Before moving, I went through some piles of papers and found a couple of pieces with the note “Love is not enough”. I am pretty sure they were notes I took from a book of Mark Manson (likely The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck – I need to re-read) And somehow this morning, I got this video in youtube.
Love is not enough:
- Love doesnt equal compatibility: Love is emotional. Compatibility is logical
- Love doesnt solve your relationship problems (amen)
- Love is not always worth sacrificing yourself: Dont tolerate behaviours in your partner that you wouldn’t do with your best friend. A loving relationship is supposed to supplement your individual identity, not damage it or repace it.
The only way you can fully enjoy the love in your life is to choose to make something else more important than love.
Friendship > Love
In my case, I dont really think about love but companionship. I think too many times about that “perfect” companion to go through life (good and bad moments). And then I am very solitary person (it gets worse with age). And then you are not sociable, and many things you read tell you that having a strong social support is critical in mental health, life satisfaction, etc. So it is like in the middle of two paths.
Good concert of NIN.
I really want to try one day access the darkweb. No idea if this video is good but could be a starting point.
Unrelated, I am trying to get better at playing chess (extremely slowly if any progress). This video is amazing. And learn Go some day… (as usual no enough time)
Me vuelve loco esta session.
I was surprised today reading this blog entry. Watching the video, it reminds me to techno, so it is good. And reading further his bio in wikipedia, I was really impressed with his persona, political/social effort and music. And somehow, I noticed there was a movie about him, I am pretty sure I have seen the ad somewhere but as usual, I normally ignore the movies.
I dont believe in those hall of fame things, but definitely I would put Tina, RATM and Fela.
Today I came across a video (not recent) about Cristian Varela (strange there is no Wikipedia entry about him). He is one of my favourite techno DJs and a legend in the Spanish Techno scene. I learnt a couple of things from that video, he is the son of a famous Spanish actor, he is working in different projects apart from “just” techno gigs and production, and he went through a sharp drop in his career but he is back (how important is to have good people around…)
As somebody very wise told me: “Techno always makes friends”
Here two massive sessions: percussion and tokyo
