03. Amused To Death - Roger Waters - Jun 1, 2019 9:34:00 PM

Doctor, Doctor, what is wrong with me
This supermarket life is getting long
what is the heart life of a color tv
what is the shelf life of a teenage queen

Ooooh western woman, Ooooh western girl

News hound sniffs the air, when Jessica Hahn goes down
He latches on to that symbol of detatchment
Attracted by the peeling away of feeling
The celebrity of the abused shell, the belle

Ooooh western woman, Oooooh western girl

And the children of Melrose strut their stuff
is absolute zero cold enough
and out in the valley, warm and clean
the little ones sit by their tv screen
no thoughts to think, no tears to cry
all sucked dry, down to the very last breathe
bartender what is wrong with me,
why am i so out of breathe
the captain said excuse me ma'am
the species has amused itself to death

amused itself to death
it has amused itself to death
amused itself to death

we watched a tragedy unfold
we did as we were told
we bought and sold
it was the greatest show on earth
but then it was over
we ohhed and awed
we drove our racing cars
we ate our last few jars of caviar
and somewhere out there in the stars
a keen eyed look out
spied a flickering light
our last hurrah
our last hurrah
and when they found our shadows
grouped round the tv sets
they ran down every lead
they repeated every test
they checked out all the data on their list
and then the alien anthropologist
admitted they were still perplexed
but on eliminating every other reason
for our sad demise
they logged the only explanation left
this species has amused itself to death

no tears to cry, no feelings left
the species has amused itself to death
amused itself to death

[Alf Razzell:] "Years later, I saw Bill Hubbard's name on the memorial to the missing at Aras. And I... when I saw his name I was absolutely transfixed; it was as though he... he was now a human being instead of some sort of nightmarish memory of how I had to leave him, all those years ago. And I felt relieved, and ever since then I've felt happier about it, because always before, whenever I thought of him, I said to myself, 'Was there something else that I could have done?' [ "I'd rather die, I'd rather die..."] And that always sort of worried me. And having seen him, and his name in the register - as you know in the memorials there's a little safe, there's a register in there with every name - and seeing his name and his name on the memorial; it sort of lightened my... heart, if you like." [donna:] "When was it that you saw his name on the memorial?" [Alf:] "Ah, when I was eighty-seven, that would be the year, ninete... eighty-four, nineteen eighty-four." Songwriters: Roger WatersAmused to Death lyrics © Warner/Chappell Music, Inc Roger Waters - Amused to Death

It's been a long time coming
Such a long, long time
And I can't stop running
Such a long, long time
Can you hear my heart beaten?
Can you hear that sound?
'Cause I can't help thinking
And I won't stop nowAnd then I looked up at the sun, and I could see
Oh, the way that gravity pulls on you and me
And then I looked up at the sky and saw the sun
And the way that gravity pushes on everyone
On everyoneBaby
When your wheels stop turning
And you feel let down
And it seems like troubles
Have come all around
I can hear your heart beating
I can hear that sound
But I can't help thinking
And I won't look nowAnd then I looked up at the sun, and I could see
Oh, the way that gravity pulls on you and me
And then I looked up at the sky and saw the sun
And the way that gravity pushes on everyone  On everyone........................   Coldplay Gravity  Songwriters: Christopher Anthony John Martin / Guy Rupert Berryman / William Champion / Jonathan Mark BucklandGravity lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Mgb Ltd., UNIVERSAL MUSIC MGB SONGS OBO UNIVERSAL MGB PUB LTD

06. De ce să votăm? - May 25, 2019 4:03:00 PM

Ce rost are? De ce să ne deranjăm să votăm?Cu siguranță există motive aparent raționale pentru care o mare parte din populație alege să nu își exprime opțiunea la alegerile parlamentare sau prezidențiale. În același timp rezultatele pozitive al unei astfel de atitudini se lasă așteptate. Ceea ce nu se poate spune despre cele negative: nivelul de trai, infrastructura, problemele din educație sau cele din sistemul de sănătate.Eric Liu · fondator Citizen University, director executiv Aspen Institute Citizenship & American Identity Program. „…nu există opțiunea de a nu vota. A nu vota înseamnă tot a vota, dar pentru ce disprețuiți și respingeți. A nu vota poate fi camuflat într-un act de rezistență pasivă și principială, dar de fapt a nu vota înseamnă predarea puterii în mod conștient către cei care au interese opuse ție, și către cei care se vor bucura să profite de absența ta. Absența de la vot e pentru fraieri.”

În urma votului care va avea loc în 26 mai 2019 vor fi aleși cei 705 eurodeputați care ne vor reprezenta la nivelul Uniunii Europene până în 2024. În urma votului care va avea loc în 26 mai 2019 vor fi aleși cei 705 eurodeputați care ne vor reprezenta la nivelul Uniunii Europene până în 2024. articol preluat gokid
07. Power of Silence - May 24, 2019 12:30:00 PM

What distinguishes normal people is that we share a metaphorical dagger; the concerns of our self - reflection. With this dagger, we cut ourselves and bleed; and the job of our chains of self - reflection is to give us the feeling that we are bleeding together, that we are sharing something wonderful; our humanity. But if we were to examine it,  we would discover that we are bleeding alone; that we are not sharing anything; that all we are doing is toying with our manageable, unreal, man-made reflection.  Sorcerers are no longer in the world of daily affairs, because they are no longer prey to their self - reflection.
 ― Carlos Castaneda, Power of Silence

09. Sleep Stages - BOJIN / ArtHalle - May 17, 2019 9:13:00 PM

ARTHALLE | VISUAL ARTS CENTREA unique space dedicated to contemporary art in Romania  . Arthalle Gallery Sleep Stages exhibition with works by Dragos Bojin   Budisteanu 10, 010774 Bucharest. We all will become Sleep, says Dragos Bojin.

An entire new world, marked with freedom and imagination, is becoming available through sleeping. In a psychedelic expressionistic formal stage, the contemporary aesthetics of ambiguity unfolds in Bojin’s works in open compositions, named Episodes, as in a TV drama sleep series.

Bojin exposes his Sleep Series on large canvasses, with countless quasi-identical monstrous characters, with an obsessive frentic dynamics of shadowy emotions that chaotically flood a space of social bitterness and stifled collective fear. His artistic approach catalyzes in the mind of the viewer the anxieties from the Munchian perspective, the collective cry. Bojin deliberately distorts the amplitude of emotions to fully evoke a philosophy of sociality in its miserable, fetid, deformed and odious side where the individual breaks down his contour up to uniformity/ leveling in a huge, amorphous mass.
The Sleep’s chromatics is strong, the thick layers, rich in saturated colors, often strident, in the foreground and often grays in the background.

Intimate and delicate as it is, the dream becomes in Bojin's „Sleep Stages” a mature artistic gesture of reception of a critical state about our lives on both personal and social level. Paradoxically, some of the characters look pretty joking and some are very good-hearted, as the painter says. Some of them keep their smile, no matter how tortured and frighten they are. There’s a glimpse of light in their eyes, as they found a solution to their fears and pains, some seem to try to climb a stair, others try to swim and save themselves, some seem to fall into the abyss.

There’s no beginning or end in Bojin’s paintings.
Sleep is God, he says.

Arthalle Gallery are plăcerea de a vă invita la vernisajul expoziţiei "Etapele somnului" cu lucrări semnate Dragos Bojin în Budişteanu 10, 010774 Bucureşti.
Vernisajul expoziţiei va avea loc pe 17 mai 2019, între 19.00 şi 21.00.
Artistul va fi prezent.  Etapele somnului

Toți vom deveni somn, spune Dragos Bojin.

O întreagă lume nouă, marcată de libertate și imaginație, devine posibilă prin somn. Într-o scenă formal expresionist psihedelică, estetica contemporană a ambiguității se desfășoară în lucrările lui Bojin în compoziții deschise, numite Episoade, ca într-un serial de televiziune.

Bojin îşi expune “Etapele somnului” in general pe pânze mari, cu nenumărate personaje monstruoase cvasiidentice, cu o frenetică dinamică obsesivă a emoţiilor tenebroase ce inundă haotic un spaţiu al încrâncenării sociale şi al fricii colective inăbuşite. Demersul său artistic catalizează în mintea privitorului anxietăţile din perspectiva munchiană, a strigătului devenit colectiv. Bojin distorsionează in mod voit amplitudinea emoţiilor pentru a evoca plenar o filosofie a socialului în latura sa mizerabilă, fetidă, diformă si odioasă, în care individul își frânge conturul până la uniformizare într-o masă amorfă imensă.
Cromatica lucrărilor e puternică, straturile groase, bogate in culori saturate, deseori stridente, in prim-plan şi griuri colorate pe fundal.
Lucrările lui Bojin nu sunt ”frumoase” la prima vedere, dar devin pe masură ce exorcizează demonii și fricile fiecărui privitor.

Intim și delicat, visul devine în "Etape somnului" un gest artistic matur de expresie a unei stări critice despre viețile noastre atât la nivel personal, cât și social. Paradoxal, unele dintre personaje arată "destul de glumeţe, iar unele sunt foarte bune la suflet”, aşa cum zice pictorul. Unele își păstrează zâmbetul, indiferent cât de torturate și înspăimântate sunt. Lumina rămâne vie în ochii lor, unii par să încerce să urce o scară, alții să înoate și să se salveze, unii par să cadă în abis.
Nu există început sau sfârșit în picturile lui Bojin.
Somnul este Dumnezeu, spune el.

12. Wearing the Inside Out - May 10, 2019 7:48:00 PM

From morning to night I stayed out of sight
Didn't recognize what I'd become
No more than alive I'd barely survive
In a word, overrunWon't hear a sound
From my mouth
I've spent too long
On the inside out
My skin is cold
To the human touch
This bleeding heart's
Not beating muchI murmured a vow of silence and now
I don't even hear when I think aloud
Extinguished by light I turn on the night
Wear its darkness with an empty smileI'm creeping back to life
My nervous system all away
I'm wearing the inside outLook at him now
He's paler somehow
But he's coming round
He's starting to choke
It's been so long since he spoke
Well he can have the words right from my mouthAnd with these words I can see
Clear through the clouds that covered me
Just give it time then speak my name
Now we can hear ourselves againI'm holding out
For the day
When all the clouds
Have blown away
I'm with you now
Can speak your name
Now we can hear
Ourselves againHe's curled into the corner
But still the screen is flickering
With an endless stream of garbage to
Curse the place
In a sea of random images
The self-destructing animal
Waiting for the waves to breakHe's standing on the threshold
Caught in fiery anger
And hurled into the furnace he'll
Curse the place
He's torn in all directions
And the screen is still flickering
Waiting for the flames to breakSongwriters: Anthony Moore / Richard WrightWearing the Inside Out lyrics © Concord Music Publishing LLCArtist: Pink FloydAlbum: The Division BellReleased: 1994Recorded: 1993Pink Floyd

manequins in black and white for the song of Pink Floyd HEY YOU
Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light
Don't give in without a fightHey you out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you with you ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming homeBut it was only fantasy
The wall was too high
As you can see
No matter how he tried
He could not break free
And the worms ate into his brainHey you, out there on the road
Always doing what you're told
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall
Breaking bottles in the hall
Can you help me?
Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all

15. Storm in Romania - May 6, 2019 5:17:00 PM

And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.

16. Comfortably Numb - May 5, 2019 7:40:00 AM

I have become comfortably numb...

Comfortably Numb is one of the best song made by Pink Floyd.
The song is one of Pink Floyd‘s most famous, and is renowned especially for its guitar solos in the middle and at the end of the song.
Is one of the most famous songs extracted from the album The wall. Is a real cornerstone inside the story of Pink (the protagonist of The Wall), because he change his personality from a normal man with the problem of a normal man, to a sort of tyrannic leader that talk to masses that believes in him.

Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone at home?
Come on, now,
I hear you’re feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again.
I’ll need some information first.
Just the basic facts.
Can you show me where it hurts?
There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying.
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I’ve got that feeling once again
I can’t explain you would not understand
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.
Just a little pinprick.
There’ll be no more aaaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick.
Can you stand up?
I do believe it’s working, good.
That’ll keep you going through the show
Come on it’s time to go.

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying.
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.

The story of Comfortably Numb'Dave Gilmour wrote most of the music while he was working on a solo album in 1978.
He brought it to The Wall sessions and Waters wrote lyrics for it. Gilmour believes this song can be divided into two sections: dark and light.
 The light are the parts that begin “When I was a child…,” which Gilmour sings. The dark are the “Hello, is there anybody in there” parts, which are sung by Waters.
This was the last song Waters and Gilmour wrote together. In 1986 Waters left the band and felt there should be no Pink Floyd without him.
Roger Waters wrote the lyrics. While many people thought the song was about drugs, Waters claims it is not. The lyrics are about what he felt like as a child when he was sick with a fever.
As an adult, he got that feeling again sometimes, entering a state of delirium, where he felt detached from reality.

He told Mojomagazine (December 2009) that the lines, “When I was a child I had a fever/My hands felt just like two balloons” were autobiographical. He explained: “I remember having the flu or something, an infection with a temperature of 105 and being delirious. It wasn’t like the hands looked like balloons, but they looked way too big, frightening.
A lot of people think those lines are about masturbation. God knows why.”
Mojo asked Waters about the line, “That’ll keep you going through the show,” referring to getting medicated before going on-stage. He explained: “That comes from a specific show at the Spectrum in Philadelphia (June 29, 1977).
I had stomach cramps so bad that I thought I wasn’t able to go on.
A doctor backstage gave me a shot of something that I swear to God would have killed a f—ing elephant. I did the whole show hardly able to raise my hand above my knee. He said it was a muscular relaxant.
But it rendered me almost insensible. It was so bad that at the end of the show, the audience was baying for more. I couldn’t do it. They did the encore about me.”
A confirmation about this was in a radio interview around 1980 with Jim Ladd from KLOS in Los Angeles, Waters said that part of the song is about the time he got hepatitis but didn’t know it. Pink Floyd had to do a show that night in Philadelphia, and the doctor Roger saw gave him a sedative to help the pain, thinking it was a stomach disorder. At the show, Roger’s hands were numb “like two toy balloons.” He was unable to focus, but also realized the fans didn’t care because they were so busy screaming, hence “comfortably” numb.
He said most of The Wall is about alienation between the audience and band.
Waters and Gilmour had an argument over which version of this to use on the album. They ended up editing two takes together as a compromise.
Dave Gilmour said in Guitar World February 1993:
 “Well, there were two recordings of that, which me and Roger argued about. I’d written it when I was doing my first solo album [David Gilmour, 1978]. We changed the key of the song’s opening the E to B, I think. The verse stayed exactly the same.
Then we had to add a little bit, because Roger wanted to do the line, ‘I have become comfortably numb.’ Other than that, it was very, very simple to write.
But the arguments on it were about how it should be mixed and which track we should use.
We’d done one track with Nick Mason an drums that I thought was too rough and sloppy.
We had another go at it and I thought that the second take was better.
Roger disagreed. It was more an ego thing than anything else.
We really went head to head with each other over such a minor thing.
I probably couldn’t tell the difference if you put both versions on a record today. But, anyway, it wound up with us taking a fill out of one version and putting it into another version.”


17. Hristos a Înviat! - May 1, 2019 3:22:00 PM

18. Floriile - Palm Sunday - Apr 20, 2019 9:02:00 PM

Sarbatoarea Intrarii lui Hristos in Ierusalim este cunoscuta in popor sub denumirea de Florii. Parintele profesor Ene Braniste afirma ca aceasta sarbatoare se mai numea si Duminica aspirantilor la Botez, deoarece in aceasta zi catehumenii, care fusesera admisi la Botez, mergeau la episcop pentru a primi Crezul ca marturisire de credinta. Aceasta duminica a purtat si denumirea de Duminica gratierilor, pentru ca in cinstea ei, imparatii acordau gratieri.Biserica vede in aceasta sarbatoare inaintarea lui Hristos spre jertfa de pe cruce. El putea sa evite moartea, insa, o primeste de buna voie pentru a o birui. Lui nu-i este impusa moartea ca o necesitate, asa cum ne este impusa noua. De aceea El moare pentru altii, nu pentru Sine. El nu avea pacatul imprimat in firea Sa, ca noi toti, pentru ca S-a nascut ca om prin voia Sa.Dupa modelul multimii din cetatea Ierusalimului care l-a intampinat pe Mantuitorul cu ramuri de finic, Biserica Ortodoxa a randuit ca in aceasta zi sa imparta credinciosilor ramuri de salcie binecuvantate. Ramurile de salcie simbolizeaza biruinta asupra mortii.
Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter that begins the Holy Week. It is the day that we remember and celebrate the day Jesus entered into Jerusalem as Savior and King. As Jesus rode a donkey into the town of Jerusalem a large crowd gathered and laid palm branches and their cloaks across the road, giving Jesus royal treatment. The hundreds of people shouted "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!" 
19. NSFW by Andronicuss - ArtHalle - Apr 20, 2019 6:02:00 PM

ARTHALLE | VISUAL ARTS CENTREA unique space dedicated to contemporary art in Romania  . 
Arthalle Gallery - NSFW exhibition with works by Andronicuss (Bogdan Andronic) at Budisteanu 10, 010774 Bucharest.
The opening took place on April 18th, 2019 between 7 and 9 pm.
The artist was present.
Not suitable for minors under 16.

About Andronicuss :'Experiencing truth in Andronicuss works might seem painful, horrible, scandalous, excessive, disgusting, obscene, violent or bloody, even tragic. Or hilarious.
Just like Shakespeare in the homonymous play, he organizes his puppets in an Expressionistic fictional stage, in violent paint strokes, primary colors and apparent grotesque primitive, sometimes deformed or modified, human or animal characters, imbued with archaic apotropaic elements (bones and magic masks).
Like Sisyphus who doesn’t want to return in the underworld after his promise to Pluto, the artist discovers the pleasures of the Earth and his huge appetite for the blue sky, a beautiful girl in a brothel, a bottle or two of wine, the sound of the musical instruments, the dancer, the movies and last, but not least, himself.
Andronicuss is almost always present in his paintings as the narrator/ of the massive and perpetual absurdity of the human existence, but also of its entire beauty and optimism. As Sisyphus chastised by the gods pushes his rock to the top of the mountains in an immense continuous effort, the artist alternates the harsh language of the forms with the optimism of minimal colors. The absurdity to the joy. The childish humor of his cartoon-like character depictions to the tragic of the consciousness of the author caught in a narcissistic snapshot with his camera while performing an erotic movie. The elegance of the gestures to the deformity of the characters. The grotesque to the beauty. The underworld to the Earth life.
His almost bacchanalia rhetoric of booze bottles and glasses, naked bodies in obscene positions and dancing ballerinas ends in painting, drawing or linocut in a strong stroke of his sumptuous logo-signature, the name Andronicuss being given by his mentor and friend painter, Magath.'
Diana Andrei

Despre Andronicus:Experimentarea adevărului în lucrările lui Andronicus ar putea părea dureroasă, oribilă, scandaloasă, excesivă, dezgustătoare, obscenă, violentă sau sângeroasă. Şi chiar tragică. Sau hilară.
La fel ca în piesa omonimă shakesperiană, artistul-regizor îşi organizează personajele-păpuşi într-o scenografie de poveste expresionistă, în culori violente, primare şi caractere aparent groteşti, primitive, uneori deformate sau modificate, umane sau animale, îmbibate cu elemente apotropaice arhaice (oase şi măşti magice).
Asemenea lui Sisif, care nu vrea sa se întoarcă in lumea cealaltă după promisiunea facută lui Pluto, artistul descoperă plăcerile pământului şi apetitul său imens pentru cerul albastru, o fată frumoasă într-un bordel, o sticlă sau două de vin, sunetul intrumentelor muzicale, dansatori, filmele şi nu în ultimul rând pe el însuşi.
Andronicuss este aproape mereu în lucrările sale naratorul absurdului masiv şi perpetuu al existenţei umane, dar şi al întregii sale frumuseţi şi al optimismului. În timp ce Sisif pedepsit de zei, îşi împinge stânca până în vârful munţilor, pastrându-şi bucuria, artistul alternează limbajul aspru al formelor cu optimismul culorilor primare. Absurditatea cu bucuria. Umorul copilăresc al imaginilor personajelor de desen animat cu tragicul conştiinţei autorului, surprins într-un instantaneu narcisist cu camera în timp ce realizează un film erotic. Eleganţa gesturilor cu deformarea personajelor. Grotescul cu frumosul. Lumea cealaltă cu viaţa pe pământ.
Retorica sa aproape bacanalică, cu sticle şi pahare de băutură, corpuri goale în poziţii obscene şi balerine dansând, se încheie în pictură, în desen sau în linogravură, în tuşa puternică a semnăturii sale somptuoase, numele Andronicuss fiind dat de mentorul şi prietenul său pictor, Magath.

Ilustrativă în acest sens este expunerea unui pict-obiect, operă din adolescenţa pictorului, care a îmbogăţit cu imagini pictate o mandolină, în care se descifrează embrionul preocupărilor pentru pictura constructivistă. Piesa, de un farmec deosebit, necunoscută publicului şi nici criticilor, creaţie a anului 1921, este expusă într-un cilindru de sticlă, al cărui platou se roteşte oferind spectacolul panoramării simbolurilor inscripţionate pe feţele gingaşului instrument muzical.Veritabilă regină a publicaţiilor, unicul număr al revistei 75H.P. – într-adevăr, un unicat al avangardei universale, conceput de Brauner, Voronca şi Roll, în care s-a introdus termenul de „pictopoezie“, unanim acceptat azi pe toate meridianele  – domină pleiada celorlalte tipărituri româneşti de avangardă: UNU, Integral, Punct, Urmuz, Adam, ca şi a întregii serii de banderole care însoţeau, la lansare, volumele, afişele, catalogele. observatorcultural/ Florin COLONAŞ

Victor Brauner was a Romanian Surrealist painter and sculptor, and one of the most important members of the Romanian avant-garde. Born on June 15, 1903 in Piatra Neamt, Romania, he studied at the National School of Fine Arts in Bucharest from 1916 to 1918. Soon after, he began painting landscapes and, as he put it, went through all the "Dadaist, Abstractionist, Expressionist" idioms. In 1930, he moved to Paris where he befriended Constantin Brancusi, Yves Tanguy, and Alberto Giacometti; the latter two lived in the same building as Brauner on Moulin Vert Street. His best-known painting, Self-portrait with enucleated eye, was completed in 1931, and coincidentally, seven years later he lost his left eye in a violent argument between Oscar Domínguez and Esteban Francés. In 1966, he was chosen to represent France at the Venice Biennale, and he died that same year on March 12, 1966 in Paris, France. 
The artist is buried in the famed Montmartre cemetery, where his epitaph reads: 
“Painting is life, the real life, my life.”

Founded by Royal Decree in 1936, and covering some 15 hectares on the shores of Lake Herastrau, the Village Museums is one of the greatest outdoor museums in the Balkans.There are more than 60 original houses, farmsteads, windmills, watermills and churches from all of Romania’s historic regions: Transylvania, Oltenia, Dobrogea and Moldavia. Every exhibit has a plaque showing exactly where in Romania it was brought from. bucharestcityinfo Desi este un paradox, Muzeul National al Satului (numit și Dimitrie Gusti) nu se gaseste în mediu rural ci in cel mai mare oras din Romania, capitala tarii – București. Patrimoniul bogat al acestui obiectiv turistic este alcătuit din construcții tradiționale din toate zonele țării. Veti gasi aici lăcașe de cult, locuințe și anexe, instalații de tehnică populară și meșteșugărească (mori de vânt, mori de apă…) și obiecte decorative pentru toate construcțiile menționate mai sus.A fost deschis la 10 mai 1936, in prezenta Regelui Carol al II-lea. Muzeul redă foarte bine viața taranului roman, diversitatea arhitecturii lemnului, originalitatea prelucrării acestui material, inventivitatea țăranului român și inițiativa de a împodobi cu migală orice lucru.

22. City in black - Apr 6, 2019 8:28:00 PM

To hear never-heard sounds,
To see never-seen colors and shapes,
To try to understand the imperceptible
Power pervading the world;
To fly and find pure ethereal substances
That are not of matter
But of that invisible soul pervading reality.
To hear another soul and to whisper to another soul;
To be a lantern in the darkness
Or an umbrella in a stormy day;
To feel much more than know.
To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a mountain;
To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon;
To be a tree and read the memory of the leaves;
To be an insignificant pedestrian on the streets
Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching.
To be a smile on the face of a woman
And shine in her memory
As a moment saved without planning.― Dejan Stojanovic

25. Corbii de Piatră (The Stone Ravens) Monastery - Apr 1, 2019 6:58:00 PM

The Corbii de Piatră Monastery is lying in a place as if chosen by the Divinity itself and the construction itself is remarkable by its complete simplicity that makes you meditate, introspect and pray. The church is documentary attested in 1512 when it became a place of worshipThe beginnings of monastic life at Corbii de Piatra (the Stone Ravens) are rather unknown. Most of the monastic settlements replaced older ones, going down through history to times beyond memory. This is how it must have been for the Ravens Monastery, located in the heart of a mysterious and very ancient ascetic Romanian settlement. The first document mentioning it is dated June 23, 1512, which is certainly not the date the monastery was first created, and there are accurate information stating that the holy place existed before this date.   The cave church of is a typological derivative of the hall-church, with two altars meant for two patron saints, typical of the Byzantine world of the 10th century. It is typologically related to the group of cave churches of Cappadocia, as the special feature of the double altar with one single nave is unique in our country. This solution was probably convenient for the small communities of monks who can go without the deacon. The stylistic features, the quality of the painting, exclusive with Greek inscriptions, corroborated with information gathered from other documents, allow setting the exact date of the complex at the beginning of the 14th century. The cave complex of Corbii de Piatra is the tangible evidence of the existence of monastic nuclei of the anchorite type in Wallachia even before the organization of the Wallachian church in the 14th century. Dug into a huge rock wall (30 m high and 14.5 m long), the church is, from an architectural point of view, falls into the byzantine architectural typology, characteristically for the 10thCentury.  On the other hand, this type of rupestrian citadel, having a camouflaged entrance (under 1 meter high) determines some historians to presume its age to be around the period the Christians were persecuted, that is about the end of the 2ndCentury, B.C. Other historians place their suppositions further back, presupposing that here would have been a Dacian place of worship, votive to the ancient God Zalmoxis.  The unicity of this monastery is not given only by its aspect and the space around it but also by the fact that the church has two altars for the same nave. In front of the entry into the church, there is the refectory (the canteen of the monastery). The interior of the church is sublime, silent and simple. It is worth noting that the mural painting date from the 14th Century and still has large original parts of the old painting, depicting biblical scenes: The Nativity Scene, The Raising of Lazarus, The Annunciation, and The Transfiguration.It is considered to be the oldest rupestrian painting into the country.An 11th old Century wooden church, placed into the yard, poorly build, skewed by the time and weather-bitten, completes the whole image full of spirituality and depth. This mysterious hermitage, from immemorial times, in which you are only allowed to whisper heavenly-minded and humble, is a place of pilgrimage for the believers and for the tourists that are seeking places endowed with special energies.

Mănăstirea Corbii de Piatră  este așezată într-un loc ales parcă de Divinitate, iar construcția în sine, se remarcă printr-o simplitate desăvârșită, ce predispune la meditație, introspecție și rugăciune. Biserica este atestată documentar la 1512, când a devenit lăcaș de cult cu hramul „Adormirea Maicii Domnului”, închinat domnitorului Neagoe Basarab.
Despre vechimea acestui lăcaș însă, sunt multe păreri, care consideră că originile s-ar situa în vremuri mult mai îndepărtate, ale istoriei. Săpată într-un perete uriaș de stâncă (înalt de 30 m și lung de 14,5 m), biserica se înscrie din punct de vedere arhitectural, în  tipologia bizantină, caracteristică secolului  X. Pe de altă parte, acest gen de adăpost rupestru, prevăzut cu o intrare de camuflaj (de sub 1m înălțime), îi face pe unii istorici să maergă cu prezumțiile, până la perioada persecuțiilor împotriva creștinilor, de la sfârșitul secolui al II-lea, după Hristos.
Alții merg cu supozițiile,  în vremuri și mai îndepărtate,  presupunând că aici ar fi fost un loc de cult dacic, închinat zeului Zalmoxis.
Unicitatea acestei mănăstiri, nu este dată numai de aspectul ei și al spațiului ce o înconjoară , ci și de faptul că, biserica este prevăzută cu două altare ale aceluiaș naos. Înainte de intrarea în biserică, se află trapeza (sala de mese a mănăstirii). Interiorul bisericii este sublim, tăcut și simplu. De remarcat, este pictura murală de secol XIV, care păstrează în original mari părți din pictura veche, ce redă scene biblice: Nașterea Domnului, Învierea lui Lazăr, Bunavestire, Schimbarea la față. Este considerată ca fiind, cea mai veche pictură rupestră din țară. În curte, o  bisericuță de lemn, de secol XIX, firavă și înclinată de timp și intemperii, întregește tabloul plin de spiritualitate și profunzime.
Acest schit misterios, venit din timpuri străvechi, în care nu poți vorbi decît în șoaptă, cu smerenie și pioșenie, este loc de pelerinaj pentru credincioși și pentru turiștii care caută locuri încărcate de energii deosebite.
