Music and Isometry

The video in this post reminds me of the golden age of isometric games, such as X-COM, Ultima VII, Populous, and the list goes on. The music is called Remind Me, from the Norwegian duo Röyksopp, whose musical style is very adequately called Electronic Chill Out. This video won the 2002 best video award from MTV Europe, which is pretty snazzy. Now I am going to see if I download some of those games from an abandonware website.

Superman may be Serbian

This might be an unusual title, but it is logically correct. Here is the deal, researchers have found a mineral with the same composition of Kryptonite in Serbia. So if you follow my logic, the place in which Kryptonite can be found, should also be the place where Superman's rocket from Krypton has landed. Having landed in Serbia, it makes sense that Superman might have been raised in Serbia, Clarko Kentovic, how about that?

Park Güell

From Park Guell

Since I am already losing valuable research time for my lunch break, I figured I should post a couple more pictures from my latest expedition to Barça. This one is from the famous Park Güell, in which some of the nicest creations of Antoni Gaudí are located. The mosaics and the shapes featured in the monuments here are quite beautiful, like the sun in the figure below.

Maradona dreams of Brazil

Funny stuff, Maradona dreaming of being in the Brazilian national team because he has been drinking too much Guaraná. Too bad some Argentinians did not get the joke and started the bashing in the comments, they obviously have never tasted the drink, it is really awesome.

Saint Pau


This picture is from a street in Tarragona, Spain, where I have spent my pre-easter weekend with very good company. Now the funny bit, for those who speak Portuguese, the street name means something along the lines of Saint Cock.
