不對稱小姐

JanAgora

那一年未入幼稚園,應該兩三歲吧,在家幫媽媽熄掉哨子在響的水煲,不小心就打翻,小個子失重心跌坐在地,浸在剛滾的水不懂華麗轉身…那時還沒有那麼易哭,我沒有哭,媽發現的時候已經過了多久呢?不記得,時間在記憶裡早就延伸無限,現在說根本不準,只記得入院時皮膚已開始冒水泡。

前幾年讀急救,才知道我那些情況算兩成燒傷,二級燒傷。

我穿過五六年壓力襪,擦過的袪疤用品加起來應該過萬元(我可是見證「秀碧」除疤膏由三十多元賣到百二三元一支的歷史人物啊),可是疤只有變淡,沒有消退。中六以前,因為右腳的疤和雙腳奇怪的比例,再熱的天氣,我只穿三骨襪,或襪褲。

步入暮年以後我才漸漸放鬆一點,但,可以的話,我比較喜歡穿靴子。時至現在的廿多年後,我還是左右腿不對稱。

記得f說過,我這些事如果放在今日社會,早就成了虐兒個案。這個社會愈來愈怪吧?虐待自己最多年都只是自己。我真的遇過人指著我的大小腿談東說西,女生對這些時好難不難過吧?但,其實怎麼我會介意他們說什麼呢?就算我雙腿無疤,要挑的話我也會有其他東西給他們高談闊論啊。大面啊、橙皮紋高低眉大細眼之類等等其實不只我有的暇疵,說出來都不過對人不對事。就是因為我是我而被抓著談起來吧。

Let’s Talk about …. Glastonbury

都是講中文好少少….至少文法唔會錯得那麼交關, 和…至少不會得3個VIEW那麼丟人… (仲要成900字…) 偶像PATTI SMITH講過…"if somebody ask me if I really care if my poems are read by 30000 people or just 3 people. I say Fuck you…I do care. I feel good to know there are lots of audience who like what I wrote…"咁上下,所以都是中文好一點.

Patti Smith 帶大家回去今年的GLASTONBURY. 有一個FB朋友分享了她在GLASTO的錄像

題為 people have the power.

唉….一早知YOUTUBE都有就不會買VPN.反正又起唔到身,連續兩天只看到最後半個鐘…..

我在FACEBOOK見到了,本很想再SHARE. 但我最後沒有….我知道FACEBOOK太多滿腔熱血的人士. 我不清楚他們聽到POWER HAVE THE POWER 這個訊息後會有什麼令我想像不來的舉動. 回想幾年前SHARE的輔仁 “不應為保護社運圖滕, 社運每個人都是自己的圖滕", 我到今天都在想, 香港搞成如此這般, 我這個SHARE是要負上責任的. 當然有人講:

http://evchk.wikia.com/wiki/%E6%9B%BE%E6%86%B2%E6%A2%93%EF%B8%B0%E7%9C%9F%E6%98%AF%E8%8D%92%E8%AC%AC%EF%BC%8C%E6%8A%8A%E8%87%AA%E5%B7%B1%E7%9C%8B%E5%BE%97%E9%82%A3%E9%BA%BC%E9%AB%98

但我都跟自己說…不要再犯.

我不清楚他們會怎演譯People Have the Power, 但總之不是解作可以連群結黨出去搞大媽 (仲要搞唔掂).

我曾對一種言論, 來自D精英的. 人民就是愚昧. X之以鼻…但, 可能可變了. 變成….都是唔好SHARE…小心洗得萬年船…

Let’s Talk about ….. Gay

This is a passage shared by my Christian friend in Facebook:

http://chinese.christianpost.com/article/%E5%8F%88%E4%B8%80%E5%AE%B6%E5%9F%BA%E7%9D%A3%E5%BE%92%E9%85%92%E5%BA%97%E5%9B%A0%E6%8B%92%E7%B5%95%E8%88%89%E8%BE%A6%E5%90%8C%E6%80%A7%E5%A9%9A%E7%A6%AE%E8%A2%AB%E8%BF%AB%E9%97%9C%E9%96%80-20046/

It’s basically about …. hey, I guess you guys can read it yourself can’t you?

I have no doubt that what the website is talking about is true. And, I am not a professional sociologist who can clearly define what adverse discrimination is (LIKE 道長, 陶傑). What I know is simple: Evil of Majority. Everybody unconsciously likes to take advantage of others, tease others, beat others, rape others, rope others, even shoot others, if the bliss of the chance is on his side. Believe it or not.

Ivan said we are thankful of still being alive not because people who want to beat the shit out of us are bounded by law. I oppose it. Or, he is NOT going far enough. Look at the news in China, where a girl can be gang raped by policemen in exactly where they work, a police station. Look at the news in USA, where a black guy can be tortured to internal bleeding and left to death by a group of policemen at the jail, where they are working. Look at the news in Britain, where thousands of thousands of kids were abused by Presenters, Teachers, MPs, even peer (No…Janner is still innocent right?) They are all bounded by law. But if you are at majority (in power terms), you can do whatever you like to whom you want to abuse for pleasure as if impunity. We survive in hatred, or whatever, just because we know how to stay in the shadow of majority, avoiding being minority. That’s similar to those who join triad, or political parties. Same principle. To survive in this ruthless world.

Discrimination law fundamentally was enacted for the situation just like the above. Try, however ineffectively, to protect every minority from being beaten the shit out, being shot, being stoned, being tortured, being killed just because they haphazardly live in the shadow of minority. Sound familiar right? No? watch Brokeback Mountain again! Now! Such law evolves with time as the way of “beating the shit out of ’em minor" has been getting more sophisticated. Cut your fu….. working class family tax credit for rearing children while I lower the tax for everyone (just Bankers and Fund Managers get more of that) so I can damn your fu….. kids out of the best education system, waiting for the future my Blue kids sustain our privilege to treating your kids as fu….. plebs. Principle of Sustainability added to update the Evil of Majority.

Microscopically, there are possibilities, when gay people become the Majority in some communities and abuse the straight guys, families, businesses. Ukrainains vs Russians; Hong Kongers vs. PRC; PRC vs. Japan; Jews vs. Non-jews; Black vs. White (Look at what happened in Zimbabwe). Likewise, Gay vs. Straight. Forever the nemesis, the anti-thesis, the antagonists. If chance comes, I can’t be more certain that gay group can beat the shit out of straight minority. To think Evil of Majority is inimical to Gay group is itself a discrimination. You treat them as non-human. You cruel!

Having said the above, gay marriage enactment is still valuable to our society, because they still haven’t have something they have to have while we already have had. That simple. With the discrimination law, the straight couple operating a hotel with Orthodox Christian value have to close their business. But just try to think of the situation where every gay couple is facing now, without marriage right: No right of inheritance. No right of taking care of his/her partner’s dependents when his/her partner dies, or can’t claim any tax break/ allowance if doing so. No right of sustenance cost when the relationship breaks, as they cannot legally divorce. No right of telling everyone I have a husband/wife (Oh come on who cares….we better go Bachelor forever man! esp. in the poaching) But what if someone values it?

My Christian friend is right. There should be cases when gay people actually take advantage of Christians. The Law of Evil of Majority predicts that there should be such a case if gay people are sure they have absolute edge/impunity to do so. In nowadays atmosphere, I wouldn’t be suprised if some Big Love guys go to harrass and poster Christain schools in Hong Kong. But she/he is wrong when she/he thinks that it is the discrimination law which makes them do so, if they do so. They will do to you just like you do to them. Eyes to eyes, teeth to teeth, in the realm of impunity. We are human being. We are social being. We are evil being. We are social evil being (we are social to make sure we can do evil). In the name of Father, Son, Ghost, and Evil of Majority. Amen.

Let’s Talk about …. My BBC Life 2

再次感謝全能的GLASTONBURY,小弟已可在房看直播BBC 1, 2, 3….N. 感覺比任由家人在廳看拉姑和阿域子玲三角鋤,自由在房內看麻生舞更令人吉搭。

唯一的變數是…..有個兩歲的MINION走了入來問我看甚麼。趕又唔肯走,唯有問你看不看CEEBEEBEE? MINION很高興的走上來。有甚麼比一隻MINION走入來更糟?就是另一隻MINION也入來了。最後他們看了我的MACBOOKPRO,我只有在旁邊看書。很文青嗎? 老實說,我還是比較喜歡看電視。

CBB也真是,竟然節目是教WELSH….你是全心搞事嗎? 兩個MINIONS就跟著用WELSH唱123….SHIT…這情況比MINION更MINION.

我走了出廳,看到老婆,一個人的在看著武則天。我恍然大悟,其實他忍了我霸道的唔比人睇無線是霸了這麼久。廣東話娛樂本是自己最能吸收的娛樂,我是在反人性不知反了多久,還要再反多久。又要家人陪多久。不要跟我說無線節目有多不滯,我亦唔見得BBC的SATURDAY KITCHENS FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER有多不賴。而我這個行徑也正干犯家人的資訊自由,我跟金正恩好不了多少,頭髮他還反比我多(無法他是九十後我不是)。

我看了SAUL BELLOW的第一本小說DANGLING MAN,小說的主角JOSEPH其中一個最仆街的地方(那個早洩其實是一個方方面面的仆街,但最仆街的就是他成日覺得人地仆街過佢,仲要是左膠來的…OOWWW!)就是佢成日想改變老婆IVA變成佢心目中的文青女,佢仲要若干程度上成功了。

我從冇諗過改變佢,但她比我人性的娛樂習慣我要更包容佢。正如佢包容了我那麼久一樣。

移民…..就更不用想了。就樣我在這動輒就講抗爭,人地了鼻屎就指控人有條壞Chromosome的時代,寧靜的渡過餘生。

Let’s Talk about …文人筆戰

Good Day (or Night) Glastonbury. I am listening to Hozier. He is quite good.

講正題。冇睇過佢兩個的內文。不好評論太多。大概是人類研究的題目(民族)至生化研究題目(DNA)之間的爭論。曾經非常嚮往及期待的才人筆戰。可能年輕不再,再沒有心情去八卦。而當知道他們拗的依然是這麼無聊的題目,他倆果然是沒再令我失望,跟年多前的那麼令我失望。

難道我說DNA就是DNA嗎?這是simile ,他這也不清楚嗎?

民族那麼博大精深你懂個屁嗎?

蘇力行加入這一個問題。這兩個問題重要嗎?對於DNA那麼有心德的那位朋友,我就是知道你只是比喻那族人,由上至下都沒得救,但這是事實嗎?還有,下次嘈交不要拿奧巴米過來,小朋友嘈交的基本原則,不要找大人來,你那麼個半百阿叔,難道不明嗎?你那麼學賦五居,竟然要一個黑人的說話來助力,不是毁你多年所學嗎?

民族大義那位,昨天看時代,渣巴說有多遍研究講,其實沒這樣一種東西叫民族。只是人為方便去歧視跟自己不同的人的隨意不科學分類。不是你教我奧巴米是黑人這本身就是歧視嗎?今天你竟然退步到一個籃球員也能KO你嗎?一個中國人說另一個中國人歧視一班中國人,你不覺這本身是一個偽命題嗎?當白宮出現彩虹,密西西比扯下CONFEDERATE FLAG,達𡃤來GLASTONBURY呀夥身開PARTY,你們還是小朋友般嘈邊個低B邊個白痴嗎?

幾十歲人,生命有餘。have some music. have some life OK?

A new wildlife portfolio: Coyotes!

Christopher Martin Photography

Coyotes are a resourceful predators that roam all across Alberta – and much of North America for that matter.  I often find them hunting for rodents on the prairies or padding along the forest’s edge when I’m up in the mountains.  They are beautiful animals and I wanted to share a gallery pulled together from many encounters over the past couple of years.  Please click on Coyote Portfolio or the image above to visit the gallery.

詩意的夢~yingju-Lu

~牧羊女的風鈴詩坊~

~詩意的~

~如夢~ ~如夢~

畫面上的夢境意象太過強烈,醒著回想夢時常聯想到馬格麗特(Magritte 比利時畫家/1898-1967)以及基里訶(Chirico 義大利畫家/1888-1978)等一些超現實主義畫家們曾創作的作品。

但也許他們的畫本身就是一幅又一幅的夢境,在夢境與現實間跳來跳去,也因此充滿著魅力,讓人無法自拔地在某些時候就落入這樣奇幻的情境裡!

然而嚴格說來,我夢中的場景多屬古老的年代,甚至有些看來似乎是不屬於這顆星球上的事,又或如褪色成令人迷惘的老相片色系,但色明豔的風景仍是有的,還有美麗的大自然風景等,以及老城鎮,屬於超現實的夢雖有,卻沒那麼頻繁出現。但為什麼講到夢,超現實畫作就浮現在我腦海裡呢?也許就是那時空凍結的強烈張力太吸引人了吧,悸憾著心。

了解與不了解總是夢的精靈愚弄我們的一種方式,但我喜歡被精靈愚弄,甚至好些時候寧願活在夢的世界裡,在夢中體驗許多現實中的不可能,但也許將來有一天,我們終將明白這些看似不可能存在的,在某處或別的星球卻是可能的吧!

詩是「靈思的再現」,馬格麗特(Magritte 比利時畫家/1898-1967)曾如此說過,而他的畫作不僅充滿了幻想,也充滿著獨特而難以模仿的詩意。很難想像在屬於他獨特的畫風作品中,竟隱藏著如此巨大的悲傷,在馬格麗特(Magritte 比利時畫家/1898-1967)小時候母親自殺身亡,他所看到的是在桑布爾河(River Sambre)的橋邊,一具冰冷的屍體,被睡衣覆蓋著的母親的臉…,這些令人沉痛的記憶不斷出現在他的腦海裡,最終他將這些元素轉換,又一再地放進他的畫裡,可一切之後已不再萬般駭人,他雖保留了一切,卻同時將這一切都昇華了,他的畫面所呈現出的是安靜凝視且永恆無言的美,不是倉皇不安及奔逃。竟是這種凝止飽和的張力,他不利用物件驚悚的情緒表現而是以其色彩與空間的組合來取代,像魔法師一般重新給它一個夢的名字,自身寧靜沉思的紀念碑。

馬格麗特(Magritte 比利時畫家/1898-1967)與基里訶(Chirico 義大利畫家/1888-1978)在我眼底不僅都是傑出的超現實主義畫家,也都是詩人,是悲傷憂鬱的詩人。

我也有許多夢,夢裡也有如基里訶(Chirico 義大利畫家/1888-1978)一樣強烈的光影,尤其是他所偏愛的,也是現實生活中我所耽溺於的夕照斜陽下酣黃的光線。我理解自己的夢境像閱讀中的一本又一本的小說,奇怪的是,我永遠走不到夢的結局,夢的情節像在對我闡述一個又一個活生生的故事,但醒後,如何以一個推理小說者的角色去探究,也永遠不知道夢要告訴我的答案。夢有時是預言者是先知,可惜我太過於駑鈍,無法第一時間便握有解碼的鎖。然而,我仍然偶爾會思索起夢境,在這個不受時間、空間束縛的世界裡,對它有滿懷的鄉愁!

Let’s Talk about … an escape

感謝全能的Glastonbury. 令我終於的起心肝,買個VPN,睇BBC IPLAYER,唔洗再等NOW嗰幾個台日日LOOP番2011年的英國樓盤全真(British’s Dream House 咁上下)。你知啦,睇樓的野,你俾個2011年的價我有條L用咩….

昨日看到一個節目, 叫An Escape to the Continent. 原來的景鴻移民式的節目,仲要做一個鐘…..講一對英國夫婦想移民去馬爾他….shit…幾撚度來的…個節目就變成樓盤全真之情欿馬爾他,帶他睇D歷史建築咁的的屋. 個廳細度呢..真是細個我屋企嗰個.個COURTYARD看完笑了…細到….D廁所又冇浴缸,有間仲要上天台沖涼….D牆又LIMESTONE,但你見到對夫婦的對白就只有:

Oh Lovely

Oh Brilliant

Oh I love it

Oh I am happy

Wow….

Look at that…beautiful

初初幾驚冇SUBTITLE唔明呀….好彩….真是來來去去呢幾句……我心諗, 有冇咁開心呀….你會唔會去到錦上路見到D丁屋,入到去,然後Oh lovely I love it….Oh Brilliant….Oh….look at the courtyard….咁架….但當佢講價錢的時候我明了….195 000 POUND. 全幢….4房, 兩浴….Oh lovely….I am happy (錦上路要買一幢, 現時的價位是大約9500000,而且冇得look at the courtyard…因為根本冇.或許你可以Oh look at the neighbour. So close. I love it 而同時那鄰居是周秀娜,正在刷緊牙)

我在想….頂.我成日想過來,你班友就成日諗住走.身在福中不知足….不過當你想到佢地兩房都要3至40萬POUND,仲要是住到兩個鐘頭生活圈的邊皮. 又再想想我城20 000 蚊要住屯門邊皮, 仲要唔係1000尺. 真是生活逼人. 雖然過去又冇乜野…英國人最多笑你BEADY EYES. 超…不過學網友IVAN話齋, 我地香港人英文咁撚屎..都聽唔到架啦….生活如常…但生活於那處, 我想我最後都是想走…去到馬爾他, 我都只會想再去馬奇頓….可能195 000 POUND 而家買到成條街添….

還是…不要逃, 認命, 留在此好好工作好好生活….反正, 學佢話齋, 渣住外國戶照,最好當然在香港啦….

香港…我愛你
