A corrente pede 10 álbums que ainda apareçam nas nossas playlists – uma capa por dia, sem explicações, e com a nomeação da praxe. Vou saltar os artifícios e apresentar os 10 da minha vida (que deviam ser 20 para caberem mais), um pouco por ordem de importância: Advertisements
It’s chicks like you that give women a bad name.
What’s it for? Back and forth
“O teu avô era dos lobisomens. Desde pequena que me contava histórias sobre eles nas encruzilhadas.” Prémio História de Família do Ano
Novo vocábulo descoberto ao ouvir duas adolescentes a comentar o cartaz do Primavera Sound e imediatamente partilhado com a confraria.
When you stay home for 6 months healing a broken foot, going back to the daily work routine feels like this.
Aqui há uns anos comprei um cartão de telemóvel de uma rede que não era a minha habitual, e que já raramente uso. Desde esse dia que comecei a receber periodicamente SMS a avisarem-me para pagar a factura da Cabovisão (de quem não sou cliente), para levar o carro que não tenho com uma matrícula que não reconheço à revisão […]
Going back to 90s music for some unknown reason. This is still one of the best, classier pop albums of all time. You Have Been Loved is heartbreakingly beautiful.
… quando a única review apresentada no livro é retirada do Goodreads.
A childhood friend made me a business proposal that involves a fair amount of writing, on the same week I decided to resume the countless unfinished stories I’ve left abandoned inside a gazillion unfinished notebooks.

…texting your proxy-mom asking if you can have dinner at her place because you had a shitty day and don’t feel like going back to an empty house to wallow in self-pity – and seeing this when you finally get there:
Manics fan girl gets tickets to watch The Holy Bible being played in full next year. This is how I feel:
This was my very first (and insignificant) post in the blogosphere, on the now fossilized Eternal M: acontece aos melhores…. I miss the carelessness of being 22, even if I had to work 2 jobs to pay for Uni and the bills.
Only just noticed that Hey Rosetta! quote The Handmaid’s Tale on a song from their debut album.
Twitted about The Holy Bible from the Manic Street Preachers – one of the best, most brutally raw & cathartic albums I have ever heard. Immediately gained new follower from account with Bible quotes. Should I tell them?
Stayed up late last night watching interviews with the stunning Margaret Atwood and a Pullman lecture on the importance of book illustrations. Because I’m hardcore that way.
…ainda põe a língua de fora quando desenha e pinta.
Decisions based on emotion aren’t decisions, at all. They’re instincts. Which can be of value. The rational and the irrational complement each other. Individually they’re far less powerful. Binge-watch House of Cards during the weekend. Feel severely under-dressed all throughout the show. Realize how much I love to be able to look at myself in the mirror before I go […]

I am merely a discarded wooden plank powerless to resist the crushing of steel still, I want to save you no matter if you’re dead or still barely breathing, breathing Liu Xiaobo, June Fourth Elegies Translated from the Chinese by Jeffrey Yang Graywolf Press, 2012
Today is World Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Day and the official website invites everyone – whether you have been diagnosed or not – to make a wish related to MS. You can also take the opportunity to learn more about the disease and maybe demystify some preconceived notions – as well as understanding the real effects it has on all those who live with it. In […]
