Ugress


Ugress is one of several projects from norwegian producer, composer and remixer Gisle Martens Meyer from Bergen. The music is built upon a massive bed of samples, loops and sounds, aswell as recorded with live musicians - everything from complete symphonic orchestras to bandoneon to vocalists.

The Music

Ugress dives into a groovy, spooky and cinematic landscape of weird samples, loops and sounds. Strong rythms carries soundscapes and melodies forth. The sources of sampling include easy listening records of the 60ies, unknown and well known classic funktracks of the 70ies, computer games, television commercials and the oldest aswell as latest sci-fi b-movie. The compelling groove of a breakbeat (or two, or three) is, of course, always present.

Guano apes, sandra si eu

de mult de tot, Bogdan (ex-AB4) a zis ca seman cu Sandra.Sa fii fost din cauza faptului ca amandoua suntem uratele?!?!

Une poupee qui fait non..


Sigur Ros - Starlatur

Cum am ales libertatea. Mic tratat pentru o viaţă fără griji


De citit. Candva. Scrisa de Tom Hodgkinson .


„Nu am nimic-nimic! Şi asta-mi place la nebunie.“


Viaţa e absurdă.

Dumnezeu înseamnă iubire.

Suntem liberi cu toţii.

Şi atunci:


Încetaţi cu văicăreala • Alungaţi plictiseala • Relaxaţi-vă • Cântaţi la ukulele • Respingeţi cariera • Distrugeţi cămătăria • Puneţi capăt luptei de clasă • Fiţi boemi • Aruncaţi-vă ceasurile de mână • Opriţi concurenţa • Trăiţi fără ipoteci, fiţi rătăcitori fericiţi • Evadaţi din temniţa dorinţelor consumeriste • Uitaţi de guvern • Ignoraţi reforma • Azvârliţi pastilele • Daţi pace copiilor • Uitaţi de pensie • Fugiţi de bădărănie • Îmbrăţişaţi frumuseţea • Iubiţi calul • Iubiţi-vă vecinul • Fiţi creativi • Eliberaţi-vă spiritul • Săpaţi pământul • Sunteţi liberi!

The first kiss, Alex Karev - Grey's anatomy

For a kiss to be really good, you want it to mean something. You want it to be with someone you can't get out of your head, so that when your lips finally touch you feel it everywhere. A kiss so hot and so deep you never want to come up for air. You can't cheat your first kiss. Trust me, you don't want to. Cause when you find that right person for a first kiss, it's everything" -ALEX KAREV

What I like about tv series "Grey's anatomy"

Grey's anatomy was Dona's recommendation:) And it is a good show. I love it 'cause I laugh a lot, I love the characters, their stories, the way they love each other..and I love it..I don't know which one is my favorite, I like Meredith, but I can't say I hate "the ex-wife". I like the team. The way the say "seriously?!", the way they support each other. Every episode is a new story, just like in our life! Funny isn't it?

Meredith: "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines... that are way too dangerous to cross. So what do you do then?"
"You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales, that fantasy of what your life would be, white dress, prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You would lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close you could taste them, but eventually you grow up, one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is its hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely cause almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they will open their eyes and it will come true."
"Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way. Because without it, I don't know; maybe we just wouldn't feel real. What's that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop."
"Intimacy is a four syllable word for, "Here's my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger, and enjoy." It's both desired, and feared. Difficult to live with, and impossible to live without. Intimacy also comes attached to the three R's... relatives, romance, and roommates. There are some things you can't escape. And other things you just don't want to know."
"I've heard that it's possible to grow up - I've just never met anyone who's actually done it. Without parents to defy, we break the rules we make for ourselves. We throw tantrums when things don't go our way, we whisper secrets with our best friends in the dark, we look for comfort where we can find it, and we hope - against all logic, against all experience. Like children, we never give up hope..."

PALME D'OR: "4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS, AND 2 DAYS" BY CRISTIAN MUNGIU


Jane Fonda awarded the Palme d'Or of this 60th Cannes Festival to Cristian Mungiu for 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days.
During the closing Ceremony, Cristian Mungui declared: “It seems like a fairy tale. One year ago we didn’t have any idea about this project and some six months ago, we didn’t have any money to make it and finally, we were just hoping to be in Cannes in any kind of competition. So I just want to thank very much the Jury and I want to thank very much the people from the Festival for allowing us into Competition to start with, because it really made all the difference for us. The kind of attention that we got here all along the Festival, this story that we believe in so much, is going to reach lots of people now. I also hope that this award that I’m getting now is going to be of good use for small filmmakers in small countries everywhere, because it looks like you don’t necessarily need a big budget and a lot of stars to have your story heard.”
At the press conference for the winners, Cristian Mungiu talked about what this means to Romanian filmmakers: “I honestly think this is just about the best event that happened to a wave of Romanian cinema that manifested itself in the last years already. I’m very happy to thank my colleagues, Romanian filmmakers. Without their successes in the past years, I couldn’t have been here. (…) This really gives us a sort of confidence. It’s the ultimate recognition for a filmmaker. And it gives us the strength to go on with other good stories." Photo Copyright AFP

Ursula 1000 la Club Live Music

Cora Gramos zice ca ea nu vrea la "Tuci-tuci". Adica la muzica house unde nu simti decat bass in coaste si in creier. La Ursula nu a fost numai tuci-tuci. Dreamrec s-a ocupat de super proiectii, lumea nu foarte multa, dar placuta. Muzica buna, Ursula foarte bun. Si buna Tequila! Am dansat si ne-am dezinfectat gurile amortite cu licoarea minunata, apoi am luat-o la pas catre un taxi. La Arhitectura se sparsese balul bobocilor sau absolventilor. Tema balului : bal mascat. Atasat fotografii sugestive:)) Colegul ParSenie era piratat de la cizma pana la palarie. Seara de sambata inceputa cu salata si vin rosh la Caru' cu bere s-a inchieat minunat intr-un pat mare, acasa, cu geamul deschis si cu gandurile ratacite in abur de alcool. Viata este minunata la 20 de ani.

Gogol Bordello - proaspete informatii de dupa..

In deschidere Nighloosers. Dragut. Apoi Shukar. "Romanii imputiti" au dansat si s-au bucurat de felul in care Dj Vasile i-a facut pe "neste" domni vedete cu pretentii..
Apoi Gogol Bordello. Foarte frumos cantat si frumos public.Lumea pe care o stiu din Fire-ul de pe vremea tineretii, din Vama tineretii, din locuri diverse. Am revazut oameni pe care nu ii cunosc, dar ii stiu totusi. Parca timpul s-a oprit in loc.
Despre cantare: un spectacol de divertisment interesat, muzica cum spusei ok, lume dansanda, un pic de goliciune barbateasca datorata caldurii si niste plete in vant pe la nostralgici, fete dragute - din alea pitice, care si daca au 30 de ani arata tot ca la 14, cu blugisori si tenesei:)) Am vazut si cateva "pisi", cu poshetica, cu palarie/jobenel, par intins cu placa, maieuas de la Zara - colectia noua si pantalonei "schinii" nu blugi! Balerini, conversi, sandale, multa bere. Pipiul! Pipiul a fost un cosmar. Rusine toi-toi..sa trimita numai 4 ecologice la atata puhoi de lume?! Noroc cu amplasarea organului pishicios masculin..stateau si se prelingeau baietii "la gard" de iti "ierea" mai mare dragul sa le vezi spatele. In rest frumos. Lume buna, cum zisei. Dupa 5 ani in care Dna. D m-a carat cu ea la lansari si mi-a aratat sau sugerat subtil care este diferenta intre jurnalisti si fripturisti am mai tinut minte numai cateva nume si cateva fetze. Alea placute:) Ma dor talpile de la sarit pe loc, ma dor palmele de la batut din dansele. Berea buna si rece, am servit cu moderatie caci tiu la permisul de conducere. Dar! Am dansat mai mult si mi-a placut mai mult la Depeche Mode, de unde intelegem ca aia este cumva generatia mea. Acesti domni care au prestat au fost ok si ar fi fost si mai ok daca nu faceau comentarii legate de afirmatia lui Basescu, caci doar eram la antren si divertisment, nu la inca o revulutie. Ah! Si am uitat sa mentionez! Mie mi-a placut basistul, ala mai maronel. Cred ca am ceva cu basistii.
Avem si poza si video. Nokia N90 este o super scula de device sau gadget sau ce o fi el, caci face mult mai multe decat imi imaginam. Sa ne traisca..iasca..iasca..Bahtalo!o!o!o!
Maine reviu cu gandul de dupa somn. Care va fi altul, mai bun. Poate maine o sa va sugerez sa purtati "purple". Tuturor.
Noapte buna computer, noapte buna blog.

La maree haute

Lhasa de Sela - La marée haute

La route chante
Quand je m’en vais
Je fais trois pas…
La route se tait

La route est noire
À perte de vue
Je fais trois pas…
La route n’est plus

Sur la marée haute
Je suis montée
La tête est pleine
Mais le cœur n’a
Pas assez

Mains de dentelle
Figure de bois
Le corps en brique
Les yeux qui piquent

Mains de dentelle
Figure de bois
Je fais trois pas…
Et tu es là

Sur la marée haute
Je suis montée
La tête est pleine
Mais le cœur n’a

Irresistible - vazut/aprobat


Sophie Hartley is convinced that someone is trying to steal her children, her husband: her life. Forced to prove her sanity, Sophie fights back and makes a discovery more shocking than her worst fear.
She is a successful illustrator. A deadline looms and Sophie is terrified of failure and the pressure to reveal a secret from her past.
To make matters worse, things aren't going well with her husband Craig (SAM NEILL). When Sophie becomes convinced that she's being stalked by one of Craig's co-workers - a beautiful, highly competent assistant, Mara Toufiey (EMILY BLUNT) - no one believes her.
Sophie's life begins to fall apart. She feels she's being watched, followed, copied. Things go missing in the house - her daughters' toys, family photographs, even her favourite dress...
Sophie tries to fend off paranoia, but it is clear to her that Mara is trying to steal her husband, her daughters, her life.
In the cat and mouse game of obsession that ensues, Sophie crosses the boundaries of acceptable behaviour. Mara takes out a court order against her. Now Sophie is forced to become a stalker.
Sophie spirals further out of control and as a result of her own dangerous actions, loses both Craig and custody of her children. With the loss of all she holds dear, Sophie begins to fight back. But before she regains her family, she discovers something more frightening than anything she has ever encountered. A secret that can paradoxically destroy or heal - a secret that changes everything...

Grbavica - the land of my dreams


Single mother Esma lives with her 12-year-old daughter Sara in Sarajevo’s Grbavica neighborhood, where life is still being reconstructed after the 1990s Yugoslav wars.Unable to make ends meet with the meager government aid she receives, Esma takes a job as a cocktail waitress in a nightclub. Working all night is difficult for Esma physically and it also forces her to reluctantly spend less time with her daughter. Still haunted by violent events in her past, Esma attends group therapy sessions at the local Women’s Center. In addition to relying on her best friend Sabina, Esma also finds a kindred spirit in Pelda, a compassionate male co-worker from the nightclub.Feisty tomboy Sara begins to put soccer aside as she develops a close friendship with classmate Samir. The two sensitive young teenagers feel a strong bond because both lost their fathers in the war. But Samir is surprised to hear Sara doesn’t know the details of her father’s noble death.Sara’s father becomes an issue when she requires the certificate proving he died a shaheed so that she can receive a discount for an upcoming school trip. Esma claims acquiring the certificate is difficult since his body has yet to be found. Meanwhile, Esma searches desperately to borrow money to pay for Sara’s trip.Confused Sara becomes violently upset when some classmates tease her for not being on the list of martyrs’ children. Realizing her mother has paid full price for the school trip, Sara aggressively demands the truth. Esma breaks down and brutally explains how the girl was conceived through rape in a POW camp. As painful as their confrontation is, it is Esma’s first real step toward overcoming her deep trauma. Despite Sara’s hurt, there is still an opening for a renewed relationship between mother and daughter.

Paris je t'aime - making off and nice stuff

Clody Bertola si o viata en rose..ca si a mea..

Asa mi-a spus Ina cand mi-a dat cartea Ludmilei Patlanjoglu. Am citit cartea si da, m-am regasit acolo. Apoi am cautat sa aflu cat mai multe despre aceasta minunata actrita..pentru ca habar nu aveam.
"Poate ca sunt oameni tineri care nici macar n-au auzit de actrita Clody Bertola, retrasa de pe scena in anii '80, dar adevarul este ca lumea scenei - lumea in general, la urma urmei - are nevoie de legende pentru a putea merge mai departe. Iar Clody Bertola este una dintre aceste legende, hranita atat din talentul cu care a fost daruita pentru scena, cat si din fascinatia cu totul speciala pe care o starnea barbatilor din viata ei. Actrita si femeie, Clody Bertola si-a traversat epoca plina de un calm imperial, construindu-si o viata si o cariera exemplara. In cartea dedicata ei (La vie en rose - Humanitas, 1997) criticul de teatru Ludmila Patlanjoglu a strans cuvintele entuziaste ale multor reprezentanti ai lumii artistice romanesti, acei norocosi care au cunoscut-o si au lucrat alaturi de ea: "Cea mai mare actrita cu care am avut fericirea sa lucrez vreodata" (Liviu Ciulei), "Fecioara exemplara, intruchipare scolaresc-exemplara - de cumintenie, spiritualitate si puritate - iat-o peste ani, scandalizand Bucurestiul burghez si mitocanesc prin libertinajul ei" (Lucian Pintilie), "Fata asta e ca o cruce pe care sa o porti pe piept" (Emil Cioran), "O regina a contrastelor" (Emil Botta), "O feminitate iesita din comun" (Victor Rebengiuc) - iata numai cateva dintre declaratiile incluse aici. Aniversarea celebrei actrite, care implineste 90 de ani pe 12 august, va fi marcata si de Televiziunea Romana, prin difuzarea, asta-seara de la ora 23.30, a unui recital Clody Bertola, realizat in 1971, in regia lui Liviu Ciulei (reluat marti, de la ora 0.10 pe TVR International), iar maine, de la ora 23.30, cu inregistrarea spectacolului Cei din urma de Maxim Gorki (in regia lui Radu Penciulescu, 1972), avand-o in rolul principal. Nu numai cei care ii sunt in preajma sau au cunoscut-o la un moment dat ar trebui sa-i trimita un gand cu acest prilej, ci si toti acei care, aflati in cautarea unui model, s-ar dovedi inspirati sa-l gaseasca in Clody Bertola."


Numele Adevarat: Bertola Clody
Data si locul nasterii: 12 August 1913, Bucuresti, Romania

Music that makes you feel good



Ma simt bine cand cunosc oameni care dau mai departe de le place lor..Ma bucur. Imi plac retelele si chestiile care conecteaza oameni cu oameni, locurile unde poti sa cauti si sa descoperi alti si alti oameni. Am gasit o persoana care are aceleasi gusturi musicale ca si mine. Compatibilitate SUPER. Are 22 de ani si e din Australia. Ei bine iata..ma potrivesc cu o fetita de 22 de ani:)) Saptamana asta desigur. Pentru ca saptamana viitoare ma voi potrivi cu altcineva.

Am cautat chestii si am gasit. Am ascultat Lali Puna pentru ca mi se pare ca suna foarte bine numele. Asa copilaresc. Lali, lala. Foarte buna muzica. Revelatia insa vine din mama Rusie.
Scsi 9:)
Thank you. Waiting for more good stuff:)

Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988)






Cu sau fara Tudor Giurgiu, un ultima vreme am vazut numai filme bune la tvr1 si 2. Noaptea tarziu= filme bune. Am vazut Basquiat. Mi-a placut.. si l-am regasit pe Warhol. Bowie face un rol excelent..Trista poveste a avut Basquiat. filmul este de vazut oricum:)
"Basquiat tells the story of the meteoric rise of youthful artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Starting out as a street artist, living in Thompkins Square Park in a cardboard box, Jean-Michel is "discovered" by Andy Warhol's art world and becomes a star. But success has a high price, and Basquiat pays with friendship, love, and eventually, his life"

Cartarescu. Al nostru.


Mie imi plac nuvelele lui Cartarescu. Si mi-a placut si De ce iubim femeile. Dar foarte tare mi-a placut Ruletistul. Si apoi Rem. Si Gemenii..si Mendebilul..tot Visul lui imi place.

Cartarescu scrie din suflet, scrie despre lumi pe care noi le stim, scrie despre oameni care locuiesc pe Stefan cel Mare, despre aventuri pe care le-am trait si noi in picimea noastra. Cartarescu scrie si bucura cu cele scrise. Nu am citit nici Orbitor, nici Enciclopedia Zmeilor..Dar ce am citit m-a bucurat. Am cumparat Baroane! si am dat-o cadou ca sa se bucure alt om, unul drag mie.

Stiu ca nu am cumparat carti ale lui pentru ca nu mi-a placut coperta si nu mi-a placut un font..mi s-au parut imposibil de citit in formatul acela.

Nu conteaza. As vrea sa citesc Jurnalul.

Si sa ii multumesc ca este cum este. Fantastic.

Doctorul Aumadoare



Kornei Ciukovski (adaptare dupa Hugh Lofting) cu ilustratii de V. Cijikov
Editura Malis, Moscova, 1978
Tragempinge
"Oamenii nu au vaztu niciodata un tragempinge, fiindca aceste fapturi se tem de oameni. de cum zaresc vreun om, o si tulesc in tufisuri. alte anumale pot fi prinse cand inchid ochii si adorm. va apropiati de ele pe la spate si le apucati de coada. dar de tragempinge nu te poti apropia pe la spate, fiindca la spate tragempinge are un cap la fel ca cel din fatza. da, are doua capete:unul in fatza si altul in spate. cand i se face somn, intai doarme un cap, apoi celalalt. niciodata nu doarme pe de-a-ntregul. cand un cap doarme, celalalt priveste imprejur, sa nu se furiseze vreun vanator. iata de ce vanatorii n-au izbutit sa prinda vreun tragempinge, iata de ce acest animal nu exista in nici un circ si in nici o gradina zoologica.
Maimutzele se hotarara sa prinda un tragempinge pentru doctorul Aumadoare. Dadura fuga in adancul padurii si gasira locul unde se adapostea tragempinge. el le zari si o rupse la fuga, dar maimutzele il prinsera de coarne si-i graira asa:
- Draga Tragempinge! Nu vrei sa pleci cu doctorul Aumadoare departe-departe si sa locuiesti in casa lui cu celelalte animale? Acolo o sa te simti bine si n-o sa duci lipsa de nimic.
Tragempinge clatina din amandoua capetele si grai din amandoua gurile deodata:
- Nu!
- Doctorul e un om bun, zisera maimutzele. O sa iti dea sa mananci turta dulce facuta cu miere, iar daca te-mbolnavesti, o sa te vindece de toate bolile.
- Mi-e tot una! grai Tragempinge. Eu vreau sa raman aici.
Trei zile-n sir maimutzele se caznira sa-l induplece si, in sfarsit, Tragempinge zise:
- Aratati-mi-l si mie pe doctorul asta mult laudat. Vreau sa vad cum arata.
Maimultele in condusera pe Tragempinge la casuta unde statea Aumadoare si batura la usa.
- Intra, zise Kika.
Cici, plina de mandrie, aduce in odaie animalul cel cu doua capete.
-Ce-i asta? intraba doctorul cu uimire.
El nu mai vazuse niciodata asemenea minunatie.
-El e Tragempinge, raspunse Cici. Vrea sa faceti cunostinta. Tragempinge este animalul cel mai neobisnuit din padurile africane. Ia-l pe corabie si primeste-l sa stea in casa ta.
-Dar o sa vrea el sa mearga cu mine?
-O sa merg bucuros, zise pe neasteptate Tragempinge. Mi-am dat seama numaidecat ca esti un om bun: ai ochii atat de blanzi! Animalele te iubesc si eu stiu ca si tu iubesti animalele. Dar, te rog sa imi fagaduiesti ca, de-o sa mi se ruasca la tine, o sa ma lasi sa ma intorc acasa.
-Negresit ca o sa te las, spuse doctorul. Dar la mine o sa te simti atat de grozav, incat nu cred c-o sa mai vrei sa pleci.
- Asa e, asa e! E adevarat! striga Cici. Doctorul nostru e atat de vesel si de cutezator! In casa lui traim nestingheriti!Iar in vecini, la doi pasi de el stau Tania si Vania. Ei o sa te indrageasca tare mult, o sa vezi, o sa-ti fie cei mai buni prieteni.
-Daca-i asa, ma invoiesc!rosti Tragempinge voios, inclinandu-si in fata doctorului cand un cap, cand celalat."

Buratinno



Buratinno e un fel de adaptare a lui Pinocchio in povestea lui Alexei Tolstoi - Buratinno si cheita de aur. Am gasit cartea in biblioteca si demult am vazut si o ecranizare:) Ruseasca, minunata din 1975. Ce filme bune faceau rusii, nu mai vb de cartile de la Editura Raduga, cu copertile lor groase si lucioase. Scumpe. 35 de lei o carte nene! Mi-am cumparat toate cartile pe care mi le-am dorit cand eram mica, de la anticariat de la Metrou Universitate. Andisme zicea "sechele din copilarie fata!". Cu cateva zeci de mii de lei vechi am in biblioteca tot ce mi-am dorit si nu aveam cand eram mica, dar le aveau vecinele mele, Roscata de Andreea mai ales! Si Lili si Giani!
Hahahahaha!

Trei Grasani



O minunatie de poveste despre care voi reveni cu amanunte si cateva desene scanate cu grija din carte.

Killing me softly




O poveste despre pasiuni nebune, un thriller erotic ar zice unii. Cu sex si un pic de sado, genul de relatie pe care nu o ai acasa cu sotia, ci o ai la hotel sau in secret cu amanta. Daca nu aparea "criminala" filmul ar fi continuat cu sex si matasuri. Daca nu se casatoreau era si mai bine, pentru ca pasiunile interzise au ceva picant si bun:))

Oricum e de vazut daca va e dor de fluturii din stomac si adrenalina de pe vremea cand aveati relatii interzise sau "nepotrivite".

The Prestige


Filmul de vineri noaptea s-a dovedit o minunatie. De ceva vreme statea cuminte in laptop, in micul folder cu minuni.Este o poveste despre rivalitatea dintre doi magicieni care impart scenele Londrei si pe Scarlet Johansson. Este un film despre orgolii si magie, despre iubire si tradare, trucuri nedescoperite si masinarii care "teleporteaza". De vazut.

Ne place Hugh Jackman. Sweet!

The Rules of Attraction



The Rules of Attraction - 2002

MUST SEE ..I MUST SEE:))
Camden College. Sean Bateman (James Van Der Beek) is the younger brother of depraved Wall Street broker Patrick Bateman. He's also a drug dealer who owes a lot of money to "fellow" dealer Rupert Guest (Clifton Collins, Jr.), as well as a well-known womanizer, for he sleeps with nearly half of the female population on campus. Lauren Hynde (Shannyn Sossamon) is, technically, a virgin. She's saving herself for her shallow boyfriend, Victor Johnson (Kip Pardue), who's left the States to backpack across Europe. Her slutty roommate, Lara (Jessica Biel), has the hots for Victor as well. Paul Denton (Ian Somerhalder), who used to date Lauren, is openly bisexual and attracted to Mitchell Allen (Thomas Ian Nicholas), who's dating Candice (Clare Kramer) to prove to Paul that he's not gay. Sean loves Lauren. Paul loves Sean. And Lauren may love Sean.

This is a twisted story about sex, drugs, and college. Three disturbed students at Camden college get involved in a love triangle. Sean Bateman (brother of American Psycho's Patrick Bateman) is a womanizing drug dealer who falls in love with virginal Lauren (not to be confused with her slutty roommate Lara,) because he inspects that she is his secret admirer, who is leaving notes in his box. Although Lauren does like Sean, she is still infatuated with Victor (her shallow ex boyfriend) who is in Europe for a semester. Lauren used to date Paul before he came out of the closet, and now Paul has his eyes on Sean when he mistakes him for bisexual. Things get more complicated since all the side characters (including the mentioned Lara and Victor) are deeply disturbed as well. Everybody is only looking out for themselves, which insures that nothing good can come from this. One knows this because the end of the story is the first scene, and the rest of the movie serves to show how Lauren, Paul, and Sean wind up miserable at "The End of the World Party

Aventurile lui Habarnam si ale prietenilor sai

Ei bine iata ca mi-am luat inima in dinti. Acesta carte este un fel de Biblie a gastii Thassos. Anul trecut inainte de vacanta ma gandeam: ce as putea sa iau cu mine si sa dea picele pe spate definitiv?! Picele au 5-6 ani, sunt din alea cochete, cu papucei Barbie si cu posetele de blanita, astea cochetele ce naibii povesti vor sa auza? De la Doctorul Au-Ma-Doare pana la Talismanul de safir, am cautat si mi-am stors creierii..Nimic nu se "pupa" cu personalitatea micilor vedete. Asa ca in egoismul celor 29 de ani mi-am zis: O sa le citesc ce imi place mie! Doar nu imi citesc ele mie! Si am avut de ales intre Trei Grasani (pe care o iubesc definitiv si irevocabil!forever!) si Aventurile lui Habarnam si ale prietenilor sai.
Aceasta alegere este probabil una dintre cele mai bune pe care le-am luat in viata. In urma lecturarii povestii, s-au ales nume! Dan a devenit Piulita, Maria clar Surubel = cei doi prieteni nedespartiti, nevasta lui Dan este Mama lui Piulita, Anca este Ochi albastrii - prichinduta cu plasturele!! Nu am cuvinte sa povestesc ce am iscat. Cercetand pe net am constatat ca mai sunt si altii ca mine! Desi mama imi spune ca nu mai este nimeni..Si cativa barbati la fel au crezut:))
Cineva care iubeste acesta poveste si pe acest mic prichendel a pus povestea lui Nosov pe net: http://habarnam.org

Sa ii multumim din suflet pentru bunatatea lui.

Prichindei si prichindute din Orasul florilor, va iubim!

What about Mary Poppins!!!


Pai da! caci mai am o multime de carti vechi..Si am si Mary Poppins - si mi-a placut si filmul, insa cele doua carti sunt minunate.

Vitea Maleev la scoala si acasa

Azi noapte in timp ce ma fofilam de la invatatura despre managementul calitatii, m-am intins pe burta in pat, coborand periculor spre margine, catre biblioteca veche de la ai mei din camera - unde vietuiesc in lipsa lor:)
Si sub niste carti vechi statea pitit Vitea Maleev. O carte scrisa de N. Nosov, un rus. Super carte pentru copii. O carte cu desenache foarte frumoase si cu o mica rugaminte la final: "Daca v-au placut aveturile lui Vitea Maleev precum si desenele ce le ilustrau va rugam sa ne scrieti la Editura tineretului (..si adresa..).Va multumim"
Ce frumos, nu?
Vitea Maleev nu era un copil oarecare, ci un vasnic pionier rus, mare inventator! Vitea Maleev umbla telelu ca mine cand eram vasnic pionier(a)..Vitea Maleev e cool. Aduc sa scanam din carte sa va bucurati si voi de desenache.

Lars von Trier - Europa/Zentropa


recomandat de S.S, zis Serghi


LvT: "According to me, I was too free, as it is such a cause of anxieties …I missed the love an authority with definite parameters can bring, because that is a form of love."


Serghi a zis asa, cu patos cum numai el stie sa povesteasca: "Asta e un super film! Sa vezi ce lumini si cum e filmat! Si totul e o macheta, au filmat in platou. Ai vazut Dogville? Nu, lasa, nu-i nimic, asta e mai tare! Ia-l si o sa iti placa si vorbim dupa ce il vezi!"

Si l-am luat si asezat langa Idiotii, Breaking the Waves si alte minuni. Si l-am vazut. Si este un film bine facut, foarte bine facut. Cu o poveste despre un tip, un american - care se trezeste intr-o valtoare de evenimente ciudate.

"it is a romantic cry of impotent rage and despair"

Este de vazut.

Lars von Trier - Idiots




Idiot, idiote : adj. et n. 1) Qui est dépourvu d'intelligence, de finesse, de bon sens. Syn. stupide, bête, imbécile. 2) Atteint d'idiotie, dernier degré de l'arriération mentale.

Dancer in the dark - Bjork and Lars von Trier


I've SEEN IT ALL
I've seen it all, I have seen the trees,I've seen the willow leaves dancing in the breeze I've seen a friend killed by a friend,And lives that were over before they were spent.I've seen what I was - I know what I'll be I've seen it all - there is no more to see!
You haven't seen elephants, kings or Peru!I'm happy to say I had better to do What about China? Have you seen the Great Wall?All walls are great, if the roof doesn't fall!And the man you will marry?The home you will share?To be honest, I really don't care...You've never been to Niagara Falls?I have seen water, its water, that's all...The Eiffel Tower, the Empire State?My pulse was as high on my very first date!Your grandson's hand as he plays with your hair?To be honest, I really don't care...
I've seen it all, I've seen the dark I've seen the brightness in one little spark.I've seen what I chose and I've seen what I need,And that is enough, to want more would be greed.I've seen what I was and I know what I'll be I've seen it all - there is no more to see!You've seen it all and all you have seen You can always review on your own little screen The light and the dark, the big and the small Just keep in mind - you need no more at all You've seen what you were and know what you'll be You've seen it all - there is no more to see!

Bjork - I love


"There's no such freedom in the world," she says, "that you can pick anything you want and put it in your butt." ....
For instance," she explains, "if you feel like a train is running through your head, it is. And if you feel like putting eggs inside your bottom, you should."
..."But I ended by crying. It was so sad, these girls who'd been with the same guy for twelve years, saying, `Am I supposed to have an orgasm?'"

Michael Buble sau cum e timpul pentru o muzica buna


He’s simply to young to have so much swing!Michael Buble, the 25 year old Canadian, tackles some of music’s most enduring and loved songs on his new album "It’s Time", our 666 Breakfast CD of the week.You would have heard the fabulous big band sound of "Feeling Good" over the airwaves. Anthony Newley would be most pleased with Buble’s interpretation. Here at 666, the volume is always turned up when it comes on.Co-produced by the legendary David Foster and Humberto Gatica, "It’s Time" contains classics like "You Don’t Know Me", "Try A Little Tenderness", "Can’t Buy Me Love" and "I’ve Got You Under My Skin".

Jean Paul Frenay si "gigi" lui de muzica


In februarie 2006 am facut un spot cu un tanar regizor belgian Jean Paul. Care a venit cu un laptopel mic si alb si plin de minuni. Si ne-am facut noi doi liste cu cine ce filme sa vada, si mi-a povestit de Gaspar Noé, si eu il cunosteam de la un festival, si vai ce ne-am mai bucurat si imprietenit. Si a zis el: nu vrei sa iti dau si eu tie niste muzica? Si asa a inceput totul. Cum orele treceau hardul meu se imbogatea cu mii de piese. Trupe de care nu auzisem niciodata, etc, etc.
JP are si el o trupa - Muna, care dupa parerea mea canta bine:) Ce trupe si toate albumele lor am? Sa vedem: 2 Many Dj's, A Perfect Circle, Air, Amon Tobin, And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, At The Drive-In, Autechre, Beth Gibbons, Dead Man Ray, dEUS, DJ Krush, einstürzende neubauten, Eskobar, Fantomas, Folk Implosion, Four Tet, Front 242, General Patton vs The X Ecutioners, Ghinzu, Hollywood Porn Stars, Interpol, Ladytron, Lovage..si nu mai pot sa mai scriu caci sunt prea multi.
senchiu, senchiu mesiu JP:)

Boards of Canada





Favorite song..hm..Zoetrope+Amo Bishop Roden+Kid for Today

Lake house


Asa trebuie sa fie casa mea. Inconjurata de ape + caine + Keanu. Sau fara caine:))
Un film frumos, cam siropel, dar nu zic nimic de rau caci mi-a placut si l-am vazut..si revazut.

My captain..


Filmul Piratilor din Caraibe - primul caci urmatoarele nu am vrut sa le mai vad, este filmul unei mari prietenii si unei mari iubiri. Nu avem comentarii despre acest film pentru ca orice comentariu este de prisos - "Must see".
(Acest film a dus la semnarea unui pact, remember?)

Cartile pe care nu le terminam niciodata. Nici nu le incepem.Sau ne saturam de ele.




Exista carti de care te apuci caci iti sunt recomandate. si iti plac pret de cateva pagini. apoi "recomandacul" te intreaba si te preseaza si zice: deci?! cum ti se pare??tare nu??

si tu iti zici: futu-i, nu pot sa trec de pagina 251 si asta ma intreaba ce parere am.

Pai, deci, ca sa zic asa..sunt carti pe care nu le pot termina si pace. Nu mai intra. Am ajuns la "jumatea" lui Midnight children si s-a rupt filmul. Am lasat cartea pe un colt de etajera si acolo a ramas pana in zilele noastre, daca nu cumva, in imbecilitatea mea am deja recomandat-o si imprumutat-o cine stie cui.

Piticul mi-a placut..tot asa. Pret de jumate. Desi este o carte subtirica a existat un moment in care mi-am zis ca nu mai vreau sa stiu ce face acel pitic rau.

Hesse - nu am putut nici sa deschid jocul cu margele de sticla. Carte noua, cu miros de cerneluri si lipici. Este pusa la loc de cinste, undeva in biblioteca.

Kundera. Pai da, dupa ce a trecut trendul de a citi Kundera nici nu imi mai vine sa pun mana pe vre'o carte. Citea toata Alma Kundera si era foarte cool sa vorbesti despre cartile lui. Si mai ales era cool sa intrebi: "Cum?? Nu ai citit INCA? Puah!"

Ei bine, nu. Nu am citit. Inca.

Nu am citit Marc Levy. Nu am avut si nici nu am vrut sa dau banii pe ceva care mi s-a parut (no offence) cam siropel. Parca mi-am imaginat doamnele in metrou cu lacrima in coltul ochiului citit "Te voi revedea" sau pana ne-om revedea..sau cum ii zice.

Dar! Am citit Coelho. Deci, am fost in trend cand "ierea" trendul! Ha!
Ba chiar am tradus 99% din La Raul Piedra Am Sezut Si Am Plans. Si pana sa mai traduc eu 1% au publicat-o astia si mi-au infranat bucuria de a fi tradus eu insami o foarte frumoasa poveste de amor si despre credinta. Insa pentru mine a fost minunat. Mi-a placut Coelho ca citea Serban si mi-a dat si mie Veronika isi doreste sa moara. Apoi mi-a dat Alchimistul , apoi a adus din Anglia noutatea cu raul Piedra. Si apoi am primit 11 minute de la Andi, inainte de a pleca in Franta, ca sa am motive de lacrimat si taiat vene.
Apoi am mai citit inca ceva si nu am mai putut sa citesc caci murea trendul si omul nu se mai oprea din scris. Si scria si venea si il intervieva lumea..si gata.

Borges


"García Márquez pidó el Nobel para Borges". ClarínBuenos Aires, 17 de septiembre de 1980

"Între iubita mea şi mine se vor ridica trei sute de nopţi ca trei sute de ziduri, iar marea va fi o taină între noi. Nu vor mai fi decât amintiri. O, înserări cu care m-a învrednicit durerea, nopţi pline de speranţa de a te privi, câmpii pe care-mi deschid drum, cer înstelat pe care-l prind cu privirea şi îl pierd... Definitivă ca marmura, absenţa ta va întrista alte înserări."

Del amor y otros demonios


It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams

Nu te iubesc pentru ceea ce esti, ci pentru ceea ce sunt atunci cand sunt cu tine

Poate ca pentru lume esti doar o singura persoana, dar pentru o anumita persoana esti intreaga lume

Nobody deserves your tears, but whoever deserves them will not make you cry

What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it

Sour Time


To pretend no one can find
The fallacies of morning rose
Forbidden fruit, hidden eyes
Curtsies that I despise in me
Take a ride, take a shot now
' Cause nobody loves me
Its true
Not like you do
Covered by the blind belief
That fantasies of sinful screens
Bear the facts, assume the dye
End the vows no need to lie, enjoy
Take a ride, take a shot now
' Cause nobody loves me
Its true
Not like you do
Who am I,
what and why
' Cause all I have left
is my memories of yesterday
Oh these sour times
' Cause nobody loves me
Its true
Not like you do
After time the bitter taste
Of innocence decent or race
Scattered seeds, buried lives
Mysteries of our disguise revolve
Circumstance will decide ....
' Cause nobody loves me
Its true
Not like you do
' Cause nobody loves me
Its true
Not like you
Nobody loves.. me
Its true
Not, like, you.. do
