Wrong turns


Excuse me, Sir? 
I've been roaming around searching for this street, but I find myself making all the wrong turns. 
Is there anyway you can help me get there?

A penny for your thoughts


I haven't written because, contrary to my own advice and knowledge, I don't walk away, I'm stuck...on the same merry-go-round....around and around...same old, same old.

I still keep falling in the same rabbit hole, still keep doing the same mistakes.

I don't open doors, I keep them well closed. I sometimes open tiny windows where I peek through and then just run back in.

Problem is every time I take a peek, there's nothing moving or exciting calling for me, so I stay, stuck, waiting.

Waiting for them, those god forsaken butterflies that will one day take me in there wings and fly me out of here. To a new and exciting adventure.

Until then, odds are I won't budge.

Incubus

Finally got to see them live last week! Loved it!

Obstacle


Darling, you're a rock in my path. 
A beautiful one I always stop to admire. 
But nonetheless a rock in my way

Rock in Rio 2012

The weekend started great and ended beautifully!

Friday I finally got to see Metallica live and they definitely did not disappoint! They started out with older tracks and then played the whole black album from end to beginning. The encore brought Fight Fire With Fire, One and  Seek and Destroy, the last song played by these giants of heavy metal.


Saturday brought old school classics Limp Bizkit, The Offspring, Linkin Park and Smashing Pumpkins.
When Limp Bizkit started playing the crowd was already pretty compact for the first show of the evening, they started the fire with My Generation, rapping it up with Rollin. 
The Offspring didn't let it fade, with old school classics like Staring at the Sun, Get a Job, Americana and Pretty Fly among others that drove the crowd crazy, singing at the top of their lungs.
With Linkin Park came the night's climax, in a intense hour and a half, the lyrics where sang in unison with the fans that knew by heart classics like Given Up, Somewhere I Belong, Numb, Breaking the Habit, Crawling, In The End, the list goes on and on. The crowd went wild and they justified the presence of over 80 thousand people. 

The night ended with The Smashing Pumpkins, in a softer, less euphoric mode. I expected more from Billy Corgan, but the day was already won, no matter what came next.

Hank & Karen



Hank: Karen, I don’t get it. What do you want from me?
Karen: Something you can’t give me, something you’ve never been able to give me: Something to look forward to.
Hank: I’m sorry.
Karen: Don’t be, it’s not your fault. It’s mine, it’s always been mine…If you were going to have sex with someone, and you knew it was going to be the absolute last time, what do you think it would be like?
Hank: I think it would be incredibly sad.
Karen: Yeah, so do I…make me sad…

How is it possible to fall into the same exact rabbit hole, in the same exact spot, repeatedly?
Maybe it's the thrill of the fall...or maybe the hope of finding something different at the end of it.

Movie Karen: Why does he love her so much? I mean what is it about her? 

Hank: I don't know. I don't think I've ever known. I think sometimes you get it right the first time and then it defines your life. It becomes who you are.

You're killing me softly

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Says it all



I don't mind where you come from 
As long as you come to me
But I don't like illusions I cant see
Them clearly
I don't care, no I wouldn't dare 
To fix the twist in you
You've shown me eventually what you'll do
I don't mind
I don't care
As long as you're here

Go ahead and tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
And do it all over again
It's all the same

Yellow diamonds in the light
And we're standing side by side
As your shadow crosses mine
What it takes to come alive

It's the way I’m feeling I just can't deny
But I've gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place

Shine a light through an open door
Love and life I will divide
Turn away cause I need you more
Feel the heartbeat in my mind

LANA DEL REY - BLUE JEANS


Blue jeans, White shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like James dean, for sure
You so fresh to death & sick as ca-cancer
You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favorite sweater, and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in december, oh baby!
I will love you till the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that your mine
Baby can you see through the tears
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember
Some guys look at you like they want sex. Jace looks at you like you've already had sex, it was great, and now you're just friends--even though you want more. Drives girls crazy. You know what I mean?

What a wicked thing to do 
To let me dream of you

This is comfortable, this feels like home, I can lean on you.
Don't let me fall, don't ruin this.
Where we're at is where we should be.

Beastly

My favorite fairy tale and the one that messed up my love expectations, comes to life in modern days.

"You know, that something underneath, it's catnip for sappy tools like me, to be the one to uncover it"
This right here says it all, always waiting to be the one who sees him underneath, gets to him and successfully changes the beast to his best.

"Can you imagine that love? Can you?"

1st Day of Summer

And so it starts!

Friday, June 17, 2011

  "Morde-me com o querer-me que tens nos olhos
  Despe-te em sonho ante o sonhares-me vendo-te,
  Dá-te vária, dá sonhos de ti-própria aos molhos
  Ao teu pensar-me querendo-te...

  Desfolha sonhos teus de dando-te variamente,
  Ó perversa, sobre o êxtase da atenção
  Que tu em sonhos dás-me... E o teu sonho de mim é quente
  No teu olhar absorto ou em abstracção...

  Possue-me-te, seja eu em ti meu spasmo e um rocio
  De voluptuosos eus na tua coroa de rainha...
  Meu amor será o sair de mim do teu ocio
                                                                                                    
  E eu nunca serei teu, ó apenas-minha?" 
                                                                               
                                                                             Fernando Pessoa

Arctic Monkeys New Album - Suck It And See


 Suck it and see
You never know
Sit next to me
Before I go
Jigsaw women with horror movie shoes
Be cruel to me, ’cause i’m a fool for you

I poured my aching heart into a pop song
I couldn’t get the hang of poetry
That’s not a skirt girl, that’s a sawn off shotgun
And I can only hope, you’ve got it aimed at me

Suck it and see
You never know
Sit next to me
Before I go
Jigsaw women with horror movie shoes
Be cruel to me, ’cause i’m a fool for…

Girls from once upon a Shangri-La
How I often wonder where you are
You have got that face that just says “Baby I was made to break your heart”

Le Love


From Le Love
Why can’t I stop thinking about you? It was such a mistake. All of it… an all-consuming error in judgment that had me captivated and mesmerized by the situation. A good girl to the core, this was far beyond the everyday workings of such a responsible and trustworthy person like myself. Would it be corny to say, “you had me at hello”? - Because you did. I was drawn to you like a drug and from the first night that we spent together I was hooked. You were the perfect escape and release from the mundane aspects of reality. I would daydream about you and smile when I saw your name flash up on my phone; I would go back to the park where we met hoping to see you. It started out so innocent, the standard steps of a growing romance but then you broke my heart and made me become the other woman and in doing so you forced me to defy all the written rules of sisterhood and common decency. With this new information I tried to stay away from you and to be mature about what had happened and ignore the fact that you had used me, the fact that you had taken advantage of my naivety and my openness. But you were everywhere I looked, everywhere I went and you would reel me back in with empty promises and sweet talkings. You would tell me how beautiful I was and how you thought I was one of the most fascinating people you had ever met and so we went round in pointless and painful circles. You would hurt me and I would let you. You had even somehow let me believe that this was my idea and you were going along for the ride. To this day I still don’t know if you were right. Was it my fault? Could I have done more to prevent this? I shall spend years contemplating this. But because of you, I have grown – you took away my innocence and left me damaged. Things have been over for years, but you still obtain such a large space in my thoughts and I need closure, a concluding end to this chapter in my life that will always make me feel shame. So this is it. This is me saying goodbye to you, and that I will soon be the person I was once again. This is also me saying sorry, sorry that I let you hurt me, it wont happen again.

Franco Day

and then 
the Oscars

To be complete...he should take one home today

Monday, February 21, 2011



I know I can't take one more step towards you
Cause all that's waiting is regret
And don't you know I'm not your ghost anymore
You lost the love I loved the most


I learned to live half alive
And now you want me one more time


And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are
