AVISO: Dos discos de Ubuntu Linux a un costo simbólico.

AVISO: Terrible. Me han cobrado una fortuna por la importación de varios discos originales de Ubuntu Linux, lo cual me impedirá regalarlos esta vez. Sin embargo, por una modiquísima cantidad, estoy distribuyéndolos. Los discos son preciosos y no muchos tienen un par de discos de Linux originales (de instalador y para usar el sistema sin instalar, desde el CD). Escriban un e-mail para solicitarme estos discos, en la Ciudad de México.

So we unveiled MundoKino’s test site.

After days and months of decision taking and just few lines of code, comes the 100% renewed MundoKino ver. 2.0, which is now opened for tests with the community. The website is falling here and there but it is usable. Thanks to the great work of Kasper, Typo3 developer, and all the people that are making awesome contributions to the code.

Visit our little monster that is still that… a little monster we love so much even it doesn’t have new code…

RyanAir and long latinamerican names.

Well, this is an important remark related to RyanAir’s system of ticket acquisition.

Be aware that some Latinamerican compound names (with two lastnames), are not compatible with their online system which accepts a reduced number of characters at the time of the credit card data entry.

For some reason, certain cards are usually rejected.

Next time you consider Ryan’s great pricing and easyness, do some testing before, or buy with enough time forehand.

The films of Reine Mitri. (EN)

I was able to watch, for the first time the 2002 and 2004 films of Reine Mitri.

I am absolutely dazzled for many reasons. The first and less important, is that I was the only one at the Reggio di Calabria Festival of Film Societies who had not seen them all; therefore I was missing an important trait of brotherhood at the place.

But second (and mainly), due to the fact I was left speechless after this terrific doze of intimacy and outbursting depiction of community energies; a set of radical film essays about sweet and fierce inner thoughts that confront their surroundings. Invisible vexations?

One of the most amazing facts and factors that I should point, is how much energy could a DV film making device can bear at the right hands. I am not commenting much at this blog, specially because I am totally comitted to write something longer someday; but I will like to sketch a note about the film The sound of footsteps on the pavement:

contemporary revolutions not only in the middle east but at every transitional and non transitional economy, will be won by the ones behind the lenses, the sounds and the words. Thank you Ms. Mitri for this freshness and energy, bringing back life to the genre.

--- Watching Querido on board of a coaster train heading north, to Naples, was obviously impossible... landscape stole me two things: attention, and the steadiness to enjoy... two little tears this short film got from me... I watched them lots of times thereafter.

Requiem: Jef Raskin left this weekend...

Brightness inside this coldness.

Mexico City's weather is one of a kind. Today's radio forecasting babbled a plenty-of-sun-so-warm-day thing. "Plenty of sun" was a phrase connected to warm weather at this city, but no longer.

Today's sun resembled a northern dawn, full of curled winds and mild sun rays, intense indeed, but unfortunately mild; with no means of warming neither the morning dew nor my own ears...

Coldness inside brightness. A methaphor for the mythic work of Jef Raskin, who died this weekend. Who was Jef? I can't explain it briefly. But I feel we owe him something, somehow... when using our visual desktops...

Bienvenidos

Iniciamos las transmisiones desde la esfera donde los sonidos organizados, tienen preferencia.

Inauguro mi blog, apretado apócope anglo de web-log, que se usa como trinchera para plagar de comentarios, imágenes y formas de expresión, el ciberespacio. Página web, pero sin página web, es una manera de participar del fashion internetero, de sentirse in en el universo de formas contemporáneas de publicación. De ser rey editorial por unos minutos, y reportero del espectáculo que cada uno cree que es.

En general, los manutensores de un blog (les invito amigos a pronunciar esta palabra, siempre con violencia post-postmoderna... aquí otra vez para que practiquen: blog) creemos tener cosas que decir. Un blog es una forma de celebrarlo con quienes apoyan nuestra causa o con quienes nos dan por nuestro lado. A veces es una forma desafortunada de olvidar que en el mismo momento, hay cientos de gargantas, manos y sexos que están siendo silenciados en el mundo.
