We need to talk about cryptocurrencies. Here are my ten greatest articles.

Cheers to the site I’m ghostwriting for. They gave me permission to share with you the best of my work.

These articles are SEO-heavy-keyword-filled-monsters.

The texts don’t have my usual flair, because that’s not what the client needed. 

These are lean and mean traffic generating machines.

And they’re full of useful info if you’re looking to get into the cryptocurrency craze of 2021.

After the jump, we’ll discuss: Binance, Coinbase, Kraken, Bittrex, and Coinmama. Which of these cryptocurrency exchanges is better for you? We’ll talk about Ripple and the XRP, about Lumen and its Stellar, and of course about the king and queen of the ball: Bitcoin and Ethereum. As a bonus we’ll feature the Verge coin, is it the new hot investment or an example of what not to do?

Get all of the answers and a lot more, after the jump:

Three examples of content curation. Dissecting and summarizing great ideas:

Jack Parsons in The Claypool Lennon Delirium's “Blood and Rockets: Movement I, Saga of Jack Parsons – Movement II, Too the Moon”

This space has been a little quiet lately, but hey… I got hired to ghostwrite a big-big project and I’ve been working on getting my writing published in other platforms. The latest accomplishment in that regard are these little pieces for the “microdoses” section in Metapsychosis, arguably the most complex and perplexing site around.

For the first installment I wrote about this work-of-art of a videoclip, and among other things said:

Announcing the release of “La Tormenta”, my first novel

Look: I recently became immortal.

My first novel is out, the Spanish Edition of “La Tormenta” is already available on Amazon.  Of course I’m getting it translated into English, but it’s going to be a while so you might as well get this one and help a brother out. It’s worth the price of admission, everything you need to know about this world is in there, guaranteed. And for every copy sold a random white horse will get a horn in the forehead, making the planet a more magical place in this time of need. With “La Tormenta” everybody wins.

The novel is about time, magick, hip hop, discordianism, high weirdness, psychedelics, philosophy, Caracas, Mérida, 2012, physics, conspiracy, impotence, weed, rockets, the meaning of life, a life of meaning, nature, The Occult, frustration, insanity, music, catharsis, apotheosis and much, much more. “La Tormenta”, out now.

About my participation in “Together” by Andy Gell

TogetherX

Look, there’s no way around it: I’m a published author now.

I contributed five or six paragraphs to Together” by Andy Gell, a The KLF inspired collaborative book already available.

It’s part of the huge amount of art The 400 are producing following this event, one which you should be familiarized with to understand the novel or even what I’m talking about here. It’s also book two on the “WTF Trilogy” by Mr. Gell.

Since I haven’t read “Together” yet, this post consists of a few quotes from the first glowing review it received:  Continue reading

Articles in Spanish for respected sites, Sir

So yeah, I didn’t follow through with the whole getting-this-blog-into-shape thing. The world has been incredibly distracting, but I have another excuse: I’ve been writing in Spanish. I stopped publishing around when I started with “La Tormenta” a million years ago, and now that the alchemical process is about to give results, I’m getting a head start in reclaiming my old journalistic career back.

It’s been harder than previously anticipated, but I got a semi regular column in Venezuela’s premiere electronic music site Dj Profile, in which I have written about Massive Attack and Justice so far:

1.- http://www.djprofile.tv/mentes-trabajando-independientemente-regreso-massive-attack/ (–> English version)

2.- http://www.djprofile.tv/just-tease-sobre-woman-el-tercero-de-justice/

And I wrote about my favorite female emcees for Spain’s sexiest literary site, Culturetas:

http://culturetas.es/emcees-gringas-apoyo-lauryn-hill/

Last but not least, I keep my music tumblelog at the edge of everything with constant updates:

That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

Honesty is…

This blog exists because I need work.
Paying jobs as a writer.
You should hire me and compensate me in Dollars or Bitcoin.

A little about me: I spent the last seven years of my life sculpting my first novel, “La Tormenta”, while my country, Venezuela, fell to pieces around me. The writing process was challenging enough, the hardest endeavour I’ve endured by far, and I also had to deal with devaluation over devaluation, working for a shrinking salary, shortages of everything that’s sacred, all kind of strikes and protests and roadblocks set on fire. Also, people just yapping on and on about all that and the latest sporting event, instead of listening to me whine about my work.

I also had very noisy neighbors.

So, not to brag, but I’m basically indestructible and kind of a Superhero.
In related news, in the downtime I also became a sorcerer.

And now, you can have me as part of your team. Hire me.

Two or three paragraphs about “A Moon Shaped Pool”

A Moon Shaped Pool

At fist I thought this was the most rock Radiohead had put in al album in over a decade. I was wrong. I’m not an “In Rainbows” or “The King of Limbs” fan, but I love the rest of their output. This new one, I don’t feel like listening to it too much. There’s no deniying the high quality of the music inside “A Moon Shaped Pool“, but Thom Yorke is still in crying mode and Jonny Greenwood still won’t play guitar. In spite of that, they archieved something special. It just doesn’t appeal to me specifically.

I’m still in awe about Burn the Witch“, and the video is probably my favorite of the year. I also enjoy “Decks Dark” and “Identikit” tremendously. I don’t like Daydreaming at all, but I wouldn’t move the dial if it came up on the radio. “True Love Waits” grew on me, even though I’m not a ballad man. The rest is alright, and it has sublime moments, but I cant’t help but miss the old days, when they were a rock band. The album is still #2 among the critics and #1 among the public according to Album of the Year, so I guess Radiohead will survive the judgement of my two or three paragraphs.
