Moving

This blog is moved to Wordpress. That's a thing that I wanted to do, and one year ago I was working on it, however some issues made me to postpone it. Now, it's done.

The new blog is here:



I've tried to hold a similar environment, although there are changes, of course. The graphic part is simpler, that can be noticed at the first glance. Anyway, the matters usually discussed in this blog don't need much graphic display. Now the page size and so the website speed should improve, I hope.

Surely there will be some issues in old posts, as broken links. The import was done with a tool that Wordpress and Blogger provide, but with some fails. Although I reviewed the page later, there are 160 posts, too many for an exhaustive review.

That's all here, folks.

Better than you since 1776

That is what Barack Obama and some people (not many, I hope) in United States of America have decided to believe and claim continously, since the 1830s. They name it as American Exceptionalism (when they say American, they mean U.S.A. citizens, excluding citizens of the other American countries). Others name it as Arrogance.

arrogant Obama

Barack told it last time (at least for now when I write this) one month ago, on 28 May, in a speech to his armed forces before to send them around the world to kill unexceptional people here and there:
"I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being... "

And he added that all the countries in the world, with the exception of U.S.A., are dispensable:
"The United States is the one indispensable nation. That has been true for the century passed, and will likely be true for the century to come."

It would be offensive if it weren't so laughable.

Two human beings and three cops

This pic has been the winner in a social photography contest, organised by Generación Human@. Its title is "Abrazo tras el desahucio" (Hug after eviction), made by Germán Caballero, and it can be read a long post about it in his blog: retales fotográficos

Some people are playing football, I think

Yes, it seems that some days ago started a football championship, the FIFA World Cup. The Greatest Show on Earth, as it has been named.

Good patriots all around the world (except planet USA) are these days in front of their TVs, with flags painted on their faces, shouting like possessed sheep, insulting to images in the screen, and weeping if the team with the name of their country loses.That is the expected behaviour of good citizens during these days, and that is what you should be doing now if you aren't a radical.

Culture is not your friend

Thanks to +Winston Smith, because I found this video in a post he published here: Cultureleaks . It's a good message, not long, just 2,09, and it's worth it. Check how what Terence McKenna (1946-2000) tells in this video is moulding our lifes.

"We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world."

GoodFellas

The title of this post is in homage to the Martin Scorsese's film with the same title. Mr. Scorsese is one of the best directors doing gangsters films, and some of them are between my favorites.

King Juan Carlos and friends, in a hunt

But now this post changes the subject. The photo above shows the ex-King of Spain, Juan Carlos Borbon, in a hunt with three good friends, a few years ago. Half the men in this pic have been sentenced later to prison due diverse crimes; the other half, not yet.
