Holocaust Memorial Day 2015 - Paul Celan

Posted on 27 gennaio 2015



Fuga di morte

da "Papavero e memoria" ("Mohn und Gedachtnis")


"Nero latte dell’alba lo beviamo la sera
lo beviamo a mezzogiorno e al mattino lo beviamo di notte
beviamo e beviamo
scaviamo una tomba nell’aria là non si giace stretti
Nella casa abita un uomo che gioca con i serpenti che scrive
che scrive all’imbrunire in Germania i tuoi capelli d’oro Margarete
lo scrive ed esce dinanzi a casa e brillano le stelle e fischia ai suoi mastini
fischia ai suoi ebrei fa scavare una tomba nella terra
ci comanda ora suonate alla danza
Nero latte dell’alba ti beviamo la notte
ti beviamo al mattino e a mezzogiorno ti beviamo la sera
beviamo e beviamo
Nella casa abita un uomo che gioca con i serpenti che scrive
che scrive all’imbrunire in Germania i tuoi capelli d’oro Margarete
I tuoi capelli di cenere Sulamith scaviamo una tomba nell’aria là non si giace stretti
Lui grida vangate più a fondo il terreno e voi e voi cantate e suonate
impugna il ferro alla cintura lo brandisce i suoi occhi sono azzurri
spingete più a fondo le vanghe voi e voi continuate a suonare alla danza
Nero latte dell’alba ti beviamo la notte
ti beviamo a mezzogiorno e al mattino ti beviamo la sera
beviamo e beviamo
nella casa abita un uomo i tuoi capelli d’oro Margarete
i tuoi capelli di cenere Sulamith lui gioca con i serpenti
Lui grida suonate più dolce la morte la morte è un maestro tedesco
lui grida suonate più cupo i violini e salirete come fumo nell’aria
e avrete una tomba nelle nubi là non si giace stretti
Nero latte dell’alba ti beviamo la notte
ti beviamo a mezzogiorno la morte è un maestro tedesco
ti beviamo la sera e la mattina e beviamo e beviamo
la morte è un maestro tedesco il suo occhio è azzurro
ti colpisce con palla di piombo ti colpisce preciso
nella casa abita un uomo i tuoi capelli d’oro Margarete
aizza i suoi mastini contro di noi ci regala una tomba nell’aria
gioca con i serpenti e sogna la morte è un maestro tedesco
i tuoi capelli d’oro Margarete
i tuoi capelli di cenere Sulamith"

Todesfuge

"Schwarze Milch der Frühe wir trinken sie abends
wir trinken sie mittags und morgens wir trinken sie nachts
wir trinken und trinken
wir schaufeln ein Grab in den Lüften da liegt man nicht eng
Ein Mann wohnt im Haus der spielt mit den Schlangen der schreibt
der schreibt wenn es dunkelt nach Deutschland dein goldenes Haar
Margarete
er schreibt es und tritt vor das Haus und es blitzen die Sterne
er pfeift seine Rüden herbei
er pfeift seine Juden hervor läßt schaufeln ein Grab in der Erde
er befiehlt uns spielt auf nun zum Tanz

Schwarze Milch der Frühe wir trinken dich nachts
wir trinken dich morgens und mittags wir trinken dich abends
wir trinken und trinken
Ein Mann wohnt im Haus der spielt mit den Schlangen der schreibt
der schreibt wenn es dunkelt nach Deutschland dein goldenes Haar
Margarete
Dein aschenes Haar Sulamith wir schaufeln ein Grab in den Lüften
da liegt man nicht eng

Er ruft stecht tiefer ins Erdreich ihr einen ihr andern singet und spielt
er greift nach dem Eisen im Gurt er schwingts seine Augen sind blau
stecht tiefer die Spaten ihr einen ihr andern spielt weiter zum Tanz auf

Schwarze Milch der Frühe wir trinken dich nachts
wir trinken dich mittags und morgens wir trinken dich abends
wir trinken und trinken
ein Mann wohnt im Haus dein goldenes Haar Margarete
dein aschenes Haar Sulamith er spielt mit den Schlangen

Er ruft spielt süßer den Tod der Tod ist ein Meister aus Deutschland
er ruft streicht dunkler die Geigen dann steigt ihr als Rauch in die Luft
dann habt ihr ein Grab in den Wolken da liegt man nicht eng

Schwarze Milch der Frühe wir trinken dich nachts
wir trinken dich mittags der Tod ist ein Meister aus Deutschland
wir trinken dich abends und morgens wir trinken und trinken
der Tod ist ein Meister aus Deutschland sein Auge ist blau
er trifft dich mit bleierner Kugel er trifft dich genau
ein Mann wohnt im Haus dein goldenes Haar Margarete
er hetzt seine Rüden auf uns er schenkt uns ein Grab in der Luft
er spielt mit den Schlangen und träumet der Tod ist ein Meister
aus Deutschland
dein goldenes Haar Margarete
dein aschenes Haar Sulamith".
P.S.  Every January 27th I take a pause to remember the holocaust and to thank that old man (professor) who introduced me to Paul Celan poetry and made me cry at every verse he read in class.

The funniest and most original Fashion Adv of 2015!

Posted on 25 gennaio 2015





The new adv by Karen Walker to promote her new sunglasses collection is just awesome!
The star of the campaign is an old funny dog called Toast, a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel who has more than 150.000 followers on Instagram.
Despite the perfection of the hair movement idea captured in each pic I really appreciate Karen wanted to give fame to an old animal (with a tongue she is no longer able to control but which adds her more personality!) and consequently make everyone who bumps into this commercial appreciate pets even when they are not young puppies!

Well done Karen! ;)

Deal of the day: Biker buckled boots!

Posted on 23 gennaio 2015




Hi there!
I finally managed to buy something on sale! Biker  buckled boots by Zara!
I got them for 29.99 Euro and it was quite a good deal considering they are not in pvc but real leather!
I have something like five pair of biker boots but when the sale reaches more than -50% I can't feel guilty for purchasing a new one ;)
Do you like them? I love them, they perfectly represent my rock'n roll soul :)

Designer of the month: Kristian Aadnevik!

Posted on 21 gennaio 2015


KRISTIAN AADNEVIK is a London based womenswear label which I'm totally mad about and which surely deserves a mention in  the first "Designer of the month" title of this year.
I love how each garment reflects a senso of opulence, sensuality and gloom. 
Due to a tailoring background, all patterns are built on the body, working with natural effeminate shapes, contrasting sharp cuts and soft layering and drapes.
The Kristian Aadnevik aesthetic is a contrast between dark and light – the hard and passionate, against feminine, vulnerable beauty.
Each collection is particularly inspired by mysterious landscapes, majestic architecture and the wild and exotic. The design duo fuse together alluring shades, luxury leathers and lavish embellishments, to evoke these diverse, rich settings and striking cultures.

Here are two of the most beautiful dresses of FW2014 collection and three more pics show the best of SS2015 collection inspired by Ancient Greece.
