The Girl in the other room - de Pasagerul la: 04/05/2006 20:29:18

...
Maybe they're there
Or maybe it's nothing at all
As she draws lipstick smears on the wall

The girl in the other room
She powders her face
And stares hard into her reflection

The girl in the other room
She stifles a yawn
Adjusting the strap of her gown
She tosses her tresses
Her lover undresses
Turning the last lamp light down
What's that voice we're hearing
We should be sleeping
Could that be someone who's weeping
Maybe she's there
Maybe there's nothing to see
Just a trace of what used to be
The girl in the other room
She darkens her lash and blushes
She seems to look familiar

"The road not taken", de Robert Frost - de Rvaan la: 16/11/2004 14:12:58
(la: Cele mai frumoase poezii)
"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference"

Walking through the woods, a - de Horia D la: 10/02/2005 16:11:23
(la: Un nou forum: "Bancuri, glume, poante...")
Walking through the woods, a man comes upon another man hugging a tree with his ear firmly against it. He asks, "Just out of curiosity, what the hell are you doing?"
"I'm listening to the music of the tree."
"You've gotta be kidding."
"No, not at all! Would you like to give it a try?"
"Well, okay." So he wraps his arms around the tree and presses his ear up against it.
The other man immediately slaps a set of handcuffs on him, takes his wallet, jewelry, car keys, then strips him naked and leaves.
Two hours later, another nature lover strolls by, sees this man handcuffed to the tree, naked and asked, "What the hell happened to you?"
He tells the guy the whole story about how he got there. While he was regaling his plight, the newcomer is shaking his head in sympathy, circling him.
When the handcuffed man is finished talking, the second man walks around behind him, kisses him tenderly behind the ear and says, "This just isn't your day, is it, Sugar?"

Defapt nu apare nici un fotograf roman pentru ca...

"6. Why do you allow only photographers from EU and not from the other European countries? ?
EuroPhoto currently only accepts submissions from photographers in the EU. We do this because we wanted to start small and grow as time goes by.
For the moment, we are thinking about adding other countries but no launch date has been set yet. All depends on the time we have available to develop EuroPhoto (we make you guys and girls world famous without even getting paid)."

True australain ghost story

This story happened a while ago in Brisbane, and even though it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's true.
John Bradford, a Sydney University student, was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a very dark night and in the midst of a storm. The night
was rolling on and no car went by. The storm was so strong he could
hardly see a few feet ahead of him.
Suddenly he saw a car slowly coming towards him and stopped. John, desperate for shelter and without thinking about it, got in the car and closed the door, just to realize there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn't on!
The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road and saw a curve approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. Then,
just before he hit the curve, a hand appeared through the window and turned the wheel. John, paralysed with terror, watched how the hand appeared every time they came to a curve.
John saw the lights of a pub down the road so,gathering strength, jumped out of the car and ran to it. Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and asked for two shots of tequila.
He then started telling everybody about the horrible experience he went through... A silence enveloped everybody when they realized he was crying and....wasn't drunk.
About 15 minutes later, two guys walked into the same pub. They were also wet and out of breath. Looking around and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the bar, one said to the other, "Look, Bruce... Here's the F*cking idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it."

At The Taxman's Office

Ralph arrived at his tax audit accompanied by another man. The IRS guy assumed the other man was Ralph's attorney.

Going over his records, the tax official said, "Well, sir, it appears that you live at a much higher level than your reported employment income. How do you explain that?"

"I love to gamble and I usually win," replied Ralph.

The skeptical official gave him a disbelieving look.

"I can prove it," said Ralph. "How about a demonstration?"

The official thought a moment and said, "Okay. Go ahead."

Ralph said, "I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye."

The auditor thought a moment and said, "No way! It's a bet!"

Ralph removed his glass eye and bit it.

The official's jaw dropped.

Ralph said, "Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye."

The official could tell Ralph wasn't blind, so he took the bet.

Ralph then removed his dentures and bit his good eye.

The stunned official was now three grand in the hole.

"Want to go double or nothing?" asked Ralph. "I'll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on your desk and piss into that wastebasket by the door over there and never get a drop anywhere in between."

The auditor, twice burned, was cautious now, but there's no way this guy could manage that stunt, so he agreed again.

Ralph climbed up on the auditor's desk, missed the wastebasket completely, and pretty much peed all over the desk.

The official grinned. He had just turned a huge loss into a huge win! But then he noticed that Ralph's friend looked ashen and was visibly shaking.

"Are you okay?" he asked.

The man replied, "Not really. Before we arrived, Ralph bet me twenty thousand dollars he'd piss on your desk and you'd be happy about it."

2 Time Magazine Journalists Hurt in Iraq
By The Associated Press

19 December 2003

(AP) -- A senior reporter and a veteran photographer for Time magazine
were wounded along with two U.S. soldiers when a grenade was tossed into
their Humvee, the military and the magazine said Thursday.

Time senior correspondent Michael Weisskopf and contributing
photographer James Nachtwey were traveling with a U.S. Army patrol in
Baghdad on Wednesday night when the attack occurred, a statement from Time
managing editor Jim Kelly said.

A military spokesman said they were with a unit of the Army's 1st
Armored Division.

The military official, who spoke only condition of anonymity, said one
of the journalists was severely wounded and the other was slightly injured.
Time said both were in stable condition and were awaiting transfer to a U.S.
military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany.

Nachtwey is an award-winning photographer known for haunting images of
war and poverty. He was the subject of a 2001 Oscar-nominated documentary,
"War Photographer," and has won many awards. This year he shared a $1
million Dan David prize for documenting "the apocalyptic events of our
time."

Weisskopf is an award-winning correspondent based in Washington. He
covers national politics and investigations and was a finalist in the 1996
Pulitzer Prize for national reporting.

The Paris-based World Association of Newspapers has said that at least
16 journalists have been killed in Iraq this year. Many others have been
wounded.

In the last known incident, police said the editor of an independent
newspaper in the northern city of Mosul was shot and killed on Oct. 28.

Problema emigrarii - de (anonim) la: 18/02/2004 21:45:36
(la: De ce vreau sa emigrez)
Sint plecata din tara din Octombrie 1998. Aveam 26 de ani si... doua zile si... proaspata membra a Baroului Bucuresti. Aveam, totodata, un univers al meu, cu parametrii extrem de bine stabiliti si cu o mina de carti cistigatoare: familie, prieteni, profesie si un statut material foarte bun. Cu toate acestea am hotarit sa ma marit si, prin casatorie, m-am stabilit la NY. In 2000 am fost admisa la NY Law School pentru echivalarea studiilor iar in 2001 am luat examenul de barou pentru statul NY. A fost un efort crincen, atit intelectual (32 de materii) cit si fizic (12 ore de examinare). Am crezut ca, odata acest hop trecut si capatindu-mi un statut profesional extraordinar aici, mi-am rezolvat (mai) toate problemele. In fond sint maritata, nu? De fapt nu a fost asa de loc. Imi pare rau sa dezamagesc autorul acestui articol dar, din pacate, societea occidentala nu functioneaza deloc asa cum credem noi, atunci cind ne aflam inca in Europa de Est. Ne-am ivatat prost sa-i idealizam atit valorile cit si modul de functionare care nu este deloc impecabil, din contra. De la mizeria fizica in care oamenii traiesc, cel putin unii din ei, pina la oameni care mor cu zile in spitale din cauza negljentei doctorilor si pina la incultura crasa care este evidenta peste to. Vorbesc despre copii de 11 ani care nu stiu sa citeasca si de matematica de clasa a IX-a pe care noi o faceam in clasa a V-a. Vorbesc despre parinti care isi dau in judecata parintii pentru $300 si reciproc. Vorbesc despre modul de-a dreptul inuman in care se munceste aici, pentru aproape nimic si despre faptul ca esti SINGUR pentru ca nu ai timp de prieteni, sa ti-i faci si, daca ai totusi noroc sa ai doi sau trei, nu ai timp de ei, pentru ca pleci dimineata la 7 si vii seara la noua. Ca sa nu mai vorbesc despre faptul ca nu exista, pe fond, un sistem de pensii decit pentru lucratorii de stat sau guvernamentali. Ceilalti sint condamnati sa-si incheie activitatea la peste 60 de ani si sa primeasca o pensie de $1000/luna. Ca sa va dau o idee despre ce inseamna $1000/luna in NY am sa va spun ca un apartament cu 2 camere se inchiriaza aici cu $1200. In fine, ar fi multe de explicat dar, din pacate, nu pot exprima toata durerea unui emigrant intr-o pagina. Dealtfel nici nu stiu citi din cei ce vor citi aceste rinduri ma vor crede sau intelege. Imi este greu, pentru ca traiesc intr-o societate uscata, fara nici un fel de valori, in afara de cele pecuniare, infectata de ipocrizie si de o forma de comunism cu o fata care este alta decit cea pe care o stiam noi. Aici nu exista Ceausescu, in schimb exista marile corporatii care isi spala angajatii pe creieri cu slogane de tipul "team work" si "the difference between a team and a group of people is that the team is after a common goal, which is to help the corporation grow". Intrebarea care se naste logic intr-un astfel de context este "Bun, si ce am eu la afacerea asta? Daca corporatiei ii merge mai bine salariul meu e tot acelasi" Am atins si subiectul asta pentru ca inceputurile mele aici nu au fost deloc glorioase, din contra: am lucrat 7 luni vinzatoare la Lancome, inconjurata de femei care imi puteau fi mama si care aveau coeficientul de inteligenta al unui foetus si care erau foarte diligent dirijate de cite o mucoasa de 22 de ani proaspat absolventa a unui colegiu.
In concluzie, vreau sa va spun ce am descoperit un pic cam tirziu, dar poate ca nu prea tirziu: ceea ce conteaza in viata sint familia si prietenii, fara a se intelege ca nu are importanta saracia. Dar, un nivel de viata decent (ca al autorului articolului pe care il comentez) alaturi de caldura familiei si a prietenilor si a tot ceea ce cunosti sint mai importante decit sute sau milioane de dolari. De aceea contemplez serios ideea revenirii definitive in Romania, chiar cu pretul de a-mi sacrifica casatoria. Refuz sa accept ca ve veni o zi cind voi fi incapabila sa mai functionez normal in societate. Spun asta pentru ca imi dau seama ca ma indrept cu pasi rapizi si siguri spre acest dezastru. Am sa inchei cu o zicala americana: "Grass is always greener on the other side", din pacate.
Protestul in Imagini - de LMC la: 02/04/2004 12:57:53
(la: Imaginea Romaniei: un nou scandal in Franta.)
Okay, inspiratia cred ca ati avut-o dumneavoastra domnule Lazar cind v-ati pronuntat ca ar fi mai bine sa facem ceva mai bun decit un simplu protest, in alte cuvinte sa aratam lumii si alte imagini ale Romaniei. O imagine este mai buna decit o mie de cuvinte, nu? Un titlu simplu, "The Other Face of Romania" sau stiu eu ceva mai interesant, pus sub fiecare imagine iar pe spatele foii un mic paragraf care explica motivul pentru care se distribuie aceste imagini, cred ca ar fi destul. Aranjamentul pot sa-l fac eu, distribuirea se poate face in toate tarile pe unde ne aflam, atita timp cit ne putem oferi citeva ore din timpul nostru liber. La Mall-urile de prin occident sint mii si mii de masini parcate, si asemenea cum se face reclama pentru orice timpenie putem si noi sa facem la fel intr-un mod liber si fara nici o restrictie, cel putin la noi in America. Deci, am nevoie de imagini si o aprobare a textului. Toti care sint interesati pot sa participe. Nu o sa mutam munti din loc, dar asa cum se cinta in "Hora Unirii" impreuna vom avea putere in vocea de protest.

de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

Dupa cite stiu eu: hebrew = evreu
israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

Jew was a person born of a Jewish mother, but this formula suffers from the
defect that the defined word is included in adjectival form in the definition.
The same flaw occurs in part of the new definition enacted by the Israeli
Parliament in..1970, according to which a person is a Jew if he or she is the
offspring of a Jewish mother or has been converted to the Jewish faith by the
Orthodox Rabbinate or by the Rabbis of the Jewish Reform Movement or by the
Rabbis of the Jewish Conservative Movement.

2 a transf. and offensive. As a name of opprobrium: spec. applied to a
grasping or extortionate person (whether Jewish or not) who drives hard
bargains.
In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious
sense.

(la: Un nou forum: "Bancuri, glume, poante...")
A girl has brought her fiance home for dinner. After dinner, the fiance and the girl's father go into the study for a man to man talk.
'So, what are you doing right now?' asks the father.
'I am a theology scholar,' replies the fiance.
'Do you have any plans of employment?'
'I will study and God will provide.'
'What about the children?' asks the man.
'God will provide.'
'And your house and car?'
'Again, God will provide,' says the fiance.
After the talk, the girl's mother asks the father, 'So what did you two talk about?'
The man replies, 'He has no plans of employment, but on the other hand, he thinks I'm God.'

Never say these things to a cop

- Hey, you must'a been doin' about 125 mph to keep up with me! Good job!
- Sorry, Officer, I didn't realize my radar detector wasn't plugged in.
- I thought you had to be in relatively good physical condition to be a Police Officer.
- Excuse me, but is "stick up" hyphenated?
- Hi Officer, do you mind holding my beer while I find my driver's license?
- You know, I was going to be cop, but I decided to finish high school instead.
- "Bad Cop! No Donut!"
- I was trying to keep up with traffic. Yes, I know there are no other cars around, that's how far I am behind the other cars.
- You're NOT gonna check the trunk, are you?
- Didn't I see you get your butt kicked last week on "COPS"?
- I bet I could grab that gun before you finish writing my ticket.
- So, uh, you "on the take" or what?
- Gee, officer! That's terrific. The police officer yesterday only gave me a warning too!
- Do you know why you pulled me over? Good, at least one of us does.
- So, are you still crabby because your mamma didn't let you play with your gun when you were little?
- Hey is that a 9 mm? That's nothing compared to this .44 magnum.
- When you smack the crap outta me, make sure you smile pretty for the video camcorder.
- Is it true that people become policemen because they are too dumb to work at McDonalds?

"Nu tac!" - pt LMC - de OmuletulGoma la: 05/08/2004 01:19:07
(la: Despre Alegerile din S.U.A.: De ce trebuie sa votam pt. GWB.)
Da, in titlu il citez pe Goma.

LMC scrie:
Ai dorinta sa-mi inchizi gura, asta nu vei reusi niciodata. Atita timp cit am vlaga in mine, atita timp cit singele-mi pulseaza in vene, voi spune raului rau si binelui bine. Sa fiu sincera cu tine nu ma intereseaza ce faci sau ce face altul atita timp cit nu-mi baga nimeni pe git ideile murdare, sau guvernul tarii in care traiesc nu se asociaza cu ideile aceastea. Si eu cred ca am dreptul acesta. Nu te ingrijora, nu voi vota pentru infiintarea lagarelor de concentrare, dar vad ca lagarele de concentrare pentru care votezi tu sint aproape de infiintare. Cred ca vei fi primul care ma vei lua de la spate si ma vei impinge in cuptor impreuna cu toti ceilalti conservativi, crestini sau altii care nu-s de acord cu tine. Si inca mai ai tupeul sa-mi spui ca cica eu sint plina de ura. Ma intreb oare ce parere au parintii tai, sau bunicii tai despre tine si ideile tale.

De unde atata furie?
Nu vreau deloc sa-ti inchid gura, ti-am sugerat doar ca tacerea este mai buna decat acuzarea.
Conform regulilor acestui forum, eu am chestionat si combatut ideile dumitale, nu persoana. Nu am spus sau implicat ca ai fi "red neck", sau plina de ura. Parerea mea este doar ca esti "misguided", indrumata gresit. Nu am si nu vreau sa fac vreo judecata asupra persoanei dumitale, am mai spus-o. Ma leg numai de ideile pe care le promovezi.

Ma acuzi ca as accepta frumosul si bunul numai daca se potrivesc calapodului meu. Ba dimpotriva, eu incerc sa-ti arat ca bun si frumos mai poate exista si in afara abacului dumitale.
Eu promovez toleranta si ingaduinta, dreptate sociala, dumneata condamni "ideile murdare" pentru ca nu incap in normele dumitale de conduita.

Ti-am spus ca nu consider ca valabil decat Noul Testament, dar am gresit. Nu iau in consideratie decat ghilimelele atribuite lui Isus. Daca a fost divin sau nu, pentru mine nu conteaza - gasesc ca a fost un mare invatator. Tot restul bibliei pentru mine nu este decat dogma si/sau istoria lui Israel. Comentariile si interpretarile celor de "dupa" nu ma intereseaza. Eu il ascult numai pe invatator:

"For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses neither will your father forgive your trespasses." - MATTHEW 6:14-15

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. The second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets." - MATTHEW 22:37-40

"Why do you call Me good ? No one is good but God alone." - LUKE 18:19

"I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." - LUKE 5:32

"Beware of practicing your piety before men in order to be seen by them; for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven." - MATTHEW 6:1

"Blessed are those who Hunger and Thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied."Matthew 5:6

"Blessed are the Merciful, for they shall obtain mercy." Matthew 5:7

"Blessed are the Peacemakers,
for they shall be called Sons (and Daughters) of God." Matthew 5:9

"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven." Matthew 5:10

"Blessed are You when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account" Matthew 5:11

"LOVE ONE ANOTHER!"John 15:12

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." (NIV, John 13:34-35)

"Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." (Matthew 5:44)

"There is a saying, 'Love your friends and hate your enemies.' But I say: Love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way you will be acting as true sons of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust too. If you love only those who love you, what good is that? Even scoundrels do that much. If you are friendly only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even the heathen do that. But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect. (TLB, Matthew 5:43-48)

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' "But I say to you, do not resist him who is evil; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. (NAS, Matthew 5:38-39)

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. (NIV, Matthew 7:12)

"So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. (KJV, John 8:7)

Imi cer iertare celor care nu inteleg engleza. Nu am avut la indemana traducerea romaneasca, dar ce cititi mai sus nu sunt decat vorbele din Noul Testament atribuite lui Isus: intoarce si celalalt obraz, rasplateste raul cu bine, numai cel fara pata sa arunce prima piatra s.a.m.d

Ma pui pe lista celor ignorati...cine inchide gura cui?

Despre arta fotografica... de a face bani - de Tibi la: 25/08/2004 14:27:51
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Mi-a placut concizia acestui comentariu la http://luminous-landscape.com/
Pentru a nu va mai obosi cu cautatul l-am copiat aici:

Intrebare:

Hi, I am an instructor at a Fine Art College in FL in the Photography & Digital Imaging dept. and parents want to know how their childern (students) will make a living after they graduate. I am researching that question and would appreciate any help you have. Are their websites that will sell your images to catalog companies or to stores like Walmart (example) and how would you go about pricing your work wholesale?

Raspuns:

Seeing as how this thread has just been "observed" but no one responded, let me offer you my observations. First of all, I am not a professional. I used to be, but not with Fine Art prints, with Weddings and Commercial work.

Now, I figure folks here fall into one of two camps...

1) They really aren't able to survive on selling their artistic images alone and do other things like commercial assignments, photojournalism assignments, and photo seminars to suppliment their income.

2) They really do make a bundle on selling their photos and don't relish revealing their hard earned marketing wisdom to competition in a very small marketplace.

Very few can survive on Fine Art photography. Very Few. Those that do are simultaneously artistic masters and superb business people.

You will probably hate me for saying this, but, anyone entering college for a Fine Arts degree with an attitude of getting wealthy is woefully misinformed. There isn't anything about that curriculum that teaches you how to make it in the real world. On the other hand, you could use the degree to become a truly good photographer, but you are still left on your own for capitalizing on that asset.

I would guess that's not what you want to tell the parents.
