I am sure you didn’t realize but this has been the most prolonged interruption in the history of this blog. Six days without posting! And now a trip to Spain is coming up to be in La Red Innova and the Menorca Techtalk, because of that I am going to continue on a slower pace, it seems…
A little because of excessive work and travel, and a little because of the flu (the old and dear “seasonal flu”!), a little for blogging wear out. The matter is that I have been kind of unmotivated to write. The first Saturday of this month was a long one for me and when I thought about what I was going to start writing about again, music came to my rescue.
When the mood hits us, when “shit happens“, music is ideal to put things in perspective for us. Years ago, there was a song “Don’t worry: be happy” that was synonymous for not worrying too much about things. I never liked that. It seemed dumb to me. But here I will share with you a song I listen to when I need to get out of a bad mood.
It’s the song that closes one of my favorite films, the one that a friend Francis Petty mentioned in his comment about on the posts on negotiation…. And is great because of its lyrics, especially in the context the film uses it for. The film is by a group of good-humored Brits called Monty Python and is titled “The Life of Brian“. It is the story of Jesus Christ and how many biblical things happened in a very comical tone. Brian’s end, obviously, is on the cross. Here is the video with subtitles. I don’t like the translation that much. but it is what is is..
