I love you from the depths of my heart,

And nothing here will tear us apart,

Everything's beautiful with you,

Everything's beautiful when you invade my life,

And I'm living just to say that I LOVE YOU.

Concert with the Orchestra I'm in!

Hello, and Happy New Year to everyone!
Well, this is a video of a concert that was given by the Orchestra I'm on the 13th of September of this year, 2009 (for those who don't know it, I play the violin). It was in the Basilica of Guadalupe. I hope you like it. The blog of the Orchestra (which name is "Orquesta de Cámara Juvenil de Buenos Aires") is: www.orquestadecamarajuvenilbsas.blogspot.com

My opinion

This is my opinion about the videos we were supposed to talk to in the chat session with the children from La Plata. As the chat session couldn't be done, I'll only write my own opinion about this topic.
The idea these videos are trying to transmit is that unnecessary plastic surgeries tend to ruin people, instead of making them look more beautiful.
My idea about beauty is that it is relative: a person may look beautiful to me, but not to everyone. Slimness is not a beautiful thing to my eyes. I mean, a girl obviously looks prettier in a bikini if she's thin, but I don't see why people think that really thin girls are more beautiful than normal ones. Apart from that, as we can see in the first video, beauty has not only to do with slimness and being 90-60-90, but to the way we look at other people, the expression of our faces and our personality. I could add that people's opinion about beauty is always changing. For example, 'til 1600 or 1700 men considered fat girls beautiful and thin girls ill people. So, the point is: Why should we be changing our shape because of what people think?!
In my own case, I've never liked a "really cool boy", the one that all the girls want. And I don't think it is because I've got a bad taste, I think it's because I don't have the same ideas of beauty that they have.
I do agree with the commercial message. I think commercials are a really important influence when buying products. We usually think "But maybe this shampoo is better than the other one, because the girl in the commercial says that...". And it's true, people tend to believe that what companies say in the ads is true. In my case, I don't feel very influenced by commercials, I like reading what the bottle of shampoo or what the bag of crisps say.
I think adolescents are the most influenced part of the society by commercials. This is because we don't normally know what we do, and we're very vulnerable. The world in which we were born is difficult to live in, and adolescents only want to fit well with the rest of the society. Here is when stereotypes play their part.
I think commercials should be more realistic. A woman with a hair that looks as if it was made of plastic can't convince many people. The same happens with yoghurts that "make you thinner". The only thing that does not make you gain weight to you is water. So if you want to eat, feel free :)
I think the government should be tougher when regulating advertising, because many commercials may make some people feel wrong about theirselves because they're not "as good as the person that appears in them". Stereotypes are bad, and people should know it.

I love this song, I think it shows how people live wars very well. And the guy who goes to fight is only an adolescent, who will never return to his home with his girlfriend. Wars don't solve any problem, but in some cases they only solve overpopulation problems, of course, in a dramatic way.

My Inmortal - Evanescence

This is a very beautiful song, but the video is a bit sad. This singer, Amy Lee, has a really beautiful voice. If you like this song, I recommend you to listen to another of her songs, like Hello or Lithium.
Hope you like it =)
