Sometimes I use the internet like an oracle, making me stumble upon an image or a text that I should take in. A message, a sign. An inspiration.

To me this is a happy image, it reminds me of a hilarious moment I had with my son, when he tried to hypnotize me. He was 10 and all over me, trying to hold my stare, whispering in a deep voice “Look into my eyes, look into my eyes..”

There’s something with Paul and Linda, Ringo and Maureen, George and Patty and John and Yoko.

Beatles wifes

PAUL AND LINDA | Stills from the video for Something.

The video of Something by the Beatles is a mix of what looks like homemade film, and shows moments in the early lives of Paul and Linda, Ringo and Maureen, George and Patty and John and Yoko, self directed it looks. A sweet quadruple love song.

Music video has changed.

Ed Ruscha inspired

Ed Ruscha inspired magazine clipping hanging in my dining area

Ed Ruscha inspired, I hesitated writing that down, as I have recently been disappointed to the point of anger after a search for Picasso at the online auction house Catawiki, and was offered a series of Picasso inspired art work.

1948 | 1984 | 2018 | An observation

endless reversal

1948 – 1984 | An image to go with the story

Have you read your 1984 recently? Because I am now listening to a complete and unabridged reading of Orwell’s ghastly classic vision of our world, and what struck me just now

while waiting on YouTube for a song, an ad for Grammarly put up a happy show, about wonderfully improved lives, by simply using the new writing app which makes your writing sound like a smoother and therefor more perfect you. Easy to use. Everybody uses it. 

is the echo of Newspeak in Grammarly. In a way.

 

 

In the ad above you see the software quickly filling in any moment of hesitation, of thinking maybe, (…) making sure everything you type is clear, effective, and mistake-free. What mistakes? They stress that better writing leads to better results. A selection of peoples testify of their better fit in society after using Grammarly. Does this mean, if you let them do the writing, you speak the lingo? 

 

 

(…) Newspeak is a language created to meet ideological requirements (…) Newspeak is a controlled language, of restricted grammar and limited vocabulary, meant to limit the freedom of thought—personal identity, self-expression (…) – Wikipedia

George Orwell wrote his utopian novel 1984 in 1948 and it is all so familiar.

NY Polaroids

Just browsing my images with Bridge.

 

Once I was in New York and instead of pictures I took polaroids. Of everything, every day.

And every evening I put them up on the backboard in our hotel room.

#Bloodmoon over Amsterdam

bloodmoon 2018

Moon and Mars Amsterdam 27072018 | photo wilma tichelaar

Tonight I witnessed the blood moon over Amsterdam. The moon is not as bright as usual as the earth is casting its shadow over the moon located right between the sun and the moon. The only light reflected by the moon is the indirect light bouncing of the atmosphere of earth, hence the soft reddish – not blood red – tone. The little pink dot in the distance is Mars.

The sky seems Disney-like, but then the skyline is very… different.

A once in a lifetime moment.

I took a photo on the roof.

In the distance someone detonated some fireworks.

While downloading the images onto my computer I looked up Twitter to see what other images were taken.

Scrolling down

I saw some were worse,

similar or

NASA-style-better than mine,

and there was also this:

Chorizo joke 11 pm Dutch Twitter

Funny I thought. Tweet says: ” I dare say I have the best picture of the #bloodmoon “. I hearted it.

A few seconds later, scrolling down I came across this one.

Chorizo joke 11 pm Dutch Twitter

Also from a Dutch account, sent in at the same time.

Hmm, same joke same time? Made me wonder, writing came to be at different places around the world at the same time, so yes, could be, same inspiration at the same time.

But then I Googled the image

and soon found out, that the origins of this joke lies in Spain. Naturally.

Google search chorizo moon joke on Twitter July 28 2018 1 am

I should unheart his tweet.
