UM TEXTO DE 2012

by noreply@blogger.com (Laerte)
LADY GAGA E O PROCESSO CRIATIVO

Numa entrevista à revista Rolling Stone, Lady Gaga diz que não faz análise porque não quer correr o risco de bloquear seu processo criativo.

Gosto dela - não tanto da música (sou meio pentelha nesse assunto), mas desse jeitão de dizer qualquer coisa sem medo e se comportar como se fosse uma celebridade milionária - coisa que ela é, mas funcionaria também se não fosse.
A Bia, linda travesti que mora aqui perto, age do mesmo jeito e também é fascinante.

Voltando ao assunto, uma vez o humorista Jaguar, meu mestre querido, disse coisa parecida.
Que tinha receio de não conseguir mais escrever e desenhar se viesse a “conhecer a si mesmo”.

Confesso que já senti o mesmo.
Ao longo da vida, sempre fiz alguma forma de terapia - análise, mesmo, só recentemente -, mas sempre sob o bafo desse medo.

Achava que o fluxo das ideias e dos sentimentos que produzem uma história, um desenho, passa necessariamente pela zona de sombra e dubiedade da nossa loucura particular - e que tentar acessar algum ponto de clareza pode desmobilizar esse ímpeto, interromper este fluxo.

Achava que a doideira precisa ser doida mesmo, pra que não se cubra do clichê das convicções gerais, das ideias prontas, do bom-senso óbvio e tedioso.

Hoje suspeito do contrário.
Ou melhor, suspeito que existam essas duas possibilidades, em momentos diferentes da vida - ou em pessoas diversas, como diversas são as pessoas nesse mundo.

Sinto que existe um cenário de dificuldade - o famoso bloqueio criativo - que é resultado justamente da falta de acesso às nossas áreas malditas.

Porque ali se encontram horrores, sim - mas também a razão que nos faz dar os passos que damos, escolher as palavras ou os traços que escolhemos.
Ali estão nossos medos e a nossa saída.

Margaret Atwood, eu seu livro “Negociando com os Mortos”, discorre sobre o movimento que fazem os escritores em busca de sua literatura, da força vital em sua literatura - e sobre a necessidade desse mergulho.
É essa a essência do primeiro romance da história, a epopéia de Gilgamesh - o mergulho, o retorno e o relato.

O autor Lourenço Mutarelli afirma ter ido ao inferno, voltado e marcado o caminho pra poder transitar quando precisa.

Lady Gaga pode não ter feito análise, mas, pela força da sua arte (eu sou meio pentelha mas sei reconhecer…), certamente achou sua própria trilha no mapa complexo das mentes e dos corações.

Lovable Lynx Living Large

by Lisa Marcus




This Canada lynx kitten named Jasper seems to be having a ball at the Point Defiance Zoo, between the love he gets from keepers and admirers and his fondness for play. The nine-week-old kitten weighs approximately four pounds and is being hand-reared by zoo staff.

The Canada lynx is native to North America, specifically to Canada, Alaska and the northernmost parts of the United States. Adults of the species weigh 18 to 24 pounds on average and measure 19 to 22 inches in height. 

The lynx is typically a solitary animal, although it may occasionally roam in small groups. The lynx roams anywhere from 1.5 to 3 miles per day. As they take shelter in areas of dense forest, they usually stay close to the treeline, however they generally like to swim. One researcher recorded a lynx swimming two miles across the Yukon River.

The Love Series

by Miss Cellania

Gavin Aung Than of Zen Pencils began a series of comics over a year ago that addresses the nature of love based on quotes from not-so-ancient philosophers such as C.S. Lewis, Albert Camus, and William Shakespeare. This is an excerpt from part one, which actually gets better as it goes along. Part two continues the relationship, and part three was supposed to be hopeful, but upset many loyal readers. Particularly Mrs. Zen Pencils. So eight months later, part four was published today as a gift to Than’s wife, and is a delight to those who have been wondering what happened to the characters. Each comic can stand alone. Will there be more installments? I hope so!

bisexual-community:

The 16 most inspiring things about bisexual artist Frida KahloMexican painter Frida Kahlo was born 107 years ago today July 6, 1907. A feisty free spirit who blazed her own trail and inspired everyone around her.

Frida Kahlo is one of the most revered artists to come from 20th century Mexico. Her distinctive look and style are instantly recognizable and she has been called a diva, a muse and a feminist icon.

A force of nature perhaps best summed up by an art critic who saw one of her very first exhibitions and said: ‘It is impossible to separate the life and work of this extraordinary person. Her paintings are her biography.’

She fought through a great deal of adversity during her life. At the age of six she contracted polio, when she was 18 she was badly injured in a bus crash and later in life she suffered several miscarriages … Kahlo never lost her passion for life. She was well known as an extremely quick witted and sharp woman, always the centre of attention wherever she was. Her strength of character has made her an emblem of hope and determination for many.

Art historians usually focus on her relationship with fellow Mexican painter Diego Rivera (whom she married, divorced and then married again) and her affair with Communist leader Leon Trotsky. But Kahlo was bisexual, and made no secret of her affairs and relationships with women as well as men. Kahlo was linked with African American entertainer Josephine Baker, American painter Georgia O’Keeffe and Mexican singer Chavela Vargas.

Photographers were captivated by her beauty. She was a muse to photographer Nickolas Murray who loved to take her picture in her sumptuous Mexican clothes.

Her work has been exhibited in art galleries all over the world, her diary has been published and many authors have written biographies of her extraordinary life.The house she lived in is now a museum. La Casa Azul is filled with trinkets and treasure collected by Kahlo during her life and is one of the biggest cultural attractions in Mexico.

She defied classification of her work. Art critics tried to label her as a Surrealist painter, which was very trendy at the time, but she defied this label, instead saying: ‘They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.’

In 1938 André Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, described Kahlo’s art as a "ribbon around a bomb".

YESSSSS. I saw the images first and I was like “Ughhh I bet they’re not going to mention her bisexuality”. And then BOOM!

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”
