We Had Run Out of Infinity

"How vulgar, this hankering after immortality. How vain, how false. Composers are merely scribblers of cave paintings. One writes music because winter is eternal, and because, if one didn't, the wolves and blizzards would be at one's throat all the sooner."

TEENAGE - Um documentário de Matt Wolf, baseado no livro de Jon Savage “Teenage: The Creation of Youth Culture (1875-1945)”. Download do filme completo:http://bit.ly/U775zv (torrent). Recomendado!"Teenagers didn’t always exist. They had to be invented. As the cultural landscape around the world was thrown into turmoil during the industrial revolution, and with a chasm erupting between adults and youth, the concept of a new generation took shape. Whether in America, England, or Germany, whether party-crazed Flappers or hip Swing Kids, zealous Nazi Youth or frenzied Sub-Debs, it didn’t matter – this was a new idea of how people come of age. They were all “Teenagers.”A hypnotic rumination on the genesis of youth culture from the end of the 19th century to the first half of the 20th, TEENAGE is a living collage of rare archival material, filmed portraits, and diary entries read by Jena Malone, Ben Whishaw, and others. Set to a a shimmering contemporary score by Bradford Cox (Deerhunter / Atlas Sound), TEENAGE is a mesmerizing trip into the past and a riveting look at the very idea of “coming-of-age.”http://www.teenagefilm.com/COMPARTILHAR / SHARE

some of you may recognize this (not-actually-a) hotel window

Ben Whishaw, Two Poems by Pablo Neruda
The Poetica podcast

professorfangirl:

Ben Whishaw reading two poems by Pablo Neruda, “Ode to the Sea” and “Love Sonnet LXXVII.”

Death is only the stone of oblivion.
I love you. Into your mouth I kiss happiness.
Let’s gather firewood. Let’s light a fire on the mountain.

(My edit from the Poetica podcast “Tides.”)

E. A. Poe, "Annabel Lee"
Read by Ben Whishaw

professorfangirl:

Ben Whishaw reading “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe. I’ve never heard the strange, tender, spooky heart of it quite so clearly.
