See, it's not like I disappeared, it's just that I stopped posting... And it's not like I have nothing to say, dear God I do, it's just that I haven't managed to convince myself to write about it. I've been distracted, as simple as that.

Yes, my life has been absorbed by FaceBook Roleplaying, which is, in fact, a great way of spending time. All the time. EVERY DAY.

It's fun as hell, no point in denying it (not that I want to) but of course I can't allow just one thing to grab my entire attention, so let's say I'm back.

I'm watching the new episode, and god I laughed so hard I almost choke.

So yeah, some people are talking spanish. Despite the crappy accent of one of the guys, it's a decent Spanish. Then Bane talks, and it's even better, but then he says "You've got it" which is "Lo conseguiste" but what he said is something like "Lo conseeeeguiiiiteeeees" and that's just too hilarious for words.

Today in Italian class the teacher made us watch this.

<iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="425" height="349" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Bihutd_sOuI" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen></iframe>

And I couldn't stop laughing. I'm a bad person. (And a bad student because I laughed for an entire hour)
I've been obsessively listening to this song. First in Spanish, then in English and then in Italian.

And by God, the song is ridiculously good in all three languages.


You see, in my campus we have the "CineClub de las Américas" which is a movie club that projects movies from around the world every Tuesday. Last semester I couldn't be there because I had class at the same time for the projection, but this semester? I'm free!

So I'm planning on seeing every single one of the movies. Yayy!

This semester they started with: Goodbye Lenin! and God, that's one hell of a movie. If you can, don't miss the chance to see it. It's an amazing, hilarious, heartwarming film.
Here, have a trailer.

So, there are so many things I want to talk about, so many things that have happened and are about to happen. I seriously don't know where to begin with.

Okay, let's see. I measure my life by semesters, not by years. It's easier and it's obviously the way most students do it. Interesting things happen when you are in school, not laying in your bed watching paint dry. This semester I finally, finally, begin to learn things that I actually want to learn. It's not that what I've learned so far isn't important or useful, most of it is. But this? This is what I want to do.
I'm ridiculously excited about it.

Film/Radio )

Photography and (possibly) dead people )

And finally. Tandem.
Do you want to know what tandem is? Yeah? Do you want to know?


So yeah, that's what I've been doing.  How about you?

Also, what in the name of hell is going on here?!

Tony you look sexy in that dress. )

Context is for the weak, I know people but I NEED TO KNOW.
Following my last post, this is the first movie I'll "review" .
Bear in mind this is, in no way, a serious review. It's just my opinion about the film. I'm not a critic or anything like that. I'm just someone who watches a lot of films.

La ley de Herodes


More )
I've come to realize that, in the course of an entire week, I watch three or four movies, sometimes even more.
As such, I can offer small and simple comments about it. I'm majoring in communications, and I think next semester I start with cinema, so I may have good reflections about the movie.
Right now, however, I can only offer some simple yet honest comments about each one of the movies I watch. So let's try this, after each movie I'll post a public entry that will be crossposted (as always) to livejournal. In this entry, I will share what movie I saw, why I saw it and other kind of things, just to keep track of what the hell I'm watching, and to try to have much more insight about what it dealt with. 
So yeah, that's what I'm going to do.

The format may change with time, but it's going to be something like this.

Movie Poster
Trailer or a Clip (if I can find it)
What is it about?
Why I saw it?
My thoughts about the film
My favorite scene.
What I liked
What I disliked

I'm going to start today, with a movie I will watch in a couple of minutes, and then I'm going update whenever I watch a new movie. Sounds good?
Let's see what I can get out of all this.

Let me clarify something: I'm not a patient person.

Sure, there are few things in this world that actually are problematic/offensive/disturbing or anything like that for me, so that may create the illusion that I'm patient, but I am not. Most of the time I just don't care enough to react to some situations.

That said, I try to be patient. I know I'm not perfect and that I can be mistaken as much as everyone else. I know. So, for the record, yes, I try to be as patient as humanly possible.

For those who don't know. I "own" a Zombie Survival RPG forum. Now, for those who have been on an RPG Forum before, you know people can be pretty...bitchy about almost everything. There are a lot of lay back users who won't really make a fuzz about anything not important. I love those guys, they are there, they follow rules, they offer advise and they pretty much enjoy themselves.

However, those are a minority. What I always end up finding is the bitchy users. People who don't have anything important to do and will proceed to say what's wrong with the forum. Don't get me wrong, that's amazing!. Please tell me what's wrong so we can improve.
This people won't do that. They will tell me what's wrong, they will offer a solution and as soon as I say "We will consider your advise" they assume that I said "Yes, I will make you mod and follow all of your commands".

That's bullshit people. Some users have given us amazing ideas, we are trying to apply them the best we can, but some people are never happy.
The forum uses a very simple system for role playing. You create a character, you create a theme and then another character answers you. That's a default for the forum.
There's this one user who wanted to change it. He wanted a narrator to narrate (duh) what was happening and for the users to react accordingly, kinda like a game master.
That's fine, really. I said "Okay, let's make this. Users are allowed to chose between the default mode and the narrator one" but no, he wanted the entire damned forum to follow the narrating system.

Really, people are bitchy.

And I know I'm being bitchy but I have the right to do it. I keep my temper in check when I'm on my forum, I do!

Also, the issue about time and history. I don't know why people need a completely detailed history. You can be part of a role game as long as you know the basics of the story. You don't need to be described step by step what the hell has been happening.

And really? Is it that different if the zombie infection was caused by natural causes/chemical warfare/medical purposes? The whole forum setting is located TWO YEARS after the peak infection. It doesn't matter what caused it, it matters for people to survive. And fuck! Zombies are zombies, why do they need to complicate things like this?

The next video is in spanish, but that's okay. If you don't understand spanish just stare at the pretty pictures.

There's a shop not too far from my college. And I have about $200 pesos off from sweatshirts. That's amazing, isn't it?
I think I'm going to visit the shop in a couple of days. There are some amazing things there.
Although I'm just going for the clothes, all the other things they have I can buy even closer, a little cheaper and prettier. Good thing my college is about 10 minutes from one of the oldest cities in Mexico.

I may not be moving completely to DW, after all most of my friends have a LJ account, and don't see myself leaving them or some of the most amazing comms I've ever been in.

I will try to crosspost stuff, try to get used to use DW and all that kind of stuff. Right now I cleaned most of my tags. I still have the nagging feeling that most of them are pretty unnecessary or redundant. I'll check that later, maybe I'll even allow my friends to change my tags for me (Yeah, right, that's just extra work for the good souls)

So, I'm just going to emphasize this, pay attention.


That's about it.

I'm afraid I've developed an unhealthy attachment to Christopher Moore's books.

(Also, finally got my Yoga mat, yes!)
This is a little experiment I want to do. It will be in spanish, but for those who want to try it out, please feel free to participate.

Write a sentence you wish to see decorated with Mexican (and a couple of Spanish) swear words. Any sentence.
I will translate it and I will try to add all the cuss words I can think of, without taking coherence out of the word.


Sentence "I don't know a thing"

Translation "Yo no se nada"

Cuss Sentence  "Yo no se ni un puto carajo, chinga"

Translated Cuss Sentence "I don't know a fucking shit, damn"

For those who know spanish, notice how the phrase keeps the original intent. I didn't add anything that sounds out of place, and the sentence flows easily, almost like a song.

Now, for those who speak english. The sentence may have changed a little, but I'm not as familiar with swearing in English as I am in Spanish, so if you want to add a cuss word or correct something, just do it.

Let's go, give me sentences.


This girl has a point. You can't look down at others in order to accept yourself. You shouldn't judge others to feel better.
I've talked about this already in a past post. I realized I was being hypocrite for thinking of myself gorgeous while judging people that I, in some way, envied.

You can't.

You can't learn to love yourself by hating others. That's just another way of hurting, you are just reflecting what you don't like about yourself in others.

If you are fat and you don't feel okay with that, you can't mock think people and judge them by how they look under the false pretense of being concerned because "they don't eat".
If you are skinny and you want more curves, you can't make fun of fat people and criticize the way they look, again, under a false pretense of being concerned because "they eat too much".

The same goes for all kind of things. If you don't feel pretty you can't judge gorgeous people and say they are stupid. You can't feel better about yourself by laughing at someone who doesn't look like you.

Once you've learn that accepting others is a HUGE step of accepting yourself (And the other way around).
Once you've learn that people are people and what is important is what's inside and not outside.
Once you've learn to take your time to know new people, even if they make you feel insecure. To talk to them, to treat them as a person and not a menace or a reflection of your "faults":

That's when you learn to love yourself and others. To value people not as bodies but as human beings.

Today in self defense class I met the most gorgeous woman I've ever seen. She is tall, thin, blond, with great proportions and a beautiful face. She captured the eyes of men and women easily an everyone wanted to be around her.
I felt bad, wrong. I didn't liked to by in the same room as her.
Then she was teamed up with me. For a couple of seconds she was this gorgeous woman I didn't liked to see, nevertheless touch. After ten minutes of working as a team and helping each other up, I realized she is a fantastic girl. She's kind, humble and really damn smart. She knew way more than me and she was kind and patient.
After that, she was not just the gorgeous woman. She was a team member, someone I could trust. At the end of the class she was still gorgeous, but I was feeling okay because I knew that wasn't important. That she was way more than her looks, and I realized she feels the same way about me.

I'll post the answers to the meme in a while, I've been with my family this weekend and there was no way to record without them finding out, so yeah.

I've started re-reading a couple of Anita Blake books. I know Laurell K. Hamilton isn't the best writer out there, both in talent and attitude, but I do love Edward, so I'm reading the books where he appears. (And skipping Narcissus in Chains and all kind of orgies).
As always I've noticed she repeats stuff a damn lot, but I can oversee that.

What I just noticed was the fact that, my my, the author doesn't seem to think really highly about women. Seriously.
"She's not like any woman" "She was a woman, so she was chatty" "I didn't wear makeup, strange on a woman" "Women can't shake hands" "Women are fragile" "I liked boys better" "I was one of the guys" "Pride is for men" blah blah.

I don't like it, it gets old pretty damn quickly. (But gee, I fucking love Edward)

Also, there's a problem about Edward. Laurel seems to forget about the whole "Show don't tell" thing when it comes to him. She says he is spooky, amazingly good at killing, cold, talented at murder, pitiless and most important, the thing monsters fear.
He is a human and monsters call him "Death".
Yes, he does prove he is a complete badass, but for some reason in his fight scenes he seems a bit...lame. The most amazing things he has done he does it outside the scene, someone just talks about it or some crap like that.

But yeah I love him.

(Also I dreamed that Sideshow Bob was my teacher, that was awesome.
Yes, with capital H.

See, I've always been a body acceptance preacher. I believe in body acceptance, I want to show the world that people isn't defined by the way they look.

So yesterday I was walking down the street when a girl walked by my side. She was incredibly thin, I mean, really really thin. My first thought "Ugh, disgusting" then it hit me. "Hey darling, what happened to body acceptance?".
Really. If I'm going to talk about body acceptance I need to understand that "acceptance" gets to cover ALL kind of bodies, even those I believe are perfect.
Feeling better by shaming others is not feeling better, is just being pathetic.

Good thing I realized this, now it's time to change it.
