i see the doll's head, but it's just an optical illusion. this photo reminds me of the train suicide i went to gawk at as a child. she laid down across the tracks and i remember seeing just a pair of severed legs on the side of the tracks. the joys of living down the street from the train.
Interesting. I always envied city kids for these deep insights into the more thanatal aspects of human existence.
I grew up literally inside a lovely forest and saw plenty of dead animals and weird naked hobos* on my long walks in the woods, but with all the thicket and branches you’re never actually sure whether you really saw these things or just imagined them, which is why I still react doubtfully to a statement like “it’s JUST an optical illusion”, because, visually and cerebrally, it’s still there - at least as an idea of an object.
I miss the woods.
* On a related note, I just realised that Die Dunkle Seite des Mondes is a damn fine book and if you like the topics discussed above, go read it.
the arabesque thingy at the middle of the shirt looks like the position of the guy ran over by the train. did i win? :)
You did indeed, mademoiselle. Chapeau!
Your prize is a medical triangle bandage from Thailand with very bad Engrish medical terms. It smells a bit like dried poo and puke. But you know, old friendly and sweet poo and perfumed upper-class puke like all old things.
the first pic is evidence of early juggalo culture, and the second pic is a juggalo who passed out on train tracks after drinking too much faygo redpop? Sorry, couldn't pass up an opportunity to hate on Insane Clown Posse.
Nah, sorry, it’s a purely visual thing, sir. I do like your plot though. Very well thought through indeed.
“Radikale Männer machen mir Angst. Wir entwerfen gerade mit Louise Bourgeois zusammen in Norwegen ein Monument für 91 Menschen, fast ausschließlich Frauen, die im 17. Jahrhundert von Männern, von der Kirche, als Hexen verbrannt wurden. Wenn Religiosität in Extremismus umschlägt, empfinde ich Angst. Das ist auch bei Islamisten so. Ich versuche mich mit dem Islam auseinander zu setzen, um zu verstehen, was da passiert. Wir müssen das durchdenken und durchfühlen. Wir müssen aus allen Kulturen heraus Aggressionen und Absolutheitsansprüche entlarven. Da bleibt noch viel zu tun.”— Peter Zumthor interviewed by Art
you should charge money for these tips, seriously man, you seem like a very helpful and altruistic person with lots of commn sense. how come youre so wise and can i ask how old you are and what you family background is? <-- hey look. question mark. lol :D
You know what? I think I will actually publish a monthly home and gardening mag entitled Household and Mental Saftey Tips from Fräulein Wurzeltod. It will include Venn diagrams of how to arrange your cutlery properly in times of great psychological turmoil and collectable cross stitched prayers.
I am indeed very wise. And oh so modest too. :)
I’ve been extremely wise and super intelligent from the moment I was born. I handed out general life and relationship advice to my parents when I was a toddler and was invited to give guest lectures at the Max Planck Institute on my 5th birthday.
But it was mainly my time in captivity in the Gulag and later on in the cannibal camps of Papua New Guinea that made me become a messiah with infinite knowledge and insight into the most clandestine secrets of this great universe.
I will be 31 on Val Day, my dad is a lawyer and a major in the army with access to the greatest bunkers in the land and the most intelligent individual I’ve ever come across, my mum’s a retired teacher and general superheroine and my brother’s a filmmaker and comedian.
What's wrong with Hebrew grammar problems? Joking....
Don't know if you know anything about music...
I'm a classical musician, I had a crisis a few years ago now that made me question my talent and made me basically question my entire reason for being here. I had depression. For nearly 5 years I was lost.
Recently I've gotten back into again. I realised I am talented, that I am good at what I do. But I feel ignored in the industry. I didn't do my main degree at THE university. I did one year at one of THE universities, but it's what lead me to feel so bad. Everyone was so snobby. I was hoping to make contacts. Made barely any, and I just feel like a failure because of this. I want to get more gigs and I want advice but I don't know who to ask. I could ask some of my old music teacher's from uni, but I feel scared.
People! Questions are interrogative sentences and one of their key structural components is a QUESTION MARK at the end of your inquiry.
Anyways, you didn’t tell me what instrument you play, so I’m not sure how to give you the best advice, but from my own experience with le piano, I can safely say that anxiety, depression and melancholy are the driving forces behind most good music.
If I were you, I would think towards the future now and not back at the things you missed out on in your education. They don’t matter.
If you live in a big city, go busking. London for instance has controlled pitches down in the tube (long waiting lists) and millions of people will hear your sound. Wear a bag over your head if you’re shy.
Play to lovers, offer professional window serenade services. Play in bars and at dog funerals. Get creative with your talent.
Also, grab one of the many classical music mags on offer and check out ads, enter contests, send out tapes, go on forums and ask fellow musicians for advice.
Can’t you children read anymore?! I learned it when I was 3.
Get yourself a copy of Der Struwwelpeter (Heinrich Hoffman), Der Anti-Struwwelpeter (F.K. Waechter) and Der Struwwelhitler (by Dr. Schrecklichkeit), read them in this order and you won’t ever ask for a goodnight story again. :)
