en la película, Bever.. no se qué, es increíblemente fantasmagórico, y se encuentra en Cornualles. La volvería a ver.

La Noche de los Girasoles (2006) es también una película de suspense. Me gusta mucho Carmelo Gómez, su trabajo está muy bien, pero aquí lo que más me ha gustado en esta película ha sido la forma en que se ha montado. Alrededor de algo que ocurre se van mostrando diferentes momentos que van llevando hasta ese momento en particular. Y me gustó mucho la belleza del norte de España así como las viejas costumbres que todavía algunos jóvenes siguen mostrando y que aquí ya no existen.
