For those of you who don't follow me on Twitter or on Facebook, or who haven't received my email, or simply haven't seen it yet.

I was in Iraqi Kurdistan last month, where I met PKK leader Murat Karayilan. You can find the interview, with pictures, on  Turkish Diary and on GroundReport.




My interview to Orhan Pamuk for euronews now on YouTube

My interview to Nedim Gürsel on YouTube




Available also in 7 other languages (the original one is in French). If you are interested, just ask.

Happy birthday, Anna!

Come da oggetto :)

I'm going to be a TV star

Well, I might be a bit optimistic... Just a bit.
Anyway, tonight, at 9.45, I'll be on air on euronews interviewing Mr Nedim Gürsel, Turkish writer, under trial these days for blasphemy. More details in the interview, which is being repeated all over the weekend (I think, I have no idea about the actual timetable).
And if you should miss it, don't worry: it will soon be on line on euronews' website. Enjoy!

Update

During the night it's going to be on air more or less every hour at .45.

Timetable for tomorrow: 05.45, 8.15, 12.45, 16.15, 21.15. And it's already on the website :)

Today the world's a worse place

I cannot say I knew JG Ballard in depth. I can't even say I liked Crash: well, I read it 30 years after it was published and I found it boring.
But his short stories... I wish I could write something half as visionary.

I cannot but regret never meeting him in person. Rest in peace, James.

The Perfect Valentine's Day

Tags:

I used to be the kind of guy
Who'd never let you look inside
I'd smile when I was crying
I had nothing but a life to loose
Thought I had a lot to proof
In my life, there's no denying

Goodbye to all my yesterdays
Goodbye, so long, I'm on my way

I've had enough of cryin'
Bleedin', sweatin', dyin'
Hear me when I say
Gonna live my life everyday
I'm gonna touch the sky
And I spread these wings and fly
I ain't here to play
I'm gonna live my life everyday

Change, everybody's feeling strange
Never gonna be the same
Makes you wonder how the world keeps turning
Life, learning how to live my life
Learning how to pick my fights
Take my shots while I'm still burning

Goodbye to all those rainy nights
Goodbye, so long, I'm moving on

I've had enough of cryin'
Bleedin', sweatin', dyin'
Hear me when I say
Gonna live my life everyday
I'm gonna touch the sky
And I spread these wings and fly
I ain't here to play
I'm gonna live my life everyday

Hit the gas, take the wheel
I've just made myself a deal
There ain't nothing gonna get in my way
Everyday

Goodbye, so long, I'm moving on

I've had enough of cryin'
Bleedin', sweatin', dyin'
Hear me when I say
Gonna live my life everyday
I'm gonna touch the sky
And I spread these wings and fly
I ain't here to play
I'm gonna live my life everyday

I, oh I, oh I, I'm gonna live my life everyday
I (gonna touch the sky), oh I (spread these wings and fly), oh I
I'm gonna live my life everyday

(Bon Jovi, Everyday)
