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.
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.

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..."

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

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.

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
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

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...

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.

"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

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

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.
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!
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".

"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."
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
