Juno Reactor - God is God

I've seen this video long time ago and now it's on YouTube! It's amazing, really strange and apparently the footage is taken directly from Russian movie Sayat Nova from 1968, also known as Color of Pommegranate in the US (film was renamed because it was banned for long time in USSR). Sounds very interesting, I would like to see it!

Update: I've seen the movie - it's amazing. It's true that after watching it it's hard to forget it.

'Late at Night'

'...Late at night, I no longer speak for effect
I speak the truth without niceties.
I am hundreds of years old
but do not know how many hundreds.
The person I was
does not know me...'

From BoingBoing: this video by Charlie White is short but indeed powerful and trippy... Link

Nothing Twice

Wisława Szymborska
Nothing Twice

Nothing can ever happen twice.
In consequence, the sorry fact is
that we arrive here improvised
and leave without the chance to practice.

Even if there is no one dumber,
if you're the planet's biggest dunce,
you can't repeat the class in summer:
this course is only offered once.

No day copies yesterday,
no two nights will teach you what bliss is
in precisely the same way,
with exactly the same kisses.

One day, perhaps, some idle tongue
mentions your name by accicent:
I feel as if a rose were flung
into the room, all hue and scent.

The next day, though you're here with me,
I can't help looking at the clock:
A rose? A rose? What could that be?
It is a flower or a rock?

Why do we treat the fleeing day
with so much needless fear and sorrow?
It's in its nature not to stay:
Today is always gone tomorrow.

With smiles and kisses, we prefer
to seek accord beneath our star,
although we're different (we concur)
just as two drops of water are.

This is what I found out today:

Norwegian glaciers could melt completely from

Climate researchers predict that the approximately 1,600 Norwegian glaciers could melt completely away in course of the next 100 years. This would mean that only 28 glaciers would remain in the country.

Luckily, we are planning to go to Norway some time this summer, I hope that glaciers are still going to be there!...

We are all dying, all life long, and it looks that we are taking Earth down with us. Humanity - well done!
