Rodolfo Walsh claimed that writing was a violent trade. I’ve always liked that definition. When I write a text, I seek to generate an impact. A “cross to the jaw”, would say Roberto Arlt. However, I cannot say that I agree with the definition. To Walsh, a writer had to denounce the system and writing […]
Yesterday I read a text about the supposed benefits (these news should always be taken with a grain of salt) of handwriting: it would improve motor coordination, especially cursive writing. My cursive was disgusting, so I stopped practicing it in high school, and my writing with block letters is more or less the same. I […]
looks like a normal room has everything it should have: furniture and wardrobe to store clothes and junk bedside table to support a lamp a book but on my bed right in the middle they do not apply the laws of physics: a black hole dwells looks like a cushion but it is not whenever […]
When one analyzes current political discourse, there are phrases like liquid modernity (as if everyone had read Zygmunt Bauman’s book), artificial intelligence or fake news. We are used to hear that because of X (insert here technology, immigrants, the loss of traditional values, etc) the government will fall (or is) in the hands of a […]
Only a few days ago I wrote in here “who turned the lights off?”, talking about the accumulated number of consecutive rainy or cloudy days that we had been suffering in Buenos Aires. At that time, it seemed that the sun was never going to come out, and that we were condemned to eternal darkness, […]
Who turned the lights off? Another cloudy day in Buenos Aires and with probablity of hail. On TV, they talk with fascination about electrical storms and natural catastrophes. When forecasters predict terrible storms, they smile. Speaking of cyclones: albertito and sergio with cristi, miguel angelito with mauri, and urtuboy with robertito. The spanish royal academy […]
Yesterday I had an urgent need to continue coding the game demo, because I was feeling that I wasn’t dedicating enough time to the project. Additionaly, this morning I had a job interview with a European game development company, so to calm my anxiety I needed to code. For me, just like writing, programming is […]
Autumn, across a lonely road in Buenos Aires.
Lyon, France, about a year ago. By the way, that’s a wall. Setting personal goals (and meeting them) is essential. About a month and a half ago, I decided to code and release a personal blog in Spanish and English. It was a project I’d been putting off for years. Yesterday, I managed to finish […]
I haven’t been updating very often because I’m working on several projects. The game has advanced, I worked a lot on the player’s state machine and I think I achieved fluid movement. The problem was that I had to design the entire animator controller because the model uses the legacy system. I’d thought about using […]
