Sunday: played with La National Film Chamber Orchestra at Malba. 3 action movies about spies. the second was my favorite. possibly one of the best shows of LNFCO
Monday: recording at Canal 7 with La National Film Chamber Orchestra. a selection of comic short films. some laurel & hardy, chaplin, etc. in the evening I played at Ciudad Cultural Konex with La Bomba de Tiempo, a superb percussion ensamble directed by Santiago Vazquez (photo). Mr Hugo Fattoruso played also as guest. later I drove to Maria's to say hi to her and Charly. I ended up recording guitars until 5:30 am. magically I remembered much of the songs. back home very tired, but happy.
Tuesday: rehearsal with Francisco in the morning, a nap at home, rehearsal with Flopa in the evening.

a very good photo by dino trentalance (www.elacople.com): with francisco bochaton at la trastienda a few weeks ago.
last night we played with fran at centro cultural torcuato tasso, in the neighborhood of san telmo. full house. a shared bill with palo pandolfo. the band sounded good. our drummer is recovering from a broken ancle and my self 90% recovered from apendicytis surgery. my setup: burns electric+ fuzz factory + rat + big muff + roland dd20 delay stereo into a marshall jcm900 and a little fender projunior. I liked the sound of this setup.
after the show dinner at la academia with fran and matias. good conversation.
this saturday's gig with flopa at auditorio san rafael was cancelled. again, one more!!! one more post cromagnon effect. this city's government has definitely gone too far. no place where rock can be played. in this case the argument is that the venue is located in a residencial area so no muci can be played. I doubt flopa and myself with guitars and f's vocals would disturb the hood at 21hs....this is turning scary. see emocionhomicida.blogspot.com for more info on the subject.
interview for canal 7 yesterday at home. valentina visited later from barcelona and got along wonderfully with little baby.
now listening to haco's band
my mother's birthday today

recordings with flopa at casa frida in the morning and afternoon. I used my podXTlive (basically ac30 and line 6 clean sounds, also some tremolos, rats and big muffs). great to be back at this studio after long time. in the past I've recorded there with mg, with juana, with sama, with the mpgs, with nikada, with the buenos aires guitar circle, with gomez, with laura levy and many more projects. hernan has modified it again (he always does). the new piano in a cozy room, a new window...all improvements
time off with baby: a visit to the shopping mall.
cancelled recording session with matias in the evening. need to recover. we moved the session for tomorrow evening.
chatted with sama, he's in atlanta with cerati

la congreso world templation was on last saturday: full house! we scheduled a new show for september 15th. after the show dinner at pippo with the franovs and the vertigos. traditional vermicellis.
sunday off with the family. a visit to club palermo. baby watched a voleyball game, very interested.
today la national film chember orchestra played at canal 7, national tv. the performance will be broadcasted in a few weeks and we'll play there regularly, perhaps weekly. we played buster keaton movies and a fragment of dr caligari. here some photos from my place and the endless corridors of canal 7.

read nile rodger's interviews
I played with vertigo colectivo last thursday at c.c. borges. skay and poli came to the show and as allways were inmensely supportive and sweet. I like daniel's new songs a lot.
from c.c. borges I ran to c.c. torcuato tasso where I played with francisco bochaton. a hot gig. loud. fran smashed his guitar against the drums by the end of the show. wild. the guitar survived. I wonder how.
pain in my little finger, due to my weak left wrist, came back in milder mode during vc's show.
listening to robert's queer space harmonic minor, which I just dowloaded from dgmlive.com. beautiful.
I had a significant dream last night
in a few hours I will be playing in templum with santiago vazquez, ale franov and mono fontana. now I must rest and practice.
the anniversary of mg's birth last tuesday. here's a photo of hers with charly.
