"We get chatting to Marco who was around for Paolo Nutini arriving and had given him a quick hand shake then sloped off, (you know how cool guys like to play it), he is really a Brit Indie lad at heart trapped inside the body of an Italian guy, his taste in music is fabulous".
maybe also Italian lad at heart inside an English guy :)

My sister sometimes worked as "umbrella girl" :) on the grid.
I drove some cars on this legendary F1 circuit, I know so well every corner since I was a child.
Some time ago the new McLaren MP4-12C was presented in Milan...'cause in Milan, England, we support McLaren, not "Ferraglia"... and McLaren motto is: "good enough is not good."
Debut at Goodwood festival of speed (do you remember Milano Alfa Romeo there)
Hamilton and Button testing it
After releasing their first piece of music - which NME termed an 'event release, the likes of which we haven't seen in aeons' - the band will be giving fans a first live taste of their premiere album, which is proving to be one of the most hotly anticipated live debuts ever seen.

When I read stuff about money I never believe at first. One day you're the worst in this, the other day worst in that, one day you're even the city most visited by aliens, it also depends on who's the one saying those things. Jealous ones are always ready to throw mud on you.
Of course Milan is not cheap and it's expensive: but "most expensive in the world" could be for tourists. Shopping in expensive fashion places or having a meal in a luxurious restaurant in the centre. Then so many cities are so expensive.
Watching the film "Blue Moon rising" about Manchester City, I noticed a sentence they said: we never left the city. Me too, I always lived in Milan: when sometimes I tried to live in other places (but for job), I came back immediately and/or angry (where the f**k have I been to?). In the end your city is your city.
And if Milan is really so expensive for tourists, then visit me :P

Liam Gallagher (not watching tv tonight :) and Nicole Appleton made a rare red carpet appearance together at the Draper Awards.
Pretty Green were delighted to be chosen ahead of big names such as Paul Smith, Boss Orange, Polo Ralph Lauren & Tommy Hilfiger.
Richard Ralph, CEO at Pretty Green commented: "Pretty Green is dedicated to producing high quality pieces which focus on British-centric style and design". Richard added: "Being nominated for the Drapers Awards highlights that Pretty Green is an established player in the menswear market and is on the same level as highly respected brands".
Speaking about the achievement, Liam Gallagher commented: "A year ago I set up Pretty Green to make the kind of clothes that I wanted to wear and being recognised by Drapers today shows how far we've come. Keep the faith, beware of darkness".
Everyone here at Pretty Green would like to thank all of our customers for your continued support!
Oasis’s third album, ‘Be Here Now‘ (the one with Milano Lambretta on the cover), the follow up to 1995’s (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, still holds the UK’s record for the biggest first day sales after it sold 350,000 in 24 hours back in 1997. The Brit Rock legends, who recently split, went on to sell approx. 70 million albums world wide.
‘Progress’, which is the band’s first album in 16 years to feature Robbie Williams, grabbed this sales record just a day after the band performed together for the first time since their reunion on Sunday night’s ‘X Factor’.
As if one record weren’t enough, Take That also crushed another one when their tour became the biggest and fastest-selling in UK history earlier this month.
Martin Talbot from the Official Charts Company, commented about Take That sales: “This is a phenomenal achievement from an already phenomenally successful band.”
Take That perform at the City of Manchester stadium on 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10,11 and 12 June 2011 (all sold out, 8 dates also @ Wembley), and after England they come to Milan San Siro stadium on 12 July (not sold out :)

The greatest Italian stylists create their masterpieces in Milano. This is the birthplace of "Made in Italy": the atmosphere, the events, and the products of Milano are copied all over the world!
The most interesting things to see, its most fascinating places... only true "milanesi" know where find these places.
The best shopping tour in the world capital of fashion
"We try to follow the Mediterranean diet because it's healthier and we believe the products used in it are to be preserved," said Josephine O'Reilly, who was visiting Italy from Dublin, Ireland. "Even if the originals could cost more than others, they are totally worth their prices."
Today I contacted the English artist Paul Cocksedge and unfortunately "the Kiss" won't be in Milan as last Christmas, but in London.
There will be different lights works in Milan, but people are still allowed to kiss each other :)
Rumours say, "a source said" lol, they're working to make Mario join Milan next June. He's an AC Milan fan (and Ibra fan, his idol when he was at Inter), and soon or later Mario@Milan will happen. Really, it was funny to see Mario and Galliani interviewed and saying there's nothing between them, but it was so clear the contrary ahaha and they were smiling :D without saying a clear "no" about it...
Mario was also called to play for Italy national team vs Romania in Austria.
Meanwhile, and this is a surprising breaking news, Barbara Berlusconi, daughter of the Italian Prime Minister and AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi, is gonna work very soon in the team staff, and someday could become AC Milan president.
So, here's the situation :) ...AC Milan of course won Milan derby :D
I know people who in September already think about what to do on 31 December. Quite absurd... as you know, as a good retro-Englishman :), conservative Englishman ahaha I celebrate the new year on 25 March.
Let's add an event to the calendar. On 31 December I think I'm just going to a pub or club, as the Beatles did in Milan, just one place. Soon also the Hollywood Milano club will announce the party for that night, so we could dance, preparing for Beady Eye concerts :)
Keep on voting for history, need some more votes before 20 December, so we are among the first fifty people and Fred Perry (yes him, from above :) will decide who's the winner. If we win, those 5,000£ would be spent for the Beady Eye night :)

Can't buy me love
Baby's in black... and I'm feeling OasisBlues :)
I feel fine
Beady Eye released the track as a free download (video soon), and so far the reaction has been mixed to say the least.
Now some sources ("a source said" :) are claiming that the track has only been released as a promotional track.
So what do we have to expect from this new band? They're not Oasis.
The 20 seconds we had heard at first were a rock song. Bring the Light is rock 'n' roll :). It's Jerry Lee Lewis, it's Elvis. From Liam's Oasis last song, Boy with the Blues, he kept the piano and the female voices. And the "come on" :)
Alan is right, we have to wait for the album. It takes some time to appreciate completely a song, in fact the more I listen to it, the more I like it. The road of a song is long and winding :), then you put memories on it, nice ones if it's happy as this one. Still to be honest, when I heard those 20 seconds I was super-excited, and when I first listened to Bring the Light I was disappointed, 'cause I was expecting something different: or, better said, I was expecting always the same kind of music I was used to listen from them. I thought: oh mamma mia, Noel is gonna have a laugh ^_^. Especially those female voices at the end (and Liam's) sounded strange, as a cartoon. I was wondering if I clicked on the right song :)
But now I think it would be good to have some rock'n'roll tunes as that one. Of course we'll keep the interest on Beady Eye. Going to their concerts will be something different. To say it all: listening to them, I'm dancing at home :), as I did when I was a child, listening to Michael Jackson.
Usually the people jump at Oasis concerts, or "fight". With a song as Bring the Light, we would dance. I've been to so many concerts but I was always jumping: the only one where I danced I remember it was at my first Scottish Franz Ferdinand gig (the band born to make girls dance) in Milan, had so much fun. Sara, the Scottish girlfriend of Noel (they met in a dancing place as Ibiza), likes them more than Oasis :). But Noel also worked with dance music, in his youth and also later with Chemical Brothers.
Judging from some unreleased songs we have, Noel's tunes sound sad, while Liam's (too) happy... don't know how much the people will like them. Maybe Oasis should reform, to have "a balance" :)
And they will, as Scottish Alan :) repeated again the other day.
Beady Eye, totally unexpected: well done Liam!

The red diavolo wears Prada :)
This is the most interesting thing a woman could find, lol ! (it's the pure truth)
I don't think many would agree but let's do something similar on 19-20 November weekend, another "Oasis weekend" event: on 19 Alan is in Torino for the new film Upside Down (free entrance), then he said also Milan again. We could go and see his documentary with him, featuring Oasis, and also the new film Blue Moon Rising with Noel, I ordered the dvd and it's arriving in some days.
No, Kate Moss is not coming with Alan, she comes to Italy only for love: her first boyfriend was Italian (they still work together), she had lesbian sex with Courtney Love in Milan, and she got married in Italy recently.
As one of my favourite songs, 'Stay young', says: stay in bed and sleep all day as long as it's Sunday :)

Of course the logo is Milan flag, Saint George's England cross.
This is a preview, with the typical milanese "panettone" Christmas cake, but there will be everything: desktop cases, cd holders, home items, jewels, umbrellas, clothes, bicycles with names in Milan dialect ”Sciur” (Mister), “Sciura” (Mrs), “Bagaii” (luggage), “Tusa” (girl) :), etc. even motorbikes, this is a MV Agusta Brutale.
The first one here is by Sweet Years, the Milan brand by Maldini and Vieri (and Melissa Satta), Liam Gallagher met the AC Milan legend.
"Vespa 50 Special" by Lunapop, this Italian band is the one of the song on the right column "...we love England", but too much :), in fact they copied "Better day" from Ocean Colour Scene in another song, with even the same title. That's called a cover, darling.
The Kinks, "Victoria"
...I could add a thousand songs...

Today, November 2 (that is the Day of the Dead) in my church (Sant'Ambrogio, that is the patron saint of the city) and at the main graveyard, the mayor of Milan, the redhead Mrs Letizia Moratti, paid homage, among others, to the founder of AC Milan, and now he's in the Famedio among the most important people of the city. Kilpin was from Nottingham, the city of Robin Hood (today we have Robinho playing, nicknamed Robinhood :). In Nottingham they have similar trams to our modern ones.
A few months ago there was a football museum in Milan main square, and also a competition to win some little prizes. The people were in a queue (Oasis beautiful song "Part of the queue" :), great to play by guitar, also in the film North Country with Charlize Theron). We were there to phototograph the Champions League trophy and answer to a question: a man was saying the years, and the people had to answer which European team won the trophy. I knew all of them and even told the answers to the people, but when it was my turn, I was excited on the stage, it's ironic and of course I answered a wrong one ahahaha I had to say Nottingham Forest, now a not so big team but in the past they won it 2 times, in 1979 and 1980.
Brief biography, this is very interesting:
Kilpin was born in Nottingham in 1870. He grew up with nine older brothers and sisters at 129 Mansfield Road. After leaving school he worked as a lace warehouse assistant in the city. He was a keen footballer and, aged only 13, he had taken part at the foundation of a small amateur club named after Italian national hero Giuseppe Garibaldi, whose players wore the typical red shirts.
But he didn't play for Nottingham Forest and the other team from there, Notts County (the oldest professional football club in the world, 1862). Kilpin's footballing career went on with the now defunct Notts Olympic and then for St. Andrews, a church team based near the Forest Recreation Ground on Gregory Boulevard.

(Hotel of North and of the English)
in Milan, where AC Milan was founded, near AC Milan
headquarters today, now called Principe di Savoia Hotel
where also Oasis stayed
He became the first-ever Englishman to play football abroad. By 1898, Kilpin had already left Turin and settled in Milan with fellow Englishman Samuel Richard Davies, where he met some English people in a bar (our Football English Pub ahahaha) living here (as today still 7,000 English live in Milan), as Edwards. And the following year, the duo, with some Italians, was among the charter members of A.C. Milan, which was originally named Milan Foot-Ball and Cricket Club. In honor of its origins, the club has retained the English spelling of its city's name, instead of changing it to the Italian Milano.
The newly founded club proved immediately successful, as they won the national title in 1901, only the second season of their history. Kilpin spent nine seasons at club, and led the Rossoneri (redblack) to two more titles in 1906 and 1907.
