Here’s to you (Nicola and Bart), com Joan Baez

Hoje em dia é difícil explicar o que é anarquismo. Mas é fácil explicar a injustiça da pena de morte para Sacco e Vanzetti. Fácil sentir solidariedade por eles nos versos de Joan Baez e música de Ennio Morricone.

Nighthawks, by Edward Hopper

Nighthawks, by Edward Hopper

The painting Nighthawks, by Edward Hopper, shows 4 personae late night in a New York downtown restaurant, in the decade of 1940. The limitation of perspective shows each figure totally independent from the others, therefore antecipating the contemporary hyperrealist style.
