|No estoy muy segura cuántos años pasaron antes que pude encontrar este libro en español y leerlo. El libro, seguramente tan bueno que la película, me tomaron en seguida y se me llevaron a un lugar donde la cocina es profunda y perpetua como solo puede ser el amor. Y vise versa.|
The trouble with crying while chopping onions isn't the crying. It's that sometimes you can't stop.

Los que entraron en la lista son:
Te doy mis ojos

Ukraine / Russia (2002); Directed by Kira Muratova
I bet you haven't watched many Ukrainian movies. This one will be a real challenge for your patience and perceptions. 120 minutes in black and white, soft domestic scandals, hectic and Orthodox wedding ceremony, rich nouveau people searching the romance in the lost province, ordinary people searching their way to the so called civilization.
Okay, this statement is strained, but the mountain is still beautiful.
The pictures were taken by Mono on his trip to the Balkans.
This May the 2005 best photographs are displayed in the city where I live and I’m thinking that maybe you’ll enjoy them as well.
Every picture has a story. In 2005 World Press Photo celebrates its 50th anniversary. Visit World Press Photo website to see the best of the year.
|World Press Photo of the Year||Woman mourns relative killed in tsunami, Cuddalore, India, Tamil Nadu, 28 December. On December 26 a massive earthquake off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia, triggered a series of deadly waves that traveled around the Indian Ocean, wreaking havoc in nine Asian countries, and causing fatalities as far away as Somalia and Tanzania. The quake was so strong that it altered the tilt of the planet by 2,5 centimeters.|
These days I'm freakishly busy and the story of the dying bird came to my mind. It is an old story. In case you haven't heard of it, here it is:
El cuento para el pájaro que murio de frío
Había un pajarito que murio de frío y cayo en el camino.
Pasó por allí una vaca fea y le cagó. Por el calor de de la caca el pajarito revivó y empezó a chillar que está vivo. Le oyo un gato y le sacó de las cacas. Y le comió.
Lo importante en esa historia es que no cada uno que te caga te hace lo malo.
También que no cada uno que te saca de las cacas te hace lo bueno.
Y había algo más como moraleja: cuando estas en cacas hasta la cabeza, no chilla mucho.
|Have a look at the future. In case you have wondered how you’re going to look like in 10, 20 or 40 years, here is the answer to all your doubts. |
The old ages though never beautiful, are curious, charming and smart.
See yourself after 40 years. If only life was as predictable.
The second movie from this weekend is Georgi i peperudite / Georgi and the Butterflies directed by Andrey Paounov.
The movie won many prizes among which Silver Wolf at IDFA.
View Georgi and the Butterflies official website and check the trailer (~9Mb).
The weekend was dedicated to her majesty The Cinema and two Bulgarian Movies.
The movie tells the story of an orphan twenty-something girl who is illustrator. In one day she loses her job, her boyfriend and the doctors tell her that her grandfather, her only relative, will die quite soon. It seems that things could not be worse but she finds out that every end is a new beginning.
I would put a link, but the movie has no website.
|If you happen to be around, you can give me a sign because I do.|
This May season will be official opened for me this Friday with a party where I'll explode listening to Layo & Bushwacka live.
Then next Wednesday (May 11th) Zuco 103 are coming around and it would be quite a pity if you miss them.
Tomorrow is the last day of my diet. Definitely it is much better than saying the last day of my life.
Have you ever tried to live a week or so eating cabbage soup, lettuce, carrots and tomatoes? Actually it is nice. I like vegetable and the only pain was to skip the dairy products from my menu. And the sweets. And the alcohol.
The problem with the diets is that they ruin your social life. People meet, booze, laugh and eat all these calories. You just laugh and take mineral water. Funny, huh?
I believe the nice thing will start after the 7-day pain, when people around start telling me "Oh, you look so fit". 6 kilos for 7 days is almost perfect, indeed.
