Gravity-Defying Sculptures

Art is supposed to challenge us. Challenge our beliefs, our prejudices and even our concepts of what we believe to be possible.

Sculptures are a great medium for this, as they allow the artist to play tricks on the eye and mess with the viewer’s concepts of logic. Calling into question the laws of gravity and physics they make you wonder, how the heck did they do that?

From incredible feats of balance on a grand scale, to just plain head-scratching sorcery, below few of them.

MOVIES MARATHON PART IV

Not only I had some climax today, I also watched few movies.:

DESIRE

This is an Argentine film and the original title is Desearás al hombre de tu hermana (You will desire your sister’s man…) and that’s exactly what this movie is about.

This film is 20% drama, 30% dark comedy, and 50% lust. 

Although I found it entertaining, this movie is not for everyone due to the explicitness. It was not a great film whatsoever BUT it keeps you focus…

Specially the anatomy of the two guys on it… 

It’s a good thing I got laid today.

=======================================================

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

The movie is too long, too violent, too silly-too everything. Yet for those who enjoyed the original Kingsman, it is a more than adequate second act. It’s pretty much over-the-top, same as John Wick Chapter 2. 

However, I didn’t like much the plot this time. And although the Statesman was a brilliant idea to branch out to American audiences, seeing Halle Berry and Channing Tatum on it take a bit of the magic away. 

Regardless, Taron Egerton is still my boyfriend and the action is pretty solid.

Something was amiss but was fun nonetheless!

Tango

Music is part of my everyday since forever, I’ve posted about salsa few times and what it does to my mood. But not only that genre influences me. When I need passion, Tango is what I play.

Born in South America I was used to many types of music, but my predilection for tango was associated with the image of my maternal grandparents dancing it, and particularly my grandpa.  

My mom’s dad was a Casanova, and it was just natural that he loved Tango, as Tango is extremely sex!

But when I was a kid I didn’t see that way, of course. My grandpa used to play his tango records and I got used to them.

From Gardel to Goyeneche, from Piazzola to Mores as a melody or a song, the intensity of  tango is contagious.

Few days ago, the grandfather of one of my cousins died. This man, same as my grandfather loved tango, and during his funeral tango played in the background.

While elegant, passionate and intense, Tango seems to be the music of an extinguished generation.

I’m dedicating this post to my late grandfather whose birthday in life was yesterday.

An assignment I have on hold. But one day, I will tango too!

Negligence or Sunken by Accident?

The disappearance of the Argentine submarine ARA San Juan and her 44 crew on Nov. 15 is the most serious incident for the country’s armed forces in decades.

The official version is a salad of incongruousness as it’s the case of most big tragedies involving governments.

Argentine navy spokesman Enrique Balbi said it’s not known “exactly what happened” to the missing vessel, while a search and rescue mission involving aircraft and 13 ships from seven countries  including the Brits (war enemies of the Falkland Islands) and the Americans.

Coincidentally, both were making naval practices near Chile…

Strangely enough and to add more stupor, the government refused the Russian aid.

What really happened here?

Some are accusing the government of negligence (rumour has it the submarine signalled a malfunction but the government didn’t allow them to resurface) while some others are thinking something went wrong during those other countries practices.

Negligence or sunken by accident?

The fact is 44 souls lost all faith 3000 metres under the sea.

Condolences to all the families. May those sailors rest in peace.
