RIO.

This animated movie called ‘Rio’ is yet to be released sometime in 2011. The makers of the ‘Ice Age’ seem busy indeed? 20th Century Fox put out a trailer for Blue Sky’s animated movie which is below.

It intially looks great, but i hear concerns from some Brazilians.. “will it be in Spanish, coz we don’t speak spanish”….. “what lame stereotypes will they hang on us again?”

Lets wait and see huh? Brazil is a complex place, a country supposedly growing economically whilst many wallow in squalor, where favela’s sprawl, violence path its streets and the richer get richer, whilst all clammer for the relief of once a year throwing it all away for carnivale’.

The beauty and granduer that is brazil would make for many a movie and so i wait anxiously for what i hope is an animated jem!

My Wish List.

I hate wanting things, but yet i love longing for things, this is our modern life, the wanting of stuff. Stuff that isn’t crucial to living though, for we are still able to get on each day, work, eat and go to bed at night, so really these wants are not important if we never get them, right? The balance between what we want and what we need reflects our contentment or lack there of, where do your scales tip?

But…. anyway, here’s some things i want, but really don’t  need!

Alex Steinweiss: Creator of the Modern Album Cover

(Limited Edition) [Hardcover]

Steven Heller (Author), Kevin Reagan (Author, Editor), Alex Steiweiss (Author)

Price: $ 500.00

Miles Davis: ESP record, not on CD or Mp3 …. but on wax! That’s how i want it… some people may get what i am saying here? First released in 1965.  You can get it for various prices online, ranging from 5pounds to $50?

Now i have ” A LOVE SUPREME” on cd &  MP3, bt the deal is to have it on record, anyone who enjoys watching a sunset and slowly sinking a amber, hard or cool drink would get me here? What i think is one of John Coltrane’s seminal recordings! Pricing ranges from $20 to $200…… depends on what you know and what they don’t or do know? 🙂

*More to come on this list!!

Interestingness!

Some people find some things interesting, whilst others have no interest in them at all, here are a few things that to me are filled with INTERESTINGNESS! hehehehe!

1) Design similarity in some Viking and Pict stone carvings.

Another and more clearer version of the Jelling Stone, commissioned by King Harald Bluetooth in 965 here.

Also… this wee beasty, a painted replica.

*Note the thick interwining knots, they bare a line running through the middle.

And here. A Norwegian snake or reptile design.

Now look here>>> Migvie Stone <<<< Pictish Cross.

There are some better examples of this in other works, i will try to track some imaes down!

2) Similar themes and subject matter in Pictish and European Celtic carvings.

A Gaulish version of Cernunnos

Cernunnos or a snake witch as interpreted by some, from Sweden.

Cerunnous or snake witch on the Miegle pictish stone, Scotland.

I am not suggesting anything here, just think its interesting, make of the similarities what you will?

A few things on my chest?

Have you ever been over come with emotion? Have you ever been filled with a longing that you know could never be? Has your love felt expanded and  hedged about, the weight of its desire a heavy burden, leading to a sufferance in doing what is right, the making of a sacrifice?

Below are things for the hell of it or so you may think, because i can not do a thing, i am confronted by things that live without my choice, to do nothing is by default my decision, i can only let be and thus deprive me, I to be last in order to out last.
