I am sad not for you, not for me, for all of us[away]More Like This
when I'm sad,
don't grow sad.
my sadness flies away with the wind.
but when I'am happy,
don't be happy.
my happiness slips away with the rain.
quando sono triste,
la mia tristezza se la porta via il vento.
ma quando sono allegra,
la mia allegria scivola via con la pioggia.

Me: Excuse me...
Me: I was wondering where I can find any art by Max Ernst...
Him: ...Oh I don't think we have him here...
Me:hmmm...what about Marcel Duchamp?
Him: No...I don't think so...
Me: Tristan Tzara? Sophie Taeuber? Man Ray? Hannah Hoch?
Him: No...No...No...and No...
Me: aw c'mon... what about... I don't know.... what's her name...Alice Bailly?
Him: I can't say that we do....
Me: Well damn... could you maybe point me in the direction of the Kurt Schwitters stuff...
Him: Sir, we do not have those types of artists here...
Me: ...So, I guess it's safe to say you have.... Nada Dada?

i have been an eagle
i remember the pain of my prey in my talons
a warrior on horseback
i remember the smell of wind in mane
a monk of Skelling
i remember the saltiness on tunic
i don't know
if I want to be what I'm
sono stata un'aquila
ricordo il dolore della mia preda fra gli artigli
un guerriero a cavallo
ricordo l'odore del vento nella criniera
un monaco delle Skelling
ricordo la salsedine sulla tunica
se voglio essere quello che sono
Contemporary ThoughtWesternized World way of thinking has changed since the 1980's and I think this is something strange, breaking the pattern of progressing changes through the centuries.More Like This
It is not that values have changed - it’s not a question of conquests - but just a mutated modality.
Technological means (the Internet / TV) have shaped a new way of thinking (I call it advertising).
Only those who have been educated to think - through books, solitude, intelligent use of images, movies - are spared by this process.
They are the losers ... (Or the divergents, as in the novel and in the film).
You read the “advertising thinking” here (on FB), you see it in the movies of the 'big' directors, you read it even in new books.
Now you think in this way.
And I am not talking about reasoning through images, I am not talking about speed, I am not talking about everything that you continue to repeat using precisely this new modality (the philosophers and sociologists are not unharmed)
