sleep deprivation No 435

Sometimes I have some sleeping troubles, some people blame the coffee, some other adviced hash, the neurologist gave me triptanol or something like that... I hated all that bollocks... Feng Shui -or whatever it is written- says that if your head is pointed towards the north you will have a golden slumber... a tight night... bollocks... Good luck Jesus, your dad is drunk!... have you got his mobile number? please!!!... Yesterday I phoned "heaven's customer service" someone picked up and asked me to wait for twenty three years... I found it a bit unfair...

-Hello?...
-Hi, thanks for calling Heaven's customer services, if you have a complain, please press one, if you want to p...

-Hello?...


Fuck this shit!....

Ma! I need my morphine, the sun has gone...needles & blades Autumn collection/06

Being self indulgent and very very apologetic for a two or three weeks absence (the reasons though were out of my own control and vary from a stint of repetitive head aches, flu, loads of work, and the end of holidays to of course a huge component of inexcuasable lazyness- I am posting a quick one.





This time I want to share a video by Morphine.

Morphine was formed by Mark Sandman and Dan Colley in 1989 in Cambridge, Massachussets. They combined blues and jazz and gave to the band a unique sound, the instrumentation they used was also very unusual which make its music highly poignant. Morphine was disbanded after Sandman's death in 1999 on stage in Italy due to a heart attack. Although Morphine was a great band it was not commercially successful.

Stop Israel’s war: solidarity with the resistance



George Bush
has given Israel the green light to tear Lebanon asunder and to destroy the resistance forces of Hizbollah. By Tuesday, Israeli forces had killed some 400 people, the vast majority civilians, and driven up to one million Lebanese from their homes.
Israel has used cluster bombs and phosphorous bombs, deliberately attacked ambulances and reduced large parts of the Lebanese capital Beirut to rubble. Read more

Stasia Therese Angela Micula



Stasia Therese Angela Micula más conocida como Samantha Fox nació un 3 de Diciembre de 1951 en New York. Entre 1977 y 1984 ésta pequena pero voluptuosa actriz dió lo mejor de si ante las cámaras filmando una cifra record de más de cien peliculas pornográficas, alternando escenario con destacados actores del medio y siendo dirigida por reconocidos directores como Chuck Vincent (del cual me vine a enterar al investigar sobre Samantha).

Su tesón y entrega ante las cámaras fué justamente honrado al ganar en dos ocasiones el "Adult Film Association of America" a mejor actriz de "reparto" por "Jack 'n' Jill" parte 1 en 1979 y "this lady tramp" en 1980.

Luego de desfilar por diferentes escenarios Sammy decide convertirse en una artista integral y lanza su carrera como cantante pop, sobra anotar que aunque su carrera músical fué meteórica, más alcanzo cierta popularidad.(popularidad mundialmente reconocida entre los jovenes de la epoca, especialmente los de sexo masculino). De esta efÍmera carrera quiero destacar el video de la canción "touch me" de los hediondos anios ochentas de los que fuimos victimas. Notese que ese natural talento actoral desarrolló en Sammy una impresionante habilidad para sostener los micrófonos en los escenarios (sÍ en ambos medios).

Sammy dejó este valle de lágrimas (el cual disfrutó a más no poder) en el 2002 debido a un cáncer de pulmón (que si mal no estoy se debió a una pulmonÍa que pescó en una épica escena en la cual la diva deberÍa aparecer casi desnuda mientras intentaba domar un caballo con jinete y todo.

Samantha Fox ha sido imitada por muchas actrices del medio criollo, las cuales ya han iniciado su carrera de la misma manera que la diva Norteamericana.

Paz en la tumba de Samantha Foxx!

PD: Sammy es especialmente recordada por un concierto realizado en Colombia el cual mojó bastante prensa especialmente en las últimas páginas de algunos periódicos locales.

Allen Jones, a creator of saucy furniture.

Born in 1937 at Southampton, studied painting and lithography from 1955 to 1961 at Horsney College of Art in London, where the teaching method was based largely on Klee's "Pedagogical Sketchbook". During this period he travelled to Provence and to Paris, where he was highly impressed by the work of Delaunay. In 1959 he visited the Musie Fernand Liger in Biot. In 1960 he was expelled from the Royal College of Art, where he had studied with R. B. Kitaj, Peter Phillips, David Hockney and Derek Boshier.

Robert Indiana ::::LOVE::::

Robert Indiana (born September 13, 1928) is an American artist associated with the Pop Art movement. Indiana was born Robert Clark in New Castle, Indiana.
Indiana moved to New York City in 1954 and joined the pop art movement, using distinctive imagery drawing on commercial art approaches blended with existentialism, that gradually moved toward what Indiana calls "sculptural poems". Indiana's work often consists of bold, simple, iconic images, especially numbers and short words like "EAT", "HUG", and "LOVE" (this last shown above). He is also known for painting the unique basketball court formerly used by the Milwaukee Bucks in that city's U.S. Cellular Arena, with a large M shape taking up each half of the court... read more
