Třebaže na tomto blogu obvykle svoji tvorbu nezveřejňuji, teď udělám výjimku a vybírám tři básně s tématem noční oblohy... ******************************************************

Organický vesmír 

Noc
zárodečná mlhovina
se převaluje
jsou tam
oceán jedu i hory ohně
horko a tlak
tvoření
je tam
vířící kosmický prach
co zasypává naše hlavy
nepozorován
světlo rozpuštěné v nejhlubších
                             hlubinách
počátek i konec
v jediném okamžiku
jiskřící opona
mezi světy
a časem.


Nekonečnost


Nekonečnost vesmíru
více než romantika
vystijují zdánlivé paradoxy:
plynný kámen
hořící led
nepřetržitý výbuch
vroucí oceán jedu.

Vzdálenost a nepostižitelnost
nehmatatelného
ve kterých se zrnko života
v jednom jejiném jejím bodu
zdá jako neskutečně vzácná
božská jiskra
uprostřed nicoty.

Stejně tak já hledám
zrnko lidskosti
v nekonečných nepřehledných pláních
temného chaosu a zmaru.

Neonová noc


Barevné drahokamy blikají do černé noci,
světýlka na palubní desce
-  kolikrát už jsem musela žít
nebo to bylo už v této mojí existenci? 
Vzpomínky splývají se snem,
elektrické kytary zvoní do městské noci,
jak rádiové vlny v černočerném prostoru,
stejně reálné i iluzorní,
vylaďujeme, chytáme zářící duhové paprsky života
v temnotě nebytí hluchého vesmíru,


třpytivé kapky enthusiasmu odlétají
do zapomenutí noci,
ale nové stále někde vznikají,
znovu, znovu -

Výstava o Beatles se možná zopakuje v Brně, muzeum o ni stojí

22. ledna 2011 v 21:13 | Alice B. |  aktuálně

Brno - Úspěšnou pražskou výstavu Beatlemánie! o legendární britské kapele Beatles a jejích stopách v české kultuře si možná prohlédnou i lidé v Brně. Moravské zemské muzeum (MZM) jedná s pražským Národním muzeem o možné zápůjčce. Beatlemánie! by mohla být reciproční výstavou za velkolepou expozici Poklady Moravy v nové budově Národního muzea, na jejíž přípravě se značnou měrou podílelo právě MZM. ČTK to dnes řekla mluvčí brněnského muzea Eva Pánková.

Už při přípravách Pokladů Moravy se počítalo s tím, že do Brna na oplátku zavítá některá z pražských výstav. Dosud však není jisté, která to bude. "Máme víc nabídek. Byli bychom rádi, kdyby to byla právě výstava o Beatles," uvedla Pánková.

Expozici Beatlemánie! si od loňského června do začátku letošního roku prohlédlo v Českém muzeu hudby 26.000 lidí. Kvůli návštěvnickému zájmu ji Národní muzeum prodloužilo až do letošního dubna. Jedním z lákadel jsou čtyři voskové figuríny členů Beatles vypůjčené z muzea v Liverpoolu. Návštěvníci výstavy si také mohou sami vyzkoušet, jak se natáčelo na kotoučový magnetofon, jak se mixovala hudba nebo jak fungovaly jukeboxy ze 60. let minulého století.

Summer Of Love

15. ledna 2011 v 11:30 | Alice B. |  hnutí hippies

The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon that occurred during summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people converged on the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco, creating a cultural and political rebellion. While hippies also gathered in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Seattle, Portland, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, and across Europe, San Francisco was the center of the hippie revolution, a melting pot of music, psychoactive drugs, sexual freedom, creative expression, and politics. The Summer of Love became a defining moment of the 1960s, as the hippie counterculture movement came into public awareness. This unprecedented gathering of young people is often considered to have been a social experiment, because of alternative lifestyles that became common, both during the summer itself and during subsequent years. These lifestyles included communal living; the free and communal sharing of resources, often among total strangers; and free love.
Ironically, the summer of 1967 also saw some of the worst violence in US cities in the country's history - this was because of the race riots that occurred in places such as Detroit and Newark. This aspect of the summer of 1967 is often called "The Long, Hot Summer". The cause of this violence is generally attributed to racial discrimination against African-Americans and the frustration and anger it inspired in black people.

***********************************************************************************
Early 1967
Inspired by the Beats of the Fifties, who declared themselves independent from the alleged 'authoritarian order' of America, the Haight-Ashbury 'anti-community' rested on a rejection of American commercialism. Haight residents eschewed the material benefits of modern life, encouraged by the distribution of free food and organized shelter by the Diggers, and the creation of institutions such as the Free Clinic for medical treatment. Psychedelic drug use became but one means to find a 'new reality'. Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir comments:
'Haight Ashbury was a ghetto of bohemians who wanted to do anything - and we did but I don't think it has happened since. Yes there was LSD. But Haight Ashbury was not about drugs. It was about exploration, finding new ways of expression, being aware of one's existence.'
The prelude to the Summer of Love was the Human Be-In at Golden Gate Park on January 14, 1967, which was produced and organized by artist Michael Bowen as a "gathering of tribes". The event was announced by the Haight-Ashbury's own psychedelic newspaper, the San Francisco Oracle.
"A new concept of celebrations beneath the human underground must emerge, become conscious, and be shared, so a revolution can be formed with a renaissance of compassion, awareness, and love, and the revelation of unity for all mankind."
The gathering of approximately 30,000 like-minded people made the Human Be-In the first event that confirmed there was a viable hippie scene.
The term "Summer of Love" originated with the formation of the Council for the Summer of Love in the spring of 1967 as response to the convergence of young people on the Haight-Ashbury district. The Council was composed of The Family Dog, The Straight Theatre, The Diggers, The San Francisco Oracle, and approximately twenty-five other people, who sought to alleviate some of the problems anticipated from the influx of people expected in the summer. The Council supported the Free Clinic and organized housing, food, sanitation, music and arts, and coordination with local churches and other social groups.

Popularization through media and music
The ever-increasing numbers of youth making a pilgrimage to the Haight-Ashbury district alarmed the San Francisco authorities, whose public stance was that they would keep the hippies away. Adam Kneeman, a long-time resident of the Haight-Ashbury, recalls that the police did little to help; organization of the hordes of newcomers fell to the overwhelmed residents themselves.
College and high-school students began streaming into the Haight during the spring break of 1967. San Francisco's government leaders, determined to stop the influx of young people once schools let out for the summer, unwittingly brought additional attention to the scene, and an ongoing series of articles in local papers alerted the national media to the hippies' growing numbers. By spring, Haight community leaders responded by forming the Council of the Summer of Love, giving the word-of-mouth event an official-sounding name.
The mainstream media's coverage of hippie life in the Haight-Ashbury drew the attention of youth from all over America. Hunter S. Thompson labeled the district "Hashbury" in The New York Times Magazine, and the activities in the area were reported almost daily.
The movement was also fed by the counterculture's own media, particularly the San Francisco Oracle, whose pass-around readership topped a half-million at its peak that year.
The media's fascination with the "counterculture" continued with the Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967, where approximately 30,000 people gathered for the first day of the music festival, with the number swelling to 60,000 on the final day. The song "San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)" written by John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas and sung by Scott McKenzie was initially designed to promote the Monterey Pop Festival:

"If you're going to San Francisco,
be sure to wear some flowers in your hair...
If you're going to San Francisco,
You're gonna meet some gentle people there.

"
"San Francisco" became an instant hit (#4 in the U. S., #1 in the UK) and quickly transcended its original purpose by popularizing an idealized image of San Francisco. In addition, media coverage of the Monterey Pop Festival facilitated the Summer of Love, since large numbers of fledgling hippies headed to San Francisco to hear their favorite bands, among them the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Otis Redding, The Byrds, and Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin.

Event

During the Summer of Love, as many as 100,000 young people from around the world flocked to San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district, as well as to nearby Berkeley and to other San Francisco Bay Area cities, to join in a popularized version of the hippie experience. Free food, free drugs and free love were available in Golden Gate Park, a Free Clinic (whose work continues today) was established for medical treatment, and a Free Store gave away basic necessities to anyone who needed them.
The Summer of Love attracted a wide range of people of various ages: teenagers and college students drawn by their peers and the allure of joining a cultural utopia; middle-class vacationers; and even partying military personnel from bases within driving distance. The Haight-Ashbury could not accommodate this rapid influx of people, and the neighborhood scene quickly deteriorated. Overcrowding, homelessness, hunger, drug problems, and crime afflicted the neighborhood. Many people left in the fall to resume their college studies.
On October 6, 1967, those remaining in the Haight staged a mock funeral, "The Death of the Hippie" ceremony, to signal the end of the played-out scene. Mary Kasper explained the message of the mock funeral as follows:
"

We wanted to signal that this was the end of it, don't come out. Stay where you are! Bring the revolution to where you live. Don't come here because it's over and done with.
"
eeeee

Legacy

When the newly-recruited Flower Children returned home, they brought new ideas, ideals, behaviors, and styles of fashion to many major cities in the U.S., Canada, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.
The phrase "Summer of Love" (or, more accurately, the "Second Summer of Love") is sometimes used (particularly in the UK) to refer to the summers of 1988 and 1989 and the rise of Acid House music and rave culture. On September 2, 2007, San Francisco celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love. The 40th anniversary was also celebrated at various locations in the UK including Hawkhurst in Kent, where a small mini-festival was held on 07/07/07. The special guest that day was Barry Melton, "the Fish" of Country Joe and the Fish fame.
