Gustavo Cerati – August 11th 1959 to September 4th 2014
I’m going to start this post with what got me into Cerati in the first place. This image above. I saw the video (Te llevo para que me lleves) many years ago and I just loved his daft sense of humour and of course his voice. Even in his last videos, he’s still having a joke and being silly. This is how I’m going to remember him.
Well, I should have had something prepared for this post as I think we all knew in our hearts things weren’t going to get much better.
Though part of me never actually even contemplated that I’d be here writing about his passing. It’s weird as to the timing as I changed my profile pic on twitter from the Cerati one (below) to my own face for the first time in 4 years only last week.
I’ve neglected posting about Gus over the last few months and that will now be addressed
I’ve been so distracted by many other things
Today is international Women’s Day and I’ve posted this everywhere as it’s just so lovely
“Nunca creí en el machismo. Mi mundo está rodeado de mujeres. Todos vivimos gracias a una mujer. Su luz y su vida nos trajo acá, ¿Por qué debería minimizarlas entonces?…Al contrario, son más especiales que nosotros”. (Gustavo Cerati – Diario La Razón 1988)
Feliz día a esas amigas, hermanas, madres, abuelas! Feliz día mujeres! 🙂
Regalo para Gustavo
Alt Latino – De Aquel El Amor: A Birthday Prayer For Gustavo Cerati in English & Spanish
Ahhh to be alive, he is to be sure, though it’s been a long journey since May 2010 for all the fans here and around the globe
I wish I had fab news to tell, all I know is he is getting better, very slowly. Some things just take a long time.
I’m glad he is having another birthday, sometimes the rumours and scaremongering weren’t on but that’s the media for you
There’s lots of activity around the world and in the next few days pertaining to birthday events, I’ve listed some here
On twitter check out the hashtags #fuerzacerati #CeratiCumple52 and my good friend @FuerzaCerati

This is an interesting time for me as there are two distinct energies at work over the next few days
One is first on 31st October (Old Hallows’ Eve or known more commonly as Hallowe’en here in the UK ) which is a festival which has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain Samhain has been celebrated in Britain for centuries and has its origin in Pagan Celtic traditions. It was the time of year when the veils between this world and the Otherworld were believed to be at their thinnest: when the spirits of the dead could most readily mingle with the living once again. Later, when the festival was adopted by Christians, they celebrated it as All Hallows’ Eve, followed by All Saints Day, though it still retained elements of remembering and honouring the dead. This time is for me is to remember both my Mother and Grandmother

Happy Birthday Gus/Feliz Cumpleaños Gus
For me, his birthday is rather special…. as a kid I’ve always loved birthdays.
I’m much more of a birthday person than Christmas
We all are born and I feel it’s a lovely thing to do to celebrate it, it’s only once a year. I enjoy the whole thing, some people like little intimate celebrations some like lots of people, some like a special gift. Continue reading
