an Icelandic woman's take on Hollywood

Oct. 16th, 2017 | 11:48 am

"i come from a country that is one of the worlds place closest to equality between the sexes and at the time i came from position of strength in the music world with hard earned independence , it was extremely clear to me when i walked into the actresses profession that my humiliation and role as a lesser sexually harassed being was the norm and set in stone with the director and a staff of dozens who enabled it and encouraged it . i became aware of that it is a universal thing that a director can touch and harass his actresses at will and the institution of film allows it . when i turned the director down repeatedly he sulked and punished me and created for his team an impressive net of illusion where i was framed as the difficult one . because of my strength , my great team and because i had nothing to loose having no ambitions in the acting world , i walked away from it and recovered in a years time . i am worried though that other actresses working with the same man did not ."

“ORIGO” – JOCI PÁPAI (HUNGARY, EUROVISION 2017)

May. 20th, 2017 | 01:06 pm

======
It’s a song with Hungarian lyrics and a Romani phrase that serves as the chorus, “jálomá lommá, jálomá lommá”.
While “Origo” tackles some tough subjects such as ethnic discrimination and prejudices, it’s ultimately a song of hope. Joci sings of how he finds strength in God, and how he uses his music to connect with people on an emotional level

"How to date a Canadian" :)

Jan. 20th, 2017 | 09:49 am

"How to date a Canadian: embrace gender fluidity – and wear layers.
..
Unlike Australians, Ethiopians and in fact every other nationality, Canadians don’t tend to congregate in neighbourhoods. No city on Earth has a Little Canada.
Canadians do, however, require shelter like other human beings: try Gumtree or Craigslist and you might be able to attract one to your house. They are sometimes spotted near youth hostels, sports bars and political protests.
If that fails, note that they’re also more susceptible to cold – all that time spent behind double-glazed windows in super-insulated homes has made them soft. So provide sources of warmth: log fires, hot chocolate and hugs. Canadians love a hug.
