Here I lay just like always




Passenger
[Deftones Featuring Maynard James Keenan - Tool / A Perfect Circle]

[Chino:] Here I lay
[Maynard:] Still and breathless
[Chino:] Just like always
[Maynard:] Still I want some more
[Chino:] Mirrors sideways
[Maynard:] Who cares what's behind
[Chino:] Just like always
[Maynard:] Still your passenger

[Maynard:] Chrome buttons, buckles and leather surfaces
These and other lucky witnesses

[Chino:] Now to calm me
[Maynard:] this time won't you please

[Chino:] Drive faster!

[Maynard:] Roll the window down this cool night air is curious
Let the whole world look in, who cares who sees anything
I'm your passenger, I'm your passenger

[Chino:] Drop these down then put them on me
Nice cool seats there to cushion your knees
Now to calm me
[Maynard:] Take me around again
[Chino:] Don't pull over
[Maynard:] This time won't you please
[Chino:] Drive faster!

[Maynard:] Roll the window down this cool night air is curious
Let the whole world look in, who cares who sees, what tonight
Roll these misty windows down to catch my breath and then
Go and go and don't just drive me home and back again

[Chino:] Here I lay just like always,
[Maynard:] Don't let me go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go
Take me to the edge

Ὅμηρος - Sing, goddess...


Homer
( Ὅμηρος Homēros)

Four essential qualities of Homer: 
  1. he is eminently rapid; 
  2. he is eminently plain and direct both in the evolution of his thought and in the expression of it, that is, both in his syntax and in his words; 
  3. he is eminently plain and direct in the substance of his thought, that is, in his matter and ideas; 
  4. he is eminently noble.                                                              (Matthew Arnold)






Sing, goddess, the anger of Peleus’ son Achilleus
and its devastation, which put pains thousandfold upon the Achaians,
hurled in their multitudes to the house of Hades strong souls
of heroes, but gave their bodies to be the delicate feasting
of dogs, of all birds, and the will of Zeus was accomplished
since that time when first there stood in division of conflict
Atreus’ son the lord of men and brilliant Achilleus. . . .
(The first verses of The Iliad)




Muse make the man thy theme, for shrewdness famed 
And genius versatile, who far and wide 
A Wand’rer, after Ilium overthrown, 
Discover’d various cities, and the mind 
And manners learn’d of men, in lands remote. 
He num’rous woes on Ocean toss’d, endured, 
Anxious to save himself, and to conduct 
His followers to their home; yet all his care 
Preserved them not; they perish’d self-destroy’d 
By their own fault; infatuate! who devoured 
The oxen of the all-o’erseeing Sun, 
And, punish’d for that crime, return’d no more.
(The first verses of The Odyssey)

I'm reading The Iliad and The Odyssey again. How many times did I read them? I don't know! A lot I guess... 


Favorite part? The forging of Achilles' shield (Book 18, lines 468-608). The way Homer describes the process and the shield itself, it is simply beautiful. It's one of the first literary description of visual work of art.

Starting from the shield's center and moving outward, circlelayer by circle layer, the shield is laid out as follows:
1. The Earth, sky and sea, the sun, the moon and the constellations 
2. "Two beautiful cities full of people": in one a wedding and a lawcase are taking place; the other city is besieged by onefeuding army and the shield shows an ambush and a battle
3. A field being ploughed for the third time 
4. A king's estate where the harvest is being reaped 
5. A vineyard with grape pickers 
6. A "herd of straight-horned cattle"; the lead bull has beenattacked by a pair of savage lions which the herdsmen and theirdogs are trying to beat off 
7. A picture of a sheep farm
8. A dancing-floor where young men and women are dancing
9. The great stream of Ocean



Interpretation of the Shield of Achilles design described in the Iliad, by Angelo Monticelli 

(1778-1837)


I'am really surprised when someone tells me that he/she didn't read these two books. Why?! How?! For me, reading them is a part of general education...general culture. You just simply HAVE TO read them. So...if you didn't...GO AND READ THEM!


Gnjev mi, boginjo pevaj, Ahileja, Peleju sina,
zlosrećni, štono Ahejce u hiljade uvali jada,
duše pak mnogih junaka posla Aidu,
a njih učini same da budu pljačka za psine 
i još gozba za ptice - i tako se Divova volja
vršila - , otkad se ono u svađi razišli bili
Atrejev sin, junacima vođa, i divni Ahilej.
(translation by Miloš N. Ćurić)

Do you dream of murder?


We are oft to blame in this. 'Tis too much proved that with devotion's visage and pious action we do sugar o'er the devil himself.
(Hamlet 3.1.46-49)



Evil is a point of view. God kills indiscriminitely, and so shall we, for no creatures under God are as we are, none so like Him... as ourselves. 
 ( by LESTAT - Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles)




"The Spirits have all but fled judgement
I rot, alone, insane,
Where the forest whispers puce laments for me
From amidst the pine and wreathed wolfsbane
Beyond these walls, wherein condemned
To the gloom of an austere tomb
I pace with feral madness sent
Through the pale beams of a guiltless moon
Who, bereft of necrologies, thus
Commands creation over the earth
Whilst I resign my lips to death
A slow cold kiss that chides rebirth
Though one last wish is bequathed by fate
My beauty shalt wilt, unseen
Save for twin black eyes that shalt come to take
My soul to peace or Hell for company"

"Countess Dracula" (1970)


He doesn't know the sentence that has been passed on him?" "No," said the officer again, pausing a moment as if to let the explorer elaborate his question, and then said: "there would be no point in telling him. He'll learn it on his body.
(In the Penal Colony - Franz Kafka) 




"That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die."

(The Call of Cthulhu - H. P. Lovecraft)
