uMpic de concluzie si mai mult de peisaje ... - de Dinu Lazar la: 30/11/2004 21:25:14
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Acu` iata care e problema; preturile nu trebuie sa fie socotite pe bucata de obiect, ci la timpul consumat. Ar fi deci, in cazul comenzii de fotografie comerciala, pretul la ora si la zi; asa, din cite aud pe aici prin Capitala, in sectorul editorial se platesc: cam 50$ - 150$ pe zi la revistele de femei, cam 300$ - 500$ revistele straine care au nevoie de reportaje, si minim 400$-600$ pe zi la lucrarile comerciale; la asta se adauga desigur TVA si toate cheltuielile.
Sunt si lucrari comerciale platite bine si fotografi romani care pot negocia si 2000$ pe zi, pina in 4000$ pe zi - cam 4-5 oameni maxim; cea mai bine platita sedinta foto din Ro de care stiu eu a fost de cam 18.000 euro/zi, unui fotograf strain, normal, pentru o pza de tot rahatu` la o agentie mare de publicitate.
Astea nu sunt venituri care se cistiga in fiecare zi; cine are citeva comenzi pe luna e mare boier, concurenta e mare, si fotograful roman atita are cap sa faca, in loc sa sporeasca prestigiul meseriei si bransei, coboara pretu, ca atita minte are. Asta e...
Socotit la singe, costurile exercitarii meseriei sunt mai mari la noi decit oriunde ( ma rog, cine vrea sa fie legal in toate cele) si veniturile cam de 10 ori mai mici ca oriunde. Ma si mir ca exista fotografi pe aici in aceste conditii. Dar vazind slaba sau execrabila calitate foto a imaginii profesionale, a calendarelor, prospectelor, afiselor, posterelor, imi dau seama ca fotograful roman e mai shmeker decit pare, si respecta intru totul zicala: ei se fac ca ne platesc, noi ne facem ca muncim.

Italienii au transat mult mai bine problema; dati o cautare cu Tau visual.
Iata citeva chestii care mi se par deshtepte dar care la noi nu se pot aplica, datorita calitatii morale a majoritatii fotografilor romani.

UNDERSTANDING HOW IT WORKS

The first distinction to make is between :
A) an image which has to be created expressly for the job in hand (committed works)
or:
B) the acquisition for the rights of use to an already existent image.

A) If an image has to be created from scratch then its final price will
include labour, production costs plus the acquisition of rights to publish
or use the image.

B) If the image already exists a recompense will be paid to the photographer or agency to acquire the rights of the chosen image.

THE PROFESSIONAL LEVEL

It is not possible to produce a uniform price guide which is valid for all
photographers given that there are many different professionals which compete within the market place with decidely different personal ability.

Each photographer is free to personally evaluate their own level and consequently choose which fees should be applied.

TAU VISUAL LIST OF PROFESSIONAL LEVELS

Capacity or possibility of prices below that of level 1 are to be considered out of the market and not plausible in correct professional conduct.

Prices superior to those of level 7 are possible in all cases of famous
photographers.

-- LEVEL 1 --- A professional of sufficient or medium capacity without particular specialization, active at a local level, normally or minimally equipped and generally speaking oriented towards low budget jobs.

--- LEVEL 2 --- A professional of sufficient or medium capacity in line with the majority of assignements offered in his area. Active in an ample area locally without particular specialization, normally equipped and oriented towards economic solutions for clients.

--- LEVEL 3 --- A professional of good preparation with a medium technical capacity in line with average quality standards, nationally speaking. Active at a provincial and or regional level with a reasonable number of clients acquired, not available for the more economic assignements. This photographer will sometimes require the services of an art buyer, stylist, make up artist, etc.

--- LEVEL 4 --- A professional well prepared with a technical capacity which is medium or medium-high. Active in different regions and able to guarantee a perfect technical level for all normal shooting conditions, with a complete range of equipment. This photographer will often require the services of an art buyer, stylist, make up artist, etc. according to the needs of the client. Oriented towards the selection of work offered with exclusion to those of minor interest. An interesting portfolio of clients with at least one job a year with a nationwide diffusion.

--- LEVEL 5 --- A professional who is very well prepared with a medium-high or high level technical capacity, without doubt very well known compared to the average photographer in the same area; active both regionally and nationally and able to guarantee technically perfect results for all the accepted assignments, requires other professionals for the solution of specific problems and oriented towards a selection of works offered, with a significant portfolio of clients, undertaking al least 3 or more jobs with a nationwide diffusion a year.

--- LEVEL 6 --- An exceptionally well prepared photographer working both technically and creatively at a very high level, significant in absolute.
Active at a national and international level, operating in the metropolitan centers at the highest professional levels. Oriented towards a severe selection of works offered, and to the construction of a good professional image, significant portfolio of clients acquired, almost all a national and
international level.

---LEVEL 7 --- a professional of undoubted international fame, active directly or through agents in at least two countries and operating at the maximum level both professionally and creatively.

DAY RATE

This is a fee-table used to calculate the price of a job that, by mutual agreement with the client, is not paid for each single photo, but on the basis of time employed to execute the assignment.

Working day in own studio (See note)

Fees listed by TAU Visual professional level – See description of levels.

Level 1 lire 400.000 200 euro 250 $
Level 2 lire 600.000 300 euro 375 $

double page 250 to 300 euro 315 to 375 $
front cover 350 to 450 euro 375 to 565 $

Si la noi deci se ofera 4 euroi pe poza. Buna treaba. D`aia sunt atitea mertzane si gipane pe strada, pentru ca fotografu` roman (inclusiv subsemnatul) e un incult in general si un incult economic in special si accepta si astia 4 euroi, facind atita rau acestei meserii.

Do you know we exist? - de psychedelic la: 10/04/2005 07:04:57
(la: Lacrimi Mangaiate de Realitate(partea a II a))
Do you know the warm progress
under the stars?

Do you know we exist?

Have you forgotten the keys
to the kingdom

Have you been borne yet
& are you alive?

Let's reinvent the gods, all teh myths
of the ages

Celebrate symbols from deep elder forests

[Have you forgotten the lessons
of the ancient war]

We need great golden copulations

The fathers are cackling in trees
of the forest

Our mother is dead in the sea

Do you know we are being led to
slaughters by placid admirals

& that fat slow generals are getting
obscene on young blood

Do you know we are ruled by T.V.

The moon is dry blood beast

Guerrilla bands are rolling numbers
in the next block of green vine

amassing for warfare on innocent
herdsman who are just dying

O great creator of being

grant us one more hour to
perform our art
& perfect our lives

The moths & atheists are doubly divine
& dying

We live, we die
& death not ends it

Journey we more into the
Nightmare
Cling to life
Our passion'd flower

Cling to Cunts & cocks
of despair

We got our final vision
by clap

Columbus groin got
filled w/green death

(I touched her thigh
& death smiled)

We have assembled inside this ancient
& insane theatre

To propagate our lust for life
& flee the swarming wisdom
of the streets

The barns are stormed

The windows kept

& only one of all the rest

To dance & save us

W/the divine mockery
of words

Music inflames temperament

(When the true King's murderers

are allowed to roam free

a 1000 Magicians arise in the land)

Where are the feasts

we are promised

Where is the wine
The New Wine
(dying on the vine)
resident mockery
give us an hour for magic
We of the purple glove
We of the starling flight
& velvet hour
We of arabic pleasures's breed
We of sundome & the night

Give us a creed

To believe

A nightr of lust

Give us trust in

The Night

Give of color

hundred hues

a rich mandala

for me & for you

& for your silky

pillowed house

a head, wisdom

& a bed

Troubled decree

Resident mockery

has claimed thee

We used to believe

in the good old days

We still receive

In little ways

The things of Kindness

& unsporting brow

Forget & allow

Did you know freedom exists
in school books

Did you know madmen are
running our prisons

w/in a jail, w/in a gaol
w/in a white free protestant
maelstrom

We're perched headlong
on the edge of boredom

We're reaching for death
on the end of a candle

We're trying for something
that's already found us

Wow, I'm sick of doubt
Live in the light of certain
south

Cruel bindings

The sevants have the power

dog-men & their mean women
pulling poor blankets over
our sailors

I'm sick of dour faces
Starong at me from the T.V.

Tower, I want roses in
my garden bower; dig?

Royal babies, rubies
must now replace aborted

Strangers in the mud

These mutants, blood-meal
for the plant that's plowed
they are waiting to take us into
the severed garden

Do you know how pale & wanton thrillful
comes death on a stranger hour
unannounced, unplanned for

like a scaring over-friendly guest you've
brought to bed

Death makes angels of us all
& gives us wings
where we had shoulders
smooth as raven's
claws

No more money, no more fancy dress
This other kingdom seems by far the best
until its other jaw reveals incest
& loose obedience to a vegetable law

I will not go
Prefer a feast of friends
To the Giant family

Steel doors lock in prisoner's screams

Scratched on foreheads of walls of trust

show-off penury and pout
ravings for a mad staff

Wow, I'm sick of doubt

Great screaming Christ
Upsy-daisy
Lazy Mary will get you up
upon a Sunday morning

"The movie will begin in 5 moments"
The mindless Voice announced
"All those unseated, will await
The next show"

We filed slowly, languidly
into the hall. The auditorium
was vast, and silent.
As we seated and were darkened
The Voice continued:

"The program for this evening
is not new. You have seen
This entertainment thru and thru.
You've seen your birth, your
life and death; you might recall
all of the rest -- (did you
have a good world when you
died?) -- enough to base
a movie on?"

An iron chuckle rapped our
minds like a fist.

I'm getting out of here
Where're you going?
To the other side of the morning
Please don't chase the clouds
pagodas, temples

Her * gripped him
like a warm friendly
hand.

"It's all right.
All your friends are here."

When can I meet them?
"After you've eaten"
I'm not hungry
"O, we meant beaten"

Silver stream, silvery scream,
impossible concentration

Here come the comedians
look at them smile
Watch them dance
an indian mile

Look at them gesture
How aplomb
So to gesture everyone

Words dissemble
Words be quick
Words resemble walking sticks

Plant them
They will grow
Watch them waver so

I'll always be
a word-man
Better than a birdman

But I'll charge
Won't get away
w/out lodging a dollar

Shall I say it again
aloud, you get the point
No food w/out fuel's gain

I'll be, the irish loud
unleashed my beak
at peak of powers

O girl, unleash
your worried comb

O worried mind

Sin in the fallen
Backwoods by the blind

She smells debt
on my new collar

Arrogant prose
Tied in a network of fast quest
Hence the obsession

Its quick to admit
Fats borrowed rhythm
Woman came between them

Women of the world unite
Make the world safe
For a scandalous life

Hee Heee
Cut your throat
Life is a joke

Your wife's in a moat
The same boat
Here comes the goat

Blood Blood Blood Blood
They're making a joke
of our universe

Are you more real than me
I'll burn you, and set you free
Wept bitter tears
Excessive courtesy

Did life begin in ice?
Aug. 9, 2005
Special to World Science

New findings are backing up a theory that life originated in ice, researchers say. If it’s true, they add, it could boost the chances that life might turn up in places considerably colder than our planet. The theory departs from mainstream thinking on the origins of life, which usually assumes a warm, or hot, and wet environment was necessary.

“Conditions associated with freezing, rather than ‘warm and wet’ conditions, could have been of key importance” for the chemical reactions that led to life, wrote four researchers in the July 21 advance online issue of the Journal of Molecular Evolution, a research publication.

The scientists, including Laura F. Landweber of Princeton University in Princeton, N.J., argue that ice might have been a favorable environment to generate the first self-replicating molecules, a precondition for life.

These molecules would be of a type called ribonucleic acids, or RNA—a chemical cousin of DNA, which makes up genes.
Many researchers believe the first self-replicating molecule was RNA, not DNA. This is because RNA can do various things in addition to carrying genetic information, which is all that DNA basically does.

Some of RNA’s activities seem to be similar to what would be required for self-replication, something that DNA can’t do, strictly speaking. DNA needs the help of other molecules to copy itself. Also, RNA still exists in living cells, where it has various functions—some so basic to life that many scientists think RNA must have been there from the beginning.

The theory that RNA started it all, a 20-year-old proposal called the “RNA world hypothesis,” holds that RNA was not only the first self-replicating molecule, but also that it initially carried out most of life’s functions, such as metabolism and cell formation.

Most biologists consider the RNA world hypothesis at least plausible, but it has some problems. It’s not easy to explain how the first self-replicating RNA molecules might have arisen.

RNA molecules tend to fall apart under warm conditions outside of cells. This would prevent the buildup of the rather long, complex RNA molecules that would probably be needed to conduct life processes, according to Landweber and her colleagues.

Various conditions can prevent RNA molecules’ breakdown, the researchers argue. These include various types of water solutions, and freezing. But freezing may have been the one that most likely occurred on the early Earth, they argued.

Freezing usually slows down chemical reactions, which is why cold places are generally considered hostile to life. But freezing actually speeds up some of RNA’s key activities, Landweber and colleagues argue.

This is because ice contains hard, tiny compartments that hold the molecules in one place, where they can react together. Some of these reactions result in the creation of bigger RNA molecules.

In liquid water, by contrast, the molecules don’t come close enough together often enough to react as much. Thus they tend to fall apart faster than they can react to create bigger products.

In essence, the small compartments in ice play the role that cells today play in bringing the molecules together to react, Landweber and her colleagues argue. Dehydrated substances—a sort of primordial sludge, for instance—could also have provided a function similar to ice, they added, but ice works better.

Landweber’s group conducted an experiment to test the theory. Led by Alexander Vlassov of SomaGenics, a Santa Cruz, Calif-based biotechnology company, the researchers broke to pieces some RNA molecules found in normal cells. This process yielded more, smaller, RNA molecules.

By doing this, the researchers produced RNA molecules of sizes that biologists think might have been available on early Earth. They then experimented to find out what sort of capabilities these smaller RNAs had.

Reporting their results in the May 25, 2004 issue of the journal Nucleic Acids Research, the researchers noted that the broken-up RNAs still could carry out some of the same functions as normal RNAs, but only in ice or sometimes other extreme conditions, such as dehydration.

These activities included grabbing other pieces of RNA and attaching them together, an activity called “ligation” that is similar to self-replication.

To fully self-replicate, a molecule must attach other molecules together in such a way as to match the sequence of chemical pieces that characterize the first molecule. This process is called “template-directed” ligation.

But the ligation alone—even without the self-replication—can build up ever larger and more complex RNA molecules, which according to the RNA world hypothesis could eventually develop self-replicating abilities.

The theory that an icy environment might have helped jump-start life isn’t new. Researchers proposed in 1994, for example, that repeated cycles of freezing and thawing could help accelerate some of the chemical reactions necessary for life.

Such a scenario might have existed on early Earth, where according to some researchers, repeated meteor and comet impacts might have periodically melted an otherwise icy environment.

However, Landweber and her team seem to be the first to have provided an account of how the “RNA world” might have fit into this scenario, according to Leslie Orgel, an origins-of-life researcher at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in San Diego, Calif.

The work “has important implications,” said Jeffrey L. Bada, director of the NASA Specialized Center in Research and Training in Exobiology in La Jolla, Calif., one of the original proponents of the freeze-thaw cycle theory.

Although Landweber and her colleagues also wrote that freeze-thaw cycles are helpful for the processes they describe, such cycles aren’t strictly necessary in their proposal.

Moreover, they wrote in their Journal of Molecular Evolution paper, “It is worth noting that Jupiter’s moon Europa and even Mars are also thought to contain large amounts of liquid water and ice now or at some time in the past.”

The possibility of RNA activities in ice, they added, “lends some credibility to claims that the rather extreme environments of these extraterrestrial locations could have provided suitable conditions for the emergence of life.”
However, as Sergei Kazakov of Somagenics noted in an email, the origin of life and the RNA world aren’t necessarily the same thing.
“The RNA world as complex self-replicating molecular society could appear at multiple places in Universe, but not necessarily result in the appearance of life as we know it,” he explained. This transition may actually be rare, he added.
“I also think that Earth is a possible but not necessarily the best place where the RNA world could start. Rather, I would bet on Europa or a giant comet,” he continued. If the transition to life as we know it did occur, he added, “it could spread across many planets through cross-contamination,” carried by comets or meteorites.

Pentru cei ce sunt in zona fotografiei de stock - de Dinu Lazar la: 15/10/2005 18:14:53
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
For so long in the stock photography field there have been highly segmented
pockets of interest. Now there is a new defacto organization forming and
growing very rapidly to represent all involved in stock imagery. Hopefully
this will not be received as spam, but, rather, as a simple means of letting
all know of a new source for information, communications, and valuable
resources. There is currently no charge to apply for membership.

International Stock Imagery Association

I.S.I.A. exists as an industry association that represents the needs of
those actively involved as professionals in stock imagery around the globe.

To create an environment for communications conducive to the continued
Development and maintenance of ethical and professional standards and
practices based upon respect for the individual.

To establish and maintain an association based upon inclusivity wherein all
views may be heard regardless of age, income, experience, affiliation with
other associations, channels of distribution or other areas that may have
divided the industry in the past.

To accomplish our goals requires member participation and the development of
services and offerings including:


Professional development and training

Opportunities and vehicles for two way communications and news delivery

Market and industry research and analysis

Developing a platform and vehicle for industry presence and voice,

Representation of member and association views and positions within the
association and the
industry.



Each of these key areas will be developed based upon the needs of the
Individual. Through a combination of all of the above, to create and
maintain an environment of support, encouragement, and resources to assist
in achieving success, whether seasoned veteran or newcomer.

eu nu cred in reincarnare - de oanalaur la: 05/11/2005 07:07:39
(la: Reincarnarea)
am gasit o explicatie amuzanta (dupa parerea mea) despre sursa de suflete pentru numarul din ce in ce mai mare de oameni. v-ati gandit vreodata ca oamenii sunt din ce in ce mai multi dar din ce in ce mai putine animale? e, acolo e explicatia!

"If there's only a fixed number of souls, how has the world population increased?
This is often heard from people who don't believe in reincarnation. First, if people don't believe in reincarnation, why would they believe in a limited number of souls? And one has to ask such people why they really expect that there is a limit to life within in the universe. However having said that, it is interesting to note that as man's population has increased, the animal kingdom has gradually been decimated - and that is where some mystics say human souls gradually evolve upwards from. (Note the most plentiful forms of life on the planet are insects, and think of the amount of forest humankind has destroyed since the dawn of civilisation.) Also of note, highly advanced Yogis state that life exists on many other places in the unlimited expanse of the universe, in which case the planet Earth would be only one of many places for souls to inhabit."

Never Mind Winning a War, the French Can't Even Stop a Riot

By Jim Kouri
Nov. 7, 2005

Imagine for a moment that the City of New York is engulfed in smoke from thousands of burning cars. Young men are shooting at cops and beating anyone with whom they come into contact. Imagine that for 11 days young immigrants from Arab and North African countries roamed the streets of New York carrying weapons, gasoline bombs and Molotov cocktails defying government officials and police officers who are prevented by a politically-correct orthodoxy from taking any offensive action.

Then imagine that while all of this chaos is going on, night after night after night after night, the President of the United States finally gives his first televised speech after the 10th day of civil unrest, and he tells New Yorkers and Americans that he's considering sending in the military or initiating a curfew; that he's called a meeting of government officials to discuss the options they may employ to quell this riot turned insurrection. He gives a televised well-written speech while marauding youths roam the streets like prowling lions seeking those whom they may devour.

What do you think the mainstream news media would do to the President? Look what they did to Bush after Hurricane Katrina and multiply that by ten. And they would be right to savage him in the pages of our newspapers and news broadcasts. We're talking dereliction of duty here.

Yet, the denizens of our nation's newsrooms appear willing to give France's President Jacque Chirac a pass for just such behavior.

Ten days and then he addresses the people of France? Ten days of violence and destruction and Chirac finally outlines a tepid strategy for putting down an insurrection within his own country?

And the news media give him the largest of passes. Here's a sampling of the headlines to which Americans awoke after the 11th night of the French insurrection:

"Chirac Vows to Restore Order"

"Chirac Breaks His Silence on Riots"

"Chirac Vows Action"

"Chirac Pledges to Restore Order"

"French President Says Restoring Order a Priority"

"Chirac Vows Arrests for Rioters"

That's just a sample of the headlines appearing in newspapers across the US. No accusatory headlines for the French president. No condemnation of France for allowing a dangerous and deadly situation to go relatively unpunished. One suspects that the news media are giving Chirac this pass because: (a) He opposed the Iraq war; (b) He's a big, cuddly socialist; (c) news people -- who are overwhelmingly liberal -- believe all the hype about French sophistication as opposed to the redneck, backwoods mentality that exists in the US.

I recall how radical attorney Ron Kuby even joked about French resolve to fight. When the Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge unveiled his color-coded alert system, Kuby, an avowed Marxist, remarked on WABC radio that France also unveiled their own alert system: Green - Run, Yellow - Hide, Orange - Surrender, and Red - Collaborate. He's not far off from the truth and the current events in France tend to confirm Ron Kuby's characterization of the French.

In 2004, a giant of the broadcast media, Mike Wallace, was celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the World War II Invasion of Normandy by US, British, Canadian and Australian troops. Wallace was observed on camera at a table with several US WW2 veterans discussing the differences between that war and the Iraq war. The pompous newsman ridiculed the US-led coalition as a farce -- a phony coalition when compared with the huge coalition that pushed the Nazi hordes out of France.

Well, it didn't take a lot of research to disprove Wallace's assertion, since most of it is common sense and common knowledge. We were fighting the Germans, Italians and Japanese, so cross them out as part of the WW2 coalition. Poland, Holland, Belgium, and many other Europeans countries were occupied, so except for a few soldiers exiled in London, they weren't part of any WW2 military coalition.

France was not only occupied, but they collaborated so much with their Nazi captors that the Germans were able to have the French police to do their dirty work for them when the French voluntarily took the lead in rousting French Jews and sending them on their way to the Nazi death camps. Chirac once denigrated American foreign policy as being overly simplistic. I guess a sophisticated French foreign policy is rounding up thousands and thousands of Jews for extermination.

So, Mr. Wallace, what nations were in this huge coalition which invaded Normandy on June 6, 1944? The United States and Britain, with assistance from the Aussies and Canadians. Mr. Wallace may be considered a giant in the field of journalism, but a high school dropout with access to the internet is probably more knowledgeable about history.

To be fair, the French army did fight during World War II. They fought US soldiers who were landing in North Africa. But once the Americans returned fire, the French soldiers did what they do best -- surrendered. So is anyone surprised at France's inability to put down an insurrection in its own cities? But cheer up, New York Times, maybe Chirac can figure out a way to blame Bush and America for his own ineptness. The governor of Louisiana and mayor of New Orleans got away with it. Viva Le France!

este mai degraba o "deviatie" comportamentala,sexuala.
Deviatie de la ce ? De la "normal"? Si cine poate garanta normalul? Dupa mine, e normal sa faci ce simti si anormal sa incerci sa te schimbi pentru a urma "calea dreapta" stabilita de oameni care nu au nimic de-a face cu tine.

Multi dintre homosexuali au o inteligenta peste medie si sunt extrem de talentati.Deci n-ai de ce sa fii complexat peste masura.
Asta cum vine? Orientarea sexuala influenteaza inteligenta sau creativitatea? In caz ca n-ai vorbit doar "ca sa-ti racesti gura", cred ca ar fi de bun simt sa aduci niste lamuriri.

(la: ultima carte citita)
lady-lorelei : ultima carte pe care am citit-o e "Zilele de la Clichy" - Henry Miller, cartea actuala e "Primavara neagra" - Henry Miller.

P.S.: despre "11 minute" am vorbit deja o gramada (si nu numai in cafenea), asa ca o sa ma scuzi daca nu exprim pareri.

anisia: cum ti s-a parut "Incestul"? Eu am citit de curand "Stairs of fire" si "A spy in the house of love" care mi-au placut teribil. De "Jurnal" inca nu m-am apucat pentru ca nu l-am gasit.
Cand ai vreme da un semn de viata, chiar sunt curioasa sa aud pareri in legatura cu Anaïs Nin.

1.sa zicem un... 20% din timp - de Honey in the Sunshine la: 10/01/2006 01:09:46
(la: Carti)
1.sa zicem un... 20% din timpul liber, dar nu e un procent constant. Uneori nu deschid o carte saptamani intregi, alteori lectura e activitatea mea principala (atunci cand se intalnesc timpul necesar cu pasiunea pentru vreun autor).

2.prefer cartile cumparate (in general din librarii si de la vanzatorii de carti vechi - ambulanti sau anticari). Cu cartile in format electronic nu ma descurc defel si nu reusesc sa ma obisnuiesc. Singurele pe care le-am citit in pdf au fost volumele 5 si 6 din Harry Potter pentru ca nu aveam rabdare sa se editeze in romana sau italiana.

3.Hmm... ce gen de carti ? Pai cu siguranta nu cele "de specialitate". Nu am citit niciodata o carte despre principii economice sau stiinte in general. La un moment dat ma preocupa psihanaliza si volumele alea, impreuna cu cateva carti de filozofie sunt singurele carti "non-beletristice" pe care le-am citit.
In rest, romane cu gramada, citite alandala, evoluand de la Dostoievski la Virginia Woolf, apoi la Joyce, Thomas Mann si Henry Miller (exemple aleatorii, ca sa se inteleaga ce harababura totala a fost si este "planul meu de lectura").
Versuri citesc rar desi ma intorc, periodic, la Minulescu, Foscolo si Emily Dickinson (nici eu nu inteleg predilectia asta).
Adaug ca inafara de "Solaris" nu am citit nici o carte SF si inafara de "niste" Jules Verne, nu am citit romane de aventuri.

(la: Stiti sa folositi "bisturiul"?)
Bisturiul asta al tau imi da frisoane pe sira spinarii.. :)
Eu nu tai in mine... Prea curge sange, si prea raman cicatrici. Prefer sa vindec? Cum? Iubind si invatand sa gasesc placere intr-un sacrificiu care merita la fel cum, instinctiv, gasesc in egoism.
Nu stiu din care gena a ADN-ului mi se trage sadismul, dar uneori il stapanesc destul de greu. Stiu ca e rau pentru ca mi-o spune sentimentul de vina si de profunda nefericire pe care-l am dupa ce fac rau constient cuiva.
O alta parte a raului ar fi fixismul, dar asta inca nu am invatat sa-l controlez. Cred, oricum, ca "bisturiul" sau "tratamentul" il aduce intelepciunea si imi place sa sper ca odata cu trecerea timpului devenim tot mai buni, mai toleranti si mai putin egocentrici.

Nu am nume preferate. M-am gandit de multe ori la un nume cu adevarat perfect, dar nu l-am gasit niciodata.
In cazul copiiilor mei, probabil as face un compromis si i-as numi Alexa sau Nichita (in functie de sex).

La fiecare calatorie cu metroul am dat de cel putin un compatriot tuciuriu si cantaret. Printre care o femeie foarte tanara care tragea pe un carut o boxa si canta la microfon :) Tot ce am reusit sa zic a fost "ah... addirittura!":)

M-a socat si numarul strainilor pe strazi... in speta romani. Oriunde intorceam capul auzeam vorbindu-se romana de parca s-ar fi mutat la Roma capitala Romaniei.

In alta ordine de idei, Roma e fabuloasa. Si am si mancat bine:) Inca mai simt in gura gustul unor agnolotti "fatti in casa".. o nebunie.
As fi vrut sa te vad, mai ales ca am stat 5 zile si s-ar fi gasit timp... dar ne-am hotarat pe neasteptate si te credeam in Romania.
