Z+O+M+B+I+E (or how my life is a T+O+R+N+A+D+O)

The night started again with just a few drinks



(you know the usual game, no?)
I drink/you drink/he-she-it drinks/we drink/you drink/they drink
all people is drunk (and you seem too happy)
I repeat too happy
and we, we keep drinking...



And some people smoke (I don't, remember?) :)


It was then the moment
when things change colour



people seem blurred



drinks have no taste
and words don't come out
I just hear some strange noise
A music, a melody, an intense flow



We say we don't believe in god anymore
coz god makes us dance to it's willing
because we need no master
no master we say
hahaha
and who are they then?



They seem normal from the back
They seem normal in the front



2 eyes, 2 arms, 2 legs
Or not?
Are they our new masters?



Are we their slaves?

http://i45.tinypic.com/5kouhu.jpg

They feel like gods
they point out to the sky
challenging god
they are pointing out their supremacy over him



do they ruled now the earth?
I don't know
but
we dance to their music



Is he a demon?



or
Is he a god?



you tell me

FEATURING: Spanish bloggers PART 2

I know, I know,

Its been ages since FEATURING: Spanish bloggers PART 1

But

In my defence I must say

is not easy.

To do such an important study of so many important blogs

and resume all that information in just a post

is really complicated

maybe impossible (I tried)

and if you have a job and projects, friends etc,

is almost impossible

So I did my best

(and blogspot is giving me problems)


This time:

.4 bloggers

.5 pictures each

(even more difficult to choose)

and of course,

my small tribute at the end


4. LORENA



Lorena is the sweetest blogger you could ever meet...

I repeat

any person who knows Lorena

will agree with me,

but the softness she speaks the stronger her words sounds,

Lorena has a gift,

she is able to wear anything

anything!

and you will think it was made for her,

She could wear a trash bag,

add a ribbon

and a hat to that

and you will honestly believe is the new trend in clothing.

Follow her,

and you wont be disappointed

(this one, I believe, is her best picture, she really looks beautiful)



THIS IS LORENA


NAME:

Lorena

A.K.A:

Los Outfits de Lorena

FROM:

Santiago de Compostela

2 words to describe yourself:

scatterbrained and vain

WHERE can we find you / doing what?

In Madrid studyind audiovisual communication and on my free time, in Zara, H&M or in bars of Huertas.

Something you MUST have with you when you leave your house?

Keys, phone, ipod...

What would you change of this world (apart from hunger):

I would like everyone to live the life they want, (without harming the neighbor, obviously.)

Source of inspiration?

Alexa Chung, Mary Kate Olsen, films, pics and other blogguers.

A designer/ why?

Miuccia Prada, because all her collections are fantastic. I love her designs.

A book / why?

"La sombra del viento" by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, because it's the most beatiful and magical story I've ever read. I always cry when I read it.

A song / why?

"My Girl" by The Temptations, because it's a song that I've liked for all my life ever since I saw the film "My girl"

A film / why?

“Jeux D' enfants” because I love the main character's love story and also the way it's told.

A phrase:

"Every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway"

A wish:

my family, my friends and be happy forever.

2 words to finish:

Only 2? I want another blogger's reunion


I really like this picture




Thank you Lore,
you are a constant inspiration



5. SUE



In February 17 of 2008

Kosovo declared itself independent from Serbia,

Meanwhile in Spain

Susana was writing her first words in her new shiny blog

Yes,

Sue, is what experts called

An early adopter (Everett M. Rogers' Diffusion of Innovations, 1962)

And why she is so special?

because

even if she had a blog for 3 years now:

Her blog, as good wine,

gets better and better with time

She still has those special sparks in her eyes

when she speaks about fashion,

that's something I admire.




THIS IS SUE


NAME:

Susana

A.K.A:

Sue

FROM:

Madrid

2 words to describe yourself:

definitely, one of these words might be funny, I’m always laughing and saying silly things……and sometimes I am a bit bossy and indecisive.

WHERE can we find you / doing what?

You can find me working in an English Academy in Madrid, not only teaching children, but taking pictures during breaktime!

Something you MUST have with you when you leave your house?

My bag, with my mobile and my stuff. And now my camera too.

What would you change of this world (apart from hunger):

hypocrisy and politics.

Source of inspiration?

Street style in general and among others Alexa Chung.

A designer/ why?

I do not have a favourite designer. I have favourite season collections. My favourite Spring/summer 2010 collections are Miu Miu and Eliee Saab.

A book / why?

I love books and I love reading. I do not have a favourite book or writer.

I love mystery books with murders, unresolved mysteries and also Romantic English novels……I’m now reading some Scandinavian Crime Novels and my favourite writers are Hennin Mankell and Camilla Lackberg.

Definitely I’m a book-eater.

A song / why?

If I had to choose a song that will be Starlight by Muse. Muse is the best group ever! I love indie-rock-pop-electronic- everything that comes from outside Spain, especially from England and the States. Listening to music, reading and blogging are among my ways to escape from routine.

A film / why?

It’s difficult for me to choose one film, but one of my favourite is Mystic River. And I’m so in love with Woody Allen’s films, especially Manhattan Murder Mystery. And I cannot forget to say that I love James Dean.
A phrase:

'Life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get’ (Forrest Gump)

‘I can't listen to that much Wagner, ya know ? I start to get the urge to conquer Poland’. (Manhattan Murder Mystery)

A wish:

I hope all my dreams will come true.

2 words to finish:

Thanks Pablo!



both Sue and Clara are really good friends and even better bloggers!
"the crazy teachers" :)


Thanks Sue,
keep ahead, keep evolving,
don't change!



6. EREA



Erea is

maybe

the blogger that surprise me the most when I met her

remember what they say about how bad is to generalize with people?

this is a good example

Yes, most people may think

that because she has that glamour halo around her

she will be as one of those famous bloggers we all criticize

(you know the type)

But the moment she talks, and you find out how she really is

you can just shut up

and listen

and the more you listen to her,

the more you want her to talk




THIS IS EREA


NAME:

Erea Louro

A.K.A:

all that she wants? jaja ninguno más...

Something you MUST have with you when you leave your house?

my cell! cant live without it

What would you change of this world (apart from hunger):

Egocentric and pretentious people who get in my way

Source of inspiration?

lots! related with fashion: Alexa, Olivia Palermo, Kate Moss... with cinema: Brian de Palma , Marlene Dietricht, 30's movies...

A designer/ why?

Elie Saab, his "haute couture" dresses are perfection. Wanna get married whit one of them!!

7. KRIMLY



I remember when a showed Maria’s blog to a friend of mine

His first phrase was literally

“wow, nice legs”

yes, her legs seems to have no end,

but María is not just legs

she is much more,

a very talented girl

In my opinion,

her blog is so well done,

that if you look at her first post

(more than a year ago)

and you look at her last post,

you will really think they are closer in time



NAME:

Maria

A.K.A:

Krimly

FROM:

Madrid

2 words to describe yourself:

dreamy and positive

WHERE can we find you / doing what?

in the library studying! hahhaa I know it is not really exciting.

Something you MUST have with you when you leave your house?

my iPhone

What would you change of this world (apart from hunger):

I would like everybody speaks one language and we'll be all connected. I think Internet is the best invention ever.

Source of inspiration?

fashion magazines, blogs, photography sites, travelling and the window shopping!! ;P

A designer/ why?

Currently, Sonia Rykiel. I love the last spring 2010 show where every model was smiling and having fun on the catwalk!! I also like her feminine, fun and flirty women she represent with her collections.

A book / why?

The Neverending Story. This is my book since I was a child. At first, my brother used to read it to me at nights. Later I read it by myself. I always dreamed to be the girl who go to a Magical and Fantasy world.

A song / why?

My Immortal by Evanescence. I know I don't feel like the song express any more. But I still feel so many things when I listen to that song. It makes me vibrate.

A film / why?

Beauty and the Best (haha I am like a little girl). I do love adult films but I like so many films. So if I have to chose one, I would chose my childhood film. It was my favourite film I saw it so many times, I always wanted to be as Bella: intelligent, beautiful and kind girl who loves reading books and learning new things. I love the plot of the story: "because beauty is inside us!" I really think we shouldn't prejudice people before knowing them. You can have so many surprises...

A phrase:

"When real people fall down in life, they get right back up and keep on walking".
(Michael Patrick King, Sex and the City, The Real Me, 2001)

A wish:

live abroad for long time.

2 words to finish:

Enjoy your life because we have just one :)

True Blue

This is the name of a photo session made by the photographer

The movement and power transmitted to the photos is impressive


True Blue Refinemos nuestra asociación del azul (coff coff Christian Castro) con  este editorial de Grazia Francia de abril. La modelo es Xu Chao y la  fotografía de Brian Keith. Me gusta el cabello paralizado, la cara semi-alienígena de la chica y  las actuaciones de Prada - Miu Miu.
