An author is a fool who, not content with boring those he lives with, insists on boring future generations.

Do give books - religious or otherwise - for Christmas. They're never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal.

Globalni orgazam

Sjećate se onog - ajmo svi na svijetu skakat u isto vrijeme or some such?
Well, to mi je bilo dosadno.

ALI -- this one sounds like fun...

Udruga Global O poziva općesvjetsko pučanstvo da proslavi solsticij (suncostaj, nije li?) na neobičan način - orgazmom. cerek

Želite li se priključiti, vrijeme je sutra, 22. prosinca, u 07:00. thumbup

Pa kažu:

WHERE? Everywhere in the world, but especially in countries with weapons of mass destruction and places where violence is used in place of mediation.

WHY? To effect positive change in the energy field of the Earth through input of the largest possible instantaneous surge of human biological, mental and spiritual energy.

writing as work

Mučim se na macanovoj (m)učionici i naravno, sinchronicity na djelu:

Writing is largely not considered work. Art in general is not considered work. Work is a thing you physically labor at, or at the very least, hate. Art is fun. (And Hollywood writers are overpaid, scarf-wearing dainties.) It’s an easy argument to make. And a hard one to dispute.


Writing is enjoyable and ephemeral. And it’s hard work.


(...) the ACT of writing is hard. When Buffy was flowing at its flowingest, David Greenwalt used to turn to me at some point during every torturous story-breaking session and say “Why is it still hard? When do we just get to be good at it?” I’ll only bore you with one theory: because every good story needs to be completely personal (so there are no guidelines) and completely universal (so it’s all been done). It’s just never simple.

Ispušni ventil, moj
Jarci, kažu, ujutro mrze sebe, a popodne cijeli svijet. Zmajevi, pak, rigaju vatru. I Jarčica i Zmajica, ponekad se, eto, naljutim. Krene logično, pravo jarčevski, a ubrzo odleti, poput zmaja, bez obzira na eventualnu gravitaciju argumenata koji letenje ni u teoriji ne dopuštaju. I zato sam ovdje: da mogu rantati preko svake mjere kad me pamet napusti, a vatra ispuni.

You have been warned.
