VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): What I'm about to tell you is always important to keep in mind, but it's especially crucial right now. If you think you're too small and insignificant to have a major impact, you've never spent the night in bed with a mosquito. Let me put it a different way Virgo: In order for you to set in motion all the invigorating, far-reaching changes you now have the potential to initiate, you must believe you are as impossible to fight off as a mosquito in the dark.
Wee Neo is still in Slovakia with Vika! She sends more news and photos of his travels, and I must say that this first one might be my most favorite Wee Neo tour photo ever...
OK, welcome to Bratislava - in the middle of Europe! As we like to say 'Heart of Europe'!
Someone call the town "Beauty on Danube". Well, let's go check it what stays.
Maybe someone knows a waltz "On beauty blue Danube"? Here it looks more like greygreen Danube.
Of course, we start in the middle of old town.
Now it is empty, but this is the right place where the x-mas tree rised in the december. And the building is the Opera-house (Slovak national theatre), they start to build a new one, maybe 20-25 years ago, but after velvet revolution some ministers of culture fall down because of disability to finished or sold it.
This is the old town hall.
And here is the "white house" - presidentīs palace. The flag on the roof means that he is home.
Let's check it closer.
As you can see, president is very safe (or better say enought for us). But wait! There is no red carpet! Is it possible that no one knows about such VIP person as Wee Neo is? Another international faux pas! Better for Wee Neo to travel incognito.
"As I say, everybody is watching and waiting! But today I'm here only for keanuvision.com!"
Another who is watching! Well, this guy we canīt missed out, it is in each guide-book. I spend some time to reach an empty statue :)
Wow! Watcher disapeared!
Strange, also walls can watch!
They told that masks on the walls are for saving before enemies (in medieval times).
Enough of historia, let's go to see some people.
This young lady was so kind and invited me to garden party in her kindergarden!
"This is a really cool 'bike'"
The place was full of princess, fairies, dryads, pirates, knights and other strange beings.
"Wow they sing for me! I want to go closer!"
Almost same as Larry (krix' bass) :)))
Yes!!! This is definitely close enough. Now I can understand why they say that Slovak's girls are marvelous!
* lights are getting dark and subtitle -TO BE CONTINUED- slowly disappears *
Thank you Vika! I can't wait to see where Wee Neo goes next!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Sharks have a bad reputation among many people, but to the native people of the Hawaiian island of Niihau they are *na'aumakua,* guardian spirits. I propose that they serve as your tutelary animal in the coming week, Virgo--protectors and guides that will inspire you to be tough-minded and fully at home as you hang out higher in the food chain than you ever have before.
Ealier this month, JoBlo.com posted some stills from A Scanner Darkly.
There's also a review of the trailer that shows some good expectations over at BlogCritics.
Thanks to POTD for this new still from Thumbsucker and also for the news that the film will be shown at the Toronto International Film Festival this September.
In other news, yes - I'm alive and so is Wee Neo. More from him and Vika in the next day or so. Me? I'm fine, just busy. Happy, but busy.
Wee Neo finally arrived at Vika's place in Bratislava, Slovakia!
He had to see all the beautiful flowers himself.
Vika greeted him with traditional gifts of salt and bread (yum).
And is that vodka there (double yum)?
It looks like he's in the hands of some very fun tour guides.
This is the closest Wee Neo has been to my ancestral homeland (I'm half Serbian) so I'm very excited to see where he goes on his travels with Vika and her family.
Thank you Vika for letting him visit!
It's a film starting two actresses, Nika Politeo and Cleo Dobermann, playing the roles of Keanu and Anthony Kiedis (of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Point Break fame).
Rene, from the kitestramurt page linked above sent me this quote attributed to Keanu, translated from italian VOX mag:
"I was trully amazed when I saw 'Kitestramurt'. Playing me is a hard job, even to myself! But Nika Politeo did a great job, as well as Alessandro Pirico, Cleo Dobermann and Hope DeLount. I think working on 'Kitestramurt' was a huge step in Hope's career. I'm looking forward to work with her next year. It is also a big compliment to be portraited by such a beautiful and talented actress as Nika Politeo, I hope I'm going to meet her this summer as we planned.
I'm not sure what project he's referring to next year, and I can't find a whole lot of info about anyone mentioned (Hope DeLount gets zero results on Google), but I think it's neat that he maybe got a chance to see it. It must be a strange experience seeing someone (not to mention the opposite gender) interpreting you on film.
