I was watching TV on my own on the couch and saw the ad for the new Max Payne 3 game. I have no interest in the game because I'm crap and can't play that kind of stuff. The soundtrack caught my attention... I thought I recognised the sound from somewhere and I immediately thought of HEALTH. I was right. The track in question is called Tears. I really like HEALTH and I'd love to see them live because they must be awesome. I wish I could have seen them opening for NIN... sigh!
This is Die Slow :)

I hurt my back badly and I haven't been able to move my neck for a week... The worst thing is that I cannot sleep because I can't get comfortable :(
I went to the Natural Clinic on Brewer Street for acupuncture and shiatsu. I had needles all over (see an example below...)

I feel a bit better, but I need to go back. They said that it is going to take a bit longer for my back to heal... I'm stuck, exhausted and bored. I hate it when I'm ill and cannot function properly.
They sent me home with microneedles in my hands and elbows. They are painless, but effective. They just look a bit funny.

She said it's cold out here
won't you let me in?
We've been in this rain for hours
you haven't said a thing.
And why do all the things have to change
just when they mean the most?
She said why do al the things have to change
just when they mean the most?
It always happens that way
It always happens that way.

I went down to the Wellcome Collection to see their new exhibition "Brains: The mind as Matter". I had to queue up for about 20 minites to get in... First time ever! I usually walk straight in.

The exhibition was very interesting. It featured pictures, artefacts, books, artworks and real brains. I got hypnotised by a video about trepanning and a bit disturbed by one on ECT. I also got intrigued by the two books below by Antonio Damasio. I couldn't choose between the two and couldn't afford buying both... dilemma!


 After the exhibition my own brain needed a break and some sugar ;)

I wore my new swans skirt today for the first time. I think it's really cute. Not a brainy quote to end, but hey!

Argh! I want to go back to Japan!!!

"Jeder Mensch ist ein Abgrund, es schwindelt einem, wenn man hinabsieht" *

In his latest documentary Werner Herzog investigates the reasons behind why people kill and why a state kills. He explores a triple homicide case in Conroe, Texas not describing the mere facts but, in his own words, focusing on the truth of death and also of life. Herzog achieves what he describes as “a gaze into the abyss of the human soul" through intimate conversations with various people involved in the case, including Michael Perry eight days prior his execution by lethal injection, the families of the victims and of the perpetrators and a state executioner; each party with very different yet truthful outlooks on life, society and death.
Herzog is one of my heroes, a living legend. This was my second Q&A with him and, as usual, everything he had to say was so interesting and fascinating. His ability of elaborating and explaining really difficult concepts in the most natural and eloquent way never ceases to amaze me. I could listen to him talking for hours!

Whether you are or you were a goth, you'll find this video extremely funny and it will remind you for sure of somoene you know/knew (or maybe even of yourself?!). If you don't know anything about goths, well... your loss! Haha! Just joking. Just watch and have a laugh... Goths are not all that depressing ;)
