Back again, this time to show you my last week's playlist, some new tunes, some no so new and songs i can't take out of my head. I hope you will like them too.

- LEE FIELDS "Ladies"
Thanks to my homie Flavio Rodriguez, who introduced me to this amazing song, i don't know why but i got this one on repeat for a while now...

-COLDPLAY "Paradise"
They are back, and probably this one will be the best song from their new album "Mylo Xyloto" ...Great song and interesting video.

-VANESSA DA MATA ft. BEN HARPER " Boa Sorte/Good luck"
If you like brazilian classy music and you like Ben Harper, you will dig this one for sure, also on my repeat mp3, soft, good melody, great voices... we all need good luck!

-FRANK OCEAN "We all try"
Ok i have to confess im starting to be obsessed with Frank Ocean, i am listening to his album "Nostalgia,ultra" on and on, each song is worth it, but this could be my favourite one. But check all the other songs, you won't regreat it, amazing r&b,hip hop...

-THE WEEKND " The Knowing"
The Weeknd, is also one of my new discoveries, props to Flavio again, i love the atmosphera that the band creates on each song, plus also the video is worth seeing, you going to enjoy this one.

-THE XX "Crystalised"
I heard that they will be playing in Barcelona soon with Jamie Woon, thinking about maybe going to see them alive. Interesting band, nice tunes, great voice...perfect soundtrack for when im working.

-ACROSS FIVE APRILS "A year from now"
You never were just an option... A song with a story behind...

Hey there, it's been a while since i posted here, i taking my time, hehe...So im back with few updates for y'all.

As you may know last November 5th it was my birthday, and how did i celebrate it??party?not yet...went to Madrid for a bjj competition, my first one as a purple belt, and i am very happy to say that i won my weightclass (superheavy, one less than the last time and keep going down!). I fought against a good friend of mine from North of Spain, big and super strong guy...we had fought several times in the past, and he always beat me, but this time i did a more strategic fight...and i got the victory by points.

It was lot of fun to hang out there with my team mates and other friends from other teams from around Spain...big shout out to people like Quiñones, Alfredo, Echedey, Herminio and lots more.. that was a good bday present.

So im posting my fight and few cool pics from the tournament, called Copa Buddha Sport.

And the pics here:

I feel like sharing these two songs from Foo Fighters, in an acoustic version of each ot Foo Fighter is always a winner choice, i hope you will enjoy them as much as i do...plain and simple, i love this acoustic versions, really intense, the raw vocals, really deep, really sincere...

Foo Fighters - Everlong

(the chorus...)
And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

Foo Fighters - Best of you

(few lyrics...)
"Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
The life, the love you'd die to heal
The hope that starts the broken hearts
You trust, you must

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?"

-The bronze medal, so proud and happy-
Last month i went to Lisbon for their anual European Bjj Championship, probably the most important tornament in Europe with the biggest names and the higher level on the mats. I have to say it was an amazing experience, thank to my team mates, friends and specially to Yan Cabral, my master.
-Aranha Team-
-In the podium with my bronze medal-
We went there and did a great perfomance, gold medals for our girls in the team and im super happy to share with you guys that i got my first Bronze Medal, i made 3rd in an important tournament such is this one. I made it 3rd on my Blue belt weightclass in the Master division.
I did 5 fights in total, felt great on the mat, calm and alive, choked some dudes out and lost by points to a friend. So its a new big step for me and my brazilian jiu jitsu "career"... some pics from Lisbon.

-One of my fights...setting up the lapel choke-

-At the Open class, i lost this fight agains the winner of the Open class-

-Spain got gold medal at the teams section purple belt -76kg, congratulations!!-

-Eric Satgé, faixa preta...Aranha pride-

-Home celebration-


Last week i had the pleasure to go to the Skunk Anansie`s show, here in Barcelona. It was a birthday present from a good friend who bought the tickets long time ago. Oh man!! the show was amazing, Skin's voice is unreal, and intense non stop show that made all the crowd crazy and you could feel the amazing vibe.

If you don't know the band i suggest you to check them out right's not a new band, i liked them back in the 90's but i even like them more now. Their new album is beyond solid, every single song is worth it.

Here are video from their new record...

I haven't been to any hc shows for long time...i still listen to my good old tunes, but most of the new bands are boring and shows here suck big time. But i guess there is this band still going on that is trying to bring some of the old good spirit back that brings good memories and makes me shake from my chair...

So tomorrow im going to see TERROR once again, but this time should be better as they are coming with FIRST BLOOD and with the new record "Keepers of the Faith", which hits my player over and over and the lyrics get my blood tight like the old days...

TERROR - Keepers of the faith

First time I felt alive
I heard her voice and I knew her pain and strife
I roamed alone, death by my side
Nothing seemed right 'til you came into my life
I grabbed a hold to learn and grow
It was destined that you and I collide
My everything, my sacrifice
And I'll defend you 'til the day I die

Keepers of the faith
I will defend your name
Only true believers remain
The blood, the sweat we gave
Through all my joys and pains
You can't deny the keepers of the faith

I reach for you in troubled times
You spoke to me and made everything alright
I live through you, I'm by your side
It's safe to say that you truly saved my life

Keepers of the faith
I will defend your name
Only true believers remain
The blood, the sweat we gave
Through all my joys and pains
You can't deny the keepers of the faith

I live through you, I'm by your side
It's safe to say that you truly saved my life
I live through you, I'm by your side
It's safe to say that you truly saved my life
My everything, my sacrifice
And I'll defend you until the day I fucking die

Keepers of the faith
I will defend your name
Only true believers remain
The blood, the sweat we gave
Through all my joys and pains
You can't deny the keepers of the faith

Keepers of the faith
Only true believers remain
All the blood, the sweat we gave
You can't deny we're the keepers of the faith
Keepers of the faith


Well im back from the 8th European bjj Championship in Lisbon and the good news are that i did a good performance making a 3rd place, Bronze Medal, at my blue belt category, but you will have a post about all that very soon.
