That’s Life. Amazing Joker.

You know why I am posting this. Do you:) Stunning version of Frank Sinatra‘s original song. ** The Phoenix ** 10 “IS IT JUST ME OR IS IT GETTING CRAZIER OUT THERE?” In Batman lore, Gotham is usually depicted as a broken city before Batman arrives to save the day. However, the Gotham we see in Joker is even bleaker. The ’70s setting provides a gritty feel to the place, and it always feels like it is a city about to go up in flames. The conditions of Gotham likely play a huge role in Arthur’s descent into madness. As the film begins, we see … Continue reading That’s Life. Amazing Joker.

Shell Shock: Break Down in WWI. Now they are free.

Well, before facing this topic I have been meditating and taking time for breathing, alone, in the woods. This is one of the most sensitive subject I am still willing to write about. For the side story, I am one of those who experienced panic attacks and tremors, neurosthenia, physical and mental break down, which led to occupational burn out, as a consequence of « Paris Terror », in january and november 2015. Still dealing with the aftermath. But I am confident, and I will sort it out or bust. By the way, I lived a « fake alert », while terrorists were around … Continue reading Shell Shock: Break Down in WWI. Now they are free.

Repression of War Experience. A poem by Siegfried Sasson.

Now light the candles; one; two; there’s a moth; What silly beggars they are to blunder in And scorch their wings with glory, liquid flame— No, no, not that,—it’s bad to think of war, When thoughts you’ve gagged all day come back to scare you; And it’s been proved that soldiers don’t go mad Unless they lose control of ugly thoughts That drive them out to jabber among the trees. Now light your pipe; look, what a steady hand. Draw a deep breath; stop thinking; count fifteen, And you’re as right as rain …             … Continue reading Repression of War Experience.
