Alright kids you know what time it its, that’s right, its Music Monday brought to by the best dam radio station this side of the solar system. 00.0 RadioRul transmitting the very best of yesterday’s hits on our magical AM technicolor web of sound. Now today is a very special Music Monday not just because it’s the very first one haha but because today’s song is dedicated to a young girl that never seizes to amaze me, she has at one point or another been everything from my muse and primary source of inspiration to more recently my best friend and trusty sidekick. It’s a grueling task trying to pick only one song since half of my music library reminds me of some special moment spent in her company but out of all of them there is one that stands out and it just so happens to be by my all time favorite band The Red Hot Chili Peppers. The song is called Wet Sand and it belongs to the Jupiter side of the Peppers ninth studio (double) album (better referred to as an all-time music masterpiece) Stadium Arcaduim released on May 2006. This song includes one of my favorite John Frusciante solos were you can almost taste his passion for music. Hope you guys listen to it and enjoy it as much as I do.

Its Saturday afternoon and there is nothing to do (oh yeah there’s a ton of homework but not in the mood to do it right now) im sitting on my bed in Cuernavaca listening to the horrible noise one of the neighbors makes as she throws up (she has cancer and goes to quimiotherapy). Im alone because my parents went to Acapulco for the weekend (I should have stayed in Puebla) so ill just tell you about last Thursday, in the morning I went to school like always and then home to eat and do some homework, at around 5pm Balero came home with Sofia and we just hung out in the living room playing xbox and eating snacks. At 7 I went to my first yoga class and it was fun but very hard, I have 0 flexibility so I had a hard time with most of the positions they made us do. I went back home to eat something before going out and with everyone from college to McCartys pub but halfway through my meal I got a text from Neus inviting me to join her and Pau at the bar so I decided to go with them first. I got there and we had a good time then the Dj came and since Pau and Neus work there they knew him and introduced us, his name is Cesar and his music’s very good, Adrian would have loved being there. Cesar set up his gear and started mixing away; when we left he even gave me two of his sample cds and some stickers and stuff. We were gonna go to Cholula and meet up with Balero at McCartys but we got hungry and went to a drive thru taco place and ate in the car. After eating we went to Container City and found this awesome bar (don’t remember the name) that was packed with strange lookin people (not “im gonna rape you” strange, more like cool Tim Burton strange) and they had two Dj mixing incredibly well. After that I took Pau back to Rock Pub and went home.

Yesterday was my first Friday night in Puebla and I was kind of expecting it to be very crowded on the streets of Cholula but I had no real plan so I decided to go with Balero and some girls from our Photoshop class, we left at around 8 but we each went in our own car because I knew I was going to get tired of them pretty fast since we don’t have much in common. We were going to go to this bar called “La Cantinera” but since I didn’t wanna use my card I had to go to an atm machine and just my luck the only freakin atm close by wasn’t working so I had to drive for about 15 minutes to get to the next one which gave me enough time to text everyone that might have staid for the long weekend desperately wanting to go someplace else but everyone was out of town. The only person who answered my s.o.s. text was Pau who I had just met the week before. She was working and wasn’t gonna be free until 3 am so I had to go back to La Cantinera with Balero and the girls. I joined them and ordered a couple of beers while they were talking about something I don’t even remember. After the first bottle was empty they started playing some drinking game and I got bored so I gave Balero my part of the bill and took off, I walked around for a while searching for some place that might look fun but the whole street was generally dead (I had forgotten that everyone goes to their hometown on long weekends) so I went back to my car and decided to visit Pau at her work (which luckily is a bar in Puebla) when I got there I remembered Marini had told me she wanted to stay at least Friday night so I called her hoping she might be around somewhere but she was in Cuerna, she told me she had called me one day before to ask if I was gonna stay so she could have staid with me but I didn’t answer (never saw the call). To my surprise the place was full and Pau got me a stool at the bar and a cold beer, I was halfway through it when I spotted Neo sitting with another two girls in the corner so I picked up my stool and went to sit with them. We ended up having a nice time and before I knew it, it was 3 am and we were the only people left (Pau introduced us to the manager Charly and he came to drink with us and gave us free chocolate shots) I offered Pau a ride since she was coming to cholula to see Laura. I got home at around 4 and woke up at 10 to go to El callejon de los sapos where all the hippies get together to sell their bracelets and stuff it was ok. Today I think ill just stay home and rest maybe read a little.

Alright so yesterday I went to the gym after my last class and then I came home to eat and finish some homework; it was early like 5 or 6pm so Balero and I decided to go visit the twins and lya at their place (Bad idea). I hadn’t seen the twins since last Saturday at Memos house were Maria got major drunk and ended up puking in Rayas van, she was still very upset about breaking up with her boyfriend (no one knows how he put up with her so long) and she asked Balero to give her his opinion about the whole thing and it turned into a 2 hour long therapy session which I interrupted to suggest they continue it at a bar, surprisingly they said yeah so we called Dani who had been talking about this bar she loves for the last 2 weeks. We picked her up outside the main building at the central campus and made our way to the bar. Its called McCartys Pub and its kinda small but they have good music and a wide variety of international beer, after about an hour we (Dani, Balero and I, Lya and the twins had left by then) went on stage to play some rock band and after our song one of the waiters came over to ask us if we wanted to join the tournament and compete for a chance to win a Johnnie walker black label, we entered but lost to a group of 30+ year old guys called “The Nipples” (they had matching team shirts, sad I know). After that Balero epically failed trying to steal a Heineken add that was hanging in the men’s room by throwing it out the window (it got stuck on the roof) and I went over to another table to talk with a couple of girls from Washington. We got home at around 2 am and today I was falling asleep in history class but we had a good time and that’s what matters most. Now I’m gonna go out to eat with Marini and maybe Ely at Coquitos. Until next time.

See I told you I would post more often now. ( yeah Mondays a slow day for me ) so I just finished watching Gigantic with Zooey Deschanel and Paul Dano. It’s a slow movie about a guy and a girl in their 20s who meet for the first time and fall in love. Daschanel stays in her comfort zone and plays a soft-spoken eccentric rich girl while Dano interprets an equally soft-spoken shy dude who sells mattresses for a living and is determined on adopting a Chinese baby. They go out a couple times and then “happy” (Daschanel) freaks out when Brian (Dano) is accepted for the adoption, she bails on him only to come back at the end and smash a piñata of a dictador. Yup its one of those movies you go “wtf did I just watch” but not a complete waste of time (for a lazy Sunday), nice camera work and good music, ill give it a 7/10 rating. If you do like it you might also enjoy “Juno” or “Adventureland” and if you want to see more of Zooey I recommend her last two flicks “Yes” and “500 days of summer” both of them better than this one.
Wow, its happened again I completely forgot about this blog of mine. Its ok I guess since as you might be able to tell by my last post I was going through some hard times. Let me try to sum it up in a few sentences: In the end I had the time of my life in Spain ( after the first 3 months which were hell ) I made a lot of great friends and I even had a sweet Romanian girlfriend named Maria who is still a good friend of mine. I made a friend who later became like a brother to me named Ferran and he even came last summer all the way to Mexico just to hang out with me a couple of weeks. After that wild year I went back to Cuernavaca to finish high school and now I’m living in Puebla with my roommate and I’m studying Advertising designe. Life is pretty good right now and there are a lot of interesting things up ahead. (Definitely will post more often now) here’s a pic of a poster I made last night for my friend Adrian.
