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)

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

Coco’s Notebook



Past-me catches up with present-me to confirm future-me

It’s been thousands of times I faced this phrase “even if something wrong happens today, it always leads to better tomorrow“. I was almost about to call this phrase “so yesterday”, since it has seriously been used for too many times, BUT..

Sooo… Even though I stock my info on PC, 2 hard discs and Mac, there’s never enough space. When I decided to get a new movie downloaded it was just too obvious that it won’t be happening unless I erase some serious amount of stuff from my Mac. That’s the point where the wrong (too fully packed Mac) brought me to pretty amazing point of my life. Of course to delete things with closed eyes is just too cruel procedure for me, so I have to check every single thing before it goes to trash. I just opened one document and found  4 lines written down there. I had no clue what any of them meant, but the use of hyphen was a hint that there is a huge possibility it leads to music. (Since the early days I have a habit to write down the song the moment I hear it and like it. Even if it’s in the middle of the desert - i still do that! I mean it!) So I checked the last written line in that document on youtube (the line was “The Go! Team - Get it together”) BTW, the original date of the document brought be back to 2008 September 28. That time I was working as an on-air presenter of the radio show at the most popular “MTV”-type national radio station in Lithuania..

On AFROgliuck’sNoizeWave:

_______

If someone asked me about my present now, especially to describe it, I’d run out of words immediately. The only things I could say, would be “Transition“. This year (as in my 23 year) was pretty crazy - radical and life changing. It just suddenly dawned on me to switch to completely different career path. So in short, I’d say that somehow during this year I managed to loose my passion for the things I had been doing for ages (which always had made me feel so confident about my self and secure), to come up with an idea to leave everything behind and dive into the very beginning of everything. I flew half of the world for my potentially new career studies (till then I had no clue about diamonds or what so ever..), I quit my job (in music industry) and I decided to become an expert in diamonds & fine jewelry & generally to focus on niche luxury lifestyle industries. (…and actually, to my surprise, not so long after I came back home with my new diploma, it already got claimed publicly: photo of me and my friend from “Fashion Night 2012″ main event got published in lifestyle magazine with the title “media communication expert (my friend) and diamond grading expert (me)”) I spent big part of the year talking to people, how to understand who I am, how to rediscover my passions, how to find the inner peace, how to start hearing my intuition again, I reevaluated pretty much everything from the core in my life, I made a strong bond with couple of very important people in my life, I found oceans of spirituality in myself (who could have ever thought it’s possible with me at all?!!!), I re-believed (if that’s an existing word in English, but you get what I mean :D ) in the world, in people, in the new concept of my potential future life and most importantly in my self.

Basically, somehow in only one year I managed to bury my self to the core and to raise like a phoenix from the ashes. The phrase sounds pretty iconic but trust me the whole process wasn’t that iconic, actually there were some seriously bloody moments at some points. STILL the phoenix has risen! (I still haven’t got rid of all my fears or inside demons, whatever you prefer, and one of them is the fear to jinx the future, so I still can’t reveal what’s exactly is happening at the moment in my life, yet it makes me feel really weird and grateful at the same time, so stay tuned, haha).

_________

Back to the point. I checked the phrase on youtube and apparently it was a song. Moreover, it was a song that apparently I really liked at that point of my life (in 2008 september 28). Because of pretty huge role the music has always played in my life, in the lives of my closest friends and especially because of my strong believe the idea that music is one of the most accurate mirrors of personality, suddenly the past-me just popped out right in front of me again. It brought back all memories of that period life, of me, of my hopes and fears, struggles and joys. Only now I realize how young by all means I was then, yet I still relate to that past-me soooo much. I still like the song I liked then. I like what I see in the reflection of the mirror of that song. And the mostly I like the distance how far I’ve gone from then till now.

Yesterday I faced a strong reality check. The positive one, but it was definitely a reality check, when to be honest, for the very first time in my life I fully understood and embraced the idea of pulling my self together and getting it together in my life. Today all day long while running the errands I kept going through that fact again and again and again. For the very first time in my life everything seems so serious, responsible and real. So clear and so REAL. (Maybe after all, I wasn’t fully right saying that big part of me will never grow up..) During this year, there were many people sharing their wisdom of the life and one of the most often told ideas was to read signs & to listen to people and my self because the answers are always out there (some people said the god gives directions through signs and speaks through lips of people). I remember my self for couple of months spending at least an hour every evening sitting in the terrace of my New Delhi apartment, staring at the blank wall and constantly asking same questions over and over again in hope to finally get the answers.

Today it’s about two weeks till my 24th birthday. Some philosophies claim that people are reborn every 12 year. Personally I always had a thing for 23 - this magic number that I never knew the reason for, so there always was this silent movement in my head going on, that 23 year of my life will be the breaking point, where major changes will happen. Great intensity, signs lined up in the perfect sequence all together and this last call from the past (even though some of you may say - such a minor) coincidence (I know that in reality coincidences do not exist) gave me the final closure and confirmed that even though I’m going through some serious transitional period I’m on the right track and that’s the reason I must remain the faith in all that, no matter how unbelievable it might seem. I always wanted to write a book, but for that I always thought my life should be significant, magic and inspiring. Now I see that my life has started writing that book for me and You know what - I’m crazily excited about the upcoming chapter.

It was pretty awesome and outstanding feeling to catch up with my-past-self at least for as long as the found song was on. I’m grateful for closure and confirmation to be proud, calm, confident, faithful, positive, peaceful and most importantly determined to move on closer towards my Great Empire (as I partially in joke manner and partially in dead serious manner call the package of it all together in my future).

Cheers, My Dears, and till the next catch up already in the future!

Always Yours,

A.

Emerald Coral Coast and Sahara reminder
(view through the window: emerald colored coral coast during the sunrise after too early wake up)
2012 10 14: ‘Results of throwing myself out of my comfort zone: Too long day, too much sun, too long 16 hours road through the Sahara alone with complete strangers, too early wake up before sunrise, the drive during the sunrise on the liveliest emerald coral coast along the very south of the Red Sea and midnight desert traffic jam because of sand storm made me realize - my life’s damn awesome.. And I can’t be thankful enough for how my life turns up every single second of it.’
Cheers, My Dears,

My first experience of tasting Sparkling blood

*You know what they say - judgy wudgy was a bear”

Here’s a piece to the ones that would read a word “diamond” and right after that would go crazy, how “bloody” business it is and how some one would dare to even think of getting into these kid of things, supposingly becoming one of the horrible supporters of wars in poor tortured Africa..

CALM DOWN AND CONTINUE READING

My Dear folks, please, get your selves introduced  to Kimberley Process (here) .

For the record, I point this out not as not the solution to the problem but as the beginning of your own personal critical thinking which would hopefully lead you to bigger picture a.k.a. without Leonardo diCaprio in it anymore, yet much closer to the reality.

Be open-minded, be critical thinking lead, do question as much as it’s possible, because even though diamonds are fully packed into this mystic cover it really is very interesting niche to think of time to time and to get more knowledge about that as one more thing which is so small but plays so important role somehow.

NAKED TO CONFESS

I remember my first thoughts in the very beginning of getting to know diamond world from closer. It sounded kinda like that:

“I live in this world for 23 years. I travel, I meet people. I’m curious about anything and everything. I read a lot. I’m in constant research of new conspiracy theories. I practically live in the Internet and get thousands of news feeds from all over the world every single day. BUT I never imagined that in this world there is the other world, which always has been there next to me. From the first sight it may seem small, very closed which make is seem as almost in the parallel dimension at the same present as we live. It’s like a big elephant in the room, except I never noticed it! How blind was I? How many more things are happening right next to me and don’t even register them happening? “.

So I’m pretty sure that now you get what I mean by “just get into the first contact with the thing. It may seem and be as nothing huge, but the function of this ‘irrelevant’ first contact may transform, reincarnate, if you like, into the gate to much bigger picture and your new approach to so many great things in the life.

p.s. If the right amount of attention is payed while reading the Kimberley Process brief, your next come back to read yet another blog post of mine will be absolutely different. You’ll perceive ideas with a completely different approach and from the different angle.

P.P.S. You know what, that’s pretty amazing or even incredible and ethereal, how powerful our mind is!

Wish you good luck in the new experiences from the bottom of my heart!

Always Yours,

AFROgliuck

Holy trinity of boutique lifestyle

If someone asked me to continue the title of this post it would sound “Holy trinity of boutique lifestyle or holy trinity of my personal boutique lifestyle approach”. The best thing about boutique lifestyle and one of the biggest reasons I prefer boutique luxury over standardised luxury is the factor of personalization, exclusivity and by all means as fewer “mass - what so ever” as possible. So after having those three photos on my desktop ready to be uploaded to my blog (separately in different posts), I realized that they all have something in common after all. Now I know - it perfectly highlights one of the options of how I’d have my day while leading my boutique (unique, PERSONALIZED, not compromised) lifestyle.

1. Holy trinity of boutique lifestyle: breakfast in your personal pool.

2. Holy trinity of boutique lifestyle: lunch on the top of the world or pre-war building in the heart of New York.

3. Holy trinity of boutique lifestyle: mussels according to french recipe dinner under the chandeliers on the coast.

p.s. Because the biggest luxury is time, the option to choose and getting one and only. Asking of mass - customization? - this time I agree with the idea that sometimes the answer is in the question it self! Being more clear - mass is never exclusive. So if exclusivity defines the quality and luxury, then boutique defines the ultimate luxury.

Cheers, My Dears,

Always Yours,

Life is one big road with a lot of sign: signs of more signs

And very important wisdom worth to follow since it’s told by Anthony Bourdain!

While thinking about life and traveling and both effects on me, I intuitively heard words in my head again, played on my player for thousands of times “life is one big road, with a lot of signs, signs of more signs….” Continue about the connection between life and travel by Badmarsh & Shri on AFROgliuck’sNoizeWave:
