Yep, this is Salvador, Bahia, Brazil and I think it’s very funny to pick up English words and make them sound as-built in Portuguese (BR) language[1]. Of course I don’t agree with this and for this same reason the language these indians speak should not be considered Portuguese at all but Brazilian. However, that’s not […]

Bird On The Wire

in English — Like a bird on the wire, Like a drunk in a midnight choir I have tried in my way to be free. Like a worm on a hook, Like a knight from some old fashioned book I have saved all my ribbons for thee. If I, if I have been unkind, […]

Leonard Cohen in words…

If it be your will That I speak no more And my voice be still As it was before I will speak no more I shall abide until I am spoken for If it be your will

Are we there yet ?

Surely not for children if the target it’s to catch all the message. Shrek 2 would be better than Shrek 1 if that one were the 1 and this one were the 2… I explain: it’s always pretty hard to beat the originality, the surprise, the novelty brought by the first being of each […]
