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.
Sometimes those damn curve balls drive you crazy, you feel there are no answers to anything, hopelessness, fear, so I asked the question ( I’m all about asking the question as it works. It’s been bothering me a lot, about what to do…. Here is the answer
This photo was taken in a taxi on the way to work this morning, not being a morning person I watched the bus zoom past me… ooops… oh well. I’ve gone past that a million times and never seen it – funny how things pop up when you need them the most. Love… Jeez I wasn’t expecting that; as being in judgement well it was so much safer – blame, anxiety, worry, hey isn’t that much more fun!

I’ve done a 2011 post as a lot of people are checking this one out! Here’s the 2011 one 🙂
I’ll keep updating this for a few weeks after Gustavo Cerati’s birthday if they are related to that. All general updates from his family and health status are in my other post Cerati ~ Strength and Love To You xxx
This post is also for updates for events related to Gus, I’ll update it with events that I hear about, feel free to tell me/post updates
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
Where are You?
PAC (Peace, Acceptance and Courageousness)
A G F L A P
I love the pac man way of looking at this… CAP (Courageousness, Acceptance and Peace) the other way is PAC, as that is where you start from.. (when you are hootless) as you start in peace and we all want to be back there.
You can add it to your profile as just Cerati or do what I’ve done as my FB picture is quite long I’m sharing my pic with Gustavo 😀
Nice idea if you have Facebook, it’s called a twibbon a Get well Cerati pic, a show of solidarity for Cerati
On May 15, 2010, Cerati suffered a stroke due to a decompensation after his performance in Caracas, Venezuela. Three days later, according to the Venezuelan media, Cerati underwent surgery to relieve pressure on his brain due to the ischemic stroke he suffered. …On June 27, 2010 the family’s second statement was released, which affirmed that Cerati is receiving good medical care and asked fans to disregard any malicious rumours related to his health. Get Well soon Gustavo!
