Music you are ashamed to addmit you like.

I have a friend who is very "musical", what do I try to say with this?, well he just needs to listen to a song once to remember it completly, and as a bonus, if the song is catchy he will be singing it all day long. Some people might think this is a gift, I just think it is exploitable.

When we work together on any project we have a deal with music, we will take turns picking up songs, so I will pick up one and he will pick up the next and so on, this usually works fine until someone (me) picks up an annoying catchy song on a slow day (because I'm bored) to annoy the other person who usually responds with something like "damn it I hate you TURN THAT SHIT OFF!!!!" However I just ignore his plead wich leads to a lets-pick-the-worst-and-most-annoying-songs-ever battle to the point in wich both of us play songs that even annoy ourselves (or thats what he thinks) 

The truth is I have a lot of annoying, corny or repetitive songs in my arsenal that I'm ashamed to addmit I actually like, but I know I'm not alone in this!!! I know people who are usually like "oh I hate this song" but then they dance to it or have it on their computers, or simply don't mind it while listening to it on the radio.

So this is why I ask you... What songs are you ashamed to addmit you like and you probably listen to it as loud as you can inside your closet???

Just a little example of what I'm talking about.

Coffee shops and laptops

The other day a friend and me went to this nice coffeehouse near my place, we wanted to talk and this kind of places are great to do that, you know, the faint lights, the ambiental music, the coffee and a nice view. But when we got there I was pretty confused to see that like 2/3 of the people had an open latop with them. I mean, why in the name of God, would you take your laptop to a place where you supposedly go to TALK and INTERACT with someone else.

Ok let's think of the reasons to bring a laptop to a coffee shop:

1. You have a lot of work to do, but this person you really like wanted to go out, and you being the nicest person in the world go out in a date with your lover... and your work (because you are a really responsible person right?).

Brrrt wrong. It was saturday night, you most likely have nothing to do at the next day.

2. You have something (maybe video, photos or w/e get creative) in your laptop and you want to share it with the person you are going out with... because a public place is the best place to show others your shameful pictures.

Brrrt wrong. All the people with a laptop had them pointing at themselves, and sometimes there were as many laptops as persons in the table. (Fk sharing this be only mine!)

3. You are a trendy hipster (oh the irony) and you think having a laptop in a coffee shop is neat because you think it makes you look smart.

Oh we have a winner! The screens I got to spy on, had: desktop wallpaper, the browser on google, 2 lines of an in-progress-email, and other trivialities. I couldn't help but laugh out loud in the middle of the shop when I stopped to think about it.

So now you know folks, bring your laptop next time you are on a date in a coffee shop! and maybe you would look as happy as this little guy.

A couple memories.

An old friend will spend a couple here like a scale in one of his many trips, wich is great because he is a really fun person and always manages to deal with weird situations.

I remember this one time in Madrid, we were around the city at night looking for something to do, it was pretty late but we were still a bit too drunk to realize (drinking wine is a bad BAD thing) we saw a something maybe it was a night club or a bar I can't remember, however we locked it as our next target but the guy that lets you in didn't wanted us to, we were trying to convice him but I doubt our drunk reasoning was working because at some point my friend starts saying "Let us in! we are mexican!!!" Yeah right! as if being mexican is something that matters. But surprisingly enough the big bad guy is like Orly? "Ok come in because the owner is mexican". I still can't believe that argument worked. 

In London, we decided to go meet the fun side of the city, so we go happily to this place I forgot its name, outside there was this huge hefty bald hooligan. He stared at us when we wanted to go in, he bows a little (we are not exactly tall) without losing sight at us, he takes out his black glasses and tell us with a deep voice "Do you know... this is a gay bar right?" And then my friend is like "Uh yeah, I'm here for the guys, shes here for the girls" Then the big hefty bald hooligan now with a thin voice and waving his hand is like "Oh cool come in come in!". Its impressive how fast a person can change. 


Anyways from the previous post: What kind of music are you getting into lately? 

 I'm pretty much in a phase of rediscovering the 70's rock bands ^_^
