Google Doodle today …. Wassily Kandinsky’s 148th birthday!!

~~December 16, 2014~~

Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky’s 148th birthday has been celebrated in a Google Doodle illustration today that reflects his own distinct abstract style. 

Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky (16 December [O.S. 4 December] 1866 – 13 December 1944) was an influential Russian painter and art theorist. He is credited with painting one of the first purely abstract works. Born in Moscow, Kandinsky spent his childhood in Odessa. He enrolled at the University of Moscow, studying law and economics. Successful in his profession — he was offered a professorship (chair of Roman Law) at the University of Dorpat — Kandinsky began painting studies (life-drawing, sketching and anatomy) at the age of 30.

In 1896 Kandinsky settled in Munich, studying first at Anton Ažbe’s private school and then at the Academy of Fine Arts. He returned to Moscow in 1914, after the outbreak of World War I. Kandinsky was unsympathetic to the official theories on art in Communist Moscow, and returned to Germany in 1921. There, he taught at the Bauhaus school of art and architecture from 1922 until the Nazis closed it in 1933. He then moved to France, where he lived for the rest of his life, becoming a French citizen in 1939 and producing some of his most prominent art. He died at Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1944.

At the end of the day …. “Take me to church”, by Hozier!!

~~November 11, 2014~~ 

Many advances have been made in the equality movement yet there are still so many places on this earth where loving is conditioned to the “normal” standard: man and woman. Many, who have different lifestyles, are insulted, abused, persecuted, discriminated against, degraded, assaulted and even killed because “they are different”. This video reminds me of the big part that organized religion plays in this situation. All done in the name of what is right or wrong. 

Who is anyone to judge?


Andrew Hozier-Byrne (born 17 March 1990), known simply as Hozier, is an Irish musician from Bray, County Wicklow.

Take Me to Church” is a song by Irish recording artist Hozier, released as a single in 2013 and taken from the EP Take Me to Church. It is also the first track of his self-titled debut album.


~Lyrical interpretation~
Lyrically, Take Me to Church is a metaphor, with the protagonist comparing his lover to religion.

Hozier states to The Irish Times, “I found the experience of falling in love or being in love was a death, a death of everything. You kind of watch yourself die in a wonderful way, and you experience for the briefest moment – if you see yourself for a moment through their eyes – everything you believed about yourself gone. In a death-and-rebirth sense.”


~Music video~
The music video for “Take Me to Church” was directed by Brendan Canty and was released on 25 September 2013. The video, shot in grayscale, follows the relationship between two men in a same-sex relationship and the violently homophobic backlash that ensues when the community learns of one of the men’s sexuality. Hozier himself does not appear in this video.

Ireland’s State magazine noted that the video echoes the wave of violence currently plaguing the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in many parts of the world, particularly Russia. “The song was always about humanity at its most natural, and how that is undermined ceaselessly by religious organizations and those who would have us believe they act in its interests. What has been seen growing in Russia is no less than nightmarish, I proposed bringing these themes into the story and Brendan liked the idea.”

At the end of the day …. GOBI~Klangwelt!!

~~November 7, 2014~~ 

The Culture of Mongolia has been heavily influenced by the Mongol nomadic way of life. Other important influences are from Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism, and from China. Since the 20th century, Russian and, via Russia, European culture have had a strong effect on Mongolia.

~~Traditional values~~

Among the topics that are mentioned from the oldest works of Mongolian literature to modern soft pop songs are love for parents and homesickness, a longing for the place where one grew up. Horses have always played an important role in daily life as well as in the arts. Mongols have a lot of epic heroes from the ancient time. Hospitality is so important in the steppes that it is traditionally taken for granted.

The Mongolian word for hero, baatar, appears frequently in personal names, and even in the name of Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar (Mongolian: Улаанбаатар, Ulan Bator).

Klangwelt (“sound-world” or “world of sound”) is the musical project of Gerald Arend, a German audio-designer from Norderstedt (near Hamburg) who’s working for the multimedia and computer games industry.

Born in 1966, he already made his first contact with electronic music in the late 70’s with Jean-Michel Jarre’s famous “Oxygene” album. More records with synthesizer music followed, made by artists like Tangerine Dream, Michael Rother, Vangelis, Kitaro and Klaus Schulze.

The more he listened to these fascinating sounds, the more he was convinced that this was the kind of music he would like to play himself.

A video honoring Laika …. First dog in space!!

~~November 3, 2014~~ 

I was 7 years old when this happened. I wasn’t aware then. As a matter of fact, I didn’t know about this until today when the video below came through my FB news feeds. It doesn’t cease to amaze me what we humans have done to animals through the ages.


The Sad Story of Laika, the First Dog Launched Into Orbit

Aboard the Soviet’s Sputnik 2, Laika, a dog, became the very first living creature to enter orbit. However, since the Soviets did not create a re-entry plan, Laika died in space. Laika’s death sparked debates about animal rights around the world.

Nov. 3, 1957: The Soviet Union sends the first living creature into orbit 


It was a Space Race victory that would have broken Sarah McLachlan’s heart. On this day, Nov. 3, in 1957, the Soviet Union launched the first-ever living animal into orbit: a dog named Laika. The flight was meant to test the safety of space travel for humans, but it was a guaranteed suicide mission for the dog, since technology hadn’t advanced as far as the return trip.

Laika was a stray, picked up from the Moscow streets just over a week before the rocket was set to launch. She was promoted to cosmonaut based partly on her size (small) and demeanor (calm), according to the Associated Press. All of the 36 dogs the Soviets sent into space — before Yuri Gagarin became the first human to orbit Earth — were strays, chosen for their scrappiness. (Other dogs had gone into space before Laika, but only for sub-orbital launches.)

The mission was another in a series of coups for the Soviet Union, which was then leading the way in space exploration while the United States lagged. Just a month earlier, they had launched Sputnik, the world’s first satellite. When Laika’s vessel, Sputnik 2, shot into orbit, the U.S. fell even further behind.

Although they had long insisted that Laika expired painlessly after about a week in orbit, an official with Moscow’s Institute for Biological Problems leaked the true story in 2002: She died within hours of takeoff from panic and overheating, according to the BBC. Sputnik 2 continued to orbit the Earth for five months, then burned up when it reentered the atmosphere in April 1958.

“As it appears in … “

Count Lev Nikolayevich, 9 September, 1828, also known as Leo Tolstoy, was a Russian writer, philosopher and political thinker who primarily wrote novels and short stories.


Tolstoy was a master of realistic fiction and is widely considered one of the greatest novelists of all time. He is best known for two long novels, War and Peace (1869) and Anna Karenina (1877). Tolstoy first achieved literary acclaim in his 20s with his semi-autobiographical trilogy of novels, Childhood, Boyhood, and Youth (1852–1856) and Sevastopol Sketches (1855), based on his experiences in the Crimean War.

His fiction output also includes two additional novels, dozens of short stories, and several famous novellas, including The Death of Ivan Ilyich, Family Happiness, and Hadji Murad. Later in life, he also wrote plays and essays.

Tolstoy is equally known for his complicated and paradoxical persona and for his extreme moralistic and ascetic views, which he adopted after a moral crisis and spiritual awakening in the 1870s, after which he also became noted as a moral thinker and social reformer.


His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him in later life to become a fervent Christian anarchist and anarcho-pacifist. His ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You, were to have a profound impact on such pivotal twentieth-century figures as Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and James Bevel.
