Be Careful What You Ask For...



A young boy came home from playing and went up to his mother, saying, "Mommy, I was at the playground and I saw Daddy's car go into the Woods with Aunt Jane. I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss. Then he helped her take off her shirt. Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane ... "



At this point, the boy's mother cut him off and said, "Johnny, this is such an interesting story, suppose you save the rest of it for suppertime. I want to see the look on Daddy's face when you tell it tonight!"



At the dinner table, she asked little Johnny to tell his story.


"I was at the playground and I saw Daddy's car go into the woods with Aunt Jane," began Johnny. "I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, then he helped her take off her shirt. Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane and Daddy started doing the same thing that Mommy and Uncle Bill used to do when Daddy was in the Army."

SABBATH BLOODY SABBATH

"You've seen life through distorted eyes
You Know you have to learn
The execution of your mind
You really had to turn
The race is run the book is read
The end begins to show
The truth is out,the lies are old
But you don't want to know

Nobody will ever let you know
When you ask the reasons why
They just tell you that you're on your own
Fill your head all full of lies.

The people who heve crippled you
You want to see them burn
The gates of life have closed on you
And there's just no return
You're wishing that the hands of doom
Could take your mind away
And you don't care if you don't see again
The light of day.

Nobody will ever let you know
When you ask the reason why
They just tell you that you're on your own
Fill your head all full of lies

Where can you run to?
What more can you do?
No more tomorrow
Life is killing you
Dreams turn to nightmares
Heaven turns to hell
Burned out confusion
Nothing more to tell

Everything around you
What's it coming to
God knows as your dognose
Bog blast all of you
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Nothing more to do
Living just for dying
Dying just for you.

My dear,

Am scris in prostie un text si ....l-am facut...pierdut,mi-am dat mii de palme.....
De alaltaieri de cand am un nou keyboard,nu-s familiar cu el si fac greseli,adica apas gresit pe taste...am stat sa-ti scriu 2 ore.....pierdute caci s-a dus dracului textul meu....si acum poate-s putin mahmur,dar incerc iar sa ma las de baut....
Poate in final e vina mea....e 4 iulie....Independence day????You must be kidding!!!!
Poate cu 200 ani in urma????Cand insemna ceva????
In fine,stii CUM sarbatoresc aceasta zi....pt. cei cu capul pe umeri?
Beau pt. veteranii morti for NOTHING,in Vietnam,si pt. cei din Irak,pt. indienii mei,si negrii mei,si evreii mei si copii anilor pierduti in neant,o generatie de sacrificiu inutil....WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE GRAVE!!!!!

Si pt. ca azi e asa....mare sarbatoare.....am sa-ti scriu un cantec f. faimos in lume
e impotriva razboiului,apartine unor ani ce putini i-au trait si cunoscut,dar vor trai si sper ca 1 minut,vei uita de orice si vei gandi la niste suflete pt. care ar fi de trait o lacrima pe obraz.....gandeste-te la inceputul unui film COLOSAL....APPOCALIPSE NOW...si auzi aceste cuvinte si muzica in minte si vezi imagini de moarte care NU ar fi trebuit sa existe DELOC.........

"This is the end,beautiful friend
This is the end,my only friend
The end of our elaborate plans
The end of everything that stands
The end...

No safety or surprise
The end
I'll never look into your eyes again....

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free?
Desperately in need of some stranger's hand,
In a desperate land????

Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
And all the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain
There's danger on the edge of town
Ride the king's highway,
Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride the highway West,baby

Ride the snake
Ride the snake
To the lake
To the lake...

The ancient lake,baby
The snake is long
Seven miles
Ride the snake...

He's old
And his skin is cold
The West is the best
The West is the best,
Get here and we'll do the rest...

The blue bus is calling us
The blue bus is calling us
Driver,where are you taking us????

The killer awoke before dawn
He put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall...

He went into the room where his sister lived
And then he paid a visit to his brother
And then he walked on down the hall
And he came to a door
And he looked inside,
Father?
Yes,son?
I want to kill you,
Mother,I want to fuck you....

Come on baby,take a chance with us
Come on baby,take a chance with us
Come on baby,take a chance with us...
And meet me at the end of the blue bus

This is the end,beautiful friend
This is the end,my only friend

It hurts to set you free
But you'll never follw me

The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die

This is the end....

THE DOORS are:

Jim Morrison-vocals+lyrics(great poetry)
Ray Manzarek-keyboards

Omulica,omulet,

Degustibus non discutandum,right?Iti place ce vrei,opiniile mele sunt ale mele,
Abba,fetele pe atunci okay si tare mult mi-as fi dorit sa la f...t,parca as fi unicul!Dar ca de obicei,pt. ca am "tupeul"de a scrie ce scriu mereu si direct si fara ascunzisuri si dark secrets,trebuie sa-mi asum si rolul de sac de box pt. destui....ati face coada sa ma luati la pumni.

Scorpions nu i-am agreat,i-am vazut totusi la un imens concert pe Giants Stadium in N.J.care a durat 9 ore,multe grupuri si era prin 1987-88 si cei care au deschis concertul(monsters of rock)au fost...Metallica,pe atunci abia cunoscuti,apoi Scorps,Dokken,altii(nu-mi aduc aminte,eram beat mort si drogat in tampenie)si au incheiat grupul super star Van Hallen(nu cu Diamond Dave ci cu Sammy Haggar).

Pe gremuri,Van Hallen deschideau concerte la Black Sabbath,la fel AC/DC.
Si pt. ca-mi adusesi aminte de "she's gone"si mie mi-a placut tare mult balada asta de pe Technical Ecstazy(album din 1976)si pt. ca sunt rau si ca stiu acum ca poate plangeai ascultand cantecul,te arunc iar in trecut...:

"I've been a long long time,awaitin'for you
I didn't want to see you go,oh no no,
And now it's hurting so much,what can I do?
I wanted you to be my wife.

The days are passing slowly since you've gone
Your memories are all I have,yes I have
I sit here waiting but you'll never show
Without you I can't carry on,ooh my baby...

You said you'll always love me,all of my life
And then you said your last good bye,yeah good bye
Why the sudden changes,why all of the lies?
I should have seen it in your eyes...

The endless hours of heartache,awaitin'for you
My summer love has turned to rain,ohh the pain..
The silent emptiness of one sided love
My life means nothing now you've gone,ohh my baby..."

Pentru cei care citesc Engleza - de LMC la: 02/09/2004 01:20:55
(la: Cum sa devii un liberal de nota 10!)
Dupa cum multi dintre voi stiti saptamina asta se desfasoara conventia partidului Republican. Aseara Arnold Schwarzenegger a vorbit, iar astazi toate programele de radio si televizor si toate ziarele sau concentrat asupra speech-ului lui Arnold. Cei care doresc sa afle ce a spus mai jos puteti citi speech-ul lui. Tot aici puteti afla cine sint Republicanii si care este platforma partidului Republican. Citire placuta.

****************************************

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

Thank you.

What a greeting! This is like winning an Oscar! ...As if I would know!

Speaking of acting, one of my movies was called "True Lies." It's what the Democrats should have called their convention.

My fellow Americans, this is an amazing moment for me. To think that a once-scrawny boy from Austria could grow up to become Governor of California and stand in Madison Square Garden to speak on behalf of the President of the United States that is an immigrant's dream. It is the American dream.

I was born in Europe ...and I've traveled all over the world. I can tell you that there is no place, no country, more compassionate more generous more accepting and more welcoming than the United States of America.

As long as I live, I will never forget that day 21 years ago when I raised my hand and took the oath of citizenship.

Do you know how proud I was? I was so proud that I walked around with an American flag around my shoulders all day long.

Tonight, I want to talk about why I'm even more proud to be an American -why I'm proud to be a Republican and why I believe this country is in good hands.

When I was a boy, the Soviets occupied part of Austria. I saw their tanks in the streets .I saw communism with my own eyes. I remember the fear we had when we had to cross into the Soviet sector. Growing up, we were told, "Don't look the soldiers in the eye. Look straight ahead." It was a common belief that Soviet soldiers could take a man out of his own car and ship him off to the Soviet Union as slave labor.

My family didn't have a car -- but one day we were in my uncle's car. It was near dark as we came to a Soviet checkpoint. I was a little boy, I wasn't an action hero back then, and I remember how scared I was that the soldiers would pull my father or my uncle out of the car, and I'd never see him again. My family and so many others lived in fear of the Soviet boot. Today, the world no longer fears the Soviet Union and it is because of the United States of America!

As a kid I saw the socialist country that Austria became after the Soviets left. I love Austria and I love the Austrian people - but I always knew America was the place for me.

In school, when the teacher would talk about America, I would daydream about coming here. I would sit for hours watching American movies transfixed by my heroes like John Wayne. Everything about America seemed so big to me so open, so possible.

I finally arrived here in 1968.I had empty pockets, but I was full of dreams. The presidential campaign was in full swing. I remember watching the Nixon and Humphrey presidential race on TV. A friend who spoke German and English, translated for me. I heard Humphrey saying things that sounded like socialism which is what I had just left. But then I heard Nixon speak. He was talking about free enterprise, getting government off your back, lowering taxes, and strengthening the military. Listening to Nixon speak sounded more like a breath of fresh air.

I said to my friend, "What party is he?" My friend said, "He's a Republican." I said, "Then I am a Republican!" And I've been a Republican ever since! And trust me, in my wife's family, that's no small achievement! I'm proud to belong to the party of Abraham Lincoln, the party of Teddy Roosevelt, the party of Ronald Reagan and the party of George W. Bush.

To my fellow immigrants listening tonight, I want you to know how welcome you are in this party. We Republicans admire your ambition. We encourage your dreams. We believe in your future. One thing I learned about America is that if you work hard and play by the rules, this country is truly open to you. You can achieve anything.

Everything I have my career my success my family I owe to America. In this country, it doesn't make any difference where you were born. It doesn't make any difference who your parents were. It doesn't make any difference if, like me, you couldn't even speak English until you were in your twenties.

America gave me opportunities, and my immigrant dreams came true. I want other people to get the same chances I did, the same opportunities. And I believe they can. That's why I believe in this country, that's why I believe in this party and that's why I believe in this President.

Now, many of you out there tonight are "Republican" like me in your hearts and in your beliefs. Maybe you're from Guatemala. Maybe you're from the Philippines. Maybe Europe or the Ivory Coast. Maybe you live in Ohio Pennsylvania or New Mexico. And maybe just maybe you don't agree with this party on every single issue. I say to you tonight I believe that's not only okay that's what's great about this country. Here

we can respectfully disagree and still be patriotic still be American and still be good Republicans

My fellow immigrants, my fellow Americans how do you know if you are a Republican? I'll tell you how.

If you believe that government should be accountable to the people, not the people to the government...then you are a Republican! If you believe a person should be treated as an individual, not as a member of an interest group... then you are a Republican! If you believe your family knows how to spend your money better than the government does... then you are a Republican! If you believe our educational system should be held accountable for the progress of our children ... then you are a Republican! If you believe this country, not the United Nations, is the best hope of democracy in the world ... then you are a Republican! And, ladies and gentlemen ...if you believe we must be fierce and relentless and terminate terrorism ... then you are a Republican!

There is another way you can tell you're a Republican. You have faith in free enterprise, faith in the resourcefulness of the American people ...and faith in the U.S. economy. To those critics who are so pessimistic about our economy, I say: Don't be economic girlie men!

The U.S. economy remains the envy of the world. We have the highest economic growth of any of the world's major industrialized nations. Don't you remember the pessimism of twenty years ago when the critics said Japan and Germany were overtaking the U.S.? Ridiculous!

Now they say India and China are overtaking us. Don't you believe it! We may hit a few BUMPS -- but America always moves ahead! That's what Americans do!

We move prosperity ahead. We move freedom ahead. We move people ahead. Under President Bush, and Vice President Cheney, America's economy is moving ahead in spite of a recession they inherited and in spite of the attack on our homeland.

Now, the other party says there are two Americas. Don't believe that either. I've visited our troops in Iraq, Kuwait, Bosnia, Germany, and all over the world. I've visited our troops in California, where they train before they go overseas. And I've visited our military hospitals. And I can tell you this: Our young men and women in uniform do not believe there are two Americas!

They believe we are one America and they are fighting for it! We are one America - and President Bush is defending it with all his heart and soul!

That's what I admire most about the President. He's a man of perseverance.

He's a man of inner strength. He is a leader who doesn't flinch, doesn't waiver, does not back down. My fellow Americans, make no mistake about it terrorism is more insidious than communism, because it yearns to destroy not just the individual but the entire international order.

The President didn't go into Iraq because the polls told him it was popular. As a matter of fact, the polls said just the opposite. But leadership isn't about polls. It's about making decisions you think are right and then standing behind those decisions. That's why America is safer with George W. Bush as President.

He knows you don't reason with terrorists. You defeat them. He knows you can't reason with people blinded by hate. They hate the power of the individual. They hate the progress of women. They hate the religious freedom of others. They hate the liberating breeze of democracy. But, ladies and gentlemen, their hate is no match for America's decency.

We're the America that sends out Peace Corps volunteers to teach village children.

We're the America that sends out missionaries and doctors to raise up the poor and the sick. We're the America that gives more than any other country, to fight AIDS in Africa and the developing world. And we're the America that fights not for imperialism but for human rights and democracy.

You know, When the Germans brought down the Berlin Wall America's determination helped wield the sledgehammers. When that lone, young Chinese man stood in front of those tanks in Tiananmen Square America's hopes stood with him. And when

Nelson Mandela smiled in election victory after all those years in prison America celebrated, too.

We are still the lamp lighting the world especially for those who struggle. No matter in what labor camp they slave no matter in what injustice they're trapped -- they hear our call ... they see our light ... and they feel the pull of our freedom. They come here as I did because they believe. They believe in US.

They come because their hearts say to them, as mine did, "If only I can get to America." Someone once wrote -"There are those who say that freedom is nothing but a dream." They are right. It's the American dream.

No matter the nationality, no matter the religion, no matter the ethnic background, America brings out the best in people. And as Governor of the great state of California -- I see the best in Americans every day ... our police, our firefighters our nurses, doctors and teachers our parents.

And what about the extraordinary men and women who have volunteered to fight for the United States of America! I have such great respect for them and their heroic families.

Let me tell you about the sacrifice and commitment I've seen firsthand. In one of the military hospitals I visited, I met a young guy who was in bad shape. He'd lost a leg had a hole in his stomach ... his shoulder had been shot through.

I could tell there was no way he could ever return to combat. But when I asked him, "When do you think you'll get out of the hospital?" He said, "Sir, in three weeks." And do you know what he said to me then? He said he was going to get a new leg ... and get some therapy ... and then he was going back to Iraq to serve alongside his buddies! He grinned at me and said, "Arnold ... I'll be back!"

Ladies and gentlemen, America is back! back from the attack on our homeland- back from the attack on our economy back from the attack on our way of life. We're back because of the perseverance, character and leadership of the 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush.

My fellow Americans ...I want you to know that I believe with all my heart that America remains "the great idea" that inspires the world. It's a privilege to be born here. It's an honor to become a citizen here. It's a gift to raise your family here to vote here and to live here.

Our president George W. Bush has worked hard to protect and preserve the American dream for all of us. That's why I say ... send - him - back to Washington for four more years!

Thank you, America -- and God bless you all!

ok... ar trebui sa-ti inchipui, da' pana atunci hai sa vedem daca cineva iti raspunde la intrebare.

pentru mine chestia cu fundul paros e ca prima din sirul (a se citi "shir" dupa definitia data de tine) de "insulte" de mai jos (se vede ca iar imi curat computerul)

Roses are red, violets are blue, I once thought I was ugly, until I saw you!

Just because you have one doesn't mean you have to act like one!

A man's got to do what a man's got to do. A woman must do what he can't.

Men's brains are like the prison system - not enough cells.

Stupidity does not qualify as a handicap, park elsewhere!

You have a right to your opinions. I just don't want to hear them.

You're breath' so stinky I don't know whether I should give you a breath mint or toiletpaper!

If you can't live without me, why aren't you dead already?

You'd make a lovely corpse!

I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception.

Why do you sit there looking like an envelope without any address on it?

Did you eat a brain tumor for breakfast?

You love nature in spite of what it did to you?

I want to reach your mind - where is it currently located?

I wish I'd known you when you were alive.

If you ever had a bright idea, it would be beginner's luck!

What's on your mind? If you'll forgive the overstatement.

When you go to the mind reader, do you get half price?

I look into your eyes and get the feeling someone else is driving.

You're a mouse studying to be a rat.

Don't look now, but there's one too many in this room and I think it's you.

Every time I'm next to you, I get a fierce desire to be alone.

I can't believe that out of 100,000 sperm, you were the quickest!

If you ever become a mother, can I have one of the puppies?

There's nothing wrong with you that reincarnation won't cure.

Why don't you bore a hole in yourself and let the sap run out?

You're a good example of why some animals eat their young.

A Dacian's Prayer - de DESTIN la: 18/09/2004 20:34:15
(la: SUFLETUL ESTE NEMURITOR)
Am incercat sa traduc in limba engleza poezia lui Eminescu,"Rugaciunea unui dac" la solicitarea unor amici si prieteni americani.

Rog a se interveni in ajutor daca traducerea este greoaie sau poate fi imbunatatita.

A Dacian's Prayer

When death did not exist, nor yet eternity,
Before the seed of life had first set living free,
When yesterday was nothing, and time had not begun,
And one included all things, and all was less than one,
When sun and moon and sky, the stars, the spinning earth
Were still part of the things that had not come to birth,
And You quite lonely stood... I ask myself with awe,
Who is this mighty God we bow ourselves before.

Ere yet the Gods existed already He was God
And out of endless water with fire the lightning shed;
He gave the Gods their reason, and joy to earth did bring,
He brought to man forgiveness, and set salvation's spring
Lift up your hearts in worship, a song of praise enfreeing,
He is the death of dying, the primal birth of being.

To him I owe my eyes that I can see the dawn,
To him I owe my heart wherein is pity born;
Whene'er I hear the tempest, I hear him pass along
Midst multitude of voices raised in a holy song;
And yet of his great mercy I beg still one behest:
That I at last be taken to his eternal rest.

Be curses on the fellow who would my praise acclaim,
But blessings upon him who does my soul defame;
Believe no matter whom who slanders my renown,
Give power to the arm that lifts to strike me down;
Let him upon the earth above all others loom
Who steals away the stone that lies upon my tomb.

Hunted by humanity, let me my whole life fly
Until I feel from weeping my very eyes are dry;
Let everyone detest me no matter where I go,
Until from persecution myself I do not know;
Let misery and horror my heart transform to stone,
That I may hate my mother, in whose love I have grown;
Till hating and deceiving for me with love will vie,
And I forget my suffering, and learn at last to die.

Dishonoured let me perish, an outcast among men;
My body less than worthy to block the gutter then,
And may, o God of mercy, a crown of diamonds wear
The one who gives my heart the hungry dogs to tear,
While for the one who in my face does callous fling a clod
In your eternal kingdom reserve a place, o God.

Thus only, gracious Father, can I requitance give
That you from your great bounty vouched me the joy to live;
To gain eternal blessings my head I do not bow,
But rather ask that you in hating compassion show.
Till comes at last the evening, your breath will mine efface,
And into endless nothing I go, and leave no trace.

PS Thanks! Denysa, tie iti apartine ideea de a veni cu aceasta poezie pe aceasta tema.

Cine se teme de suferinta...va suferi de teama.

Articole romanesti in National Geographic - de Dinu Lazar la: 23/10/2004 09:02:10
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
"Le platim destul de bine pe cele ce vor fi tiparite."

Ce e aia "destul" de bine? As fi curios sa stiu.

Exista un "cost of doing business" unde se aduna toate cheltuielile si e foarte simplu de calculat costul de fabricatie al unei fotografii sau al unui reportaj.
Exista pe net nenumarate ghiduri de preturi si de modele de calcul si liste dedicate maririi gradului de cultura economica al fotografilor.
Un exemplu ar fi ghidul australian de la
sau paginile
http://www.johnharrington.com/rates/
ori
http://lifes-work.biz/asmp112002art.pdf
si nenumarate altele.
Bun, sa zicem ca noi suntem mai de cacao si ne multumim cu un salariu invizibil; dar costurile cu sculele, softurile, computerele, sunt maimari la noi decit la ei.
Pina la urma, la noi e mult, mult mai scump sa fii fotograf decit "dincolo" si mult, mult mai putin rentabil, tinind cont de banii care se pot obtine de la editorii din tara.

Oricum ideea de a face la gramada materiale care poate plac, poate nu plac, din care unele sa ajunga tiparite, mi se pare pur romaneasca.

In lumea civilizata se face asa; merge fotograful cu book-ul la revista si acolo marele jmekercu ochi de vultur din redactie, decide: mda, asta e bun sa faca un material despre aia, asta despre aia, asta despre aia.
Se vorbeste in principiu cite pagini sunt necesare, se discuta un model de paginatie ( fotograful sa aiba si imagini pe lat, si pe inalt, si cutare, si cutare, si detalii, si atmosfera) si omul merge si face materialul si e platit la zi sau la bucata de poza si isi face in asa fel cheltuielile incit sa ramina totusi si cu un infinit de mic profit.

Exista, la ei, mari fotografi care pe listele de discutii ii educa pe incepatori:

You have NOT been hired until you tell them what your fees and expenses are and they agree in writing to pay that amount. What if you tell them you charge $2000 per photo after you have shot the job? Do you think they will pay you? A lot of photographers work this way. Someone hires them to do photography, never talks price and then they call around after the shoot and ask what they should charge. If it is more than the client expected to pay, then they either except what the client wanted to pay (in which case they get screwed and the client assumes the photographer was trying to screw them to start with) or they stick to their price and tick the client off, both of which lead the client to be hard nose and abusive with photographers in the future.

Sorry for the bluntness, but I think a lot of the problems we have
today are a result of some photographer's reluctance to deal with price
and terms and conditions in advance for fear of not getting the work.

So let's assume that you do not have the job. Gather all the
information you need from the client about the shoot and how the
photographs will be used. This includes: how many finished photos they
expect to end up with, do they want variations to choose from, how many
books will they be printing, how long do they want to distribute that
amount, will they just be distributed in guest's rooms or elsewhere,
etc, etc.

Once you have that information, put together an estimate in writing
that spells out the exact license that you are granting, the creative
fee and prep fees you will be charging along with all the expenses
involved in the shoot. Include your terms and conditions with the
estimate and ask the client to review the estimate and T&C and call you
if they have any questions or want to discuss anything. If they have no
question and approve they should sign the estimate and send it back to
you.

Try to partner with the client to find a way to give them what they
need( which is usually different from what they want) within or close
to their budget. This may mean cutting things out of the shoot, doing
fewer variations, fewer finished photographs used, smaller print run,
less usage, etc. A lot of times what they start out wanting in usage
and what they want to spend are far different from where it ends up.
The important thing is to work with them to try and find a way to make
it happen. If you express your desire to work with them and they
respond in kind, a lot of times you can work it out so everyone wins.
If not , they realize you may be more expensive than they can afford
now, but you are someone who is willing to try and find a way to make
it work and they may hire you in the future when they can afford you.

Be forewarned that there are clients who want it their way regardless
and if they can't get it , will blow you off and move on to the next
photographer until they find one who is desperate enough to work with
them.

Base your initial fee on a specific print run for one year's
distribution (assuming that's what they want). In the estimate under an
options section, quote them a percentage of the original fee (usually
50-75%) of the original fee for a second year and an additional
percentage for each additional year. If they want to license the second
year (or more) in advance lower the percentage some.

I suspect they just don't want to tell you. They have to know how many they are printing. How else can they place the order with the printer?
If they won't give you a print run, specify a print run in your
estimate or better yet ask them if you limit the print run to 100,000
will that be enough, and base the estimate on that. Chances are they'll
say, "heck no, we won't print more than 10,000", because they realize
the price will be higher if it's based on 100,000.

Asimov... - de DESTIN la: 17/11/2004 02:51:14
(la: SUFLETUL ESTE NEMURITOR)
No comment,

"Kurtz: Isaac, how would you describe your own position? Agnostic, atheist, rationalist, humanist?

Asimov: I am an atheist, out and out. It took me a long time to say it. I've been an atheist for years and years, but somehow I felt it was intellectually unrespectable to say one was an atheist, because it assumed knowledge that one didn't have. Somehow it was better to say one was a humanist or an agnostic. I finally decided that I'm a creature of emotion as well as of reason. Emotionally I am an atheist. I don't have the evidence to prove that God doesn't exist, but I so strongly suspect he doesn't that I don't want to waste my time."

To my kentucky valentine:) - de Horia D la: 11/02/2005 17:11:39
(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata)
dupa cum stiti, luni va fi valentine's day, deci poemul de mai jos e pentru
toate fefelinele:)))

Collards is green,
my dog's name is Blue
and I'm so lucky
to have a sweet thang like you.

Yore hair is like cornsilk
a-flapping in the breeze.
Softer than Blue's
and without all them fleas.

You move like the bass,
which excite me in May.
You ain't got no scales
but I luv you anyway.

Yo're as satisfy'n as okry
jist a-fry'n in the pan.
Yo're as fragrant as "snuff"
right out of the can.

You have some'a yore teeth,
for which I am proud;
I hold my head high
when we're in a crowd.

On special occasions
when you shave under yore arms,
well, I'm in hawg heaven,
and awed by yore charms.

Still them fellers at work
they all want to know,
what I did to deserve
such a purdy, young doe.

Like a good roll of duct tape
yo're there fer yore man,
to patch up life's troubles
and fix what you can.

Yo're as cute as a junebug
a-buzzin' overhead.
You ain't mean like those far ants
I found in my bed.

Cut from the best cloth
like a plaid flannel shirt,
you spark up my life more
than a fresh load of dirt.

When you hold me real tight
like a padded gunrack,
my life is complete;
Ain't nuttin' I lack.

Yore complexion, it's perfection,
like the best vinyl sidin'.
despite all the years,
yore age, it keeps hidin'.

Me 'n' you's like a Moon Pie
with a RC cold drank,
we go together
like a skunk goes with stank.

Some men, they buy chocolate
for Valentine's Day;
They git it at Wal-Mart,
it's romantic that way.

Some men git roses
on that special day
from the cooler at Kroger.
That's impressive," I say.

Some men buy fine diamonds
from a flea market booth.
"Diamonds are forever,"
they explain, suave and couth.

But for this man, honey,
these just won't do.
Cause yo're too special,
you sweet thang you.

I got you a gift,
without taste nor odor,
More useful than diamonds...
it's a new troll'n motor!!
1 aprilie marca tsunami? - de Dinu Lazar la: 22/03/2005 21:16:27
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Mie nu imi suna bine chestia asta:

Dear Friends,
I am Gaurav Dhwaj Khadka from Kathmandu, Nepal and I am 22 years old guy. I am student and I am doing my BA in English, Sociology and Anthropology. I am also learning photography but as my first work, I got the job at a local newspaper to shot photo for them and I was sent to take photographs of Andaman and NICO bar islands in India. But it was that I was also hit by the tsunami and I lost my camera and a good friend that help me in all my troubles and problems. I was also injured by that nightmare and have a pierce a nail in my right hand over an elbow, but I was a lucky one that I survive but I feel myself guilty because my friend did not want to go over there but I presser him to go with me. Because of me he lost his life, so I feel that I will never touch the camera and never take any photo in my life but back in home in Nepal. I find a note book of my lost friend in my room that was filled with his word about me and he wanted to me be a famous photographer and film makers. He was an orphan so my mom treats him as her own son so he feels that I was a brother to him, so he wanted me to be a good and famous photographer of Nepal. I did not even get the body of my brother, now I am quite well but as I uplift any heavy things with my right hand it hurt like hell. By time pass physical wound will heal but the wound that I got on my heart never heals. So I thought to start over again my friend dreams. So I have to start from nothing because I have lost my all camera. So I beg you to send me any SLR camera as donations or I will pay you back but only as installments of 100 US$ each installment. I was using Nikon FM 10 with 28-80-2.8 lens. It is best for me if you can send me Nikon FM10 w/35-70mm lens Or 500 US$. I will pay you back I promise you, so please do help me. You can also send me any other books or note books about photography and other cameras that you do not use. It will be very helpful for me, the world is changing a lot with digital camera and I love to get one, if any body have one that you do not use that or you get new one than please do send me that too with its all manual and soft wear for that I will pay you back or as donations.

ptr. ca tot se vorbeste despre preturi.... - de Dinu Lazar la: 01/08/2005 06:59:04
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Exista o discutie chiar acum pe o lista a fotografilor profesionisti; un amic din State are o replica ce pune pe ginduri...

You know, the thought occurs to me that, thanks to advancements in
technology, the need (as it is perceived by the consumer) for
professional photographers is ever dwindling.

This is not meant as a trolling post to raise ire, but a simple
observation. Remember, 100 years ago doing this newfangled thing
called photography required a quasi-chemistry degree; mixing
emulsions, chemicals, etc. was the state of the art. Not a whole lot
of photos were taken, since one needed a "pro" just to get a single
picture made.

Time passed, new stuff got invented and then George E came along with
the portable camera. Now here was a camera for the masses - anyone's
Uncle Filbert could take some family snaps, but the pro level stuff
was still far more costly and the skills required to use it way
beyond casual - so the profession prospered. If anything, I'd imagine
that seeing the fuzzy badly composed shots from Filbert would incite
more people to want to go to a pro for a "real" portrait.

Another 50-ish years, and nowadays the quality of equipment is nil
between "pro level" and advanced consumer. Heck, they even coined the
term "prosumer" to accommodate the idea of just regular folk owning
fancy gear. Thanks to post production software that can be applied to
digital images, the number of individuals who have access to hitherto
custom or high-end retouching has exploded. So, it is not
inconceivable that the Uncle Filbert of today can and does produce
work as excellent as any pro.

And this is not to denigrate the professionals, who must work ever
harder to convince people that their fees are worth it. Certainly, on
the artistic side the pro's ability to herd the wedding guests or
know how the lighting should be or time to the exact nanosecond
before releasing the shutter are tangible skills that must be
included in the consumer's perception of value. But those skills are
getting buried under the sheer number of advanced hobbyists who are
happy just to get their work published, or honored to be taking the
photos for the family wedding. And, whereas in past decades the
difference between those hobbyists' output and the professionals' was
noticeable, I think we are seeing a time now where that difference is
ever narrowing. In fact, with more images being viewed on screens,
any subtleties of lighting and tonality are all the more lost as when
compared to paper versions (magazine or inkjet).

What I'm saying is that, through no fault of anything but
technological progress, I get the sense that in another 50 years
(probably less) there will no longer be a professional photographic
"industry" - there will be equipment and software providers, but the
huge value added by pros of yesteryear and to a lesser degree today
will shaved even further to the point where commercial venues of
photography will be limited. Photographs as fine art will no doubt
survive, as they should, but it just seems to me that wedding,
photojournalism, and to some degree commercial photography may become
quaint memories by the time our children have grown.

La multi ani DON PEDRO!!!!!! HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!! - de Dinu Lazar la: 29/09/2005 00:48:14
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Am primit o scrisoare emotionanta de la tatal faimosului zonezero... cita energie, cita maiestrie, cita dragoste pentru fotografie!
Uluitor!

Dear Friends,

Next week will be my 70th birthday, I feel very happy and more than privileged to have been able to share this adventure with you, of going from analog to digital during these past eleven years of our presence with ZoneZero.

I want to thank you for making this into such a world wide community of people who want to explore the potentials of what these technologies have had to offer us.

We have always endeavored to put content at the center of all that we have presented, while bringing all possible technologies to support such efforts.

Probably one of the more important things that have taken place from a technological point of view, is that all the viewers who visit us, have direct access to comment and establish a dialogue directly with the photographers showing their work here in ZoneZero.

I can not begin to tell you all the connections that have been created in the process, something that very few other publishing platforms can offer. Thus we are very confident that the internet has been a definite contribution to the world of photography.

We have seen nothing yet of all that the digital revolution has in store for us as band width expands and computers become increasingly more powerful and sophisiticated.

There are however some limitations, a handful of countries have blocked ZoneZero, as containing inappropiate material arguing that the people in their countries should not be allowed to see such images. We disagree with this censorship and find that it is up to the individuals to make up their own minds what they want to see or not, rather than have that decided upon by governments.

Of course we understand the diverse sensibilities across the cultural diversity that a site such as ours, which is world wide, has to contend with. But then we have nothing more to guide us than the integrity of the images and authors whose work we have presented. We hope that in the process of bringing such a diversity of work as can be seen in ZoneZero, we did not offended all that many people. Pleasing everyone is an impossible proposition when working with ideas and explorations.

In the process we have brought you the work of 1350 photographers. 70 countries are represented in this wide spectrum of photography. With over fifty million page views (yes!, you read correctly, 50,000,000) in these past twelve months, so you can rest assured that all this work has been seen all over the world, thus transforming many old paradigms of publishing, exhibiting and distributing photographs.

Your presence and participation in ZoneZero has been one of the greatest gifts you could have given us, so thank you! Let us hope that the next few decades are as exciting as the recent past.

(la: Arde Parisul?)
PARIS, Monday, Nov. 7 - Rioters fired shotguns at the police in a working-class suburb of Paris on Sunday, wounding 10 officers as the country's fast-spreading urban unrest escalated dangerously. Just hours earlier, President Jacques Chirac called an emergency meeting of top security officials and promised increased police pressure to confront the violence.

"The republic is completely determined to be stronger than those who want to sow violence or fear," Mr. Chirac said at a news conference in the courtyard of Élysée Palace after meeting with his internal security council. "The last word must be from the law."

Young men passed a burning motorcycle in Argenteuil, outside Paris, Sunday night. The recent violence has been centered in towns near Paris.

A firefighter examined the wreckage of a textile warehouse Sunday in Aubervilliers, a Paris suburb. The building was set ablaze on Friday.


A burning car was extinguished in Argenteuil, west of Paris, as riots in France flared for another night on Sunday.

President Jacques Chirac of France, with Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, said restoring order was "the highest priority."

But the violence, which has become one of the most serious challenges to governmental authority here in nearly 40 years, showed no sign of abating. The Associated Press reported on Monday that French police said that a man beaten during riots has died, becoming the first fatality since unrest started. and Sunday was the first day that police officers had been wounded by gunfire in the unrest. More than 3,300 vehicles have been destroyed, along with dozens of public buildings and private businesses, since the violence began.

"This is just the beginning," said Moussa Diallo, 22, a tall, unemployed French-African man in Clichy-sous-Bois, the working-class Parisian suburb where the violence started Oct. 27. "It's not going to end until there are two policemen dead."

He was referring to the two teenage boys, one of Mauritanian origin and the other of Tunisian origin, whose accidental deaths while hiding from the police touched off the unrest, reflecting longstanding anger among many immigrant families here over joblessness and discrimination. Mr. Diallo did not say whether he had taken part in the vandalism.

On Saturday night alone, the tally in the rioting reached a peak of 1,300 vehicles burned, stretching into the heart of Paris, where 35 vehicles were destroyed, and touching a dozen other cities across the country.

Fires were burning in several places on Sunday night and hundreds of youths were reported to have clashed with the police in Grigny, a southern suburb of Paris where the shooting took place. On Saturday night, a car was rammed into the front of a McDonald's restaurant in the town.

"We have 10 policemen that were hit by gunfire in Grigny, and two of them are in the hospital," Patrick Hamon, a national police spokesman, said Monday morning.

He said one of the officers hospitalized had been hit in the neck, the other in the leg, but added that neither wound was considered life-threatening.

Rampaging youths have attacked the police and property in cities as far away as Toulouse and Marseille and in the resort towns of Cannes and Nice in the south, the industrial city of Lille in the north and Strasbourg to the east.

In Évreux, 60 miles west of Paris, shops, businesses, a post office and two schools were destroyed, along with at least 50 vehicles, in Saturday night's most concentrated attacks. Five police officers and three firefighters were injured in clashes with young rioters, a national police spokesman said.

Despite help from thousands of reinforcements, the police appeared powerless to stop the mayhem. As they apply pressure in one area, the attacks slip away to another.

On Sunday, a gaping hole exposed a charred wooden staircase of a smoke-blackened building in the historic Marais district of Paris, where a car was set ablaze the previous night. Florent Besnard, 24, said he and a friend had just turned into the quiet Rue Dupuis when they were passed by two running youths. Within seconds, a car farther up the street was engulfed in flames, its windows popping and tires exploding as the fire spread to the building and surrounding vehicles.

"I think it's going to continue," said Mr. Besnard, who is unemployed.

The attack angered people in the neighborhood, which includes the old Jewish quarter and is still a center of Jewish life in the city. "We escaped from Romania with nothing and came here and worked our fingers to the bone and never asked for anything, never complained," said Liliane Zump, a woman in her 70's, shaking with fury on the street outside the scarred building.

While the arson is more common than in the past, it has become a feature of life in the working-class suburbs, peopled primarily by North African and West African immigrants and their French-born children. Unemployment in the neighborhoods is double and sometimes triple the 10 percent national average, while incomes are about 40 percent lower.

While everyone seems to agree that the latest violence was touched off by the deaths of the teenagers last week, the unrest no longer has much to do with the incident.

"It was a good excuse, but it's fun to set cars on fire," said Mohamed Hammouti, a 15-year-old boy in Clichy-sous-Bois, sitting Sunday outside the gutted remnants of a gymnasium near his home. Like many people interviewed, he denied having participated in the violence.

Most people said they sensed that the escalation of the past few days had changed the rules of the game: besides the number of attacks, the level of destruction has grown sharply, with substantial businesses and public buildings going down in flames. Besides the gunfire on Sunday, residents of some high-rise apartment blocks have been throwing steel boccie balls and improvised explosives at national riot police officers patrolling below.

In the Parisian suburb of Aubervilliers early Sunday, with smoke hanging in the air and a helicopter humming overhead, a helmeted police officer in a flak jacket carried a soft drink bottle gingerly away from where it had landed near him and his colleagues moments before. The bottle, half-filled with a clear liquid and nails, had failed to explode.

Teenagers in neighboring Clichy-sous-Bois said they had seen young men preparing similar devices with acid and aluminum foil. "They make a huge bang," said Sofiane Belkalem, 13.

The police discovered what they described as a firebomb factory in a building in Évry, south of Paris, in which about 150 bombs were being constructed, a third of them ready to use. Six minors were arrested.

Many politicians have warned that the unrest may be coalescing into an organized movement, citing Internet chatter that is urging other poor neighborhoods across France to join in. But no one has emerged to take the lead like Daniel Cohn-Bendit, known as Danny the Red, did during the violent student protests that rocked the French capital in 1968.

Though a majority of the youths committing the acts are Muslim, and of African or North African origin, the mayhem has yet to take on any ideological or religious overtones. Youths in the neighborhoods say second-generation Portuguese immigrants and even some children of native French have taken part.

In an effort to stop the attacks and distance them from Islam, France's most influential Islamic group issued a religious edict, or fatwa, condemning the violence. "It is formally forbidden for any Muslim seeking divine grace and satisfaction to participate in any action that blindly hits private or public property or could constitute an attack on someone's life," the fatwa said, citing the Koran and the teachings of Muhammad.

Young people in the poor neighborhoods incubating the violence have consistently complained that police harassment is mainly to blame. "If you're treated like a dog, you react like a dog," said Mr. Diallo of Clichy-sous-Bois, whose parents came to France from Mali decades ago.

The youths have singled out the French interior minister, Nicolas Sarkozy, complaining about his zero-tolerance anticrime drive and dismissive talk. (He famously called troublemakers in the poor neighborhoods dregs, using a French slur that offended many people.)

But Mr. Sarkozy has not wavered, and after suffering initial isolation within the government, with at least one minister openly criticizing him, the government has closed ranks around him. Mr. Chirac, who is under political and popular pressure to stop the violence, said Sunday that those responsible would face arrest and trial, echoing earlier vows by Mr. Sarkozy. More than 500 people have been arrested, some as young as 13.

The government response is as much a test between Mr. Sarkozy and Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, both of whom want to succeed Mr. Chirac as president, as it is a test between the government and disaffected youths.

Mr. Villepin, a former foreign minister, has focused on a more diplomatic approach, consulting widely with community leaders and young second-generation immigrants to come up with a promised "action plan" that he said would address frustrations in the underprivileged neighborhoods. He has released no details of the plan.

If the damage escalates and sympathy for the rioters begins to fray, Mr. Sarkozy could well emerge the politically stronger of the two.
