These days everybody praises steve jobs, as the best thing since sliced bread and therefore, everyone is on youtube watching the “stay young, stay foolish!” video (in fact while i’m writing this, a friend of mine just walked in the room with a shinning, silver and white, brand new ipod in her hand, surely her boyfriend’s christmas present).
However, I do find this next video much more interesting (Atlas Shrugged reloaded i guess).

By the end of the eighties aired on portuguese television (and other countries as well) a tv show based on the story of Switzerland national hero William Tell, called Crossbow.

The other day I was surfing the web and accidentally stumbled upon a site dedicated to the series. Great stuff!!

As i recall it had a very dark atmosfere (both in clothes, houses and landscapes) portraying very well, what i believe, should be life in the middle ages: dirty and gloomy…. Unlike more recent tv shows where characters look and feel 20th century with fancy, shinning clothes and fashion hairstyle.
