APPLE OLD ADVERTS (FEED ME WITH TV COMMERCIALS VOL. XV / Once you go Mac you never go back)
I come with this Apple old adverts to go back to nineties on the week that Apple released iPhone 6, (iPhone that SteveJobs "invented" watching V The Visitors as we could read previously here) the mini-iPad-mini: iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch (don't worry I'm not gonna make any review or comment about them, it's only been two days after the Apple Event in Cupertino that we could follow through Live Streaming, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and many others... and I'm already sick of reading about this topic, another awesomely tremendous marketing movement? Time will proof but no doubt that changes are here: the Apple CEO that I don't wanna learn his name wears Nike Roshe's instead of the checkered Steve Job'sNew Balance 991 or 992 and that is such a fact) in addition the legendary iPod was deceased, wich I have to confess never bought one but found even three of them that I enjoyed so much, thanks to the owners who purchase them, wherever they are!
We can say a song could save your life? I don´t believe in coincidences and this last week was plenty of them. Never happened to you to listen to a song watch some stuff, smelll some scent that takes you to the right state of mind/mood without looking for it, without playing it, without knowing but in some kind of weird way expected..? My beloved Red Hot Chili Peppers could not be such a revelation but was a "click" on the switch that I will remember for life. "I've heard a little girl and what she said was something beautiful: To give, your love no matter what, yeah what she said..." signals? The Truth Is Out There! Always Enjoy! Sorry, thanks & Goodbye! Hope to see ya soon!
LYRICAHOLIC VOL. XXXVI / Radical Face - Welcome Home, Son
I post this song here because of insistence, It's been playing along all this past few days and because it reminds me one of my happiest late days surfing some pretty waves and because today, despite of all, was a good day!! Lots of love and... Always Enjoy!!
It was a teenage wedding and... hahha. No, I'm not talking about Chuck Berry's song that Pulp Fiction's Twist Contest scene at Jack Rabbit Slim made famous forever, I'm talking about my experience in life and what I can extract from my last two weeks living it. Is funny how something that seems so important you can't live with becomes so unnecesary when you watch it from another prespective. I learnt this when I was in the University, studying Physics, I realised that every thing or situation in this life depends so much to the point of view of the observer when you try to analyze it. So I´m on it, situating myself at that perfect coordenates now. I started this web for the same reason I'm gonna keep doing it now. It helps me to get to know myself better and takes me to a perfect state of clarity for my mind to write even when is nothing personal. So if you wanna read just feel yourself welcome! Enjoy!!
It was a teenage wedding and... hahha. No, no estoy hablando de la canción de Chuck Berry que la mítica escena de Pulp Fiction del concurso de Twist del Jack Rabbit Slim hizo famosa para siempre. Hablo de mi escasa experiencia en la vida y de lo que puedo extraer de las dos últimas semanas que llevo viviéndola. Es gracioso ver cómo algo que podría parecer más necesario que el propio aire que respiras puede convertirse en algo incluso molesto cuando lo ves desde otra perspectiva. Siempre me he quedado con esta máxima que aprendí cuando estudié Física en la uni: todo en este mundo depende del punto de vista del observador nada puede determinarse de manera exacta sino que dependerá siempre de las coordenadas de quien lo observa, así que es un buen consejo situarse en unas coordenadas que permitan observar precisamente la parte del cálculo que queremos realizar, de cualquier otro modo los resultados obtenidos serán erróneos. Y precisamente en eso estoy ahora mismo, en situarme en dichas coordenadas. Comencé esta web por el mismo motivo que voy a continuarla ahora, escribir me ayuda a conocerme mejor a mi mismo y me traslada al estado mental perfecto para emprender cosas nuevas incluso cuando lo que publico no es nada personal. Así que si quieres leer, eres más que bienvenido! Enjoy!!

NASTY MONDAYS 9 YEARS VIDEO by Blackmedia (BLACK & RAD)
Nine years, it's easy to say, the "happening" of monday nights in Barcelona, the Apolo crowded is now a habit in this town but still atonishing the ones who first visit it. Is seems like yesterday for me when Sören told me to manage their MySpace, the party was going on at Fellini then and just about to get moved definetly to Apolo and of couse I said I would love to! Something that was so easy and simple as upload some pics monthly and update schedule started growing and growing until it became a huge platform as it is nowadays. During all this years there's been time for everything, unforgettable moments, people from every country in the world, places, trips and the best moments to remember of a history that is still being written every monday in Barcelona and everywhere Max & Sören get to visit and tranform into a total debauch. I feel so lucky of being a part of this all-ambits movement that's taking place in our city and which already started the countdown to its decade!! Long life to Nasty Mondays & Rock 'n' Roll!!
Three years ago I wrote this post on the same exact date as today. Today I write again adding some more information about Kurt Cobain's death scene photos released by the Seattle Police with the suicide note, some pics featuring sdetails of his arms and legs laid on the ground and a foot wearing a Converse One Star! And also about the new documentary Brett Morgen is directing and that that's gonna be released soon this year. Enjoy!
One of these bands that I started hating and then loving like many things you love most in this life. In the beggining I didn't like Ville Valo and friends so much but when I discovered CKY I started loving them. But that's another story... One of my favorite tracks of the second and in my opinion best album Razorblade Romance, I'm waiting for you call and I'm ready to take your sweet 666 in my heart... Enjoy!!
LYRICAHOLIC VOL. XXXII / THE STROKES. I'll Try Anything Once - You Only Live Once
There are some bands that I surprise myself when I fins that I've never posted about them on this "Lyricaholic" and one of them is The Strokes. So let's get to it, one of my favorite lyrics fromt his band is this previous version of the hit "You Only Live Once" that was originally entitled "I'll Try Anything Once" where Julian sings a different lyrics, more quietly and in my opinion excellent. The final result we all know and there can be appreciated a hand of marketing to get the tune more catchy and even the title. By the way in this original theme was included as one of the B-sides on the "Heart in a Cage" single. It features only Nick Valensi playing keyboard while Julian Casablancas sings the lyrics softly, which are quite different from the album version of the song. I feel quite identified with this lyrics he sings so hope you... Enjoy!! By the way the final song's videoclip is just poetry, one of my favorites ever.
Hay grupos que a veces me sorprendo a mi mismo de que todavía no hayan salido en este "Lyricaholic" uno de elllos es The Strokes. Pues vamos a ello, una de mis letras favoritas es esta versión demo del famoso single "You Only Live Once" que se titulaba en origen "I'll Try Anything Once" en la que Julian canta una letra diferente, mucho más tranquila y para mi gusto magistral. El resultado final fue el hit que todos conocemos en el que se nota a una mano de marketing para hacerlo más pegadizo y comercial (hasta el título). En cambio en la interpretación original que vio la luz como "Cara B" del Single "Heart In A Cage" Julian canta en un tono muy tranquilo mientras Nick Valensi toca el piano. Una maravilla hecha melodía y una letra con la que me siento muy identificado. A pesar de ello el tema final viene acompañado de uno de mis videocilps favoritos en el que el agua negra va llenando una habitación en la que están los Strokes vestidos de blanco impoluto... Enjoy!
