第589章 – Sea of Air

::
整個假期都圍繞着《福爾摩斯》地運行;

自年幼接觸這本小說後,定期像訓練一樣重溫一些情節,加上近年不斷地出現各款更新,決定了這個假期的大方向;

因此也遇上了Portugal. The Man – Sea of Air:

It’s came the day we found a sea of air
When we went back nothing was there
It towered so tall it nearly left the ground
Still when we looked nothing was found
There was nothing up there no, no nothing at all
Nothing but space nothing but ground
All the things I want and the things I need
When there’s nothing but stars looking back at me
But, I’ll be brave, I’ll be brave, I’ll be brave
When the timing comes around, I’ll be brave yeah I’ll be brave
Just let me go now
Let me go now
We’ve got the whole world hanging there
In our little sea of air
We’ve got the whole world hanging there
In our little sea of air
We’ve got the whole world just hanging out
We’ve got no seed of doubt
We’ve got the whole world hanging there
When you talk to God about suicide
When you never hear back, I hope you’re still alive
And the part of you that never cared
You can leave it here, we’re in the sea of air
But, I’ll be brave, I’ll be brave, I’ll be brave
When the timing comes around, I’ll be brave yeah I’ll be brave
Just let me go now
We’ve got the whole world hanging there
In our little sea of air
We’ve got the whole world hanging there
In our little sea of air
We’ve got the whole world just hanging out
We’ve got no seed of doubt
We’ve got the whole world hanging there
In our little sea of air
We got the whole world hanging there
In our little sea of air
We got the whole world hanging there
In our little sea of air
We got the whole world hanging there
In our little sea of air
We got the whole world hanging there
In our little sea of air
In our little sea of air
In our little sea of air
In our little sea of air
In our little sea of air
In our little sea of air
In our little sea of air
In our little sea of air
In our little sea of air

第585章 – Bojack Horseman的餘韻

::
的確沒有太多動畫,會有一種餘韻,令人可以在生活中細味,這種獨有的親切,頓然覺得世界不只自己會遇到相同的問題⋯⋯

近年最愛的動畫,莫過於Bojack Horseman,已經去到Season 5,威力仍在;生活總有種說不出的不安,不論是自身,或與人的關係,總是有點有理說不通的狀態,但BH正正誠實地呈現這種忐忑與無助⋯⋯

餘韻,當然包括那些片尾曲,多是來自獨立歌手,除了旋律太合口味,歌詞也相當令人觸動;在哥本哈根的旅途上,在尋找oscar under the bridge的路中,望見一大片海洋,人生未嘗那麼多層次的藍色射進眼球,然後腦袋自動彈出Oberhofer的《Sea of Dreams》,就一直哼着哼着了全日⋯⋯

Kevin Morby的《Parade》,首兩句的溫柔,第一次聽到已經異常地感動,平常生活的確很少有這種安慰和提醒:
//If you come to find out who you are
May you find out, may you find out who you are
And if you come to search for what is lost
Then may you find it, may you find it at any cost//

然後,世界仍然是殘酷的,負能量也可以是一些推動自己的武器,最後是BH的美術指導Lisa Hanawalt的分享,不只是正能量,才令人可以繼續自在地生活⋯⋯

第575章 – 世界盃.蘋果.Daniel Johnston

::
已經有一段很長時間,家裡沒有電視這件電器,對電視廣告的觸覺已經大大減低,但世界盃期間,少不了在直播期間看到某些廣告,最「洗腦」的,竟然是蘋果的新廣告《Behind the Mac》,但不是廣告裡那些人物如何奇怪地使用電腦,而是這首音樂:

Daniel Johnston – The Story Of An Artist

最後在網上搜尋,得知是Daniel Johnston的作品,某程度上似曾相識,原來Kurt Cobain曾經穿過Daniel繪畫的「Hi, How Are You」t恤。再細看其資料,Daniel一直對抗著思覺失調症及躁鬱症,在自己的房間裡,用上最簡單的卡式錄音機,錄製自己的音樂,所以作品多用卡式帶形式推出,近年興起的lo-fi音樂,正正就是模仿這種粗糙音質製作。Daniel作品被譽為「真摯及充滿童真」,筆者正處於苦惱的狀態中,在不停的搜索中,覺得一直有人提醒自己⋯⋯

//The artist walks alone
Someone says behind his back,
“He’s got his gall to call himself that!
He doesn’t even know where he’s at!”
The artist walks among the flowers
Appreciating the sun
He does this all his waking hours
But is it really so wrong?//

最後找到了《Go》,那份鼓勵與幽默,個人是十分喜愛這些簡單和弦的音樂,將他們放於播放樂單中,與joji等連續播放,完全沒有違和感,Daniel Johnston的音樂某程度有點超越了時空⋯⋯

Daniel Johnston – Go

//Life’s a bowl of cherries
You can have as many as you can carry
And someone once said that life was like a cow
But I don’t know how that applies

But anyhow here we are all on this planet
Taking everything for granted
But I think you’ve caught on to something
Don’t let go//

第566章 – 佛系插畫家Evan M. Cohen

近期網上總是佛系什麼什麼,但碰到紐約插畫及漫畫家Evan M. Cohen的作品,實在不能不佩服他對宗教與哲學的深度,網上僅有的資料,略略提及他與焦慮症的對抗*;在美學的追求上,Evan極力用最簡潔、無多餘細節的色塊,與他作品喜愛探討的主旨互相呼應,也反映出他將修讀版畫時工藝,轉化成自身的風格。

更多作品可到:http://www.evanmcohen.com/

由於他的作品延伸底下,再遇上Will Stratton – Manzanita,一句”Oh yeah, I love the way that we grow old”,已經足夠我重播一整晚⋯⋯

近期身邊總是吵吵鬧鬧,願大家在欣賞Evan的作品同時,也找到自身的平靜、或是佛系的自己⋯⋯

第565章 – 雕、click、鋸、彈

::
這個星期,的確異常充實,除了平常的教學,還不停地開新計劃,但從中卻學了不少全新的東西;

1. 木雕:第一次認真處理這個尺寸的作品
2. premiere pro CC:CC突然一個大躍進,尤如從新學習一樣
3. 字體計劃:拖了數年,在無意間撞到了自己喜愛的字款與詞語,決定實行出來
4. ukulele:終於下定決心,最少學一首歌,選了joji

有機會再寫多一點關於worldstar money,但每個項目都好興奮,要加油呢~

第564章 – AUGUST 08

::
youtube的留言真的太過啜核,例如:「就連88rising的保鏢也會唱歌」(取笑AUGUST 08的身型似夜店保安),也大有人研究林寶堅尼車門的正確英文叫法等等⋯⋯

今晚安靜地過,然後仍覺得自己不懂一件樂器是遺憾的事⋯⋯
