Some are Born to sweet delight

Some are Born to Endless Night. – William Blake, ‘Auguries of Innocence’ I bought this album over 10 years ago, on my birthday. It was terribly overpriced – probably with the excuse of being an indie import from a faraway country – but I felt so happy to see a Hawksley Workman record in a Lisbon store, that I had […]

Orphans

As an orphan one learns to be self-sufficient and one learns the tricks of the trades which go with that. One becomes a freelance. (…) I propose a conspiracy of orphans. We exchange winks. We reject hierarchies. All hierarchies. We take the shit of the world for granted and we exchange stories about how we nevertheless get by. We are […]

10 albums / 1 post

A corrente pede 10 álbums que ainda apareçam nas nossas playlists – uma capa por dia, sem explicações, e com a nomeação da praxe. Vou saltar os artifícios e apresentar os 10 da minha vida (que deviam ser 20 para caberem mais), um pouco por ordem de importância:

O Slogan Maldito

Deparei-me hoje com esta palermice de cartaz num tweet do irmaolucia e fui a correr confirmar. Era verdade, caros leitores: o CDS/PP de Almada (porquê especificamente o de Almada é uma boa questão, e uma à qual não sei responder) tinha um novíssimo cartaz para a sua campanha contra a eutanásia.: Digo “tinha” porque já o retiraram da sua página […]

The Endless Panel

Aside from the amazing depth and wonderful story, one of the reasons why I love The Endless is how great their are for art practice. From Dream to Delirum’s hair, which I have been trying to get right for aeons, to the fabric in Destiny’s cloak, Desire’s androgyny and Despair’s Buddha-from-the-underworld appearance. They’re all wonderful to play around with. Just […]
