i am gray. and sometimes other colors

September 17, 2014 § Leave a comment

Grey is warm and sort of white
it is silent and soft

some say it has no, you know,

personality/individuality/color-ality

but it doesn’t bother
gray is silent

you can dive in it and it wouldn’t mind
it listens – instead of talking
it doesn’t catch your eye, unless you want to see it

it is like the rain of a lazy autumn
it will rain away your sorrow and serve you coffee in a small café

“Ceci n’est pas une pipe”. Really?

BIMB_SHIRT_B1This is not a pipe” wrote the artist-philosopher Rene Magritte some 90 years ago. This Sterling Bartlett T-shirt has another opinion. Just found it on Hyperallergic or buy.

A musical documentary I can’t wait to see!

Director Stefan Schwietert talks about his new film “Balkan Melodie” (Interview in German). “Balkan melodie” tells the story of the Swiss folk-music collector Marcel Celliers who traveled in Bulgaria and Romania during the communism and made the folk music of these countries popular in the West. What the people in the West (and nowadays also on the Balkans) didn’t now is the role that the communist state played in creating a legend around the folk-songs and used them as a tool for its purposes.

A musical documentary I definitely can’t wait to see!

Rock Paper Scissors

“Rock beats Scissors, Scissors beats Paper, Paper beats Rock

Two computers playing rock-paper-scissors. Each has its own random algorithm running, choosing one of the three possible items. Connected by an ethernet cable, each computer plays its hand — the winning pc gets a point.”
