some things on a Sunday

Showered, breakfasted, caffeinated and waiting for the first of three pupils having lessons today. The Met Office says it's going ot be sunny today but the sky is standard issue battleship grey today.

Went to a goth club in Camden Town, 'No Tears', organised by Cavey Nik of Dead & Buried. A good time with friends -different petals of the wenn diagram of the london goth world. A strange counterpoint (for me) with the latin club upstairs, occasionally pumping out salsa amdst a barrage of what people really listen to in those countries (like my original Venezuela) which is no longer salsa but that abomination, reggeton (sp?) which is a sort of latin hip hop with very bland music and, most often, extremely offensive, misogynistic, violent words. But the occasional bursts of salsa made me think of how I hated that music when it was the mainstream in the working class neighbourhood in West Caracas where I was growing up, incapable of dancing it, etc and which I now I see of one of the symptoms of social alienation of young Flavio. Have I outgrown that? I feel much more at home now, or did until three years ago. Odd how those things work. May elaborate on this at a later point as it has for me lots of contradictions and questions about myself.
