Per essere fatto con tre spiccioli non è affatto male. Se avesse dosato la comicità di alcune situazioni, messo il sangue dove doveva andare, visto che ce n'è davvero poco purtroppo, e caratterizzato meglio soprattutto i protagonisti, sarebbe stato un piacchiaduro a scorrimento col botto, tipo di film che amo alla follia.

Pat Mills, Joe Colquhoun (2018). Charley’s War Vol. 3: Remembrance - The Definitive Collection. Londres: Rebellion.

Se queremos ler a obra definitiva em banda desenhada sobre a I Guerra Mundial, Era a Guerra nas Trincheiras de Tardi é o livro incontornável. E, logo de seguida, diria Charley's War de Pat Mills e Joe Colquhoun. Tardi seguiu um caminho de rigor histórico com sentido crítico, retratando na perfeição o absurdo e horror da guerra. Um trabalho de rigor e crítica que lhe valeu a admiração dos leitores e, com uma certa ironia, honras militares do estado francês.

Pat Mills seguiu um caminho similar, mas mais discreto. A série Charley's War segue as aventuras de um soldado comum do exército britânico durante a I Guerra, acompanhando a dureza das trincheiras. Embora se mantenha dentro dos padrões dos comics britânicos, Mills aproveita a estrutura narrativa dos comics de guerra para passar uma forte mensagem crítica. Não há heroísmos, apenas a necessidade de sobrevivência face ao inimigo e à inépcia assassina dos comandantes, corrupção e estratificação social, e o horror do confronto diário com a morte violenta. Charley, retrato do comum bloke britânico, arregimentado para combater numa guerra que não é a sua, tudo suporta e sobrevive, apenas para receber em troca o ser um dos muitos desempregados de longa duração na depressão que se seguiu à guerra.

O trabalho de Mills é especialmente corrosivo se o enquadrarmos no contexto dos comics britânicos. São um meio comercial, e o género de guerra sempre seguiu narrativas elementares, meras histórias de aventura em combate, cheias do heroísmo dos bravos soldados britânicos e de fiabilidade histórica entre o duvidoso e o absurdo. Um estilo que ainda hoje sobrevive na interminável edição da revista Commando. Mills pegou neste estilo e conseguiu utilizá-lo para passar uma inesperada visão crítica da guerra e da sociedade britânica, mantendo o tom de aventura. Deve ter sido uma enorme surpresa para os leitores das revistas para rapazes britânicas quando, em 1979, as histórias das desventuras do soldado Charley Bourne começaram a quebrar o modelo narrativo dos comics de guerra.

Spacelab9 annonce la sortie de 'Breaking Bad: Extraits de la partition originale'
(10th Anniversaire) LP


En commémoration du dixième anniversaire de la série aux aux multiples succès aux Emmy® Awards, Breaking Bad, SpaceLab9 est heureux d'annoncer la sortie de Breaking The Breaking Bad: Highlights From The Original Score (10th Anniversary) LP.
Composé d'une liste de morceaux sélectionnés par le compositeur Dave Porter, l'album comprend également un tout nouveau remix du 'Breaking Bad Main Title Theme' et un morceau inédit intitulé 'Magnets'. L'album nous vient sur vinyle vert et blanc.

The Breaking Bad: Highlights de The Original Score (10th Anniversary) LP sera disponible à l'achat exclusivement sur le site de FYE et fera ses débuts à la convention de San Diego Comic-Con le 19 Juillet 2018, où Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Anna Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito, Betsy Brandt, Jonathan Banks et RJ Mitte se joindront au créateur de la série Vince Gilligan pour un débat.

Le LP peut être acheté sur place pendant le CCSD où à la boutique pop-up FYE située à Westfield Horton Plaza.

Breaking Bad est une série TV de Vince Gilligan avec Bryan Cranston (Walter White), Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman).

Walter White, 50 ans, est professeur de chimie dans un lycée du Nouveau-Mexique. Pour subvenir aux besoins de Skyler, sa femme enceinte, et de Walt Junior, son fils handicapé, il est obligé de travailler doublement. Son quotidien déjà morose devient carrément noir lorsqu'il apprend qu'il est atteint d'un incurable cancer des poumons. Les médecins ne lui donnent pas plus de deux ans à vivre. Pour réunir rapidement beaucoup d'argent afin de mettre sa famille à l'abri, Walter ne voit plus qu'une solution : mettre ses connaissances en chimie à profit pour fabriquer et vendre du crystal meth, une drogue de synthèse qui rapporte beaucoup. Il propose à Jesse, un de ses anciens élèves devenu un petit dealer de seconde zone, de faire équipe avec lui. Le duo improvisé met en place un labo itinérant dans un vieux camping-car. Cette association inattendue va les entraîner dans une série de péripéties tant comiques que pathétiques….

          Quackcast 382 - Suspension of disbelief      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

LISTEN!

 This week we talk about maintaining suspension of disbelief: the way you  have to convince people of the world you comic is set in and keep them  there. Everything you do is done for that, to convince them your  characters make sense and the world works. There's a very mistaken idea  that this ONLY applies to fantasy or SciFi. No, tt applies to ALL  fiction and even non-fiction in the case of stories and jokes from your  friends, biographies and autobiographies. You have to maintain a  suspension of disbelief in all these things in order to fully enjoy and  be a part of the story.
MANY things can knock you out of it or shake  it, not just “magic and dragons” or spaceships and aliens. The story  could be about a New York homicide investigation and you use incorrect  procedure, or your syntax and slang is wrong… Something as simple as  that can break you out of your immersion in the story. A notable  instance from me was when I was reading the stories of Brigadier Gerard  by noted Sherlock Holmes author Arthur Conan Doyle. They're about a  Hussar in Napoleon's Imperial army. Doyle hadn't done his research and  didn't know that a Brigadier in the French army was a very low rank  unlike in the British army, Gerard was also supposed to be a towering,  well built brute of a man, when French hussars were small, lightly built  young men on light horses. Doyle was so fundamentally ignorant of his  subject that suspension of disbelief was a struggle.
We chat about  problems with Avatar, Indiana Jones, and also breaking the fourth wall:  where you deliberately attack suspension of disbelief and in doing so  strengthen it. We offer up some solutions for maintaining suspension of  disbelief.

This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to RIDDICK  Q LOSS TALES. This is fast paced cool, speedy jazz for the active  person, wild and frenetic buzzing trumpets with an awesome rhythm  section. It’s all happening here! The club is jumping and the music’s  pumping!

          How Spider-Man's Non-Jewish Co-Creator Helped Me Rediscover My Faith      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Although New York’s Capital District has held plenty of pleasant bar and bat mitzvahs, mine was epic. A comic artist sketched for guests during cocktail hour and every attendee left with a copy of X-Men #30: the wedding of Cyclops and Phoenix. The yentas couldn’t stop talking about how great it was.

But after becoming a man, I distanced myself from comics and Judaism. It wasn’t until after college that I rediscovered my passion for sequential art. At the same time, I learned of the Jewish background of many creators. Superman was imagined by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, both members of the tribe. Stan Lee celebrated Passover. So did his uncle, the owner of Marvel comics, who gave him a job. Adam Sandler could have written a Hanukkah song about the industry. While I once felt shame over my heritage, attending middle and high school as one of the only Jews in Voorheesville, New York, I took pride after recognizing the large role we played in the genesis of my favorite art form.

          Fun with Fonts in XNA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/cwilliams/archive/2007/11/03/116573.aspx

If you want to display some text on screen in your XNA game, the easiest way is to use a SpriteFont. The cool thing about SpriteFonts is that you can use any TrueType font and XNA will render it into an *XNB file and allow you to use it in your game. You can distribute the game without worrying about whether people have the font installed on their machines.

(edit: XNB files can be opened using the XNB Viewer, downloadable here, although it doesn't seem to work on Vista.)

So, anyway, to do this... just follow these simple instructions. I assume you already know how to make an XNA Windows Game.

Right click on your project name and "add new item." Name your SpriteFont whatever you want, or just leave the default name of SpriteFont1.

Once you do that, it's only a few lines of code to get your message out to the world.

First you need to open the SpriteFont file (it's just xml) and tell it what font to use:

<Fontname>UltraViolent BB</Fontname>

In this example, I'm using a font from the BlamBot site, which my buddy George hooked me up with. These guys have some really great fonts (some free, some for sale) that are available for independant comics and non-profit projects. (That applies to the free ones, you can do whatever you want if you pay for them.)

HINT: If you add new fonts to your OS (in Vista, and probably in XP) make sure you close and restart XNA GSE so it will recognize your font, otherwise your project won't build. The same is true if you don't spell the font's name properly.

We'll go ahead and bump the size up too, to make it totally readable.

<Size>36</Size>

Next, open your game.cs file and add a SpriteFont, like so.

SpriteFont UVfont;
SpriteBatch spritebatch;

We're adding a SpriteBatch too, since we'll be using that in our Draw() routine. You also need to add the following lines in your LoadGraphicsContent method:

spritebatch = new SpriteBatch(this.graphics.GraphicsDevice);
UVfont = content.Load<
SpriteFont>("SpriteFont1");

Next we go down to the Draw() routine and add these three lines:

spritebatch.Begin();
spritebatch.DrawString(UVfont, "Hello World", Vector2.Zero, Color.White);
spritebatch.End();
 

Finally, hit F5 and you should be greeted by our Cornflower Blue screen, with the words Hello World in large white letters, as below:

Edit: MonoSpaced fonts are not supported with SpriteFonts (as of the 1.0 Refresh.) If you need a monospaced font, then you'll have to create your own XNB file or find another way.

Update: Shawn Hargreaves (XNA Team) says MonoSpaced fonts will be supported in XNA 2.0.

          Jailed Turkish academic Laçiner: I got used to lynching, at least accusations should make sense      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Renowned Turkish academic and political scientist Prof. Dr. Sedat Laçiner, who was arrested in the wake of a controversial military coup on July 15, 2016, has stated that “I respond to what is said about me, and I don’t run from either prosecution or debate. But the accusations must be a bit rational and fair. I got used to the lynching, but at least the accusations should make sense. Have a heart! I am also a human being.”
Turkish online news outlet T24 has published a letter sent by Professor Laçiner, who as of March 25 has been in prison for 610 days over alleged links to the Gülen movement, to veteran journalist Hasan Cemal, saying that he wants his previous life back.

“I have worked for decades to serve my country and my people, and I’ve tried hard. I studied at the best universities in the world, and I put forward world-respected studies… In return for all this labor and sacrifice, I was not supposed to be thrown into a deep well. I am sorry and I am worried about my future, even scared. But my fear for my country is greater. It may sound strange to you, but if I fear for myself, I tremble for my country and nation. Sins committed in the past set fire to today, and today’s sins will set fire to our future,” said Laçiner.

Laçiner studied at Ankara University and the University of Sheffield, where he was awarded an MA in international politics with distinction, and King’s College London, where he obtained his Ph.D. Since 2001, he had been teaching international relations and international security at Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University and the National Police Academy Security Studies Institute in Ankara. Professor Laçiner was appointed president of Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University in 2011, becoming the youngest rector in Turkey

Laçiner was editor of the Journal of Administrative Studies and Review of International Law and Politics as well as a regular contributor to TRT and other Turkish television and radio broadcasts. He is also chairman of the Journal of Turkish Weekly, a regular columnist for the Star newspaper and general coordinator of Ankara-based think tank the International Strategic Research Organization (ISRO).

He was appointed adviser to the Higher Education Board (YÖK) president, and in 2011 he was appointed president of Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University (ÇOMÜ) by then-Turkish President Abdullah Gül.

Laçiner is the author/co-author or editor of numerous books and articles, including “Iraq Global War and Turkey,” “The Iraq Crisis,” “Turks and Armenians,” “The World and Turkey,” “European Union with Turkey, Turkey’s Membership’s Impact on the EU,” “The Armenian Diaspora” and “Britain from a Different Perspective.”

Professor Laçiner was arrested in July 2016 after the attempted coup, and a prosecutor has demanded life imprisonment for him over his alleged ties to the Gülen movement.

The full text of the letter sent by Professor Laçiner to veteran journalist Hasan Cemal through his lawyer is as follows:

Honourable Hasan Cemal,

Venerable master,

I am writing these lines from Çanakkale Prison, where I have been detained for 20 months… 20 months, 577 days, 13,848 hours, waiting in a dungeon for this madness to end…

While I was out (a long time ago), reading your articles was a daily routine that I could not give up. Regardless of the subject matter, I cannot forget your effort to be fair, your liberal stance and your attitude in favor of freedom and righteousness. Unfortunately, there is no internet in prison, no computers… Forbidden… Therefore, one of the many rights and opportunities that I have been deprived of is the writings of modest experts like you…

***

Dear Cemal,

On July 20, 2016, I was taken into custody in my home, in my work room… When the police arrived, I was working on my computer and busy writing a column for the internet (website). They turned my house upside down and confiscated my computers and mobile phone. I was arrested three days later. I could not believe that I was said to be guilty of ‘violating the constitution,’ in other words, ‘staging a coup.’ When the police said, ‘We do not know, the public prosecutor will explain,’ I waited for the prosecutor’s interrogation.

But the prosecutor did not even ask a single question about the coup. When he didn’t ask, I told him where I was on July 15th, what I did. But the prosecutor did not seem to listen to me… Then I appeared before the judge. The hearing, which started at 20:00 in the evening, ended at08:30 the next morning. For a while, even the lawyers and the defendants were asleep in the hall. Interestingly, the judge did not even ask me and the other defendants a single question about July 15th, just like the prosecutor. As if the decisions had already been taken, and our fate was settled… Neither the prosecutor nor the judge was concerned with what I was describing. They did not even ask me where I was on July 15th…

On the day I was arrested more than half of the prosecutors and judges’ offices in the courthouse were empty and their names removed… If the judge who arrested me had not arrested me, perhaps he himself would have been arrested. The rooms, which are next to the office of the prosecutor who ordered my detention, were emptied the day before, and the prosecutors in those rooms had already been put in prison. I was arrested in such an environment.

Later, I found out that on the morning of July 16, 2016, an arrest list was brought from a ministry in Ankara to the courthouse, and my name was among those names.

Until more than two months from the day I was taken into custody, my lawyer was afraid that something would happen to him, and he couldn’t even come to visit me. The lawyer appointed by the bar due to legal obligation washed his hands of being my lawyer after a few days. I couldn’t find a lawyer for a long time. Some glitzy lawyers said, ‘We believe that Professor Sedat is innocent, but we cannot take this case; otherwise, we would be in danger, too.” The accusations were unreasonable, and the channels of legal aid were closed.

I wasn’t able to find out the reasons for the accusations, the grounds, the evidence, etc., until the indictment came out, I mean for almost eight months. Even then it was not possible to learn any of this when the indictment was written because there was not a single sentence in the indictment saying that I participated in or supported the coup. There wasn’t even a sentence in the indictment saying that there was involvement in the coup in Çanakkale province. The most tragicomic thing was the last page of the indictment, which said, ‘There was no element of force/violence in his actions, but there is a public benefit in his punishment.’

In Article 309 of the Turkish Penal Code [TCK], it is a criminal offense to ‘try to abolish the order prescribed by the Constitution using force and violence…’ In the TCK’s 309th article, force and violence are essential and indispensable elements of a crime. In other words, the indictment admits that there was no force or violence in my actions and admits that there was no offense and that I am not guilty. However, it says my punishment will be to the public’s benefit. So it was clearly said, ‘Sedat Laçiner is not guilty but must be punished.’ Could there be such logic? Could there be such a law?!

Another interesting point is that there was no coup attempt in Çanakkale province, where I reside. On the night of July 15-16, 2016 there was no military or civilian activity in the city where I lived, nothing related to the coup was attempted. I found out about the coup by chance on television that night. I was sitting on the balcony, and I could not believe that what I heard on the news was real. Despite the fact that my place was on a well-traveled road, there were no unusual events… As a matter of fact, the governor of Çanakkale made a statement to the Anadolu news agency on July 16 and said, ‘We are proud of our province because there was not a single coup plotter from Çanakkale. There were no putschists from our province.’ In fact, he added that there was no coup attempt in Çanakkale as well.

As soon as I learned about the coup (it must have been around 23:30-00:00), I started sending anti-coup messages through social media. I have stated that coups and violence cannot be a remedy for any problems and that the public should protect democracy and the law. While I was sharing these anti-coup messages, the conflicts still continued in Ankara and İstanbul… It is an interesting coincidence that my first message against the coup attempt and the president’s first message on CNN Türk were made at almost the same time.

So, from the moment I found out about the coup, I opposed it openly, I took a great risk. Probably if the coup attempt was successful, I would have been one of the people to be imprisoned. You will be surprised, but none of my anti-coup messages on social media were entered into the indictment. I wrote to the prosecutor many times saying I wanted these messages to be filed as evidence. I repeatedly expressed this in court. One-and-a-half years after my arrest, the court finally took the decision to investigate my messages about the coup on social media…

In this case, it was as if an invisible power was interfering with the collection of the evidence in my favor, or as if the judges and prosecutors feared something by knowing that the case had nothing to do with evidence or proof. I do not know…

The day I was taken into custody an interesting incident took place: One of the police officers searching my house from A to Z found a book titled ‘Who is this Fethullah Gülen’ in my library. This book by Faik Bulut is a critical-antithesis book that levels heavy criticism on Gülen and his movement from the beginning to the end and even includes insults. The police officer was delighted and took this book to his superior as if he had found great evidence of a crime. The superior examined the book for 5-10 minutes and then said to the police officer: ‘This is not for that. This book is considered evidence in his favor, do not take it,’ although the law requires that evidence both for and against be collected. At that moment I realized that in this case anything in my favor was being ignored, even if there was nothing against me…

They have been searching for months, are still searching, but they haven’t been able to find anything. I am still in detention ‘due to the fact that the evidence has not yet been sufficiently collected.’ These words are actually a confession of my innocence. They are still looking for evidence of my criminality, or I am already being punished, I have been imprisoned for years without being judged. This is called an extrajudicial execution.

***

I have been against violence my entire life, I have opposed every kind of coup… My writings, my speeches are quite clear… I am a man who has lived all his life in a glass bell jar. I have laid all my cards on the table. In this case, I am offended to be accused of being a coup plotter while I am one who hates violence, coups, bullying. The baseless mud thrown at me offends me even if it’s slander.

While I am a writer who has invited the power-holders to respect the constitution and the law, isn’t it ridiculous that I am being accused of violating the constitution?

Does it not go against the grain to accuse a scientist like me who defends civil authority by taking risks in the most sensitive of periods and cursing the coup?

On the other hand, during the history of the Republic, while many innocent people have been judged on accusations of violating the constitution, the real coup plotters were on the bench as judges, not defendants. You know, Celal Bayar, Adnan Menderes, Fatin Rüştü Zorlu, Hasan Polatkan and 11 other defendants were accused of ’violating the constitution’ on Yassıada and were sentenced to death. The prime minister and the two ministers who were tried on ridiculous accusations such as the baby case, the dog case, the tweezers case, were executed under the instructions of the putschists as in a theatre play. Now it’s frustrating for me to be where they stood. In the meantime, I must say that at the entrance of the hall where I am being tried, there is a sign saying ‘Theatre Hall’ (since there is no courtroom, the hearings are held in the Open Prison Theatre Hall). The Yassıada cases were a black mark on Turkish history. After 57 years, are Turkish law and politics still in the same place?

Dear Hasan Cemal,

Believe me, the cases in which I’m being tried are more nonsense than ‘the dog case’ and ‘the baby case’ against the late Menderes. Because in those cases there were actions of which Adnan Menderes was accused even if they were unfounded. Moreover, I am not a ruler like Bayar or Menderes, who ruled the country for 10 years. Isn’t it pushing the imagination too far to accuse an author, a scholar, a journalist like me who has no power but his pen, who has never used a weapon or been involved in a violent act, of being a coup plotter, terrorist and traitor?

I asked these questions to the court, too. ‘How many times,’ I cried out helplessly to the people in the courtroom. I asked them: ‘Am I the only one to see that? Are not these accusations, arrest without any evidence, the effort to produce a terrorist from an anti-terror expert, strange?’ It has been almost two years. I am tired now. It affects my mental health negatively that while basic principles of the law are violated, the so-called people of the law who should protect them make any violation of rights seem normal and routine. It’s like everybody is crazy and it seems like my consciousness is open. The worst thing in a nightmare like this is keeping your sanity.

Dear Hasan Cemal,

My master,

The only case they have against me is not violation of the Constitution. Lawsuits and investigations are pouring in every day. Although I was dismissed from my job on September 1, 2016, they are constantly opening investigations. I have recently received a yellow envelope from the presidency of Çanakkale University. They found a newspaper article I had written two years ago. They inquired if I had been trying to make our state seem incompetent in that article. And they are demanding my defense of it. And so my days pass; sometimes I have to defend my articles or my speeches.

One of the cases against me is about the Turkish Penal Code’s Article 301. On the order of Çanakkale University Rector Yücel Acer, who did not approve of my criticism of Turkey’s anti-terror policies, a criminal complaint was filed and the prosecutor’s office opened a case. In this case, I have to defend a column I wrote two years ago. My readers already know that I am a patriotic person. I have always maintained a stance that defends national interests, as much of a liberal as I am. If the government cannot even put up with my criticism about the fight against terrorism in Turkey, the new Turkey cannot even tolerate me. It is quite normal to be alarmed for democracy and justice, for freedom of expression and human rights.

What I have been through is not merely the question of lynching or destroying an academic named Sedat Laçiner with the help of the judiciary. Through me, not only justice and freedom of opinion, but also reason is being destroyed. A terrorist, a traitor, a coup plotter cannot be derived from the nationalist and patriotic posture of a person like me who always defends the interests of this country, a writer and a scientist like me who supports the government when they do the right thing and whose criticism is always constructive and technical.

I have already give up expecting them to be lawful, but at least they should be reasonable. Seeing that I have been lynched, they should be conscientious. There is logic even in a lie. When someone tells a great lie, people warn him ‘At least make it a plausible lie!’ I can respond to anything said against me. I will not dodge any discussion. But let the accusations be a little more logical, more conscientious. I have gotten used to being lynched, but there should be measure to that. Have a heart! I am also a human being.

***

So far in my hearings, more than 300, maybe 500, witnesses, defendants and complainants were heard. Not even one of these hundreds of people had a criminal complaint against me based on evidence that was witnessed. Not a single soul came up and said, ‘I saw him with a man from FETÖ or the Gülen movement.’ I don’t even know an elder brother or an imam from the movement. I haven’t attended a single meeting. Even when the Çanakkale governor organized the Turkish Language Olympiads, when more than 40,000 people filled the stadium, I wasn’t there.

I don’t have ByLock and I haven’t deposited money in Bank Asya. Not a single witness or prosecutor’s office could claim that ‘he did that,’ and they cannot since I have never attended a meeting of a religious organization. I have never been to a Quran school, either. I am not bragging by saying I have never been to a Quran course, but that is my life. My father and mother were social democrats, and my education was in secular and positivist institutions. From my primary to my doctoral education I have had secular teachers.

It is also very difficult for me to be a member of a religious group, even a political party or a nongovernmental organization, because of my critical, inquisitive, skeptical, truthful character. My acquaintances know I have a rebellious character. It is impossible for me to take part in organizations where a leader’s every word is accepted as a command. The things I have written and said are the products of my own mind. I have never been connected to anybody or any group by my mind and/or my stomach.

In almost two years of ongoing proceedings, the brothers, sisters, imams, accountants, sympathizers, artisans, students, businessmen and members of the Gülen movement were all heard. All this was very instructive for me. These hearings were like an obligatory course for me. Thanks to these courts, this was the first time that I have been able to learn about this organization in detail. I suppose when these cases are over I will be a distinguished expert on this structure (!). But now in charges that make no sense, I am accused of being a member of this organization, of being a terrorist and of being a coup plotter. I feel like I will lose my mind when I think about it.

As I said, they could not find any evidence about me, but they are still searching. Hundreds of people who were heard in the courtroom said they only knew me from the media, and there was no other testimony. I don’t have a ByLock record. The court then decided: ‘Investigate all the phone calls of the defendant between the years 2010 and 2016 to see if the defendant had any calls with ByLock users.’

Can you imagine? They will check thousands, maybe tens of thousands, of phone numbers of people who called me or who I called for six-and-a-half years and see if any of them downloaded ByLock, and that would be the evidence with which to charge me. I experienced a similar situation when I was dismissed from my job at the university. They dismissed me because I was on trial, and they added my dismissal as evidence in the case.

***

Dear Cemal,

I remained in this country because I believed this country to be a hope for humanity. I finished my master’s and doctorate in England. I could have continued my career there and not come back to Turkey. When I finished my doctorate at King’s College, my mentor insisted I stay in London, but I kindly refused and said: ‘I have to go back to Turkey, my homeland. I have achieved this thanks to Turkey, now I have to pay my debt to my country.’ I thought my country needed my contributions at that time. When I said this, my experienced and wise professor said: ‘Look, Sedat, I respect your decision. But do not forget that the place to which you will return is a Middle Eastern country like Iran, Syria, Egypt. They may not understand you; you may be disappointed.’

Unfortunately my counselor was right, I have paid a heavy price in prison for such a crucial life lesson. If I had listened to Professor Karsh that day and stayed in London, my knowledge, my studies would be respected and my research would be supported; at least I would not be in prison. Today I see more clearly why developed countries have developed and those who have not developed tend to stay behind. I understand much better that the key to progress is to respect scientists, writers, journalists and artists.

***

Dear Hasan Cemal,

There is more to write. Although every word is painful, there is a lot more to write. But I do not want to take your time and tire you out. I just want you to know that it is not a personal story that I am living, but the tragedy of a country… The things I endure are not a drama lived by me that finishes with me; if this silence persists, it will be a drama for millions and future generations… I am not the only one forgotten in the Çanakkale dungeons; freedom of the press, freedom of expression, rule of law, academic freedom are also here… I’m not the only one lying behind bars hopeless about tomorrow; Turkey’s future also lies here…

It is said ‘Instead of an innocent being jailed, let thousands of criminals walk in the streets’ because if an innocent is jailed, that means justice is imprisoned. As far as I can see there is not one but many innocent people in prison. The periods of oppression — May 27, 1960, March 12, 1971, September 12, 1980, February 28, 1997, etc. — proved that injustice causes not only its victims but our country as a whole to lose.

One reason for our being underdeveloped is the lack of justice. That’s why this letter should be considered a call for justice that has fallen behind bars and a call for freedom of speech, not as the personal and exceptional cry of a journalist and a scholar who has been prisoned for 20 months.

I miss my home, my children, my wife, my friends, my students and my books… I long for all of them. I want my previous life back. I have worked to serve my country and my people. I have studied at the world’s best universities. I have accomplished things respected worldwide. The reward for all these efforts and self sacrifice should not be being thrown into a deep hole.

I’m sorry and I’m worried about my future, I’m even scared. However, my fear for my country is greater. It may sound strange to you, but if I fear for myself, I tremble for my country and my nation.

The laments of the past are burning us now. Don’t let the laments of the present burn the future…

I do not ask for much — a little plausibility, a little justice… We are the people of this country, the children of our country, not the enemy… Let’s leave aside the law of the enemy. Let’s go with the law of fraternity now. Please…

Best regards.

Sedat Laçiner, Ph.D.

Her style of comedy is kind of out there but it’s still funny enough that you can’t help but laugh. As of now her most notable role has been Kelly on Ash vs. Evil Dead and to be honest she’s been pretty hilarious.

Karel Václav Klíč (sometimes written Karl Klietsch, 30 May 1841, Hostinné - 16 November 1926, Vienna) was a Czech painter, photographer, early comics artist [1], caricaturist, lithographer and illustrator. He was one of the inventors of photogravure (heliogravura in Czech).


Klíč has such artistic talent that he was admitted into the Art Academy in Prague at the age of 14. For ridiculing school officials he was soon expelled, but eventually finished the school in 1862. Klíč worked as a photographer, caricaturist and illustrator in Brno, Budapest and Vienna, all the time trying to improve the technology of picture reproduction. During a long night in 1877, while working with zinc relief etching, he discovered, by chance, a process leading to photogravure.[2] He further improved the process in 1890, when working in England.

Это цитата сообщения komrik Оригинальное сообщение

Более 60 лет совместного Творчества. Гениальный композитор Александра Пахмутова и талантливый поэт Николай Добронравов создали вместе множество песен. Я взялась подсчитать – только известных хитов более 150. А так… около 400, наверное.

Они почти одного возраста – Николай Николаевич родился в 1928 г. в Ленинграде, а Александра Николаевна – в 1929 году, в местечке Бекетовка под Сталинградом. О детстве и юности Пахмутовой я рассказала вкратце в статье  https://cont.ws/@proctotanya/9...

Бабушка Николая по отцу очень много времени уделяла воспитанию внука. Он часто бывал в театрах, и это, конечно, отразилось на его выборе профессии.

Когда началась война, вся семья переехала в Новгород, а позже переселилась в подмосковную Малаховку. Там он окончил десять классов с красным аттестатом. После окончания школы Николай стоял перед выбором, куда поступать. Он планировал своё поступление в педагогический или литературный институт, но подал документы в Школу - студию МХАТ. Успешно отучился и поступил в ТЮЗ столицы. Выдающимся артистом он не стал, его захватила драматургия. Вместе с Сергеем Гребенниковым он писал пьесы для детских спектаклей, для сцены и для радиопостановок. Эти пьесы, кстати, ставятся и сейчас. И Николай писал стихи.


Его поэтические сборники стали издаваться крупными тиражами в ведущих типографиях страны. Столичные издательства опубликовали несколько его поэтических сборников, таких как «Созвездие Гагарина», «Таежные костры», «Вечная тревога» и еще несколько книг. А жена, Александра Николаевна, писала музыку к его стихам.В середине 60-х, Николай Николаевич решил уйти из театра. В 1970 Добронравова приняли в Союз писателей СССР. Активно работая в области культуры и литературы, артист стал известным и узнаваемым автором.

И хотя Александра Пахмутова писала музыку на стихи других поэтов (Рождественский, Вознесенский, Матусовский, Казакова, Ошанин) а Добронравов сотрудничал с иными композиторами (среди них Таривердиев и Мартынов, Островский и Бабаджанян), великолепное, настоящее соавторство этих гениальных супругов рождало шедевры.

В этой статье я хочу рассказать историю становления трех всем известных песен. Мало написать песню, это ее рождение. Дальше следует становление песни. И вот - три интересные истории. 

«Нежность»

Слова С. Гребенникова и Н. Добронравова, исполняет М. Кристалинская. Потом эту песню пели Ю.А. Гуляев, Т. Синявская, А. Н. Баянова, Т. Ю. Петрова, Т. И. Буланова, Томас Андерс (на английском языке исполнена 23 апреля 2009 года на концерте в Кремле), Д.А. Хворостовский, А.С. Бон… Но именно Майя Кристалинская вывела эту песню «в свет».



Сначала Пахмутова показала песню Эдите Пьехе, но та отказалась («сильно испугалась, что не потяну»). В итоге первой исполнительницей «Нежности» стала Майя Кристалинская. Говорят, первое прослушивание песни настолько тронуло певицу, что она не смогла сдержать слёз. Каково же было её удивление, когда впервые исполнив песню в Колонном дворце Дома Союзов в декабре 1965-го, она снискала у публики несколько жидких хлопков и ушла со сцены под стук своих каблуков. Тот ролик, который вы просмотрели, записан в 1975 году, на творческом вечере Александры Пахмутовой.

Добронравов вспоминал, как на том же самом концерте Кристалинская с успехом исполнила песню «Аист» на стихи Аркадия Островского.

Николай Добронравов вспоминал: «…я прекрасно помню, как в перерыве подбежал к нам замечательный композитор, очень любящий нас Аркадий Ильич Островский, и сказал: «Ну что ты пишешь, ну кому это нужно, этот твой Экзюпери. У меня вот «Аист» — ты видишь, что делалось в зале? Каждая женщина хочет, чтобы у неё был ребенок, она ждёт этого, а ты — о каком-то Экзюпери…».

Но и после этого Николай Николаевич менять свои стихи отказался, заявив: «Мне важен не сам лётчик, а человек, который глазами поэта смотрел оттуда на Землю, Вселенную, мне нужен был поэт, хотя он прозаик». Позже Добронравов напишет стихи к еще одному хиту — «Маленький принц» («Кто тебя выдумал, звёздная страна?») — правда, музыку напишет Микаэл Таривердиев.


Кристалинская от «Нежности» тоже не отказалась и упорно продолжала исполнять её на каждом концерте. Постепенно публика «оттаяла», песня стала набирать популярность и крутиться по радио. Настоящий прорыв случился в 1967 году — после выхода к-ф «Три тополя на Плющихе». При этом Лиознова признавалась, что её картина была напрямую вдохновлена «Нежностью» (возможно, именно строчка «И куда-то всё спешат такси…» определила профессию главного героя).

Т. Хренников, М. Кристалинская и А. Пахмутова

Т. Лиознова вспоминает: «Я услышала песню Пахмутовой «Нежность», когда она ещё не была, как вы говорите, хитом. Песня меня тогда захватила. Я стала придумывать разные истории, в контексте которых эта песня могла прозвучать. Делала какие-то наброски. Но это всё не попадало в тональность. Наконец, однажды я прочитала рассказ Александра Борщаговского «Три тополя на Шаболовке». Сразу поняла — история найдена! Хотя потом я ещё долго допридумывала, что представляет собой главная героиня, какая у неё жизнь, дом…».

Однако, когда Пахмутова ознакомилась со сценарием фильма, она выразила решительный протест: «Я не буду этого делать, эту песню знают лётчики, космонавты, там — небо, а тут приезжает какая-то тётка, на базаре мясо продает, ну что это такое?» Песня входила в песенный цикл «Обнимая небо», и с ней было связано вот такое дорогое воспоминание самой Пахмутовой: «Мы очень дружили с семьёй лётчика-испытателя Георгия Константиновича Мосолова. И мы пришли к нему на день рождения. Это был 1967 год. Мосолову позвонил Гагарин — поздравил с днём рождения и попросил меня к телефону. Я подошла к телефону, он говорит: «Алечка, я хочу сказать, что Володя Комаров перед полётом просил передать вам с Колей благодарность за песню «Нежность». Это был последний полёт Комарова».

Но Лиознова не сдалась и стала объяснять, что у неё весь фильм строится на этой композиции. Решающую роль сыграл просмотр знаменитой сцены, где героиня Дорониной, подперев щёку, бесхитростно исполняет «Нежность» в жалостливой деревенской манере.



Александру Николаевну тронул этот эпизод, и «Нежность», и «Три тополя на Плющихе» состоялись и живут до сих пор – на сцене, на экране и в нашем сердце.

«Я не могу иначе». 

А вот еще чудесная песня соавторов Пахмутовой и Добронравова – «Я не могу иначе». У этой песни своя история.

Как только Пахмутова сочинила «Я не могу иначе», то сразу решила, что этот жалостливый «фабричный вальсок» идеально подойдёт Валентине Толкуновой — её сути «актёрской и женской». Певица как раз воплощала на сцене образ простой русской женщины с деревенскими корнями. Однако у Толкуновой в то время накопилось так много материала, что песня пролежала без дела целый год. За это время «Я не могу иначе» успели взять в свой репертуар ПЕСНЯРЫ и стали исполнять её в мужском варианте.

Вспоминает Анатолий Кашепаров, солист ПЕСНЯРОВ: «Возможно, многие не помнят, но именно я был первым исполнителем прекрасной пахмутовской песни «Я не могу иначе». Валентина Толкунова, в версии которой эта вещь знакома большинству слушателей, впоследствии просила у меня прощения (смеется)».

 

Но нам эта песня известна в исполнении Валентины Толкуновой. Пахмутовой удалось уговорить певицу записать её буквально накануне эфира «Голубого огонька», приуроченного к 8 марта 1982 года.



 

«Мелодия».

Великолепная, нежная песня «Мелодия» на слова Н. Добронравова «состоялась» так.

Ее рождение оказалось косвенным образом связано летними Олимпийскими играми, проходившими в 1972 году в Мюнхене. Александра Пахмутова написала к этому мероприятию вдохновляющую песню «Герои спорта» и, в срочном порядке, искала — с кем её записать.

Когда песня была предложена Муслиму Магомаеву, тот начал отнекиваться — мол, она мне не очень подходит, отдайте её лучше Эдуарду Хилю. На что Пахмутова сказала, что Хиля в Москве нет, поэтому — выручай. А в виде компенсации пообещала написать для Магомаева красивую песню о любви.

Музыка вышла потрясающей, но композитор сильно сомневалась, что из неё когда-нибудь получится песня. Дело в том, что размер «Мелодии» был слишком прихотливым для текста, постоянно менялся и требовал строчек разной длины.

Вспоминает Н. Добронравов: «Там третьи и четвёртые строчки с очень перебивающимся ритмом. И ударение почти на каждом слоге — «ДнИ-чтО-нА-мИ-прОй-дЕ-нЫ». Это было очень сложно написать».

Чтобы получить нужный результат, Николаю Добронравову пришлось потратить целый год (он говорил, что за это время успел бы написать два поэтических сборника). Вариантов текста было множество, и, по мнению поэта, в песню попал далеко не самый лучший — зато самый ритмически точный.

Ты моя мелодия,

Я твой преданный Орфей…

Дни, что нами пройдены,

Помнят свет нежности твоей.

Всё, как дым, растаяло,

Голос твой теряется вдали…

Что тебя заставило

Забыть мелодию любви?

«Мелодия» не только позволяла Магомаеву в полной мере раскрыть свой вокальный диапазон, но и идеально вписывалась в его лирическое настроение — в 1972 году у Муслима Магометовича начался роман с оперной певицей Тамарой Синявской. Песня так понравилась певцу, что он принял её мгновенно — без правок и пожеланий.

Вспоминает А. Пахмутова: «Когда я её ему показала, ему так понравилось, что он не стал ждать партитуру. Вообще-то я никогда не отдаю песню без партитуры, но тут он выпросил клавир. У него через три дня был концерт, и он за это время уже успел заказать аранжировку и спел её с большим успехом. Потом я уже сделала свою аранжировку. Муслим записал «Мелодию» по моей партитуре».

А так как Синявская в то время была за рубежом (стажировалась в миланском театре «Ла Скала»), то певец не утерпел и прокрутил ей запись новой песни прямо по телефону.



Считается, что именно эта песня помогла преодолеть кризис в отношениях Синявской и Магомаева. В 1974 году Магомаев женился на Синявской и прожил с ней всю жизнь.

Но я думаю, что «Мелодия» состоялась, как гимн любви самих авторов – Александры Николаевны и Николая Николаевича. «Ты – моя мелодия, Я – твой преданный Орфей». Разве это не них самих?

Около 400 совместно написанных песен… Самые разные темы, ритм, аудитория. Есть ли еще в истории человечества подобный творческий союз? Они же продолжают писать и дальше.

Дай Бог вам счастья и здоровья! Вы - лучшие, дорогие Александра Николаевна и Николай Николаевич!

FUN!

Read the full article on AICN

Hello all, Mad Dashiell here and thanks for joining us. I was able to ask Andrew Maxwell a few questions about his new comic project. Without dropping any spoiler bombs for the first issue of "The Bawdy Tales of Lazlo Cale", I will say this comic is filled with fresh fun characters and even some that you might have known and loved for ages but due to insane events within will now be seen in a different light. It reads with a fun pacing as if you are watching your new favorite AdultSwim cartoon.
 

 
 The Bawdy Tales of Lazlo Cale is a rollicking 48 page, sci-fi romp, created by Andrew Maxwell and Goran Gligović. The story takes place in a futuristic Paris, filled with interdimensional time portals, following an explosion of a literal time bomb. However, instead of erupting into chaos, the city became a unique ecosystem of different eras existing simultaneously together. Dinosaurs, samurai, and flying cars are just a few of the things you might see on the city streets. The protagonist of this tale is an ex-gigolo turned art dealer, who uses this new set of circumstances to profit and acquire art. He has recently been tasked with finding the city’s most notorious gangster’s stolen painting or suffer the consequences. Oh, and this mobster is his ex-boyfriend. If you're a fan of films like The Thomas Crowne Affair or Ocean's 11, and sci-fi in the vein of The 5th Element, or Casanova, then you'll love Lazlo.

Next 3 Unexpected Comic Thrillers: 'The Spy Who Dumped Me,' 'Goosebumps 2,' 'Holmes and Watson'

The Marvel sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp earned an estimated $76 million this past weekend, per Box Office Mojo, easily surpassing the total made by the original adventure on its opening dates in 2015. What also distinguishes the new film from its predecessor is a greater reliance on comedy to liven up the action-movie formula. The primary characters are already well-established, which allows for more self-referential humor, especially as the other players poke fun at Scott Lang, a.k.a....

          Ramin Karimloo to Headline Concerts in London with Seth Rudetsky      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

International theatre star Ramin Karimloo returns to London for Seth Rudetsky's Broadway @ Leicester Square Theatre concert series for 3 intimate performances, produced by Mark Cortale.

Karimloo is best known for his Olivier nominated performance in Love Never Dies and The Phantom of The Opera on the West End and the Broadway revival of Les Miserables (Valjean) for which he received a Tony nomination.

Seth Rudetsky recently starred in a charity gala of his Broadway musical Disaster! in 2016 at Charing Cross Theatre.

Broadway @ Leicester Square Theatre began in 2013 with Patti LuPone, then featured Audra McDonald in 2017 and most recently John Barrowman this April. What differentiates this concert series from any other perhaps, is the seamless mix of intimate behind-the-scenes stories from Broadway's biggest stars - prompted by Rudetsky's probing, funny, revealing questions - and their stellar singing of musical theatre repertoire.This is a spontaneous evening of hilarity and show-stopping songs that is not to be missed.

Called "a global actor for a global time" by The New York Times, Iranian-born, Canadian-raised Tony and Olivier Award-nominated actor and singer Ramin has taken the West End and Broadway by storm with stand-out performances in the most iconic roles in musical theatre, as well as nuanced characterisations in new and surprising pieces of theatre. He recently starred on Broadway in the smash-hit new musical Anastasia, originating the role of Gleb Vaganov, a new character written for the stage adaptation and tailored to his talents.On the West End, Ramin rose to fame in starring roles in both of the West End's longest running musicals: Les Misérables, where he's played Jean Valjean, Enjolras and Marius; and The Phantom of the Opera, where he played Raoul and became the youngest person ever to play The Phantom. Ramin was then hand-picked by Andrew Lloyd Webber to originate the lead role of The Phantom in Love Never Dies, the sequel to The Phantom of the Opera. For his performance, he was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical and awarded with the prestigious Theatregoer's Choice Award and the Broadway World Award for Best Actor in a Musical. Additional awards include: Favourite Leading Man in London's West End in the WhatsOnStage Awards, West End Theatregoers Choice Award for his performance as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables, and the Best Actor in a Musical WhatsOnStage Award in 2011 for his performance as The Phantom in Love Never Dies.

Seth Rudetsky is a self-confessed walking talking Broadway search engine who lives and breathes The Great White Way! A musician, stand-up comic, actor, writer, and radio host, his career includes performing on Broadway, writing three books, penning a weekly Playbill.com column, and playing piano in more than a dozen hit musicals, including Ragtime, Les Miserables, and The Phantom of the Opera. Best known to US audiences as the daily Broadway host of Sirius/XM radio, he has also been nominated for a Grammy Award - for his recording of the musical Hair - and was three times nominated for an Emmy Award - for his writing on The Rosie O'Donnell Show as well as winning the title "Funniest Gay Male in New York" for his stand-up comedy.

You know, I'm not exactly naive when it comes to the internet.  I've done perfectly innocent Google image searches at work and then hurriedly had to cover up or stove in my monitor as all manner of filth made its appearance, irrespective of the tame nature of the search terms.

So I was up quite late recording this podcast and because only pervs and loonies seem to be up late* using the internet I reckoned that this should be called the Pervcast.  Particularly as I recorded most of it with a glass of wine in one hand and my nuts in the other - hey, it's just comfortable alright, stop being so judgmental.

Anyhow, the minute I hit return on the search for a banner image for this Toadcast... well, I realised my mistake pretty much immediately.  I didn't even realise most of that shit was even physically possible, never mind sought after.  Yeauch.  You internet people - you're all wrong 'uns, that's what you are!

          No se han recibido impugnaciones de elección presidencial: INE      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

La consejera del Instituto Nacional Electoral (INE), Pamela San Martín, informó que, hasta este martes, no se ha presentado ninguna impugnación de la elección presidencial y solamente algunos partidos han presentado recursos sobre cómputos en algunas casillas.

"El día domingo que el secretario Ejecutivo presenta el informe sobre los cómputos distritales de la Elección Presidencial, ahí cualquier impugnación que se hiciera a los cómputos, en global, o sea impugnación a la elección como tal el plazo empieza a contar a partir del día domingo y no tenemos impugnaciones hasta este momento presentadas en torno a esto (Elección Presidencial), sí se han presentado diversas impugnaciones sobre cómputos en casillas", explicó la consejera.

En entrevista, Pamela San Martín, dijo que los plazos para impugnar la elección presidencial ya vencieron este lunes por la noche, aunque todavía se puede seguir impugnando algunos cómputos, no de la elección Presidencial, pero sí de los comicios a diputados y senadores.

"Todavía se puede seguir impugnando algunos de los cómputos, no de Presidencia, sino de diputados o senadores, esto es algo que se va a ir actualizando día con día hasta venzan los plazos completamente, que será a más tardar el próximo jueves", agregó.

Dijo que no se puede adelantar la posibilidad de entregar la constancia de mayoría al virtual presidente electo, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, pues el Tribunal Electoral del Poder Judicial de la Federación (TEPJF), tiene que esperar el proceso de fiscalización de la elección y eso será hasta el próximo 6 de agosto en el Consejo General del INE.

"El 6 de agosto es cuando tenemos programado que se resuelva en Consejo General la fiscalización y pasaría inmediatamente al Tribunal Electoral, las consecuencias de la fiscalización no las determina el Consejo General un rebase de topes, ingresos de procedencia indebida, esto se analiza en el Consejo y la consecuencia que pueda tener o no sobre la validez de una elección eso le corresponde determinarlo al Tribunal Electoral", determinó Pamela San Martín.

          Jay Mohr, Sarah Colonna to headline Spokane Comedy Club      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Two comedy heavy hitters are taking the Spokane Comedy Club stage this week.

First up is comedian/actor Jay Mohr on Sunday.

Over the course of his nearly 30-year career, Mohr has dipped his toes in just about every facet of the entertainment industry.

He became a household name in the early ‘90s thanks to his time on “Saturday Night Live” before appearing on shows like “The Jeff Foxworthy Show,” “Action,” “Ghost Whisperer” and “Gary Unmarried.” He also created, hosted and executive produced “Last Comic Standing” for three seasons.

On the big screen, Mohr has had featured roles in “Jerry Maguire,” “Picture Perfect” and “The Groomsmen.”

He’s no stranger to sports radio, hosts his own podcast called “Mohr Stories,” has released two books and has lent his voice to several video games.

Comedian/actor Sarah Colonna too has quite a varied résumé.

She has appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” “Chelsea Lately,” as a roundtable guest and writer, “Scare Tactics,” “The United States of Tara” and “Days of Our Lives.”

She has released two books, “Life As I Blow It” and “Has Anyone Seen My Pants?,” and she stars in the upcoming Netflix series “Insatiable.”

Colonna has also launched Clutch Women, a line of clutches that meet NFL stadium regulation sizes (She’s married to Seahawks punter Jon Ryan.).

Colonna was the first comedian to perform at the Spokane Comedy Club when it opened in 2016, and her performances Thursday through July 21 mark her long-awaited return.

          Dark Horse launches new direct-to-consumer division DARK HORSE DIRECT      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Media Release -- Dark Horse Comics is proud to announce its newest business venture, Dark Horse Direct. A newly established division, Dark Horse Direct is focused on bringing high-end, limited production collectibles directly to consumers from their online storefront, Direct.DarkHorse.com.

The vision behind DH Direct is to offer fans the finest statues, toys, and figures from their favorite graphic novels, television series, and video game franchises. "Dark Horse Direct is the latest example in Dark Horse's long history of innovative business practices," explained President and Founder Mike Richardson. "Dark Horse constantly looks for new ways to inspire passion in our fans in every format possible, which is why a direct-to-consumer program is the most logical move as we continue to grow our business and cultivate new fans."

The first Dark Horse Direct offering available is the Game of Thrones®: Tormund Giantsbane Figure! Available for pre-order now, Tormund retails for $40.00 and is due to ship to website customers in early August 2018. As a bonus, 300 of the figures will also be available for purchase in the Dark Horse retail booth #2615 at San Diego Comic-Con!

The inaugural DH Direct lineup continues with the Umbrella Academy: Spaceboy Maquette. Masterfully sculpted and painted at 14" tall by 19" wide, this Umbrella Academy: Spaceboy Maquette evokes the character exactly as writer Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance, True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys) and artist Gabriel Bá (Two Brothers, Daytripper) conceived him to be. The Umbrella Academy: Spaceboy Maquette retails for $299.99 and is now available for pre-order.

Dark Horse Direct presents a throne fit for the true leader of Westeros with the Game of Thrones: Iron Throne 18" Replica. With HBO® Licensing and Retail and the talented artisans at Gentle Giant, DH Direct has replicated the seat of the kings of Westeros. This replica retails for $499.99 and will ship later this year, opening for pre-order in the coming weeks.

Leading the new division is former Dark Horse Director of Marketing, Melissa Lomax. "I am incredibly honored to oversee Dark Horse Direct," said Lomax, Dark Horse Direct's new Director of eCommerce. "This is an exciting new opportunity for us to create fresh and unique collectibles that will delight our current fans, as well as new pop-culture enthusiasts, with premium concepts and formats.

Mejor que no le pongan aun nombre al universo que trae mala suerte xd. Por lo demas una de mis mas esperadas de Dc junto a The Batman precisamente por todo lo que han dicho sobre su enfoque.Me gusta que dentro del universo mas superheroico quieran hacer otro mas independiente , pequeño y personal donde se experimente como ya habian hecho otros estudios. Esto para mi es muy importante ahora que la Fox no seguira esa linea( y era lo que mas me gustaba de lo que estaba por venir el que se hiciera algo asi saliera luego mejor o peor) que cogan el testigo de algo que por otra parte es muy de comic el tener varias vias para todo tipo de publico.

TV를 통해 많은 어린이들이 방송국에서 송출하는 많은 애니메이션을 시청하였는데 그 때 유행했던 애니메이션이 바로 『마징가Z』 『독수리5형제』였다. 이 애니메이션들은 지금까지도 매니아 층이 형성될 정도로 70년대 당시 대단한 인기를 끌었다. 하지만 당시의 어린이들 아니 90년대에 애니메이션을 TV로 시청하였던 필자조차도 이들 애니메이션이 ‘당연히 우리나라에서 만든 것이겠거니’ 하는 식으로 별다른 의식 없이 단순히 재미를 목적으로 시청하였다. 후에 우리가 무의식적으로 받아들이고 있었던 일본애니메이션 속에 제국주의에 대한 열망이나 우리나라에 대한 반한감정 고속성장에 대한 정당화 등의 내용이 들어있다는 것을 각종 매체를 통하여 접하게 되었을 때는 충격으로 다가왔다. 필자는 이 논문을 통하여 우리가 지금까지 무의식 적으로 수용해 왔던 일본애니메이션에 대하여 제국주의에 대한 열망과 고속성장의 정당화의 관점에서 문제의식을 가지고 접근해 보는 그러한 시간을 갖고자 한다. 1. 김준양 ≪이미지의 제국≫ 한나래 2006 2. 조성기 ≪아니메에서 일본을 만나다≫ 어문학사 2009 3.

KELLY CALDWELL

Overnight, someone left three fat softballs in the dog run in Tompkins Square Park, and this morning, the dogs are delirious with joy. A few skirmishes break out, but for the most part, the dogs just play. They tug-of-war, and take turns “losing.” They catch a softball and then coyly entice one another to chase. They race back and forth in pairs or clumps of three, shoulders bumping, fetching and catching, til all of their long, pink tongues are drooping out the sides of their mouths.
     In New York City, people avoid eye contact and don’t talk much to one another in public spaces, but in the Tompkins Square Park dog run, on early weekday mornings, it’s different. We talk. We know each other’s names, not just the dogs’. Usually, we move around, following our dogs, sipping hot drinks and chatting with whoever we’re nearest to.
     Today, though, we’re knitted together at one end of the run. The only thing on anyone’s mind is the news: More than 2,000 migrant children separated from their parents at the U.S. borders. It’s a firestorm that’s been raging for four days. We ruminate over the details: The audio released on Monday by ProPublica—seven minutes of children wailing, calling for Mami or Papa, and one clear, small voice repeating her aunt’s phone number again, and again. The ever-shifting and inadequate attempts by Administration officials to justify the policy. The lawsuit revealing that some children were subdued with powerful psychiatric drugs.
     We pause for a moment. A dissonance hangs over us, between the comic antics of our dogs and the heaviness in the air.
     It’s the stupid, pink dog dish all over again, I’m thinking.
     Three days ago, in my Advanced Memoir class, we talked about the subjective lens of the narrator, and a passage from Story Genius by Lisa Cron: “After all, we know from personal experience that when something genuinely horrid is going on, it’s always with us, no matter how much we pretend it isn’t. It not only filters everything we see, it tells us what to look for.”
     No matter what is happening in the scene, I told my students, you have to get the deeper emotion onto the page. The examples I gave were comparatively low-stakes: how after your first break-up, just buying your morning bagel was searing and poignant because it was your first break-up bagel.
     The example I did not give, but that I was thinking about, was of another morning in Tompkins Square Park, nine months earlier. My dog Pops and I had left the run, and stopped near the rose bushes so I could give him a drink before heading home. While I pulled out a water bottle and a hot pink collapsible dog dish from my bag, I was listening to NPR report that, in the wake of Hurricane Maria, more than half the people in Puerto Rico didn’t have clean water. In desperation, Puerto Ricans had reopened wells that were closed because of superfund-level contamination; they were drinking water mixed with untreated sewage. Water-borne diseases were breaking out, and health officials were worried about cholera.
     Puerto Rican men, women, and children are at risk of cholera, I thought, and I’m pouring filtered water into a pink, plastic dish for my dog.
     I’m not apologizing for watering a thirsty animal. That’s my responsibility. It is also someone’s responsibility to bring clean water to Puerto Rico.
     That was October, and still, every time I pull out that stupid pink bowl, I remember it. I’m thinking about it again, this morning, as Pops and I leave the run and I take out the dish. Thankfully, I’m interrupted, because we bump into Kate, a work colleague and a poet. She and I are both a bit sheepish at first, because she’s in workout clothes and I’m in grubby dog run clothes, but we get over it pretty quickly, partly because Pops is mugging and wriggling for her attention, but also partly because we’re genuinely delighted to see each other. “I can’t believe we’ve lived this close to each other all this time!” she says.
     That’s another thing I love about this park. In the heart of Manhattan’s East Village, it’s a magnet that draws in everyone. As Kate and I chat, there’s a teenage girl, possibly a runaway, panhandling for change, while nearby, parents in expensive suits and shoes lead backpack-laden kids to the bus stop. An older Hispanic man wheels a giant speaker past us—he’s a fixture here. He’ll set up near the basketball courts and blast salsa music for hours. The benches are all dotted with people in coveralls or khakis or sapphire blue blazers, eating egg sandwiches, drinking coffee, and scrolling on their phones, a few moments of quiet before heading to work.
     At my work, it’s a day of meeting, talking, and teaching. I interview a teaching candidate who wrote and illustrated a charming and funny picture book about a mouse and a chipmunk fighting over an acorn. Lesson? Learn to share. One of our interns wants to write an op-ed about the treatment of women in the music industry, and we work together to develop her ideas. I trade emails with my friend and fellow teacher Mary, who I haven’t seen since April, when she got hit by a car. She gives me an update on her shattered leg, and I tell her how much everyone at the office misses her.
     I’m running late to dinner, but I take a big, blue CitiBike down the Hudson River Parkway anyway. I don’t want to risk being even later because of a subway delay, but also, I want to take in the sunset. I’m not the only one with that idea—the paths are crowded with New Yorkers jogging and strolling and biking, and I have to pay extra close attention, because everyone’s eyes are trained on the river. Tonight, the sunset really is that beautiful.
     Dinner is a celebration. After two years of working in DC, our friend Indrani  found a great job back home in New York City, and she and her wife Dina are finally living under the same roof again. They got married last August and after their honeymoon, they rode separate trains to separate homes. Commuter relationships put a strain on both partners, and though Dina and Indrani handled it well, my husband and I could see it wearing on them. You can acknowledge your privilege all day long—we’re lucky we can afford two apartments, they’d say; we’re lucky to have such great support, they’d say—but when you’re exhausted because you got up at 4a.m. to take a three-hour train ride to work, you’re exhausted. When you yearn for someone, you yearn for them.
     Kent and I are thrilled that this separation is over, and selfishly, we’re thrilled that we’ll get to see our friends more often now. Indrani’s office is not far from mine, and we talk about meeting for lunch or after work in Bryant Park, a swath of green behind the New York Public Library, the branch with the stone lions.
     When our drinks come, we raise our glasses and all four of us toast at once. “Welcome home, Indrani!” I say. “Here’s to good friends and more good times together,” Dina says. “Well done, Indrani,” Kent says.
     Indrani chimes in last. “Here’s to being together,” she says, her voice thick with emotion.
     It brings everything to a screeching halt, and for one long moment, we gaze at one another, anguished. We will carry on with our celebrating, but all evening, thrumming beneath everything, is one, insistent thought: It’s not a privilege, being with the people you love. Or, it shouldn’t be. 
     At home, Kent and I find that Pops has soiled the living room floor. After more than two years of good behavior, he’s insulted the rug three times in just the last week. It’s been a busy week, and Pops has been home alone a little more than usual. “He might be a bit too accustomed to having you around,” I say to Kent as we clean up.
     But secretly, I sympathize. When your people are missing, you’ve got to do something.

LAWRENCE LENHART 

DO

I peek over the wife-shaped hump in the bed, see the baby monitor lit green. Our eleven-month-old son is standing in his crib, his fingers curled around the rungs. We had decided the night before that I would be the one to wake with him this morning.

THINK

This is a good system, deciding on these sorts of things the night before as it prevents the kind of pleading, arguing, groveling that happened during the first months (e.g., “I did it the last two days. Will you get him today?” “I didn’t get to bed until late. I need more sleep.” “I fed him twice last night. Will you please step the fuck up?”).

DO

I alternate between sleepy eyes as I change his diaper, throw it in the pail, remind myself I need to change the bag SOON.

DO

In the kitchen, I make a bowl of cereal for myself (Trader Joe’s Vanilla Almond) and prepare a goblet of Cheerios (no milk) for Milo. That’s my son.

DO

I set him on the floor in the living room and surround him with his favorite toys. He smiles at me like he’s just hit the jackpot. Like he might be spoiled. I turn on The Vietnam War. I’m only 6.5 hours into the 18-hour Ken Burns documentary.

THINK

I am watching it because 1) it’s summer and I have the time; 2) it fits into my ritualist disenchantment process with America; and 3) my wife just discovered (through Ancestry.com) that she has a half-Vietnamese uncle. Apparently, her grandfather had an affair during the war. After some encouragement from his Amerasian friends, her half-uncle signed up for an Ancestry account and discovered his half-sister (my mother-in-law).

THINK

There’s this one thread that’s not working concerning Denton Crocker Jr. (aka Mogie). I see what Burns is trying to do with his story, and maybe that’s the problem. It’s a Stalinesque maneuver: a single death is a tragedy/a million deaths is a statistic. Oh, wait: spoiler alert.

DO

I look up the wonderfully mimetic word ‘loblolling’ after a Vietnam veteran uses it to describe bombs descending toward the earth, toward his platoon.

DO

Milo has recently been fascinated with a martyoshka-style book. There are ten cubes total, and the walls of each cube are illustrated (with a snake, a saguaro, a cactus wren).

THINK

I worry that if he gnaws the smallest one too much, he will deface it beyond recognition and I won’t remember what it says when he’s verbal and asks, “What did it use to say?”

DO

I take a picture of each side of the cube just in case. Milo crawls away, and I pull him back by his leg. He crawls away again, and I pull. He cracks up.

DO

Milo and I take the tortoise to the backyard. I fill his bath with water from the hose. I admire the bath that I’ve created. It’s an inverted RV skylight filled with landscaping rocks, positioned in a dry stream in the backyard.

THINK

I worry there is too much pine pitch in the bath. I think I read tortoises can die if they ingest sap.

DO

The tortoise excuses himself from the bath and begins wandering through the yard. I hoist Milo to the bells we’ve hung from branches in the tree. We walk from bell to bell. I call it Bell Walk (a pun after Sedona’s Bell Rock). I ask him if he remembers when we bought these bells at Byodo-In Temple in Oahu. These at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. These in—I don’t remember where we got these.

DO

My wife wakes up. I give her a kiss. She wrinkles her nose in resistance because she hasn’t brushed her teeth yet. While she feeds Milo, I go for a run. I run across the cul-de-sac, down the mulch trail to the paved trail, along the paved trail past the park and into the designated “open space,” which is a ponderosa meadow. I cross the road to the trail’s extension (1.0 mile), all the way to the airport (1.74 miles). I turn around, facing the mountain now, and do my best to negative split. My IT band begins hurting, a years-old injury that I can’t seem to overcome. I check my time at the 5K (a sluggish 26:31).

THINK

While running, I start daydreaming about when I used to run in high school. I think about our rivals, Latrobe High—alma mater of Arnold Palmer and Fred Rogers. I wonder if their coach was really as shrewd as we made him out to be. It’s the coach’s responsibility to walk the visiting team all around the 3.1-mile course before the meet. I am remembering the time he gave us the wrong directions. I turned right and had to backtrack, which cost us the match. We assumed he did it on purpose, but maybe he didn’t. I think I am finally coming to peace with this defeat now, twelve years later. It is as cathartic as it is pathetic.

DO

I finish the run. On a boulder at the end of my driveway, I sit and analyze the splits on my running app.

DO

We leave the house as a family. Go to coffee, lunch, the playground, Walgreen’s. We need to kill two hours while the cleaners do their thing.

META

(At this point, I feel the need to defend this very bourgeois sentence. But I don’t feel like it this time.)

SUMMARY

Coffee highlight: none.

Lunch highlight: the men behind us—workers on their lunch break—speak English until six police enter the building, at which point they begin speaking in mostly Spanish. I tell Andie I need to wash my hands before we leave. I look at myself in the mirror in the bathroom and can’t work myself up to smile. I cry a little bit. Because there’s no line as I cross the counter on the way back, I decide to buy a $1 sugar cone. I hand it to Andie who shares it with Milo. I congratulate myself on being a good father, good husband. 

THINK

There was a time in my life when I thought sharing an ice cream cone with other mouths was the ultimate repulsion.

SUMMARY

Playground highlights: A man locks his car with a padlock and tries to make Milo laugh by putting a cup in his mouth like a beak. Milo doesn’t laugh. We forgot the sunscreen, so Milo has to stay mostly in the shade. There are drums and xylophones and chimes on the playground. Andie picks up the mallets and begins playing. She used to be in the drum pit in high school. Milo smiles as she plays. I smile too. We’ve been together for six years, but she still finds new ways to entertain me.

SUMMARY

Walgreen’s highlight: They changed her birth control on her again. We curse at the misogyny of it. My prescription isn’t ready. I worry that I’ll be wheezing in Belize. I say it aloud: “I’ll be wheezing in Belize.” Andie replies: “I won’t let that happen to you.” She is so emphatic and protective, it makes us both laugh. Her tone was clearly accidental. She immediately calls our GP and reups my prescription.

THINK

It would have taken me at least 3 days to make that call on my own.

DO

Because we haven’t quite killed two hours, we decide to look for houses for Andie’s parents who are thinking about moving to Flagstaff. We discover a new neighborhood in Flagstaff and drive laps around it, three times. We find “the perfect house” for them, but then discover there are phone lines criss-crossing over the backyard. Andie’s dad will veto. It’s no longer the perfect house.

DO

Milo is sleeping in the carseat. We have a mirror attached to the back-center headrest that reflects his activities back to the rearview mirror. I wave to him, and he waves back, choppily. When he falls asleep, I peek at him. My new car tells me: “Driver Attention is Low.” Fuck that. I’m paying attention.

DO

“Do you not want your Father’s Day card?” Andie asks. I tell her I do. “Then why did you put it with the old mail?” I remind her I was just consolidating stacks of paper the day before when my friend Mia came over. I go to the bathroom.

META

(Come to think of it, I must have gone to the bathroom earlier too. I just didn’t record it. Not paying attention after all.)

THINK

Here, I am reminded of Georges Perec’s Species of Spaces. I think about this one exercise in the book, very similar to this “What Happened on June 21” series, in which a family wakes up and goes through their morning routines. The woman is running around, trying to help her husband get on his way to work with pressed clothes and a good breakfast. She does the same for the son. It’s very suburban. Just like us, I suppose. And then, the surveillance-style narrator reports that in her first moment alone, the woman goes to the WC and “performs her toilet.” No matter how objective the narration is, I think it’s supposed to be comical. You have to read it.

DO

Andie calls her parents. She yells at her mom because her dad is so picky about the housing. I FaceTime my mom, and she and Milo spend a few minutes waving at each other.

DO

Andie watches television (The Bachelor) while she plays with Milo. Halfway in, she says, “I don’t think I’m going to watch this show anymore.” She’s been saying that for the past four seasons, maybe more. I work on my book proposal. It’s the boring part of the book proposal where I’m supposed to compare my proposed book to other titles on the market. I spend a lot of time trying to find a less specific word for “doudouism,” or at least one with a less French connotation. It leads me to an essay by Frantz Fanon. I download a couple essays by Epeli Hau’ofa, read them. Wish I had the whole book. ILL it. I encounter Jane McAdam’s name on several texts.

THINK

I would like to meet Jane McAdam someday, ideally in a casual setting like, “Oh, you’re Jane McAdam? That’s cool. I really like your ideas. I just ordered a caipirinha. Would you like something as well?”

THINK AGAIN

I wonder if this sounds like I’m trying to pick her up. I’m not. I decide she’ll decide for herself.

DO

Andie pauses the television, and asks, “Is that a tear?” The man currently on a one-on-one (date) with the bachelorette is talking about his divorce. He is being unusually vulnerable. I look at his glistening cheek and confirm that he is, in fact, crying. She continues watching the show.

THINK

Because my friend Joe spoiled the show for me (“So, how about I was with Carly the other night and she told me that X wins the Bachelor?” he texted), I don’t have to pretend to care about the evolving chemistry of the bachelorette and her misbehaved contestants. At the time, I chastised Joe, but now I think I should thank him.

DO

With the show over and the book proposal nearly finished, we take turns getting ready. We are going on a date tonight—our first in months. I text the babysitter’s mom with some details. They live across the street. I put Gillian Welch on shuffle (Spotify). We are going to the Gillian Welch concert tonight. I text my uncle one of the songs: “Here is a song by the musician we’re seeing tonight. It reminds me of something you would like. Very Appalachian,” I say. Andie puts on an olive romper-style jumpsuit. I love the way it looks on her. She curls her hair. Puts glitter on her chest. Picks up Milo. He spits up on her outfit, and we take turns scrubbing and blow-drying the stain. It doesn’t come out. She threatens to change her outfit. And I say, ‘No, you still look great.” She keeps the outfit on. I get ready while Andie walks the babysitter through each room of the house. It’s her first time watching Milo. I use the following products to get ready (in this order): rosemary shampoo, oatmeal exfoliating body scrub, Neutrogena facewash, Dollar Shave Club lather and razor, Proraso aftershave, Degree deodorant, BVLGARI AQVA cologne, Aquafresh toothpaste, TheraBreath Oral Rinse. “I like her voice,” my uncle texts. “It’s soothing.”

THINK

I promise myself that I’ll go to my uncle’s funeral when he dies.

DO

I cry in the mirror.

THINK

Because I don’t wear makeup, crying before a date doesn’t really change anything.

DO

Laugh a little.

THINK

I have been depressed for about 40 days now. Most days, I am functional. I do a good job of hiding it to the point where Andie usually forgets and Milo doesn’t notice. I congratulate myself on my covert depression.

DO

I change Milo’s diaper, get the tortoise out of the backyard. There’s a spider attached to his tail. It “balloons” through the air. We quietly leave the house, not even saying goodbye to our son for fear he’ll freak out.

DO

We go to the Annex for dinner. Our first seat doesn’t work out because one of the ladies at the table next to us is desperate for attention. She actually said, “Look at me in this picture” while pointing at her phone’s screen. Look at me. We eat at the bar instead. Andie tells me about a word she’s invented in a new poem: crud-rudder. I love it. We have fun talking about that word. We discuss the neologisms of Paul Celan. I tell her about loblolling. She likes that word too. We start talking about Vietnam, but then the mescal cocktail is too good. I tell her that when I’m in Tucson tomorrow, I’ll buy a whole case of mescal. We both knows it’s just a fantasy, that it’s unlikely I’ll even buy a single bottle. I feel myself blushing as she talks. “We used to talk about your poetry a lot,” I say to her. I’m reminded of our first dates together—back in Tucson. We’re both giddy. Our friends text. They’re already at the concert. We don’t rush. Not until Nicole texts “Two songs in.” Then we pay the bill and repark the car.

DO

The cashier at Will Call hands me the tickets so quickly, it makes me think I’m the last person to arrive. The Orpheum is packed, but silent—everyone listening to Welch’s “serene” vox.

THINK

I realize I haven’t been to a church since Ireland two summers ago. Before that, it had been a few years more. That’s two churches in five years.

DO

After the first set, I see Ted. I see Peter. I see Luke. I see another Luke. Each of them has seen Gillian Welch before. Peter and Luke are talking about the status of their chicken coops. Each has eight chickens. “But who’s counting,” Peter asks. “I am,” I say, somewhat seriously.

THINK

I want to ask: Are eight chickens the recommended number for a starter package? Instead, I just listen.

DO

I see Annette. She congratulates me on my new job, but reminds me that there are others, including herself, that are not so lucky. I say something like, “My new contract doesn’t start until August.”

THINK

I worry I sound cocky. Really, I’m just nervous and worried about professional confrontation.

DO

Andie is talking to her friends during the second set. I step away. Standing strategically between speaker and subwoofer, I enjoy a private view of Gillian. I see the new white boots she’s been complaining about (the left one hurts). I see her age, but refuse to put a number to it. In between songs, I go to the merch table and buy Andie a shirt (“the pink one”) and Milo a poster (signed). I ask the cashier where she’s from, if she plays music too. She’s from Nashville. And yes, she plays music too. She detects her own redundancy as we exchange money. Andie doesn’t like the gin and tonic I get her, so I get her Maker’s Mark instead. I get a cup of cubes in case she wants it on the rocks. And a cup with ginger beer in case she wants a mixer.

THINK

Andie’s concert etiquette is often brazen. The thrill of a good performance does it to her. I am reminded of her earlier that day, banging the xylophone with the mallets.

THINK

She still has secrets, I think. In a good way.

DO

Her talking during someone’s favorite song causes a large, angry man to approach her. He waves his hand in front of her face demonstratively and forbids her from speaking for the rest of the show. If it was anyone else asking her to stop talking, I would feel mortified. But because it’s this guy+telling her to stop talking, I feeling activated. Erik and I walk toward him until his back is literally against the wall.

THINK

I wonder if I am immature for craving a fight.

DO

“Do you know how many square feet are in this place?” I ask him. He shoves me. His girlfriend hails security. “Go find another spot,” I tell him. My lips inches from his.

THINK

It’s kind of erotic.

THINK AGAIN

Maybe that’s the point?

DO

They leave. All this adrenaline at a sedate Gillian Welch show gives me cognitive dissonance. Andie and I stand apart from our friends during the encore. She sings “Look at Miss Ohio.” Andie cries a little. For the past eleven months, we have been singing this melody at bedtime, replacing “Miss Ohio” with “Mr. Milo” as in “Oh me oh my oh, look at Mr. Milo.” I cry too.

THINK

It feels more appropriate to cry at a concert than in the mirror.

DO

Andie asks me to text the babysitter, but my phone is dead. We hurry home. Inside the door, we see the babysitter at the edge of the couch. The cat is on the arm of the couch. “Riding the rails,” my friend Tommy calls it. “How’s Milo?” Andie asks. “He’s so cute,” the babysitter says. She’s young. Cuteness matters. “How’d it go?” my wife wants to know. “It was good. He had a hard time falling asleep.”

THINK

I remember how difficult it was for me to answer How questions when I was younger, especially that one time at the barber. “How are you doing, Larry?” Nancy would ask me. I got tongue-tied. My parents never asked me questions like that.

DO

The babysitter has rearranged the pillows on the couch. They’re symmetrical, cool. I almost take a picture to remember the formation, but remember my phone is still dead. I ask Andie if maybe it was the cleaners who did it. “No,” she says. I go to the bathroom—

META

(oh yeah, I forgot: I went to the bathroom once at the concert too…) Have you ever seen the episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where a receptionist [Chacha] in Larry David’s office building counts the frequency with which he uses the restroom?

DO 

“Come check this out,” I call for Andie from the bathroom. She enters dubiously. I point at the end of the toilet paper. It’s folded into a triangle. “Did the babysitter do this?” I ask. “Now that was cleaners,” Andie says. And then almost immediately: “Aww, that means the babysitter didn’t use the bathroom the whole time we were gone.” We both laugh at that.

DO

We talk in bed, each of us taking turns yanking the concert wristbands off. Apropos nothing, my wife falls asleep while telling me about her first orgasm. “Why are you telling me this?” I ask. Then, she says it was during her first night of babysitting. “I was very young,” she said, almost nervously. It was on a couch after the kid went to bed.

THINK

Not that I was really trying to, but I can’t picture our babysitter masturbating. I congratulate myself on a failed imagination.

DO

“Andie?” I ask. “Andie?” again. She is sleeping. I scroll through my charging phone, realizing I’ve recorded too much of my day, that I’ll inevitably have to leave a lot out.

OUTTAKES 

Descendents’ “Suburban Home”—ironic or not?

Pause Bachelor to stare at infographic on suicide rates.

Dave Rawlings (who plays with Gillian Welch). I’d like to look like him when I’m older. Great autograph.

Fifteen minutes wasted practicing time signatures on my knee—5/4 is fun

I’ve never had to fire someone per se, but I did have to kick a bass player out of my punk band in high school. (Sorry, Geoff!)

My car’s corrective driving makes me a less retaliatory driver, but gives me cognitive dissonance.
Before they’re sentences, these notes feel like a bloated Jason Bredle poem.

What Happened on June 21, 2018: brain-eating amoeba, commitment, and left-over burgers

Mornings are sometimes tense between Adam, and me. Adam is my fiancé. [1] Adam thinks my morning routine takes too long. His morning routine is to wake up and immediately take a shit, then proceed from there. My morning routine follows: pee, scrape tongue, brush teeth, nasal irrigation, eye drops, splash face with water. Because we only have one bathroom, I’m often forced to complete my morning routine at the kitchen sink. I use a purple ceramic neti pot filled with water that is initially filtered through a Big Berkey water filtration system, and a quarter teaspoon of uniodized Morton’s Salt. [2] (Distilled water is recommended to avoid introducing bacteria and brain-eating amoeba to my nasal passages, where these bacteria and brain-eating amoeba can live and cause potentially fatal infections, but I don’t use distilled water. [3])
     To avoid having to use the kitchen sink, I try to get out of bed a few minutes before Adam and take care of my business before he gets out of bed and insists on the need to take care of his. If I miss this small window of opportunity, I do small chores around the house. This morning, Adam was up first and so I put away the laundry that had been hanging for days on three separate drying racks in our living room. After he was finished, he lit the lilac and hyacinths candle that sits on the back of the toilet. [4] But, even with the candle, I continued to pace around the house with my toothbrush poking out of my mouth instead of returning to the bathroom to brush my teeth in the steamy-from-the-shower, lilac-imbued stink of our small bathroom. [5]
     After the pacing, I completed my routine and we convened in the kitchen. In the kitchen, at approximately 7:30a.m., I suggested (not for the first time) that Adam see a therapist. As you can imagine, this was a fantastic way to start to the day for both of us.

Me: “I know you think that we’re having a hard time because we’re both in stressful situations and that it will all get better once work quiets down for you, but the reality is that if things go as we talk about wanting them to go in our Five Year Plan—both of us starting graduate school, buying a house, having babies, getting married, all that—this is only the tip of the iceberg.” [6]

Me: “Especially the whole baby thing. Just imagine all of this going on between us if we were only ever allowed to get two or three consecutive hours of sleep for months on end? Imagine it. Imagine!!!” [7]

Me: “Don’t you think things have been better between us since I started seeing a therapist again?”

Me: “I love you and I think it would be better for us if you also had a stronger support network, or at least started to cultivate that now. I know you talk about not having that since moving to St. Louis, but from what you’ve told me, you haven’t really had the kind of support I’m talking about, and that you deserve, ever. Would you agree with that?”

Me: “Does that resonate with you? Does what I’m saying resonate with you?” [8]

Me: “When you glance at your watch when I’m in the middle of sharing something with you, I feel like you’re not listening.”

Me: “What I need from you is for you to communicate with me if you’re getting anxious about time. Okay? See, there’s another example of something I learned in therapy, or sort of. Actually, that was just yoga school.”

Me: “What do you mean what am I talking about? The When you ______ , I feel ______ , what I need is ______ formula. Oh, really? Well, we can talk about it tonight.”

Me: “I still have the names of the therapists my therapist gave me when I asked her for recommendations for you a couple of months ago. But that was when I wanted to stop having to break things down for you about what I was going through with all the sexual stuff. This is different.”

Me: “Please stop looking at your watch.”

Me: “Have you heard back from your Aunt Nancy yet about driving to Dayton this weekend? I need to know so I can see about getting someone to cover my shift on Sunday. Do you want me to go along?”

Me: “What’s different is that I don’t feel crazy. I’m not crazy!”

Me: “No, I’m not going to send the names of the therapists unless you ask me, so don’t say, “If you want to send them.” This is about what you want. I’m just trying to be clear about what I want and what my needs are.”

Me: “You know when I’m angry that doesn’t mean I don’t love you.”

Then, he left for work.

I had the day off. I had a lot of things on my list of things to do. I only accomplished a few of them, and not even the highest priorities. When Adam returned home for lunch, I was angry at him for the way our morning began and the way this beginning impacted me and my state of mind—and, therefore, my productivity. All morning, I had the apartment to myself. It was quiet but for the buzzing of the neighbors’ air conditioning compressors, so easily heard through the single-pane windows at all times. After Adam left for work, I made myself pancakes and slathered them with butter and grape jelly and a scoop of Greek yogurt. I ate the pancakes while reading the contributor’s notes and correspondence sections for the March or May issue of The Sun Magazine. It was a very pleasant hour.
     Then I moved slowly down the list of things to do. I made several calls to United Healthcare and the orthopedic office at the Barnes-Jewish hospital in go in order to try to figure out how much it would cost me out-of-pocket after insurance to get an MRI (a lot), a call to the dentist to confirm my appointment for a six-month cleaning (feeling on top of things), wrote an email to a friend about the “What Happened on June 21, 2018” project (with a commitment to participate), and made a few changes to and comments on my sister’s cover letter and resume (much easier to get into than working on my own resume). I put the dishes away from last night’s dinner and did dishes from breakfast. I practiced yoga with the guidance of an audio recording and did my physical therapy exercises. And finally, I wrote out my work schedule for next week in my planner. [9] I stared at the weeks and months that make up the rest of the summer. They seemed spent already.
     Around noon, Adam came home for lunch. He works only a few blocks away and so often comes home for lunch. He works for the city and his office is on the fourth floor with a view, in an old octagonal building that was originally built to house a women’s magazine in—I’ll look up the year later, but I think it was the early 1900s. When he came home and poked his head in the “office” (my bedroom) to ask if I wanted any eggs, I tried to ignore him. I carried on emailing my friend as if I were doing important work.
     “No thank you,” I said, still staring intently at the screen. He made himself some eggs and the kitchen had that fishy smell from burning olive oil in the cast iron skillet. When he was done cooking, I went to the kitchen and started to make myself lunch: a salad with strawberries, green onions, a lemon garlic dressing, chopped pecans, and shredded parmesan. As I spun greens in the salad spinner, he walked in with his plate in hand to eat at the butcher block. He was trying to spend time with me.
     “How was your day so far?” I asked. I was trying to be cool, or at least to avoid “getting into things” again. But all he said was, “Fine.” Okay, I thought, so that’s what we’re doing. Pretty soon, we were back to the question of whether or not we’re “on the same page” in our house hunting search and who’s leading the way in terms of the “authentic communication” we both talk about wanting.

Adam: “I’m sorry about the house. I just wasn’t ready to make a decision so quickly.”

Adam: “Is there never a time that you feel like I also contribute to honest communication?”

Adam: “I’m trying really hard. I feel overwhelmed.”

Adam: “Yes, I am. Every day that I go to work I’m working toward our future family together!”

You can probably imagine my side of things. We stood in the kitchen hugging for a while. I tried to kiss him, but he went for my forehead instead.
     This morning, when he went to leave on his bicycle, he didn’t say, “I love you.” He just said, “See you later.” I followed him to the door and said, “I love you,” sort of angrily. I didn’t want to deal with feeling guilty for leaving on a bad note if he were to get hit by a car and become brain damaged or paralyzed on the way to work. [10] He relented and said, “I love you, too.” I think it’s okay to say it even when you aren’t necessarily feeling it. I do this all the time with my family. I think maybe we were trying to connect in the kitchen after lunch so that “I love you” would come more naturally when he left again.
     After our brief embrace, he told me about some work stuff and I complained about the cost of health care in the U.S. I reported back to him some of the horrors I’d heard on NPR that morning. And then he put his helmet on and left for work and I got back to my important emails to friends.

I got to my therapist’s office at 3:30 even though my normal slot is 2:30. We scheduled this one for 3:30 because I asked if I could get a later slot now that I’m working Thursday mornings. Today (Thursday) was the only day she could do 3:30, so we scheduled it. But then I didn’t get scheduled for work today. When I arrived at 3:30, she said she’d been expecting me at 2:30. However, instead of apologizing profusely and insisting I must have been the one who got mixed up, I said what I knew to be true, which was that we’d scheduled it for 3:30 weeks ago. As it turned out, she had 45 minutes until her next client, so I stepped over her dog, Herbie, and sat down in the recliner.
I was sort of hoping, when she said she had been expecting me at 2:30, that she wouldn’t have time and I wouldn’t have to stay. I’d been taking a nap before driving over and wasn’t really feeling like talking. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to talk about. I’ve actually been feeling sort of hopeful about things for a couple of days, maybe more like 36 hours. And it’s been really nice. I thought going to therapy might ruin the nice, hopeful feeling. [11]
     For the entire session, I talked about Adam. I told my therapist all the details about the house we had looked at last Friday and about the way he’d resisted my intuition and put up a wall. I told her how these things had really pissed me off. I said I was still attached to the idea of the house, which someone else put an offer on immediately upon viewing, which is what I would have liked to do, and the seller accepted it before we even had a chance to put one together. Adam wanted to sleep on it. I told him, “We can’t sleep on it with the market the way it is!” I said this as if I were a realtor or had any real understanding of “the market.” All I knew was that I had written to the realtor the week before that what I (we) really wanted was something grandma had lived in for 50 years and then the universe gave us exactly that. The woman selling the house had lived in it for 52 years and had just moved out of state to be closer to family. And here’s the real kicker, the sign from the divine that we were meant to put in an offer immediately and not “sleep on it”: the grandma’s last name was Brown.
     My last name is Brown.
     And Adam’s last name is Brown.
     And we’re not even married yet. It’s just coincidence that we have the same last name. [12]
So, obviously, this was a sign. I was sold on the place—big, dry basement (for him to play music) with a finished bathroom (bonus); big yard with enough sun for a big garden; on a cul-de-sac (with children playing in the street = instant friends for my niece and nephew when they visit); and the price was right. But Adam didn’t want to hear it. All he could see was the carpet and wallpaper and huge ornate dining room set. He was anxious about being late to dinner with friends and didn’t want to go over the details of the contract even though I had my notebook and pen out and was taking notes as we re-capped things with our realtor. He wanted to sleep on it and talk about it the next day, even though I had to work at 7:00 the next morning and had already explained to him that I wouldn’t be available to discuss anything until the evening, which would probably be too late. And so, we went to dinner. And we didn’t get the house.
     I told all of this to my therapist, who doesn’t usually hear too much about my current life but instead hears a lot about my childhood and the many questions I have about my childhood. She said my energy was different and that she thought it was because I was talking about issues that were grounded in the present and not in the past. I guess that’s a good thing. Present. Not past.
     People keep telling us that purchasing a home is one of the most stressful things for a couple. I keep telling Adam that he should trust me more because I’m naturally a more practical person. He keeps telling me that he just needs more time because it’s a big decision. All this desire for more time makes my therapist wonder if the two of us aren’t quite ready for commitment. People keep asking us if we have a date set and I give the same line about how I didn’t want to be looking at venues for a reception and tent rental companies when I was supposed to be finishing my thesis for graduate school in the spring. Or I say that Adam’s starting grad school in the fall and I’m planning to start (another program) in the spring, so the earliest we’re thinking is next summer or fall. Sometime. Maybe a year from now. Who knows! Or else I say that we don’t have any money, which isn’t not true. Or that we’re trying to buy a house, which maybe isn’t true after all.
     My therapist asked some questions that resonated: Are you sure you’re ready to buy a house together? Are you sure you’re both ready for that type of commitment? 
Me: “Well…we might just put it in Adam’s name because we haven’t combined finances. I can’t imagine doing that! Super scary. I’ll just sort of pay him rent. And if I help out with household projects and renovations, we’ll figure out a way to make that fair for me. I’ll get a stake in the property, or he’ll take some agreed upon amount off the top of my rent that month. So really, it’s not that big of a commitment. We just want to stop paying our slum-lord-y landlord rent. And I really want a yard so I can have a garden.”
     Of course, then the therapist asks if I’m sure I want to get married, with all this talk of paying him rent and making things fair. I have a ring on my finger, but the truth is, I’m not sure. And neither is he. Is anyone ever totally sure? [13]
     From the beginning, I told Adam I wouldn’t marry him until he was out of debt. And that I wouldn’t have kids with him until at least one of us had a stable income. [14] And that health insurance would be good. Just a few months ago, for my 31st birthday, he tucked a printout of his credit card statement into a birthday card. It had a $0.00 balance. Happy Birthday, honey. I paid off my credit card! I guess now my “yes” is now more official than it was when he pulled the ring out of his sweatpants pocket in front of City Hall on our walk home from the library last September. 
     Anyway, it’s been three and a half years since we met, and we’ve been living together for about three of those and engaged for, I guess, about nine months. I’m on his insurance plan through work, but I pay him for it. We share a car (really, it’s mine) and a phone plan, split according to use. We split bills and groceries. [15] Here’s what my therapist wanted to know: Did Adam’s hesitation to purchase the $75,000 starter home of our dreams have a deeper meaning? And her questions led me to my own line of questioning: Is my dharma to bake lemon bars for my fiancé’s office co-workers and create a detailed filing system for all of our shared accounts and household projects (user manuals, car insurance statements, notes on construction loan products we might look into)? Or should I be focusing on my writing and the evening writing classes I keep talking about putting together to teach and job applications so that I can stop waitressing? In other words, should I be focusing on my own life? On “me” instead of “we”?

After therapy, I went to Starbucks to write down what happened, something I do most weeks. [16] I ordered an iced chai latte and texted back and forth with my sister for a while, then located the graduate course I plan to take in the fall in the course catalog and noted the time. I started another “to-do” list for tonight, which had “What Happened on June 21, 2018?” at the top. [17] Then I went across the street and purchased the pair of running shoes I’d placed on hold last week because I’d wanted time to think about the decision before committing to the $93.75 investment. It started to rain.

By the time I went for a run it was after 8:00p.m. and significantly cooler than it had been here for days. It was a chilly 75 degrees, or thereabouts. While running, I thought about my grandpa’s daily diaries. My maternal grandfather kept a daily diary for years. The first one began as a joint effort. He and my grandma commemorated the day of their wedding, June 2, 1956, with an inaugural diary entry. I wonder now, was the daily diary a wedding gift from someone? Perhaps my great Uncle Claire, who was a writer. [18] After a while, my grandma’s handwriting fades away, but my grandfather continued to record each day’s events for years on his own. Of course, finding an entry for 1958 or 1968 would be ideal (for a nice, round number), but I don’t have those diaries on hand. As far as I know, they’re located in my Aunt Laura’s basement. But what I do have is the actual diary from 1956.
     The details of their day on June 21, 1956 are in my grandfather’s squat handwriting, easy to tell apart from my grandmother’s neat, right-leaning script. The entry reads,
We drove to New Providence last night to my folks, and got there near ten. We went into Eldora this morning, where I saw Dr. Nyquist. He said I was OK, and time would make me more peppy. Later, we went to Marshalltown and ordered another Hide Away bed from Mr. Cox, plus two chrome steel yellow cushioned kitchen chairs. We looked at washing machines on our way home. In the evening, we saw the Deep River Softball girls beaten by one run at Wellston.
     Added later are the prices of the items. $169 for the Hide Away bed. $6.66 for the chairs, though it’s unclear if that was per chair or altogether. These are the notes of two newlyweds preparing for their conjugal home.
     Twenty-nine years and 364 days later, on June 20, 1986, after a six-month battle with leukemia, my grandma died. My grandpa’s entry for that day reads,
Elizabeth died at 9 p.m. today. She had been breathing heavily and had been on oxygen all day. She passed peacefully. I was holding one hand and Julie and Sheilah were holding the other hand. Connie and Colleen had been up earlier—also Laura, Mark and Alisa. [19]
     One year later, on June 21, 1987, I was exactly two months old my grandfather recorded his visit to the Quaker meeting house he regularly attended, and the genealogy work he accomplished that day. It’s disappointing to find that the entry for this day, 31 years ago, isn’t one of the many in which he comments on how proud he was to show me off at the courthouse, where he was the County Supervisor, or makes note of my overall health. Those are the types of entries I enjoy. [20]
     I didn’t remember to call my mom and ask how she was doing yesterday, on the anniversary of her mother’s death. I don’t always remember to do this, but, in recent years, I’ve been making an effort. I don’t know what it would have felt like to lose my mother at age twenty-one, and I don’t know what it would have meant to have a baby at twenty-two. I’m thirty-one now and I’m not sure I’ll know what it’s like to have a baby at all.
     On my run, I took a route I hadn’t taken for a while. It was a beautiful summer evening and for once not too hot, and I saw a total of one person in their yard. The only other people out of doors were the orange-vested energy company workers for Spire.

For dinner, Adam and I had leftover hamburgers from a grill out earlier this week. Adam made basil-mayonaisse with basil from our porch box, but he over-blended it so that it was watery. It looked pretty disgusting, but I put it on my burger anyway. I had a brownie and ice-cream for dessert. The small white bowl I ate out of is still sitting next to me on the coffee table. It’s one of a set of three I scored a few months ago from Goodwill. Handcrafted Cabana porcelain. It’s the exact size of half a grapefruit. Adam has fallen asleep on the other couch with a book laid open on his chest. It looks like he’s about a quarter of the way through the latest Naomi Klein book; something about “NO” is all I can see in the title from here. I’ve stayed up two hours past my goal bedtime of ten p.m. to record all of this. Perhaps one day my descendants—if I have any, if I am not first infected by a brain-eating amoeba—will be as interested in what I had to say about today as I am in what my grandfather had to say about every day for the years he kept a daily record. Or perhaps not. As of five minutes ago, Central Standard Time, June 21, 2018, is over.

  1. I wish the word fiancé didn’t sound so pretentious. It’s not that I think all French words are pretentious, just that saying “fiancé,” which is what he is, instead of “boyfriend,” which is what he was before, seems to be making a big announcement. “Everyone! We’re going to get married!” But, this isn’t an announcement I want to make. We don’t have a date set and I’m not sure we ever will. I sort of pressured him into getting me a ring, I think, and now I don’t really like wearing it. I really don’t like the added hassle of having to clean it either, but it looks a lot nicer when I do.

Also, fancier salt is often marketed as being crucial to proper nasal irrigation, but I’ve relied on the Morton’s girl and her umbrella in the rain for years with no problems.

          Nuevos detalles de la película del origen de 'The Joker': Joaquin Phoenix será el protagonista y el rodaje arrancará en septiembre      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Joker Joaquin Phoenix

Lo que inició como uno de los rumores más interesantes dentro del universo de DC ahora es casi oficial. Dos medios (The Hollywood Reporter y io9) están confirmando que la Warner Bros. ha dado luz verde a la película que se centrará en los orígenes de 'The Joker', el gran archienemigo de Batman.

Según la información, Warner Bros. ha llegado a un acuerdo con Joaquin Phoenix para que interprete al Joker y todo será anunciado de forma oficial la siguiente semana en uno de los paneles de la Comic-Con en San Diego. Ambos medios aseguran que todos estos detalles provienen de fuentes confiables de la misma Warner, aunque deberemos esperar la confirmación por parte del estudio. Mientras tanto, echemos un vistazo el resto de la información.

Una historia alejada del actual universo cinematográfico de DC

Además del fichaje de Joaquín Phoenix como el protagonista de la cinta, la información apunta a que la producción contará con un presupuesto de 55 millones de dólares, el rodaje iniciará este mes de septiembre en Nueva York y será dirigida por Todd Phillips, quien también co-escribirá el guión junto a Scott Silver.

De hecho ya tenemos la primera sinopsis:

"En 'The Joker' exploraremos la vida de un hombre despreciado por la sociedad, donde no es sólo trataremos de adentraros en su carácter energético, sino también de contar una historia más amplia."

Por lo anterior se confirmaría que esta película estaría alejada del actual universo cinematográfico de DC, ya que se centraría exclusivamente en la vida de The Joker antes de ser enemigo de Batman, así como las razones que lo llevaron a convertirse en uno de los más grandes villanos en la historia de los cómics.

Se dice que Warner estaría buscando que la historia no esté relacionada con el actual cine de superheroes, por lo que no habría mucha acción y el peso estaría en la trama y los diálogos. Aquí es donde entraría la actuación de Joaquín Phoenix, quien se encargaría de hacernos entender por qué el Joker es el Joker.

The Joker Origins

Al ver que la fecha de rodaje está a la vuelta de la esquina, se cree que Warner tiene pensado estrenar la película a más tardar en a finales de 2019, aunque aún no hay una fecha definida dentro del estudio. Por otro lado, los 55 millones de presupuesto están muy por debajo de los actuales presupuestos del cine, y es aquí es donde entraría el factor de las actuaciones y la trama, ya que la película no requeriría efectos visuales.

De hecho se comenta que la película sería demasiado oscura, dirigida a un publico adulto como si se tratase de un drama criminal gestado en el cine experimental. La cinta sería producida por Emma Tillinger Koskoff y Richard Baratta, y aquí habría que recodar que se había mencionado que Martin Scorsese estaría relacionado con el proyecto, pero estos nuevos rumores ya no mencionan nada al respecto de su participación.

Ahora, al parecer, no tendremos que esperar mucho, ya que en los próximos días deberíamos tener la confirmación y todos los detalles oficiales de la nueva película de 'The Joker'.

Это цитата сообщения макошь311 Оригинальное сообщениеЯ ТУТ, ВРОДЕ, С ЖЕНЩИНОЙ ЖИТЬ НАУЧИЛСЯ

Я научился жить с женщиной.

Это не так, как пишут в романах.

Например, я не знал, что длинные волосы у женщины — это не только редкая красота, касающаяся ее поясницы, ее женственность и шарм. Но и аккуратность в самую первую очередь с моей стороны. 

Ведь, когда она лежит рядом со мной, я должен обязательно помнить о том, что нужно убрать сначала ее волосы с подушки, а затем прилечь к ней ближе. Это со временем становится привычкой.

Я не знал, что если у нее плохое настроение, то следует немедленно ее обнять, выяснить в чем же дело, а затем успокоить. У меня с этим совсем по-другому. Когда у меня паршиво на душе, я не люблю, когда меня об этом спрашивают, лезут мне в душу — такие моменты мне нужно всегда переболеть самому.

Я не знал, что если она никогда не просит меня о помощи, то всегда ждет, когда я сам предложу. «Не трогай, я сделаю сам!». «Да я могу и сама…» Нет, не может! Точнее ждет, когда я настою на своем. Ей важно чувствовать себя женщиной, а лошадью могу побыть и я. Кстати! Если не позволять ей поднимать ничего тяжелее букета роз, то в скором времени можно заметить, что плохое настроение у нее бывает реже, а улыбка на лице каждый день.

Я не знал и того, что женщина — это не только любовница, с которой можно разделить постель, ванную, кухонный стол. Но еще и друг, которого нужно внимательно слушать. Слышать, когда слушаешь, даже, когда она говорит ни о чем. Женщина — не загадка, нет. И на каждый свой вопрос, я могу получить ответ, если буду хоть немного внимательнее. Она всегда говорит, что ей нужно. Всегда! Странно, когда мужчины говорят, что не знают, чего хочет их женщина. Скорее всего, им не хочется этого знать.

Я не знал, что отношения — это не только я, но еще и «я» в квадрате. Каждый должен делать свой шаг, пока оба не столкнутся губами. Если ты стоишь на месте, а другой идет тебе все время навстречу, то, скорее всего, однажды ты останешься у него позади. Каждый делает свой шаг.

А столкнуть в пропасть другого — это еще далеко не конец. Из любой ямы всегда можно выбраться, главное — не отвергнуть руку того, кто тебя туда толкнул. А вцепившись в нее, не ждать удобного момента, когда можно толкнуть в ответ. Делать «в ответ» и «взаимно» — это пить яд обоим из одного бокала. Даже, когда другой знает о губительном свойстве. Нужно выливать из сосуда то, что убивает, а вместо него наливать то, что даёт сладость

Например, месть, которая — блюдо, и только в холодном виде, не дает ожидаемого эффекта, а всего лишь аффект. Как, например, нежность рук — от нее пьянеешь гораздо сильнее, чем от любого отменного вина. Нежность, как блюдо, советуют подавать «в ответ»! Но только в горячем виде.

Я не знал, что чувства находятся не внизу живота, а на кончиках пальцев, которыми ты прикасаешься к ней. И если арфа играет, значит это твой инструмент. Ведь пальцы невозможно настроить. В тебе либо есть талант, либо его нет…

          Slam Land Dunks on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC, August 7      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Slam Land Dunks on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC, August 7 ROCHESTER, NY – July 10, 2018 – Slam Land, the surreal competitive party game from Bread Machine Games where brawling and balling meet in a weird and wacky pastime, dunks its way onto Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Mac on August 7, 2018. Easy to pick up but with depth to match, Slam Land is a fast-paced, chaotic experience where a bizarre blue giant enlists a cast of comical competitors to dunk one another into hoops for his amusement. So, (literally) grab up to four friends and face off in local multiplayer matches where opponents must grapple, lunging at and dodging away from each other as they vie to seize and shoot their adversaries into a variety of bizarre goals ranging from tree hollows to gaping maws. Alongside these “Slam” matches, where players race against the clock to score the most points or outlast each other in stock contests, Slam Land sports a variety of additional game types to ensure things always stay fresh. These include the hot potato-like “Peanut Mode,” where scores become more valuable the longer players hold on to the titular peanut. Slam Land also features a distinctive take on the classic basketball activity “H.O.R.S.E.,” where lettered NPCs spawn and players shoot them to fill out the word. And then there’s the wildest mode of all, “Trash,” which sees garbage rain from the sky that can be stacked into massive piles and dunked. Propelled by a percussive, energetic soundtrack and a playful hand-drawn cartoon art style, Slam Land is a joyful and energetic experience that will have friends laughing and screaming no matter which whimsical game type they find themselves clashing in. “Slam Land is an intense party game where friends can get together and drunk each other in our weird mashup of basketball and fighting game,” says Keith McCullough, creative director, Bread Machine Games. “We look forward to introducing the world to this cheeky, surreal world and awesome group of game modes when we’re ready to release this July.” Slam Land will retail for $7.99 / €7.99 via the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Store, and Steam. To learn more, visit Slam Land’s website, follow the game on Twitter, and like it on Facebook. About Bread Machine Games Bread Machine Games is an independent game development studio in Upstate New York that was spun off from Workinman Interactive in 2016. After spending a decade producing games for other companies, Bread Machine has set out to create its own intellectual properties that reflect the team’s down-to-earth culture while incorporating a healthy helping of weirdness.

One more thing to say about this. Wonder woman also killed the villain Ludendorff in her movie with a sword to the chest. Why is this overlooked and we’re still talking about Zod 5 years later? My guess is because Patty Jenkins developed her character more and gave her the one thing that Goyer and Snyder forgot to give superman in his movies... CHARM. The funny thing is that Henry has it in spades yet they chose to downplay that part of his personality because of reasons. Like I’ve stated, I didn’t have a problem with him killing Zod, it was the Lack of reasoning behind it which falls on Goyer and Snyder. I won’t be sad if Goyer never does another comic book property ever again.

ПАМЯТКА НАЧИНАЮЩИМ БЛОГГЕРАМ


Как уменьшить вес картинки для фона в дневник?

Меня часто спрашивают, как на ЛиРу установить фоном картинку?
У многих это не получается, так как есть небольшой "секрет" - вес картинки не должен превышать 80 Кб.

Я уже писала про отличную ПРОГРАММУ для уменьшения веса картинок.

А сегодня я вас научу, как онлайн уменьшить вес картинки и при этом не потерять в качестве.

Сначала узнаем разрешение вашего экрана.
Идем Пуск - Панель управления - Экран - Настройка разрешения экрана


У меня - 1600 х 900
Следовательно, и картинку для фона подбираем не менее этого значения.
Я выбрала вот такой фон для дневника
(1800 Х 1125)


Но вес у него просто огромный! - 977 Кб
Давайте уменьшим его. Идем на этот сервис

Это цитата сообщения izzida Оригинальное сообщениеСЕЛЕЗЁНКА: ИММУННЫЙ ОРГАН ИЛИ «ПРАНИЧЕСКАЯ ЖЕЛЕЗА»? (1)

селезёнка-1

Чего же особенного в органе, напоминающего шляпку гриба, ножкой которого является поджелудочная железа, кроме его «кладбищенской роли» (в медицине селезёнка – «кладбище эритроцитов»)  и иммунной поддержки?

И почему древние относили селезёнку к семи главным эндокринным железам? 

В силу недопонимания или ложной интерпретации? Отнюдь.

Как показывает история, именно в кругу тайных братств хранилось подлинное знание о нашей многосложной природе. 

Поэтому данный материал – своеобразный экскурс по этим «специфическим» знаниям, которые  являются не менее ценными и сегодня. 

Я также продолжаю своё исследование в цикле материалов «ЭНДОКРИННАЯ СИСТЕМА: НЕИЗВЕСТНОЕ ОБ ИЗВЕСТНОМ» о связи эндокринных органов с их тонкими соответствиями – системой чакр, рассматривая селезёнку с позиций духовной психологии и целительства, ибо она – главный орган получения и передачи оживляющей нас пранической/солнечной энергии.

ТАЙНЫ СЕЛЕЗЁНКИ

В Древнем Китае селезёнка считалась ключевым звеном в системе меридианов стихии «Земля» — Селезёнка — Поджелудочная железа, указывая на первичность селезёнки и неразрывную связь с эндокринным органом (и такое исключение парности двух, казалось бы, разных органов единственное и явно не случайное).

«Функции селезенки не до конца изучены. Долгое время селезёнку считали эндокринной (лишенной выводных протоков) железой. Поскольку нет достоверных данных о секреторной деятельности селезенки, от этой теории пришлось отказаться, хотя в последнее время она в какой-то степени получила вторую жизнь. Теперь селезенке приписывают гормональную регуляцию функции костного мозга». – Гликман. Э. А. Доктор медицинских наук, профессор, Академик ЕАЕН, Академик итальянской академии наук и искусств, почетный ученый Европы, Президент Международной Академии акупунктуры, психопунктуры и восточной медицины «Инь и Ян».

А вот что говорит в этой связи о селезёнке Учитель Тибетец«Центр, называемый селезенкой, доминировал в Лемурийские времена, но сейчас перешел в разряд полностью раскрывшихся и, следовательно, функционирующих автоматически центров и опустился ниже порога сознания.

Селезенка выполняет специфические функции, являясь центром жизненности, связанной с планетарной жизненностью и солнечным излучением. В селезенке соединяются негативная жизнь материи и живая энергия позитивного эфирного тела, после чего между внутренними телами человека (через посредство эфирного тела) и физическим планом проходит так называемая «искра». По отношению к человеку это соединение отражает – на самой низшей ступени эволюционной лестницы – связь души с телом, или – на более высоком витке спирали – духа с материей». – А. А. Бейли. Эзотерическое Целительство.

«Вилочковая железа, селезенка и два надпочечника — связаны с личностью. Гипофиз и шишковидная железа в основном соотносятся с духовной стороной нашей природы». – Макс Гендель.

 «Энергия селезенки касается исключительно физического тела. Она идет ко всем центрам». — М. П. Холл Оккультная анатомия.

СВЯЗЬ СЕЛЕЗЁНКИ С ПЕЧЕНЬЮ И ЭМОЦИЯМИ

Три столетия назад Бёртон назвал печень «фабрикой настроений», заметив, что причиной меланхолии может явиться холод в печени.

Так, что общего у печени и селезёнки?

  • Общее кровоснабжение и лимфообращение
  • Единая связь с ЦНС — центральной нервной системой
  • Фильтрация крови (поступающей в печень по воротной вене и в селезёнку по селезеночной артерии)
  • Разрушение эритроцитов (хотя гемоглобин распадается в основном в селезенке, она поставляет в печень желчные пигменты и железо).

Печень, буквально, нуждается в селезёнке, чтобы накапливать воду, элементы крови, а также синтезировать факторы свертывания крови и обезвреживать токсичные элементы.

В свою очередь, селезенка регулирует накопление в печени жиров, образование холестерина, синтез и распад гликогена, а также ряд других важных организму функций.

Печень тесно связана с селезенкой, как «кама» с эфирным двойником, и оба эти органа принимают участие в кроветворении, только печень — это генерал, а селезенка — его личный адъютант. Все, что не сделано печенью, продолжает и доделывает селезенка». 

Здесь важно подчеркнуть, что камарупа, или тело желаний, «помещается» в большей доле или завитке печени, как об этом свидетельствует восточная мудрость.

В китайской медицине существует Закон Управления.«Этот закон устанавливает способ проверки, ограничения и сдерживания того органа, который подавляет более слабый орган. Согласно Закону Управления, печень управляет селезенкой, селезенка управляет почками, почки управляют сердцем, сердце управляет легкими, легкие управляют печенью».

Если переложить сказанное на язык эмоций, то получится, что гнев управляет раздражением/беспокойством, а то, в свою очередь страхом, который стимулирует радость/эйфорию/экзальтацию, которая неизбежно ведёт к печали и затем вновь к гневу. Такой цикл эмоционального реагирования, связанный с биохимией тела был известен даосам несколько тысячелетий назад и с того времени мало что изменилось.

 «Селезенка является потенциальным источником некоторых негативных эмоций и что опустошение, производимое ее отрицательными качествами, приводит к озабоченности и беспокойству. Слово «сплин», заимствованное из английского и соответствующее английскому названию селезенки, означает удрученность, меланхолию, раздражительность, язвительность». – Мантэк Чиа. Ци Нейцзан – I.

В этом смысле становится понятным выражение Агни Йоги «империл раздражения», как яд поражающий селезёнку: «раздражение, полное империла, открывает доступ темным. Где раздражение, туда направляются разные пришельцы, стремящиеся поживиться и усилить действие яда. Сколько ткани порвано, сколько испытаний, опытов нарушается к радости злобствующих. Советуйте принять это не как сказку, но как опасную действительность».

Я ещё остановлюсь на раздражении в контексте праны и её использования, а сейчас хочу вашему вниманию предложить ещё один любопытный отрывок  из  книги Эзотерические принципы здоровья и целительства Макса Генделя, относительно селезёнки и её связи с кровью:

«Селезенка является входными вратами жизненного тела; в ней солнечная сила, которая в изобилии имеется в окружающей атмосфере, переходит в находящийся под давлением поток, чтобы помочь нам, в осуществлении процессов жизнедеятельности. Кроме того, в ней идет яростная война между телом желаний (астральным телом -авт.) и жизненным телом (эфирным телом -авт.). Мысли, связанные с беспокойством, страхом и гневом, внедряются в кровь следующим образом: в процессе испарения, происходящем в селезенке, возникают частицы плазмы, которые сразу схватываются мыслительным элементалом, формирующим ядро и поселяющимся в нем.

Затем этот элементал начинает свою разрушительную жизнедеятельность, слипаясь с другими продуктами-отходами и распадающимися элементами по всему организму и превращая тело из  храма обитания живого Духа в склеп. Поэтому можно сказать, что каждый лейкоцит, захваченный внешней сущностью, является для Эго потерянной возможностью. Чем больше этих потерянных возможностей находится в теле, тем меньший контроль над телом может осуществлять Эго, поэтому при любых заболеваниях лейкоцитов в организме гораздо больше, чем в здоровом состоянии. Можно также сказать, что человек веселого нрава или искренне религиозный и имеющий абсолютную веру и убежденность в силе божественного провидения и любви носит в себе намного меньше потерянных возможностей, или лейкоцитов, чем те, кто вечно обеспокоен и раздражен.

Так что кровь является важнейшим управляющим «органом» нашего тела. Та мера, в которой мы контролируем свое тело, зависит от способности Эго выражать себя через кровь. Эго способно работать только с помощью эритроцитов, или красных кровяных телец. Всякий раз, когда мы позволяем себе быть негативными, мы производим белые тельца, или лейкоциты, которые, как мы уже видели, являются не «стражами системы», как считает сейчас наука, а ее разрушителями».

 СЕЛЕЗЁНКА – СРЕДОТОЧИЕ И РАСПРЕДЕЛЕНИЕ ПРАНЫ. ЭНЕРГЕТИЧЕСКИЕ ПОТОКИ

Как утверждает М. П. Холл «зонтичная форма селезенки — это только ее внешний покров, под которым скрывается невидимый орган, глубинно связанный с механизмом распределения солнечной силы по всем частям тела».

Здесь речь идёт об эфирном двойнике селезёнки или чакре селезёнки, которая даже после удаления физического органа продолжает оживлять организм человека. правда в отсутствии селезёнки, её функции выполняют другие «игроки», иммунную функцию — вилочковая железа, кроветворную — печень и т.п.

«Жизненная сила, — пишет Макс Гендель, розенкрейцер и мистик, — поглощается жизненным телом через эфирного двойника селезенки, где она, странным образом изменяя свой цвет, приобретает бледно-розовый оттенок и по нервам распределяется по всему плотному телу. Для нервной системы это значит то же, что электрическая сила для системы телеграфной связи».

Тот же автор называет селезенку «источником эктоплазмы, которая, истекая из жизненного тела медиума, участвует в материализации интеллектов, лишенных телесных оболочек».

Эта концепция полностью согласуется с мнением Е.П. Блаватской, которая усматривает соответствие между селезенкой и эфирным двойником, который, в ее понимании, «лежит, свернувшись клубком» в селезенке.

«Эфирное тело есть резервуар жизни тела, среда и носитель праны, а селезенка действует в теле как центр праны, из которого откачивается жизнь, циркулирующая затем по всему телу. Именно поэтому она и считается чрезвычайно чувствительным органом, хотя физическая селезенка — это только покров реальной селезенки». — Е.П. Блаватская. Тайная Доктрина, т. III.

А вот ещё одно описание Макса Генделя селезёнки и её связи с солнечной/пранической энергией: «Селезенка служит входными вратами для солнечных сил, усваиваемых каждым человеком и циркулирующих по телу в виде жизненного флюида, без которого не может жить ни одно существо. По этой причине этот орган управляется Солнцем.

Когда солнечная энергия входит в наше тело через селезенку, преломленный луч имеет красный цвет. Это цвет творческого аспекта Троицы, называемого Иеговой, Святым Духом, который управляет Луной, планетой плодовитости. Поэтому идущий от Солнца жизненный флюид, входя в человеческое тело через селезенку, приобретает оттенок бледно-розового цвета, часто отмечаемый духовно видящими, когда он курсирует по нервам, подобно электричеству в проводах электрической системы. Будучи в нормальном состоянии, химический и жизненный эфиры обеспечивают усвоение, поддерживающее индивида, и оплодотворение, увековечивающее расу».

А вот какое объяснение можно найти в одном из Трактатов о Семи Лучах А. А. Бейли об энергетических потоках и их связи с селезёнкой: «В физическое тело поступают два основных энергетических потока, поток динамической жизни и поток индивидуального сознания, определяющих его активность, качество и форму выражения, а также то впечатление, которое оно производит на свое окружение.

  • Поток динамической жизни поступает в тело через голову и в течение жизненного цикла концентрируется в сердце. Меньший поток вселенской энергии или праны, отличный от индивидуализированной жизненной силы, поступает в физическое тело через селезенку и поднимается в сердце, сливаясь с большим, более важным потоком жизни. Поток жизни питает физическое тело энергией и удерживает его в связном состоянии. Поток пранической энергии оживляет отдельные атомы и клетки, из которых состоит тело.

«Сердце – это источник жизни»; из него начинается циркуляция жизненного потока крови; со времени его развития в Атлантической расе, и последовавшими координацией и ростом астрального, или эмоционального, тела, сердечный центр стал самым важным в теле. Его активность росла параллельно с развитием селезенки, являющейся органом жизненности, праны, или силы физического Солнца в теле.

  • Поток индивидуального сознания собирается в голове, представляет собой аспект души и указывает на уровень сознания, который, в свою очередь, служит показателем эволюционного развития». – Эзотерическое Целительство. 

Причём, передача энергии через эфирное тело ко всем частям плотного физического тела может поступать из разных источников. Но именно в случае с селезёнкой и здоровьем физического тела поступление энергии есть, не чем иным, как планетарной праной,поступающей из планетарной ауры.

ОПАСНОСТИ. СМЕРТЬ И НИТЬ ЖИЗНИ

Для меня не секрет, что материальная форма, её видимый, плотный аспект является объектом внимания негативно поляризованных людей, посылающих неосознанно, или намерено энергию мысли или желания, с целью причинить вред.

Причём такому воздействию подвергаются конкретные органы или системы тела, включая селезёнку, ибо она – ворота жизненности, хорошего самочувствия и здорового функционирования.

«Объектами внимания Черной магии, являются  мозг, легкие, сердце, селезенка и органы воспроизведенияЧерный маг осознанно использует эти физические части тела для генерирования определенного типа силы, являющейся смесью эфирной силы и плотной физической энергии, которая позволяет ему выполнять некоторые формы магической работы, а также оказывать воздействие на физические тела животных и людей. Это знание лежит в основе шаманизма и всех практик типа Вуду, приводящих к истощению и смерти мужчин и женщин, стоящих на пути у Черного мага или причисленных им к врагам.

Нить жизни, серебряная цепочка, или Сутратма* человека является двойной. Собственно нить жизни, или одна из двух нитей, которые составляют сутратму, закреплена в сердце, тогда как другая, воплощающая принцип сознания, закреплена в голове.

Если намерением души является настоящая смерть, то, прежде всего, прекращается работа селезенки, затем обоих малых центров, связанных с дыхательным аппаратом и наконец, сердечного центра, и человек умирает. – А. Бейли. Смерть – великое приключение.

Важно в этой связи отметить, что именно Сушумна является той «серебряной нитью» — Сутратмой, которая связывает физического человека с человеком душевным и по которой передается «положительная энергия духа, отрицательная энергия материи и положительная энергия души».

Серебряная нить жизни СУТРАТМА— нисходящая, дуальная — от МОНАДЫ (Духа) к личности через Душу и нить сознания, соединяющая эфирное тело с другими телами/оболочками, обеспечивая взаимодействие на всех уровнях тонкого плана.

Достижение равновесия между Сушумной и Сутратмой — нынешняя задача человечества.

Повреждение Сутратмы приводит неминуемо к оставлению душой тела. Данное удаление происходит в результате различных кармических факторов и может длиться годами, проявляясь тяжёлыми, неизлечимыми или хроническими болезнями.

В Старославянской книге мертвых также есть упоминание и нити жизни в связи со смертью человека: «После того, как стихии разъединились, и душа умирающего отделилась от плоти, человек переходит из мира Яви на Кромку — мир Сновидений, разделяющий собой Явь и Навь. При этом происходит разрыв нити Макоши (Велесовой, или «серебряной» нити — СУТРАТМА), соединяющей душу и тело при жизни в Яви. Переход в Иной мир сопровождается ощущением полёта (взлёта или падения) по узкому проходу сквозь тьму и особым жужжащим звуком, подобным гулу, издаваемому пчелиным роем».

Как бы то ни было, смерть – не окончание существования, а переход высшего «Я» в иные миры и состояния с сохранением всей кармической памяти и жизненного опыта, записанного на скрижалях духа – кармическом/кетерном теле.

 ПРАНИЧЕСКИЙ ОГОНЬ И ТРЕУГОЛЬНИКИ СЕЛЕЗЁНКИ

Наука Треугольников — древнее знание посвящённых во вневременную мудрость о возможности управления энергией, как в рамках тела, так и вне его. Именно треугольник, как мужская форма, символизируя энергию духа (ян) гармонизирует слишком инь-ские энергии материи/тела, что мы и рассмотрим ниже.

В статье  ОГНЕННАЯ СТИХИЯ ПРЕОБРАЖЕНИЯ я писал о влиянии «огней трения» или физических огней, в той или иной мере воздействующих на наше здоровье.

Так вот, в контексте огней, которые имеют особенно важное практическое значение, рассмотрим эфирное тело человека, которое являясь эфиром, всё же выражает качества активного огня, проявленного через прану.

«В селезенке соединяются негативная жизнь материи и живая энергия позитивного эфирного тела, после чего между внутренними телами человека (через посредство эфирного тела) и физическим планом проходит так называемая «искра». По отношению к человеку это соединение отражает – на самой низшей ступени эволюционной лестницы – связь души с телом, или – на более высоком витке спирали – духа с материей». – М. П.Холл. Целительство.

Данный «пранический огонь» является внешним по отношению к плотному физическому телу. А внутренний, тёмный или скрытый огонь тела(клетки), именуемый как огонь трения есть ни чем иным как совокупностью индивидуальной жизненной силы/энергии, именуемой в в древних традициях огненным Змеем Кундалини.

Таким образом, мы имеем «пранические огни» (внешние по отношению к видимому физическому телу) и внутренние — осуществляющие движение по основным каналам/меридианам тела (общее число которых 144), распространяя и излучая тепло во всех направлениях.

Наиболее важными в плотном физическом теле (так как эфирное тело также физическое, но тонкий его аналог) принимающими агентами огней являются позвоночник (спинномозговой канал), как аналог главного и центрального канала Сушумна и селезёнка — один из центров, образующих пранический треугольник — эфирная селезёнка/чакра/селезёнка — сердечная чакра/вилочковая железа — чакра солнечного сплетения/желудок/поджелудочная железа.

Данный малый пранический треугольник, по сути, является основным в передачи жизненной энергии всему организму посредством центров/чакр, а затем через эндокринные железы и её осаждению/материализации/проявлению, как жизненность и здоровье физических органов и систем.

Таким образом, как утверждает эзотерическая истина, мы имеем малый пранический треугольник, образованный:

а. Плечевым центром/между лопатками, что соответствует центру Анахата чакра/Чаша.

б. Центром вблизи диафрагмы/над диафрагмой — соответствие Манипура чакра/солнечное сплетение.

в. Селезенкой.

Данный сияющий эфирный треугольник служит первопричиной последующей пранической циркуляции во всей системе.

«Процесс ассимиляции осуществляется в этом малом праническом треугольнике, и прана, входящая в каждый центр, трижды циркулирует по треугольнику, прежде чем передается во все части эфирного проводника, а оттуда — в плотное физическое тело.

Главным органом её усвоения служит селезенка — эфирный центр и плотный физический орган. Жизненная сущность из Солнца поступает в эфирную селезенку, а там подвергается процессу интенсификации или девитализации, в зависимости от здорового или больного состояния этого органа. Если человек здоров, получаемая эманация усиливается благодаря его собственной индивидуальной вибрации, и скорость его вибрации повышается, прежде чем поступает в физическую селезенку, или снижается и уменьшается, если человек в плохом состоянии здоровья.

Эти три центра — той же формы, что принимают все центры, напоминая блюдцеобразные впадины, вроде маленьких водоворотов, втягивающих в свою сферу влияния проходящие мимо потоки.

Центры эти можно описать как вихревые воронки с плотно сотканным тройным каналом, проходящим из одного центра в другой и образующим почти отдельную циркуляционную системуТочка выхода из всей этой системы находится в селезенке, со стороны, противоположной входу праны. Жизненный флюид трижды циркулирует через эти три центра и между ними, прежде чем выходит на периферию своей малой системы. Эта последняя циркуляция доносит прану через тонкие переплетенные каналы до каждой части тела, которая полностью насыщается этими эманациями, если можно так выразиться.

Последние, в конце концов, выходят из эфирной системы в виде поверхностного излучения. Праническая сущность исходит из пределов своего временного не-преступи-кольца как эманирующая человеческая прана, которая является той же праной, что и ранее полученная, с добавлением особого качества любого единичного индивидуума, передавшего её во время этой транзитной циркуляции. Выходят сущность плюс индивидуальное качество.

What can a red nose do? It can build a brand. A red nose is the visual hammer for Red Nose Day, a campaign started in the U.K. and has now moved into America. The Red Nose Day fund is a program of Comic Relief, a non-profit that raises money for children living in poverty. Hundreds of charities do similar work, but most don’t become as well-known or raise as much money. The difference? A visual hammer that drives the brand into the mind. It might be a simple or silly thing like a pink ribbon, a yellow bracelet or a red nose. Three visuals that have built powerful, relatively-new non-profit giants.

          макошь311: Сила Света. Боги стихий (1)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Четыре

Боги стихий были порождены не человеком, а самим Космосом.

Это тоже эгрегоры, но не в узком понимании человеческих мыслей, а конгломераты эмоциональных выбросов всего спектра живой вселенной: небесных тел и их обитателей – животных, людей, и растений, если говорить непосредственно о нашей планете. 

В эти эгрегоры входят и души погибших.

Если умершие попадали в землю, их души сливались с земной стихией, если в воду – с водной, если сгорали, – то с огненной, а если их пепел развеивался по воздуху – с воздушной стихией.

Несомненно, что каждой стихией управлял свой эгрегор.

Структурировать и подчинить человеку такой эгрегор – наиболее сложная и трудная задача, которую в далёком прошлом успешно выполняли волхвы. Одним из способов, помогающим им приручить эти природные эгрегоры-стихии, был способ захоронения людей. Насыщая «дикие» эгрегоры стихий душами умерших людей, волхвы, таким образом, подчиняли стихии своей воле. Душа, согласно древним представлениям, окончательно покидает тело через три дня и, если после этого периода человеческое тело предать одной из стихий, душа попадёт на какое-то время в эту стихию. Для этого и существовал специальный обряд, называемый Тризной.

Археологические раскопки и описание путешественников донесли до нас четыре способа захоронения умерших людей, которые использовали наши предки: сжигание и хранение пепла в урнах в красном углу дома (в этом случае душа попадает в эгрегор огня); сжигание и развеивание пепла по ветру (душа присоединяется к эгрегору воздушной стихии); закапывание в землю, и наконец, помещение усопшего в ладью, которую поджигали и пускали свободно плыть по реке. В последних двух случаях душа соединялась соответственно с земной и водной стихиями. Способ захоронения зависел от часа наступления смерти, ибо каждому часу суток соответствует своя стихия.

Из дошедших до нас сведениях о Богах, можно сделать практически однозначный вывод, что стихиями огня, земли, воздуха и воды могли управлять соответственно: Даждьбог, Макошь, Стрибог и Ярило.

 

ДАЖДЬБОГ. Даждьбог (Дажьбог, Дажба, Дабог, Дабо, Даба, Дацьбог, и пр).

Даждьбог – прежде всего дающий Бог. Но образ имени Бога значительно шире и отражён в значениях слов того же извода. От готского «дагс» и немецкого «таг» – день. Несёт этот образ и руна Дагаз. В первую очередь Дагаз символизирует начало чего-то хорошего, ассоциируется с восходом, светом в конце тоннеля. С другой стороны, это символ жаркого, насыщенного, расслабляющего полудня. Триумф – его иное название, в статичном смысле. Это знак получения, отдыха после тяжкого труда, преуспевания, расслабления, достижения. В динамике – спокойного развития, отсутствия препятствий и преград, полной защиты, устранения врагов и соперников. Таков внутренний смысл Дагаз.

Руна в эзотерическом смысле говорит о выборе правильного направления развития, правильном прохождении уроков. Энергетика того, кому она освещает путь, гармонична, как никогда. Впереди некие приятные события, в загаданной сфере. Отрицательной ее стороной считают то что она не дает гарантий. Дагаз – руна, открывающая дороги, но не ведущая по ним. 

  Геза фон Неменьи связывает с этой руной скандогерманские божества Даг (день) и Бальдег, Бальдр, а также героев Свипдага (сканд.), Свибдагера (датск.), Свевдега (англосакс.), а также кельтское божество Дагда («добрый»). Корень «даг», «дажь» связывают также с санскритским корнем «даг» – жечь – и литовским «дегу», гореть, откуда и наше «дёготь».

Даждьбог – сын Сварога. Сварог – Бог Неба, а Даждьбог – Бог Солнца. По представлениям предков именно небо породило Солнце, что не надо понимать как небо непосредственно у нас над головой. Видимое небо – это бесконечный Космос, а не воздушная прослойка над нами, где летают птицы. Судя по тому, что изначально был Сварог – Небо, который породил сына Даждьбога – Солнце, многие исследователи приходят к выводу, что славяне считали изначальным тьму, которая породила свет. В этом есть доля истины, хотя и с этим можно поспорить, так как существует упоминание о том, что древние верили (а несомненно так и есть): свет существует независимо от Солнца.

Даждьбог – установитель ритуалов, жертвоприношений, организатор культа, выражаясь современным языком. Он прославился установлением брачных обычаев, двенадцатимесячного календаря и тем, что именно в его время начали платить дань царям.

Кстати, судя по описанию Константина Рождённого в Пурпуре, объезды великих князей киевских подчинённых им земель (союзов племён, выражаясь суконным языком этнографической науки) происходил по часовой стрелке, как говорили в Древней Руси, посолонь – по ходу движения Солнца. А дань имела в те времена характер не столько хозяйственно-экономический, сколько ритуальный.

Князь, гостя у своих подданных, принимая от них угощение-полюдье, как бы делился с ними своей магической силой и удачей, той самой Языческой благодатью.

Цвет соответствующий Даждьбогу – белый, т.е. неразделённый и несущий в себе потенциал всех спектров.

 

МАКОШЬ. Культ Макоши был весьма распространён на Руси, ряд исследователей связывают её со всем нижним, левым, тёмным, влажным, с дождём, ночью, половой жизнью и плодородием. К сожалению ни одно из этих представлений не соответствует действительности. В разных местах России встречаются различные произношения: Мокошь, Мокша, Макеш, Магощ. От последнего, по мнению исследователя славянского вопроса Г. Глинки, жившего в ХIХ веке, происходит слово «могущь» (могущество), которое связано с богатством, а поэтому Макошь он считает богиней скота. По представлениям же Б. А. Рыбакова и ряда других исследователей Макошь является богиней плодородия. В действительности же слово «Макошь» («ма» – мать и «кош» – «судьба»), можно прочесть как «мать судьбы». А кто или что, кроме Земли, может полностью определять нашу судьбу (жизнь)? От чего непосредственно зависит будущее человека? Разве не от Земли? К тому же египетская богиня нижнего мира называлась «Ма». Поэтому именно Макошь – является олицетворением стихии земли. Конечно, она не только даёт плодородие. Благодаря этой стихии могут происходить и землетрясения, которые опять-таки ею же могут быть и остановлены. Как пишет Блаватская слово Маш-мак (созвучное с Макошью) по преданию у атлантов означало силу, которая в один миг могла стереть в порошок целые города и разрушить мир. Она ведает всеми богатствами Земли и может или допустить людей, или закрыть доступ к ним. Ряд исследователей связывают её с санскритскими корнями «мук» – освобождать, отпускать; «мокша» – освобождение, утекание, смерть; «моки» – ночь, освободительница. Но все эти трактовки вряд ли доказуемы, поскольку не Макошь происходит от этих слов, а наоборот, эти слова произошли от имени этой богини и приобрели несколько иной смысловой оттенок.

В какой-то степени Хозяйка медной горы – персонаж сказов П. П. Бажова, действительно наблюдаемый в жизни, есть не кто иной, как Макошь. То, что древние боги были и остаются вполне реальными участниками нашей повседневной жизни, в свете последних открытий, стало несомненным фактом. Но, в отличие от духов, которые периодически буднично встречаются людям, манифестация богов носит торжественный, величественный характер, и являются они, как правило, со всей своей свитой в местах наибольшего скопления людей. Вспомните уже ставшие классическими случаи видения «Девы Марии» в Каире, Фатиме, Сараево (хотя в последних случаях явления носили явно сатанинский характер), или описание в древнегреческих легендах появления Деметры и др. богинь со своим свитами. В реальной практике таких случаев, не ставших достоянием гласности, значительно больше. Можно, конечно, сомневаться в подлинности этих событий или пытаться объяснить их массовым гипнозом, хотя полученные фотографии, обошедшие весь мир, снижают долю скептицизма.

Цвет соответствующий Макоши – чёрный, т.е. не излучающий, а поглощающий световой поток.

 

СТРИБОГ (Стриба). В «Слове о полку Игореве» ветры названы стрибожьими внуками, что дало основание исследователям говорить о нём как о боге воздушной стихии. Стрибог был дедом, прародитель всех видов ветров, а их названий в русском языке существует множество. В древности воздушные явления, такие как Ураган, Вьюга, Метель, Посвист, Ветер – воспринимались нашими предками, как живые существа. Возглавлял же всё это ветровое разнообразие бог воздушной стихии – Стрибог. Артур Кларк, наслушавшись невероятных рассказов очевидцев о разумном поведении ветра, когда он преследуют человека, чем-то провинившегося перед ним, написал интересный фантастически рассказ, не подозревая, наверное, что затронул одну из глубочайших тайн Природы – её разумность. Человек разумен, но он лишь часть Природы. А часть не может быть развита больше целого, т.е. Природа тоже разумна и, мало того, она гораздо разумней человека. Ряд исследователей справедливо полагают, что имя бога «Стрибог» связано с санскритскими корнем «стри» – простирать, расширять, и словом «простара» – простор, пространство.

Цвет соответствующий Стрибогу – красный.

 

ЯРИЛО. Приведем описание празднования Ярилы вешнего.

Ярило Вешний – древний славянский природный праздник (животноводческий и аграрный). В народе его также называют Ярило Теплый. В более позднее время, в эпоху двоеверия, этот праздник называли Егорий. Праздновали Ярилу в 20-ых числах апреля-месяца. 

Ярило Вешний – добрый и заботливый хозяин полей и лугов. Он зачинает Весну, отмыкает Землю, выпуская из-под земного спуда траву зелёную да росу медовую, покровительствует мужику-хлеборобу, давая мочь-силу озимым да всходам. 

По древним поверьям, Ярило перед своим вешним днём садится на белого коня и, держа в деснице живую ветвь да в шуйце – мёртвую голову (его знаки владычества над жизнью и смертью), объезжает все леса и поля, собирая дикое зверьё, и отдаёт хозяйские наказы: где кормиться, где пастись, где охотиться. Ярило – покровитель всякой окруты и волчий пастырь.

Ярило Храбрый – покровитель молодецкой удали, воинской доблести, любовного пыла. Древние видели в небесах Ярилу на белом коне. Перед ним бежала стая волков, за ним – стадо кабанов, позади – олени и медведи, по бокам – лисицы и куницы, зайцы и соболицы.

Праздновали Ярилу широко. Первыми за дело брались Жрецы и Ведуньи. Главным делом жреческим на праздновании Ярилы Вешнего было:

Решетом воду носить, В ступе воду толочь, Да Вилами по воде писать.

В более поздние времена значения этих действ интерпретировали не иначе, как проявление бесполезной работы и бесцельное времяпровождение. Но что же это на самом деле? 

Жрец брал воду из семи источников и решетом переливал эту воду в ступу. Далее Жрец брал пест и начинал пестовать им воду в ступе (т.е. воду толочь), перемешивая между собой семь вод и выталкивая всё негативное, что могло быть в воде, создавая тем самым общий позитивный фон в воде. Далее Ведунья наговаривала на воду, а затем обрядовыми вилами «писала» на воде Черты – боговы знаки, придавая воде нужную структуру. После действа Жрец и Ведунья разносили наговорённую воду по домам, добавляя по кружке в бочки с питьевой водой. Таким образом, вся вода в каждой бочке становилась структурированной.

Праздник Ярилы связан с началом выгона домашнего скота на пастбища. Это был очень важный день для крестьян, и относились к нему с особым вниманием. Выгоняя в первый раз скот в поле, накрывали стол скатертью, клали на стол хлеб да соль, зажигали свечи. Далее отрезали край хлеба, посыпали солью, заворачивали в тряпку и выходили во двор к собранному скоту. Скот кропили водой, окружали нитками, а затем хозяин дома, держа в одной руке хлеб, а в другой – ветки вербы, выгонял скот через ворота, в которых заранее был положен замок, а на нём сковорода, покрытая сверху навозом. Выгнав скот в поле, хозяин надламывал ветку вербы, клал её на землю, на ветку клал хлеб с солью, при этом говорил: «Ярило, вот тебе хлеб и соль. Паси мой скот, Ярило, чтоб не было никакого лиха!»

Лошадей выделяли особо. Ярило считается покровителем лошадей. Ярилин день – конский праздник.

Важную роль в этом празднике играли пастухи. В этот день выбирали пастуха, который весь сезон будет пасти деревенское стадо. Чествовали его, одаривали подарками, угощали мирской яичницей. После пастуха окатывали водой, чтобы всё лето не дремал, а пастух говорил такие слова: «Хоть все глаза прогляди, а без Ярилы не углядишь за стадом». И обращался к Яриле, чтобы стаду впрок корма подножные шли, чтобы паслось стадо подобру-поздорову, не делало потрав на чужих полях, чтобы хранил Ярило стадо от зверя дикого. 

Делали это наши предки от сердца да по совести. Есть в этом и мудрость народная, и деяния нужные, и скоморошины. Сопрягали они пути свои земные с путями небесными. Мы же сегодня на праздниках наших исконных огни зажигаем, Требы Силам Природы (что есть от Рода) приносим, чествуем Ярилу, землю вскрываем да босыми ногами на место то встаём, чтобы почувствовать животоки сил Земли-Матушки да силу её принять.

Цвет соответствующий Яриле – зелёный.

Земля, вода, воздух, огонь. Собственно говоря, образ четырёх стихий отражает четыре состояния вещества: твёрдое, жидкое, газообразное и плазма. И уже совсем близко мы подходим к «пятому элементу» – «эфиру». 

 

Пять

«...И нача княжити Володимеръ в Киев… единъ, и постави кумиры на холму вне двора теремнаго: Перуна древяна, а главу его сребрену, а ус златъ, и Хорса Даждьбога, и Стрибога, и Семаргла, и Макошь. И жряху имъ наричюе я богы»…

Так говорит «Повесть Временных лет» под 6488 годом от сотворения мира, по нашему летоисчислению – 980.

Кроме широко прославленной индуистской «Троицы»-Тримурти, существует и культ пятёрки Богов. Он так и называется – Панчадэватта, буквально – Пятибожие.

Эти Божества – Вишну-Нараяна, Сурья (Солнечный Бог), Рудра (Божество бурь и ветров, свирепый лучник), Ганеша – обаятельное существо с пухленьким телом младенца и головою слонёнка, и Дэви, Богиня-Мать.

Пятибожие галлов или кельтов – высокого, голубоглазого, золотоволосого народа, занимавшего когда-то огромные земли Европы от современной Португалии (буквально – «пристани галлов»), испанской Галисии и Голландии до нашего Галича и малоазиатской Галатии.

Сейчас кельты-гэлы ютятся на Британских островах (шотландцы, ирландцы, валлийцы) и Бретонском полуострове на северо-западе Франции.

Это всё, что осталось от былого великолепия народа бесстрашных воинов, великолепных металлургов, искуснейших ювелиров, отличных мореходов, великих певцов и поэтов (достаточно вспомнить, что слово «бард» – кельтского происхождения).

Они подарили миру меч и кольчугу, свод и плетёный орнамент, короля Артура и легенду о святом Граале. Их культура оставила след в славянской, германской, скандинавской, англосаксонской, испанской, французской, византийской.

Именно кельтские мореходы первыми проторили торговый путь по Восточной Европе из Балтики в Каспий.

Чего не хватило народу мудрецов, воителей и творцов, чтоб сохранить свою цивилизацию? До сих пор загадка. О сродстве кельтской Веры со славяно-русской говорят немало.

В I веке до христианской эры великий полководец и государственный муж Гай Юлий Цезарь отправился покорять галлов. Галлы были старинными врагами Рима – в свое время именно они подошли под стены Рима, и взяли бы его, если б не поднявшие тревогу священные гуси.

Цезарь завоевал Галлию и подчинил её власти Рима. Вожди галлов сложили перед ним оружие.

Цезарь провел в Галлии восемь лет и свёл дружбу с друидом – представителем всевластной жреческой касты галлов – Дивитиакусом из племени эдуев. Свои впечатления от той войны, от страны и народов, которые он покорил, Юлий Цезарь обобщил в труде «Галльская война».

О верованиях галлов он рассказал в одной из глав своего труда, но по тогдашней традиции назвал – дабы быть понятым своими согражданами – галльских Богов римскими именами.

Цезарь, в отличие от Геродота, туземных галльских имен упоминать не стал. Так и остались они скрыты от будущих поколений под римскими «псевдонимами».

Цезарь называет их Юпитером, Аполлоном, Марсом, Меркурием и Минервой.

Юпитера, говорит великий римлянин, галлы почитают как «Владыку неба», Аполлона – как целителя, Марс галлов, так же, как и римский, был Богом войны, а Меркурий – наиболее почитаемый в Пятёрке – считался галлами изобретателем ремёсел и покровителем торговцев. Про какие-нибудь особенности культа галльской «Минервы» Цезарь умалчивает.

По более поздним надписям мы можем более или менее точно определить, что «Минерву» её галльские почитатели звали Бригантией или Бригиттой – это имя исследователи считают родственным скандинавскому «Фригг» и славянскому «Берегиня».

Впоследствии Языческую Богиню Бригитту сделали католической святой, не сменив даже имени.

«Юпитер» же на самом деле назывался Таранисом (буквально – «громом») и изображался с громовым колесом о шести спицах в руке – такое же в Древней Руси символизировало Перуна, его вырезали на притолоках дверей, потолочных балках-матицах, деревянном узорочье наружной стороны избы – полотенцах, очельях, причелинах, наличниках.

Делали это с двойной целью – защитить дом от недоброй силы знаком грозного Божества – и оберечь этот же дом от гнева самого Громовержца своеобразным мистическим «громоотводом». С прочими мужскими Божествами галлов такой ясности нет.

А теперь стоит сравнить киевское Пятибожие, индийскую Панчадэватту и пятёрку главных Богов галлов из книги Цезаря. Во всех перечнях-пятёрках только по одному женскому Божеству (Макошь, Деви, «Минерва»). В каждом – по одному солнечному Божеству (Хорс Даждьбог, Сурья, «Аполлон»).

Повелитель бурь и ветров, лучник Рудра, вызывает в памяти строки русского «Слова о полку Игореве»: «Се ветры, Стрибожи внуци, веют стрелами от моря».

Очевидно, им соответствует галльский воин «Марс». «Юпитер», верховный Бог и Громовержец, очень напоминает Перуна. И если Цезарь называет галльского «Юпитера» владыкой небес, то в одном из древнерусских сочинений XV века на вопрос: «Колико есть небес?» – даётся ответ: «ПЕРУНЪ есть многь». То есть Перун – это как бы и есть небо.

Но кто соответствует в индийской Панчадэватте галльскому «Юпитеру»-Таранису и русскому Перуну (оба имени, кстати, буквально обозначают «гром»)?

Следует предположить, что и в Панчадэватте произошла подмена Индры Упендрой-Вишну. И изначально индийскую божественную пятёрку возглавлял повелитель небес, Громовержец Индра, в Ведах – царь Богов-Дэвов, вполне сопоставимый с Перуном русов и «Юпитером»-Таранисом галлов.

Итого: в трёх пятёрках Богов главные места занимают Громовержцы, воплощающие собою небо (киевский Перун, индийский Индра, галльский «Юпитер»-Таранис), затем следуют солнечные Божества (Хорс Даждьбог, Сурья, «Аполлон»). Очень похожи наш Стрибог и индуистский Рудра – оба связаны со стрелами и бурей.

Про галльского «Марса» мы знаем гораздо меньше (собственно, только о Его воинственности), но в компанию он, пожалуй, вписывается. Женские Божества – по одному в каждой Пятёрке (Макошь, Деви, «Минерва»-Бригитта). Зато гораздо труднее сравнивать Семаргла, про которого мы, по сути, совершенно ничего не знаем, кроме имени, с «Меркурием» галлов, о котором тоже не очень много известно, и Ганешей, про которого известно-то много, да вот только он явно чересчур изменился с тех пор, как ведические арии, предки индийцев, вторглись с севера в Индостан.

 

Перун.

Перун (Перен, белорусское Пярун, словацкое Паром и т.д.).

Но само имя Громовержца много, много древней. Об этом говорит и балтский культ Перкунаса, и культ Пируа-громовика у хеттов, индоевропейского народа, побеждавшего фараонов Древнего Египта, и одно из имён Индры – Парьянья (иногда, впрочем, Перуна сопоставляют с другим ведическим Божеством – Варуной).

Сюда же относится титан Гиперион из греческой мифологии.

Титанов многие учёные считают Богами древнейшего населения Балкан – пеласгов, которых сменили в истории – и «победили» в мифах – эллинские Олимпийцы во главе с Зевсом (в славянском переводе античного романа «Александрия», посвящённого жизни и подвигам Александра Македонского, имя Зевса переводится как раз как «Перун»).

Гиперион, кстати, отец солнечного Гелиоса, а сам Зевс – отец Светозарного Аполлона, что придаёт дополнительный вес предположению, что отец «Солнца-царя» Даждьбога Сварог – это тот же Перун, только под другим именем. Культ Перуна уходит корнями в доисторические глубины, и не зря его символами и святынями считали находившиеся кое-где после бурных дождей и гроз кремневые стрелки и каменные топоры.

Почитание этих топорков – как и почитание самого Громовержца – дожило местами до XX века.

Кроме тёзок, у Перуна были и носившие другие имена подобия-близнецы в пантеонах индоевропейских народов. Это Зевс эллинов, Юпитер римлян, Таранис кельтов-галлов, Веретрагна иранцев, Доннар германцев, Тунор англосаксов и Тор скандинавов. В их культах очень много общего.

Доннар, Тор, Таранис на языках народов, почитавших этих Богов (или всё же вернее сказать – этого Бога?) обозначало гром. По-русски гром назывался перуном ещё во времена Алексея Михайловича. По- белорусски, по-польски, по-словацки имя Бога переводится как гром, молния.

Так что и эти Боги – тёзки русского Громовержца. Почитание Громовержца оставило след в названии местностей и личных именах по всему славянскому миру.

Именно в честь Перуна, судя по всему, совершал в болгарском городе Доростоле торжественные жертвоприношения великий князь русский, Святослав Игоревич, по сообщению византийца Льва Диакона. Дело в том, что обряды эти происходили 20 июля 971 года, а именно этот день в традиции русского «народного православия» стал днём празднования Громовика Ильи.

Перуна упоминают в паре с Волосом договоры с Византией Олега Вещего, одного – договор 944 года Игоря Рюриковича, и не то в паре с Волосом, не то в тройке с ним же и неким не поименованным конкретнее Богом – договор 972 года Святослава Игоревича Храброго.

Если Волосу клянутся на золотых обручах-браслетах, то Перуну – на оружии.

Клыки вепря в Перуновых дубах – символ жреческой власти Громовержца. Балтийский Перкунас, грузинский Пиркуши были покровителями кузнецов – а кузнецы во многих культурах Евразии воспринимались как чародеи.

Перун как покровитель воинства, прежде всего, олицетворяет доблесть и благородство. Это ему клялись на мечах воины-русы Олега Вещего, Игоря Старого, Святослава Храброго. И не зря, когда «Слово о полку Игореве», не упоминавшее Перуна прямо, хочет описать надвигающуюся битву – оно говорит о надвигающейся грозе.

продолжение

Ярь – это весна, зелень, вешний хлеб, желание, похоть, ярец – май, яр – жар. Слово «ярь»-весна схоже с немецким (yahr), английским (year) обозначением года, отсюда же греческое «эра».

Переярок – волчонок, переживший одну весну, а овечка, пережившая весну, – ярка. Яро – шибко, быстро, скоро, ярун – похотливый (или токующий тетерев, или бык-производитель), ярость – гнев и похоть, яриться – чувствовать похоть, сербское слово «ярич» обозначает любовный жар. 

Греческое слово «эрос» и латинское «эрекция» родственны имени русского Бога. В Костроме есть Ярилово поле, под Кинешмою была Ярилова роща, у Плещеева озера – гора Ярилина плешь, село Ерилово в дорогобужском уезде, урочища Яриловичи в тихвинском и в валдайском, Ярилова долина около Владимира, и так далее и тому подобное.

 

Снова о Макоши.

Макошь (Мокошь, Макешь, Мокуша и пр.) – единственная Богиня киевского Пятибожия – из чего, понятное дело, отнюдь не следует, что она была единственной Богиней русов и славян.

Она упоминается во множестве поучений, обличительных «Слов», житиях, исповедных вопросах.

Эта Богиня упоминается в поучениях против Язычества обычно вместе с «вилами» – теми самыми стихийными девами, о которых мы говорили в начале книги.

Иногда её называют «Мокошь-Дива», что сходно с индуистским «Дэви», а равно и с названием последней из пяти частей Уэльса – Диведом. В поучениях и «словах» Мокошь сравнивают с суровой Гекатой, идолы которой (весьма, к слову сказать, напоминающие гневные формы индуистской Дэви) вымазаны жертвенной кровью.

Суровый характер Богини подтверждается также и засвидетельствованной ещё Далем поговоркой – «Бог не Макешь, чем-нибудь да потешит».

Под «Богом» здесь скорее всего уже подразумевается милосердный «Господь» христиан, в противоположность «Макеши»-Мокоши, от которой ждать милостей неразумно.

На месте капища Мокоши стоит, по всей видимости, Мокошинский монастырь в Черниговской области (как Перыньская обитель в Новгородчине — на месте капища Громовержца).

Названия Мокош, Мокошницы, Мокошин верх известны в Польше, Чехии, у полабских славян – Мукуш, Мукеш, лужицкое Мокошице.

В Пскове жил тиун-управитель Хлоптун Мокуша. Словенцам известна сказка о колдунье по имени Мокошка. Ещё в XVI столетии в исповедальниках, так называемых «худых номоканунцах», исповедникам предписывалось задавать «духовным дочерям» вопрос: «Не ходила ли еси к Мокуше?»

Любопытно, что этот вопрос должен был задаваться среди запретов на всякого рода гадания – «Мокуша»-Мокошь, очевидно, почиталась способной предвещать будущее.

Рыбаков в этой связи указывает на мелькающее в обличениях Языческих суеверий словцо «кошь» или «къшь», упоминающееся рядом с верой в сны («сносудец»), предопределение («усрячу», Сречу). В одном таком списке вместо «кошь» написано Мокошь.

Рыбаков обращается к работам И.И. Срезневского.

По-древнерусски «къшь» – жребий, «къшение» или «кошение» – жеребьёвка, «кошитися» – метать жребий, наконец, «прокъшити» – победить в жеребьёвке (было даже славянское имя Прокош).

С другой стороны, Рыбаков обращает внимание на такие слова, как «кошьница», «кошель», «кошуля» – ёмкости для зерна и хлеба. В связи с этим Борис Александрович предполагал, что имя Богини может быть истолковано как «Ма(ть) судьбы, жребия, участи» или же «Мать коробов, мать урожая».

То есть Макошь становилась Богиней судьбы и плодородия.

Вместе с тем он допускал и толкование от «мокнуть, мокрый» – сравним: «Мать Сыра Земля».

Созвездие Водолея в древней Руси называлось Мокрошь или Мокрешь, моравский историк XVIII века Стржедовский упоминает божество Макосла, связанное с водой, «мокридами» на русском Севере называли обряд, когда в почитаемый колодец бросали пряжу, кудель, что выводит нас на третье истолкование имени русской Богини.

В литовском языке есть слова makstiti – «плести», meksti – «вязать», maks – «торба, мошна» (мы опять возвращаемся к кошулям и кошелям Рыбакова). Из этих и других слов языковеды-лингвисты восстанавливают предполагаемое праславянское слово mokos – прядение.

Это напоминает о Мокуше – странноватом существе из быличек и поговорок русского Севера, с большой головой и руками, очень любящее прясть – когда в ночной темноте в спящем доме слышалось жужжание вращающегося веретена, говорили – «Мокуша прядёт».

Ей же приписывалась «стрижка» вытертой овцами шерсти (видимо, чтобы прясть из неё). Чтоб не вынуждать Мокушу к таким действиям, ей оставляли что-то вроде жертвы – после стрижки овец оставляли для неё клок шерсти в ножницах. Ленивой девке насмешливо говорили: «Спи, Мокуша пряжу спрядёт за тебя».

Мокошь/Макошь – пряха. А пряха в мифологии существо более чем почтенное.

Она воплощает ни много ни мало – Судьбу, высшее понятие любой Языческой мифологии. В Ведах с прядением или тканьем сравнивали само творение мироздания.

Огромным почётом окружали прядение и связанные с ним вещи и понятия на Руси.

Резной узор, покрывавший прялку, включал и «Громовые колёса» с шестью спицами, и солнечные символы, и воплощающие землю квадраты и ромбы – короче говоря, тут был весь мир, от недр, обозначенных изображением змея или некоего драконоподобного существа в основании лопасти, до космических высот с символами светил и грома.

Форму и узоры (и даже технику резьбы) севернорусских прялок полностью повторяют традиционные надгробья Украины и Югославии, каменные надгробья Московского Кремля XIII–XIV веков.

Поскольку прялки устанавливали на могилах перед тем, как там стали устанавливать кресты – стало быть, и изображения на прялках значили для язычников не меньше, чем крест для приверженцев новой религии.

Но самой мощной и глубокой по своему Языческому символизму является прялка с русского Севера XIX века, в своё время описанная Б.А. Рыбаковым. Широко известно (его фотографию часто помещают в книгах по русскому Язычеству, начиная с «Язычества древних славян» самого Бориса Александровича) её донце в виде полуфигуры лежащего на спине мужчины с усами и бородою.

Руки его сложены на груди, как у покойника. Однако глаза широко открыты, а из открытого рта с оскаленными зубами выходит лопасть прялки, узор на которой – напоминаю – является символическим изображением мироздания.

На месте полового органа лежащего на донце вырезано громовое колесо. Именно на нём должна была сидеть пряха.

 

Прялка изготавливалась от начала до конца мужчинами и была традиционным подарком женщине – невесте, жене, дочери. На её донце или, реже, лопасти вырезали, любовно вплетая в орнамент, то самое слово из трех букв, обозначающее мужское производящее начало, которое нынче процарапывают на грязных стенах и заборах.

Композиция прялки очень напоминает изображения Великой Богини-Матери Дэви в Индии, где Она стоит или сидит на теле Своего супруга Шивы, иногда имеющего вид «шавы» – покойника, но со стоящим мужским органом-лингамом. Вот совершенно так же пряха на русском Севере восседала на теле «покойника» с громовым знаком на месте мужского органа, из уст которого исходило мироздание (кстати, и Шиву, и, ещё чаще, самое Дэви в ипостасях Кали или Дурги изображают с высунутым языком).

То есть прядущая уподоблялась ни много ни мало самой Великой Богине-Матери. Соответственно относились и к символике пряжи и нитки. Нить была символом жизни, судьбы.

Отсюда поговорки: «Этой нитке конца не будет», «Жизнь на нитке, а думает о прибытке», «По нитке рубеж». Жизнь, как нитку, связывают с кем-то, она может стать запутанной, а может и оборваться. «Сколько нитку ни вить, а концу быть».

В качестве прядущих жизнь-судьбу могут выступать и сравнительно мелкие духи (русалки, домовухи, кикиморы, та же Мокуша – видеть или слышать их прядущими или ткущими обыкновенно не к добру, хотя упоминаются и исключения), так и существа более крупного порядка наподобие северных норн или античных мойр.

У южных славян такие пряхи (роженицы, суженицы) прядут человеку либо хорошую судьбу (Среча), либо дурную (Несреча). Но у скандинавов наряду с норнами существовала и Фригг, знающая судьбы, восседающая на прялке.

Совершенно так же и на русском Севере, кроме Мокуши, была и более величественная фигура Пряхи – так называемая «святая Пятница».

Кавычки вполне уместны – насколько «Илья-пророк», этот чуть прикрытый христианской терминологией и символикой Громовник Перун крещёной русской деревни, имел мало общего с ветхозаветным фанатиком единобожия, настолько же и «матушка Пятница» северных русских деревень имела предельно мало общего с греческой первохристианской святой великомученицей Параскевой.

Для начала её…отождествляли с Богородицей, что само по себе необычно для христианства и скорее напоминает многоликие Силы Язычества – ту же Дэви, которая проявляется и как Дурга, и как Кали, и как благостная Парвати, и во многих иных образах. На средневековых новгородских иконах «Пятницу» изображали на одной доске с Богородицей, но с другой стороны – это обыкновение, опять-таки не вполне христианское, напоминает многоликие славянские идолы.

Ещё в XX веке в Ленинградской области верующие были убеждены, что «Пятница – это и есть Божья матерь». Фольклорный облик святой рисовал то девицу в белой сорочке и плахте, то растрёпанную нагую женщину с большой головой и большими руками (совершенно как Мокуша), высокую и худую.

Её почитание выражалось в принесении обетов, в том числе – на изготовление полотнищ, которые могли принести в посвященную Параскеве церковь или часовню, а могли – вывесить на ветвях у посвящённого Пятнице почитаемого камня с выемкой в виде человеческого следа, или у родника, или у колодца. Там же – а также на распутьях – стояли изображения «святой», вопреки православной традиции – резные.

Ветви кустов и деревьев вокруг этих православных идолов густо покрывали шнуры и клочья пряжи, пожертвованные почитательницами грозной «святой». Именно в честь «святой Пятницы» русские девушки справляли «макриды», бросая пряжу в колодец.

Она же, считалось, помогает при родах, да и жениха может послать: «Матушка Прасковея, пошли мне жениха поскорее!» Соответственно, постольку, поскольку с Пятницей отождествлялась Богородица, то и сама Богородица ещё со средневековых времён стала изображаться на Руси как Пряха – с веретеном и пряжей в руках. Возникло сказание, в котором будущая мать Христа в отрочестве пряла пурпуровые нити для храмовой завесы.

В заговорах «матушка Богородица», восседающая «на острове Буяне, на бел-горюч-камне Алатыре», как правило, предстаёт именно прядущей.

Тут интересно, что Богородица в народном православии отождествляется с самой землёю – так, мужикам, разбивающим комья земли на пашне палками, бабы пеняли, что они-де бьют саму Богородицу.

У Ф. М. Достоевского тоже выведена монашенка, утверждающая, что Богородица – это Мать-Сыра-Земля. В тех же заговорах мать Христа сливается с древнейшей святыней, Землёй, в неразличимое единство: «Мать Сыра Богородица».

Интуиция исследователя вновь не подвела Бориса Александровича – в Мокоши объединены в одном образе и Земля (влажная, сырая), и Судьба. Разве что напрямую с полями и пашнями Мокошь отождествить трудно – её территорией скорее являются родники, берега рек и распутья – пограничные с дикой, неосвоенной природой участки.

И не зря одним из имён Мокоши было Дива, от которого происходило древнерусское слово «дивий, дивокий» – дикий.

Учёные практически не сомневаются, что под личиной народного культа Параскевы Пятницы (собственно, «параскева» и означает по-гречески Пятница) скрывается культ древнего женского Божества, а именно – Мокоши, прядущей судьбы, покровительствующей рождениям и бракам, повелевающей земной влагой (вспомним о посвящении ей колодцев и источников).

Они тоже покровительствуют женским ремеслам (пряже, ткачеству) и наказывают не почитающих их дней.

«Низшие» черты Богини воплотились в мелкой нечисти Мокуши, но её почитание как Высокой Богини должно было скрыться под христианским псевдонимом. Как в других традициях пятница связана с днем Богини – Венеры, Фригги-Фрейи (Friday) – так и в русской традиции Пятница была связана с Мокошью. Четверг как известно – Перунов день.

А что же с остальными днями недели? А о них сказ на неделе.

After Palin was duped by the fake interview with Cohen, she took to Facebook to blast the comic for the disrespectful sitdown.

“Yup – we were duped. Ya’ got me, Sacha. Feel better now?” an angry Sarah Palin wrote. “I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitive, sick ‘humor’ of the British ‘comedian’ Sacha Baron Cohen, enabled and sponsored by CBS/Showtime.”

          Cast And Creatives Announced For Neil Simon's Classic Comedy BAREFOOT IN THE PARK      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Old Globe's 2018 Summer Season continues with today's announcement of the complete cast and creative team for Barefoot in the Park, as director Jessica Stone (Ken Ludwig's Robin Hood!, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike) returns to the Globe to extend its decades-long relationship with giant comic playwright Neil Simon with this fresh and hilarious new look at his "bubbling, rib-tickling comedy" (The New York Times). Barefoot in the Park will play July 28 - September 2, 2018 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Tickets start at $30.00 and are on sale to the general public now. Previews run July 28 - August 1. Opening night is Thursday, August 2 at 8:00 p.m.

Fresh off a honeymoon at the Plaza Hotel, free-spirited Corie and her buttoned-down husband Paul find themselves struggling to adjust to married life in their run-down New York walk-up. Throw in a loopy meddling mother, an eccentric Bohemian upstairs neighbor, and a double date that goes disastrously wrong, and you've got the perfect recipe for laughter.

The cast includes Kerry Bishé as Corie Bratter ("Halt and Catch Fire," "Narcos," "Billions," Argo, Pygmalion on Broadway, My Name Is Rachel Corrie Off Broadway), Jere Burns as Victor Velasco (Broadway's After the Night and the Music and Hairspray, "Angie Tribeca," "I'm Dying Up Here," Incredibles 2), Mia Dillon as Mrs. Ethel Banks (original Broadway cast of Crimes of the Heart, Our Town with Paul Newman, The Miser, Hay Fever, The Cherry Orchard at La Jolla Playhouse), and Chris Lowell as Paul Bratter ("GLOW," "Private Practice," "Veronica Mars," The Help, Off Broadway's Jacuzzi); with Ed Hollingsworth as Deliveryman (the Globe's Guys and Dolls) and Jake Millgard as Telephone Repairman and Deliveryman (the Globe's Benny & Joon, Guys and Dolls, more).

The creative team includes Tobin Ost (Scenic Design), David Israel Reynoso (Costume Design), Amanda Zieve (Lighting Design), Lindsay Jones (Sound Design), Caparelliotis Casting (Casting), and Libby Unsworth (Production Stage Manager).

"Summertime at the Globe means laughter and fun, and no one delivers both better than Neil Simon," said Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein. "Barefoot in the Park is a sweet, funny play about how delightful it is to figure out how to build a life that balances life, work, and love. In Corie and Paul, the young newlywed couple at the center of the story, the play reflects to all of us our best selves and reminds us that sometimes we all need to kick off our shoes and dance in the grass. Neil Simon is a towering figure in the American theatre, and we are thrilled to continue the Globe's decades-long relationship with him. It's also a treat to have the great comic director Jessica Stone back in San Diego. She and her crack team have put together a summer ice cream cone of a show, and I can't wait to share it with our audience."

Neil Simon (Playwright) is widely regarded as one of the most successful, prolific, and performed playwrights in the world. His plays and musicals include Come Blow Your Horn; Little Me; Barefoot in the Park; The Odd Couple; Sweet Charity; The Star-Spangled Girl; Plaza Suite; Promises, Promises; Last of the Red Hot Lovers; The Gingerbread Lady; The Prisoner of Second Avenue; The Sunshine Boys; The Good Doctor; God's Favorite; California Suite; Chapter Two; They're Playing Our Song; I Ought to Be in Pictures; Fools; Brighton Beach Memoirs; Biloxi Blues; Broadway Bound; Rumors; Lost in Yonkers; Jake's Women; The Goodbye Girl; Laughter on the 23rd Floor; London Suite; Proposals; Hotel Suite; The Dinner Party; 45 Seconds from Broadway; Oscar and Felix; and Rose's Dilemma.

For television Mr. Simon has written for series, teleplays, and motion pictures including "Your Show of Shows," "Caesar's Hour," "The Phil Silvers Show," "The Garry Moore Show," Broadway Bound, and Jake's Women. His books include Rewrites: A Memoir, The Play Goes On: A Memoir, and four omnibus collections of his plays. He has received a Pulitzer Prize, a Golden Globe Award, three Tony Awards, and the Kennedy Center Honor, as well as dozens of other major award nominations.

          Comment on Pick of the Week #641 – Captain America #1 by Smasher      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I agree. The criteria for choosing a licensed property comic (creative team, story/concept) isn't much different from why some of us read Action Comics over Man of Steel. And those of us who read all of a particular licensed property or character - that speaks more to devotion and disposable income I suppose. The idea of unlikely pairings of licensed properties (didn't IDW put out a comic out based on the board game Clue last year?) got me thinking... what if a comic book publisher got the license to normal series like all the Charles/Burrows/Charles produced sitcoms (Cheers, Frasier, Wings) but put them in a superpowered universe? Sam Malone could still be an ex-pitcher for the Red Sox only he was forced into retirement when he developed super-vision. Cliff Clavin - some sort of copy of a copy of a copy of an original super-soldier experiment. I mean if the CW can makeover Riverdale into a noirish drama, seems like comics could do this. What do you think? What "normal" TV or movie property would you want to see get the superpowered comics treatment?

I really enjoyed your discussion on licensed comics and it got me thinking, aren't all comics essentially licensed products? I understand the difference between say a GI Joe comic and Prophet or Green Lantern and Planet of the Apes but I think most of us use the same criteria to pick what we read (and Josh I think you nailed it with "creator and product"). There's really no difference in Giannis Milagianis drawing Prophet or GI Joe or Gabe Hardman writing Green Lantern Year One or Planet of the Apes. Just a decision of what you want to spend your time and money on. I prefer Batman a lot more than Transformers (which I've heard is great) but I still choose what '"licensed" Batman products I read out of the half dozen or so that come out each month. Anyways, great show and thanks for getting me thinking and quite possibly now opening up my horizons to some books I might have previously passed up.

COMEDIAN Kavin Jay is taking his Kavin Jay: Anger Management show to eight towns across Malaysia. Presented by MTalent Asia in collaboration with TGV Cinemas, his tour is scheduled to kick off this August.

Kavin, with his unique blend of comedic timing, personal escapades and ruthless complaints, is one of only three Southeast Asian comics with their own Netflix special.

His Netflix Original Everybody Calm Down! began streaming in February.

“I have not done a solo tour before, and I think it is high time I did,” says the funnyman. “I love performing for Malaysians and if they can’t come to me, I’ll go to them.

“It is always so much fun to make my fellow Malaysians laugh, and especially after all that we have been through these past few months, I think a little entertainment is in order!”

Joining Kavin on the tour is Mister Potato’s Papi Zak, and up-and-coming comedian Brian Tan.

The Kavin Jay: Anger Management show will be an hour of all-new material filled with unbelievable stories of his life, including all the bad choices that taught him to be a better person, and an even better Malaysian.

Catch Kavin at selected TGV Cinemas – in 1 Utama, Petaling Jaya, on Aug 3; KLCC, Kuala Lumpur (Aug 4); Sunway Pyramid, Subang Jaya (Aug 5); Vivacity, Kuching (Aug 8); Miri, Sarawak (Aug 10); Kinta City, Ipoh (Aug 15); Gurney Paragon, Penang (Aug 16); Bukit Indah, Johor Baru (Aug 18); as well as a show at Rusty Blade Bar + Poolside Cafe in Labuan on Aug 11.

Tickets, priced from RM88, are available on the TGV Cinemas website, and on Peatix for the Labuan show.
