Re: Lists lists lists

I agree, but obviously he's exaggerating like a bastard, trying to make some people upset. No doubt he doesn't like Dostoevsky, but generally in this write-up he's acting way too polemic for me to be able to take him 100% seriously. It's an amusing fire spitting tirade though. Usually we only read t...

Re: Lists lists lists

Speaking of lists, maybe we should just leave it to the master. Nabokov's lit recommendations (and disapprovals) Highlights: " Camus, Albert . Dislike him. Second-rate, ephemeral, puffed-up. A nonentity, means absolutely nothing to me. Awful." " Dostoevsky, Fyodor . Dislike him. A che...

Wanderlust Support Group

I'm about to lose it again. Trying to hide away certain books, keep my friends and family close, pretend that the non-Spanish movies on Mubi aren't there, forget about the fact that we have only been dealt limited time in this life to work on languages, or any other vocation for that matter. Eyes on...

Wow, I just watched the intro. This looks amazing! Look at how she glides over the floor, kisses one and then the next, and now here comes a jealous one! I can already feel my heart pumping a little faster and stronger!

Re: Spanish Group

Yesterday I finished Destinos. It's a relief not having to deal with this thing anymore. That is not to say I didn't learn anything from it, because I learnt a lot. But that was when I was starting out with Spanish more than a year ago. For some reason I stopped watching it around the thirtieth epis...

Re: Spanish subjuntivo and pasados books

Click here! For a sample from the pasados book (from the pretérito perfecto unit, maybe not the most pressing issue). You can see the unit layout and also the table of contents. I'm also very interested in these books, thanks for notifying me! If you are to get them and work through them, I'd love ...

Re: Lists lists lists

Only a handful of these have come my way. IMDB describes La pianiste this way: "A young man romantically pursues his masochistic piano teacher." "Masochistic" may be an understatement! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0254686/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 The Crime and Punishment connection in Pi...

Excellent channel--thanks mucho!


Ditto, thanks a lot. Subscribed.

Who says a list can't contain one single item?

Re: Lists lists lists

Those radio feuilletons seem awesome. You lucky French students, such an immensity of great resources. Here are my favorite Spanish podcasts: Carne cruda by Javier "Crudo" Gallego Radio Ambulante by Daniel Alarcón et al El gran apagón by some folks over at Podium Podcast I listen to them a...
