Week on the web


Here are my finds for this week…

Have YOU found anything interesting this week?


What I like…besides books: Insensatez

I am a big fan of songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes. You might know the song “Garota da Ipanema” (The girl from Ipanema – this is a great performance by Frank Sinatra and Antonio Jobim from 1967) which is probably their most famous one.

“Insensatez” is one of my favourite songs. This here is an absolutely stunning video and performance of Fernanda Takai, a Brasilian singer.

If you would like to see Antonio Jobim perform the song himself, you can do so here (there are tons of great videos of that song).


What I like…besides books: music videos – Stand inside your love

In order to bring a bit more diversity to my blog I decided to add a What I like…besides books feature. I’ll simply post an image or video of something I like and chat about it if I feel like it.

The idea occurred to me today in the car when I listened to the Smashing Pumpkins and thought about their absolutely awesome video clip to “Stand inside your love”. It’s a great song, but the video is something else. What can I say, I just love men in skirts.
