Say Africa; Africa, Africa Feb 3, 2015

Of God.
Of mercy.

Of the calling
and called.
The veiled
and the blessed.

Of you,
the continuing perfection,
the servant.

The passing
of the pages
that burned
of the cities
that burned
of the lovers God sent.

Line of soldiers
trying to forget
etches of history.
Say Africa: Africa, Africa.

Say millions drowned
their feet shaking
our silence.
Africa, Africa...
Of malady.
Of malice.
Of melody,
of prayer.

Or I can go to some party and watch TV eating 7 layer bean dip....  I'll take the play. (Nothing against bean dip, I love bean dip.)

Step Inside the Camera Obscura: Mariano Pensotti’s Cineastas Feb 1, 2015

Standing on a typically cobbled San Telmo street corner in Buenos Aires, I unintentionally stumble upon Bar Sur, the milonga eternalized on screen to quite ambient effect by the presence of a careening Ho Po-Wing (Leslie Cheung) in Wong Kar-Wai’s Happy Together.
