When life gets you down

You stop and curse. Yeah, that’s what you do. You curse at 3rd persons, you curse at yourself… mainly because of stupid mistakes, and appeal to the better nature of Peruvians. Because, really, in times like this, they SUCK. Continue Reading…

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.

Traducción de un artículo “Sexiness a must for today’s lady singers” por Nekesa Mumbi Moody. (link aquí)

Ella fue un “gran talento,” una joven cantante con maravillosa voz que escribió bellas canciones. Pero no era una belleza, además era plana y tenía sobrepeso para empeorar las cosas.

Recordando a la estrella aspirante, la ejecutiva musical, Jody Gerson sigue sintiéndose terrible de pensar: “Nunca encontrará disquera, a pesar de ser fabulosa.”

Gerson podrá sentirse aún peor después de la salida de la noche del miércoles de Melinda Doolittle de “American Idol.” En la industria musical de hoy, las chicas del montón no necesitan presentarse. Sex appeal fue una vez considerado un bonus en una mujer, ahora es prácticamente un requerimiento.
