Best song meets the best performer…

…and he is one of the few people that I will gladly call my friends. Not just some people that I know, but friends indeed. Enrico likes to sing and he do this with passion an pleasure. It was not easy to convince him to let me publish some songs here, because he was worried they are not perfect. It was his first record in studio (friend’s favor) and he was a bit embarrassed to admit that he couldn’t hear well the sound in his headphones.
You may not like his singing, or to feel your fine hearing a bit scratched by his Italian accent. Surely, not everyone will be able to listen this with his heart the way I do. But I really thought that it’s worth to share some of the songs he recorded.
He is just a man, who lives in Italy. His life is not the one he could probably have if faith has not decided to give him a wheelchair. But make not mistake, Enrico is everything but a disabled one. The true handicapped people are the ones that walk around with souls, robbed of tolerance and empathy and minds, damaged by vanity and greed or full with self-pity. Luckily, he is not one of them.
Enrico is a sunny, bright person. A guy which I have the rare privilege to know. His existence is enough a reason to me during the last years to keep me believe that true people are still not extinct on Earth. He reminds me that there is still a lot to be grateful for in this life and that we should value more what we’ve got.

Once he was the reason for me to make my first big travel abroad alone. I’ve met some old and new friends on the road and I found many important things about myself to be true. I could go and do this again and again, because for one real friend everything is worthwhile – even to cross the world.
Here is a video he made in 2007 as a Christmas greeting to all his friends.
They are BIG, you know?
I thought the concert will never finish. Song after song, FNM were there on the beach of Bourgas, excellence beyond all expectations. All of them perfect, Mike Patton himself – unbelievable!
This time, I cannot say too much. It’s like this when you are simply happy.
It was so beautiful while sometimes his shadow was projected over the giant trees near the stage… Hope somebody took a good picture of this.
The Man With Thousand Voices – he knows perfectly how to please the audience.

Twitter seems like the big fat enemy of the blogging these days… More and more witty thoughts, precious and funny links you can find mostly there. But this is also a good thing, at least in theory: this means, that probably the blogs will start to get filled with less “noise” and with more valuable content from the authors. In theory.
Very soon I hope I’ll be able to present you with the big changes in molif.com – mostly “the clothes”, but also some part of the functionality, which I want to improve. I am considering to add Twitter updates as well, it seems like a good idea to me.
Recently I found (blameTwitter again) link to animation in YouTube. It was a graduation project of a student from the Ringling College of Arts and Design. Where it’s obviously the students are people with amazing skills, or maybe the teachers are excellent, or maybe both, I don’t know.
Following “related videos”, I spent the whole morning watching short animations. Most of them are great – they show skills, good ideas and talent and some of the things are as good as Disney/Pixar’s.
I have to admit though, that I am not a huge fan of all this 3D hype – and I don’t mean bad for Shrek, but there are just too many animation movies lately, which for me feel distant and cold.
Maybe that’s the reason why I liked mostly this particular video (Author: Lindsey Olivares – great gift she has and amazing skills!):
And since YouTube are getting more nasty lately with their country restrictions, thanks very much, Lindsey, for putting your animation also on Vimeo.
Oh, and here is another beautifully made animation from Lindsey:
Finally!!! Will survive the postponed gig of Depeche Mode, most important now is Dave Gahan to get well. But will look forward for Mike Patton & Co to compensate me!
If somebody still doesn’t know, here is the news.
(and I love the city of Bourgas so much that I even think of moving there one day)
Have another one, I’ve got excited:
Who cares a lot? We care a lot!
Among some of the best movies I’ve seen lately, there is one that I cannot simply watch & forget.
The first time I saw it, I didn’t know what to expect, at all.
Without checking imdb, almost all the time I was expecting for some deep drama to develop on the screen. And I was almost angry to every little detail that was not true from historic point of view or was too forced.
But somewhere around the half of the movie I realized that what you need to do is to get relaxed and watch it with one and only purpose: to enjoy it. To feel the real audio-visual satisfaction that it provides – with great music, stunning cinematography and amazing actors.
All the actors in this movie are simply wonderful – the young as the older ones. The seem not to act, but to live they roles.
Here you can enjoy two short music pieces from this movie:
“Stilyagi” deserves to be seen.
It’s a music movie, but not exactly musical. There’s difference, you know.
But the influence it gives over all your senses is huge – the bright scenes and characters will probably haunt your head for days.
Oh, and there’s this impressive site for the movie.
You need to know Russian, and thus you’ll learn more facts about the story and the characters, as the movie is based on a book.
But what left me speechless after watching the movie, was the soft and good-nature attitude towards the past times.
You can feel the nostalgia, but you cannot find disturbing things like hate or denial.
The end is also very unexpected.
When the movie is over, you can find yourself irresistibly drawn to dance – and to feel young, alive, colorful.
I guess there are subjects and things that just gets me obsessed from time to time and something is making me going on in the same direction.
About fifteen or sixteen years ago, when I became friends with the clay for the first time, who knows why, but I started to make fairy dwarfs and small wizards. Most of them I gave to a friends almost immediately, but still have half a score at home, which i considered not good enough for a present.
In the last few years I have less and less free time and the needed serenity to do such things, but having this site made me realize that cats have ensconced themselves in it permanently and comfortable and for now they don’t even think about leaving.
On paper or from clay, it seems to imply that they know well what am I in need for – exactly not-being-in-a-hurry, more home life, even a bit of laziness.
Here are two specimens, that I love much.
First this charming one. Because he is always thinking for food, I gave him a magnet – to be close to the refrigerator.
We can learn many things from the cats. I admire their natural strength and elegance and the amazing ability to relax. Anywhere. Anytime.
And here it is the little pensive wanderer, who misses adventures and new lands:
He read a lot about the places that want to visit. But home is taking him back and it is getting harder to break the habit and go on the road.

He is also a big retro-fan and is born with the sense of good style. Always wanted to be a ship cat. He has heard that in the ship holds is full with rats, who knows the taste of rum and salt sea water. But he is not afraid, only curious to meet them.
