Acompanhava a procissão de Nossa Senhora dos Navegantes em meio a uma multidão alegre, quase em êxtase, que serpenteava pelos becos assimétricos junto ao rio, em direção ao cais, onde os aguardavam lanchas, rebocadores, bateiras, ioles e batelões todos com bandeirolas coloridas.           E a procissão vem como o mar de maio: azul, azul, azul. O povo exibindo suas roupas nas várias tonalidades de azul. O hino se sobrepondo à pregação repisada e enfadonha do monsenhor Antonio que vinha à frente do cortejo, ladeado por dezenas de sorridentes anjinhos de asinhas de algodão e de penas de galinha, que se empurravam uns aos outros, fazendo micagens e gracejos, quebrando a seriedade da cerimônia e contrastando com a figura grave do pequeno e encurvado santo padre, que fazia de conta não ver as presepadas.  Mais atrás, o coroinha, menino de uns doze anos, sisudo, alto, magro, braços longos e os grandes olhos negros voltados para o céu, agitava o turíbulo com vigor liberando o incenso que parecia enlevar a multidão.                  Apolônio Valadão, circunspecto e impecável numa calça de linho branca e camisa também branca de manga comprida carregava com seus companheiros, como fazia todos os anos, o andor com a imagem de Nossa Senhora dos Navegantes.

            O andor, réplica de uma bateira rica nos detalhes e recoberta por cetim azul marinho e branco, era circundado por pequenas rosas brancas e vermelhas. Por cima do convés, num sorriso complacente para a multidão, a imagem da Virgem em seu manto azul e dourado, recostada no mastro, de onde saíam cordões com bandeirolas coloridas.                  Os veleiros deslizando na preamar, se exibindo como cisnes. Gritos da bateira: “Cuidado!…vai bater!”. Foguetões. O povo se espremendo no cais da prefeitura. Cais velho de madeira apodrecida.  “Não vai agüentar!”, grita preocupado o marujo da capitania. O rebocador acelera formando um sulco profundo na maré e deixando um rastro de lama e ciscos que redemoinham na superfície. A fumaça escura, quase preta, ganha o céu. Os batelões e os ioles com a boca quase na linha d’água, carregadinhos de fiéis quase soçobram nas ondas provocadas pelo rebocador.              O povo embarca sofregamente e os que não conseguem, disputam agora um lugar na margem do rio para acompanharem a evolução das embarcações. Todos querem ver a santa e o monsenhor. Logo mais, o rebocador Santana todo enfeitado com bandeirolas azuis, descerá o rio até o farol do Alagamar com o monsenhor Antonio aninhado na proa levando no colo a imagem da virgem e cercado por centenas de fiéis, bem mais do que a embarcação poderia carregar. Mais foguetões. Ao largo, quase na margem oposta as embarcações navegam apinhadas de gente colorida. A lancha Presidente Dutra avança perigosamente balançando num aderna, não aderna. O risco é iminente. Em meio às autoridades postadas no pequeno palanque improvisado junto ao cais, o capitão dos portos demonstra preocupação e despacha a ordem para as embarcações com excesso de passageiros retornarem ao porto. Ninguém obedece. Tudo é festa. “Estamos sob a proteção da santa e ela é forte”. – responde aos gritos o mestre de um bote carregado de azuis.  A multidão extasiada se acerca agora das Rocas. O pequeno cais de madeira já bastante desgastado pelo uso curva-se sob o peso dos devotos de Nossa Senhora. “Não vai agüentar…” comenta baixinho o pescador do grande batelão vermelho, também apinhado de fiéis, e sem demora passa a zingar a toda fugindo da margem.  Alheio a tudo, varejando na margem rasa e lodosa, aproxima-se um batelão de cor indefinida, velho, fazendo água, que tenta fundear. Traz os petrechos de pesca: redes, linhas, arpão e o cesto com poucos peixes. Do cais lhe gritam algum insulto. O homem magro, sem camisa, suspende a vara, responde ao insulto e muda o rumo da embarcação. Não há como ancorar naquele cais.  Excerto [p. 9/11] do romance Ninguém para a Coréia de Claudio Guerra, 2008, Scortecci Editora, São Paulo.

  5. For a long time, we’ve criticised Beats Audio headphones for the quality of their build and materials, with low-grade finishes, brittle plastics, too-thin cables, etc. However, most of those things have been put right in the Executive headphones. The widespread use of aluminium and a good-quality plastic ensures decent build quality. Assembly is without fault too.

    Beats has made progress with the Executive headphones, but not quite enough. It wouldn’t take much more effort to make the firm’s headphones a whole lot more interesting.

    The design has also got a bit more discreet. Beats has done away with gaudy colours for the Executive, opting for a two-tone aluminium and anthracite look and a matte finish. All in all, these headphones are in tune with recent sleek smartphone design.
