It Was So Cold  gifby Whitman McGowan
Paris, February 1986
The horses on the carousel refused to budge.
Notes of music froze and
shattered with prismatic finality…
The mimes couldn’t change their expressions.
When a bread truck overturned and
baguettes were suspended in mid-air
pigeons were afraid to leave their roosts for the feast.
Women in expensive fur hats could not retract icy stares.
Rats went skating on rivers of frozen dog piss.
Double busses refused to straighten out
continued running in circles indefinitely.
Terrorist bombs exploded in  s l o w   m o t i o n
allowing everyone to escape harm.
A fountain in the Place Edmond Rostand became
a crystal pineapple inhabited by eskimos.
A Norwegian with a pickax broke off pieces for souvenirs.
Outside Paris waterfalls retreated back into mountains.
God Himself became an irrelevant ice cream vendor
slowly scooping a ball of lemon sherbet
from horizon to painted horizon.

Melancholia by Lars von Trier

 
Recently, I've been intrigued by this new film. I think I like it. It has beautiful photography and costumes. It shows some nudes but very subtle and apparently with no means of lustfulness.

Personality Test Results

I just did a very 'interesting and amusing' -if I can say it- test... I'm so obssesed with the wonderfulness of Nature, I mean it's surprising how everyone -even animals- behave, move, make sounds, smell... in a certain-unique way.
Well, my test revealed 3 important points:
A-Complexity
B-Imagination
C-Sensibility

These three things where in high levels, which means that somehow I'm a little bit intelectual and don't want to be traditional. Second, I have a tendecy to dive into my thoughts and I can get distracted. And third, my emotional side fights for me to listen to it.
