核爆炸时刻表 1945-1998

视频由日本艺术家 Isao Hashimoto 制作,  来感受一下政治幽默.

图片是 Tsar Bomba/沙皇炸弹, 这里还有关于它的一则笑话可以看

赫鲁晓夫 三则

  • 1962年12月, 赫鲁晓夫参观了在莫斯科马奈日展览厅举行的先锋派美术展. 观赏后赫鲁晓夫大发雷霆, 他将艺术家的作品形容为”狗屎”.
  • 他关注农业, 认为美国人大量种植玉米, 苏联人也不该落后, 继而在全国推广玉米运动.
  • 在1960年10月联合国大会会议期间, 当菲律宾代表发言抨击苏联在东欧幹的正是他们所反对的殖民主义时, 赫鲁晓夫脱下皮鞋, 敲打桌子, 表示抗议. 成为著名的外交事件. 然而, 后来经过对现场照片的分析, 发现实际的情况是: 赫鲁晓夫在手拿皮鞋敲打的同时, 他的两只脚上其实都穿着皮鞋. 也就是说, 赫鲁晓夫提前就预备了一只额外的皮鞋. 他并不是一时兴起脱下皮鞋抗议, 这个举动是精心安排过的, 典型的苏联恐吓式外交手段.

Talking Heads – Once in a Lifetime

Once in a Lifetime” is a song by Talking Heads, from their album Remain in Light. Written by David Byrne and Brian Eno, it was named one of the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century by National Public Radio.


The verses of the song consist of David Byrne speaking rather than singing. With the lyrics “Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down,” the song has an existential vibe to it, although it is usually interpreted to be a song dealing with the midlife crisis and the inevitable sacrifice of youthful ideals and dreams for conventional success:

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!

The main portion of the lyric is said to be based on a preacher heard on the radio by Byrne and Eno while they were driving through New York.

Music video

The music video features a bespectacled David Byrne dancing much like a marionette. The choreography was done by Toni Basil, famous for her hit song “Mickey“. Byrne is shown making sudden flings of his arm, tapping his head, and getting on his hands and knees to pat the floor, much like simple tricks which can be done with actual marionettes. In the background, Byrne dances in perfect synchronisation; in the foreground, a larger Byrne is getting further and further out of synch. Some of Byrne’s mannerisms (such as physical spasms, unfocussed eye movements, and sharp intakes of breath) were inspired by choreographer Basil showing him footage of epilepsy sufferers. The video is noted for being exhibited in the New York Museum of Modern Art.
