“Cease your sniveling! Pity and weakness are synonymous. Remorse is forbidden. Compunction is forbidden. Do you understand?”

Think about the photo before and after, never during. The secret is to take your time. You mustn’t go too fast. The subject must forget about you. Then, however, you must be very quick.

Madrid, martie 2014

Să nu-ncerci viaţa s-o pricepi,
atunci se face sărbătoare.
Şi fiecare zi s-o-ncepi,
ca un copil ce, pe cărare,
primeşte darul, numai floare,
al adierilor ce trec.

S-adune florile-n buchet,
Nu-i trece pruncului prin minte.
Din păr el le desface-ncet,
Întinde mâinile-nainte,
Si cere altele, fierbinte,
La anii tineri, care-ncep.

(Rainer Maria Rilke, Să nu-ncerci viaţa s-o pricepi)

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills
and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown,
engines on
Check ignition
and may God’s love be with you

[spoken]
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Liftoff

This is Ground Control
to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule
if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating
in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

Though I’m past
one hundred thousand miles
I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much
she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit’s dead,
there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you….

Here am I floating
round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do.

I love everything about Her

(Photo: Bruxelles, Grand Place)

I love everything about her

If you are a photographer, you sure want to see ~Her~ because of its exceptional cinematography and powerful close-ups. Joaquin Phoenix shines.

Also if you’re fed up with bullets-blood-cars-exploding-cheap-‘busters, you might find peace in this movie. ~Her~ moves at a slow pace which allows you to breathe, think and feel. Slow food vs. McShit cardboard taste burgers.

Talk about closing with a bang. Spike Jonze’s long-awaited original film about a writer that falls in love with his operating system is not only the best film to play at this year’s New York Film Festival; it very well could be the very best film of the year. “Her” is the finest writing and directorial endeavor of Spike Jonze’s career. And then there’s the towering and crowning work of Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix who proves once again, he’s the finest actor working today, hands down. You can’t find a more dynamic and compelling story about the human connection and where we’re headed as a society.

When “Her” opens up, it snaps you immediately into the story. Phoenix plays Theodore, a writer for a website that makes letters for just about anyone. As he tries to find life during the midst of his divorce from his wife Catherine (played by a beautiful Rooney Mara), Theodore finds solace in a friendship with a new OS (operating system) named Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). The two develop a relationship in a world where OS’s are becoming the norm with society.
