Pentru Desdemona - de Florin si atat la: 16/04/2004 13:44:36
(la: Automobile si soferi)
"...destul de comuna ca sa fie inteleasa in sensul ce i l-am atribuit aici." Se pare ca am fost plecat de cam mult din tara si am uitat 'expresia'.

Mi-ai facut mare bucurie sa-mi aduci aminte de poezia lui Rudyard Kipling. Imi place sa o savurez in engleza pentru ca are un inteles mai profund...pentru mine:

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

Nu are rost sa mai comentez la ce ai scris. Inteleg acum ce vrei sa spui...:)

Numai bine
Florin si atat

WAR PIGS - de Little Eagle la: 04/05/2004 12:07:57
(la: 1984...)
" 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! "

Committee to Protect Journalists - de Dinu Lazar la: 06/05/2004 23:51:38

Committee to Protect Journalists

EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE: MONDAY, MAY 3, AT 00:01 GMT (For Monday's Newspapers)

CPJ Names World's Worst Places to Be a Journalist

New York, April 30, 2004-The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is marking World Press Freedom Day, Monday, May 3, by naming the World's Worst Places to Be a Journalist.
The list of 10 places represents the full range of current threats to press freedom.

At the top of the list is Iraq, where 25 journalists have died since the U.S.-led war began in March 2003. A brutal crackdown launched last year in Cuba by Fidel Castro's government has left an unprecedented 29 journalists behind bars, serving lengthy prison terms of up to 27 years. Last year saw the biggest blow to Zimbabwe's beleaguered press when authorities closed the country's only remaining independent daily. CPJ also placed Turkmenistan, Bangladesh, China, Eritrea, Haiti, the West Bank and Gaza, and Russia on the list of Worst Places to Be a Journalist.

"In all of these places, reporting the news is an act of courage and conviction," said CPJ Executive Director Ann Cooper. "Journalism is essential in helping all of us understand the events that shape our lives, and our need and desire for information cannot be eliminated by violence and repression."



More than a year after the war in Iraq began, the country remains the most dangerous place in the world to work as a journalist. Twenty-five journalists have been killed in action in Iraq since March 2003. Twelve have been killed in 2004 alone-all of them Iraqis.

Postwar Iraq is fraught with risks for reporters: Banditry, gunfire, and bombings are common. Insurgents have added a new threat by systematically targeting foreigners, including journalists, and Iraqis who work for them.
At least six Iraqi media workers have been murdered, and several more have received threats. Armed groups have abducted some eight journalists in 2004, though all have been released.

U.S. forces pose an additional threat to working journalists: at least seven-and possibly as many as nine-journalists have been killed by gunfire from U.S. forces. Other journalists-mostly Arab or Iraqi-have been detained and suffered mistreatment at the hands of U.S. forces.


The arrest and long-term imprisonment of 29 journalists in 2003 has decimated Cuba's fledgling independent press. A year after the government of President Fidel Castro Ruz launched a massive crackdown against the press and the political opposition, the imprisoned journalists and their families are harassed and exposed to humiliating prison conditions and psychological torture. They have denounced inadequate medical attention, have been placed in solitary confinement, and have complained about receiving foul-smelling and rotten food. The journalists, who are held in maximum-security facilities, went on hunger strikes several times to demand better conditions. Those journalists who were not imprisoned continue to face routine police intimidation and harassment and are careful about what they write. They say they have been visited by state security officials and issued warnings to stop writing or face the consequences.


For the last four years, Zimbabwe's government has pursued a relentless crackdown on the private press through harassment, censorship, and restrictive legislation. Last year saw the biggest blow to press freedom yet, with authorities closing the Daily News, Zimbabwe's only independent daily and the country's most popular paper. The country's Media and Information Commission (MIC), whose board is government-appointed, refused to register the newspaper despite two court orders to do so. And in February 2004, the Zimbabwean Supreme Court upheld legislation requiring journalists and media outlets to be licensed by the MIC, making it a criminal act to practice journalism without government approval. Those who fail to register face fines and up to two years' imprisonment.

Zimbabwean officials have proven particularly sensitive to coverage of political unrest and the country's severe economic problems. Journalists who reported on pro-democracy rallies were arrested by police and attacked by ruling party supporters. Last year, authorities deported the last foreign reporter based in Zimbabwe, the U.K. Guardian's Andrew Meldrum, whom officials called an "undesirable inhabitant."


Because political dissent is not tolerated by Turkmenistan's totalitarian regime, independent journalism is practically non-existent.
President-for-life and self-proclaimed "father of all Turkmen,"
Niyazov, maintains strict control over all newspapers, radio, and television stations by personally appointing editors, and his office approves news reports before they are published or broadcast.

One of the only independent media outlets that penetrates this system of control is the reporting broadcast from abroad by the Turkmen service of the U.S. government-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL). And again this year, RFE/RL was subjected to intense official harassment. In September 2003, National Security Service (MNB) agents detained an RFE/RL stringer based in the capital, Ashgabat, for two days, threatened him with 20 years in prison for betraying his country, and injected him multiple times with an unknown substance. More recently, in February 2004, MNB agents arrested two RFE/RL freelancers after one smuggled 800 copies of his banned novel into Turkmenistan. Both were released from prison in March after CPJ and other press freedom groups protested. However, the journalists still face charges of slander and instigating social, ethnic, and religious hatred and have been pressured to sever all ties with RFE/RL.


Crime, corruption, and lawlessness make Bangladesh the most violent country for journalists in Asia. Reporters routinely face threats, harassment, and often brutally violent physical attacks in retaliation for their reporting.
Despite promises from government officials to apprehend those responsible for assaults, the majority of attacks on journalists go unpunished. Deep political divisions in the country and within the journalism community also contribute to the climate of fear.

CPJ has documented dozens of violent attacks against Bangladeshi journalists during the last decade, including the murders of seven journalists in the last eight years. Journalists working outside the capital, Dhaka, are particularly vulnerable. Veteran journalist Manik Saha was killed in January
2004 in the southwestern city of Khulna when unidentified assailants threw a homemade bomb at him. In December 2003, a group of thugs affiliated with the ruling Bangladesh Nationalist Party tried to kill Shafiul Haque Mithu in the southwestern town of Pirojpur after he wrote a series of articles exposing local officials' abuse of power.


During the last year, the newly installed government of President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao has escalated an assault on the burgeoning independent-minded media in China. Authorities have arrested high-profile editors, closed publications, and imposed news blackouts on politically sensitive events.

The crackdown reached an apex in early 2004, when officials arrested three popular and respected editors from the pioneering Southern Metropolis News for alleged corruption. The charges came after the paper published a series of reports on the resurgence of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, local police violence, and other sensitive topics. Chinese journalists have called the arrests the "darkest moment" in 20 years of media reform in China.

Forty-one journalists are now imprisoned in China, making it the world's leading jailer of journalists for the fifth year in a row. Independent writers and commentators on the Internet are particularly targeted for prosecution. The arrest of prominent and outspoken commentator Du Daobin in late 2003 sent a clear message to all Internet writers that free expression online will not be tolerated.


Eritrea has been Africa's foremost jailer of journalists since September 2001, when the government banned the entire private press and detained independent reporters. Seventeen journalists are now in secret jails across the tiny Red Sea nation, almost all of them held incommunicado. President Isaias Afewerki and top government officials have accused independent journalists of espionage, spreading disinformation, and "endangering national unity." Authorities continue to insist that the private press also operated without proper licenses, and that independent journalists routinely evaded the compulsory National Service Program. Despite these allegations, no formal charges have been brought against any of the journalists, and the government has given no indication that it intends to prosecute them.

The ruling party has a firm grip on the state media, whose employees are censored and also practice self-censorship. Afewerki has been unfazed by persistent international denunciation of his human rights record and continues to dismiss foreign critics as enemies of Eritrea.


Press freedom conditions have seriously deteriorated in Haiti since September 2003, when the murder of a notorious gang leader sparked nationwide violence. From January to March 2004, journalists became targets during the uprising that led to the ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on February 29. While hostility against Haitian journalists is common, foreign correspondents were also attacked while covering the two-month rebellion. In March, a Spanish television correspondent was killed and a U.S. photographer was wounded by gunfire. Several radio stations were torched around the country. Investigations into the 2000 and 2001 murders of two prominent Haitian journalists have shown no progress. The Haitian judicial system's failure to prosecute these crimes has perpetuated a climate of impunity, forcing dozens of journalists to go into exile or seek political asylum.


The West Bank and Gaza Strip remains one of the most unpredictable and potentially dangerous assignments for journalists. At least three journalists have been killed there since April 2003-each by Israeli army gunfire. Israeli troops often harass or attack Palestinian journalists, and Israeli authorities enforce tough restrictions on their freedom of movement.
Palestinian journalists are vulnerable to the increasing lawlessness in the Occupied Territories.

Palestinian militias and armed groups have frequently threatened and assaulted reporters and in some cases have ransacked news offices. In 2003 and 2004, Palestinian gunmen raided two television news offices and a newspaper in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, attacked a correspondent on the street in Gaza, and assaulted a reporter in Ramallah.


President Vladimir Putin's "managed democracy," which includes using various branches of the state bureaucracy to rein in the independent media, is making the practice of independent journalism in Russia more and more tenuous. A shift from blatant pressures to more subtle and covert tactics, such as politicized lawsuits and hostile corporate takeovers by businessmen with close ties to Putin, has allowed the Kremlin to stifle criticism of the president and reports on government corruption and human rights abuses committed by Russian forces in Chechnya.

In advance of the December 2003 parliamentary elections and March 2004 presidential elections, the Kremlin tightened its legal and bureaucratic controls over the domestic press. Russian press groups criticized the Central Election Commission for failing to sanction the state-run national television channels for improperly promoting Putin and pro-Kremlin parties during the campaigns.

Journalists in Russia's provinces continue to be murdered with impunity.
October 2003, the editor-in-chief of an independent newspaper in the Volga River city of Togliatti was stabbed to death because of his paper's coverage of organized crime and government corruption. He was the paper's second editor-in-chief to be murdered in 18 months.

The Committee to Protect Journalists is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to defending press freedom worldwide.

The New York Times si rascoala fotografilor - de Dinu Lazar la: 18/05/2004 02:20:32
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Dear fellow editorial photographers and colleagues:

It was with significant dismay that we read The New York Times' recent contract offer to its contributing freelance photographers. It marks a new low point in our industry's downward spiral in the terms under which freelancers are asked to work for publications.

Over the years the Times has been continually diminishing the compensation it pays to freelancers. It has not raised its assignment fees for so many years that inflation has greatly eaten away the value of the payment. By comparison, standard photo assistant day rates in most metro areas of the US now outstrip what The New York Times sees fit to pay its freelance photographers for creating the visual content of its pages. To add insult to injury, in 1998 the Times began demanding web use without additional payment, then a few years later unilaterally eliminated transmission fees, and now is asking for copyright with no additional increase in compensation. The Times is in essence seeking to gain virtually all the benefits of having employees without bearing any of the real costs. Why should freelancers subsidize The New York Times in this manner?

In its defense, the Times has argued that this contract is not much different from many contracts currently employed by newspapers. We feel that joining the ranks of other publishers that attempt to bully their freelancers with bad terms and bad contracts only makes the Times one more bully on the block. Given that the Times takes pride in presenting itself as an organization devoted to integrity and excellence, its treatment of freelancers clearly violates its own cherished principles. We would think that a publication as esteemed and prestigious as The New York Times would find this situation most embarrassing, not to mention demoralizing to those who are asked to distribute this contract.

From a photographer's perspective the Times contract is an abysmally bad deal (for a thorough analysis, please go to:

). EP has always strongly taken the position that photographers should say NO to bad deals. We continue to urge all freelancers to walk away from bad deals.

Sincerely and respectfully,

(la: Cum sa devii un liberal de nota 10!)
Ah, lacul!!! Ce pofta am acum de apa si soare. Too bad I have to work. Got to pay those taxes, you know. Se pare totusi ca marketul merge destul de bine, economia este in plina putere. Sugestiile mele, American Funds. It's the best fund company, having 64% of its equity and bond funds raking in the top quartile of their Morningstar peer groups over the past five years. Last year, just as an example, the American Funds New Perspective Fund Cl A (ANWPX) had a 36.76% return. Daca vrei mai multe informatii dute la Below I am quoting an interesting commentary:
There are three reasons why I am bullish on the stock market. First, the economy is growing rapidly. Second, corporate profits are also rising rapidly. Third, George W. Bush is the pro-growth candidate standing firm with pro-investor tax cuts. He is going to win.

The most accurate gauge of recent election results going back to 1988 is the Iowa Electronic Presidential Winner-Take-All Market. It has a better track record than the polls. The collective wisdom of ordinary people is smarter than the elite polling experts, according James Surowiecki’s “The Wisdom of Crowds.” He specifically points to the Iowa market trading system as a superior election forecaster than the polls.
What’s it telling us now? The Bush contract is trading at 54 cents on the dollar, while the Kerry contract is exchanging hands at 47 cents. Since trading began on June 1, Bush has steadily held this lead. There you have it. The market speaks.

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,
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....

Jim Morrison-vocals+lyrics(great poetry)
Ray Manzarek-keyboards
Robby Krieger-Guitar
John Densmore-drums
...This is the end....

Tatal Nostru... - de LMC la: 07/07/2004 00:21:03
O, Birther of the Cosmos, focus your light within us -- make it useful
Create your reign of unity now
Your one desire then acts with ours,
As in all light,
So in all forms,
Grant us what we need each day in bread and insight:
Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,
As we release the strands we hold of other's guilt.
Don't let surface things delude us,
But free us from what holds us back.
From you is born all ruling will,
The power and the life to do,
The song that beautifies all,
From age to age it renews.
I affirm this with my whole being.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"I am only one, but I AM one!"

Pt. Destin - de Little Eagle la: 06/08/2004 07:25:13
Am mai scris de cateva ori si iar repet pt. ca gandesc o mare intelepciune in cuvintele unui om sarac si simplu,care nu a vrut bogatii nici alte lumi si pamanturi,a ales de multe ori sa se retraga ,sa-si conduca tribul departe de lupte decat sa foloseasca el insusi un mod de a pedepsi pe invadatorii englezi,francezi called americans!Poate un fel de Mahatma Ghandi inainte ca acesta din urma sa se fi nascut.

Dear Destin,tu esti un om intelept,multi in cercul nostru la cafenea avem o inteligenta mare,nu suntem nici dobitoci nici ramasi in urma,desigur ca ne certam mereu unul cu altul/alta,sau altul cu altii si altii cu altul si in final unii cu toti ceilalti de parca there's no tomorrow!

Nu cred ca este necesar.Nu noi ne certam intre noi(ca suflet)ci lasam frau liber ego-ului sa -si exprime tot ce zace in el selfish si raul iese afara mereu,nu e bine.Daca cineva vorbeste si da ex. legate de Jesus,de ce oare trebuie sa critice pe un altul ca si cum este vinovat si ar merita luat la pietre si de ce nu crucificat...?De ce acela ce critica e mereu nervos si suparat impotriva lumii parca?
Atunci unde este pilda lui Iisus?Ce sfaturi si ce invataminte ar fi dat el discipolilor lui sau tuturor,daca i-ar fi luat la palme verbale si mereu urlat la ei si fiind nervos si suparat?Oare nu exista ceea ce se numeste compasiune si intelegere dar si rabdare pt. orice in viata?

Odata Iisus a mai spus ceva legat cu ...palma data pe un obraz si el ar intoarce pe celalalt....
Acum scriu nu neaparat tie Destin ori Enigmescu ori cine stie cine altcineva ci in marele general.Eu personal real as dori sa cred in Dumnezeu sa fiu ca Iisus de ex. dar stiu ca este mai mult decat f. greu,insa incerc si nu ma voi bate niciodata cu pumnii in piept ca sunt crestin de cutare ordin ori credincios in cutare religie sau credinta.
Pt. ca stiu ca a iubi pe Dumnezeu este aproape imposibil si totusi pt. o mana de oameni in tot acest univers nu a fost ori este nerealizabil,pt. ca daca vrei sa te consideri credincios in Jesus de ex. atunci...neaparat TREBUIE(imi pare rau de majuscule,real am dorit sa subliniez importanta)sa traiesti viata lui.....

Intreb de curiozitate daca cineva cunoaste ori a auzit de astfel de persoana?
De aceea sunt retinut si nu spun ca iubesc real pe Dumnezeu,stiu totusi cine este si invat mereu privind in jurul meu natura in care-l vad si mai greu dar vad si in oameni,cel mai greu!Pt. ca trebuie sa fii detasat de orice stare de spirit rea si sarenunti la orice manifestare a ego-ului ...e f. greu!!!!

Dar ,exista lucruri mai simple in drumul de a afla pe Dumnezeu si in fapt ...a-l descoperi in tine insuti.Si ele mereu au fost exprimate ca pt. mintea noastra de avatarii lumii,prin pilde si parabole,ca in trecut cand mintea umana nu era chiar asa de ridicata....dar azi inca nu este decat tare atunci ce face Dumnezeu?
Se coboara la mintea noastra si ne da ceva de gandit o regula,sa zicem in viata.El NU poate vorbi in limbajul lui real unora ca noi,vasta majoritate pe glob si univers,atunci misiunea lui ca avatar(cuvantul in trad din indiana=incarnare directa a lui Dumnezeu in forma umana)devine acea de dascal si te invata sa intelegi la acea anume viata din timp si istorie a lumii de ce a venit si revine si fiecare,pt. ca fiecare societate are un anume grad si nivel de dezvoltare materiala si spirituala,va avea in concordanta,anumite precepte pt. acea vreme,spuse de avatarul de atunci.

Iisus a fost acum 2000 ani,desigur,azi e alta viata si epoca,dar realul sens si mesaj este si va fi si a fost mereu acelasi spus in diverse forme,dar il vezi la fel si la primul avatar(Abraham),apoi Zoroaster,Rama,Krishna,Buddha ce au fost inaintea lui Iisus,si apoi si la Mohamed si in final Baba .Toti au trait intocmai preceptele sfinte,nu vei gasi niciodata in vietile lor o minciuna sau o greseala,astfel de "oameni" sunt avatarii lumii si ei formeaza un anume ciclu istoric,nimic in univers nu este intamplator!

Este destinat!
Sa fac o analogie simpla,gandeste ca tu esti profesor de facultate,oricare ar fi ea.Acum ai o varsta si o experienta de viata si munca si studii si cultura si intelepciune.Deodata te trezesti in fata unor copilasi de clasaIa primara si trebuie sa-i inveti ceea ce stii tu...oare crezi ca vei putea sa le explici in cuvintele tale si termenii la care ai ajuns in studii?In nici un caz!
Pt. ca NU te vor intelege,e ca si cum Einstein ar explica teoria lui unui copil de 7 ani!
Ce faci atunci sa fii inteles?Te cobori la mintea lui si folosesti....parabole,scurte istorioare,in cateva cuvinte(nu ca mine acum de scriu un roman deja!)sa fie pe intelesul lui si neaparat dai un ex. prin tine insuti altfel,la ce buna e vorba daca nu e sprijinita de fapta?

Si cam asa a fost mereu,mesajul mereu acelasi,f. simplu....dar omenirea nu s-a schimbat deloc!De aceea un avatar sa vina NU e de ajuns...

Vorbim mereu de Dumnezeu la cafenea si ce piosi suntem ori mistocari sau atotcunoscatori in de fapt inca si azi nu stim habar de nimic.
Eu zic asa: hai sa fim cu totii prieteni,sa ne iubim intre noi(hey!NU va ganditi acum la acel Ozzy din trecut fustangiu,okay?)si sa invatam unii de la altii si restul va veni de la sine.

E oare greu?De ce suparari si suferinte chiar aiurea?Oare merita efortul?Nu cred,ganditi acum ce-i mai important?Sa ne injuram unii pe altii ori sa ne iubim si daca odata soarta va fi sa ne puna fata-n fata pe unii din noi,ce fericire ar fi sa ne luam in brate !!!

NU am scris astea deloc cu idea si la adresa ta Destin ori Enigmescu ori oricine din lumea toata!Imi sunteti frati oricum si a va judeca nu-i bine,dar imi pot spune opinia si cine o accepta e okay.Nu am puterea de a judeca....sunt un nimica in acest univers dar asta sunt si chiar un nimica am dreptul sa vorbesc,dar niciodata ca un avatar!

Sper ca la un moment dat limbajul meu din trecut prin care am ofensat pe f. multi si pareri si opinii ce am avut nu au devenit treptat un mijloc de initiativa de exprimare pt. altii...stiu din experienta inca din...scoala generala...

Hey,acum nu vi-o luati in cap!Inca sunt mare fan al amicului Ozzy,port cele 4 perechi de shades(ochelari de soare pt. cei ce nu stiu slang american)trimise de Sharon,unii f. inchisi de soare puternic,altii albastii,altii purple altii pink.
Depinde cum e vremea ii port mereu,si in casa.
La fel imi place muzica lui,si rock si heavy metal si tech-industry,si desigur si The Doors,Motorhead etc.
Asta nu inseamna ca-s un depravat si drogat si antichrist!I am a free man si vreau in viata asta sa fiu cum sunt,in cea care vine poate voi fi cine stie in ce alta tara si poate femeie,poate saraca,poate f. bogata,doar karma stie si sanskaras,altadata va scriu ce-nseamna sanskaras ori samskaras.

Cert e ca sunt fericit cum ,sunt ca iubesc ca am trait din plin si gustat din multe placeri sexuale ale vietii,am suferit in Ro., am avut si clipe fericite acolo dar nu as mai trai acolo deloc.
Deci brothers and sisters,let's be friends,love is all you right was John Lennon.also a Baba Lover!
De la cine credeti ca au venit ideile lui "give peace a chance"si altele?De la cine credeti ca i-au venit ideile si filosofie si politica lui Mahatma Ghandi?
Cine credeti ca l-a invatat sa-si iubeasca aproapele, sa fie simplu dar puternic in gandire si fapta si mai ales onestitate?Cine credeti ca i-a spus ca unica solutie este rezolvarea oricaror probleme pe cale pasnica si prin .....LOVE&PEACE?

Cum am scris la inceputul romanului meu,e vorba despre aceste cuvinte ce in final sunt rezumatul a tot ce am scris acum.
Din pacate nu simt nevoia sa traduc...sper ca cine stie engleza si toti stiti,sunteti inteligenti,vor accepta asta:

"We do not want churches because they will teach us to quarrel about God,
as the catholics and protestants do.We do not want to learn that.
We may quarrel with men sometimes about things on this earth.But we never
quarrel about God.We do not want to learn that."

Chief Joseph(Nez Perce/1840-1904/Iroquois nations)

Nu stiu de ce am scris atatea cand acest mare intelept indian si mare CHIEF a spus totul in cateva cuvinte?

Destin,stii cum sunt fratii mei?Intelegi ce vor sa spuna doar privindu-te in ochi si la fel ii intelegi si tu...putine vorbe,multe doar prin gesturi.Un european ca noi ori chiar si....asa zis american.,da din gura mereu,ca mine,chestia e ca in prezenta lor sunt f. mut,nu am de ce vorbi cand ne putem intelege perfect prin liniste....a fi tacut...e o arta in final...mai vorbim si nu crede ca te-am criticat,ori pe numeni de altfel,departe de mine!!!

Black Sabbath/1972 - de Little Eagle la: 09/08/2004 02:32:40
(la: Muzica)
My boys & girls,

Here we go now,so just go fucking craaaazzzyyyy.What are you?
A bunch of dead people?Get up,I wanna see the roof falling apart,loud,loud,louder,louuudeeerr,I can't fuckin'hear you!What are you?Babies?So here we go now :

"Well people look and people stare
Well I don't think that I even care
You work your life away and what do they give?
You're only killing yourself to live
Killing yourself to live...

Just take a look around you,what do you see?
Pain ,suffering and misery
It's not the waythat the world was meant
It's a pitty you don't understand
Killing yourself to live.

You think that I'm crazy and baby
I know that it's true
Before that you know it I think
That you'll go crazy too

I don't know if I'm up or down
Whether black is white or blue is brown
The colours of my life are different somehow
Little boy blue's a big girl now.

So you think it's me who's strange
But you'vr never had to make the change
Never give your truist away
You'll end up paying'til your dying day...

Black Sabbath/Sabbath Bloody Sabbath/released in 1973

Shooting star - de Little Eagle la: 09/08/2004 20:00:38
(la: Vedete fara fitze)
He,He,Hey Daniele,
Every dog has his day.Ar mai fi o zicala scoasa pe acilea de un artist ce am cunoscut,Andy Warhol:"Everybody is entitled to 15 minutes of fame."
eu as spune o zicala de-a mea:"Faima este o exaltare a eului uman."
De ce zic de faima?Pt. ca e mana-n mana cu a fi un star,vedeta in domenii diverse ce intra in atentia publicului din lume.

Fitzele?They come with the teritory.Nu se poate altfel,inca o exaltare a vanitatii umane,pt. ca esti faimos si ce bine te simti mergand pe strada si oricine te recunoaste,iti da importanta,te simti cineva,esti mai presus de oricine.
desigur ca...acest ego ce te transforma in egomaniac,la unii/unele sunt very dangerous,dar in general se intampla cu staruri mici!

Acuma,sa pun o intrebare la cafegii:
Cati dintre voi au apucat cele 15 minute de faima in viata?
Fiti onesti.Mereu primesc vorbe de la voi cum ca scriu multe despre mine,dar daca am ce scrie si am trait unele experiente prin care voi nici prin vise n-ati trecut macar,de ce nu?E oare o greseala sau....imi dau aere si fac fitze de vedeta?

Timp de 11-12 ani am fost artist profesionist in comic books industy,in fiecare an am fost invitat ca guest artist(alaturi de cei mai mari si faimosi artisti in USA si Franta),am stat cu ei la mesele de invitati,ne-am etalat arta in original,eram cu sutele si cu miile erau amatori de arta si fani ai nostri.
Vindeam desene ori picturi si vindeam si semnaturile noastre ca autografe.
Uneori nu doream sa cerem bani de la copii,ci doar de la maturi,dar am semnat personal mii de autografe in acei ani,si cel putin mergeam de 4-5 ori la conventii ca invitata de onoare si artist!Am avut mai mult de 15 min. de faima....
Pot spune ca m-am simtit tare bine fiind faimos!!!!!Mai ales cand cineva (colectionar)ca Tim Robbins+Susan Sarrandon,sau Patrick Swayze,se opresc la masa ta si admira arta ce faci,iti spune ca citeste revistele la care lucrezi si-ti admira arta si vrea autograful tau si chiar iti cumpara un desen in creion sau tus....oare nu te gadila putin la ego asta???

Esti un super star!Cei dintre voi care nu ati avut astfel de experiente,nu stiti ce vorbesc,dar discutati ca si cum ati fi atot stiutori.
Cine dintre voi a fost luat in cravasa si primit castane in cap de la Robert de Niro????Si credeti ca mi-a fost jena de faptul de a fi roman cand ma alerga prin atelierul unui artist,f. bun prieten (american)ce mi-a fost de altfel nas la nunta,si cand ma prindea in cravasa imi zicea:"Oh you crazy romanian.Bloody vampire."la misto,si asta pt. ca de cum il vedeam ii ziceam:
"You're talking to me?...Are you talking to me.?"Cine a vazut Taxi Driver stie ce vorbesc.

Oare nu te simti mare cand astfel de HUGE STARS in lume iti dau o importanta?Si sa stiti ca Bobby e f. modest!!!!!!Ori Martin Sheen,care mereu imi zicea ca-l fac sa rada,pe el l-am cunoscut demult fiind la niste demonstratii impotriva lui Bush senior si asta de azi,un mare democrat si chiar a fost arestat de cateva ori pt. parerile lui!

Ii spuneam mereu:"Martin,...should never get off the boat..."cine a vazut Apocalypse now stie ce spun acum.
Il facea sa rada,mereu interesat in Romania si credeti-ma ca am fost un f. bun ambasador al ei cu acesti oameni.
Dar unii din voi ma criticati mereu,ma puneti la zid,dar ce sa fac?Vorbesc si eu despre mine,imi pare rau ca voi nu aveti nimic de spus,pt. ca vietile voastre n-au fost asa de pline de sare si piper ca a mea.Sper sa aveti candva sansa la cele 15 min. de faima si mai vorbim atunci,okay?

Un alt om interesant si desigur faimos cred ca si pe Marte, de ar exista locuitori acolo,ar fi Keith Richards,de o modestie fara seaman!La fel David Bowie,Ozzy(cel real),David Gilmore,Brad Pitt,Alec Baldwin,(nasul meu-Bill Wray,faimos ilustrator de desene animate in USA)mi-a scris recent un email,si intre altele zis ca a avut sapt. trecuta lunch cu Alec Baldwin si Paul Stanley(pt. cei ce nu stiu,ghitaristul si vocals la KISS).

Bill cunoaste multe staruri in Hollywood,el s-a reintors in CA unde s-a nascut,din NY in 1992.El m-a introdus in NY sa-l cunosc pe Keith Richards,si desigur Bobby de Niro.

Asa ca asta mi-a fost norocul.

Pe alte dati sometimes in the future.

i was hanging from a tree
unaccustomed to such violence
jesus looking down on me
i'm prepared for one big silence...

haemoglobin is the key... si jur, -rogu-va iertati-mi incultura- ca e prima data cand o ascult.

e destul de ciudat, nu? o comunitate virtuala, intri, salut, salut, santosi? voinici? conferinte, ce cuvintele mari, oameni remarcabili banuiesc...
ia sa... carti, muzica, filme. probabil in orice forum majoritatea internautilor mai intai isi definesc astfel identitatea.. mai mult pentru ei, o siguranta aburinda a sinelui care sa le confirme lor si interesatilor geniul ascuns/neinteles din urmatoarele posturi. poate...
orice conversatie incepe invartindu-se in viciul gusturilor, apoi al barfelor, povestilor, mai mutl sau mai putin personale, evolutia este apreciabila... amintiri, da, urmeaza amintirile, zambetele si in final vietile (pe)trecute impreuna cu alte amintiri... frumoase.. tin minte, as good as it gets... pretty stories that take place at lakes with boats and friends and noodle salad. Just not anybody in this car...
in fine, deviind pe strazi plouate, a voastra pururea virtuala, aievea.
Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004), fotograf - OMAGIU - de ovidiusimina la: 11/08/2004 10:54:33
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
« Au fond, ce n’est pas la photo en soi qui
m’interesse. Ce qui je veux c’est de capter une
fraction de seconde du réel »

Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004)

Kingdoms of the world in a moment

Aug 5th 2004, From The Economist print edition

Henri Cartier-Bresson, whose photographs defined the
20th century, died on August 3rd at the age of 95

ALTHOUGH his name was familiar almost everywhere, far
more so indeed than his work, Henri Cartier-Bresson
himself was not a familiar sight. With his alert blue
eyes and a coloured handkerchief knotted round his
neck, he would wander the streets near his home on
Paris's rue de Rivoli and seldom be recognised. One of
the greatest photographers of the 20th century was
himself rarely photographed.

In his lifetime, he travelled to all corners of the
earth, capturing images of some of the most
extraordinary moments of 20th-century history—the
Spanish civil war, the liberation of Paris after the
second world war and the funeral of Mahatma Gandhi. At
the same time he framed and preserved less famous
moments, elevating them with his genius so that they
somehow seemed to capture the essence of life itself.

His unequalled ability to seize a millisecond in time
was uncanny. In his book “The Decisive Moment”,
published in 1952, he wrote: “It is the simultaneous
recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the
significance of an event as well as a precise
organisation of forms, which give that event its
proper expression.” He was never very interested in
the technology of photography, in the effects that
could be obtained during developing and editing in a
dark room. It was all about the thrill of the chase,
the chance to seize a moment.

The man who first inspired Mr Cartier-Bresson was a
photographer called Martin Munkacsi, whose picture of
naked African boys running into Lake Tanganyika in
1931 persuaded him to take photography seriously. “I
couldn't believe that such a thing could be caught on
camera,” he said, “so I grabbed my Leica and went out
into the street.”

Between 1932 and 1935, he lived rough in Italy, Mexico
and Spain where he took some of his most memorable
images. Back in Paris he worked with Jean Renoir, a
film director, and ended up playing the unlikely role
of an English servant in the director's masterpiece,
“La Règle du Jeu”. He was a prisoner-of-war for three
years, and after the war was one of the founders of
the Magnum agency, a trail-blazing photographers'
co-operative. In 1948 he went on the road again,
mostly to India and China (in time for the fall of
Chiang Kai-shek), in an age when the images of
photojournalists like him filled the pages of picture
magazines that were, in the pre-television era,
hungrily viewed by millions.

Unassuming genius
For the last quarter of a century, Mr Cartier-Bresson
eschewed photography, taking only the occasional
snapshot of friends and family, and turning his
attention to drawing. (He trained originally as a
painter, his early work influenced by his friend, the
surrealist artist Max Ernst.) He maintained that he
scarcely wanted to discuss photography any more. “It's
like when you're divorced”, he said, “and people keep
asking about your former wife. There's something
indecent about it.”

He settled into a quiet life in France—in Paris and in
the small house that he owned for some 30 years in the
Lubéron, a region in the south of the country, to the
east of Avignon. And there he died on Tuesday August
3rd, just less than three weeks away from his 96th

Mr Cartier-Bresson always said that to be a great
photographer you had to be unintrusive. “For me,
photography is very much a physical pleasure—it's like
hunting, except that we don't kill.” At the height of
his career he would stalk his subjects, and his quarry
would often be unaware that it had been captured on
film. His desire to remain out of the limelight stayed
with him to the end, including his wish to hold back
the world's photographers from the funeral of one of
the greatest of them.

His funeral was a private affair attended by some 50
family and close friends. Only after it had ended did
the French Ministry of Culture make an official
announcement of his death. And the next day, August
5th, many of his most famous images were splashed
across the front pages of newspapers the world over: a
woman slapping an informer she recognises at a
deportation camp in Dessau in 1945; Muslim women in
Srinagar, Kashmir, praying to the sun as it rises over
the distant Himalayas; and a French family picnicking
by the River Marne in 1938, almost a last pre-war
moment of stillness.

Of Mr Cartier-Bresson's death, President Jacques
Chirac said: “With him, France loses a genius
photographer, a true master, and one of the most
gifted artists of his generation.” But it is not only
France's loss. Mr Cartier-Bresson's fame, which grew
despite his efforts to avoid it, reminds a much wider
world of its persistent admiration for unassuming
genius, and of the dwindling stock of targets for that
