CULTURE & ENTERTAINMENT

Jonas Mekas, the Lituanian-born NYC filmmaker will turn 91 on Christmas Eve and he still recording, of course. That's what we like about him. How consistent he's been throughout the decades, the amazing stories he had lived, and the fact that he keeps sharing all with the world. Even now. Dazed Magazine published a really nice article about Mekas that includes a 7' excerpt from Walden: Diaries, Notes and Sketches (1969). Inspiring procrastination awaits. Just click here. E.T.P. 11'.

Changes in grammar happens because evolution. The uses of the word "because", usually a subordinate conjuction, are now changing. Linguist are calling it "prepositional-because" or the "because-noun" and it can be used like this: "I'm late because YouTube. You're reading this because procrastination." Please go ahead and read the full article in The Atlantic, it would be impossible for me to paraphrase it as I get confused by so many grammatical terms (English is not my first language and I'm still far from being awesome in it), anyway, here is the link. E.T.P.. 7'




I love the way Joe Berkowitz puts it on his article about Nymphomaniac in Fast Company: "no envelope will remain unpushed". He is talking about the recently released trailer of Lars Von Triers overly expected new film. Or again, as Berkowitz hopes: our generation's Caligula. Red his article here and have a look at the [NSFW] trailer here. E.T.P. 4'.
