C’è qualcosa di estremamente colpevole in ognuno di noi.
Allo stesso tempo, c’è qualcosa di estremamente innocente in ognuno di noi.

In Italia sei conosciuto come TREDICI ma hai invaso il tempo libero di molti in tutto il mondo, stando agli apprezzamenti ed ai likes sui social e community. Ho letto solo critiche positive fin’ora ed i commenti più frequenti vertono tra il « è tosta… un dramma!… ma non riesco a smettere » oppure « è una psico-droga! E’ una depressione continua, ma guardalo! ».

Cara Hannah Baker, 
la tua storia sta saltellando ovunque e chiunque ne parla. Hai spaccato lo schermo -e non intendo il gergo televisivo- intendo proprio dire che hai frantumato la parete invisibile che divide la realtà dalla finzione ovattata che di solito si vede in TV. Non c’entra se l’ambientazione è americana, se i teenagers guidano l’auto, se organizzano feste grandiose, perché i problemi sono identici anche in Italia. Qui ci hanno fatto credere di portare avanti una campagna contro il femminicidio per circa un mese, ma apro un sondaggio: chi ne è rimasto veramente colpito? Chi si è soffermato a rifletterci veramente e a parlarne? Spero che nelle scuole, almeno qualcuno, abbia tentato.

Hannah la tua storia è intensa, cruda e bella quanto la nostra bella società. Non intendo aprire una critica antropologica o sociale, dico soltanto che Netflix ha investito in un progetto educativo. Non è il solito intrattenimento. Il thriller psicologico di Hannah Baker è il risultato di una cooperazione tra psicologi e terapeuti abituati a lavorare con giovani in situazioni difficili, un team di producers decisi a mostrare la realtà ed a far parlare oltre che riflettere. Ogni dettaglio, ogni scelta, insegna qualcosa attraverso il linguaggio più apprezzato dal target di riferimento. Giovanissimi che parlano a giovanissimi. Compagni di scuola, di cazzate serali, attraverso l'impegno di un cast artistico e tecnico totale. Non avrei mai creduto che per quella protagonista fosse il primo ruolo, che la maggior parte di quegli attori siano sconosciuti, o che la fotografia non sia opera di un premio Oscar. Questo lavoro mostra la passione nei dettagli e se così non fosse stato non avrebbe ottenuto così tanto, né sarebbe riuscita nell'indegno compito di dimostrare quanto la famosa terza legge della dinamica sia reale: a ogni azione corrisponde una reazione uguale e contraria. Ovviamente detta in sintesi. Ne origina un effetto farfalla, un caos sensibile interno ed esterno alla narrazione.

Tanto bella quanto difficile.
Si ride, si piange, io ho singhiozzato e non mi era mai successo prima.
La natura umana articolata in tredici racconti spietatamente pragmatici, difficili da digerire, eppure tutti conosciamo la terribile conclusione. Hanno un finale scontato? Non lo definirei affatto così, del resto il finale si scopre sin dalla prima mezz’ora del primo episodio eppure continui a guardarlo ed alla fine, quando senza filtri né riserve scopri come sono andate le cose, ti svuoti. Solo allora le emozioni prendono il sopravvento e per quanto si possa reagire diversamente, tutti siamo invasi da un carico emotivo non indifferente. 

Le tredici ragioni vanno ascoltate per essere comprese, non c’è niente che io possa dire per convincere qualcuno a viverle. Sono difficili. Spiazzante è la bellezza di questa serie la cui verità sconvolge. Limpida e in stereo. Simpatico no? Siamo un po’ tutti Hannah Baker quando voltiamo lo sguardo, chiudiamo la bocca, tappiamo le orecchie, lasciamo qualcosa o qualcuno dentro di noi morire a piccole dosi.

C’è bisogno di ricordare che oltre la quotidianità c’è un’anima che si muove e compone l’umanità?

“Oh my gosh, really, you don’t have to do this-“ you stutter, waving your hands back and forth as you stare at the woman in front of you. “Oh nonsense dear! We’re moving, and I don’t want you to be out in the rain like this, champion of Alola or not!” The woman said, grabbing another box and handing it to a Machamp. “But I-“ You tried to protest, but the woman completely ignored you, her husband waiting impatiently by the door.

This reminds me, that I should catch up on watching my TV recordings, so I can be up to date with the fall TV season premieres.

qr code tips:

  1. make a page of qr codes dedicated to just solid colors. when spread and rotated on the floor, they will make a carpet to match anything you need (also great for cushions, pillows, bedspreads, etc.)
  2. you can spread qr codes on the roof and use them as curtain fabrics
  3. place a few custom small spotlights or paper wall lamps to add a tint of color. use the one-color qr code method from above on the paper wall lamp
  4. use simple qr codes (solid colors, small florals, etc.) as tile rugs to place under things like dressers to add dimension or a pop of color
  5. add dimension with qr code steps, porches, planks, stepping stones, etc. remember that clovers can be placed on top of qr code rugs to add overgrowth and more dimension

other helpful tips:

  1. try rotating items towards a wall, especially those you can place other items on top of. for example, the deluxe washer makes a great orange metal stand when backwards. also, try placing a backwards (or not) dresser behind a bed to create a built-in headboard/shelf
  2. use panels, partitions and screens to ‘break up’ space in rooms. add tall plants or other objects in front of any gaps these items create next to walls
  3. when taking pictures, the happy home camera gives the best angles. you can even pull it out past the room’s boundaries for a fuller room view. however, you’ll have to hold it there while simultaneously taking a picture
  4. see which items can be staggered to create dimension. a great example is the plant partition which looks great behind most dressers with items displayed on top
  5. even if you don’t decorate all rooms, if you’re planning on taking pictures, it is great to have multiple rooms simply for the doors. you can change these doors to add aesthetic and realness to your rooms

Theft isn't victimless and yes I did take it personally.

(warning: long story)

This was about 2 years ago while I was living at my buddys place. His place wasn’t in the best part of town, so theft happens all the time and for the large part most of these crimes are met with a “sucks to be you” attitude from the police who then create a report and forget anything happened entirely.

OK, so i wake up early on Thursday morning with a call from my roommate who was running to work at 5AM and he explains the detached garage has been broken into. The thief broke in through the window and stole a bunch of stuff with highlights being Milwaukee drills, motorcycle jackets, and the receiver and the sub from one of those “surround sound systems in a box” packages deals but leaves the speakers around the rest of the place. Saying I was livid is an understatement, I work hard for my things and have no intention of replacing them so some dick can sell them for a very small profit. So for roughly then next 4 days my focus is entirely on this and you’ll see why shortly.

«I thought back over the years with Ted, trying to find what I might have overlooked before. He was not a violent person. When we argued he was always calm and reasonable; I was the one who lost control and yelled. I could count on the fingers of one hand the times that Ted had lost his temper since I’d known him. One of the times was the afternoon Tina and I had stopped by his room and found he had redecorated with a new television, a new stereo, a new typewriter, and several other things I knew he didn’t have the money to buy. “You’re nothing but a thief!” I had blurted out.

He grabbed my arm. “If you ever tell anyone about this, I’ll break your fucking neck.”

Later that night he came to my place crying, saying he didn’t understand himself or why he took those things. 

He had sworn up and down that he wouldn’t steal any more, but what stood out in my mind now, looking back, was his threat to break my fucking neck.»
