So this is happening on Sunday. I’m doing a lecture about Ray Bradbury at AnimeShow 2013 in Istropolis, Bratislava.
Met Kid Koala few hours ago. Such a sweet sweet guy. Did an amazing show in Bratislava. Had wonderful dancers, dancing puppets, brilliant turntablism skills and everything was just perfect. I couldn’t stop smiling the whole concert. After the gig I went to him and asked him about comics and really did nothing special and he just gave me his comics Space Cadet with a soundtrack as a gift. I’m still thinking about that moment and about Kid Koala and how sweet and wonderful person he is. I hope only good things happen to him. He’s from Canada. I’m not so surprised now but it is one of the best things that has ever happened to me.
Had 165 followers yesterday. Posted short post with words in it. Lost 2 followers. Those words, what did I think??? Folks want pictures, they need gifs, words are bad and evil. But I feel like words, however uninteresting, is what suits me now. Anyway, of course it matters a bit, loosing followers, and I’m on hiatus a bit, having too many stuff going on in my life. Mostly associated with my radio work. Helping with Radio_Head Awards, with programme Baláž a Hubinák, random stuff like Pohoda briefing. Apart from that trying to read as much as possible, trying not to surf the net blindly and without a purpose, which is quite hard. Whatever.
I like the way things have been happening recently.
This is a photo from yesterday from Pohoda briefing. All the guys and gals there are so so happy Atoms for Peace are playing Pohoda festival in July. They really love Thom Yorke, too. I had a great time with them, staying much longer than other press people. I wish them all the best with the festival.
All for now. Might write someday soon. Might not.
I finished The Damned by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt. Pretty good noir comics with demons, demons in suits, cynicism, bad guys, bad guys in suits, dead guys and dead guys in suits. Now I need to get The Damned: Prodigal Sons somewhere.
Hey, who broke the ability to queue Ask responses with the missing-e extension? God damnit I WAS ONLY AWAY FOR TWO WEEKS
Yeah, pretty much. I’m not active much on tumblr these days because I can’t stand the malfunctions. And I also need a break. I want to spend more time with books and comics. Too many hobbies besides my school and work in the radio.
Finished first three issues of Carbon Grey. This comics kicks ass. Just like the girls in it. Going to read the rest soon.
I’ve finished reading Cloud Atlas. Now what? I try not to have expectations of any kind but because of the fuss on the internet about everything, it’s hard not to have them. At least some tiny ones. The book is good. It doesn’t bring any big revelations in the story part but the formal part is definitely interesting enough. And it’s understandable, why some people find it hard to read. The book doesn’t give you anything for free. You have to invest your time in it. The six tales are only slightly connected, the eras change, so does the language, as well as the narrators and the ways the story is narrated - diary, letters…When you finally know what’s going on, you’re used to the character or something interesting is happening, cut…and the new story begins, you are interrupted and you have to start from the scratch. The story that starts the first ends the last. And it’s quite a cruel book, too. I didn’t expect so many deaths and so much despair. But on the other hand, the main themes of the book are slavery, freedom, inevitable progress, degeneration, moral issues, power and so on. I was kinda depressed while reading CA and had to make a break from time to time and think about something else for a change. I’ll go the cinema at the end of the month and I’ll watch the film adaptation. I’m quite curious.
It’s Monday already and I’m going to bed because I want to finish Carbon Grey before I’ll go the the radio and I’ll probably start reading Children of Men. Damn, another depressing book. But I have it from the library and I’ve already renewed lending time so…
And damn, damn, damn, I’m feeling a bit sick. So much more fruit and much more vegetables and I’ll hope I won’t end ill.
Finished another comics today. Sylvain Cordurié - Sherlock Holmes & Vampires Of London. It was ok. I’ll probably start Carbon Grey soon. And I’m still reading Cloud Atlas.
I have a weird mood. I’ve started a new semester today and I don’t know if I’m tired, disappointed or whatever. I kinda neglect internet and tumblr and stuff and I try to read Cloud Atlas when I have a while and I’m going through some tough things in the radio and everything is just weird. I can’t say everything is bad because it’s not how I feel. Damn this stupid mood, maybe indifferent is the right word for now. Hope it’ll all change because I can’t handle this for too long.
