Pablo Escobar: My Father

Done! I finished this book yesterday.

Although I found the first half interesting (and debatable,) I got bored of Juan Pablo’s narrative.

Written by the son of Pablo Escobar (the most powerful drug lord and narcoterrorist that ever existed,) he clearly outlines the price the family had to pay for a life they did not choose.

At first, it was difficult to understand why his father was such a wanted man, then as he grew, Juan Pablo Escobar became very aware of his father’s criminal history of violence.

Overall this is a good book, however, I’m not sure how credible some of Juan Pablo’s recollections are, considering that he was only 16 when his father was killed… How much a teenager can understand of an international criminal enterprise?

From times the author tries to look badass, but most of the time he is apologetic… And I may sound like a jerk but I found him ANNOYING!

I have no doubts Juan Pablo is a decent man, he is also a victim… And all the shit he went through in exile in Argentina (with all the names he mentions that I’m familiar with) was malicious as hell.

Yet, I don’t buy his humble character. I don’t feel it (at least not in this book).

I feel more like he’s seeking empathy, and perhaps also trying to humanise a bit his dad’s image. I don’t condemn him and I don’t admire him.

What Juan Pablo makes me feel is complete indifference.

I believe we all transit our issues the best we can, and this was his way.

New Book

Last Saturday I had sex with a straight guy, but I’ve haven’t fuck since Sunday…  Randy effectiveness to keep me calm is undeniable, and by far he’s the only guy that gives me enough to rest few days.

Also, I’m entering a new stage that I’ll be able to mention on Friday.

Since sex is not happening by choice, for few more days, I’m focusing on painting and also on this new book I just bought… Pablo Escobar: My Father.

I guess you all get what this memoir is about.

Growing in South America, Pablo Escobar was a very popular name, although, I never paid attention on him in detail. He was “famous” but not from my country.

All I knew is that he was the most powerful drug lord and criminal back then, and whenever you heard “Colombia” you immediately associated with aguardiente and drugs.

Pablo Escobar is NOT the one on Netflix.

This memoir is not the story of a child seeking redemption for his father, but a shocking look at the consequences of violence and the overwhelming need for peace and forgiveness. More to come…

¡Cállate la boca!

The Associated Press reports:

Pope Francis accused victims of Chile’s most notorious pedophile of slander Thursday, an astonishing end to a visit meant to help heal the wounds of a sex abuse scandal that has cost the Catholic Church its credibility in the country. Francis said that until he sees proof that Bishop Juan Barros was complicit in covering up the sex crimes of the Rev. Fernando Karadima, such accusations against Barros are “all calumny.”

The Pope’s remarks drew shock from Chileans and immediate rebuke from victims and their advocates. They noted the accusers were deemed credible enough by the Vatican that it sentenced Karadima to a lifetime of “penance and prayer” for his crimes in 2011. A Chilean judge also found the victims to be credible, saying that while she had to drop criminal charges against Karadima because too much time had passed, proof of his crimes wasn’t lacking.

“As if I could have taken a selfie or a photo while Karadima abused me and others and Juan Barros stood by watching it all,” tweeted Barros’ most vocal accuser, Juan Carlos Cruz. “These people are truly crazy, and the pontiff talks about atonement to the victims. Nothing has changed, and his plea for forgiveness is empty.”

So a man of faith, who requires that his flock accept what he says solely on faith… refuses to accept the word of several members of his flock… requiring proof.

I had no idea there were no mirrors for self-reflection at the Vatican.

Seriously, I expected better from Bergoglio (aka Francis). I’m disappointed.

For him, an Argentine, I have three common words towards idiots: CASHATE LA BOCA!!

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!

TOP 10 TUNE OF THE YEAR

The year is almost over, and as every year here are the songs I played the most.

As usual, it was very hard to make a “top 10” but in this opportunity, particularly, I’m surprised by the amount of Latin songs that marked me on 2017…

I guess the fact that I’ve been single this year, and that Spanish is my first language, made me more vulnerable to the lyrics of those songs.

The songs below are now forever part of my past.

10- Traicionera by Sebastián Yatra  

09- J’ai Cherché by Amir 

08- That’s What I Like by Bruno Mars

07- Me Llamas by Piso 21 ft. Maluma

06-Boys by Charli XCX 

05-Friends by Justin Bieber & BloodPop

04- What Lovers Do by Maroon 5 ft. SZA

03- Kamikaze by Patrice Michaud 

02- Me Rehúso by Danny Ocean

01- Sé Que Te Duele by Alejandro Fernández ft. Morat

And my TOP SONG of 2017 is:

Felices Los 4 by (my other husband) Maluma

Enjoy!!
