“La cúspide de las series que se presentan en la muestra es, probablemente, la que abre la exposición: las imágenes dedicadas a los niños y sus juegos. Predomina la tinta; los blancos aparecen como sutiles nervios para conformar la acción con un curioso efecto tenebroso que contrasta con el candor (o supuesto tal) de las escenas, que son todas campestres, involucran a menudo la relación con animales y están liberadas, así como no lo están en ciertos paisajes, de las ataduras de la iconografía del género.”



The Utah Noodle Parlor That’s Seemingly All Over ‘Blade Runner’

“The dragon sign, a constant presence in Blade Runner, is crucial to the pulpy world where Deckard and other denizens of this futuristic L.A. reside. Yet the neon guardian bears a striking resemblance to an iconic dragon that’s presided over Ogden, Utah’s historic 25th Street since the 1940s. In a 2007 Blade Runner featurette, the film’s production illustrator, Tom Southwell, mentions that he was struck by an image of a dragon in a book of neon art, which inspired the one in Blade Runner. In real life, a neon dragon towers over an Ogden storefront that formerly housed The Star Noodle Parlor, a Chinese restaurant owned by the Ryujins, a Japanese family.”


Tu conflicto es un bajón

“De lector entusiasta de Foucault a la filosofía del entusiasmo y la felicidad. De guionista de la contracultura en los ‘90 a asesor ideológico de Cambiemos. La transformación personal de Alejandro Rozitchner también permite leer mutación de las coordenadas culturales de la Argentina. Cómo piensa el hombre que, junto a Macri, imagina un país poscatólico, posideológico, sin conflicto, donde la creatividad y la tolerancia produzcan una sociedad mejor.”

Donald Glover Can’t Save You

“Is there anything you’re bad at? “To be honest, no. Probably just people. People don’t like to be studied, or bested.” He shrugged. “I’m fine with it. I don’t really like people that much. People accept me now because I have power, but they still think, Oh, he thinks he’s the golden flower of the black community, thinks he’s so different.” He laughed. “But I am, though! I feel like Jesus. I do feel chosen. My struggle is to use my humanity to create a classic work—but I don’t know if humanity is worth it, or if we’re going to make it. I don’t know if there’s much time left.””180305_r31587ab


The Special Stew at the Heart of Sumo Wrestling

“Instead, it is the way chanko stew is consumed that makes it a cornerstone of sumo dining. An ordinary person might have one or two bowls of chanko. Wrestlers, meanwhile, skip breakfast to work up an appetite, then regularly eat as many as ten bowls for lunch, washed down with copious amounts of beer. All that chanko is converted into extra bulk by taking a hard-earned nap straight after lunch. As David Benjamin writes in Sumo: A Thinking Fan’s Guide to Japan’s National Sport: “When you’re a sumo wrestler, you get to live in a clubhouse where no girls are allowed. You’re encouraged to eat all you want and have ‘thirds’ on dessert. You nap all afternoon, and drink beer all night.” Matches are a few seconds long—you’ll never be late for dinner—and held in a comfortable, climate-controlled environment.”Sumo Wrestlers Practise Prior To The Next Tournament
