de "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" ("Minuit dans le jardin du bien et du mal "), de care vorbea Pasagerul mai jos, nu pot spune nimic pt ca nu l-am vazut;
Vitas-Starry River - de just.a.touch la: 31/12/2009 15:10:57
(la: Muzica)

A starry river of the sky...
Parting on the map...
I love you but for the time being
"Farewell" I say, "farewell"
I am the one who burns bridges
And I don't hear prayers
I am frightened to come down
To the ground from proud heights

In the age of sorrow and losses
We are both unhappy
The light of earthly icon-lamps may go out
But not the stars
We go away from ourselves
Into bad weather and growth
But the fate is determined
By the stars, by the stars

Even the starry ocean
Is unstable today
Our cosmic love affair
Is over, is over...
A starry river of the sky...
Parting on the map...
I love you but for the time being
"Farewell" I say, "farewell"

Those lucid eyes of yours
Are beautiful like stars
Days and voices may fade out
But not the stars...
A starry river of the sky...
Parting on the map...
I love you but for the time being
"Farewell" I say, "farewell"

Take this waltz - de Daniel Racovitan la: 08/12/2003 03:47:22
(la: Cohen)
Uite o piesa, nush' dac'ai ascultat-o, e superbissima: "Take this waltz"... O pun pe picior de egalitate cu "Dance me..."
Un colaj de imagini halucinant, o [poezie] de [dragoste] deosebita:


"TAKE THIS WALTZ
--after Lorca

Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry
There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
There's a tree where the doves go to die
There's a piece that was torn from the morning
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws

Oh I want you, I want you, I want you
On a chair with a dead magazine
In the cave at the tip of the lily
In some hallways where love's never been
On a bed where the moon has been sweating
In a cry filled with footsteps and sand
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take its broken waist in your hand

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
With its very own breath of brandy and Death
Dragging its tail in the sea

There's a concert hall in Vienna
Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking
They've been sentenced to death by the blues
Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
With a garland of freshly cut tears?
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz it's been dying for years


There's an attic where children are playing
Where I've got to lie down with you soon
In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
In the mist of some sweet afternoon
And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow
All your sheep and your lilies of snow
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
With its "I'll never forget you, you know!"

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz ...

And I'll dance with you in Vienna
I'll be wearing a river's disguise
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thighs
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
With the photographs there, and the moss
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
My cheap violin and my cross
And you'll carry me down on your dancing
To the pools that you lift on your wrist
Oh my love, Oh my love
Take this waltz, take this waltz
It's yours now. It's all that there is."


Si iata si o comparatie cu poezia lui Lorca, dupa care Cohen spune ca s-a inspirat:

Cea mai mare comunitate de romani, Oare in Cleveland - de (anonim) la: 24/02/2004 09:21:42
(la: Romani in Ohio, SUA)
Nu stiu daca matale cunosti orasul Cleveland. In primul rind comunitatile de Romani din Detroit, Chicago sau New York, sint cu mult mai mari decit cel din Cleveland.
Sa trecem la oras.
Este un oras foarte frumos, cu nimica nu este mai urit decit alte orase Americane. Are o asezare fantastica pe malul lacului Erie, cu 10 de mile de Metro Parcuri, cu Suburbi care pot fi invidiate nu numai de orasele din America dar si de orasele din Europa, sa mentionez citeva suburbi cunoscute in toata lumea: Shaker Heights, Cleveland Heights, Brathenal, Pepper Pike, Rocky-River etc. Aceste suburbi se eau la intrecere cu oricare cartier de Ambasde din lume.
Arhitectura centrului este foarte contemporan si la nivel ridicat estetic, printre Arhitecti care s-au lasat amprentele in oras merita de amintit: Marcel Breuer, Frank Ghery, Vasarely, Pei etc.
Sa trecem la viata culturala.
Orasul , are o viata culturala foarte veche cu traditi bine inradacinate in Oras, multe orase din lume ar vrea sa aibe ce are Clevelandul, si anume:
Opera, Ballet, Orchestra Symphonica,multe orchestre de camera, peste 30 de jazz cluburi, multe teatre de drama, doua Universitati de renume mondial ca: John Carrol, Case Western U., Ohio si Cleveland State University, Kent University, Baldwin Wallace University si sa nu uitam Oberlin University.
Are nenumarate Muzee de renume Mondial ca: Cleveland Art Museum, Cleveland Natural Science museum, Western Reserve Museum, Cleveland Automobil Museum etc. Are doua Gradini Botanice ( Cleveland Botanical Garden si Rockeffeler Gardens), si este singurul oras din lume unde fiecare etnicitate din oras are gradina ei, inclus si Romanii, intrun Parc imense de 5 km lungime. Orasul mai are si Cleveland Clinic si University Hospital, unicati in lume.
Ca sa nu mai vorbim de viata sportiva din oras, Cleveland Browns, CAVS, si Cleveland Indians.Nu departe de Cleveland este unul din cele mai mari Arboretumuri din Lume, The Holden Arboretum.
Toate astea ce am amintit mai sus nu da semn ca orasul este sarac sau mizerabil. Ca este mizerie, da este ca in or ce Metropola, dar asta nu se generalizeaza la intregul oras si nici cartierul de mizerie in care ai trait probabil. Crezi ca in Paris sau Londra sau Bucuresti, nu sint cartiere de mizerie, numai de Lux, nu cred.

e chiar nevoie sa devii...popular? - de Little Eagle la: 28/02/2004 23:36:49
(la: Cum poti deveni un personaj popular?)
Nu stiu ce inseamna"pashunist",poate nu inteleg si timpul m-a uitat in trecut inainte de multe romanisme.Ceea ce stiu este ca personal NU fac deloc o parada din Romania si daca am discutat ceva despre tara natala a fost doar fiind intrebat
din curiozitatea prietenilor ce NU-S romani.Un lucru insa mereu am spus:ca Romania e de origine LATINA si nu ..slavica si DA,este adevarat ca am facut o mindrie din asta,dar nicidecum din cirnati ori sarmale sau tuica de 2 prune!
Daniel,personal am avut o mare revelatie si sansa de a fi in apt. in Dakotta Bldg,
si stat de vorba cu un celebru compozitor si muzician al lumii,Leonard Bernstein si NU eu am adus vorba despre Romania,ci chiar el insusi.El a fost primul care descoperind accentul meu strain m-a intrebat de unde sint,si am zis Bucuresti...
imediat a fost chiar exaltat si a zis:Oh! Enesco,Brancusi despre care stia mai multe ca mine!Si DA,in acele momente am fost fericit ca sint roman!!!!!
In plus fiind in prezenta unei faime si mare compozitor si muzician al lumii la rindul meu am simtit o bucurie de a fi roman,si NU am vorbit amindoi despre cirnati si tuica si nici chiar despre...Dracula.
Am vorbit despre arta romaneasca ce a admirat-o f. mult,un om f. deschis si REAL
fara a se da...mare...
Am mai avut o alta ocazie de a vorbi cu un sculptor celebru in lume,Armand si la fel ...el a deschis discutia despre Romania.La fel si cu Andy Warhol la sediul lui in NY aproape de Hudson River,numit atunci"The Factory".Acesti oameni desigur,f. cultivati au cunoscut destule despre Romania si NU mi-a venit sa cred!Eu cred ca Romania vorbeste prin sine fara ca noi,cei romani francezi sau americani etc
trebuie sa facem vreo propaganda turistica si chiar daca au auzit desigur de un Ilie Nastase sau Nadia Comaneci,cel putin in sfera mea de relatii si prieteni ei ar fi cei mai putin discutati.
pt. ca daca a existat un Picasso de ex. si America a auzit de el,apoi crede-ma ca au auzit si de un Brancusi,si NU e deci nevoie sa le spui cine este.Ori Enesco.
Iti inteleg uneori sarcasmul si NU e rau deloc sa-ti expui parerile,ai dreptul la freedom of speach ca fiecare altul-a.Vreau sa stiu daca ceea ce scrii vine din suflet sau din a-ti ascunde parerile proprii in spatele unor comentarii,ori ai poate un ego prea mare?NU ma anula imediat pt. ca am spus astea,sint sincer si la fel gindesc si as dori sa cred ca toti ce facem parte din cafenea sintem onesti in suflet si ca orice critici am primi vor fi privite ca o relatie si de prietenie si nicidecum insulte la adresa vreunui ego.
DA!Aduci in discutie subiecte interesante si asta e bine,creaza un stimul gindirii si excita opinia propie a fiecaruia si te rog sa faci asta si pe mai departe!Personal apreciez gindirea si stilul tau si NU e o flatare,departe de mine asa ceva,dar de ce as minti?

Azi am urmarit la TV(C-SPAN) un panel de discutii f. interesante si moderate de african-americans,am stat 6 ore in fata Tv-ului si cu toate ca deja stiam in mine,mi-am dat seama inca odata ca TOTI sintem unul si acelasi si NU conteaza CULOAREA si LOCUL de unde vii ori te-ai nascut!Acesti invitati,au reusit singuri sa devina ce au dorit de la ei pornind de la saracie crunta si rasismul american .Au invins si sint MINDRI de originea lor si trecutul de sclavie,fara drepturi de NICI un fel!
Nimeni nu a vorbit despre locurile natale,ci despre viitor si despre o democratie ce trebuie sa fie in USA.Intre ei,mari profesori universitari si scriitori si activisti si oameni de stiinta,afla ca TOT ce au spus a fost un ecou in ceea ce simt si eu personal,sotia mea la fel.pt. noi de ex. NU conteaza UNDE te-ai nascut si deci CE culoare ai!Esti ACELASI SUFLET si trebuie sa fii respectat fiind ca un frate sau sora.
NU POT AFIRMA DELOC ca sint...ROMAN,pt. ca mi-as minti sufletul.As putea insa spune ca sint un cetatean al lumii si NU apartin NICIUNEI TARI,fie chiar aceea in care m-am nascut.Nu fac parada din tara (USA)in care sint cetatean de 17 ani dar nu fac parada nici din cea in care m-am nascut.Toate AU MARI PROBLEME de orice nivel,economic,politic,spiritual etc.am gasit insa acum ca ex. aceasta dezbatere TV
si crezi orice vrei si gindesti,mi-am spus opinia si cu onestitate.
daca vrei sa fii popular lasa soarta sa decida in locul tau,acesta-mi e raspunsul si NU este adresat tie in mod particular,deloc!!!!
Ai cel mai mare respect din partea mea.

LOVE&PEACE,
OZZY
Oscar - de Little Eagle la: 01/03/2004 13:25:24
(la: Oscar, file de poveste)
Hello Belazur,
Ca si tine in fiecare an eu si sotia urmarim noaptea Oscarului.E ca o traditie.Sintem mari cinefili.
Vreau sa aduc un comentariu,cred ca ai observat de-a lungul anilor ca un ANUME film is singled out...si e alesul institutiei(The Academy).
Ori a fost "Unforgiven",ori"Braveheart".ori"Dances with wolves"etc.si neaparat Oscarurile mai toate merg la el ori regizor etc.
Anul asta a fost sa fie"Lord of the rings",personal as fi dorit sa fie"Mystic River"
dar Clint deja a luat o gramada de Oscaruri .o anume politica exista.
Totusi am sarit in sus de bucurie ca Sean Penn a luat Oscarul,IL MERITA mai demult chiar!!!!As fi dorit sa fi fost Johnny Depp dar poate anul ce vine,e un MARE actor la fel dar STIAM in suflet ca Sean va fi alesul!!!!
Cu 18 ani in urma am avut sansa si ocazia rara de a vorbi cu Sean Penn si crede-ma ca este un om f. modest,nu are ego ca ar fi ...mare actor,la acel timp era casatorit cu Madonna si era si ea cu el,dar ce contrast!!!Ea cu un HUGE EGO si f. rece,el amical si parca ne stiam de o viata!!Bine ca a divortat de ea!
Am mai scris demult de intilnirile mele cu mari actori sau muzicieni faimosi in lume,I was blessed to meet them!!!!
Si daca pe undeva ar fi vorba de mindria de a ma fi nascut in Romania,mereu am discutat cu ei despre tara,f. interesati sa stie cit mai multe.
Am cunoscut de ex. un alt mare actor al lumii,un favorit al meu,Bobby de Niro.
F. modest la fel si cu un mare simt al umorului.
L-am intilnit de 7 ori si mereu facea misto de mine....glume si imi dadea cite o castana pe cap si zicea"You crazy romanian".
E o poveste prea lunga,dar am cunoscut f. bine pe tatal lui,acelasi nume,Robert de Niro(Sr),si prin el l-am cunoscut si pe marele actor.O vreme am studiat pictura la Art Students League of NY cu el,era un mare pictor si profesor,a murit cu ani in urma.Pacat.Dar da,am avut sansa sa cunosc multa lume din arte,ii stiam din carti si albume de arta ori filme in Romania....NU AM avut idee ca vor fi momente din viata mea traind de 23 ani in USA ca voi avea sansa sa vorbesc si sa dau mina cu ei!!Le-a placut la mine faptul ca NU am vorbit cu ei despre meseria lor si NICI ca am cerut vreun autograf macar!!!!!!
Unii mi-au semnat poze dar a fost oferta lor,nu a mea!
Mai tirziu cind am ajuns faimos aici si la rindul meu semnam autografe,am vindut lui Tim Robbins un desen in tus si desigur l-am semnat si dedicat lui.Nu am vrut sa-i cer bani dar a insistat sa plateasca si in plus un autograf de la el.
Am dat un desen in creion lui Pete Townshend si o vreme chiar am corespondat,mereu semnindu-se personal in scrisori.Am cunoscut pe Keith Richards...cine nu a auzit de el in lumea asta?Alt om modest la culme si la fel parca te cunosti cu el de cind lumea.
Ei,cred ca te-am inebunit,unii din noi au astfel de...noroc.
Ma bucur enorm pt. Sean Penn si Charlize(...pe ea as fi dorit s-o cunosc,mama mia,e superba!!!dar si f. talentata).
Sotia mea a avut sansa sa stea de vorba cu Johnny Depp si erau doar ei doi .cam 30 min.ea e mare fan al lui...sper ca nu l-a atacat....HA!!!
Ea a cunoscut cu multi ani in urma pe Roger Daltrey,cu mult inainte de a ne casatori asa ca o iert.HA!La fel pe David Bowie,care la un concert al lui a cintat mereu uitindu-se la ea,l-a reintilnit in Elvetia mai tirziu.La fel mosulica de Salvador Dali a flirtat cu ea in Paris.
are si ea amintirile ei si a cunoscut artisti ca si mine.Inca pastreaza un fular dat ei de John Entwistle de ex. Dar multe ar fi de spus...Am intilnit de ex pe Ozzy Osbourne si pe tot grupul Black Sabbath,am un disc al lor din 1972,ce toti 4 mi l-au semnat,o raritate.La fel am si un vechi disc Rolling Stones,provine de la sotie,
din 1967(Their satanic majesties request)semnat de toti 5,deci grupul original,cu Bill Wyman si Brian Jones),sint desigur pe pereti in rame .
Avem si poze cu autografe originale de la Russel Crowe,Gary Oldman,Johnny Depp,Pierce Brosnan,Christian Bale.Cind esti artist cunosti lume.
Inchei aici si pe curind,I hope,
LOVE&PEACE,
Ozzy
Canada - de Tombola la: 17/03/2004 11:48:06
(la: Romani in strainatate)
Nu am inteles un lucru?
Citind acest forum vad ca mai toti vor sa emigreze in Canada
Ce-o fi in Canda de nu s-o gasi in alte tari?
Quebecul ca somaj este in frunte, majoritatea qubechistilor lucrind la guvernul qubecuez iar provincia este mai francofila decit Franta cu oameni ne-prietenosi si sustinuta financial de guvernul de la Ottawa.
Montrealul pe care l-am vizitat intensiv sfirsit de saptamina dupa sfirsit de saptamina este frumos dar sa nu exageram...:)
Cea ce mi-a placut ca turist a fost St Lawrence River si vechiul Quebec.
Personal cred ca multi romani vor Canada din cauza ajutoarelor sociale si gratuite si mai putin pentru slujbe fiindca somajul este ridicat.
Am aterizat in America acum 27 de ani cu 1000 de dolari in buzunar si nu am fost pe nici un ajutor social. Am fost dezgustat de birocratia si formele inutile care trebuia sa le complectez numai ca sa intru pe niste bonuri de mincare ca de un aparttament nici ca se punea vorba. Gasit o slujba dupa o luna de cautari si somaj. Din cei 1000 de dolari am inchiriat o garsoniera cu 195 de dolari pe luna plus chiria avans pe o luna.Restul i-am cheltuit pe mincare si pe benzina de la masina imprumutata de la cineva ca sa merg la interviuri plus mi-am cumparat un tv in culori,haine,pantofi,aparte de bucatarie ca mixer. toaster, ,oale ,tacimuri, cutite,farfurii si alte aiureli...:0,istalat telefon,
Sint uimit cit de multe stiu romanii cum sa intre in sistemul social de asistenta canadian.Este un plus sau un minus ? Nu stiu.
Stiu ca nu am apelat la asa ceva niciodata.

Succes la toti

Toshiro Mifune/Sanjuro/Kurosawa - de Little Eagle la: 01/05/2004 19:05:26
(la: CICCIOLINA, actrita porno - o meserie ca oricare alta)
"Oh,dirty women,you'll always be around..."
zicea intr-un cintec Ozzy,mai pe la 1978.
Azi,am tot scris in nestire numai despre sex,drugs and alcohol si experiente personale.
Asa ca ii dau branci acum si pe acest subiect,oare mai conteaza din moment ce toata ziua aproape am tot vorbit despre sex?
Cicciolina,cindva era Okay,deh omul mai imbatrineste,obositi sau nu sanii ei
cred ca un mic gind ascuns tot a trecut prin mintea ta,nu?
NU am habar de prostitutia in Ro.Am pierdut si lumea de underground din NY
de mult,deci vorbesc acum din trecut.
In Ro.cind aveam 16 ani vindeam la liceu reviste porno si cu un amic fotografiam si copiam DUPA reviste sute de poze in ALB-NEGRU si apoi eu luam jumate ,el jumate si le vindeam la liceele noastre,faceam bani cu gramada.
Tot atunci am intilnit niste fete,3 la numar ce veneau acasa la mine si erau f. nebunatice sexual vorbind.Se culcau cu straini,arabi de la camine de studenti
ori turisti.Isi aveau locul unde le placea sa stea la mine acasa.
Intr-un fel ma iubeau in felul lor si oricind aveam chef de sex,toate 3 imi satisfaceau gusturile,de fapt doar 2,a 3a ii placea sa se uite si sa se masturbeze.
Nu le ceream nimic,deci NU eram un peste(pimp)dar ele se ofereau cu cadouri ce la acea vreme erau ceva RAR:blue jeans,tigari straine,bauturi,alte haine.
Chiar si $,aveam niste amici ce aveau relatii la Shop(cum era pe vremuri)si cu $ mei im cumparau orice vroiam .
In fapt aceste fete ce nu aveau mai mult de 16 ani erau prostituate,pe stil de regim comunist.
Aveam amici ce veneau sa ma vada la o vorba sau pahar si fetele isi vedeau de ale lor,asta ii mira pe ei f. mult,pt. ca ori erau goale prin casa,ori la oglinda,aveam una mare si se fardau se uitau la sani etc.
Uneori eram si eu gol cu ele si nu neaparat sa avem sex.
Mincam goi,faceam baie impreuna ne uitam la Tv goi.
In retrospect asta era viata mea de liceu,dar am avut si alte fete cu care nu ma comportam la fel.

In fine,aici in USA am cunoscut ceva prostituate in trecut,unele de mari clienti
(super fine)numite"escort ladies",altele mai de trotuar,mai ales la acea vreme,vorbesc de 1985 erau plasate catre Hudson River,intre 22-24Sts.
Mai in sus erau transvestites si gays.Azi nu mai stiu nimic,de 14 ani incopace si multe s-au schimbat oricum,cind Giulianni a fost primar al NY a terminat total cu faimoasa 42nd.St!!!
Am mai scris ca am cunoscut diversi oameni aici care erau bouncers la streap-tease clubs si datorita lor am putut avea sex pe gratis ori cite un blow job la marea arta.
Am fost in casele lor,unul era ruda cu famiglia Genovese....sa spun mai mult?
Altul era var cu cineva din Bonanno family.
Am mincat cu ei spaghete si aici opresc conversatia.
Da,azi si de 14 ani incoace imi dau seama ca prostitutia e in defavoarea fetelor,sint considerate carne si atita tot,imi pare rau pt. ele.Unele ce am cunoscut erau sensibile daca ma crezi si se gindeau la parinti si ca au facut un pas gresit plecind de acasa in orase mari si cazind in miinile unor pimps exploatatori.
Obisnuiam sa dau uneori cite o raita pe st.22 si unele fete ma stiau,le dadeam bani fara a cere sex de la ele.
Alteori imi spuneau"Please,let me give you a free one",uneori intram in vreun gang si aveam un hand job+blow job si tot le dadeam bani.
Am avut diverse boli ,e imposibil sa nu le capeti in cazul meu,dar m-a ferit Dumnezeu de cele grave!!!Mai o gonoree,o blenoragie si multe injectii in buci cu penicilina 1000.000 units,mai in buca stinga de nu puteam umbla,mai in dreapta,mai in ambele si eram la pat.
Deh!Cicciolina e Okay with me,nu am nimic impotriva pornografiei,de fapt avem nevoie de ea sa zic :to put some spices in our lives.
Ai avut vreodata sex privind tu si partenera ta un film porno?
E excitant si creste in imaginatie dar si mai mult in altceva.Ha!
Ai vazut pe viu 2 fete avind sex intre ele si tu privesti si apoi intri in sex cu amindoua?
E o experienta colosala sexual vorbind,daca ai sansa,te sfatuiesc sa o faci.
Prostitutia va exista la infinit,de vrem sau nu.
Ce real ma supara e traficul si naivitatea unor fete dar soarta decide drumul fiecaruia.Poti opri destinul acestor fete? NU!

In urma cu 14 ani as fi spus:I'll do Cicciolina anytime anyhour anywhere!!!
Azi sint total la extrema opusa,ciudat nu?
Parca am fost 2 persoane diferite in acelasi trup!Poate m-am maturizat in final.
Am sex cu sotia de 2 ori pe sapt si poate la 2 sapt. ma masturbez,am imbatrinit cred si eu si ea.La inceput,mama mia!!!!
Ciudat cum un om devine parca peste noapte un ...homeboy!
Dar mai vorbim alta data.

Nu stiu de ce dar am impresia ca voi deveni Howard Stern-ul cafenelei.Sa fie adevarat?

LOVE&PEACE,
Ozzy













































































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

NEWS
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."


WORLD'S WORST PLACES TO BE A JOURNALIST:

IRAQ

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.

CUBA

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.

ZIMBABWE

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."

TURKMENISTAN

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,"
Saparmurat
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.


BANGLADESH

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.

CHINA

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

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.


HAITI

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

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.

RUSSIA

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.
In
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.

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 ?

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.

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
sense.

Dear Bro,

Stiu ce vrei sa spui....Am cunoscut pe Andy Warhol personal pe vremea cand avea un loc la East River...spre 13 St. in NY numit de el "The Factory".
Sotia mea a fost colega de clasa si facultate cu varul lui,ei se numeau de fapt Varhola fiind polonezi la origini.
La fel in clasa cu ea a fost colega si cu Jerry Seinfeld si Judie Foster.Ele 2 au avut diploma in lb. franceza,master Degree.

Imi place multa din arta lui si a altora,Rauschenberg,Jasper Jones...the old elite,stiu ca Andy era cam excentric(ca un artist)si poate plin de ego.....dar daca apucai sa vorbesti cu el intre 4 ochi...era ..el insusi!!!!!
Sa zic,avea un alter ego,si ii placea sa fie ascultat,sa -si auda cuvintele,Nu suporta sa-l contrazici deloc,ce zicea el era regula spusa de un King!!!!
Parca.....ma uit in oglinda acum....NU stiu,unii artisti suntem megalomani,vrem atentie sau suntem in final doarniste BABIES!!!!!

Am mai cunoscut alt artist pe nume,Armand,are sculpturi de instrumente peste tot in NYC,am fost in atelierul si vila lui,nu departe de a lui Warhol.
Nu-i consider derbedei,uneori sunt de neinteles dar HEY people...artistii sunt cum sunt...si am o oarecare experienta,si eu sunt si v-ati dat deja seama de iesirile mele ...Brancusi era un opium addict si betiv de absinth cu prietenii lui Modigliani,Picasso,Soutine,si chiar la un moment dat....LENIN...prin 1924...cand a capatat el acel...sifilis.....si era mare revolutionar si statea la masa cu acesti artisti...asa a devenit Picasso ...comunist!!!Modigliani l-a scuipat in ochi si a rasturnat masa pe el...mai vorbim despre astea ce-s putin cunoscute de multi!!!!!

Erau cu totii...artisti...derbedei??????Daniel te credeam altfel my friend...!!!!
Poate gresesc?Mai vorbim

Love&peace,

ai putea sa-ncepi miseleste de-acolo de unde se ciocnesc abulantele de salvari, sau din triaj, unde se pare ca n-a mai ajuns, sarutand padelele cand ala tzipa ‘cleaar’, “inapoi”, ca la ciuma…Se zguduiau amandoi, ca sinele sub tramvai si viata, tarandu-si picoarele dinapoi, urla ca o catea taiata de tren.(::)


in confuzia asta el-ea, textul de sus imi aminteste vag de-o melodie a lui Nick Cave, ce-obisnuiam s-o ascult, far' de-a ma gandi prea mult la sensuri:

They call me The Wild Rose
But my name is Elisa Day
Why they call me it I do not know
For my name is Elisa Day

From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
As she stared in my eyes and smiled
For her lips were the colour of the roses
That grew down the river, all bloody and wild

When he knocked on my door and entered the room
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
He would be my first man, and with a careful hand
He wiped at the tears that ran down my face


On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen
I said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow
So sweet and scarlet and free?"

On the second day he came with a single red rose
Said: "Will you give me your loss and your sorrow?"
I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed
He said, "if I show you the roses will you follow?"


On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
As he stood smiling above me with a rock in his fist

On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
As I kissed her goodbye, I said, "All beauty must die"
And lent down and planted a rose between her teeth

se-nfige-atunci in mine, intrebarea, ca un spin: cate ambulate trebuie sa-i aplici unui mort, sa le putem numi salvari?

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
http://www.economist.com/cities/displaystory.cfm?story_id=3071607

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
birthday.

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
admiration.

================================================

La famille d'Henri Cartier-Bresson, la Fondation Henri
Cartier-Bresson, les photographes et l'équipe de
Magnum Photos ont la tristesse de vous annoncer le
décès d'Henri Cartier-Bresson le 3 Août à 9h30 dans sa
maison du Luberon.Les obsèques ont eu lieu dans la
plus grande intimité. Un hommage sera organisé à sa

(la: Test de limba engleza.)
Pt. cei care stiu engleza (sau asa cred ei). Nu consider ca sunt experta dar ma descurc destul de bine. Chiar am primit complimente. In schimb cei mai prosti vorbitori de engleza sunt turcii (din cate stiu eu), din cauza ca nu pot pronunta consoanele una dupa alta. Va dati seama ce iese...
In ceea ce ma priveste filmele si cantecele in engleza au avut o foarte mare influenta, incercam sa imit felul in care spuneau cuvintele si in final am invatat mai multa engleza de la televizor decat din scoala, nici nu mai urmaream subtitrarea. Alt atu este faptul ca chiar imi place engleza.

Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.
Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word,
Sword and sward, retain and Britain.
(Mind the latter, how it's written.)
Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as plaque and ague.
But be careful how you speak:
Say break and steak, but bleak and streak; Cloven, oven, how and low,
Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.
Hear me say, devoid of trickery,
Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,
Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,
Exiles, similes, and reviles;
Scholar, vicar, and cigar,
Solar, mica, war and far;
One, anemone, Balmoral,
Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;
Gertrude, German, wind and mind,
Scene, Melpomene, mankind.
Billet does not rhyme with ballet,
Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.
Blood and flood are not like food,
Nor is mould like should and would.
Viscous, viscount, load and broad,
Toward, to forward, to reward.
And your pronunciation's OK
When you correctly say croquet,
Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,
Friend and fiend, alive and live.
Ivy, privy, famous; clamour
And enamour rhyme with hammer.
River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb,
Doll and roll and some and home.
Stranger does not rhyme with anger,
Neither does devour with clangour.
Souls but foul, haunt but aunt,
Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant, Shoes, goes, does.
Now first say finger, And then singer, ginger, linger, Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge, Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age.
Query does not rhyme with very,
Nor does fury sound like bury.
Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth.
Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath.
Though the differences seem little,
We say actual but victual.
Refer does not rhyme with deafer.
Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer.
Mint, pint, senate and sedate;
Dull, bull, and George ate late.
Scenic, Arabic, Pacific,
Science, conscience, scientific.
Liberty, library, heave and heaven,
Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven.
We say hallowed, but allowed,
People, leopard, towed, but vowed.
Mark the differences, moreover,
Between mover, cover, clover;
Leeches, breeches, wise, precise,
Chalice, but police and lice;
Camel, constable, unstable,
Principle, disciple, label.
Petal, panel, and canal,
Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal.
Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair,
Senator, spectator, mayor.
Tour, but our and succour, four.
Gas, alas, and Arkansas.
Sea, idea, Korea, area,
Psalm, Maria, but malaria.
Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean. Doctrine, turpentine, marine.
Compare alien with Italian,
Dandelion and battalion.
Sally with ally, yea, ye,
Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key.
Say aver, but ever, fever,
Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver.
Heron, granary, canary.
Crevice and device and aerie.
Face, but preface, not efface.
Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass.
Large, but target, gin, give, verging,
Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging.
Ear, but earn and wear and tear
Do not rhyme with here but ere.
Seven is right, but so is even,
Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen,
Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk,
Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work.
Pronunciation -- think of Psyche!
Is a paling stout and spikey?
Won't it make you lose your wits,
Writing groats and saying grits?
It's a dark abyss or tunnel:
Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale, Islington and Isle of Wight,
Housewife, verdict and indict.
Finally, which rhymes with enough --
Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough? Hiccough has the sound of cup.
My advice is to give up!!!

__Premiere at the photokina: Leica Camera AG stages photo
exhibition »24 x 36« to mark 50th anniversary of
Leica rangefinder system

Leica Camera AG, Solms, is showing outstanding pictures of young Leica M photographers at the photokina in Cologne from 28th September to 3rd October 2004. The title of this exhibition, »24 x 36«, alludes to the central importance of the ideal format for 35mm camera film found by Oskar Barnack. The exhibition has been especially organized for this year's photokina, where it will be on view to an international public for the first time. The presentation at the photokina is the start of an exhibition tour. The next stop is the Leica Gallery in Frankfurt, where the photos will be shown for four weeks starting 9th October 2004. The idea behind the exhibition is to mark the three anniversaries of the Leica rangefinder system that the Solms company is celebrating this year: In 1879, 125 years ago, Oskar Barnack, the ingenious inventor of the Leica, was born. 90 years ago, in 1914, he created the basis for his revolutionary camera concept with the Ur-Leica. And in1954, fifty years ago, Ernst Leitz launched the first rangefinder camera, the LEICA M3, on the market.

The flying display will be conducted under the expert control of a trained falconer at a distance of about 80 meters from the stage. The stage is on the Kennedy bank only a few steps from the main entrance to the Cologne fair. At the photokina weekend, the platform on the banks of the Rhine is open to the general public as well.

__Don’t miss LFI 07 / 2004! Available from September 29

Fresh samples with Digital Module R: Introducing the digital
back for the Leica R – LFI 07 / 2004 presents the new
product and pictures. After having publicised early samples
in LFI 06 / 2004, LFI now reveals a sequence of new test
images from one of the last pre-serial models. They confirm
that Leica will be living up to high expectations.

50 years of Leica M: Where’s the rangefinder system at
after half a century? Why the fascination? LFI takes a walk
down memory lane and points out the highlights and
particularities from 50 years of Leica M production. Also
illustrated, how Leica managed to transfer the principle of
precision manufacture to the present day.

M à la Carte: Flamboyant or inconspicuous, elaborate or
plain – launching November 1, M7 or MP customers will
have nearly 4000 component combinations at their disposal
and thus be able to select the preferred attributes for their
personal M. LFI speak with Jean-Jacques Viau, marketing
manager of the business unit Photo at Leica, on the story
behind the new project and how the offer is best taken
advantage of.

Portfolios: Dr Erich Salomon Prize for a life’s work: an
homage to the great photographer, Will McBride, whose
close personal relationships with his subjects manifested as
the central theme of his work. Oskar Barnack Prize 2004:
only 10 photographers made it into the jury’s shortlist. LFI
presents their work

Crystal screen technology: LFI is one of the world's first
magazines to adopt crystal screen printing technology. An
advantage for our readers is that photos can now be
reproduced in magazine print without a trace of the print
screen. LFI sets a new standard in the field of photography
magazines and thus creates truly ideal conditions for the
presentation of Leica photography.

Also, note our new book offer at LFI’s online book shop:

Van Morrison - de (anonim) la: 15/11/2004 23:46:28

De foarte multe ori cand descopar o melodie care imi place o ascult pana la saturatie...chiar setez cd-ul pe repete si o acult nonstop...si imi place:) ex.Van Morrison -I'll be your lover too sau Diana Krall -Cry me a River...si multe altele:)

Am glumit cand am spus "in the middle of nowhere"!
Louisville, ca marime e al 16-lea oras din US, si ceea ce m-a atras pe mine aici e ca poti sta la tara la 5 minute de oras. Cost of living e mult mai realistic decat in Lexington (al 2-lea oras ca marime in KY).. Esti la 60-75 de minute de Cincinnati, la 2 - 2.5 ore de Nashville, la 60 minute de Lexington. Si daca iti plac outdoor activities, esti in mijlocul lor (ai o multime de lacuri la o distanta mai mica de 2 ore de condus - te poti uita pe internet la Cumberland lake, sau Taylorsville/Kentucky lakes, esti la 2 ore de Appalachia, ai curse de cai 4 luni pe an - KY derby are loc in Louisville). Ca sa nu vorbim de Ohio river care trece aproape de centru.

Din punct e vedere al industriei, GE/Raython/univ. of Louisville sunt unii dintre principalii employers. Si cum am mai spus, Lexington e doar la 60 de mile distanta... E unul din cele mai "chic" oarse pe care le-am vazut aici (doar Charleston, in SC mi-a placut mai mult)...

Oricum, daca vrei mai multe informatii, scrie-mi.

Eyes Wide Shut - de Adrian Marchidann la: 06/01/2005 15:34:26
(la: Filmele mele)
L-am vazut de cateva ori, dar nu prea am inteles despre ce vorba. Poate am lumineaza cineva.

Lista mea seamana foarte mult cu cea a lui Little Eagle. As mai adauga doar cateva titluri:

Full Metal Jacket
Saving Private Ryan
Thin Red Line
Rain Man
Bridge Over The River Kway
Manhattan
Annie Hall
Easy Rider
Ben Hur
Gone With the Wind
Gladiator
Terms of Endearment

Iar ca documentar de exceptie, New York de Ric Burns. Ma opresc aici.
