ABOUT GUELYLAND

"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME


Opening this door, this very door, many many times during dark cold nights, I heard Dorothy Gale's voice saying "There's no place like home", then, smiling to myself, proceed to insert my key, The key.
Soon, very soon, I'll be moving to a bigger and closer to the city apartment, leaving this place, my place, the real and ultimate "My Space". And , I have to tell you folks, there is already the taste of nostalgia in the writing of this. Came here in the year 2000 and since many things happen here. Lots of good memories. Literally the end of a relationship, of a symbiosis . This place will never be the same, ever again, because soon it will be the "home sweet home" of somebody else that will populate it with new things and voices. I just wanted to put some pics of it to posterity. Some of them are old, already memories, but soon all of them will be, so...
It's like as if some part of me is gonna stay there/here and in some "spiritual" way it is. I guess my soon to be old home will be frozen here in Guelyland for me to see it, and i think is good.
The Royal Palace of Guelyland, it's headquarters and heart (or should i say in a more rational way brain?), it's sometimes fortress of solitude and sometimes love nest, my home. Each corner, wall and bit of floor is loaded of me, my stuff and what makes me myself. Strange feeling cos i won't miss it but somehow I will. Is a good relationship coming to and end for a better one. We don't do that with fellow humans and the house is just a place between walls, but still... Thank you for all these years, for been my home.

What a lovely place you've got?

But there is so many things in it. My house is full of books and stuff, and there is no more place for anything. That's a problem.

Y esa sala, ya conociamos tus fotos en youtube, pero digame si es que no era contra el codigo de etica de editorial Omega no tener un dvd de Roma en esa videoteca.
Y para nu nuevo librero (me parecio ver tomos de Dumas alli, jajaja) le tengo una sorprecilla que lo hara a primera impresion reir, salido de la mente galactica de Tomita, de quien reproduzco su misteriosa y profetica advertencia antes de enviarmelo a mi "masmorra", y dijo asi: "para que se lo des a alguien que lo pueda leer" y claro va para alla maestro!...Manhana lunes 11 de mayo se lo mando.
Le falta un disco de vinilo del tango "alma de bohemio", jajaja

Thank you Valentin VN! Too bad i'm not modest enough and i gotta say that those pics are like more then a year old and there is much more stuff nowadays hence the moving.

Si Cuy, Stövargatan 26. Y bueno, esa pistita da a un parquecito, con árboles y columpios y el depar está como en un ovalo un poco cerrado, o sea que no es exactamente la calle solo pasan los carros de los que viven allí.
Agradecido adelantado por la sorpresa. Confío en tu comprobado buen gusto. Characias!!

Moving is always tough, but it sounds like it's for the best - as long as you take the books. I've got to respect a man who appreciates books.

Somebody famous once said, "A room without books is like a body without soul."

Good luck with the move...

Thanks, #167 Dad. Call me unpolite but one of the first things i do when i'm in somebody's house is checking the bookshelves. Get's you some idea of what goes in to peoples mind.

Alberto said...
