Raconte - Moi Une Historie

Well this morning on my way to the office, I randomly heard a song about a frog by M83. The song makes me feel good, overloading happiness. their musical arrangements is genius, the way it's escalating slowly throughout the song, blooming smiles on my face, one by one musical instrument filling each other while the story of a frog being told by a cute voice, shaping a perfect harmony.

The tempo is sort of you are in the middle of experiencing a long journey with your best friends with a bunch of joy and happiness moment. The song lyric narrated by a kid, makes me think it depicts the pure essence of happiness being a children. It's sincerity and innocence.

When I got home, i was listening to the song again, i was quiet and keep rewinding the song for hours, analyzing the lyric and its musical arrangements until i fall asleep. That moment, when you're lost on something that really attract you or inspired you, for me it's a wonderful place to be.

Something i really missed in the couple of months.


LYRICS :

I heard about this frog
It's a very tiny frog
But it's also very special
You can only find it in the jungle
So far away from me
But if you find it and if you touch it
Your world can change forever

If you touch its skin
You can feel your body changing
And your vision also
And blue becomes red and red becomes blue
And your mommy suddenly becomes your daddy
And everything looks like a giant cupcake

And you keep laughing and laughing and laughing
Nothing is ever quite the same really
And after you finish laughing
It's time to turn into a frog yourself
It's very funny to be a frog
You can dive into the water
And cross the rivers and the oceans
And you can jump all the time and everywhere
Do you want to play with me?

We can be a whole group of friends
A whole group of frogs
Jumping into the streets
Jumping into the planet
Climbing up the buildings
Swimming in the lakes and in the bathtubs
We would be hundreds, thousands, millions
The biggest group of friends the world has ever seen
Jumping and laughing forever
It would be great, right?

In Learning English

why people who begin learning a second language suddenly throw this business, and how to create their own goals and motivation and pursue them as long as possible? is the fundamental factor in the absence of fires, desires and time?

Based on my own observations, i am inclined to assume that the makings of a static motivation can serve 4 reasons that a whale can be 4 special priorities for novice learners.

1. In many companies, the main factor of employment is the availability of English that at least at the intermediate or upper-intermediate level. Accordingly, when this skill is presence, it opens more doors and perspectives to be arranged at a very good job. In addition, in some countries, knowledge of a second languages is the norm, and to know only one language, quite a decent and acceptable.

2. Personal development. One of the most remarkable goals. After all, not every hobby has such a powerful developmental potential as learning foreign languages. During immersion in the culture and linguistic tradition of other people, we are expanding our ideas about the world, enriching the active or passive vocabulary, enhanced speed stimulate mental activity, trains the memory and imagination.

3. As i have already said - during the immersion in the culture and linguistic tradition of other people,we are expanding our ideas about the world. It helps to be a part of globalization, not be closed against external influences. After all, we are society.

4. And the last point, which was the impetus for the continuation of my studies. it's the atmosphere. That which appeared originally. And that which i have created myself. Every man in his own, it's personal.

Fidel Castro

Fidel Castro, the commander in chief of Cuba revolution and an icon for those that dream of a communist regime, died at age 90 on November 25th 2016. Every death is a sadness, but did Fidel bring any benefits to Cuban and the world during his lifetime? or in bold question,

WAS FIDEL CASTRO A MONSTER OR A HERO?

Western media portrayed him as unpopular leader, a ruthless murderer and a cruel dictator, but black people in Africa or Afro-America don't see him as a monstrous that many westerns think he was. Cuba, like the United States has a slave history, but Afro-Cubans live longer, have better education and have penetrated the cuban middle class. In Africa, Castro's support for anti apartheid efforts in south Africa, Namibia and his support for Angola's independence movement made him a darling of the masses.

Like other communists regime around the world, Fidel achieved power through force of military. He came to power leading an impressive revolution, through great guerilla tactics, against repressive totalitarian military dicatator, Fulgencio Batista who was controlled by American interests, both legitimate and mafia related. Batista was a murderous, vicious thug. With US help, he maintained an extremely repressive dictatorship in which all his political enemies were imprisoned or murdered.

Throughout the 50's and into 80's, the US backed some of notorious dictators the world has ever seen, in the name of stopping communism. Castro then overthrew the pro-US Cuban government and instituted a new government, on that he controlled as a dictator. His time in power was also destructive, with strong persecutions of political opponents, killed thousands of people, and led more than 1 million people to flee their island.

In Castro regime, Cuba, while a poor country, enjoys high standards of medical care. However, doctors are poorly paid. His foreign policy was based on war, with his legionaries providing support to all communists around the globe, with doctors and teachers helping the country to develop.

Dictator aren't always bad, -look Julius Caesar for example-, Roman people wanted Caesar to be their dictator. On the other hand, just as Caesar, Castro had made many enemies in the process and people wanted him to be killed.

I am trying to be objective. Ideally there are always two sides to an issue. Some people think Castro a hero, but some others think he is a traitor.

For all those reasons and more, both Castro and his legacy are complex, and to depict him as an angel or a monster, he was neither. He was deeply flawed man who believed in his ideology and made Cuba free of everyone but itself.
