Laurie Anderson



Inolvidable...

The lost art of conversation

"Laurie Anderson seduce y emociona aun sin ver la traducción simultánea. Y al leer los subtítulos, todo eso que ya bulle bajo la piel, en la cabeza, en un lugar indefinible del cuerpo por mera transmisión de sensaciones, se potencia con lo que le dice al intelecto.(...)Ella es compositora, narradora y poeta, pero también una artista que toma una jugadísima posición política, sin caer nunca en lo panfletario o la rabieta por la rabieta misma. Alguien que se resiste a que todo sea simple show business, sea de la música o de la guerra."

Tal cual lo que dice en la nota. Lo viví así...

Los Siete Artes...

Escultura.... cuerpo
Arquitectura.... casa
Literatura.... viaje

Nanni Moretti

Director italiano a conocer...
Hoy buscando vh1(canal que no encontré) para ver un programa sobre sumo a las 22 hs, me detuve en Canal (á), y había un programa de El Amante Cine(la revista) donde hablaban sobre este director del cual nunca había escuchado, y quiero empezar a conocer...
Lau, vos viste algo de él?
Parece un cine muy copado(con humor) y, a la vez, muy cargado de crítica social!
Habrá que ver...
Después haré posts sobre las películas que vea de él..
Recomendaron: Caro diario, Aprile, Palombella rossa

Yo, por mi parte, les recomiendo ver el programa del amante en canal (á)>> www.canalaonline.com

The Great Dictator / El gran dictador (speech) - Charlie Chaplin





Ayer haciendo zapping agarré esta película, de 1940, dirigida por Charles Chaplin, en Europa Europa. Ya me habían dicho hace un tiempo que estaba muy bueno y la quería ver... y había leído parte de este discurso, que me había copado también, pero no había visto la película en sí.
No la ví entera porque ya había empezado, pero lo que ví ya me bastó para saber que está buenísima y se las recomiendo. Un groso Chaplin!
Perdón porque no lo encontré traducido al castellano...
El discurso final(conocido como el "Look up, Hannah!" speech) esta muuy bueno, son las palabras de un dueño de un barbershop, que es un doble del great dictator:

A Jewish Barber: I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible; Jew, Gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone, and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge as made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The airplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men; cries out for universal brotherhood; for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say, do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. Soldiers! Don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you; who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don't hate! Only the unloved hate; the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers! Don't fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it is written that the kingdom of God is within man, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy, let us use that power. Let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfill that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfill that promise. Let us fight to free the world! To do away with national barriers! To do away with greed, with hate and intolerance! Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness. Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us all unite! Hannah, can you hear me? Wherever you are, look up Hannah! The clouds are lifting! The sun is breaking through! We are coming out of the darkness into the light! We are coming into a new world; a kindlier world, where men will rise above their hate, their greed, and brutality. Look up, Hannah! The soul of man has been given wings and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow! Into the light of hope, into the future! The glorious future, that belongs to you, to me and to all of us. Look up, Hannah. Look up!

Saquen sus propias conclusiones...



"If life is not worth living songs are not worth singing"

No quiero ni traducirlo para no arruinar la pureza de esta frase tan linda...
La leí en el librito del cd "The best of Joy Division" y me encantó, por eso no quería dejar de mencionarla acá...
Cualquier comentario al respecto me encantaría, lo llamaría "feedback", retroalimentación.
Gracias a la música, gracias a los artistas

"El Árbol de la Vida" de Gustav Klimt

Me encanta Klimt(me lo presentó Ceci en el 2006 porque le encantaba "El Beso"), y desde ahí me copa específicamente "El Beso", que es muy conocido... pero el otro día estaba justamente buscando el beso y ví este que me fascinó también...
Me encantan los espirales, y esa estética de Klimt metida en un árbol hace que me gusten más todavía...
Todo tiene sentido... Cada uno le puede dar su propia interpretación: miren y sientan una OBRA DE ARTE, en mi opinión, digna de ser contemplada:

"My Body Is A Cage" - Arcade Fire

Buenísima la letra, y buenísimo el video... veánlo!

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

I'm standing on a stage
Of fear and self-doubt
It's a hollow play
But they'll clap anyway

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key

I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head

I'm living in an age
Whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key
My body is a

My body is a cage
We take what we're given
Just because you've forgotten
That don't mean you're forgiven

I'm living in an age
That screams my name at night
But when I get to the doorway
There's no one in sight

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key

Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free
