Anchovies are looking for formulas for live music

Culture is looking for solutions to survive the crisis caused by the coronavirus and there are many artists and show organizers who are currently working on new formulas that allow them to adapt to strict measures to prevent new infections. This is the case of Les Anxovetes, the group of habaneras from Girona, which due to the uncertainty experienced by the sector and the impossibility of knowing when and how the decontamination will occur, proposes three new formats of alternative concerts to be able to maintain live music and contact with the public.

“Hopefully over the next few months we can perform habanera singing in person and as we have always done, but in cases where this is not the case, we offer three alternative formats, which try to fit more easily with the measures that from now on will probably have to be taken in order to prevent the spread of the virus “, the group points out. who has just released his fourth album, In a can, Currently in digital format.

These are three proposals for prevent many spectators from gathering in the same space, with different degrees of face-to-face activity and use of technology.

The first format they propose is the mobile habanera singing, in a parade format for different spaces in a municipality, without the need to set up any stage, to avoid crowds in a single space.

The second, a habanera song 100% online, and the third, an intermediate point: a live habanera song, with limited capacity, combined with a network broadcast which could only be accessed by people who are provided with a specific link.

Sries to get scared – Diari de Girona

When it premiered The Curse of Hill House, magnificent adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s novel, there was a certain quorum to say that it was one of the best series of its year, and also showed that the horror genre is living a splendid moment of form. Maybe not on TV as much as in the movies, where it has reached a level of acceptance never seen before, but it is still giving away a good list of titles that manage to stay in your subconscious and complicate your home traffic a bit. . The case of the Mike Flanagan series for Netflix is ​​particularly commendable, because it takes a very classic mold (that of haunted houses) and knows how to turn it around, and this is one of the main reasons why there are so many expectations with the second season. But above all it is fundamental because it will most likely mark the way forward for future productions of the genre.

In any case, many things have happened before, during and after the visit to Hill House. If we go back a little, we find productions with big names but that were unjustly punctured, like The River, ABC series that brought together the talents of Oren Peli and Steven Spielberg but failed in its attempt to export the found footage on television; o Hemlock Grove (Netflix), a war between vampires and werewolves that, despite good visual effects and the presence of Famke Janssen, never finished curdling among its natural audience.

One of the television customs of the genre is to adapt great films to the serial narrative, and so far has given rise to two great titles: one is, without a doubt, The exorcist (HBO), which never made large audiences but is a splendid revision of the classic, and the other is Scream, the last production of Wes Craven before his death and which has the success of reproducing the style of the four film installments without incurring cloning. Its first two seasons are on Netflix and the third must be just a few days from its premiere.

Over the past few years, horror series have proliferated on different channels and platforms, to the point that over the past five years they have been an almost ubiquitous genre on annual release lists. We have found failed series but with interesting elements like Outcast (right now it’s not on any platform), laudable attempt to refound the demonic tales; Slasher (Netflix), a unique Canadian production that wants to be an update of the style that gives it its title, and while it fails to bring great news, at least it is honest and entertaining, or the French production of Netflix Marianne, which is very erratic but introduces a character who wants to scare and actually does. The television boom of the genre has been especially productive in the format of anthologies, and this is thanks to the contribution of what is one of the fundamental series of modernity: American Horror Story. Ryan Murphy’s production, available on Netflix, has been dedicated throughout its seasons to exploring different styles and subgenres of horror with a truly admirable cause consciousness.

Maybe not all have the same quality, but there are some (like the second, set in a sanatorium, or the last, a tribute to the psychopaths of the 70s and 80s) that are unmissable. In their wake they have appeared Channel Zero (HBO), The Terror (Amazon) or the most sufficiently claimed Castle Rock (Movistar), a series dedicated to reinventing the universe of Stephen King based on some of his most popular scenarios and characters. Nor can we forget Into the dark, a laudable Hulu experiment (distributed here by HBO) that proposes a series of 90-minute episodes that premiere coinciding with some iconic holiday, such as Christmas or Thanksgiving.

As for the zombies, if it’s about being scared (to laugh we already have The Walking Dead) the best thing you can do is pull off Kingdom, Korean Netflix series about a plague that turns a feudal society into a nest of chaos and destruction. She’s worried because, no matter how fantastic, her hyperrealism makes her goosebumps.


La vigncia dels clssics – Diari de Girona

Much of today’s television production would not exist without the example of big names who knew how to explore our domestic terrors like no other. So if it’s all about being really scared the best thing to do is recover Stories for not sleeping, where Chicho Ibáñez Serrador proved to be one of the great creators who has given the genre here and also internationally, or The unknown dimension, in which Rod Serling defined forever the model of the television anthology. By the way, the latter has been the subject of a recent one remake endorsed by Jordan Peele and what you’ve probably heard little or nothing about. The reason? Which is a noisy disappointment that only works when it mimics the original, and that says very little about the capabilities of its screenwriters.

Other classics worth claiming are Night Gallery, The Outer Limits (and also his remake), or even Freddy’s nightmares, the anthology of nightmares presented by the protagonist of Nightmare on Elm Street and that she is always despised in horror series collections.

On the other hand, to be afraid you don’t have to be attached to gender: look Twin Peaks it is surely the best way to lose sleep for a few nights. Especially in his third season, the most current, David Lynch knows how to create a very distressing atmosphere that mirrors us to the worst of our intimate terrors: the passage of time.


“The ascent continues to be the goal” – Diari de Girona

Four personal brushstrokes. Because the live matches on the official Instagram of Girona FC are also used for this. We know that Pep Lluís Martí, a man of few words in the press rooms and a lover of clichés in the face of the press, loves fideuà, devours motivational and self-help books while focusing on his work and is a in love with the walks on the banks of the river Onyar at sunset. That, on the one hand. On the other hand, it has become clear that he is proud of his career as a footballer, that he would love to dress short again, that he would like to win a league title – and if it can be this year, perfect – and that both he and his players are dying to play again to catch the target. The rise, of course. The white-and-red coach talked about all this and more yesterday afternoon, in a rather pleasant and entertaining talk on social media.

cheers in the locker room

“The spirits are good. Everyone wants to play again and do their best. We are in daily contact with the players, they pass on all the data to us: When they weigh, if they have discomfort, how they are … We do group workouts twice a week. We are with them for everything they need.

message to players

“I try to convey a lot of peace of mind to them and know their needs. The first thing I did was call everyone, know their feelings, know how they lived it. We have been in group contact and with the technical body. Our task is this. More psychology and mental, support. We have great professionals who are setting an example for us because they take care of themselves and are doing all the work ”.

will the league return?

“The problem we have is that we don’t know when we will start or how many days we will have to prepare. This gives us some doubt and uncertainty. At the same time we have players who are very attentive, with quality to be able to face any task and situation. This makes it easier for us. A kind of preseason awaits us, with the difference that we only have eleven games. The preparation will be shorter with more rest.

have you played without an audience?

“It’s happened to me more than once. The first, in a match with Sevilla, a derby in the Copa del Rey with Betis. They threw a bottle of water at the head of Juande Ramos, the coach. The match was suspended just after 0-1. He resumed behind closed doors in a neutral field in Getafe. We played them there for 29 minutes. The atmosphere was very strange. It also happened to me in Granada. A lineman (Xavi Aguilar from Girona) dropped an umbrella when I was about to throw a corner. Then he played with Mallorca. It was suspended and we also completed what was missing behind closed doors. It’s a very strange feeling, the players themselves are not used to feeling what is there when there is no atmosphere in the stands. Football without an audience is not the same.

will it cost to adapt?

“Players will have a bad time. The mood of the audience helps you. Even when you play outside, it makes you take out the extra motivation. We are ready to take on this challenge to add the possible points that allow us to achieve the goal.

promotion to first

“We have nothing else on our minds other than being promoted to the First Division. We want to achieve this step by step. Now it’s time to train at home? So we train at home. We have the goal very clear in our head »

the landing in girona

“I found a team discouraged. It usually happens when a dismissal occurs. The players are people and they had the feeling that things were not going well. We did some tactical work to unite the group on defense and help each other, and then to bring out the talent. As for the motivational aspect, we bet on giving the player a lot of freedom so that his genius and imagination shine »

the hobby

“I send a message of encouragement to our fans. We will miss them in the stands, but not on the street. Whoever has a scarf, t-shirt or flag, hang it on the balconies. Not now, when the league returns. We may not have the warmth of the public in the field, but with that we will have it in a different way. It will give us strength to get to where we all want to be: the ascent »

professional career

“I feel very fulfilled. What makes me most proud is to have been able to play until I was 40, to have made a lot of friends and to have been able to play around 700 games. I enjoyed it inside the playing field. Now I would trade for any of my players. It may not be, but I would love to. I am a coach, I want to evolve, I like it more and more and I am more passionate. It is a profession that gives you many things »

a desire

“I would like to win a league title. Why not this year? We have to dream about it. I was close with Sevilla, we stayed to play once. It’s a title I’d love to get. “

Penlope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Pedro Almodvar and Alejandro Sanz donate 152,000 masks

They will be distributed in the Gregorio Maran hospital in Madrid and in various nursing homes and care centers for dependent people

Health workers applaud at the Gregorio Maran Hospital in Madrid.

Penlope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Pedro Almodvar and Alejandro Sanz152,000 masks will be donated, according to a note released by Cruz’s press officer.

These masks will be FFP2 and surgical, although the note does not explain how they were purchased.

These masks will be distributed in theGregorio Maran hospitalMadrid, which has become one of the main centers in Spain for the treatment of Covid-19 patients. In addition, according to said note, this sanitary material will be distributed in several nursing homes and care centers for dependent people, although what they are is not specified.

Some of this medical material will be distributed in Catalonia, and in that case the filmmakers and the musician specify that they will be distributed with the help of the NGO Open Arms.

A month ago, Penlope Cruz and Javier Bardem donated 100,000 gloves and 20,000 masks to theLa Paz HospitalMadrid to improve the safety conditions of toilets during the pandemic. The actor couple added that they hoped to “be able to donate other materials” in the coming days.

Alejandro Sanz assured in a recent interview with EL MUNDO that the thousands of old people killed in residences was the event that had most moved him from the pandemic.

“That topic hurts me a lot. How could that not have been taken care of a little more? A generation that fought so hard for this society and died without respirators,” he said.

The Madrid musician was very critical. That so many old people have died “should embarrass us for the rest of our lives,” he said. “And measures should be taken in the residences so that such a thing does not happen again. It was seen long ago, many news was coming out about the neglect of the residences, about how they were managed, it was predicting that catastrophe, and has exploited with this situation. All that was getting under the carpet has come out. A reconversion is needed in everything that has to do with residences and care for the elderly, who are people who have worked all their lives and who deserve to live the end of his days with dignity. “

The Treatment Board of the Puig de les Basses (Figueres) prison in which she is admitted decided to change the application of article 100.2 of the prison regime to the former consellera and allow an entity to go out to work six hours a day from Monday to Friday. that provides essential services. Specifically, a residence near Torroella de Montgr, the town where the former Minister of Social Affairs was born.

A few weeks ago the Prison Surveillance Court approved the 100.2 for Bassa but to take care three times a week of his sick mother. However, in his request he claimed that it was during the time that the usual caretaker was on vacation and no one else in the family could take over. That is why I now applied for semi-liberty again after getting a job outside the prison, specifically in this residence.

Bassa will be able to leave as of Monday, although the Prosecutor’s Office can oppose the decision of the Treatment Board, as it already did with the first resolution to take care of its mother since it considered that it was not useful for the purpose of reinsertion of 100.2. Once again, the Penitentiary Surveillance Court will have the last word.
