So, I haven’t talked about the Walking Dead this season yet (yes, sorry for people not caring about TV shows, but they’ll become a feature of this blog, but worry not, normal posting of the usual topics and pictures will also resume soon). The thing is that it’s harder […]

The Walking Dead, Season 7, Episodes 1 & 2


  So, I’m a little behind, but I finally watched the first two episodes of Stranger Things… Here are my impressions. As often with TV shows, I’m typing my thoughts as they come, so it’s not always very structured. It was very interesting and “weird”. The nostalgia is strong with […]

  So, you may have heard of it, but Prisma is this new app that turns your pictures into drawings and paintings. At first, I dismissed it as a useless app, and the first things I saw on my social media pretty much confirmed it. However, a few days ago, […]

What do French people think of Portugal & Portuguese people?

The Winds of Winter – Game of Thrones Episode S6E10
