Feliz 2010!

"Há um tempo em que é necessário abandonar as roupas usadas...
que já têm a forma do nosso corpo...
e esquecer os nossos caminhos que nos levam sempre aos mesmos lugares...

É o tempo da travessia...
e se não ousarmos fazê-la...
teremos ficado para sempre...
à margem de nós mesmos."

Fernando Pessoa


Espero que em 2010 todos os que me rodeiam (e eu mesmo) consigam dar um pouco mais de si... melhorar um pouco mais... ou pelo que tentem.

2010 será um ano "novo" e fantástico se não fizermos as coisas da mesma forma que as fazemos no presente... ou fizemos no passado... senão, nem fantástico, nem novo.

Feliz 2010!

Um Abraço Sonoro...

...à alma...

Georgia, Georgia,
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

I'm say Georgia
Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear
As moonlight through the pines

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

I said Georgia,
Ooh Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

Georgia,
Georgia,
No peace, no peace I find
Just this old, sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

I said just an old sweet song,
Keeps Georgia on my mind

I Can't Stop Loving You



(I can't stop loving you)
I've made up my mind
To live in memory of the lonesome times
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday
(Dreams of yesterday)
Those happy hours that we once knew
Tho' long ago, they still make me blue
They say that time heals a broken heart
But time has stood still since we've been apart

(I can't stop loving you)
I've made up my mind
To live in memories of the lonesome times
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday
(Those happy hours)
Those happy hours
(That we once knew)
That we once knew
(Tho' long ago)
Tho' long ago
(Still make me blue)
Still ma-a-a-ake me blue
(They say that time)
They say that time
(Heals a broken heart)
Heals a broken heart
(But time has stood still)
Time has stood still
(Since we've been apart)
Since we've been apart

(I can't stop loving you)
I said I made up my mind
To live in memory of the lonesome times
(Sing a song, children)
(I can't stop wanting you)
It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life of dreams of yesterday
(Of yesterday)

(Ray Charles - I Can't Stop Loving You)


Esta música traz-me conforto... aconchego... especialmente com o frio que por aqui anda...

...I miss that girl.




Little bird
Hoppin' on my porch
know it sounds kinda sad
But what's it all for?
Right now you're the only friend I have in the world
And I just can't take out very much
Goddamn
I miss that girl

Little bird
You look all right
I'm sure it's not easy
Gettin' through your night
So tell me this can't be how it's gonna end
Tell me my heart
Somehow
Dear God
Is gonna mend

Little bird
I guess you're right
Can't let her take me out
Without a fight
But right now I can't see making sense of this world
I just can't take out very much
Goddamn
I miss that girl

The Shore - Gentle Moon



Há quem diga que são uma mistura entre os Oasis e os The Vines... parecem-me um "bocadito" mais do que isso!

Parlamento, Armando Vara e condutores...

Definitivamente, entre Armando Vara e o Ministério Público (e Judiciária), prefiro acreditar no primeiro. É bem mais coerente! Na acusação há tanta coisa mal contada, que me fez lembrar logo o caso do Carlos Cruz.

Os debates no Parlamento, de há longa data que carecem de utilidade para o país e para a causa pública. A única coisa que se lá passa é a troca de galhardetes constante entre os deputados. Não me interessa se é com o 1.º Ministro ou o Paulo Portas... ou se há insultos pelo meio com Maria José Nogueira Pinto e Ricardo Gonçalves... tenho é pena que o ex-Ministro da Economia Manuel Pinho se tenha demitido (aquele gesto veio mesmo a calhar); o facto é que ali se discutem opiniões e afirmações pessoais e não ideias com utilidade pública. A afirmação pessoal está acima dos assuntos e das ideologias... As discussões sucedem-se com acento tónico nas pessoas e não nas ideias e é ridículo sair tanto dinheiro dos cofres do estado, para que alguns senhores que não têm colocação no mercado de trabalho empresarial estejam entretidos a massajarem o ego próprio.

Tenho vindo a reparar, que cada vez os condutores dos veículos ligeiros guiam pior e os dos pesados melhor. Os primeiros, vejo-os constantemente à minha frente com o pé no travão... mesmo que nada haja à sua frente. Continuam a travar já dentro das curvas, e consequentemente, a despistarem-se sem a mínima razão (claro que podemos sempre por a culpa na estrada...). Já os dos pesados, guiam de forma fluída, ultrapassam, voltam à sua faixa... nem me lembro de ir atrás de um pesado, com o pisca da esquerda ligado e dar-lhe máximos para que me deixe passar. Pelo contrário, com os condutores dos ligeiros é todos os dias! Até que perco a paciência e ultrapasso-os por uma das duas ou três faixas de rodagem livres à direita.

p.s.: Mas há alguém que acredite que o homem aceitou um suborno de 10.000€? Se ao menos fosse de 100.000€...

Joe Henry - Scared Me To Death



I've seen the best
And the worst you can be,
And all while you're getting
the better of me.
You're fragile but wicked
And fleeting as breath,
And you move up behind me
And scare me to death.
You're fragile but wicked
And fleeting as breath,
And you move up behind me
And scare me to death

At war between all good intentions
And greed,
My love is the kind
Where want becomes need.
Where lust takes the toll
Of a quick stolen breath,
You stir within me
And scare me to death.
Where lust takes the toll
Of a quick stolen breath,
You stir within me
And scare me to death

A dose now of either heart or of mind
Can be lethal, it seems, if they're not combined.
They show but contempt when consideredas two,
And pretend that each is the other to you...

Now, you spit in your hands
And haul on the rope.
And fill up my cup
With the worst kind of hope.
You lift me with words
I haven't found yet,
I fall like your shadow
And you scare me to death.
You sleep here beside me
And scare me to death.
You sleep here beside me
And you scare me to death.

Meiko - I Heard It All Before



I'm so tired of staring at the wall
But I know I got to put you down
And I keep trying to make sense of it all
But I can't keep going around and around
And you know me well
you know me better than this
And I can't be sure if you're something I'd miss

'Cause I've heard it all before
I've heard it all before

I keep finding a little piece of me
Every time we disagree
And your words float like dandelions every other way
I can't keep listening to what you say

'Cause I've heard it all before
I've heard it all before
And I take everything I can
And I'll throw it out the door

Yeah, I've heard it all before
I've heard it all before
And I take everything I can
But I've heard it all before

Sleeping at Last - Dreamlife



As our hearts lay sleeping,
As our bodies rest,
The Heavens open up for us.
Put down your weapon, child,
And close your eyes,
Because you and your enemies
Are innocent tonight.

I never wanted you,
I never wanted you to go.

There’s a voice inside your soul
That resonates through your skin and bone,
Up through the blades of grass,
Underneath the feet of God’s only son.
The war that you’re fighting
Has already been won.

I just want to survive with you by my side.
With you by my side, I just want to survive.

Crooked mouth, quiet down.
Let your fists come undone.
Miscarried love will be reborn.
When we sleep,
The devil’s arms are tied.

The war that we’re fighting
Has already been won…

I never wanted this,
I never wanted this to go away.
I never wanted this,
I never asked for it,
I never meant to let it go.

I just want to survive with you by my side.
With you by my side, I just want to survive.

Vast - Dedicate



People say that I loved you too much
Because I think about you now
And it's been two years
Images of you with him
Play again and again inside my head
I hope you fall
I hope you fail

If you ever loved me
If you ever knew me
You should know that I am gone
If you ever loved me
If you ever knew me
Dedicate a place for me

Thoughts of you
Flow into me like poison
No one can see
No one can feel
I'm too small
I'm too big
Too blind to see you're shining
Way over head
I hope you fall

If you ever loved me
If you ever knew me
You should know that I am gone
If you ever loved me
If you ever knew me
Dedicate a place for me

I'm gone and forgotten
I'm gone like I never existed at all

If you ever loved me
If you ever knew me
You should know that I am gone
Have you ever needed
Have you ever needed
Dedicate a place for me
Dedicate a place for me


(Dedicate - Vast, April - 2009)
