Welcome to Lindo's World...

Broke college student at IUPUI, just trying to get some funds and did i mention I'm studying Electrical Engineering Technology?

We live as though waiting
for an infinite assignation. Or
to be called to the phone
by the Ineffable.

I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents

Berso sa Metro

ikissjlo:

I’ve seen the Pasig river sparkle against the sunrise. I had witness the saddest sunset against the old establishments in the heart of Manila. They became part of my everyday battle against life.

Al pederte to a ti, tú y yo hemos perdido;

Yo, porque tú eras…

Lakes and Volcanos

robinswantravels:

Today we had a training session on the top of a volcano! After the group orientation we climbed up to the top to get a view. Because of the sulfurous smoke rising from the dormant volcanic crater it was hard to see much of anything and made me cough. But once we climbed up a bit further you could get a view of Lake Managua, Lake Nicaragua, Volcan Mototombo and several other volcanos—visual proof of why Nicaragua is called the “land of lakes and volcanos.”

365 Day Movie Challenge (2014) - #249: This Gun for Hire (1942) - dir. Frank Tuttle
This very well-made crime drama (I’m not sure if it would be called a “noir,” exactly) stars a host of great actors: Alan Ladd, Veronica Lake, Robert Preston, Laird Cregar, Tully Marshall, Marc Lawrence, Pamela Blake, Frank Ferguson, Victor Kilian and Pamela Farr. I think I really fell in love with Alan Ladd with this film - bad boy syndrome, you might say. Even in black-and-white you can see just how remarkably big and blue his eyes were, and he’s just so… beautiful. That’s really the only word for it. Photographed exquisitely by John F. Seitz, though, everyone looks great. Personally I think that this film works better than The Blue Dahlia (which I watched again for the first time in many years, right after This Gun on TCM). One issue: the part of the plot that deals with the senator doesn’t seem to actually be of much importance, but maybe it’s supposed to be a MacGuffin. Otherwise, I really like this movie.

What if

childatsoul:

What if blacks and whites switched roles in society

What if the whites were known for living in ghettos and having it hard on the streets. And blacks were the ones in suburbs and having ” black privilege”

What if Europeans were the ones enslaved by Africans and brought on boat to the US

What if…
