BILLABONG PRO MUNDAKA

Here comes again the surfers’ circus to the world’s best known left wave. Thousands of fans will gather in the place where Urdaibai meets the sea to see how the best surfers in the world get lost in the tubes of Mundaka. Last year, Hodei Collazo put Kelly Slater (8 times world champion) againts the ropes. We hope we have a chance to see something similar this year. Timber!

DONOSTIA FANTASY & TERROR WEEK

Party animals say that the best way to overcome a hangover is to get drunk again. The best way to overcome the hangover of the San Sebastian Film Festival is to go into the Terror and Fantasy Week. There is nothing like going into the film garbage dump to face the stinky social aspects and elitist celluloid left by the Zinemaldia. You’ve never had some much fun in a movie theatre.

BAC BABYLON 07 BARCELONA

The city is the main protagonist in this year’s program. In cities, different personalities and opinions get mingled. In addition, cities are stages where changes take place and new ways of living are experienced. This year Bac Babylon 07 asked artists to offer new points of view about cities.

WILCO IN BILBAO (november 11)

Wilco is back in the Basque Country. We will get a chance to enjoy their last album, “Sky Blue Sky” and many other songs lead by Jeff Tweedy in a concert in the Euskalduna auditorium in Bilbao. In a short time, we will enjoy many outstanding concerts in Bilbao. We will play truant to go and see the concert. And we don’t care what our boss says...

LAB-ZINE

Not long ago, we found a little treasure on the net. It is called Labzine and you can find any sort on things in this magazine. It is the lack of definition in content and personality what we liked about this magazine and the fact that it makes us feel close to it.

DDR HOSTEL

There was a time when we find it weird to see two athletes from two German countries in the Olympic game. Being the same country, how come the female athlete on one side had a more haired moustache than the other? Today, Germany is one country; but if you feel nostalgic about those times or if you just go to spend a weekend in Berlin, this hotel offers you a great nostalgic experience.

HEIMA

This is the first movie by the Icelandic group, Sigur Ros. This is an exhibition of the tour that this group did in their own country. (Heima means house in Icelandic). We watched the trailer of the movie on the net and we were amazed with the images and the music. Inedit- beefeater festival will project it during october. The premier will be in Reykjavik and we will face Lourdes, waiting for the miracle that will bring it here to the movie theatres.
