Music, Movies, and Books

I like a lot of music genres..can't stuck into just one of them, and can't choose who is the best for me. what is the preferred or the best..it's just a wrong question. sounds like asking "what is your favourite dish?"
can you pick between Tandoori Chicken, Tiramisù, or Spaghetti allo scoglio? I can't, honestly..
to me (almost) everything is good as music, it's about the mood.

¤¤ BoOkS ¤¤
Suskin's Profumo, Isaac Asimov', Marco Travaglio's stuff, uhm... don't read enough to make a good stats. that's a shame, I know.. :(

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

¤¤ SeEn ¤¤
sunset @ Cliffs of Moher (Ireland), flying fishes in Thailand, whales in front of Genoa gulf, Dolphins in Thailand. Yes I love nature.mmmm.....few things from nature too not pertinent with the content of this site.
Some pictures in some CS profiles, reminding me how many beatiful places I have to visit yet.

¤¤ DoNe ¤¤
Most amazing are quite often forbidden. woah.

Teach, Learn, Share

¤¤ TeAcHinG ¤¤
. How to make a DNA test? protein native extraction? Recombinant DNA techniques? how to perform a Molecular Dynamics simulation? are you interested? nooo?? can't blame you...:)
. few tricks with graphic design stuff
. Italian language (mmm...not sure though :) )

¤¤ LeArNiNg ¤¤
. I found that attitudes different than mine sometimes offered me the chance to grow up or to enlarge my horizons. So I enjoy learning by meeting people culturally different than me. Can anybody teach me how to fly?

¤¤ ShArE ¤¤
. allow people from countries where internet censorship is active to access restricted content: install psiphon, http://psiphon.civisec.org/

. a new and fantastic italian folk band is growing, support them. Their name is PCT

. a couch request is not trivial at all: reading profiles, writing personal emails and so on. but reading through copied and pasted couch requests, or email sent by people with an empty profile really piss me off too. So I decided to write just once and ever the following emails and use them to reply in the above mentioned cases, without the hassle to write again and again to people who doesn't read or care about the CS requests guidelines.

empty profile sender

Hello girl/hello boy,
This is the Denis' sm@rt-e-mail answering machine. accordingly to my microchip, you begged for a free place to stay, and possibly free party, free meals, free red wine, free friendship. But you didn't even managed to fill up your profile with some bit of information about yourself, pictures, interests, whatever. How it comes?

Try again with a filled profile, you could be more lucky.

from a copied and pasted email

Hello girl/hello boy,
This is the Denis' sm@rt-e-mail answering machine. accordingly to my microchip, you sent off a lovely-general-purpose-copy-and-paste couch request. Well, it's not that regrettable like a child-raping priest, but it's far from away from a good start, won't you think so??

I know you can do better!
