Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.

How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!

He notado que todo aquello que me define o destruye dura exactamente dos semanas y que su final lo dicta mi ángel extermindador. (Espero que no te moleste que haya utilizado el pronombre mi para referirte). Al fin y acabo, qué podría hacer yo si no tuviera alguien que me diga lo que ya se? 

 

Reportandome desde mi cueva.

Hace un par de días comencé a tomar clases de francés con un amigo de hace años y mientras tonteábamos ante las lecciones de gramática que ambos sabíamos, dibuje mi mano. Es curioso porque siempre lo hago ver mas adulto y masculino de lo que realmente es. 

Creo que tiene que ver con la imagen que uno tiene de si mismo, por cierto entre aquellas algarabías salió el titulo de algo que próximamente subiré por acá: Confesiones de una ninfómana desagradecida. 

Suena prometedor.

Berlinde De Bruyckere.:Suffering and Protection
Flemish sculptor creates sculptures and drawings of suffering human bodies that resemble nothing so much as reality. It mixes in his sculptures on religious grounds and media images and writes the Christian motif of the human suffering in the contemporary era. The confrontation with the body that engages the artist led to questions about the ethics of our society and are the place to fundamental questions about the nature of the human being.
These disturbing and uncannily lifelike sculptures by Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere are incredibly visceral and eerie. The repulsion instinctively triggered in the viewer comes from their verisimilitude, and the sense of reality of this nameless, grotesque, distorted, half-human, seemingly fluid flesh; combined with their beauty, the delicate, subtle mottling of colors, the pure realistic visceral fleshiness of the works, and their technical grace.
