si bine ca am la mine

pastilele de inima

sunt alergica la muzica

si dansez, dansez

despre noi, despre ei

un razboi  dansez

in tara vecina

ca seherezada ploua

in povesti de dimineata


iarba verde din straini

iau pastilele cu bere

cu noi, cu ei

Mâncând în ploaie

Plouă (bineînțeles!)

Umbrela s-a spart

Mănânc un ecler

Și plouă în crema de ciocolată

Am apă-n păpuci

Și eclerul nu are budincă!

s-o scriu, sa n-o scriu?

Ca un bețiv care caută sticla cu parfum

După ce a terminat și vodka și berea

Și a închis deja la chioșc

Caut sa văd cartea după ce am citit filmul

sau era invers?

Nu mai știu, că pe la pagina 352

mi s-a rupt filmu’

Încă n-am găsit
Nici un videoclip
de pus pe feisbuc
să te bântui cu el
nici o melodie
să ți-o pun pe wall
(deși mai degrabă
ți-aș pune-o pe perete)
N-au cântat-o încă
pe aia în care
să plâng
Și să urlu
Și să scrâșnesc din dinți
să mă uit pe tavan
cu pumnii strânși
unul pe telecomandă
cu ghearele-n palmă.
Sau să-ți trimit
un banc cu blonde
ca și când
m-ar durea-n paișpe.
Te aștept.
Vreau să te întorci.
În genunchi.
Pe coji de nucă.

Harap-Alb is on the move

Apparently blogging doesn’t suit me so well, given the large time span between my posts. However, here’s something worth mentioning:

A group of very talented people from Romania had a brilliant idea that I just HAVE TO share. I just found out, even if their project was born a few years ago:

They’re taking a traditional fairy tale and turning it into a comic book. No, not the fairy tale itself, but the characters and their lives after the ‘they lived happily ever after’ line. What, did you think there aren’t other creatures of the darkness out there besides the main antagonist? So far I’ve been telling you about British Mythology, well, just like they have the Kelpie, the Banshee, the Black Annis etc., so do we have these quite scary entities like the ‘Ielele’ (Veelas), the ‘Moroi’ (spirits of children who died unbaptized) and so forth.

The comic book story-line, from what I understood by reading the teaser website, will actually take the characters from this classic tale on adventures beyond the marriage of the prince and princess (who, by the way, is a metamorphic witch).

They will be fighting the forces of evil, alongside Harap-Alb’s trusted friends:

‘Gerila’ (the ice bender) son of a northern giant who can breathe ice, has an ice hammer and is exceptionally strong,

‘Lungila’ (he can stretch like a rubber) who is a huntsman and a great archer,

‘Flamanzila’ (roughly translated as ‘forever hungry’) he can eat anything and everything and then he’ll tell you he’s still hungry!

‘Setila’ (this one is ‘forever thirsty’) who cand drink up rivers and lakes and seas, and even if it’s alcohol, he never gets drunk

‘Ochila’ (the cyclop), who can see through stone and can cover great distances through space and time with his sight, he can kill by looking at the enemy.

and of course, let’s not forget about the one, the only, the EVIL ‘Spanu’ (bald guy), because just like English speaking folks believe the gingers don’t have a soul, so do we, but we also have the bald person, who is rumored to be evil, treacherous and greedy.

The best part about these comics? They’ll be just like the ones with Superman, Spiderman and X-men. Yep, they’ll be drawn in the style of Marvel and DC comics. By the way, the first time someone actually tried to turn Harap-Alb into a comic, was a few years ago. Since then, Sandu Florea, the artist, has been working for Marvel and DC!

This time, it’s Andrei Moldovan, the artist behind the new concept. I wish him and the editorial team good luck and may the Force be with them!

On top of the world!

On top of my world, that is…

The city of Brasov, where I’m currently living is considered to be the most beautiful in the country. Yesterday I wanted to eat a sandwich… on top of Tampa (THE mountain). Convinced a few friends and started climbing the 25 serpentines. Ate a sammich, or two, drank a glass of wine, or three, then descended on another path and headed for the Citadel, where a Medieval Fair was taking place.

This was the *wow* weekend!

Hey guys! Sorry for not updating the story of The Hounds of Saidem for over a month. I do have a good reason. Actually, I have several good reasons. I’ve been tackling two jobs, MA lectures and projects and a two-week pneumonia that scared the s*** out of me! Oh, and I ran out of photos of dogs. The good thing is, I’m not sick anymore and I’ve given up one of the jobs. The not-so-good thing is that although I may have just a bit more time now, I still won’t be able to continue this story for a while. This is because I found out about a novel contest that I’m planning to enter, with the time limit being about a month from now, so all my writing is currently focused on THE novel. Wish me luck please! Thanks for sticking with me. Here’s a treat for your support (this was taken a year or two ago, in the Romanescu Park in Craiova):
