Sinoć sam ležao u krevetu i razmišljao, po običaju – zašto sam ja “odlučio” da ipak ostanem u ovoj zemlji i ne “pobegnem”, i sa čim ja mislim da se ovde bavim (juče razgovarao sa Anom iz NM za slabo plaćeni rudarski posao press-klipera) – i onda sam se setio “zašto”, i šta je moj stari san: snimati filmove koji menjaju ljude na bolje; snimati filmove koji motivišu ljude na borbu, pre svega sa svojim slabostima i sa svojim strahovima. I onda sam mirno zaspao.

Malopre sam se vraćao sa Mironom iz Društvenog centra – gde je bila jako kul atmosfera, kao što je bio i povratak sa njim, i priča o emitovanju energije, i njenom nekanalisanju, i reakciji drugih na nju – i počeo sam opet da kukam i žalim se na priču o Ivi i gomilu drugih depresivnih gluposti koje su odatle proistekle, praveći kasnije, na poplavljenom Dunavu, mali osvrt na moje zodijačko stanje škorpije, koja je u presudnoj vezi sa Saturnom od 5. oktobra 2012 – da bih kasnije skontao, posle njegove konstatacije da nisam mnogo napredovao – da svako ima svoje loše i dobre strane, i ako se posvetim samo lošim stranama, kao do sada, nikada do kraja zapravo ni neću moći da ih razrešim – kao što do kraja neću moći ni ostvariti sve svoje potencijale – ali zašto se vezati za negativne stvari i zanemarivati one pozitivne?? Pitanje nad pitanjima. Pitanje koje sam trebao sebi da postavim jako jako davno.

Nažalost, mi večito ističemo neku svoju pogrešnu istoriju, dok lako zaboravljamo onaj njen deo koji bi nam pomogao u savremenosti; tako je i sa Nolitom, nekada malom izdavačkom kućom koju je, u stanu Pavla Bihalia, vodilo nekoliko prijatelja. Produkcija Nolita je tih godina uglavnom predstavljala kombinaciju visokih umetničkih kvaliteta i političkog aktivizma; u tom smislu, do danas joj nema ravne. Kada govorim o političkim aktivizmu, mislim na antifašističku levicu koja je u to vreme bila neverovatna!”

Mađari VS. Bosanci

Moj otac je iz kolonizatorske porodice iz Bosne, majčini roditelji su Mađari čiji su preci dovedeni ovde najverovatnije u okviru programa Austrijske carevine i Marije Terezije. Dakle, ja sam rođen u mešovitom braku, i to iz veoma neobične kombinacije: Bosanac-Mađar. Horoskopski znak mi je takođe dovoljno “neobičan”: škorpija-blizanac. Prema koneskom horoskopu ja sam petao, što u kombinaciji sa škorpijom stvara veoma senzibiliran ego-sklop. A povrh svega, još većoj “neobičnosti” doprinosi i to što sam rođen na petak 13. I imam “šarene” oči.

Previše “neobičnog”. Dovoljno za “nezgodno”.

“5 Reasons Why My Cat Needs a Life Coach”

The five advices we can all take from this cute food-obsessed and low self-esteem cat’s life-coaching:

1. She needs to express herself

Sometimes we allow ourselves to fade into the background when we don’t feel self-confident. A new look often helps us feel ready to shine! Saffy could definitely visit the beauty parlor and try on a fresh new ‘do.

Some cats like to set themselves apart with a fashionable hat or smart sweater. Saffy opts to skip the duds and favors the au naturel style, but is willing to toy around with wigs and colored nail caps. Just because she’s 13 and has only six teeth in her mouth doesn’t mean that she doesn’t want to feel fancy.

2. She needs to get out of the basket

Although we play with her every day, she’s just not one for a lot of physical activity. Perhaps some of it is her age, but she never really has been much of a go-getter. I think if she picked up a hobby of some kind, she might feel more motivated to leave the basket. She’s always loved batting around game and puzzle pieces, so why not go with what she knows? Plus, she might meet new friends who appreciate her penchant for checkers and the gentler side of life.

3. She needs to set goals

Setting goals helps give us vision and direction. Even baby steps are helpful. Lounging in a basket may be Saffy’s favorite pastime, but anything food-related comes in a close second. When she’s not feeding her own face, she’s either stalking another cat’s food or jumping on the counter, sniffing around for scraps of human grub. She’s thinks she’s totally sneaky, but she’s totally not. Plus, losing a pound or two might help her feel a little more svelte and slinky. Look out, fellas: Here comes a six-toothed cougar hottie!

Shifting away from a food-centered existence will be challenging for her, but I think with the nurturing guidance of a life coach coupled with daily journaling and affirmations, this goal is very doable. Imagine how much more popular she’ll be at parties! After all, others tend to avoid the girl who always has their face buried in other partygoers’ plates.

4. She needs to stay focused

It’s hard work to stay focused when other cats are constantly harassing you. Saffy will have to learn to tune out the naysayers and keep Stuart Smalley’s voice on a mental loop: “I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And doggone it, people like me.”

5. She needs persistence

I know it feels like a lot to chew on (apologies to Saffy for the food reference), but I’m confident she has the fortitude it takes to sparkle with the best of them. After some time with a skilled life coach, she’ll be ready to take on the other cats, her personal demons … and the world!

*the old Facebook principles

16. When a super-girl asks you in a middle of conversation: “Do you have my number? Call me these days.”

17. The moment of epiphany, when things puzzle-up together.

18. When you start getting along with the people you haven’t (and it came from your own efforts). You realize it’s worthless being egoistic towards somebody who doesn’t harm you nor jeopardize you.

19. When you realize people don’t like you because of something you did or you didn’t – it’s the dis-balanced energy field you’re transmitting, making people confused and disturbed.

20. When you realize you’re an energetic beast – and the one behind “the wheels”.
