La Feria de Abril

Como cada primavera, Andalucía nos muestra todo su esplendor: llega la Feria a la capital hispalense.

La primera noche de Feria se celebra en Sevilla el tradicional ‘pescaíto’ y el ‘alumbrao’. Con el encendido de la portada de entrada al recinto ferial, que cada año conmemora algún monumento de capital andaluza, da comienzo este alegre y colorido festejo.

Desde sus orígenes, que se remontan a 1848, la Feria ha pasado por varios recintos, celebrándose ahora en el Barrio de Los Remedios. El recinto donde se alojan más de mil casetas se denomina el Real de la Feria. La famosa Calle del Infierno alberga más de 400 Actividades Feriales.

La Feria se vive de día al ritmo de trote de caballos y el sabor de las tapas, y durante la noche, al compás del ritmo flamenco, las sevillanas y las copas, especialmente manzanilla y rebujito, que son bebidas típicas de esta celebración.

Con más de 200.000 bombillas alumbrando los peculiares farolillos del Real, La Feria de Abril es la fiesta andaluza por excelencia.

Tripwolf te dedica este vídeo para disfrutar de un momento musical inigualable: músicos repartidos por todo el mundo cantando al ritmo de la misma melodía sin conocerse.
Comienza así:  “Esta canción dice: no importa quién seas, no importa adónde vayas en tu vida, an algún momento necesitarás a alguien… que esté a tu lado”

El clip es un fragmento extraído del documental “Playing for Change’

¡Que lo disfrutes!


Killing can be… fun!

Honestly hilarious, if talking about little fluffy rabbits killing themselves using the most creative methods you can imagine. You should take a look at these drawings just for fun (but, please DO NOT try this at home) 😛

…just wondering… is killing “trendy”? Are somehow killers considered “popular”? From Charles Manson or Jack the Ripper to Hannibal Lecter or Dexter, serial killers seem to have as many fans as detractors: F***ing scary!!!


Increíble pero cierto, doy fe de que queda público que aún desconoce el susodicho término, así que, vivamos un momento didáctico sobre esta especie: los Pagafantas.
¡Ay de tí si te has sentido identificado con el pagafantismo! Te animo a ver si algún post anterior te inspira un poquito… ya me contarás 😉

Geek pick

…which one do you go for? 😉


makes the people come together … yeah!

Amazing how such different people from here and there enjoy singing and dancing the same great songs: Linkin Park, Korn, Radiohead, Dengue Fever, Sinatra, Bob Marley, David Ghetta or Prodigy… Let the beat go on!

As we live our lives, we build up personal Sountracks. Sometimes they taste like blues, some other times our notes turn deep black or become sweet blinding pink.

There are times when you inner songs sound peacefully just for yourself, move your heart from your inside, move your feet, make you dream… Although, in most cases, the best moment is when we share our Soundracks with friends, lovers, or just stangers who become magically close when humming, moving, jumping at once. Feel the rhythm. Dance.

I love my Soundtrack. Right now an acoustic guitar inspires my words and makes me travel the world and the seven seas… as everybody… looking for something!


Last week has been one of the most tumultuous chapters in financial history. Black Monday. News about Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers bankruptcy filled up all kinds of Media. US capitalist system allowed the collapse/sale of these two free-

standing investment banks. If you’re not strong enough to stay in business, you shouldn’t be in business. Nevertheless, the government decided not to afford AIG’s fail, and carried out the strongest intervention in the economy since the Great Depression. Wall Street faces a crisis unseen for decades. Black September.

Yet, all these financial moves have been somehow predictable, and not as shocking as the phenomenon that has really caught my attention during the week: SEX as a best seller.

I have just come across this book that is setting up new trends among -basically- Spanish speaking male population: Sex Code, by Mario Luna. Supposedly, it turns men into experts at seducing women just by following the author’s Method. 700 pages containing all kinds of infallible recipes to become a pick-up artist. WOW.

Temporarily out of stock in Amazon. Sold out in El Corte Inglés. Just a few copies left in main bookstores’ shelves. Lectures, courses and seminars are being given in major cities for the public willing to pay 150€ (starting price) for a master class on the art of seduction. Good luck, guys!

Being hilarious for some readers, ridiculous for others, a holy bible, just crap or a great manual on self-confidence, the truth is that this book, a re-make of Neil Strauss Methodology, is becoming a BIG hit in the market. Ladies beware! ;-P
