The Best Books I Read In 2016


I like reading books. A lot. Mostly fiction. Twenty-sixteen was a great year in that respect, I managed to break my all-time records and finish more than 50 books (some of them were graphic novels so it may not be as impressive as it sounds).

There's a news website called The Atlantic ... READ MORE

The Best Albums of 2016


Music-wise, this has been such a tremendous year for me. Living in Toronto and having a fair amount of free time on my hands, I was able to listen to over a hundred albums and attend 15+ concerts. More than any other year, I've delved into different sub-genres, reviewed a bunch of albums for the mighty ... READ MORE

Messa – ‘Belfry’: Not many bands are brave enough to produce inventive and personable music.

Album Review – Belfry by Messa


MESSA BELFRY Released on May 16, 2016 (Aural Music)

Review: Doom metal is booming like cocaine was during the 1970s. The number of bands releasing new music or emerging on the scene during 2016 has been tremendous. The characteristic slow, heavy, and dark sound that Black Sabbath ... READ MORE

The Certainties Of Life Ever-changing


My ideas on life have all changed dramatically over the past 2 1/2 years of my life. If you would have told me 6 years ago that I'd be where I am living like I do today, I would have called bullshit on you and said that it was impossible.

Guess what? Life is ever-fucking-changing in the most ... READ MORE

Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining


Unlike around my last 'life' post, things have been somewhat serene lately. The big life changes I mentioned there haven't happened, and may not even do, because at the last moment things, as they often and uncontrollably tend to, changed, and so I find myself still here in Toronto feeling a lot more relaxed and content than ...

Top 5 Films | Toronto After Dark Film Festival 2016


This post is a throwback and a departure from my recent ones. In appearance not as personal, but after all, I am who I am, and this is what I like. Among the things that make me glad I'm alive, and that bring happiness to my soul.

I had a lot of fun writing this ... READ MORE

Life Is (Mostly) OK


It's been a whirlwind of a time since I last wrote here, some big life changes are coming for me and my mind has been filled with confusion. I've been having a lot of mixed feelings about life and how things sometimes are out of our hands (aren't they always? isn't control an illusion, anyway?).

Last week we ... READ MORE

The Best Thing About A White Night

Eduardo de Fuentes Ceballos - The Best Thing About A White Night

It's been an exciting week since last I wrote here. Of all the great things that happen during Toronto's very short summer (although it's technically autumn now, I still see it as a summer event), one of the best is Nuit Blanche, which took place ... READ MORE

Welcome to my Blog. Iteration 2.0, Unfiltered.

Eduardo de Fuentes Ceballos -My Blog. Iteration 2.0, Unfiltered

Blogging. I'll have another go at it. My last Blog which was awesomely called Charmful Dead Things (if I must say so myself), was mostly a lot of fun to write, design and setup. It lead me to read a lot and learn most of what I know about the infinite ... READ MORE

Revival: If you like Lovecraft, you should read this book

Book Review - Revival by Stephen King

revival-stephen-king_book-review Stephen King's Revival is a very difficult book to review and recommend without revealing too much of the story, especially its conclusion. In fact, Revival had been on my to-read pile since its release, but when my friend, and fellow Charmful Dead Things ... READ MORE
