89% brazilian in bed

So I’m 89% brazilian in bed! This is what the amazing KY site had to say about me:

‘Your bedroom powers are legendary!

Your lovemaking technique is an extension of the samba; sensual, athletic, rhythmic, full of meaning and like the samba it keeps going until daylight or until the neighbours call the police. Give yourself a pat on the back, but be careful, you’re liable to give yourself an orgasm.’

What’s your national sexuality in bed? Are you british in bed?



Another TDK review

This is a review from a friend at the West Ham Forum about ‘The Dark Knight’:

‘YOU’RE F*CKING BATMAN YOU DOZY FANCY DRESSED PR*CK. THIS ISN’T BERTRAND RUSSELL OR SIGMUND FREUD, IT’S A CARTOON CHARACTER WHO FIGHTS THE BADDIES. SNAP OUT OF YOUR SELF OBSESSED FAGGOTTY MELODRAMATIC LITTLE HISSY FIT AND JUST KICK THE F*CKERS UP THE HOLE. AND BY THE WAY, WE COULD DO WITHOUT A LOVE CONNECTION AS WELL. HOLY F*CKING MID LIFE CRISIS ON A STICK, BUT YOU ARE SOME WHINGING LITTLE F*CK.’

I for one think it’s a brilliant, absolutely brilliant film. But this take on it is just fucking priceless.

After a year’s hiatus, I’ve returned. Triumphant and well, decided to keep up an enligh-based blog now, alonge with my portuguese-based one.

To start off, a little quote from Tommy Cooper:

“Apparently, 1 in 5 people in the world are Chinese. And there are 5 people in my family, so it must be one of them. It’s either my mum or my dad. Or my older brother Colin. Or my younger brother Ho-Cha-Chu. But I think it’s Colin.”

See you around.

News on the trip front…

Since I’m arriving in NY at 18h, there will be enough time to head to the Bowery’s Whitehouse Hotel (340 Bowery), get to the nearest Cingular Wireless store to get my GoPhone and then head to Madison Square Garden to meet a friend and see if I can get a ticket to see The White Stripes. I don’t even like them, but hey, I’ll be there for everything the city can offer.

I have a plan. To watch one concert per night. And I have a cunning way to cheat that. I’m going to the Virgin Festival in Baltimore. I’ll get the chance to watch The Police, Incubus, Smashing Pumpkins… fricking amazing. And that’s how I can easily say I watched more bands than I had days in America. I’m smart like that.

Here’s the map of the whole trip… or my plans anyway…

More cities have been added. I’m going to see Dave Matthews in Hatford as well as heading to Baltimore for the festival. And I’m also going to Hoover Dam, since it’s on the way to the Grand Canyon – or so I’m told. It’ll be nice to get lost in the Nevada desert.

I also plan to visit Yosemite – dunno if at the beginning of my West Coast journey (the 20th of august) or at the end, by the 4th, 5th of september… I’m thinking that it’s best to get it over with when I first arrive. I’ll kill myself if I miss it.

Here’s the road trip in it’s fullness (and order… if I can manage keeping the order when I get there): New York, Hartford, Boston, Baltimore, New York, Washington, Philly, New York, San Fran, Yosemite, Las Vegas, Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, San Diego, Laguna Beach (I’ll try to kill the people from the show… really will), Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Malibu, Thousand Oaks, Santa Barbara, maybe Fresno and Sequoia National Park, San Jose, San Fran, Miami

I really want to take Highway One all the way when I’m in California… can’t tell now if I’ll have the time or the patience… I hope I have both.

Well, that’s about it. If anyone dares read all this crap, and has an opinion to make about the trip (like places to visit, people to see, things to do, that sorta thing), you’re more than welcome. I’m afraid to look at the sitemeter stats on this thing, so I can only imagine there are zero persons reading this. Prove me wrong, people!

I’ll start posting more from now on.

I’m a’ going on a road trip.

On the 24th of this month it’s the Big Apple. Staying there for a few weeks, and in the meantime I’ll visit Philly, Washington, Boston and Atlantic City. In the middle of August, San Fran to meet up with a great friend and his new offspring. Then I’ll head off to Las Vegas for some much needed poker and the sight of the Grand Canyon before I make my way to San Diego and drive up the coast back to San Fran, returning on the 5th of September to this hellish yet exquisite Rio de Janeiro.

I’ve never been to the West Coast. Getting there in the summer makes it that much sweeter. I can picture the wind gusting as I drive my rental with the top down up Santa Monica, where all ’em purty ladies sunbathe their way into gorgeous melanomas.

Las Vegas will hold the most surprises, I think. The lights, the people, the shows. Penn & Teller is a must. Bullshit at it’s best. I’m going to try my luck in the Hold ‘Em tables. Imagine if I come out with my trip’s expenses. That’ll be the golliest of days.

Damn me for having just watched ‘Walk the Line’. I’m all southern all of a sudden. That kinda rhimed. Not really, but still.
