Peachy



My boss...there's never a dull moment with him. NEVER a dull moment!
I work on Saturday. There goes my weekend, cause I work on Sunday too (as usual). I'm just sightly annoyed... (I don' think I'm getting paid for this overtime)




PEACHY!
My life is peachy!

SweetTooth



Oh, boy... I am! I'm one of those people who find it hard to resist sweets. Cakes, cookies, chocolate... I LOVE them all! 
There is one type (brand) of cookies that turns me into a crazed cookie monster...


DOMAĆICA by Kraš

Making my life happy since... 1980's.
For me, it's the best! Chocolate cookie with tradition 
(they started making them in 1957).
 It's very dangerous to put the whole box of these in front of me....
CRAZED COOKIE MONSTER MODE ON! :D



Not a lot of people knows that BodyBag's dad is making one of the best cakes I've ever tried. The recipe is top secret! 
Ladies and gentlemen, 
I present to you, 
one and only...
THE MONSTER CAKE

(applause!)

Thank you, thank you! You've been a wonderful audience! :D
Now... I'm off to finish that box of Domaćica...

We are eternal, all this pain is an illusion...





This body. 
This body holding me. 
Be my reminder here that I am not alone...


This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.
Embrace this moment. 
Remember. 
We are eternal.
All this pain is an illusion.

Little Red Riding Hood

“She said to her, “Grandmother, what great arms you have!”
“That’s to embrace you the better, my child.”
“Grandmother, what great legs you have!”
“That’s to run the better, my child.”
“Grandmother, what great ears you have!”
“That’s to hear the better, my child.”
“Grandmother, what great teeth you have!”
“That’s for to eat you.”
And upon saying these words, this naughty Wolf threw himself upon Little Red Riding Hood, and ate her.”
(Charles Perrault - Little Red Riding Hood)



Another one of my favorite fairy tales. Beautiful girl and a Big Bad Wolf...Creepy? Scary? Morbid? Kinky? Overtly moralized? Depends of which version of the story you've read. The story went through a lot of changes and adaptations, but again the main versions of the story are those recorded by Charles Perrault and the Grimm brothers. 



The origins of the Little Red Riding Hood story can be traced to oral versions from various European countries and more than likely preceding the 17th century, of which several exist, some significantly different from the currently-known, Grimms-inspired version. It was told by French peasants in the 14th century as well as in Italy, where a number of versions exist, including La finta nonna (The False Grandmother). It has also been called as "The Story of Grandmother". It is also possible that this early tale has roots in very similar Oriental tales (e.g. "Grandaunt Tiger").
These early variations of the tale differ from the currently known version in several ways. The antagonist is not always a wolf, but sometimes an ogre or a ‘bzou’ (werewolf), making these tales relevant to the werewolf-trials (similar to witch trials) of the time (e.g. the trial of Peter Stumpp). The wolf usually leaves the grandmother’s blood and meat for the girl to eat, who then unwittingly cannibalises her own grandmother. Furthermore, the wolf was also known to ask her to remove her clothing and toss it into the fire. In some versions, the wolf eats the girl after she gets into bed with him, and the story ends there. In others, she sees through his disguise and tries to escape, complaining to her "grandmother" that she needs to defecate and would not wish to do so in the bed. The wolf reluctantly lets her go, tied to a piece of string so she does not get away. However, the girl slips the string over something else and runs off.
In these stories she escapes with no help from any male or older female figure, instead using her own cunning. Sometimes, though more rarely, the red hood is even non-existent.

It came to my attention that a movie is being made. 
Release date: 11 March 2011. 


Gary Oldman is The Hunter. 
Director: Catherine Hardwicke...(I'm not very happy about that). 



I do hope that this movie will be worth watching!

Full Moon Madness

It's that time again...
THE WOLF MOON


 Full Moon Madness

[1st Portuguese verse:]
We are wolf memories
that tear the skin apart
Wolves that once were men
and shall be them again

[2nd Portuguese verse:]
We are wolf memories
that tear the skin apart
Wolves that once were men
and shall be them again
or perhaps memories of men
who insist of not tearing for to be wolves
but that never shall be them again...

Somos memórias de lobos que rasgam a pele
Lobos que foram homens
e o tornarão a ser

They awake for flesh
Choose pain as a path
Refuse a light
To blind you and me

Full Moon Madness,
We are as one and congregate
Full Moon Madness
We rise again to procreate

Somos memórias de lobos que rasgam a pele
Lobos que foram homens e o tornarão a ser
ou talvez memórias de homens.
que insistem em não rasgar a pele
Homens que procuram ser lobos
mas que jamais o tornarão a ser...

They awake for flesh
Choose pain as a path
Refuse a light
To blind you and me

Full Moon Madness,
We are as one and congregate
Full Moon Madness
We rise again to procreate to seal our fate

Irreverence was cast out from the sky
And eternity lost its sex forever
And under the same heaven they voted to emptiness
They still celebrate under a Full Moon Madness...

They awake for flesh
Choose pain as a path
Refuse a light to blind you and me

Irreverence was cast out from the sky
And eternity lost its sex forever
And under the same heaven they voted to emptiness
We still celebrate under a Full Moon Madness...

Zoetrope


I offer you the emptiness which you seek...


Directed by Charlie Deaux, music by Lustmord, inspired by Kafka's short story "In The Penal Colony"

"The world of "Zoetrope" is absolutely impeccable. Charlie Deaux has created a nightmarish vision of man crushed and destroyed by the mechanistic devices of science, politics and bureaucracy. Beautiful in its brutality, poetic despite being so unrelentingly grim, Zoetrope is a must see in the world of post-apocalyptic film that marks Deaux as a significant talent, a man who needs to be watched."

Apathy




Lost To Apathy

The unsaid tone of weak despair
fail to resonate
frayed ends of our binding
threads will disintegrate

By laws our physiques state
failure to communicate
none too sentient hear no,
see no works its magic against all function
ongoing choices the trials will end
filter the nonsense and laugh at what's left
indecision / nonvision
what matters taken away

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon the battle is over
Lost to apathy

So overcome with pointless tears
to test pain receptors
nothing matters ever here
put up a nonreaction
these eyes will never see
covered up from reality

The unknown world that you deny
no priority
cannot fail if you never start
how predictable
i want to know where did it end
for madness to start
always the skeptic and never be part
introvertive/nondescriptive
it matters not
not

Fifteen men on a dead man's chest...


Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

  • PIRATE - a criminal who plunders at sea; commonly attacking merchant vessels, though often pillaging port towns.
  • CORSAIR - a more romantic term for pirate; French pirate
  • PIRACY - (nautical) robbery at sea, a violation of international law; taking a ship away from the control of those who are legally entitled to it.



Jolly Roger
The Jolly Roger is any of various flags flown to identify a ship's crew as pirates. The flag most usually identified as the Jolly Roger today is the skull and crossbones, a flag consisting of a human skull above two long bones set in an x-mark arrangement on a black field.
 Historically, the flag was flown to frighten pirates' victims into surrendering without a fight (with the implication that those who surrendered would be treated well). A red flag indicated "no quarter" (surrender will not be accepted).







Yo ho, yo ho, the pirate life,
The flag o' skull and bones,
A merry hour, a hempen rope,
And hey for Davy Jones.
(J. M. Barrie)







...and for the end of this post,
an old dilemma...

A Very SHORT Summary

First of all...
HAPPY NEW YEAR
boys and girls!



So...2010... Not bad. Winter was a bit too long for my taste. Can't help myself. I just simply hate it. Winter always turns me into a lazy house mouse. I had a good summer. Friends, concerts, parties... I really can't complain about that. Everything was "oh, so very normal"...except last ten days of 2010. They were like HELL! Bad things...bad news... WTF?! 
2011...New Year's resolutions? Nope! Never made one. :D 
Best wishes people!!! 

P.S. I-S-I-S-I-S-A-L-A-Z-Y-A-S-S XD
