3 Who the hell is this guy?

Text by Javi Camino

 

Who the hell is this guy? He looks like an imitator of that Batman’s enemy addicted to puzzles... The thing is he actually rings a bell... Isn’t he that Labañou junkie that stole the 25 pesetas I had in my pocket to catch the bus showing his knife? He had really gone cold turkey, he shouted like a wild boar: “Your money or your life!”. Quite a character. Some neighbours used to say that before getting into drugs he was an actor in a classic 90s gore film, but I think they were taking him for my friend Natalio, who, apart from being an actor, is a renowned scientist. Such an extravagant man that he actually seems to be from a Z-series movie. I don’t know, maybe I’m flipping out too much. Maybe he is a dance band singer or a party and open-air dance entertainer, who knows... Maybe he doesn’t even belong to the show business. He might be the responsible father of a large family, you figure it out... An old cosmonaut? I have no idea. Luckily, his identity will continue to be an enigma for many years to come.

¿Este tipo quen cona é? Semella un émulo daquel inimigo de Batman adicto ás adiviñas... O caso é non deixa de soarme... ¿Non será aquel ionqui de Labañou que cando era cativo mangóume a punta de navalla os 5 pesos que levaba no peto para colle-lo bus? Menudo mono tiña enriba, berraba coma un porco bravo: "¡La pasta o la vida!". Todo un personaxe. Algúns veciños dicían que antes de acabar metido na droga fora actor nunha mítica peli gore dos 90, pero eu creo que o confundían co meu colega Natalio, que ademáis de actor é un recoñecido científico. Un home tan estrafalario que, efectivamente, parece sacado dunha peli de serie Z. Non sei, quizais estou flipando demasiado. O mellor é cantante de orquestra ou un animador de festas e verbenas, vai ti saber... Quizais nin sequera se dedica o espectáculo. Pode que sexa un responsable pai de familia numerosa ou sabe deus... ¿Un antigo cosmonauta? Non teño nin idea. Por sorte, a súa identidade seguirá sendo durante moitos anos un Enigma.
