Re: Santiago under curfew

I went to the protests on Thursday and Friday. After a university found out and denounced that the “rubber bullets” the police were shooting were 80% metal, they kept using them... until around Wednesday or Thirsday. On Friday, I only heard 2 or 3 shots (against the dozens of shots we received on th...

Re: Santiago under curfew

Yesterday, a university study confirmed something that the state was lying about and that we all knew: the “rubber bullets” they are using are 20% rubber and 80% various metals, including lead. Demonstrations haven’t ceased at all, which is great. And two nights ago, during a demonstration a guy suf...

Re: Santiago under curfew

So, a few hours ago we had an important announcement from Congress. In a nutshell, the country is kickstarting the process for a new Constitution. This is important and significant because we are STILL living under the constitution created by Pinochet in 1980. It has undergone several changes throug...

Re: Santiago under curfew

Thank you ✌🏼 Last night, the dictator announced that the police will be allowing retired police people to join as reinforcements. That’s pathetic on so many levels. The regime wanted to go back to sending the military to the streets, but apparently the armed forces said no to that. Tomorrow (Thursda...

Re: Santiago under curfew

Well, I guess this might already be boring for some, but writing is good for me too... almost like a bit of a journal. Today was really rough and I spent most of my 3 hours there right behind the first line... I saw 3 people injured by gunshots, and at least a dozen by rubber bullets. Today, after b...

Re: Santiago under curfew

Today there’s a general strike and there’s going to be massive demonstrations all over the country. I wouldn’t be surprised if later in the evening or night the dictator sends the military to the streets. The value of the Chilean peso keeps dropping relative to the dollar, and since the demonstratio...

Re: New sound: Delicious Grace

Yeah, that’s another possibility. Maybe he’s trying to rack up some plays on YouTube (I think one of his songs has over 1,000 views.) Not sure why bother. It’s not as if he’s getting any money or anything out of it. The only 5 likes he gets per song are his bandmembers.

I can assure you with 100% certainty that it is not a prank nor a 'social experiment'. It's pure lack of talent and a desperate need of approval.

Re: Santiago under curfew

Two days ago in Plaza Italia, the place where I usually go to demonstrate, the police started shooting pellets. A guy was shot in both eyes and lost them. As he was receiving surgery yesterday, a relatively small crowd of people gathered outside the clinic to show support. The police went there and ...

Re: Santiago under curfew

Thank you. Yeah, that’s the go-to live stream for Santiago’s main square. Today I won’t be able to go, as I’m visiting a friend who’s on the clinic, getting treatment for multiple sclerosis. By the way, every day there are anywhere between 5 and 10 big, major demonstrations in Santiago. Dozens more ...

Re: New sound: Delicious Grace

I'm feeling in a more positive mood than usual today. So here's something: Your songs in general (including this one) are not only very poorly recorded and composed, but lack anything remotely attractive. As long as your songs lack a hook, a mood, 'colour'... they will not work. Your songs are compl...

Re: Santiago under curfew

It is a bit surreal, that's true. Most days, at some point I see myself in the middle of this, and then I look West and see a sea of people... I look East, and another sea of people, all waving flags and chanting. I see the clouds of tear gas, I hear the gunshots... and it's just surreal, partly bec...

Re: does anyone on this forum speak Portuguese?

It’s something like “Stoner rock, big-sounding and that doesn’t *really* sound like stoner rock. Silly/weird?” And then it goes on.

It basically says “it’s sort of stoner rock, but at the same time not quite.”
