Simulated sex, whips and leather uniforms. Christina Aguilera’s “Not Myself Tonight” and Madonna

Is Christina Aguilera’s video a parody of Madonna’s style? Are they boring?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Piano ballads, Australia, the UK and Germany.

22.11.09 – Thailand. Have you ever travelled to Thailand and Bangkok? Would you like to travel there? Please see below as well.

Mediterranean countries for “The Observer” and more

Italian… “Agriturismi” in Italy? Here there is an article by The Observer about Castellabate, the Cilento national park not very far from Naples, fried fresh anchovies with bread, olives and tomatoes and linguine with baby squid and broad beans. Should I write more about “agriturismi”? I am really addressing this question to tourists, and not to tourist operators…

Cancun, Mexico, Central America and Asia. Have you ever been to Cancun in Mexico or Thailand? And maybe from Sweden? Which are the flights? And where have you been?

Sitges. September in Spain from the UK? In Sitges? Do you know salsa music? Or maybe do you like to eat in tapas restaurants?

Again Italy. Do you like whales or dolphins in the Ligurian Sea or maybe Basilicata with southern Apennines and “bread from bakeries in Matera, wine from Aglianico and cheese from the mountains”? And do you like this list by The Observer?

An island. Sardinia‘s Supramonte Mountains and plateau, Sorgente Su Gologone and the Lanaittu Valley or a Nuraghic village. Any help needed by the Association for Tourist Services, Culture and Environment in Orgosolo or the Agrituristica Guthiddai? Would you like to taste boiled sheep, roasted pork, bread and salami or cheese, local wine and olive oil?

Going on with food, would you feel like eating almonds, carob, olive, pistachio and walnut trees? In Can Marti – Ibiza, Spain, with Swiss owners… Furthermore there is “homemade bread with local jam and honey”…

Spain and France. And what about Cortes de la Frontera in Spain and a lot of place in France like Béziers, the Languedoc, the Canal du Midi and Carcassonne? Or the vineyards of Minervois, Ventenac and the Cathar castle at Lastours? A wind farm there…

Burgundy and gay naturism. A gay naturist retreat in Burgundy by Citronniers with a price of 80 euros per night per person with a 3-course evening meal, full English breakfast, lunch and all drinks included.

– Morris’ blog about late breaking gays.

Marche. And would you like mountains’ cycling holidays in Alpujarras, Spain, as the second page of the article offers? Or an agriturismo in Le Marche, Italy? Here more information…

Cycling and eating. Do you know the village of Bérchules and the Alpujarras? And the Sierra Nevada above Granada and the Mulhacén in Spain? Do you like mountains’ cycling and picnicking? You should pay 630 euros a week.

Farming. A country house and organically run farm in Le Marche, Italy… What? A five-course evening meal?! Incredible… And “heating is solar-powered and there’s a wood-fired stove fuelled by coppicing from the farm woods”. Plus truffle-hunting not very far from Rimini, Urbino and Ancona. Doubles from €110 including breakfast.

Ssese’s Islands. Do you know where the tropical Ssese’s Islands are? If you would like to know it, please see this reportage by Richard Eilers for The Observer… Sands, forest walks, a lake, fried tilapia, above all the rapids and Bob Marley… And, moreover, as for names, Kampala, the MS Kalangala from Entebbe to Bugala, Lutoboka, Kibale Forest national park and the Bassese and, as for animals, gorillas and chimpanzees…

The Nile. And do you know what mzungu means, who Idi Amin is and where Jinja and the Bujagali Falls are? Clues for my question are the Nile and the lakes Nyinambuga and Victoria… Last, but not least, have you ever been to the Ssese Islands Beach Hotel, the Haven, the Ndali Lodge and to the Gately on Nile? Have you ever met South Africans or Americans?

Aircraft. You can fly to Entebbe from Brussels with Brussels Airlines on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10.40 to 19.35; from Amsterdam and from London Heathrow to Entebbe  with KLM. Among the other national parks in Uganda there would be the Bwindi Impenetrable national park in the south-west, Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth national parks and “the Foreign Office advises against travel to the Karamoja region, in the north-east”.

Difficult situation for Less tourists in Ireland with visitors from Britain down by 22.8 per cent or from other parts of Europe by 20 per cent. Sad situation, but let’s hope…

Southern Italy. What follows is not an ad and I know my readers should be very intelligent. So I add this link to a project for 122 two and three bed villas and townhouses near Sciacca, Sicily, Italy.

Northern and Central Italy. Do you like Castel Fidardo, near Ancona? And Vicobarone Ziano Piacentino, near Piacenza in Emilia Romagna?

Bellinzona e… in questa foto alberi cinesi, africani o australiani ed un cedro del Libano?

Blog e blog sui viaggi

bortografia 876. gli alberi multiculturali di Bellinzona, in Svizzera. Lo stessto testo anche qui e qui.

Martedì dieci maggio ’11

Gabriele Lavia, Lucio Battisti e Vasco Rossi. Gli universitari e la provincia di Agrigento


Il programma La compagnia del libro dell’emittente Tv2000, il cantante Ricky Gianco ed il gruppo dei Beatles.

Edoardo Savatteri la musica in provincia di Agrigento. Beh, cominciamo con la lista. Innanzitutto, vi piace il Jazz trio del pianista Edoardo Savatteri, di Michele Territo ed Antonio Fiore? E poi, continuando, i Sax Tape dei fratelli Brocceri, Pablo Dj e Francesco Frumento? Ed i deejay Walden ed Emanuele Polisano o Andrea Pellizzari ad Aragona?

Musica. Una mia prima sequenza con la roulette russa e il re-amore.

Una seconda che manda a quel paese (eufemismo), con gruppi, musica disco e “chiacchiericcio”.

Un’altra con musica neomelodica, un gruppo veneto, un cantante siciliano ed interpreti notissimi.

“Specializzate”, invece, una prima sequenza su un cantante rock emiliano ed una seconda su una stella sarda del pop e potete richiedere una canzone alle e-mail presenti in questa pagina.

13.01.10 – Kipling e Lavia. Ispirato ad un romanzo di Rudyard Kipling c’è il cartone Kim su Raigulp dopo le otto di sera e le undici di notte. E dov’è Ua Huka, tema di un documentario della stessa Tv2000, dopo le dieci meno venti di sera? Tornerà, inoltre, l’attore teatrale Gabriele Lavia dopo le otto di domattina ed anche venerdì quindici, lunedì diciotto e martedì diciannove.

La droga. Martedì mattino ci sarà anche un episodio “stupefacente” (nel senso che parla anche di droga) in L’ispettore Tibbs di un’emittente nazionale intorno alle dieci e mezza.

Gli aborigeni. Seguono gli aborigeni australiani, ma non proprio loro, in Due South un’ora dopo…

05.12.10 – Il Capodanno e la Befana in provincia di Agrigento. Buona Epifania e Befana a tutti, canicattinesi e non. Comincerete a festeggiarla stasera, martedì cinque dicembre, al Comida di Canicattì (a quanto sembra, in via Cesare Battisti) con Andrea Cassaro e Riccardo GaZ Gazziano? Ed il Jazz Trio del pianista Edoardo Savatteri, di Antonio Fiore e Michele Territo all’Elio’s Cafè di Porto Empedocle?

31.12.09 Pronti a festeggiare il Capodanno in provincia di Agrigento? E come lo festeggerete? Cenone e veglione? Concerto in piazza? E dove, ad Agrigento città, in piazza Stazione (piazza Marconi) con Sergio Calì e Mimmo Petrella dei Direzione Sud?

Vasco Rossi e… Dovrebbero esserci fra quattro ore – dopo mezzanotte –  anche Dario Indelicato e Dario Infurna dei Manalia, Federico Macedonio dell’Orchestra Luna rossa, Andrea Vanadia della Compagnia Eva Duarte, Salvatore Festalunga e Alfonso Barba dei Beast Blues Band, Gaetano Agrò degli Aetherea, Carmelo Salemi, Ausilio Polifemo dei Kosatosta e Claudia Rizzo dei Sunrise. Musiche annunciate di Donna Summer, Vasco Rossi, Ligabue, Paolo Belli, Jovanotti e Gloria Gaynor.

– Vasco Rossi, «Sto pensando a te» (video qui sotto).

Quanto ai veglioni, credo che i più importanti siano quelli del Vigneto con Provenzano Dj, Voice Sandro Bit, Dj Ross, Ranucci & Pelusi  A.K.A. Promiseland, probabilmente da una radio nazionale. Giorgio prezioso da questa radio sia al Magic Midnight di Canicattì che al Villa Sikania di Siculiana e nel primo caso c’è anche Costantino Vitagliano.

05.11.09 Arrivato il giovedì universitario ad Agrigento… Alle undici e mezza il deejay Andrea Cassaro al «Le Dinamique» del viale della Vittoria e Riccardo «Gaz» Gaziano ed un certo Leo al «Baraka Lounge» di via Cavaleri Magazzeni.

29.10.09 –  In «Direzione Sud». Beh, non so voi, ma io conosco un po’ – molto poco – l’agrigentino Michelangelo Calì, componente dei Direzione Sud, un gruppo locale che suonerà giovedì ventinove ottobre all’Oceanomare di San Leone dalle undici di sera. Mi chiedo, peraltro, se Oceanomare si scriva tutto unito oppure separato (Oceano mare).

I Beatles e Battisti. E vi chiedo anche se, finita l’estate, continuate a frequentare la terza spiaggia e se conoscete Sergio e Peppe Calì, Claudio Iacono e Mimmo Petrella. Fra la musica dei gruppi a cui i Direzione Sud dovrebbero ispirarsi, io sceglierei Francesco De Gregori e Lucio Battisti, preferendoli a Carlos Santana, ai Beatles, a Zucchero (Adelmo Sugar Fornaciari), Vasco Rossi, Stevie Wonder e Paolo Belli, ex dei Ladri di biciclette, famosi per Sotto questo sole.

In aggiunta, la serata sarà evidentemente ricca comprendendo anche il deejay Andrea Cassaro al Le Dynamique e  Ricardo Gaz Gazziano al Baraka Lounge di via Cavaleri Magazzeni dopo le undici e mezza.

«Geo & Geo», Maria Teresa Giarratano ed i viaggi

Avete visto Montalbano Elicona a Geo & Geo di Raitre, con Sveva Sagramola? Categorie su questa cittadina più a destra ed un altro riferimento sotto.

La vendemmia sull’Etna. Etna, vendemmia 1963.

La fotografia di Sellerio. Una foto di Enzo Sellerio per una mostra Alinari.

La nocciola di Montalbano Elicona e... Ma ora vorrei scrivervi di nocciole e turismo. Fra i comuni delle nocciole ci sarebbero in Sicilia la città palermitana di Polizzi Generosa ed i territori messinesi di Castell’Umberto, Montalbano Elicona (foto), Sant’Angelo di Brolo, Raccuja, Santa Domenica Vittoria, San Piero Patti, San Salvatore Fitalia, Sinagra, Tortorici ed Ucria. Magari vi scrivo sugli agriturismi in questa zona. E le nocciole dell’Etna?

17.01.10 – Le Langhe di Pavese, l’Australia di Chatwin, Kipling e Guttuso. Viaggio in Italia di Rai Storia sulle Langhe di Cesare Pavese domattina alle undici meno un quarto.

Sullo stesso canale dalle nove e mezza l’Australia delle Vie dei Canti di Bruce Chatwin per Un mondo a colori, la poesia Se di Rudyard Kipling con Senza rete ed, infine, Indro Montanelli a colloquio con il pittore Renato Guttuso (se non sbaglio bagherese) per Incontri.

Tutto questo blocco anche dalle undici e mezza di sera.

16.01.10 – Asti ed Aosta con «Sereno variabile». La Valle di Cogne, in Valle D’Aosta, è il “centro” della puntata odierna di «Sereno variabile» di Osvaldo Bevilacqua, con Valnontey e gli sci, il parco del Gran Paradiso, il pane di Gimillan e la battaglia delle regine di Aosta.

Maria Teresa Giarratano e Trieste. Monica Rubele è, invece, andata in provincia di Asti, nell’enoteca del Castello di Moasca ed al museo delle contadinerie di Nizza Monferrato, mentre Maria Teresa Giarratano sul golfo di Trieste ed alla riserva marina di Miramare. E vi piacerà oggi lo spazio di Simona Giacomelli? Appuntamento fra un quarto d’ora, alle cinque e dieci, e vi ricordo i tag e/o le categorie sulla conduttrice Maria Teresa Giarratano, il programma ed altri argomenti. Forse molti di noi non sono stati in nessuno di questi posti…

07.01.10 – Pavese e Langhe. Io non conosco bene l’opera di Cesare Pavese perché ho letto poco i suoi libri. Ed, inoltre, – forse – può esserci utile il programma La selva delle lettere di Tv2000, curato dal regista cinematografico Pupi Avati. Il secondo documentario – già in onda stasera, giovedì sette gennaio, da circa un quarto d’ora e visibile fino alle nove – si occupa, infatti, di questo scrittore…

Si vedranno immagini delle Langhe piemontesi? E vi scrivo di questa regione e di questo scrittore dal punto di vista turistico?

Contadini nelle Langhe di Cesare Pavese

05.01.10 – Etna e Val d’Aosta. Il vostro bilancio delle degustazioni di Il re è crudo al Castello di Saint-Rhémy-en-Bosses, in provincia di Aosta? Come vi è sembrato il prosciutto crudo Jambon de Bosses? E vi scrivo di turismo in questa cittadina?

Sappiate anche che Raidue propone un documentario alle sei e venti della matitna di domani sulle grotte dell’Etna.

14.11.09 – Enologia. I vini catanesi dell’Etna sono alcuni dei protagonisti di Bellitalia di Raitre nella mattinata di sabato quattordici novembre, poco prima dell’una. Se ne è occupato il giornalista Nino Amante così come si parlerà del ghiacciaio di Chardonay (in Val d’Aosta?) e del vino Chianti associato al politico del passato Bettino Ricasoli. Una parte del programma dovrebbe andare in onda, inoltre, da Brolo (provincia di Messina).

Nel programma anche un servizio sul vino Barolo – dalle Langhe cuneesi? – con un altro politico del passato sicuramente ancor più famoso, Camillo Benso, conte di Cavour.  Eccovi, sparse nel testo, alcune foto che hanno a che fare con l’enologia.

– Un vigneto in Brasile

Hotel SPA do vinho Vila Europa

18.10.09 – Il prosciutto di… Torna Eat Parade su Raidue nella notte fra sabato diciassette e domenica diciotto ottobre. All’una e trentacinque e dopo la puntata di venerdì sui vini pugliesi, la cucina modenese ed il prosciutto di Sauris (dove?).

Precedentemente ci sarà Sì viaggiare un quarto d’ora prima, il quale due settimane fa era andato alla riserva naturale del lago di Campotosto, così come alle isole di Principessa e di San Biagio, a Capracotta, Carovili ed a Bugen (in Abruzzo, Lombardia, Molise e… dove l’ultima?).

Marrakech. Mizar, in onda quasi all’una di notte, si concentrerà nuovamente sulla cultura dopo una puntata su Enzo Jannacci, l’orchestra di Ambrogio Sparagna ed Ennio Morricone da Rimini, mentre Stella del Sud di Raiuno (tre e dieci del mattino) va in Marocco, a Marrakech.

Il Wwf

Domenica toccherà ai vini del Chianti, in Toscana, con Massimiliano Ossini, il vino Muffato, la cinta (che dovrebbe essere un animale senese) ed una collaboratrice del programma, Eva Crosetta, che si occupa di un’americana, Nora Kravis, e delle capre da cahemire.

Le isole Cook, Zanzibar e la Namibia. Il consueto Alle falde del Kilimangiaro (Raitre, dopo le tre del pomeriggio) sceglie questa volta le isole Cook, le rose del Kenya (con il direttore del mensile Altreconomia), lo Zanzibar e la Giordania, mete delle due coppie di viaggiatori, la Namibia con giovani diversamente abili ed, infine, Giovanni Floris, conduttore di Ballarò.

– Il programma di Licia Colò e Barcellona

– La Namibia

Viaggiando tv, infine, su 7 Gold alle sette del pomeriggio e chissà se si parlerà del Senegal… Ancor prima, alle sei, Sapori d’autore, già in Abruzzo con il Montepulciano (a quanto pare, a bacca rossa e della Val Peligna), e Sulmona con i confetti ed Ovidio. C’erano anche il vino Principe Serafino che prenderebbe il nome da un nobile della famiglia Porcia, la Villa San Carlo Borromeo ed il Castello di Porcia. Ed, infine, Caorle e la Chiesa della Madonna dell’angelo e Jesolo.

– Dov’è o cos’è Jaddico? Qui un vigneto

Jaddico il vigneto

30.07.09 Non so se lo sapevate (io no), ma è nato anche grazie alle società vitivinicole siciliane «Donnafugata» e «Tasca d’Almerita» il cosiddetto istituto «Grandi marchi». E perché ve lo dico? Perché ho saputo che una cassetta in legno di ciliegio con alcuni vini sarà donata ai grandi della Terra. Tutto qui…

Fra le altre ditte di «Grandi marchi» anche «Biondi Santi», «Michele Chiarlo», «Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari», «Pio Cesare», «Tenuta San Guido», «Cà del bosco», «Umani Ronchi», «Carpenè Malvolti», «Lungarotti», «Masi», «Mastroberardino», «Alois Lageder», «Rivera», «Jermann» e «Marchesi Antinori».

– Uno dei numerosi vini

Un vino

17.11.08 Happy hour oggi con i vini di una marca palermitana in una «casa del vino» di via Libertà 92 a Palermo: si tratta di un syrah, un Nero d’Avola ed un catarratto.
