The Winner stands alone

In the new book from Coelho seems like I'm reading another author, and is because is so different to another books from him in terms of style.

The history is based on Cannes film festival where Coelho shows life style and glamour on models looking for a chance, directors and rich people.

I love Coelho's books because always I can get new quotes as lessons on my life, like this:

1. Love only lives on freedom.
2. Because the only reason to change from angel to evil suddenly is that you have feelings like revenge and resentment in your heart.
3. Religion leaders normally using afraid and guilty instead of love that in theory is more important.
4. Some experments results shows that if two persons have been to much time together can realize the other presence in a same ambient even if one can't see or know about other presence.

In addition the reason why I like this book is because of the character Igor .  On one hand he is portrayed as a man of principle who becomes a serial killer, in hope to winning his wife back. On the other hand he is shown as Mr. Devil through the eyes of his ex-wife. Also I knew thanks to this book the history behind on Gary Ridgway, Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson all serial killers from USA.

Concluding the book is good because is a new theme explored by Coelho.

The Return

Two brothers had an unexpected visit from their father, who just they remember by
photographs. He is really their father ?. Why he come back after many years ?.

The brothers will find responses in a isolate island. Traveling with a man who put their life in chaos. But more than a beautiful history you can delight views in north of Russia Enjoy it.



Now I'm working in a open source project with Omar (@Zageyiff). The idea is to increase my knowledge as Developer with new challenges, besides with this effort I'll be able to contribute to the huge open source community.

In order to understand what JAudioScrobbler means, first we need to take a look at . builds a detailed profile of each user's musical taste by recording details of the songs the user listens to, either from some media player, or  many portable music devices.

JAudioScrobbler send all your mp4 &  mp3 tracks that exist in a specific directory as tracks listened  to site. In addition search which tracks have Artist & Track name but that missing album in the metadata, JAudioScrobbler send a request to MusicBrainz  in order to get that specific album and track number.

The main goal for JAudioScrobbler is provide all metadata (album, tracknumer, lyrics, cover art, etc) that we can get from some API available on  the principal music vendors databases & engine sites.

Now we're able to download JAudioScrobbler from google code from here:  Download

There are only two features that I'm thinking about but is working progress and in a sort time we can get another cool functionality or even more open Source projects.

BTW this is my lastfm profile: josdem
