everything you can think of is true
I can’t afford to buy the ink,
The fucking paper’s fucking expensive,
And the fucking taxi’s a fucking thief,
The street is fucking full,
The fucking air is fucking dull,
My fucking hand is fucking dry,
By the time I’ve sweat the piasters to buy,
The fucking artist’s materials.
“My goal in the long run and from now on is preparing the ground to convert my trail in a popular lawsuit against banks and everything which it represents, therefore by extending it to the current capitalist system. A trial that could be both a new tool for reunion and strengthening all those who are to build an alternative society to the present.
If this idea goes ahead and I get to return someday to carry it out, will be if a majority of you also believe it, if you are willing to win that trail, if you think it will have a beneficial effect for our fight. I hope to move it forward someday, since it’s going to be the way to come back and never hesitate, that I want to come back to be again amongst you all, but I don’t think it’s only me to decide. I would like to ask you to discuss this in the meetings of the gropus and meeting places and thus would be then, that we could decide.”

The tragedy of life is not death
But what dies inside us
While we live
But all the characters in The Slap are touchy, and that seems to be part of Tsiolkas’s point – in the Australia of the 21st century, multiculturalism has won. People of all ages, all ethnic groups and all political persuasions are interconnected and intermarried, and, at least some of the time, they just can’t handle it. The Slap, which was first published in Australia in 2008 and has since won the Commonwealth prize, is a “way we live now” novel, and it is riveting from beginning to end.

Should the object be to change the face of the earth? Haven’t I done it already just by being here??? And the same goes of course for every human being in this planet. We are all important, we have our special talents, characteristics, attributes. If we take the population of the earth in 2014, there is a minority who has the possibility to write fiction. And among these people, not everyone will want to get published and not everyone will succeed.
very interesting blog about real learning, here some extracts that grabbed my attention:
– So how do you unlock the creative genius inside the 50% or so of the population that has an Introversion preference? In a way, you do the opposite of the “Creativity Zone” approach. Continue reading “a shout out – real learning”

Semiotics is “a scientific attitude, a critical way of looking at the objects of other sciences.”
Umberto Eco – 1974
المسئول هو من يعلم
Daniel Chandler – Semiotics for Beginners
Whilst semiotics is often encountered in the form of textual analysis, it also involves philosophical theorising on the role of signs in the construction of reality. Semiotics involves studying representations and the processes involved in representational practices, and to semioticians, ‘reality’ always involves representation.
والآن ، ماذا تفيد البادئة “مابعد” إلي الحداثة، و فيم تتميز عنها؟
تفيد ان ما بعد الحداثة مشروط بما تم في الحداثة، كما هو الحال فيما بعد الحرب العالمية، أو ما بعد الحرب الباردة. فليست إمتداداً أو تكملة لما قبلها، بل تجاوز، بالمعني الفلسفي، أي هي نفي و احتواء معاً. أو بعبارة أخري، تجاوز إخفاقالمرحلة السابقة. ولذا لابد لبيان ما بعد الحداثة أن يصرح بما يتجاوزه، مما يدعونا إلى مقارنتها بالحداثة التي تخطتها.

There is now an important critical literature on the representations of women in the media and western art. John Berger’s book Ways of Seeing provides an accessible introduction, and Laura Mulvey’s famous essay on the male gaze launched an important literature in the field of cinema. And there’s a fine review essay by Paul Messaris available on the web. But Erving Goffman’s somewhat lesser-known study called Gender Advertisements is useful here because he focused on, among other things, poses common to magazine advertisements. “Commercial photographs,” Goffman points out, “involve carefully performed poses presented in the style of being ‘only natural’.” (84) Continue reading “♥ – A jewel, the essence”
You know, I was on this plane once. And I’m sitting there and uh…the captain gets on, he does his whole, you know, we’ll be cruisin’ at 35,000 feet. But then he puts the mic down n forgets to turn it off.
And so he turns to the co-pilot n he’s like, “you know, all I could use right now is a fuckin’ blow job and a cup of coffee.” So the stewardess fuckin’ goes bombin’ up from the back of the plane to tell him that the microphone’s still on. N this guy in the back of the plane is like, “Hey, hon, don’t forget the coffee!”
You ever been on a plane?
No, but it’s a fuckin’ joke. It works better if I tell it in
the first person.
And BAM! He clocks it. High fly ball down the left field
line! Thirty-five thousand people, on their feet, yellin’
at the ball, but that’s not because of Fisk. He’s wavin’ at
the ball like a madman.
Yeah, I’ve seen…
He’s going, “Get over! Get over! Get OVER!” And then
it HITS the foul pole. OH, he goes apeshit, and 35,000
fans, you know, they charge the field, you know? >
Yeah, and he’s fuckin’ bowlin’ police out of the way!
Goin’ “God! Get out of the way! Get ’em away!”

Permissive open carry states
A state has passed full preemption of all firearms laws. They do not prohibit open carry for all non-prohibited citizens and do not require a permit or license to open carry. Open carry is lawful on foot and in a motor vehicle. It must be noted that while open carry may be legal in such jurisdictions per se, persons openly carrying firearms may be detained and cited by law enforcement officials for disorderly conduct or disturbing the peace in certain locations and circumstances where openly carrying could cause public alarm.
check out the chart for the states which apply these rules:

too much of a competetion for Dove?!!
(A guy in a bar, actor Steven Prince, talking with a bartender, Ken Webster.)
It was in the middle of the desert, in the middle of nowhere, but on the way to Vegas, so, you know, every once in a while a car would pull in, get gas. It was the last gas stop before Vegas. Office had the chair, had a cash register, and that was all the room there was in that office. I was asleep, and I heard a noise. You know, just like in my mind. So I got up, and I walked out, and I stood on the curb of where the gas station ends, you know, the driveway there. I’m rubbing the sand out of my eyes, trying to see what’s going on, and way down at the very end of the gas station they had tire racks. Chains around them, you know. And I see there’s an Econoline van down there. And there’s a guy with his T-shirt off, and he’s packing his Econoline van with all these tires. He’s got the last two tires in his hands, pushes them into the thing, and then I, of course, I go, “Hey, you!” This guy turns around, he’s got no shirt on, he’s sweating, he’s built like a brick shithouse, pulls out a knife, it’s 12 inches long, and then starts running at me as fast as he can, going AAAAAAAHHHHH.

they sell it with a promise that it will kill 99.9%* of the germs; only for the safety of your family
it is a lie and a false statement,
it is false because you can never kill 99.9% of the germs and if it happened it will be for fraction of a second.
and it is a lie and a misleading sentence because it is not healthy for you and your family to get rid of “the germs”, this is what immunity is, living with your germs!

i know there are a few people who look up to me,
mistaken as they might be -this remains to be revealed in time-,

you smell like a city by the sea

I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad when there is so much beauty in the world.
Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst…
And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid life…
