GIVING BIRTH: don’t know what you believe in, but I believe in working my ass off!

Ellen von Unwerth photography

Some personal thoughts, feelings - to be more precise, I decided to spread publicly, in order to hopefully find the starting point. I’m again at the creative process and it’s fucking killing me. No stars - No censure. That’s exactly how it’s supposed to be regarding to the present state of mind.

Fresh January (2013) remix by Cirrus tributing Bonobo [The North Borders] on AFROgliuck’sNoizeWave:


Since my article (I’m supposed to be writing at the moment) isn’t moving towards the realization of it at all and is completely lost in translation, this blog post just reached the stage of pure monsoon / craziest tropical rain people have ever seen like flood of my driving-crazy-creative-process expression.

this was my facebook status I posted 2 minutes ago: “yeah, well that’s how it kinda goes: looong and ever tiring pregnancy. trance. birth. at least that’s how in the most of the cases it’s supposed to eventually end up.”

so, here are some just found useful brilliant thoughts, that can always be used and followed instead or meanwhile my piece of brilliancy is still on the way to be born.

- Believe in your fucking self. Stay up all fucking night.
- Work outside of your fucking habits. Know when to fucking speak up.
- Good things come to those who work their ass off and never give up.
- Go and fucking find your inner demons.
- Never give up or let someone else make decisions which are supposed to be yours.
- If they don’t like you as the skinny girl you are, try to be a fucking plus-size.
- If life gives you a lemon make sure there is tequila around.
- If being number 14 in the world sucks work harder and become number one.
- If you want to hide go and hide in a fucking smart way.
- If you are going crazy. Don’t worry. Your mind is way too complex to keep it healthy.
- If you don’t want to show your face show your feet.
- Don’t fit in. Fit better.
- They don’t believe in your idea? Ignore it and take the challenge.
- Take pictures of yourself no fucking matter how you look, anyway you are just doing it to prove you are alive.
- You are the result of 4 billion years of evolutionary success. Fucking act like it.
- It’s you. The next big thing.
- I LOVE YOU. So go and fucking love yourself.

Last but not least, my personal contribution to the set of wisdom, THE BRILLIANTESTESTESTEST OF BRILLIANT IDEAS AND REALIZATIONS OF MINE EVER (drum roll) you can believe in whatever you feel like, but as long as it concerns me, I BELIEVE IN WORKING MY ******* ASS OFF to make it happen!

Always,

My Dear Taj, where do your midnight runaways take you to?

Open air verandah at Taj Palace, New Delhi

I’m so flattered to be able to share with you one of my favorite places of my life in New Delhi! We’ve had some awesome midnight runaways and serious discussions with my Indian brother of another mother here. The first time I was taken here by him was because everything else in Delhi was already closed since it was just simply really too late night. Yet this place is always welcoming! And even though it’s not allowed to sit at the tables outside along the pool during the night, we’d always somehow convince the wonderfully hospitable staff to let us to do that! And last but not least, actually the most important - what we would always order - THE CAMOMILE TEA served with piece of heaven tasting almond biscuits! Oh, and sometimes, when it would get more like a really early morning than late night, the peacocks would start their early morning serenades behind the garden. Just like a fairytale in the XXIst century, ah? ;) If you ever happen to be in Delhi, India, this experience is something you simple must go through your self. Really.

I mean, really, what could you beat the cozy or sometimes extremely intense yet always interesting chats in amazing midnight under the mood shine in the middle of Delhi, yet quiet like in the space, pool side open air verandah with beautiful exotic jungle-like Taj Palace garden and hot camomile tea reminding own home and camomile aroma soaked endless meadows in Lithuania with?!

Cheers from sentimental memory card called “Home away from Home. New Delhi Edition”

7 días en La Habana

My dears, You are in treat this time here! BIG TIME!

I’ve got an amazing movie to watch for you - 7 DAYS IN HAVANA. You may not have visited Cuba in the real life yet, but the film will definitely bring you the entire 100% authentic atmosphere of it. Unique and incredibly talented actors, wonderfully charming characters, breathtaking cinematography (!!!), awesome locations, hospitable & passionate culture and perfect music! Co-productions of Spain, France and Cuba totally nailed it - worked out brilliantly and you can feel it in each moment of the movie. The type of the movie reminds me of other my beloved movies such as “Coffee & Cigarettes”, “Paris, je t’aime”, “New York, I love You”, the productions of Wes Andersen, Jim Jarmusch and similar. My feeling about this movie in one sentence: IT REVEALS THE TRULY MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO PEOPLE AND REVEALS THE TRUE BEAUTY OF PEOPLE!

Bienvenidos a La Habana!

I just got melted and got familiar with the characters so much in “Jam Session” Tuesday with Pablo Trapero and Emir Kusturic (starts at 20:37 minute) because of the warmth and genuinity (aka what I meant by ” IT REVEALS THE TRULY MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO PEOPLE AND REVEALS THE TRUE BEAUTY OF PEOPLE” above). No masks needed when there’s a magic jam session of life with us every single moment! (watch one of the scenes of this part below)

My ultimate mind blower of this movie is the part “Diary of a Beginner” Thursday, with Elia Suleiman (starts at 55:00 minute). Elia Suleiman’s GENIUS!!!! cinematography in terms of beauty of each shot is my ultimate favorite. The aesthetics, minimalism, composition of the shot and the execution of the main character - perfections! (I’m happy to know I discovered one more icon to follow and be inspired by - Elia Suleiman)(watch a video brief what idea’s Elia had in his mind for his part in the movie below)

Possibility of Life: what if you were able to dream what you wanna dream of 75 years of your life?

*BRILLIANT MIND

Possibility of Life to think about - Illusion: The dream of life by Alan Watts

Let’s suppose you were able every night to dream what you wanna dream and you could have a power over one night to dream 75 years of your life <…>

Let’s have a surprise. Let’s have a dream, which isn’t under control, when something is gonna happen to be that I don’t know what it’s gonna be. And you did that and you come out of that and you say “wow, that was in the closest shape, wasn’t it?” Then you would get more and more adventurous and you would make further and further out gambles as to what you would dream and finally you would dream where you went on. You would dream a dream of living the life that you actually living today <…>

Every one is fundamentally the ultimate reality. <…> You are god, only you’re pretending you’re not.

-Alan Watts

“Watts, like Rowe, showed me how we construct our own meanings about life. That nothing is a given and, since everything is uncertain, we must put together a world view that might fit roughly with the facts, but is never anything other than a guess — a working fiction. This, too, is a typical Zen understanding — that life cannot be described, only experienced. Trying to see all of life is like trying to explore a vast cave with a box of matches.”

-Tim Lott

Alan Watts “was a jester as well as a thinker, describing himself as a ‘spiritual entertainer’. Aldous Huxley described him as ‘a curious man. Half monk and half racecourse operator.’ Watts wholeheartedly agreed with Huxley’s characterization. He carried a silver cane ‘for pure swank’, he hung out with Ken Kesey and Jack Kerouac (he is even parodied in On the Road as Arthur Whale). His English public school-educated voice was rich and deep, like a prophet’s, and his laugh juicy and contagious.”

-Tim Lott

Good night & Sweet DREAMS!

Always Yours,

Beirut and Dubai: love of achievement

I am glad to share with You, this absolutely fresh, one day ago uploaded piece of art and inspiration in moving pictures - and an episode of a life story to see, hear, learn and grasp.

Get ready to be taken to beautiful ancient-modern culture cities of Beirut and Dubai!

My greatest compliments to John Walker & Sons Voyager (a true Odyssey! www.jwsvoyager-odyssey.com) for the worth a million words freshly made video production!

And here are some Raja Trad’s (CEO Leo Burnett Mena) wisdom and inspiration pieces I decided to have notes of (below). What are your highlights?

*You have no other choice except to love Dubai and admire Dubai and respect what they were able to achieve. So my love with Dubai is the love of achievement. It’s the spirit. The Dubai’s spirit. It reflects on everybody. When you have this drive, when you see this drive, when you live this drive and when you see this enthusiasm and when you see this commitment to making things happen, that reflects on everyone. It’s an environment that will enhance the delivery and performance, it is a country that will encourage progress.

*I worked with all my heart, with a deep commitment, with passion and I said “let MY performance decide my career” <…> no one else will decide your progress in life. It’s about you: you have to decide where you want to go, you have to decide whether you believe in what you are doing.

*Progress means that you need to keep on challenging your self, means that there is no finish line in life and that you have to keep walking.

Get inspired!

Always Yours

Welcome to the Lithuanian “Burning man” type art madness which never ends and keeps expanding

*Meet me in Vilnius

photography by C. Cesnakevicius

Welcome to Uzupis Republic. Artist area: very boho-type district in one of the oldest and the most authentic locations of Vilnius (my home city and capital of Lithuania). Charming, unique, mad, mysterious and a must visit place in Europe. Expected the next Christiania (Danish autonomous neighborhood of artists in Copenhagen)  of Europe - to be.

Uzupis - politically very straight forward, brave, active, initiative and supportive area in the worldly issues, such as Tibet, Nepal, other controversial topics.

In the photo: white stork in the main square of Uzupis, graphically mixed with a hint of the desert.

White stork is one of the most iconic, symbolic, very closely culturally related, yet sadly extincting, birds of Lithuania. White storks every year leaves Lithuania to spend winters in Morocco, more warm deserted areas, and each spring they come back home to Lithuania to expand their families here. It’s also believed by Lithuanians for hundreds of years now, that if white storks build the nest in the territory of your home - it’s a blessing and good luck. If you get to see the even number of white storks - it’s going to be the promising year for those who look for the partner in life or / and wish to expand the family with the newborns.

Galera - gallery, place for summits, workshops & summer night cinema in the open-air

Come to Uzupis, experience the unique atmosphere. If you are an artist - it’s a perfect place for inspiration. I would definitely suggest to come and join other artists from all over the world, to create something new, great and unconventional. There is no place to be exactly like Uzupis anywhere in the world - which means it is a true undiscovered Gem & treasure on the map of the world. I would call this place “Burning Man type art madness with Lithuanian twist which never ends and keeps expanding!”

Meet me in Vilnius!

Yours,

AFROgliuck
