Tolkien and the Age of Myths 1

J. R. R. Tolkien – the Age of Myths… and modern fantasies (Part 1 – an imaginary history of the world) Having recently lost myself in The Hobbit lore yet again, due to the final movie release this winter, I have decided to revisit J. R. R. Tolkien’s main works – The Lord of the […]

Luke Evans: Quotes

Luke Evans: Quotes

I’ve been meaning to put this together ever since I wrote about Dracula Untold. To read the interviews and learn more about the man who, once again, brought Vlad the Impaler back to life. I was worried that I would not find what I was looking for, but I was wrong. Luke Evans is a […]

Alltime10s and Alltime Conspiracies

Alltime10s and Alltime Conspiracies

A while ago I wrote an article about Canadian youtuber Matthew Santoro and I mentioned the fact that I found his channel via Alltime10s. Now I’m going to give a “shout out” to those brilliant Brits, who made me learn so many things regarding any topic you can think about: history, conspiracy, science, politics, music, […]

Dracula Untold

December 22, 2014
Dracula Untold

“My father was a great man. A hero, so they say. Sometimes the world does not need another hero. Sometimes, what it needs… is a monster“. After months of waiting, I finally got to see Dracula Untold. I’m sure that everybody knows who Dracula is and that most of you have most probably already watched […]

On the Palatine Hill

December 19, 2014
On the Palatine Hill

I’m ascending the Palatine Hill and my dusty feet feel the history that lies beneath them; the sun burns my face and I look both amazed and saddened at the stony walls that were once rooms in the emperor’s palace. * Everything constantly changes: palaces became ruins, emperors turned into ashes: only the sun smiles […]

Monarchy with David Starkey

Monarchy with David Starkey

Dear readers of our site, history lovers and anglophiles, I am going to leave behind for a moment the comic and gruesomeness of the Horrible Histories books and I am going to talk about a TV series that I really enjoyed watching during my school and university years. Every time the course about England’s history […]

Ode on a Grecian Urn

December 12, 2014
Ode on a Grecian Urn

Thou still unravish’d bride of quietness, Thou foster-child of silence and slow time, Sylvan historian, who canst thus express A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme: What leaf-fring’d legend haunts about thy shape Of deities or mortals, or of both, In Tempe or the dales of Arcady? What men or gods are these? What […]

Ozymandias

December 11, 2014
Ozymandias

I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand, Half sunk, a shatter’d visage lies, whose frown And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamp’d on […]

Ithaca

December 11, 2014
Ithaca

As you set out for Ithaka hope the voyage is a long one, full of adventure, full of discovery. Laistrygonians and Cyclops, angry Poseidon—don’t be afraid of them: you’ll never find things like that on your way as long as you keep your thoughts raised high, as long as a rare excitement stirs your spirit […]

Thinking of London

July 5, 2014
Thinking of London

I cannot work or sleep; instead, I’m counting the days until I get there. It’s all about floating and daydreaming, as if I’m falling in love again with the city where Copperfield strolled aimlessly, lonely and abandoned, or the place of so many crimes Sherlock strove to solve. Yes, I’m in love with London ever […]
