Pleasure (Ćeif)


I hardly get any sleep during summer nights. I am never sleepy. Night owl by default plus fascinated by these short nights. Summer nights are not for sleeping.

Summer nights are for taking long strolls through the city in the dead of a night.

These are simple pleasures I enjoy.

Forest Home




Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.
(Herman Hesse)

GORČIN
Mak Dizdar
 
[i]
Ase lezit
Vojnik Gorčin
U zemlji svojoj
Na baštini
Tuzdi

Zih
A smrt dozivah
Noc i dan

Mrava ne zgazih
U vojnike
Odoh

Bil sam
U pet i pet vojni
Bez štita i oklopa
E da ednom
Prestanu
Gorcine

Zgiboh od cudne boli

Ne probi me kopje
Ne ustrijeli strijela
Ne posijece
Sablja

Zgiboh od boli
Nepreboli
Volju
A djevu mi ugrabiše
U robje

Ako Kosaru sretnete
Na putevima
Gospodnjim
Molju
Skazite
Za vjernost
Moju


Gorchin by Mak Dizdar
(translation: Francis R. Jones)

Here lyeth
Gorchin the solider
In his owen erthe
In a straungers
Lande

I was on lyf
Yet death I hailed
By day and nighte

Ne fly wolde I harme
Yet I went
For a solider

I strove
In warres five on five
Withouten buckler or maile
Ay alle at ones
Gorchin
Was no more

I dyed of straunge sic...knesse

Me pierced ne pyke
Me slew ne arrow
Me slote
Ne sworde

I dyed of sicknesse
Withouten hele

I did love
But my lasse was
Into bondage taken

If thou Cossara meetest
Upon the paths
Of our Lorde
Tell her
I bid thee
That I my troth
Did kepe

I should write a post

 True. I should. Being a bit lazy lately.
Thank you all for your GET WELL wishes!


Feeling much better now.
I am building my immune system with proper diet.


As for my Sarajevo Goth Day post...
It's been 7 days since that post and it seems to me that I am forever alone.


Don't worry. I am not giving up yet!

Well done, Isis!


I have a cold. Runny nose, sore throat, cough, muscles ache...the whole package! My immune system decided for this very subtle way of telling me:

You are doing it wrong BITCH!

Sarajevo Goth Day

Little something I started with couple of my friends. It all started with the intention to mark 22nd of May - World Goth Day.


Goth Day is a day where the goth scene gets to celebrate it’s own being, and an opportunity to make its presence known to the rest of the world.

So, we organized a party which went quite well considering the fact that we didn't had any previous experience in organizing this kind of event and that Goth subculture is not that popular in Bosnia.





We made Facebook page, Myspace profile...We decided to use Sarajevo Got Day as a tool for promoting Goth subculture and help others who are willing to do the same.

Second party...


...was complete and utter failure and we have only ourselves to blame. It was AD HOC type of a party and no wonder it failed.

At this moment the group is a bit deadish. Friends who helped me are too busy. I am the only one who is still jobless and with pretty much noting better to do. So...there are two options. I can organize official burial for the group or I can try and make this work somehow. The first option is an easy one and I can do it anytime I want. Second option requires work. Parties and concerts are not an option at this moment. I have an idea of promoting all this through events such as Lucky Market. T-shirts, badges, prints, art, jewelry, etc.
I will need help so... If anyone is willing to help in promoting Goth subculture in Sarajevo (Bosnia) please contact me via email:

gothday.sa@gmail.com
isis.dementia@gmail.com

Or via Facebook page.

Ideas, suggestions, etc are also welcome.
Artist, jewelry makers, fashion designers...Sarajevo Goth Day is more than willing to promote your work. 



Thank you!

Incredibly unproductive day


In my pajamas. Almost entire day.


Old Jack Skellington t-shirt and male long underpants...the best.

Coffee and Cigarets all day long.


Just one of those
