" Generals gathered in their masses,
Just like witches at black masses.
Evil minds that plot desctruction,
Sorcerers of death's construction.
In the fields the bodies burning,
As the war machine keeps turning.
Death and hatred to mankind,
Poisoning their brainwashed minds.
Oh Lord yeah!
Politicians hide themselves away,
They only started the war.
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor,yeah.
Time will tell on their power minds,
Making war just for fun.
Treating people just like pawns in chess,
Wait till their judgement day comes,yeah.
Now in darkness world stops turning,
Ashes where the bodies burning.
No more war pigs have the power,
Hand of God has struck the hour.
Day of judgement, God is calling,
On their knees the war pigs crawling.
Begging mercies for their sins,
Satan,laughing,spreads his wings.
Oh Lord,yeah! "

Nimic nu s-a schimbat,trecutul a devenit iar prezent.
"War Pigs",un clasic si very powerful song a fost scris ca protest impotriva razboiului din Vietnam.Cuvintele lui Ozzy exprima totul si sint potrivite si zilelor de azi in care traim un razboi pornit din interese proprii de niste politicieni care in viata lor s-au ascuns mereu si au fugit de el!

Instructions for a wife then and now
la: 16/11/2004 04:16:47
The following is from a 1950's Home Economics textbook intended for
the High School girls, teaching how to prepare for married life.
1. Have dinner ready: Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a
delicious meal - on time. This is a way of letting him know that you
have been thinking about him, and are concerned about his needs. Most
men are hungry when they come home and the prospects of a good meal
are part of the warm welcome needed.
2. Prepare yourself: Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed
when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and
be fresh looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people. Be
a little gay and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a
3. Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of
the house just before your husband arrives, gathering up school books,
toys, paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband
will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give
you a lift too.
4. Prepare the children: Take a few minutes to wash the children's
hands and faces if they are small, comb their hair, and if necessary,
change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to
see them playing the part.
5. Minimize the noise: At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise
of washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children
to be quiet. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be
glad to see him.
6. Some DON'TS: Don't greet him with problems or complaints. Don't
complain if he's late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with
what he might have gone through that day.
7. Make him comfortable: Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or
suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready
for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in
a low, soft, soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax and
8. Listen to him: You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the
moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.
9. Make the evening his: Never complain if he does not take you out to
dinner or to other places of entertainment; instead try to understand
his world of strain and pressure and his need to be home and relax.
10. The Goal: Try to make your home a place of peace and order where
your husband can relax.
Now The updated version for the 2000s woman.
1. Have dinner ready: Make reservations ahead of time. If your day
becomes too hectic just leave him a voice mail message regarding where
you'd like to eat and at what time. This lets him know that your day
has been crappy and gives him an opportunity to change your mood.
2. Prepare yourself: A quick stop at the "LANCOME" counter on your way
home will do wonders for your outlook and will keep you from becoming
irritated every time he belches at the table. (Don't forget to use his
3. Clear away the clutter: Call the housekeeper and let her know
you'll need her for an extra day this week. Tell her that any
miscellaneous items left on the floor by the children can be placed in
the Goodwill box in the garage.
4. Prepare the children: Drop them off at grandma's!
5. Minimize the noise: When he arrives at home remind him that the
washer and garbage disposal are still not working properly and the
noise is driving you crazy (but do this in a nice way and greet him
with a warm smile...this way he might fix it faster).
6. Some DON'TS: Don't greet him with problems and complaints. Let him
speak first, and then your complaints will get more attention and
remain fresh in his mind throughout dinner. Don't complain if he's
late for dinner. Simply remind him that the last one home does the
cooking and the cleanup.
7. Make him comfortable: Remind him where he can find a warm fuzzy
blanket if he's cold. This will show you really care.
8. Listen to him: But don't ever let him get the last word.
9. Make the evening his: a chance to get the washer and garbage
10. The Goal: To try to keep things amicable without reminding him
that you make more money than he does.

Trancaneala Aristocrata "3"
mai tii minte "rugaciune" mea?
God, grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I cannot accept,
and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had
to kill today because they pissed me off.
uite si completarea ;) sfarsitul e partea mea favorita, it's so like me!!!!
And also, help me to be careful of the toes I step on today
as they may be connected to the ass I may have to kiss tomorrow
Help me to always give 100% at work....
12% on Monday
23% on Tuesday
40% on Wednesday
20% on Thursday
5% on Fridays
And help me to remember....
When I'm having a really bad day, and it seems that
people are trying to piss me off, that it takes 42 muscles
to frown and only 4 to extend my middle finger and tell
them to bite me!

Oamenii nu se trag din maimuta
mersic de biblio...adevarat ca am citit cate ceva din fiecare cand eram mic, dar de asemenea, eram unpic razboinic si "vedeam" cam in genul "what I'd say to martians " by Jack Handey
WHAT I’D SAY TO THE MARTIANS
by Jack Handey
Issue of 2005-08-08 and 15
People of Mars, you say we are brutes and savages. But let me tell you one thing: if I could get loose from this cage you have me in, I would tear you guys a new Martian asshole.You say we are violent and barbaric, but has any one of you come up to my cage and extended his hand? Because, if he did, I would jerk it off and eat it right in front of him. “Mmm, that’s good Martian,” I would say.
You say your civilization is more advanced than ours. But who is really the more “civilized” one? You, standing there watching this cage? Or me, with my pants down, trying to urinate on you? You criticize our Earth religions, saying they have no relevance to the way we actually live. But think about this: if I could get my hands on that god of yours, I would grab his skinny neck and choke him until his big green head exploded.
We are a warlike species, you claim, and you show me films of Earth battles to prove it. But I have seen all the films about twenty times. Get some new films, or, so help me, if I ever get out of here I will empty my laser pistol into everyone I see, even pets.
Speaking of films, I could show you some films, films that portray a different, gentler side of Earth. And while you’re watching the films I’d sort of slip away, because guess what: the projector is actually a thing that shoots out spinning blades! And you fell for it! Well, maybe not now you wouldn’t.
You point to your long tradition of living peacefully with Earth. But you know what I point to? Your stupid heads.
You say there is much your civilization could teach ours. But perhaps there is something that I could teach you—namely, how to scream like a parrot when I put your big Martian head in a vise.
You claim there are other intelligent beings in the galaxy besides earthlings and Martians. Good, then we can attack them together. And after we’re through attacking them we’ll attack you.
I came here in peace, seeking gold and slaves. But you have treated me like an intruder. Maybe it is not me who is the intruder but you.
No, not me. You, stupid.
You keep my body imprisoned in this cage. But I am able to transport my mind to a place far away, a happier place, where I use Martian heads for batting practice.
I admit that sometimes I think we are not so different after all. When you see one of your old ones trip and fall down, do you not point and laugh, just as we on Earth do? And I think we can agree that nothing is more admired by the people of Earth and Mars alike than a fine, high-quality cigarette. For fun, we humans like to ski down mountains covered with snow; you like to“milk” bacteria off of scum hills and pack them into your gill slits. Are we so different? Of course we are, and you will be even more different if I ever finish my homemade flamethrower.
You may kill me, either on purpose or by not making sure that all the surfaces in my cage are safe to lick. But you can’t kill an idea. And that idea is: me chasing you with a big wooden mallet.
You say you will release me only if I sign a statement saying that I will not attack you. And I have agreed, the only condition being that I can sign with a long sharp pen. And still you keep me locked up.
True, you have allowed me reading material—not the “human reproduction” magazines I requested but the works of your greatest philosopher, Zandor or Zanax or whatever his name is. I would like to discuss his ideas with him—just me, him, and one of his big, heavy books.
If you will not free me, at least deliver a message to Earth. Send my love to my wife, and also to my girlfriend. And to my children, if I have any anyplace. Ask my wife to please send me a bazooka, which is a flower we have on Earth. If my so-called friend Don asks you where the money I owe him is, please anally probe him. Do that anyway.
If you keep me imprisoned long enough, eventually I will die. Because one thing you Martians do not understand is that we humans cannot live without our freedom. So, if you see me lying lifeless in my cage, come on in, because I’m dead. Really.
Maybe one day we will not be the enemies you make us out to be. Perhaps one day a little Earth child will sit down to play with a little Martian child, or larva, or whatever they are. But, after a while, guess what happens: the little Martian tries to eat the Earth child. But guess what the Earth child has? A gun. You weren’t expecting that, were you? And now the Martian child is running away, as fast as he can. Run, little Martian baby, run!
I would like to thank everyone for coming to my cage tonight to hear my speech. Donations will be gratefully accepted. (No Mars money, please.)

There's a new worm in the wild that specifically targets and
destroys Microsoft Office and Adobe documents (PSD files!)
on computer systems running the various flavours of Microsoft
Windows. This is a mass-mailing worm that propigates by blasting
copies of itself out to all e-mail addresses it finds on systems it
infects. It also has the ability to spread through network shares
so you may be hit by it if there's a dumb cluck elsewhere in your
office that compulsively opens e-mail file attachments.
The worm activates and destroys data on the third day of each month.
Here's the USA Today article:
Additional information and removal utility available here:
This worm is particularly nasty as it not only trashes data on your
main system, but it will also trash data on your external
attached storage devices. It will also attempt to disable
your antivirus software.
Please take the time to update the definition files of whatever
antivirus package you are using. For those without antivirus
software, I recommend AVG (www.grisoft.com) or Panda

mi se pare ca se adreseaza amaratilor sau disperatilor. Nici 'aroma sectanta' nu stiu ce este. Poate ca m-au calit atunci cand m-au botezat pe ascuns intr-o curte de biserica "preluata" de ortodocși de la greco-catolici?! Poate! Eu am respect pentru fiecare om in crezul lui.
viata lui Steven Demetre Georgiou sau Cat Stevens, acum Yusuf Islam poate va schimba optica ? sau perspectiva?
Stevens contracted tuberculosis in 1969 and was close to death at the time of his admittance to the King Edward VII Hospital, Midhurst; he spent months recuperating in hospital and a year of convalescence. During this time Stevens began to question aspects of his life, and spirituality. He later said, "to go from the show business environment and find you are in hospital, getting injections day in and day out, and people around you are dying, it certainly changes your perspective. I got down to thinking about myself. It seemed almost as if I had my eyes shut."
While on holiday in Marrakech, Morocco, shortly after visiting Ibiza, Stevens was intrigued by the sound of the Aḏhān, the Islamic ritual call to prayer, which was explained to him as "music for God". Stevens said, "I thought, music for God? I’d never heard that before – I’d heard of music for money, music for fame, music for personal power, but music for God!"
In 1976 Stevens nearly drowned off the coast of Malibu, California, USA and said he shouted: “Oh God! If you save me I will work for you.” He related that right afterward a wave appeared and carried him back to shore. This brush with death intensified his long-held quest for spiritual truth. He had looked into "Buddhism, Zen, I Ching, Numerology, tarot cards and Astrology". Stevens' brother David Gordon brought him a copy of the Qur'an as a birthday gift from a trip to Jerusalem. Stevens took to it right away, and began his transition to Islam.
During the time he was studying the Qur'an, he began to identify more and more with the name of Joseph, a man bought and sold in the market place, which is how he says he had increasingly felt within the music business.

Ce este un gentleman? (o parere victoriana)
Desi este foarte frumos citatul ales de tine (si convingator)eu cind am spus ce am spus m-am referit strict la ce am citit sub linkul afisat de Daniel . Un mic fragment:
´´He (the gentleman) has too much good sense to be affronted at insults, he is too well employed to remember injuries, and too indolent to bear malice. He is patient, forbearing, and resigned, on philosophical principles; he submits to pain, because it is inevitable, to bereavement, because it is irreparable, and to death, because it is his destiny. If he engages in controversy of any kind, his disciplined intellect preserves him from the blunder. [From The Idea of a University, 1852]
Probabil citeva cuvinte mi-au influentat impresia generala, mai degraba barbat cu caracter slab decit un gentleman....Si acelea sint: inevitable,resigned, irreparable, destiny.......

Iluzia hippie pierduta: Easy Rider la Arte.tv
"Crazy, but that's how it goooeeess,
millions of people, living like foooeeesss,
maybe it's not to laaaaate, to learn how to love ,
and forget out to haaaaate.."
Desigur un clasic, nu?1980, "Blizzard of OZZ"
Deci iata-ma iar le scris si .. .sper sa pot termina .De 12 ore muncesc in prostie
si poate am terminat,poate nu,depinde de ziua de miine si sper sa nu fie schimbari...chiar de-s platite e un calvar dar asta-mi e meseria.Sint artist illustrator in advertising si desenez si colorez etc.storyboards pt. reclame TV .
Lucrez de acasa si asta e o usurare mare.E altfel,caci iti faci timpul tau cum vrei,chiar daca e de lucru deseori in weekenduri.Hey,azi am facut 1200$!Ha!
Merita sa muncesti pe brinci,nu?Aici e cea mai bine platita munca artistica.
In fine,vroiam sa discut despre filme,de unde am ramas...cu 12 ore in urma.
Nu stiu cum agreezi filmele gen Matrix,dar am unul BUN pt. tine ,daca nu l-ai vazut:"EQUILIBRIUM"cu un f.f.f mare actor agreat de mine si sotia mea(e italianca-americana,gen.2),Christian Bale!!!
Poate l-ai vazut in "Empire of the sun"...avea insa 11 ani atunci si ce ROL!!!
A fost ales de Spielberg din ...4000 de copii atunci si NU a gresit.
Acum,Bale va fi noul Batman,in postproduction now.
Equilibrium e o tranzitie gen Matrix+1984,f.f.f bine jucat si realizat.Desigur ca avem DVD-ul in colectie ca si "1984",un film extraordinar si la subiect cu ceea ce traim aic!...BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU!
Daca poti citeste cartea lui G. Orwell,e fantastica!!!!
Sa fac o divagatie,Matrix este un film bun,primul definitiv,si in urma cu 14 ani am lucrat deseori cu fratii Watchowski(creatorii filmului),cind lucram la Marvel Comics ca artist de bd,si am ilustrat multe coperti si scenarii scrise de ei pt. revista lui Clive Barker(un om minunat),"Hellraiser",ce a devenit si o serie de filme.
mai acum 7 luni a fost un articol in "Entertainment weekly" despre Matrix si frati si au publicat o coperta a mea cu Pinhead la Hellraiser.N-a fost rau sa fiu vazut de toata tara ca pictor de coperti.
dar de 7 ani lucrez in advertising pt. cele mai mari agentii din tara si lume si e mai bine ca in bd.
Alt film ce as recomanda este "The master& commander"cu alt favorit al nostru,Russell Crowe,ori multe altele cu el.Si sa NU mai vorbesc de Johnny Depp...avem toate filmele lui in colectie!E un sweet guy!La fel Gary Oldman.
Cam in jurul acestor actori gravitam,dar vedem destule inchiriind de la clubul Blockbuster cind avem timp.
Si ca sa te aiuresc bine acum,avem si o mica dar frumoasa colectie de poze
cu autografe si dedicatii,puse pe pereti la loc de cinste desigur,cu Johnny Depp,Gary Oldman,Christian Bale,Russell Crowe,Pierce Brosnan,si un vechi album....dar o raritate din 1967 al marelui grup Rolling Stones,"Their Satanic Majesties Request",din acel an si...semnat in autografe originale de toti 5 membri,la acea vreme grupul original,deci cu Brian Jones si Bill Wyman!!!
Filmele sint o mare parte din viata mea ca artist si mereu trebuie sa fiu la punct cu ce e nou etc,de multe ori ilustrez reclame in care apar staruri TV ori de film si clientii vor sa vada ceva lookalike.
Desigur ca apreciez filme cu continut si o tema mai dincolo de banalitatea celor de duzina si gen "B",sintem mari fani de ex. al filmelor lui Fassbinder,am citit autobiografia lui.Ori chiar si desigur marii italieni ori francezi,apropo....iar sa-ti dau in cap,...avem o poza cu autograf si dedicatie in original a lui Alain
Delon,mai la 60 anisori dar merita.
Acum,nu prea vedem filme,avind de lucru dar in primul rind sint atitea dezbateri la TV ce vrem sa le vedem cu toti candidatii democrati ori fiecare personal si cred ca-ti dai seama ca sintem democrati si NU-TI imaginezi cit de mult ne dorim sa-l vedem pe Bush afara din casa alba!!!
NU AI IDEE cit a distrus omul asta tara asta in doar 3 ani!!!Aici in USA este stiut ca este unicul presedinte care a distrus tara in acest scurt timp si a "reusit" sa puna la pamint tot ceea ce au facut in istoria tarii ultimii 11 presedinti!!!!
Deci ..le avem si noi pe ale noastre!
In fine,ma bucur ca am scris astea si avut sper o conversatie placuta si din partea ta.ramine sa mai scriu despre filme si altele cindva cind voi avea timp liber.
Pina atunci,All my best to you ,
Ps: Ozzy e un om minunat si f. sufletist.
Sint un MARE FAN al lui inca din 1970 cind era cu Black Sabbath.
Avem la fel o prietenie si corespondenta cu Pete Townshend,alta mare legenda in muzica rock,oare cine n-a ascultat odata in viata grupul "WHO"?
Te-am aiurit destul!

Frate sa ma ierti, dar ma raliez Frumoasei in apararea Abbei. Ei nu au cantat pop, au cantat ABBA. Si cu toate ca nu ajung nici la glezna lui Dylan, au avut si ei farmecul lor.
Si pentru ca tot am ajuns la Dylan, am sa deschid un subiect care a fost mult comentat. Ce parere ai despre felul in care "he sold out to the establishment" (sa vandut)? Cred ca stii la ce ma refer - reclama la Victoria Secret. Faina reclama, n-am ce zice, dar ...
Black Sabath mi-au placut si mie mult. Ei, Iron Maiden si Judas Priest. In liceu ii ascultam mult. Si Accept si Led Zeppelin si Deep Purple, dar mai ales Scorpions (pana prin '89, ca dup'aia s-au cam comercializat). Acum m-am prostit, cand am timp ascult comentarii politice.
Din BS imi placea tare mult (trebuie sa recunosc, motive personale) un cantec care de fapt nu ii reprezinta deloc - "She's gone". La un moment dat mi-am facut o caseta numai cu aceasta melodie repetata intr-una. Eh, ce vrei, ticneli de adolescent indragostit. Acum am femeia, nu-mi mai trebuie melodia. Dar cand se intampla sa o mai aud inca imi umezeste ochii.
Dar sa ne intoarcem la Dylan. Nu ma rabda inima si voi posta un cantec de-al lui care este extraordinar de actual cu toate ca a fost scris prin anii '60. Imi cer iertare ne-cititorilor de engleza, dar nu voi avea tupeul de a atenta o traducere asa cum facea un guitator mentionat de tine mai devreme.
Masters of War
Come you masters of war
You that build all the guns
You that build the death planes
You that build the big bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks
You that never done nothin'
But build to destroy
You play with my world
Like it's your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
And you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther
When the fast bullets fly
Like Judas of old
You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
That runs down my drain
You fasten the triggers
For the others to fire
Then you set back and watch
When the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion
As young people's blood
Flows out of their bodies
And is buried in the mud
You've thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain't worth the blood
That runs in your veins
How much do I know
To talk out of turn
You might say that I'm young
You might say I'm unlearned
But there's one thing I know
Though I'm younger than you
Even Jesus would never
Forgive what you do
Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul
And I hope that you die
And your death'll come soon
I will follow your casket
In the pale afternoon
And I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I'll stand o'er your grave
'Til I'm sure that you're dead
I am only one, but I AM one!

"Rocket engines burning fuel so fast
Up into the night sky they blast,
Through the universe the engines whine
Could it be the end of man and time?
Back on earth the flame of life burns low
Everywhere is misery and woe,
Pollution kills the air,the land and sea,
Man prepares to meet his destiny,Yeah.
Rocket engines burning fuel so fast
Up into the black sky so vast,
Burning metal through the atmosphere,
Earth remains in worry,hate and fear,
With the hateful battles raging on
Rockets flying to the glowing sun,
Through the empires of eternal void
Freedom from the final suicide.
Freedom fighters sent out to the sun
Escape from brainwashed minds and pollution,
Leave the earth to all its sin and hate
Find another world where freedom waits,Yeah.
Past the stars in fields of ancient void
Through the shields of darkness where they find,
Love upon a land, a world unknown
Where the sons of freedom make their home,
Leave the earth to Satan and his slaves,
Leave them to the future in their grave,
Make a home where love is there to stay,
Peace and Happiness in everyday,Yeah"
Si sa nu-mi spuneti ca Ozzy si B.S.au fost sau sunt rai....mereu au spus ceva si un mesaj lumii...sa nu judecam niciodata...the book by its cover,alright?

Trancaneala Aristocrata "2"
At the 1994 annual awards dinner given for Forensic Science, AAFS
President Dr. Don Harper Mills astounded his audience with the
legal complications of a bizarre death.
Here is the story:
On March 23, 1994 the medical examiner viewed the body of Ronald
Opus and concluded that he died from a shotgun wound to the
head. Mr. Opus had jumped from the top of a ten-story building
intending to commit suicide. He left a note to the effect
indicating his despondency.
As he fell past the ninth floor his life was interrupted by a
shotgun blast passing through a window, which killed him
Neither the shooter nor the deceased was aware that a safety net
had been installed just below the eighth floor level to protect
some building workers and that Ronald Opus would not have been
able to complete his suicide the way he had planned.
"Ordinarily," Dr Mills continued, "Someone who sets out to commit
suicide and ultimately succeeds, even though the mechanism might
not be what he intended, is still defined as committing
suicide." That Mr. Opus was shot on the way to certain death,
but probably would not have been successful because of the safety
net, caused the medical examiner to feel that he had a homicide on
In the room on the ninth floor, where the shotgun blast
emanated, was occupied by an elderly man and his wife. They were
arguing vigorously and he was threatening her with a shotgun. The
man was so upset that when he pulled the trigger he completely missed
his wife and the pellets went through the window striking Mr. Opus.
When one intends to kill subject 'A' but kills subject 'B' in
the attempt, one is guilty of the murder of subject 'B'.
When confronted with the murder charge the old man and his wife
were both adamant and both said that they thought the shotgun
was not loaded. The old man said it was a long-standing habit to
threaten his wife with the unloaded shotgun. He had no intention
to murder her.
Therefore the killing of Mr. Opus appeared to be an accident;
that is, assuming the gun had been accidentally loaded.
The continuing investigation turned up a witness who saw the old
couple's son loading the shotgun about six weeks prior to the
It transpired that the old lady had cut off her son's financial
support and the son, knowing the propensity of his father to use
the shotgun threateningly, loaded the gun with the expectation
that his father would shoot his mother.
Since the loader of the gun was aware of this, he was guilty of
the murder even though he didn't actually pull the trigger. The
case now becomes one of murder on the part of the son for the
death of Ronald Opus.
Now comes the exquisite twist.
Further investigation revealed that the son was, in fact, Ronald
Opus. He had become increasingly despondent over the failure of
his attempt to engineer his mother's murder. This led him to
jump off the ten-story building on March 23rd, only to be killed
by a shotgun blast passing through the ninth story window. The son
had actually murdered himself so the medical examiner closed the
case as a suicide.

O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf
New Artist: Ion Zupcu, Works on Paper.
"As a still life photographer you have control over everything," says
Ion Zupcu. "Nothing moves. Take a still life photographer bent on
minimalism, as Zupcu was when he set out to capture the essence of
paper, and you get a series of images that tell you both everything and
nothing about what the photographer was thinking. "People don't have
time to stop and discuss the way they feel about shapes, styles, and
objects they see," he explains. "So my images are a conversation with
myself, a diary of what I see." He chose the edge of paper as his focus,
"to leave the rest of the image a mystery." For these quiet, restrained
images, Zupcu was both sculptor and photographer, creating objects that leave us guessing at the scale (they are mere inches high). And nothing appears to be holding the paper in place--except, perhaps, the will of the photographer.
We hope you enjoy this new work from Ion Zupcu.

Filmul bate viata
a walk to remember - e film american, adolescenti etc, dar nu se termina "tipic american" si, culmea, mai are si niste mesaje de treansmis... :)
mai e si clasicul - pe ariprile vantului
si bineinteles un film cu tom hanks - nu vorbesc de forest gump, si de cast away(naufragiatul) - un film absolout superb; ce as face in situatia personajului principal, cat timp mi-as putea pastra mintea limpede... unele din intrebarile la care am ajuns...
iar la capitolul "de groaza" - ceva ce nu as mai vedea niciodata e tenebre(jeepers creepers - asa cred k se scrie :) ); ideea in sine mi-a dat fiori mult timp... si cica a aparut si o continuare acum... brrrr..

Trancaneala Aristocrata "8"
Three good friends were driving along on the highway one Saturday: a doctor, a teacher, and a lawyer. All of a sudden, a brand-new SUV cut them off. In an attempt to miss the shiny big vehicle, the driver swerved to the left and hit the median. The car flipped several times and all three friends died instantly. They all found themselves in line waiting to get into Heaven. The doctor asked the others, "Hey, what do you all want people to say at your funeral? I want them to say, 'She was a great doctor, and she never let down any of her patients.'" The teacher said, "I want people to remember me as a great educator, so I would want to hear people say, 'He was a wonderful teacher, a great role model for children, and he changed countless lives throughout his career.'" Then the lawyer said, "I'd like people to say, 'Look! He's moving!'"
multe filme.. 90% proaste

Cele mai bune filme
Da.. din pacate in ultima vreme sunt tot mai multe filme proaste. Oricum preferatele mele sunt : A walk to remember, The notebook, The butterfly effect si A beautiful mind. Astea mi-au placut mie in mod deosebit.. au fost mai bine realizare decat toate tampeniile care ruleaza acum la cinema sau care pot fi gasite pe net.
five distinct species of human.
la: 30/03/2006 20:37:31
Oare toţi oamenii de astăzi au origină comună ?
Fragmente din articolul de mai sus, scrie de catre Dr. George Johnson in "On Science".
It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the Out-of-Africa
all along. theory was right
Researchers now recognize
with considerable bickering about the details five distinct species of human.
While the details of this story are still quite controversial among
paleontologists, the emerging consensus is that there have been at least five species of humans, all of them evolving in Africa and four of them migrating out in successive waves to Europe and Africa.
Did our species evolve only in Africa? Some paleontologists do not accept the last stage in this story. They reject the Out-of-Africa theory that Homo sapiens evolved in Africa then migrated out, replacing earlier
human species as it spread out over the face of the globe. Instead, they put forth a multi-regional proposal, sometimes called the Regional
Continuity Theory. This theory proposes a single very early migration out of Africa to Europe and Asia, followed by two million years of evolution in place. African, European, and Asian lineages evolved separately adapting to local conditions, yet all were linked evolutionarily by occasional migration. While distinct human races developed, the exchange
of genes promoted by occasional migrants prevented major genetic differences from persisting, so no race was able to become a separate species.
Who is right? One obvious way to sort out this problem without resorting to statistical shenanigans is to find enough genetic variation to make clear comparisons, and then ask if humans in Africa, Europe, and Asia have the same amount of it. Species accumulate genetic mutations over time, and if multi-regionalism is right, then humans in the three regions should have about the same amount.
On the other hand, if our species originated
only in Africa, and migrated out to Europe and Asia later, then you would expect that many more genetic mutations would have accumulated in Africa
for our species would have been there much longer
This presents a significant problem in studying human evolution, as human species have evolved within the last two million years, too short a time to accumulate many gene differences
A clear test of the multiregional proposal is possible using such highly variable portions of chromosomal DNA, as they provide a large number of
"markers" to compare
......... analyzing two highly variable segments on chromosome 12. Sixteen hundred individuals were examined in 42 populations.
A total of 24 different versions of the two segments were found, each a different but related gene sequence. Fully 21 of them were present in African populations, while 3 were found in Europeans, and only 2 in Asians and in Americans.
Since DNA accumulates mutations over time, the oldest populations of
humans should show the greatest number of genetic differences,
the European and Asian humans haven't been around nearly as long as African ones.

The Blonde Cowboy
The Sheriff in a small town walks out into the street and sees a blonde cowboy coming down the walk with nothing on but his cowboy hat, gun and his boots. So he arrests him for indecent exposure.
As he is locking the cowboy up, the sheriff asked, "Why in the world are walking around like this?"
"Well, it's like this, Sheriff," the cowboy explained. "I was in the bar down the road and this pretty little redhead asks me to out to her motor home with her. So I did. We do inside and she pulls off her top and asks me to pull off my shirt ... so I did. Then she pull off her skirt and asks me to pull of my pants, so I did. Then she pulls off her panties and asks me to pull off my shorts ... so I did.
"The she gets on the bed and looks at me kind of sexy and says, 'Now, go to town, Cowboy...!'
And here I am."
