English Version | You Know You Love Me

It was nine years ago that we said goodbye to Gossip Girl, but a cultural reset like that doesn't go away lightly. Nostalgia has lingered throughout. Surprise: the series, and its universe, are back, with new characters and storylines. Does this mean a comeback to the urge to gossip? Ah, wait. The gossip never went anywhere. That's what we talked about with Jordan Alexander, one of the leads in the long awaited reboot.

English Version | A summer of...

... euphoria, inertia, and a lot of sexyness. If we could choose only three moods for summer, these would be ones, because they represent (very well) what we feel during the silly season.

English Version | To Be Continued: The Nonsense issue

A toaster with crumbs. Used underwear. A toilet paper roll with Donald Trump's face. A car with no engine... The list could go on, there are so many completely useless and irrelevant things for sale (many of them for an absurd amount of money) in the virtual world. Do you now what the most interesting thing is? There are a bunch of people willing to pay for them.

English Version | I love fashion but it’s everything I hate

Catherine Deneuve and an Australopithecus with a bone on their head come into a bar. In between six double martinis and twenty cigarettes, they talk a little about rock art, jogging on the beach, laundry machines, surfer boys, Depeche Mode, lice, garbage cans, yacht vacations and good weed. Ah, and about fashion.

English Version | A group of idiots

AA’s, Therapy Groups for Oncological Patients, Newley-Divorcees, Drug Addicts… And what about the stupid bunch, not just dumb, but truly jackasses, the biggest misfits and inapt? Are they not people? How would a session of DA (Dumb Anonymous) go?

English Version | Wanted: self-awareness

In a world where everyone has “something to add” to pretty much every single thing, where do we stand as far as the things that shouldn’t be said go? No, in fact, we shouldn’t say everything we’re thinking. It’s not smart, unwise even. And a clear demonstration, for the most part, of a total and quite scary lack of self-awareness.

English Version | It’s love, moron!

In an era when it’s urgent to love, does it make sense to keep seeing love as a one-way trip, with no layovers or stops along the way? If in 2015 the Unknown Mortal Orchestra were singing about the polyamorous relationship of their leading singer, Ruban Nielson, now we go back to school to understand what the right formula to love actually is – or if there is one at all to begin with.

Curiosidades 15. 7. 2021

English Version | Allegro ma non troppo

Which is kind of like saying, happy but not that much. From the top of our intellectual sovereignty, we envy what “others”, the less capable than us, the ignorant, seem to have: unlimited happiness. Because they don’t think as much, because they’re not aware of the world and things, because their IQ is lower. But who was it that said that “others”, the less capable, the ignorant, are happier? And who can guarantee us that we, powerless observers of human nature, are not simply idiots for supposing such a thing?
