Culturise thyselves!!

Today I was hit in the face with reality: I'm old. No, seriously, I'm 24, but I'm already old. I needed to get to a doctor's appointment and the train wouldn't come, so I had to fly out of the train station and I hailed, what now is, the most expensive taxi ride I ever took... Why, you ask? Why did I have to get on a  taxi and not ride a bus? Because there was the most ridiculous traffic ever and I was already late.

We din't realy know why we had to come to a halt every other 10 meters....the taxi driver kept promising that past Pueyrredón Av it would be fine and we would speed up, but we never did. Why? I was wondering the exact same thing, until suddenly I vagely remembered hearing about a band that was playing at River Stadium tonight. So who was playing? JONAS BROTHERS.

Yes, readers, I amit it, I have heard the name before, as in I have heard those two words in a sentence... but I just couldn't think of a song I knew they played, or really even picture them in my mind. Judging from the isnanity vibe and screams coming in from River Stadium (2km away) there must be thousands of teenage girls who do know them. You would not believe their screams every 15 seconds or so, carried by the wind into my room.

So who are the? Are this generation's Hanson Brothers? Are they the next Back Street Boys?? I wish I had a 14 year-old reader to explain all this to me and make me feel like I'm not really that old just yet...

To hear more songs by Jonas Brothers (and realise it's not spelt "Jona's" like I thought at first) visit their Official Youtube Channel.

Oid mortales!

Yesterday was our National Anthem's day, and perhaps it doesn't seem like such a big story to post about... but it's our anthem and I love it! And I'm not just saying that 'cause I'm Argentine, it is really good.

On the video above it's being played at Plaza de Mayo, across from the Casa Rosada, by the Regimiento Patricios Military band, who I think are excellent!

Don't really know if this is much of a story at all... but we don't usually make a huge deal of our national symbols and I thought it was a good time to spread the sound!

Chanel N° 5

For all of you that just love perfum, enjoy a good romantic movie with Audrey Tautou, adore a good Billy Holliday song or simply lust for Chanel N° 5, here's the new film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

Have a great day daydreaming of train love affairs, gorgeous strangers and sleeping in trains (which I love!!) I can't seem to get enough of these, with Before Sunrise and all. For another great perfum ad click Miss Dior Chérie.

PS: It's totally worth it to click on the HD (High Deffinition) button if to see it in great quality.

The week started again

(There should've been a photo here but Blogger is being funny today)

I know, I know, I've been very bad these past few days and I've been away from the blog a bit too long, I guess I took Workers' Day too seriously... that and the fact that yesterday I had a French exam, and the schemming about the trip and all...

Anyway, all is well and I'm back in the blogosphere, trying to dish up something you'd love. So stick around for some cute stuff this week! (either that or my usual random thoughts)  :)

Have a great week!
