a week of fear

This year's poster defines the Donostia Horror and Fantasy Film Festival perfectly. The Frankenstein-Loquillo character looks proudly malicious at the same time as humorous, and the girl next to him looks more like an evil Lolita than a girl. And, as you know, it'sour favourite yearly festival.

barbie foot

If you think that wearing a cap back- to-front and letting your underpants show is ridiculous, you're one of us: "an oldie" in other words, and you probably spend hours in bowling alleys and used hashish for what seemed like a lot of money at the time. Artist Chloe Ruchon has combined the table football adolescents play at with our sisters' Barbies in an interesting way. Our table football players had that era's real football players character: they were waist-less strong guys. But this French artist has today's football players' character on her table football. Ok, yeah, we know this classifies us as old-fashioned slobs, but, as we've said, we grew up when going bowling first became fashionable...

the goat or who is silvia

Txalo company has produced this singular work by States writer Edward Albee. No-one doubts that the title by itself rouses our curiosity. The play, in spite of what you might think at the beginning, isn't a mad comedy. It's a rounded piece of work which looks into the boundaries of love and society's needs. 24th October, Gayarre Theatre, Iruña.

true love tattoo

We told you we grew up in bowling alleys and we learnt to fear and show respect to the tattooed hardmen there. Nowadays, though, even delicate princesses can have tattoos, and so a more extreme ink-based solution has to be found to show true love. And that's what doctor Valentin Vikunjesky offers us. He can operate on you and put a tattoo on your heart. Yep, just like you're read it. But don't worry. He'll use anaesthetics and you won't feel the needles.

daily architecture

This website gives us suggestions in connection with daily architecture. We can read this by the actor Brad Pitt, who is, apparently, an architecture enthusiast: "architecture is probably the physical activity that most affects our daily life". You can see proof of this on this website, which brings together and studies buildings from all over the world.

montehermoso

Two concepts that have been extensively examined by art in recent times are going to be looked at in this collective exhibition: history and localism. What's the concept of history promoted by art? When we talk about local surroundings, in what sense do we use the word "local"? Works that reflect on and produce around these subjects can be seen at the Gasteiz Montehermoso culture centre until January 3rd.
