Yesterday I was so busy, I couldn't find my head through the things to be done on time. But today is another day, and finally I'm under less stress. The only bad news are that Hugo Chávez died, the rest can wait. I remember two documentaries made on Chávez, by two different colored channels. One was somehow in the grand finance sponsored line, where Chávez was clearly presented as an antidemocratic Khmer Rouge dictator who obviously doesn't know left from right, and the other one was made by the … [Read more...]

America is under an attack to the good taste, but what I say, not only America, the whole world is under the same attack. It seems Jay-Z and Beyoncé are everywhere, as Rihanna and Chris Brown are also everyday in the news. The "music" created by Jay-Z is of a value known by himself.

People call "genius" trash like this: But I know that if I stay stunting All these girls only gon' … [Read more...]

This short essay was intended more like a pictorial. After the pics, I added the words. The words are dedicated to kids who's fathers weren't near to show them the art of a real shaving. The ancient Egyptians are known to have shaved their beards and heads, a custom later adopted by the Greeks around 330 BC, during the reign of Alexander the Great and Romans after them. The practice was encouraged as a defensive measure for soldiers, preventing the enemy from grasping their hair in … [Read more...]
There are rules in cigar smoking. One have to be a man to do it, as in, let's say, not a parrot, or a monkey. The following image is considered as the example of male potency, especially a cigar smoking potent male. [source] Unfortunately, who doesn't keep the cigar like Tony Montana, is not male enough. Not that if someone smokes like him, would be, but look at this other one, and think what happened with him. [source] Too relaxed, not keeping his cigar like Al Pacino, or … [Read more...]
