Of magic potions, poetry, love and sciences... and memory...

butterfly

A poem of Arthur Rimbaud (translated from the French by George Bitzolot, adapted by Jules Letambour)


For her

Dreamed for winter...

Winter... We’ll travel in a small pink buggy

         With some blue cushions.

We'll be happy. A nest for kisses in motion

          In ever corner comfy.

 

You will close your eyes, not to see in the mirror

The shadows of the night pulling faces

If you are a multinational in search of a deal, your philosophy may be very close to that of the Anarchists manifesto. Read the picture above:

home invasion...

the lot

I don't know if I should mention this... It's the home invasion of dumb artificial intelligence.

We have the car that talks and the TomTom that tells you "where to go". But then one has to think of people who are lonely or disabled. These devices, mentioned, lampooned and adopted by the GRUEN team of experts, last night on ABC/TV, Alexa by Amazon, and others such as by Google and Apple, are designed to respond to your command in your home — actually make sure you're awake, awake, awake as you live your now excitingly product-managed life. There is a lot of cash to be made from this device, not for you but for whoever is selling you pizza, pineApple and lightbulbs. And the machine cares about you. You are important to the machine.
