Friday Feast 112

Why don’t you just come out and PLAY!

Measured in minutes or hours, how much exercise have you had in the last week?
This was a bad week, I think if you add all the situps and pushups I did, it will amount to a sorry 20 minutes.


If you had to change your blog title to something else, what would it be?
Ruler of the people of the hill.

Name one television show you watched when you were 9-12 years old.
Transformers, more than meets the eye… it is being said that a live action movie is coming out…

Main Course
If someone gave you $50 to spend with the one condition that it had to be educational, what would you purchase?
I can make just about anything educational, LOL. Ok mind back on track here. I say maybe a language course, I really would love to seriously start learning another language soon.

Do you tend to prefer dark colors, neutral shades, or lighter/pastel hues?
Not much for dark colors, I like both neutral and lighters shades of blue and green. Lately I have been getting more color into the wordrove, for a while I was a total gray addict.

La Camisa Negra – The Black Shirt – Juanes

La Camisa Negra – The Black Shirt – Lyrics Translation

Music & lyrics by Juan Esteban Aristizabal (Juanes)

Tengo la camisa negra
I have this black

hoy mi amor esta de luto
today my love is mourning

Hoy tengo en el alma una pena

I have a pain in my soul

y es por culpa de tu embrujo
and its all because of your spell

Hoy sé que tú ya no me quieres
Today I know that you don’t love me

y eso es lo que más me hiere
and that is what hurts the most

que tengo la camisa negra

that I have a black shirt on

y una pena que me duele

and this pain that is hurting me

mal parece que solo me quedé

it looks like I’ve ended up alone

y fue pura todita tu mentira
and everything was your lie

que maldita mala suerte la mía
what dam bad luck of mine

que aquel día te encontré
in the day that I found

por beber del veneno malevo de tu amor
to drink of that evil poison of your love

yo quedé moribundo y lleno de dolor
I was left dying and full of pain

respiré de ese humo amargo de tu adiós

I breathe in that bitter smoke of your goodbye

y desde que tú te fuiste yo solo tengo…
and since when you left I only have…

tengo la camisa negra
have this black shirt

porque negra tengo el alma

because black I have my soul

yo por ti perdí la calma
because of you I lost the calm

y casi pierdo hasta mi cama
and almost even lost my bed

cama cama caman baby

bed bed come on baby (play on words)

te digo con disimulo
I say to you carefully

que tengo la camisa negra
that I have the black shirt

y debajo tengo el difunto
and under I have the deceased

tengo la camisa negra

I have the black shirt

ya tu amor no me interesa

and your love does matter

lo que ayer me supo a gloria

what yesterday tasted like glory

hoy me sabe a pura
todays tastest like (play on words) (Mier..da is Shit, when he says Miercoles which is Wednesday he is insinuating something else)

miércoles por la tarde y tú que no llegas
Wednesday afternoon and you are not here

ni siquiera muestras señas
You don’t even show me signals

y yo con la camisa negra
and I still have the black shirt

y tus maletas en la puerta

and your bags at the door

Religion Quote

“When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion.”
-Abraham Lincoln

Religion, like politics, is a very touchy subject. When someone attacks your religion, if you have one, it feels like they personally attacking you. I have learned in life that the worse thing to do is to take things personally. I am still working towards that goal because I tend to take things personally when I should not.

I have often wondered if having a religion serves a real purpose beyond making us feel guilty. You could argue that it is just because I was brought up Catholic which is often regarded as a high guilt based faith. Doing right thing because doing the opposite makes you feel guilty is not effective. I know of plenty of people that sin and then repent themselves just to turn around and do it over and over again. I think Mr. Lincoln’s approach to religion however simplistic is very powerful. We should have our own code of ethics and know wrong from right; religion should be a tool that helps us but not our only guide.

The Pope is apologizing for the remarks that were taken out of context recently in a speech. His message was simple, that religion and violence don’t go together. Even though he did not mean to say that Islam promotes the killing of infidels (some extremist do), the reaction to his speech make a stronger case for Islam being used for hate rather than love.

There has been so much blood spilled on this earth in the name of religion that I would have hoped that the human race would have cleaned up its act and stopped killing each other over it. It seems like we as a race are doomed to kill each other. In the movie the matrix Agent Smith classifies us as a virus, a disease… but I am starting to thin he was wrong, because even a virus does not kill itself.

Chocoturd Fudgems

I hope I am not the only one that thinks, walking turd, when I see the comercial for Domino’s Pizza’s new Fudgems. The little guys even have their own website and I still wonder why I did not start a career in advertising. If someone can actually sell a whole campain where the mascot is a walking turd, I could have totally made some money. Seriously, who are they trying to reach here? the scat audience?

To add insult to injury, their latest commercial has a little girl hugging one of these choco-turds and ends up looking all fudged up (pun totally intended). I mean, if you want to sell a product, please don’t disgust me first. I dare you to watch the commercial and not think of poo. The whole campain is also in Spanish where the mascot is name Brownito, now if that is not the name of a turd, I don’t know what is.
