o papa deprimido . habemus papam . nanni moretti

nanni moretti quis fazer um filme sobre a depressão e o abandono na 3ª idade, assim de repente os papas são sempre idosos, com tendências depressivas, aliás, ser padre e não ser depressivo só é explicável pela religião e a fé, curiosamente o realizador italiano descura completamente essa parte, em nenhum momento do filme o cardeal eleito (um formidável veterano piccoli) se vira para Deus em busca de auxílio, vira-se para as pessoas que encontra no caminho, a ideia de uma igreja voltada para os seu súbditos, aberta à mudança, ou simplesmente que Deus não existe nos paramentos e nos rituais da instituição, mas sim em cada um de nós como gestos de boa vontade, gosto dessa ideia base do filme, a depressão em pessoas de idade avançada é quase sempre assunto que não se discute, acha-se que os "velhos" não têm idade para sofrer de dores do passado, como a ausência da mãe, o isolamento, o abandono, a sensação de inutilidade... aqui moretti não pôde contornar o cliché do protesto contra o catolicismo enraizado, que continua suspenso nos seus propósitos dogmas, eu preferia que o filme embarca-se na ideia final de uma responsabilidade repartida por todos e não no abandono de alguém que percebe não ser capaz de cumprir uma missão, que vira as costas aos fiéis, virando costas a Deus???
De resto nanni moretti armado em roberto benigni com muito menos piada era completamente dispensável, o filme perde força quando se tenta "comedizar" a reunião de cardeais, e torná-lo em interlúdios de humor, uma espécie de lar de idosos parvinhos que recebem a visita do senhor que lhes vai ensinar a mexer no computador (hello???).
Um filme que faz uma crítica à igreja sem ser fundamentalista nem despropositado, mas que deixa um desconsolo, que não responde no entanto às dúvidas das pessoas, se um papa vira as costas aos fiéis, é porque a sua figura não faz sentido... e isso é completamente utópico, mesmo se pensarmos em religiões, as anarquias não resultam... excepto se todos os cardeiais fossem de facto só os velhinhos simpáticos que nanni moretti retrata, mas não, são seres-humanos e pecam muito, como aliás todos nós.


really, i'm not seeing anyone in a wheelchair trying to get a couch to sleep in some weird foreign city...
"let's hang out tonight, whoops, we dont have enough space left on the trunk... SORRY mate, why dont you stay and watch some BBC national geographic program about this city... and y'all see ya later... COOOOOOOOOOOOME ON!!!!

ninguém tem medo de baladas

mas esta capa e este título eram capazes de fazer corar o lobo mau de vergonha...
BAD BAD BAD oh my, this is probably one of the 10 worst cover albums and titles in the history of portuguese music, i would say...

this is what happened after

so who is this Charlotte Perkins Gilman, if only TV and cinema could often be this good

according to wikipedia

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (July 3, 1860 – August 17, 1935) was a prominent American sociologistnovelistwriter of short storiespoetry, andnonfiction, and a lecturer for social reform. She was a utopian feminist during a time when her accomplishments were exceptional for women, and she served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle. Her best remembered work today is her semi-autobiographical short story The Yellow Wallpaper which she wrote after a severe bout of postpartum psychosis.

Feminist interpretation "The Yellow Wallpaper"

This story has been interpreted by feminist critics as a condemnation of the androcentric hegemony of 19th century medical profession.[5] The narrator's suggestions about her recuperation (that she should work instead of rest, that she should engage with society instead of remaining isolated, that she should attempt to be a mother instead of being separated entirely from her child, et cetera) are dismissed out of hand using language that stereotypes her as irrational and, therefore, unqualified to offer ideas about her own condition. The feminist interpretation has drawn on the concept of the "domestic sphere" that women were held in during this period.[6]
Modern feminist critics focus on the degree of triumph at the end of the story: while some may claim that the narrator slipped into insanity, others see the ending as a female's assertion of freedom in a marriage in which she felt trapped.[7] The emphasis on reading and writing as gendered practices also illustrated the importance of the wallpaper. If the narrator were allowed neither to write in her journal nor to read, she would begin to "read" the wallpaper until she found that for which she was looking—an escape. Through seeing the women in the wallpaper, the narrator realizes that she could not live her life locked up behind bars. At the end of the story, as her husband John lies on the floor unconscious, she crawls over him, symbolically rising over him. This is interpreted as a victory over her husband, albeit she lost her sanity in the process.

hysterical addiction

-Haven't you read The Yellow Wallpaper
by Charlotte Perkins Gilman?


-Her husband, a doctor, locks her away in the upstairs bedroom
to recuperate from a slight hysterical tendency.
Staring at the yellow wallpaper
day after day... she begins to hallucinate that there are women
trapped in the pattern.
Half-mad, she scrapes off the wallpaper to set the women free.
When her husband finally unlocks the door, he finds her circling the room,
touching the wallpaper, whispering, "I finally
got out of here."
Since the beginning of time, men find excuses to lock women away.
They make up diseases, like hysteria.
Do you know where that word comes from?


-The Greek word for uterus.
In the second century, they thought it was caused by sexual deprivation.
And the only possible cure was hysterical paroxysm.
Doctors... would masturbate women in their office,
and call it medicine.

-I had no idea.

-It was a hundred years ago, but we're no better off today.
Men are still inventing ways to drive women over the edge.

apresentação mais ou menos oficial do novo álbum da Adriana Calcanhotto

Another Williams Renaissance Coming?

Don't forget the seven Grand Slams or the No.1 ranking she has held, and don't forget the last time she was playing injury and illness free, she was No.2. Like her sister, Venus Williams is a legend and can get right back on the saddle at any moment - and it seems like that moment is right around the corner.
After an impressive first half of 2010, which included a 15-match winning streak that brought her WTA titles at Dubai and Acapulco and to the finals of Miami, Williams went into Wimbledon ranked No.2, trailing only her sister. But a slew of injuries - knee, hip, abdominal, and more recently illness in the form of Sjögren's Syndrome - have limited her to just five events in the last 21 months, and she ended 2011 down at No.103, her first non-Top 100 finish in 15 years.
Williams has been reflecting on her career, her struggles and her comeback in recent weeks. Among her recent appearances was serving as the main guest at the ASPIRE4SPORT sports congress and exhibition in Doha, Qatar, the site of one of her greatest career conquests, the WTA Championships title in 2008.
After announcing Doha as her favorite tournament venue, Williams was asked about her early years in the sport. "I turned pro at the age of 14, which actually changed a lot in my life," she said. "It helped me go to upper high school and practice tennis as well. It was so good to have that balance. I always believed in myself that I was a good tennis player and had a lot of desire."
Williams has always combined a successful career on the court with successful business ventures off the court. "There are so many things that came to me because of the sport, so many lessons," the 31-year-old said. "How to adjust your gameplan, how to quickly adjust if you're losing, how to change marketing and approaches, and how you can be prepared better and come back stronger."
She was also asked about her sister. "It's very challenging to play with Serena because there's so much respect when you play against her. Her achievements over the last few years have been monumental. Even with the health issues she has had, she continues to be great. She's still one of the best players."
In addition to the Q&A session, Williams' Doha activities included a gala dinner alongside fellow sports legends such as Nadia Comaneci and Carl Lewis, as well as a kids clinic and an autograph session for the Qatar Tennis Federation.
Williams has recovered from the aforementioned injuries but is now working on overcoming Sjögren's Syndrome, speaking about that struggle to La Gazzetta.
"I've undergone various medical tests and also studied my diet in detail, to try to get a better understanding of which foods can help with the symptoms," she told the Italian newspaper. "I was the person who always ate their steak first and their salad second - I have totally changed my diet and filled it with lots of vegetables now. I've also kept myself in good physical shape, both in the gym and on the tennis court. I'm really proud of the progress I've been making."
In the next few weeks, Williams is scheduled to play exhibitions in Colombia and Italy, with a full comeback to the WTA starting right at the start of 2012.
"My first tournament will be in Auckland. I've never been to that city before but I've heard great things about the tournament. After so many years I don't get to visit a lot of new places, so that makes it more interesting for me.
"My goal is to play a full schedule next year. It will take hard work, but I'm no stranger to hard work. I plan on getting right back to where I was, at the top of the rankings in singles and doubles, sometime within the next 12 months.
"I love tennis. The racquet feels right in my hand."

isnt she great Christine Estabrook

she's got that look from a typical americana suburbian neighbour, but in fact, her presence always reminds that secrets are meant to be kept, sometimes secrets should never be told, and most of the times, dont trust her, she's got that vibe of sweet middle age lady with a nose for everything and psicho-maniac persona inside her, like a truly society product, ohhh she's just an amazing actress

look and see


i dont eat i dont sleep

porque é que o pessoal que vai ser pai, põe fotos das mulheres grávidas com a barrigona à mostra no perfil do facebook

completamente desnecessário... a sério, já nos basta levar com as 350.000 fotos do nascimento, do baptismo, do 1º aniversário, da primeira fralda suja, do primeiro vómito, do primeiro arroto, do primeiro peido, da primeira palavra, da segunda palavra, da primeira vez que batem nos pais... o que não queremos ver é barrigas de grávidas, não é bonito, é nojento até, só serve para alimentar taradices sexuais de meia-dúzia de pervertidos ou então do tipo "viram como eu sou macho e emprenhei a minha gaja"...

"OH NO, i dont wanna see this"

-barack obama aparece em duas das seis fotos a beijar dois homens diferentes, o presidente da venezuela e da china respectivamente.
-são representadas as religiões católica e muçulmana numa das fotos, e é a única que faz menção a religiões.
-os muçulmanos condenam relações entre pessoas do mesmo sexo, a religião católica mantém-se indiferente à questão da homossexualidade, não é permitido o casamento nem a prática sexual aos sacerdotes.
-das 6 fotos, 5 são relativas a questões político-económicas entre os protagonistas.
-dos 11 protagonistas 3 (3/11) presidem ou lideram regimes comunistas, 27%.
-o beijo é considerado um gesto de afeição entre duas pessoas, porém quando dado na boca pode representar desejo sexual, ainda e segundo a bíblia pode representar traição, Jesus foi traído com um beijo.
-a coreia do norte considera a homossexualidade uma doença, em alguns estados americanos não existe qualquer tipo de lei que salvaguarde o direito de orientação sexual diversa de um indivíduo caso seja necessário, na venezuela também não existe legislação que proteja os direitos dos homossexuais contra qualquer forma de descriminação.
-ao longo da história, todos os países representados nas fotos estiveram envolvidos em guerras que assassinaram barbaramente milhões de inocentes.
