after Caravaggio, 1962 by Ross Watson

"The great majority of Caravaggio's patrons were from the Catholic church, and his paintings were sometimes rejected as they were viewed as inappropriate for a religious theme. I'm reminded here of my freedom as an artist. Imagine what Caravaggio might paint if he were alive today?"

"The little lost ball"

It was just after the war, in a small ball wich had suffered. On a trail of misery, They were two, uncovered. Among the rubbles they were dancing in this little ball wich was called ... called ... called ...

No, I can’t remember the name of the lost ball. What I remember are those two lovers who were watching anything around them. There was so much unconsciousness in their emotional gesture, then how important is the name of the the lost ball No, I can’t remember the name of the lost ball. What I remember is that they were happy looking eye to eye. And it was good ... And it was good.

They used to drink from the same glass, Always without leaving eyesight. They did the same prayer, to always be happy.

Among the rubble they were smiling in this little ball wich was called ... called ... called ..


And then when accordionist stopped, they left. The night was falling over the track, on the rubble and on my life. It became very sad this little ball which was called ... called ... called ..

No, I can’t remember the name of the lost ball. What I remember are those two lovers who were watching anything around them. There was so much light with them on the street So who cares in front of so much beauty for the name of the lost ball. No, I can’t remember the name of the lost ball. What I remember is that they were happy looking eye to eye. And it was good ... And it was good.

old fitness manual - reshoot

despite illness...

“A theater role was also a much better fit for me last fall than television,” she continued, referring in part to her decision to drop out of the NBC series “Parenthood” last September after her diagnosis. (Lauren Graham replaced her.) “I felt terrible leaving the ‘Parenthood’ team in the lurch, but doing the show would have been very stressful because I didn’t want that phase of my life documented on film. There is no HD in the theater.”

life is wasted on...people.

the imagination of disaster by Susan Sontag

[on Science Fiction Films]

On model scenario [of a typical science fiction film] proceeds through five phases:

1 – The arrival of the thing.

2 – Confirmation of hero’s report by a host of witness to a great act of destruction.

3 – In the capital of the country, conferences between scientists and the military take place, with the hero lecturing before a chart, map, or blackboard. A national emergency is declared.

4 – Further atrocities. At some point the hero’s girlfriend is in grave danger; There is an obligatory scene here of panicked crowds stampeding along a highway or a big bridge, being waved on by numerous policemen who, if the film is Japanese, are immaculately white-gloved, preternaturally calm, and call out in dubbed English, “Keep moving. There is no need to be alarmed.”

5 – More conferences, whose motif is: “They must be vulnerable to something.” Countdown. “But have we seen the last of them?”

Tidal Bore

"Pororoca" (2009) - Lia Rodrigues

The Best: the Tidal Bore concept behind the show; the essence of touching; The rawness of it all; The party.

The Worst: the big Paraphernalia of objects that are thrown in the beggining and that might as well not be there; the excess of highly stressed touching; The "urban jungle"

tweeting the classics

Such Tweet Sorrow...

Since Sunday, a new Twitter user who goes by the screen name @julietcap16 has been excitedly firing off posts about her typical teenage life, her frustrations with school and the birthday party she hopes her family will throw for her. But she’s not just any social-media savvy teen: she’s the online avatar for Juliet Capulet in a 21st-century update of “Romeo and Juliet” that the Royal Shakespeare Company has started online. BBC News reported that during the project, which is called “Such Tweet Sorrow” and will run for five weeks, actors playing Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers (who had their disagreements about the chirping of birds) and other characters from that tragedy will play out the story on Twitter and react to real-life events. Charlotte Wakefield, a actor in the Royal Shakespeare Company who is playing Juliet, has already tweeted about her new bed and her beloved deceased mother — not to mention the Robert Pattinson cutout she keeps in her bedroom.

Michael Boyd, the artistic director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, told the BBC that the goal of the project was to bring performers and theatergoers closer together. “Mobile phones don’t need to be the antichrist for theater,” he said.

inside Parnassus's mind

The New Myths

"By creating a mesmerizing world where the surreal and the hyperreal collide, The Helmet of Horror is a radical retelling of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur set in an Internet chat room. They have never met, they have been assigned strange pseudonyms, they inhabit identical rooms that open out onto very different landscapes, and they have entered a dialogue they cannot escape — a discourse defined and destroyed by the Helmet of Horror."
