WHO AM I? - A GENERAL BIOGRAPHY
My name is Elisabetta, i'm a 28 years old Italian girl who lives in a small Italian city called Alba. Here we have a lot of nice things: famous wines, the withe and black truffles, the Ferrero, Miroglio and Mondo Industries (OK, well, we have a lot of industries)... and, over all, many beautiful landscapes...I love landscapes, I'm totally crazy about them, almost as I'm crazy about photography, even if I'm not such a good photographer. But I love photographs books, and art.
Besides writing- and readking, in my free time I like painting. I'm aware that I'm not such a good artist, and that if my words are good is rather debactable, especially since I'm into astraptism and not everybody like it, but I'm rather good at it, and even if I'm not, it really helps me to get rid of tension and stress.
I'm totally into animals, I just love them. I have two dogs Sissi, like the Austrian princess and then empress and Chicca, who belonged to my grandaprents before they movved.. she and Sissi are quite good friends, and Chicca (differently from my own dog) likes me.
I have a two an an half years old cat, that I found in my garden during summer when she was barely 3 months old, and even if I tried to search for her owners and I din't find them, I think she was abandoned. We took her in, we calls her Minnie (like Mickey Mouse's girlfriend- I know it's kinda of strage, buthere in Piemonte, when we call cats, we say "min min", that's similar to minnie, besides, my mum thought it was funny...). Couple of months ago,more or less, I found another cat in my garden, thsi time she was sick, probably abandoned or lost, and needed food an medical attention. Again, we took her in, and now she is getting to know and trust her. She has been called MIA (mia is the italian female words for both mine and my, and mum, as soon as she took her in the first day of snow, she said that "Now she is mine" and the name stuck...
I even had 4 parroquettes, 2 male, and 2 female, little little little. they are called after the Mc Leod's daughters characters... there are Nick, Jodie, Brick and Becky. Did i told you that I loved that show?
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT...
LAST BOOKS RED: re-red "Eclipse" and "the short, brief second life of Bree Tanner" by S.meyer; "Impero-a voyage through the Roman Empire following a coin" by A.Angela; "La patria, bene o male" by Gramellini & Fruttero; "The eight confession" by Patterson; "meet me under the mistotele" by a.ray; "Naked heat" (in the doing) by Ghost Writer R.Castle.
When I'm not looking at what's new on the net, I spend almost my time reading ... I love Elizabeth George, Kathy Reichs (Crime stories), Michael Chricton (rest in peace), Isabelle Alliende and the Italian writer Valerio Massimo Manfredi (historical novels). I don't know if you Known him: he wrote the novel "THE LAST LEGION", on which the movie is based on... I had a Harry Potter period, too,a lot of years ago, when I was at hight school (Liceo classico, in English it sounds like Classical Hight School. I studied ancient Greek, and Latin, and over all, classical art) but it didn't last long. A couple of years ago I found out that I like Sophie Kinsella ... I red REMEMBER ME? in more or less a day...and then I bought all her old books. I've recently re-red the whole Twilight serie, (I always does it after seeing the movie, because I like to notice the differences between movies and books) Elizabeth George's last book and a couple of other "minor" authors, but I've loved few love-stories, such as: Knit 1&2 (K.Jacobs), Love the one you're with (E.Griffin ) and Chasing Harry Winston (by Lauren Weisberger) and I'm reading the Italain works by massimo gramellini (THE 150 years of United Italy by small and bif events, one for each year) and the one from alberto Angela, the hystory of the Roman Empire through the coins. My darkest secret? I like romance novels! And, sicne they are the size of a trade-paperback, I alwasy have one in my purse (love big purses, and, mostly, I need them. too many things...) for when I'm same time to waste while I'm waiting to catch a bus or waiting for someoen. Well, I also read them sitting at a table in a cafè, when I leave just because I feel like... I "like" comics, too. I know it's strange., but I love them... especially Super-Hero comics. (Marvel and DC , even if I have to say that i'm right now reading more Witchblade and the artifacts mini)My favorite comics? difficult to say. when I was younger, I loved the X-Men. then I hated them. but, after "supernovas "and "Rise and Fall" (Great Brubaker, my favorite author, he is doing a hell of a work on captain America!!) I started to love them again- now I'm in an off period again, probably because I think that the writer are being.. telling things and then writing the opposite. while I didn't like Astonishing X-Men by Whedon, I found out that Astonishing X-men Second stage (yes, Second Stage, like the title of WRL Chronicles...) is a way better- confusing, like the other serie, but, yet, not that bad. (and, anyway, I already hated Forge, so it's no big deal..) But for now, the top of the top is Melzer's Justice League of America. (and i like how he writes, his stories are so full of passion... he is a great writer, and he did a great work both on JLA and in the mini Identity Crisis, my favorite story). I discovered two amazing authors at DC COMICS: Marz (Green lantern, Witchblade, which is nice, by the way) and Johns, who wrote JSA; Today, I'm trying to understand if I liked Secret Invasion, (hard, since I'm still trying to understand if I liked years ago Marvel's Civil War or not...) the only thing i know is a) I'm happy Hawkeyewas back after the Civil War b)I DO LOVE CORNELL'S CAPTAIN BRITAN AND MI:13!! Too bad the serie is over... and c) INVINCIBLE IRON MAN is... well, pefect is the least I could say! My current "over the top book" is artifacts, by TOP COW PUBLISHING. I also used to read one manga (and one only, I swear), Fullmetal Alchemist. I'm reading again my old ITALIAN COMICS, the crime stories from the comic JULIA - a profiler who works in an imaginary american city along with some police officers - and Martyn Mystere... (yes, I know, they did a cartoon about it. But they did a completely WRONG and DIFFERENT cartoon about it... the Comic martyn Mystere is an arhceologist in his late 50- early 60, married with long time girlfriend who works for the television,Diana and, well, the only thinks that it doesn't change, then, it's Java... for the rest... forget it, ok?)
MUSIC I'M LISTENING TO AROUND THIS TIME: "Hands all over" by Maroon 5; "chocabeck" by Zucchero Sugar fornaciari (albums); few songs from katie Perry's last album (Fireworks; teenage draem); random songs not from an album: "Beatiful lie"; Kick Ass (mika); stay the night by j.blunt.
Speaking of music, I'm a disaster, not because i don't have good tastes, but because I have too many tastes! I like MARRON 5, EVANESCENCE (but, IMHO, with Ben Moody they were a way better), the Italian songwriter Zucchero Sugar Fornaciari, The Doors, Queen (Freddy rest in peace- but it doesn't mean that Cosmos Rock isn't among my favourite albums, because it is. I even have it on both CD and LP. ), my idols from when I was born, Anastacia, Foo Fighers, Linkin Park,OneRepubblic,Simple Plan (that I discovered many years ago, before they become so famous.) and so many others...I even came to like Timbaland. read my story "THE WLR CHRONICLES"; there's a chapter in which Chris shows Jamie her mp3; what she has inside is part of what I've inside my own.
TV-SHOWS I'M CURRENTLY FOLLOWING: THE MENTALIST(!!!!!!!), THE CLOSER, CSI:NY, CASTLE, SMALLVILLE.
I don't watch a lot of tv. a) because Italian tv is almost all garbage(not in the sense that there's garbage, the garbage is just in Naples) : I can't resists when I see a reality, I've to switch channel; and b)there are too many "happy endings" (tv shows, tv movies - all come to a good end.Oh, please...). I just watch on regular bases SMALLVILLE, Fringe, Numb3rs, CSI (all 3, but I almost left Miami when Speed get killed: I was deeply in love with him!) E.R., (Carol and Dug, I miss you so much!, )Law &Order, Psych. (not so regualrly). BUT there's just a show I own completely in DVD- and the last 2 season on dvd recorded by my dvd recorder- the greatest of them all... the closer! (ok, I lied, I have Samllville in dvd, too, but I share with my brother...)and then, that's all. I like scientific and civil interest programs,too, and, logically, I look at the news.
LAST MOVIE SEEN: LA BANDA DEI BABBI NATALE (Santa's band) by comedians Aldo, giovanni and Giacomo.
I love a lot of movies, let's start with my top ten : the lord of the rings thrilogy, and the Danny Ocean's one; all the four Indiana Johns movies(even the last one, it was so nice, and I still hope that Indy's dad is only missing and not really gone... please Sean, we want a granpa/dad/son thing in the next movie... because we want another movie!)and ALL the movies into the STAR TREK farnchise- especially the old ones - Moulin Rouge! RomeoJuliet, Shindler's List, Pride and Prejudice, Underworld (Evoltion wasn't so bad, but there are many things better, believe me), The Italian Job, Coyote Ugly, Save the last Dance, America Hystory X (I so love Norton! I even went to see the Hulk Movie just because he was shirtless in so many scenes...Did you know how sexy he is when he is shirtless?)I know, there are many"musical" movies, and sad ones, but, well, that's me. (note: I'm probably the only one who always, and I repeat, always, cry, when she looks at Fullmetal Alchemist-The Movie. I know, it's an anime, but for much I try, I always cry...) By the way, one of my favorite movies of ever is the legend of the pianist on the ocean" by Tornatore, with Tim Roth. I don't know if this is the title in English, but it was a great movie, able to make me cry and laught. When I was a kid, I grew up with my grandad, who was a maniac of wester,and, over all, spaghetti western.I knew them almost all, and, well, there was the "herbie the love bug" series I was crazy about, my favorite movies when I was a kid! sometimes, I even decide that I can allow myself to look at stuff less, well, complicated and serous, so, I found out that 27 dresses is lovable and that Just My Luck isn't so bad. I never liked the 007, I always thouht that they were the prototype of the alfa male and everything that's connected to it, starting with the recurrenting sex. So, when my brother convinced me to go see Quantum of Solace I found it quite interesting. I already knew Craig, since Years ago I seen Munich, but he was good in this one, and I didn't thought I could see a 007 movie from the beginning. Now I'm seeing Australia ,altough it's worth seen only for two thungs: the director and Hugh Jackman. Speaking of which, I have to say, I've seen all the X-MEN movies, and Wolverine:origins.Doesn't mean that I liked them, because I didn't (well, maybe I did, but just the last one, the last stand, the other two were... I didn't like them too much, that's all). speaking of superheroes, yes, I went to see Iron Man. and I loved it! I mean, Shield! and Avengers! and it's in continuity with the Hulk movie (the last hulk movie- the one where we have shirtless Norton...)!)! what a comic-nerd-addicted could ask more? simple: Nothing! Well, changing topic, among my favourites, you can find also marie Antoinette and my favourite of all, Take the lead, with banderas. i usually watch on my blue-ray, at least once a week, MAMMA MIA!. I looked at The day the earth stand still, and found that Reeves could be a great Pete Wisdom- but maybe it's just because I thought of Wisdom as I saw the hellblazer movie.. Sorry: CONSTANTINE...
I've recently re-seen Twilight 1, 2 and 3 and Iron man (1 and 2) and A-TEAM.
