Woody Allen: «The Gossage—Vardebedian Papers»

13 Jul

Click to enlarge completely checkmatedly

Searching for a small reference giving our readers a little idea of what Woody Allen’s «The Gossage—Vardebedian Papers» are all about we could not believe our eyes having found the complete text, which was originally published in The New Yorker, January 22, 1966. Surely a serious case of Copyright infringement – as long as Woody Allen does not call himself Max Wolf.

To undo this matter a little bit we like to point out that Woody Allen’s book «Complete Prose» is still available. We are almost certain that you might like to consider buying one copy of his outstanding masterpiece of work.

A short quote: «Gossage:

Received the letter this morning containing your forty-fifth move (your knight captures my queen?), and also your lengthy explanation regarding the mid-September ellipsis in our correspondence. Let me see if I understand you correctly. Your knight, which I removed from the board weeks ago, you now claim should be resting on the king’s fourth square, owing to a letter lost in the mail twenty-three moves ago. I was not aware that any such mishap had occurred, and remember distinctly your making a twenty-second move, which I think was your rook to the queen’s sixth square, where it was subsequently butchered in a gambit of yours that misfired tragically.»

As we already said: You should seriously consider to buying one copy of his outstanding masterpiece of work.

The image above we took from the site A Greek Girl In Glasgow. Should Woody Allen ever get notice the special way the greek girl in Glasgow presents herself while reading his book he would be – we are almost certain – quite amused.

Sao Paulo: Intelligenter und origineller Telefonieren

11 Aug

Auch von Woody Allen wird das Telefonzellenmodell
Stanley Kubrick in Sao Paulo immer wieder gerne genutzt

In einer Zeit, da wegen der Mobiltelefonitis das gute, gepflegte und auch irgendwie standortbestimmende Gespräch über beispielsweise eine gute, gepflegte und auch geglückte Organtransplantation zwischen kulitivierten Menschen immer schwieriger geworden ist, ist es schön zu wissen, daß es nicht nur die Brasilianer waren, die erstmals eine Millionenstadt, nämlich Sao Paulo, prinzipiell zur werbefreien Zone erklärten sondern sie sich nun irgendwie ebenfalls verpflichtet fühlen, einen Schritt weiter zu gehen und die zentrale Rolle des werbefreien Gehirns bei der Kommunikation in ihr in den Blickpunkt des öffentlichen Interesses zu rücken.

Ed Walker says on his flickr-account: «Woody Allen filming some scenes at the Blue Finn Building where I work on Bankside in London.»

On his personal website he writes: «Hi I’m Ed Walker, a Graphic Designer and Photographer living and working in London, United Kingdom. By day I am a Digital Designer for Immediate Media, by night I am a masked avenger hunting down the scum of the ci… oh hold on that supposed to be a secret. In my spare time I enjoy shooting street photography, city landscapes and the occasional portrait.»

If Woody Allen had made «Taxi Driver»

16 Mar

Woody Allen’s dialog from «Hannah and Her Sisters» is inserted into this scene from «Taxi Driver», with Robert De Niro and Cybill Shepherd and it works brilliantly.

Artistic Interpretations of City Skylines

16 Jul

London: (c) Copyright by Carl Warner

San Francisco: (c) Copyright by Liz Hickok

The magazine Woman’sDay (Live Well Every Day) has published some artistic interpretations of famous city skylines. Here are two of them, which were created with food. The two brillant artists Liz Hickok and Carl Warner are responsible for them. Just visit their websites and you know what I mean.

Honouring this year’s summer heat Woman’sDay provides its readers with a small recommendation of how to handle it best, when your mouse crosses the word cucumber. Here’s the screenshot. Just allow yourself a proper click:

Let me grab this unique opportunity to feed you with a real philosophical line (by Woody Allen) which containes the word cucumber and honours this year’s summer heat, from my point of view, at the very same time: “Cool as a cucumber the carrot penetrates the pedestrian to make his padding immortal.” Ha, like it? Thought so.
