Be inspired. be very inspired

27

Some of the artists whohave moved me, changed me, made a difference. They all had one thing in common - they were givving us a new kind of bucket, and that is an essential element for any kind of progress.

Music The Sound of Silence
60 Goete said "life without music is a mistake." for me, life without music is just boring. I dont know about mistake shmistake, but music is an impostant part of my life, and here areis why.
Literature Wonderful wit and wisdom
23 I was a bookworm my whole life, and books were always my roadmap and street signs, directing me, giving me the building blocks of who i am. This is a private literary journey through my favorites.
Poetry Contagious words and rhymes
5 One of the reasons i started writing poetry is because i dont like reading poetry. but even i have to confess there are some poets that did manage to touch me, and here you will find some of them.
Design Pretty practical progress
17 In my origins i am a designer. industrial and information design. My years studying in Italy give me a nice global percpective on the subject, and i am too glad to share some of my views on the world of design and human perception.
Photo

Serious snap and tickle

19 As an autodidact photographer,I learnt mainly by researching the work of great photographers. Here you can find some of the people who made me want to be a photographer.Some are masters, some relatively unknown, but they are all inspiring, to say the least.
Cinema

Tales from the holly woods

22 Cinema is the epitom of modern story telling, and here you will find some articles about my favorite directors, actors and films. classics, modern, comedies, action... it's all here. you just bring the pop corn.
Stage Performance perplexion
4 when i started photographing dancers, singers, complex productions and shiny stage lights, i found a new marvelous playgroud of creative people and new sights and sounds
TV The idiot box
12 The world's number one passtime. I was never a big fan, but since the internet freed us from the shackles of schedules, we can have more control on what we see, and we have to admit it is not all complete and utter...
Comedy Do you laugh enough?
18 There is nothing more important in the world then laughter. ok, that was a blatent lie, but you have to admit laughter is important. As a tool, as therapy, as medicine. I was always a big fan of laughter as a healing force.here you will find faces that made you laugh, and maybe a surprise or three.
 
 
Religion For god's sake...
16 I am not an atheist. just wanted to make that clear. But on the other hand, as i am also not eight years old anymore i find this whole story of religions, well...funny.
  Politics Snakes on a plane
14 It is not a coincidence that in my color coding i have chosen brown for politics. That's all I have to say. the rest is in my articles.Here you will find some of my views about this disease called politics.
  Science Follow the nerd herd
11 One of my favorite topics. Science is now the new religion, and as such is worth a nice debunking boot in the behind. These are just some of my thoughts, as self declareda non-scientist ignoramus, on some scientificmatters.
  Culture Silly Silly society
6 Culture is what defines us as people, as nations, as parts of a bigger set of rules. These days it seems culture is considered a luxury, and i have a lot to say about that sad trend in an effort to bring back some added value to a life that seems meaningless to begin with.
  Rants Dont bother reading this!
  Sometimes, even a coward like me gets out from under the shelter of abstract ideas and talks about something relevant. Once a week seems more then enough for me...
  Guests Who said free labour
Every month we will have guests contributors. the list is made up of artists, writers, historians, educators, musicians and other people who will not see through my scheme of making them write free content for my blog in the guise of 'guests'
 
  Eddie Izzard  

 

So then God created the world, and on the first day he created light and air and fish and jam and soup and potatoes and haircuts and arguments and small things and rabbits and people with noses and jam – more jam, perhaps

Edward Hopper
VERY VOYEUR

By being as direct and ceremony-less as America was supposed to be, Hopper did not only document what was happening, but almost single handedly created a new form of visual narrative,. >>
 

Esperanza Spalding
BLACK GOLD

When I listen to her bass lines, and especially when she is accompanying herself just on a double bass while singing,  you can immediately see she is Charles Mingus's lost daughter, the black sister Jaco Pastorias never knew he had.>>

 

Mom & Pop's
WEEKLY RANT

It had small dusty plastic containers, full with horrible hard candy in different colours and sizes, designed especially by the evil dentists, and bottles of sauces and strange concoctions on the upper shelves. All in all _ a wonderful chaos of merchandise.>>

 

What is the Bucketmoon.com site?
And in the end you are left with nothing but a bucket full of moon...

I Don't remember where i heard this line before. it was just there in my mind when i was looking for a name for this site. It might be from some old zen haiku. actually, it might be from a poem i havent written yet. Sounds like me.

We all know that this is all an illusion. Just a reflection of a moon in our bucket of arrogance and self importance.
I am not trying to fight it. I am celebrating that illusion. (being arrogant and self important helps)

I always thought that 'acquired taste' was nothing but a rouse to sell products under the pretence of 'luxury'. if it's "real" it hits you. you fall in love.All the rest? fluff.

this blog is some of the things that i fell in love with, some ofthe things that made me fall in love, some of the loves that made me fall, and quite a few rants about people who are trying to stand between me and falling in love on a daily basis.
           Enjoy! ,

  About the Site
 

Bucketmoon is a reflection of my life, of the people who have touched me, influenced me, made me who I am today, and it is my way of sharing that process, that cultural evolution with you. There are enough wikipedias and dry factual articles written on each and every one of the artists, authors and musicians I chose to include in this site, but i was never too interested in facts. They usually clutter up the truth .

All the articles are written from my point of view, and my only hope is that some of the enthusiasm, and my love and respect to these people will pass on in the writings, and maybe infect you with some wonderful things. Maybe, just maybe, you will find something new, something you missed, something that you skipped. Something that opens your eyes, expands your mind, maybe send you to a book, or even just to a YouTube clip that makes you say "Ahmm."
and then I will be truly happy

About the Writer
  I was born in Israel thirty nine years ago, to an architect father and painter mother thus killing any chance of me ever becoming an investment banker. Such a shame. As I was recovering from that crippling disappointment, I found that the creative life is the only one that fits my attitude and dubious character.

My childhood was the perfect chubby freckled base for my career as my babysitters were crayons and colored pencils and my favorite place to spend the summer vacations was the municipal library. I was very young when I found out books are more interesting than most people, and nobody understood my sarcastic sense of humor until I reached my twenties anyway.
