Februari 2013

Februari began with a big chocolate cake, Miam! I even tried to read about modern philosophy but since I was often too tired on the evening, I did not come very far. The fact that I was tired is documented as well in this post for exampel. Resolution or this new year: to spend one hour a week reading smart things.

Worth to name it: we went to watch a movie at the cinema and it was “Django unchained”. I have a good memory of this film, but I would have been incapable to tell you when it was we saw it if I hven’t look in my blog..

We also watched “Waiting for sugar man” and it was much more better. I bought the album and I am listening to it very often, even now. I can’t understand why it was not more known by the time. To me is this music so much better than a lots from the Beatles or exampel.

You get a song for this. Read the text bellow (taken from here http://sugarman.org/) and admit that we still are there…

THIS IS NOT A SONG IT’S AN OUTBURST: OR THE ESTABLISHMENT BLUES

The mayor hides the crime rate
council woman hesitates

Public gets irate but forget the vote date

Weatherman complaining, predicted sun, it’s raining
Everyone’s protesting, boyfriend keeps suggesting
you’re not like all of the rest

Garbage ain’t collected, women ain’t protected
Politicians using, people they’re abusing
The mafia’s getting bigger, like pollution in the river
And you tell me that this is where it’s at

Woke up this morning with an ache in my head
I splashed on my clothes as I spilled out of bed
I opened the window to listen to the news
But all I heard was the Establishment’s Blues.

Gun sales are soaring, housewives find life boring
Divorce the only answer smoking causes cancer
This system’s gonna fall soon, to an angry young tune
And that’s a concrete cold fact

The pope digs population, freedom from taxation
Teeny Bops are uptight, drinking at a stoplight
Miniskirt is flirting I can’t stop so I’m hurting
Spinster sells her hopeless chest

Adultery plays the kitchen, bigot cops non-fiction
The little man gets shafted, sons and monies drafted
Living by a time piece, new war in the Far East
Can you pass the Rorschach test?

It’s a hassle it’s an educated guess.
Well, frankly I couldn’t care less.

 

Hans Rossling, who is a Swedish doctor and statisticien claims that if people who lead us and who vote don’t know things about the world we are living in, then, there is no chance to make good decisions and make the world a better place to live. He says in his winter speach on the swedish radio P1 that most of the people still believe that the world is as it was 30 years ago. But this is wrong obviously. I encourage you to watch this documentary, on gapminders website and compare it with what you think you know: http://www.gapminder.org/videos/dont-panic-the-facts-about-population/

After these words, I don’t need to tell you how my training month went in februari last year. This is so much less important than knowing things about the world that is around us!
