THE ENGLISH MENU IS AT THE BOTTOM

The quick tempered guitarist

  The first chapters of Stars of dust: A gift for you   Things I have are all imaginary. People says the true happiness is to free oneself by material goods, but this is a concept out of the logic of our day. The world is structured to accumulate things and happiness is closely linked to this…

Johnny B. Cool doesn’t like the Queen

    The first chapters of Stars of dust: A gift for you   I have many things, but they are imaginary. I can’t explain the reason why I repeat this sentence. I think it’s an unconscious trademark. And then, somehow, I need it to legitimize our speeches here at the pub. Here at Johnny’s pub we…

Letters from the Johnny’s pub – Marley

The first chapters of Stars of dust: A gift for you I have many things, but they are all imaginary. Although I know I’m on the right way, I also know I still have a lot of things to do. All this makes me anxious. I’d like to fall asleep and then suddenly wake up without problems.…

Letters from the Johnny’s pub – The diabetic guitarist

    The first chapters of Stars of dust: A gift for you   All the things I have are imaginary. And also those I can offer. The initiative of the pub is going well. Unknown musicians ask me to perform in the club, but many of them are not interested to their music. No: they hope…

The goniometer: everything is relative

    A gift for you: DEAR CUSTOMER   Understand you are wrong, the world is full of people who are right. That’s why it rots. Louis-Ferdinand Céline   I call it “the goniometer theory”.

Originality of the animal

  A gift for you: DEAR CUSTOMER   The ones I love the most are the people who have probably not even completed the fourth grade, that is, the absolutely simple people. I’m not saying this as a rhetoric. The petit-bourgeois culture, at least in my country (but perhaps also in France and Spain), is…

How to Export the Promised Land

  A gift for you: DEAR CUSTOMER   Latin America and Africa Years ago I read the book by Gianni Minà, Continente Desaparecidos. The text dealt with the theme of misery and wars in the world: if two economic formats such as communism and socialism have failed, can we say that capitalism has triumphed? Famine…

Amusement Park

    The first chapters of Stars of dust: A gift for you   I needed the Amusement Park up to twenty-five years and more. I never stopped going, I just stopped telling everyone I went to it. It was a magical journey which materialized. You had it handy whenever you wanted it. Or when the world…
