This happens one in a lifetime, and I'm glad it happened in mine.

If you missed it don't worry, you'll only have to wait 1000 years for the next time.

I Still Don't Have A MySpace, but....

...now I do have a Facebook.

I finally succumbed and, despite I fierily refused to open a Facebook account for a while, now I decided to give it a shot.

I've been too lazy to keep up posting to my 5+ blogs in the way I would have liked, as I sometimes lack of time (best excuse), a good theme to write about o simply interest of doing it. I hope this "Gossipbook" thing doesn't become another bad excuse to neglect my other chores.

Anyway, my plans with my fragrantly new Facebook profile go farther than just blabbing with old (and new) friends. I plan to use it to do real networking, trying to get my message to where it wouldn't be possible without its capabilities.

I'm still old school and I still believe email and IM are the best ways to get connected, but heck it's 2008 already and I have to move on.

Cerberus

I saw this cloud formation and immediately found a resemblance with a dog, now I don't know if it may be a hellish or a celestial dog... or maybe Cerberus with two missing heads?.

Travelers of the South

A couple of friends started the adventure of going from Bogota, Colombia to Miami, FL riding their motorcycles. Some friends joined them in California and rode altogether from the west coast to the east coast, arriving finally to Miami.

They kept a blog documenting all the trip, with detailed stories, photos and videos. Although it is written in Spanish, it's something worth to read.

Dos motociclistas salen de Bogota, Mauricio y Gonzalo, para el norte, en
Feb/28/2008. El primer trayecto, Bogotá- Panamá con sus motos en avión.
Recorreran Centroamerica por la via Panamericana,; en Mexico despues de
escudriñar la Peninsula de Yucatán y el centro del país (DF) entran por Baja
California a USA; Otro compañero, Jorge, sale de Miami, Fl hacia Los Angeles.
Simultaneamente, Laura, la hija de Gonzalo, se dirige desde NY a LA para
acompañarlos unos dias. Juntos van a escudriñar el oeste estadounidense, Valle
de la Muerte y Cañon del Colorado y finalmente hacer un "costa a costa" buscando
en Miami un vuelo de vuelta a sus origenes.

She Played Like A Pro

My daughter played Viola in a concert her Doral Middle School's orchestra performed together with the Miami Youth Symphony Project's orchestra.

Both directors, Mr. Custis Edwards and Mr. Alex Berti, marvelously conducted their kids to produce one of the best live performance I've ever heard.

Maybe it was just parent's pride, but for me these kids played like long time professionals.

Invention #4, directed by Mr. Curtis Edwards



Idylls of Pegasus, directed by Mr. Alex Berti



My most sincere congratulations to these two exceptional Directors and their magnificent orchestras.

Soda Stereo... una eternidad esperé este instante.

A decade ago, the best exponent of the Latin Rock movement, the band that inspired every other band in Latin America, decided to separate. Gustavo Cerati, Charly Alberti and Zeta Bosio couldn't withstand a single day together, they couldn't coexist any longer, they needed a break from each other and so they split, leaving behind 15 years of magical music, sold-out tours, platinum discs and millions of crying fans. Soda Stereo muted its voice.

De aquel amor de música ligera
nada nos libra, nada más queda.

Now, after a long decade, they revived our memories, they transported us to our recent past and made us evocate those wonderful moments in our lives, when we where younger, when we spent incredible nights just being ourselves, drinking beers and listening to Soda.

Golpean la puerta
Por décima vez
Es que falta alguien por venir
Cuando me suba esa cara de gaste
Y me baje el alcohol
Entre el alud podré asomar mi nariz
Y salir a la calle

The American Airlines Arena filled up with the best music any band in Latin America could only dream to produce, to play, to sing. Soda Stereo is back, and it doesn't matter if its voice mute again for another long decade, what we lived tonight was worth the wait.

Tarda en llegar
Y al final, al final
Hay recompensa
En la zona de promesas

Y sin embargo esperas
Un laberinto sin sorpresas
Y sin embargo
Aun puedes abrir tu caja negra
