#6989 The Writing is on the Wall

Posted by Forster Woods on 09 September 2016 - 05:11 PM

Graffiti art through the ages. 
 
A great example of ancient graffiti would be the literal hand writing on King Belshazzar's wall. You know the story....the one in the Bible - specifically Daniel 5. Dooming his kingdom into oblivion. 
 
MeneTekelperes.jpg
 
“And if art is a crime let God forgive all”
 
Yes, even graffiti! The anonymous artists through the ages creating their ideas and scribbling them on the wall for all to see. Driving forth the creative ideas inherent in us all. Gossip and political commentary. Including those wicked and often funny vulgarities have always been a common theme throughout history. 
 
Whether you love it or hate it graffiti has always been an endearing factor in spreading ideas to affect human behavior. Anonymous images and memes compelling the common man to think, laugh, and sometimes even cry. Out in the fringes the bleeding hearts and artists making their stand...

 
These are some remarkably beautiful and illuminating works. It’s not your standard “Kilroy wuz here” stuff, although names found have found, and it’s definitely not the bawdy libels of Roman Pompeii. They are line drawings, some abstract, some of people, demons, ships and crosses. Circles are also a popular theme. It’s social history, contributions of the regular parishioners who attended church but couldn’t afford to leave their mark by sponsoring rich vestments, dazzling stained glass or soaring bell towers."

#6813 10 Things You Were Successfully Distracted From While Obsessing About Bruce J...

Posted by Forster Woods on 31 August 2016 - 11:39 AM

Tabloid newspapers and viral bullshit. Big time media salesman don't give a shit about what's really important. It's all about the distraction. Keeping the eye on Bruce's balls doesn't help anybody. Except the ones raking in the profits from all this madness.

#6438 The Psychology and Meaning of Colors

Posted by Forster Woods on 20 July 2016 - 12:05 PM

I haven't posted anything on this site for a bit. Thought I would add some information about color and how it affects people on an emotional level. And symbolism too. Your own thoughts on what your favorite colors mean to you would be good to talk about. 

 

What is it about the rainbow that gives most people a sense of happiness? Sure, it signifies the calm after a storm, but the colors themselves have an effect on our minds.
 
There is a reason why people prefer certain colors over others. This preference says volumes about our personalities, because each color has an association with a reaction our brain has when we internalize it.
 
Color psychology is a well-known, yet less explored branch of the study of how our brain perceives what it visualizes. As far as scientific research goes, there is not much to work with. However, the impact that colors have on our brains is used to manipulate our decision making by multiple facets of society.
 
 
Below is a listing of some colors with their associated psychological and emotional meanings...

It adds a certain level of enchantment when people see bright colors to enhance their emotional levels. One must be aware of how these things affect the mind and spirit. Because you can be sure that psychologists and marketers of all sorts know these things fully. They are well practiced at using the rainbow to further wicked agendas and sell cheap plastic products to an unsuspecting public.

#4816 Charms for inspiration...

Posted by Forster Woods on 15 March 2016 - 01:52 AM

Subliminal flickers in the frequencies of light and sound. Blasting the insular vortex with contrived frequencies from outside sources. Inhibiting critical thinking with flickering media to create hyper awareness using charisma and cinema. Creating all sorts of mannerisms, gestures, acting techniques, and other forms of etiquette to induce mass hypnosis.

Magic words! Again, with the magic words. They are important. Be they headlines, subtitles, and sub divisional categories of all sorts. Each with their own name. Know the name. Know its power. The Magic of Politics...cheer, baby, cheer...non stop! All hail to the charismatic image! When confronted by charisma the brain seems to turn off its critical thinking skills. I see a magic word in process today. Right this very minute! Working its insidious weave within our minds.

I can't say whether it's good or bad. But, I do know the name of TRUMP is a charismatic word of enchantment!

#4795 Charms for inspiration...

Posted by Forster Woods on 13 March 2016 - 04:53 PM

I found a great thread from another site. It offers an artistic approach at creating 'enchantments'.  Whether by words and phrases, images, and sound. An inspirational approach that may help others transform their own personal relationships into something more positive.

 

An Art form of great Quality

Choose to click or not click!

That is the question.... :chicken4:

http://the-fringe.co..._of_enchantment

I'll offer a bit here on Chickensomething of what I added on this interesting thread. It dovetails into something I've been thinking about for some time...

Regarding the enchantments created by the medium in which I call like to call 'The Flickers'. An old term. A 'magic' word used by people long since dead when Magic lanterns became something more....

I'll try to get to more on magic words at the end of this post.

The problems and dangers of time travel. Sometimes, it's real hard getting back to the future. Ah well, I guess that's just the pro's and con's of hitch hiking. The guide on the galaxy is pretty good for that. All this led to a bit of visual psychology. You know, the hypnotism of the flickers. Symbolism of imagery combined with sounds and music. Looking at iconography and how it can be used for enchantments. Showing major contentions in the psychological injections of ideas and fantasies into our minds and ultimately our human spirit. These injections include both positive and negative stimulus.

Which ingredients for enchantments are the best kind? We could use humor as an example. Divide it in two. One side comedy, the other satire. Comedy is positive. Satire is negative.

Visuals in black and white. Silent film era...Positive and negative flickers of thought! Yeah, I know these are old flickers of enchantment, but, I think they're pretty good. Those old enchanters really knew what they were doin.

Harold Lloyd - Satire

His films seem to mock the human condition and enjoy doing it. Extreme situations of danger and personal catastrophe . Master at editing and clever camera work. Willing to do own stunts at great hazard.

anigif_original-grid-image-32378-1430945

Charlie Chaplin - Comedy

Comedy with etiquette and finesse. Positive in a world of suffering. The tramp should never talk. He says enough by his genius at silent lucid gesture.

Can this be a magical word of enchantment?

In those days your subtitle count was the measure of your art...

Now, I gotta ask, is this really good etiquette at the table?

#1101 Why Walking In Nature Can Heal Your Brain

Posted by Forster Woods on 09 September 2015 - 03:22 PM

Did you know that walking in nature can heal not only your physical – but mental and emotional – body?

http://yournewswire....eal-your-brain/

Many of us have been completely cut off from nature in our day-to-day lives, especially compared to the generations before us. There have been many studies showing that city dwellers are much more likely to suffer from depression and other forms of anxiety than people who live in more natural, rural areas.

This may seem obvious to some, since the feeling we get from going for a walk through a park or forest, going camping, or just getting out of the city in general is so refreshing and generally very relaxing. But new research is proving just how important getting out of the city and into nature can be for our mental and physical well-being.
