annadevitt said: I just started reading Yotsuba again and remembered you like it too, so who is your favorite character other than Yotsuba??
Ah you are very attentive!! Yotsuba is indeed my favourite manga ever! What a cute question, as much as I love everyone it has to be Mr Koiwai. I mean, he’s such an awesome dad?? And when I was at uni he was one of the main reasons I wanted to work from home in Japan and live in boxer shorts (both of these goals have been achieved so). He also seems super laid back and isn’t afraid to be just as childlike as Yotsuba.
This is also a very timely ask as well, I’ve been wanting to Get Stronger at slice of life stories a whole lot lately, and I’d love recommendations of good slice of life comics, manga, webcomics etc if you guys have any!
Reblogging this not for “sharing” but for myself to remember. I don’t want this to get lost in my ocean of liked posts.
Those recommendations look amaaaazing
¿Por qué hay tantos modelos diferentes de torres eléctricas? Siendo una construcción con una función tan concreta y unas cualidades a perseguir tan claras… me da la impresión de que debería ser sencillo determinar cuál es el mejor modelo posible, y una vez determinado, ¿por qué no repetir ese modelo hasta la saciedad?
Entiendo que habrá distintos parámetros a valorar en función de la situación del país, por ejemplo el precio de la torre, pero aun así…
El caso es que me gustaría ver un tumblr que se dedicara a recopilar fotos de distintos diseños de torres eléctricas. Pero de las normales, no de esas torres de modernitos hechas de materiales raros o con formas tontas.
Contemporary art - of all sorts, shapes, materials and nakedness - is generally a waste of space/time/air/sweat/body fluids. I honestly thing that its lack of focus, clear purpose and general subjectiveness are just decoys to hide how devoid of proper brain work all of it is.
Those who keep it…
I think it’s all about the idea behind a specific piece of art. I think the idea is so important that it’s what makes some kinds of art (I’m talking about contemporary art I guess. But literature is mainly about ideas, too) be art, and so, it doesn’t even matter that much if you make the idea a physical thing or not! (everything seems to be a gigantic waste of money space and time if you consider the fact that the mere mentioning of what you intended to create is worth almost the same as the physical thing itself!).
There’s a contemporary art museum in my town I like going to, but only on guided visits. If I go by myself I don’t understand anything… maybe a glimpse on a couple where I’ll go “oh, that’s a cool idea”, but not many. But guides tell you a lot of cool ideas behind some art pieces! (While some others remain crappy in my opinion, but everybody’s got different opinions right?) and I like so much some of those ideas that I will defend those pieces even if they aren’t unable to put those ideas in my head by themselves, without the help of the guide. While writing this reply I’ve come to decide that seeing those pieces makes the idea much more easily understood; I mean: they do add something to the ideas. (Though not so much as to justify the waste they represent imho… but hey, if someone pays for it, good for them).
uhhhh this is just a bunch of unpolished raw thoughts because I’m in a bit of a hurry but I really want to reply or else I’m afraid I might never do so because I’ll forget about it.
I recommend this book/comic/whateveritis to anybody who doesn’t “get” contemporary art; it’s amazing and charming and funny. The author narrates how he sees the work of some big artists and why he likes them or doesn’t in a very simple and humble way. www.livrariasaraiva.com.br/produto/5244257
