Beauty is a mystery to me. Like most people I am drawn to it, and like most ugly people I think I am over sensitive to ugliness. I do not speak of that beauty that is relative to time and culture, but a certain trend that seems to be pervasive to living creatures, that is … Continue reading The Fox and The Grapes
Last Wednesday I witnessed something that has become an all too frequent kind of armed robbery in Rio: a road dragnet. Four individuals blocked an access to a road (they do it on streets also) and armed with assault rifles robbed the occupants of two vehicles and stole a car. I might have added to … Continue reading Ad absurdum
No religion brings peace, neither does the lack of religion. Peace is unnatural to men, the same as it is absent to nature. What is peace, by the way? The strife of the pack to survive? The hunter and the prey. The hurricanes and hail storms, the earthquakes and droughts, the volcanoes and tectonic plaques … Continue reading Snippets 4 : There is no peace.

I have no sympathy for the porn industry. No, I don´t, the so called adult entertainment strikes me as human misery. It is a community of pimps, pervs and prostitutes, and I am not sorry about my opinion. Netflix, Google, Amazon, Facebook are evil corporations, you click on one thing, and they will use it … Continue reading Pornocracy: the whinning of exploiters.
I have never been a fan of porn movies, but it is impossible to be 47 y-o, have male friends and never have heard of Rocco Siffredi, the man of legendary size. The strange thing is I have never actually watched any of his movies, saw any picture of him, so I know him only … Continue reading Rocco, or a documentary on nothing.
