You are such a smart person. I really like your posts and the way you back up the things you say. And I freaking love your funny posts. I follow you on twitter and you mentioned you have lived abroad too. Is there any foreign singer or movie you like and suggest?
Well, I really love Portuguese and Brazilian music.
From Portugal, I love Dulce Pontes and the fado. It is so sad, it hurts. But it is utterly beautiful.
Brazil has so many great and current artists and the energy of their music is unbelievable. Ivete Sangalo is a huge popstar and she is one of the best. She sold out Madison Square Garden here in NYC a couple of years ago. You should check her out. Her energy is so positive!
Currently, I am CRAZY about this Brazilian show called AVENIDA BRASIL. I am so into it, it’s not even funny. I missed the first half of the story, so it pisses me off. If you understand Portuguese, you should get Globo Internacional on cable.
I love the main characters: Nina and Carminha.
I love foreign films: Brazilian, French, Spanish… You find great artistic films from those countries.
You should check the awfully beautiful CENTRAL STATION (from 1998), and the visually crazy CITY OF GOD (2002) - they were both nominated in the Academy Awards. THE PHANTOM (a Portuguese film) is great, so sensual and rough. You should also check Pedro Almodovar’s films like KIKA, BAD EDUCATION, and one of my all time favorite movies (ever), the beautiful TALK TO HER.
Let me know what you think of them when you watch/listen to them.
Also, I would like to know what you guys like and know about foreign arts - music, films, TV.
Let me know your preferences, let’s exchange knowledge on some good stuff - there’s too much
crap Lady CaCa in the world of arts and entertainment.
