Justicia para todos

31 Jul

El crimen de la investigadora que fue secuestrada y asesinada esta semana, ya ayer Viernes estaba por resolverse, tenían ya capturado a uno de los secuestradores y en vídeo su confesión.

A todos, en mayor o menor proporción, nos queda la duda de si los tipos señalados como culpables verdaderamente lo son o simplemente vemos un caso mas del tradicional e histórico chivo expiatorio, pero, a mi me queda otra inquietud, si bien la señora era productiva para la sociedad, ante la ley todos somos iguales.

Para la ley no debe haber personas mas valiosas, pérdidas humanas mas importantes, prioridades entre los casos, crímenes más reprobables que otros, claro, separando
la violación infantil o explotación sexual de niños.

Sin embargo, en este caso se investigo y se esta llegando prontamente a las ultimas consecuencias, pero, yo no estoy indignada solamente por el caso de esta mujer que no tenia ninguna razón para verse secuetrada y que se le privara de la vida, la señora, al igual que todos los seres humanos, tenemos derecho a la libertad y a que se respete nuestra integridad física, nuestra vida, pero lo indignante no fue que la secuestraran y asesinaran solo a ella, es igualmente terrible que la población entera este corriendo ese riesgo innecesario solo porque las autoridades correspondientes están recibiendo un sueldo por NO hacer su tarabajo.

Si, que se resuelva ese crimen, que se resuelvan TODOS los que suceden a diario en TODO el país y que, crímenes así JAMAS vuelvan a suceder, esa es MI exigencia.

Semanas más semanas menos el programa “El ojo del Huracan en su nueva temporada” ya tiene linea.

El programa que comenzó como de corte periodístico de espectáculos, sin censura, sin azúcar ni apapachos ahora va que vuela a consolidarse como un buen programa noventero de chismes gringo: Sin escrúpulos, escandaloso, morboso, mal hecho, dañino y sin una gota de justificación o fundamento.
La semana pasada (ó ¿antepasada?) fue el caso Vieth-Soberón, vídeos porno muy a la Paris Hilton con la diferencia de que Michelle es pobre, feíta y que el sexo no lo tenia ante la cámara con su novio u esposo sino con amantes.

El espectáculo fue pobre, llevar al hombre engañado a sentarse a ver los vídeos de su esposa, en vivo para grabar cuadro por cuadro como se le quitaba la sonrisa del rostro y le corrían las lágrimas por las mejillas, y debo aclarar, yo no vi el programa, y así de obvio lo encuentro.
Viene la escena del desmayo, todo en el estudio de televisión, la “reportera” nunca deja su papel y la “paramedica” quien casualmente pasaba por el estudio no acierta ni a preguntar “como se siente/se siente mareado/que le duele”, entra, hace lo suyo y se va.
Está semana le toca el turno a una edición sobre una mujer embarazada que, hace 10 años estuvo casada con un tipo y que hace unos 4 comenzó una relación con un hombre casado, que ahora es su pareja y ya esta divorciado.

Y entonces yo insisto, ¿Cómo para que?.

El misterio del Martuchazo

17 Jul

Vamos a ponerlo simple (México), en el la edición del lunes pasado de “Primer Plano” (sí, mis compromisos personales me atrasaron) se discutió el tema de lo saludable que era que Marta Sahagún al fin hubiera declinado ser la candidata a la presidencia de la república sucediendo así a su recién adquirido marido el ya entonces presidente Fox.

Se hablaba de que a la mujer se le había tratado con misoginia en comentarios con respecto a que no respetaba a su marido como buena mujer sometida, yo mas bien opino todo lo contrario, la señora se valió de su condición femenina para armar el mitote y salir bien librada, que si Santiago Creel, por ejemplo, se hubiera montado en su macho hace mucho que ya hasta fuera del país estuviera deportado por anti-demócrata.

La señora, al igual que Carlota, salió bien librada de todo precisamente por ser mujer, nadie en este país se atreve a atacarla de frente para evitar ser llamado machista, cerdo o procreado sin madre.
Yo quiero ver al hijo de Fox diciendo que el tiene que trabajar por los jóvenes, que ve el rumbo exacto del país y que el país esta listo para ser gobernado por un adolescente precoz, quiero ver que cree una fundación y que llore en los discursos, quiero ver eso y sobretodo quiero ver cuanto duraba antes de aparecer destituido hasta como hijo de la familia Fox.

También, en “Primer Plano” se planteaban el misterio del siglo, ¿Por qué Marta era tan popular?, y explicaban que ni los mas enterados del tema tenían la respuesta, ¿qué creen?, ¡Yo la tengo!, Marta es TAN popular entre el pueblo porque la gente, aun se vende por una torta, un refresco, una bici, un desayuno en los Pinos o un discurso para los niños de la calle, en resumen, el pueblo aún es pendejo.

Uran Legends II

17 Jul

Finally for today’s topic, “Urban legends”, we have the latest from George W. Bush; He said the elections may have to be postponed because of a possible terrorist attack, yet he gave a speech last week where he said that, weapons of mass destruction or not, the destruction of Iraq made this world a safer place.
I’m sure he just pretends to be stupid.

Urban Legends

17 Jul

I sincerely hope I haven’t talked about this subject before, otherwise my dear reader will have to excuse my bad memory.

According to a couple of sites that do research on “Urban Legends” a type of film called “SNUFF” has never been real and basically snuff films don’t exist.
It seems all their investigations lead to films that, being foreign and from a hard to track background, were easier to sell as “real”, so if the film was full of violence it was announced to be a real life underground or illegal recording, according to this theories such films became quite famous and their distributors quite rich out of this fake publicity and the scandal they created when being thought real.

I’ll assume all of that it’s true, I’ll believe for a minute that this people actually lead an investigation that concluded such films had never existed, no film has been made on a real life murder or real life rape.
Now let’s move a bit forward, today there are at least 2 sites that receive thousands of visits a day, both show real murders or crimes filmed on video or photographed, the “difference” here is that so far they haven’t been filmed with the mere purpose of selling them but as a mere act of documenting the scene.

For example, one of the most popular pages is currently showing as a “premiere” the infamous videos of hostages in Iraq being decapitated, the front page lets the visitor know that the newest versions of those videos are available for download, the strange thing about this is that all sorts of people seem interested in seeing not only that but hundreds of different images showing infamous crimes and murders, from the average teen to the working class father, they all bomb their journals with links to those sites, in a way of calling other’s attention.

I’ve (probably) already talked about why people love to see others die or bleed, and I have also made comments about why people love to be the centre of attention, but what surprises me here is that, knowing there’s people that buy videos of car accidents, police evidence on suicides, surgeries and even photographs of corpses in the middle of an autopsy, somebody still believes there’s no such thing as SNUFF only because, unlike Iraq’s decapitation videos, they are not sold at the local video store, and even when at adult shops, porn videos in which the actresses know they’ll have sex but don’t have a clue it’s going to be a rape, have been sold for years now.

The difference in murdering for the sake of a film and murdering for ANY other reason is quite big yet, filming a suicide in auto mode is still different, those differences big or small, assuming they still exist, could actually say something about the limits of the way we are living?.

Martuchis Cap. 43

10 Jul

Que ni me venga a decir Fox que respete a su esposa, que cuando se va a dar una conferencia es ella sola pero cuando le dan lata ya tiene un hombre que vea por ella, pero eso si, respetar su papel de nueva esposa y no de presidenta electa, ¡jamas!.

Me pudo encantar lo que se declaro esta semana, que Martita muy mona dice “Las mujeres ya no vamos a estar al margen del poder”, ¿perdón?, ¿Ella que poder tiene?, ni es presidenta ni es diputada ni tiene un lugar de elección publica, lo que es más, ¿de qué poder esta hablando?.

Fox sigue maravillado, tratando de que Lula lo pelara tantito mientras en el país un empresario manda poner un desplegado en un periódico de la Argentina para que se nos haga caso, ese desplegado no obedece a la libertad de expresión, sino a la necesidad de que al menos por presión internacional se soluciones los problemas del país, que pareciera, cada vez son mas grandes.
Pero Martuchis ya tiene aliados, no solo Fox sino ahora un tal Madrazo, ayuda de la buena.

Y, ¿qué decir de el tío del niño verde? Esos genes. En su programa sabatino pasan una entrevista (“debate virtual”) que si hubiera sido mía hubiera mandado exiliado a López Doriga ‘nomas para que no hubiera testigos de mi real estupidez, pero es el tío del niño verde de quien hablamos, el la retransmitió y hasta con subtítulos.

Claro es que no dice un enunciado sin perder el avión, pero la frase maestra es:
“Tendrás que hablar de mi, porque todo indica que seré el próximo presidente de la republica”.
Lo único que nos dejo el 2 de Julio es el sueño ultra guajiro de que si Fox es presidente, cualquiera puede serlo.

Gracias, Muchas Gracias.

Operetta

10 Jul

Just saw for the second time in my life a one-song performance by “The Tiger Lilies”, the first time I was speechless, this time I’m speechless as well.
They played “Bullies Boys”, the music was shivering, the voice did the best acting performance I’ve ever heard, the performance by itself was beyond a masterpiece.
An opera is often a drama, and often that drama seems ludicrous, at least for me, at least for this century because as somebody else said, nobody would believe a cry of pain or a few words of remorse being yelled musically, involuntary comedy is what opera ends up being most of the time for the less illustrated like myself, but “Bullies Boys” had all the pain a tragic opera needs, expresses every inch of it, tells the story, I could understand it, horrific yet beautiful.
I suggest, to all of those who call yourselves artists of the classic arts, people who use their faces as canvas for an not yet understood concept, dancers who feel fire in their souls, to the ones who feel they can express the world with the movements of the
ir bodies, to those who play instruments the way it has been done 2,000 years ago, do whatever it takes to watch the tiger lilies, if you are not even a gram of good as them don’t bother, you’re not good enough for art.

Arena

10 Jul

Last week was the highly advertised final of BBVIP2 II, as I already mentioned it was a circus and being such they had an elephant as a special attraction. I also previously mentioned that the elephant got so confused that began to run all over the tv studio with the host still sitting on top of him.

What I haven’t mentioned is that google removed me again from their URL search results, thank you, I feel great now…

So, animals as a source of entertainment keeps proving to be a bad idea, why keep doing it? Who wins what here?.

Elephants, should be said, have to be trained for years before being able to appear in front of a crowd, the process is long and painful, they have to be physically injured every single day many hours a day for years until they learn who the master is, the purpose of hitting and yelling to an elephant whilst he/she is chained down is to make him(/her) believe he no longer is in control, he has to know he’s not strong, he can’t do anything to save himself, he’s a slave now, he must be submissive and obey, he has no dignity, he’s worthless, a waste that nobody wants. Almost like a battered wife in the hands of her own abusive husband.

After a while, if the elephant is strong he’ll obey all the orders of his trainers, if he is not he’ll die in the process, but there’s a 3rd option, that he will believe he’s not an elephant but a pile of junk for a while and one day he’ll remember he was born free and can walk and move as he wants.

That could be what happened to the elephant on TV last week, got scared with the people, the flags, the lights and shiny pieces of paper falling down everywhere, he no longer wanted to be there so he tried to get out, indifferent to the beating of his trainer or to the fact that his trainer started to climb up his nose.

I thin it’s obvious that the elephant didn’t want to be on TV, he didn’t appear one day outside the TV studio and said “Hey I want a chance for people to see me”, I think it’s obvious he enjoyed being a free elephant and didn’t try to be part of the show business, elephants are not humans, humans are not elephants.

If I ever see another elephant being killed after running over people at a circus or show event I think I’ll thank god.

Too much too soon

7 Jul

My dear reader will have to excuse yet again another “everybody get in at the same time” type of entry, but due to several reasons I see myself unable to do a post for each subject; Today’s menu will include Hussein S., Dalai Lama and a TV series called “Friends”, let’s begin.

News are floating around that the “Dalai Lama” will be visiting soon, he’ll have several meetings with different leaders from other religions and I suspect the man will also have different meetings with several people from the “high” (economic) class.
The reason for the leaders of different religions meetings with the rich and famous has never been an issue, what I do consider strange is why the Dalai Lama is a leader.
Let’s see, the Dalai Lama is a big celebrity on this side of the world, Why?, really, Why coming from a “religion” that’s not even a religion but a way of life?.
I can understand why people seek advice from him, as well as from a rabbi or even from a priest, but there’s a difference between “guide” and “leader”. Why do I think the Dalai Lama is seen as a leader? Because he travels the world in the name of Buddhism, monks, china, Tibet, it’s all there, but any person that has lived in Japan, China or even Korea can understand how Buddhism is not about praying or about sacred images of strangers, is about the soul, it’s not about a person but about the whole.
I can only guess that most western beliefs are so deep-rooted that nobody can picture spiritualism without religion.

Talking about western spiritualism, let’s talk about “Friends”.
Yesterday the final episode of those series was broadcast to the whole city, I have no clue how many people watched it but there are big numbers everywhere about how many people saw that same episode all over the USA.
I didn’t see the episode, I actually never saw a single episode, why?, Because many years ago I saw a special report on a very special episode that was being recorded, the episode? Nothing more than a guy who loves a girl but the girl loves another girl but when she was still with the guy she had sex with him, got pregnant and didn’t want anything to do with the guy but wanted to make a family with the other girl and ignore the other guy but keep their child as her and her girlfriend’s only.

Now, why on earth would that be considered entertainment?, Comedy, where?. I understand the USA has a talent for making everyday life situations look like a show but why would the rest of the world agree?.
It’s interesting an analysis on why “Friends” had been so popular narrowed it all down to the fact that they were all young forever and forever having a good time, the reality in all of that lies in…?

Somebody should try to do some series with babies making funny stuff, oh no, that’s already been done, how about an 80 year old inside a teen’s body?, ah, true it’s done too, talking animals?, angels with a special mission?.

Ok, fiction it is, Is that the reason why it’s amusing?.
Love is real, real is love.

And moving on to the final show of today, Saddam Hussain is on trial, the court looks more like a janitor’s room decorated with 10dlls of furniture donated by some charity association, the best part is when the trial begins and the man is asked his name, the man answers he’s the president of Iraq, “no? really?, make a fool of yourself to the world! Tell them in a serious manner, repeat the same answer, wait for the laughs, yes it’s working the world thinks you are stupid!”.

Is that the best they can do?.

Cuesta la cuesta

Mas circo:

  • Fallaron mis quinielas, por alguna razón extraña “la gente” no voto por Dulce para tener un séptimo lugar pero votaron para que tuviera el segundo.
  • Ser político si que tiene sus ventajas, influencias hasta en las televisoras.
  • Y hablando de televisoras y sus influencias, ¿Para que exigir justicia en las muertas de Juarez con una hora a la semana de tiempo televisivo si se puede explotar el morbo?.
  • La Sra. Veronica Castro merece mi respeto pero me pregunto si un accidente mas grave con un animal salvaje hubiera ayudado a que por fin se dejara de utilizar a estos animales (y todos en general) como fuente de diversión.

Diversión, ¿hasta donde y según quien?.
