“If you’re going to try, go all the way.
Otherwise, don’t even start.
This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind.
It could mean not eating for three or four days.
It could mean freezing on a park bench.
It could mean jail.
It could mean derision.
It could mean mockery — isolation.
Isolation is the gift.
All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it.
And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds.
And it will be better than anything else you can imagine.
If you’re going to try, go all the way.
There is no other feeling like that.
You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire.
You will ride life straight to perfect laughter.
It’s the only good fight there is.”

Charles Bukowski

Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
An apparition
Of twilight visions
A final mission
Of superstition
Reactivated
Now automated
Appropriated
Investigated
Global tectonics
Psycho robotic
Plasma bionic
Bred supersonic
A new translation
For integration
Your invitation
G-L-O-R-I-A
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Hyper creation
Or reinvention
Love and affection
Gaining attention
United Nations
Interrelations
A declaration
Of hypertension
Emerging summits
Pre-emptive plummet
We drop atomic
To shooting comets
The controversial
Ultra commercial
Now universal
G-L-O-R-I-A
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Letra e música de Midnight Juggernauts

Depois de alguma labuta, lá consegui reunir pelo menos um par de resistentes para ir ao cinema. Não se tratava propriamente de ir ver um filme, mas sim ir ver mais uma obra-prima geek do Peter Jackson que tem esmiuçado o universo de Tolkian como ninguém.

Desta vez o terceto não ficou desiludo, como de resto tem vindo a ser hábito, nos filmes de Jackson. Uma aventura e um deleite do imaginário do fantástico reproduzido com pormenores e detalhes que só a tecnologia moderna é capaz de reproduzir. Talvez os efeitos 3D sejam uma menos-valia que cansa os olhos, um produto para justificar não ter optado por um torrent.

Mas talvez o filme fosse só o pretexto para rever os amigos. Uma espécie de reviver o passado, buscando algo em comum do passado semi-recente, recriado novamente para uma situação de conforto e auto-estima. Uma amizade que se proteja num tempo de cada vez mais ausência de tempo para conviver.
