Quick tweets

– Luna Amara is playing an electric show this evening, in Fire Club. Be there.

– The new season of Weeds kicked off in spectacular fashion. First few episodes were great and really funny – unlike most season 4.

– Want something addictive? Try True Blood. If you tear it apart in little pieces and actually do some thinking, it’s a completely average show. But for some reason, I can’t stop watching. 

– Transformers 2 wins my personal blockbuster of the year award. Seriously, go see it, but make sure you turn off your brain before it starts.

– Anybody want to join me at the Sitges Fantastic Film Festival in Barcelona, this October? Thought so.

– Kevin Smith is directing a thriller. Oh, the horror.

– 4 (four) days left until Tales of Monkey Island

My tentacles keep spreading over the internet. Just activated my Facebook account (Cristian Tane) and my Twitter account (cristane). I have no idea how often I’ll update those (I’m actually surprised I’m updating this blog so damn often), but feel free to drop by anytime.

I AMsterdam

June 7, 2009 at 10:11 pm (haos)

My third time in Amsterdam, and each time it keeps getting better and better. This time I went there for the weekend mostly to meet a good friend that I haven’t seen in a long time (you can check out her blog here). And what a weekend it was. From tasting warm wort at the Heineken brewery, to eating Argentinian steak late at night, or getting lost in the Red Light District searching for some street with an impossible name, it was a blast. Thanks Geo & Robert for the warm welcome and being such good hosts – the services will be reciprocated soon 🙂

Delirium

June 7, 2009 at 9:55 pm (haos)

Every beer lover should come to Brussels – if not for the Belgian beer, at least for Delirium, the best bar I’ve ever seen. It’s really heaven. HEAVEN. They have on the menu more than 2.000 different kinds of beer from all around the world. We spent Friday night in Delirium traveling from continent to continent through beer. Brands from Kenya, Sri Lanka, Peru, Malaysia, you name it. Plus, we met a bunch of other cool people, mostly Americans, with whom we hanged out till almost 4 in the morning.
Picture this: a Romanian hanging out with Americans drinking Kenyan beer in a Belgian bar. You can’t make this shit up. IMG_0393

My RG Experience

June 2, 2009 at 3:14 pm (haos, Sports)

Printr-o bafta incredibila, am reusit sa fac rost de un bilet pentru ziua de luni la Roland Garros – eveniment sold-out de citeva luni bune. Am avut astfel ocazia sa iau parte la unul din cele mai mari 4 turnee de tenis din lume, si sa-i vad, printre altii, pe Andy Roddick, Andy Murray, Gael Monfils, Sorana Cirstea, Jelena Jankovic, Svetlana Kuznetsova si Tommy Robredo. A fost o zi minunata, intr-o locatie minunata. Here are some pics.

Pe una din aleile de la intrare…

Arena Lenglen de afara…

Niste terase…

Intrarea de pe Chatrier…

Intrarea de la muzeul RG…

Directii si distante 🙂

Vederea de la locul meu…

Me & Sorana 🙂

Andy Murray la antrenament…

O zi incheiata cu victoria Soranei in fata locului 5 WTA, Jelena Jankovic, dupa un meci absolut memorabil – considerat unul din cele mai frumoase ale anului, un meci la care inca nu imi vine sa cred ca am asistat pe viu.

First week update

May 29, 2009 at 2:20 pm (haos)

O saptamina de Belgia a trecut. Din pacate nu am avut timp sa vizitez mare lucru – am ajuns duminica aici, iar de luni pina azi, de dimineata pina pe la 5.30-6, am avut treaba. Bruxelles e un oras frumos, insa nu m-a dat cu nimic pe spate. Putea fi si mai frumos. In plus, e primul oras european in care am fost ce isi inchide absolut toate magazinele inainte de 6.30. Zilnic, cind ajung in centru, nu mai e nimic deschis, nici macar supermarket-urile.

Mi-am stabilit si programul celor doua weekenduri de stat aici – cu rezervari transport, hotel, tot tacimul. Astfel, miine merg la Bruges, duminica si luni (lunea asta e zi libera in Belgia) la Paris, iar weekendul viitor la Amsterdam.

Will keep you guys posted.

PS….. Antichrist-ul lui Von Trier, in premiera nationala la TIFF. Daca n-aveti ce face simbata viitoare, poate mergeti pina la Cluj.

A TIFF-less year

May 22, 2009 at 9:21 pm (Festivals, haos, Movies)

Pentru prima oara in ultimii 5 ani, voi rata TIFF-ul clujean. Motivul: proiect nou la munca, ce debuteaza cu 3 saptamini de training la Bruxelles. Desi regret absenta de la unul din evenimentele pe care le astept cel mai mult in fiecare an, chiar aveam nevoie de o schimbare temporara de decor, mai ales in perioada asta, iar Bruxelles ma va intimpina cu caldura, masina, hotel si multa ciocolata. Can’t ask for much more.

The end of the beginning of the end

January 18, 2009 at 12:47 am (haos)

Multe, multe filme. Multe seriale. Muzica rock. Si ginduri anapoda. Fara vreo regula, ordine sau vreun rost anume. Nu vroiam neaparat blog, dar nu stica sa il am.  Nu fac promisiuni, dar nici nu zic ca e inutil. Pentru ca nu e. Daca ar fi fost, v-as fi spus asta. Si m-as fi oprit aici. 

Anyway, pina se organizeaza lucrurile, aruncati un ochi pe www.cinefan.ro. Si uitati-va la filme. Recomandarea zilei: Once. Mai multe, data viitoare.
