Before I even understood what Coachella was I tried to figure out how to pronounce this curious name.

The correct diction comes from the Hispanic language because Coachella is the name of the valley where this music festival was first held: in Indio, California, at Empire Polo Events

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was born in 1999 on the occasion of the 30th “birthday” of the quintessential music festival.

No need to specify the name, right? Just the date is enough: 1969

Actually, the Coachella festival is conceived precisely on the failure of Woodstock 1999, so catastrophic that it was called the day the 90s died

Coachella was the need to restart from art.

And from this restart, the numbers year after year have multiplied, until it has become a musical and very fashionable event.

Coachella is music, but Coachella is also outfits: I collected some photos from the web.

What do you think?

Would you feel inspired by the music enough to indulge in your look?

Have you ever attended any kind of dress code or otherwise themed event?

Undisputed queen of the just concluded edition was Zendaya who also surprisingly sang.  together with Labrinth All for us from Euphoria

She is so universal and versatile that it becomes really hard to find suitable adjectives.

From the white camisole under dress for Coachella, to the maison blanche E-1027, built by Eileen Gray in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, as her own testimonial for Le Capucines

Music always as an important thread.

I don’t know about you but when I listen to Urge Overkill Girl you’ll be a woman soon I can’t help but think of a totally iconic scene … in the radio frame shall we catch a quote from it? We will talk about it again 🙂



Remember when we talked about cooperation

We were left with the Improve-ments cue, yet unfortunately my ability to properly follow through on all the things I would like to do has not improved at all.

In any case, there is no use crying over spilled milk assuming you don’t prefer latte 🙂 so in case you missed the post on 2010: Escape from Polis I’ll bring the thread back here as well.

The reflection in question is not metaphorical but virtual.

I am referring to the cameras that some car manufacturers have introduced in place of the classic side glass mirrors.

These mirror cams become another small step in ONLIFE to use an author’s neologism.

Onlife is what is happening and being done as life flows by staying connected to interactive devices.

For now, these are only high-end cars, but do you think that what is still only an option now, could become commonplace for all cars in the future?

Without even talking about cost, the first question that came to my mind is about the consumption that will inevitably reduce battery life.

What is your opinion?

Have you experienced driving using these cams instead of the classic side mirrors?

Do you think you would have difficulty, or do you look forward to this innovation spreading to most vehicles as has already happened with digital dashboards, for example?

Real reflection or virtual reflection?



A curtain of purple Wisteria …

Do you recognize which quote this line belongs to?

The wisteria I am telling you about, however, is not located on an avenue, and for that very reason it struck me very much.

The wisteria I want to tell you about sat along a country lane, expanding in its natural, wild architecture, without being an embellishment to anyone.

I like the idea that it has done well here in Lomellina, a place with characteristics quite different from its homeland.

In China wisteria is called Zǐténg 紫藤 i.e. blue vine, even the German name: Blauregen is inspired by the color.

Wisteria, on the other hand, comes from the Greek glýkis γλύκης meaning sweetness.

Name inspired by scent therefore, rather than color. Curious, isn’t it?

What strikes you most about wisteria?

Personally, I would say the color. In particular I have the memory of the arbor at the mill where my grandparents lived.

And in general what strikes you about flowers: the scent?

What is your favorite flower

What do you associate the thought of flowers with?

I found myself thinking that, just like this wisteria, I would love for other kinds of beauty to take over space, we would need it so much, wouldn’t we?

Maybe mine is tiredness, but sometimes I feel crushed by all the ugliness that surrounds us in our daily lives, after all, little would be enough to improve each other’s lives, and instead the common trend is heading exactly the opposite.

It is said that Wisteria for Japanese culture represents love and longevity, I ask for confirmation from those who are very knowledgeable on the subject, but in the meantime I would like to take it as a wish, adding my personal interpretation of this wisteria: freedom.

Shard by shard we are released from the tyranny of so-called time. A curtain of purple wisteria partially conceals the entrance to a familiar garden… In a wink, a lifetime, we pass through the infinite movements of a silent overture.



72 Seasons is the title chosen by Metallica for their new album released yesterday and anticipated by a global premiere on Thursday, April 13 at the same time in cinemas around the world.

72 Seasons equals the first eighteen years of life.

The 72 seasons of life before coming of age, before becoming an adult.

James Hetfield said he was inspired by the idea of maturation that occurs during these years reading a book.

None of the interviews I found ever asked what this book was, yet that is the first question I would ever ask, “James what book did you read?”

In general, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo 72 seasons have not been easy, and I think each of us periodically rethink to the 72 seasons period.

For example, I often say that after a carefree childhood, adolescence was a bit of a middle age in its negative sense.

What memories do you have of your 72 Seasons?

Still talking about darkness: James Hetfield reminds us of its importance because without it there would be no light.

I reflected on this concept for the first time precisely during my 72 Seasons ….

Speaking of light, Lux Æterna is the debut single from this album and by associating it with Memento Mori I wondered if these obvious references are a consequence of the historical period in which we are living.

Instead, James Hetfield called Lux Æterna a joyful song and a kind of throwback to the 80s

What do you think about this definition?

I personally haven’t decided yet if I completely agree with it, however, I am sure of one thing: the second excerpted track If Darkness had a son is perfect to give a remarkable power.

My son and I listened to it in the morning while we were in the car on our way to school and the office, and we had fun and nice smiling.

Indeed I’m not the only one who gets energy from Metallica, as the Virginia Tech team uses Enter Sandman for pre-game … of course you can’t compare it to aka, but for those without Maori roots and ancestors, the effect is powerful enough, isn’t it?

Aside from coffee, of course, what gets your power?



Tell me if you, like me, as soon as you hear the word “annunciation” you can’t help but think of Lello Arena and his “annunciazione annunciazione” in the very famous sketch by the trio La Smorfia with the unforgettable Massimo Troisi.



With a hint of the same intrusiveness I would like to report that I have finally managed to share on the Reader as well!

I managed thanks to Jetpack

What is Jetpack was first asked by Eleonora  on her blog Le1000e1Recensione.

Now I can say that Jetpack for me was an entry.

Many things remain to be solved, related for example to the theme I use to publish which is partly alien, but this plugin, or rather, this toolkit i.e. this “IT toolbox” has opened the Reader door to Keep Calm & Drink Coffee articles.

The WordPress Reader is a feed aggregator and brings all blogs together, but until now KCDC was not … aggregatable.

Unfortunately for you though, I was now able to get in! 🙂

Have you ever been barred from access anywhere?

Did you give up or were you able to find a way?

The magical door to Howl’s Wandering Castle comes to mind.


But I also hope I don’t end up like the mythical scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom where Willie discovers she’s in a cave full of bugs and starts yelling “let me in!” While, however, Shorty and Indy inside are about to get squished and yell “let us out!”

What about you?
