OCTOBER 12TH, JOTAS AND CAKE

When I was a kid October the 12th was the most important day in my hometown. Local fests were at their peak, with the flower tribute to the Virgin from the peasants, dressed in the traditional local costumes. It was the only day I didn’t mind to wear long earrings and a necklace with a cross. After 30 years I can admit I liked the outfit.

I forgot about the outfit soon and focused on partying when I was a teenager, and those were party animal days for real.

When you get older you don’t care so much about these things, at least I do not. I don’t like local fests anymore, so packed with people, nah! Not my thing.

Nevertheless on this day, there are other things celebrated and vindicated.

On one hand, Spanish speakers around the world celebrate the Hispanic day, but as usual, there’s the other side of the coin, with people blaming poor Columbus for all the Native American killing when conquering and settling in the land. Columbus found this land by chance, and human kind should be blamed, not just a single historic character. But hey! I’m not Columbus relative and can sleep fine at nights.

It’s also a national day in Spain, but since there’s all this controversy and waves of independence, lately concentrated in Catalunya, it’s a day of struggle, everybody trying to prove who is right or wrong. Not all the Catalonians feel as part of Spain, same as not all of them are seeking for independence. Demonstrations, flags, and lots of riot squad ready to beat the shit out of everyone if required. I really hate this tendency to politicize any events. Bullshit!

And finally, one of the things which has always disgusted me the most, it’s Army parade, broadcasted on national TV, with the King and some politicians looking proud and in approval to all our defense display. Spain and the army, it’s ridiculous! So much money diverted to the Army while more thant 25% of subjects are unemployed with all the benefits being cut down, tax being raised, and all the crap we are swallowing… I think this exercise of flaunt is not necessary nowadays.

With such tension floating in the air I decided to recover the fest I used to live in my childhood and no, I didn’t wear costumes, but I sang dirty jotas, had wine and other joyful refreshments, and enjoyed a wonderful BBQ party with friends, who chose this day to celebrate Xavi’s and my birthday. And it was a blast!

Why do we have to ruin a feast on behalf of stuff which is actually killing our happiness and welfare? We can complain and moan for rest of our lives, but friends, sometimes we need a goddam break, for Fuck’s sake! Let’s have some fun!

Ah, by the way! The cake was super awesome, and now I have this at home… Awsomeness!!!

DEVOTED TO THE DARK SIDE

I’ve always referred to villains as the most interesting characters in films. They are mean, and have an attitude, and their lack of remorse in their acts, can make you feel disturbed, but attracted to them at the same time.

There are many interesting fictional villains whose acts have turned them into icons, don’t you think?

Again it’s time to make a list. I’ve thought of these 5 for being the first ones I’ve got on mind, but I’ll regret (actually I’m already regretting) not having include some more.

Enjoy my evil side!

The villain in suit: Patrick Bateman

I’ll never stress enough how much I love Bateman. Not sure whether all the atrocities he commits are for real, or just an insane desire inside his head, Patrick is a villain with class. Obsessed by his external appearance, trying to fit IN, he’s only capable of experimenting pleasant feelings by killing and chopping human bodies.

The villain with a smile: The Joker

Another personal favorite I’ve already talked about, The Joker with his grotesque smile, before becoming Gotham city’s public enemy #1, he was already a powerful and evil human being who would do anything for his own behalf. Once turned into The Joker, his main passion is to seed panic in the city, considering all its citizens expendable when trying to achieve his two targets: become the lord of Gotham city, and defeat Batman, his counterpart and main enemy. He can’t stand the man in black’s popularity.

The villain from outer space: Darth Vader

What can I say? Vader has rocked my world since I was 4-5 years old. The most loyal supporter of the Emperor Palpatine just works 24/7 for turning the Universe under his master’s command and just defeating the rebel cause is reward enough for him. With his former Jedi powers and his enormous strength provided by his half clone perfect body, plus a very well developed mean attitude, even those working for the same cause, fear him.

The villain with a religious belief: The preacher

A wolf disguised in lamb fur, The preacher is a rat, moved by his thirst for money, has a skill for nonsense talking, and with a neat appearance, the explanation for his knuckle tattoos, love-hate,  and false religious attitude,  he manages to cheat everyone successfully.

 

The villain in tattoos: Max Cady

Revenge is his main motivation. After spending 14 years body building, getting inked and studying law in the can, once released, he seeks pleasure by stalking and disturbing his former counselor and his family.

Now it’s your time to add some contributions to this post. C’mon!!! Can’t wait to see which ones are your fav villains.
