Motivational Post...

"If you find that you still lack confidence, try this exercise. Stand in front of a mirror with the lights turned off. Stare at your ghostly visage and say with confidence, "I'm bad. I'm really, really bad."   - From "How to be a villain" chronicle books.

Top 10 heroes...

Jumpin' on the bandwagon ... (the next blog list entry gauntlet was thrown by ben), and looking for an excuse to stall working, here's a list of my top 10 fictional heroes...
I recommend listening to some epic metal tunes while readin' , perhaps some dream theater...or some classical john williams...

10. Rick Blaine (From Casablanca)
Yvonne: Where were you last night?
Rick: That's so long ago, I don't remember.
Yvonne: Will I see you tonight?
Rick: I never make plans that far ahead.
- smoothness, new role model...I has it

9. Naota Nandaba
From Fooley Cooley, Anime, 'cause all guys have a Mamimi and a Haruko in our lives.

8. Piccolo
From baddest MoFo villain, to one of the best allies the good guys could have, without loosin' that edge.

7. Guy Montag
From Ray Bradbury's "Farenheit 451" a sci-fi novel, in a future were books are ilegal, because reading leads to thinking, and thinking leads to unhapiness, this guy's metamorphosis is illustrated throughout the book and who presents the dystopia through the eyes of a loyal worker to it, a man in conflict about it, and one resolved to be free of it.

6. Cloud Stryfe (Final Fantasy VII)
From loner mercenary , to breaking free from his past, to becoming a hero and getting the chick. all the elements from a hero's journey

5.The Crow
This antihero, was born from personal tragedy, joy division and Edgar Allan Poe
"It is not death if you refuse it" - Eric Draven
Determination, this guy had it

4. Edward Bloom
"I've been nothin' but myself since the day I was born, and if you can't see that it's your failin', not mine. " the first time you see how the story of his life actually ends....damn. he set the whole thing up. 

3. Darth Vader
From baddest MoFo in the galaxy, to saving the universe in the ultimate sacrifice, there's nothing the audience enjoys more than

2. Batman
In Grant Morrison's first storyline in JLA, Superman describes Batman as "the most dangerous man on Earth," able to defeat a team of super powered aliens all by himself in order to rescue his imprisoned teammates.

1. Superman
"It is a remarkable dichtonomy. In many ways, Clark is the most human of us all superheroes, then... he shoots fire from the skies and it is difficult not to think of him as a God. And how fortunate we are that it does not occur to him" - Batman

"I love God, he's so deliciously evil" - Stewie Griffin (Family Guy)

Gather 'round kids, uncle Bob's story time...

Alrededor de 1985, su humilde narrador tenia 5 años, y se encontraba cursando el 2do. año de jardín de niños, en el glorioso "Colegio México", una escuela privada manegada por "Monjitas", los archivos de la escuela indican que sabía contar hasta el 73, sabía como se llamaban mis papás, mi dirección, pero no sabia amarrame los zapatos.

Un buen dia, llego la directora del jardín de niños..."La Señorita Ina", una mujer que en ese entonces facilmente tenia mas de 50 primaveras cumplidas, que nunca se habia casado, habia dedicado su vida a Dios Nuestro Señor, pero no era monja. Ella pasaba de vez en cuando a contarnos historias "divertidas" y con moralejas....como la del niño que no trataba muy bien a su pierna y un dia se despertó y su pierna se habia ido...pero, la que en realidad me causo un buen trauma, considerando que A) tenía 5 años y B) siempre he gozado/sufrido de imaginación hiperactiva, fue la siguiente (que alomejor no es exactamente como sucedió pero si es como me acuerdo):

Contaba la historia de un orferinato/orfanatorio* (checar con el copy) que vivian varios niños en mismos cuartos, estos cuartos estaban acomodados de tal manera que eran tipo pasillos, con las camas o mas bien catres acomodados a los lados, (yo me lo imaginaba como esas peliculas de manicomios con catres, sabanas blancas y el techo en triangulo, como si fuera el attico de una iglesia). Todos los días los niños tenian que ir a dormir a la misma hora y se apagaban todas las luces...

Una noche uno de los niños, despertó a medianoche y se dió cuenta que habia algo en el cuarto junto con ellos (insertar chistes de sacerdotes pederastas....ahora, esperar a que se te pase la risa nerviosa...darte cuenta que esta mal reirte de esos chistes y continuar....) habia una especie de demonio haciendo recorrido por el cuarto... no tenia forma ni color definido, era como una sombra...su color era como cuando se va el cable en la televisió... ruido blanco o distorción... el niño salio corriendo y le fue a tocar la puerta al sacerdote que cuidaba al orferinato... el sacerdote escucho lo que le decia el niño y tranquilamente lo llevo al cuarto...llegando ahi, el niño le apunto al demonio, mientras este brincaba de cama en cama, brincando sobre los niños, algunos lloraban, algunos gritaban, pero ninguno se despertaba... esto lo hacia repetidas veces... (me lo imaginaba recorriendo de cama en cama, la 1, 2, 3, 4, etc...y luego volvia a empezar), pero se brincaba algunas camas...no era en todas.

El sacerdote le dijo "No te preocupes, lo que estas viendo es un demonio de pesadillas, lo manda el Diablo para que a los niños que no se persinan antes de dormir, les de pesadillas, es su castigo... las camas que les saca la vuelta, son de los niños que se acordaron de persinarse y decir sus oraciones antes de dormir...si tu te persinas y portas bien, el demonio no te puede hacer nada"....y asi nomas, se fue a dormir...dijo que el no podia hacer nada para evitarlo....el niño se persino y se durmió, obviamente sabiendo que el demonio seguia en el cuarto y en lo que se quedaba dormido, solo le queda ver como sus compañeros lloraban o hablaban solos.

The End

Tengo 28 años, y no puedo dormir sin persinarme...
todavia me acuerdo de como me imagine ese demonio...

Who needs therapy ?

P.S...."Coincidence is bull" esta historia se la conte a mi mamá hace como 2 años y me djio "Bueno, pues antes te daban miedo todas esas cosas, ahora las dibujas...si no fueran por esos traumas alomejor serias contador o algo asi"

St. Valentines Day Special "Top 5 Movie Quotes"

These guys knew what they where talkin' about.

5. "Estellaaaaaaa!!!!" * 
. Finn (Great Expectations)

4. “Mujer: yo soy una mujer descente”

Mauricio Garcéz: "... yo ese defecto se lo corrijo rápidamente”
(Modisto de Mujeres)

3. "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 Gordon (Played by John Cusack - High Fidelity)

2. "... Here's looking at you kid"
- Humbrey Bogart (Casablanca)
Answering Ingrid Bergman's "I can't fight it anymore. I ran away from you once. I can't do it again. Oh, I don't know what's right any longer. You have to think for both of us. For all of us. "

1. "Frankly My Dear, i don't give a damn" 
- Rhett Butler (Gone with the wind)
answering Scarlett's: Rhett, Rhett... Rhett, if you go, where shall I go? What shall I do ?

*"Stellaaa" is more commonlly associated with the film "A street car named desire", as in Marlon Brando fame, which should receive honorable mention in the list, our editor is refering to the scene in "Great expectations", a tribute scene to Brando actually, an it's spelled "Estella", and works as a set up to a much larger scene in which Finn confronts Estellas aunt, who basically set him up from the beginning Finn screaming outside" I did it! I did it! I am a wild success! I sold 'em all, all my paintings. You don't have to be embarrassed by me anymore, I'm rich! Isn't that what you wanted, aren't we happy now. Don't you understand, that everything I do, I do it for you. Anything, that might be special in me, is you....aunt opens the door "Cant you feel that? It's my heart and its broken", Estela was gone alredy....in the Brando film, he gets the chick in the famous "STELLA, don't ever leave me scene"...Hope this clarifies the situation and any doubts toots..
