Hey everybody! Well, it's that birthday time of the year for me & I feel like opening my first gift. So here it is & I'm overjoyed to have onlookers to share it with it. Why stop at 18 hours of Samba when the true carnival spirit would surely be more like 19 or 20. Right? Those of us who live in regions where that darn sun just won't seem to come out, then this installment of the series will be for some like the VERY SUN ITSELF. I drop these volumes because this is truly my tempo & yes, I live my life in a carnival line...HEY! Happy birthday to me! I hope you enjoy my gift?
P.S. If you happen to be listening to this in public transit, please let out a big smile to the world. It's always ever so welcomed! Peace onto the soul of humanity & I not only mean it, but I kind it too. Quero Alegria (I Want Joy)
Thank you Greg & Moos & Zeca & all of my buddies online who added to the proceedings herein. We rock.
One last thing. About that Giovana. When you're mining, we don't leave nuggets behind when we find the MOTHERLOAD.
So if Giovana was on my baseball team, she would certainly be MOST VALUABLE PLAYER! Geraldo Filme & those BADASS MOFOs Candeia & Nadinho Da Ilha too.
