WHITE HOUSE LEAKS

LEAKSestan arreglando las filtraciones de la casa blanca. convertida en campamento militar hace una semana, la sede gubernamental cierra 2 semanas bajo renovaciones. dicen que cambian el sistema de aire acondicionado y los intercomunicadores. pero la prensa especula que la desmantelan de arriba a abajo buscando microfonos que pudo instalar la gente de obama antes de mudarse. eso explica las filtraciones que persisten todavia y que piensan que ya no puede ser el atemorizado personal de trabajo sino señales que salen directas desde sus pasillos, baños y oficinas, voces, discusiones, conversaciones, chismes, chistes. entonces el presidente se va 17 dias a su mansion de nueva jersey y los demas, a sus casas. el general kelly, tras imponer disciplina militar, limpia su cuartel. por lo demas, trump ya empezo el maraton de tuits. e insiste en que no esta descansando sino trabajando duro, a diferencia de obama, que jugaba golf durante su asueto.©varela

they’re fixing the leaks in the white house. turned into a military camp a week ago, the government headquarters closed for 2 weeks under renovations. they say they change the air conditioning system and the intercoms. but the press speculates that they dismantle it from top to bottom looking for microphones that could install the obama people before moving out. that explains the leaks that still persist and that they think it can no longer be the frightened work staff but signs that come out direct from their halls, bathrooms and offices, voices, discussions, conversations, gossip, jokes. then the president goes 17 days to his new jersey mansion and the rest, to their homes. general kelly, after imposing military discipline, cleans his barracks. for the rest, trump already started the marathon of tweets. and insists that he is not resting but working hard, unlike obama, who played golf during his holidays.©varelat4t5t6

sancionestrump firmo, por fin, las sanciones que el congreso le impuso a rusia. primero dijo eran inconstitucionales. despues su secretario de estado, tillerson, afirmo que el presidente no estaba contento con las sanciones. las acaba de firmar, pero miren esto, en privado. trump hace show de la firma de sus ordenes. todas las ordenes las estampa ante las camaras y con gente detras. garabatea, levanta el documento, muestra el borron a camara, y regala la pluma a algun tracatran de los que estan detras de el. pero las sanciones a rusia las firmo en privado. por que? para no ofender a putin? por que trump no hizo show de la firma de las sanciones a rusia? por que respeta tanto a putin? por las armas nucleares no es, trump tiene mas armas nucleares que putin. por dinero tampoco, estados unidos es mas rico que rusia. por que es? por que nunca habla mal de putin? se burla hasta del papa pero de putin nunca ha dicho una frase fuera de lugar. que le sabe putin a trump, que trump sabe que se lo sabe? cual es el miedo de trump a putin? al margen del simplismo de que si el americano esta enamorado del ruso, que si el tycon es un viejo maricon, trump respeta a putin totalmente. el gesto de firmar las sanciones en privado, lo demuestra.©varela
SIGNATUREtrump finally signed the sanctions that congress imposed on russia. first he said they were unconstitutional. then his secretary of state, tillerson, affirmed that the president was unhappy with the sanctions. he just signed them, but look at this, in private. trump does show of the signature of his orders. all orders are stamped in front of the cameras and with people behind them. he scribbles, raises the document, shows the mess to camera, and gives the pen to some minion of those who are behind it. but sanctions on russia are signed in private. why? to not offend putin? why trump didn’t make show of the sanctions to russia? why he respect putin so much? for having nuclear weapons isn’t, trump has more nuclear weapons than putin. for money either, america is richer than russia. why is it? why don’t he ever talk bad about putin? he mocks even the pope but to putin has never said a misplaced phrase. what putin know of trump, that trump know he know? what is trump’s fear of putin? apart from the flippant that if the american is in love with the russian, that if the tycon is an old faggot, trump respects putin completely. the gesture of signing the sanctions in private, proves it.©varela

TRUMP FALL

trump grucortesia del washington post desde anoche se sabe por filtradores del gobierno (que siguen a pesar que desde ayer la casa blanca es campamento militar), que trump inventa el tema de la reunion de su hijo con el ballet bolshoi encabezado por la abogada en el trump tower. lo que es una recopilacion de data sobre clinton intercambiada por promesa de eliminar sanciones, el presidente lo convierte en adopcion. le dicta la version a su hijo y le dice que asi debe decirlo en la investigacion. despues, el mismo repite la dosis explicando la sobremesa del almuerzo con putin, donde tambien habla de adopcion. aparentemente esto no encaja por la falta de credibilidad pero no es para consumo mediatico sino legal. proteccion para la corte. el acta magnitsky, es una sancion que entre otras cosas detiene la adopcion de niños rusos por americanos. en las conversaciones rusoamericanas durante las elecciones pasadas, la palabra adopcion se usa como codigo por el kremlin para hablar de las sanciones economicas. lo que hace trump al decir que siempre conversa de adopciones con los rusos es cuidarse de que, descubierto el verdadero motivo, no lo acusen de perjurio ya que siempre estuvo diciendo la verdad, desde un principio. visto asi resulta que, tras el acople de la soyuz y el apollo en 1975 patrocinado por roscosmos y nasa, mas la brigada militar de 1990 comandada por schwarzkopf y auspiciada por el pentagono y znamenka en la guerra del golfo, hay una tercera colusion rusoamericana pero no por 2 intituciones gubernamentales sino por una institucion gubernamental rusa, la gru (antigua kgb) y el team trump, totalmente privado y sin conexiones con el partido republicano todavia, durante la campaña electoral 2016, a partir de junio cuando ya el tycon queda como unico candidato contra hillary. la colusion intercambia info sobre el partido democrata, emails del team clinton, finanzas de hillary y bill, por promesas de levantar las sanciones economicas del affair ucrania. ya trump y su gente pueden acusarse de alta traicion antes de tomar el poder. y tras el 20 de enero hay abuso de poder, obstruccion de justicia y perjurio. que trump no sigue hablando de hillary por obsesion sino por interes; necesita acentuar que mientras a el lo ayudaba rusia a ella la ayudaba ucrania, y asi distribuye -y comparte- el delito politico. quiere, como todo megalomano, que su rival politico caiga con el.©varela
SIGNATUREcourtesy of the washington post, last night it’s known by government leakers (which continues despite the fact that since yesterday the white house is military camp), that trump invents the theme of his son’s meeting with the bolshoi ballet led by the lawyer lady at trump tower. what is a compilation of data on clinton, exchanged by promise to remove sanctions, the president makes it an adoption. he dictates the version to his son and tells him to say so in the investigation. then he repeats the dose explaining the lunch table-talk with putin, where he also talks about adoption. apparently this doesn’t fit by the lack of credibility but it’s not for media consumption but legal. protection for the court. the magnitsky act, is a sanction that among other things stops the adoption of russian children by americans. in the russian-americans conversations during the past elections, the word adoption is used as a code by the kremlin to talk about economic sanctions. what trump does by saying that he always talks about adoptions with the russians, is to take care of, once discovered the real motive, they don’t accuse him of perjury ’cause he was always telling the truth, from the beginning. seen thus, it turns out that, after the coupling of the soyuz and the apollo in 1975 sponsored by roscosmos and nasa, plus the military brigade of 1990 commanded by schwarzkopf and sponsored by the pentagon and znamenka in the gulf war, there is a third russian-american collusion but not by 2 governmental institutions but by a russian government institution, the gru (former kgb) and the trump team, totally private and unconnected with the republican party, still during the 2016 election campaign, as from june when the tycon is already the only candidate against hillary. the collusion exchanges info on the democrat party, emails from team clinton, hillary and bill’s finances, for promises to lift the economic sanctions of the ukrainian affair. already Trump and his people can be accused of high treason before taking power. and after january 20, there is abuse of power, obstruction of justice and perjury. that trump doesn’t continue talking about hillary by obsession but by interest; he needs to emphasize that while he was helped by russia, ukraine helped her, and thus distributes -and shares- the political crime. he wants, like every megalomaniac, to have his political rival falling with him.©varela

TRUMP & FOX

trump & foxla teoria del hackeo y la colusion con rusia es tan floja que se desbarata sola. la historia incluso se apiada de ella: en el 48 stalin ayudo a truman contra dewey (la prensa pronostico favorito al republicano hasta la noche de la eleccion) y nikita le dio la mano a kennedy contra nixon, de ahi que su hermano bobby fuera a la embajada sovietica en washington, en diciembre del 60, a hablar con el oficial kgb (lo mismo que hizo en el 2016 el yerno de trump, solo que el kgb ahora es gru). ya lo dije, la mayor colusion de rusos y americanos ocurrio en 1975 con el acople de la soyuz y el apollo patrocinado por roscosmos y nasa (y nadie se corto las venas). hubo otro acople mas, este militar, cuando en 1990 gorbashev mando una brigada rusa a la guerra del golfo, bajo las ordenes del general schwarzkopf, americano. y cnn ni se preocupo por entrevistar a los tovarishes armados. de alla para aca solo hay conexiones a nivel de mafia, no de gobiernos ni ejercitos. tal vez el investigador independiente mueller, para justificar los millones que le pide al departamento de justicia, se encaramo en el camino correcto -pero peligroso- hurgando las operaciones financieras de trump & family a traves de bancos sancionados por el affair crimea y la 1040 no reportada por trump durante una decada. alguien cree que el miss universo de st petersburg del 2013 fue un evento limpio y honrado? no jodan. investigando los negocios de trump tumban hasta rockefeller y rothschild. que de eso esta hecha america, de un gran fraude envuelto en la bandera. pero ya resulta cansona la prensa liberal. y el new york time, para variar -o contrariar- se apea con que el programa matinal de 3 horas de fox (6-9am), fox & friends, es el mas poderoso show de tv actual. trump no solo es el invitado especial cotidiano sino el productor, editor y publicista. por eso hace poco ataco a su contrapartida televisiva, morning joe, de msnbc. la mentalidad del entretenimiento es la que prima en el presidente. asi que estoy por creer que hasta la investigacion rusa es parte del libreto de nuestro reality show diario.©varela
SIGNATUREthe russia hacking and collusion theory is so loose that it fall aparts itself. the history even took pity on her: in the ’48 stalin helped truman against dewey (the press forecast the republican as favorite until the election night) and nikita gave a hand to kennedy against nixon, hence his brother bobby went to the soviet embassy in washington, in december of the ’60, to speak with the kgb’s official (same as he did in the 2016 trump’s son-in-law, only that now the kgb is gru). i already said, the largest collusion of russians and americans occurred in 1975 with the coupling of the soyuz and the apollo sponsored by roscosmos and nasa (and no one cut the veins). there was another coupling, this military, when in 1990 gorbashev sent a russian brigade to the gulf war, under the orders of the general schwarzkopf, american. and cnn doesn’t even care about interviewing the armed tovarishes. from there to here are only connections at the level of mafia, not government or armies. maybe the independent investigator mueller, to justify the millions he asks from the justice of department, got up on the right path- but dangerous- poking trump & family’s financial operations through banks sanctioned by the crimean affair and the 1040 not reported by trump during a decade. do anyone think the 2013’s miss universe of st petersburg was a clean and honest event? don’t fuck with me. investigating trump’s business will top down rockefeller and rothschild. that is for what america is made, of a great fraud wrapped in the flag. but the liberal press is already tiring. that’s why the new york time, to vary -or going in reverse- just gets down that the 3-hour morning program of fox (6-9 am), fox & friends, is the most powerful tv show today. trump isn’t only the daily special guest but the producer, publisher and publicist. that’s why he recently attacked his tv counterpart, morning joe, from msnbc. the entertainment mindset is the one that primes the president. so i’m about to believe that even russian research is part of the libretto of our daily reality show.©varela

ATHEIST

matineeesto de la religion tiene su justificacion economica pero no voy a entrar en las cruzadas ni en las guerras del golfo porque entonces me dicen comunista. voy a analizar la teologia. y para eso cojo la de mas rating, la judeocristiana, que tiene el libro mas vendido del planeta. la biblia nos brinda topicos sexuales y violentos a razon de uno por versiculo. a maria la preña el señor, y el señor quema par de ciudades por el relajo que habia en ellas. visto asi, el duro de la biblia es un hijoputa porque maria es casada, pudo escoger una soltera para no deschavar al marido, y en sodoma y gomorra pagaron justos por pecadores. que ademas es un libro machista porque hay una pila de hombres -apostoles todos, buenazos- y una sola virgen. las demas mujeres son putas, arrepentidas o no, no importa, las apedrean, las someten, se confiesan, piden perdon. dejenme decirles que en ese detalle, el coran, el libro sagrado de los musulmanes, es mejor: tiene un solo bacan, mahoma, y 7 mil virgenes! visto asi, se comprende por que los arabes obligan a taparse a sus mujeres: son inmaculadas. mientras las juedocristianas, satas todas, van en tangas, topless o encueradas por las playas. seamos sinceros, nuestro libro sagrado nos desprestigia… me pregunto que hacian 12 varones adultos apretujados en una mesa, bebiendo vino de la misma copa, compartiendo el pan, traicionandose y negandose unos a otros en la ultima cena. eso es mariconeria. por eso los editores de la biblia le quitan pasajes, para venderla mejor. que dejenme decirles que al final, la biblia mas condensada que existe, es una sola hoja de papel que por delante dice ‘one dollar’ y por detras ‘in god we trust’. pero lo mismo pasa con la circumcision. que es eso de cortarle el pellejo a la picha? la mujeres no se cortan nada del bollo. eso es masoquismo. y ademas, va en detrimento del sexo. la cabeza de una pinga, sin prepucio, rozando calzoncillos y pantalones, pierde sensibilidad. pero las religiones nos castigan sexualmente. han visto a los amish? los hombres tienen que llevar barba a lo lincoln y las mujeres, que todas estan buenisimas, visten batilongos negros desde el cuello hasta los tobillos. no hay que ver sino un programa de television que hay, cuando los amish se liberan y se van del campo a la ciudad, se destapan, hacen trios, orgias, beben. yo conoci a una parejita de quakeres, otra religion parecida a los amish, que tenian una venduta en redland, donde despachaban jugo de frutas y verduras, y les iba bien. me hice amigo de ellos. el se da un aire a ben affleck y ella a jessica bel. pero disfrazados asi parecian las urracas parlanchinas. y de pronto algo les paso, les entro el diablo en el cuerpo, dejaron los habitos y se fueron a vivir a brickell. bueno, el se afeito todo, se metio a metrosexual, bisexual, homosexual y todo lo que sea sexual. y anda con su entrenador argentino. y ella con el pelo suelto (antes tenia trenzas) y shorts metidos en las nalgas, se empato con una rubia de ohio y pusieron un salon de masajes en coconut grove donde te meten el dedo en er culo (friccion prostatica le llaman) y te maman, por $100. yo he ido ya 2 veces por el malestar del cuello (y que dios me perdone si voy por otra cosa).©varela

ultima cenathe religion has its economic justification but i won’t enter the crusades or the gulf wars ’cause then they call me communist. i’m going to analyze the theology. and for that i take the highest rated, the judeo-christian, which has the best selling book on the planet. the bible gives us sexual and violent topics at the rate of one per verse. the mary is pregnant by the lord, and the lord burns a pair of cities by the mess that was in them. thus, the tough guy of the bible is a motherfucker since mary is married, could choose a maiden to not insult the husband, and in sodom and gomorrah paid righteous by sinful. which is also a macho book ’cause there’s a bunch of men -all of them, good-natured- and only one virgin. the other women are whores, repenting or not, it doesn’t matter, stoned, submitted, confessed, asking for forgiveness. let me tell you that in that detail, the quran, the sacred book of the muslims, is better: it has a single big guy, muhammad, and 7 thousand virgins! thus, it’s understood why the arabs force their women to be covered up: they’re immaculate. while the judeo-christians, flirty all of them, go in thongs, topless or naked by the beaches. let’s be honest, our sacred book is discrediting us… i woner what were doing 12 adult men squeezed at a table, drinking wine from the same cup, sharing the bread, betraying each other and denying each other at the last supper. that’s faggoness. that’s why the editors of the bible take away passages, to sell it better. let me tell you that at the end, the most condensed bible that exists, is a single sheet of paper that in front says ‘one dollar’ and in the back ‘in god we trust’. but the same thing happens with circumcision. what is that of cutting off the skin to the prick? the women don’t cut anything from the pussy. that’s masochism. and also, it’s detrimental to sex. the head of a dick, without foreskin, brushing underpants and pants, loses sensitivity. but religions punish us sexually. have you seen the amish? the men have to wear beards as lincoln and the women, who all are hot, go in black cassock from the neck to the ankles. you must watch a television show there, when the amish release themselves and leave the country to the city, they uncover totally, make treesome, orgies, drink. i met a couple of quakeres, another amish-like religion, who had a little greengrocer store in redland, where they poured vegetable fruit juice, and they were doing well. i made friendship with them. he looks like ben affleck and she as jessica bel. but in disguise they looked like the heckle & jeckle magpies. and suddenly something happened to them, the devil entered in their bodies, they left the habits and went to live at brickell. well, he shaved all the body, he went to metrosexual, bisexual, homosexual and everything that’s sexual. and lives with his argentine coach. and she lets her hair loose (before she had braids) and with shorts tucked in the buttocks, dates a blonde from ohio and both put a massage room in coconut grove where you they put their fingers up your ass (they call that, prostatic friction) and suck you, for $100. i’ve already gone twice for the discomfort of the neck (and god forgive me if i go for something else).©varelaSIGNATURE

TRUMP BOY SCOUT

trump boy scoutel lunes trump le discursea a 45 mil boy scouts y, sin libreto, dice boberias propias de una mente disociada: su victoria de noviembre pasado, la manera de ganar estados, que el voto electoral es dificil (lo gano el) pero el voto popular es facil (lo gano hillary), que si recuerdan ese dia, gran dia, lo lindo que se veian los mapas en rojo y azul donde la mayoria era roja. parece el führer ante las juventudes hitlerianas. el martes en 3 tuits da una orden al pentagono: no transgenders in the army. al mediodia recibe niños en el jardin de la casa blanca y todos son rubios, expresa lo lindo que es recibir niños de todas partes del pais, pero no hay negros, ni hispanos, ni asiaticos, ni arabes, parecen daneses pero ni siquiera los perros gran danes, que son blancos con manchas negras. el miercoles ataca de nuevo al fiscal general sessions preguntando por que no investiga a hillary por los emails y por que no destituye al director del fbi (antiguo subdirector) pues su esposa apoyo a hillary. aparentemente el fiscal del pais debe actuar como abogado personal del presidente o una especie de laurenti beria (jefe de la gpu de stalin) arrestando y condenando adversarios politicos. entonces sucede lo inevitable, el jueves sale otro trump. el clon. su nuevo jefe de comunicaciones, scaramucci, ademas de copiar sus gestos manuales, tuitea conflictivamente. ataca al jefe de personal de la casa blanca y antiguo director del partido republicano, priebus, diciendo que es el filtrador del gobierno. horas despues quita el tuit, pero cuando cnn le pregunta, contesta que priebus diga si es el filtrador o no. y explica que hay gente dentro del gobierno que cree que su mision es rescatar al pais, de trump. pero el caos del gobierno es el resultado del jefe que tiene. los funcionarios se desmoralizan, se atacan unos a otros, y los trepadores como scaramucci encuentran su oportunidad. tal vez al tycon le funciona bien la organizacion trump, el hotel trump, el campo de golf trump, el miss universo trump y el casino trump… pero no el gobierno trump. se demuestra, una vez mas, que un pais democratico no se puede administrar como una empresa privada o dirigir como un campamento militar. se requiere de una dosis compleja, mezcla de tolerancia, comprension y sabiduria. es decir: armonia. que solo se logra al trabajar en equipo.©varela
speech1on monday trump gives an speech to 45 thousand boy scouts and, without a libretto, he says silliness from a dissociated mind: his victory of last november, the way of winning states, that the electoral vote is difficult (he won it) but the popular vote it’s easy (earned by hillary), that if they remember that day, big day, how beautiful the red and blue maps were where the majority was red. seems the führer speaking to the hitler youth. tuesday, in 3 tweets gives an order to the pentagon: no transgenders in the army. at noon he receives children in the garden of the white house and all are blond, he expresses how nice it’s to receive children from all parts of the country, but there are no blacks, hispanics, nor asiatics, or arabs, they look danish but not even great dane dogs, which are white with black spots. wednesday again attacks the attorney general sessions asking why he doesn’t investigate hillary for emails and why he doesn’t dismiss the director of the fbi (former deputy director) ’cause his wife supported hillary. apparently the country’s prosecutor must act as the president’s personal lawyer or a sort of lavrenti beria (chief of the stalin gpu) arresting and condemning political opponents. then the inevitable happens, on thursday another trump comes out. the clone. his new chief of communications, scaramucci, in addition to copying his hand gestures, does conflicting tweets. attacks the white house chief of staff and former republican party director, priebus, saying he’s the government’s leaker. hours later he removes the tweet, but when cnn asks, he answers that priebus says if he’s the leaker or not. and explains that there are people inside the government who believe that their mission is to rescue the country from trump. but the chaos of the government is the result of the boss who has. officials are demoralized, they attack each other, and climbers like scaramucci find their chance. maybe the tycon works well with the trump organization, the trump hotel, the trump golf course, the trump miss universe and the trump casino… but not the trump government. it proves, once again, that a democratic country can not be run as a private enterprise or lead as a military camp. it requires a complex dose, a mixture of tolerance, understanding and wisdom. that’s to say: harmony. which is only achieved when working as a team.©varelaspeech2

ENTRISALE / COMINGS AND GOINGS

DISSENTOURla payasita vuela a cuba por cuarta vez desde que vino a miami con su familia a descansar de la represion. y cuando regresa, las autoridades cubanas le quitan el pasaporte y la retienen en el aeropuerto. ella tuitea alegando abuso, represion (pobrecita, que vino a descansar de la represion). el caso es que, me cuenta un amigo de boyeros, la payasita tenia estampadas todas las paginas del pasaporte, ya no habia donde poner un cuño de vuelo. entonces procedieron a agregarle una hoja adicional, pegada al final. eso demoro unas 6 horas por la burocracia, la falta de cuño, de la almohadilla del tintero, el cambio de turno del que pone el cuño, la escasez de papel. de todas formas en miami la consideran una heroina. hace poco el dietista fariñas hablo sobre esto del pasoteo por terminales aereas. ante tanto viaje, el opositor sugirio que el millaje de vuelo no era patriotismo, y que para mantener el estatus de opositor, todo disidente debe permanecer en la isla al menos 9 meses y estar solo 3 meses afuera. eso lo veo correcto. porque ya esto es un relajo tan grande que el anticastrismo de hoy recibe nombretes: dissentour®, jet-opposition, airport conspirators. parece que todos se viciaron con marti, que vivio mucho tiempo fuera de cuba y mayormente en estados unidos. lo que pasa es que el apostol en 1895 iba con 10 mil dolares en el bolsillo (275 mil hoy), de las colectas de los tabaqueros de tampa y cayo hueso para la guerra de independencia, pero andaba con los zapatos rotos. mientras esta gente se la pasa en el mall las americas y bayside. de todas formas la payasita tiene una extension en su pasaporte. puede seguir viajando, seguir descansando de la represion y luchando por la libertad de cuba.©varela
SIGNATUREthe payasita (paya daughter) flies to cuba for the fourth time since she came to miami with her family to rest from repression. and when she returns, cuban authorities remove her passport and hold her at the airport. she tweeted alleging abuse, repression (little poor girl, who came to rest from repression). the fact is that, a friend from boyeros told me, the payasita had stamped all the pages of the passport, there was no space to put a flight stamp. then they proceeded to add an additional sheet, attached to the end. that takes about 6 hours for the bureaucracy, the lack of ink, the inker pad, the change of shift that puts the stamp, the scarcity of paper. anyway in miami they consider her a hero. recently, the dietician fariñas spoke about this of the coming and going by aerial terminals. in front of so much trip, the opponent suggested that the flight mileage wasn’t patriotism, and that to maintain the status of opponent, any dissident must remain on the island for at least 9 months and be only 3 months out. that’s correct. ’cause this is already a great deal of mocking that today’s anti-castroism receives nicknames: dissentour®, jet-opposition, airport conspirators. it seems that everyone got addicted to marti, who lived a long time outside of cuba and mostly in the united states. what happens is that the apostle in 1895 went with 10 thousand dollars in the pocket (275 thousand today), from the collections of the tobacco workers of tampa and key west for the war of independence, but he walked with broken shoes. while these people are passing all the time in the mall las americas and bayside. anyway the payasita has an extension in his passport. can continue traveling, disassociating from the repression and fighting for the freedom of cuba.©varela

IT’S MAGIC


alla en cuba conoci al mago de circo, que sacaba el conejo del sombrero. pero los viejos me contaban del mejor ilusionista que ha dado cuba, el gran dary, que por alla por los 40s llega tarde al acto con la gente protestando. cuando aparece en escena dice: menos mal que llego a tiempo, son las 10! del publico le abuchean porque son las 11. el showman dice: pero miren sus relojes! la audiencia consulta sus rejoles y son las 10. acto seguido el mago se baja del escenario porque ya son las 11, hora de terminar su acto (y ese fue su performance). tratan de explicar como lo hizo. sugestion colectiva, hipnosis general, leyenda. algunos sugieren que el gran dary usaba palas, o sea, gente entre el publico. entonces algunos gritaron la hora y muchos se sugestionaron, donde eran las 11 vieron las 10. el caso es que cuando llego a estados unidos me encuentro con david copperfield, que desaparece la estatua de la libertad y saca al titanic del fondo del mar. efectos especiales de la television, ya ni siquiera de sus manos ni nuestra mente. despues, en los 90s, veo otro mago mas original, david blaine, que camina por las calles topando con gente comun para que hacer su magia. pero nada es real, ni el publico (asi que para que hablar de la levitacion y las 72 horas enterrado). los magos siguen siendo los mismos desde houdini, que se tiraba al hudson encadenado con la llave del candado en su barriga para vomitarla en el fondo… hasta los que cortan a su mujer por la mitad con una sierra en el intermedio del superbowl. empero… esta mujer, ursula martinez, subdita britanica, cambio la magia.©varela

SIGNATUREback in cuba i met the circus magician, who took the rabbit out of the hat. but the old ones told me about the best illusionist that cuba has given, el gran dary, that there for the 40s arrives late to the act with the people protesting. when he appears on stage he says: good thing i’m early, it’s 10!. the audience booed him because it’s 11. the showman says: but look at your watches! the audience consults their watches and it’s 10. then the magician gets off the stage ’cause it is already 11, time to finish his act (and that was his performance). they try to explain how he did it. collective suggestion, general hypnosis, legend. some say that el gran dary used helpers, that is, people among the public. then some shouted the hour and many were moved, where it was 11 saw 10. the fact is that when i arrive in the united states i meet david copperfield, who disappears the statue of Liberty and takes out the titanic from the bottom of the sea. special effects of television, not even from his hands or our mind. then, in the 90s, i see another more original magician, david blaine, who walks the streets bumping into common people to do his magic. but nothing is real, not even the public (so not to talk about the levitation and 72 hours buried). the magicians remain the same since houdini, who was jumping on the hudson chained with the key of the padlock in his belly to vomit it in the bottom… even those who cut his wife in half with a saw in the middle of the superbowl. however… this woman, ursula martinez, british citizen, changes the magic.©varela
