pieces of me (@ the moment) on music lyrics.

I wanna be a plane, I am a red balloon, I'll never be the sameAnd I'm gone, gone, gone on the wind/ Leave my wings behind me,Drink my worries down the drain And fly away to somewhere new/We sit calmly and quiet alone and in love waiting and counting the days/ Late at night we dream aloud/ But now I'm intoLike a clock/ Carolize understand turn it up christmas jam/ I've closed my eyes and thought of us /cuando simplemente me mojaba...Ringo ya afinaba el tambor de Let It Be mientras todo esto se esfumaba... /I wish that I could flyInto the skySo very highJust like a dragonflyI'd fly above the treesOver the seas in all degreesTo anywhere I please/Oh I want to get awayI want to fly away/I'll just end up walkin'In the cold November rain/A primitive love A room at the Heart... The Heartbreak Hotel /Carolize understand turn it up christmas Jam/Can't you feel the town exploding/ Do you hear my Van Gogh's cry?/Como me duele la ausencia, Como me duele el invierno/ Storms of Northern windsEternal screams of twilight hope Enchanted apparition seek eternal life/ My bed's too big without you/Oh It's you I want you...

The dark side of the moon...

Me considero plenamente una persona de la noche, del lado oscuro de la
luna, de la sombra de las estrellas, de los último rayos de sol al atardecer que
le abren la función a los azúles y negros de las noches de invierno, noches
frías, largas... noches con lunas inolvidables.
La mágia de la noche me atrae de una forma muy particular. La noche me
activa, el reflejo de la luna en el agua me deja sin palabras. La neblina,
el misterio de un amanecer cercano y los besos que trae la luna hacen que viva
en la oscuridad y que mi mente viaje a velocidades increíbles hacia un alma
maravillosa, a silly soul.


Una vez me dijo la noche que el silencio otorgaba razones para morir en el apagar de las luces. Una vez me dijo la noche que la lluvia no iluminaba el camino de oscuridad que encerraba. Una vez me dijo la noche que el amanecer significa muerte y que el susurrar del viento eran los lamentos de los árboles. Una vez me dijo la luna que las razones por las cuales iluminaba la oscuridad eran las mismas por las cuales desaparecía el amanecer. Una vez dijo la noche que no esperara a la luna porque había muerto en un grito de dolor. Una vez me dijo una estrella que muriera en el silencio de una noche sin ahogo.


"I wanna see it painted, painted blackBlack as night, black as coal I wanna see
the sun blotted out from the sky I wanna see it painted, painted, painted,
painted black Yeah!" (The Rolling Stones)

Now playing: If The River was (Taj Mahal & Ry Cooder) Best served with: a beautiful view of the moon, our moon and red red wine.

And the nominees are...

Okay ladies and gentleman, finally, the European Music Awards!
And this year mtv is going italiano! Roma 2004, seems to be a great place, location and host for the event.
Have a look at the nominees and take your pic. For you Hispanics you can vote here, for you Dutch uhmm unfortunately the Dutch mtv site won't allow me to enter the ema's site... You might wanna try these days, you never know, it might work from a day to another. Otherwise you can vote sending text messages from your cell phone. But I truly recommend the web.
Okay folks this is it..These are the nominees for the European Music Awards 2004:
Best Group:
  • Beastie Boys
  • Black Eyed Peas
  • D12
  • Maroon 5
  • Outkast

My pic: definitely,Maroon 5, this guys really know how to get the funk with lovely lyrics and amazing sounds. They were awesome live!

Best Female:

  • Alicia Keys
  • Anastacia
  • Avril Lavigne
  • Beyonce
  • Britney Spears

My Pic: after wondering between Alicia and Anastacia, I chose the Soul, pop & funk new diva. Anastacia. She's got a great "black" voice, she's extremely kind, rocked the hole Amsterdam Arena with "Play that funky music white boy.." And loves Holland! Yeah Holland 1- Germany 0!

Best Male:

  • Jay Z
  • Justin Timberlake
  • Nelly
  • Robbie Williams
  • Usher

My Pic: "Let Love Be Your Energy" that says it all. Robbie knows how to entertain me, that's for sure. He is gonna kick this other guys' asses, count on it!

Best New Act:

  • Franz Ferdinand
  • Jamelia
  • Keane
  • Maroon 5
  • The Rasmus

My Pic: Keane and Maroon 5 are surely my favorites, and they both have done an amazing work this last year. But lovely lyrics, melancholy voice and terrific piano chords go over romantic and irrelevant guitar chords. Keane takes the price... Maroon 5 is not that new either.

Best Alternative:

  • Björk
  • Franz Ferdinand
  • Muse
  • Prodigy
  • The Hives

My Pic: uhmm... me, being a huge fan of alternative, bohemian music, this has become a really tuff choise. Eventhough Franz Ferdinand and Prodigy have great songs and their music fills up the ambiance with alternative sounds, I'll go for the mistic sounds, motioness and meaningful lyrics of Björk.

Best Rock:

  • Good Charlotte
  • Green Day
  • Linkin Park
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • The Darkness

My Pic: "Fly away on my Zephyr, I feel it more than ever...and in this perfect weather we'll find a place together flying on my Zephyr, we're gonna live forever" The californication guys still rock my afternoons. RHCP take out terrific guitar, bass and drums effects.. All at once or with their own solo.

Best Pop:

  • Anastacia
  • Avril Lavigne
  • Black Eyed Peas
  • Britney Spears
  • Robbie Williams

My Pic: Black Eyed Peas we absolutely awesome in Barcelona, their lyrics are pieces of my secret little mind, But "something beautiful will come your way" is everything I gotta say.... I'm just loving angels instead (right now I'm truly loving an angel) and I just wanna rock dj. Robbie takes my breath away, somehow his songs belong to my daily coffee cups and guitar strings.

Best Hip-Hop:

  • Beastie Boys
  • D12
  • Jay Z
  • Kanye West
  • Nelly

My Pic: Best hip-hop around. Beastie Boys conquered!

Best Album:

  • Beyonce- Dangerously In Love
  • Black Eyed Peas- Elephunk
  • Dido- Life For Rent
  • Outkast- Speaker Boxxx/ The Love Below
  • Usher- Confessions

My Pic: this choise is between Dido and her white flag, and Outkast and their shake it like a polaroid picture. Outkast is great! their videos are hilarious, lyrics could be perfection, this guys are having the time of their life. But my romatic side wins the battle. Red wine, chimeney, full moon and some songs from this British woman... Amazing evening. My vote goes to Dido and her life for Rent.

Best R&B:

  • Alicia Keys
  • Beyonce
  • Kelis
  • Outkast
  • Usher

My Pic: uhmm ... No milkshake or confessions for me. Alicia knows how to work that piano, but Outkast and their iced cold business did the right work. Outkast takes it from here.

Best Song:

  • Anastacia- Left outside alone
  • Britney Spears
  • Maroon 5- This Love
  • Outkast- Hey ya
  • Usher- Yeah

My Pic: "I'll fix these broken things Repair your broken wings And make sure everything alright My pressure on your hips Sinking my fingertips Into every inch of you Cause I know that's what you want me to do....This love has taken its toll on me She said Goodbye too many times before And my heart is breaking in front of me She said Goodbye too many times before"

This is it guys. Vote now, before it's too late. Leave a comment and let me know what your choises are and who is your favorite! Thanks a lot. Enjoy the Show. Arrivederci!

Una imágen vale más que mil palabras...

This picture was taken behind some old trees, next to a rode... At an autumn's afternoon... I really love the old cream color at the background, it's kind of friendly and it gives it a warm environment that at the same time has a huge contrast with the cold atmosphere of the trees...
The street light gives it an urban soul which gives it a piece of my urban lifestyle and the trees give the country side I'm leaving in right now.
The 2 different kinds of trees make it even more exotic to look at...
And the white skyline, that little line of hope between heaven and earth,
that looks like a falling star but it's in fact just an airplane leaving some stuff behind...It's like a piece of wisdom in the darkness... A track of a wish that came true..And it's just getting started...
Picture taken by Laura B.

Now playing: Wish you were here- (Pink Floyd)
