Stiod Opinion (envy): Beds instead of cinema seats.

22 Apr

via Malaysia Is the World Leader In Theater Comfort Technology.

I wish the idea was mine so good it is! In fact, in my ignorance it has never ever come to my simpleton mind. Wonder how many of your readers would have had such idea yourselves (answers, please).

Forget all you know about movie theaters and come to a innovative concept of comfort and environment when watching your favorite films. If you were happy with the folding seats in your playhouse, it seems that just as me, you dreamed low. It did not happened to someone inside this cinema chain in Malaysia. The conventional seats give room to exclusive designed bean bag double place seats. And it does not stop there since it has also “a cosy and relaxed viewing experience and has become a favorite among the movie-goers”.

Do you love seating nested to your partner (or kids) when watching a great movie? That’s why you love home theatering?

Cinema seats.

Now you got as well as me, bitten by the jealousy bug. And your film watching life will never be the same, because you know, out there, some people are watching the same film premier as you, in a way cozier room, much more comfortable then your folding seat with place to put soft drink mugs. Wait, I did not see places for my soft drink mugs in those seats.

 I wonder if they rent you warm and nice blankets so you can have that sweet home feeling.

Poliglot (local) radio

Avenida Paulista in Sao Paulo, Brazil

How many foreigners are there in your area?

Perhaps this stiod occurred me because I live in a metropolis, and an afternoon walk through Avenida Paulista allows me to hear lots of other languages around. Why not give this groups the chance to listen to their mother tongue once or twice a day? That is also a way of sharing their culture and decentralizing the music world from EMI, (MTV) EMA, Grammy nominees circles.

Just a listen to the contesters to Eurovision (and the winners some years back) you can see how nice it can be listening songs from other countries, in other languages! Now I have many facebook friends from other countries, and just checking their posts about music reveals great rhythms, nice melodies and so on (Ok I don’t have idea what they are singing about, but it is pleasant).

So, you give foreigners the chance to show their culture, have a news digest in their own language (nice to listen when in traffic, etc.) and to locals to expand their horizon and culture range.

The Radio frequency would be shared by different countries representatives. I believe in some subsidy would help to get kicked off, but latter just selling the schedule and etc. just as a standard radio works.

Stiod Opinion: Eat a woman from “down there” up.

18 Apr

So, if you want to manifest about something, and you represent this with art. That sounds amazing.  This is what an artist did in Sweden. Makode Aj Linde decided to depict the mutilation of African women and wished that Swedish Minister of Culture should start the incision. After the sex of the black caricature was cut by the Minister, people started eating the poor woman, I mean, the black cake with read insides (disgusting!) and partying. A bit more grotesque than mutilation, perhaps… I don’t know…

The text I came across first was in a Swedish website one or two days ago, as I am lazy I am reacting only now.

I cannot classify how stupid the thing can be! No matter the color the artist is.  You cannot eat other people!

So, some more Stiod to artists around the world who want to “provoke”:

  • Hand out rubber fetuses in the churches, so you will fight abortion;
  • Picture naked babies smoking – as a warning that parents should not smoke near their kids;
  • Make a painting with Mohamed kissing the Virgin Mary so you defend peace between Christians and Muslims in the Middle East;
  • Burn buses in order to demonstrate against the lack of public transportation in small towns (learn from Sao Paulo gangs)

You can find a trendy and artistic way of doing so. You can defend yourself a representative of the “grotesque” etc etc etc. People will believe you. Some will applaud, I promise!

By the way, I think the Minister would not make the cake herself and was afraid to be called racist just as she said… I do!

The true you

The truth comes out the children mouth!


Do you want to know what you are like? There are some people you will get the answer from. And they are small and (usually) sweet.

Much fairer than mirror or a personality test. Cheaper than a profile analysis from an image consultant! What makes it better? Purity!

Our perception of the world is blurred since there have been way much information, many opinions, theories, techniques, concepts… that are not in a child’s mind. The lack of advanced (controversial, contrary) concepts, the simplicity and scarcity of resources will bring you much of a truth about how you’re seen out there in the world.

Do you have some children around you? Give them pen, paper and have them to draw you – if they want, needless to say, otherwise you shan’t get it by the way! What you will sure get,  in a couple of (imprecise, perhahps) lines, is what you mean to children. The few resources they have and purity of observation will make them optimally chose the right features who best represent you to their eyes.

Below, you will get some example of description of this person who writes you now, from the children’s hands.

Making your photo collections into an exhibition

15 Apr

Ut pictura poesis,

“As is painting so is poetry.”

Horace’s Ars Poetica

This is a new modality of Stiod. Since it is done upon someones’ experience or idea as a way of enhancing them.

It would work mostly if you are indeed a good photographer – otherwise, do your best. This photographer blogger, just showed some pics that are great, and she uses to take systematically pics of her friends.

The Stiod is to make an exhibition, a photo poetry, as she says she does — and does indeed — with photos classified as poem goes. With emotions or qualities, with properties or situations. How do those photos stand for friendship?

It feels just good all about it! I wish I had such abilities

Enjoy her!
