Every now and then, I run into something interesting that isn’t exactly brand new. Why hadn’t I noticed it before? I have no idea; I guess it’s because it’s not possible to notice everything, and there really are a lot of interesting/weird/unusual/bizarre things out there.
So, one example would be this video by Hooverphonic. I love the music, and the story of the video is… Funny would be one way to describe it; bizarre would be another. Take a look and see, and enjoy the music!
The other example would be Madonna’s Ghosttown. Not exactly an unknown artist, is she? And yet, I’ve discovered the video about… Less than a month ago, even though it showed up in April last year? Something like that. I love the visuals, stylish and post-apocalyptic at the same time (of course, that also makes it a bit silly, and then it’s combined with a serious message).
I hope you’ll enjoy both videos!
Christmas lights all over the city the day after Halloween. Christmas trees and decorations in every supermarket the day after Halloween, too. Christmas-themed toys and products everywhere, and it’s still November.
It used to be something that we saw on Facebook, something that happened in America, but not here. Sure, Christmas decorations would appear a bit too early, but “too early” used to mean December. This year, however, someone (not mentioning names here) decided that Belgrade could attract more tourists by investing the taxpayers’ money into premature Christmas lights, and, apparently, pretty much everyone jumped on the bandwagon.
Some of this stuff is cute, as you can see on the picture above.
But it’s still too early.
A holiday isn’t a holiday if it lasts for three months. It becomes a season, and a season is… Something else.
Not to mention it’s annoying to watch this overcommercialized stuff for three months.
After the Book Fair and BeoKon, it happened. Not quite unexpected considering all the excitement and being busy combined with suddenly very cold weather, but I was hoping to avoid it. I didn’t. I got sick. A bug or something, not serious, but tiresome. I’d like to be able to breathe normally. I’d like for my temperature to get a bit lower, and for my brain to work a bit better. It will. After a while.
In the meantime, look at the cute birds. The weather is too cold to be pleasant for them, but they manage. The neighbor keeps scaring them away by banging on the windowsill (they’re apparently too noisy for the neighbor, not that I understand how banging on the windowsill is going to reduce the noise), but, once again, they manage. And they keep coming back. I’m glad they do.
So, look at the cute birds.
