Pontanescu: What has the EU done for us?

August 17, 2012


Micile discursuri nationaliste din ultima vreme, cumva pornite de mica cruciada a lui Pontanescu impotriva Vestului care e dezinformat si partinitor, mi-au adus aminte de Monty Python si abordarea lor a temei contributiei “cotropitorilor”. Enjoy, si weekend placut. Advertisements

North Korea giant statues – something to look forward to

April 14, 2012


As the North Korean Military spectacularly failed to launch a rocket (a.k.a. weather satellite) into orbit to mark the 100th anniversary of the great leader’s birth (Kim-Il Sung), they also celebrated by unveiling a second gargantuan statue to sit next to Kim-Il Sung’s lonely statue – this time of Kim-Jong Il.  So now the father […]

Ipotetic vorbind

March 22, 2012


Sa ne imaginam un oras cochet, destul de vechi, plin de tineri, dinamic, aflat in crestere si cu potential enorm. Sa-i zicem Ipocrille.

A few days ago, a friend of mine send me this link – it leads to a little short film by Dali and Disney […]

commerce fail?

December 21, 2011


This is the slogan of a Computer store… am I the only one to think this is a fail? Their name includes the word “intend”, so I see why they chose it, but still…

An ocean of milk as seen from Baisoara

December 12, 2011


Last night, driving down from Baisoara, I saw one of the most beautifulincarnations of fog. It was like an ocean of milk invaded the valley below and was waiting to swallow me as I was driving down. It was almost dark, so couldn’t really catch it in all its glory, but nevertheless, I think it’s […]
