Famosas que niegan sus cirugías por más evidentes que sean
Ser bella es el objetivo de la mayoría de las mujeres, incluso, si esa belleza no es natural y se puede obtener de formas artificiales.
Querer ser una mejor versión de uno mismo, no debe ser motivo de pena, sin embargo, las siguientes famosas no lo entienden y prefieren negar una y otra vez lo evidente, antes de reconocer que su envidiable físico, recibió la ayuda de un cirujano plástico:
Kylie Jenner

https://preview.redd.it/cu3gsowbqrs31.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=03d774baf89d3980da07708630b0924f8135de1e
La reina del lip kit tardó meses en aceptar que se había inyectado los labios y alegaba que el volumen era producto de combinar varios productos para labios, al final no le quedó más que aceptarlo y con base en ello, crear su imperio millonario de cosméticos.
Hoy en día, tampoco acepta que tiene aumento de senos, implante de glúteos, se afiló la barbilla y modificó por completo la forma de su rostro. Eso sí, su cirujano ha triplicado su fortuna usandola como publicidad, ya que como todos vimos en KUWTK ella era el patito feo de la familia.
Bella Hadid

https://preview.redd.it/v7ptfywpqrs31.jpg?width=583&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9bc1a8c2186efd96127a8b5a2c5f9d4ae21deaae
La top model siempre fue alta y delgada, sin embargo, su rostro era muy diferente a como lo conocemos hoy en día, entre las cirugías más evidentes que lleva encima son: bichectomia, ácido hialurónico en los labios, cirugía de párpados y rinoplastia. En más de una ocasión, ella ha explicado que todos los cuerpos funcionan diferente con ejercicio y que no podría someterse a cirugías porque le teme a las cicatrices, sin embargo, su rostro habla por sí solo.
Kim Kardashian

https://preview.redd.it/8e9vor2hqrs31.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=88f07933d5adb74a652b2b26d2109ff2c5409c66
Ella niega haberse sometido a un aumento de gluteos y de senos, sin embargo, aunque siempre tuvo curvas, no son nada comparadas con las que vemos en sus fotos de hoy en día, ya que es poco probable que alguien llegue a esas dimensiones de trasero de forma natural.
Megan Fox

https://preview.redd.it/ljz11qsjqrs31.jpg?width=944&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=1c63e10aa210a733076c8b49a98418e3d7fdcd24
Siempre niega haberse colocado botox en el rostro, no obstante, es evidente que su rostro es una víctima del exceso de cirugías, incluso, también se hizo una rinoplastia y se aumentó los labios.
Si bien, todas ellas son hermosas no es sano que oculten sus cirugías, debido a que imponen estándares de belleza demasiado altos para sus seguidores, quienes se deprimen por no nacer con esos privilegios.

2019.08.02 01:03 gowiththeflora Free women's and baby patterns and tutorials

I wanted to share Oh Mother Mine DIY's website with you, it has tons of free patterns for women's and baby clothes! This is her youtube channel where you will find detailed instructions for every pattern. The only downside is that they're in Spanish but if you have a some sewing experience they shouldn't be too hard to follow.
She doesn't post any pictures of her modeling the garments (she did it in her older videos but not anymore), which is a bit annoying because you can't see how they actually fit. I decided to go ahead and try some patterns out, I have made this top and this dress and they turned out very well (I'll post pictures when I have a bit more time).
I've been almost a year without a sewing machine because I moved abroad temporarily and it doesn't make sense for me financially to buy one (plus fabric here is a lot more expensive than in my home country). I miss sewing so much so I come to this subreddit from time to time to live vicariously through you haha. Well, I hope you find this useful! It makes me happy to help other sewists/seamstresses find free patterns!

2019.02.11 00:53 LordDeathScum Degradation of state

I live currently in Maracaibo, Zulia (its in venezuela) and wanted to explain various issues that affect our daily lives. And the continuous collapse of our society.
If you want i can start anywhere and with facts and in some accounts first hand experience! Because in reddit people seem to have the misconception that it is only "a propaganda attack" and maduro is in a way "legitimate".Both total bullshit. Why you ask? well he cheated and the program that runs the elections. He used Smartmatic the main program that supervises and recollects the votes of the venezuelan people .The company admits That the latest series of elections were a sham, This system has been in the venezuelan election system for a long time so There is a strong possiblity That various elections of the Venezuelan people Might have been rigged.
Elections-Contradictions
Of course they only admitted the latest frauds because they want to implement this election system in other country's.
https://www.google.com/amp/www.el-nacional.com/amp/noticias/politica/smartmatic-denuncia-manipulacion-eleccion-constituyente_196658 https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://es.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smartmatic&ved=2ahUKEwj0loLd1K7gAhXGslkKHYOeCdIQFjAAegQIAxAB&usg=AOvVaw3tY6xKh5vm6UFRAN3fLsBn
Hell few people support maduro on an international level, but very few seem to be Venezuelans.
You can find a lot of similar videos like this online. https://www.instagram.com/p/BttUNhEAtzk/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=1wvbo88wel3eo
https://es.scribd.com/document/398636469/Hercon-81-9-de-venezolanos-reconoce-a-Juan-Guaido-como-primer-mandatario-de-Venezuela#from_embed
81.9% of consulted partys agree that juan guaido is their president.
Size of sample: 999 Voters Method of Recolection: Telephone Test Subjects: Population male or Female over 18 years old % of error =3.4%
https://es.scribd.com/document/373114761/Resultados-Encuesta-Meganalisis-Venezuela-Febrero-2018-Prest-Corta
a lot later but still relevant with info on population Poll Moderater: MegaAnalisis total population: 1.090 Process of choseing population: Random male and female population Chosen at random one consultation per house hold.
79.5% percent of the people asked want Nicolas maduro to leave. 80.7% of the population did not trust the presidential elections that was going on. 80.2% Did not agree that Maduro should rerun for presidential election again
Of the oposition what members do you least trust: Henry falcon won with 30% (noted that he was the oposition in the presidential election)
As you can see the general overview is that The great majority of the Venezuelan people agree that Juan Guaido is our elected president, For americans i know how hard it is to grasp the idea of how it is done but for the eyes of the Venezuelan It was out there for the crowd to see.
The CNE is the Consejo Nacional Electoral the ruling body that oversees the Elections of the venezuelan people
IT HAS TO BE AN IMPARTIAL BODY DUE TO THE FACT THAT IT OVERSEES NATIONAL ELECTIONS. IT HAS ITS OWN JURISDICTION IN 1997 LAWS WERE MADE TO MAKE IT THE ABSOLUTE BODY TO SUPERVISE ELECTIONS.
The president of the CNE by law for a clean election has to have no political inclination and mantain itself neutral obviously
Since 2003 Since Fransico Carrasquero (2003-2004) Every appointed CNE ruler has had tendencies to support chavez, Carrasquero being the least known. He held the position since 2003-2004 have nither been Impartial Nor FAIR.
Fransico Carrasquero implemented the Famous Smartmatic a software automatic system that counted the votes of the Venezuelan Population for elections. Who later became a puppet for chavez in the tribunal supremo de justicia in 2008 (totally impartial)
https://elpais.com/diario/2008/09/19/internacional/1221775204_850215.html
With Jorge Rodriguez as Rector principal during Carrasqueros era, who later became president of CNE during 2005. Then he became in 2007 Vice-President of Hugo Chavez (conflict of interest)
After that Tibisay Lucena comes in She was rector principal during Jorge rodriguez era, After this she mantained a monopoly on the election system being president form 2006-2019.
WHAT!!! a total monopoly for so many years.... yes, and you wonder why the polls say that venezuelan do not trust the venezuelan election system.
Who is The MUCH HATED TIBISAY LUCENA?
A sociologist and know sympathizerof the left since her years in the university and right now living with luxury thanks to the goverment. https://dolartoday.com/entre-viajes-y-lujos-conoce-la-buena-vida-socialista-de-las-mujeres-del-chavismo/
So how do you Win a race where they chose the winner, even before the race starts? The polls never worked on a Venezuelan Election
I always remember stalin's quote when i think about our Venezuelan Elections

I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how.

NATIONAL SITUATION
Ok hmmm where do i even start to describe the dire situation my country is in? Lets make a massive review from what i've read, seen from accounts of friends, and the news ( because of course as a dictator you never want the real news to leak out).
CENSORSHIP
He shuts down the local news with conatel (goverment information supervition agency) daily to make sure, or a at least try to cover the truth from being know to the general population.
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://ipysvenezuela.org/2018/07/01/emisoras-en-vilo-conatel-cerro-40-estaciones-en-2017-por-motivos-de-censura/&ved=2ahUKEwifg-7V0q7gAhWnt1kKHVAtBYgQFjAAegQIAxAB&usg=AOvVaw0AZCbVMgP5E07OjB09rTyy
Sadly one of my favourite talk shows was also shut down due to the radio station being censored to conatel.
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.ntn24.com/america-latina/venezuela/conatel-cerro-una-de-las-emisoras-de-radio-mas-escuchada-del-zulia-953-fm%3Famp&ved=2ahUKEwifg-7V0q7gAhWnt1kKHVAtBYgQFjABegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw0MOIcCzXeXXC-2pDSf7ccp&cf=1
MEDICINE/ HEALTH SITUATION
well I can talk of this from first hand experience because my girlfriend is working en el hospital del universitario. A structure that was resembled to be a model of a Canadian hospital ( well legend says it was like this hell they say that the company they paid was to resemble a canadian hospital )
https://es.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hospital_Universitario_de_Maracaibo
Do you know we have regular blackouts? ohh but not your normal black outs. 2 hour programmed black outs and sometimes, non-programmed black outs. Or sometimes 8 hour long blackouts.
Imagine my girlfriend ventilating a 10 year old kid and taking turns with another doctor because of the failing electrical system.
http://efectococuyo.com/la-humanidad/mas-de-ocho-horas-duro-primer-apagon-general-en-el-estado-zulia-en-2019/
http://cronica.uno/mi-nieto-no-tenia-problemas-del-corazon-fallo-la-luz-eso-fue-lo-que-paso/
That is if there is a doctor! i mean there are in some hospitals, but not all of them. My GF is super overworked due to the lack of staff because of the Exodus Doctor have been fleeing the country. Sometimes coming home crying from the conditionas she is working in, I admire her dedication but it is messed up to have to see on a daily basis people dieing From soemthing that is preventable.
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.el-nacional.com/noticias/sociedad/personal-clinicas-maracaibo-disminuyo_254864&ved=0ahUKEwiX_bvzyK7gAhUOnlkKHYonAe8QqQIIOigBMAU&usg=AOvVaw3IE8fipzCIigGGBznyzzxf https://www.instagram.com/p/BtrA6Z1ACae/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=zbr935r26k5p
Or if you have reactive (chemicals not sure what to call it) to be able to do any required medical test. Of course this varies from time to time. But 90% of the time you will not be able to do the medical tests you need. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.panorama.com.ve/ciudad/Especialista-Escasez-de-reactivos-es-de-95-en-hospitales-20180820-0026.html&ved=0ahUKEwiX_bvzyK7gAhUOnlkKHYonAe8QqQIIQCgBMAc&usg=AOvVaw2OZrDLc-wZZ9zME7EfB_3y
FOOD/HUNGEFAMINE
Lets talk about the food issues that there seems to be a misconception, yes there is food. But very expensive to the average Venezuelan due to that fact that we import everything you wonder why? well here we go!
lets go to the main area were us Venezuelans mostly suffer FOOD. This is the biggest concern for the average venezuelan household: will i e able to feed my family today?. Food production in the country is a huge problem, and not everyone suffers from it that is false even i admit it. Thank god never have but my diet has really changed from semi expensive items (like sasuage,Candy , peperoni you get the picture) to just the basic foods. https://www.google.com/amp/s/elpais.com/elpais/2018/02/23/inenglish/1519384349_718243.amp.html https://www.reuters.com/article/us-venezuela-food/venezuelans-report-big-weight-losses-in-2017-as-hunger-hits-idUSKCN1G52HA
Essentially the poor and middle class are skipping meals, the nutrition of venezuelans is now based mostly on carbohydrates. Protien is expensive, Maybe the mst expensive thin to buy!
61.2 % OF OUR POPULATION GO TO SLEEP HUNGRY
To give you an idea minimum wage is currently at 19.800. 30 eggs cost at least 8.000bsf . Half a minimum wage of a worker, Imagine that you work just to eat and still dont have enough money to fulfill that. Thousands upon thousands of Venezuelan family's are in this situation and it is unbearable.
But its the goverment fault! WHY you ask and HOW?
Chavez and maduro through the process of expropriation took thousands of productive agricultural farms and made them completly unproductive. http://www.el-nacional.com/noticias/economia/gobierno-expropio-mas-millones-hectareas-estan-improductivas_231096
Hell there were no conditions for the ones they did not expropriate. So the other farmers protested and guess what!? Boom he also took thier lands just for protesting. Of course just to clarify they did not tak all the farms, just the bigest and most important ones. At the hands of the goverment they ruined the production of these stolen lands.
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://es.panampost.com/sabrina-martin/2017/05/23/dictadura-de-venezuela-expropio/amp/&ved=2ahUKEwjV-MyrtIzgAhVFPK0KHVvUCxEQFjAEegQIBBAB&usg=AOvVaw2faPV4ftK6KrDi07e-DKTT&cf=1&cshid=1548538800519
Ok we covered a small issues of the farming territory, I can go on and on. But there is also another Big influential factor of the lack of food creation, they expropriation (siezed) agroislena the biggest provider of seeds and agricultural equipment and took it to the ground.
http://www.el-nacional.com/noticias/economia/revelan-estado-que-quedo-agroislena-tras-expropiacion_18759
They provided close to 100% of the markets demand of corn seeds. Imagine what happens if you ruin it. Yes Hunger and famine.
Ok we went over this aspect ,Lets continue to the process production aspect.
ECONOMY AND NATIONAL SITUATION
Well here a LOT A LOTTTTTT of companys that process food were expropriated, so i will mention some that come off the top of my head. But all of them face the same end: A total complete unproductive Company.
Lacteos los Andes: One of the biggest companys that produced food till chavez expropriated it. Production rates fell 58.5%, this was one of my personal favorite food production companys till it fell to the state. https://www.analitica.com/economia/produccion-de-lacteos-los-andes-cayo-585-luego-de-pasar-a-manos-del-estado-en-2008/
Monaco: A company that provided harina de maiz a staple food of our country not as big as polar but is up there, also produced flour. It was expropiado at 2008 now unproductive a reason of why there are problems with bread and other flour articles.
http://www.infoenlace.net/?p=18778
Now you can observe it was the goverments, due to lack of production !lets go over to some other important venezuelan companys destroyed by the goverment just for a quick economic overview.
PDVSA: wow this company is our pride and joy or at least was. It was our great oil industry. Even though they have not managed to destroy this monster of a company they are in process of destroying.
Well lets start to ask ourselves on of the main reasons it is failing, there is no qualified personal! who is gonna work in a company that pays very little? The capable professionals start to leave.
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.el-nacional.com/amp/noticias/petroleo/trabajadores-pdvsa-huyen-del-pais-por-salario-insuficiente_240658&ved=2ahUKEwjmzsOfqq_gAhXLpFkKHU8dCUEQFjACegQIBhAB&usg=AOvVaw1mLOJ4GSKWAkenWgI0cVTR&cf=1 http://www.laverdad.com/movil/economia/140037-la-crisis-dejan-sin-trabajadores-a-la-golpeada-pdvsa.html
What does this cause in an oil company? Huge and dangerous consequences like the Amuy explosion 42 dead 156 injured. it was one of the biggest oil refinery plants in the country, it actually was one of the main production refinary in gasoline (thats why we have also incurring issues with gasoline.)

Lower Production rates of oil:

Contamination: This one is actually huge, In lake maracaibo the contamination levels are through the roof, affecting heavily on the huge fish industry, look it up.
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.lapatilla.com/2017/04/28/el-lago-de-maracaibo-convertido-en-el-mas-grande-vertedero-contaminado-del-planeta/amp/ https://www.google.com/amp/www.el-nacional.com/amp/noticias/economia/denunciaron-derrame-petroleo-lago-maracaibo_246243 https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.elcorreodelorinoco.com/denuncian-derrame-de-petroleo-lago-maracaibo/amp/
And the most evident Corruption https://www.caracaschronicles.com/2018/04/18/explosive-lawsuit-exposes-corruption-and-mafia-wars-at-pdvsa/
Hell the ex-president of pdvsa has a fortune Rafael Ramirez adn im not even mentioning Maria gabriela chavez, Daughter of Chavez, common soldier expresident turned into Multibillionare. At least some what fishy?

Maduro started criticizing him before the hit, imagine that so im guessing they had a falling out. And how does a suspected murder become the leader of the union? https://m.aporrea.org/endogeno/n237056.htmlllllll https://www.panorama.com.ve/contenidos/2014/06/03/noticia_0046.html https://diariodecaracas.com/que-sucede/periodista-guayana-revela-prontuario-del-gordo-bayon

US sanctions affect Venezuelan Economy
wow how has maduro tried to say that they have affected the economy, since i dont know when. Total and utter lie US sanctions are JUST NOW affecting the economy, all previous US sanctions were affecting the regimens high level officers and goverment officials bank accounts! as you can see the economy collapsed DUE TO MISMANAGEMENT and CORRUPTION.
The US has nothing but affected just now. Plus with at least the other industries i mentioned you have a larger grasp of mismanagement that caused the economic collapse.
I want to highlight a very interesting stat, the venezuelan economy shrunk 50% in the last 5 years, what US sanctions caused that? https://www.dailywire.com/news/43183/watch-british-journalist-destroys-argument-us-ashe-schow https://www.google.com/amp/s/theconversation.com/amp/venezuela-us-sanctions-hurt-but-the-economic-crisis-is-home-grown-111280 https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases/sm583

Maikel moreno president of the Supreme court ex-criminal, WHY AM I NOT SUPRISED!?.

Helicoide
A mall turned into a prison, A torture center for the dissidents of the goverment and opposition. We all fear going there. Here all manners of phiscological and physical torture are going on for people of the opposition, this deserves its own documentary. No Goverment that is considered DEMOCRATIC should hve a TORTURE CENTER.
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/mundo/amp/noticias-america-latina-47005882
Crime rates
Venezuela is not currently in an active war, yet reports of violent deaths are staggering. Various criminal organizations are active around the country.
yet due to massive migration, Even Venezuelan criminals are migrating and the criminal levels have dropped. You can even learn about el tren de Aragua (very famous) el picure confrontation. And members El Catire are even spreading crimes to neighboring peru. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.diariolasamericas.com/america-latina/lider-del-grupo-criminal-el-tren-aragua-detenido-peru-pide-ser-extraditado-venezuela-n4
Murder rates
Its hard to actually have a precise figure due to the fact that the goverment always tries to hide real figures and does not keep a register (because its not slighty convinient for them) 2017 has been reduced from 26.000 deaths , to 23.000 deaths in 2018.
But a lot a factors have changed the increasing tendencies of violence, One factor being the Venezuelan Exodus, the huge number of venezuelans leaving thier contry contributes to the lower number of victims in 2018.
https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKCN1OQ1GJ
Prison System
The prison system does not help at all. Murder is rampant inside the system and corruption is absolute. At times the criminals pay to be released for a while and then return the following day. I mean if you have a narco state all is possible.
There have been literal battles of the army vs the prisoners. These prisoners are able to GET HIGH CALIBER rifles And HAND GRENADES inside prison and on the seets. This is easy information to gain access to, search up Carcel Sabaneta, and Tocoron. There have been occasions where THE ARMY has had to go and kill the due to the fact that the police does not have the fire power to calm the riots.

Venezuelan Exodus
This is something NO ONE can deny. By logic a person who has all his minimum requirements met. Who feels he lives in a functioning society, with a chance of a positive future should want to live in his country.
Then if all the media is inventing lies about the truth of venezuela! THEN WHY? are US venezuelans leaving by the thousands?!
An estimates 3 Million Venezuelans have left Hell my family is split. On my father side we are 9 cousins.

THIS WILL ONLY CONTINUE WITH MADURO IN POWER. Sorry maybe i had to vent but trust me My Venezuela is not in the best of positions right now And i am missing a lot of things just investigate a little and careful what you read.

2018.11.20 02:16 alforo_ La asunción a los cielos de su majestad la reina doña Letizia

El Palacio de la Zarzuela es un recinto que ordenó construir en 1627 el rey Felipe IV a modo de pabellón de caza en el marco incomparable y bucólico del monte del Pardo. Esta es la residencia oficial de los reyes eméritos don Juan Carlos y doña Sofía (que por culpa de las desavenencias del monarca ya no comparten el lecho matrimonial) y su hermana Irene -las infantas lo han abandonado al casarse con prestigiosos varones ejemplo de honorabilidad y honradez - Por lo tanto el reino de España tiene cuatro soberanos que cobran sus respectivos emolumentos, viáticos y gastos de representación a cuenta de los presupuestos generales del estado. Vaya suerte que tienen sus súbditos. La monarquía es la mejor inversión que incluso comprándola con el sistema republicano sale hasta barata.
Mientras, la familia real reside en el Pabellón del Príncipe que es un palacio al estilo renacentista de 3.000 metros cuadrados (1.771 metros cuadrados útiles) construido por el Patrimonio Nacional con un costo de 4.300.000 euros. Un verdadero castillo medieval con foso y murallas vigilado celosamente por la Guardia Real. En la fachada ondea altiva la bandera rojigualda como símbolo imperecedero de la unidad de España.
En el año 2002 el presidente de gobierno José María Aznar se la ofreció a modo de regalo al entonces Príncipe de Asturias don Felipe de Borbón (con vistas a su futuro noviazgo) El pabellón del Príncipe se encuentra en una zona aledaña a la Zarzuela rodeado de jardines de ensueño y 14.000 hectáreas de un hermoso bosque Mediterráneo donde retozan, ciervos, gamos y jabalíes. En apariencia de propiedad pública pero “afecto” al servicio y uso de su majestad el rey y de los miembros de la familia real”.
El rey recibe una cantidad global de casi 8.000.000 millones de euros de los presupuestos generales del estado destinada el sostenimiento de la familia real y que él distribuye a su libre albedrío. No olvidemos que la monarquía es inviolable y está blindada por los partidos mayoritarios PP. PSOE y Ciudadanos. Patrimonio Nacional o la Guardia Real cuentan con un presupuesto de 150 millones de euros anuales y casi 3.000 trabajadores - Teóricamente dependientes del gobierno central, pero en la práctica al servicio de la Casa Real.
En el Pabellón del Príncipe igualmente se hallan las oficinas de la Casa del Rey, el Cuarto Militar -dirigido por el almirante Juan Ruiz Casas- el jefe de protocolo y una sección donde se alojan los siervos, pajes, criadas, doncellas, camareros, amas, mucamas, mayordomos, institutrices, preceptores, ayos y palafreneros. Aparte de los miembros de los cuerpos de seguridad del estado, escoltas y edecanes. Como a doña Letizia el estamento castrense le produce cierta repulsa ha prohibido el toque de corneta, la izada y arriada de bandera y el homenaje a los caídos. Pero esto no es óbice para que la capitana general de los ejércitos luciendo sus mejores galas con peineta y mantilla amadrine los navíos de guerra, carros de combate, aviones bombarderos o participe en la jura de bandera de los agentes de la Guardia Civil.
Quizás el recinto más importante del palacio de la Zarzuela sea la cocina real donde los fogones permanecen encendidos las veinticuatro horas del día. Y esto se debe a que en cualquier momento sus altezas reales exigen los más extravagantes caprichitos gastronómicos. El responsable del mismo es José Roca, cocinero mayor del reino, y experto en complacer los paladares más exquisitos. (tanto de la familia real como los invitados VIP)
Los proveedores oficiales de la Zarzuela se esmeran en aportar los productos de primerísima calidad, biológicos y con denominación de origen certificado: el mejor pollo de corral, la selecta carne vacuno o de porcino, sobre todo, el solomillo del grupo Norteños, sin pasar por alto el cordero o cochinillo de Segovia, la pechuguita de pavo, el jamoncito serrano o de jabugo, y el pescado como es habitual de Pescaderías Coruñesas, el caviar, las angulas, los centollos, los percebes, las langostas, las parrochas, el salmón del Sella, sin olvidar las verduras y hortalizas frescas y una extensa variedad de postres: frutas tropicales, la tarta de Santiago, los casadielles, las yemas de Ávila, la crema catalana, el pastel cordobés, las ensaimadas de baleares o el arroz con leche. Entre tanto en la bodega reposan vinos incunables tanto de España como del mundo entero lo mismo que una extensa variedad de brandys, vodkas, cavas y champagne.
No sabemos lo que pensarán los obreros o los trabajadores que se levantan a las 6 de la mañana a cumplir con su dura jornada diaria ¿Tal vez se le dibujará en su rostro una sonrisa al saber que parte de sus impuestos se dedican a mantener la familia Real y a su extensa prole? Eso sin hablar del tiempo de ocio que ocupan principalmente en saraos, los fiestonones, banquetes, duelos gastronómicos, cacerías, monterías, corridas de toros, regatas o cruceros de placer.
A través de una pantalla de televisión y gracias a la magia de las ondas hertzianas la presentadora del telediario de la segunda cadena Letizia Ortiz logró cautivar al príncipe Felipe (un coloso de 1.90 de estatura dotado de una inteligencia superior) que cayó presa de un súbito encantamiento virtual. Un cuento de hadas solo comparable al romance de Romeo y Julieta.
El soberano o soberana (porque ya se ha abolido la ley Sálica) de las Españas se elige “democráticamente” en el lecho nupcial. Esto significa que si alguno de los espermatozoides del soberano fecunda con éxito el santísimo óvulo de su majestad a los nueve meses alumbrará un ser pluscuamperfecto que guie los destinos del reino.
Las actuales hijas de la pareja real son dos hermosas infantas rubias y de ojos azules, étnicamente arias, católicas y apostólicas ya que están emparentadas por un lado con los emperadores Bávaros y por el otro con don Pelayo. En este caso la corona ha recaído en la infanta Leonor, princesa de Asturias, quien, por obra y gracia del espíritu santo, será la nueva reina de España asegurando así la perpetuidad de la dinastía borbónica.
La rutina diaria de sus majestades está marcada por una apretada agenda institucional propia de tan alta investidura. El jefe de la Casa Real es el encargado de planificar cada una de las actividades oficiales y extraoficiales de Felipe VI -el Jefe de Estado y capitán general de los ejércitos- y de su consorte la reina doña Letizia.
El cirujano Antonio de la Fuente y los médicos del clínica Ruber han atendido a la reina Doña Letizia (por motivos de salud, se afirma) en los últimos 14 años. Al parecer su majestad está obsesionada con su aspecto físico (la perfección hedonista) ¿cuánto han costado estas carísimas operaciones y tratamientos? Cualquier esfuerzo es poco para elevar su autoestima y garantizar su felicidad. ¿Alguien se atreve a cuestionarla? Quien lo haga inmediatamente será acusado de antiespañol, separatista o comunista y condenado a la picota. Su alteza serenísima doña Letizia está a punto de terminar el proceso de metamorfosis y pronto los súbditos podrán presumir de tener la reina más bella del universo.
Gracias a las incontables operaciones de cirugía estética (que son un secreto de estado) la reina ha conseguido superar el canon de belleza griega. De veras que luce como una adolescente a pesar de haber cumplido 46 años. En su currículo extraoficial consta una septorrinoplastia para corregir el tabique nasal, la elevación de los parpados con silicio orgánico y tocoferol, una mentoplastia para suavizar el mentón tan prominente, el aumento de pechos con implante de silicona con el fin de realzar el busto, la eliminación de las bolsas de los ojos, el arreglo de los dientes con brackets (ortodoncia) La reina por ley y cueste lo que cueste debe ser eternamente joven y subir incorrupta al reino de los cielos. Por prescripción médica también se le han recomendado tratamientos corporales y faciales: infiltraciones de ácido hialurónico sintético para rellenar los surcos de las arrugas, las inyecciones de hidroxiapatita de calcio para realzar los pómulos, la toxina botuniloica para relajar la expresión de la frente, el botox para estirar la piel o colágeno para rejuvenecerla. Los halagos y piropos se multiplican y llueven a su paso los pétalos de rosas. Esas joyas que exhibe en los desfiles de modas le otorga un cierto halo de divinidad: la tiara de lis, el emblema de los Borbones, y regalo de Alfonso XIII a su prometida la princesa Victoria Eugenia de Battenberg, la tiara de diamantes que le ofreció Franco a la reina Sofía con motivo de su enlace matrimonial, dos pulseras de la firma Cartier, los collares de perlas finas de Tiffany Victoria, la diadema prusiana de platino, diamante y brillantes, los pendientes aguamarina y zafiros, los anillos de oro engastados con esmeraldas.
Pertenecemos a una sociedad en la que prima la imagen y el culto al cuerpo. Por lo tanto la reina Letizia está constantemente expuesta al juicio mediático que se emite a través de la prensa, la radio, la televisión o las redes sociales (tanto a nivel nacional como internacional) Esta sobreexposición bestial la soberana la afronta con coraje y valentía. Suena la marcha real y nadie puede hacerle sombra pues su majestad es el centro del universo. Tales delirios de grandeza los disimula con una sonrisa de cumplido o un gesto mayestático que define su recio carácter. Cada movimiento suyo está impregnado de glamour, y un irresistible atractivo erótico y hasta sexual que provoca un desmedido apasionamiento. Doña Letizia es la estrella de las revistas del corazón y la prensa rosa de los cinco continentes, ella es la best seller, la número uno que agota todas las ediciones, y acapara todas las portadas. ¡Letizia, Letizia! la plebeya nieta de un taxista ha sido coronada en lo más alto del Olimpo.
¿Cuál es el papel de la reina? ¿Acaso todos piensan que es meramente representativo? ¿un jarrón chino? Doña Letizia tiene que cuidar la imagen pública puesto que es el mascarón de proa de la marca España. Su belleza y sensualidad es el mejor gancho y propaganda para asegurar el éxito en los contratos, inversiones, transacciones y exportaciones que son un factor determinante para el buen funcionamiento del PIB (producto interior bruto) o la estabilidad de la prima de riesgo. Es una excelente relaciones públicas y las multinacionales españolas están de plácemes. La reina también toma decisiones ya que prudentemente le susurra al oído de su majestad Felipe VI sus preferencias en los asuntos familiares o políticos. Sus deseos se convierten en órdenes pues al fin y al cabo los acontecimientos más cruciales del reino se deciden en la cama o en los mejores restaurantes.
Nadie ha podido desvelar el patrimonio de la familia real española pero se especula que podría elevarse a unos 150.000.000 millones de euros. No hay que ser mal pensados porque todo este dinero es producto de sus abnegados servicios a la patria. La dinastía borbónica a través de la historia se ha distinguido por su proverbial honradez, jamás han ejercido de lobistas, ni han cobrado comisiones, ni se le conocen corruptelas o cuentas en paraísos fiscales como pretenden insinuar sus más encarnizados enemigos.
Algunos envidiosos sostienen que es una afrenta intolerable tamaña exhibición de opulencia y derroche por parte de la familia real. Más bien lo que deberían hacer es predicar la austeridad pues en el reino de España existen millones de marginados y empobrecidos víctimas de la crisis económica.
Los defensores de la monarquía responden que este es un estúpido argumento populista con el que intentan los antisistema destruir una de las instituciones más queridas por los súbditos españoles. La monarquía representa la unidad de España y es la garante del estado de derecho, la libertad y la democracia. Así lo decidieron los súbditos cuando en el referéndum constitucional de 1978 aprobaron con el 87% de los votos la restauración borbónica. Refrendando así la voluntad testamentaria del caudillo Francisco Franco que eligió al príncipe don Juan Carlos como su sucesor.
No quiero ni pensar si llegará a fallecer nuestra sacrosanta y serenísima reina –Dios la guarde por muchos años- seguro que al día siguiente no saldría el sol y sus criadas, amas y siervas serían enterradas vivas junto a ella en una magnánima ceremonia faraónica. El rey inconsolable perdería la razón y muchos de sus súbditos preferirían el suicidio antes que soportar la ausencia de tan augusta benefactora. El doblar de las campanas, el luto oficial indefinido, las banderas a media asta, y el desgarrador llanto de las plañideras sumirían al reino en la depresión más espantosa.
Su majestad se pasa las horas muertas en el tocador de la alcoba ensimismada frente a su espejo pronunciando el clásico conjuro: “espejito mágico espejito de oro ¿quién es la más linda? Dímelo tesoro” El genio le responde con voz impostada: “nadie en el reino es capaz de eclipsar a vuestra excelencia ¡doña Letizia es las más guapa, guapa, guapa!” Coqueta y vanidosa lanza un suspiro de alivio mientras los poetas palaciegos le cantan versos laudatorios: ¡¡Oh, gloria inmarcesible!! ¡¡oh, júbilo inmortal!! Escribirán su nombre en letras de oro en los anales de la historia, se le levantarán estatuas, bustos, se erigirán monumentos en su honor; eternamente adulada por sus súbditos que le hacen reverencias, besan sus purísimas manos y se rinden a sus pies. La revista Hola, el boletín oficial de la Casa Real, el Diez Minutos, Lecturas o Semana lanzan ediciones extraordinarias para ponderar el regreso de Sissi emperatriz resucitada.
El culto a la personalidad es una de las máximas virtudes de nuestra monarquía “constitucional” y ya comienzan a bautizarse con su nombre estadios, aeropuertos, salas de teatro, hospitales, y hasta tanatorios. Por real decreto ley la foto oficial de sus majestades debe presidir los ayuntamientos, colegios, universidades, cuarteles, estaciones de policía, edificios oficiales, embajadas, etc. Tal epidemia de narcisismo es otra prueba más de la soberbia imperial españolista.
A las famosas peluqueras Luz y Gema se les ha encomendado la heroica misión de cuidar la sedosa cabellera de su majestad. Ambas cumplen una extenuante jornada de trabajo que comienzan al toque de diana (6 de la mañana) -casi todos los días del año sin excepciones-. Son memorables sus eximias obras de arte: el moño rizado, el flequillo ladeado, la coleta sutil, el clásico recogido de bailarina, el pelo liso, ondas retro, corte bob, las mechas más claras, más oscuras, el alisamiento, la melena rizada. Pero hay algo que no han podido evitar y es que a la reina se le caiga el pelo (por culpa del excesivo uso de tintes, acondicionadores y demás menjurjes) y neutralizar la aparición de las primeras canas. El desgaste de su tupida cabellera es más que evidente y se teme-que si no se toman las medidas oportunas- en un corto periodo de tiempo, pueda quedarse calva. Para evitar tamaña tragedia que la condenaría a usar una incómoda peluca se le está aplicando un revolucionario tratamiento de choque a base de champús y lociones especiales por parte de los más prestigiosos dermatólogos de España. Se ha descubierto que su alteza real es alopécica nerviosa por lo que sus psicólogos le han recomendado la práctica del bikram yoga. Dejar su mente en blanco es la mejor terapia para que recupere el equilibrio y la armonía cósmica.
Sus asesores y estilistas encabezadas por Eva Fernández estudian cada gesto de su expresión facial y corporal. Sencillamente su majestad es una las más cotizadas “influencers” del mercado, una top model de insuperable valía que se la pelean las más importantes firmas a nivel nacional e internacional. Es necesario que doña Letizia conserve la línea con una exhaustiva dieta Perricone tan popular entre las estrellas de Hollywood. La reina está flaca, muy delgada ¡oh virgen santa! ¿Será anoréxica? O a lo mejor sufre alguna dolencia grave porque parece más un saco de huesos. ¿Quizás sea el efecto de una mala relación con Felipe VI, sus suegros o la familia real? Al fin y al cabo ella es una intrusa, una plebeya vulgar y corriente. Con razón se siente odiada por sus súbditos que la consideran una advenediza carente de rancio abolengo.
Su católica majestad siempre se le ve tan etérea y angelical. Su piel tersa y sin una arruga demuestra que está bendecida por la madre naturaleza (y las incontables sesiones en la cámara hiperbárica) De su look ultra natural se encarga el su súper maquillador Daniel Vicente: primero que todo el bálsamo para los labios antes de repasarlos con color carmín (1001 pintalabios ) y una delicada sombra de ojos Cooper (favorita de las modelos) Todos los cortesanos tienen que quedarse maravillados con sus pestañas larguísimas rizadas con rímel que resaltan sus bellísimos ojos verdes que se vuelven chispeantes al enmarcarlos con un khol negro. Y para rematar el toque pastel sobre sus parpados que da luz a sus poderosísimas cejas. Menos mal que el palacio de la Zarzuela está muy bien abastecido con la más alta gama de cosméticos: L’Oréal Paris, Vichy, Avon, Mac Mac, Nars o Chanel.
A la reina le encantan los modelos exclusivos de Inditex o Zara, los Massimo Dutti, Uterque, Designers, Remix, Felipe Prieto, Loewe, Carolina Herrera, Nina Ricci, Hugo Boss, Felipe Varela o Estella McCartney. Definitivamente su armario está muy bien abastecido pues se reserva un traje para cada ocasión según las tendencias de primavera, verano, otoño e invierno. Habría que sacar la cuenta de todos los vestidos que ha estrenado (no suele repetirlos) durante los años que lleva de reina consorte. Son tantos que incluso necesita la ayuda de una abnegada doncella que los clasifique y los mantenga a punto. La reina por su suprema elegancia es el espejo en el cual tienen que verse reflejadas las mujeres españolas. En el fondo es una feminista radical que para sobrevivir tiene que adaptarse a las veleidades del régimen monárquico (papista) patriarcal.
En el tema de los zapatos su majestad también es muy exigente ya que sus delicados pies deben calzar las mejores marcas: Blahnik, Magrit, Pura López, Mango, Prada Miu Miu, Lodi, Carolina Herrera. Su zapato fetiche es el de tacón de aguja de Magrit. En su zapatero guarda más de 500 pares de zapatos de súper lujo (a cargo de los presupuestos generales del estado, por supuesto) Sin lugar a dudas que va camino de convertirse en la nueva Imelda Marcos (esposa del dictador Ferdinand Marcos) que tenía más de 1000 pares de zapatos. Otro de sus complementos favoritos son los bolsos cuyas marcas favoritas son: Uterque, Magrit, Felipe Varela, Carolina Herrera, Lidia Faro, Roger Vivier, Malababa, Cucareliquia, Adolfo Domínguez, Ángel Schlesser, Hugo Boss, Según los periodistas de la prensa del corazón posee más de 300. Aunque son apenas un adorno porque ella no necesita ni documentos, ni tarjetas, pues una sola palabra suya basta para cumplir cualquiera de sus caprichos.
Pero en la vida de doña Letizia no todo es frivolidad ya que en su corazón prevalece el espíritu altruista y solidario. La nueva madre Teresa de Calcuta apoya incondicionalmente a las ONGs y demás organismos de ayuda humanitaria que se empeñan en redimir a los más pobres y afligidos. Con sus manos caritativas acaricia a los huérfanos y menesterosos que ante su luminosa presencia renacen de las cenizas.
En la novela “Piel de Zapa” de Balzac el argumento central es la búsqueda del elixir de la eterna juventud, mejor dicho, el deseo de la longevidad aunque sea a costa de venderle el alma al diablo. En “El retrato de Dorian Grey” el genial escritor irlandés Oscar Wilde desarrolla la tesis de que lo único que vale en la vida es la belleza, el atractivo físico y la satisfacción de los sentidos. La Reina Letizia desea mantenerse tan joven como Dorian cuando Basil lo retrató en el cuadro. Porque la figura pintada en la tela es la que envejece y no el personaje real. El mito de Dorian Grey es una hipócrita mascarada que arrastra a aquellos que caen en sus tentáculos a la cruel autodestrucción. http://www.rebelion.org/noticia.php?id=249185&titular=la-asunci%F3n-a-los-cielos-de-su-majestad-la-reina-do%F1a-letizia-

El collar
Tiene una medida de 30 a 33 cm. Tradicionalmente, suele ser un hilo de perlas ajustado al cuello, y sujeto en la parte trasera, donde está el cierre, con un broche. Pero hoy en día existen infinidad de materiales que harán lucir un collar de este tipo perfecto para resaltar tu belleza. Se pueden utilizar dos, tres o más hilos, dependiendo de la longitud y esbeltez de tu cuello. Tu cuello lucirá atractivo y hermoso, proyectando ese toque de elegancia que nos brinda un collar de este largo. Un collar de este tipo con un vestido negro es sin duda una combinación explosiva de glamour y sensualidad.
Gargantilla o Choker
Es un collar corto que oscila entre los 35 y los 40 centímetros, por lo que suele ir bastante pegado al cuello. Para algunas de nosotras es algo incomodo o molesto usar algo tan justo sobre el cuello, es por ello, que deberás elegir aquel que te hace sentir cómoda. No voy a negar que este tipo de gargantillas te hacen ver mas esbelta por que estiliza tu figura. Este tipo de collares puede utilizarse con cualquier tipo de prenda y ocasión y es el modelo el que determinará la ropa exacta que deberás utilizar.

Así, que si deseas asistir a un evento de día y quieres verte arreglada pero no tan formal, esta es una gran opción.
Princesa

Es el collar más comúnmente utilizado y es el complemento perfecto para algún vestido para cualquier evento social. Resaltan y decoran el cuello, es ideal para mujeres de estatura baja a promedio. Puedes utilizarlo con cuellos redondos y altos, pero también se complementa con escotes muy bajos.

Ópera
Los collares tipo Ópera tienen una medida entre los 71 a 86 cm de longitud, es decir, quedan un poco por debajo de la altura del pecho. Las mujeres de complexión delgada lucen muy favorecidas con este tipo de collares. Es perfecto para lucir con un escote alto o redondo, ademas te ofrece la posibilidad de utilizarlo en varias opciones atractivas como sencillo o con varios hilos. También te puede permitir anudarlo por debajo del escote.

2018.05.18 11:07 Zenrebok Series - We’re All Monsters but I’m different – Part Seven

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8 Part 9
Dear reader, my Spanish is not so good, I can speak it a little, but not really write it. If something is obviously wrong, I'd be grateful if you could leave a comment with the correct Spanish.
I'm not myself
I ended up just lounging around the hotel after my rampage in the Mexican wilderness. I had trouble sleeping.
It wasn’t guilt, to be clear, in fact I felt indifferent to that event. Like it didn’t really matter much. That should have been a red flag, I’m not usually that callous, something had changed in me.
I could feel something of them, moving around in me, echoes of their memories. Three of the dead were similar, filled with anger, lust and a desire to do violence at the drop of a hat. The fourth, the Man I killed as he reached the door, was different. I felt his sorrow, his deep regret, and a self loathing that comes from pretending to be someone he wasn’t.
I had flashes of alien memories, murders, rapes, and places visited. Childhood memories mixed in with mass murder, criminal activity and the torture of victims.
I had a vivid nightmare, my victims sat around a table in their desert shack, their hearts sitting in front of them.
Still beating.
We we’re playing highest card wins, picking cards of a deck in turn, and then revealing them all at once. I kept drawing the highest card, and one by one, I ate their hearts. Then it was just me and victim number four.
He turned over a Joker, and I turned over the Ace of Spades. He gave me a sour smile, and pushed his heart across the table to me.
“You won that game.” He said bitterly. “But you won’t win them all.”
I looked down at the table, the beating heart still connected to arteries through a gaping chest wound, was mine. I reached down, and ate it.
I awoke in terror, no more sleep for me that night.
After seven days of insomnia, and constant haunting , I decided I needed to get back out into the wilderness. The Desert might cure me of this funk, I thought, but something else was driving me.
I won’t lie, and say I turned over a new leaf. I didn’t, I went hunting.
I started tracking cartel men, I had visions of their faces in my mind from dead men’s memories, and some bloody internal compass pointed me to them.
Many were deep inside Mexican territory, some were surprisingly far north, well beyond the border. I started to stalk those closest. I went into Mexican towns and cities, eventually liberating a cartel car, and its owner’s heart.
I hunted up and down the border, about eighty miles or more inside Mexico, I picked men off. Some by themselves, some in pairs. I was stacking ghosts at an alarming rate, but I was unmoved. I had gone beyond justifying it to myself, I did it because I could.
Eventually, ‘El Diablo’ became a thing, the gangs were getting nervous and started constantly traveling in groups of four or more. No more midnight runs for cigarettes, they went into lock down.
It didn’t matter, I just moved on, into new territory. The bodies were piling up, and I eventually absorbed the memories of a man who’d attended a meeting of minor bosses. They had been blaming each other for staff losses, but they realized something weird was going on.
They had assumed it was a new cartel, or the CIA. But someone caught me on security camera, they knew what I could do, and had an idea of what I looked like.
But what caught my attention was the image of a house that came up again and again, a house with piles of money.
La Hacienda
It took a few weeks, but I finally found the right town, and the right house. On the way there I brought myself a ’leetil gift’, and pocketed it for future use. I watched, and waited until nightfall, passing the hours alert and hungry.
There was some traffic in and out of the house nestled inside a high walled compound, but it settled down around seven in the evening. It was rather nondescript, no armed guards patrolled the grounds, and it could easily pass the ‘just an ordinary house’ test.
Sensing a kind of drowsiness coming over the occupants, I slipped on the cloth wrestling mask and jumped the wall in an easy leap. Now I was a crime fighting super hero.
Yay me.
I paused at the end of a disheveled garden, which was being landscaped, and watched the house a moment longer. Security camera’s.
Well, as long as the mask stays on, I didn’t care. You can cover a lot of ground running at forty miles an hour, running to the side of the house I jumped straight up just below a balcony, and landed silently.
Everything slowed down, my senses sharpened, and I could hear and nearly SEE the occupants.
Breathing, heartbeats, and movement.
The house walls were almost transparent to me.
A large collection of people occupied an upstairs room. That made no sense. Downstairs, five men talked and drank. I decided to check out the top floor before causing mayhem.
The sliding door to the bedroom next to the balcony was locked, but, the window was ajar, it had a security latch keeping it from opening wide. I twisted it slowly, and it broke quietly. I was in.
The room was modern, and tidy, I moved across to the upstairs corridor and carefully sniffed the air. Sneaking like a cat burglar from a budget movie, I hammed up it, creeping like a cartoon villain just to amuse myself.
I listened at the room with the mass of bodies, dozing or lying quietly, something was well off. I smelt sorrow, and fear, this was not a happy slumber party. I turned the door handle carefully, and nudged the door open, all the while listening for the Men below.
The room was lit by the external street light passing through thin curtains. Five Women were held captive, they were shackled to a bar mounted to the floor. In the corner of the room was a bed. They lay on cheap mattresses. One stirred and looked at me, fear grew in her and she began to weep soundlessly.
I gestured gently “Rescate. Seguro.” She looked unconvinced. I need her to keep calm, one scream and I’d lose the element of surprise. “Libertad...” I pointed to the window, and the world beyond. “Escapar.” Then I quietly tapped my chest “Libertador”.
There was a stirring in the room, and some more fright, some hushing and quick whispering about who the freak at the door was. All five women were now awake, I slipped into the room and carefully shut the door.
Pointing to the padlocks keeping them chained, I asked. “Quién tiene la llave?” Who has the key? A woman, eyes dark and gaunt, pointed to her throat. “El hombre con un tatuaje aquí”, she whispered, I nodded “Entiendo”, I understand. Maybe I could have broken the locks, but I doubted myself.
There was movement from below, I even turned my head to listen, “Alguien viene.” I whispered, as footsteps came from the end of the corridor. “Shhhhh.” I hissed, “todo estará bien”
I flattened myself against the wall near the door, I’d be the first thing he saw when the door opened, I had to be quick. The door handle turned, and he stepped inside.
I grabbed his throat, squeezing his windpipe closed, and pushed him to the ground so quickly he didn’t even croak a yelp. I was flush with a profound and deep love for him, it was an awe inspiring affection, time literally stopped as I admired the figure pushed into the carpet before me.
I drove my mouth into his back, and his heart popped out through a small hole between his shoulder blades, filling me with a nuclear explosion of joy and gratitude. There were gasps, and I felt the Women move further from me, I had hoped the room was too dark to see my attack.
Guess not.
“El Diablo.” Someone said. “Si.” I whispered back. “No para las señoras, estás seguro.” I didn’t look at them, just in case the heat of the hunt disputed that.
I picked the dead man up, and easily carried him into the Bedroom opposite their prison. A second set of footsteps came up the stairs, I slipped the door almost shut, ready for another snatch and grab.
The Man stopped before he reached the Woman’s prison cell. I looked down at the carpet in the bed room.
Blood.
Lots and lots of blood. “Oh...crap” I thought to myself. There was a quick retreat from the hallway, and rapid hushed chatter from below, then someone called out.
A joking voice said the equivalent of, “Hey Miguel, the boss is on the phone, come back down.” Yeah, there was also the sound of guns being cocked.
I looked around me. I could call it quits and go, just leap out a window and bolt for the fence.
I looked at the floor, it was transparent.
I did a double take. I could see a man below, holding a shotgun. I glanced up, city light stained cloud and a few stars.
I felt the love for my prey run out of me, like ice water, it was replaced with a pure love of power. I bunched up in a crouch, and then leaped up, the world virtually stopped spinning. I smashed straight through the floor, landing in a shower of debris and plaster behind the Gun man.
I grabbed him from behind and sucked his heart out, punching through his spinal column, which erupted from his shattered back, in a shower of blood.
Two men, turned slowly, too slowly towards me. One was waiting at the foot of the stairs, the other in the middle of the room, automatic rifles at the ready.
I threw my victim at the nearest, both bodies exploded out through a glass sliding door, and they landed heavily twenty feet away in the garden.
The guy near the stairs panic fired my way, I took three giant steps and kicked a heavy chair at him. It cleared the room nearly instantly, and it smashed him through the wall. I felt him die. His spirit, or soul, just winked out.
Glass crunched under foot, as I strode towards the man with a tattooed neck in the garden. He was wrecked, probably dying, he was still trying to raise himself up onto his elbows. Blood was streaming from his nose and mouth, and he barely saw me as I knelt next to him.
“¿Dónde está la llave?” I asked. “Wha?...” He spat blood, and lowered himself trembling, to the grass. “Las mujeres,...” I pointed to the house, “¿Dónde está la llave?” I repeated.
He was fading fast, so I checked his pockets, and found a key ring complete with car keys. I don’t why, but something like pity came over me, as he lay shuddering on the ground. It was a dreadful sight, I kill quickly, and this was a crap way to die.
I patted him on the shoulder, as his shaking, and rasping breath stopped. “Adiós amigo.”
Back inside I sniffed out the hiding place of the loot I had hoped was there. I found a black duffel bag under the floor beneath a sink, it was filled with money. Wrapped in plastic like they do at a bank.
I had never seen so much cash, and it was all new, and all American. That confused me, why do they have so many Gringo dollars? Not that it mattered, it was coming with me.
I went back upstairs, and unlocked the Women’s chains. They rubbed their ankles, and looked cautiously at me. “Qué hacemos ahora?” One Lady asked me.
I opened the bag, and handed each of them a slab of Ben Franklins for their troubles. “Salir de México, no vuelvas” “Que?” “Correr desde México” “Tu español no es bueno” Someone said. “Si…” I agreed, “My Spanish is no good.”
I lead them down stairs, and took them into the garage, there was yet another black three Litre SUV parked inside, we left in Tattoo man’s truck. I dropped them off in a different town, at a decent hotel. Then I drove to the border, and dumped the vehicle.
It took a couple of days, to get back into the United States, I was glad to be home.
One Good Thing
I had been running for too long, the adrenaline took its toll on me, not my adrenaline, my victims. It puts a load on the liver to process it, and I was getting frazzled.
It was winter, I needed to hibernate for a while, I rented a place in Laredo, right next to the border. I spent nights just staring at the walls, or watching monotonous TV. I stayed away from Bars, just in case I tranced some poor woman, I was growing afraid of myself.
One night cabin fever got to me, and decided to go out for a walk along the river. I began picking myself apart, I’d done too much killing, things I couldn’t fix and I was filled with the ghosts of the dead. A kind of melancholy crept into me, would I carry my dead victims forever?
After about an hour, the smell of death blew my way, reluctantly I followed it. I heard sobbing first, and it took another quarter hour to locate the source, I was in no hurry.
“Papa.” A child’s voice.
I almost turned around then.
Like I needed this in my day. But I told myself, if I could do at least one decent thing, perhaps I could square some of this mad life with my soul.
I found a young boy, hugging his Father, who lay face down on the cold ground. “Hey,...” I said. “Papa!” The boy yelled, and he looked at me with a mix of fear and pleading. “Ayuda a mi papá” He cried.
I crouched down beside his Father, I could tell he was long gone. But I made the effort to roll him onto his back, and I listened to his chest. He was damp, like he’d been in water recently. I sat back up, and shook my head solemnly.
“Tu padre está muerto” I said, “Lo siento.” The boy hugged his father and cried, I backed off, and left him to his grief. I figured sooner than later the Border Patrol would swing by, and pick him up, we were so close to town they couldn’t miss him.
And then, I had a truly, spectacularly bad idea, I’d help him instead. “Cuál es tu nombre?” “Arturo” He mumbled. “James” I said, tapping my chest. “Donde esta tu mama?” “En cielo” he said and pointed to the sky. “In heaven?” “Si.”
I pointed to his Father, “Teléfono”, and I held up my budget cell phone. Arturo pointed to a backpack. “I’m just going to look for Papa’s phone, ok?” He nodded, but looked uncertain. He was probably around eight, poor kid.
Everything was in Spanish, and the phone was a simple model, but I managed to find his contacts.
“El Tio?” I asked. “Si.” Great, he had family alive somewhere. I pointed back across the river, “El Tio in Mexico?” “Si.” He started saying a lot, in Spanish, too fast and rich for me to catch, so I showed him the contacts list on his dad’s phone.
He pointed to a name and number, “El Tio”. “Your Fathers Brother” I pointed at his Dad, “El Tio is Papa’s hermano?” He just nodded.
“Ok.” I pushed dial on his Fathers phone.
It was early evening, I hoped he was home. The phone rang a while and then a Man’s voice answered the call. “Hola, Miguel? ¿Estás en Texas?” “I’m calling on behalf of your nephew, Arturo. Tu hablas ingles?” “Si, Yes I speak English, who are you?” “I’m with your nephew, Arturo, he’s ok,...” I handed the phone to Arturo.
The kid talked for a while, there were more tears, and I heard cries and strong emotion coming through the tinny phone speaker.
After a while the kid handed me the phone. The man’s voice was shaky, but he was trying to keep it together. “We can’t cross the border, into Texas, no pasaporte. Can you bring him to us?” I sighed, damn it, now I was stuck with the kid.
Dumb, dumb, dumb.
“Si.” I said. “I’ll get them both across the river, and call you.” “Both?” He said puzzled. “Si. Leave it to me.” There were more questions, and more arrangements, but in short I was now taking Arturo across the Rio Grande. Not normally a problem for me, but now I had a kid and a corpse to carry.
“Arturo, did you cross in a boat?” “Si.” He seemed uncertain with that yes.
To cut a long story short, I found his Fathers makeshift raft, and put my monstrous hunting strength to good use for a change. I carried his father, to the river, got them both safely on the raft and paddled across.
I took a while to get across, and then back up stream. I found a dirt road, and we walked for a while. I called his Uncle, and told him where we were, gave him some map coordinates. And we waited.
I made a make shift bed for Arturo, he slept a little, and I watched over him as he twitched and mumbled.
At dawn, his uncle showed up, with two hefty looking friends, there were a lot of tears. I looked away, tried to keep a respectful distance.
We loaded the dead man onto the back of his truck, and they covered him with a blanket, they showed him a lot of respect and said some prayers.
I don’t know why, but I felt useless.
I retrieved a fat roll of U.S dollars from my pocket, and offered them to the Uncle, he was confused. Maybe a little offended.
“For the funeral.” “No, not needed.” He started, “Please.” I said and hoped I looked sincere. He nodded, and took the money. “Gracias.” He said solemnly.
He offered me a ride, but I turned it down. And with that, they drove off into a Mexican sunrise.
The dawn carried a mixture of cold air, the smells of nature, and a distant scent I knew too well. One good thing will never be enough, I said to myself, as dead men’s ghosts churned inside me.
I sniffed the air.
Time to go hunting.

For years I've been trying to help my mom find a bra she can feel good in. It's very hard due to her irregular shape and it breaks my heart because she often gets super upset and ends up in tears.
She had a right breast mastectomy more than 10 years ago. After that, she wore a mastectomy bra with an insert for a while and later on she had a reconstruction. She doesn't have any implants, it was done with her own tissue and fat from her back. The results are far from perfect but she didn't want to have a silicone implant that needs to be changed every 10 years, etc. Today her breasts are super different. I'd say she has wide and tall roots and very little projection. The smaller breast has irregularities at the top and the part in between her breasts doesn't look like a regular cleavage. The reconstructed breast has a nipple tattoo and a scar going across it horizontally. She also has a huge scar on her back where the band usually sits. None of it hurts, it's mostly tricky depending on the clothe's necklines. I think that aside from the surgeries she has also aged and her breasts are saggieshrinking and a bit smaller than years ago. Plus what makes it tricky is that her frame used to hold around a 36DD and even if she doesn't have the actual breast anymore, all that surrounds it has the size to support it. Does it make sense or am I trying to understand it from the wrong angle?
Here are her measurements: Loose: 81cm - 31,88 inches Snug: 80cm - 31,49 inches Tight: 78cm - 30,70 inches Standing: 90cm - 35,43 inches Leaning: 93cm - 36,61 inches Lying: 89cm - 35,03 inches The new calculator says 32D/DD but suggests 34C/D to be more comfortable.
She was using a 36B in some brands but I chose to believe the calculator. The first thing I did was buy her a Patsy Black Plunge Balcony Bra in a UK 34C. The main mistake was I didn't see it was see through and she prefers molded cups. To be honest, when we were shopping online we both got carried away by the cute polka dots. This is how it looks on her. I've had to put it on the tightest hook on her back and shorten the straps quite a bit. I think this bra is intended for breasts that are more projected and that's why the cups are too big on her. You could fit in half a small lemon or 3 cherries inside the cup when she has it on. It isn't the most suitable bra for her shape but I think the wires are where they should. Or at least look like they have the proper width.
Then she showed me one of her least hated ones. A pretty new Victoria's secret she bought in NY and saves for special occasions. I can't see the size because she cut the label. It was itchy... but I'm guessing a 34B. This is how it looks on her.
While we were discussing it I asked her to show me her best fitting bra. It's a super old Playtex sized UK 34B. I wouldn't trust the size too much because it's ancient and very stretched. This is how it looks on her.
(sorry if the pics don't have all the necessary angles, she doesn't like to be photographed at all)
After the Freya fiasco, this afternoon I've gone to H&M and bought her 10 different ones so she could have her pick. I know it's not the best option but she had success with a couple of models in the past. I haven't seen them on but she's told me the balconette bra strapless improved comfort EUR 75C FES90C IT 3C UK34C was the closest one. I actually bought her a similar model from C&A a couple of months ago and she likes it too. But if I compare them both in my hands, the H&M's wires are much more narrow. I think she doesn't acknowledge when wires are on top of breast tissue. It's also hard to judge if I don't always get to see it.
Even if the new Freya is all wrong in the cups, I think the wires and the band are almost good. She could perfectly go down a band size but I think all of her other ones actually have too narrow wires or too small cups. She thinks plunges look awful on her and the "push them together Wonderbra style" accentuate her wrinkles and unevenness. She usually prefers strapless ones and I'm guessing it's because the higher gore covers her cleavage and they're more closed on the top so they give her a more rounded even shape. I've tried to talk her into putting an insert in the cup with the smallest breast but she completely refuses to do so. She has them in all shapes and sizes but she believes it's too much of a hassle for everyday wear. I also think it reminds her too much of the insert on her mastectomy bra. Maybe if I could sew it inside the bra for good she'd agree to it. Or if I found a padded one that fit her smaller breast I could maybe empty the extra filling in the other cup?
I really don't know what to do. Should I get her a UK 30C? should I explore different shapes? are there any bras for this specific kind of breasts? Would a Panache jasmine work? We live in Barcelona, Spain but we can get many brands online from brastop, afreshpair and barenecessities. I really don't mind spending whatever it takes for my mom. She deserves everything in this world. I just feel so hopeless and don't know how to help her.
I'd appreciate any recommendation or advice.
thank you all so much!

2017.05.08 22:29 lwhfa The Etymotic ER4XR, and others...

Background
Music has been a significant part of all my life, and I've been surrounded by different influences of different genres, mainly by my parent's tastes. My mom introduced me to: Led Zeppelin, Cat Stevens, The Beatles, Neil Young, whatever music you could dance to or that spoke about any form of love; then my dad's inheritance was to learn to appreciate intricate passages and long compositions: Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, while not forgetting about the heavy stuff: Black Sabbath, Metallica (fun fact: the first day I was taken home after I was born, my mom, dad, grandma, and I, posed for a picture and my dad was wearing a 'Ride the Lightning' shirt, he literally likes everything about the band), ACDC, Megadeth; and also many other artists of other types of music: Ruben Blades, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Paquito D'Rivera, Chic. In consequence I've developed a wide taste, thanks also to my wife and a best friend, I enjoy whatever kind of music that moves me in the inside, it doesn't matter if it is catalogued as metal, hard rock, progressive rock, classical, salsa, merengue, folk, jazz, afrocaribbean, pop, alternative rock, funk, metal funk, rap (this is the least frequent type of music I look for, but still like some good records), electronic, trance, or EDM.
In 2012, I decided I wanted to experience music with more fidelity, so I bought, without trying them (I live far of the US), a pair of Sony MDR-V6 brand new, thinking that $49 was too expensive (so naive). Even though I didn't know nothing about what to hear for, I liked them a lot, and was completely satisfied until the pads worn out, so at the beginning of 2016 looking to replace them, I encountered with some brands whose names I hadn't heard before: Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, AKG, Fostex; and had a few money laying around decided to buy the cheapest model of them all, that also had good reviews and that had outstanding construction, at that moment it was the DT770 Pro 80ohm. When those arrived I was thrilled, and happy, never experienced something like it, instantly preferred them over the V6s. Then found this sub, and everything went down the road faster than I can say it. A month later I got a pair of used DT990, and DT880; mainly because I wanted to know what an open-back sounded like. On top of that I wanted a DAC and an amplifier, stumbled upon with the O2 and ODAC, and felt complete. With all of these I forgot about the V6, which I still own, but never listen to.
Quest for neutrality
I've spent all my time testing, analyzing, and trying to develop some sort of sense about what are the sound characteristics of all these headphones. I'm a musician as well, so I know with fair precision how guitars, basses, flutes, drums, and many other instruments sound, when you put them on a large hall, or a small room.
Initially the DT770 impacted me with their bass, well defined and controlled, and like a thunder, but the vocals sounded off, and the highs (cymbals) where too much in my face with some recordings (Megadeth - Rust in Peace), that made me feel uncomfortable.
The DT990 have better bass, detail retrieval, sound stage and imaging than that of the DT770, but with more aggressive treble; so naturally the DT880 became the pair I used the most, because they sound much more natural and coherent, with less sound stage when compared to the DT990, but with more detail, while still having that kind of treble presence that can be weird sometimes, this was the case until I tried the DT880 and DT990 with a Yamaha CR-240 vintage receiver, a completely relaxed and smooth experience, I guess the O2 is too honest with those headphones.
Above them all the one that really impressed me was the DT880, it allows me to hear things very honestly, and presents them as they were recorded, so I knew I have a preference for neutrality.
While the Yamaha CR-240's has good OP amplifiers, that pair well with the DT line, it is inconvenient to have it laying around on the office, and introduces some background noise that I simply cannot accept, I prefer to listen to completely silent and transparent recordings.
So I ended up in a situation of having a transparent DAC and amplifier setup, but the inability to use the headphones I wanted at work because: the DT880 and DT990 are open back, and people talk here a lot; the DT770 have emphasized trebles and lows; in the quest for isolation, high fidelity resolution and transparency, portability, and considering I'm also experimenting with audio production and engineering, I narrowed my choices on two IEMs: the Etymotic ER4XR and the Campfire Audio Orion, I chose the former because:
Finally, they arrived
Many people have written plenty about the physical characteristics of these headphones, so I will write directly about the tracks I tested and how they sounded, based on my experience.
Test tracks
I tried to include music with lots of dynamics that was recorded properly and of different types, that I know well. Here is a tiny list of 111 tracks ordered alphabetically by artist's name, only one song per artist:
In all of these tracks the ER4XR performed amazingly, without flaws of any kind. Drums sounded adequate, the snare on tracks like: The Package, Motherboard and Bleed is life like; the cymbals have the sufficient amount of presence without even sounding sibilance; the mids are beautiful, on songs like: Moliendo Café, The Twilight Zone, Sr. Troncoso, and Painkiller are resolved in a way that feel natural as if the singer was there. But for me the best feature of these earphones is the detail in imaging, I can pick up everything with them, and even have managed to notice guitar overdubs, or hit sticks on some tracks; sound stage is not huge, but it gets compensated by everything else. Definitely recommend them to others, it doesn't matter if you'll use them to enjoy music or for production, monitoring or anything else, these will do no problem and will always deliver outstanding quality.

2016.04.15 03:20 pmcinern [Better Know a Movement] Film Noir, Week Something: Mexico. Brilliance in Darkness.

Flaunting an American femme fatale. Flaunting a Mexican one.

(Ironically, Ninon Sevilla was Cuban. And Rita Hayworth was Spanish-American. But you get the point)
Title Director Synopsis Date/Time of Screening (est)
Crepúsculo (Twilight, 1945) Julio Bracho A brilliant surgeon is dazed and feels he can no longer operate. Told in flashback, we find his troubles began with a woman. Sat, Apr 16 @3/9pm
Victimas del pecado (Victims of Sin, 1951) Emilio Fernández In México City, a Cuban dancer from "Cabaret Changó" rescues a baby from a garbage can and decides to raise him, but her pachuco pimp gets in her way. Sun, Apr 17 @ 3/9pm

Screening Notes:

There’s no way to introduce even just Mexican noir with only two movies. So, we’ll forego diversity (for now) to highlight quality. Hopefully, that will generate some interest in this virtually untalked-about treasure trove. We’ll see visual despair lower than anything the states would have been allowed to produce, and thematic hopefulness, something the states (at the time) would not have wanted to produce. Mexican noir is a whole new ball game. Crepusculo offers world class photography and performances, and a nuanced political and moral stance not usually found in studio flicks, no matter the country. Victimas offers a combination of the two kinds of women portrayed in Mexico during its Golden Age, the asexual mother and the whore. Here, Sevilla plays a hypersexualized mother, as well as an asexual whore, all at the same time. The Mexican view of women during this period is a very strange mix that I’m still wrapping my head around, but it’s certainly nowhere close to what the U.S. was portraying. I highly recommend both of these movies as great noir, great Mexican movies, and great movies in general. These are top tier flicks, and instant favorites of mine.
A ton of the literature on Mexican cinema dismisses their pre-1960’s canon as soulless Hollywood imitators, half a century relegated to the “Introduction” sections of text books as if to get this uninteresting chunk of Mexican movie history out of the way so we can finally get to the real auteurs: well, blow me. I wanted to do a section on Latin American noir in general, but there’s just too much to talk about. Mexico alone has so many world class noirs, I decided to just stick with this one country as an introduction. Yeah, they definitely modeled their industry from top to bottom after Hollywood, but they made the noir mentality so personal, and in some ways better than the North American expression! We’ve looked at German Expressionism and French Poetic realism as they relate to movies from another country that hadn’t even been released yet, which can be a bit unfair to everyone involved. So this time, let’s discard the American-indigenous concept of noir (especially since Mexico was prefiguring classical American noir by a decade, just like France and the U.S. itself had done) and instead center the concept around Mexico, and see where the U.S. does and doesn’t line up with it. We could do the same for Japanese noir, German, other Latin American countries, French, Scandinavian… just about anywhere.
Mexican movies found the noir mentality most at home in the cabareteras subgenre of the rumberas, movies that were kind of musicals, but mostly melodramas centered around prostitute/dancers. You see a dance floor, you’re really seeing a brothel. Already, we’re in a completely different world. Mexicans thought of “melodrama” the way people in the U.S. do today, as opposed to how it was used from the silent era until the 40’s-50’s. We thought of a melodrama back then as something like a masculine-oriented drama, something that predates the action movie. No explosions or fight scenes, but certainly fights, fires, chasing… action with a lower-case “a.” These rumberas and cabareteras poked their heads in during the 30’s, just after Eisenstein helped usher in an artistic bent to the Mexican film industry. The going rate was for women to be either mothers or whore villains, and they played on the Mexican comedias rancheras concept, a loose equivalent to the American Western. “Comedias” = melodrama, not “comedy.” These rancheras featured rural settings, popular folk songs, and were set during pre-revolutionary times.
By the mid-late 40’s, Mexico was rebuilding its infrastructure, and borrowing from Italian neorealism in their movies to portray it. A ton of these cabareteras showed off the modern Mexican cityscape, now complete with immoral nightclubs and illegal activities. Wet cobblestone streets surrounded by who-knows-how-old buildings with sleazy neon lights freshly bolted on in a failing attempt to update the city’s soul. Instead of seeing grizzled veterans coping with a now-foreign homeland, we see women struggling to break out of their traditional roles by using them for personal gain. One example, Salon Mexico, features a prosti - ah, dancer - who sells her vagi - that is, dances - to support her sister’s education. She gets the shit beat out of her by her pimps, fired, imprisoned, and finally, meets her demise. But she was always struggling to do the right thing, to rise up in the face of a new world playing by the old rules. Femme fatales are plentiful, too, but they’re usually the main character fighting against the machismo ideals (think Brienne of Tarth spliced with Rita Hayworth, if Henry Armstrong was her short tempered pimp). A refreshing counterweight to the American Protestant (and Jewish) fear of women being people, too.
If we were to make a ven diagram of Mexican and American noir, we’d see some (not so?) surprising overlaps and gaps. Mexicans had little need for a detective. They had little attraction to national paranoia. They had a fundamental emphasis on the femme fatale though. So fundamental, in fact, that she was the protagonist, and it was womanhood, not manhood, that was most commonly and thoroughly explored. There was also a huge connection to horror. I’ll be digging deeper into classic Mexican horror, but the parallels are blatant right off the bat (and we’ll be showing their version of Dracula, arguably better than the Lugosi rendition, at some later date), which seem to have a knack for expressionist lighting. In fact, one of the earliest Mexican talkies was an expressionist riff called Dos Monjes, a “different perspective” story that reeks of Rashomon, which would come out almost twenty years later. They were in on the ground the floor all along. But nah, let’s keep thinking Mexico never did anything cool until Bunuel flew in.
As opposed to Argentina, who I’d say ironically modeled their noirs more faithfully after the U.S. despite its strained relationship with them (fascism works in mysterious ways), Mexico had more of a knack for blending the neorealist sentiment with the studio execution: the cityscape was a nightmare, the acting style was bold, bold, bold, and the soundtracks seemed straight out of a symphony in Valhalla. Specific tropes, like the doppleganger, were strangely rehashed and put at the fore (as in La Otra, a very cool straight melodrama). New influences, like Bunuel in the 50’s, sparked a more political fire in the new wave of Mexican directors, and by the 60’s, seemingly every fucking guy in Central and South America with a camera had their own “revolutionary” philosophy on cinema. But the Epoca de oro from the 30’s to the 50’s was, despite/because of their own financial constraints and exploitation, just as personal and exciting a cinema as Hollywood was, or Bollywood is, or Hong Kong was/is. They created and owned an entire World of Noir.

Essential Movies:

Crepusculo, Aventurera, En la palma de tu mano, La otra, Distinto amanecer, La noche avanza, La mujer del puerto, Sensualidad, Salon Mexico

Key Figures:

Keep in mind, this list would be the equivalent of showing someone a list of some great Japanese filmmakers and actors for the first time. These are all huge names of vast talent that simply don’t have global name recognition yet, so dive in head-first, wherever. Personally, I found the cabareteras an easier segue than the straight melodramas, not because of how similar they are to American classical noir, but because of how viscerally thrilling they are. They are not only easy to enjoy, but at their best, are also daunting, challenging morality pieces and gender explorations. Classic melodramas like Crepusculo are fantastic as well, some of my all time favorites. If you’re unfamiliar with the soap operaesque over-the-top Mexican acting style, it may be a little much at first, but only takes a minute or two to get used to. I started Crepusculo a little confused, and left it drooling.

2014.06.03 21:28 brianwantsblood Sorry Not Sorry [Part 5/14]

Dragón, seeing that Tad is dazed, runs to the ropes and attempts a springboard moonsault. Executed to perfection, but Tad stands up and catches her. He lets out a yell and then hits a bone-shattering Oklahoma Slam.
Paisner: Oh, what a move, is he going to go for the early win?
Tad picks Mujer off the ground by her hair. He delivers a closed fist punch to the face which sends her right back down. He walks towards her legs, picks up her left leg by the boot, and delivers a nasty DDT to her ankle/lower leg.
Crowd: OOOOOOOOOOH!
Woodbridge: And now he's going to go to work, wearing her down
Paisner: This sick BASTARD, is going to enjoy it too.
Tad rubs his hands together and lets out a maniacal laugh. He bends over and gets right in the face of Dragón, who is semi-conscious on the ground.
Rodrickson: BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT, you dumb bitch!
Paisner: I'd like to take this time, by the way, to apologize to any of you who have young kids watching.
Woodbridge: I don't! Grow a pair, ya' sissies!
Tad picks up Mujer, who stuggles, but can't break free. Tad puts her in a powerbomb clutch and lifts her up. Mujer tries her hardest to counter, but gets rocked with a huge powerbomb. Tad goes for the cover.
1…
2…
3 – no! Mujer Dragón kicks out!
Paisner: Dragón just barely managing to get her shoulder up.
Woodbridge: That spicy young lady still has some fight left in her!
Paisner: Spicy...? (Paisner lets out a sigh.)
Dragón is on all fours, about to get to her feet when Tad runs up and delivers a stiff kick to the gut. He gets into a full mount position and begins hammering away at her face. Left, right, left, right. Punch after punch, until Dragón blocks one. She catches his arm, brings her legs up towards Tad's backside, and sends him over with half monkey flip/half arm drag over her head. She stands up, and keeps a hold of his arm. She quickly picks him up by the arm, and runs to the turnbuckle. Mujer leaps onto the top rope, does a backflip sending herself behind Tad and turns that momentum into another armdrag. The fans applaud.
Paisner: I think we might be seeing another gust of wind from Mujer Dragón here!
Woodbridge: Ain't this great!?
Crowd: WOOOOHOOOOOO!
Tad is getting to his feet, when Dragón begins to kick his legs. She delivers 2 low kicks to Tad's left leg, and then a mid kick with her right leg to his rib cage. While Tad is on his knees, Mujer puts him in a crucifix submission hold.
Tai Ni Wong: Do you want to tap?
Rodrickson: Hell NO!
Tad makes to his feet and runs to the ropes. Dragón quickly releases the hold. Tad begins to rotate his shoulders when Dragón grabs his head and pushes him over the ropes.
Paisner: I wouldn't want to be in Tad Rodrickson's shoes right now.
Woodbridge: I know, he might make you pay for 'em, and we all know how you like paying for things.
Tad is standing, but dazed. Dragón takes this opportunity to strike. She runs towards the ropes, jumps onto the top rope, and delivers an incredible springboard corkscrew moonsault. This move sends both of their heads into the steel guard rails.
1!
2!
3!
4!
Paisner: Strangely enough, Tad seems to have gotten the better of that impact.
5!
Tad makes it to his feet, and tosses a visibly bloodied Dragón back into the ring.
Woodbridge: The blood is just pouring out of Mujer Dragón's mask now!
Tad takes Dragón over to the corner. She's limp.
Paisner: This has been a great match, but we need to stop this!
Tad is already in position for the TadRod, and he hits it!
1…
2…
3!
DING DING DING
Paisner: Thank God she's breathing.
Again, Tad's music plays. He quickly rolls out of the ring and begins to walk back to the locker room.
Crowd: BOOOOOOOO!
Paisner: There were a lot of people, myself included, that had serious doubts about Tad Rodrickson's condition coming into this match. That man was in the hospital less than two weeks ago! But even if he wasn't fully healed, he showed these fans that he's got a lot of fight!
Stokes: The time of the fall: 13:33, here is your winner, TAD RODRICKSON!
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Woodbridge: That was just an old-school war!
Tai Ni Wong and a doctor help Mujer to her feet as the crowd respectfully applauds and cheers. She makes it backstage under her own power.
Paisner: Well ladies and gentlemen, coming up next. “Vile” Vic Studd, not takin’ too kindly to the drugging and the dicks on his face and whatever else happened that night, has found a partner and will be taking on the World’s Sexiest Tag Team. Here’s a quick look at what’s going on there.
A video package recapping the previous events shows.
We come back to Kate Stokes in the ring.
Stokes: The following tag team contest is scheduled for one fall with a 30 minute time limit! Introducing first... at a total combined weight of 486 pounds... "Vile" Vic Studd and "The Japanese Pneumatic Nibbler" Fukoyu Azhodai!
Paisner: The fuck is a pneumatic nibbler?
Woodbridge: Cuts sheet metal. Some of the larger models can event cut through stainless steel up to .276 inches thick at a rate of 5.2 feet per minute. Not much of a handy man are ya, Paisner?
Vic Studd comes sauntering down to the ring in his trademark black & silver sequins robe to the tune of "I Touch Myself" by the Divinyls followed by a man we can only assume is Fukoyu Azhodai though his entire face is covered with a black mask. Crudely drawn on tattoos cover his entire body, looking more like Japanese car logos then actual characters from the Japanese language.
Paisner: I don't think that is the Fukoyu Azhodai we saw at Riker Island State Correctional Facility earlier this week. In fact, it looks more like Jimmy Chonga in a mask covered in sharpie ink.
Wodbridge: Looks like Vic's prison break didn't quite go as planned.
Vic struts up the ring steps as "Fukoyu Azhodai" just keeps walking straight into the side of the ring, before feeling his way around to find the bottom rope and rolls himself into the ring. Vic does a little shimmy as he strips off his robe revealing his classic dark purple tights with "Studd" written on the back. The fans fill the ring with streamers and Vic looks around and chuckles to himself. As he meticulously folds his robe, preparing to hand it to referee Harry Undersach, "Fukoyu" bumps into him causing Vic to drop it.
Crowd: OOOOOOOOOOOH!
Vic smacks "Fukoyu" in the back of the head and shoves him into their corner, berating him the entire time.
Paisner: This... should be interesting to say the least.
Stokes: And their opponents... at a total combined weight of 292 pounds... Gwen West and "Sexy" Bruce Rodgers - THE WORLD'S SEXIEST TAG TEAM!
Bruce Rodgers and Gwen West head to ringside dancing to the tune of R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)" wearing their matching silk robes with "World's Sexiest Tag Team" stitched on the back. The two hop on the ring apron and strip off their robes much to the delight of the fans in attendance, before stepping through the ropes and posing on opposite neutral turnbuckles to many many streamers before meeting in the center of the ring with a chest bump.
Paisner: Folks you may remember from last week Vic Studd picked up a rather... "tainted" victory over Gwen West with the help of a zippo lighter prompting The World's Sexiest Tag Team to roofie Vic Studd at The Orpheum Bar down in Tampa, Florida. And let's just say things didn't go to well for Vic Studd after that.
Woodbridge: Dickfaced by half the roster, pancakes stuck to his chest, and a used condom stuck in his mouth by Bruce Rodgers... yeah, I think saying things didn't go well for Vic is a bit of an understatement.
Bruce and Gwen put their hands together in their respective corner and high five.
Rodgers & West: DON'T GET PREGNANT!
