si suplimentul tot din bar ca e week-end ;) - de Yuki la: 15/07/2006 13:54:46
(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata "9")
A guy walks into a bar and rudely demands a shot of 12-yr old scotch.

The bartender thinks "this guy doesn't know the difference," so he pours a shot of 2-year old scotch.

The patron takes one sip and spits it out. He promptly hollers at the bartender I said 12-year old scotch, you bozo!"

Still unimpressed the bartender pours some 6-year old scotch.
The patron takes a sip...same reaction.

But the bartender still doesn't believe the patron knows the difference. So he pours a shot of 10-year old scotch. Again, same reaction from the patron.

Finally, the bartender is convinced. He pours the patron a glass of 12-year-old scotch. The patron takes a sip and is most satisfied.

All the while this has been going on, a drunk at the end of the bar has been watching.

He slides a shot glass down the bar to the patron and drunkedly says:
"Shay mishter, tashte this!" The patron obliges...he promptly spits it out.

"That tastes like pee!," he shoots back at the drunk.

The drunk replies: "It ish. Now how old am I?"

apologia intunericului, din lumina progresiva, amintindu-mi: "The very sun and moon seem taken from us. Outside, the day may be blue and gold, but the light that creeps down through the thickly-muffled glass of the small iron-barred window beneath which one sits is grey and niggard. It is always twilight in one's cell, as it is always twilight in one's heart. And in the sphere of thought, no less than in the sphere of time, motion is no more." (De Profundis-Oscar Wilde)

cu toata admiratia pentru idee si pentru expunerea acesteia, o parte din mine nu e de acord, sau nu inca
articolul original e aici http://www.tourism-review.com/bucharest-is-reportedly-the-ugliest-eu-capital--news2833

si zice asa: "There is no sewerage, running water or asphalt roads in some parts of the Romanian capital which makes it seem like a city from the Middle Ages. Some houses do have running water but they do not have sewerage. People would like to take a bath but after that they would have to carry buckets of the used water to the nearest sewer. The solution is to wash only in a wash basin.

Other people do not even have running water in their homes so they have to bring it from a well"

ceea ce este 100% adevarat.

Philip Glass - de Pasagerul la: 23/10/2005 16:47:05

Chiar acum ascultam pe laptop muzica filmului "Mishima".
Am avut multe discuri(vinil) ale lui Glass, dar in ultima vreme l-am cam abandonat, cu exceptia lui "Mishima".

mymy - de Horia D la: 11/11/2005 18:17:31
(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata "7")
eu mai sunt aici pentru cateva ore, ca dupa aia o intind la sud, spre nashville

now, THIS IS PRICELESS ! --because it is too familiar!

Every ten years, as summertime nears,
An announcement arrives in the mail,
A reunion is planned; it'll be really grand;
Make plans to attend without fail.

I'll never forget the first time we met;
We tried so hard to impress.
We drove fancy cars, smoked big cigars,
And wore our most elegant dress.

It was quite an affair; the whole class was there.
It was held at a fancy hotel.
We wined, and we dined, and we acted refined,
And everyone thought it was swell.

The men all conversed about who had been first
To achieve great fortune and fame.
Meanwhile, their spouses described their fine houses
And how beautiful their children became.

The homecoming queen, who once had been lean,
Now weighed in at one-ninety-six.
The jocks who were there had all lost their hair,
And the cheerleaders could no longer do kicks.

No one had heard about the class nerd
Who'd guided a spacecraft to the moon;
Or poor little Jane, who's always been plain;
She married a shipping tycoon.

The boy we'd decreed "most apt to succeed"
Was serving ten years in the pen,
While the one voted "least" now was a priest;
Just shows you can be wrong now and then.

They awarded a prize to one of the guys
Who seemed to have aged the least.
Another was given to the grad who had driven
The farthest to attend the feast.

They took a class picture, a curious mixture
Of beehives, crew cuts and wide ties.
Tall, short, or skinny, the style was the mini;
You never saw so many thighs.

At our next get-together, no one cared whether
They impressed their classmates or not.
The mood was informal, a whole lot more normal;
By this time we'd all gone to pot.

It was held out-of-doors, at the lake shores;
We ate hamburgers, coleslaw, and beans.
Then most of us lay around in the shade,
In our comfortable T-shirts and jeans.

By the fortieth year, it was abundantly clear,
We were definitely over the hill.
Those who weren't dead had to crawl out of bed,
And be home in time for their pill.

And now I can't wait as they've set the date;
Our 50th is coming, I'm told .
It should be a ball, they've rented a hall
At the Shady Rest Home for the old.

Repairs have been made on my old hearing aid;
My pacemaker's been turned up on high.
My wheelchair is oiled, and my teeth have been boiled;
And I've bought a new wig and glass eye.

I'm feeling quite hearty; I'm ready to party,
I'll dance until dawn's early light.
It'll be lots of fun; and I hope at least one
Other person can make it that night.

The value of a drink - de Horia D la: 25/05/2006 15:04:19
(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata "9")

The Value of a Drink
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink
I feel shame. Then I look into the glass and think
about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes
and dreams . If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out
of work and their dreams would be shattered.
Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this wine and let their
dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
~ Jack Handy
WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may leave you wondering what
the hell happened to your bra and panties.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they
wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're
going to feel all day. " !
~Frank Sinatra
WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may create the illusion that you
are tougher, smarter, faster and better looking than most people.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading."
~ Henny Youngman
WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may lead you to think people are
laughing WITH you.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not."
~ Stephen Wright
WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause you to think you can sing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk,
we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all
get drunk and go to heaven!"
~ Brian O'Rourke
WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause pregnancy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
~ Benjamin Franklin
WARNING: The consumption of alcohol is a major factor in dancing like a
retard.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Without question, the greatest invention in the
history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the
wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does
not go nearly as well with pizza."
~ Dave Barry
WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause you to tell your
friends over and over again that you love them.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
To some it's! a six-pack, to me it's a Support Group. Salvation in a can!
~ Dave Howell
WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think you can
logically converse with members of the opposite sex without spitting.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And saving the best for last, as explained by Cliff Clavin, of Cheers.
One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory
to his buddy Norm.
Here's how it went:
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as
fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the
slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural
selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed
and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of
the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only
operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol,
as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and
weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer
eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more
efficient machine.
That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think you are
whispering when you are not.

Honey in the Sunshine - de Marlene_ la: 18/11/2006 20:22:24
(la: TOPUL POVESTIRILOR SCURTE)
Sunt de acord cu tine, amandoua mi-au placut mult. Nopti albe, o poveste despre iubire, confesiuni intre doua suflete singure.

A perfect day for bananafish mi se pare brilianta. Plina de mister, e ca o ghicitoare fara solutie evidenta, prin sfarsitul ei neasteptat te invita la meditatie, ca dealtfel toate povestirile din colectia de noua care ne pregateste prin epigraful Zen: "We know the sound of two hands clapping. But what is the sound of one hand clapping?’’

Cred ca "See more glass" este el insusi "a bananafish", coplesit de sentimentul ca nu mai poate "inota" printre oameni. Stiind viata lui Salinger, si citind si celelalte povestiri, il intelegem mai bine pe Seymour, nu-i asa? Tu ce crezi? Ce-i un "bananafish"?
Te astept cu noi povestiri, incerc sa fac si eu o lista proprie. De moment, pun A perfect day si pe lista mea.

Ambele pot fi citite in engleza:

The Great Beyond - de Alina Momanu la: 29/09/2003 02:18:21
(la: Marele Eveniment)
E o promisiune, un pact facut cu sine insusi intr-o lume ciuntita in care esenta frumusetii s-a pierdut si in care numai suferinta a ramas, ca marturie ca viata inca mai exista, chiar si asa, pe dos.
Dar se va intampla la apus, martea viitoare. Nu maine, nu poimanine ci int-o MARTI, mai tarziu decat "in curand". Si apusul n-a fost niciodata simbolul Renasterii.
Va fi o calatorie aici, se va intampla Marea Trecere spre Dicolo.
Dar ...ia asculta-aici:
"Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
...We’re both of us beneath out love, we’re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love..."
Pentru cel care isi plateste chiria in fiecare zi in The Tower of Song, fericirea e "dincolo", fericirea e un sfarsit.
Metafora unui vis...

(la: Marele Eveniment)
"Dance me to the children, who are askin' to be born / Dance me to the curtains, that our kisses have outworn / Dance me with your naked eye, be my homeward dove / And dance me, to the end of love" (citat aproximativ, din memorie)

"Dance me to the end of love" un cantec despre statornicia in dragoste pana la moarte. Videoclipul: fotografii de nunta din tinerete, vechi de zeci de ani, alternand cu imaginile unor batrani tinandu-se de mana pe culoarele unei case de batrani...

Versul "Dance me to their beauty, where they're burning violins" e o aluzie la crematoriile din lagarele naziste, la intrarea carora erau pusi detinutii sa cante la violoncele piese de camera, in timp ce nenorocitii erau arsi...

(la: Femeia)
Motto: "Please don't feed the troll"

Efectele statului la discutii cu un troll sunt irosirea timpului si nervilor. Utilizatorul de buna credinta dar nepus in garda ii poate cadea usor in plasa, spre distractia trollilor.

Un articol in romana ce va va lamuri ce urmareste acest soi de indivizi:
http://www.geocities.com/muntealb/ForumuriFlacari.htm

Puteti citi si Portretul unui troll

Articolul in engleza, cu o definitie detaliata:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_troll

Cel in franceza se gaseste aici:
http://www.uzine.net/article1032.html?var_recherche=troll

Aceste articole va vor permite sa-i puteti recunoaste pe acesti "paraziti ai forumurilor", si sa evitati sa le cadeti in plasa.

Lectura placuta, si nu uitati: "nu hraniti troll-ul"...
Metoda cea mai eficienta de a-l starpi e sa-l ignori


PS
1°motive ptr. care am banat ptr. 5 zile la acest subiect pe Belazur si enigmescu. Vad ca lor nu le plac nici subiectele serioase si nici bancurile: Concluzia: Sint Trollllli.

Daca am gresi( nimeni nu e perfect...) va asteptam aici peste 5 zile cu contributzii proprii.
2° Se mai anuntza cineva ptr. "actziunea" asta?

The trinity:Marx,Engels,Lenin.....CIOCU' MIC !!! - de (anonim) la: 21/03/2004 16:53:00
(la: America, o tara comunista?)
Draga Adacartianu,
Am citit textul tau,ma intreb CE cauti in America daca nu-ti place si colac peste pupaza o mai numesti si ...comunista?Iti place Franta,apoi cine te opreste sa nu te duci si sa-ti faci viitorul acolo? ori daca ai,precum spui nostalgii romanesti,intoarce-te acasa si incearca sa-ti faci un viitor sub DON Corleone Iliescu(un real comunist,altfel bun ...baiat)si gasca lui de mafioti din guvern,niste fosti securisti si curpupisti,poate le simti lipsa.
Ca sa ajungi sa critici USA iti trebuie o gramada de ani in carca si o gramada de experienta de viata ce azi NU o ai deloc,asa ca ....CIOCU MIC!!!
Ai doar 25 ani si este exact virsta la care am venit eu aici,ciudat insa dar ne deosebim....eu la acea vreme nu-mi venea sa cred ca sint aici si eram in culmea fericirii fara un cent in buzunare si fara sa ma gindesc macar(inca) la ce voi face din mine!!!!Eram in delir,imi venea sa pling si sa urlu pe strazi ca-s liber si fericit asa cum sint,fara perspective de nici un fel!
Am trait comunismul din marele PLIN de a face ...TOTU...cum spunea ...marele conducator si erou national si ...incult si imbecil de 4 clase primare.Tu ce ai trait sa ai tupeul de a da cu parul intr-o tara care te-a acceptat azi sa traiesti in ea si sa-ti faci un viitor precum viselor tale?Poate ar fi bine sa te trimita inapoi,sint f.f.f.multi care vin aici si DORESC asta dar au nesansa sa fie ex-patriati,ori trec prin mari greutati sa aiba un green-card ori cetatenie,si apari tu,aiurea cu aere de artista si le dai pe filosofie si ginduri marxist-leniniste dar in final iti convine sa traiesti aici...cel putin pe moment pina-ti vine mintea la cap si vei alege CE TARA e potrivita gusturilor tale!Ce-ar fi sa dai cu banul?Cade pe muchie(f.RAR dar se intimpla),ia un revolver si joaca ruleta ruseasca tot cu gindul la o alegere....
Hai sa ma gindesc....deci 25 ani..hm,asta inseamna ca te-ai nascut in1979..you're just a baby to me.la virsta asta cam plina de elan tineresc si muncitoresc si plin de critici si creieri ce zbirnie de filosofii grandioase este cam normal sa gindesti in spiritul partidului,eu eram deja cu actele depuse la Iorga si treceam prin cacat cu secu,mai tirziu nu puteam pleca sa cumpar o piine ca eram filat si urmarit.Crezi ca-mi ardea de filosofii?Si eu sint artist si chiar realizat ,din arta mea traiesc eu si sotia,mai citeste alte texte despre mine la cafenea si afli mai multe.
DAR cind am venit aici nu am venit cu aere de artist,de fapt am muncit la docuri la inceput in port,am fost si messenger in Manhattan si pictor de firme si lucrat in diners ca bus-boy si lucrat la Metropolitan museum la stock services(magazie) si nu am facut arta ca atare dar am studiat in prostie si cu bursa la Art Students League of NY,am fost apoi si artist de b.d.si avut faima etc. si azi de 7 ani sint artist in advertising si ilustrez reclame comerciale pt. Tvnea USA.Un drum lung parcurs in ..23 ani si ca si altii de pe forum care traiesc aici de zeci de ani cam STIM cum e treaba pe la noi prin tara!!!!
Sa vii insa cu astfel de conceptii mi se pare deplasat si total IMATUR!!!Dar cert e un lucru:
NU iti convine ori place unde traiesti,pleaca inapoi de unde ai venit ori in tara pe care o admiri cel mai mult si lasa-ne in pace cu ale noastre caci avem destule pe cap si nu cred ca mai e nevoie de o alta ineptie si filosofie si aere boeme si nemultumiri ,oare chiar poti dormi noaptea cu gindurile astea ce le ai in cap?

Asta am avut de spus si oricit de dur as fi poate e necesar ca cineva sa te trezeasca la realitate....wake up and smell the coffee.

LOVE&PEACE,
Ozzy

Ps : Nu stiu de ce dar o vorba veche de-a lui Napoleon Bonaparte mi se pare potrivita subiectului tau:

"You run in defense and you run in offence,when you have nowhere to run
you die."
