At Eternity’s Gate

Posted in Art, Poetry, Writing by netscheri on August 27, 2007

Van Gogh If I should cast off this tattered coat,
And go free into the mighty sky;
If I should find nothing there
But a vast blue,
Echoless, ignorant-
What then?

God lay dead in heaven;
Angels sang the hymn of the end;
Purple winds went moaning,
Their wings drip-dripping
With blood
That fell upon the earth.
It, groaning thing,
Turned black and sank.
Then from the far caverns
Of dead sins
Came monsters, livid with desire.

They fought,/Wrangled over the world,/A morsel./But of all sadness this was sad-/A woman’s arms tried to shield/The head of a sleeping man/From the jaws of the final beast.

W.B. Yeats

Posted in Thoughts, Writing by netscheri on August 25, 2007

“A pity beyond all telling is hid in the heart of love.”“The innocent and the beautiful have no enemy but time.”

I find that there is something almost unbearably sad about those two lines.

“Accursed who brings to light of day the writings I have cast away.”

And the next one I just find funny.

Isn’t this devotion?

About how Chinese fans translated Hary Potter and the Deathly Hallows (which I still have not read): Chinese wizards work their magic with Harry Potter

“They worked in teams and round the clock, eating nothing but instant noodles, according to messages they left on the Internet.”

Baby Burger

I found this picture on the net a while ago while searching something now forgotten (I think it was ‘burger suit’?). I thought it was funny and quirky that such a costume existed. Completely light, innocent emotions, as you can see.

Then recently, I was told about a baby devouring cannibal who had achieved fame-through-infamy, and now I see this picture with a completely new meaning.

Henceforth, I shall refer to people only by their initials, with the single initial, such as ‘F.’ or ‘L.’, being the preferred form of address.

It shall be my way of embracing the bohemian, the cosmopolitan, and my particular mood at this moment. An air of supposed mystery, and intimacy, where names are no longer necessary and an individual’s complete identity can be wholly captured in one letter.

 Perhaps I have been inspired by the examples of V and K.M.? It stands that in this particular area, as with much else, detail is important, as well as a certain degree of meticulousness. The placing of a period or a full stop after the initial is important. In the example of V, it is omitted, as V is the only name by which V is known, rather than a shortening or a contraction of a full name. K.M., on the other hand, stands for Katherine Mansfield, and thus, the full stops are necessary.

But for now, that is all I have to add, so, fare well and good night.

‘My new mobile is lumbered with a bewildering array of unnecessary features aimed at idiots’

I find this article-review hilarious. From The Guardian –

It is astounding how quickly you get used to technological change. For instance, within the space of 18 months, I have gone from regarding wireless broadband as an outlandish novelty to considering it my God-given right. Cables appal me – they belong to the stone age – alongside electric typewriters, fax machines, video recorders, pagers and the plough.

But there is one device I just can’t get comfortable with – my mobile phone. I’m not some medieval yeoman, infuriated by mobiles full stop. Just this particular model. The trouble started the afternoon someone from Orange rang me up to say, “Hey, valued customer – do you want a free phone?” At first I wasn’t interested, but he went on and on about how popular and great the Samsung E900 was, then promised me free texts at weekends for life if I said yes. So I gave in.
