Vivere cercando ancora il grande amore.
Vivere come se mai dovessimo morire.
Vivere per poi capire all’improvviso…
Perché, perché, perché
la vita non è vita…
…che in fondo questa vita tu non l’hai vissuta mai.
…perché non l’hai vissuta mai.

Cuando uno esta cansado de todo

He aqui la solucion.

Se casa la Andre!


Finalmente, después de idas, venidas, años, cosas, casas, quesos, ya se viene el casamiento!

¡Felicitaciones a los novios!  

Contra viento y marea


Contra viento y marea
Propongamos sin miedo
Una gran asamblea

Donde allí se proclame
Que la gente se ame
Contra viento y marea

Desterrar la codicia
Tirar la injusticia
Desde una azotea

Y colgar un letrero
Que diga "Te Quiero"
Y todos lo vean

Contra viento y marea
Avancemos con todo
Sin mancharnos con brea

Si hace falta en la piedra
Plantaremos la hiedra
Contra viento y marea

Esta fue mi propuesta
Tal vez lo que resta
Y todos desean

Es estar donde vibre
La ansiedad de ser libres
Contra viento y marea

Quiera Dios que así sea

Here I am, blogging about blogs. Truly, ’tis a most navel-gazing community. Of course, when I type community, I’m actually trying to convey the idea of a group of people that write in their own corner on the Internet. Usenet it’s not.

In any case, my point (abridged edition) is this: Spaces is chock-full of angsty teenagers, empty or one-post spaces, and people predominantly from the US, Mexico, Brazil and Asia.

And with this, tonight’s pearl of wisdom is delivered. Lights out.

Seattle in songs

What songs remind me of Seattle? We’ll, here’s a list I compiled some time ago… Try to figure out the recurring theme here.

  • Here comes the rain again (Eurythmics)
  • Queen of Rain (Roxette)
  • Have you ever seen the rain (whose was this?)
  • Rain (Madonna)
  • I wish it would rain now (Phil Collins)
  • November Rain (GnR)
  • Crying in the rain (A-ha)
  • Red rain (Peter Gabriel)
  • Heavy Cloud No Rain (Sting)
  • Rain, rain (Cher)
  • Rain, tax, it’s inevitable (Celine Dion)
  • Come rain or come shine (Sinatra)
  • I can’t stand the rain (Tina Turner)
  • After the rain has fallen (Sting)
  • Watercolors in the rain (Roxette)
  • Purple rain (Prince)
  • Raining Men (although a bit too cheery)
  • Singing in the rain (ditto)
  • Mil horas (Los abuelos de la nada)


Shamelessly stolen from….

Plato’s contemporary Isocrates develops the point. In an address praising the way Athens used to be run, he argues that those societies which believe good citizens are produced by scrupulously precise and detailed laws are blind to the truth. If that were the case, he goes on, a state simply had to copy a successful country’s law-codes to solve all its problems. In fact, he says, good citizens are the product not of laws but of the habits of everyday life. Men from an evil background will not hesitate to break the law, however minutely codified; those who are well brought up will respect the law, however simple.

Consequently, Isocrates continues, ‘our forefathers did not make it their first priority to discover the best ways to punish the lawless, but instead to produce citizens who would never dream of doing anything wrong’. They did this, he says, by developing a youth policy, ensuring young men had a job suited to their capacities, while keeping a generally watchful and zero-tolerant eye on them.

Plato’s analysis was different. He reckoned the key to success was education based not on rules but on principles. Then, he goes on, proper behaviour (‘being silent in the presence of elders, giving up your seat to them, standing when they enter the room’) is automatic, and issues of ‘hairstyle, clothing, footwear and the general way one presents oneself’ solve themselves. ‘Only an idiot would legislate on such matters,’ he affirms.

From government to businesses to schools, the following iron law applies: the fatter the rule-book, the worse the organisation.

Para reírse un poco excepto cuando uno se da cuenta de que esto va en serio:


Alguien quiere un Fiat?

Mi hermano me pasó un link muy gracioso… Disfruten.
