Week of the Omni Buses: “Tokyo” and “Tickets”

Originally posted on IAKEIJ:

Omni Bus movies are not always the easiest thing to watch (and make). People think of it as three (typically) short films under a coherent umbrella. They bounce off each other, they are use against each other, and they balance each other. “Tokyo” and “Tickets” can be described as well made films, as expected of the prolific directors invited to take part in the projects.

“Tokyo” is a three segment omni bus by Michel Gondry, Leos Carax and Bong Joon-Ho. Coming into the movie, Ive only known the works of Michel (Music Videos, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Science of Sleep) and Bong (Memoirs of a Murder, The Host). The umbrella that covered the three segments is obvious – Tokyo; how three foreign directors interprete the city. More than just the physical city, I find “Tokyo” very specific about the kind of psychological state of the people, which I…

It is with heavy heart and deep sadness that we mourn the passing away of Ajay Mody, also known as Ajaytao, blogger of “Ajaytao2010” and the “Ajaytao Botanical Photography” blogs. He left this world on the 10th August 2014 after a short illness at his home in Mumbai, India.

Ajay was an incredible blogger,  a great friend and a proud Mumbaikar. I was humbled, yet reassured, by his kind and spiritual take on life. His imagery was moving and beautiful. He loved nature, loved children and loved life. He has been a great blogger and a firmly loyal friend to many of us.

United by a common knowledge of Gujarati language and our love for blogging, I first encountered Ajay in April 2013 after I stumbled across his blog, possibly after he had visited one of my articles and liked them. The simple imagery of flowers…

Authors – Have you Written a Book? Want to Promote it?

Self-promotion is not an easy thing to do for some. While others find it as easy as breathing, many authors struggle with getting their work out there. I may regret the workload that comes with this, but I am going to make an offer to those authors out there that have written a book. I will not make rules as to who may take part and I also don’t require that someone be a subscriber of my website to take advantage of the things I offer.

Are you an author and have you written a book? Would you be interested in writing a SINGLE post about your work? This can be a pre-written piece, a synopsis, or a newly written article on what your book is about. The choice is up to you and I will allow links to be added to your book sale sites as well as a…

HE IS ALWAYS WITH YOU

 

black dog

 

I am always with you though often you choose not to see me.
Some days I hide in shadows but I’m always close.
Did you know that black dogs are the least adopted from shelters?
They say it’s because our features are not as prevalent…My belief? – That ancient memory inside the human brain knows me well.
I wish you no harm, it’s the human way to harm oneself ..not mine. I will be here..always to guide you when the time comes.

I smile as the black dog walks alongside me through the park.
It was a beautiful day.

 

 

HERE  IS THE ORIGIN OF THIS PIECE…..

I luckily stumbled on to THIS blog which offers a 100 word challenge for grown ups…I’m not sure if I’ve grown up but I’m not a teenager and the prompt was irresistable.

Here’s what Julia (the sites owner) offered….

I’m late in posting this week’s challenge but I’m going to use something in the news this morning. I’m sure you will all have heard of Robin Williams and maybe watched some of his films. For me, he was a talented actor who occasionally couldn’t change the persona he had created early in his career. His suicide is very sad but understandable I think as there was often a manic side to his performances.

The prompt for this week is:

…the black dog walks alongside me…

The pain behind Robin Williams’ punchlines

Originally posted on Anderson Cooper 360:

Robin Williams spent decades battling addiction to cocaine and alcohol. Williams would sometimes turn his inner battles into the punchlines of his jokes. As brash and funny as his admissions sometimes seemed, they clearly did not tell the full story of his struggles. Wolf Blitzer takes a closer look.

There are plenty of Americans who are struggling with similar issues. Wolf discussed treatment options with Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
