Barcelona: En Fuego

Last night was our first night in Barcelona: the second half of our trip and from what I can tell by niche número uno it also promises to be the more exciting half.

Don’t get me wrong. Paris is lovely. Rife with fashionable locals and drenched with European culture but most certainly the more bourgeois and tame of the two destinations.

Barcelona, in contrast is a beautiful old city with amazing architecture, abnormally high unemployment and a (connnected, no doubt) huge urban / street level music and art scene….not to mention the nightlife.

We are here during a week of several music festivals, which means our experience will likely over-index in that regard. And i will not be able to help capturing a selection of some of the best street art I can find. This will be a bit more difficult task than in Paris as just about every inch of this city is tagged with graffiti, so the actual art needs to be actively sought out with a finely tuned eye.

In the meantime, I present to you a couple shots of our first night’s experience: from an Asian-fusion dining experience at dos Pallilos to our stroll down La Rambla where we watched some street performers get their break dance on (before la policia broke it up. Finally, a few shots from the mucho caliente and very intimate flamenco performance we encountered at the Harlem Jazz club.

ThePopularitéBug

Being a popular kid isn't easy,you have to be cautious about every move of yours because you know that all eyes are on you.Not just the eyes that look up to you but also the eyes that love to see you in pain.You might have your own list of followers but with this list there exists the "popularity starved crowd" who wants to replace you.But when reality bites these morons and they're back to square one,hurt and angry with themselves they try to make you the victim of their moment of high adrenaline,just to make you suffer because you're better.They try to clean their head by ruining your perfect life.What's more is right then you realize that none of your "friends" are what they appear to be.You're broken,depressed .You feel the need to talk to someone of your own kind,someone who won't judge you and that's when you can find me at thepopularitébug,I promise to do anything and everything to help you out of your problem!Amen.

AMERICAN MALE

Often described as a blog, an online magazine, a journal. When examined further the description changes and it becomes a project, an objective, a mission. American Male is one simple thing. It is a collection of different thoughts and experiences so come share yours and be part of the narrative.
