El evento de Action painting/Action drawing

Arriba Tony Orrico
Ay, ay, quien me mandará meterme en berenjenales. El realismo no opera en mí. Sensatez ilumíname. Qué bonito es el mundo de las ideas y qué cruda la realidad.
He organizado un evento de arte de acción para toda secundaria, dos cientos niños al lío en el auditorio. Me han dado ganas de cortarme las venas in situ y hacer yo también un action-cuadro con mi sangre.  Menos mal que todo ha acabado y empiezan las vacaciones.
Jugando a Yves Klein:
 Dennis Oppenheim, Two stage transfer drawing, 1971.
Jugando a Tony Orrico:
Este chaval lo ha clavao, porque no era nada fácil y muy cansado.
Jugando a Jackson Pollock:
Y cosas de risa que he encontrado en mi investigación Google:
Nutella action painting
Y ¡hasta un chino haciendo action painting! No dejan nada sin copiar.

Les deseo un muy feliz Año Nuevo Chino.

"Unknown pleasures"

Todas las películas que he visto de Jia Zhangke me han gustado. “Unknown pleasures” es del 2002, retrata a la juventud sin oficio ni beneficio de antes de los Juegos Olímpicos. Qué difícil es ser chino, porca miseria. Los protagonistas – de edades comprendidas entre los 18 y los 20- viven en Datong (doy fe de lo horripilante que es esta ciudad).
Dice la wikipedia, y estoy muy de acuerdo con ello, que para algunos, sus tres películas: “Xiao Wu”, “Platform” y “Unknown pleasures” son una  trilogía que define muy bien la transición de profundos cambios que ha habido en China. Más o menos, del 1995 al 2005. El gran misterio, de cómo China puede estar creciendo sin parar y la mayoría no tiene donde rascar. Todos los personajes son muy auténticos, con una personalidad y un entorno social bien definido. Y no les voy a contar el argumento porque es mejor que la vean.

Caparrones de Anguiano

Cada vez que vengo con la maleta llena hasta los topes por meter productos de La Rioja me digo siempre en el aeropuerto: “Tía, qué colgada estás, así te lo digo: qué pena me das”. Pero hoy, cuando estaba haciendo unos caparrones de Anguiano con panceta y chorizo de jabalí, me he dicho: “Esto que sale de la cocina es perfume y no lo que venden en París”. Y me han dado ganas de ponerme a cantar eso que cantaba Conchita Piquer cuando bebía vino español, vinoooo españoooool en Nueva York (en tierra extrañaaa).

Cuatro días para las vacaciones de Año Nuevo chino. Aquí se van a quedar con sus petardos, es un martirio el bombardeo día y noche de fuegos artificiales durante una semana. Después de ir tres días al banco he conseguido cambiar un poco de dinero para irme a Corea. Un día hay que ir para decirles que quieres cambiar dinero. (Cada vez que se va al banco chino 45-60 minutos de espera no te los quita nadie). Otro puedes cambiar hasta 3000 yuanes. Y si quieres más tienes que volver cada día, hasta conseguir la suma deseada. Cuando se lo cuento indignada a E, me dice: “Los bancos tienen moneda china. Es tu problema que quieras otro tipo de moneda. Vives en China. Te están haciendo un favor”·. Ggggrrrr…

Horóscopo chino 2014

Esta vez, el Año Nuevo chino entrará el 31 de Enero del 2014.  Pero dicen que las características del animal nuevo empiezan antes. Por si alguien no sabe de qué va esto de la Astrología china, ya hice una entrada copia y pega el año pasado.

Take action and demand more in the Year of the Wood Horse

Horse years place great emphasis on hard work and tenacity. 2014 could present fantastic opportunities for business, travel and adventure, but these things will require decisive action.
In general, "you snooze, you lose" could be the action-oriented Horse's motto. Furthermore, dishonesty and injustice may backfire spectacularly this Chinese New Year. The forthright Horse does not reward those who achieve their goals through underhanded methods.
The Wood element is ambitious, assertive and heroic. By aiming high this Chinese New Year, you can achieve much more than you ever dreamed. Settling for second best and sitting on the sidelines may result in terrible disappointment.
In a Wood year, you'll fare better by working to improve your life, rather than trying to maintain the status quo. Apply for jobs that pay more, afford greater satisfaction and offer more leisure time. Demand more from your romantic partner, and don't tolerate shoddy behavior.
Horse years are wonderful times to expand horizons, explore unfamiliar territory and get plenty of mental stimulation. If you've been thinking about taking or teaching a class, this would be a wonderful time to do so. Learning a foreign language and mastering a musical instrument are also favored activities in 2014.

Ultimately, you may decide you're having so much fun that you won't settle down. Wood Years can make people a bit restless. In the event you do fall in love, it could be with someone who is introspective, imaginative and cautious. Neat freaks and critics could get on your nerves.
