Pointless vandalism. Jerks.
On a lighter note, there’s this. The Avalanche’s “Since I Left You.” I like it, not so much for the music, but the vid has a nice storyline with a clever twist at the end (h/t ryannon). The song reminded me of this grooviness:
Malo‘s 1972 hit “Suavecito.” Malo was a San Fransisco band led by Jorge Santana, Carlos’ brother. Rather than pick another sappy hit from that year (like Chuck Berry’s “My Ding-a-Ling“) let’s try this:
Carlos Santana‘s “Nowhere to Run” from a 1982 concert promoted by Apple founder Steve Wozniak. Now let’s jump forward another ten years to 1992.
And with that we’re outta here. Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for more fun.
Sure it’s a funny picture, but the story is anything but.
Spectacular project of Sebastian Errazuriz in 2006 (“Memorial of a Concentration Camp”, Santiago, Chile):
“A 10-meter magnolia tree is planted in the center of Chile’s National Stadium where dictator Pinochet in 1973 imprisoned thousands of political prisoners who were tortured and killed.
After planting the tree, the stadium doors are open to the public as a park, offering a space to stop, look again, and remember.
An impossible, cathartic soccer match played before 20,000 people, closes the project after a week of activity.”
