A big thanks to Lonk ( http://lonk.tumblr.com/ ) for getting this from my piss poor description! The drawing exercise I was referring to in my previous post was taken from this fantastic video by Will Terell.

He makes it look so easy… a little too easy…

If you are in some sort of rut, or just fancy a spot of fun I couldn't recommend this more.

Enjoy! 

Alex.

Tóth Ágnes: Te

Ha megérinted a kidöntött fákat
Fészkeikre a madarak visszaszállnak
Kifésülöd hajamból a múltat
Sikongva a magasba hullnak
A folyót forrásához tereled vissza
Tisztuljon a szennyezett föld ha issza
Megtörve senki meg ne lásson
Jegenyeszobor vagy a tájon
Állsz szakadék szélén magadra várva
S úgy mész keresztül mintha a híd állna

10/8/17: EL BAR

There’s a handful of movie plots that I just can’t take anymore. Like I have a hard time even getting myself to watch reputable films that might really appeal to me personally, if they involve: 

  • Mature adult characters whose minds are totally blown by the fact that they can fuck each other.
  • People trapped in a traumatizing situation that makes everyone paranoid so they turn on each other in some Lord of the Flies type of nonsense.
  • A group of disparate strangers whose lives interconnect in “surprising” ways.

Álex de la Iglesia’s latest blackly comic thriller EL BAR arguably involves two out of three of these potential problems. Luckily for me, I watch every single de la Iglesia movie no matter what I think it’s going to be about.

That isn’t to say that this is on the high end of the director’s achievements–it’s just that even a middling de la Iglesia product is still a preferable entertainment source to a lot of what’s out there. His signature hyperkinesis and machine gun banter that fans know and love are in abundance in this high strung tale of terror, or perhaps terrorism, about a gaggle of randos who find themselves trapped in a cafe when a shocking execution takes place right outside the door. When the situation on the street mysteriously worsens, the group divides into warring factions, one of which embarks on an extremely ill-advised escape attempt.

I hesitate to describe the events in detail not only because certain surprises ought to be preserved, but because there isn’t really that much to say. This premise is unavoidably predictable, with the expected destabilization of different characters made more interesting mainly by the handful of de la Iglesia alums in the cast. (The film’s most serious gaff is that there is not more of the late and impossibly great Terele Pávez in it) An exciting element of body horror enters the picture and passes along too quickly, making way for less outrageous but admittedly cringe-inducing scares, like a lengthy project of shoving a live human being through a preposterously tiny drainage hole. In the end though, too much of the film is taken up by the usual twists and turns of this familiar type of story, and EL BAR fails to rise above the basic thrill of seeing a new one of the director’s endearingly warm and delightfully violent movies.

While I’m being such a dick about a filmmaker whose very existence fills me with gratitude, I’ll allow myself to ruminate briefly on what makes de la Iglesia’s witty, percussive productions feel a little slow at times. It’s a great mystery to  me. His imagery dazzles, his dialog sizzles, and yet there’s always a point late in the game where the film begins to drag a little. I’m almost never able to think of specific scenes that I feel are overstaying their welcome, or plot elements that I would choose to jettison. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps his scripts are so densely chatty that even if things appear to move right along, there’s just too much to chew on for movies that are typically closer to 115 minutes than they are to a cleaner 90.

Now that I’ve been so negative about a creator who does almost nothing but bring me joy, I have to advise everyone within figurative earshot to go out and see MUTANT ACTION and DAY OF THE BEAST and COMMONWEALTH and DYING OF LAUGHTER and really anything else you can get your hands on. Unless of course there’s something wrong with you where you hate pleasure, which obviously I kind of understand.

I took a day to forage, intently did i peruse-
a forest floor revealed to me in vastly numbered hues

Drawn to deeper quarters, I found the mother lode of ‘terelles
but knew full well a few steps back sat jack - O! His malicious tales!

Beckonin’ buttons be a bargainin’ bane, I’d wager not a’ lackin’ certainty
but I’d capture the light as it rendered sight of their charm without it hurtin’ me.

“Bad or good?“ Thought you’ll have, though judgement doth dishevel.
All are inherently great, if you will, but a simmerin’ is an end to the revel.

Zodiac Love Songs!

Love, especially the romantic kind, is the most wonderful and exciting part of being human — as well as the most difficult. It certainly does “take two” — the trick is to get and keep those two on the same page. That’s why so many different types of love songs have been written, about everything from new love to forever love to unrequited love. The list is as endless as the feelings love inspires. Here’s a peek at what each sign likes to hear, no matter what they’re feeling.

Aries
This fiery sign doesn’t go for your basic Air Supply type stuff — and don’t ever, ever play Barry for them (Manilow, that is … Barry White will do fine, especially with champagne and chocolates). In particular, they’ll like love songs that have a rock and roll beat to them. Something that reflects their Fire element — like “Fire” by the Pointer Sisters, a classic that will rev them up in all the right departments, or “Fire on High” by ELO. Oh, and if they’re angry? Expect to hear “Love Stinks” (J Geils Band) or “I Will Survive” (Gloria Gaynor).

Taurus
Taurus natives play for keeps in all departments, and when it comes to romantic love, the person you love belongs to you (in your mind, at least!). You, Taurus, are the personal property of Venus,

Love Songs of the Zodiac Signs!

Love, especially the romantic kind, is the most wonderful and exciting part of being human — as well as the most difficult. It certainly does “take two” — the trick is to get and keep those two on the same page. That’s why so many different types of love songs have been written, about everything from new love to forever love to unrequited love. The list is as endless as the feelings love inspires. Here’s a peek at what each sign likes to hear, no matter what they’re feeling.

Aries 
This fiery sign doesn’t go for your basic Air Supply type stuff — and don’t ever, ever play Barry for them (Manilow, that is … Barry White will do fine, especially with champagne and chocolates). In particular, they’ll like love songs that have a rock and roll beat to them. Something that reflects their Fire element — like “Fire” by the Pointer Sisters, a classic that will rev them up in all the right departments, or “Fire on High” by ELO. Oh, and if they’re angry? Expect to hear “Love Stinks” (J Geils Band) or “I Will Survive” (Gloria Gaynor).

Taurus 
Taurus natives play for keeps in all departments, and when it comes to romantic love, the person you love belongs to you (in your mind, at least!). You, Taurus, are the personal property of Venus, the Goddess of Love, so the perks of being your companion are excellent. Still, there are two romantic songs that immediately spring to mind when it comes to the type of love Taurus feels: “Always and Forever” (Luther Vandross) and “Let’s Stay Together” (Al Green).

Gemini 
Okay, so everything you’ve ever read about your sign says that you’re fickle. Well, that’s not exactly true. You can be as faithful and reliable as a Taurus, provided you’re amused. That’s not as tough as it sounds. You’re tough, but you’re easy, too, as long as you have a mental equal who understands your need to banter and play. So let’s start with “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” (Animals) for obvious reasons, and to dispel all those rumors about that fickleness, how about “Unforgettable” (Nat King Cole), a tribute to the one ultra-special person they truly must be to have landed you!

Cancer 
Your sign is famous for many things, but what all your traits have in common is an incomparable talent for expressing love and affection. Even romantically, you do it through nurturing, protecting and letting the lucky object of your attention know, in many ways, that you cherish them more than anyone or anything else on the planet. There are two songs that really work for you: “Love Me Tender” by none other than Elvis “The King” Presley, and “Lady,” the ultimate tribute to a loved one, by Lionel Ritchie.

Leo 
Every sign has its own way of loving, and their own way of treating their loved one. Leo, however, thinks of love the same way this regal, royal sign thinks of everything else: as a magnificent, noble, elegant gift — the best and truest thing any two people can exchange. For that reason, there are two songs that suit your particular style of loving just perfectly: “The Glory of Love” by Bette Midler, and “Shining Star” by Earth, Wind and Fire, which describes their beloved as the Sun, the center of life itself — and Astrology’s very own “shining star.”

Virgo
You approach love the same way you approach everything else, Virgo, and it’s all reflected beautifully by “What’s Simple is True” (Jewel). In many ways, it’s an ode to the way you live your life: by the basics. You work very hard to keep your life drama-free. No scenes, no crises and as few arguments as possible. You’re also famous for being quite picky, and in the department of romance, that’s something other people really should learn. Once you do find your soul mate, there’s only one song you’d dedicate to them: “Waiting for a Girl [or Guy] Like You” by Foreigner.

Libra 
In all things romantic, your objective — and your M.O. — remains the same, Libra: to find the right person, entice them to get to know you better and then, if and when things work out, to romance them better than anyone else. The end goal is to find and keep your soul mate. The songs that come to mind for you are “Your Song” by Elton John, and “I Will Always Love You” by Dolly Parton (and many others), a classic that’s inspired more than one proposal.

Scorpio
Say the word “sexy” to any group of astrologers, and their immediate, unanimous response will be “Scorpio.” Obviously, any love song you identify with absolutely must have sexy words and a sexy beat. No sweet stuff here — just a potent, throbbing message, and lyrics that don’t play games. In that department, there are two songs that immediately come to mind: “Private Dancer” by Tina Turner, and “Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye. Play those for a new flame. If they appreciate the message, great. If they play them for you first, pick up your jaw discreetly and start thinking about two-bedroom apartments.

Sagittarius 
You’re a free-wheeling kind of soul, Sagittarius. You always have been and you always will be. For that reason, there are very few love songs that appeal to you. They’ve got to be the kind that reflect: (1) your love of freedom and (2) your secret wish to have the absolutely perfect travel partner on your arm as you patrol the planet looking for the next adventure. So, “Cowboy, Take Me Away” by The Dixie Chicks, regardless of your sweetie’s gender, is perfect for category 1, and “Almost Paradise” (by several artists) is tailor-made for number two.

Capricorn 
Your sign’s symbol has always been the Mountain Goat, who easily navigates even the most perilous ridge, showing its penchant for living life on the edge — but safely. So while you take your chances, especially with romance, they’re planned and deliberate. You wait until it’s safe, then go all out to scale that mountain. For all those reasons, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terell is a classic that suits you … your inner desires and your ambition to succeed once you’ve set any goal. Now, there’s one way for you to present yourself, and one thing you ask, hence song number two: “Just the Way You Are” by Billy Joel.

Aquarius 
“I’m Real,” by Jennifer Lopez. To be honest, it’s the best song ever written about your sign, and you should hand-deliver it to anyone you’re initially drawn to. The main reason is one line: “What you get is what you see.” You, Aquarius, are the most open, honest and genuine sign out there. Song number two, “The Closer I Get to You” by Luther Vandross, should also be hand-delivered, but not until you’re sure that he or she is the real deal. You know how you get with the independence thing, so until you are sure your love will be returned and your love of freedom will be respected, song number two will have to wait.

Pisces 
The three Water signs are the most sympathetic, understanding and warm-hearted of the twelve signs, and you’re the eldest of the bunch — so if anyone knows how to express love (sometimes to a fault) it’s definitely you, Pisces. That makes choosing love songs a tough job — mostly because no matter what feeling the song describes, you’ve been there. Dozens appeal to your tender hearts, especially when you’re madly, passionately in love, and absolutely spellbound by your beloved. Take, for example, “The Wonder of Love” by Elvis. “Dream Weaver” by Gary Wright reflects your spiritual side and your love of all things magical.

Ebben a világban legalább 5 ember van, aki úgy szeret, hogy meghalna érted, és legalább 15, aki igazán szeret Az egyetlen ok, hogy valaki utál, azt jelenti, hogy olyan szeretne lenni, mint te. Mosolyod azoknak is örömet okoz, akik nem szeretnek. Minden este gondol rád valaki elalvás előtt. Valaki nem tudna élni, ha te nem lennél. Különleges vagy és egyéniség vagy. Valaki, akinek a létezését figyelmen kívül hagyod, szeret téged. A legnagyobb hülyeség is, amit csinálsz, jó valamire. Ha úgy gondolod, mindenki hátat fordít, jól nézz körül. Elsősorban te vagy az, aki hátat fordít. Ha azt gondolod, nincs szerencséd, azért mert nem kaptad meg, amit akartál, akkor nem is kapod meg. Ha nem gondolod, akkor valószínűleg előbb vagy utóbb megkapod. Emlékezz a bókokra, amiket kapsz és felejtsd el a rossz megjegyzéseket. Mindig mondd meg az embereknek, mit érzel irántuk, jobban fogod érezni magad, ha tudni fogják. Senki sem érdemli meg a könnyeid és az, aki megérdemli, soha nem fog megsiratni. Ha van legjobb barátod, akkor legyen rá időd, hogy elmondhasd neki, mit jelent számodra. Küldd el ezt azoknak, akik fontosak neked és annak, akitől kaptad. Ha megteszed, akkor lehet, hogy szebbé teszed a napját, és jobb irányba tereled elgondolásait. Azt mondják egy percig tart, hogy észrevegyél valaki különlegeset, egy órát, hogy komolyan vedd, egy napot, hogy megszeresd és egy egész élet kell ahhoz, hogy elfelejtsd. Küldd el ezt a gondolatot azoknak, akiket soha nem felejtesz el.
