Ich bin fantz!!!!

Jose Everardo Cristobal
I haven't learnt from this guy before but after watching this video of his victory last year I admire him. Notice the strength he has (about 2:17 of the video) and then compare his size with the rest of the competitors (last bit of the video). He recently won another competition but I couldn't find a video of that one.

Love - Dutch style

I heard this song ages ago, when I lived in The Damn. Little did I know that I would actually grow to like it. It is very, very, very Dutch.

De Poema's - Zij maakt het verschil - She makes the diffence

Ze is geen medicijn tegen het tikken van de klok - She is no medicine against the ticking of the clock
Geen hoop, geen gids - no hope, no guide
Geen haven in de nacht - no haven at night
Geen bron in de woestijn, als je kapot gaat van de dorst - no oasis in the dessert, when you break down of thirst
Niet een glimlach op je aller slechtste grap - no smile to your uttermost bad joke

Ze is geen hit refrein dat van de steigers klinkt - She is no hit chorus, which sounds perfectly assembled
Niet de allerduurste wijn die je zonder kater drinkt - neither the most expensive wine, which you drink without a hangover
Geen bloementuin in bloei - not a blooming flower garden
Niet een uit duizend nachten - not one in thousand nights
Geen uitgestoken hand - not a extended hand
Niet het eind van al mijn wachten - no end to all my waiting

Nee meer nog dan ik eigenlijk toegeven wil, - No, more than I would actually like to admit,
Zij maakt het verschil - She makes the difference

Ze is geen slap excuus voor wat ik graag had willen zijn - She is no weak excuse for what I would like to have become
Geen droom, geen doel - no dream, no purpose
Geen stok om mee te slaan - no stick to hit with
Geen enkele garantie voor een lang gelukkig leven - no single guarantee
Ze is geen antwoord op de vraag van ons bestaan - she is not the answer to the question about our existence

Niet de mooiste symfonie onder de film genaamd wij 2e - not the most beautiful symphony, soundtrack of the movie called "The two of us"
het schone koele bed dat mijn koortsen weg kan nemen - not the clean cool bed that can take away my fevers
niet het ritme van mijn hart, niet het zuiverste geweten - not the rithme of my heart, not the purest conscience
ze kwam neer op het juiste moment - she didn't show up at the right time
en dat kan me ook niet schelen - but I don't care

want meer nog dan ik eigenlijk toegeven wil, - because even more than I would ever admit
Zij maakt het verschil - She makes the difference

tussen alles wat ik had en hoe dat opeens ging leven - between everything I had and how it started to come alive
wat met potlood staat geschetst kan met kleur worden in getekend - what was sketched in pencil, can now be colored in
tussen nooit iets aan de hand en van alles te beleven - between nothing happens and experiencing a blast
tussen nooit en misschien, heel soms - between never and maybe sometimes
En tussen ik en ons and between me and us
zoveel zanger, zoveel woorden en moet allemaal gezegd - so many singers, so many words, and it all must be said
maar wat ze ook probeert geeft me gelijk 1e recht - but whatever she tries, she is right, the first one right
misschien is het wat simpel maar alles wat ik horen wil is - maybe it sounds a bit simple but everything I need to hear is

Zij maakt het verschil - She makes the difference
Zij maakt het verschil - She makes the difference

want ze is geen goed gesprek - because she is no good conversation
waar geen hond op zit te wachten - no dog is waiting for you
geen vlag waar ik onder strijd - no flag to battle for
geen advies bij al mijn klachten - no advice to all my sorrows
niet de allerlaatste uitweg waar wij allang niet meer aan dachten - not the very last exit, which we didn't think before

maar meer nog dan ik eigenlijk toegeven wil, - more than I would really like to admit
Zij maakt het verschil - She makes the difference
Zij maakt het verschil - She makes the difference

Countless moments of joy...

...were provided to me by this website. If you ain't kitsch don't visit it.

Also, I found this lovely pic of Ms Holy Death in this website (check the Pinturas section).

When I saw this book

I couldn't think of anyone who would want it. Really.


We all know who I am talking about he he.

Disney and Dalí present Destino

I apologise for this tilted version, but as it was pointed out in one of the comments, the skew but complete short is better than just extracts. Pirates in the first world are so unskilled -me thinks-. I would have bought the film but they didn't sell it :'(

Another nice thingy from cinema is this collaboration between Mr Hitchcok and Dalí. Enjoy Ingrid Bergman as well.
Dalí also used his talent for more mundane affairs. Check these ads, for example.

Oh so gay!

Modernity gives you a new perspective about old things.

Undoubtedly, this song now sounds sooooo gay.
Maybe it did sound gay before but I just can't remember

And He-Man now looks like a gay fantasy of muscled men in tight tongs.

Update: The difference is that I still like the first one a lot but the second one looks so silly. For that type of cartoon there is nothing like The Thundercats.

Contemporary Adult Commandments: a meme without a heart

I struggled at the beginning but when I was in number five I couldn't stop thinking it is a shame there must be only ten!

Instructions: If you got this meme it means you are a contemporary adult (a thirty-something) or soon you will be one (I am even including 25ish in here!). If this is not the case, it only means the person that passed you the meme can't read, thus you are allowed to skip it.

The general idea is to give out 10 things you *must* do before you become and old bore. Commandments should be based on your *broad* experience of life, that is, a collection of wise-men DOs (but not DONTs!). After you finish the commandments, nominate at least 5 fellows who should share their knowledge of life (ha!).

A kind note for the reader: Please don't be a child and take offense from any of the items. If you do, lock your self in the toilet and scream for a while, nobody wants your shit in the comments.

The 10 Contemporary Adult Commandments

  1. Before you turn 30, thou shouldest have had a pregnancy scare and survive it childless.
  2. Before you turn 30, thou shouldest have holden a McJob and shiver from the memories of it for the rest of your life.
  3. Before you turn 30, thou shouldest have crossed at least one ocean and traveled until you are penniless.
  4. Before you turn 30, thou shouldest have gotten your self wasted/stoned beyond the point of recognition.
  5. Before you turn 30, thou shouldest have slept with a *hot* *hot* *hot* stranger.
  6. Before you turn 30, thou shouldest have gotten yourself into real trouble and out of it, on your own.
  7. Before you turn 30, thou shouldest have doubted about the existence of everything, even God.
  8. Before you turn 30, thou shouldest have made someone suffer and enjoy it.
  9. Before you turn 30, thou shouldest have prolonged your stay outside of the real world as much as possible.
  10. Before you turn 30, thou shouldest have been very afraid of committing yourself to something serious.
And the nominees are *plays drums*:
  • Chango Chilango
  • Lifeless
  • Genma
  • Alice in Wonderblog
  • Imoq
  • Güolken
  • Juan
  • Mike and Mike (the three of them)
  • OmarHG
  • Nodens

Revenge Songs

Revenge Song by Jacob Golden

Helen Helen Troy I drew your picture as a boy
a woman mightier then all
I slipped
and took a nasty fall
into the poisoned
arms of fear
my mama left me with
a broken hearted souvenir
and thats exactly why I’m here…

I took out my revenge
I wrote a postcard
to unite my fractured friends inside the bubble
empty hands a belly full of trouble
baby hold my hand I’m gonna take my shot
I’m gonna sing to save my life
I’m gonna make that girl my wife…

Revenge Song…

Slit your writs listening "I love you" from the same singer. Download it here. Thank you for your participation and have a nice day.

Sometimes, DIY is the best option. Not that I planned it, but it worked wonders anyway.
