[Skate] Cody Mc Entire

There's something about Cody Mc, that's making him one of my favorite skaters. Smooth steezy style, great miniramp & street skills. His amazing expertise on the Big Spin, one of the most beatiful tricks when done nicely, his being so extremely modest. Here we go then!

Punk(or anything) will always be better than dubstep

  I'm pretty sure, that the blogging world disagrees with that. I am not a really huge punk fan myself, I dislike the whining vocals of punk-rock, and I also can't help but giggle at the punk lifestyle. I do realise though that there's a huge variety on punk, especially when it comes to different sub-genres (I enjoy some off them quite a lot, especially some bands that through their lyrics they do a highly political approach to society, and the world.) You might be asking yourselfs now: why did he choose this picture, title then? Well, I'm pretty sure this will provoke a nice conversation on the subject (there wasn't anything else on the internet anyway, I could have easily picked, classic or hip hop or anything), since I myself can't understand all this hype about dubstep.
Let's do it then! Why do you enjoy dubstep people?

[Books] On Heroes and Tombs (sobre heroes y tumbas) by Ernesto Sabato

About Ernesto Sabato(wikipedia):

Ernesto Sabato (June 24, 1911 – April 30, 2011), was an Argentine writer, painter and physicist. He was born in Rojas, a small town in Buenos Aires Province. Sabato began his studies at the Colegio Nacional de La Plata. He then studied physics at the Universidad Nacional de La Plata. He then studied physics at the Universidad Nacional de la  Plata, where he earned a Ph.D. He then attended the 
Sorbonne in Paris and worked at the Curie Institute. After WWII he lost faith in science and started writing. Sabato's oeuvre includes three novels: El Tunel  (1948), Sobre heroes y tumbas (1961) and Abaddon el extreminador (1974). The first of these received critical acclaim upon its publication from, among others, fellow writers Albert Camus and Thomas Mann.The second is regarded as his masterpiece, though he nearly burnt it like many of his other works.Sabato's essays cover topics as diverse as metaphysics, politics and tango.

About the book itself.

"in order to have a dark view of the world, you must first believe in it's bright potential"  
(roughly translated from Greek)
It's the story of a 19 years old boy(Martin) who falls in love with this far from normal girl. She seems to have almost mystical powers yet a family that represents all the values of the "old", pre-war and colonial Argentina.
So many emotions fly arround in this book. Alejandra the beatiful girl that Martin falls in love with, is this divine creature, noone can resist, yet she actually appears and disappears in an almost magical way, creating a veil arround her presence. She only stars having material form (that is all my interpretation and the result of my feelings while reading this book) after Martin gets to know her grandpa, a past-enthusiast with a lot of good memories from the war.

"Gruesome beaty. A delirium that makes Lautreamont pale out of jealousy"
La quinzaine Litteraire
"A masterpiece. One of the amazing phenomena of our times. One of the best novels of the century"
Die Welt 
"Magic, baroque, monumental, a Buñuel film on Dostoyefski's script"

Two dogs dining, hilarious

Haven't seen anything funnier for a loong time. Enjoy people :D
