Música para um sábado qualquer | That's Entertainment - The Jam

That's Entertainment
The Jam

A police car and a screaming siren -
A pnuematic drill and ripped up concrete -
A baby wailing and stray dog howling -
The screech of brakes and lamplights blinking -
that's entertainment.
A smash of glass and the rumble of boots -
An electric train and a ripped up 'phone booth -
Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat -
Lights going out and a kick in the balls -
that's entertainment.
Days of speed and slow time Mondays -
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday -
Watching the news and not eating your tea -
A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls -
that's entertainment.
Waking up at 6 a.m. on a cool warm morning -
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol -
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard -
Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays -
that's entertainment.
Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes -
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume -
A hot summers' day and sticky black tarmac -
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were faraway -
that's entertainment.
Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight -
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude -
Getting a cab and travelling on buses -
Reading the grafitti about slashed seat affairs -
that's entertainment.

Glamour Underground

O fotógrafo americano Steven Klein, que é super ovacionado e aplaudido no mundinho fashionista, costuma ser o preferido da rainha do pop. Mas seu trabalho vai, na minha opinião, muito além dos clipes musicais e ensaios de moda que ele faz que já são incríveis. Logo na abertura do seu site você se depara com o vídeo Brad Pitt study #1. Violência, insanidade, sofrimento, psicose são palavras que se encaixam perfeitamente ali.
Atualmente ele está fazendo o novo clipe da Lady Gaga, Alejandro. Vale a pena navegar no site para conhecer mais a fundo seu impressionante trabalho.

"Portraiture in the past has been regarded as a documentation of a person but for me it is a documentation of the encounter between myself and the subject. It is not meant to reveal them, nor is it meant to subject them to an X-ray; it is a departure from that. I am more interested in the alchemical reaction that occurs when elements are brought together in a space." (Klein, Steven)
