The embarrasing moment of being myself

 
DIE
 

Burnt eyelashes
albino tinto breakfast without a soul,
naked palm-tree
inpudic dead dancing.

All I see
but the kettle sprayed on the wall,
my heart is gone
my heart is gone

train-spotting
with the sad potato chips
back skin peeling off
wrist invader strain
enhancing cosmos

Meet my neighbour
she grabs my hand
and tells me about
her dumb-ass husband,
we plan his death
by poison.

A little table
abandoned…
looks like a spider.

Azáfama de Estrikofight

 

Cansado de esconder
la boca en la mano,
me trepo a mi ego…
mira qué chiquito
se ve todo!!
y si me caigo?

El perfume de las mujeres
se mezcla con el de las flores…
ya no sé adonde estoy
ni cual era mi destino;
bueno que no se me olvide de respirar

Comprando filtros y cerveza,
una chica tatuada por el sol
y una tan viejita
que el propio tiempo se perdió
entre los pliegues de su piél

Rayo-compression

The feet
on the sand
at the sun
a strip of blue sea
a gradient sky
on top
as backdrop
a clear gradient of sky
and under
some humans
and over
umbrellas.
Then waves
and patters
and drift they drift
spin then drive
then drift
beautifully hopeless
millions of holes
like dunes
but smaller.

Faraway mountains
of semen houses
a stick
a butt
a plain
the green
of the pines
the loco-flora green
sand beetles
going about
their funny walks
not so funny flies
a breeze
the feet getting red
seagulls’ master class
on tap dancing.
Squeaky bird
feeding the beat
and beetles
eating a peach,
baby seagull
another plain
my brother
and
… time to wake up

Today while collecting rocks and surface samples I could swear I heard some super-smooth waltz. Maybe was just an hallucination, which is even more worrisome.

Anyway, there’s no need to Punish the Atoms, like my friend Snup once said “to render everything is to be” (WTF ???) =)

My days in planet Nebula T8 are numbered; I’ve been already assigned another mission.

Nevertheless these few days have been very peaceful… maybe has to do with the wonderful discovery of the Alfaminete Forest, far west on the southern hemisphere… I diligently flaneur around till I’m lost, unattached… then the creatures come and we play till the second sunset.

Merci a Albi, Donatello, Edgar, Marta and sweethearted siblings, Karma and friend, Crazy Nun, Manel, strong papitom, poll dancers, clown, djays, breakdancers, jugglers and all participants’ super warm and humbling open heartness, you’re the best. roundaboutlx.wordpress.com

HOUND no borboletario

 IMG_2113_processed2photo by Biuli, my edit 

 
 

Today’s hot
people looking crazy
reality’s melting off
leaving a grotesque delayed
. . . trail
of humanity . . .

What is it that is
you want me calling you?

My base is sound
extra pacacity dismal reflexion
so I can leave the ground
to the other side of sanity.

While we excel at being us
the clouds merge into each other,
people go shopping,
a little girls’s mesmerized
by her reflexions on the cars
as she walks . . . very slowly,
her father shouts – hurry up!

The light holds all
buildings’ roofs
and a black mama passes
with a collosal butt
enclosured by too tight
a pair of jeans.

Budhas’s watching over us
assisted by the solar powered praying wheels
made in China.
Dikky’s onto online puppies,
we’re about to eat
NEPALI FOOD!

I drank
I spoke my BS out,
I looked
and was looked in the eye.

In the public transport
next to 3 african muslim pops,
I AM HAPPY!
My heart is my biggest person
. . . really . . .

an impromptu form, from just now

 
 

All the tyrant children of the world
were transformed into tiny baby squids,
they kept their shinny innocent eyes
while their parents ate them.
It happened on a Sunday
precisely, when the same phrase
letf the shelter of their blossoming mouths:
I always want to remain bored.

more loose stuff from afternoon at the park
 
 

The tree is leaving
I don’t know where
but it’s leaving.
Said domethin’ about
the only path being the one under its roots

The tree is leaving
and I am taking its place,
’cause I always wondered
how would it be like
to feel the rain
for a couple hundred years
and then take six weeks
to undress . / . ;
randomly,
droping leave by leave
onto the whirly mouths
of northern winds

Having a family of coal ravens
growing-up-my-arm
or a myriad sparrows
messin’-around=ma=hair
would be such a cooly coolio YO!

Of many creatures’ lives
I’ld become witness and confident

\\\ the sound of a beaten and enraged teddy bear at a teddy bear’s therapy session is quite somethin’ – I’ve been told ///

I wonder how long it takes
for an email tree to tree?
I could write:
Salam alecum brother oak,
how are you doing today?

LOST IN NEBULA ✧✧ Chapters III & IV

 

 
This Nebula planet is weird, its hues are tingly and there are 4 seasons in each weak. So a place looks very different depending from a moment to another. Wonders!!

Recently I made contact with what it seems an intelligent creature, hopefully someone with whom to have a conversation… trying to find a Common Language in order to communicate. Energy is already good.
 
 

SOUNDTRACK
Here Are The Facts You Requested – The Core
From 2007 album All My Favorite Things At Once

This chapter-four-thingy has been quite a messy one. I’m aware and consequent with the fact that I tried to pack too much stuff into such a short runaway… that and some technical dificulties have made this one of the more challenging chapters to deliver. Deliver to whom? Such a good quetion uninvited guest; to the unknown, to a frail trail of lost souls, to the hungry ghosts… maybe. Anyway, I also had lots of fun and learnt invaluable (and soon to forget) lessons along the ride.

I do not talk about the people in the videos ’cause if I did what’s the fucking point of doing them?!

———————————– proof of my BS or there’s no contradiction ———————

YT-Greg


The new premiere’s panels are useful, BUT the program is less responsive. Like the bug with new AE’s warp stabilizer, this lumetri color interface has much to iron still. Simply put, no serious colour correction, let alone grading is possible, if fluidity is what we have in mind; prememé ate all of my RAM grass as if it was a snack, yes the 32 GB of it… and I’m talking within a 6 minute video workflow. Resolve is just pure fruition anyway; lightyears faster and an easier to get through WF, tracks much better, renders QB and as right now I’m skipping the conforming stage, pure joy… and thus we can make skin tones green :P

Note to myself: other than incremental sequences and a copy of the project, remember to literally lock everything down (video tracks, audio tracks, women and children tracks). Be sure to quadruple check on where are you working(?), if nothing’s missing, a little shot, a piece of audio, the last applied effect, opacity line accidentally turned down, if coffee is not left along boiling for last 2 hours, why are your fat uncontrolled fingers pushing random imaginary shortcuts as if it had no repercussion?!! Why on hell did you changed spot on the fucking middle of the grade?!!! Ah yes, sleep more, drink water, NO, that dry green thing it’s not food, make pauses, pay the bills before due date, have beer and spiffs with friends, walk the dog… I don’t care if you don’t have one!!! Once in a while make ritual sacrifices, just in case. Be nice to stupid people, plan their deaths with a cold cold gazpacho and one last important thing to remember, girls trying to fry your brains, fuck them!!! =)

Other “severe” problem (in the sense that it’s almost unavoidable and unsolvable) I encounter was banding (yeah 4:2:0, 8 bit, no mames!!), specially with out of focus areas – dealing with in the above grab. To an extent, the new grain feature (ffmpeg based, still betatesting) of hybrid and scanned noise overlay, helped mitigate big-time-posterization. Don’t judge by YT quality, if you could see master proRes file, there are just 2 shots falling apart; the rest stands the beating alright +)

Proof of concept 

dither_test

Another problem is related to bayer sensor (and jpeg engine) itself and it’s colour accuracy and  homogeneity. Despite all the rinsing and preparing and that Driftwood with his quantisation tables and colour matrices made GH2 a 100 times better video-camera there is just not enough quality in the data stream (talking about perceptual accuracy as measure) for the codec to do a decent job. A fucking nightmare and lots of care handling in post. Nevertheless it’s our tool, talk plural ’cause it sounds more true ,-) and we use it and we have fun… enough :-)

AH, 1 more thing, I deliberately didn’t create tytles (enough typed words already), nor mixed any “foraneous” audio track other than beautiful Lisa Sawyer song by Leon Bridges; because of 2 reasons, seemed to me that the words on the song were asking not to interfere, normally I like to somehow sample a bit of the image’s ambience but here just felt like noise contaminating and it is also kind of a “logical” step forward assuming the music-video stereotype. Secondly the video’s goes around childhood (dolls), passion/hobby, iconography (collection of hung Christs) and cinema, all in the living space of a nice couple… I liked both ideas of a muted end (pre sonorous films… maybe I should have gone B&W… hummmm next time better) and a story still beyond the soundtrack…
 
 

BTW, a big BIG thank you

to Selur, developer of Hybrid

 
 


 

No matter what we do, LOVE choses with its own eyes… and despite of the cosmic rays, the gamma radiation, the nitrogenous atmosphere and the alien forms that feast on my bread, that’a also true here in Nebula T8 =)

What a mess!!! The instruments have been giving wrong readings… so between the LQ oxygen and the constant repairs I lost track of the friendly creature. I need to check if was My Heart is my Biggest “Prison” or “Person” that I heard
