Movie: Earthlings

Nobel Prize winner Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-1991) in his bestseller "Enemies, a love story" wrote: 

As often has Herman had witnessed the salughter of animals or fish, he always had the same thought: In their behavior toward creatures, all men were Nazis. The smugness with which man could do with other species as he pleased exemply the most extreme racist theories: 
"The principle that might is right."

Well, I´m here again, with bowl of popcorn, with smell of burning candles, listening complete Kingdom of Heaven soundtrack. Yeah, that´s relax. Just lying in bed with my sweet guinea pig, wondering if there´s something nicer in my life. I have holyday so there are no problems with school, I have my beloved pet near me, I can kiss her, stroke her...

This is her - Hryzka, the reason why I live :)


Just one look it this face and my life gets sense :)




This is absolutely the best photo I´ve ever done.



This is the life...

Like I said, I love art in its every way, I love music, I love movies, I love paintings, I love fashion, I love culture, I love design, I love architecture, I love dance, I love photos..... God, it can´t be written, everything what I love about art. 
But what I haven´t said is that I love nature, and the most I love ANIMALS. I love their innocence. I love them all. From little ant to the biggest whales, I love them all. Because they deserve it. They live with us, they work for us, they die for us, they let us hurt them, they let us be stronger and they let us rule them and whole planet, no matter that this world is their like it´s ours. 
Just because animals don´t have the same desires or thinking like us or just because they are not that inteligent as we are, it doesn´t mean that they have no senses, it doesn´t mean that they don´t feel pain, it doesn´t mean that they are stupid and they don´t deserve to live their lifes. 
I hate people, I hate us, I hate myself because of what we have done to them. And we still do that to them. They were here in battles, in scientific researchs, in medicine, in the times of peace, in wars. They were here for us, they died, they suffered, that we might live better.
They die and we have what we need - food. I don´t have any problem with eating meat, killing animals for food, that´s natural, we couldn´t live without it. But because it´s important for our live, we should have respect for them, because thanks to them we live. They deserve better life than life in cages with another thousand animals on little piece of land with them. Try to image you, with living space smaler than sheet of paper in format A4 and then die, hanging on leg, upside down cutted through the neck. 
Animals deserve to feel fresh air in their lungs, green grass under their foots and freedom.
But there is movie, for the truth it´s document, which explains everything. I tried to make a little trailer for you.

Earthlings


This documentary is from 2005 and the narrator is Joaquin Phoenix, actor, who you can know from Gladiator. From my trailer, it can seem like movie just about life´s truths, but it´s not. Actually, that is just the introduction. Core of movie is builded by shoots from hidden camera from the places where this crimes are happening every day. Warning: There you will see the brutal but realistic truth. It´s for people, who don´t close their eyes before the truth. If you want to see official trailer or if you want to know more about the movie visit the official site
After watchinhg the movie, you will understand everything. You will understand that...

this must be stopped!

Christmas is knocking on the door...

"...well, then just open it."


this is my favourite slovak carol :D "Just for the athmosfere" :P

Hey, hey!! :D I´m back with great mood :) There are many reasons of my happiness. Christmas is coming, it finally started to snow here, and... we had great Christmas party in class. Well, we can call it "party" but it wasn´t anything more, than meeting after school in class with all classmates and with our class teacher. Carols, kofola, pizza and gifts. Everyone bought one gift, the all were gathered on the desk, every of them got a number and then, we received some number and gift of the number :) It´s nice, because everyone got something....... ehm, I got a tea, but the present from me wasn´t anything worldshaking - puzzle with girlish motive. And try to guess, who got it.... :P
   There´s just one sad thing about it - I forgot to take photo of our beautiful class. In fact, it has never been so beautiful as in this evening :) Lavishly decorated Christmas tree, smell of mandarins, bright and sparkling decors on walls and windows... we did it as best as we could. And I think, we handled it.
   Well, it was stunning farewell with my colleagues and teacher before threeweeks long holiday. At the end, big hugsgiving and goodbye. I´ll see you at 6.1. :D May God bless you...



Jéé, pizza for me! Juicy Bolognese pizza :P


Dessert - "Apple. Ice-cream Apple" :D


And now, time for PRESENTS!!


God, I couldn´t forget for this box!! It may be 70 years old! Hehe, something from Slovak culture :D

Alfons Mucha - Zodiac


  
   It´s more than 10 days, when I published the last article :D Well, I´m busy because of chrismas presents for my family and friends. Like nearly every year, it is my own work. After 6th january all project will be here :D
   So, for today, I chose my favourite poster by Alfons Mucha. I always like ornamental posters with positive colors, complicated background. The woman on the picture is beautiful. With pale skin, long hair, in smart gown.  But the most impressive things on the picture are jewellery. I mean, just look at them! Bright necklace and shiny crown. She´s like a princess born of sunlight. The poster is getting rays into this time of winter´s fog. But thanks to it, this season has some much magic and mystery in the air :D


This is the original, but this article couldn´t be written by me without my performing :D


Cut the detail, apply effects, add sunshine and voilá!


My favourite details - the necklace and the crown

When I play with camera....


Sometimes, I´m taking photos, just because I´m bored. Taking photos is not my favourite activity, I prefer observing objects live, but, you know, there are times, when I must play with camera. And there, in my life, are so many things worth to have a photo.

Free school lesson, long time of waiting for bus or boring visits in house of family friends. Every time is the best time for some photos.

But what I love the most, is editing photos. Cutting, sticking, and then changing the colors and contrast, adding effects...
...to change the soul of the photography...

Arabic Culture: Bittersweet by Rumi

If...
if you don't have enough madness in you
go and rehabilitate yourself...

if you've lost a hundred times the chess game of this life
be prepared to lose one more...



Have you ever read something, which gave a new dimension to your life? Some book, or poem? I ´m not some great fan of literature, but there is someone who made me watch the poems in different way - Maestro Rumi.


Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Balkhī
1207 - 1273 A.D.
better known as Rumi, was a Persian poet and also a founder of sufism
and my favourite poet in the world!



I swear, I will give time for sufism, because, it is one very interesting part of arabic culture :D
Well, everyone has some favourites which are made by their favourite author and this is mine - Bittersweet


Bittersweet by Rumi

In my hallucination
I saw my Beloved´s flower garden
In my vertigo
In my dizziness
In my drunken haze
Whirling and dancig like a spinning wheel

I saw myslef as the Source of Existence
I was there in the beginning
And I was the spirit of love
now, I am sober
There is only the hangover
And a memory of love
And only the sorrow

I yearn for happiness
I ask for help
I want mercy

And my love says:
"Look at me and hear me,
because I am here, just for that."

I am your moon and your moonlight, too
I am your flower garden and your water, too
I have come all this way, eager for you
Without shoes or shawl

I want you to laugh
To kill all your worries
To love you
To nourish you

Oh sweet bitterness

I will soothe you and heal you
I will bring you roses

I, too have been covered with thorns ....

And, like a lightning from the clear heaven, I found this fan video :D Connection of Kingdom of Heaven and Rumi´s poem!!!! I´ve never seen better fanvideo than this! Enjoy....



It is voice of Madonna, she has sung this one poem of Rumi for CD with Rumi´s poems :D
I must say, the clips from movie, music, and poet made me cry for the first time I saw it...and then second time....and third.... :P Kingdom of Heaven is something very very special, very mystic, very emotional for me. I´m fanatic and I don´t have enought strenght to fight it.

Movie: Kingdom of Heaven (I.)

So....this amazing date 11.11.2011 needs something special for this blog :D I said amazing, because my favourite number is 1, not because i belive in thet mysteries with numbers, dates.....I don´t really understand it :P But I must say, it was funny to celebrate day such as this :D In the middle of lesson, exactly at 11:11, mobiles in our classe started to ring! We were laughting and teacher was just wacthing us with obtuse face :) Biology......lesson full of surprises.

Well, it´s there... something, what changed all my life!

Dámy a páni.....
Ladies and Gentlemen....
Mesdames et Messieurs.....

KINGDOM OF HEAVEN


the first official trailer

The kay facts: Directed by Ridley Scott, Written by Wiliam Monahan, Year: 2005, Distribuded by 20th Century Fox, Country: United Kingdom, Spain, Germany

Cast: Orlando Bloom - Balian of Ibelin, Eva Green - Sibylla, Jeremy Irons - Tiberias, Liam Neeson - Godfrey of Ibelin, Edward Northon - King Baldwin IV., David Thelwis - Hospitaler,  Marton Scokas - Guy de Lusignan, Ghassan Massoud - Saladin, Bernard Gleeson - Rainold de Chatillons, Alexander Siddig - Imad, Velibor Topic - Almaric

Story line: (I´m not good in reviews, I can´t write objective review, because I have too strong feelings to this movie. So this will be, how I see it :D) ......Once upon a time, there was land, called Holy Land. It still exist,  it isn´t destroyed by monsoon or something like that. For us, it is piece of land, but in that time of medieval, for europans, it was fabulous country, a "New World", kingdom of conscience. But this isn´t the best time, to talk about medieval mind of the world, the nature, the fate and the religion. I´m sure, there will be place for it once. Well, we have the atmosphere, I can start talk the about story.
It all starts in 1184 in France, when old knight Godfrey, the baron of Ibelin, arrives to his born-country,from Levanta, with his loyal friend Hospitaler (i´m sure, he didn´t have name Hospitaler, but in the movie, they didn´t call him by name and everywhere he gets name Hospitaler), to find his son. For the truth, the son is bastard, because Godfrey wasn´t husband of his mother. I´m not going to describe it now, because, it is about feudalistic rights of lords, and that is little complicated :) Back to the France in 1184. Godfrey finds his son in blacksmith forge. It is Balian, destroyed by the loss of his wife and child. In director cut, you can see more story of his confinement and past. I will try to get this two, official and director, versions together :) Well, Godfrey tries to convince Balian, to leave with him to Holy Land, and start again. But Balian refuse, you can see in that face, he is completely lost. There is also very interesting character of priest, Balians step brother, who was played by Michael Sheen. This character is great picture for expression the dastardly face of many christian priests in Middle ages. He hurt Balian everytime. He tries to convince Balian again, takling about forgiveness, and I still don´t understand, why was he doing it. He had to know, that as a son of baron in Jerusalem, Balian will live better, much better than as blacksmith in France......

Make-up design: Color-Cycling



This is my make-up desing for November :D Colorful and bright like silky rainbow, whitch we are not going to see for long time.
Circle- without beginning, without end. The symbol of eternity and infinity.

 Nothing takes forever, not even our lives. But we can won the death by our acts. Every person lets something here. At least the memories in head of his old friend. Every person wants to let here memory of himself. To show, that he weren´t unnecessary for this world.
Yes, just like I do.....by my work. Perhaps, that is the real reason, why I´m still tring to be better and better. Not to enjoy, what I can do with my hands now, but to show, that I´m worth to be call "special" for what am doing, because, i will always bring something new. Something, what is better, than what I´ve done before. Maybe, that is the reason, why I´m trying to do absolutely anything to make my dream come true. To chenge the world a little. You can see, there is much to change...

Well, back to my project :D Like I said, it is very cheerful, thanks to the colors, I´ve used :D It doesn´t look like that, but it took me 3 hours to make it :D And two days, to find the idea in my head :) Hehe, I´m too big stickler :PP

I haven´t tryied it on my face, but it can be very VERY interesting :D And funny! :)

Playing with the details :D





I must say, I don´t consider black as a happy color, but I so so love this picture and I´m so proud of it! :)

Alfons Mucha - Repos de la Nuit


It isn´t that long time, when I celebrated my 15th birthday (02.10.) with my friends. I still remember that beautiful moment, when all of them gave me big smile and said: "Všetko najlepšie!!!" I´m so happy to have friends like this :D And why am I writing this? Just to make the atmosphere :D And to show, that gifts aren´t everything :D But if you get some gift, it makes you so so happy :D

This is one of gifts from my friends :D



My friends know, i like Alfons Mucha and his work :D I didn´t know, that they know it, but they do and it was beautiful surprise :)

Henna design: Fleur Arabe


One of many projects made just for my drawer :D But, I made my decision - it´s worth to be here :D
I love designing henna, it doesn´t bother me, that not every drawing I´ll use for my hand (i´m southpaw, so I can draw only on my right hand :) ). I design henna during lessons, in the time of breaks or when should I study for school.

So this is one of many my designs. I made it by pencil, and this is, how it looks, when is person like me bored, one rainy night, in Switzerland. Inspirative country it is :D

And this is result, when I´m playing :D




An this is, how it looks on my hand :D Yes, quite different, than design, but i like this variation more :D





Another playing :D
