I can say i’m pretty happy being who i am and where i am and as i am. I don’t have even nearly half my dreams fulfilled and i still have a long way to go but i can say i don’t want to change my life for any other. Even so i can say there were a lot of things i would do differently if i had the knowledge i have today. I would avoid getting hurt so many times and i would enjoy my life much more taking less attention to things that are not importante. Anyway if i had to choose i would never go back. I truly believe all good and bad things that ever happened to me shaped this individual i am today and i am exactly where i want to be. Still dreaming about great projects, winning some and loosing some, just another guy on the crowd but aware of what i want and where i’m headed. Life is so complex we shouldn’t stop much time to think about it’s engines. As we are a bunch of different things our lives are a bunch of even more things. Each decision every part of ourself take along the way can change the path totally. A shorter step or a longer step and that car would hit you or not. Five minutes more to make that call and maybe a life of regret for a decision you took. One can get paranoid trying to master the right paths and choices and some are always undecided about the chosen path. Our bodies are making choices as well to survive on the conditions received and there are consequences to each choice. I can’t begin to think about the many lives i didn’t have by choosing this one i have now but i really don’t care much because i’m glad to have this one. So the important thing is: Are you happy with your choices and the path you took? Are you willing to take the chance of regretting not doing something you believe in? I believe a lot in intuition as the advice your hole existent being is giving you every time you need to choose a path. You can listen or not. As your body hurts when you get sick as a hint something is wrong intuition helps us when we need the most because deep down inside we all know where we are headed. So we should listen to our intuition and we should never neglect a call from our own self in order to live a life we can relate to and accept when we are older.

I was born in 69 so in the end of the 70’s i was a ten years old kid. This was a very rich age for culture. I remember the premiere of Star Wars. A film i watched in the Movie theatres fourteen times. It was the age of disco and the age of punk. The age of feminism. The age of pop and the age fo hippies. It was the age of the big promisses for the future with the start of the personal computing and the beginning of roots for globalisation. There were no AIDS. The kids that grew up at that age were supposed to change the world. Let’s not forget we are talking about the cold war so the world we are supposed to build is a world in peace. Something very interesting happened in music. It was a time where kids opposed the status quo and embraced the idea that chance is always better no matter what. Punks looking for anarchy, New wavers looking for a different cultural attitude, hippies fighting wars with flowers, skinheads gathering gangs to fight for the working class, Hip-hop from the projects talking about real african american issues, mainstream dancing on the disco clubs and having free sex, Heavy Metal dudes alienating from society and The Yuppies casting a capitalist shadow in all this fun. A importante thing at those times is that these tribes didn’t mix at all. Skinheads would only go to punk shows to fight. Rock hed nothing to do with new wave and all these tribes had their own way of dressing and talking and acting and all reflected the music they listened. The thing is: that was not all fun and joy. There was a lot of prejudice between these tribes and also with the status quo. It was a time of fight and hate in many levels but it was also a time of a rich cultural creation. The richer of the last decades. Punk, pop, pop-rock, electronica, hip-hop, new wave, goth, disco. Almost all the musical styles we listen today came from the 70’s. We had grunge in the 90’s and many electronica segments but not even one new hole musical style. In other hand today kids go to a rock party that ends as a disco party and they hang with hip-hop kids that enjoy electronic music and so on. Punk is only the theme of some fashion collections as well as hippie. Psychedelic is a graphic style and also a segment for electronica. That makes me wonder. The cultural segregation from the 70’s created so much and the 00’s cultural mixup where everybody can do anything created so little? Am i missing something here? If i’m right segregation is not so bad culturally speaking? As i don’t like the idea of segregation how can creation grow in a fluid environment where the “need” to raise a voice in not so important for a group as it is for an individual?
