Mood.

Activities, plans and experiences in family or solo, to make bearable the confinement


Two hours with star. It has been called the Live Aid era of the coronavirus, a meeting of stars gathered to raise money for the fight against the pandemic that we get hit. They were veterans such as Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones or Stevie Wonder, with young people like Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, or Lizzo. All sang from their homes, a single song. There were some exciting moments, like McCartney playing Lady Madonna, with a speech where he talks about his mother, a nurse during the Second World War. It was also touching to listen to Swift sing a theme dedicated to his mother, who has cancer. You can relive this One World: Together At Home at full in the page of RTVE TO The Letter. It is worth it.


A tea with Eduardo Mendoza and a novel in installments.

In times of alarm state, with almost all paralyzed, there is little that is new publishers, but some reaches, for example, the new novel by deliveries and exclusive in the web of John Connolly The strange sisters Strange, with Charlie Parker as the protagonist, with new chapters every week.


Revelation home. The mini collective Women Topo, formed by the illustrators Ana Oncina, Bea Tormo, Genie Espinosa and Clara Soriano, has decided to send what could well be his four wacky alter egos to an unknown dimension that in reality we know very well (some kind of end of the world in march) and see what it gives them the matter of not leaving the house and have to live with. The result is aniquilantes bullets with a sense of humour corrosive and liberating, in a green and white radioactive, which tries to anticipate what is to come, or redrawn from a fiction (non-fiction) badass what could be happening behind any of the four walls in which these days we are locked in. The thing, the invention, arose out of a conversation whatsapp among the four, and hopefully one day, when all this is over and we can go to the bookstores, have a physical format so that we can taking it home turned into a crazy travelogue of what it was, or could be. Meanwhile, we can continue to your Instagram.

Video game

End shots. Borderlands it is a call looter shooter, that is to say, a shooting game that includes elements of role-playing, or action role playing game, in which we create characters and then we launched into a hostile world, and wild-and in this case also fantastic – with components-apocalyptic and science fiction – to shoot everything that moves, or almost. Aclamadísimo and premiadísimo, has at least a couple of sequels, but we’ll be able to enjoy free (for Xbox One and PC, via Steam) is the first of all, remastered and re-released, the call Game of the Year Edition.
