Was it right to give De Niro blue eyes and cast him as an irish? Seriously?

   She said: "It grieves me so to see you in such pain.
                  Em                  D           Cmaj7    Ebdim
   I wish there was something I could do to make you smile again."
                 Em          D               Cmaj7      B7
   I said: "I appreciate that and would you please explain

Em                 D                  Cmaj7          B7

I want to have the chorus with the same chords and tempo than the verses.

Fifty ways to leave your lover,

I love the song BUT, I think the chorus arrangement is a mistake. Anyone would try to re arrange the song  for the chorus to sound like the verses? Not a specialist so I hope it makes sense...

Watched La Influencia on Netflix. Very Good.  Spanish. Spanish and south american horror are really well thought,  they do that a lot better than Hollywood ever did. Aterados (literally terrified) excellent too.

FILM/TV/MUSIC/Art etc... / Re: What you READING?
« on: October 22, 2019, 03:13:46 PM »
I used to read a lot more than now. I still read a good few pages a day but mainly articles rather than books. Before I had kids I was reading 2 to 3 books per week. I was quite fast as well, could manage to read an average 200-250 pages in a little bit over 2 hours... And when I was a child I was constantly reading. I miss it, just can't find the time anymore. There is something about getting lost in a text that is idiosyncratic to reading and can't be compared to listening to music or watching movie, it's a whole different level of sensations.

A lot of Original Netflix lately, I find their own content very interesting. A serie called Marianne, extremely disturbing. Eli wasn't bad at all.  The Mind explained is a good serie to follow too.  Netflix is really trying to experiment new things, for that they're very important and so different of the whole remake vibe...

General Discussion / Re: Epigenetic
« on: October 22, 2019, 02:59:12 PM »
the discoveries in epigenetic are rewriting the rules of identity and heredity - also diseases.

the first experience was with agouti mice. They're yellow, fat and prone to diabetes and cancer. In this experiment they changed the mother diet, and the offsprings were slim, brownish and not as prone to cancer and diabetes. That has been achieved only by changing the diet of the mother not by altering the DNA of the mice.

Also epigenetic proved that our DNA can modify itself all along life, depending on our environment. Our DNA is not set in stone.

An other point that I found extremely interesting is that our experiences are also transmitted to the next generation. One example was a woman raped by a member of her family, having the child  from the rape. Analyzing the  DNA of the raped woman, her mother and her child, the researchers found ''scars'' from the trauma on certain genes, the grand mother and the mother had them, but the most surprising thing is that the child who didn't knew about the rape had the biggest genetic scar.

Therefor our own attitude toward life and negativity will affect our DNA and our offsprings DNA.

I am just starting to look into that field, it is very recent, it is absolutely fascinating, how malleable is our DNA and how everything we do, everything we experience is actually modifying it.

General Discussion / Epigenetic
« on: October 19, 2019, 07:13:42 PM »
Basically Epigenetic studies how environmental factors can modify the DNA. The fascinating part of it is to study how experiences can actually not only have effects on our health and psychological well being  but on our children's health and psychological well being as well. Stress, depression, negative life experiences will have deep effects on our DNA and will actually keep harming the next generation... The positive points is that DNA can be fixed, simply by solving the issues... for example as it is quite a simple article...

''Even more surprisingly, some data seems to suggest that grandchildren of women who were pregnant during the Hunger Winter experience some of these effects. From what we have already discussed, this strongly suggests an epigenetic mechanism. In fact, research with the Dutch Hunger Winter families continues, and a recent study looking at a gene galled IGF2 found lower levels of the methyl tag in the DNA of this gene in individuals exposed to the famine before birth. Although IGF2 may not itself be involved in the increased risk of poor health in these people, it shows that epigenetic effects (i.e. reduction of the number of methyl tags on particular genes) that are produced before birth can last for many decades. Studies in animals have also found that the diet of the mother can have effects on her offspring. For example, feeding sheep a diet lacking the types of food required to make methyl groups leads to offspring with altered patterns of DNA methylation and which have higher than expected rates of certain health problems.''

FILM/TV/MUSIC/Art etc... / The Joker Joachim Phoenix
« on: October 19, 2019, 04:01:29 PM »
Your opinion about the movie.  I wasn't too impressed watching it, even if few themes in the movie are interesting. I liked the idea that the joker and batman are actually half brothers, both mentally unstable, both missing their parents and most importantly missing  a solid father figure but with two different ways to be insane, one is trying to fix society while the other one wants to bring it in chaos. I liked as well to think about all those little daily annoyances piling up until it's unbearable. I also liked the speech about the general indifference from everyone...
Still the movie is far from being a revolution, a master piece or a shock. Joachim Phoenix is very good.
The more I think about it, the more I wonder, but is it just  a mere remake of Taxi Driver blended with Dc comics?

I think my biggest concern with all the fashionable Godard hatred is that it tends to minimize his very few serious contributions to film art. Contempt & Pierre Le Fou are masterpieces, while Band of Outsiders and Breathless are rather dull, but with moments of inspired brilliance worthy of experiencing. I’d just hate for him to be dismissed out of hand, without giving the devil his due.

I don't hate him and won't deny the importance of the Nouvelle Vague either, let's just say it never been my cup of tea...

None of his albums are bad, so I disagree with ''worst to best''...
