Diabetes and sugary drinks, poetic thought by George-B


Diabetes and sugary drinks, poetic thought by George-B

Lately, everywhere I go
I seem to have my pass crossed by Coca-Cola 18 Wheeler,
carrying their sickening brew,
to a market near you: Buy it all,
get diabetes,
drink drink, drink… Make them rich, make you sick,
make health care industry rich, make you sick…
Get morbidly obese, get diabetes, drink at least a gallon a day…. shorten a meaningless life significantly…

Or just let their brew rot on their shelves, of age,
and live a day longer, by just water!
The choice is yours: your food market won’t make it for you,
and your doctor, won’t make it for you…
Cause there is money to be made off you…
from the choices you chose to make!

Regina Spektor – “Laughing With” [Official Music Video]


REGINA SPEKTOR LYRICS

“Laughing With”

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God
When they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

No one laughs at God
When the doctor calls after some routine tests
No one’s laughing at God
When it’s gotten real late
And their kid’s not back from the party yet

No one laughs at God
When their airplane start to uncontrollably shake
No one’s laughing at God
When they see the one they love, hand in hand with someone else
And they hope that they’re mistaken

No one laughs at God
When the cops knock on their door
And they say we got some bad news, sir
No one’s laughing at God
When there’s a famine or fire or flood

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke, or
Or when the crazies say He hates us
And they get so red in the head you think they’re ‘bout to choke
God can be funny,
When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
God can be so hilarious
Ha ha
Ha ha

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God
When they’ve lost all they’ve got
And they don’t know what for

No one laughs at God on the day they realize
That the last sight they’ll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes
No one’s laughing at God when they’re saying their goodbyes
But God can be funny
At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke, or
Or when the crazies say He hates us
And they get so red in the head you think they’re ‘bout to choke
God can be funny,
When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
God can be so hilarious

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one laughing at God in hospital
No one’s laughing at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God when they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

No one’s laughing at God
No one’s laughing at God
No one’s laughing at God
We’re all laughing with God

Regina Spektor – “On The Radio” [Official Music Video]



this is how it works
it feels a little worse
and when we drove our hearse
right through that screaming crowd
while laughing up a storm
until we were just bone
until it got so warm
that none of us could sleep

then all the styrofoam
began to melt away
we tried to find some worms
to aid in the decay
but none of them were home
inside their catacomb
a million ancient bees
began to sting our knees

while we were on our knees
praying that disease
would leave the ones we love
and never come again
and on the radio
we heard november rain
the solo’s really long
but it’s a pretty song
we listened to it twice
cause the dj was asleep

this is how it works
you’re young until you’re not
you love until you don’t
you try until you can’t
you laugh until you cry
you cry until you laugh
and everyone must breathe
until their dying breath

this is how it works
you peer inside yourself
you take the things you like
and try to love the things you took
and then you take that love you made
and stick it into some–
someone else’s heart
pumping someone else’s blood

and walking arm in arm
you hope it don’t get harmed
but even if it does
you’ll just do it all again
on the radio
you hear november rain
that solo’s awful long
but it’s a nice refrain
you listen to it twice
cause the dj is asleep
on the radio…

What Bread’s Composition should be? Is there any doubt? This one!


What Bread's Composition should be? Is there any doubt? This one!

What Bread‘s Composition should be? Is there any doubt? This one!

There is  at least one reason fro which people get insanely fat in this country and cannot shake it off: It is the adulterated, reconstituted, artificially, industrially made prefabed foods sold to us: And yeas all brands of breads, are no exception!

If you ask me: “What Bread’s Composition should be?”  

I’ll tell you: “Is there any doubt? This one:

Wheat flower, rye flower, Water, Natural Sour, Yeast, Salt, Ground Caraway (may be) and especially Natural no fat“. You see this recipe did not change in the last thousand years , as much as it was change in the last twenty:  Long live CODEX, and our culinary leaders! 

 

The Traitor_Martha Wainwright_Leonard Cohen_I’m Your Man (“…But the Rose I sickened with a scarlet fever and the Swan I tempted with a sense of shame She said at last I was her finest lover and if she withered I would be to blame…”)


The Traitor_Martha Wainwright_Leonard Cohen_I’m Your Man

A divine composition based on a unique poem, made a complete Leonard Cohen pièce de résistance, and the rendition beyond the realm of words by Martha Wainwright not to forget the out of this world musical arrangement: I am so happy to be able to appreciate this historic moment of excellence in the making. The explanation given by Mr. Cohen to the meaning of the verse describes a predicament in which each and every one of us found ourselves at least once in life, which makes it our life story, within which we can dissolve completely.

The world is indeed the theater in which we’re actors, directors and spectators:

The traitor, by Leonard Cohen

Now the Swan it floated on the English river
Ah the Rose of High Romance it opened wide
A sun tanned woman yearned me through the summer
and the judges watched us from the other side

I told my mother “Mother I must leave you
preserve my room but do not shed a tear
Should rumour of a shabby ending reach you
it was half my fault and half the atmosphere”

But the Rose I sickened with a scarlet fever
and the Swan I tempted with a sense of shame
She said at last I was her finest lover
and if she withered I would be to blame

The judges said you missed it by a fraction
rise up and brace your troops for the attack
Ah the dreamers ride against the men of action
Oh see the men of action falling back

But I lingered on her thighs a fatal moment
I kissed her lips as though I thirsted still
My falsity had stung me like a hornet
The poison sank and it paralyzed my will

I could not move to warn all the younger soldiers
that they had been deserted from above
So on battlefields from here to Barcelona
I’m listed with the enemies of love

And long ago she said “I must be leaving,
Ah but keep my body here to lie upon
You can move it up and down and when I’m sleeping
Run some wire through that Rose and wind the Swan”

So daily I renew my idle duty
I touch her here and there — I know my place
I kiss her open mouth and I praise her beauty
and people call me traitor to my face.

Leonard Cohen:   “It was called “The traitor”…            It was about the feeling that we have of betraying some mission that we were mandated to fulfill, and being unable to fulfill it,
and then coming to understand that the real mandate was not to fulfill it,
and
that the deeper courage was to stand guiltless in the predicament in which you found yourself”.

I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine (1987-09-30 Munich)



Elston Gunn live Clearwater, Florida, 15/4/76
BOB DYLAN LYRICS

“I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine”

I dreamed I saw St. Augustine
Alive as you or me
Tearing through these quarters
In the utmost misery
With a blanket underneath his arm
And a coat of solid gold
Searching for the very souls
Whom already have been sold.

“Arise, arise”, he cried so loud
With a voice without restraint
“Come out ye gifted kings and queens
And hear my sad complaint
No martyr is among ye now
Whom you can call your own
So go on your way accordingly
But know you’re not alone”.

I dreamed I saw St. Augustine
Alive with fiery breath
And I dreamed I was amongst the ones
That put him out to death
Oh, I awoke in anger
So alone and terrified
I put my fingers against the glass
And bowed my head and cried.

Un conflict aproape uitat – Războiul din Coreea (1950-1953). VIDEO


CER SI PAMANT ROMANESC

 

 

    Cele două războaie mondiale, care prin urmările lor au determinat remodelarea întregului mapamond, au marcat puternic secolul XX. Sfârșitul celui de-Al Doilea Razboi Mondial a lăsat o lume întreagă traumatizată, prăbușită economic și financiar și totodată a pus față în față două mari puteri victorioase: S.U.A. și U.R.S.S.. Această rivalitate sovieto-americană a dominat relațiile internaționale, cele două puteri reprezentând actorii principali ai “Războiului Rece”.

Termenul este unul general care descrie conflictul politic, ideologic, strategic și militar de decenii dintre S.U.A. și aliații săi occidentali pe de-o parte și U.R.S.S. și alte țări comuniste pe de altă parte. Ambele tabere au descris adesea conflictul ca pe unul dintre capitalism și comunism, și nu ca pe unul dintre două state.

Perioada în care s-a desfășurat conflictul poate fi încadrată între sfârșitul celui de-Al Doilea Război Mondial și până la destrămarea U.R.S.S. în 1991[1]. Cele două puteri au încercat…

Ukrainian Green Borsch / Зелёный Борщ


what a treat

The Kat & the Falling Leaves

Ukrainian Green Borsch / Зелёный Борщ

Unlike its’ hearty cousin (red beet borsch ) with strong flavours that warm you up during cold winter days, this borsch is light and can be eaten hot or cold. It is known in all Eastern European cousins and sometimes also called Sorrel or Shchav Soup.

As with many other traditional recipes, there are endless variations of this borsch.  I am going to share the version made in my family.  I “eat with my eyes” first and 4 simple but colourful ingredients make this borsch very appetizing.

Green borsch is traditionally made from lemony sorrel.  I am yet to find sorrel in Toronto so I made it with spinach and some vinegar to re-create that light tangy flavor of sorrel.  You can substitute sorrel with any other leafy greens too (swiss chard, beet greens, etc).

TIP: Add your greens just before turning off the heat, or your borsch…

Horowitz plays Schumann Kinderszenen Scenes from Childhood



Robert Schumann
Kinderszenen (original spelling Kinderscenen, Scenes from Childhood) Opus 15

Vladimir Horowitz, piano

Kinderszenen (original spelling Kinderscenen, “Scenes from Childhood”), Opus 15, by Robert Schumann, is a set of thirteen pieces of music for piano written in 1838. In this work, Schumann provides us with his adult reminiscences of childhood. Schumann had originally written 30 movements for this work, but chose 13 for the final version. Robert Polansky has discussed the unused movements.

Nr. 7, Träumerei, is one of Schumann’s best known pieces; it was the title of a 1944 German biographical film on Robert Schumann. Träumerei is also the opening and closing musical theme in the 1947 Hollywood film Song of Love, starring Katharine Hepburn as Clara Wieck Schumann.

Schumann had originally labeled this work Leichte Stücke (Easy Pieces). Likewise, the section titles were only added after the completion of the music, and Schumann described the titles as “nothing more than delicate hints for execution and interpretation”. Timothy Taylor has discussed Schumann’s choice of titles for this work in the context of the changing situation of music in 19th century culture and economics.

In 1974, Eric Sams noted that there was no known complete manuscript of Kinderszenen.

Missy Higgins – Where I Stood



MISSY HIGGINS LYRICS

“Where I Stood”
I don’t know what I’ve done

Or if I like what I’ve begun
But something told me to run
And honey you know me it’s all or none

There were sounds in my head
LIttle voices whispering
That I should go and this should end
Oh and I found myself listening

‘Cos I dont know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

See I thought love was black and white
That it was wrong or it was right
But you ain’t leaving without a fight
And I think I am just as torn inside

‘Cos I dont know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

And I won’t be far from where you are if ever you should call
You meant more to me than anyone I ever loved at all
But you taught me how to trust myself and so I say to you
This is what I have to do

‘Cos I dont know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood
Oh, she who dares to stand where I stood

Leonard Cohen – A Thousand Kisses Deep (“…And summoned now to deal With your invincible defeat, You live your life as if it´s real A thousand kisses deep…”)



You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat.
You´d have to live alone to know
How good that feels, how sweet.
My mirror twin, my next of kin,
I´d know you in my sleep.
And who but you would take me in
A thousand kisses deep?

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat.
I´m just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet,
Who loved you with his frozen love
His second-hand physique –
With all he is, and all he was
A thousand kisses deep.

All soaked in sex, and pressed against
The limits of the sea:
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me.
We made it to the forward deck
I blessed our remnant fleet –
And then consented to be wrecked
A thousand kisses deep.

I know you had to lie to me,
I know you had to cheat.
But the Means no longer guarantee
The Virtue in Deceit.
That truth is bent, that beauty spent,
That style is obsolete –
Ever since the Holy Spirit went
A thousand kisses deep.

(So what about this Inner Light
That´s boundless and unique?
I´m slouching through another night
A thousand kisses deep.)

I´m turning tricks; I´m getting fixed,
I´m back on Boogie Street.
I tried to quit the business –
Hey, I´m lazy and I´m weak.
But sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go
A thousand kisses deep.

(And fragrant is the thought of you,
The file on you complete –
Except what we forgot to do
A thousand kisses deep.)

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat.
You win a while, and then it´s done –
Your little winning streak.
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat,
You live your life as if it´s real
A thousand kisses deep.

(I jammed with Diz and Dante –
I did not have their sweep –
But once or twice, they let me play
A thousand kisses deep.)

And I´m still working with the wine,
Still dancing cheek to cheek.
The band is playing “Auld Lang Syne” –
The heart will not retreat.
And maybe I had miles to drive,
And promises to keep –
You ditch it all to stay alive
A thousand kisses deep.

And now you are the Angel Death
And now the Paraclete;
And now you are the Savior’s Breath
And now the Belsen heap.
No turning from the threat of love,
No transcendental leap –
As witnessed here in time and blood
A thousand kisses deep.

Just a Thought: “Numerous long breaks Is the key to Great Success! “


Numerous long breaks
Is the key to Great Success! 

Quotation: Jerome K. Jerome


To the boy of twenty it seems impossible that he will not love as wildly at sixty as he does then … His love will never fall, whoever else’s may. Nobody ever loved as he loves, and so, of course, the rest of the world’s experience can be no guide in his case.

Pamela Lyndon “P. L.” Travers (1899)

Australian-born British actress, journalist, and novelist P. L. Travers is best remembered for her series of fictional children’s books about the prim, vain, imperious, acerbic, and mysteriously magical nanny Mary Poppins. The books were a great success, and Disney‘s award-winning 1964 film adaptation made the author even more famous. Travers worked as an adviser on the film, but in the end she was unhappy with it and never allowed anyone related to the production to adapt her work again. Why? More… Discuss

 

This Day in History: NATHAN AMES PATENTS HIS “REVOLVING STAIRS,” NOW KNOWN AS THE ESCALATOR (1859)


Nathan Ames Patents His “Revolving Stairs,” Now Known as the Escalator (1859)

Although no working model of his design was ever built, Ames is credited with patenting the first escalator. His idea for the “revolving stairs” was largely speculative. It was not until the 1890s that the first working escalator—called the “inclined elevator”—was produced, based on another’s designs. It was installed among the amusements at New York’s Coney Island but did not remain a novelty for long. How did shoppers react when Harrods in London debuted its first escalator in 1898? More…Discuss

 

MUSEUMGOERS, TAKE HEED!


Museumgoers, Take Heed!

An American tourist inFlorence, Italy, apparently never learned the fundamental rule of museum-going: “Look but don’t touch.” The visitor to the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo was trying to measure his own hand against that of a 600-year-old Giovanni d’Ambrogio statue of the Virgin Mary when he accidentally snapped off the statue’s pinkie. Art-lovers may be somewhat relieved to learn that the finger in question was from a later repair and not original to the sculpture. Still, the gaffe should serve as a reminder to all of us to keep our hands to ourselves when dealing with priceless works of art. More… Discuss
