i12bent:

French writer Louis-Ferdinand Céline (May 27, 1894 – 1961), author of Journey to the End of the Night,  a celebrated novel. Written in an explosive and highly colloquial  style, the book shocked most critics but found immediate success with  the French reading public, which responded enthusiastically to the  violent misadventures of its petit-bourgeois antihero, Bardamu, and his  characteristic nihilism.
Céline’s writings are examples of black comedy, where unfortunate and  often terrible things are described humorously. Céline’s writing is  often hyper-real and its polemic qualities can often be startling;  however, his main strength lies in his ability to discredit almost  everything and yet not lose a sense of enraged humanity. Céline was also  an influence on Irvine Welsh, Günter Grass and Charles Bukowski.  Bukowski has famously said that “Journey to the End of the Night was the best book written in the last two thousand years.”
“Truth is a pain which will not stop. And the truth of  this world is to die. You must choose: either dying or lying.  Personally, I have never been able to kill myself.” — L.-F. C.

Willem de Kooning: 1904-1997
...From 1950 to 1955, he produced his well-known Women series, “integrating the human form with the aggressive paint application, bold colors, and sweeping strokes of Abstract Expressionism. These female “portraits” provoked not only with their vulgar carnality and garish colors, but also because of their embrace of figural representation, a choice deemed regressive by many of de Kooning’s Abstract Expressionist contemporaries, but one to which he consistently returned for many decades”...

Quandong Song

Blue Quandong (Elaeocarpus grandees) Fruits are 15-25mm in diameter and are a well known bush food. They are the BLUE MUSICAL NOTES which litter the forest floor with their vibrant song. Flying foxes, birds, rats and cassowaries all eat them. They are often found in the big birds scats half digested as blue poo. The blue fruit contains a Hard seed which is often used to make jewellery. As you walk through the rainforest and notice yellow /red leaves on the ground these may be from a Quandong tree. The blue fruits will often confirm this. A well known cassowary food, It is interesting to note that cassowaries in captivity who have tasted watermelon and apples reject quandongs on most occasions.
