Support Art!  

I would like to show you a videoclip that started out merely as promotion of European cinema but has already attracted an inordinate amount of controversy. Why? Just watch:





These scenes are taken from critically acclaimed films, and yet some people are calling the video "porn" and protesting against it.

So, this post is meant just to demonstrate my support of free artistic expression. It's high time everybody realized that quality does not directly depend on content.



PS: If the icon I am currently using seems familiar to you when you watch the clip, then yes, that's it. Enjoy!

I wasn't as smart as you at that time. *g*
Being in high-school was a torture for me. I was really glad when it was all over. I guess being a teenager implies being in a group, and I didn't belong to any - of so, it was the manga club. ;)

Well, as far as I know, her son is asthmatic right now and has a lot of problems as for breathing. How surprising. I was so shocked when I saw her smoking though she was pregnant! many women just stop smoking when they bear a child, of course, knowing what could happen to the fetus...
Yes, I think that smoking is an idiotic habit.

Oh, I'll be more than happy when this whole high school ordeal is over for me, too! I think you're right about the issue with having to be in some group, which of course is something I just won't do unless it's a group I actually want to be in. The more 'popular' people at school tend to expect everyone to adore them, I guess. Yeah, right. *rolls eyes*

Ugh, I could bet that now she realizes what a stupid thing it was to smoke during pregnancy. It's awful that her own habit (probably) ended up causing her son such serious problems with his health. I can understand she if was stressed at the time...but then she shouldn't have had the child at all. I don't judge smoking as long as it doesn't harm others that much, but this really is horrible...

The way societe works is funny. See, at school, some depend on their popularity because they must belong to the right group, and if they go to uni, this pattern is broken...
But then once they've got a job, it's starting all over again! I had a bad experience on a very specific job, and the high school nightmare started all over again!

If only it wasn't all about her, I wouldn't care about her smoking. But her son... just because of her.. just because she wasn't willing to stop! that's so stupid and immature.

So true. I've been told it would be the same as in high school in most jobs and that I should just "shut up and blend in" or something. Well, it's really no wonder if people get so used to this same bloody pattern at school! For now, I'm just looking forward to finally going to university. Who knows what will come afterwards...

Yeah, I think you're right about that. Another reason why people just shouldn't have kids at any cost. How does she expect to take care of an asthmatic son now?

Ah, the infamous blending among the herd? This is definitely not something someone should ask to an artist. ;))

... and with a husband at that time who'd rather play video games than looking for a real job. Poor, poor kid!

Mwahaha, I fully agree with that! Herds are not for me, either. xD

Oh my, that family is honestly made of failure. Not that there's anything wrong with video games, but still.
remeciel: Lilyremeciel on July 17th, 2007 08:10 pm (UTC)
yes, we'd rather look like the black sheep of the herd. *g*

Oh, I do love video games a lot...
... But he wasn't a very responsible man at all. :/

And we'd be actually enjoying that situation by the looks of it. ^_^

Having a kid with a nineteen-year-old doesn't really speak of responsibility, that's right. He should have just stuck with the video games, eh? XD

I really don't know if he would have really taken care of his son. I remember having seen the mother after she gave birth, and the kid was all right - but she let him do whatever he wanted to...

Some people just aren't responsible enough to clean up their own mess, I suppose. So the kid lives only with his mother now?
remeciel: Hokutoremeciel on July 25th, 2007 09:31 am (UTC)
I have no idea what's going on in her life and her child's. I really don't care. *gg*

Oh, that's just as well. XD
