Alan Parsons Project - Eye in the sky

Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of chances before
But I ain't gonna give any more
Don't ask me
That's how it goes
'Cause part of me knows what you're thinking...
Don't say words you're gonna regret
Don't let the fire rush to your head
I've heard the accusaation before
And I ain't gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
Iam the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that I can read your mind, I can read your mind

Don't leave false illusions behind
Don't cry 'cause I ain't changing my mind
Soo find another fool like before
'Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies while all of the signs are deceivïng

Lenny Kravitz - Can't get you off my mind

Life is just a lonely highway
I'm out here on the open road
I'm old enough to see behind me
But young enough to feel my soul
I don't wanna lose you baby
And I don't wanna be alone
Don't wanna live my days without you
But for now I've got to be without you

I've got a pocket full of money
And pocket full of keys that have no bounds
But then I think of lovin'
And I just can't get you off of my mind

Babe can't you see
That this is killing me
I don't want to push you baby
And I don't want you to be told
It's just that I can't breathe without you
Feel like I'm gonna lose control

I've got a pocket full of money oh yes I do
And a pocket full of keys that have no bounds
But when it comes to lovin'
I just can't get you off of my mind, yeaaah

Am I a fool to think that there's a little hope
Yeah yeahhhhhheee yeah
Tell me baby, yeah
What are the rules the reasons and the do's and don'ts
Yeah yeahhhhhheee yeah
Tell me baby tell me baby, yeah
What do you feel inside?

I've got a pocket full of money
And a pocket full of keys that have no bounds
Oh yeah
But when it comes down to lovin'
I just can't get you off of my mind, yeah
I just can't get you off of my mïnd, yeah.

Everything you can imagine is real

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

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

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

Orig. a Hebrew of the kingdom of Judah, as opposed to those of the ten tribes
of Israel; later, any Israelite who adhered to the worship of Jehovah as
conducted at Jerusalem. Applied comparatively rarely to the ancient nation
before the exile (cf. HEBREW sb. 1), but the commonest name for contemporary
or modern representatives of this group, now spread throughout the world. The
word `Jew' is also applied to groups, e.g. the Falashas in Ethiopia, not
ethnically related to persons of the main European groups, the Ashkenazim and
the Sephardim.

1974 J. R. BAKER Race xiv. 234 From the traditional religious point of view, a
Jew was a person born of a Jewish mother, but this formula suffers from the
defect that the defined word is included in adjectival form in the definition.
The same flaw occurs in part of the new definition enacted by the Israeli
Parliament in..1970, according to which a person is a Jew if he or she is the
offspring of a Jewish mother or has been converted to the Jewish faith by the
Orthodox Rabbinate or by the Rabbis of the Jewish Reform Movement or by the
Rabbis of the Jewish Conservative Movement.

In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious

Uite ce-ascult de cateva zile - de Alice la: 09/12/2003 01:42:25
(la: Cohen)
...sperand ca n-am innebunit de-a binelea ...

"Is this what you wanted?"( de pe Miscellaneous)

You were the promise at dawn,
I was the morning after.
You were Jesus Christ my Lord,
I was the money lender.
You were the sensitive woman,
I was the very reverend Freud.
You were the manual orgasm,
I was the dirty little boy.

And is this what you wanted
to live in a house that is haunted
by the ghost …of you and me?

Is this what you wanted ...

You were Marlon Brando,
I was Steve McQueen.
You were K.Y. Jelly,
I was Vaseline.
You were the father of modern medicine,
I was Mr. Clean.
You where the whore and the beast of Babylon,
I was Rin Tin Tin.

And is this what you wanted ...

And is this what you wanted ...

You got old and wrinkled,
I stayed seventeen.
You lusted after so many,
I lay here with one.
You defied your solitude,
I came through alone.
You said you could never love me,
I undid your gown.

And is this what you wanted ...

And is this what you wanted ...

I mean is this what you wanted ...

That's right, is this what you wanted!

Asa, citite, versurile n-au mare farmec ...dar sa-l auzi cum pronunta ...cum accentueaza silabele.
Daca l-ati auzi!!!

"I’m your man!" n-am auzit alta declaratie de dragoste!
Ba da, in "Dance me...", in "Thake this", in "Coming back to you", in "Ain’t no cure" ..."and when the hunger for your touch rises from the hunger whisper "You have loved enough,
Now let me be the Lover."
STIU ca nu-i vorba doar de-atingere fizica! Nu va lasati pacaliti! sunt ceva abia atunci atunci cand Cohen canta!

zici: "Eu numesc decent salariul care îti permite sa manânci si sa ai un acoperis. "

My, mancarea si acoperisul tin de supravietuirea de pe o zi pe alta.

Dar imbracamintea si incaltamintea, medicamentele, tratamentele medicale, concediile, cartile si cultura, mijloacele de informatie, amintirile, educatia personala si a copiilor, astea nu tin de un trai decent?

Deja vrei cam multe pentru termenul decent. Ai uitat sa adaugi un Lamborghini Diablo. De acord cu îmbracamintea, în rest tratamentul medical vine de la stat (daca esti socotit prea sarac), în concedii esti ocupat sa muncesti ca sa ai un salariu mai bun, nu ai nici un copil de educat pentru simplul motiv ca nu faci copii pâna nu ai un salar care sa-i tina si pe ei "decent" (deocamdata vorbim despre venitul unei persoane singure, nici macar în cuplu), educatia personala se poate amâna pâna la zile mai bune.

In principiu ai si tu dreptate însa ceea ce întelegi tu prin "decent" e mult mai interpretabil (de la 1.000 la 1000.000 $) decât reperul meu de "decenta".

Oricum am impresia ca discutia nu duce nicaieri din cauza acestui termen super-flu, decent.

(la: Romani in strainatate)
hello MY,

NU,nu sint celebrul mega rock star,sint un mare fan al lui inca din 1970, cind era cu faimosul grup Black Sabbath...daca ai auzit cumva de el?Ori daca ai trait in acei ani?In fine ,intrebarile tale mi-au atras atentia si pot spune ca
m-au si deranjat mult,NO offense though!Ai libertatea de a te exprima si a-ti scrie parerile si gindurile si la fel oricine,deci si eu.
Si s-o luam de la prima intrebare,your back is against the wall.

1.) OH YES,YES,YES!!!!Am plecat cu inima mai usoara ca fulgul acum 23 ani din Buc.Ro,cel mai fericit om din lume!Nici azi inca nu-mi vine sa cred ca sint in USA
si mi-am REALIZAT SINGUR toate visele mele ce NU le-as fi putut realiza nici in trecut dar nici in prezent in RO.!!!!Spune-mi UNDE poti cistiga din arta ta
$10.000-$12.000 pe luna? IN Romania?Asa ca zilnic ma scol si multumesc din suflet Lui Dzeu pt. soarta mea ca m-a adus aici si ca am scapat de mizeria comunista in care am trait.Inima imi este inca f. usoara!!!!!

2.) OH,YES YES AND YES!!!READ MY LIPS!Chiar daca am avut vreo 4-6 ani de greutati la inceput,am stiut ca ma voi realiza in USA!Si daca vrei sa cunosti raspunsul la intrebare citeste raspunsul la prima!
Am o familie superba si o sotie minunata italianca-americana.Desigur ca sintem fericiti de 14 ani de la casatorie si avem si o vila superba in mijlocul naturii in New Jersey si la citeve minute de mers pe jos la plaja Atlanticului.
As fi avut asa ceva in RO?NOOOO!!!Poate as fi stat la ocean visind dintr-un atlas de geografie.

3.)My dear MY,colacii i-am facut eu prin multa munca,ciini sint destui in Ro. pe toate strazile.Crezi oare ca m-a interesat CE voi gasi la colt de strada in USA?
Nu cred ca-ti imaginezi nici in vise cit de fericit eram si sint ca traiesc aici!
Oare nu crezi ca unii oameni AU un anume destin al lor ce-i cheama in alte tari?Unde se regasesc de fapt si unde ar fi trebuit sa fie de la inceput? Asa simt eu in mine.Ciini exista peste tot in lume ,colacii tii faci singur(a).

4.)Hey,sa nu gindim acum din p.d.v. personal,adica al tau!
Eu sint de parere ca NU e bine sa te dai destept sau snob ORIUNDE TRAIESTI in lume,dar e o chestie ce eu o consider de experienta de viata si fiecare o are pe a lui sau ei,la fel cum eu o am pe a mea.
NU MA CONSIDER DELOC DESTEPT dar nici imbecil sau prost!
In Romania am terminat liceul Tonitza si incercat de 5 ori la Grigorescu,NU am avut....acele pile necesare si nimic altceva decit talentul meu inascut.
CUM se face oare ca vin in USA si dupa 1 an cea mai prestigioasa scoala de arte din New York,Art Students League fondata in 1894 si unde au studiat unii din cei mai mari artisti ai lumii,daca ai auzit de Andy Warhol,jasper Jones,
Jackson Pollock,Frank Stella,Alexander Calder etc. primesc bursa de studii pe 4 ani acordata ...DOAR pe arta mea si FARA examene de orice fel?O comisie de prof. ilustrii m-au admis IMEDIAT!!!
Poate ca-s mai destept ori talentat ca MULTI din cei ramasi in Ro.Tu ce crezi,ori oricine va citi mesajul meu?
Si apoi cum se face ca am devenit un artist faimos si cu NUME aici timp de 12 ani in arta de benzi desenate,pt. cea mai mare companie din lume,Marvel Comics?Stii cum am ajuns sa fiu ales?Am mers intr-o buna zi acolo cu 7 schite in creion si acuarela si Stan Lee ,presedintele companiei inca din 1945,s-a uitat la ele ,HABAR NU AVEA de mine,dar mi-a zis ca -s f. talentat si PE LOC a ales o schita si mi-a spus chiar atunci s-o pictez caci o va tipari ca ,coperta la una din reviste si era CONAN the barbarian!Au urmat altele si altele si alte reviste renumite si am fost mereu invitat ca GUEST ARTIST la zeci si zeci de conventii in tara si semnat autografe,caci am avut si inca am multi fani!
Oare ma consider ...destept?Crezi ca in Ro. as fi avut sansele astea?
Si apoi din de 7 ani am parasit B.D. si sint in prezent un artist de succes creind si ilustrind storyboards pt. reclame TV ce le vad cu ochii mei pe toate canalele posibile in USA.Fara ele nu se face aici o reclama TV.!
Oare sint mai destept?NU! Ceea ce sint este munca mea de unul singur si fara ajutor si pile si legaturi si nume!
Cind am dat portfoliul meu ca sa lucrez pt. TV,M-AU ALES pt. TALENTUL meu,
dupa multe luni apoi am aflat ca au fost peste 200 candidati pe UN SINGUR POST!!!Si asta l-am cistigat eu si FARA examinari,doar aratind arta mea!
Oare sint mai destept ?Poate sint in adevar si nu-mi dau seama dar un lucru e CERT: NU AS FI ceea ce sint azi daca as fi ramas in RO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tu ai viata ta si e treaba ta ce faci cu ea dar cred ca este decent sa NU critici pe NIMENI din afara ca toti am trecut prin thick and thin oriunde traim azi si daca ne-am facut un rost si sintem fericiti este alegerea noastra,
poate unii n-au reusit ca mine sau altii dar totusi merita respect pt. ca au avut curajul de a incepe o noua viata de la inceput fara frica si fara a se plinge,noi
si sper ca nu aduc ofense nimanui acum,romannii din strainatate sintem ALT ALUAT,sintem ceea ce as numi the fittest of the fittest,o rasa anume de oameni,tari in caracter si suflet ce am stiut ca va fi greu dar totusi am facut un pas ce multi ca tine NU vor face,pt. ca cei ramasi in RO sint destinati sa traiasca acolo si asta e in final viata,cum iti e scris asa traiesti.

5.)YES,YES YES,tzatza Veta avea gura stirba aurita!Daca NU CREZI IN TINE desigur ca nimic nu va fi posibil si NU ai realiza nimic si ..realitatea ar fi mereu neagra de nori grei..."don't delay you're in today but tomorrow is another dream"ca sa -l exemplific pe Ozzy intr-unul din cintecele scrise de el.Miine devine ieri si va fi un alt vis in iluzia vietii de scurta durata si se va pierde in ..trecut.dar de ce nu mi-as cladi visul meu acolo unde vreau?
Deci traieste-ti visul tau in RO. si eu pe al meu in USA.Fair enough?
Si DA,TZATZA Ozzy iti spune ca ESTE suficient SA CRED in ceva si ...HOP realitatea ,nu doar ca se ajusteaza dupa ce cred eu dar DEVINE un fapt real in viata mea!

Cred ca te-am lamurit si daca uneori tonul meu il consideri dur,imi cer iertare,la fel tuturor celor ce vor citi ce am scris si s-ar simti ofensati.Am spus doar adevarul din perspectiva mea si experienta mea de viata,nimic mai mult.

De ce inca dupa 14 ani jurnalistii care spun adevarul si descriu situatia jalnica si coruptia sint omoriti batuti si amenintati ? De ce arabii chinejii si toate rasele care se perinda pe la noi aiurea sint lasati sa-si construiasca firme asta in detrimentul romanilor cinstiti, cu 1000 de dolari, dupa care pun la cale tot felul de scheme gen capuse in care fura statul roman in ultima instanta tragindu-i o palma lui si noua tuturor romanilor aratindu-ne cit de prosti sintem noi si cit de destepti sint ei...Altfel totu-i bine si creem in continuare portaluri din "gaga land" .Nu lua personal cea ce ti-am scris dar multi din diaspoara agream cu cele de mai sus

"Prietena" ta din australia - Nicidata nu o sa stii sigur ce are ea acolo , pina nu te duci sa vezi cu ochii tai.
Cum de ai realizat ca nu are NIMIC?Nu purta brands haine sau nu arunca cu bani in stinga si in dreapta, nu ti-a adus un cadou?
Nu inteleg...
Nu cred ca ti-e prietena....prietenii nu vorbesc asa unii despre altii...
Asta e parerea unei femei (chiar daca sintem renumita sa birfim)

Nu stiu cum e pe la voi in GE sau in USA,dar in UK pt un new buyer este forte greu sa primeasca un mortgage (primesti de 3 ori venitul pe an , dar nu e deajuns sa-ti ei casa preturile sint f mari aici)
..solutia e te costa mult...deci mai usor e sa iei imprumut, cel putin investesti si stii ca peste 20 de ani ai proprietatea ta
Cei cu salarii mici au chirie...

Andre ai dreptat cel mai bine e sa investesi in proprietatii...
Noi ne-am dublat valorea casei in 3 ani!!!!
Bineinteles ca am modernizat-o si am pus bani in ea...

Sa stii ca vreau sa iua un alt imprumut sa cumpar o a doua casa si sa o inchriez(chiria va plati pt loan)....
Asta nu ma face milionar de o femeie inteligenta

Eu nu va inlege pe cafenea....subiectul e cit va ramine din salariu...deci sa vorbim despre bani...
Si daca vorbim inseamna ca nu ne laudam...

Eu nu as putea sa duc viata pe care o duc daca as trai singura(am sot iteligent, deci bogat) mi-ar ajunge bani( desi cistig multi) .... ar trebui sa-mi schimb stilul de trai...

Nu poti sa spui ca noi in uk avem ce avem pt ca avem stii asta
Eu nu-mi cumpar decit ce imi permit din salariul niciodata nu i-am cerut bani sotului nici bancii...

Hai sa admitem aproape orice fiinta umana (in timpurile pe care le traim astazi)vrea sa traiasca mai bine....

Banii si fotografia - de Dinu Lazar la: 20/04/2004 01:00:53
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
The Getty Images Money Machine
The popular daily newspaper, USA Today, recently published a copyrighted article (by Byron Acohido) about the top stock photography agency in the world, Getty Images. Although the article focused on tracing Getty's successful rise to the top of the industry, it revealed some interesting numbers. Especially if you are considering working for the company as a freelancer.
First of all, let me reiterate my personal philosophy that I believe good
stock photography is the result of a photographer's (amateur or pro) abiding interest in specific subject areas. For example, wildlife, medicine,
education, children, aviation, sports, and so on. The resulting photographs have the opportunity to be both art and documentary. Eventually they may have historical significance and grow as an asset for a photographer's heirs. In the meantime, if the photographer finds matching markets for his or her interest areas, profits can be made.
If this is your worldview also, then you'll want to turn and run if a Getty recruiter asks you to be part of their freelancer team. Here's why.
I don't pretend to be an economics wizard, but in Pilgrim's Pride
Elementary School, I was pretty good at arithmetic. I think you'll agree
with me that the numbers presented in the USA Today article do not look pretty for freelancers.
They spin out like this.
The 2003 Getty Images gross revenue was $523.2 million, with net income of $64 million. (88% operating costs; 12% net profit). The author is quoted as saying 83% of Getty Images sales comes from freelancers. That's $434,256 ,000 in freelancer photos. Getty gives 40% of that to the freelancers.
That's $173,702,400 .
Getty has 2,500 freelancers (contributors), according to the author. That's $69,480.96 annually to a freelancer, or $190.36 per day (365/yr.).
Running a stock photo business can get to be a marathon, and get to be
expensive. Using Getty Image's own costs/net income ratio (88/12), that
would reduce a freelancer's $69,480.96 gross down to $8,337.72 net annually, or $22.84 per day. But since freelancers are known to be frugal, and government RMA annual statement studies show entrepreneurs to be Spartan,
let's lower the cost percentage (to 76%), and double the net income figure to 24% and make it $45.68 per day, ($5.75 per hour for an 8-hour day).
To produce images, most of your costs are going to be eaten up in camera equipment, travel costs, insurance, lodging and meals.

Medical analysis - de Horia D la: 18/05/2004 11:02:15
(la: Banc: doi mosi pe o banca...)

One day, in line at the cafeteria, Bob says to Stanley behind him, "My elbow hurts like hell. I guess I better see a doctor."

"Listen, you don't have to spend that kind of money," Stan replies "There's a diagnostic computer down at Wal-Mart. Just give it a urine sample and the computer'll tell you what's wrong and what to do about it. It takes ten seconds and costs ten dollars...a lot cheaper than a doctor."

So Bob deposits a urine sample in a small jar and takes it to Wal-Mart. He
deposits ten dollars, and the computer lights up and asks for the urine sample. He pours the sample into the slot and waits. Ten seconds later, the computer ejects a printout:

"You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will improve in two weeks."

That evening while thinking how amazing this new technology was, Jack began wondering if the computer could be fooled. He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and masturbated into the mixture for good measure.

Bob hurries back to Wal-Mart, eager to check the results. He deposits ten dollars, pours in his concoction, and waits.

The computer prints the following:
1. Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener.
2. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with anti-fungal shampoo.
3. Your daughter has a cocaine habit. Get her into rehab...
4. Your wife is pregnant. Twins. They aren't yours. Get a lawyer.
5. If you don't stop playing with yourself, your elbow will never get better.

And, as always, thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.
Is it just my Imagination? pt. Ozzy - de LMC la: 22/06/2004 01:01:50
Is it just my imagination or have we finally found a common ground? Are we actually agreeing on something or is it just wishful thinking on my part? :-)

To All my brothers and sisters - de Little Eagle la: 27/06/2004 03:56:25
(la: Native American Indians)
Pt. ca nu veti mai avea de-a face cu mine de acum incolo,va las sa zic asa o mica mostenire din credinta poporului meu.Aceste cuvinte ,sper ca vor gasi un ecou in sufletul vostru.
Din nou si nu fac nici o reclamatie impotriva Admin,sper ca va tipari tot ce am scris azi,am zis,macar ca fiind ultimele mele cuvinte si consider ca am dreptul la ele.Unora li se da o masa buna,si poate o tigara ori o ultima rugaciune.Nu mai fumez,Nu mai beau,Nu mai consum droguri,Nu mananc carne de nici un fel
sunt vegetarian.
Cel putin lasa-ma Admin sa-mi spun ultimele cuvinte,in mod decent si sa nu fiu cenzurat.
Nu-ti fie teama,NU voi spune nimic rau nimanui!

Acestea-s cuvintele mele venite de la poporul meu,macar acum lasa-ma sa vorbesc freely:
Imi pare rau ca nu am rabdarea si timpul de a traduce in R. din engleza,totusi stiu ca voi toti sunteti inteligenti si veti intelege totul.

"When you begin a great work you can't expect to finish it all at once;therefore do you and your brothers press on,and let nothing discourage you till you have entirely finished what you have begun?
Now brother,as for me,I assure you I will press on,and the contrary winds may blow strong in my face,yet I will go forward and never turn back,and continue to press forward untill I have finished,and I would have you do the same....
Though you may hear birds singing on this side and that side,you must not take notice of that,but hear me when I speak to you,and take it to heart,
for you may always depend that what I say shall be true."

Black Hawk(Sauk-Lakota)

" Grandfather says that when your friends die you must not cry.
You must not hurt anybody or do harm to anybody.You must not fight.Do right always.It will give you satisfaction in life.
If the white man wants to live in peace with the indian,he can live in peace.
Give them all the same law.Give them all a chance to live and grow.
All men were made by the same Great Spirit Chief.They are all brothers.
The earth is the Mother of all people,and all people should have equal rights upon it.
You might as well expect the rivers to run backward as that any man who was
born a free man should be contented when penned up and denied liberty to go where he pleases.
If you tie a horse to a stake,do you expect he will grow fat?
If you pen an indian up on a small spot of earth,and compell him to stay there,he will not be contented,nor will he grow and prosper."

Chief Joseph(Nez Perce)



Ps:Admin inca odata te rog sa publici tot ce am scris azi.
Adios muchachos.
