Between fire and darkness, plainly doomed humanity


The Human Species is Doomed
RYAN GOSLING — HARRISON FORD — BLADE RUNNER 2049–2017



To revive an old film that was considered in 1982 when it came out and in later years, and has been since and still is, as a classic representing some cultural or even civilizational achievement is always a difficult task and here again, a lot of imagination and skill, if not art, has to be found and developed, though the result is slightly obscure and entangled into complicated intertwined circumstances that make facts fuzzy more than clearly explained. […]

LA GRÈVE DES PRIVILÈGES



Il est urgent que les clients de la SNCF, de plus les clients réguliers, abonnés ou avec carte de fidélité quelle qu'elle soit soient compensés ou dédommagés commercialement du service commercial non rendu, ou bien nous changerons de crémerie. Il y a le choix aujourd'hui et encore plus d'ici un an ou deux. Quand les trains seront vides les conducteurs, les contrôleurs et les aiguilleurs seront inutiles, sauf les aiguilleurs qui devront assurer le service pour les trains autres que les trains SNCF

Music, poetry and thrilling love story


TRAFALGAR SQUARE
UNDER THE PAWS OF THE LIONS

(ILYA & VANYA)

Jacques COULARDEAU

IN LIFE THE WORST CHALLENGE IS A LOVING DIVORCE


Two strange birds one day meet along an avenue in a big city, two strange birds of a feather, Ilya and Vanya. An explosion of red relish shakes their minds while an implosion of blue bliss enthuses their hearts. Attraction, appeal, love and fear entrap their souls and throw them down into a dark adventure in some no man’s land, some wasteland they have never visited and they have kept fallow, plowed but unseeded, for an unspecified future that has so far never come.
Fate today resolves to generously fertilize and sow these territories of theirs with the fire of sanguine love and the lure of supine fear. Their love is so powerful that they hate it. Their fear is so compelling and consuming, overwhelming and uncontrollable that pain and torment stoop down and conquer their blood and flesh.
Till the day everything gets into Sour Distressfulness and Miserable Sweetness . . .
         

Twenty-nine songs dedicated to the strutting bard from Stratford on Avon. Alas without the music available though on Amazon: ASIN: B00J0B57BC

 

Is the Smithsonian Institute naive?


The End of a Genocidal Trail
https://medium.com/@JacquesCoulardeau/the-end-of-a-genocidal-trail-3abb37f522ca
CÉCILE R. GANTEAUME — OFFICIALLY INDIAN, SYMBOLS THAT DEFINE THE UNITED STATES — 2017


Do not ask this book what it does not plan on doing.
It does not plan in any way to show the Indian genocide and what it meant for the USA. It does not plan to show the survival of the remnants of all Native Americans in squalid conditions of oppression, segregation and rejection that followed the final defeat of these men and women and their being kicked out of any fertile land after the infamous Trail of Tears that has become sacred to anyone who condemns this genocide.

Le SIDA, arme suprême des intégristes


Un crime voulu et vaincu

ROBIN CAMPILLO — 120 BATTEMENTS DE CŒUR — 2017



Nous qui avons survécu cette épidémie, nous nous retrouverons dans ce film comme si c’était hier. Nous avons survécu que ce soit grâce aux traitements qui progressivement se sont mis en place, ou bien parce que nous sommes restés séronégatif, et certains de nous ne savons même pas pourquoi, et il est temps de se pencher vers ces années 1980 où tout a basculé de l’amour et de la promiscuité absolue à la peur, la panique, l’abstinence, la prévention, les précautions, et les visites nombreuses aux hôpitaux et aux cimetières.

Think about that and devise your own procedure, then run for the next elections and become popular, but beware not to end up like Zuckerberg, the Sugar Moutain. Pleasing people can have a downside.

Necrophilia in the Midwest


A Billboard Triad
THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI — 2017


A very sad and sinister story in a small town in Missouri, bleak indeed. The drama of a mother whose daughter was raped while dying and then carbonized, burnt down to ashes or a pile of incinerated bones. […]



 

Enter in the car and step into the drama


King’s Buick 8 and a lot more soon
STEPHEN KING — FROM A BUICK 8–2002


This book is about a car as is written on the cover, but in fact, it is not about a car at all, since it is not a car, though we do not know what it is and we will never know anyway. What is important though in Stephen King’s work is the use of cars in many novels and short stories. In fact, we could find a car, more or less benevolent or malevolent, in most stories, most novels. […]
