"That. That's what I want, the way Barney feels about Nora, I want that feeling again! I don't wanna be choosing between two girls, I wanna be a complete head over heels idiot for one!"

90's Mixtape

Today's the autumnal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, so I guess it's official now: farewell, summer...

   

I remember when a guy I admired a lot when I was little gave me a mixtape he had recorded from his CD's and cassettes. I listened to it for months, even longer. It featured "Black or White" by Michael Jackson, "The Summer Is Magic" by Playahitty, and many other hit songs from the 90's.

Now I look back and realize that it's a pity how he and his sister finally ended up. But the thing is, you have to keep the good memories from your past, that's what's all about. I'll always remember him like that skinny, pimpled-faced older brother of a good friend of mine who introduced me to John Lennon, good music in general and record collecting for the first time...

Wonder if they ever think of me the same way I do about them.

Big Fish

"They say when you meet the love of your life, time stops. And that's true. What they don't tell you, is that once time starts again, it moves extra fast to catch up!"

 


"You don't know me, but my name is Edward Bloom and I am in love with you. I've spent the last three years working to find out who you are. I've been shot and stabbed and trampled a few times, had my ribs broken twice, but it's all worth it to see you here, now, and to finally get to talk to you. Because I am destined to marry you. I knew that from the first moment I saw you at the circus. And I know it now more than ever."

"There's a time when a man needs to fight, and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny is lost, the ship has sailed, and that only a fool would continue... Truth is, I've always been a fool."

 

Big Fish (Tim Burton, 2003)

Uneven day - Jopetas

Y bueno, después de un día bastante dispar, hago balance y pienso en las consecuencias.

Ahora mismo me da un poco de miedo lo que pueda pasar, y esa sensación de miedo es más fuerte que la alegría de esta mañana/tarde, y que la impotencia de esta tarde/noche.

Pienso y pienso, y le doy demasiadas vueltas a todo... Pero la única palabra que se me ocurre para poder expresar todo lo que siento ahora mismo es "jopetas". Sin más. Jopetas, qué mal que no sean otras circunstancias. Jopetas la distancia que habitualmente no me parece demasiado pero que ahora se me antoja como un abismo entre universos paralelos. Jopetas mi arcaica, naïve o excesivamente-romántica-para-los-tiempos-que-corren forma de ver todo en general... Jopetas.

Sé que es pedir demasiado, pero si no lo fuera me tragaría todos mis miedos y te lo pediría de la mejor forma que se me ocurriera.

Sé que sólo es un nombre, y como decía Shakespeare: "What's in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet"... Pero me daría algo de seguridad, ese punto de estabilidad que me hace sentir más confiada.

No es nada personal, pero no sabría cómo explicártelo. Porque ha sido a base de palos cómo me he convertido en una persona tan desconfiada... Es tut mir sooo Leid.

Jopetas, siento ser tan peñazo, siento ser tan rara, lo siento todo... Pero sobre todo siento lo que te voy a vermissen, porque de hecho ya me está pasando.

Argh.

Jopetas.

H

"De qué sexo sean en realidad me da igual, es lo que menos me importa. Me puede gustar un hombre tanto como una mujer. El placer no está en follar. Es igual que con las drogas. A mí no me atrae un buen culo, un par de tetas o una polla así de gorda; bueno… No es que no me atraigan, claro que me atraen, ¡me encantan! Pero no me seducen. Me seducen las mentes, me seduce la inteligencia, me seduce una cara y un cuerpo cuando veo que hay una mente que los mueve que vale la pena conocer. Conocer, poseer, dominar, admirar. La mente, Hache, yo hago el amor con las mentes.
Hay que follarse a las mentes."

- Dante, "Martín (Hache)"

Hi-Fi

"What came first, the music or the misery?
People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over.
Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss.
Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable?
Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?"

- Rob Fleming, High Fidelity (Stephen Frears, 2000)

Darcy

Doubts, doubts, doubts.

This is going too fast and I'm freaking out... I'm afraid I'll be giving it a miss for a while, just to see how things work out and maybe finding out wether it's worth it or not when I value your behavior.

Why is everything so weird? I have a feeling this is rather forced. It used to be so easy back then when we were in school, but now I don't know wether to throw it all away and forget everything we've passed together (que no es mucho, todo hay que decirlo), trusting it'll go as fast as it came, nor putting all my trust in another person once again, probably to find out in a time from now that it was another huge mistake, and getting hurt is the usual modus operandi, the usual result of every emotional exchange in my life.

It's been a while since I picture myself as a small, defenseless creature who, blow after blow, is slowly withdrawing into its shell never to come back to its original state.

All the bruises and all the marks are starting to show in my face and they are reflected on everything I do, say or think. Although I'm very fond of you, Dónal, it was you who gave me the two hardest masterstrokes which scarred me for life. And I've never been able to open up as naturally or as spontaneously again.

But I guess that, as usual, it was all my fault and I deserved it... Afterall, isn't karma all about that?

And I think I like it

¡Casi pleno en septiembre, más la asignatura anual Inglés C2 de Traducción!
¡Los grandes laboratorios se me rifan!
¡Y ayer pasé una tarde/noche de las de recordar con los amigos!
A ver cuánto tarda en torcerse la cosa...

Der Blaue Engel

"Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuß auf Liebe eingestellt"

- Lola Lola (Marlene Dietrich), Der Blaue Engel (Josef von Sternberg, 1930)


Where is my mind?

Right now I'm not that sure... There's too many questions and each person is giving me different answers. Am I hurrying? Should I act with caution? Maybe it's time for some quiet or casual times. I've never tried that, and it scares me a little. Or maybe I just need to drift and forget about all the fears and worries.

What I know for sure is that I'm fine this way, I enjoy a lot all the time spent together, and I wouldn't want to miss this chance to get to know someone who seems so unique and special.

Although, of course, everyone seems unique and special at first...

Il Portiere di notte

"Cuando todo parecía perdido, sucede algo inesperado...
Un fantasma de la memoria toma forma.
¿Cómo librarse de él?
Su voz y su cuerpo... Forman parte de mí mismo".

- Max T. Aldorfer,  Il Portiere di notte (Liliana Cavani, 1974)


Leben, liebe ich zu leben
ich kann euch sagen ich liebe zu gefallen
wenn auch nicht immer liebe ich zu lieben
ich weiß nicht was ich will und doch erwarte viel

Wenn ich mir was wünschen dürfte
käme ich in verlegenheit
was ich mir den wünschen sollte
einer schlimme oder gute Zeit

Wenn ich mir was wünschen dürfte
möcht ich etwas glücklich sein
denn wenn ich gar zu glücklich wäre
hätte ich heimweh nach dem traurigsein...

We're chained


"Uh" said the man to the lady
"Uh" said the lady to the man she adored...

Ready?

If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours...
But I'm not

Now I'm ready to start... (or maybe not)

La vie en rose...

"Have you ever heard of this place?"
"Nope, never... What was its name again?"

Argh. Se me están olvidando las declinaciones en alemán... :__(

And I'm glad I spent it with you.

A Hard Day's Night

It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright...

Abschalten nach einem stressigen Tag

Ida a la ciudad donde estudio a las 7, descubrir que es el día de la inauguración de la nueva estación de autobuses, caminar un kilómetro más de lo previsto hacia el punto donde quedé con una compañera mientras llovía, llegar corriendo a la facultad, hacer el examen, salir y volver a la estación con otra compañera, esperar unos 40 minutos entre el caos del primer día de funcionamiento de la estación y lidiar con unos americanos maleducados y cabreados segundos antes de subir de vuelta al autobús...

Y yo sólo quiero poder pillar la cama prontico :'(
