Summer of sports: something is moving on the sports department at amazon, should I get the Camelbak Octane?


I'm tracking many items at the amazon sites, and today there are many items getting lowering prices on the sports department in all of the amazon locales, mostly uk, probably due to their summer sport campaign. More than 100 have dropped price lower than my best track price.

Remember that if you are from europe you will get a free delivery for amazon items if you spend at least 25 pounds, here you can check for your country, maybe not the best time due to the exchange pound-euro is high, but if the offer is good enough is always a good time. I reckon that you should always check for a free delivery buying online, it gets you the oportunity to buy in small amounts, as you tend to group as many items as possible to minimize the delivery expenses for item. So, amazon.co.uk's free delivery is your best bet here.


I am searching for some equipment for my mountain bike routes, I want a new helmet and a Camelbak hydration pack, with a waist strap or the other option is a good backpack and a Camelbak reservoir, as it seems those are the best. I have yet to decide on the helment, the ones I like I found them a little expensive, but for good security it pays. For the hydration pack I found those a little expensive too, but in other sites those are even more expensive and if you add it the delivery cost it raises too much. I love the Camelbak Octane, what you think?


Here you can check some interesting items that got my attention due to their price drop, but yet has to decide what to buy because of the great number of items



Woww! So many items to check, when I get any of them I post a review, there are many on the way, but the lack of time as always....sorry guys

Ofertas en hogar: cubo de la basura Hailo, tostadora Bosch y regleta Belkin Surgemaster

Os dejo unas cuantas cosas interesantes para mejorar vuestra casa, primero, un cubo de la basura, qué mejor que poner un poco de orden en casa y qué mejor que empezar por los residuos, 2 comparimentos, residuos y orgánica.
Como me gustan las tostadoras, ésta la quiero regalar a mis padres, siempre se quejan que tienen que tostar el pan de "payés" 2 veces, primero por un lado y luego por el otro, nada mejor que una tostadora para rebanadas grandes y con un calentador de bollos, ideal para calentar los croissants.
Una pila de petaca para el despertador, maldito, estoy harto de ponerlo en hora cada vez que se va la luz... esto de vivir en un pueblo a veces también tiene sus cosas malas.
Una regleta nueva, me encantan los productos Belkin, tienen algo especial, a ver si así consigo poner un poco de orden detrás del ordenador.

Recordad que a parte de comprar a partir de nuestros enlaces de amazon.es o utilizar Wishlist Manager.

Best all-time movies. 2012 edition

Vertigo by Alfred Hitchcock has been named "best all-time film" beating Citizen Kane by Orson Welles, according to the latest survey by the magazine Sight and Sound Festival of British Film (BFI). This specialized publication conducts such surveys every ten years and the film directed by Welles had occupied the top spot on the list of the top 50 films over the past five decades. In the last survey, the experts placed in first position Vertigo, the thriller directed by the British director in 1958, surpassing by 34 votes to Citizen Kane, and not included in the list any film shot in the last decade. Those experts in films, a total of 846 distributors, critics, academics and writers, were asked to rate the work according to their importance in film history, their findings aesthetic or the impact it had every film on a personal level in based on their own vision of cinema.

With a cast that includes actors like James Stewart and Kim Novak, Vertigo is about a retired police officer, Scotty Ferguson, who is afraid of heights. In the latest survey the magazine conducted a decade ago, the Hitchcock movie, the British director himself referred to as his "most personal film," had been only five votes to Citizen Kane (1941). Of these two movies

I loved Vertigo and I love that it got the title of the best movie. As with Welles's film, Vertigo received mixed reviews when it opened but has gained prestige over time. In the classification of BFI, Yasujiro Ozu's film Tokyo Story (1953) went from fifth to third place, while La Regie du Jeu (1939) by Jean Renoir lost a position until the fourth.


Among the top ten films were two new entries: Man With a Movie Camera (1929) by Dziga Vertov, at number eight, and The Passion Of Joan Of Arc (1927) by Carl Theodor Dreyer, in ninth position. Is surprising how many movies of before the 30' are in the top ten, and not even one of beyond the 70'. Probably many of us have not seen many of these movies even many of us see a lot of movies, in my case at least one for very 3-4 days, but today's mindset probably is not prepared for this kind of old good movies, maybe all these critics are stuck in time. Of the selected works, the most recent was 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) by Stanley Kubrick, in sixth place.

Thanks for reading!
