Friday, Nov 8

Morgan Murphy
Listen, I’m not saying that Portland is entirely responsible for the success of Morgan Murphy’s career as a stand up and a comedy writer. But isn’t it interesting that she was born here and then went on to great acclaim as a writer for both Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talk shows and popular CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls? That’s not even counting her work on stage where she redefines deadpan delivery for our modern hyperbolic age. All I’m saying is that Portland made Morgan Murphy, and I’m hoping she does the right thing by acknowledging that this weekend. (Fri-Sat Nov 8-9, 7:30 pm & 10 pm, Helium Comedy Club, $17-33) ROBERT HAM

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! When the annual HUMP! amateur porn fest rolls into town, you know you’re going to be in for a hot time in the old town tonight. Don’t miss 21 new, sexy five-minute dirty flicks made by your friends and neighbors here in the Pacific Northwest that represent every stripe of sexual persuasion. Plus you get to vote on the lucky winners who will take home thousands in sweet cash MONEY. Get ready to laugh, squeal, and feel super tingly (down there) because HUMP! audience members have the time of their lives. But don’t delay, tickets for these shows are hotter than what you’ll see onscreen! (Fri-Sat Nov 8-9, 6:30 pm & 9 pm, Revolution Hall, $20-25, through Nov 23) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Mikal Cronin, Shannon Lay
Mikal Cronin possess the uncanny knack for penning effortless-sounding pop gems. On his fourth record, Seeker, he mines his self-introspection and the comeback from a bad case of writer’s block with convincing aplomb, conjuring Tom Petty melodies on the single “Show Me” with help from Ty Segall’s Freedom Band (of which he is a card-carrying member). There’s a lot of inferno-inspired writing coming out of California following last year’s devastating wildfires, and Seeker is no different, exploring ideas of rebirth from destruction. Cronin seems a gentle soul armed with the ability to pull wisdom from a chaotic world. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Mississippi Studios, $15-17, all ages) RYAN J. PRADO

Lit Crawl Portland
A boozy jaunt to literary parties all throughout downtown's bars and other nontraditional venues for readings, including stops at the Dorsa Brevia, Kickstand Comedy, Oregon Humanities, Literary Arts, The Big Legrowlski, Valentine's, and more! Click here for a complete schedule and list of participating venues. (Fri Nov 8, 6 pm, Various Locations, free)

David Sedaris
If you think you’re too cool for David Sedaris—the first of his name, brother of Amy, author of NPR’s old reliable holiday mainstay (c’mon, the Santaland Diaries is GOOD) and such humorist delights as Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim—you’re lying to yourself and you need to stop. Sedaris’ dry wit is indispensable in trying times. Go get some! (Fri Nov 8, 7:30 pm, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, $32.50-57.50) MEGAN BURBANK

Twin Peaks
Chicago-hailing garage rockers Twin Peaks return to town for an all-ages, headlining show supporting their latest album, Lookout Low. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $18-20, all ages)

Little Hurricane
With the weather growing colder and the sun going down earlier, now is the perfect time for discovering new music at home, especially when the artist in question—dirty blues band Little Hurricane—provides ideal background music for nocturnal snuggling on the couch. Their minimalist blues-rock has been the soundtrack of five Taco Bell commercials, which, as a cheap-burrito lover, almost makes me love the San Diego duo even more. The only thing better than a Friday night is one spent listening to Little Hurricane’s lo-fi sounds. Check out songs like “Haunted Heart,” “Sun Sets West,” and “Give ’em Hell,” and prepare yourself for one mother of a staycation. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Doug Fir, $20-23) KATHERINE MORGAN

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Brooklyn Nets
The Trail Blazers return home for a Friday night game against Kyrie Irving and the new-look Brooklyn Nets. (Fri Nov 8, 7 pm, Moda Center, $31 & Up, all ages)

Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage, Wuhlux
What can’t Jeffrey Lewis do? He’s the world’s leading authority on Watchmen, a noted comic book artist, and a brilliant (anti-) folk singer and lyricist. Catch up with him tonight when he brings the latest iteration of his band through the Fixin' To for a Friday-night performance that's guaranteed to lift your spirits heading into the weekend. (Fri Nov 8, 8 pm, The Fixin' To, $10)

IRCO Fundraiser
A benefit concert for the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization, featuring performances from The Vagilantes, Mess Machine, Charley No Face, and Fake News. (Fri Nov 8, 8 pm, Twilight Cafe & Bar, $8)

Alaska Thunderfuck & Jeremy Mikush: Amethyst Journey Live
RuPaul's Drag Race all-star Alaska Thunderfuck and her longtime collaborator Jeremy Mikush bring their newly-minted musical duo through the Aladdin Theater for the Portland stop on a tour supporting their new album, Amethyst Journey. (Fri Nov 8, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $40-100, all ages)

Moonchild, Kiefer
Soul'd Out presents a headlining set with Los Angeles trio Moonchild, who bring their jazzy blend of R&B and soul back to the Star Theater stage in support of their latest album, Little Ghost. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Star Theater, $23-25)

Monsters of Rock PDX
Monsters Of Rock PDX returns to the stage for the first time in 4 years to head up a benefit show for local musician Merrill Hale and his battle with ALS. Expect to hear covers from the likes of Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Thin Lizzy, and more, with sets spanning the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, and 2000s. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Dante's, $20)

Saturday, Nov 9

The Portland Book Festival
This one-day book fair and live reading / discussion event used to be called Wordstock, but no one can deny that Portland Book Festival has grown into its own cool beast. Since it’s only one day, it’s easy to splurge on a bunch of books, get them signed by your favorite authors, and sit in on a talk or two. Then you still have Sunday for laundry and “Book Church,” which is what I call making too much breakfast and sitting around with a huge pile of unread books. If you like the sound of this, but also want to get wild, make sure to scope the always boozy, popular Lit Crawl the night before. (Sat Nov 9, 9 am, Portland Art Museum, $15-20, all ages) SUZETTE SMITH

The Pacific Crest Comedy Fest
Portland’s comedy scene is bonkers (bonkers GOOD) which is why the addition of a brand-new comedy festival that features the greatest comedians from around town and across the nation is very welcome indeed! It’s the Pacific Crest Comedy Fest, featuring Steph Tolev and Maggie Maye; hometown gals made good Caitlin Weierhauser, Bri Pruett, and Amy Miller; local heavy hitters Nariko Ott, Amanda Arnold, Shain Brenden, Kate Murphy, Amanda Arnold; and many more! But that ain’t all: Expect awesome podcasts and regular shows like Earthquake Hurricane, Minority Retort, Speechless, the return of Lez Stand Up, pant, pant, pant… TOO MANY TO MENTION! Good god, that’s a lot of laughs in a short amount of time. (Sat-Sun Nov 9-10, Siren Theater) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Yung Bae, Birocratic
Portland producer Yung Bae brings an array of future funk and disco jams out to Holocene for a two-night hometown stand. (Sat-Sun Nov 9-10, 9 pm, Holocene, $13-17)

Robert Forster
The last time Robert Forster was in the Northwest, it was as a member of the Go-Betweens, performing in Seattle in 2005 during what would become that venerable pop group’s final tour. (Forster’s longtime musical partner Grant McLennan passed away suddenly a year later.) Much has happened in his life since then, including a regular gig as a music critic, an impassioned memoir about his work with McLennan, and three fantastic solo albums. His most recent, Inferno, finds Forster in peak form, with a folk-pop backing band, ambling through his back pages and unblinkingly facing his waning years with grace. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Mississippi Studios, $22-25) ROBERT HAM

Dune Rats
Brisbane-based garage punk trio Dune Rats comes back to Portland for a night of boisterousness finely honed down under. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, Bunk Bar, $15)

The I, Anonymous Show
Fuck off, Avengers! When it comes to once-in-a-lifetime superhero team-ups, NOBODY can compete with the lineup of comics that are assembling for the next installment of the Mercury’s beloved I, Anonymous Show! This time around—and in conjunction with the Pacific Crest Comedy Fest—our live show will feature host Kate Murphy, former host Bri Pruett, and former host Caitlin Weierhauser! AND they’re bringing along the hilarious Steven Wilber for the ride! In other words? If you want top-notch comics reading and reflecting on some of the Mercury’s funniest, weirdest, creepiest, and (very occasionally) sexiest submissions to our popular I, Anonymous column, you can’t do any better. And who knows, maybe Hawkeye will show up too. Not like he’s got anything better to do. (Sat Nov 9, 6 pm, Siren Theater, $10) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Max Bemis, Perma, Museum Mouth
Say Anything frontman Max Bemis steps out for a solo show at the Hawthorne Theatre, with Perma and Museum Mouth on-hand to round out the all-ages bill. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, $19-23, all ages)

Del McCoury Band, The Jacob Joliff Band
Del McCoury's band is a well-oiled machine of precisely plucked strings and high lonesome vocals that should sound positively divine bouncing around the Aladdin Theater tonight. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $42.50-45, all ages) BEN SALMON

Matt Andersen, Gaby Moreno, Liz Vice
The Canadian guitarist and singer/songwriter out of New Brunswick brings his brand of blues through Portland as part of the "Roots Rising" Tour, with Guatemala-hailing folk and blues artist Gaby Moreno and Portland gospel and R&B singer/songwriter Liz Vice rounding out the bill. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, Star Theater, $20)

NW Food & Wine Festival
Three of the greatest things on the planet, all at the same time? Food, Wine, and the Northwest combine for a full day of deliciousness, with over 600 wines available to sample, and bites from over 50 restaurants to enjoy. There's beer too, because it's an event in the Northwest so that means there's beer somewhere in there. (Sat Nov 9, 4 pm, Oregon Convention Center, $75-95)

Patrick Sweany
The blues-rock singer/songwriter out of Massillon, Ohio brings his soulful sound back to town for an intimate Saturday-night show supporting his latest album, Ancient Noise. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Polaris Hall, 413-15)

Hell Hath No Funny
You can always count on Siren Nation coming through town and putting together one hell of a lady-centric night of comedy. This year's hell features stand-up sets from local all-stars Katie Nguyen, Susan Rice, Andy Iwancio, Quinne Salameh, and Katie Murphy. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, Alberta Street Pub, $12)

Sisters of the Road 40th Anniversary Fundraiser
The 40th anniversary of Sisters of the Road's founding is a momentous occasion, so big that only Darcelle XV could properly star in it, with special guests Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, and Sisters co-founder Genny Nelson. The evening will include speakers, musicians, performances, and more. (Sat Nov 9, 5 pm, Billy Webb Elks Lodge, $100)

Sunday, Nov 10

Little Brother
Fresh off the release of their latest album, May The Lord Watch, North Carolina-hailing rappers Phonte and Big Pooh bring their reunited hip-hop act to the Wonder Ballroom stage for an all-ages performance. (Sun Nov 10, 9 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $28-33, all ages)

Blitzen Trapper, The Parson Red Heads
The experimental, folk-country monster pairing of Blitzen Trapper and the Parson Red Heads alone would make for a formidable evening at Revolution Hall, but tonight’s all-ages, fully seated show has a more philanthropic bent. The concert will benefit Do Good Multnomah, a local nonprofit working to assist veterans with housing by way of “relationship-building, one-on-one engagement, supportive services, and direct community participation.” Both bands are staples of Portland’s psych-oriented roots-rock scene and have transcended the city’s confines with their last several albums. Check them out and help a good cause at the same time. (Sun Nov 10, 7 pm, Revolution Hall, $30, all ages) RYAN J. PRADO

Ariel Gore
Journalist, author, and teacher Ariel Gore returns with Hexing the Patriarchy, detailing over two dozen potions, spells, and magical elixirs in the form of a "magical guide to subverting manboy power, one spell at a time." Gore will be joined in conversation by More Bowstern, Sailor Holladay, Rhiannon Flowers, Felicity Artemis, Anna Doogan & Dani Burlison (Sun Nov 10, 7:30 pm, Powell's City of Books, free)

MusicPortland Gear Fest
Music advocacy program MusicFest takes over Polaris Hall to transform it into a celebration of Portland's music community; not just its performers, but the artists who make the actual instruments and gear those performers communicate with. (Sun Nov 10, noon, Polaris Hall, $5-6)

Taylor Tomlinson
Do you need love, or do you need carbs? Taylor Tomlinson says they’re basically interchangeable and anyone who’s ever had baked macaroni and cheese will confirm: carbs are flat-out better. But would we have put this hilarious truth together before Tomlinson swept in like a wildly funny eagle with that gag clenched in her razor-sharp talons? Things I have compared Tomlinson to: a joke-firing machine gun and a powerful eagle. Needless to say, I’m hella excited to hear this up and coming comedian tape her next Netflix special in OUR CITY. Prepare to hear all her best material because THIS is going to be on the internet! (Sun Nov 10, 5:30 pm & 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $20) SUZETTE SMITH

Sci-Fi Authorfest 13
Your chance to meet, mingle, and get books signed by Sci-Fi authors Terry Brooks, Robin Hobb, Brent Weeks, Fonda Lee, Sebastien de Castell, Shawn Speakman, Caitlin Starling, Jason Gurley, Curtis C. Chen, Brenda Cooper, Kevin James Breaux, Spencer Ellsworth, Ken Scholes, Devon Monk, and Emily Suvada. (Sun Nov 10, 4 pm, Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, free)

The Shivas, Cry Babe, Ex-Kids
Beloved Portland psych and garage rock outfit the Shivas swing through the Doug Fir to celebrate the release of their new Tender Loving Empire-issued album, Dark Thoughts, with like-minded locals Cry Babe and Ex-Kids rounding out the bill. (Sun Nov 10, 8 pm, Doug Fir, $10)

Mouthy Live
Piper Davis' podcast comes to the Nightwood Society for Native American Heritage Month, to talk about culture, tradition, history, and of course, food, with special guests Brigette and Sean McConville of Salmon King Catering. (Sun Nov 10, 3:30 pm, The Nightwood Society, $25)

Phenomenal Woman
Portland singer/songwriters LaRhonda Steele, Bre Gregg, Beth Wood, and Ara Lee James link up with a talented backing band to bring you an array of original music, along with tributes to greats like Nina Simone, Carole King, Etta James, Dolly Parton, Bonnie Raitt, Patty Griffin, Aretha Franklin, and Joni Mitchell. (Sun Nov 10, 7 pm, Alberta Rose Theatre, $20, all ages)

Sincerity is Gross: The Dirty Thirdiversary
James Barela's stand-up showcase makes it to its third year on this filthy planet, and if you thought this was the show where some sentimentality and (gasp) sincerity poked its head through the crust, you're pretty sadly fuckin' mistaken: Mr. Barela promises that when Anthony Desamito, Lance Edward, Dylan Carlino, Wendy Weiss, and Diana Potter all take the stage? They're comin' with their nastiest shit, son. (Sun Nov 10, 8 pm, The Slide Inn, free)

femme fataleDid you know that 9% of all women are evil witches while 12% are seductive thieves? Well, according to a study carried out by those lovable goons over at Casino Kings, most women are either killers, corrupt, or Glenn Close, but only when they appear on the silver screen and get paid for the privilege. Allegedly. I think. Touch wood. Fingers crossed. Please don’t kill me, Mummy. Ha!

Fetch Marvel API Heroes with MD5 Hash   


Hello, Developers.


I Need to fetch this API from Marvel Heroes using Swift 5 - MD5 or some type like that.


Marvel develper:

Authentication for Server-Side Applications

Server-side applications must pass two parameters in addition to the apikey parameter:

  • ts - a timestamp (or other long string which can change on a request-by-request basis)
  • hash - a md5 digest of the ts parameter, your private key and your public key (e.g. md5(ts+privateKey+publicKey)


For example, a user with a public key of "1234" and a private key of "abcd" could construct a valid call as follows: (the hash value is the md5 digest of 1abcd1234)



for a example only - I did it with JavaScript:


// Just a part of code... 
import md5 from 'js-md5';

// Get yours APIs key at
const PUBLIC_KEY = ''; // your public key
const PRIVATE_KEY = ''; // youur private key

export default function Heroes({ navigation }) {
  const [feedHeroes, setFeedHeroes] = useState([]);

  useEffect(() => {
      async function loadHeroesCharacters() {
        const ts = Number(new Date());
        const hash = md5.create();
        hash.update(ts + PRIVATE_KEY + PUBLIC_KEY);
        try {
          const response = await fetch(
            `{ts}&orderBy=name&limit=10&apikey=${PUBLIC_KEY}&hash=${hash.h ex()}`
// continue


From now on, I really need to make the same thing with Swift 5. I need to use URLSession and should not to use a another dependecies (CocoaPods) like Alomofire to fetch this API.

But how I use the MD5 - Hashing with Swift 5?


Is there somebody who could help me, please?

Sánchez da a entender que la Fiscalía sigue sus instrucciones en la euroorden para traer a Puigdemont a España   


El choque de Pedro Sánchez y los independentistas aumenta en la recta final de la campaña. El presidente en funciones ha endurecido la batalla legal y dialéctica contra ERC y JxCat. El último episodio comenzó en el debate electoral, cuando se comprometió a traer ante la justicia española a Carles Puigdemont, y ha continuado este miércoles al dar a entender que la Fiscalía ha seguido sus instrucciones al emitir la euroorden para la extradición del expresidente catalán. 

Sánchez aprovechó el debate para cuestionar la labor del PP al frente del Gobierno y, en concreto, de permitir que Puigdemont escapara. "Me comprometo aquí y ahora a traerlo y que sea juzgado por la justicia española", dijo con toda solemnidad. La afirmación fue polémica y el independentismo se revolvió. "¿Me va a secuestrar?", ironizó el expresidente de la Generalitat desde Bélgica. 

En una entrevista en RNE este miércoles, Sánchez ha sido interpelado por esa cuestión y ha defendido la labor de su Gobierno en esa dirección. "Lo estamos haciendo", ha dicho sobre el compromiso de traer a Puigdemont y, a partir de ahí, ha explicado que el juez instructor Pablo Llarena ha solicitado la euroorden contra él y otros exconsellers a instancias de la Fiscalía. "Eso es el Estado", le ha contestado el entrevistador. "¿La Fiscalía de quién depende?", ha rematado Sánchez. El Ministerio Público depende jerárquicamente del Ejecutivo, que designa al Fiscal General del Estado. 

"Estamos esperando a ver cuál es la decisión de la justicia belga", ha señalado Sánchez antes de afirmar: "Estamos haciendo que más pronto que tarde responda ante la justicia". Se ha mostrado convencido del compromiso que adquirió en el debate de que Puigdemont rinda cuentas ante los tribunales españoles. 

Aclaración de Sánchez horas después

Las palabras del presidente del Gobierno en funciones han caído como un jarro de agua fría en la Fiscalía. Las asociaciones de fiscales han reaccionado con dureza contra el líder socialista, que se ha visto horas más tarde y a cinco días de las elecciones obligado a aclarar sus palabras: "La Fiscalía cuenta con el respaldo del Gobierno en la defensa de la Ley y del interés general". Para ese momento, en el PSOE ya había cundido la preocupación por cometer un error y dar munición a los adversarios a las puertas de los comicios.

En las últimas semanas, el Gobierno ha ido endureciendo la posición respecto al independentismo intentando cercarlo en los tribunales. También aprobó un decreto ley para bloquear lo que Sánchez denominó la "república digital". Dos de sus principales anuncios durante el debate electoral también ponían en la diana a la Generalitat: incorporar en el Código Penal la convocatoria de referendos –que justifica en que el independentismo sostiene ahora que volverá a intentarlo– y "acabar con el sectarismo en TV3" mediante la elección de su consejo de administración por mayoría de dos tercios –algo que ya está vigente–. 

"Los independentistas no pueden darte estabilidad"

Esa posición ha incrementado el choque con el independentismo, que carga con dureza contra Sánchez. Gabriel Rufián, candidato de ERC que estuvo dispuesto a investirle tras el 28A, ha reconocido que están "molestos y enfadados" con el PSOE. "Insultó a la escuela pública catalana y a la radio televisión pública", ha apuntado en TVE. "Con este Sánchez no se puede dialogar, hay que debilitarlo. Si queremos un Sánchez mirando a la izquierda hay que derrotarlo, siempre que puede elegir mira a la derecha", ha remarcado.

También el líder de la formación, Oriol Junqueras, ha apuntado en el mismo sentido en una entrevista con Ser Catalunya: "No solo no tenemos nada que hablar, sino que nos tendrá delante"."Estamos más que hartos de sus amenazas y de su inmadurez política", le ha reprochado Junqueras a Sánchez.

En la entrevista en RNE, Sánchez ha disipado la duda que dejó en el debate en el que no quiso rechazar abiertamente el apoyo de las fuerzas independentistas en su investidura. "La estabilidad no te la pueden dar fuerzas independentistas", ha afirmado el candidato socialista, que ha cuestionado que Pablo Iglesias meta en la "ecuación" para un Gobierno de coalición a ERC o JxCat. 

"Somos un partido de izquierdas que aspira a gobernar desde la izquierda para toda España. ¿Las encuestas dicen que voy a tener mayoría absoluta con Iglesias? En la ecuación, ¿Iglesias a qué partidos está metiendo? ¿Tiene garantía de que las fuerzas independentistas van a abstenerse y garantizar la gobernabilidad? Tenemos que ser honestos y también en las sumas", ha explicado. 

Abstención de la derecha y "acuerdo parlamentario" con Iglesias

La fórmula que ve Sánchez es que PP y Ciudadanos se abstengan. "Les pedimos que se abstengan para facilitar el único gobierno posible, bueno, ¿qué problema hay?", se ha preguntado. En esa línea va su propuesta de que el resto de formaciones dejen gobernar a la lista más votada, que da por hecho que será el PSOE. 

Sin embargo, esa 'abstención técnica' no garantizaría la gobernabilidad puesto que no acarrearía una mayoría para sacar adelante los Presupuestos Generales del Estado. Para eso, Sánchez pretende mirar a Unidas Podemos, aunque descarta que forme parte de su gabinete basándose en las "discrepancias" que tienen en asuntos como el conflicto territorial. "Voy a buscar siempre el acuerdo parlamentario. El mejor acuerdo parlamentario es un acuerdo progresista", ha zanjado. 

Sánchez ha desechado la propuesta de Pablo Casado de dimitir si obtiene un escaño menos que en abril. "Me resulta curioso que tenga que asumir responsabilidades la principal fuerza que gana las elecciones", ha dicho Sánchez seguro de que los socialistas volverán a ganar los comicios, a pesar de que la cúpula asume ya que los resultados serán similares al 28A.

(rif. p.196)



I beni sono custoditi in FERMO (FM) e sono visionabili, senza alcun onere, previa richiesta da inviare tramite email a:, da far pervenire entro e non oltre 5 giorni antecedenti la data di vendita.


La gara si svolgerà in 2 Fasi
- la prima fase è la raccolta offerte telematica sul portale obbligatoria solo per chi volesse partecipare esclusivamente online;
- la seconda ed ultima fase è la gara fisica presso la sede dell’I.V.G. in contemporanea con il pubblico in remoto (Live Auction - asta in contemporanea) dal portale 
La migliore offerta ricevuta nel periodo dedicato alla “raccolta di offerte” sarà considerata il prezzo base della gara che si terrà comunque fisicamente in sala aste I.V.G.

Se non verranno presentate altre offerte in sala aste I.V.G, la migliore offerta ricevuta in via telematica diventerà automaticamente l’aggiudicazione finale.


Modalità di partecipazione (Live Auction - asta in contemporanea)

Per la partecipazione on-line alla gara è necessario iscriversi sul sito versando la cauzione a mezzo carta di credito o a mezzo bonifico, secondo le tempistiche dichiarate nella scheda pubblicitaria reperibile sul predetto sito

Partecipando alla gara on-line dichiaro sin d’ora che
1) la mia offerta è irrevocabile e valida fino ad aggiudicazione definitiva (cioè lotto consegnato) dei lotti di mio interesse;
2) mi impegno sin d’ora a corrispondere il prezzo lordo nella sua interezza, immediatamente, dalla comunicazione che mi verrà fatta con qualsiasi mezzo;
3) dò atto di essere stato informato che, in caso di mio inadempimento, l’I.V.G. potrà a titolo discrezionale dar corso all’annullamento della vendita e, a tale effetto, mi impegno sin d’ora in tal caso a sostenere le spese del nuovo esperimento di vendita che potrà essere disposto ai sensi dell’art. 540 c.p.c.;
4) dò atto di essere stato informato che la validità e l’efficacia della presente offerta sono subordinate alla completezza della documentazione richiesta, da far pervenire in allegato alla distinta di avvenuto bonifico assieme a:

  • copia fotostatica fronte/retro del documento d’identità in corso di validità;
  • visura ordinaria rilasciata dalla CCIAA non oltre tre mesi prima della presente offerta (solo in ……….caso di società);

    Disposizioni generali per la partecipazione le vendite giudiziarie 

sono regolate dagli Artt. 532 – 533 – 534 – 535 – 537 – 540 del c.p.c. dagli Artt.353, 354 c.p., dagli Artt. 2756 – 2761 c.c.

Chiunque, tranne il debitore, può partecipare alle aste purché munito di documenti di riconoscimento validi e non scaduti.

È obbligatoria l’identificazione dell’aggiudicatario 

Le aggiudicazioni e l’atto di trasferimento del bene possono essere formalizzati solo a persona presente riconosciuta dagli incaricati I.V.G. attraverso documenti di identificazione sopra detti. In deroga possono essere fatte aggiudicazioni ad utenti della piattaforma la cui registrazione risulta validata dalla piattaforma telematica.

Acquisto per società o per un terzo

Mentre è sempre possibile aggiudicare il bene alla propria ditta individuale, per un qualsiasi altro tipo di società sono necessari: una visura camerale (massimo di tre mesi) che attesti le qualifiche, i poteri di acquisto e la rappresentanza legale della persona nei confronti della società e/o la procura. In caso di persona munita di procura sarà necessaria anche la visura per il riconoscimento dei poteri del mandante.

Visione dei beni in vendita con la partecipazione alla gara l’offerente dà atto che il bene è visto e piaciuto.

Quindi appena individuato il lotto da acquistare è sempre meglio vederlo personalmente e testarlo; la visione dei lotti è un diritto che consente di avere una maggiore certezza del bene e delle sue caratteristiche. Infatti, dopo l’aggiudicazione non sarà possibile recedere dalla vendita giudiziaria non essendo tali vendite sottoposte alla garanzia per vizi occulti; ne consegue che eventuali mancanze, differenze, difformità, oneri di qualsiasi tipo, anche se occulti e non conoscibili, della cosa venduta non potranno dar luogo a risarcimenti, indennità o riduzioni di prezzo.

Al momento della vendita è emessa una Bolletta Ministeriale con la quale si trasferisce la proprietà del bene da un soggetto all’altro; è un atto pubblico che in caso di recesso si assoggetta alla Legge sulla turbativa delle aste Artt. 353 e 354 c.p.

Anche per questo motivo i beni in vendita in sala sono a disposizione dell’utenza negli orari indicati su ogni singola scheda.


Modalità saldo beni aggiudicati
Il saldo definitivo dei beni NON può esser effettuato ONLINE tramite carta di credito ma solo tramite bonifico o nei seguenti modi presso gli uffici dell’Istituto Vendite Giudiziaria delle Marche:

Il pagamento nelle forme suddette darà corso al rilascio della Bolletta Ministeriale (equivalente di una fattura con iva esposta) e alla consegna del bene.
Non saranno accettati acconti o cauzioni e forme di pagamento diverse da quelle su scritte.


Dichiarazione di vendita per i veicoli targati
Il verbale di vendita (o dichiarazione di vendita) è un atto pubblico emesso dall’I.V.G. che consente il passaggio di proprietà e l’eventuale richiesta dei documenti mancanti. La cancellazione della trascrizione del pignoramento e di altri eventuali gravami è a carico esclusivo dell’aggiudicatario. Qualora espressamente richiesto e previo corrispettivo, l’I.V.G. potrà ausiliare l’utenza nelle operatività di cancellazione dei predetti gravami.

Comment on Wednesday Weekly Roundup by Victoria Zigler (@VictoriaZigler)    


The only way I got even close to 5K most weeks this year is if you count blog posts and comments along with actual writing, so... Yeah. You're way ahead of me on word count, and have the excuse of travelling. I can't even use health as an excuse now I'm officially recovered from all that. I think I kind of pushed myself too hard while dealing with the health stuff though, so I'm not worrying about it too much for now. Planning to get back to my proper productivity starting in the new year. Hopefully by then these last couple of books will be sorted in audio too, so I can get a bit of a break from the publishing side of things while I work on just writing some stuff for a bit (which is probably also a contributing factor in my lack of productivity... I haven't had a single break from the publisher side of things in the last couple of years, because I've had the audiobooks on a production line... So glad I literally just have two more to get finished now, and one of those I should be getting the final version for in about a week). Glad you made some connections, even if Lucca Comics and Games didn't help you achieve anything else, and it rained a lot. Funny about your Mother worrying about losing you guys... I think it's a Mother thing worldwide. ;) We'd adopt you, only our place isn't big enough, and our laws are even less settled than yours at the moment with the whole Brexit thing and all. Kelly'd probably be glad for me to have someone else to talk about my writing to. Haha! Hey, if decluttering feels like the right thing to do, go with it. It can't hurt, and they say decluttering your home can help you declutter your mind too, so maybe it will help you figure things out.

How to Tell If Your College Football Team's Uniforms Are Gay

Wound Yd   


Hey, new comic. We purposefully waiting until our update day just to screw with you, our loyal fans who 4/5 of you probably never even saw this comic before! It was a long, harrowing few days, but we did it! Today's comic follows up from the one where Yd gets a bullet lodged in his knee. In case you were wondering. On a related note, the final panel is filled with images of what our artist claims he wants to do to me for making him work on this comic for 12 hours. I'm kinda scared!


Technical Training Specialist   


Tigerpaw is hunting for a customer-focused Technical Training Expert to join our overly caffeinated team of quirky, fun and friendly Tigers.
This person will help onboard our new customers to Tigerpaw with one-on-one phone calls, training, and regular communication. They will drive adoption of the platform by following a pre-designed launch plan to get our customers up and running and using our core products.
As part of the Customer Success Team, you will also have a hand in developing training and educational collateral that helps our customers learn more about Tigerpaw, find a better way of doing things in the platform, and all-in-all propel their business forward by ensuring they are getting the most out of their investment. Documents, webinars, flow charts, excel sheets, even online courses - any of these may be an option as we find ways to best help our clients succeed with Tigerpaw.
Maybe you're the Tiger we're looking for?
You will get to work with our senior trainers and technical writers to create compelling content that educates and delights our customers. However, remember that this is a customer-focused role first and foremost. The successful candidate for this role will have excellent communication skills, be able to multi-task, juggle competing priorities, use critical thinking to make best-judgement calls on elevating customer issues/concerns/lack of tigers in their office (we have been known to send random plush tigers to customers), and work to onboard our clients to the latest and greatest version of Tigerpaw, all while championing the benefits and features of our business automation platform. (It. Does. A. Lot.)
On any given day you may have multiple phone calls with a customer, work with new clients to find out what they want to get out of the product, check in with existing customers to see how they are doing with their software deployment plan, and answer emails for customers and internal Tigers (your co-workers). This role is designed for progression. As you learn more about Tigerpaw and how customers can best use it, you will have more opportunities to do specialized training courses, lead online webinars, and find additional ways to make our customers more successful.
This is a no-silo role where you are empowered to work cross-collaboratively throughout our organization to best set our customers up for success. Need input from development? Just walk down the hall and ask. Have a question from the sales team? They'll be happy to help! (Although a bit distracted if it's the end of the quarter.) You will also work closely with our Support Department and Customer Advocate teams to ensure your customers are getting everything they need to move forward. If you don't like talking with people, then these are not the droids you are looking for. Move along. Move along.
If this does sound like you, if you have a knack for taking the complex and distilling it down into easy-to-understand language, then why not throw your hat into the ring?
At Tigerpaw, we embrace the weird, the odd, the unusual, and the quirky. So much so that we even added "Quirky, Fun and Friendly" as one of our core values. (It's just above the unofficial core values of "Bacon"* and "Shenanigans.")
Summary and responsibilitiesTigerpaw is looking for a customer-focused Technical Trainer to act as our newest Lego Master team member. This person will: -- Coach customers on deploying Tigerpaw software within their organization -- Conduct online training sessions, including: Ask the Expert sessions (like a personalized coaching session with customers), client requested training, and coached software deployment plans. -- Write and update training related documentation and videos. -- Provide classroom training for both clients and internal employees. -- Travel occasionally for training or software deployment purposes - 15% (This year we sent some of our team to a big conference in Orlando: golfing, zip-lining, bowling, and bumper cars may have been involved.)
You may also be called upon to referee inter-departmental trivia contests and assist in the selection of beer and barbecue for team outings.
Qualifications and core competenciesThink you'd be a good fit to join our Streak of Tigers? Here's what we're looking for:-- 2+ years of training experience-- B.S. or B.A. degree from an accredited university or related experience (tell us why your skills make you a good fit for this role)-- Excellent presentation skills-- Great communication skills: verbal, written, smoke cloud-- Effective organization skills (you have a system to keep track of things and get them done)-- Great customer service skills (empathy, understanding, high-fives)-- Basic understanding of CRM software a plus-- Experience using Camtasia or other video editing software a plus -- Ability to establish and maintain a positive and productive working relationship with internal and external audiences-- Willing to work flexible work hours to meet the need of the business requirements, and your customers' businesses.-- Experience in Microsoft Office products: Word, Excel, etc. -- Valid driver's license and dependable transportation-- Comfortable presenting to groups up to 150 people-- Ability to set goals, take action, and achieve goals-- Ability to manage multiple projects-- Able to manage difficult or complex situations and people with tact, confidence, and diplomacy-- Maintain a helpful, professional, and casual relationship with clients (understanding that you will be working with a wide range of different people, titles, and personalities)-- Able to function independently with a minimum of structure-- Able to resolve problems and concerns related to tasks, projects and assignments in a timely and appropriate manner. (If you see you are getting off track, you are comfortable communicating that and seeking help from your team.)

Bonus! You identify with most or all of the following:-- You have a lifelong love of learning and you're not afraid to try new things.-- You can laugh at your mistakes and learn from them.-- You can laugh at your team's mistakes (with them; don't be a jerk), and positively encourage them to continue to DO THE THING!-- You understand what it means to be part of a no-ego team and you like the idea of getting to work with other fun, geeky, driven and productive professionals, multiple-disciplined thought leaders, and super nerds.-- You appreciate a good high-five from a teammate over a great idea or a completed project.-- You like the idea of trading in your blouses and blazers for wearing comic book, video game, or band shirts to work. (And you dig the idea of having a closet full of Tiger-themed work shirts - and yes, we have managed to create some that have a tiger wranglin' a dragon on them.)-- You can take constructive criticism and feedback professionally and use it to help the team.-- You want to learn how to do things better and you enjoy when a teammate shows you a new technique, strategy, shortcut, or random meme.-- You like Star Trek or Star Wars. There is no right answer, but you should probably have an opinion on the matter.-- You are excited to help your team and coworkers (and customers!), but you are also capable of handling your individual projects - and you are always focused on driving projects to completion and success.-- You think silos are incompatible in a modern workplace environment (read: they're stupid) and you welcome the opportunity to work in a no-silo environment where you are encouraged to work and play across department lines, roles, and titles.-- You have an upbeat attitude and you genuinely want to enjoy working with your team.-- The opportunity to be part of a dedicated team of passionate high-performers gets you excited. And the idea of being part of a modern workplace culture of empowered team members gets you pumped in a big way.-- You want to have fun, but also get $h!t done.
This position offers a competitive compensation package in a relaxed, quirky, fun and friendly company culture. You will be expected to dive in quickly, and you will have the backing and support of our entire team. (We may throw you into the deep end of the pool, but we'll give you metaphorical arm-floaty things.)
What are you waiting for? Let's hear your Tiger roar! (That means apply if you think this sounds like a cool gig - and we promise, it is.)
This exciting full-time position will report to our Director of Customer Success.
*Love of bacon is not a requirement for this position. We have several vegetarians and vegans on our team who we fully embrace as our tigery brethren and sistren.

Féminicides : mobilisation à Saint-Denis   


Contre les violences faites aux femmes, contre la répression et les intimidations.

À Saint-Denis (93), suite à l’assassinat de Leïla par son compagnon le 3 juillet dernier, une première manifestation, à l’appel de plusieurs organisations, avait regroupé plus de 500 personnes qui s’étaient rendues de la mairie au commissariat central pour crier leur colère devant l’indifférence et le manque de réactivité du commissariat. Leïla avait 20 ans et étudiait à l’université Paris 8. Sa mort, comme toutes les autres, aurait pu être évitée. La veille de son assassinat, elle avait alerté le commissariat de Saint-Denis des violences qu’elle subissait. L’idée de #BalanceTonComico et des rassemblements devant les commissariats est née de cette colère.

Détermination renforcée

Face à la violence du nombre grandissant des féminicides pendant l’été, à l’inaction masquée derrière un Grenelle sans moyens du gouvernement, un inter-collectif d’associations s’est regroupé autour des Dionysiennes pour appeler à deux autres manifestations, les 3 et 11 octobre 2019. C’est dans ce contexte qu’Amel Dahmani, secrétaire du syndicat Sud des communaux de la ville et co-organisatrice de la manifestation, a été convoquée à ce même commissariat, mardi 22 octobre au matin. Le motif (dépôt du parcours en retard et occupation de la voie publique) est apparu bien dérisoire au regard du grave sujet que sont les violences subies par les femmes et l’augmentation des féminicides.

Malgré le début des vacances scolaires et l’heure, 9 heures du matin, pour celles et ceux qui travaillent, ce sont plus de 150 personnes qui ont accompagné solidairement notre camarade et ont attendu sa sortie du commissariat. Une convocation et une mobilisation qui ont renforcé notre détermination à préparer localement et nationalement la journée internationale contre les violences faites aux femmes du 25 novembre prochain.

Aucune manœuvre d’intimidation et de répression n’empêchera le mouvement féministe et les organisations qui le soutiennent de manifester tant que dureront les violences sexistes et sexuelles qui détruisent et tuent des femmes et des enfants !

The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
Definitely a great movie to waste time on.

'Watchmen': todo el contenido extra de la serie de HBO que nos estamos perdiendo en España (y más países)   


'Watchmen': todo el contenido extra de la serie de HBO que nos estamos perdiendo en España (y más países)

Los que conocéis la obra de Alan Moore sabéis que no se queda contento si no inunda sus cómics de una cantidad ingente de material complementario. Largas parrafadas en forma de falsos artículos de periódicos, revistas o capítulos de libros que ponen aún más en contexto su obra, cubriendo y complementando aspectos que no ha podido tratar en viñetas.

Es algo que podemos leer perfectamente en ‘Watchmen’ y en la secuela televisiva de HBO no han querido ser menos y han puesto a disposición de sus espectadores la Peteypedia, una colección de material complementario que sirve para rellenar huecos y profundizar en el mundo propuesto por Lindelof. ¿El mayor problema? Que no se puede acceder desde España ni desde fuera de EEUU.

Resulta que desde hace unos meses la web oficial de HBO redirecciona a la de HBO España, por lo que si pones la dirección de esta Peteypedia (que alude al personaje interpretado por Dustin Ingram, al que hemos visto por primera vez en el tercer episodio) nos lleva a donde no queremos, ya que la web española carece de este tipo de contenidos.

De esta y de ninguna otra serie. Nos puede gustar más o menos la aplicación de HBO España, heredera de Nordic, como un servicio de vídeo bajo demanda con carencias “vitales” (como esta, o el tema de los inexistentes previouslys), pero casi lo que peor llevo es que todo lo que no sea el capítulo en sí de una serie es sistemáticamente ignorado por la plataforma, restringiendo así la experiencia del espectador y el nivel de obsesión que podríamos llegar a alcanzar con la serie.

Afortunadamente, a pesar de la ausencia de este contenido en español, sí que podemos acceder a los documentos alojados en dicha “Peteypedia” gracias a que los enlaces directos a los pdf no sufren los efectos de la redirección que hay en la web de HBO USA. Algo que, por lo que leo, sucede en otros territorios ajenos.

Así lo que hasta el momento nos encontramos es con estos pdfs en inglés, eso sí, que intentan responder cuestiones del mundo en el que Lindelof nos ha arrastrado:

Nota: evidentemente si no estáis al día con la serie, os encontraréis spoilers.

Episodio 1: Es verano y nos estamos quedando sin hielo

Watchmen 5 5dc1aa6f653fb

The computer and you: un memorandum directo de la mesa del director de FBI para los agentes ante la implementación de un sistema informático. En este documento podemos ver el miedo y la paranoia ludita causada por la catástrofe de Nueva York y cómo desde entonces se prohibió cualquier tipo de tecnología sospechosa de “disminuir” la membrana interdimensional o que provenga de Nueva York.

Tales of the Black Marshal nos cuenta la intrahistoria del clásico del cine mudo 'Trust in the Law', del que tenemos un vistazo nada más comenzar la serie, y cómo la película pudo inspirar a héroes de ficción posteriores como el Llanero Solitario.

Veidt declared death: un artículo realizado a tenor de la declaración legal por parte de organismos de tres continentes sobre la muerte de Veidt. Este artículo indaga en el millonario empresario y sus luces y sombras, incluyendo sus revolucionarios planes durante los noventa y su gradual reclusión hasta el punto de que parece haberse desvanecido por completo de la faz de la Tierra.

Veidt and Rorschach: Probablemente el documento más importante de esta primera tanda es este en el que el agente Dale Petey hace un perfil de ambos personajes de interés, su relación, la influencia y acusaciones del diario de Rorschach y eventos post “Watchmen” ante sus serias dudas del error que sería el abandonar la búsqueda de Veidt.

Episodio 2: Proezas de la caballería comanche

Watchmen 5dc1a9b131369

Tulsa Sheriff Chief Feared Slain: La noticia del periódico en el que se da a conocer la muerte del jefe Crawford nos pone en antecedentes familiares y, además, aclara un par de cosas respecto a la ley que permite a la policía llevar máscaras.

The Road to Reparations: Sumario judicial en torno al caso de los afectados por la masacre de Greenwood, es decir, la matanza de Tulsa de 1921, que supone el primer paso para las "reparaciones" y compensaciones económicas a las víctimas y familiares. Interesante para conocer el clima previo a ese fatídico día.

Masked Vigilantes in Pop Culture: El memorandum del agente Petey va en torno a la emisión de 'American Hero Story: Minutemen', la segunda temporada de la serie. Expresa su preocupación por lo que considera un ejercicio de historia falseada por guionistas de izquierdas en base a lo que se vio en la primera temporada (dedicada a Rorschach).

Episodio 3: La mató la basura espacial

Watchmen Hbo Hooded Justice American Hero Story

Four Letters Evidence: Una carta escrita entre compañeros del Klan. Dirigida al Sheriff Crawdford (abuelo del personaje interpretado por Don Johnson) proveniente del despacho de J. David Keene (el senador que promovió la famosa ley que proscribió el vigilantismo desde 1977) sobre el cuadro que da nombre al segundo episodio (Proezas de la caballería comanche). Sobre la firma del autor de la carta se encuentra la palabra Akia, acrónimo de "A Klansman I Am", una de las firmas comunes de los miembros del KKK.

New Frontiersman: Inflamado editorial que ni La Razón en sus mejores tiempos centrado, al menos al comienzo, en la nominación de John Grisham al Tribunal Supremo (al que no nombra, pero es autor de "La deposición pelícano") para desvariar sobre las elecciones 2020, las posibilidades de Keene para ser el nuevo Presidente y una aclamación del único ser que puede salvar el país: Dr. Manhattan.

Memo: AHS: El agente Petey ha podido ver los dos primeros episodios de 'American Hero Story: Minutemen' y está más preocupado que la semana pasada. A lo largo de dos páginas plasma sus observaciones sobre lo real y lo ficticio en torno a tres de los protagonistas: Justicia Encapuchada, El Comediante y Espectro de Seda y como parecen más inspirados por las memorias de Hollis que por la Historia en mayúsculas.

   What Does Crowdsourcing Really Mean?   


LCM note:  Karl Rove recently took to the WSJ to discuss how campaigns were changing.  One of his suggestions was that the traditional campaign structure would lose meaning and that individuals outside the structure would take a greater role.  Somewhat related, this is an old interview with Douglas Rushkoff about the original meaning and the very different popular understanding of the term "crowdsourcing."

From religion, novels and back again. The strength of community and the dangers of crowdsourcing

Sarah Cove Interviews Douglas Rushkoff via telephone on May 18, 2007

Douglas Rushkoff is an author, professor, media theorist, journalist, as well as a keyboardist for the industrial band PsychicTV. His books include Media VirusCoercionNothing Sacred: The Truth About Judaism (a book which opened up the question of Open Source Judaism), Exit Strategy (an online collaborative novel), and a monthly comic book, Testament. He founded the Narrative Lab at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program, a space which seeks to explore the relationship of narrative to media in an age of interactive technology.

We spoke about the notion of crowdsourcing, Open Source Religion, and collaborative narratives.

Sarah Cove: What is crowdsourcing for you?

Douglas Rushkoff: Well, I haven't used the term crowdsourcing in my own conversations before. Every time I look at, it rubs me the wrong way.

- Sans-faute à Quincampoix en soutien à Thibault   


Pour notre second tour de préparation avec Rafale à Quincampoix sur l'Ama 2, le petit brassard orange que je portais en soutien à Thibault s'est bien fait remarquer, de même que ma fantastique ponette !

Lors de notre retour du CCE de Vernoil, nous avons appris que Thibault Fournier avait eu un accident sur le concours de Pompadour (en se rendant sur le cross). Dans le coma, il a été évacué en hélicoptère vers l'hôpital de Limoges dans un état grave. Après ce qui est arrivé à Thaïs, toute la famille du complet s'est mobilisée pour soutenir Thibault et sa famille en portant un brassard orange sur les concours. C'est ce que j'avais décidé de faire sur le CSO de Quincampoix.
photo : Ellen Photographie

Nous avions vu que Pauline était engagée dans la même épreuve que moi, en Ama 2. Nous avions appris que Jean-Pierre serait présent sur le concours, ce qui a décidé mon père à nous accompagner.

Nous sommes arrivés en milieu de journée. Ayant le n°7, il me fallait préparer Rafale avant la reco. Quand nous avons rejoint le site, nous n'avons rencontré personne de connaissance, pas même mon coach. Au point de nous demander si nous ne nous étions pas trompés d'horaire !  Après vérification sur Internet, il était bien le moment de descendre Rafale du van.  Laurent est arrivé à la fin de ma préparation et je lui ai demandé si ça ne le gênait pas que je porte le brassage en soutien à Thibault. J'ai vite mis le filet à Rafale car la sonnerie annonçait le début de la reconnaissance. De son côté, Papa avait déjà retrouvé son copain Jean-Pierre. 

Le tour était à 115 (afin de préparer notre retour sur 120 au Touquet la semaine d'après). Après un début classique, je devais prendre une option après le double pour attaquer une ligne vertical, six foulées, oxer. Avec Rafale, Laurent me conseillait plutôt sept foulées. Le chrono commençait à la fin de cette ligne. Je devais tourner direct après le 6 pour prendre le 7 de biais. Cela me permettrait de tourner encore ensuite le plus court possible pour aborder un oxer.
Je devais m'appliquer ensuite pour faire un tracé propre et aborder correctement le second double. Je continuais ensuite avec de nouvelles courbes très serrées pour terminer le parcours. 

Pendant ma reco, mes parents s'étaient relayés pour marcher Rafale, j'ai pu me mettre rapidement au travail. La ponette était bien. En ce moment, à la détente, elle ne cherche plus à sauter 60cm au-dessus de l'obstacle, elle se contente de la hauteur qu'il faut. Comme souvent en Amateur, j'étais sur le seul poney et on me regardait bizarre. Le tour n'était pourtant pas d'une hauteur terrible qui aurait gêné un poon's de participer !

Ça a vite été à moi d'entrer. J'ai montré quelques difficultés à la jument, les combi, les oxers que j'allais prendre de biais... Laurent m'avait dit de l'emmener reconnaître ces courbes mais pas de façon aussi serrée qu'on allait les suivre pour ne pas qu'elle anticipe trop !

En début de tour, Raf m'écoutait très bien. En ce moment, comme les tours ne sont pas encore trop gros, sur l'entrée des combinaisons, je ne sais pas trop comment entrer et je rajoute une foulée. Pour sortir du premier double, la pépette a dû accélérer un peu. Pour aller sur le vertical suivant, j'ai rajouté encore une foulée, par rapport à ce que Laurent m'avait conseillé. Je me suis dit qu'il fallait que je prenne plus de galop et j'ai d'ailleurs entendu mon coach siffler pour m'encourager dans ce sens.

Au moment de tourner plus serré, la jument m'obéissait toujours très bien, elle n'a pas trop essayé de couper le tournant. Je suis arrivée correctement sur le second double alors que beaucoup de cavaliers, à cet endroit, n'arrivaient pas à prendre le bon axe. Par contre, j'ai encore rajouté une foulée... La fin du tour, super.

J'ai pris provisoirement la première place du concours mais il restait plus de 60 concurrents à passer, ça allait forcément évoluer car je n'avais pas été très vite. J'étais contente de ce tour même si je savais que Laurent allait encore me dire que j'en avais fait trop...

Quand je suis ressortie de la carrière, j'ai entendu le commentateur parler de mon petit brassard orange « que Laurène arbore en soutien à Thibault Fournier, le jeune cavalier de concours complet accidenté il y a une semaine, et à sa famille ». J'étais heureuse que l'information ait pu être passée à tous.
J'ai fait un grand tour du centre équestre pour faire récupérer Rafale. 

On est resté pour voir passer Pauline . Et on a attendu la remise des prix, j'ai rétrogradé dans le classement mais suis restée aux récompenses, 8e.  Quand je suis venue récupérer les lots, le speaker a encore parlé de Thibault. Merci pour lui !




Rafael del Barco Carreras

Barcelona 7-11-2019. Ayer me atreví demasiado fotografiando. Era evidente que los 'oprimidos' acumulan combustible para se supone las hogueras que han de impedir que los antidisturbios levanten manu militari su organizada acampada. Fui tan imprudente que un mozalvete con pinta de 'profesional' de la lucha callejera me gritó ¡¡¡fotos no!!! "dame el móvil nazi de mierda", mientras extendía un gruesa cuerda de árbol a árbol cortando la calzada principal de la Gran Via.

La foto tenía mala intención. Ahora le diría que no se preocupe que mi blog apenas se encuentra por el 'hackeo' ordenado por sus 'nazis' jefes, y que además ya ni le recuerdo. No sé que le contesté, pero si no diré que salí corriendo, si lo sificiente para escapar de varios 'oprimidos', tipo 'perchas', que se dirigían hacia mí. Las piernas demostraron que aun dan de sí, y me perdí entre los muchos paseantes. Por supuesto no volveré por la Plaza Universidad mientras dure la situación. Situación que no creo dure hasta que liberen a sus adorados 'presos políticos', ni menos hasta la declaración de la República de Cataluña. Otro inútil cuadro, o acto de la comedia del absurdo. Recuerdo que en la Plaza Cataluña de los 'indignados' del Mayo del 2011 donde fotografié a placer nadie me prohibió 'hacer fotos'.  

La escena de acumulación de madera y cartón iniciada mínimo anteayer se realiza tan a la vista, y ya abultan tanto, que me extraña la pasividad de las patrullas de Mossos y Guardia Urbana que se pasean y circulan por la plaza, así como 'infiltrados' que sin duda los hay. Ni menos los equipos de limpieza del Ayuntamiento. Presumo que Via Layetana fuera un ensayo, y que en Plaza Universidad gozarán de un aquelarre propio de una noche de San Juan o de fallas de gran impacto. Los contenedores repletos de cartón y conglomerado o algún mueble presagian un gran espectáculo.


Mi escrito de ¡¡¡hace 5 años!!!

viernes, 7 de noviembre de 2014

Barcelona 7-11-2014. Me han llamado por teléfono preguntándome si sé donde ir a votar, y al responder que no, me preguntan la dirección. Mi amigo contestó la calle de su domicilio, y al insistir con el número, añadió... que hasta aquí habíamos llegado. El voluntario propagandista dijo comprender, y colgó soltando que ya la tenía. Mi amigo se subía por las paredes, en tiempos ordenó que su teléfono no apareciera ni en el listín telefónico, pero era evidente que aparecía en otros listados que ahora manejan "voluntarios civiles", incontrolados de cualquier pelaje captados por esa oscura Asamblea Nacional Catalana. El derecho a la privacidad, y el tan cacareado organismo de “protección de datos”… a hacer gárgaras.  
Alargamos la conversación con las chorradas propias entre íntimos, a él como a mí le interesaba más la deriva de los Pujol, o cómo han arruinado Cataluña, que la total oscuridad creada por la cortina de humo independentista. No es que no supiera donde ir a votar, es que ni quería hacerlo. Insisto, a la mayoría absoluta de los catalanes nos importa un pito el cuento del 9N, aunque parece vital para no más de uno a dos millones. Pero a la mayoría de esa “mayoría absoluta” de los sin voz nos inquieta el final del cuento. Nos cuesta imaginar que a la actual quiebra por expolio le suceda un viaje a ÍTACA, o sea al Averno.  
La conversación acabó con el inmediato ingreso en prisión de los “Núñez y Navarro”. El Caso Hacienda de Barcelona. Otra institución podrida de arriba abajo, corrompiendo y corrompida, y como dijo Borrell, el exministro de Hacienda, testigo cuando debiera sentarse en el banquillo, el “todo Madrid sabía” que el Delegado de Hacienda en Barcelona y su Jefe de Inspección invertían en Bolsa, por supuesto añado con “información privilegiada” por lo que oí en el propio juicio.
 Otro destrozado sumario tras quince años de instrucción que al igual que el de Banca Catalana hubiera acabado con todo el Clan Pujol. Incluir, por las recalificaciones y dobles y triples precios de los terrenos de Diagonal Mar (se citan en el sumario hasta día y hora en el notario) a su hombre de paja John Rosillo (fallecido oportunamente en Panamá), sin citar a los hijos Pujol, y al propio padre, dejaba buena parte del sumario en la incomprensión. Hasta a Javier de la Rosa declaran inocente tras nueve meses de juicio donde Suiza parecía situada a la vuelta de la esquina. Tampoco ningún acusado por Caixa Cataluña en cuyas vacías carpetas de crédito figuraba  por único estudio el “amigo de…”, según confesaron como testigos los propios empleados firmantes de esas carpetas. Prenafeta, también apareció por unos pagos irregulares de la Generalitat… no recordaba nada ¡hacía 20 años!
De aquellos lodos… Rull, coordinador general de CDC,  afirma que habrá urnas,  y Junqueras, el “cabeza de la Oposición en el Parlament”,  se relame con su hoja de ruta hacia la independencia a partir del lunes 10. Si Dios no lo remedia, y soy de los convencidos de que no se mete en estos berenjenales de la deficiente raza humana, tendremos un profesor de Historia Medieval Catalana al frente de los nuevos almogávares conquistando hasta Atenas, tras ocupar Sicilia e Ítaca. Su ilusión de reescribir una historia que por lo visto nunca le agradó. Ignoro que dirían los psiquiatras, pero como catalán de a pié, me crea cierta inquietud.
Ítaca y los Paisos Catalans, el 9N, el derecho a decidir, aplastando el “derecho a conocer” que tenemos todos los catalanes  apaleados por tanto cretino al mando en esa Autonomía convertida en un práctico e impenetrable Estado, o en la Cueva de Alibabá.
Insisto, repito y repetiré; yo, antes de que me lleven a Ítaca, quiero saber quién y cuánto se repartían por las libertades, terceros grados, ¡y permisos! de aquella Modelo de los 90. O sea, quién convertía a un sinvergüenza abogado Piqué Vidal, y un simple juez de instrucción Pascual Estevill, en los dueños de vidas y haciendas de docenas ¡o centenares! de desgraciados extorsionados, por suerte algunos tan poderosos que acabaron ¡sólo! con juez y abogado. Y de atenernos al artículo de otro tétrico personaje “Pilar Rahola”  (La Gran Corrupción: II. PILAR RAHOLA 04 Abr 2008 “Lo sabía toda Barcelona”) conocer los nombres de esos “Toda Barcelona” que me temo coincidan con las flor y nata de los vividores del independentismo, encabezados entonces ¿y ahora?, por el tenebroso Jordi Pujol.

"En el debate del lunes, fueron Pedro Sánchez y la oposición constitucionalista quienes, en franca competencia con Vox, subieron el tono a la hora de proponer mano dura contra el independentismo, sin representación en el plató de la Academia de la Televisión. Así que este martes, a modo de reacción y salvado ya el ecuador de la campaña, tocaba turno para el soberanismo, que, a cinco días de los comicios, también elevó el volumen del ruido de sables.
Dos reacciones airadas y desafiantes del Parlament y el govern a sendas maniobras del gobierno activadas este martes sintetizan esa dinámica propia de un pulso cronificado."

"El presidente de Ciudadanos en el Parlament, Carlos Carrizosa, ha opinado este martes que el presidente de la Generalitat, Quim Torra, y el del Parlament, Roger Torrent, lanzan consignas de "insurrección" contra el rey Felipe VI desde la cámara catalana que luego se ejecutan "en la calle".
Carrizosa ha protagonizado este martes un acto de campaña en el Born de Barcelona bajo el lema "Cataluña es España", junto a la candidata del partido naranja por Barcelona al Congreso, Carina Mejías, o el concejal en el ayuntamiento de Barcelona Paco Sierra, entre otros dirigentes.
Durante su intervención en el acto, Carrizosa se ha pronunciado en estos términos tras los incidentes registrados anoche en las inmediaciones del Palacio de Congresos, donde la familia real participaba en la entrega de los Premios Princesa de Girona."

 "La cabeza de lista de En Comú Podem en Girona para las elecciones generales del 10 de noviembre, Laura López, ha levantado cierta controversia entre sectores independentistas por una entrevista publicada en el 'Diari de Girona' en la que afirma, al ser preguntada por si Puigdemont es un líder, que "es un vivales"."

hung by legs abuse

Girl tied at base of leg and hung. Her leg turns dark red. She gets ropes everywhere on her body. Her boobs are tied till they are red and pulled in many directions with other ropes behind her chest and in a loop from her shoulders to her crotch. A pan filled with rocks is tied to her chin, pulling down. Her face is red and she pukes blood into the pan. Her boobs bleed because they are tied so tight.


Margarita es la nueva secretaria de Educación del PLD; fueron elegidos otros 18 secretarios   


Santo Domingo, República Dominicana (EFE y otros servicios de Cedeño, la vicepresidenta de la República, será la nueva Secretaria de Educación del oficialista Partido de la Liberación Dominicana (PLD), entidad que en la noche de este lunes nombró a los sustitutos de las secretarías que quedaron vacantes tras la renuncia de los dirigentes que se fueron tras la salida de Leonel Fernández de esa organización.
El órgano de dirección peledeísta decidió rechazar la renuncia del senador Euclides Sánchez a sus funciones de secretaria de asuntos gremiales y profesionales del PLD, «por lo cual él se mantiene en ese cargo».
Reinaldo Pared Pérez, secretario general del PLD, también explicó que el comité político cubrió las vacantes generadas en varias secretarías del PLD, a raíz de las renuncias de sus responsables que decidieron respaldar al expresidente Leonel Fernández, quien abandonó la organización oficialista el mes pasado, creando una serie división en la formación gobernante.
En ese orden, dijo que la vicepresidenta Margarita Cedeño de Fernández fue designada al frente de la secretaría de educación del PLD; en asuntos internacionales, el senador Julio César Valentín; dominicanos en el exterior, Alexis Lantigua; soluciones conflictos, Magda Rodriguez; juventud, Carlos Pared Vidal; empresariales, Luisa Fernández, y deportes, Marcos Díaz.
Otras designaciones recayeron en las secretarías de cultura, Melisa Kasse; laborales, Maritza Hernández; cultos, Isabel de la Cruz; desarrollo urbano, Beatriz Ovalles; medio ambiente, Mónica Lorenzo; tecnología, Armando García; económicos, Guarocuya Félix; agropecuarios, Adriano Sánchez Roa; obras públicas, Alejandro Montás; asuntos jurídicos, José Dantés, municipales, Karen Ricardo, y legislativos, José Ramón Fadul.
En otro orden, el comité político del Partido de la Liberación Dominicana (PLD) acordó este martes su respaldo al sistema de voto automatizado utilizado por primera vez en el país durante las primarias simultáneas del 6 de octubre, además de expresar su rechazo al transfuguismo.
El secretario general del PLD, Reinaldo Pared Pérez, destacó que la cúpula peledeísta consideró que el voto automatizado «rindió sus frutos» y obtuvo «resultados óptimos» durante su implementación en las primarias.
Pared, quien dio a conocer las conclusiones de la reunión, también informó que el órgano del PLD apoya las «disposiciones legales» que establecen, aseguró, que quienes participen como precandidatos en una elección interna de un partido no pueden aspirar de nuevo por otra organización con miras a los comicios inmediatamente siguientes.
El dirigente dijo que uno de los pasos de avance de la Ley de Partidos y del Régimen Electoral es que castigan el transfuguismo y que el PLD respalda a la Junta Central Electoral (JCE).
Asimismo, dio a conocer que las diferentes comisiones peledeístas que recorrieron el país a instancias del comité político, entregaron sus respectivos informes sobre la actual situación de la estructura partidaria y que esos datos fueron suministrados a la secretaría de organización y asuntos electorales.
La reunión del comité político la encabezó el presidente Danilo Medina; la vicepresidenta Cedeño de Fernández; Pared Pérez; el presidente interino de la organización, Temístocles Montás, y el candidato presidencial de la organización, Gonzalo Castillo.
No participaron del encuentro, Abel Martínez, Lucía Medina, José Tomás Pérez, Félix Jiménez, Eduardo Selman y Alejandro Montás.EFE


Divergencias por alianzas pondrían en peligro unidad PRM   


Las alianzas electorales con otras fuerzas políticas de la oposición que está concertando la comisión designada por el candidato presidencial del Partido Revolucionario Moderno (PRM), Luis Abinader, estarían provocando fuertes contradicciones internas que afectan la armonía y la unidad en esa organización política.

El problema ha alcanzado tal magnitud que dirigente altos y medios del PRM están contemplando la posibilidad de “abandonar el barco” para unirse a otras fuerzas.

Un alto dirigente de la organización, que pidió reserva de su nombre, afirmó que el principal cuestionamiento a las gestiones es que son hechas al margen de la dirección ejecutiva del Partido y de la comisión que creó esa organización para negociar alianzas congresuales y municipales con otros opositores.

“Ellos argumentan que la convención del partido otorgó poderes especiales a Abinader para pactar alianzas, en su condición de candidato presidencial, pero el partido es el partido”, dijo.

“Estamos muy preocupados, porque esto está pasando a pocos meses de unas elecciones municipales en febrero, que serán el termómetro para medir lo que podría pasar en los comicios de mayo”, expresó.

Rechazo a Leonel

Asimismo, reveló que un sector del PRM se opone “rabiosamente” a que ese partido pacte una alianza electoral con miras a los comicios del próximo año 2020 con La Fuerza del Pueblo (LFP) creada recientemente por el expresidente Leonel Fernández, a su salida del Partido de la Liberación Dominicana (PLD).

Argumenta que ese sector responsabiliza al leonelismo de las cizañas y las estrategias políticas y electorales que provocaron las divisiones del Partido Revolucionario Dominicano (PRD) y sus posteriores derrotas en las urnas en diversos periodos.
El informante considera que una unidad con Fernández pondría en peligra alianzas electorales ya concertadas con organizaciones opositoras que consideran que no hay diferencias en la dirección del Estado dominicano entre Leonel Fernández y el presidente Danilo Medina.

Pero además, que entre las fuerzas que serían parte de la alianza que se intenta concretizar están partidos como la Fuerza Nacional Progresista (FNP), una organización que tradicionalmente ha sido enemiga del PRD y el PRM.

¿Y los del PRM?
Otro cuestionamiento importante a esas negociaciones, que dirige personalmente el director de campaña de Abinader, Roberto Fulcar, es que los negociadores del PRM están pactando candidaturas de senadurías importantes con otras fuerzas al margen de las aspiraciones de los dirigentes provinciales perremeístas.

En tal sentido mencionó la senaduría de Santiago, que fue cedida al líder del Partido Dominicano por el Cambio (DXC), Eduardo Estrella.

Otra candidatura que estaría provocando “ronchas” en el PRM es la senaduría por La Vega que estaría siendo adjudicada a Ramón Rogelio Genao, secretario general del Partido Reformista Social Cristiano (PRSC).

Igualmente, la candidatura a la senaduría por Hermanas Mirabal, concedida a Bautista Rojas Gómez, alto dirigente de La Fuerza del Pueblo, la organización formada por el expresidente Leonel Fernández.

Un Apunte

Un sector importante del PRM cuestiona que entre los posibles aliados electorales de esa organización para las elecciones de 2020 figure el partido Fuerza Nacional Progresista, que dirigen Vincho Castillo y sus hijos, enemigos tradicionales de esa institución.

"Like much of Death Stranding's game design, the map screen communicates misery. Probably on purpose."   


Funny, incredibly long video review of Death Stranding, filled with praise like this:

"That's Death Stranding. In which even the the most analog stick friendly of video game players will likely struggle to keep the character running in a straight line with a comically tall tower of impossibly fragile, apocalyptically important cargo boxes, dangerously wobbling on his back."

"It's like, what if Breath of the Wild were boring, on purpose."

Boss of Me (Rebroadcast) - 3 December 2018   


If you want to be a better writer, try skipping today's bestsellers, and read one from the 1930's instead. Or read something besides fiction in order to find your own metaphors and perspective. Plus, just because a city's name looks familiar doesn't mean you should assume you know how the locals pronounce it. The upstate New York town spelled R-I-G-A isn't pronounced like the city in Latvia. Turns out lots of towns and streets have counterintuitive names. Finally, why do we describe being socially competitive as "keeping up with the Joneses"? The Joneses, it turns out, were comic strip characters. Also, sugar off, filibuster, you're not the boss of me, and lean on your own breakfast.

The Witcher: Showrunner plant sieben Staffeln für die Netflix-Serie   


Wie im Vorfeld angekündigt, hat Netflix auf der Lucca Comics and Games in der Toskana einen neuen Trailer zur Netflix-Serie The Witcher






In his Bradlands column at Sight & Sound, Brad Stevens has written a perceptively intriguing review of Brian De Palma's Domino. In the article, Stevens takes into account the complicated nature of the film's production, including the post-production (no, it was not recut from some longer edit, but yes, if De Palma had been involved in the post-production process, the colors would look deeper and the film dialogue would likely sound better, etc., etc.).

There is one small issue I have with Stevens' article. Near the end of it, Stevens writes: "When CIA agent Joe Martin (Guy Pearce) arrives on the rooftop, why does Christian suddenly know his name?" Christian knows to be looking out for a man named Joe Martin via Alex, who is in contact with Wold, and is relaying information to Christian. Joe Martin tells Christian that Wold told him he'd be there, and it is left for the viewer to understand that Christian has also been informed of who is coming.

Stevens links this matter with the more intuitive aspect of Ethan in Mission: Impossible figuring out that Jim Phelps' Bible "reveals him to be the pseudonymous mole ‘Job’" -- Stevens adds that the Bible itself "clearly does no such thing." That whole aspect of Mission: Impossible falls within Ethan's personal interpretations of events and what he knows about Jim Phelps, but the matter in Domino is hardly any kind of stretch, as the eliptical scenes of Alex calling Christian as she heads out of the stadium indicate she will be in further contact as she makes her way over to join him.

Otherwise, Stevens presents Domino as a highly intriguing riddle:

When is a film not a film?

If this sounds like the start of a joke, it is appropriate that the punchline should be: when it’s Brian De Palma’s Domino. For what we are dealing with here is a director who has spent much of his career hoodwinking both audiences and characters.

The deceptiveness of De Palma’s films is usually suggested by a sardonic tone, one insinuating that, just as the protagonists cannot be certain of what they saw, so the viewer cannot be sure this thriller or horror movie isn’t deconstructing the very narrative/visual forms in which it is theoretically embedded.

Even by De Palma’s standards, Domino is an oddity, its status as a product – an object which has passed through all those stages befitting a work intended for commercial distribution – being extremely problematic. Shot in various European locations during 2017, Domino completed post-production in 2018 (the year it is copyrighted), enjoyed its first public screenings in 2019, and begins with a caption reading “June 10, 2020”, implying a slightly futuristic setting while making an auteurist connection with De Palma’s Mission to Mars (2000), whose first scene takes place on “June 9, 2020”.

Domino, which like the director’s previous feature Passion (the subject of an earlier Bradlands column) has gone straight to DVD in the UK, arrives accompanied by tales of behind-the-scenes difficulties.

Interviewed at the Fnac des Ternes bookstore in Paris last June, De Palma explained that “It was a very difficult situation, a film that was underfinanced. I was in many hotel rooms waiting for the money so that we could continue shooting. I was in many fabulous cities, waiting in hotel rooms. I was here 100 days in Europe, and shot 30. However, somehow we managed to make a movie out of this completely chaotic production situation, and hopefully you’ll be seeing it in your local cinemas sometime in the future.”

Despite currently being reluctant to discuss Domino, De Palma has denied rumours that the final cut, clocking in at 89 minutes, was shortened against his wishes (an erroneous original running time of 148 minutes has been cited by reviewers), informing the De Palma a la Mod website that “It was not recut. I was not involved in the ADR, the musical recording sessions, the final mix or the colour timing of the final print.”

These remarks would be little more than gossip did they not speak so directly to the experience of viewing the end result. For this is plainly an unfinished film, patched together from whatever materials happened to be available when the money finally ran out.

De Palma is playing his usual Oedipal games in Domino, whose protagonist, Christian Toft (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), is a Danish police officer who uncovers a terrorist cell after being inadvertently responsible for the death of his older partner, Lars Hansen (Søren Malling). Lars is explicitly positioned as a father-figure to Christian (who refers to him as “my sort-of father”), and it is Christian’s clumsiness that causes his father/partner’s death: he ‘forgets’ his own gun, and has to borrow Lars’s, then, after Lars has his throat slit, manages to lose this gun as well, ‘accidentally’ dropping it as he pursues Lars’s assailant. Christian’s inability to retain the symbolic phallus (he is, in a sense, doubly castrated) is thus almost comically overdetermined, the pursuit (a homage to Hitchcock’s Vertigo) having a suitably dreamlike tone.

Needless to say, after ‘accidentally’ killing the father, Christian must complete his Oedipal trajectory by sleeping with the mother. And since Lars’s wife Hanne (Paprika Steen) is not a viable object for Christian’s desires (she is too obviously ‘the mother’), the film is obliged to provide an alternative in the form of Lars’s young lover Alexandra Boe (Carice van Houten), who, it turns out, is pregnant by Lars. The emergence of an amorous/sexual relationship between Christian and Alexandra is guaranteed not only by the Oedipus Complex, but also by the demands of the narrative, romance being unavoidable in a movie which has two attractive male/female leads investigating a crime together. Yet this romance never actually happens, presumably because De Palma was prevented from shooting scenes relating to it.

There are echoes here of De Palma’s Mission: Impossible (1996), in which Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) must kill his own “sort-of father” Jim Phelps (Jon Voight) after having sex with the symbolic father’s much younger wife, Claire (Emmanuelle Béart). And while there is no ambiguity about Ethan’s having slept with Claire (indeed, this proves to be part of Jim’s scheme), the film remains surprisingly coy on this matter, fading to black after Claire kisses Ethan’s hand. That this act of displaced incest has been ‘repressed’ is all the more striking in that De Palma shot footage showing Ethan and Claire making love, some of which turned up in the trailer (see frame grab below).

Of course, repression is hardly a concept incompatible with Freudian theory, and if evidence of the Oedipal crime is obscured in Mission: Impossible, it is entirely absent from Domino due to an ‘accident’ of production. And as all good Freudians know, there is no such thing as an accident.

Domino proves to be doubly illusory, uniting its protagonist, who keeps ‘accidentally’ losing his phallus/gun, with its director, who ‘accidentally’ loses crucial parts of his film. And this illusion is passed on to the viewer, who had every reason to believe she was watching a completed work.

Domino (a title which, appropriately enough, is meaningless) thus has less in common with De Palma’s earlier output than it does with that version of Erich von Stroheim’s abandoned Queen Kelly (1931) assembled in 1985, juxtaposing fragments of Stroheim’s footage (including stills from lost sequences) with intertitles covering vast acres of scripted material that never went before the camera. Reviewing this for the Monthly Film Bulletin (September 1985), Richard Combs noted a shot of an ocean liner which “lasts several seconds – an eternity, it seems, given the information it conveys, compared to the flurry of titles and stills which have just tucked away so many dramatic developments and reversals in a twinkling”. For Combs, these a-rhythms, “the narrative disappearing after doing busy little mountains of work”, recalled the cinematic practises of Straub-Huillet.

Something of this quality is discernible in Domino’s finale. Despite containing several typical De Palma set pieces in which events that might have occupied a few seconds in ‘reality’ are stretched to breaking point, the film concludes with a brief rooftop scene wherein multiple plot developments are breathtakingly piled on top of each other with no concern for logic, plausibility or consistency. This scene obviously had to be shot hurriedly and at little expense in order to provide some kind of climax, the effect being both absurd and oddly disturbing, as if the film’s primary motivation were to finish unreeling before it could embarrass itself any further.

Which is to say that it does ‘accidentally’, and by contraction, what De Palma’s set pieces (themselves often simultaneously absurd and disturbing) do ‘deliberately’, by expansion. Even random details which, in the absence of those presumably unrealised sequences that might have explained them, make no sense have their antecedents in De Palma’s previous mischievously misleading films, whose main principle of construction would appear to be the aporia. When CIA agent Joe Martin (Guy Pearce) arrives on the rooftop, why does Christian suddenly know his name? One might as well ask why Mission: Impossible demands that the Bible Jim Phelps has stolen reveals him to be the pseudonymous mole ‘Job’ when it clearly does no such thing.

Although the director’s admirers have found little to praise in Domino, this film maudit might appeal to those who usually reject De Palma’s oeuvre as excessively controlled, too micro-managed for anything unplanned to seep in. It even evokes memories of Jacques Rivette’s Out 1 (1971), in which stories and identities are subjected to a process of infinite improvisational expansion that can only end with a return to point zero.

Like so much of De Palma, Domino makes us question the nature of cinematic illusionism, forcing us to ask what purpose images serve beyond the conveying of narrative data which is their ostensible reason for being. That it does this inadvertently is precisely the reason for its fascination.
