the grey clouds of Frankfurt

(Read the post while playing the video. Don’t concentrate on the content on the video; it’s only an emotion I wanted to share.)

I hate banks.

I arrived at Frankfurt airport with no cash no phone and the machine wouldn’t let me withdraw money. My credit card was not working I have no idea why. I started panicking and my throat was tight. I wasn’t producing saliva anymore. I was seeing myself sleeping on the airport floor until someone would be kind enough to lend me money so I could get to my destination, as if that could happen. I even thought of changing my return ticket to Beirut but that would’ve involved money as well. Buying a phone card was also not an option with the 5$ left in my pocket.  Then after some time trying different ATMs while wheeling my suitcase up and down the airport, it finally worked. I booked my train ticket to Karlsruhe and here I am now.

a bit of what I do

Posted in graphics, works by ladybug on September 4, 2011

Although I went to what we call an Art School, I never studied graphic design.

All you need is a bit of visual sense & some visual taste.

I’ve been working on these posters each month for the last year and a half for an electronic music show called Snowfish Cabaret hosted on http://www.beattunes.com .

A graphic designer would tell you to keep the same visual communication throughout one’s identity. I say fuck ça.

Bam.

today it’s really a sunday

Today is a Sunday.

I have mixed feelings about Sundays.

I like to think I can be productive on a Sunday. I always have these plans of renting a bicycle to stroll around town or go up to the Shouf region and walk in the cedars forest; but I always end up waking up late, crawling all day between a mattress and the other, in a heavy molluscous way.

As it’s one of my first posts, I will please your eyes and your ears with this video clip of the great band Mashrou3 Leila. I edited and co-directed it with Yelostudio a bit more than a year ago.

Enjoy.
