Life is Good

I saw her in concert and then at the Gammy Awards.  :)

She sang this one in the concert, one of my favorites...

Ti vorrei sollevare - Elisa

I'm in love with her voice and spirit.

White Marsh, Maryland

Handcuffed and Punished

I was bad.

Things that would suck (my biggest fears in life)

Things that would suck (my biggest fears in life):

Having a fatal car accident involving my slow death while music I don't like is blaring on the car radio and I can't shut it off because I can't move. This is one of my greatest fears, so I am very picky about what I'm willing to listen to while driving.

Knowing that an asteroid is about to hit the Earth and finding myself with a terrible migraine headache when I should be taking it all in.

Listening to people scream as the airplane I'm on is crashing. Can't they just shut the fuck up and let me focus?

Latin Grammy Awards, 2015

I had the pleasure of attending the Latin Grammy Awards last night.  It was a blast.  One of my favorite singers, Natalia Lafourade, won a Grammy.  I had the pleasure of seeing her perform at the Hard Rock Live the night before.

I took some pictures.  Photography equipment was prohibited, so I had to sneak some photos with my shitty smartphone.  With the lighting and the poor camera quality, I only took a few.

So, here I am just inside the building.

Going to the entrances to the venue and waiting until a commercial break to be let inside...

Above, eye candy...

Below, some pictures of the venue...

The stages..

On Terrorism: It's not Islam, it's memetic-cancer...

Psychopaths engage in terrorism. Psychopaths are found among the religious and the non-religious.  Ideologies mobilize psychopaths to commit atrocities.  You can think of these psychopaths as the anti-bodies of the ideology.  Some believers in an ideology are like farmers, they sow seeds and create more believers.  Some believers in an ideology are like spores and stamens, they cause an ideology to manifest in different ways through the merger and cross-productization of concepts within an ideology.  Some believers in ideologies are creative and they mutate the ideology, causing it to explore new possibilities.  Some followers pass on these mutations, some leave the ideology.  Those mutations that are passed on, win the competition and evolution of the ideology takes place.  The anti-bodies attack outside ideas and police the ideas inside, trying to weed out the mutations.  From time time, a mutation gets out of hand and cannot be stopped by the anti-bodies and becomes a cancer.  This cancer is fundamentalism.
