OS PESCADORES

The sun descends gradually, majestic and serene, the whole golden sky light forms a road connecting the beach to infinity, a wide road, gold and alive begins at my feet, the bloody foam, and the sun appears. O my love, do not believe in the pettiness of life, do not doubt: give me your hand and we'll go for that road right into heaven! / O Sol desce pouco e pouco, majestoso e sereno, no céu todo doirado e a luz forma uma estrada que liga o areal ao infinito, uma estrada larga, de oiro vivo, que começa a meus pés, na espuma ensanguentada, e chega ao Sol. Ó meu amor, não acredites na vida mesquinha, não duvides: dá-me a tua mão e vamos partir por essa estrada fora direitos ao céu! / Raul Brandão in OS PESCADORES

Meet Popcorn :)

Hello! And welcome to a new exciting adventure of BB here at Bicandoland LOL! Dear friends_first and foremost I would like to apologize for the long,long,loooooong absence from this blog,but sometimes life itself can be awful busy and with it also the need for a little extra time to do the things we love (in this case,posting a few words on a blog). I think that you would like to know that the baby pigeon I was caring about was strong enough to take care of Itself and now he is free to roam the skies in that infinite joy of freedom that only birds know. I can only hope that he is doing well and caring for baby chicks of his own ;) Meanwhile;Another little creature crossed paths with yours truly. Meet Popcorn:
Popcorn is a female Hedgehog that sort of bumped into me along the way.She was badly out of shape,underweight,and fully covered by parasites (fleas and ticks). After a few hardships she became stronger.Needless to say this was a hard task to accomplish since I had very little knowledge about the hedgehog habits, and besides I was nursing a creature that always lived in the wild and was now in a strange environment. After a lot of research (And I do mean a lot) http://www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk/ I became more and more aware of the hedgies needs to regain health again. Another problem imposed,I had no Hedgehog food at the local Pet Shop stores since hedgehogs are not the most eclectic pets here in Portugal. I found myself in a conundrum,and cat food was the only available food source I could find in such short notice. But thank´s to the generosity of http://www.spikesworld.co.uk/spikes_hedgehog_food.html my little bundle of joy is happy and very well fed. I cannot thank you enough :) Well that´s all for now,will talk to you soon and I do hope you all enjoy Spring in good health among family and friends!
Bye for now,see you soon!

WORTH SHARING!



Henry Rollins' Letter to a Young American/PORTUGUESE/JAPANESE/CANADIAN AND SO ON...

Transcript
Henry Rollins: Young person, you’ll find in your life that sometimes your great ambitions will be momentarily stymied, thwarted, marginalized by those who were perhaps luckier, come from money, where more doors opened, where college was a given--it was not a student loan; it was something that Dad paid for--to where an ease and confidence in life was almost a birthright, where for you it was a very hard climb. Okay, that happens all the time. Some of the greatest Americans, some of the greatest thinkers, artists, architects, politicians and other movers, shakers and creators all over the world have come from very meager beginnings like my favorite American Abraham Lincoln. And so, just because you come from nothing you must not let that be something that holds you back.

And you will encounter people who never have to pay in full. They get to wreck the room and never have to clean it. They can get all the way through high school and never understand where a dollar comes from because they just get it given to them. I went to school with guys like that. You’ve had presidents like that. You’ve had friends like that and you’ve suffered.

Your humility has been tried. Your patience has been tried. Your resolve and your ambition has been tried. You cannot let these people make you feel that you have in any way been dwarfed or out classed. You must really go for your own and realize how short life is. You got what you got, so you have to make the most of it. You really can’t spend a whole lot of time worrying about his. You really have to go for your own. If you have an idea of what you want to do in your future, you must go at it with almost monastic obsession be it music, the ballet or just a basic degree. You have to go at it single-mindedly and let nothing get in your way. And that’s why you’re young. That’s why you can survive on no sleep, Top Ramen noodles and dental floss and still look good. And take advantage of that great energy you have, the fact that you can do an all-nighter.

All the people you admire, from Mohamed Ali to any politician, they work and work and work. A guy like Bill Clinton, not everyone’s favorite, Rhodes Scholar, he’s smart for a reason. Got a great mind, but he sat and he shoved a whole bunch of information in there and he learned how to connect the dots. And so can you. Your president right now is a man who got where he is through very hard work and scholarships, mainly hard work and application and discipline. If these people can do it, why not you?

It is very, very easy, though, to feel smaller, to feel less than when you see people with an advantage, walk where you struggle, who have ease of motion where you are constricted. It can be a real shot to your morale. It can be flummoxing to a degree where you’re almost paralytic. You got to keep picking yourself up and reaching for it. And that’s the long and short of it because if you don’t it won’t get done.

Adieu Monsieur :(

Jean Giraud, one of France's leading comics artists, has died in Paris at the age of 73 after a long illness.

He drew for more than 50 years, under various names, but was most widely known as Moebius.

He was popular in the US and Japan, working with legend Stan Lee and manga artists, as well as in his homeland

He also worked on design concepts and storyboards for a number of top science fiction films, including Alien, Tron, The Abyss and The Fifth Element.

Giraud trained at art school and turned to comics after working as an illustrator in the advertising and fashion industries.

His best known work in his native country was probably the Lieutenant Blueberry character but he also worked on the Silver Surfer with Stan Lee.

The Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art staged a major Giraud retrospective in 2010.

Feeding

This baby pigeon was brought to me a couple of weeks ago starving to death and cold. It was found in some street corner from Lisbon. Did my best to keep i´m well fed and warm,and I must say that I am happy with the results (let me tell you it´s no easy task to feed one of these,lol_will post some more actual photos soon) He´s gotten bigger now,just having some problems because the little guy is refusing to eat on its own,and according to a pigeon breeder I know, four weeks its more than due time for it to peck some seeds without my help.



It flowned for the very first time today :D

Ele foi seguramente um daqueles presentes inesesperados que continuam a dar e dar. Eu e a minha cara metade estamos muito orgulhosos dele.

Obrigado puto por fazeres parte da nossa vida,nós amamos-te!
