Coming Soon: December

It's Christmas time! All the family gathers for gift exchange and to tell old stories. To celebrate the ties which hold them together. To remember the ones who have passed away.

Christmas is a season of mixed feelings. Happiness and sadness are tied together. Fortunately, in some cases, there is a TV set connected to a set-top box somewhere. A haven for excited children, for bored adults and for the loneliest.

Find out about our suggestions and write them in your agenda!

Christmas is losing its core values. Nowadays, Christmas is all about obsession. Christmas gifts are at the top of many lists:

  • "We should buy one more thing for aunt Clarissa!"
  • "Why are you standing there? Don't you have to find one more toy for our Timmy?"
  • "What will we do if Laurie doesn't like her gift?"

All this pressure rises constantly from Thanksgiving until December 24th, and children are caught in the middle. But don't worry, this Christmas you can count on Bo, from StoryBots, to teach your kids that Christmas isn't all about gifts... It’s about something more profound. And, while you are at it, you could take some notes and learn something too.

There are many examples where fashion and movies collide. Woodshock is a good example of that. Written and directed by the sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, fashion designers known for their brand Rodarte, this drama film tells a disturbing story about drug addiction.

Theresa assisted her mother in a suicide and that disturbed her in a deep way. To try to cope with her loss, she starts taking a reality-altering drug, which is the leitmotiv of the whole movie and serves as an excuse for all the visual style and atmosphere created by the Mulleavy sisters.

The story of the United Kingdom isn't a very peaceful one. One of the most important examples is the Gunpowder Plot, where a bunch of English Catholics came together to plan to blow up the House of Lords and murder King James I, in the early 17th century.

One of the main conspirators was Robert Catesby and he is the main character of the BBC One series starring Kit Harrington (curiously, a descendant of this historical character, as well of the King James I), mostly known for his role as John Snow, in Game Of Thrones.
