Quotation: George Eliot on human feeling


Human feeling is like the mighty rivers that bless the earth: it does not wait for beauty—it flows with resistless force and brings beauty with it.

Today’s Birthday: CHESTER BURTON “CHET” ATKINS, MISTER GUITAR (1924)


Chester Burton “Chet” Atkins, Mister Guitar (1924)

Atkins got his first guitar by making a trade with his brother, and it was arguably the best deal he ever made. Although he struggled with shyness and suffered from severe asthma—he had to sleep sitting up and often fell asleep still holding his guitar—he became an accomplished guitarist and went on to release several hit records, develop a signature line of guitars, and help create country music‘s “Nashville sound.” What did “Mr. Guitar,” as he came to be known, trade to get that first guitar? More… Discuss

This Day in the Yesteryear: GANGSTER BENJAMIN “BUGSY” SIEGEL MURDERED (1947)


Gangster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel Murdered (1947)

Infamous gangster Bugsy Siegel began his criminal career extorting peddlers in New York City and soon graduated to bootlegging, gambling schemes, and contract killing. In 1937, he was sent to develop rackets on the West Coast, which he did with much success. In 1945, he began building the Flamingo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Originally budgeted at $1.5 million, the cost was driven to $6 million due to his skimming, angering his mob bosses. Months after the opening, Siegel was killed by whom? More… Discuss

 

MAGNETOENCEPHALOGRAPHY


Magnetoencephalography

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is an imaging technique that maps brain activity by recording magnetic fields produced by electrical currents in the brain. Unlike electroencephalography, which uses electrodes attached to the head, MEG uses sensors positioned over the head and takes place in a vaultlike machine that eliminates interference from magnetic fields produced by various sources. MEG is sometimes used to pinpoint areas of pathological activity before surgery to treat what conditions? More… Discuss

Ma retrag acum, gand poetic de George-B


Ma retrag acum, gand poetic de George-B

Ma retrag acum
din circul vietii,
din ringul ei lunecos cu sange si sudoare
cu mirosul acru al fierii iesite prin porii pielii
nervii sant tabaciti, tumefiati, fierbinti izbucnesc
cu fiecare svîcnire de inima…

“Aminteste-ti ca durerea e dovada de viata”-
Ma aud sbierand din adancul firii,
strigat surd,
intre pereti fara auz… 

Ma retrag acum
din (circul) ringul vietii
fara rezerva, trup si suflet – jubilez.

I am withdrawing now, poetic thought by George-B 

I am withdrawing now,
From the circus of life,
From its ring slippery with blood and sweet
with the sour smell of the bile exuding through the skin’s pores,
The nerves are tender,  tumefied, hot, explode
with every heartbeat…
“Remember that pain is proof of life”,
I hear myself shouting from the depth of my being…

Depth scream, between depth walls…

I am withdrawing now,
From the (circus) ring of life
Without reserve, body and soul- I’m jubilating.

PABLO NERUDA!! Poema 20 – Puedo escribir los versos mas tristes esta noche



Poema Nº 20 de “20 poemas de amor y una cancion desesperada” de Pablo Neruda 
Puedo escribir los versos mas tristes esta noche…..

“Tonight I Can Write The Saddest Lines” by Pablo Neruda (read by Tom O’Bedlam)



There’s a video with Robert Carlyle as Rumpelstiltskin using this reading here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjGEq…

And a Giles & Buffy video using this reading on Vimeo:
http://vimeo.com/43660480#

Many people find this poem expresses their own feelings very well. 

From Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair, published by Jonathan Cape

The final painting was by Van Gogh.

Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
Write, for example, ‘The night is starry
and the stars are blue and shiver in the distance.’

The night wind revolves in the sky and sings.
Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.

Through nights like this one I held her in my arms.
I kissed her again and again under the endless sky.
She loved me, sometimes I loved her too.

How could one not have loved her great still eyes.
Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
To think that I do not have her. To feel that I have lost her.

To hear the immense night, still more immense without her.
And the verse falls to the soul like dew to the pasture.
What does it matter that my love could not keep her.

The night is starry and she is not with me.
This is all. In the distance someone is singing. In the distance.
My soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.

My sight tries to find her as though to bring her closer.
My heart looks for her, and she is not with me.

The same night whitening the same trees.
We, of that time, are no longer the same.

I no longer love her, that’s certain, but how I loved her.
My voice tries to find the wind to touch her hearing.

Another’s. She will be another’s. As she was before my kisses.
Her voice, her bright body. Her infinite eyes.

I no longer love her, that’s certain, but maybe I love her.
Love is so short, forgetting is so long.

Because through nights like this one I held her in my arms
my soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.

Though this be the last pain that she makes me suffer
and these the last verses that I write for her.

A Song Of Despair, by Pablo Neruda


A Song Of Despair, by Pablo Neruda

The memory of you emerges from the night around me.
The river mingles its stubborn lament with the sea.

Deserted like the wharves at dawn.
It is the hour of departure, oh deserted one!

Cold flower heads are raining over my heart.
Oh pit of debris, fierce cave of the shipwrecked.

In you the wars and the flights accumulated.
From you the wings of the song birds rose.

You swallowed everything, like distance.
Like the sea, like time. In you everything sank!

It was the happy hour of assault and the kiss.
The hour of the spell that blazed like a lighthouse.

Pilot’s dread, fury of blind driver,
turbulent drunkenness of love, in you everything sank!

In the childhood of mist my soul, winged and wounded.
Lost discoverer, in you everything sank!

You girdled sorrow, you clung to desire,
sadness stunned you, in you everything sank!

I made the wall of shadow draw back,
beyond desire and act, I walked on.

Oh flesh, my own flesh, woman whom I loved and lost,
I summon you in the moist hour, I raise my song to you.

Like a jar you housed infinite tenderness.
and the infinite oblivion shattered you like a jar.

There was the black solitude of the islands,
and there, woman of love, your arms took me in.

There was thirst and hunger, and you were the fruit.
There were grief and ruins, and you were the miracle.

Ah woman, I do not know how you could contain me
in the earth of your soul, in the cross of your arms!

How terrible and brief my desire was to you!
How difficult and drunken, how tensed and avid.

Cemetery of kisses, there is still fire in your tombs,
still the fruited boughs burn, pecked at by birds.

Oh the bitten mouth, oh the kissed limbs,
oh the hungering teeth, oh the entwined bodies.

Oh the mad coupling of hope and force
in which we merged and despaired.

And the tenderness, light as water and as flour.
And the word scarcely begun on the lips.

This was my destiny and in it was my voyage of my longing,
and in it my longing fell, in you everything sank!

Oh pit of debris, everything fell into you,
what sorrow did you not express, in what sorrow are you not drowned!

From billow to billow you still called and sang.
Standing like a sailor in the prow of a vessel.

You still flowered in songs, you still brike the currents.
Oh pit of debris, open and bitter well.

Pale blind diver, luckless slinger,
lost discoverer, in you everything sank!

It is the hour of departure, the hard cold hour
which the night fastens to all the timetables.

The rustling belt of the sea girdles the shore.
Cold stars heave up, black birds migrate.

Deserted like the wharves at dawn.
Only tremulous shadow twists in my hands.

Oh farther than everything. Oh farther than everything.

It is the hour of departure. Oh abandoned one!

On collectionCB, collectionCB2 and collectionCB3 we can also listen to William Grant Still : orchestration of James Price Johnson‘s « Yamekraw » (1927), « Old California » symphonic Poem (1941), « Mother and Child » for orchestra (1943), « Poem for orchestra » (1944), « Festive Overture » (1944) and « Sunday Symphony » (1958).

L’un des plus grands symphonistes du Nouveau Monde est l’Afro-Américain William Grant Still qui fut d’abord l’élève de l’académique George Chadwick puis de l’avant-gardiste Edgar Varèse avant de trouver définitivement sa voie : le militantisme musical. Toute son œuvre combattra la ségrégation raciale. La symphonie n°1 « Afro-American », composée en 1930 et la symphonie n°2 « Song of a New Race » (1936) sont des chefs-d’œuvre, le premier plutôt tragique, l’autre davantage “Brodway”. Sa troisième symphonie, « Sunday Symphony », composée en 1958, semble une récréation pour celui qui était devenu à Hollywood l’orchestrateur de plusieurs compositeurs célèbres, notamment Dimitri Tiomkin pour le film de Frank Capra « Lost Horizon/Horizons perdus » (1937). On retrouve dans la « Sunday Symphony », mais superficiellement, les composantes du style de William Grant Still : blues et mélodisme, humour et élégance, sur fond de revendications sociales. C’est la dernière symphonie de William Grant Still car les symphonies numérotées par les éditeurs « 4 » et « 5 » sont, en fait, des œuvres de jeunesse tardivement publiées.

Henry & June: Great Music, Great Actors, Great Movie…Great Memories


Henry and June



Anaïs & June storyline from the film “Henry & June” [1990], starring Maria de Medeiros as Anaïs Nin, Uma Thurman as June Miller, and Fred Ward as Henry Miller

Synopsis for the film: “Philip Kaufman‘s brilliant film explores the erotic life of two individuals who became 20th Century literary giants. Upon meeting American author Henry Miller (Fred Ward) in Paris, 1931, a young writer name Anais Nin (Maria de Medeiros) embarks on a voyage of self-discovery and faithfully records every experience in her diary.

In their search for new truths, Anais and Henry are tantalized by Henry’s hauntingly sensual wife, June (Uma Thurman). Henry & June is an unforgettable journey into the uncharted territory of human relationship, based on the suppressed sections of Anais Nin’s diaries.”

Album: Les Annees Orlando

Genre: World

C’est etrange
Je n’sais pas ce qui m’arrive ce soir
Je te regarde comme pour la premiere fois
Encore des mots toujours des mots
Les memes mots

Je n’sais plus comme te dire
Rien que des mots
Mais tu es cette belle histoire d’amour
Que je ne cesserai jamais de lire

Des mots faciles des mots fragiles
C’etait trop beau
Tu es d’hier et de demain
Bien trop beau

De toujours ma seule verite
Mais c’est fini le temps des reves
Les souvenirs se fanent aussi
Quand on les oublie

Tu es comme le vent qui fait chanter les violons
Et emporte au loin le parfum des roses
Caramels, bonbons et chocolats
Par moments, je ne te comprends pas

Merci, pas pour moi
Mais tu peux bien les offrir a une autre
Qui aime le vent et le parfum des roses
Moi, les mots tendres enrobes de douceur

Se posent sur ma bouche
Mais jamais sur mon coeur
Une parole encore
Parole, parole, parole
Ecoute-moi

Parole, parole, parole
Je t’en prie
Parole, parole, parole
Je te jure

Parole, parole, parole, parole, parole
Encore des paroles que tu semes au vent
Voila mon destin te parler
Te parler comme la premiere fois
Encore des mots toujours des mots

Les memes mots
Comme j’aimerais que tu me comprennes
Rien que des mots
Que tu m’ecoutes au moins une fois

Des mots magiques des mots tactiques
Qui sonnent faux
Tu es mon reve defendu
Oui, tellement faux

Mon seul tourment et mon unique esperance
Rien ne t’arrete quand tu commences
Si tu savais comme j’ai envie
D’un peu de silence

Tu es pour moi la seule musique
Qui fit danser les etoiles sur les dunes
Caramels, bonbons et chocolats
Si tu n’existais pas deja je t’inventerais

Merci, pas pour moi
Mais tu peux bien les ouvrir a une autre
Qui aime les etoiles sur les dunes
Moi, les mots tendres enrobes de douceur

Se posent sur ma bouche
Mais jamais sur mon coeur
Encore un mot juste une parole
Parole, parole, parole
Ecoute-moi

Parole, parole, parole
Je t’en prie
Parole, parole, parole
Je te jure

Parole, parole, parole, parole, parole
Encore des paroles que tu semes au vent

Que tu es belle
Parole, parole, parole
Que tu est belle

Que tu es belle

Que tu es belle

Je suis allé au marché aux oiseaux

Je suis allé au marché aux fleurs
Et j’ai acheté des fleurs

Je suis allé au marché à la ferraille

Et puis je suis allé au marché aux esclaves
Et je t’ai cherchée
Mais je ne t’ai pas trouvée

Snowden’s response : This is a man who gave us the warrantless wiretapping scheme as a kind of atrocity warm-up on the way to deceitfully engineering a conflict that has killed over 4,400 and maimed nearly 32,000 Americans, as well as leaving over 100,000 Iraqis dead.”

Edward Snowden honored to be called a ‘traitor’ by Dick Cheney

Snowden writes Photo: flickr

FLORIDA, June 18, 2013 — Allegations that renegade government contractor Edward Snowden, who recently leaked a plethora of National Security Agency documents addressing a top-secret and allegedly unconstitutional data mining program known as PRISM, is traitorous have reached new heights.

In a Fox News Sunday appearance, former Vice President Dick Cheney referred to Snowden as a “traitor.” Cheney suspects that the now-world famous whistleblower has less than noble intentions because “he went to China. That’s not a place where you would ordinarily want to go if you are interested in freedom, liberty and so forth. It raises questions whether or not he had that kind of connection before he did this.”

glyphosate

Tuesday, June 18, 2013
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com

(NaturalNews) This is an urgent action alert from Natural News and the Health Ranger. Public comments are due by July 1 to object to new EPA regulations which are already in place, allowing glyphosate contamination of food crops, edible oils and waterways at concentrations which are thousands of times higher than the amount needed to cause cancer.

The new regulation, which can be viewed HERE, sets the following regulations regarding glyphosate residues on crops:

• It allows forage and hay teff to contain up to 100 ppm glyphosate (that’s over one million times the concentration needed to cause cancer according to a recent study). See PubMed source here:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23756170

The Obamacare Insurance Exchange Train Is Already Coming Off The Rails


Family Survival Protocol - Microcosm News

WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 03:  Health and Human S...

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) raised eyebrows across the country last month when he publicly fretted about an Obamacare “train wreck” as the Administration rushes to implement the many provisions of the law that take effect in 2014.

President Obama has attempted to assuage Sen. Baucus’s concerns, saying that his staff was “pushing very hard to make sure that we’re hitting all the deadlines.”

But an Obamacare train wreck isn’t a distant possibility. It’s actively happening. Delays, wasteful spending, and cost overruns have already popped up. And it’s becoming increasingly likely that the exchanges won’t be ready by October 1, when they’re supposed to open for enrollment. Mass confusion and excessive costs will result.

The federal government is set to operate exchanges in 27 states and to jointly run them with state officials in another seven. Seventeen states…

This video from Japan says about itself:

Relationship between Yakuza gangs and TEPCO has become closer by the accident

Uploaded on Oct 22, 2011

Syunsuke Yamaoka, representive of Access Journal, entered the site of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant illegally with a helping hand of the workers there and found Yakuza gangs arranged jobs there, especially jobs inside the buildings which would make the workers’ life get at stake and that the relationship between Yakuza gangs and TEPCO had got closer than before the accident.

And he wrote a book ‘Fukushima Daiichi Genpatu Sennyuki(Book of Infiltration into Fukushima Daiichi Nuke Plant)’ about that, with interviews with three workers working there.

The website of Access Journal (in Japanese): here.

TEPCO may let gangs arrange those like multiple-debtors for a job in Fukushima: here.

Day laborers were deceived into removing highly-radiated rubble in Fukushima, I heard: here.

EXPERIMENTUL PITESTI SI “REEDUCAREA” COMUNISTA PRIN TORTURA. VIDEO


La trecutu-ti mare…mare viitor!

CER SI PAMANT ROMANESC

Înainte de a face analiza celor petrecute în închisorile Piteşti, Gherla, Târgu–Ocna, ţin să fac următoarele precizări. Sunt unul dintre cei 3 sau 4 supravieţuitori care, trecând prin demascări şi aşa–zisa reeducare, poate aduce precizări şi în ceea ce priveşte ultima înscenare a Securităţii, din 1957, cu care s–a încheiat acest lung şir de crime, printr–un aşa–zis proces al autorilor morali ai reeducării.

De asemenea, pentru o mai clară înţelegere a dimensiunii acţiunilor din închisorile amintite, am tratat această problemă în modul cum a fost abordat comunismul în volumele Holocaustul Roşu (1992 şi 1998) ale domnului Dr. Florin Mătrescu.

Analiza celor petrecute în închisorile Piteşti, Gherla, Canal, Tg. Ocna, Târgşor, în perioada 1949–1952 nu poate fi desprinsă de tot ceea ce s–a petrecut în răsăritul Europei din 1917 în Rusia şi din 1944 în statele predate U.R.S.S.–ului.

Pentru a putea prezenta şi înţelege factorii care au stat la baza acestor…

Obama’s WMD Moment: The Administration Increases Claims Of Thwarting “Potential” Attacks and Saving Lives


JONATHAN TURLEY

George-W-Bush_jpegPresident_Barack_ObamaGeorge Bush was rightfully denounced for his Administration’s false statements to both the public and the United Nations on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq — the rationale for our invasion of that country. There was little apparent concern from Bush or his aides over the veracity or proof of their assertions as opposed to the desired outcome. The same mentality is in open display with President Obama this month as he and his aides continue to increase the claims of “successes” from the warrantless surveillance programs as public opposition grows. In this case, the increasing claims are being made in a war on privacy, including an effort to redefine privacy in a new surveillance-friendly image. We are now up to over 50 “potential plots” and Obama is sounding distinctly Bush-like in statements today about how these programs “saved lives.” The public, which learned this month that it was…

Today’s Birthday: WALLIS SIMPSON (1896)


Wallis Simpson (1896)

Simpson was an American socialite for whom English King Edward VIII voluntarily abdicated the throne. Their relationship caused a furor in England because the Church of England at the time did not allow people with living ex-spouses to marry, and, as king, Edward was also head of the church. Simpson’s two ex-husbands were still alive when she married Edward on June 3, 1937, just six months after he relinquished his title. How did Wallis and Edward spend the rest of their lives together? More… Discuss

 

This Day in the Yesteryear: MEXICAN EMPEROR MAXIMILIAN I EXECUTED BY FIRING SQUAD (1867)


Mexican Emperor Maximilian I Executed by Firing Squad (1867)

In the 1860s, France sought to establish an empire in Mexico. Ferdinand Maximilian, an Austrian navy chief and member of the Habsburg dynasty, accepted Napoleon III’s offer of the throne, naively believing that the Mexicans had voted him their king. In reality, Maximilian’s only support came from the French army, and the empire was doomed. In 1866, Napoleon withdrew his troops. Maximilian refused to abdicate and was captured and executed, ending the empire. What were his last words? More… Discuss

ELIZABETHAN AUDIENCES ENTERTAINED BY KIDNAPPED KIDS FORCED ON STAGE


Elizabethan Audiences Entertained by Kidnapped Kids Forced on Stage

The reign of Queen Elizabeth I saw a brilliant flourishing of the arts, and while this is generally seen as a positive development, some troubling information has emerged that casts a pall on the theatrical community of the day. Some of the child actors performing on the Elizabethan stage were actually victims of legal kidnapping, taken by theater owners exploiting a privilege granted to them by the queen, which allowed them to forcibly recruit children for their troupes.

Rock Climbing

In rock climbing, participants scale natural rock formations or artificial rock walls using ropes and special equipment—or, sometimes, just their hands and feet. Though humans have been rock climbing for millennia, the activity emerged as a sport in the 19th century. Aid climbing, in which artificial handholds and footholds are used, allowed climbers to reach heights that once seemed inaccessible. Today, the sport continues to evolve. What are some of the ethical considerations of rock climbing? More…
