Film: Into the Wild (Hacia rutas salvajes) A great film and an amazing OST.

Yes I really liked it too, I was expecting something different as Sean Penn was directing but was pleasantly surprised.

I'm just tackling the book in spanish, going quite well probably helps I've seen the film first

I recommend: www.magnatune.com

Magnatune is a site for independant musicians all over the world. You can listen to tons of album online for free (the only downside is that they talk after each track and you have to pay if you want if off). You may seach by artist, album, style and even mood!

I love listening to the classical, new age and celtic music on magnatune when I write my novels.

So true. Great film and even better OST by Eddie Veder.

As for a film recommendation I have to go for the last work of my beloved super badass Clint Eastwood : Gran Torino, amazing stuff and superb grand finale for the hero Eastwood has been shaping all these years.

Hola.
Tienes razón, creo que "Gran Torino" es buena película. Viejo y sus malas relaciones con familia y por otro
lado con sus jovenes vecinos asiaticos.
Clint Eastwood como siempre un gran actor y director.

Default i wanna go surfing

Summers already here, let's hit the beach or at least turn up the volume to the fun and energetic vibe of these fine Brooklyn lads :

The Drums : I Wanna Go Surfing




The rest of their album is as good as this little song above. Eighties nostalgia.

Meyer Hawthorne. Great US singer who I saw in Barcelona last month. Excellent night out in the Ciudad Condal and the album's good too!

Default Great books

Two wonderful books are The Kite Runner (Khaled Hosseini) and El Juego del Angel (Carlos Ruiz Zafon). I especially loved the latter. It wasn't as slow as his other best seller -La Sombra del Viento.

An uplifting film is "Shine"

Default Some music recommendations

Anything by Joanna Newsom, in particular, "Ys" and "Have One On Me"
She is one of the more talented songwriters in recent memory. Her voice is unique and unlike anything you'll hear. Her lyrics are beautiful.

The album "Silent Shout" by The Knife
Weird, ominous electronica. Check out "We Share Our Mother's Health" or "Neverland" or "Like a Pen" for a taste.

Lightbulb Password manager

I have been using Last Pass password manager for a few months and I find it very helpful and convenient and I feel safer knowing that my passwords are stored in a secure manner.

Once you are logged in to Last Pass with your master-password you don't need to enter your username and password manually on any of the sites where you are registered: they will be automatically entered with a couple of clicks. It can also generate strong passwords for you and then store them.

I also use a second (optional) layer of authentication which is in the form of a grid of numbers which you have to print out. After logging in with your master-password you will be asked to provide four numbers from the grid corresponding to the co-ordinates that they provide. Only if the numbers match will you be granted access. So even if your master-password gets compromised your data will remain safe.

Apart from passwords you can store short notes, like details of your bank accounts, passport, driver's licence, software licences, credit cards etc.

Like many other applications these days your Last Pass data gets synchronised on all your computers, smart phones and USB pen drives where it is installed.

Incidentally, you can choose Spanish as the default language, like I did (even my Firefox browser is in Spanish).
