You still got it

Sorry dudes, romance ain't dead for this blog. Not even close.


And The Whispers is a good deal to remind us we 're not all superficial douchebags or cynic-driven beings catching romantic moments only between us and a full-extra burger.

You still got it people. Trust me.

Readjustment tune

Man, it's unbelievable how time flies when you're on vacation and how quickly you adjust to the citylife, from the first minute you set foot at home. For these last hours, before I head back to "normality" and everyday life, I selected a sort of weird tune with ups and downs, shiny and obscure phases, that blends a feeling of classical and '70s mood, to match the anticipated mood swings of the readjustment. 


Having devoted himself to music, Janko Nilović composed this magical piece of music in the '70s, probably watching the sun rise and wanting to make the perfect soundtrack for it.

Dream prelude

Nujabes is a Japanese hip-hop producer and dj who, sadly, I wasn't aware of till about 3 or 4 weeks ago, when this lovely gem reached my ears and made it through my top introduction-to-dreams tune.


Tragic thing is that as I was searchin' through his music tryin' to get to know him through his dope beats, I found out that he's no longer with us, as of 2010. So I guess I'll be hangin' around in his soundcloud page for a while, making up for lost time.

Cruel summer

Not quite a summerish tune to fill your vacation usb stick with. Unless you're Greek tryin' to survive this summer.


The lyrics of this song are so unbelievably powerful and so incredibly gloomy, that are too much to bear along with this dark tune. So, I'll stick with the instrumental version, till the next bright disco tune comes along and brings a little sunshine in here.

* For those who don't know, this is actually a traditional American gospel song originally recorded by Bozie Sturdivant in 1941, but composed in 1934 by Claude Ely, whose version was recorded in 1953.

To all fuckin' Kens

I just started watching "Breaking bad". I know, I know, I'm a little late, but I'll grasp the chance to use the "better late than never" saying and move on with my point.

There's an episode in season 1 (episode 4 to be exact) that ends with one of the most powerful and beautiful scenes I've seen lately and really identified with: the brilliant KenWins scene. In that scene -for those of you who are even later than me- our protagonist, in a desperate moment of coughing and dealing with a messed up life by lung cancer -and other stuff-, faces this dude, an obnoxious yuppie, one of those who drive those convertible shit that cost about 3 years' salaries to most people (or whatever, I don't know), perfect slaves to capital, with bluetooths coming out of their ears. One of those dudes with a "Ken Wins" license plate that steal parking spaces when you've already set your alarm to park, take your place in line when you look the other way, humiliate people who they consider inferior to them, have no culture whatsoever and serve nothing else but money. This dude, was the same dude that stole the parking space to our protagonist the other day, and so he decides to do something about it.

                                           

Maybe all these fuckin' Kens will stop winning someday. Maybe their capital serving "values" will go down the drain and maybe when that happens, there won't be any more of these governments and screwball country "unions" that reflect the exact same thing that all these Kens believe in and drive people and countries to a living hell in the name of money.

Now wipe the tears from your eyes and press play to the tune that led this awesome scene to its ending and made me lose my sleep for a couple of hours.
