Here’s an excerpt:

What’s your impression of American pop music?[…]

[…]But often when I’ve turned on the radio here, I find it very beat-driven and repetitive, somewhat hypnotic, and that’s not up my alley.

She’s a good musician and performer. She’s got what to brag about, haha. Can’t wait for new material. :D

Brazilian electro-pop-funk group, CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy), is holding a music video contest with Italian QOOB.

Please, click on this link and register so you can vote for my video!! Well, the site is in Italian, and I know some people will be discourage to register, but you can still watch it through there.

If you still feel like letting me know your comment, and you have a YouTube account, click here.I also got myself a new CPU, from what I have seen so far – it’s at least 3 times faster than my laptop. LOL… I think almost anything can be faster than my laptop nowadays.

It’s been a busy week. I have been working on three different computers… and one of them was quite annoying because formatting sucks, especially if you’re an HP user. Windows sucks too, by the way. And the stupid Support Center, it’s pure rubbish.

Nothing else here, I think. That’s pretty much all. Working on music video, some printing and loads of formatting and installing and complaining.

Paparazzi, Paparazzi~

March 19, 2007 — 1 Comment

Why are they wrong? Why are they right?

In my humble opinion, both sides are not right. However, the paparazzi reasons are more sensible, than the silly “There’s something outrageous, illegal and immoral about all of that,” that Mr. Sunshine (haha, smile, Mr. Sunshine!) says in the following CNN articles.

Frank Griffin on defending.

Ken Sunshine on why they’re wrong.

I’ve already rant and rant about this same issue. Sometimes, yes, paparazzi get too far. Case and point, Natalie Portman in Argentina being pushed around, so they could get a clear shot of her face. Yeah, it blows. But agents should stop blaming the paparazzi, and start urging their clients’ fans to stop being interested in the damn things! Paparazzi are only doing their job, which has evolved from the insane interest people have on celebrities. I am even guilty of that! So I include myself in this insanity. However, I have stopped for a while now… so think about it.

If all the fans around the world stop looking at paparazzi pictures, there will be NO DEMAND on their pictures, making them FIND A NEW JOB TO PAY THE BILLS. This is no rocket science, nor the most effin’-taboulos new discovery.

So it all goes back to the people. Get it, Mr. Sunshine? It’s not the IMMORALITY of the paparazzi who hangs around the celebrity home, it’s the IMMORALITY of the fan who WANTS and CHOOSES to buy or search ANY of those images to mind YOUR CLIENTS’ businesses. But, hey! You live off of these fans who buy your clients’ products, watch your clients’ films, and listen to your clients’ music.

In the end, celebrities will either have to appeal to their fans’ good nature to leave them the EFF alone… or just effin’ accept this evolution of celebrity stalkers… and just give the paparazzi what your effin’ fans bloody want!

The Eyes Rant

March 10, 2007 — Leave a comment

I have been listening and re-listening to Marit Larsen’s album (*hint* you can still listen to some of the songs in the music player section) – I bought it almost a year ago, but for the last week I have been hearing 3 or 4 times a day. It just seems so short! It lasts no more than 40min, so when it ends, it leaves you wanting more :P

Anyway, *Amy goes to turn on her disc reader and listen to the CD* – Shoot, even talking about the album makes me wanna listen to it. OK, so I have been listening to it, and felt like doing a portrait of Marit. This is officially my 2nd portrait, and my 3rd digital painting, and my 4th digital artwork – and God! It’s so difficult, I wouldn’t even dare doing it for real with real painting and with real canvases. More power to the real painters out there~

After 13hrs, and maybe 15 plays of the CD, I came out with a pretty decent painting… but it’s always the EYE that screws me over. And I didn’t even have two eyes to screw over like my digital Sooz, which you can see on my DeviantART account. Anyway, here it is…

Bloody hell~

I tried to add really old entries from when I started blogging, but it’s really impossible. It’s effing retarded to see how I was blogging almost daily when I was 17, and I find it almost impossible now. Gosh~ So I just gave that idea up.

Since it’s been so long since I last really, really blog, this post might just turn up a little too long, but here goes~

I have been a Dixie Chicks’ fan since I first heard “Without You,’ back when Napster was still free, and I was merely a kiddo living in Lima, Peru. I had NEVER in my life been exposed to Country music, because it’s really not the type of music you hear in a country like mine, so we’d never get anything related to them or their music.

Recently, at a forum, I created a topic to discuss Country music, because I was so excited by the Dixie Chicks sweeping off the Grammy awards. Soon, the topic turned from Country music songs to a heated argument about the Dixie Chicks, so I have been wanting to rant about this.

PS: I think the Chicks will be so proud to create so much controversy in forums~ ;)

However, I must say that their music prior this whole thing was pretty great. Loads of fun to listen to, and lovely ballads.

You can’t take that away from them (hmm… mariah carey’s flashback)

I just saw the documentary “Shut Up & Sing,” which was pretty good… I was expecting more politics, but it was actually moving in bits of the film.

I am not American, but I do not condemn or praise what Natalie Maines said. Well, sure I don’t like Bush… I’m guilty of that, but to defend Natalie’s mistake, her comment wasn’t part of the act. They had just finished a song, and during that moment where they were preparing for the other, she wanted to express something that was bugging her, since the US was invading Irak THAT DAY. The Chicks were watching the news… and closely watching Internet news, when they had to go perform, so that kinda messes with your mind a little, and makes you voice your opinion easier than in other circumstances.

Totally opposite to what Tobey(sp?) Keith did insulting Natalie Maines – that was actually PART of his show, which then turned into that stupid kid’s game of insulting. But whatever~ FUTK, FUDC… but I must say I found Natalie hilarious. x’D

However, watching the documentary – you did see them taking advantage of it. At first, Natalie was all about not making a big deal out of it – and their manager was like “wouldn’t it be great if this and that happened?” – I think that was wrong, and the press didn’t wanna let it go either. If the press and republican groups hadn’t made a big deal out of it, nothing would’ve happened – and probably, the Dixie Chicks would’ve been left standing worse.

There’s no such thing as bad publicity. Any type of publicity is good publicity.

Now, I never saw the big deal with insulting Bush. Everyone does. Every political comic artist in the world pokes fun at every politician they know, because that’s what they do. Otherwise, they’d have no jobs.

Bush is as any other president, or any regular person in the planet. Respect should be earned for the things you do, not the title you wear. That’s my opinion…

After my post, the discussion turned to the definition of “freedom of speech” – And I must say that their arguments weren’t valid to me. Freedom of speech is not “saying whatever you like” – Freedom of speech is “giving your opinion about something.” Yelling “FIRE!” at a cinema does not count as part of Freedom of speech because it doesn’t state anything about anything. I rest my case.

In other crap things~ The Oscar was held a few days back. I guessed a few of them – and I loved the surprise for Alan Arkin =D I was really happy for him, even though I wanted Djimon Honsou to win. ^^ – I also loved “Happy Feet” kicking “Cars”‘ ass for Best Animated Feature. However… WTF – I know Jennifer Hudson was a shoo in for all the awards she’s been getting, but WHATEVER in HELL possessed people to give her an Oscar for playing a singer? It wasn’t much of a stretch now, wasn’t it? – Is Rinko Kikuchi a deaf-mute person? Is Adriana Barraza ever an illegal nanny in the States? – ah, I didn’t think so.

But, ok – whatever~ rant’s over~
