Como notarán, acabo de cambiar la plantilla y el diseño del blog. En principio, se han borrado los comments (Que eran de haloscan y no de blogger) Veré si puedo recuperarlos. También algunos posts con fotos grandes hacen que las letras queden mal recortadas. Avísenme si recorren el blog y notan que algo anda mal. Ahora que tengo un poco más de tiempo, trataré de arreglarlo. Mientras, manden nuevos comments que yo prometo actualizar el blog con mayor frecuencia.
Buen 2009 para todos los que me conocen y/ o siguen este blog.

Como decía un pariente: se está muriendo gente que antes no se moría ...
Un saludo y buen 2009

Pregunto a los que anden navegando por aquí. El blog se ve centrado con demasiado margen a los costados (y por ende más o menos chico) por mi resolución de pantalla? O todo el mundo lo ve igual? En ese caso, tendré que cambiar otra vez de plantilla.

yo creo que es por blogger, a mí me dá el mismo espacio que a vos.
Yo me quedo con el fallecimiento de Teo Macero, como el más representativo de mi onda. Saludos desde Barcelona que está de frío.

¡por favor, cambiá la plantilla! esta, marrón, como de libro, es un bodrio... la otra era más linda

feliz 2009, por una plantilla nueva

Norberto said...

OK Diego. Tenés razón. A mi tampoco me gusta. Denme un par de días y pondré plantilla nueva.

Por un 2009 lleno de música, al fin y al cabo, de las pocas cosas que ayudan a vivir mejor.

diego said...

con el chiste de la plantilla no te comenté que cuando me enteré (varios meses después) de la muerte de klaus dinger sentí mucha tristeza

¡sí! por un 2009 lleno de música

Galois said...

Saludos Norberto. Por un buen 2009 y con menos muertes, por favor.

P.S.: a mí también me gustaba más la anterior plantilla. Pero supongo que las mudanzas siempre son medio traumáticas.
La resolución que uso es 1280x800 y sí, se ve un poco estrecho todo.
P.S.2: la muerte que más me pegó fue la de Esbjörn Svensson, cuyo trío conocí a principios del mismo año fatídico. Un tipo talentosísimo y que murió absurdamente en el mejor momento de su carrera.

Primera vez que paso por el blog. Está interesantísimo.
Saludos.

Sí, mucha gente. Me dan pena Lasse Holmer de los Samlas y el gran Hector Zazou de los míticos Barricades y ZNR. TAmbién, el genio pionero de Henri Chopin (adalidad de la sound poetry) y George Brecht (un grande de Fluxus)
La muerte de otro fluxus, el danés Henning Christiansen, debería iniciar una serie de reinvindicaciones en cadena a su genio ignoto.
Si sólo tuviera todo el tiempo del mundo...
un abrazo

Pues si lo de Henri Chopin es algo muy triste, yo lo estaba descubriendo recién, ando muy interesado en la poesia sonora. Lo de Yma Sumac tambien fue muy triste aunque felizmente la Sumac pudo limar algunas asperezas que tenia con el Perú hace unos años, que vino para un homenaje q se le hizo. Pero quiza la perdida mas terrible para mi, por lo que significaba para el under aqui y por la forma tan tragica de su muerte, fue la de jorge "coco" revilla, de silvania.
