ivy - uite si un check pufos
la: 28/10/2004 16:40:10
7 albusuri le bati bine cu 2 cani de zahar pina iese spuma ca la bezea. apoi adaugi peste 7 linguri de ulei si amesteci incet, apoi 7 galbenusuri unu cate unu, apoi 2 cani de faina si la sfarsit 1 praf de copt stins in zeama de lamaie.
tapetezi cu ulei si faina doua tavi mari de cozonac din alea lungi. si pui aproape toata compozitia. opresti un pic care sa o amesteci cu cacao si sa o pui peste. si cu lingurita amesteci asa prin forma, ca sa se imbine si sa iasa formele alea ciudate de cacao cand se coace checkul.
se coace la mijlocul cuptorului la foc potrivit.
incerci cu un pai daca s-a copt.daca nu ramine aluat pe pai atunci e copt.cind il scoti din tava, asa fierbinte, il pudrezi cu zahar pudra.
sper sa iti placa . mie imi place foarte mult.
Sa nu uitam de cei mai tristi ca noi!

Florin Firimita despre experienta emigrarii si "Arta de a pleca"
Buna intrebare! De fapt am avut o serie de slujbe. Am muncit intr-o fabrica, am spalat vase, etc. Nu am lucrat intr-un supermarket, dupa
cum spune presa. Am lucrat la un magazin general, unde am fost
casier, am vindut televizoare. La inceput mi-a fost rusine de toate
slujbele pe care le-am avut, dar mi-am dat seama ca rusinea era a
mea si numai a mea. Mentalitatea romaneasca cu care am venit, ca munca e impartita in munca de jos si cariera....s-a dizolvat repede aici. Muncesti, iti iei checkul la banca, iti platesti datoriile. Nu e nici o rusine in asta. Nu spun ca societatate americana nu e
stratificata (desi idea asta este una dintre iluziile initiale), dar
aici munca e onorata, chiar pina la punctul ca nu mai stim cum sa ne
petrecem timpul liber (acum vorbeste americanul din mine).
Totul a fost atit de nou, totul atit de proaspat, ca m-am simtit
"acasa" imediat. Desi am avut sentimente ambivalente despre noua mea
tara, m-am renascut din momentul in care am aterizat in New York.
Naivitate? Bineinteles! Dar in acel moment naivitatea mi-a folosit ca
un zid de aparare.
Am pictat din primele saptamini, cu o foame pa care n-o mai simtisem
de mult. In Romania, daca n-aveai pile, de-abia gaseai materiale. La
un moment dat, prin anii 80, am folosit pasta de dinti pentru ca nu
puteam gasi albul de titan in magazinele Fondului Plastic. La
institut se intra in functie de ce rude aveai, cu noroc, sau (ca
fata) cu cine te culcai. In liceu stiam dinainte cine va intra la
"Grigorescu." Asta nu lasa prea mult loc pentru cei saraci, ca mine,
care se zbateau sa deseneze, de bine, de rau, cu incapatinare si
speranta. Au fost si exceptii, bineinteles, citiva dintre fostii mei colegi sint personalitati importante ale artei contemporane romanesti. Sa ajunga unde sint astazi, le-au trebuit doze triple de curaj si perseverenta.
Am pictat multe peisaje romanesti, multe bazate pe vederile pe care
le-am luat din tara, multe pictate din memorie. Mai am citeva zeci de
lucrari de acum zece, doisprezece ani, si acum regret ca am vindut
majoritatea lor. Sentimentale? Poate, dar au fost sincere, nascute
din dorul de tara.
Lucram 8 ore pe zi ca vinzator, apoi ma duceam acasa, intr-un
apartament ieftin, unde jumatate de chirie era platita din ajutorul
HUD american (un ajutor financial pentru emigranti sau cei cu salariu sub limita saraciei) si pictam pina la miezul noptii. Cred ca pictura, ca si scrisul, m-au aparat de singuratate.
Nu ca aveam de o validare materiala a artei mele, dar cind mi-am vindut prima pinza cu trei sute de dolari in 1990, nu pot ascunde ca m-am simtit foarte, foarte mindru.
Apoi m-am inscris la facultate, desi de-abia incepusem sa "ghicesc"
limba. A fost un drum greu, incet, singuratic, frumos, care m-a
invatat despre umilinta, prietenie, tradare, natura umana in general.
Am primit burse in primii doi ani, si apoi am inceput sa-mi platesc
studiile. E o evolutie similara cu pata de grasime: incet, dar sigur.
Spun "a fost," dar drumul nu s-a terminat inca.
Cred ca n-am avut un "stil" pina prin 1997. Pina atunci totul a fost
cautare. Uneori ai idei pe care nu le poti aplica pentru ca nu stii
cum. Alteori, esti bun din punct de vedere tehnic, dar ideile sint
sarace. Miracolul se intimpla cind ideile iti intilnesc posibilitatile tehnicile.
Am citit si citesc enorm. Luam autobuzul la New York ca sa vad toate
expozitiile pe care le puteam vedea. Sint interesat in orice. Cind am
inceput sa scriu in engleza, schitele au inceput sa se amestece cu
fragmente de povestiri, frinturi de linii sa se interfereze cu
frinturi de idei. Am inceput sa incorporez text in picturile mele. La
inceput, mai mult ca grafica, frumusetea scrisului de mina amestecata
cu frumustetea unei culori, sau cu gesturalitatea unei linii. Astazi
colectionez scrisori vechi, fotografii anonime, care isi gasesc o
noua viata in lucrarile mele.
Problema cu cautarea unui stil este dificila: incerci sa pictezi ca
maestrii pe care-i admiri (bineinteles ca asta nu e o solutie), iti
dai seama ca ceea ce faci sint copii dupa artistii pe care-i admiri.
Cred ca trebuie sa uiti aproape tot ceea ce ai invatat ca sa ajungi
la un stil personal. E o vocatie destul de trista: pianistul da
concerte, e definit de o audienta, actorul deasemenea. Artistul
vizual e "redus" la micimea monastica a atelierului. John Cage
vorbeste foarte frumos despre starea asta, cind spune: "Cind lucrezi,
toti sint in atelierul tau: trecutul, prietenii, lumea artistica, si
mai mult decit orice, toate ideile tale. Toti sint acolo. Dar in timp
ce continui sa pictezi, ei incep sa plece, unul cite unul, si esti
lasat singur. Apoi, daca esti norocos, chiar si tu insuti pleci."
O mare diferenta pentru mine a facut-o descoperirea artei americane,
pe care am detestat-o sau ridiculizat-o in Romania, pentru ca n-am
stiut nimic despre ea. Dupa citiva ani, am inceput sa descopar
vitalitatea ei nemaipomenita. Sint norocos ca am prieteni artisti aici care sint de 100 de ori mai buni decit mine (nu in sensul competitiei, arta n-are de-a face cu sportul), dar in sensul ca sint unici, in sensul in care arta lor e ca o continua lectie pentru mine.
Sint flamind de a invata. Prietenii mei mi-a dat curajul de a
experimenta, de a incerca lucruri noi, indiferent de opinia celor din
Acum, ca profesor, pot sa spun ca invat multe si de la studentii mei.
Invat ceva in fiecare zi. E o bucurie aproape copilareasca de a fi in
atelier si a "crea" ceva. Arta e un mod de a te minuna zilnic, si in acelasi timp, dupa cum bine zice Twyla Tharp, un mod de a zice: multumesc.
Spun, mai in gluma, mai in serios, ca cea mai buna lucrare a mea este
lucrarea pe care n-am pictat-o inca. Cea mai reusita expozitie pe
care am tocmai avut-o aici, in octombrie, a fost culminarea acestor cautari. Dupa 14 ani de la plecare pot sa spun ca nu imi este
rusine de arta mea. Cred ca am inceput sa dezvolt un limbaj care e al
meu si numai al meu.

in al doilea rand--cu riscul de a ma lungi--remediul unei programe stufoase este o minte limpede. cu toate ca incep sa ma simt o specie pe cale de disparitie, nu pot sa cred ca trebuie sa fi Balanta pentru a-ti gasi echilibru intre comentarii la romana si ecuatii la matematica (si, imi sopteste fratiorul, algoritme la informatica).TIP OF THE DAY: exista invatat fara tocit: exista "skim the text"--in cazul de fata "skim the syllabus". un adolescent rebel ar trebui sa stie sa nu inghita informatia cu polonicul, sa o purice, sa scoata surplusul de grasime si voila! SKIMMED FOOD FOR THOUGHT! daca stau sa ma gandesc bine, incalceala de dezincalcit creste populatia de celule cenusii, nu o imbuiba pana la BUM-ul proverbial cu mure-n gura!

Florin Firimita despre experienta emigrarii si "Arta de a pleca"
Intrebarea daca lucrarile dumneavoastra vor fi cit de cit "vizibile" pe piata americana...foarte greu de raspuns. In primul rind: veti pleca in SUA pentru: 1.studii? 2.ca emigrant? 3.ca turist? In al doilea rind, se pare ca aveti dedicatia, si sper timpul si banii ca sa gasiti o fereastra in piata americana. Banii nu va vor cumpara un loc pe piata americana, pentru ca, in cele din urma, calitatea artei vorbeste de la sine, dar va trebui sa munciti foarte mult, de la timbre, pina la diapozitive. In Statele Unite traiesc o multime de artisti. Doar in New York City, de exemplu, locuiesc o suta de mii de artisti plastici. Zeci de mii de absolventi ale facultatilor de arte inunda piata americana in fiecare an. In 2001, artistii reprezentau aproape 2 la suta din forta de munca americana, cu vreo 2 milioane si jumatate de americani care declara ca sint "artisti." Doar 3 la suta dintre acesti artisti traiesc din vinzarea operelor de arta.
Ce v-as sfatui:
1. In ce fel credeti ca arta dumneavoastra e unica? Daca descoperiti asta, va va fi mai usor sa va explorati posibilitatile. Nu trimiteti portofolii peste tot. Analizati piata, tipul de galerie care v-ar putea reprezenta. Ceea ce e popular in New York nu se vinde in California. Scena artistica din Los Angeles e foarte diferita de cea din Texas. Una dintre greselile pe care le-am facut aici a fost acea de a trimite diapozitive la toate galeriile pe care le-am putut gasi in listele revistelor de arta de aici, fara sa ma interesez in ceea ce erau specializati. Banuiesc ca multe dintre portofoliile pe care le-am trimis au ajuns in cosul de gunoi foarte repede. Ar fi bine sa aveti pe cineva aici, in USA, care va poate ghida prin labirintul galeriilor si sistemului legal.
2. Revizuiti website-ul. Imaginile sint bune, prezentarea interesanta, dar sint multe greseli gramaticale in text, pe care cineva cu o foarte buna cunoastere a limbii engleze (americane) si romane le poate rectifica usor. Directorii de galerii primesc sute de portofolii in fiecare zi. Nu se uita la nimic care nu este aproape perfect. Editorii de reviste procedeaza la fel. Am avut o povestire care a stat timp de doi ani si jumatate pe biroul editoarei unei mari reviste din New York. Dupa doi ani si jumatate, povestirea a fost publicata, si chiar am primit un check substantial. Mai tirziu, editoarea mi-a spus ca ei citesc tot ce primesc, ceea ce inseamna aproape o mie de manuscrise pe saptamina! Invatati sa aveti rabdare de broasca testoasa si piele de rinocer.
3. Aveti rabdare si tineti evidenta a tuturor contactelor pe care le faceti.
4. Sper ca aveti un portofoliu solid, si multe seturi de diapozitive. De cele mai multe ori, nu le ve-ti mai vedea inapoi, deci pregatiti-va sa cheltuiti (iarasi) bani.
5. Nu intrati in nici un contract legal fara sa va sfatuiti cu un avocat familiar cu problemele de arta.
6. Nu platiti NICIODATA ca sa expuneti. Multe galerii (prestigioase sau nu), cer mii de dolari in avans pentru expozitii. Inainte de a incerca sa trimiteti lucrari galeriilor de aici, expuneti in locuri mai putin prestigioase (restaurante, librarii, etc).
6. Nu uitati ca nimeni nu va asteapta cu flori, nimeni nu este gata sa va "descopere."
Cu putin noroc, si multa munca.....cred ca va ve-ti putea face arta "visibila."

Banc: doi mosi pe o banca...
One day, in line at the cafeteria, Bob says to Stanley behind him, "My elbow hurts like hell. I guess I better see a doctor."
"Listen, you don't have to spend that kind of money," Stan replies "There's a diagnostic computer down at Wal-Mart. Just give it a urine sample and the computer'll tell you what's wrong and what to do about it. It takes ten seconds and costs ten dollars...a lot cheaper than a doctor."
So Bob deposits a urine sample in a small jar and takes it to Wal-Mart. He
deposits ten dollars, and the computer lights up and asks for the urine sample. He pours the sample into the slot and waits. Ten seconds later, the computer ejects a printout:
"You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will improve in two weeks."
That evening while thinking how amazing this new technology was, Jack began wondering if the computer could be fooled. He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and masturbated into the mixture for good measure.
Bob hurries back to Wal-Mart, eager to check the results. He deposits ten dollars, pours in his concoction, and waits.
The computer prints the following:
1. Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener.
2. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with anti-fungal shampoo.
3. Your daughter has a cocaine habit. Get her into rehab...
4. Your wife is pregnant. Twins. They aren't yours. Get a lawyer.
5. If you don't stop playing with yourself, your elbow will never get better.
And, as always, thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.

Cosmetologie... dar nu pentru trolli..
nu stiam si-ti multumesc de informatie. inca nu am riduri da' banuiesc ca n-are ce sa faca rau daca o aplic chiar si in absenta ridurilor. apropos, poti sa-mi dai reteta pentru ingrijirea parului cu drojdie (parca despre asa ceva aminteai intr-un mesaj mai vechi) ca poate ma enervez si-l tund hehehe (sotul nu cred c-ar fi foarte incantat de idee insa....)
poate in 2-3 ani sa incerc figura cu gardul electric, deocamdata e prea complicat, cei de la care am cumparat casa n-au prea avut grija de curte asa ca deocamdata ne chinuim s-o scoatem la lumina si sa aiba cat-de-cat un aspect decent
ce ma impiedica sa vizitez egiptul? ce altceva decat banii... sau mai bine zis lipsa lor lol. avem tot ce ne trebuie si nu ne lipseste nimic esential, ba ne putem permite si sa ne auto-rasfatam din cand in cand dar mai dureaza pana sa putem face cheltuieli majore extra-bugetare. rata la casa + impozit + asigurare ne costa dublu fata de cat e costa chiria, si-am avut cheltuieli neprevazute dupa ce am cumparat casa (o gramada de chestii au trebuit inlocuite care nu faceau parte din plan, e mare diferenta sa vezi casa mobilata si locuita inainte s-o cumperi, si s-o vezi goala dupa ce a devenit a ta). de asta nici prin romania ca sa-mi vad parintii nu ajung prea des
o sa tin minte recomandarile privind ceea ce-ar fi de vazut mai intai si cu prima ocazie ma voi arunca si-n acea parte de lume

Ozzy vs LMC
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 ?

1974 J. R. BAKER Race xiv. 234 From the traditional religious point of view, a
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.

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

Jews use goy in a pejorative sense. 1970 R. LOWELL Notebk. 69 This embankment,
jewed-No, yankeed-by the highways down to a grassy lip. 1971 R. THOMAS Backup
Men xxi. 184, I say how much and he says this much and I say it's not enough
so we jew around with each other until we make a price. 1972 Harper's Mag. May
83 Jew the fruitman down for his last Christmas tree. 1972 New Society 11 May
301/1, I got jewed down..over the cheap offer.

Welcome back to PDNOnline. Here's what you'll find in today's update.
- We talk to the winner of this year's Fujifilm Young Reporter Award about his recent work in Iraq.
- The aftermath of the chapter 11 bankruptcy of 5th and Sunset involves lots of legal wranglings, some angry creditors, a lot of rumors, speculation and accusations. PDNOnline wades into the mess.
- People on the Move: Lots of movement. We have the lowdown on who's doing the hiring at three new start-up magazines, plus a new art director at Premiere, another new hire at New York, a new staff photographer added at Getty, changes at Blur Photo, and an update on what may be New York's new (mini) Photo District. ($ premium for subscribers only.)
- Edit news: Who's shooting for the new LA-based magazine Fugue; a custom publishing venture between Sports Illustrated and a liquor company; Hearst announces its own shopping magazine; how Jane's redesign looks; Dennis Publishing kills one of its title; and more. ($ premium for subscribers only.)
- Michelle McNally talks --and listens--about changes to The New York Times photo policies.
- You've seen the portrait of the VII photographers that's appearing in a national ad campaign everywhere.
Notice anything odd?
- Who's Shooting What: Danielle Levitt and Brian Hagiwara shoot 'tween idols; Carmichael Lynch's two new ad campaigns; Olaf Veltman is still busy; who's shooting BP ads for O&M; who's shooting Cool Whip for Foote Cone & Belding; who's shooting for Kaiser Permanente; who ThinkDesign hired for a new annual report; some of Mark Seliger's recent ad work involves underwear and perfume; and more tidbits.

Check out the winners of wedding photography competition. All the selected images from the contest, including the winners' contact information, is now online in a gallery sponsored by Fujifilm and produced in cooperation with Elegant Bride magazine.
We'll be back next week with some information on that thorny legal topic: Model releases. To accompany our story in the August PDN about how model releases can and can't help protect you against legal action, we have an online feature with actual model release language, and some advice from a stock agency lawyer about how to word your releases.

Un nou forum: "Bancuri, glume, poante..."
Sper ca nimeni sa nu se supere ca e in engleza.
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?
