Six years ago that the leader of the mythical group of Queens left us, but his legacy remains. Created a new style in the decadent rock of the 70s, and returned to lead the rebellion and the fun to a rock and roll that he was dying with their items fresh and fast.

I have spent more than six years since the alma mater of the group The Ramones is not with us. Of course I am referring to Joey Ramone, least known as Jeffrey Hyman, your real name.

With 14 jobs in study (from 1976 to 1995), 9 jobs live (including the mythical "It's Alive", recorded in London in 1977) ,and countless compilations and versions, the Ramones are one of the brightest stars of the firmament of the rock.

And it is not for less. In addition to its vast production, created a style of its own to basis of torn jeans, t-shirts, leather jackets and sports that was imitated throughout the world.

Were a real breath of fresh air. In an era in which the rock had been transformed into something similar to the opera, with themes of 20 minutes, and virtuosic music, the Ramones played songs of no more than 3 minutes and with a compelling style that made them sound like a pneumatic hammer.

As the large dinosaurs, the great of the rock opera, with its slow movements and heavy, they had to give way to these small, skilled, fast and furry mammals, and they, together with the other barbarians of the new wave, saved the rock and roll of the extinction.

But time passes: the famous CBGB's, the local where the Ramones reached the glory, he saw his last concert in 2006 of the hand of Patti Smith. He is currently a local clothing kicky, in a neighborhood that has become "trend". If the old Joey lifted his head.

South Africa is perfect for those who love the black continent, offering more than safaris and excellent beaches, with virtually no legal requirements for travel, and excellent infrastructure. With a multitude of landscapes, from the savannah in the north in Mpumalanga,to the steppe of the Transvaal and the indigenous flora of the Cape province, to beautiful cities like Durban or Cape, is an unforgettable destination.

Some 20 years ago, the leaders of our country invented the famous Spain, everything under the Sun, To expand the Spanish tourism.

Regardless of what is deserved of the label, few countries can exhibit with greater pride that South Africa a variety of landscapes, fauna, cultural and linguistic so overwhelming, that make it insurmountable. From the beaches of the Ocean, so much sought after by surf lovers; to Kruger park, ideal for a safari; or the vineyards of the Cape province, mecca of wine lovers, South Africa can offer to any traveller any type of destination.

Not only can boast of its landscapes: also in the magic of the Indian architecture in Durban, with its aroma of curry and spices and the beauty of Cape Town. Founded in 1652 by the Dutch, is the ideal starting point to view cetaceans and dive near sharks; the Route of the vineyards (with their villages so similar to the Dutch). It is also situated on the coast the Robben Island prison, where Nelson Mandela was, and with its Mediterranean climate, and its luxurious Waterfront complements an unforgettable trip.

Unforgivable would not perform the Garden Route: 400 Km from Cape Town to the coast of Indian Ocean, a beauty almost offensive: not in vain here is one of the floristic regions in which our planet is divided, and shows that species not found in any other part.

We are in the southern hemisphere, as well it should be borne in mind that our summer is their winter. Cape Town is to 33° of latitude, which would result in our hemisphere to Tangier. Add that subtropical in the north, the summer is the rainy season and mosquitoes. The best time to travel would be the start of their winter: May-June. Visa is not necessary and there are no compulsory vaccinations.

Are the excellent roads, so different from the rest of the continent, which allow the best option to get to know this incredible country: rent a car and enjoy.

A gang of perriflauticos associations of Lavapies quarter have frustrated its expectations to mount a procession atheist after the decision of the confirmation of the Superior Court of Madrid to confirm the decision of the Government Delegation in Madrid.

And I am glad. A atheist procession is something as absurd as a baptism secular. On the other hand, and I speak from my own experience, a militant atheist can be very annoying as insistent as a Jehovah's Witness. And as dangerous as any religious zealot.

A religious fanatic is someone who intends to convert and/or eliminate all those who do not take part in its sense (because that is the faith, a sense), in the same way that a psychopath of those emerging in CSI kill a young lass from with the who were obsessed because did not agree with that sentiment. From outside it is clear that there is something insane: how can you force someone to have a feeling -either faith in a god or love of a person-?

A militant atheist is someone who intends to convert and/or eliminate all the participating of a feeling that does not have. As does not have it, imagine that someone will be able to give them, in the same way that a psychopath of those who depart in CSI kills entire families because they are happy, because as the it is not, you will bother that the others are.

And for anyone who thinks that i am exaggerating, or that are different categories - the militant atheist of the religious fanatic - i remember that on behalf of utopias rationalists have been murdered to many more people that on behalf of the faith.

And to return to the caustic tone that i like, then how are you going to fight against the religion from nothing? Because the Church -since atheism in this country more that atheism is anticatolicismo - has something to offer to its faithful. And the typical atheism hispanico, what has to offer, as well as res judicata?. A ideology never purely "anti" has achieved nothing lasting.

In this way, to combat ignorance, the dullness, tontuna and inefficiency, i plan to create a new section in the blog. I confess that I was disturbed by rationalistic atheism. An author, whose name I cannot recall, said that Robespierre, the "secular saint" of the Jacobins, was the faithful representative of the esprit classique, cold, dry…so enlightened and so the rationalist. And i add: with cartesian mentality, gridded, unable to perceive or feel anything that can't really integrate an equation, we are a roll of lord.

As I myself am very rationalist, somehow i have to counter this trend mia, why i like both the quantum physics, although I understand absolutely nothing: i presents a universe of uncertainty, open to chaos. What could be more boring than a universe that works like clockwork (Newton, you're a bland)?

What and how to integrate these two objectives, the fight against the inefficiency of certain bands of hippies civic associations and my cartesian trends? Since with a new section: mythology chunga. Here we acquire the knowledge needed to in the next Holy Week we can organize a procession of the pagan that people come up, and showy with Fieston. Notice that the first article of mythology chunga will focus on the myths of Cthulu, don't support faint!

What is so called because, "mythology chunga"? Because the typical Greek and Roman mythology, usually, bored. So, this will give this a more jocular tone and light-hearted, as once said a friend of mine in the wee hours of the night: "we are going to sacrifice a lamb". To have fun all, we are going (well, less the lamb).

171293615_a00cfe620c.jpg Terrified by the law of karma (that which says that everything you do the Universe you returns multiplied by three) and reflecting on the deployment of cynicism on my inaugural article, I have decided to inaugurate a section called the desk back in action of tribute and nostalgia to that fantastic song of Alaska at that mythical program of saturday morning: The Crystal Ball. Those who remember to about Mazinger Z you know what I'm talking about. In this section, Iran appearing articles which will serve to help (i hope) to young promises of our educational system. In a principle ire explaining the concepts that i see more cost in social, biographies of historical figures and in a future who knows? Historical commentary, maps, art ...

In addition, over the course of this week you will be taken to another section: Ephemeris (for those of the ESGO: anniversary special dates), that will be great to review these milestones without foolish and importance that were determined in the cusp of history: 1 May (Labor Day), May 2 (lifting of Madrid against the French), 14 July ( Bastille Day) …and the most important of all, the July 1 (date of the start of my school holidays). Look at him as a kind of corner of the vague, you can make comments, suggestions ... (another thing is that click event, but you can try).

Innovate or die. To understand the what is chaos? Neoliberal which drags us, I have decided to present this blog enjoyed going up onto the cart of the fashion show in perfect symbiosis two of the hottest topics in our globalised world: the Twilight Saga and a representative of the employer's (oops, sorry, I just wanted to say "entrepreneur". What would i thinking? ).

Here we see our hero of the Saga (no light shines because it fails to give the sun, but at dawn is beautiful) in response to the daring request of one of its employees to recover any time.
