  1. The Wrong Shot

    Two weeks of Grand Slam tennis provides with a lot of TV coverage of a lot of matches. There are plenty of commentators, which can be divided into two camps: former professional players that have made the crossover and “Professional” commentators, people that for some reason or another get the credit of “knowing” about the sport.

  5. Farewell, Nemo

    In 1984, Milos Forman released AMADEUS, a movie that went on to receive awards and prizes all over the world. The film (based on a fictional play written by Peter Schaffer) told the story of the musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his relationship with a lesser known classical composer, the Italian Antonio Salieri.
