Cine este Simon Tofield?

si ce face el. Este cineva care n-a vazut inca seria Simon's Cat? Poate cineva care are caine? Oricum, merita sa le vedeti pe toate. Ca si la filme, primele sunt mai misto iar cele care urmeaza mai slabute dar cum nu sunt numerotate (Simon's Cat 1, Simon's Cat 2, etc) sau nu au titluri intuitiv sugestive (Return of the Simon's Cat) trebuie sa le vedeti pe toate. sic ;-)

De ce avem nevoie de povesti?


I was at a Kurt Vonnegut talk in New York a few years ago. Talking about writing, life, and everything. He explained why people have such a need for drama in their life.

He said, “People have been hearing fantastic stories since time began. The problem is, they think life is supposed to be like the stories. Let's look at a few examples.

Jurnal de iarna


Vazand zapada de afara mi-am adus aminte de un text fain pe care l-am citit acu' ceva vreme si l-am gasit pe web... l-am recitit cu aceiasi placere :-)



Aug. 12 - Moved to our new home in Canada. I am so excited. It's so beautiful here. The mountains are so majestic. Can't hardly wait to see them with snow covering them.

Oct. 14 - Canada. It is the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves have turned all colors and shades of red and orange. Went for a ride through the beautiful countryside and saw some deer. They are so graceful. Certainly they are the most wonderful animals on earth. This must be paradise. I love it here.

Nov. 11 - Remembrance Day. Deer season starts soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill such a gorgeous creature. Hope it snows soon. I love it here.

Dec. 2 - It snowed last night. Woke up to find everything blanketed with white. It looks like a postcard. We went outside and cleaned the snow off the steps and shovelled the driveway. We had a snowball fight (I won). When the snow plow came by, we had to shovel the driveway again. What a beautiful place. I love Canada.

Dec. 12 - More snow last night. The snow plow did his trick again to the driveway. I love it here.

Dec. 19 - More snow last night. Couldn't get out of the driveway to get to work. It's beautiful here but I'm exhausted from shovelling. Fucking snow plow.

Dec. 22 - More of that white shit fell last night. I've got blisters on my hands and a sore back from shovelling. I think the snow plow hides around the corner until I'm done shovelling the driveway. Asshole.

Dec. 25 - Merry Fucking Christmas! More frigging snow. If I ever get my hands on the son-of-a-bitch who drives the snow plow, I swear I'll kill the bastard. Don't know why they don't use more salt on the roads to melt the fucking ice.

Dec. 27 - More white shit last night. Been inside for three days now except for shovelling out the driveway after that snow plow goes through every time. Can't go anywhere, the car's stuck in a mountain of white shit and it's so frigging cold. The weatherman says to expect another 10 inches of the shit again tonight. Do you know how many shovels full of snow 10 inches is?

Dec. 28 - That fucking weatherman was wrong. We got 34 inches of the shit this time. At this rate it won't melt before summer. The snow plow got stuck up in the road and that bastard came to my door and asked to borrow my shovel. After I told him that I had already broken six shovels shovelling out all the shit he had pushed into my driveway, I damn near broke my last one over his fucking head.

Jan. 4 - Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food and on my way back a damned deer ran in front of the car. Did about $3,000 damage to the car. Those fucking beasts should be killed. The bastards are everywhere. Wish the hunters had exterminated them all last November.

May 3 - Took the car to the garage in town. Would you believe the thing is rusted out from all that fucking salt they put all over the roads.

May 10 - Moved to Florida. I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would ever want to live in such a God forsaken place as Canada!

New Norah Jones - The Fall

Un mic interviu cu Nora Jones despre cel mai nou album al ei, lansat in noiembrie 2009. Criticii spun ca este vorba de o schimbare spectaculoasa de la jazz -pop spre un rock alternativ prin care se reinventeaza si incearca noi teritorii. Poate cel mai bun album al ei de pana acum. Un succes, dupa parerea majoritatii criticilor.

Norah Jones, este una din vocile feminine importante ale jazz-ului din zilele noastre, castigatoare a mai multor premii Grammy .

Tipuri de trecere

Pentru cei care au omis sa citeasca, din uitare, nestiinta sau din intamplare, gasiti aici textul lui Andrei Plesu din Dilema Veche de saptamana trecuta. via Turambar, thanks!

Preview:

"Cum ne trecem şi ne petrecem viaţa? O bună întrebare pentru mahmureala obştească de după sărbători. Eşti obosit, nu prea sprinţar la minte, dezabuzat. Te vizitează, palid, gîndul deşertăciunii (şi balastul indigestiei), cu tot alaiul lor de platitudini solemne. Ce sens au lucrurile? Cum trăim? La ce bun? Ca să mă simt cît de cît activ şi inteligent, încropesc, în grabă („în grabă“ e mult spus) un inventar: cîte tipuri de trecere prin viaţă există?"

Recomandare

Poza: Outdoor Fireplace, Norvegia - Haugen Zohas Architects

Cred ca daca mai pierd o data textul pe care il scriu - trec pe wordpress ;-)

Ideea era ca va recomand site-ul de mai sus, e util atat specialistilor cat si publicului larg. Se ocupa de design contemporan in arhitectura, mobilier si decoratiuni interioare, iluminare, etc.
L-am pus si in lista cu Resurse de arhitectura, urbanism si design, de pe coloana dreapta - unde mai gasiti multe lucruri interesante!
