    Default Esta es la Well CXXII: Diego - Digging my way up like The 33!

    Hey! I've been given the torch by the cool, well-spoken Chris of Arabia.
    I've been a bit away from the forum in the last months, but I'll always be here one way or another.
    Also, I'm almost 6000 posts old! Nearly 10 years here. Wow.

    What kind of beer are you holding in your avi? I'm assuming it is a beer?

    It is a Die M Red Ale (www.cervezadiem.cl) and that picture is like 7 years old!
    Loved strong beers back then and I still do.

    Did you know, for several years, we had an employee at Seymour Duncan who is originally from Santiago?

    No clue! Who's he/she? I'm jealous, I'd love to work at Seymour Duncan but I think my competences are somewhere else.
    Who knows, eh?

    Tell me the thing you love most and the thing you hate the most about these South American countries.
    I always want to hear the perspective of the ones who live down there.

    Brasil

    Peru

    Argentina
    Brazil:
    Good? Great food, amazing place to visit, girls have fun with no shame about it.
    Bad? The heat, a bit dangerous at times, and man are Brazilians loud or what? If a brazilian's a mile around you, you'll know.

    Venezuela: Never been there.

    Colombia: Never been there.

    Peru:
    Good? Incredible food, inexpensive traveling/lodging.
    Bad? Anti-Chilean attitude.

    Bolivia: Never been there.

    Argentina:
    Good? Good meat, everywhere. You'll have a hard time finding better beef anywhere in South America.
    Argentinian women are stunning. Argentinians have a great sense of their culture, they're proud of it and it shows.
    Jaw-dropping landscapes in the south. Great attitude towards tourists if far-away from Buenos Aires.
    Bad? Chauvinism. Plenty of it.

    Tell us where you would like to travel in the world, and what you'd like to see

    You are given 48 hours to visit any period of history; where would that be, who would you like to meet, and what would you like to do whilst there?

    Intervals of time and space. I certainly don't look as aged as that guitar.
    Why does it have more frets than my age?

    tomar (cerveza) afecta el tono?

    I like all sorts of beers! Too bad every single pub in Chile is now shoving their homemade stuff up your face, and most of it tastes like Lidocaine.
    I'll take beers from well-experienced breweries, and not from guys who read 10 minutes ago how to make beer at home in a blog and want to charge me for it like it's a Belgian Ale, thanks a lot.

    Beers don't affect tone, but they affect flatulence quite a bit and that's even better, isn't it?

    What are your thoughts on classical music? Do you have a favorite piece or composer?

    Do you have a favorite pair of socks?

    Seymour and MJ are coming over for dinner. What do you cook?

    Hey Diego!

    What's your all-time favorite movie, and what do you love about it?

    What album have you played more than any other album, regardless of whether it's your favorite? Why do you think it's your most played album?

    How important is raising children to you?

    Who's (whose?) comedy do you relate to or appreciate the most?

    What is the band / artist that you've loved forever but nobody knows about, and you want to shout from the rooftops, "LISTEN TO THIS!"?

    Compared to other places where you've eaten it, how is the chili in Chile?
    I am so close to retirement that I could play in a band full time. All I have to do is improve my playing, learn some songs, and find some other musicians more talented than me who will do exactly as they're told. .

    I listen to classical a lot less than I should. Don't we all say that?
    My favorites are Chopin, Vivaldi and Beethoven. Mozart I've never dug much into and Bach just isn't for me.
    Favorite pair of socks? All of those who are blue, black or white and with no patterns for Christ's sake. Can't stand goofy patterns in socks.

    What would I cook for MJ and Seymour? Definitely a Chilean food, like some nice Empanadas, or maybe Porotos con riendas (stewn beans with spaghetti, pork sausage and spices).
    Not exactly hypocaloric, but awesome.

    Hey I6!!
    Not much of a movie guy, but my favorite movie is a toss-up between Pulp Fiction and Revolver. I'll spare you the Pulp Fiction love and go to Revolver which is not that well known; it's a extremely complex movie which got awful reviews everywhere; to me, it just makes you think and help you build a stronger version of yourself.
    It sounds strange, but that's how I take it.

    My most played album is Metallica's Master of Puppets. Just because I love it and discovered it when I was 12 so it has a timing advantage. But I rarely listen to it anymore.
    Nowadays my favorite album are Dogman by King's X, Scenes by Marty Friedman, and the almightly Toxicity by System of a Down.

    I really like the idea of becoming a dad someday. However, it's a bit hard to rationalize about it because Chile is quite a ****ed-up country for being young nowadays.
    Salaries are poor, job opportunities are slim, blah blah. But it's definitely important for me, it's not a secondary thing at all.

    I like some latin comediants, but I relate the most with political American comedy. I love how brutally stingy it can be and you don't find that anywhere else IMO. Love George Carlin, Bill Maher, Bill Hicks and the great, late Patrice O'Neal who wasn't exactly political but was just as awesome.

    King's X!!! Nobody grooves and crushes like them at the same time. All their albums and particularly Dogman should be mandatory listen for anyone into Hard Rock, simple as that.

    Mild. Chile isn't exactly a pepper-crazy country like México or others. Our foods in fact are very mildly spiced and very tourist-friendly as a consequence.
