L.A women one of my fav songs by them

Portuguese is just dodgy Spanish.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Stupid Dream's PROG ROCK thread!

Como retirei a imagem do Google e nunca vi estes azulejos ao vivo, não te posso precisar a sua localização. Mas creio que das duas uma: ou estarão localizados em Aljubarrota (no concelho de Alcobaça, distrito de Leiria), caso sejam únicos, ou então podem ser uma ilustração popular e existirem muitas variantes destes azulejos em várias partes do país.

Sim, sim, entendo.

Pretendo conhecer Portugal quando visitar a Europa, em fevereiro. Algum local que não devo perder?

Re: Stupid Dream's PROG ROCK thread!

Depende das partes do país que pretendes visitar... Estás com ideias de correr o país de Norte a Sul ou vais ficar por alguma região específica? Eu não sou o melhor cicerone deste mundo (muito pelo contrário ), mas posso recomendar-te algumas paragens.

Na verdade não vou ter muito tempo. Por mim, conheceria todo o país, mas acho que me concentrarei em Lisboa. Gostaria de conhecer Coimbra, mas vai saber se terei tempo...

Re: Stupid Dream's PROG ROCK thread!

Bem, se só vais ter tempo de ir a Lisboa, tens aqui uma boa síntese de locais obrigatórios: http://www.strawberryworld-lisbon.co...ces/index.html. Eu aprecio particularmente a zona dos bairros típicos de Lisboa. Eles aí falam de Alfama, um dos bairros típicos de Lisboa. Aconselho-te vivamente a correr algumas ruazinhas estreitas destes bairros, acho o ambiente fenomenal... E acho que deves aproveitar para comer uns pastéis de Belém:



Também há um estabelecimento muito pequenino no Rossio chamado "A Ginjinha" que serve o famoso licor de ginja, costuma ser paragem obrigatória para quem gosta deste licor! E a paragem nocturna mais conhecida é decididamente o Bairro Alto. Que me esteja a lembrar agora também não perdes nada se fores ao Hard Rock Café ou ao Cabaret Maxime, sendo que especialmente este último é um local mais "alternativo". E já agora, se tiveres tempo aconselhava-te vivamente ires a Sintra, que fica relativamente perto de Lisboa. Visita pelo menos o Palácio da Pena e o Castelo/muralhas dos Mouros, a vista que se tem de lá é simplesmente fantástica.

Se acabares por ter algum tempinho para ir a Coimbra, os locais mais "habituais" para fazer uma visita serão as ruínas de Conímbriga e o recinto da Universidade. Quanto a este último, não sei até que ponto eles condicionam as visitas por causa das aulas, portanto acho que este link te pode ser útil: http://www.uc.pt/informacaopara/visit/contact.

E acho que já ficas com algumas recordações na bagagem!

I'm seeing that since me and Gustavo hijacked this thread and turned it into a portuguese travelling agency nobody posted here again... Here's my contribution:

- I just thought, let the fellows have their fun in Portugese!

No prob, dears. That means you, too, Gustavo.

******************************

Well I've visited the Symforce III-festival past Sunday, at Tilburg, The Netherlands' 013-venue, and I have kinda 'mixed feelings' about it. Still have to make up my mind on writing an 'ultimate' review on it.

Lots of lovely music/bands, especially the Swedish outfit Karmakanic - band by ex-Flower King Jonas Reingold did an awesome job. Still... overall... I don't think this edition could actually match the previous versions of this festival. I'll elaborate on that further in my 'official' review.

A very special mentioning should go to the very sweet (might well be a mite TOO sweet ) laddies of Moon Safari!
Fantastic, Beach Boys-like vocals - but the best moment (music-wise) of the festival was when the guys actually gave an impromptu, barbershop-like performance OUT THERE ON THE STREETS, in front of the venue! Now that was absolutely gorgeous.
I know there was a guy there who actually recorded it, but I haven't found it yet on YouTube. well... awaiting....

And it might just be me, but the band I enjoyed the most of all was the German space/post-rock outfit Long Distance Calling, who played in the 'Batcave', 013's little stage for the 'Great Unknown'.

Finally, some HEAVY GUITARS!!! Folks compared the band to a heavier Mogwai and the very underrated English outfit Amplifier
Taped this over there. Not bad, eh? Me likes. Me likes VERY MUCH INDEED.

STONER-PROG. NOT for the faint-hearted.

******************************

Oh, and before I forget to mention it - Rush' Natural Science is just f**king AWESOME!!!

Which FOOL said that 'Prog Rock Is Dead'?

It's more alive than in the past 20 years!
