I really meditate about images and specially images on struggles and political topic. I love illustrations on Earth First! and radical ecology. It’s so punchy and romantic. But those pictures cannot substitute a struggle. Like no picture will substitute the forest or the dying earth.
Have a look on Susan Simensky Bietila, Emma Roulette or Sarah Quinter’s work. It’s amaizing. Continue reading “those pictures cannot substitute…”
Subrosa is an unsurpassed sludge doom band from States. Dissonance and electric violins make the atmosphere of music even more dismal. If you don’t like first time you’re listening it, listen again it will haunt you. I was touched by this clip. It’s like a fairy tale about discrimination and it’s consequences.
A friend of mine wrote everyday a list-to-do. For every rendez-vous, people to call, things to do at home like “washing dishes” or “watering cabbages”. I found it really funny and unusual until the day i started to do it for myself. I hate lists-to-do. No matter if it’s a piece of paper of a proper list wrote in a note-book, i loose it cause it’s always a “stress-reminder”. Another day my friend told me about her wish-list and it’s was the beginning of a new story or a pretext to talk with drunk people.
For the next Fire Zine issue the topic is “List-to-do vs Wish-list”. I have all my time to think about the concept and maybe write some texts. Actually i don’t know if this zine project is something i really want or it’s just a kind of “contribution” or something like “it could be nice to do it”. The topic fix with with project. “Project” was the topic i fixed the last time and it’s too large. The theme just swallowed me and i couldn’t structure my ideas and things to share. Project can be anything. What’s not possible to avoid the discussion on utopia and deceptions. I love those crazy plans people can make together. It looks really unrealistic and suddenly it works ! And maybe the recipes to turn plan in a project it’s the will. If people want to do something, they don’t need to cry on list-to-do, they are suddenly motivate and go on !

I experiment a lot with wordpress themes, and time to time … nothing works ! Probably you think it’s really nasty and ugly. You’re right, but it still my blog. I’m drawing flowers for Tumult and think about my friend in Alps. She’s surrounded by mountains. So i draw them. Actually i had her at the phone and she’s studying and drawing flowers too. Maybe it’s a kind of summer mood!
