bullets and drops II

It was three forty five in the morning when the mobile phone rang, it was Frank again... but what in the hell does he want at this time of the night?...

Frank: What ya doin'?
Volan: What ya think pussy?
Frank: Sorry for disturbing, but er...well...
Volan: Don't be sorry, just do not do it again.
Frank: I met Lady Miss Happiness today...

At that point I hung up.... went to the kitchen, made a coffee, no sugar, no milk... three forty eight a.m, the phone rang again.

Volan: What in the fuck are you talking about.
Frank: Mmmm do you remember her?... she used to be a pain in the ass.
Volan: Well she is.
Frank: She asked whether you are fine...

Frank: sorry for disturbing you...er...w…

Check out this tutorial. Taken from 'computer arts' magazine.



Screen printing is a tricky, messy process, but it’s the less than perfect areas that create that distinctive look. Here, Computer Arts regular Derek Lea reveals how to simulate silk-screened imperfections in Photoshop... (start)

This is an e-mail and digital invitation going on around the world. Let's switch off the lights, tv, lap tops and other electrical devices tomorrow the 17th of April 2007 from 19:53 to 20:00. It is just 7 minutes and the benefits for the planet will be notorious. Please spread the word!.

I am not fond chained e-mails but I reckon this is a very good reason.

get the glass

Get the glass es un juego de mesa producido en 3d como parte de la nueva campana de 'got milk' en USA. El objetivo del juego es conducir a la familia Adachi sobre el tablero hacia la nevera, entonces ellos pueden obtener la leche.

Usando el raton, el jugador lanza el dado y empieza a avanzar. Al ir avanzando, las casillas generan uno de tres tipos de cartas. Las cartas de la suerte autorizan al jugador para avanzar, las cartas malas devuelven al jugador y las cartas 'inteligentes' requieren que el jugador resuelva una pregunta y asi continuar. Los agentes que cuidan el refrigerador van tras las huellas del jugador y estan al acecho... el resto es innecesario... Interesante el juegito, eso si...toma su tiempo. Los graficos son impresionantes, la interactividad muy interesante al igual que toda la narrativa que maneja. 'Get the glass' es una muy buena respuesta al problema de como implementar un juego de mesa en una pieza grafica digital interactiva agregandole co…

9 de abril 1948 el dia que se jodio colombia

9 de Abril, una fecha que debemos recordar toda nuestra vida. El caudillo del pueblo, Jorge Eliecer Gaitan habia sido asesinado una lluviosa y sucia tarde de abril. Eso dia nos jodimos, o mejor nos jodieron. Desde ese dia, este pais, olvidado por Dios se desangra en un guerra civil. De esos tiempos se recuerda la lucha entre Liberales y Conservadores, ese tiempo se ha llamado 'la violencia'. La gran mayoria de Colombianos somos descendientes de esa generacion tragica, de esa generacion que hizo del imperio de la muerte su pan diario. Hoy en dia, los protagonistas han cambiando, Ya no son Rojos a Azules (ahora son uno solo, corruptos politicos que negocian nuestra riqueza al calor de un whiskey mal habido). Ahora son paramilitares, narcotraficantes y guerrilla, todos hambriento de un poder que el 'oro blanco' les proporciona. Solo una cosa no cambia, la victima. Recordemos esta fecha con tristeza pero tambien con valor para cambiar un pais del que ya nadie se acuerda, d…

Gilbert and George

British sculptors. Gilbert Proesch (Dolomites, Italy, 17 Sept 1943) and George Passmore (Plymouth, Devon, 8 Jan 1942) met in 1967 as students at St Martin’s School of Art in London. By 1969 they were reacting against approaches to sculpture then dominant at St Martin’s, which they regarded as elitist and poor at communicating outside an art context. Their strategy was to make themselves into sculpture, so sacrificing their separate identities to art and turning the notion of creativity on its head. To that end Gilbert and George became interchangeable cyphers and their surnames were dispensed with.(more)

I want to love you tender

Just to carry on with the saga of super trash musical video productions I want to share this Jewel dismally performed by Finish artists Army and Danny once upon the 80's (of course).







Siguiendo con la saga de super trash video-producciones quiero compartir esta joya pobremente desempenada por los artistas Finlandeses Army & Danny, por alla en los 80's por supuesto.



It's only a line but I like it, I like it.

Después de un accidente en las islas Fiyi el año pasado, el guitarrista de los Rolling Stones Keith Richards, de 63 años, escribe otra página en su particular leyenda al asegurar que inhaló durante una juerga las cenizas de su padre, fallecido en el 2002. (leer). La entrevista fue realizada por la revista Britanica NME (rock) aqui se puede leer la entrevista original. Que divertido que es Keith Richards.

In an awesome interview given to British rock magazine NME, Rolling Stones lead guitar's Keith Richards admits having snorted the ashes of his own father. I could not help but laugh after reading that part of the interview. Well actually the whole article is very interesting for whose who love the BEST ROCK BAND EVER. (read)

THE SICK MUSE

THE SICK MUSE
Poor Muse, alas, what ails thee, then, to-day?
Thy hollow eyes with midnight visions burn,
Upon thy brow in alternation play,
Folly and Horror, cold and taciturn.
Have the green lemure and the goblin red,
Poured on thee love and terror from their urn?
Or with despotic hand the nightmare dread
Deep plunged thee in some fabulous Minturne?
Would that the breast where so deep thoughts arise,
Breathed forth a healthful perfume with thy sighs;
Would that thy Christian blood ran wave by wave
In rhythmic sounds the antique numbers gave,
When Phoebus shared his alternating reign
With mighty Pan, lord of the ripening grain.

Charles Baudelaire

Islas Malvinas hace 25 abriles

Hace 25 años, un siniestro régimen militar, cuya popularidad caía en picado, ordenó el desembarco de jóvenes soldados argentinos en las islas Malvinas sin una táctica ni una estrategia para enfrentar al poderío bélico británico. Preocupada por el creciente descontento popular, por la crisis económica y los atisbos de reorganización de los partidos políticos, la dictadura que gobernaba Argentina desde 1976 vio en la recuperación de la soberanía del archipiélago una oportunidad para alargar su agonía.(mas). dos interesantes videos en el link de abajo.

1982: Argentina invades Falklands
Argentina has invaded the British territory of the Falkland Islands in the south Atlantic.

The islands, off the coast of Argentina, have been a cause of friction between the two countries since Britain claimed them in 1833. (read)

eternal drafts, dusty, salty winds

Frank has just sent me this picture to my e-mail. He is an old friend of mine, a young brilliant lad I met two years ago.

Frank is a loner, so am I, he plays with fire, he's going beyond himself he often says. I can scarcely understand Frank's behavior, He loves Rossini and Albion. I prefer Rachmaninoff and Brahms. Both of us, dwell the murky night. The moon, reddish tonight, hides cunningly behind foggy, milky, dirty clouds. Frank goes beyond himself, I remain still watching the boats sailing away towards the sun, Frank lives in the sun, Frank is made of fire, and plays with it. I left him sail, eternal drafts, dusty, salty winds will push his ship to a circular flame, in which we all shall die.
