Heaven’s gonna burn your eyes…


Si esta no es música para pegarse viajes, que venga dios y lo vea.



HOLY SHIT, STOP PRESS: RICKY MARTIN SAYS HE’s GAY! Mmh…. No, actually, forget it, don’t stop the press. Everyone knew anyway.

Men who stare at goats

From non-belligerence to neutrality – II


Total, que por primera vez en mi vida he estado en Ginebra. Vamos a empezar por la conclusión: admito que después de ver los en su hábitat natural, he perdido un poco de los prejuicios que tenía contra los suizos. (De ahí el título de este post). Además, a mí me cuesta enfadarme con la […]
