poor children 2

he Simple Joy of the Poor Children

My friend, Poca, asked me to take some photos of his aging mother before she died, so he could have something to remember her by. As usual, I ended up taking some shots of the previous old man and his nephew (in the middle) and his friends happy to smile for the camera.
They don´t have much but they have their joy and sometimes I think that´s enough.
I´d rather spend my time with little children and old men, it seems. I´ve never felt my age and I seek the wisdom of the elders while trying to keep a child´s innocent view of the world...

Car Of The Future

Impress Your Date With A Car Of The Future


Want to impress your friends and possibly score a girlfriend? How about purchasing this sweet-ass "Fastlane" car of the future? You can "Buy It Now" on eBay for a cool $15,000. But before you push the button: It's not really a car. It's a shell designed to fit on top of a Pontiac Fiero. Which is not included in the auction. So, yeah. It was designed for Universal Pictures by concept car maker Trans FX for use in a movie or something. I know it can't actually go anywhere, but I still think I want it. I'll just use a flatbed trailer to tote it to the bar and then slide it off into a parking spot. Then I'll proceed to get some lucky lady extremely drunk and ask if she wants to see my fancy sports car from the future. Hopefully she won't notice there's not a goddamn thing inside and will still make out with me while we're sitting on the pavement inside. What, where's my sense? I'll throw a tarp down. I may even add a boombox for some makeout tunage.

Five more pictures after the jump, including one of what you'd see during a makeout session.

Nu exista tara pentru batrani

In rolurile principale

Aventuri, Drama, Thriller, Razboi

NU EXSISTA TARA PENTRU BATRANI este un thriller pasionant, realizat de Joel si Ethan Coen, dupa un roman al celebrului scriitor american distins cu premiul Pulitzer, Cormac McCarthy. Actiunea se petrece in vremurile noastre, cand traficantii de droguri isi fac de cap, iar oraselele au devenit poligoane de tragere in aer liber. Cu o distributie extraordinara, din care fac parte Tommy Lee Jones, laureat al premiului Oscar ("The Fugitive", "Men In Black"), Josh Brolin ("Grindhouse"), castigatorul premiului Oscar, Javier Bardem ("The Sea Inside") si Woody Harrelson, nominalizat de asemenea la premiul Oscar ("The People vc. Larry Flynt") Kelly Macdonald ("Trainspotting") NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN este realizat dupa un scenariu adaptat de fratii Coen, in regia fratilor Coen, produs de Scott Rudin, Ethan si Joel Coen.

Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) descopera o camioneta parasita, inconjurata de cativa soldati morti, dar in care (inca!) se mai afla o cantitate apreciabila de heroina si doua milioane de dolari bani-gheata. Moss ia banii, si de aici se declanseaza o reactie catastrofica in lant, pe care legea - in persoana serifului Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), un tip in varsta, care nu mai are niciun fel de iluzii despre viata, nu o poate opri. Pe masura ce Moss incearca sa scape de cei care-l urmaresc - apare aici un personaj misterios, un gangster care da cu banul cand e vorba de viata sau moartea oamenilor (Javier Bardem)

Filmul atinge esenta cutremuuratoare a raului contemporan, aceleasi teme biblice ce se regasesc in spatele titlurilor sangeroase, oripilante, din ziare.
