Marcus had only wanted to go for a nice run, he felt the absolute need to go for a run, just strip himself of his human form, shake out his fur and feel the dirt under his paws. And it was glorious, wind in fur, senses on full blast as he ducked and weaved through the trees. And once it was over…he just stayed in his ashy toned form, he felt free and empowered in this form. He was originally going to head back, go home, shift and shower but he shook his head and then shook out his body. Letting out a huff he takes a step back before he hears a movement, pausing he lets out a growl.
When we were driving to RTX on Sunday we were at a stop light and saw Jon Risinger walking across in front of us. And we all just stopped talking and stared. Mainly because his hair was beautiful and glorious and majestically blowing in the wind. I started slowly reaching to roll down the window and my friend just goes “no”.
Greek films that draw their themes and visuals from the antiquity:
Μανία/ Mania (1985), by Giorgos Panousopoulos
A businesswoman (Alexandra Vantsi) goes out for a stroll in the National Garden. In this narrow patch of green in the heart of modern Athens, she is suddenly possessed by a sacred mania. Children run away from their parents and the animals from a petting zoo become free and run amok in the park under her influence. The police are called to arrest the woman that has caused the commotion. While everyone searches for her, she suddenly appears floating in the air in a scene of epiphany. She quickly vanishes leaving behind her a goat and a crowd of stunned policemen as well as her husband. The song at the end alludes to her union with the cosmos: “My soul passed above, vanished in the stars, I’ll put in your scarf three blessings of the world, the sun, the wind and the glorious moon”
This film draws its inspiration from the play of the Bacchae. The lead of the film, Zoi, loses her “logic”, for which she is greatly valued by those around her, only to attain a liberated form of consciousness. The film starts with the dawn in the National Garden, one of the last remaining parks in the city of Athens. The next shot reveals the Garden from the sky above as a small square of green in a sea of cement. Functioning as a portal to another world, nature may still overwhelm those who are sensitive to it and provide “us” with a chance to escape the narrow confines of “our” selves.
Shot with a really tight budget, the film relies on photography and editing to convey a deeply nuanced story.
2015.05.10In 60 meters altitude, Crown Princess Mary - in glorious sunshine and strong winds - inaugurated Denmark’s new major tourist attraction: Bridge Walking on the old Little Belt Bridge.
“I’m really excited,“ exclaimed a smiling Mary before the start. And here she goes - Denmark’s Crown Princess bridge-walking over the Little Belt. At the top she cut the ribbon, and inaugurated the new attraction "Bridge Walking Little Belt”.
The Crown Princess was all smiles, and revealed that she and Crown Prince Frederik had previously been bridge-walking on Habour Bridge in Sidney: - “There you’re walking in the middle of a big city. Here you’re walking out in nature. It’s fantastic.” She also assured that she will be back again, when her four children all have passed the 140 centimeters height, which is the requirement if one is to go bridge-walking on the Old Little Belt Bridge.
