Comprometiendo lo Comprometido

Que tanto es tantito.

Mientras algunas puertas se cierran frente a ti, a otros se les abren de par e par. Campanas anuncian su llegada.

Pisos Ajenos

Se pierde...

Muy probablemente, lo que no se usa se pierde frente a nuestros ojos,
se pasea delante, burlón, mostrando -lo que pudo ser, que no será jamás-.

Me baño en alcohol, cuando me baño,
cuando no, solo descanso...
No se por qué, o para qué?.

Es tiempo ya,
Es ahora (preferentemente),
O nunca.

Dice aquel.

I was thinking the other day...
About me, mostly...
Life always revolves around me.


This Is What Got Me Where I Am Now

Career Opportunities

So it is still Friday, my last Friday posting…

Thanks to Rob and Gordon for the invitation!!!

I was 20 years old when I had my first 9 to 5 job, and I promised to my self I wouldn’t try it again. The process of getting a job is just as bad as the actual working experience.

I was fresh out of high school, I had all this plans and working to get some money seemed like the short way to accomplish what I wanted. I was told wouldn’t get no first month pay since I’d be learning how everything worked but was promised to be paid after that since I would then be experienced. After the first week I started producing money for that company, finishing up jobs on my own, and I wasn’t getting any money on my pocket. So by the time my second working month was about to finish with no pay and no signs of it, I went to the owner and told him I wasn’t going to work there anymore. The guy didn’t ask why, I don’t even think he said anything.

Everything is so "Immediate & Remote"

Immediate & Remote

This should be a long post…

Being unemployed gives you the chance of having all the time in the World to do whatever you want or to do nothing at all, it’s like most of the things in life, up to you choosing what you want to do. A long long time ago my mom gave me a camera for me to use in school (I’m a drop out, but did go to school). The camera was a Yashica FX-3 Super2000, unlike the acoustic guitar she also gave me I did not brake the camera in rage slamming it on the wall, I took care of it pretty good for almost ten years, until it got stolen along with all my stuff and a truck in the Mexico/US border back 2007.

Then I did what I do "Any Given Sunday"

ANY GIVEN SUNDAY

I have to say that my biggest and only talent has always been the ability for relating to very talented people, other than that… Some of those acquaintances have turned into friendship and some have not.

Some of which did turn into friendship are MARTI and ROXI, they both happened to have a show last year at the GALERIA José María Velasco.

The Gallery is placed in TEPITO a very old, rough and popular neighborhood, located right next to Mexico City’s downtown.

It was a sunny Sunday afternoon that had it all.

Starting with: great works from this two guys (drawings, paintings and sculptures), free drinks, a lot of beer (not for free), tons of familiar and unfamiliar faces, and ended with some of the assistants being robbed at gunpoint by some of the local thugs, who came riding scooters for an easy get away thru those narrow and crowded streets.

So now I reblog

A couple of months ago I was writing words on paper, I was putting my thouoghts on paper then typing them on the computer.
That was a few months ago...
I did some posts for the Zineswap BLOG, this was the first post.

ANHN

The two months I spent away from here it was a common thing to be asked about the current situation in Mexico, whether it was safe to visit or not, which places I’d say would be best to avoid. My answer was always the same, Mexico in general is a safe place to be, and worth to be experienced.

Mexico City for example is definitively not safe as for you to walk around with your DSLR camera hanging from your neck, or just sitting on a bench with your laptop computer; there are certain areas where you can do that, but it is not the majority of the city. Wherever you chose to go in Mexico you would be missing the bigger picture by hanging out in just one area, it is always fun to walk around and explore.

Part time unemployed

When you have no choice you adapt to whatever comes your way...
So, once you get over denial and all the other emotions that revolve around inmersing your self into something you did not want. You will probably realize how easy it is to do such thing.
When you choose to do certain things you had never pictured yourself in, just to achieve something (the so called "means to an end") you realize how frightening it is the simplicity of certain tasks, and how easy it is to get stuck in it. How easy it is to find your self turning into a stapler, sharpener, highlighter, pen or pencil, your head turning into a computer monitor.
Your life is goes by in automatic.
Your life is an endless routine.
Your life is empty.

But don't worry you still got your retirement!!!

When I was a Full Time Unemployed... o lo que es lo mismo... The All Night, Drug Prowling Wolf.

I few months ago, I went out for a walk on a frosty morning, I looking for the Hammersmith Palais, a ballroom that was once inspiration for The Clash to write: (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais.
Needless to say it is one of my favorite songs, by one of my favorite bands.

Smooth As Fuck

Woke up with a migraine, I had my stomach empty and still swallowed two advils.
Put some coffee on the stove and went to the bedroom to shave and get dressed.
I realized it was really late and forgot to drink my coffee, i think I need a new route to go to work I realized this route is getting me bored, while riding on Eje 3 and turning onto Canal del Norte I realized.
A guy driving a white Nissan got mad and was trying to cut me off all the way from the start of Reforma to Metro Hidalgo. Motherfucker is driving a car and gets mad at someone riding a bike...
By the way i still beat him!!!


The rest of my working day was average, and by average I mean...
Well you should know what i mean!!!

Tomorrow I should bake some more.

In the mean time i will go finish my drink and get ready for tomorrow's Monday.

TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT!!!

Toma Chango Tu Banana!!!

Same Shit Different MONDAY

Morning ride on the bike was fine. No rain, so drivers weren't that stupid behind the wheel.
Arrived soaked on my sweat as usual, and rushed to change clothes in the bathroom.
It was a long day with a lot of questions.

Mistakes made while doing simple tasks can make you feel really stupid!!!
I don't want to get used to the felling.

Ate my sandwich and the avocado was good, bread is still fluffy and tastes great.

Rode the bike back home got yelled at while crossing at La Glorieta Del Caballito...
"Luego porque los atropellan".

I found my balance on the bike just fine

Look mom no hands on the handle bar!!!

Day Sixteen

Woke up at Six Thirty
Shaved
Got dressed
Had some coffe
Rode my bike to work
Bumped into a lady on my wat to work
Arrived at Seven Fifty Five to work
Got yelled at
Got desperate
There was nothing I could do

Twelve Forty and I left
Rode the bike back home

While I was riding my bike on my way to work and on the way back from work I wasn't that miserable.

Sin Futuro?

Feels way different when on the other side of the counter...
Thinking about renaming my blog (probably won't).

Things change right in front and you hardly notice.

People feels happy about you when you are miserable, people thinks you have to do things different when you happy.
Established roles are catching up with me.
It's hard when you over 30, and suddenly you put your self in a position you have never been before.

Time will tell. Until then...

Every day is Monday.

If I were depressed...

I would wake up early in the morning. Walk up to the kitchen, take out some flour, chocolate drops, butter, water and sugar. Mix it all together, and then I would bake it for 35 minutes in the oven. Take them out and let them cool down for a little over than an hour. the I would eat them all thru the day, while i sit in front of the computer doing nothing else but reading comments and posting my own onto my preferred social network.

Now that would be fun!!!

2 Months In 7 Minutes and 18 Seconds.

I spent long hours listening to music not to hear my self thinking and plotting against me. Certain times when the ipod batterie was gone, I couldn't help but pay attention to my ideas. I had to act like everything seemed interesting to avoid confrontation.
A playlist was put together, which was built out of suggestions and some of my own choices.
I remember a night in Rome, the roughest weekend i had thru the trip. Listening to The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, the song was: "Adult Friction", it brought me back from the darkness.
Overall I listened a lot to: Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Vic Ruggiero (no specific order).

Algo con lo que tengo algo de experiencia es sobre poner dinero en algo en lo que crees, cualquiera que sea el proyecto. Despues de arriesgaarlo todo viene la incertidumbre y la esperanza de que haya gente pueda entender el producto final y que le pueda gustar al menos la mitad de lo que a ti te gusta.
Un amigo se acaba de embarcar en una empresa del tipo arriba descrito, junto con otros de sus amigos recientemente abrieron una tienda.

A good habit i picked up far far away from here...

Lo que va de este año se me ha ido como agua entre las manos...
Hacia mucho tiempo que no me sentía con suerte o simplemente no encontraba una razón para tener suerte.
Luego entonces este año ha transcurrido rápido y he tenido suerte.

March 27/2011

I am walking on a parallel life, the one that could have been and is not. This places I have been the scenarios i have seen. Even tough I am here you can't really see me, i'm some kind of reflection like the one on the mirror or the puddle on the sidewalk because of the morning rain.
Then again i am walking this road "What could have been, but is not"
It's weird feeling comfortable in a place but at the same time having this urge to leave. I pretty much feel like saying goodbye to the city.
Hope this time I find what i'm looking for.
I feel so unsatisfied, life is sometimes really exhausting in a funny way: just enough to get you down but not enough to keep you from going.
I know what I'm not, what I don't have. I should get something out of this trip.
And it all should end where it started...
Living a life that doesn't feel like it's yours, and if it is. It certainly never works because we are wishing we were somewhere else, wishing we had something else, wishing we was someone else.

By the way this coffee thing,
in the morning
in the afternoon
and at night
is growing up on me.

March 19, 2011.

It's a chilli afternoon and I still got another half an hour to wait before I get on the bus to Barcelona. My plan was to get there in the afternoon, if I'm lucky I should get there before midnight.
See what happens next.
I am cold and a little hungry but I'm thinking of sleeping as soon as I get on the bus, that should make me forget.

ESTO(es-el)COLMO

-"The first time I ever saw you"
  Johnny Cash

It's 6:53am and the road is covered with ice, snow on the sides...

Couldn't make the Olympus work.


That's what happened after my first morning far from home(again). We went to sleep around one in the morning, after catching up with our friends an realizing how different their lifes are, different in a way that would have never occurred to me; All these while drinking coffe and eating home made bread with some butter and cheese.
I was awake since four and was just moving face up face down again and again, until I decided to just get up and go look thru the window. Outside the roofs of the houses were still covered with snow, then I tought of listening to music an I played some Johnny Cash on the iPod, "The first time I ever saw you" was the first song. While looking at Maria I felt lucky.
Then I thought of taking a picture but couldn't make the Olympus work.

TRATAR Y FALLAR



Cual es la forma mas basica de aprendizaje?

Cuando niños comenzábamos a imitar las cosas que veiamos de la gente a nuestro alrededor, los manerismos, las palabras, la forma de hablar, de caminar.
