]Bright Eyes[

So, this will be my first CD of 2K5. That is, if I can found it here.

Wating for two blue pills to work against this damn cold... What an ugly day indeed, three times I was about to cry. Two of them actually a tear come out. But I managed.

Day started reading El hombre mediocre, by Jose Ingenieros, followed by work and more work... Took a couple of minutes to go out for fresh air, to breathe, and found myself walking between melancholy walls and buildings.

At the left, passing by, was an old men, holding a bunch of balloons on his hand, and all I could think was my pockets, where I had all my dishope, and wished I could let it fly away like a balloon to the sky.

I briefly smiled, lowered my head, kicked a stone, and kept walking. With my hands in my pockets.

Didn`t work. It was still there.

+Orden del día+

"Mantener el alma en estado de marcha,
mantener el contingente a distancia,
mantener el alma por sobre la refriega,
mantener a Dios como una idea cualquiera,
un apoyo, una eventualidad,
una comarca salvaje del universo político,
mantener las promesas de la infancia,
mantener a raya la adversidad,
no dar cuartel al adversario,
mantener la palabra abierta,
hacer pagar caro a sus debilidades,
no dejarse arrastrar por la corriente,
mantener su rango en el rango de aquellos
que están decididos a mantener al hombre
en posición estimable,
no dejarse seducir por lo fácil
bajo el pretexto de que los peores
se elevan cómodamente al más alto nivel mientras
los mejores difícilmente mantienen el camino,
ser digno del privilegio de ser
bajo la forma más lograda: el hombre.
O mejor aún, la mujer."

No, no soy feminista. Se puede ser humanista y sociópata al mismo tiempo????

By Jean Pierre Rosnay, btw.

Bitter Silence

And the little spider in the upper corner of the living room must think I am nuts, I must be, because spiders don`t think, and intelligent humans would never even use one second of their time to think about it... Poor little spider, I have no heart to kill her. I`ll adopt her as my pet. At least no one will stole her...

What the hell, try it, it is a good sarchastic feeling.. Honey, I am home.

Then, absolute silence, you make a cup of tea and open a book. That is the only conversation you`ll get. Oh well, at least one can pick an interesting one.

What are you laughing at?

+Animation @ Oscars+

On short films, althought the most likely to win in my opinion is Ryan, it looks like Birthday Boy could have a chance this year at the Oscars.

I found a little preview of this short animated film, made by an australian student, here.

Ryan seems quite interesting, though...

Other nominees are Gopher broke, Guard dog and Lorenzo.

The long ones are the horribles "A sharks tale" and "Shrek 2" , so I predict the winner will be "The incredibles" (uh, I found this one a little amusing, at least Edna made me laugh. Some cinism is always welcome. Okay Okay I love Pixar).

Una mariposa cruza el cielo nocturno. Las señales luminosas la ciegan. Titubea. Continúa su vuelo. Se acerca a un farol. Mira el río de luz que dejan los faros de los autos, que pasan, como un bolido, indiferentes, sin cesar. Apura el vuelo. Contempla la luna.

Vuela con una herida que no cicatriza, y la luna, la maldita luna, lo sabe.

Un ensayo de ternura, su sonrisa. Inventada y fugaz.

Volar sin fuerzas. A donde? Volar sin rumbo. Sin dirección. Volar con alas rotas. Volar porque el suelo es demasiado peligroso. Cerrar los ojos. Desear caer. Volar. Volar. Volar. Sin rumbo fijo. Volar.

El horizonte, un espejo.

Atrapada, volar.

Piece of crap.

+Vodka nights+

"When you stare into an abyss for a long time, the abyss also stares into you"


The best thing of going to a gay club is to see the horrified face of your brother seated in a corner.

The second best thing is to have a weitress filling your glass with vodka before you finish it.

The third best thing is the moment when the lights and the energy of the music blend into you, and you just stop thinking and start having fun.

Thanks, DJ, for Satisfaction.

The Corpse Bride

The trailer for Tim Burton`s "The Corpse Bride" is here.

Weather Report

It rained yesterday on Titan. It could rain again tomorrow. But instead of water, it rained liquid methane.

Rain has been a theme today. It woke me up this morning. It stopped outside, but continued inside.

Flood alert.

Day Off

"I've got wind, can you give me something for it?"
"A kite."


So, a while a go, a friend told me about Interpol, and I didnt pay too much attention. Later I DL the album. And now I am loving it. Just saw this video of Evil.

Not that great, though, but Charlie White puppet art is there.

Escape from the Universe

"No fire, no heroism, no intensity of thought or feeling, can preserve a life beyond the grave… all the labours of the ages, all the devotion, all the inspiration, all the noonday brightness of human genius, are destined to extinction in the vast death of the solar system; and the whole temple of man's achievement must inevitably be buried beneath the debris of a universe in ruins."

@Bertrand Rusell

From "Escape from the Universe" at Prospect Magazine. Great article.

Otra solitaria noche de insomnio. Getting used to it. Sometimes even loving it.

Do you want to live forever?

A little TR and Nature fun...


Time for the next one...

Bon Jour

A poem woke me up this morning. Y toda la mañana he estado como atravesada como por un cuchillo de sol. (And I have been all the morning like stabbed by a knife made of sun...)

I mean... Dissection =)

Free Culture

The transcript of Free Culture: Lawrence Lessing Keynote on OSCON 2002.

Still fresh as hell, and well worth the reading.

Oh, forgot to provide the link to sexy Billy. Hahaha.

Ingmar Bergman

Ayer fui bautizada con mi primer película de este director de cine escandinavo.

Sorprendente. La película que vi fue hecha en 1973 y juro que no parpadeé ni una sola vez.

Eso no es todo, me provocó una singular respuesta emocional.

Lástima que sólo tengo acceso a una más, y se acabó... Ay, Hermosillo...


Oh dear...

Go Huygens!

Joined at the hip for the last seven years, Cassini and Huygens finally separated Dec. 24 PST after a 3.5 billion kilometer journey through our solar system.

While the Cassini spacecraft continues its four-year tour of the Saturnian system, the Huygens probe will plunge into Titan and its mysterious atmosphere on Jan. 14, 2005.

Titan awaits...

/*Caffeine addict

Well I can´t help it. I´m also candy addict I guess.

Now, this is the iPod I was waiting for. I´ll buy one of this babies as soon as they hit the mexican market.

Unlimited amounts of cofee, trying to explain the next gen of BitTorrrent & Squarepusher´s Steinbolt in the background...

Whoa, I am sort of happy.

That´s weird!

(A)bort, (R)etry, (F)ail? R
(A)bort, (R)etry, (F)ail? F
Relationship failed.

10. Now that Half Life 2 is out, I need to refocus my priorities.

9. You have been unsubscribed from my dating list. Please click this link to confirm.

8. I need a lover who understands that 20 hours a day on the Internet is normal.

7. I don't think we should date any more, but we can still be on each other's buddy lists.

6. I'd like a true beauty so I don't have to spend so much time photoshopping your ugly face out of our photos.

5. It's like in X-Men number 135, where Cyclops and Jean Grey (as The Phoenix)...

4. Let's face it. You love Intel, and I'm an AMD man. It's not going to work out.

3. What do you mean your EULA says that once I've removed the shrink wrap I can't return it?

2. After you e-mailed me your full-body shot, I realized I was looking
for someone more feminine.

1. So long and thanks for all the fish.

@It is not that I am cold hearted, it is just that I wish I were. At least a little. Oh, forget it. All right... Newsgator... Newsgator... Concentration... Oh, this is a great pharagraph from the book "El libro de un hombre solo", written by Gao Xingjian:

"Los recuerdos, enterrados por el tiempo en su memoria, emergían poco a poco cuando evocaba un fragmento, como una red cuando sale del agua -basta con tirar de un pedazo para que le siga el resto-, y se extiende hacia el infinito, con las mallas enlazadas, a veces tan invisibles como desaparecidas. Algunos momentos y hechos de distintas épocas resurgieron al mismo tiempo, y era imposible saber por dónde cogerlos, imposible encontrar el hilo conductor para hacerlos remontar a la superficie y clasificarlos; además, era imposible esclarecerlos. La vida humana es una red que querrías deshacer, nudo tras nudo, pero al final sólo consigues una madeja de hilos enredados. Y eres incapaz de desenredar esas cuentas caóticas que la vida representa".

I predict I will be done with this book really quickly :*)

Ok. Newsgator. Concentration. Off.

*MacWorld. Ready? Go!

As a Mac user wanna be (translation: sick cult member), I look forward to anything and everything that is introduced this week.

La tregua

Es evidente que Dios me concedió un destino obscuro.

Ni siquiera cruel. Simplemente obscuro.

Es evidente que me concedió una tregua.

Al principio, me resistí a creer que eso pudiera ser la felicidad.

Me resistí con todas mis fuerzas.

Despues me di por vencido y lo creí.

Pero no era la felicidad, era sólo una tregua.

Ahora estoy otra vez metido en mi destino.

Y es más obscuro que antes, mucho más.

Crappy Craaaap...

Well one can finally see Mr. Gates "highlights" at CES 2K5 here.

+Live Right Now+

Between going and staying the day wavers,
in love with its own transparency.
The circular afternoon is now a bay
where the world in stillness rocks.

All is visible and all elusive,
all is near and can't be touched.

Paper, book, pencil, glass,
rest in the shade of their names.

Time throbbing in my temples repeats
the same unchanging syllable of blood.

The light turns the indifferent wall
into a ghostly theater of reflections.

I find myself in the middle of an eye,
watching myself in its blank stare.

The moment scatters. Motionless,
I stay and go: I am a pause.

So, Bill Gates Media Center PCs presentation at CES *crashed*.

Ah, Murphy! It is not the first time, as you can see here.

I´ll go against the flow, and I´ll be happy.

+Ad sense+

This is an interesting concept of an ad. I hate ads but I have to admit it looks quite cool. (Click on the upper right corner, on the green little face)

Oh well, new for me at least.

Working on an article about this software. Here is a gallery of works done on it. It is amazing...

Plus, one of my favorite draws is made on it. ;*)

¿What do you believe is true even though you cannot prove it? The 2005 Edge Annual Question is up. Interesting readings. Well, some of them at least.

This is the week of CES 2005 and Macworld Conference & Expo SF. Well this last one starts on Jan 10 but I am excited already.

"Reality is not always probable, or likely."

[Warning. Emotional stuff.] {I have to cry by night to be able to live by day. I guess I need the tears out just as much a vampire would need the blood to survive. Actually, tears are only my soul bleeding, leaving a trace on the maze I am in. Life burns today. }

Caída libre

Pensar que lo que queda es caminar con un puñal clavado en el corazón. Sentir cómo se desangra. Pobre corazón roto, triste. Pobre lágrima furtiva, inútil.

Queda caer. Saltar. Al vacío.

Queda volverse loco de desesperación.

Queda llorar.

Queda morderse los labios.

Queda matar esperanzas.

Queda cavar tumbas.

Queda perderse.

Queda morirse de amor.
