A freaking earthquake

August 15, 2007 — 1 Comment

Dude, just about 1hr after the earthquake hit Lima.

I was sitting in front of my computer, and all my screen started shaking like hell. I thought for a second that would be just it, but it didn’t, so I opened the door. My mother was coming for me, and things started shaking even harder. It was horrible.

Reports say that it was 7.5 and some other said there have been two… one of 7.5 and another of 7.7 – let me tell you, it’s the first time I feel one like this. Never in my life I have seen things shaking like it did.

There has been already a Tsunami warning, hopefully it’ll never make it in here.

More updates later…


La Molina’s got a few electric failures, rocks are falling down Costa Verde, broken glasses and windows in Miraflores…water has been shaky in Chorrillos. And reporters are being really shaky.

The tsunami should be around here at the earliest 2am… if it ever comes. Watch out.

Buildings in Chincha have collapsed, including a wall in a prison there. The province of Ica has suffered the death of a few dozen people, as well as people robbing places. In Callao, some buildings have collapsed as well, but at least the tsunami warning has been canceled, so some are already returning to their homes.

There has been already a few aftershocks already, at least some movements every 20 or 15min. almost not noticeable. In Lima, the phone lines have been failing, but internet connection seems more than fine.

This is the time when the earthquake hit, and the last song my player played… California Dreamin’ by The Mamas and the Papas.

Found the Silver Sea!

August 13, 2007 — 3 Comments

I have finally found the Silver Sea album by Méav Ní Mhaolchatha, after extensive searching and waiting. I will share for a limited time only, if you’re interested, be sure to leave a message in this post.

The album has 13 songs of pretty awesome vocals. Meav’s got one of the most delightful voices I’ve heard in a long time, it really is a pleasure to just listen to her. Many of the tracks are slow to mid-tempo songs that really showcase her vocals, but most of my favorite ones are beat-driven tracks like The Wicked Sister, and The Dark-Haired Girl.

Some other highlights are Morning in Béarra – that, if I’m not mistaken, sounds like She Moved Thru the Fair, – A Maid in Bedlam, and Youkali Tango – a sexy-sounding Tango in French. Song lyrics and translations found at Here’s the tracklist:

  1. You Brough Me Up
  2. The Wicked Sister
  3. Morning in Béarra
  4. Full Fathom Five
  5. The Waves of Tory
  6. A Maid in Bedlam
  7. The Cradles
  8. Newry Boat-song
  9. Martha’s Harbour
  10. The Dark-Haired Girl
  11. Port Na Bpucaí
  12. Silent O Moyle
  13. Youkali Tango
