Strange albums for Anne

This is a list of albums, music scores and so onAlso I will point out one song from the album, but in some cases this song will be much different then the rest of the album so beware. The reason for this is that some of this albums are rather complex, so every song is different.Also, most of this sounds horrible at first hearing, but after like ten times it finally sinks under the skin.p.s. The reason why it took me so long to write this list is because, if I start to listen to this songs or…See More

Dark and unordinary films II: now with animation!

In my first list I was avoiding films labeled as horrors, but this time I will put such films only because I consider that they have a deeper meaning. Some of this films only have some dark scenes but are not overall dark. And also I consider existential horror to be very dark.waiting for godot 2001Ikiru (to live) 1952 eraserhead 1977, the grandmother 1970, the elephant man 1980 Mary and Max 2009 and anything else from Adam Elliot (clay-animated films!) perfect blue 1997 (inspired the next…See More

I've watched a lot of films and I've noticed that there are sometimes film that you just can't put your finger on them, all you can say is that they are dark in atmosphere, unordinary, unhollywoodlike...



No particular order:

The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey 1988

Tenshi no Tamago (Angel's egg) 1985

La Cité des enfants perdus (City of lost children) 1995

Tideland 2005

Paperhouse 1988

The fall 2006

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover…

Friday and Winning

Posted on April 10, 2011 at 7:32am 1 Comment

Don't you ever get that strange feeling that worlds have suddenly changed their meaning like Winning (because of Sheen) and Friday (because of R. Black).

I mean, this are common words, but when ever someone utters them I get this horrifying flashback of how you are minding your own business and the stupidity just forces it's way in, and then you become a part of this great carnival of stupidity we call popular culture. You just feel unclean like you are still a toddler with…

Oh yes! I shall go look now... I have enjoyed what you have already posted and am working my way through that list.

(Wherever did that comment go? I am glad that it reached me via email since it disappeared from the comment section.)

Thank you for your kindness. I am glad you enjoyed the small selection I posted. I have some of them now on my playlist. Richard Moult just released a new cd. I had made a video clip of it (containing his artwork) some time ago.

Thank you for the list... I will have to watch all of the clips you have kindly shared in due time. Why should I be disappointed with your list of books? Disappointment would indicate a presumption on my part and I presume nothing...  I just enjoy life unfolding in all of its fantastical mysteriousness. Each person is a new world to discover.

I'm looking forward to that list. What about books?

Thank you most kindly. Yes... music! I will have to think about that and let you know. Art (including GOOD films) and music are such wonderful landscapes in which to wander the depths of our humanity. I look forward to discovering new vistas each day.

OH, MY, DOG!  The Pope declared that monster to be a martyr!  I didn't know that.  Wow.  I am stunned.  I thought I was beyond surprise when it came to the monstrous actions of the religious, but you surprised me.   Or, rather, the Pope did.  The religious have no shame.

Well, this won't make you feel any better, but it might help put the actions of the idiotic leaders of the U.S. in perspective:

Like I said, every country has its shameful secrets and inhabitants.  The good thing is that every country also has people who are very different from those shameful ones.
