Letter and the musca - Pearl Jam - Nothingman =)*

Dear Karen,

If you're reading this, it means I actually worked up the courage to mail it, so good for me. You don't know me very well but if you get me started, I have a tendency to go on and on about how hard the writing is for me. But this, this is the hardest thing I've ever had to write. There's no easy way to say this so I'll just say it. I met someone. It was an accident, I wasn't looking for it, I wasn't on the make. It was a perfect storm. She said one thing, I said another. Next thing I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life in the middle of that conversation. Now there's this feeling in my gut she might be the one. She's completely nuts in a way that makes me smile, highly neurotic, a great deal of maintenance required. She is you, Karen. That's the good news. The bad is that I don't know how to be with you right now. And it scares the shit out of me. Because if I'm not with you right now, I have this feeling we'll get lost out there. It's a big, bad world full of twists and turns and people have a way of blinking and missing the moment, the moment that could have changed everything. I don't know what's going on with us, and I can't tell you why you should waste a leap of faith on the likes of me. But damn you smell good. Like home. And you make excellent coffee, that's got to count for something, right? Call me.

Unfaithfully yours, Hank Moody.

Tribute to Boom Festival day

Boom 2012 - 28th of July till 4th of August

"The Boom Festival’s mission is to provide a unique and unforgettable experience where all participants are at one with nature while resonating with the art that is present, celebrating with likeminded people from around the world, respecting the environment and promoting critical capacity, education and knowledge. Cultural practice not only puts us in touch with beauty and celebration, but also inspires new ways of finding solutions to the problems affecting humanity and the Earth since the beginning of the 21st century. The Boom adheres to the principle of ‘thinking outside the box’, reflecting novel ways of expressing ourselves by unifying the alternative and psychedelic culture of the world. It is a weeklong experience away from dominant culture in the Portuguese sunny unspoilt nuclear-free lands. Boom’s multidisciplinary, mind-expanding program is constantly evolving.
Fare Trade - The world is at the peak of consumption and we at Boom support both small producers and local products to avoid the dictatorship of world trade organisations. We avoid big brands and opt instead to promote fair trade cola, local drinks and bio-products that are consciously created.
No Logos - Boom is, and always will be, completely free of corporate sponsorship and is funded by ticket sales alone. We are a corporation-free-driven festival, a zone of cognitive liberty that has grown organically by word of mouth. The Boom team dedicates its efforts to creating a parallel universe where you are the most important part. Make Change Happen."

Boom Environmental Practices Awards - Leave no trace

– European Festival Award 2010 – Green’n’Clean Festival of the Year
– Greener Festival Award 2008 and 2010 (Outstanding Prize)

The Boom Environmental Program forms part of a vision that all Boomers have the opportunity to share within the Boom experience. It provides us with the intelligent tools that allow us to become active agents of change when we return to our countries of origin.

The toilet with the best view i've ever been in, and yes,

More from Banksy

"I was 16 years old when I first trespassed onto some railway tracks and wrote the initials of the graffiti crew (of which I was the only member) on a wall. Afterwards the most incredible thing happened–absolutely nothing. No dogs chased me, no thunderbolt from God shot down to punish me, and my mum didn’t even notice I’d been gone. That was the night I realized you could get away with it.

That was also the night I discovered that beyond the “No Entry” sign everything happens in higher definition. Adrenalin sharpens your eyesight, each little sound becomes significant, your sense of smell seems more acute, and tramps shit everywhere.

To some people breaking into property and painting it might seem a little inconsiderate, but in reality the 30 square centimetres of your brain are trespassed upon every day by teams of marketing experts. Graffiti is a perfectly proportionate response to being sold unattainable goals by a society obsessed with status and infamy. Graffiti is the sight of an unregulated free market getting the kind of art it deserves. And although some people might say it’s all a big waste of time, no one cares about their opinion if their name isn’t written in huge letters on the bridge into town."

Women Are Heroes

Working without authorization and identified only by his initials, Parisian artist JR exhibits on streets all over the world. Pasting his enormous photographs of local people onto buildings in neglected neighbourhoods, he makes art with and for its subjects. The vast scale of the work is breath-taking and the aim is always social connection, through revealing, close-up, often humorous portraits of people usually identified only by their poverty. JR’s projects have taken him on long international trips, to Cambodia, Palestine, Israel, China... He has wrapped his images onto Rio’s oldest favela and moving freight trains in Kenya. 

“Women Are Heroes, Kibera 2008”

"When you go to Providência, which is one of the most dangerous favelas in Rio, there is no NGO, no institution. Drug trafficking is huge. So, there is no reason for people to go to a place like that and create an artistic project. We were able to do this project just because the community had its own interest in its success. Because we arrived without any sponsors or political objectives, people always received us with open arms. They are happy to see another approach, and not a journalistic one - an approach where they are actors. These questions are really essential. The local people are conscious of their image. Their interest is to change the image we have of the favelas, to bring attention to them for something other than the drug traffic. And me…I want to continue my project, raise questions about the place of women in society. With the project done, I leave the country and I hope a bridge has been created between these people and the media. It is the testimonials of these people, their stories and their words, that are much more compelling than anything I can say. Each place is an unexpected meeting that continues. Sometimes I see people again when I come back to follow up an action and continue a project." JR

"Hoje é o dia."


Muscas - La la la lá

On est parti, samedi, dans une grosse voiture, Faire tous ensemble un grand pique-nique dans la nature,
En emportant des paniers, des bouteilles, des paquets,
Et la radio !

Des cornichons
De la moutarde
Du pain, du beurre
Des p'tits oignons
Des confitures
Et des œufs durs
Des cornichons

Du corned-beef
Et des biscottes
Des macarons
Un tire-bouchons
Des petits-beurre
Et de la bière
Des cornichons

On n'avait rien oublié, c'est maman qui a tout fait
Elle avait travaillé trois jours sans s'arrêter
Pour préparer les paniers, les bouteilles, les paquets
Et la radio !

Le poulet froid
La mayonnaise
Le chocolat
Les champignons
Les ouvre-boîtes
Et les tomates
Les cornichons

Mais quand on est arrivé, on a trouvé la pluie
C'qu'on avait oublié, c'était les parapluies
On a ramené les paniers, les bouteilles, les paquets
Et la radio !

On est rentré
Manger à la maison
Le fromage et les boîtes
Les confitures et les cornichons
La moutarde et le beurre
La mayonnaise et les cornichons
Le poulet, les biscottes
Les œufs durs et puis les cornichons

Fits three whole lives
Fits one dressing table
Fits us both
Fits even my love

Tiras - The one that made me fall for

White noise as a sleeping aid

"Your ears normally pick up sounds which the brain translates to something understandable. In your sleep, if you can hear something that your brain can comprehend, for instance the sound of a conversation, then your brain automatically functions- thus keeping you awake. The idea of a white noise is to produce a type of noise that is unintelligible in order to cover for the rest of the sounds that you might hear." Here.
