Scream

The human voice is the first, the primal organ: We can hum, shout, whisper, scream, speak, follow given rhythms or letting it flow free, high low and all in between. As a kid I was able to produce a very high, sharp, bird-like cry/noise that could be heard over some hundred meters; it was useful in the forests just as in the city.
Sometimes it can be very good to go out on the countryside and shout, just letting out frustration and anger by roaring: Makes the throat rough, but helps with the blood-pressure, best with throwing something around. When you put on black leather clothing it is possibly a little like attending a metal-concerto …
This week’s catch is the “Introduction to Mieskuoro Huutajat“, the “Men’s Choir The Shouters”, who performs for 20 years now. They have a colorful repertoire from finnish traditionals to classical pieces. Under “Audio and Video” you find examples of their art. I deeply regret that I could not attend their last concerto held in Warsaw on 2nd of June at the Finlandia Vodka Event, I am sure it was worth it: As I was told the conductor levitates regularly.

A reddish moon comes up like a fruit, one could grab this orange.
The week flew by. Looking on the to-be-done-list from Monday I have to accept that just two topics are solved, the rest … It was a busy week, filling forms, talking to personal-managers, writing applications, something has to happen.
The next days hot weather is forecasted, time to ride a bicycle, to photograph and to forget troubles.

Charles Fort was an un-orthodox american writer.
Alfred William Lawson was an un-orthox american … man. He led a colorful live and besides anything that is to be said about this man: He was original, he really worked for his fellow man, and he made a good figure in a senate’s hearing in the beginning fifties – that is more than can be said about a lot of his contemporaries that had the pity to come in such a situation! Remarkable exceptions were Bogart and Hammett (!).
I came about his studies in Lawsonomy by chance and later learned that his university is still in existence. I found this site to be the best collection of links regarding Alfred Lawson, although I have no idea what this “squidoo”-thing is about.
Lawson is clearly a mad man, but – as I see it – of the loving, caring, doing-no-harm kind. So go and learn about Lawsonomy!
