You must understand
That the touch of your hand
Makes my pulse react
That it`s only the thrill
Of boy meeting girl
Opposites attract

It`s physical
Only logical
You must try to ignore
That it means more than that

Oh whats love got to do, got to do with it
What`s love but a second hand emotion
What`s love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart
When a heart can be broken

It may seem to you
That i`m acting confused
When you`re close to me
If i tend to look dazed
I`ve read it someplace
I`ve got cause to be

There`s a name for it
There`s a phrase that fits
But whatever the reason
You do it for me


I`ve been thinking of a new direction
But i have to say
I`ve been thinking about my own protection
It scares me to feel this way

What`s love got to do, got to do with it
What`s love but a sweet old fashioned notion
What`s love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken

qui dice que los angeles no tengan mal?

It's the wrong time and the wrong place
Though your face is charming, it's the wrong face
It's not her face, but such a charming face
And it's alright with me

It's the wrong song with the wrong style
Though your smile is lovely, it's the wrong smile
It's not her smile, but such a lovely smile
That it's alright with me

You can't know how happy I am we met
I'm strangely attracted to you
There's someone I'm trying so hard to forget
Don't you wanna forget someone too

It's the wrong game with the wrong chips
Though your lips are tempting, they're the wrong lips
They're not her lips, but they're such tempting lips
That it's all right with me

It's the wrong time and the wrong place
Though your face is charming, it's the wrong face
It's not her face, but such a charming face
And it's alright with me

It's the wrong song with the wrong style
Though your smile is lovely, it's the wrong smile
It's not her smile, but a lovely smile
And it's alright with me

You can not know how happy I am we met
I'm strangely attracted to you
There's someone I'm trying so hard to forget
Don't you wanna forget someone too

It's the wrong game and the wrong chips
Though your lips are tempting, it's the wrong lips
They're not her lips, but they're such tempting lips
And it's all right with me

And it's all right, it's all right
It's all right with me
It's all right with me

Couleur cafe

J’aime ta couleur café
Tes cheveux café
Ta gorge café
J’aime quand pour moi tu danses
Alors j’entends murmurer
Tous tes bracelets
Jolis bracelets
À tes pieds ils se balancent

Que j’aime ta couleur

C’est quand même fou l’effet
L’effet que ça fait
De te voir rouler
Ainsi des yeux et des hanches
Si tu fais comme le café
Rien qu’à m’énerver
Rien qu’à m’exciter
Ce soir la nuit sera blanche

Que j’aime ta couleur

L’amour sans philosopher
C’est comm’ le café
Très vite passé
Mais que veux-tu que j’y fasse
On en a marr’ de café
Et c’est terminé
Pour tout oublier
On attend que ça se tasse

Que j’aime ta couleur

Howl's Moving Castle

The film starts off with the protagonist of Howl’s Moving Castle, Sophie, a timid and unsure 18-year-old girl who works in her late father's hat shop. She has a chance encounter with the mysterious wizard Howl(27 years old), who rescues her from some menacing soldiers. However, by doing so, Howl brings Sophie to the attention of the Witch of the Waste, who visits Sophie and puts a curse on her, transforming her into a 90-year old woman. Unable to tell anyone of the curse, she sets off on her journey to the Waste, to beg Howl to lift the curse. On the way she meets a magically animated scarecrow whom she names Turnip Head. Together they find Howl's moving castle.

This week started with a big loss.

A loss of youth.

The loss of an athlete, and the loss of his energy and life brougth despair in my heart and mind.

Hearing the screams of the family, my family, not able to do anything... I felt desperate, not able to comfort them... I felt ugly and old, very old. And that reminded me of Sophie, and her curse.

She looked old, because in her spirit she was old.

Her medicine was love, and defeating loneliness.

I am looking at my screen not knowing what else to bring in...

ps: if you want to see an extremely good manga, Howl's moving castle is an extreme good choice-as all of the Ghibli Studios.

dont you...

Talk to me softly

There's something in your eyes

Don't hang your head in sorrow

And please dont cry

I know how you feel inside

I'veI've been there before

Somethin's changin' inside you

And don't you know

Don't you cry tonight

I still love you baby

Don't you cry tonight

Don't you cry tonight

There's a heaven above you baby

And don't you cry tonight

Give me a whisper

And give me a sigh

Give me a kiss before youtell me goodbye

Don't you take it so hard now

And please don't take it so bad

I'll still be thinkin' of you

And the times we had...baby

And don't you cry tonight

Don't you cry tonight

Don't you cry tonight

Οι οθόνες στο μέλλον θα έρχονται σε επαφή με το μάτι. Μηχανικοί στις ΗΠΑ ανέπτυξαν έναν πειραματικό φακό επαφής με ενσωματωμένα κυκλώματα, φωτάκια και ασύρματους δέκτες, ο οποίος θα μπορούσε να χρησιμοποιηθεί ως προσωπική οθόνη για κάθε χρήση.
Η εμπορική αξιοποίηση της τεχνολογίας απέχει σίγουρα πολλά χρόνια, ωστόσο οι ερευνητές του Πανεπιστημίου της Ουάσινγκτον οραματίζονται ήδη φακούς για οδηγούς και πιλότους που προβάλλουν στο μάτι τις ενδείξεις των οργάνων, φακούς για βιντεοπαιχνίδια εικονικής πραγματικότητας, ή ακόμα και φακούς για σερφάρισμα σε ιστοσελίδες που κανείς άλλος δεν μπορεί να δει.
Κοιτώντας μέσα από τον φακό, ο χρήστης θα βλέπει δεδομένα και εικόνες που προβάλλονται ως υπερέκθεση πάνω στον πραγματικό κόσμο, εξηγούν σε ανακοίνωση του πανεπιστημίου ο καθηγητής Μπάμπακ Πάρβιζ και ο μεταπτυχιακός φοιτητής Χάρβεϊ Χο.
Το πρωτότυπο της συσκευής περιλαμβάνει τυπωμένα κυκλώματα, κόκκινες φωτοδιόδους (LED) και μια κεραία ραδιοκυμάτων. Μέχρι στιγμής έχει δοκιμαστεί σε κουνέλια, τα οποία ανέχονται το φακό στο μάτι για 20 λεπτά κάθε φορά χωρίς να ενοχλούνται ιδιαίτερα.
Η κατασκευή του φακού αποδείχθηκε σημαντική τεχνική πρόκληση, καθώς τα υλικά και οι μέθοδοι παραγωγής των κυκλωμάτων είναι ασύμβατα με τα οργανικά πολυμερή που χρησιμοποιούνται στους φακούς επαφής.
Τα κυκλώματα δημιουργήθηκαν ξεχωριστά από μεταλλικά στρώματα εξαιρετικά μικρού πάχους και στη συνέχεια συνδέθηκαν στις κατάλληλες υποδοχές πάνω στο φακό, μέσω μιας διαδικασίας «αυτοσυναρμολόγησης» που βασίζεται σε τριχοειδείς δυνάμεις, όπως αυτές που σπρώχνουν προς τα πάνω το νερό στις ρίζες των φυτών.
Πολλές προκλήσεις και εμπόδια δυσκολεύουν ακόμα το εγχείρημα. Ένα πρόβλημα είναι η πηγή ενέργειας που θα τροδοφοτεί τον φακό. Η κεραία του πρωτότυπου μπορεί να λαμβάνει ασύρματα ενέργεια από κοντινούς πομπούς ραδιοκυμάτων. Η λύση αυτή είναι απίθανο να επαρκεί, και οι επιστήμονες θα ήθελαν να πειραματιστούν και με ενσωματωμένα φωτοβολταϊκά στοιχεία.
Ένα άλλο βασικό πρόβλημα είναι η ποιότητα της εικόνας στις μελλοντικές συσκευές, καθώς το ανθρώπινο μάτι δεν μπορεί να εστιάσει τόσο κοντά, σε εικόνες που προβάλλονται πάνω στον κερατοειδή. Ωστόσο οι ερευνητές ελπίζουν να χειριστούν και να κατευθύνουν το φως ώστε η καθαρή εικόνα να φαίνεται να αιωρείται σε απόσταση μερικών μέτρων.

"Love is gone" David Ghetta

Thursday, September 20, 2007

Midori No Hibi or "I love Seiji" :P

Seiji Sawamura is the toughest student in his high school. His grades aren't very good because he fights more than he studies, but he tends to protect the weaker students from bullies. A few classmates idolize him; one (Midori Kasugano from a different school) shyly loves him from afar; but most are just afraid of him, which has made it impossible for him to find a girlfriend — until one morning when he wakes to find a miniature Midori attached to where his right hand used to be.

Seiji does his best to hide Midori from other people; she wears a bandage around her head and pretends to be his injured hand. Midori frequently professes her love to Seiji (even wearing a T-shirt which says "I ♥ Seiji"), but Seiji fails to notice, even as he frequently laments that he'll never find a girl who loves him.

“I always feel like a freak because I’m never able to move on just like that…
People just have an affair or even entire relationships, they break up and they forget. They move on like they would have changed brand of cereals. I feel I was never able to forget anyone I’ve been with because each person had their own specific qualities.
You can never replace anyone.
What is lost is lost.
Each relationship, when it ends, really damages me. I never fully recover. That’s why I’m very careful with getting involved, because It hurts too much.
I’m getting obsessed with little things.”

Celine, “Before Sunset”.

Mr.B vs Art Opinion

On my way to get an art opinion...
I am ready to give up... to go away and never show anything to anyone...
He appeared from nowhere and took a look at my "dossier".
Then he stopped at this one: here.
He was taking a closer look.
When Mr. B expressed his interest on buying it, if it was for sale...
I felt embarrassed and ashamed.
He didn't insist, just melted that it was worthy.
"I have given it to my sister, it's her call"
"Tell her it is valuable work"
He didn't insist.
He took out from his pocket a gadget.
It was a stamp, with his name and personal info.
Asked where his metro station was.
At the stop. He vanished.
I felt burning.
Than I took my art opinion.
What was the word?
It wasn't bad, but it's not enough...
Not for me...
I felt disappearing.

mon reve familier...

Je fais souvent ce rêve étrange et pénétrant D'une femme inconnue, et que j'aime, et qui m'aime,
Et qui n'est, chaque fois, ni tout à fait la même
Ni tout à fait une autre, et m'aime et me comprend.
Car elle me comprend, et mon cœur, transparent Pour elle seule, hélas ! cesse d'être un problème Pour elle seule, et les moiteurs de mon front blême,
Elle seule les sait rafraîchir, en pleurant.
Est-elle brune, blonde ou rousse ?Je l'ignore.
Son nom ? Je me souviens qu'il est doux et sonore
Comme ceux des aimés que la Vie exila.

Son regard est pareil au regard des statues,
Et, pour sa voix, lointaine, et calme, et grave, elle a
L'inflexion des voix chères qui se sont tues.
Paul Verlaine

A crowd of Muslims surround the Kabah in the Haram Mosque in Mecca. Tawaf, performed on arrival in the great Haram Mosque in Makkah, is completed by circling seven times around the Kabah, located in a great open area in the Haram Mosque. The Kabah is considered the spiritual and geographical center of Islam.

The Muslim view

Islamic scholars say that the Kaaba,the sacred edifice towards which all Muslims pray, was built by the patriarch Abraham and his son Ishmael. One of the cornerstones of the Kaaba, the Black Stone, was sent down from heaven. The Kaaba was the center of Islam, as revealed to Abraham and Ishmael, and it was maintained by Ishmael's descendants for generations. However, Ishmael's descendants, the Arabian tribes, fell into idolatry and filled the Kaaba with idols. They still remembered Allah, the one god, but accepted idols as his "associates". There were a few hanif who still maintained the pure Abrahamic faith, but they were few and had no power to cleanse the Kaaba. Then came Muhammad,the last prophet of Islam, and denounced idolatry. After he took power in Mecca, he destroyed the idols in the Kaaba and re-established the pure and ancient worship.
The Muslim view of the pre-Islamic religion, then, is that it was pagan, barbaric, and idolatrous. The most important gods were evidently
Hubal(the moon God/that's why there's a moon on muslim flags) and the three "daughters of God": Manat, Allat, and al-Uzza. Islamic traditions supply the names of hundreds of other gods as well. The Arabians sacrificed animals to the gods and made pilgrimages to cult centers. Mecca was only one of many cult centers.

girl vs woman

1: Susanita: what is in this callendar picture, mafalda?
mafalda: the photo of a spaceship.
2: mafalda: don't you get moved? it's like holding the future!!!
susanita: that's for sure!
3:susanita: it's truly very moving! it seems like a lipstick!
4:susanita: what's wrong? aren't you gonna use a lipstick when you'll get older? don't you get moved by THAT future?
mafalda: my goodness!!

I hear men talking... about women (mostly)!
and what they want is a Woman, NOT some girl... or girl in a body of a woman! they want to bite her till the bone... and they don't wanna have regrets after doing their job...

it's nature! i'm not blaming anyone... maybe one day i'll do that to!

My point is that I WISH to always remain a girl in the body of a woman... knowing how to control "my powers" but having my innocence preserved, even if slowly it's slipping away from me. And the day that i'll wake and would like to do the same thing that most men do i shall know that something died inside me.

if I was an actress..

I would have been Edward Norton :P

Beginning with 1996's Primal Fear. In the film, he took on the role of Aaron Stampler, a deeply disturbed young man accused of a brutal murder, for which he won a Golden Globe and a nomination for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. In 1998, his portrayal of a reformed neo-Nazi in American History X earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actorand his role as a card shark pitted him opposite Matt Damon in 1998's poker-playing hit Rounders. His blockbuster performance alongside Brad Pitt as the misanthropic narrator in the 1999 adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's cult novel Fight Club, however, exponentially expanded his growing cult fan base.

He played himself in a cameo role in the experimental comedy show Stella, and won critical acclaim for his uncredited role as the leper king of Jerusalem in Kingdom of Heaven. In 2006, he starred in the independent movie The Illusionist, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and later became a sleeper hit when it was released theatrically in August.

He has also done uncredited script work on some of the films he has appeared in, specifically Frida, which he claims to have written entirely, and The Score.

In 2000, he made his debut as a director with Keeping the Faith. He will also direct his film adaptation of the novel Motherless Brooklyn.

In 2006, the Academy Awards ceased offering gift baskets (containing items often valued at anywhere from $35,000 to $100,000 per basket) to performers and hosts at the ceremony, due to an IRS decision to audit actors and actresses who did not report these gifts as income on their tax returns. Norton spoke out in favor of this change, calling the baskets "obscene" and suggesting that money be donated to a charity of the winner's choice.

On April 16, 2007, it was confirmed that Norton will play the role of Bruce Banner in the upcoming movie adaptation of the Incredible Hulk in 2008.


He has put time and money toward social activist causes, including improving the quality of living in low-income communities.

Performed as a guest guitarist for two HOLE shows in Los Angeles in 1998.

Norton is generally known for his reluctance to embrace his celebrity status, and has said, "If I ever have to stop taking the subway, I'm gonna have a heart attack."

Yesterday's sailing day

it was HOT

there was NO wind

so we did a little cruise,
and a BIG stop!

BUT that doesnt mean it was NOT challenging LOL


Father's sorrow

Demain, des l'aube, a l'heure ou blanchit la campagne, Je partirai.
Vois-tu, je sais que tu m'attends.
J'irai par la foret, j'irai par la montagne
Je ne puis demeurer loin de toi plus longtemps.

Je marcherai les yeux fixes sur mes pensees,
Sans rien voir au dehors, sans entendre aucun bruit,
Seul, inconnu, le dos courbe, les mains croisees,
Triste, et le jour pour moi sera comme la nuit.

Je ne regarderai ni l'or du soir qui tombe,
Ni les voiles au loin descendants vers Harfleur
Et, quand j'arriverai, je mettrais sur ta tombe
Un bouquet de houx vert et de bruyere en fleur.

Victor Hugo. (this poem is dedicated to his daughters death)

Intacs inserts are clear, thin prescription inserts placed in the periphery of the cornea by an ophthalmologist during a brief outpatient procedure. Intacs inserts reshape the curvature of the cornea from within, enhancing the natural shape of your eye to correct mild nearsightedness. Because no tissue is removed, natural optics are enhanced and the structural integrity of the cornea is maintained.

Intacs inserts cannot be felt, are no more visible than a contact lens and require no maintenance. With Intacs inserts, many people are actually seeing better than 20/20. Intacs inserts are FDA approved and are supported by more than ten years of clinical studies.

And, because Intacs inserts are prescription inserts, they can be removed or replaced if you desire or if your vision needs change. In U.S. clinical studies, of the very few people who had their Intacs removed, all were subsequently corrected to 20/20 or better.

They are almost invisible in the eye and cannot be felt.

Imagine your cornea as a tent with a curved top. If you push out the sides of the tent, the top flattens. Similarly, when Intacs inserts are placed in the sides of the cornea, they flatten it just enough to correct myopia.(small myopia)

Genie is the name used for a feral child discovered by California authorities on November 4, 1970 in the Los Angeles suburb of Temple City. Her real name is Susan Wiley. She was born in April of 1957 and was the fourth (and second surviving) child to unstable parents, Irene and Clark Wiley. An older brother, John, also lived in the home. Her mother was partially blind due to cataracts and a detached retina, and her father (who was 20 years the mother's senior) was mentally unbalanced due to depression over his mother's death from a hit-and-run accident.
At the age of 20 months, Genie was just beginning to learn how to speak when a doctor told her family that she seemed to be developmentally disabled and possibly mildly retarded. Her father took the opinion to extremes, believing that she was profoundly retarded, and subjected her to severe confinement and ritual ill-treatment in an attempt to "protect" her.
Genie had spent her life locked in her bedroom. During the day, she was tied to a child's potty chair in diapers; and most nights, she was then bound in a sleeping bag and placed in an enclosed crib with a metal lid to keep her shut inside. Her father would beat her every time she vocalized and he barked and growled at her like a dog in order to keep her quiet; he also rarely allowed his wife and son to leave the house or even to speak, and expressly forbade them from ever speaking to Genie. By the age of 13, Genie was almost entirely mute, commanding a vocabulary of only about 20 words and a few short phrases (nearly all negative) such as "stop it" and "no more."
Mockingbird Don't Sing is an American independent film which is based on the true story of Genie, a modern-day feral child. The film is told from the point of view of Dr. Susan Curtiss (whose fictitious name is Sandra Tannen), a professor of linguistics at Los Angeles. Although the film is based on a true story, all of the names are fictitious for legal reasons. The name "Genie" has been changed to "Katie". The film was released to US audiences on May 4, 2001.
I definetly recommend it.

Your Dominant Intelligence is: Spatial Intelligence

You've got a good sense of space and how the world around you looks.
You can close your eyes and "see" images.
You have innate artistic talent.
An eye for color and shapes, you're also a natural designer.
Since you think in pictures,
visual aids and demonstartions help you learn best.
You would make a good navigator, sculptor, visual artist,
inventor, architect, interior designer, or engineer.

Finally the results weren't soooo bad!

On ne badine pas avec l'amour...

On ne badine pas avec l'amour est une pièce de théâtre d'Alfred de Musset, publiée en 1834 dans La Revue des Deux Mondes et représentée le 18 novembre 1861 à la Comédie-Française.

La pièce se déroule au XVIe siècle, elle a pour principaux personnages une jeune fille, Camille, qui sort du couvent, et son cousin Perdican, fraîchement diplômé de l'université.

Perdican aime Camille, mais tous deux sont trop hautains pour s’avouer leurs sentiments. Pour pousser Camille à se révéler, Perdican décide de séduire Rosette, la sœur de lait de Camille, dans le but de rendre cette dernière jalouse. Celui-ci arrive à ses fins, mais lors de leur premier baiser, Rosette, amoureuse de Perdican, les aperçoit et pousse un cri strident. Rosette se tue et Camille, mise au courant du stratagème de Perdican, le quitte.

Le titre sonne comme un avertissement : On ne badine pas avec l'amour, sinon...

Il ne faut pas omettre de mentionner les personnages secondaires : dame Pluche, maître Blazius, le baron, dont la puérilité et le grotesque font ressortir tout le tragique de la situation de trois enfants qui jouent avec leur cœur... Une pièce pleine de drôlerie et de finesse, à dévorer.

Humidity is rising

Barometer's getting low

According to our sources

The street's the place to go!!!!

There'll be times

When my crimes

Will seem almost unforgivable

I give in to sin

Because you have to make this life livable

But when you think I've had enough

From your sea of love

I'll take more than another riverful

And I'll make it all worthwhile

I'll make your heart smile
