Hiatus

This blog has been registering moments, opinions and important stuff for almost 2 years now.
Over that time it brought me joy, new aquiantances, new friends, motivation to write, and also problems. But I always considered it an important part of my daily routine, and I care for it with as much interest and professionalism as any personal project I bring to life.

Right now I truly feel I don’t have the time nor the energy to make justice to this little spot. Sometimes in life you gotta make choices, set priorites straight, and put good things to an end so that they don’t turn into rotten apples or some kind of burdens. Juicy Records right now is my main project, other projects are coming, my life is completely to define…so although I could always keep posting stuff over here randomly, like some reviews once in a while and videos and shit, I feel this blog deserves more than that average attention. And since I can’t deliver it, I’d rather just put it to sleep.

So today I announce that WALKtheWalk is on an hiatus.
I’m not calling it quits, cause I really think I can relight it someday, but I’m saying goodbye for now. Thank you so much to everyone who’s been following, commenting, showing me love…it has meant the world to me that people care to read what I had to say and show.
To all my fellow bloggers, don’t you dare stop posting cause I still read you whenever I get the chance.

Peace.

No Peace of Mind

I’m cheating on this post cause it’s being written after the Hiatus one, but being published on an earlier date. Fuck it.

This was the second time I wrote a complete lyric since the days of Bulletproof, and also the second time I wrote something that’s now being used by another band, sang by another person. The first time was for Never Fail, with “Living Fast”.

This one was written for my friends Cold Blooded, and was thought specifically for them, so although I ended up writing something a bit personal, I still tried to put in their own flavor to it.

Momma once told me
“Money will bring you greater things in life”
Fuck it, I can’t agree
More money more strife
It only stays gold until the turn of the tide
Lost out of love, lost out of sight
These scars they burn these scars they bite
These scars they keep me up through the night

The road is fucked, so enjoy the ride
Maybe the grass is greener on the other side
BUT I STILL CAN’T GET NO PEACE OF MIND

These bitches they all want the lust, the fucking goodlife
Sharp teeth and flesh cutting knifes
Said it before: more money, more strife
Eyes on the price, never get behind
BUT I STILL CAN’T GET NO PEACE OF MIND

They are now playing this song live as “No Peace of Mind” (or at least I think that’s what they decided to call it), and I think it’s their best song to date. Kizz did an awesome job adapting my lyrics, and he doesn’t sing this complete version, but still it’s very complete. To everyone diggin’ the band already, now you have the chance to sing-along to this one too on a next show.

A Boy Brushed Red…

“Can you feel your heart beat racing?
Can you taste the fear in her sweat?
You’ve done this wrong, it’s too far gone
These sheets tell of regret
I admit that I’m just a fool for you
I’m just a fool for you

Here is where we both go wrong

Tonight’s your last chance to do exactly what you want to do
And this could be my night, this is what makes me feel alive
Makes you feel alive

Here is where we both go wrong
So tie me up and toss this key ’cause for now we’re living

In this moment that we both ignore the truth
It’s all over
It’s all over
I feel your heart against mine
So take a breath and close your eyes, eyes

Your lungs have failed and they’ve both stopped breathing
My heart is dead it’s way past beating
Something has gone terribly wrong
I’m scared, you’re scared, we’re scared of this
I never thought we’d make it out alive
I never told you but it’s all in your goodbyes
(Its all in your goodbyes)”

JR #01: NEVER FAIL & PxHxT – Split 7″

Two different bands, the same record, 6 new tracks.

There was no better way to officialy start a record label intended to have no barriers, than with a record that mixes styles, sonorities and messages. NEVER FAIL and PxHxT prove in this record that what matters the most is people, leaving differences on the background and uniting themselves with Juicy to release a threesome record, but with a single idea. Crossover baby.

Once upon a time, I made a post about being fired.
For those who ain’t gonna bother to click on the link, one of the phrases that ended my post was “Bottom line: I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

Tonight, I visited Ana’s blog almost randomly, and a “giant” text caught my attention while browsing through her latest posts.

The text was Ana’s way of recovering her dignity and expose a fucked up situation. In a way, I related to what happened to her, and while reading her words I noticed the same pride and the same ambition that I had on my own post several months ago.

Not everyone has to be strong and mentally focused on everything they want to achieve in life, but let her post serve as a wake-up call to everyone enduring tons of shit everyday just to get some lousy euros at the end of the month. Don’t you ever let anyone treat you as an inferior human being just because they are your hierarquical working superiors. Fuck that, no money pays for dignity or happiness.

Over

Festroia is over.

In these 10 days I got to hang out with lots of friends that I now almost only see in the festival, I had a full working birthday, I’ve lost weight, I’ve slept about 4/5 hours a day, but most of all, I feel like once again I did my job like no one else could do.

I feel tired but also very prideful.
This year I was really surprised for having so many people coming up to me and complimenting my job, not only people from the audience but guests from the festival…actors, directors…even other film festival directors were astonished with my translation skills and my easygoing attitude on stage, they could tell the difference in what I did, the ambition and the professionalism, even without a shirt and a tie, and that is probably the best reward I can ever get for all the stress.

Drake’s song is not really new, but it kinda reflects my state of mind today…sometimes I don’t know what am I doing, but I guess that, for better or worse, I’ll always do me.

Dead Weight

“(…)
I was born a fortunate son
But I learned early on if you want to live you got to suffer,
you got to be willing to bleed
I was born a fortunate son
But I learned early on if you want to live you got to suffer,
you got to be willing to die
Empty handed…
I go day to day with a chip on my shoulder I cannot shake
For a generation of leeches who seem to think that life owes them something more than a right to breathe
Life owes me nothing but a cold deep grave and a promise to never wake me up when I close my eyes let me close my eyes
Please let me close my eyes”

RuinerDead Weight

One of the most underrated bands, with great lyrics.
