I read an article today about a film by Italian filmmakers, Alberto Grifi and Massimo Sarchielli, Anna (1975). The film revolves around a sixteen-year-old girl, homeless, on drugs, and eight months pregnant. Anna is hardcore. The filmmaker, Sarchielli, like a Warholian, takes her in as an interest as a film subject. Anna, having nothing, uses him for a place to stay, and Sarchielli uses her as object/subject. Its easy to extrapolate, “well, it’s a use/use exchange”, but I can’t seem…
Two weeks ago I met up with our very own site creator, Vincent D, and we took a visit to Tate Modern. To be fair, we wandered in and out of several galleries over the course of my ten day visit and it was an experience nothing less than extraordinary. The experience was, and is still, so visceral that I’m finding it difficult to write about in my usual art historical fashion. To participate in an analysis of the art I saw seems far too distant and disjointed from the experience itself.…
I am very much a product of contemporary culture. I’ve never been a part of a large group of friends, rather my circle of friends has always remained small and intimate. Part of this I feel is that I’m either all in or all out. I find it exhausting, and hugely draining and depressing, to maintain relationships without a strong sense of depth. The thought of having to maintain a large number of relationships without losing a sense of authenticity makes my head spin. I am not sure this is very…
I am reciting this news story with both some happiness that the truth has started to come out and a bitter taste in my mouth for the fact it had to come out after a minute media witch hunt.
This is the story of the so called disappearance of Ashya King from Southampton General Hospital, England on Thursday the 28th of August 2014 that sparked an international search for the boy and his family.
Ashya is a 5 year old boy who has a…
My very first blog for insomnia life as a guest blogger, what will I blog about? Who knows?
To blog or not to blog is that the question?
I don’t know but as this is a new role I am fulfilling I am looking to set a standard for myself as a writer and blogger and establish a rhythm for my content and delivery thereof.
A tiny bit about me and then let’s move on. I am a sales and marketing manager in a metrology company by day. I am an avid online marketer by trade. As well…
a ghost lingers in the void
even sleep isn’t safe
it finds its way into my dreams
the face i haven’t seen in years
haunting my subconscious mind
i wake to phantom heartbeats and an
inevitable ache in the space that once
burst and overflowed with love
This feeling isn't new.. but I've never been able to place it, or name it before.
It's this tangled mess of anxiety, anger, frustration, disappointment, jealousy & sadness.
It gives me this internal chill... like when you get a shiver that passes through your body..
Except this one emanates from deep, deep inside..
I feel so fucking cold inside it almost burns.
I almost forgot what it is to write
To sit and put pen to paper
The feelings you get as the words start to form before you
I had become somewhat distracted
Mislaid my mojo and my pen
Life has a habit of creeping up on you
Of covering up your dreams in a shower of shit
And if you are not careful
You forget your way and become bogged down in the mire
And you ask yourself
Am I really still a…
I want to walk in your shadow
And bathe in your very light
I want to rummage around in
You’re very soul tonight
To eat at your table, and,
Talk about our day
To expand my very mind
By the wonderful things you say
I dance at the very thought
And taste you on my tongue
And I feel
That when I am with you
Although my body grows older
My mind is growing young
You listen to my…
