Study of Planet Panic

Year 2050. Results from Deep Inter Laminar Scanner (SCA-Xラ25) show layers of the Planet Panic with certain details. New information revealed after the barrier layer (5) since these areas were unknown until now.  This is the real data and now it’s time for analysis.

During the last decades scientists created theories trying to find an explanation. Shamans and religious organizations (dying but still there) tried to modify their classical speech in order to accommodate the new facts. Results from scanner is a true test for all of them.

Note 1: “Real data will surpass imagination”. Think about this.

Note 2: Don’t be fooled by the cute monster in layer 7. He is highly poisonous and violent! He uses a harmless and kawaii looking as a mask.

Note 3: He is guarding a weird sphere.


In the Mood for Love

Recently I discovered some photos taken during the filming of In The Mood For Love in Angkor Wat. They are great and the reason is: The touch of reality is always the best ingredient.

Highly stylish. Probably each frame in that movie should be in a museum.

Jellyfish visit my notebook.

Jellyfish visited my notebooks. They look with shock the words of N. Maduro on the other page: “I went to the future and I came back. I saw all was ok.”

That’s a genius argument! You will need an even crazier argument to refute it. Think about it.

That's why the jellyfish-type beings prefer flowing with freedom. Dancing. Propagating.


Superluminal Spaceship

Unique proposal to travel at higher than speed of light. See my other brainy proposals for mankind here.

Year 2050. The new element “Vitesse-3c” (see Periodic Table of the Elements updated) found in a lost asteroid allows 10^3 times the speed of light. An harpoon made of that element is thrown and anchored in space time fabric. Then pull with energy and thrown it again. Easy.

Nose of the ship needs to be covered with Vitesse-3c as well so the whole machine can also travel at that speed. The vessel can carry massive troops, artillery or just passengers. Measures, stabilized control and other minor details for its design and manufacturing are left to scientists and engineers.

The main points here are:

1.) Ship must show an elegant style.
2.) Exquisite brownies will be served on board by militarized provodnitsa (проводница) who will keep order, etc.

First destination.... Planet Panic! Bon voyage!


New inks for fountain pen in use

I wanted to switch to permanent bulletproof inks long time ago. I was happy with my current colors after a long process of testing and trying new ones until I defined my palette. Adding the superpower of waterproof (and more other properties) could be a plus. Since I know the colors I want the task seemed easy. Just find a new brand with those colors and try.

Expert's voices about archive and conservative materials pushed me to change. It looks like cleaning and restoring a notebook in the future could be much easier with these bulletproof inks otherwise the inks goes away almost like magic. Have a look at this video to see by yourself.

Rohrer & Klinger is my first attempt. The colors are amazing, exactly what I was looking for. And the color's names very original for inks! I chose Carmen, Frida, Emma and Klara for this trip.

It's quite risky to start a new long trip without testing them in deep but I had to do it. New year, new trip, new notebook and... new inks.

Result of investigations coming soon!


Beauty in shapes

Authenticity is the key ingredient for everything. This model emanates reality therefore she has a special touch.

It's a draft and like this style a lot so this page will be a draft when finished. What a paradox!

The code

There is a code running inside us.

At least we know it's there. It drives us from the beginning and apparently we can't scape. Maybe we could manipulate DNA but that's just a code improving itself.

The code defines us. It creates our reality. Actually we are the code. It's ok.


Koh Tao and more

These are the last pages of my current notebook. Exploration days along some islands in Thailand and the coast.

Did you know Koh Tao means Turtle Island? Now you know.

A new home for my notebooks

Finally I completed this project which was delayed again and again during a few years. After the huge mistake in the box I used some years ago I decided to use a cardboard box. It's neither waterproof nor fireproof but it's made of archival quality cardboard, same as used in museums. It's supposed to be a barrier for acid and at the same time it protect the inside from dust.

I made it by myself so I can fix the measures to the notebooks. It looks an easy work but I had big problems to bend the cardboard because I used a thick one. I left spare room for a few more notebooks to come.

I love the result. Great looking and feeling.


Article in IDEAT

Article published in IDEAT China last year.

Many thanks to Tanya for the interview in Shanghai.


Geodesic Dome

There are new way to build houses because of new materials and mainly new ideas. Sharing information between minds is key and Internet makes posible.

Many other animals can create their home in hours or days and do it by themselves. Intelligent humans need years of work to pay others. In many cases the result is a low quality house and a aesthetic disaster. That's should be shocking enough to find other solutions.

A friend of me showed me Geodesic Dome as a solution. That's an example for houses. The main point here is to be applied to any other issue to solve in life in general.

Life is (should be) simple.

Article in The Guardian

Thanks to The Guardian for this article aired some weeks ago. British feeling. I can imagine a very British reader with the newspaper in the morning while taking tea in a B&B atmosphere.


Faye Wong

I'm happy to discover Faye Wong. Actually I did it longtime ago in the movie 2046 but I didn't realize the deep of this celebrity until last year.

It's a pleasure to draw stylish creations in the Cosmos.

Writing time

In order to reach your goals you have to work hard day and night.

Joking. I never agreed with that idea. I’m just posing in this warm and relaxing place in Ninh Binh, Vietnam. Actually I don’t even have a notebook in the table and I pretend to write with a spoon.


Habemus new notebook!

Starting new notebook with new year, more or less, which is a coincidence since I just start a new one with the old one is completed.

This time I wanted to go one step further and use as archival quality materials as possible. That means changing inks, paper and maybe leather cover.

I found new waterproof (and other magic properties) inks keeping the same colors and I show them in another post.

I tested quite a few high quality papers from a specialist shop. All laid papers in cream color and I fell in love with one of them called Burga because its texture and feeling. However it can't resist the eraser without breaking the external layer of papel so easily. A huge shock after I already bought quite a lot quantity. Conclusion: I continue using my trust Galgo paper 100g/m2 again.

The thickness is much more moderated than the former one, which became quite fat. Actually it's not "pocket" anymore so I decided to make something more portable. There is also a more important reason: Last notebook took me 2 years and I felt some risk when carrying it in my bag during some travels specially in dangerous areas. It could be a big lost if something happened to it. Shortening the time of use also reduce that risk.

I also used the same black leather. The cardboard now is stronger.

New adventures ahead for this baby.

Capsule hotels in Tokyo

Last time I visited Tokyo I tried some capsule hotels. Well, I also tested some other EXTREMELY weird accommodation sauna style I could talk about other day (probably the weirdest accommodation I've ever been).

Capsules are an experience for 2 or 3 days. Clean as Japanese standards and usually good located. But they are not ok for a relaxing period of time since its just a honeycomb gap and people are not bees.

Here some photos from different places.
Someone could think it's claustrophobic or washing machine feeling but it's not the case. Maybe a small earthquake during the night.

Next one is not a proper capsule but a tiny room with walls, etc. See the organized space and cleaning. All so great but the strong air con everywhere all the time.
