April Fools’, Fools of April or April of the Fools

Posted by admin on April 1, 2010 | No comments

YAY! Another year has come and yet another April 1st is here. Ever wondered what’s it all about this day ?

Wikipedia Say that April Fools’ Day or All Fools’ Day is a day celebrated in various countries on April 1.  Yeah right… and that’s just once a year ?

They tend to try to convince me that “The day is marked by the commission of hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, enemies, and neighbors, or sending them on a fool’s errand, the aim of which is to embarrass  the gullible. Traditionally, in some countries, such as the UK, Australia, and South Africa the jokes only last until noon, and someone who plays a trick after noon is called an “April Fool”.
Oh, come on!… have these guys ever heard of a late-afternoon-wake-up-after-a-long-exhausting-evening-full-of-fun ?

Isn’t April Fools just a great chance to tell the truth without insulting anybody? As someone posted to me today scientists have discovered that 60% of what you say consciously or subconsciously during the day is a lie. Well … we still have a good amount of 40% ..

And if we trust on the above text .. and the above figures it turns out that there’s nothing practical in the stupid jokes you try to tell to the  “family members, enemies, and neighbors, or sending them on a fool’s errand, the aim of which is to embarrass  the gullible.

And always remember that:

“The first of April is the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year.” -   Mark Twain

I wonder what would it be in the “extra” day of the leap year .. :)

Understanding of life

Gather 20 children, so different from the “normal” and at the same time so similar to them …
To see them laughing and the sparks in their eyes is worth it!
Why? The answer is simple: Because you want it!
Because these are the children who experience the happiness in it’s most sincere and true way.
This week I managed to be part of a project with a couple of friends of mine from our Rotaract club of Bourgas.
It was so depressing and at the same time heart warming event.

Our friends from the Red Cross helped us to gather together 20 kids in need. Our main idea was to gift to those children some happy moments for Easter (the orthodox Easter happens to be this week).

We had fun with the kids making them feel great!

It is funny how there are children who have everything and there are also children who have nothing. I wonder why people have to be so different and so similar at the same time…

Like you have everything and nothing at all at the same time…

Music all over the place

Posted by admin on March 31, 2010 | No comments

Hey yaaaaaaaaaaa,

i know it’s been a while since  i last wrote but a lot of things have been happening around me.

First of all i would like to share my deepest excitement about the bands that are going to visit Bulgaria this year.

As some of you might know the festival Spirit of Burgas, was quite an event for the Boring (with capital B) town Bourgas can be at times.

Last year’s performances on the sand of the beach in the wonderful black sea coast rocked the stage from dust till dawn.

Yeah, Faith No More had a rocking time with the audience but their performance wasn’t as good as the one of Fun Lovin’ Criminals or the PERFECT germans (as a friend of mine would say “Ja ja Gustav, macht es schneller”) from De Phazz.

In  general the performances were ok.  Then followed Madonna, MetallicA, Guano Apes (another kick-ass band from Germany).

As far as i heard Madonna was a very huge event… which was not unexpected. Come on, we all know that if there’s a star in this world that can make you not hear the way she’s singing, that would be Madonna.

Anyways… enough for last year…

What’s up for this year’s music events – just a few names:
1. Rammstein – i guess there isn’t a band in Bulgaria or throughout Europe in general (if not in the whole world) that can make such an impact with the audience as Rammstein do!

2. MetallicA – good “old” metal monsters. They will be visiting Bulgaria for the 3rd time and i’m sure they still have much more to show to us.

3. Heaven&Hell

4. Slayer ! YAY! A couple of friends from the UK will be coming especially for this gig!

5. Alice in Chains the only thing you can say about them is
Heaven beside you… Hell within
And you think you have it still, heaven inside you

6. Megadeth

The above six will be part of the Sonicsphere festival that’s going to happen in Sofia, Vasil Levski stadium on June 22 – June 23, 2010.

So Sofia, be prepared…

We are still all awaiting patiently for the names that will rock the stage of Spirit of Burgas (some of us already know them but promised not to tell this before the official announcement)… THEREFORE i’m just going to give you a small hint:

I’ve got sunshine in a bag, and I’m useless, but not for long, cuz my futures, comin on.

or this one

Change my pitch up…..Smack my bitch up

Anyways i didn’t really say who that is … i know the rest of the names as well but these i will hold for me until the end of This week.

Take care guys – hopefully i’ll write in the near future again :)

Harlem Gospel Choir in Bourgas

Posted by admin on November 15, 2009 | No comments

3 days ago i went to a concert i considered would be a nice-not-as-religious-as-it-was-experience. Honestly, i’m a little disappointed, Harlem Gospel Choir… it was ok, but it wasn’t what i exepcted. I am amused how “church” music can be so “disrespectful” to the audience that is listening to it.

The event was held in the Hall of the Burgas Opera and here are some photos from it:
Harlem Gospel Choir in the Opera Hall, Bourgas, Bulgaria Harlem Gospel Choir in the Opera Hall, Bourgas, Bulgaria Harlem Gospel Choir in the Opera Hall, Bourgas, Bulgaria
Harlem Gospel Choir in the Opera Hall, Bourgas, Bulgaria Harlem Gospel Choir in the Opera Hall, Bourgas, Bulgaria Harlem Gospel Choir in the Opera Hall, Bourgas, Bulgaria

Hey, i don’t mind them, this is a choir very popular and maybe very commercial with their performances with Michael Jackson, but i think they could be much much much better. And it sounds to me pretty unserious to praise God in such a commercial way… no offense to their audience and fans – this is just my opinion. My understanding of church music is this of the Sofia Boys Choir:

or this of the Angelite Choir…

and not

What amused me was that in one of the songs they performed they started to sing parts of  “Sex Machine by James Brown“… WTF ?! This is a church choir, god damned!

A gift I didn’t ask for …

Posted by admin on November 15, 2009 | No comments

I just got a new and rather unexpected gift… a book. Some of you might say this is not something as strange as it seems to me, but having the fact that i haven’t had the chance to read papper books lately this is an event..

The book’s called “Tractate for the hangover” (originally “Tratado Sombre la Resaca”). Funny, huh ?! The author is Juan Bas. Actually, this book seems to be one of those books which you read for 1 night.

Cubierta Tratado sobre la resaca 1traktat-za-mahmurluka-huan-bas

Girls, look what i found out – i just randomly opened the book on a page and i can read the comparison between how women and men assimilate alchohol.

Sex. Women assimilate alchohol worse then men. They get drunk faster and in general suffer more from hangover. Their liver produces less of the dehydrogenazys enzym and their bodies contain less water. From the liquors the best thing for women to drink is… beer.

Actually, it seems like this is the only advantage that men have in the whole hangovering-story theme.

That’s it from me today.. Happy hangovering :)
