On the run #168: A Home Away from Home


Que mixtape maravilhosa essa A Home Away from Home, selecionada pelo jornalista e DJ Allen Thayer para o sensacional blog norte-americano Aquarium Drunkard. O subtítulo da seleta, Brazilian Covers of International Pop & Rock Hits, entrega seu intuito: pinçar clássicos do pop internacional que foram regravados por artistas brasileiros. Allen não se restringe a uma época específica e mistura as versões de Caetano, Elis Regina, Rita Lee, Bossa Rio, Bola Sete e Edu Lobo pra músicas dos Beatles, passando por várias versões de Sérgio Mendes, Gal cantando Dylan, Gil revisitando Blind Faith, Nara Leão cantando Cat Stevens, Seu Jorge cantando David Bowie e pérolas como Erlon Chaves visitando Quincy Jones, Agnaldo Timóteo cantando Procol Harum, Carmindo Trio tocando Elton John, Manito tocando Blood Sweat & Tears e muito mais. No blog, ele comenta, em inglês, a escolha de cada uma das músicas. E como ele anuncia que é o volume 1, fico à espera do próximo. Dicaça da Ju, valeu <3

A era da gostosa

Seguindo nesse nas profundezas do groove, vale citar que o blog Soul Spectrum está inaugurando uma nova seção dedicada especialmente à música brasileira com o sugestivo nome de Gostosa. Eles explicam – antes de inaugurar a seção com uma pérola do Chicago Transit Authority regravada pela Astrud Gilberto. E vale linkar a explicação para Gostosa que eles indicam no blog, tirada do A Year Here da Gina:

It means “delicious.”

For a woman, it means sturdy thighs, nice wide hips, and shopping in the “curvy” section in a store. It means ordering more than just a salad and water for dinner, it means rejoicing in molho branco, sorvetes, e frango e carne e vinho tinto. It means to love life and to have it show on her body, the ripeness and fullness of pleasure apparent in the shape of her arms and belly and cheeks and thighs. It means to have a hearty laugh that resonates in the bosom. To be gostosa means to be fleshy and sexy, to have soft skin and a warm smile. To be gostosa means to be delicious, to have on your hips a little something extra to hold onto. When a woman is gostosa she wants for nothing.

Here there is no tiny skinniness, no skeletons walking around on the street looking fine. Here there is lovely plump, round, dangerously sexy flesh on the street–good thighs, good hips, perfectly proportioned with the rest of the body.

To be “linda,” to be “bonita,”–those are ways to say “beautiful.” And those are good ways, too. Lots of girls are pretty, muito bonita, ay que linda. But to be gostosa, that is a title not for everyone. In the States we worship bones and angles, shrinking into ourselves until we are just eyeballs and hair, colored and cropped just so. Up North we are tight and fine and tense and small. And trying to be smaller.

But not here. Here in Brazil, it is nice to slip into my jeans and feel them hug my legs and to know that whatever I was unhappy with up there in the North is alright here. Whatever made me wrinkle my nose about myself or frown with displeasure or dream about “getting fixed” is alright here. Is beautiful. Is actually delicious.

Nice. Let the era da gostosa begin, portanto.

Tom Jobim no Baile Funk

Ops, ele fez de novo! Desta vez João Brasil subiu com o papa da bossa nova em direção aos morros, onde fez o giro dos bailes funks e botou Tom Jobim pra rebolar. O disco todo você baixa aqui, mas a minha favorita é essa:

João Brasil – “Garota do Chefe
