Michela, Emma plus Others di Luca Muzzioli

Michela Malinov, con papà Atanas
Michela Malinov, con papà Atanas
MODENA - Mi si accusa spesso di criticare troppo il sistema... Mi si dice che "vivendo di una attività giornalistica che è parte integrante del mondo che racconto, la pallavolo, dovrei esaltarlo, non metterlo all'indice o mettere in evidenza i problemi, così da meritare di 'ricevere aiuti'...".

Ma di fronte al post in cui sono stato taggato da Michela ed Emma Malinov, figlie gemelle di dodici anni della coppia di amici Atanas MalinovKamelia Malinova non c'è da chiedersi se questo mondo sia giusto e se si meriti solo lodi. Perché la Fipav non interviene in questi casi (non solo quelle delle sorelle Malinov)? Perché i nostri dirigenti pensano solo alle passerelle, ad accaparrarsi eventi da milioni di euro da far girare, ma non a chi ha fatto della pallavolo una delle proprie ragioni di vita?

Tutto nasce dall'esonero di papà e mamma in quel di Bassano (B1 e giovanili), e sin qui ci può stare, è la legge dello sport, peccato che le due bambine, dovendosi trasferire in altra città con i genitori, non possano più giocare per questa stagione perché - pare - la società di Bassano non concede il trasferimento alle due dodicenni nelle società della città dove sono tornate ad abitare ora...

Che colpa hanno loro?

----------------

La lettera su Facebook delle gemelle Malinov.

Come si fa a vivere in un mondo così? C'è chi deve lottare per vivere: bambini che vengono uccisi nelle guerre dei grandi; bambini che lottano legati nei letti degli ospedali dai macchinari e tubicini; bambini trascinati in tribunale dai genitori che divorziano; bambini schiacciati per strada da un ubriaco incosciente; bambini costretti a fare le cose per incoronare i sogni dei genitori e poi diventano bambini viziati, bambini capricciosi e ancora bambini, bambini, bambini...

Ma ci sono anche bambini con la passione e un sogno da realizzare. C'è a chi piace lo sport, la musica, la moda, la scuola. Cosa facciamo quando i grandi non ci lasciano fare? Ci piace la pallavolo, è bella, è divertente, è lo sport di gruppo, di una squadra che a volte diventa la tua famiglia. Così come lo è diventata per noi. Da quando siamo nate siamo sempre in palestra. Un po' perché mamma e papà lavorano, un po' perché la sorella gioca, un po' perché lo vogliamo anche noi.

Ma quando la pallavolo diventa tutto e ce la tolgono come si fa ad andare avanti? Avevamo la nostra squadra, piccola, ma vincente. Grandi ragazze, orgogliose di voi. Otto piccole leonesse, pronte a sfidare chiunque, con il sogno di arrivare alle nazionali, svanito nel nulla. Avevamo la nostra grande famiglia, grandi e piccoli a lavorare in palestra, sudare nei campi, scherzare e piangere insieme. Mangiare le meringhe di Meri, i dolci di casa, compiti insieme, persino zumba.

Ci chiediamo adesso, perché tutto questo debba finire. Non sono bastate le notti insonni, le lettere scritte, o le telefonate per dire come siamo. Vogliamo ancora giocare. Perché ci togliete la pallavolo?Lasciateci fare. Perché il Mondo è fatto così? Perché noi bambini dobbiamo pagare per i capricci di voi grandi? Avete licenziato mamma e papa, ci avete tolto dalla squadra e fatto cambiare casa, scuola, professori e compagni di banco,ci avete fato cambiare la città. Ci state togliendo anche la pallavolo, il nostro sogno. Cosa vi abbiamo fatto per meritare questo? I giorni passati in palestra a raccogliere palloni, aiutare le grandi, pulire i campi, portare borse, borracce ed altro. Abbiamo solo 12 anni, cosa altro dobbiamo pagare perché ci lasciate giocare?Perché ve la prendete con noi? Che colpa abbiamo?

Ci avete fatto piangere,ci avete fatto male e non vi è bastato. Ci togliete anche la pallavolo. Se il Mondo è fatto così, tanto vale scoprirlo adesso. Fatevi forza bambini. Un giorno prenderemo noi il posto dei grandi e ricordiamoci del male che ci stanno facendo.

Basta guerre, basta pirati sulle strade, basta menzogne....Vogliamo un Mondo migliore.



Well, let's hope for the best.
God bless.

ROLLER BOOGIE (1979)(Not suitable for kids)



Storyline

Beyond ensuring that she makes it into Julliard as a flautist for the upcoming fall term, wealthy Lillian and Roger Barkley largely neglect their teenaged daughter, Terry Barkley. Although Terry doesn't try to hide the facts from them, her parents have no idea that she hates the flute and the associated music, has no desire to attend Julliard, and spends all her time on the proverbial wrong side of the tracks with her friend Lana roller skating on the Venice Beach boardwalk with the legions of other roller skaters. There, she attracts the attention of Bobby James, the hotshot skater who rightly believes he is headed to the next Olympics. Terry initially rebuffs Bobby's advances, until she asks him to teach her how to dance so that they can compete in the upcoming roller boogie contest at Jammer's, the local skating rink owned by Jammer Delaney, a former roller derby star. Terry and Bobby's relationship eventually becomes more than just about skating. But the roller boogie contest and ... Written by Huggo

Review by windypoplar / posted 3 July 2008

"Roller Boogie" is an absolute time capsule. It features Linda Blair at her ultimate cutest and a full bevy of roller skating teens. Undoubtedly this is the best roller boogie movie ever made! Which isn't saying much, but still its enjoyable fluff from start to finish, and considering its run time of over two hours, it never gets dull.

Terry barkley is a talented musician who'd rather skate at the local hot spot than get into Julliard! Wow, there s plot to root for. Her father, played by Roger Perry of "Facts of Life" fame, is not thrilled. Doesn't matter, Terry's heart is in her skates. But watch out, there are bad guys, rotten land-developers who want the roller rink for themselves! And they'll do anything to get it! Can Terry and Bobby save the day and win the big roller contest? Dare we hope? OK, you won't be on pins and needles, the plot in this flick is telegraphed so a two year old could get it.

Like I said, though, Roller Boogie is a time piece. If you want to see life in southern California in the late 70's this is it. I actually felt sorry for some of the guys and gals cause those outfits were really skin-tight! Linda looks great though. Jimmy Bray doesn't make an impression and that does hurt the film, but just enjoy the silly music, the stunts, some of which are righteous and the cheesy plot and your'e bound to have a good time. Note the extreme sports preview when Terry and Bobby are on the run and cross a pipeline! The party scene is also classic and was ripped off a dozen times after this.

Roller boogie has it all, pathos, passion, pepperoni! Hey, you can't take this too seriously, just enjoy and let your'e brain freeze.

And asked him to tell me what's on his mind
He said

Money, honey, uh huh huh
Money, honey
Money, honey, if you want to get along with me

Well, I said tell me baby, what's wrong with you?
From this day on our romance is through

'Bout how could another man take my place, she said

Well, I screamed and I hollered
I was so hard-pressed
I called the woman that I loved the best

Club Italia-Igor Gorgonzola Novara 0-3 (23-25, 18-25, 18-25) di Fipav Lombardia, posted Jan. 24, 2016

BUSTO ARSIZIO - La prima del 2016 non è fortunata per il Club Italia femminile, che esce sconfitto in tre set dalla sfida con l’Igor Gorgonzola Novara valida per la seconda giornata di ritorno della serie A1. Nonostante il risultato finale, la squadra azzurra lotta per lunghi tratti alla pari con una delle prime forze del campionato, scontando però la scarsa precisione in fase conclusiva; così nel primo set le azzurre recuperano dal 18-22 al 22-23, salvo poi arrendersi nella volata finale, mentre nel secondo restano in scia solo fino al 16-16 e nel terzo sono sempre costrette a inseguire. Sulla gara pesa indubbiamente anche l’assenza dell’ultim’ora di Anastasia Guerra, messa fuori causa da una pallonata accidentale in allenamento.

Il tallone d’Achille della squadra della Federazione Italiana Pallavolo in questa partita sono, come accennato, gli errori-punto: 32 in tre set, di cui ben 15 in attacco. Tra le migliori delle azzurre senza dubbio Ilaria Spirito, quasi perfetta in ricezione, e Sofia D’Odorico, che nel primo set mette a segno un lusinghiero 56% in attacco pur calando un po’ nei parziali successivi; la top scorer della squadra di casa è Paola Egonu con 13 punti. In difficoltà invece le centrali, e anche nel ruolo di opposto non dà frutti l’alternanza tra Zanette e Piani. Dall’altra parte l’Igor Gorgonzola può contare su una Aurea Cruz assolutamente strepitosa: 16 i punti messi a segno dalla schiacciatrice portoricana, con il 62% in attacco e un solo errore. Importanti per il successo delle novaresi anche gli ingressi in corsa di Fawcett e Malesevic al posto di Fabris e Bosetti.

Buona la cornice di pubblico del PalaYamamay, con quasi 1000 spettatori presenti: a tifare per le azzurre anche diversi gruppi scolastici e squadre giovanili.
Il prossimo impegno per il Club Italia è in calendario sabato 30 gennaio alle 20.30, quando le azzurre saranno ospiti della Nordmeccanica Piacenza per l’anticipo della sedicesima giornata.

IN CAMPO - Vigilia sfortunata per il Club Italia, che proprio negli ultimi allenamenti prepartita perde Anastasia Guerra: la schiacciatrice, colpita da una forte pallonata al volto, è tenuta precauzionalmente a riposo in attesa di accertamenti e va solo in panchina con la maglia del secondo libero. Pienamente recuperata invece Simona Minervini, anche lei vittima di una fortuita pallonata.

Formazione dunque quasi obbligata per Lucchi, che schiera D’Odorico in posto 4 in diagonale con Egonu e sceglie Zanette nel ruolo di opposto. Novara risponde con Signorile in palleggio, Fabris opposto, Bonifacio e Guiggi al centro, Bosetti e Cruz schiacciatrici e Sansonna libero.

LA PARTITA - Un buon turno di battuta di Orro (un ace) dà subito la spinta al Club Italia per il 4-1, poi Zanette e D’Odorico firmano il 6-2. Novara risponde con il servizio di Fabris e dal 7-4 ribalta il risultato sul 7-9 con due muri di Guiggi e Signorile. Le azzurre non mollano e si riportano avanti 12-11 al time out tecnico; l’equilibrio però è di nuovo spezzato da Cruz, che con un attacco e un muro firma il 13-16 costringendo Lucchi a fermare il gioco. L’Igor, che nel frattempo ha sostituito Bosetti con Malesevic, conserva il vantaggio (15-18) e allunga fino al 16-20 con un ace di Guiggi; entrano Malinov e Piani, e sono proprio un rocambolesco bagher dell’opposto e un muro della palleggiatrice ad accorciare le distanze sul 21-22. Sul 22-23 la battuta sbagliata da Egonu concede due set point alle piemontesi: D’Odorico annulla il primo, ma Cruz firma il 23-25.

Nel secondo set Novara propone dall’inizio Malesevic e Fawcett al posto di Bosetti e Fabris. Le ospiti si portano subito sull’1-3 proprio con la serba, ma il Club Italia accorcia le distanza con Zanette (4-5) e pareggia i conti con l’ace del 7-7 di Danesi; ancora Cruz guida però le sue al nuovo break del 7-10. Entra Piani per Zanette e dopo il time out tecnico (8-12) le azzurre riescono a recuperare fino all’11-12 con un muro vincente di Egonu, completando poi la rimonta con D’Odorico e Berti sul 16-16. A questo punto però le piemontesi piazzano un altro allungo con Cruz e Fawcett, portandosi sul 16-20, e malgrado i time out chiamati da Lucchi volano direttamente al set point con la portoricana (17-24). D’Odorico annulla il primo, ma poi spedisce fuori la battuta del 18-25 e le ospiti vincono anche il secondo parziale.

Anche nel terzo set Novara si stacca subito con il servizio di Bonifacio e l’attacco di Cruz: Lucchi chiama il primo time out sul 3-6. Il Club Italia prova a restare in scia con il muro di Berti (7-9), ma Guiggi fa il vuoto in battuta per il 7-12 e Malesevic tiene saldamente le ospiti avanti sul 10-15. Entra in campo Chirichella al posto di Guiggi, Fawcett mette a segno il punto del 14-20; l’ultimo sussulto è di Orro, che di prima intenzione sigla il 17-23, poi Bonifacio si procura 7 match point e l’attacco out di Piani mette fine a set e partita sul 18-25.

HANNO DETTO
Beatrice Berti: “Abbiamo giocato bene nel primo set, poi siamo andate in calando. Avremmo dovuto limitare gli errori perché con avversarie come questa non ci si può permettere di sbagliare; forse non siamo state abbastanza convinte. L’assenza di Anastasia non deve essere un alibi, quando manca una giocatrice tutte le altre devono cercare di dare qualcosa in più”.

Cristiano Lucchi: “L’approccio alla partita, ancora una volta, è stato buono; i loro cambi hanno dato la svolta. Novara ha fatto un ottimo lavoro a muro e in difesa, noi non siamo riusciti a metterle in difficoltà né in ricezione né in contrattacco. Sapevamo che sarebbe stata una partita ostica, ma sono comunque molto soddisfatto del lavoro svolto in questo periodo, anche se oggi non se ne sono visti i frutti”.

Sara Bonifacio: “Ho provato una grande emozione ma anche tanta voglia di dimostrare il mio valore, perché è merito del Club Italia se sono qua e ho la possibilità di giocare a questi livelli. Loro hanno retto bene per un set e mezzo, noi siamo state brave a portare il risultato a casa grazie a un’ottima prestazione a muro e in difesa”.

NORDMECCANICA PIACENZA - IL BISONTE FIRENZE 3-1 (25-19, 27-25, 33-35, 25-19)di Luca Ziliani, posted Jan. 24, 2016

Tre, come le vittorie consecutive tra campionato e Champions League e come i punti conquistati nel match. Il numero appartiene alla Nordmeccanica Piacenza, che sfata il tabù Il Bisonte Firenze (tre ko negli ultimi tre incontri) riscrivendo la storia dei confronti grazie al 3-1 del PalaBanca. Per la squadra di Gaspari, contro la Cenerentola non è stata affatto una passeggiata: ai netti successi nel primo e nel quarto set, infatti, si sono contrapposti i parziali centrali, estremamente combattuti, con Piacenza a segno 27-25 nel secondo set e Firenze capace di spuntarla ben 35-33 nel terzo.
Top scorer Meijners con 26 punti, con Bauer che tocca 21 punti, mentre mvp è Belien (17 punti e 70 per cento in attacco). Per la Nordmecccanica, bene il muro (12 punti, di cui 7 nel secondo set) e buon debutto di Marika Bianchini (in sestetto nella seconda metà del match e autrice di 10 punti). Sul versante toscano, 22 punti per Turlea e ottime risposte al centro (13 punti per Calloni e Krsmanovic, sopra al 50 per cento in attacco) e nel complesso una bella prestazione di squadra.
IN CAMPO - Piacenza schiera Ognjenovic in regia, Sorokaite opposta, Marcon e Meijners in posto quattro, Belien e Bauer centrali e Leonardi libero. Firenze risponde con Bechis in palleggio opposta a Turlea, Negrini e Vanzurova a formare l'asse di posto quattro, Calloni e Krsmanovic al centro e Parrocchiale libero.

'Love & Friendship' by Andrea Mandell, USA TODAY (2016 Sundance Film Festival)

Kate Beckinsale made a splash with this Jane Austen adaptation. Amazon and Roadside Attractions coupled up to purchase the period drama for about $2 million, reports Deadline, and the plan is for Love & Friendship to debut in theaters before hitting Amazon Prime.

Beckinsale earned raves playing the widow Lady Susan Vernon, who hides out at her in-laws' estate as rumors spread about her love life.

Cue the triumphant reviews: "Has there ever been a purer match between author and adapter than Jane Austen and Whit Stillman?" raved IndieWire. "Kate Beckinsale plays an uncharacteristically viperous Jane Austen heroine in Whit Stillman's characteristically droll comedy of manners," said Variety.

'Complete Unknown' by Andrea Mandell, USA TODAY (2016 Sundance Film Festival)

This Hitchcockian-style drama finds Rachel Weisz playing a modern woman leading a Catch Me If You Can-like life, until she emerges from the shadows after 15 years to confront an old beau (Michael Shannon). Despite a lukewarm reception at Sundance, Amazon bought the film "for a little more than $2 million," says The New York Times.

A little Sundance trivia: "Me and Rachel are actually godparents to the same child, so we figured it was about time to make a movie together," said Shannon at the film's premiere Monday night.

'Manchester By the Sea' by Andrea Mandell, USA TODAY (2016 Sundance Film Festival)

The Casey Affleck-led drama immediately sparked a bidding war in Park City, with many pundits speculating that the Kenneth Lonergan-directed film could end up in next year's awards race. Amazon prevailed, closing on what Deadline calls "an all-night auction" resulting in a $10 million deal "with plans for a traditional theatrical release with an awards season campaign."

"Basically, it's one of the best roles I've ever seen," said Matt Damon, a producer on the film, at the movie's Sundance premiere Saturday. Damon was supposed to star, but "I had a full slate and I wouldn't be able to do this movie until next year," he said. "I didn't want to get in the way of a great movie getting made.

"Casey instantly took the role. Because he saw what we all saw. I never made it through this script without crying. ... I wish I was in it, but I'm happy to be attached to it."

'Morris From America' by Andrea Mandell, USA TODAY (2016 Sundance Film Festival)

A24 (which successfully pushed Room into the Oscar race) shelled out seven figures for distribution rights to the Sundance hit Morris From America, a warm comedy about an African-American father and his 13-year-old son (Craig Robinson and newcomer Markees Christmas) navigating a new life abroad in a predominantly white city in Germany.

The coming-of-age story is helmed by director/writer Chad Hartigan. At a Q&A Sunday, an audience member asked how a white filmmaker was able to effectively capture such an inherently African-American experience.

"I was definitely nervous," said Hartigan. "There's something about (Morris) that I haven't seen before. Maybe it is because of the lack of opportunities for black filmmakers to tell stories about their own experiences, that is why I felt like I hadn't seen this type of father-son relationship in films. Or a young male black kid who's really kind of sensitive, a story about his coming of age where he's not pretending to be tough all the time. I was excited about those characters because they seemed new and fresh to me."

A dent was put in the glass ceiling at Sundance when Sony Pictures Classics snapped up female-led Wall Street drama Equity. Anna Gunn stars as a high-powered investment banker leading a major tech IPO — and struggling to make her mark in a man's world.

It's a hot season for Hollywood to head to the Financial District, thanks to The Big Short's five Oscar nominations and George Clooney's Money Monster hitting theaters in May. Finance drama "really is a genre of film at this point," says director Meera Menon, pointing to indie hits Margin Call and Arbitrage, and cult classics such as Oliver Stone's Wall Street. "They always do well at the box office. Audiences are drawn to watching them because it’s kind of a mysterious world, a world that really affects our day-to-day life in a very intense way. But it’s (also) a world that’s hard to get a handle on and understand from the inside how it really works."

'Wiener-Dog' by Andrea Mandell, USA TODAY (2016 Sundance Film Festival)

Amazon scooped up this little, odd comedy from director Todd Solondz in a seven-figure deal, according to Variety. Wiener-Dog stars an adorable dachshund and his variety of owners, including a vet tech (Greta Gerwig) who rescues the pup from being put to sleep, a depressed film professor (Danny DeVito) and a caustic grandmother (Ellen Burstyn) who renames her new dog, 'Cancer.'

'The Birth of a Nation' by Andrea Mandell, USA TODAY (2016 Sundance Film Festival)

The Birth of a Nation set a major new sales record Tuesday at Sundance, netting a $17.5 million distribution deal from Fox Searchlight, according to Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. An overnight bidding war included escalating offers from The Weinstein Co., Netflix and Paramount.

Birth had notable timing, arriving in the midst of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, and at the slavery drama's debut Monday night, audiences rose in a rare pre-screening standing ovation, followed by another at the film's conclusion.

The film centers its powerful story around a slave rebellion led by Nat Turner in 1831. "I made this film for one reason — in the hope of creating change agents," said writer/director/star Nate Parker during the film's Q&A. "You can watch this film and see there are systems that were in place that were corrupt and corrupted people. And the legacy of that still lives with us."

'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' by Andrea Mandell, USA TODAY (2016 Sundance Film Festival)

New Zealand director Taiki Waititi joked his Hunt for the Wilderpeople, which shot in freezing bush country, was "basically The Revenant, but no money."

His comedy/adventure sold to The Orchard for just under $2 million, and the deal includes a traditional theatrical release. The film marks the second collaboration between Waititi and The Orchard, who released his 2015 cult hit, What We Do in the Shadows.

In Wilderpeople, Ricky (Julian Dennison), a defiant young city kid finds himself on the run with his cantankerous foster uncle (Sam Neill) in the wild New Zealand bush. The festival favorite was a bright standout in a week crowded with gritty, often depressing dramas. In these tough times, "people don’t need to see depressing films. They need to be entertained,” says Waititi, who will soon direct Thor: Ragnarok.

Cev Cup:


Cev Cup - Ritorno 4i di Finale
Mercoledì 27 gennaio 2016, ore 20.30

Sir Safety-Sicoma Perugia (ITA) - SWD Powervolleys Düren (GER)
Arbitri: Mylonakis-Fuentes Barrasa

PERUGIA – Dopo una settimana esatta la Sir Safety Conad Perugia ha ripreso possesso del PalaEvangelisti.

I bianconeri sono tornati a lavorare sotto le volte di Pian di Massiano in vista del match di domani sera, mercoledì, di Cev Cup contro i tedeschi del Duren.

Per lo staff tecnico perugino da valutare le condizioni dei tre martelli Fromm, Russell e Kaliberda, tutti alle prese con dei problemi di ordine fisico.

Perugia, dopo la vittoria 1-3 in terra tedesca, necessita di almeno due set per conquistare il passaggio del turno ed entrare nella Challenge Phase dove scenderanno la peggior seconda e le tre migliori terze della fase a gironi della Champions League. Non vuole correre rischi il tecnico serbo Boban Kovac che intanto chiude definitivamente la negativa parentesi di Trento: “Archiviamo la sconfitta di Trento, dalla quale mi auguro che abbiamo imparato qualcosa. È stata una partita interpretata e giocata male, nella quale indubbiamente anche i nostri problemi fisici hanno inciso. A prescindere dal match in sé e per sé, gli infortuni subiti ci hanno un po’ rovinato la vigilia, ci sono mancati dei buoni allenamenti pregara e contro Trento, che ha giocato invece una buona pallavolo, non abbiamo avuto scampo”.

Guarda avanti Kovac che adesso, insieme alle due gare in programma mercoledì e domenica (contro Ravenna per la quarta di ritorno di Superlega), avrà un’intera settimana di lavoro a Perugia da poter sfruttare: “È vero, ci sono due gare in casa, ma soprattutto qualche allenamento in più per migliorare i nostri automatismi. Questa settimana ci deve servire tanto, sia gli allenamenti che le partite, per consolidare una nostra identità. E naturalmente c’è l’aspetto del risultato. Restando al primo match da disputare, quello di Cev Cup contro il Duren, dobbiamo prestare molta attenzione. Non c’è nulla di scontato, i tedeschi sono ambiziosi ed avranno l’idea, dopo l’andata, di potersela giocare. Però siamo in casa nostra, dobbiamo scendere in campo e dare il massimo. Mi aspetto certamente una prova importante in battuta e ricezione dove dobbiamo fare subito molto meglio”.

Chloe Ferry (Definitely Not suitable for kids)(For Mature Audience only)

Ce n’est pas un petit acci­dent malen­con­treux mais un bon gros raté pour Chloe Ferry. La star de télé­réa­lité britan­nique a dévoilé son sein ET sa culotte sur le tapis rouge.

Heureu­se­ment que Chloe Ferry n’est pas répu­tée pour sa pudeur. Cette Anglaise de 20 ans, héroïne de la télé­réa­lité Geor­die Shore, a eu plus qu’un acci­dent de robe sur le red carpet hier. Ce que Sophie Marceau a réalisé en deux fois à Cannes, elle l’a fait en une seule. Venue faire la promo­tion de sa colla­bo­ra­tion avec Lauren Pope, la reine des exten­sions pour cheveux au Royaume-Uni, elle a posé dans une longue robe vert sapin.



Fidèle à ses tenues habi­tuelles, elle avait d’abord misé sur un décol­leté très très plon­geant. Un peu trop peut-être, puisqu’il a simple­ment fallu un tout petit mouve­ment de tissu pour lais­ser entre­voir tout son sein. Mais Chloe ne s’est pas arrê­tée en si bon chemin. Sa robe porte­feuille, ouverte jusqu’en haut de la cuisse était un tout petit peu trop cintrée et moulait déjà bien ses formes. Au moindre petit pas, les pans de sa robe s’écar­taient et ça n’a pas loupé : tout le monde a pu voir sa culotte.

Etant donné la tenue qu’elle s’était choi­sie, on ne peut pas dire que Chloe Ferry avait misé sur la discré­tion, mais même pour ses dessous on pouvait diffi­ci­le­ment faire plus flashy : elle avait enfilé une culotte en dentelle rose fuch­sia. Au moins, elle en avait une.

César 2016: Par Hugo-Pierre Gausserand posted Jan. 25, 2016



Qui succédera à Timbuktu, grand vainqueur des César en 2015? Les noms des réalisateurs, films et comédiens en lice pour les plus prestigieuses récompenses du cinéma français seront dévoilés le 27 janvier, avec Mustang, Dheepan, La loi du marché ou Marguerite parmi les favoris.

Cette année, 4.276 professionnels du 7ème art ont jusqu'au 26 janvier minuit pour voter pour leurs œuvres préférées en 2015 parmi une longue liste de films, dont 216 éligibles aux César du meilleur film. La remise des statuettes récompensant les gagnants aura lieu le 26 février à Paris.

Plusieurs films semblent bien placés. Parmi eux, figurent Mustang, premier long-métrage de la réalisatrice franco-turque Deniz Gamze Ergüven, récit de l'émancipation de cinq sœurs adolescentes en Turquie et ode à la liberté, qui représente la France à l'Oscar du meilleur film étranger.

Dheepan de Jacques Audiard, Palme d'or au dernier Festival de Cannes, qui raconte le parcours en France de réfugiés sri-lankais, est également en bonne position. Tout comme La loi du marché de Stéphane Brizé, film âpre sur le monde du travail, ou Marguerite de Xavier Giannoli sur une cantatrice à la voix de casserole dans les années 1920.
Peu de place pour les succès au box-office

Fatima de Philippe Faucon, émouvant portrait d'une femme de ménage immigrée, déjà couronné par le Prix Louis-Delluc, pourrait également faire partie des sept longs métrages en course pour le titre de «meilleur film». Sans oublier Trois souvenirs de ma jeunesse d'Arnaud Desplechin, L'Hermine de Christian Vincent ou La Belle saison de Catherine Corsini.

Les plus gros succès français de l'année au box office, les comédies Les Nouvelles aventures d'Aladin et Les Profs 2 avec Kev Adams, ont en revanche peu de chances d'être nommées.

La 41e soirée des César se déroulera au Théâtre du Châtelet. C'est l'humoriste et comédienne Florence Foresti qui sera la maîtresse de cérémonie cette année.

RUSSIA - Per il terzo match casalingo consecutivo dopo quelli con Surgut e Fakel la Dinamo Mosca di Zaytsev (oggi limitato al 41% in att. e sostituito nel 3° set prima di rientrare nel corso del 5°) si ritrova sorprendentemente in svantaggio per 0-2. Grazie ai 23 punti col 57% in att. di Markin stavolta la rimonta riesce ed il Kuzbass si arrende 15-12 al 5° set.
Finiscono invece 3-0 tutti gli altri incontri: scontati (o quasi) quelli di Belgorod e Surgut su Krasnodar e Nizhniy, meno quello del Nova sull'Orenburg ed un po' inatteso, se non altro per le proporzioni, quello del Krasnoyarsk sull'Ufa.

Stacey Dash plus Others by Samantha Schnurr (Not suitable for kids)

It's Stacey Dash's turn in this racial war of words.
The Clueless actress and Fox News contributor recently came under fire after she called for the end of the BET network and Black History Month on live television. The 49-year-old was addressing the current Oscar backlash from celebrities like Jada Pinkett Smith and
Lupita Nyong'o regarding the lack of diversity among the nominees this year.
"We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration and if we don't want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards where you're only awarded if you're black," she said during a broadcast of Fox & Friends Wednesday. "If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It's a double standard."
The network didn't take kindly to her remarks, responding to her public call on their Instagram account and asking for their paycheck back for her recurring role on one of the network's previous original shows, The Game.
Fresh off the presses, Dash retorted with a lengthy—and fired up—blog post directed at the decades-old program: "Thank you for reminding me, since most people have never heard of that show."

"I'm thankful for all of the acting jobs I've had," she continued. "But, I look forward to the day when people don't self-segregate based on skin color, while loudly complaining about a segregated society."
The star was just getting started. In the post titled "How BET Lies to Black People," she cited recent quotes from the President of Programming Stephen Hill, who weighed in on the lack of diversity at this year's upcoming Oscars.
"It would be great if the Oscar nominees represented even closely the percentage of moviegoers who are of different ethnicities, but they don't," he said, according to the New York Daily News.
Dash doesn't think he understands the award.
"Oscars are awarded to the actors and actresses who excel...not the audience," she wrote. "What's next? Awarding $1 million to the guy sitting in his pajamas on the couch watching Survivor? Giving a blue ribbon to the kid who stayed home from field day? Giving a Nobel Peace Prize to a President who escalated wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?"
She also claimed BET operates on a double standard.
"My problem goes back to the notion that every area of life needs to break down exactly according to demographic ratios except in those areas in which black people have decided they want to have their own space," she added. "I don't have a problem with black people having their own space. I have a problem with the folks at BET absolutely freaking out when other institutions don't match up to what they think is best."

The opinionated commentator concluded with a final accusation—the network is fibbing and she's caught them.
"BET lies to American black people by telling them that the rest of America is racist, so stick close to your own kind," she finished. "They're absolutely mortified that someone like me—an independent-thinking black woman—dares call their bluff."
While BET has not yet responded to these specific allegations, the network's Twitter account referenced Dash's ex-boyfriend, Ryan Prophet, who called his former partner's recent statements ________________."
"@RealStaceyDash's week has zero chill - She just got dragged by an ex. Hard," BET tweeted Friday morning.

Champions League F.:NORDMECCANICA PIACENZA - VOLEI ALBA BLAJ 3-2 (25-20 16-25 25-22 24-26 16-14) posted Jan. 20, 2016

PIACENZA - Ancora una vittoria, la quinta consecutiva in Champions League per Nordmeccanica Volley. Al PalaBanca stavolta tocca all’Alba Blaj arrendersi, al termine di un’autentica battaglia durata due ore e mezza. Le romene non mollano mai e ne esce una partita molto equilibrata.
La spunta Piacenza al tie break, con tanti complimenti alle avversarie. Ottima Belien, in crescita anche le compagne di squadra. Top scorerMeijners con 21 punti.


LA PARTITA - Avvio equilibrato. Al primo time out le romene arrivano avanti 8-7. Poi Nordmeccanica Volley cambia passo, trovando maggiore fluidità in attacco. Con soddisfacenti risultati. E’ sorpasso e allungo al secondo time out tecnico: 16-12 per Piacenza. La squadra di Gaspari insiste nella sua azione efficace e conserva fino al traguardo una manciata di punti. L’Alba Blaj lotta, ritorna due volte anche a -3, ma alla distanza è costretta a cedere. Molto precisa Marcon: 6 punti e 62% in attacco.


L’Alba Blaj riparte meglio: avanti 8-5 al primo time out tecnico del secondo set e addirittura 16-7 al secondo. Le romene sono sempre più convinte, prendono coraggio e rimangono padrone del parziale. Piacenza ci prova, ma senza risultati pratici. Le romene pareggiano il conto dei set, vincendo 25-16.

Le romene confermano di essere una buona squadra e arrivano al primo time out tecnico del terzo set avanti 8-6. Ma Piacenza c’è e progressivamente migliora il suo gioco. Ecco la rimonta: un doppio punto di Belien permette a Nordmeccanica di condurre 14-10. Sorokaite firma il punto del 16-12. Piacenza ha pazienza a sufficienza per aspettare l’errore dell’avversario, che spesso arriva. Un ace di Bauer vale il 20-16. Poi Meijners (22-17): strada spalancata verso la conquista del parziale, che Piacenza fa suo senza esitare.

Equilibrio sovrano nel quarto set. Piacenza prova l’allungo (8-5), ma pronta è la risposta dell’Alba: 12 pari. Nordmeccanica sembra prendere in mano le operazioni del gioco, ma le romene ribattono colpo su colpo, fino a condurre 16-14. Poi Piacenza cambia passo, pareggia con l’ace di Meijners e sorpassa con Sorokaite: 19-18. Meijners consegna a Piacenza due match point: 24-22. Ma un parziale di 4-0 permette all’Alba di portare la contesa al tie break.

Sorpassi e controsorpassi, fino al doppio vantaggio di Piacenza, che si guadagna due match point. Sembra fatta, ma una volta ancora l’Alba annulla lo svantaggio. Alla distanza, ancora Belien, per l’ultimo colpo di reni verso la più sofferta delle vittorie.

Grazie a questo successo, Nordmeccanica Volley resta in vetta alla Pool F e mercoledì prossimo a Mosca, sul campo della Dinamo, giocherà per la vittoria del girone.

Prestazione positiva delle azzurre che, dopo aver vinto in rimonta il primo set, hanno poi controllato agevolmente il match con il tecnico azzurro che ha effettuato un’ampia rotazione del sestetto, tanto che la top scorer del match è stata Magdalena Wawrzyniak con 9 punti e il 50% in attacco.

IN CAMPO - Padrone di casa in campo con Kostic opposta a Cecilia, Turk (adattata al ruolo per emergenza) e Kucej al centro, Potokar e Koleva in banda e Jerala libero; Igor in campo con Fabris opposta a Signorile, Guiggi e Chirichella al centro, Fawcett (alla prima da titolare) e Cruz in banda e Sansonna libero.

LA PARTITA - Partono forte le padrone di casa, con Kostic che fa il break del 4-1 in maniout, Novara prende le misure e impatta con Signorile (6-6, muro su Potokar) e sorpassa con l’ace di Cruz 6-7. Al primo timeout tecnico passa però avanti Ljubljana, 8-7, e dopo l’allungo con il muro di Kostic 12-10) Novara rientra con l’ace di Chirichella e sorpassa con Fawcett 15-16 al secondo timeout tecnico. Ljubljana torna avanti con Hribar (ace) e Fenoglio ferma il gioco sul 21-19: al rientro in campo, sul turno in battuta di Fawcett, le azzurre ribaltano il parziale (21-24) con due punti di Fabris. Proprio l’opposto croato chiude, al secondo tentativo, 22-25 in pallonetto.

Avvio diverso nel secondo parziale, con Novara subito avanti con Fawcett (3-6, diagonale) e Guiggi (4-9, ace) mentre Ljubljana prova, invano, a fermare il gioco. Sul 5-12, Fenoglio cambia la diagonale di banda inserendo Malesevic e Bosetti, mentre tra le ospiti Iglicar sostituisce Kostic. Potokar trova un mini break in diagonale (8-12). Dopo l’assestamento, Malesevic (che chiuderà il set con il 100% in attacco) spinge le azzurre (8-16) mentre in campo si vedono anche Wawrzyniak e Bosio. Dopo il set ball conquistato in servizio da Guiggi (13-24), è proprio l’opposto polacco a chiudere il set di potenza 13-25.

Fenoglio mischia le carte e riparte con Wawrzyniak opposta a Bosio, Fabris (che a inizio carriera ricopriva proprio questo ruolo) e Chirichella al centro, Malesevic e Bosetti in banda e Sansonna libero. Si riparte proprio da Wawrzyniak a segno in diagonale (0-1) mentre due ace in fila di Bosetti scavano il solco (1-6) costringendo la formazione slovena al timeout e al rientro è ancora Wawrzyniak a trovare il maniout dell’1-7 e il pallonetto del 3-8 al primo timeout tecnico. Ancora lei, chiude di fatto anticipatamente il match con quattro ace quasi in successione (4-14), mentre tra le ospiti entra capitan Vrhovnik. Botta e risposta in battuta tra Iglicar e Chirichella (10-20), Bosetti e Wawrzyniak (15-23, maniout) avvicinano il traguardo, Chirichella trova il match ball sul 15-24 e poco dopo chiude Malesevic in pipe per il 17-25.

HANNO DETTO - "Abbiamo fatto quello che dovevamo – spiega a fine partita il tecnico Marco Fenoglio – e di questo sono soddisfatto. Trovo molto positivo, al di là dl risultato, l’aver avuto la possibilità di dare spazio a molte atlete che ultimamente giocavano poco e l’aver ricevuto da loro buone risposte. In particolare mi fa piacere per Wawrzyniak, sta lavorando davvero molto bene e sono felice che si sia potuta togliere questa soddisfazione".

Raggiante, l’opposto polacco: "Sono contenta, sia per la vittoria che era fondamentale per sperare di proseguire il nostro cammino europeo, sia per aver potuto vivere la partita da protagonista. La serie in battuta? Con questo pallone mi trovo più a mio agio, perché ci sono abituata dal campionato polacco, ma in generale devo dire che è andato tutto abbastanza bene. Ci siamo divertite in campo e questo è sempre un fattore positivo".

Former Eagle Don Felder plus Others by Hillel Italie (AP)

NEW YORK (AP) — Don Felder had still not given up on speaking again to Glenn Frey.

The former Eagles guitarist, estranged from Frey and the other band members since he was forced out in 2001, told The Associated Press that he felt "unbelievable sorrow" when he learned of Frey's death.

"He was kind of like the James Dean of the band, the coolest guy. He was the leader and everybody looked up to him," Felder said Tuesday of Frey, who died Monday at age 67 after battling a variety of health problems. The two had clashed often, most memorably during a 1980 concert that led to the Eagles' initial breakup, but Felder said he remembered Frey most for the music they made together and for the "laughter and the parties."

"I had always hoped somewhere along the line, he and I would have dinner together, talking about old times and letting it go with a handshake and a hug."

As Felder recalled Tuesday, and wrote in his memoir "Heaven and Hell," Frey was the Eagle who called and invited him to join the band back in 1974. Originally a quartet featuring Frey and Don Henley, the band was turning from the country-bluegrass roots of its first two records and looking for a hard rock sound. Felder, an old friend of founding Eagle Bernie Leadon, played a session with the group and soon became a full-time member.

"The band wasn't about private jets and limos and the Ritz Carlton in those days," he said. "We were playing state fairs and colleges, driving rent a cars and flying coach."

Felder played on such million-selling albums as "One of These Nights," ''Hotel California" and "The Long Run." His greatest moment with the group was composing the musical for the title track to "Hotel California" and watching Henley's face light up when he listened to the demo. "Hotel California" became a signature song for the group, capped off by dueling solos between Felder and Joe Walsh.

But from the start there was tension, brought on unintentionally by Felder. Leadon had a background in country and bluegrass and became unhappy with the Eagles' new direction. By 1975, he had left and was replaced by another rock guitarist, Walsh.

Founding bassist Randy Meisner clashed with Frey during a show in 1977 and soon quit, succeeded by Timothy B. Schmit. Felder had his own conflicts, in part from his desire to write and sing more, and in 1980 almost came to blows with Frey after a concert in Long Beach, California.

The band reunited in 1994, but Felder would clash with Frey and Henley about money and he was fired in 2001. Legal action followed, settled out of court, but Frey and the other Eagles cut off ties to Felder. He said Tuesday that he had not been in contact for years with Frey, Henley, Walsh or Schmit despite efforts to reach them.

After finding out Frey was dead, he did receive a call from Meisner, who has had his own health battles in recent years.

"He was in tears," Felder said.

She's a restless spirit on an endless flight (Definitely Not suitable for kids)(For Mature Audience only)

Eagles ---Witchy Woman

Raven hair and ruby lips
sparks fly from her finger tips
Echoed voices in the night
she's a restless spirit on an endless flight
wooo hooo witchy woman, see how
high she flies
woo hoo witchy woman she got
the moon in her eye
She held me spellbound in the night
dancing shadows and firelight
crazy laughter in another
room and she drove herself to madness
with a silver spoon
woo hoo witchy woman see how high she flies
woo hoo witchy woman she got the moon in her eye
hahahahaaaaaaaa
Well I know you want a lover
let me tell your brother, she's been sleeping
in the Devil's bed
And there's some rumors going round
someone's underground
she can rock you in the nighttime
'til your skin turns red
woo hoo witchy woman
see how high she flies
woo hoo witchy woman
she got the moon in her eye

Mr. Bob Dylan--Roll On, John

From Folksinger's Choice with Cynthia Gooding (1962)

Roll, roll on John,
Don't you roll so slow
How can I roll when the wheels won't roll?

I asked that girl, won't you be my wife?
She fell on her knees, she began to cry

The more she cried, the worse I felt
Till I thought my heart would melt

I looked at the sun was a-sinking low
I looked at my baby, she was a-walking down the road

I looked at the sun was a-turning red
I looked at my baby, but she bowed her head

Don't the sun look lonesome, oh lord lord lord, on the graveyard fence?
Don't my baby look lonesome when her head is bent?

Roll on John, don't you roll so slow
How can I roll when the wheels won't roll

Roll on John, don't you roll so slow
How can I roll when the wheels won't roll

The 2016 Golden Globe Nominees and Winners by Cady Drell, posted Jan. 10, 2016

The Golden Globes are over for another year, with all eyes now looking ahead to the Academy Awards in February.

The Globes, which were handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Sunday night, featured both television and film, making for an engaging event. After all, 2015 was a banner year for independent cinema that packed a wallop (Carol, The Danish Girl, Room), surprisingly poignant blockbusters (Mad Max, The Martian, Creed) and movies we only heard about because we wrote this list (Infinitely Polar Bear, The Lady in the Van, 99 Homes). Plus, TV hasn't had a more riveting year since 1939, when Peter Carl Goldmark invented the Ionoscope sensor.

Leonardo DiCaprio snagged Best Actor in a Motion Picture-Drama for The Revenant, giving him a slightly better chance at his much-awaited Oscar next month. He's been overlooked five times at the Academy Awards.

The evening promised some drama, with Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, who played opposite one another in Carol as two women who fall in love against the backdrop of 1950s Manhattan, both nominated in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama category. The HFPA made voters choose one or the other, but all that did was cancel them out. The prize went to Brie Larson for Room.

Ana Ivanovic (SPOX)

Ana Ivanovic hat sich geschockt vom schweren Sturz einer Zuschauerin während des Zweitrunden-Matches der 27-jährigen Serbin bei den Australian Open am Donnerstag in Melbourne gezeigt.

"Ich habe den Schlag gehört, er war wirklich laut und ich war geschockt. Ich habe gezittert", sagte die an Position 20 gesetzte Ivanovic nach ihrem 6:3, 6:3 gegen Qualifikantin Anastasia Sevastova (Lettland).

Eine Besucherin war auf den Treppen der Rod-Laver-Arena mehrere Meter tief gestürzt und auf den Kopf gefallen. Das Match wurde daraufhin für knapp 35 Minuten unterbrochen, damit die Verunglückte von Ärzten und Sanitätern behandelt werden konnte. "Uns wurde gesagt, dass sie atmet. Ich hoffe, ihr geht es bald wieder gut", sagte die ehemalige French-Open-Siegerin Ivanovic.

ABBA (AFP)



33 Jahren nach ihrer Trennung ist die legendäre schwedische Popgruppe ABBA wieder vereint gewesen - zumindest für einen Abend. Die vier Musiker kamen am Mittwoch zur Eröffnung eines Restaurants in der schwedischen Hauptstadt Stockholm. Pianist Benny Andersson erteilte einer Wiedervereinigung des Erfolgsquartetts aber eine Absage: Er glaube nicht daran, dass er noch einmal mit den anderen ABBA-Mitgliedern auf einer Bühne stehen werde, sagte er auf die Frage eines Reporters.

"Wir sind hier, um zu feiern", fügte sein früherer Bandkollege Björn Ulvaeus hinzu. Zu der Party im Restaurant "Mamma Mia", das nach dem gleichnamigen ABBA-Hit benannt ist, kamen die vier Musiker getrennt und ließen sich auch nicht zusammen fotografieren.

Die vier Mitglieder der weltweit erfolgreichen Popgruppe - Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Fältskog - trennten sich Anfang der 80er Jahre und traten seither nie mehr gemeinsam auf. Ihre Hits wie "Dancing Queen" oder "Waterloo" hatten in den 70er Jahren die Diskoszene dominiert. Die Band löste sich 1983 auf. Zusammen gesehen worden waren die vier Musiker zuletzt im Jahr 2008.


All the best guys. God bless.

21st Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards by Shane Lou, posted Jan. 18, 2016


The winners were announced Sunday night at the 21st Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards, presented by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association, live from Santa Monica, California., hosted by "Silicon Valley" actor T.J. Miller.

"Spotlight" won the top prize, Best Picture, in addition to Best Acting Ensemble. "The Revenant's" Leonardo DiCaprio and "Room" star Brie Larson were named Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively. Neither DiCaprio nor Larson was in attendance, though DiCaprio delivered a pre-recorded message.


After neglecting to acknowledge his "Creed" director Ryan Coogler and co-star Michael B. Jordan during his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes last week, Sylvester Stallone made a point of saluting both while receiving Best Supporting Actor honors.

Amy Schumer was in the spotlight not once, but twice, nabbing the award for Best Actress in a Comedy, for "Trainwreck," as well as the Critics' Choice MVP Award. She began her lengthy speech for the latter by introducing herself as "plus-plus-size actress Amy Schumer," before thanking "Trainwreck" director Judd Apatow and the managers she has fired, saying hello to her boyfriend, Ben Hanisch, and stressing the need to end gun violence.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" director J.J. Abrams presented George Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic with the Critics' Choice Genius Award. The segment featured an onstage appearance by the BB-8 droid robot from the latest "Star Wars" film.

"Mad Max: Fury Road" won several technical awards, plus acting honors for Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in the action movie categories. On the TV side, "Mr. Robot" earned a handful of prizes, including Best Drama Series.
