Sylvia Plath at seventeen, 1949
the more of the world we see, the richer we become
my two favorite things: bunnies and sheldon
told myself that you were right for me
but felt so lonely in your company
”Žao mi je! Žao mi je što nismo otišli na to evropsko. Žao mi je što nemamo autoput, što imamo više od pola miliona nezaposlenih, što nam na vrhu sjede šupljoglavci, raspiruju nacionalizam, godinama nas levate.
Žao mi je što su mnogi od nas djetinjstvo proveli u podrumu. Žao mi je što nas ne poznaju, pa nas potcjenjuju. Žao mi je, jer znam da bi ulice svih gradova u Bosni i Hercegovini sinoć i svaku slijedecu noć izgledale veličanstveno - da je bilo drugačije.
Ali mi je neizmjerno drago što nisam rođen ni u Parizu, ni u Danskoj, ni u Portugalu: zemljama gdje imaju velike stadione, a hladnu publiku, kojoj moraš “uzdurisati” premoćan razglas da bi ih afirmisao da navijaju barem 2 minute.
Drago mi je, jer u ovoj našoj hladnoj, gladnoj i siromašnoj zemlji, kad te “strefi” nešto na sred ulice, još uvijek ima onih koji će ti prići i pomoći, bez obzira na sve. Jer te komšija zovne na roštilj iako je na birou pola godine, nema nikakva primanja i udara glavom od zid razmišljajući od čega će uplatiti zaostalu ratu kredita.
Ovdje se ne živi samo da bi se umrlo, ovdje se i umire da bi se živjelo! Ovo je moja Bosna!” - Emir Spahic, grof
Vedran Smajlović performs in Sarajevo’s partially destroyed National Library in 1992. Smailović became famous by taking his cello into the streets of Sarajevo during the siege. Regularly playing his cello in ruined buildings during the siege of Sarajevo, most notably performing Albinoni’s Adagio in G Minor. He protested against violence and murder by playing during bombings and funerals. He left the city in 1993 and never played again in his hometown. Till the 5th of April 2012.

11,541 red chairs on the main street to symbolize the lives lost in Sarajevo (1992-1996) during the longest siege of a capital city in the history of the modern warfare
Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina - On April 6, Sarajevo is marking 20 years since the beginning of the longest siege in modern history, during which Serb forces killed 11,541 of its citizens - more than 1,000 of them children - with grenades and snipers.
A concert entitled “Sarajevo Red Line” will be held in the memory of those killed during the 1992-1996 siege of Sarajevo. Its organisers want to send a message to the world, not to repeat such slaughter.
Nobody will sit on the 11,541 chairs placed in Sarajevo’s centre. “The chairs being placed over 800 metres will remain empty on April 6, because the people killed during the siege are unable to attend the show. They were civilians and Sarajevo’s defenders,” said Haris Pasovic, project organiser and theatre director.”

if this really was a “prankumentary” then it was definitely genius!
the documentary is a good portrayal of what people with absolute no talent and a huge passion for money and scheming do to become successful. it’s what defines the two types of people that exist in life. “most people are other people. their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation (O.Wilde).” it’s also a good portrayal of the people we look up to in today’s society. this is how people become famous and filthy rich for all the wrong reasons. “Mr. Brainwash” is exactly what he claims to be and lives up to it and yet his show sold out 1 million dollars worth of fake art despite his subliminal message to us: that he is really brainwashing us. It’s like someone spending their whole life to become a doctor, and you become one overnight by figuring out how to put a bandaid over a wound.
Banksy: I don’t know what it means, Thierry is huge success and a rival in the art world. I mean, maybe, Thierry was a genius all along. Maybe, he got a bit lucky. Maybe, it means art is a bit of a joke.
or maybe the joke is on society and our obsession over originality, money, whats in, whats hot, and craving the unknown. basically anyone can mimic your life with the right tools, passion, and tactics. be aware of who you let in or choose to “help out” people are smarter than they appear.
Sheperd Fairy: It is anthropologically, sociologically it’s a fascinating thing to observe and maybe there’s some things to be learned from it.
ever go through a phase where everything about your life just bothers you? everything is just dawning on you. you feel like life is catching up to you. ever want more out of life than what you currently have? a feeling of accomplishment but not satisfaction. its not selfish. but sometimes its good to be selfish. especially if its keeping you from doing what you want or feel the need to do. the need to breakaway but the fear of losing everything you’re leaving behind? ever feel like something is pulling at you in a different direction? but it just doesn’t come that easy. ever felt a passion or zest for life and living but held back by your conscience?
