Today’s day was absolutely good time. Together with Tom Senet and his brother we went to Captain Tom’s recording studio to have a random jamming. We had the jam room reserved for 2 hours straight together with drums and all the equipment needed. Tom Senet plays on bass guitar, his brother on drums and I was supposed to be a singer.

We jammed quite a lot and it was pretty amazing to see both of brothers doing their double music blasts. I do admire their skills indeed. However, I found out that before I actually scream, I would need a major improvement of my vocal skills. I don’t know if it was for the fact that I had a sore throat and was tired or I simply need to work on it. Either way:

I think I might need quite a lot of practice with singing this summer. Perhaps, I will sign up for lessons. I have to improve before I start inventing stuff with Annik.exe for the other music project. That’s an imperative.

Icaro Doria – Brazilian Artist

Click here to enlarge the image. That’s what Ben Templesmith found out. Very good example of Brazillian social art. I love the idea itself from an instant. The site where Ben found it is called BrazilianArtists.net, and this particular profile is presenting different flags changed into statistical pieces of art by 25 years old Icaro Doria. On the site you can find other examples than American flag: it is available here.

Mass Violence

Copyright belongs to Encyclopedia!

Just encountered a really nice site called Online Encyclopedia of Mass Violence. It has not yet published any precise data about world-wide genocide violence but it promises to do so. Seems that will be a precious information about the scientific side of violence and extensive database. I encourage you to subscribe to its feed.

The Online Encyclopedia of Mass Violence provides chronological indexes, case studies, analytical contributions on socio-political violence in a given country, a glossary of the terms most often used in genocide studies as well as theoretical papers written by the most representative authors in the field.

Apart from the fact of finding the website I think it is very interesting that such sites start to emerge on the webspaces. Giant databases for varied purposes already exist and it seems that it is a growing trend to put more and more information into a virtual space. Perhaps it will give however unreliable but useful insight into some crucial issues.

I have to so I’m a bit curious because together with growing information storage, the public information available on the Internet about individuals will increase as well. And this in turn can lead into violations. We shall Observe.

Schindler’s List
Schindler’s List is a must-see Steven Spielberg film. It is one of the biggest masterpieces in Holocaust-describing cinematography. In all its horrifying content, it is just astonishingly beautiful, madly sad and above all almost unbelivable for the new generations. We are living in the times where the children aren’t thaught to remember shameful events in human history. They aren’t thaught to honour the vicitms of human mistakes. They aren’t thaught that this world was completely different a couple of decades ago. As a result it is something absolutely unimaginable for them that something of such scale and such impact could have happened.

For young generations, Holocaust is almost like a fairytale. Schindler’s List has a great visual potential within. Imagery that is shown there, is very graphic, very real, containing the truth about the past. Despite of the fact that I’m not the biggest fan of Steven Spielberg, I admire the work he did on Schindler’s List. It couldn’t be done better. It couldn’t be shown better.
