“Tonight” By Rufus

“Tonight”
By Rufus

And tonight
We’re coming alive
The dead are arising
The night is coming to life

I’m kicking around day by day
I’m losing my mind every Sunday
I try to look back in my shade
I’m over my head in the moon

I feel it coming in
The storm coming out
The temperature within
Is cooling me down
I hear them creeping in
They’re calling me out
The colder warning is freaking me out

And tonight
We’re coming alive
The dead are arising
The night is coming to life

I’m tripping up walls, over bones
The look in my eyes everyone knows
A quivering light, a distant glow
Taking my breath, and it goes

I feel it coming in
The storm coming out
The temperature within
Is cooling me down
I hear them creeping in
They’re calling me out
The colder warning is freaking me out
Is freaking me out

And tonight
We’re coming alive
The dead are arising
The night is coming to life

Painted Stop Motion Body Art - Schmoulianoff

Painted is an experiment in stop motion face & body painting that plays with the idea of giving paint it’s own life and personality on a living canvas. The whole project was initially inspired by MUTO – the incredible stop motion graffiti video by BLU.

Imagined, painted, modelled, photographed & edited by Elvis Schmoulianoff

Music: Flow Motion by Square One

Everything was photographed in my bedroom in late 2012/early 2013 with a point and shoot camera , natural light, a pile of paints & body paints, brushes and a mirror over a period of 10 days. The final sequence contains footage from five of those days and is comprised of 1064 individual images, the rest was mainly retakes of the first minute which all taught me valuable lessons in what not to do…

Painted was inspired by some amazing artists and the video is a little homage to their outstanding talent and a thank you for the smiles and wonder it has given me. Jean-Michel Basquiat’s fantastic body of work, Fritz Lang’s impressionist masterpiece Metropolis and the sumptuous makeup art of Alex Box all served as fantastic visual inspiration, Blu’s stop-motion graffiti inspired the concept itself and the sheer ingenuity and borderless creativity of LA based artist A Dandypunk and England’s Happy Slap Boutique gave me the push to embark on a new creative adventure on my own.

“A Thousand Kisses Deep”

“A Thousand Kisses Deep”

Poem Written & Read by Leonard Cohen

Post by Jennifer Kiley

Post Saturday 12th July 2014

 

Sony – Two Worlds

“That’s What I Heard You Say”
Original Poem Written & Read by Leonard Cohen

Don’t matter if the road is long
Don’t matter if it’s steep
Don’t matter if the page is gone
It’s written that we’ll meet.
I loved you when you opened
like a lily to the heat
and I love you when it closes
a thousand kisses deep.

I know you had to lie to me
I know you had to cheat
You learned it on your father’s knee
and at your mother’s feet.
But did you have to fight your way
across the burning street
where all our vital interests lay
a thousand kisses deep…

[the rest of poem below is Not on video]

Don’t matter if you’re rich and strong
Don’t matter if you’re weak
Don’t matter if you write a song
The nightingales repeat
Don’t matter if it’s nine to five
Or timeless and unique
You ditch your life to stay alive
A thousand kisses deep

I hear their voices in the wine
That sometimes did me seek
The band is playing Auld Lang Syne
But the heart will not retreat
There’s no forsaking what you love
No existential leap
As witnessed here in time and blood
A thousand kisses deep

“Say Goodbye To Love”
By Madison Taylor
2nd December 2008

Say goodbye to love
The hardest pain to feel
Being left alone in the dark
Lovers and friends
Always heading a way
Scattering the fields of earth
Planting ideas for nurturing
Watching their future grow
Into tomorrow’s perspectives

The present is fulfilling
Gorging on imagination
A pathway forward
Overflowing and inviting
The Muse a constant inspiration

Follow her serendipitously
A yet unsculpted “Angel”
Crying out to be released
Only wanting to be protective
A Guardian to serve what she believes

Giving guidance and understanding
Listen for the quiet in her voice
Nothing to fear in the mysterious
Often the unknown is more secure
Than the known that causes pain

“Get Out of My Head”
By Madison Taylor
25th November 2008

Get out of my head
You’re invading my space
Don’t like people
Getting up in my face
It’s a disgrace
To be so blown away
While life treats the delicate
Like they’re a disease
No sympathy please

People starving
Some living in peace
Excess food remaining
Governments complaining
Where’s the human generosity
When all could partake
In the grandest feast
If the world learned sharing
Hope ain’t filled with caring
We’re keenly in need of serenity
So Peace will abound

I feel the pressure’s back inside my head
Seeing how futility feeds the rage
Depending on “them”
The strangers of kindness”
Not knowing who’s giving
Wanting to believe in Hope
Where there is none
Smile when all I see is sadness

Death waits patiently
So we need overwhelmingly
To believe the darkness will fade
And the light will find its way
