A print ad for Paco Rabanne comes to mind by Ogilvy & Mather.
Here goes:


“You snore.”
“And you steal all the covers. What time did you leave?”
“Six-thirty. You looked like a toppled Greek statue lying there. Only some tourist had swiped your fig leaf. I was tempted to wake you up.”
“I miss you already.”
“You’re going to miss something else. Have you looked in the bathroom yet?”
“I took your bottle of Paco Rabanne cologne.”
“What on earth are you going to do with it…give it to a secret lover you’ve got stashed away in San Francisco?”
“I’m going to take some and rub it on my body when I go to bed tonight. And then I’m going to remember every little thing about you…and last night.”
“Do you know what your voice is doing to me?
“You aren’t the only one with imagination. I’ve got to go; they’re calling my flight. I’ll be back Tuesday. Can I bring you anything?”
“My Paco Rabanne. And a fig leaf.”

A broader audience may have witnessed any of the Star Wars tone poems, recollected elsewhere on this blog. And more recently WordPress’ claim: Coding is poetry.

Today’s poetry not only takes place in coding but every so often on twitter and most certainly on a tumblr called “this isn’t happiness™”.

You’ll find more serious poetry in commercial arts than in fine arts, and you stand a good chance that the two paths will propably never cross.

Pacific Crest Trail




Hipster music virtuoso Sufjan Stevens has taken much out of the complexity of his early work, which made everyone buy a banjo and increased sales of the forgotten instrument. The new songs remind me of the way Elliott Smith used to sing. Not the singing exactly but how it is dramatised.






Well, my siblings and I were raised like tenants, to be honest. There was a total absence of intimacy in my family, though there was still a great deal of camaraderie among the kids. Things were set up almost like a business, and it had to be managed that way because we were really poor, and there were a lot of mouths to feed. My dad and stepmom never had real, consistent careers. They were just always making ends meet. There were rules and regulations and chores, but very little time for casual enjoyment of each other’s company. I don’t know if that sort of ideological approach to parenting was intentional, but it’s a little ironic that my closest fatherly companion is Lowell, a man who has no blood relation.

Mississippi Fred McDowellFriedrich Nietzsche, Roling Stones, Fred McDowell.



It’s said that self-employed and business people are always on the move. Friedrich Nietzsche has coined the happy phrase:



“Don’t trust a thought you have while being seated”

Almost two thirds of the German enterprises feel to be driven to transform rather than transforming on their own (German language source). No surprise, the working populations is sitting in front of their displays all day long for most part of their life time.

Women are in the fast lane, since they are always in motion with their children. They drive SUVs and use mobile devices.

“Borgen” is kinetic and lean, Stephen Benedict Dyson describes the success of the Danish TV-Series, measured against English-language shows about politics,



understand the category conventions – which to embrace and which to cast aside

Principle № 3 of 8 principles to work to.



At your fullest convenience

For a life time you witnessed the Rolling Stones demonstrate, how the cobbler sticks to his lasts, and how the fact was never clouded, that their product’s DNA is unmistakably R&B and Blues. The song by “Mississippi” Fred McDowell got pressed into the vinyl of their Sticky Fingers album.

In the absence of a new aesthetic (NA), it’s good to see Spandau Ballet with no identity crisis. Fantastic really. Helen Mirren is beautiful to look at and Tony Hadley moves like an actor playing a mafioso. No?











Well maintained, well mannered, beautiful to look at are Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl, aside from Tony Hadley, at age 54 no clown on stage.
