Officially Dead

If there’s anyone following my posts on this blog, I’m coming here today to announce that this blog is officially dead. It’s not that I won’t be posting anymore. It’s just that, once again, I’m moving to another blog. Furthermore, this isn’t the last post in this blog. The last will contain the new address of my new blog :)

So, stay tunned to the new announcement that hopefully I’ll be posting soon.

Os Mutantes

Yes, for those who know they, I’m talking about music once again.

My last addiction so far. Psychedelic music (brazilian psychedelic one, I mean). Os Mutantes represent nicely this genre. I advice Tecnicolor for it being sung in English (almost all songs).

Infinite Looping?

I know that is not true. One day I’ll stop hearing this song, even if that day is the day I die, or became deaf, or else.

I am talking about Dancing Behind My Eyelids, from múm. Just hear for yourself (this is a fan video, so focus on the song):

Well, my last.fm profile says that I listened to such song 120 times (by the time of this writing).This happened onlylast week, and i think this number will jump to about 200 or so.

It’s a dumb music indeed with dumb lyrics, but I like it anyway.

Random thought #2

Maybe I’m the strongest person I’ve ever “met”. So much thoughts running through my mind. What I’ve been through so far (The Simpsons Movie anyone?) mixed with mental condition (in a matter of physical and emotional states).

Fortunately, I’m not that much susceptible to what others say. However, it’s kinda obvious  (at least for me) that I tend to act different when people can convince me that their point is correct. Definitely not that much with regard to what others do. For an example, drug addiction could easily be part of my life (fortunately it is not). This just reminds me that having a minimum of intelligence is a bless.

Random thoughts?

Almost everyone I know like to have their moment of “random thoughts”. I have it all the time. My mind is quite active, must I say (kind of Britannic, wow). When I started using Twitter, my first though was: wow, here I can place some of my random thoughts. However, recently I realized that I am spending more time twittering than blogging and since my blog sort of represent my thoughts, so I decided to write them here.

Through the post title you’re gonna notice: “Random thought #n”, where n is the number, duh! I’ve a cache of four, already written and just waiting to be “released”. Since almost no one reads this blog, my plan is to release them every two days. But this is just a plan, and will mostly depend on my mood, which is highly inconstant.

It’s all about priorities

Caught myself thinking about how people often complain with regard to their free time. I remember a talk with a friend of mine where I said I like to read books, but I hadn’t  money to buy them. She instantaneously said that it was not a matter of money, but priorities. She explained that my priorities were hang out with friends, drinking, partying, instead of saving money to buy those books. From that day on I changed some of my priorities. I’d rather hang out with friends than buying books, but since solely hang out doesn’t cost me a lot of money, I’m currently buying my books!

Instead of money, someone could apply the same idea to time. People do have time to try different things, change routine, or simply do things they like. Changing priorities is not an easy task, neither cheap. One must be aware of the inherent consequences. Well, mine I can stand them well. In fact they’re not bad consequences, but ranging from manageable to good ones.

By the way,  so long no bloggin ’round here! At least I’m aware that I can’t complain about time, but I do can about my heap sort.

What a great coincidence!

Just when I start to listen to some Sigur Rós songs, QC publishes a strip containing a portrait with it. Awesome coincidence.

For this new year

Yeap, it’s 2008 already.

This year I’ll attend a master degree program at Center of Informatics. In the ranking of people accepted, I’m the 10th :D

And I’m trying to reach some goals until the end of that course. One of them is to learn German. Another is learn how to package thing for autotools and Ubuntu.

With no further sayings, have a great 2008! :)

Not late for work. Not today.

In my way to work, I faced the metro stuck. No the metro, but the buses on Barro Station were stopped from entering or leaving the station. Street vendors were impelled from selling things on station, so they have just made barriers on each station entrance. But at least I got work not so late (15min) and I won’t lose my whole day.
