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..."

ELIZABETH TAYLOR (1932- 2011)

The girl with the violet eyes had an almost disturbing doll woman face in the body of a child since her Lassie movies and National Velvet. Her eight marriages and seven husbands (Richard Burton: lucky twice). The "sister" of Monty Clift. Maggie the Cat, in my favorite movie of hers: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Jimmy Dean and Rock Hudson fighting for her love in the epic americana Giant. The first to earn a million dollar contract, and forever Cleopatra, in Cleopatra. Martha in Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf. With Hudson again plus Kim Novak and Tony Curtis in The Mirror Cracked. Her smoking habit and premature delicate health. Her activism fighting Aids.The tabloids...

Asking to my mother, when i was around ten, about the best actress in the world: Elizabeth Taylor, was her straight answer. Today i don't think mom was too wrong.

Farewell, Violet Eyes...









Maggie, the Cat

WOODY ALLEN IN STOCKHOLM

Last sunday Diana and me went to see The Woodster and his New Orleans Jazz Band playing at the very respectable Cirkus Stockholm. The following is a piece of guerrilla filmmaking. Forbidden taking pictures and recording any sounds. Hence, the shaky camera. But what don't we do for you, Dear Guelylanders. We made this little video with a piece of the action. Enjoy!

LA LITERATURA FANTASTICA (Rara conferencia de Borges)

Hace unos dias Rafael Noé sugería la elaboración de una clasificación de la Literatura Fantástica. Recordé que las bóvedas de la Biblioteca de Guelyland guardan un rarísimo ejemplar de una casi desconocida obra y no dudé que muchos borgesianos se verían gratamente sorprendidos por la existencia de este librito (folleto?) de meras veinte páginas.
Ignorada incluso por la erudita bibliografía de Becco "La Literatura Fantástica" (Ediciones Culturales Olivetti. Buenos Aires, 1967) es acaso una obra inédita en la internet, ya que pasé buscándola varios dias sin dar con élla. Compruebo que al momento de escribir esta nota Iberlibro ofrece una vanidosa y singular copia por doscientos Euros y me siento muy contento de poder ofrecérselas completa sólo y porque si. Las letras son pequeñas pero se bajan las fotos de los textos y... Voilá!
Es la versión taquigráfica de una conferencia pronunciada por Borges en la inauguración del ciclo cultural 1967 de la Escuela Camilo y Adriano Olivetti un cada vez más lejano viernes 7 de abril...



















Borges, un viernes, 7 de abril de 1967
