Cool!; Our boys are working really hard! :D
I'm very proudly as an argentinean guy to see all those nice films there! ...Among others, you can see there a wonderful movie from Campanella, who is a really great Director from our country (I could recomend strongly one of his previous movies: "SON OF THE BRIDE")

Good luck to all of them in their endeavors.

Indeed! :lol: But hey!; Don't worry, I guess they are all educated persons, with very good manners! :D

Sure!; I hope a good amount of applausses, at least for the four best movies of the lot (they are all good productions, but I know that at least four of them are really superb, contrasting clearly against the rest of argentinean producers).

Take a trip to see them; worth the efforts, Scott! ;)

Trip to see them? Surely you jest.

I rarely get time to take a trip to the store anymore, it seems. I never know how late I'll work until it's already late and get only small amounts of time off anymore.

One of these days, though...

Ginobilli is doing great with the San Antonio Spurs :D

What a difference, instead of 'real art', spaniard directors have finished a film featuring Paris Hilton as mighty star ! :shock:

Never mind it, Angel! :shock: ...But anyway Spain has a good bunch of directors, including Almodovar! ;)

By the way; yes, I think Manuel Ginobilli is actually doing a great job with his basketball! ;)

Oh!; Scott: Just a joke!; I have never enough time here too! :(

No way!; Our dictators are really bussy in Switzerland managing HUGES bank accounts with all the thousand million dollars that they have stolen from Argentine!

Sadly we can't ship them to U.S.A. as gift, because they have abandoned our country with their bags full of GOLD!

And I say "Sadly", because at least our ex-dictators could give a nice target to G.W. Bush, where he could maybe discharge a portion of all his rage and fury feels, making at the same time some justice! ;)

But as I said; those crappy old mens are walking the streets of Switzerland, spending all the money of our tons of cereals, preciouss minerals, and argentinean meats in swiss "souvenirs" for the sake of their hookers! :evil:

On ho, no, no! I remain here as "CEO" of GeneratriX! ...A not so big company, with not so big money, but instead with big fun! :D

BTW: If I could desire to destabilize the monster, I would just send a bunch of argentinean economy ministers! ...But nah!; We're just kindly sending artists to U.S.A.! ;) ...Our better boys, I could say with justice; to show to the rest of the world what an argentinean guy can do when believes in magic, and catchs a few $ from our government as sponsorship! ;)

Yup, I thought you are actually bussy, since seems dissapeared of my InBox since quite much weeks! ...But I've not tried to ask about the *G* site, because I've guessed that you could be bloated of work! ;)

BTW: Are you in agreement if I get the GeneratriX website files from your site, using wget, to plant thoses in my domain? :roll: ...Later you could make the mods as needed, using my log/pass...

mainframe.ai wrote:P.S.: This is a weird humor thingy right?


Indeed! :D ...But all the argentinean ex-dictators are a bunch of crappy assholes; so, why not kick them a little! ;) If only swiss bankers could think the same, maybe we could get here again all our stolen millions! :roll:

Anyway, I guess that today I have a weird humor sense too! :lol:

Cheers!
