9. NO COVID

Apparently, Earth is the only planet in the Solar Sytem to harbor life (😊) and, therefore, the only in the same planet park to host some coronavirus (😔). That’s… sad.
I’d rather have Uranus in a crazy orbit any given Sunday. Or Venus’s s#itty methane fest on the side of my daily morning cereal.
They’re both COVID-free.
Just like… The Moon!

so no lockdown, right?


“look at this TikTok thing!”, “Nope, I’d rather kill myself. Live on Instagram, follow me!”

So, “on their way to the ring”… Gen X, Gen Y and Millennials. Who da better? I dunno and I’m kinda conflicted by it

IDEOLOGIES

There’s none whatsoever, to none of these groups, or so called ‘categories’, for the folks at Mountain View or Palo Alto or whatever. One thing unites them: über-qualification, preparation and, theoretically, pro and creativity.

I’ve seen nobody from the 1920s being called a primordial or Gen S (or any other pseudo-antropo-social-BS term for that matter) and succeeding or failing big-time. They probably didn’t need that. And yet… there were Bukowski, Pope JP II, Charlie Parker.

All of them are…


Even as a part time gig. These are the GOAT professions for men and women around the Planet. Spoiler alert: Ninja is one of them.

10. NINJA

Shut up. #ninjasatwork

I dunno if Ninjas are a thing of the past — we don’t see many Ninjas around, both human and in teenage mutant turtle form; that’s shameful if I might add — or if they’ll trend somewhere in the future, but what we know is this:

> Good payroll

9. SPY


Lowest common denominator. Promiscuity. Right wing ideology. Church n’ Christ above anything. BS, bling and pizazz. It’s just useless all-around, really…

Portugal is a lovely country all-around but it has its ‘foes’. In the same way one could say Texas and Alabama are different States from the US of Big A, Cascais likes to think it sits apart from all the ‘others’ around it.

All I’ll try to say, in fewer words you might expect, is that Cascais is no better than Palhais or Grimancelos.

Cascais is just… Cascais. Just like Birmingham will be Birmingham, AL. And Austin remains Austin, TX.

Welcome to Cascais!!!


Roger. Floyd. Cristiano. Lionel. Tiger. Even Cheat Lance or Rafa and Nole. Why new talent struggles. And the old school will rule for years to come.

I have two childhood heroes when it comes to sports and none kick the ball for a living:

Ayrton


It’s been a crazy ride — with no foreseeable next stop — but I think there’s actually some positive stuff we can retain from this whole thing. List on!

10. Time to yourself


First off, you have to listen to something like this in order to proceed

Anime and animated movies. From Dragonball to Batman, what gives? Here are 10 choices in case you wanna dive into crazy plots, crazier characters and the most epic and awesome of Japanese and American fights

10. Dragonball, from the 1st to Kai and beyond

Nevertheless, Goku is not a story of hard work. I mean, it can be, but it’s also a hymn to camaraderie, comedy, love, friendly love, lovely friendships, basically, the whole package. World building, comic relief characters and truly outstanding fights are also a trademark.

The Portuguese dubbed version is a masterclass in terms of extracting the best the show had to offer


Why haven’t we spawned something with the likes and gravitas of La Casa de Papel?…

Awesome history full of plot twists. Hardcore couch potatoes with great storytelling skills. Creative and proactive as your next Zhan Yiming or Brad ‘Nazi’ Parscale. Someone with a paid access to the Internet tries to answer these and more questions.

PORTUGUESE COMPANIES NEVER FORESAW THE ARRIVAL OF “YOU DON’T SEE THE TV SHOW, THE TV SHOW SEES YOU” ERA


Yes, it’s easier to watch it on youtube. But it’s also a 3min read so shut up!

10. T’CHALLA vs KILLMONGER, FINAL BATTLE

We had all the tension leading up to it. The storytelling ranks among the best weaved pieces of scriptwriting in the MCU. Aaand… the digital team screwed it up. Kudos for trying though.

One of Marvel’s best movies? Check!

#shame

9. RAGNA THOR VS RAGNA HULK


“Cuspidos e escarrados”. A expressão não é minha, é dum bimbo qualquer. Que não é doutor nem engenheiro. A verdade é esta e não há História nem CMTV que contradigam o óbvio: somos uns chanchos e… talvez não seja assim tão mau como isso.

AO MENOS NÃO SOMOS
