The fears of Brazil are not so much that the world is spinning out of control because of the system. Because the system is us.

What Brazil is really about is that the system isn't great leaders, great machinating people controlling it all. It's each person performing their job as one little cog in this thing. And Sam chooses to stay a little cog and ultimately he pays the price for that."

"The computer is a spiritual machine"
—Umberto Eco

Tele-synaesthesia: presentation of a hypothesis
---Lecture by Doctor Hugo

Synopsis:The new media and the Internet enable us to experience different kinds of information which are of a specifically telematic nature and for this reason effectively differ from the usual forms of communication. By linking the concepts tele and synaesthesia to each other, we deal with the fact that the transmission of data creates a synaesthetic effect: tele-synaesthesia.  More >

"…wolves may lurk in any guise. Now, as then, tis simple truth; sweetest tongue has sharpest tooth."

This archetypal realm is the setting for a smart, subtle, literate script, a script which is as good as you'd expect from [Irish director] Neil Jordan (himself an accomplished fiction writer) and [fantasy writer] Angela Carter. For Carter, the cauldron of story has always been a witches' brew, bubbling over with primal ingredients: mist-shrouded forests, ancient graveyards, virginal girls and wise women, wolves with glowing eyes. She adeptly blends them all together. There is a symbolic richness to the film; everything is permeated with a sense of significance.  More >

Foi-me conto por uma amiga chamada Teresa. (Não sei que é o autor.)


O rei atirou seu anel ao mar
e disse às sereias:
"Ide-o-lá buscar
que se o não trouxerdes
virareis espumas das ondas do mar"  More >

From the pages of ashley's amblings:

Language by Suzanne Vega

If language were liquid
It would be rushing in
Instead here we are
In a silence more eloquent
Than any word could ever be
These words are too solid
They don't move fast enough
To catch the blur in the brain
That flies by and is gone

Mamoru Oshii's "Avalon" opens the gate to the future of cinema. And that is no mere hyperbole. The nuances and rhythms of the near-future world created here are captivating to the point of transfixion…there is a mystery…an intricate puzzle…and as Ash [the main character] delves deeper and deeper into this world of not only an illegal and highly compulsive game, but also of her own reality, the more questions arise.  More >

Book review by Ace Boggess

When trying to understand a person, a character in a book, or oneself, the first existential questions to ask are the questions of identity: Who am I? Where did I come from? How do I define myself? How do others see me?  More >
