Video – Desespero by Artefacto


I first saw Artefacto at Altavoz.  I was impressed by the group, overall.  They are a Medellin band lead by Felipe Carmona, 30 (yes, he’s 30…it has been a topic of discussion and jokes ever since I found out.)  Felipe has been very kind to me with offering insights into the Colombian music scene, and I wanted to share this video for him.

I love this video because you can see the Metro running in the background.  I have been using this song to help me learn Spanish.  Here are the lyrics:


Fue una noche fría y cruel

Cuando me hiciste perder

En tu risa que sabe a miel

Me deleito y luego se fue

Dime porque haces llover

Siempre que te quiero ver

Dame de ti dame de ti

En tus ojos me perdí

A donde vas

Cuando yo pienso en ti

Donde estas cuando muero por ti.

I love relaxing and enjoying the view of life. Whether the view is from the top of a BASE object, or from my balcony in Envigado, Colombia. I love life when it's up, and I'm trying harder to love life when it's down as well. My biggest loves in life are (in order!) Family, BASE, Music, Boys that play music, and Alcohol. I get along with everyone that doesn't take me too seriously, and with people that are ok with the fact that you should disregard almost anything I say when I'm drunk!
