[nonostantement #119] - solo for flute / kfc in gaza / toy stories

Now with more music videos!

Welcome to nonostantement:
a weekly newsletter with 
comical, unresolved and peculiar stuff found all over the Internet.

Hello there, as you may know I am Joele and, for a living, I create and manage online strategies for brands and companies. I am Italian but now based in Barcelona.
How are we coping with the new Coronavirus around here, you ask? Story time: yesterday I saw three random guys starting chatting in a queue in front of a pharmacy. After a bit, one of them rolled a joint and they all lowered their masks to share it. We got 99 problems but anxiety ain't one 🤦‍♂️
In the last couple of weeks I have been listening to a LOT of classical music but as a soundtrack for this mail I would like to suggest you this track.


— Toy Stories, Gabriele Galimberti

  • Toy Stories, Gabriele Galimberti
    ”For over two years, I visited more than 50 countries and created colorful images of boys and girls in their homes and neighborhoods with their most prized possessions: their toys. From Texas to India, Malawi to China, Iceland, Morocco, and Fiji, I recorded the spontaneous and natural joy that unites kids despite their diverse backgrounds. Whether the child owns a veritable fleet of miniature cars or a single stuffed monkey, the pride that they have is moving, funny, and thought provoking.”
