I’m a part of Lost Generation

and I refuse to believe that

I can change the world

I realize this may be a shock but

“Happiness comes from within”

is a lie, and

“Money will make me happy”

So in thirty years I’ll tell my children

They are not the most important thing in my life

My employer will know that

I have my priority straight because

Work

Is more important than

Family

I tell you this

Once upon a time

Families stay together

But this will not be true in my era

This is a quick fix society

Experts tell me

Thirty years from now I will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of my divorce

I do not concede that

I will live in a country of my own making

In the future

Environmental destruction will be the norm

No longer can it be said that

My peers and I care about this earth

It will be evident that

My generation is apathetic and lethargic

It is foolish to presume that

There is hope

And all of this will come true unless we reverse it.

– Jonathan Reed

~Celebrities with Heterochromia

Heterochromia refers to a difference in coloration, usually of the iris but also of hair or skin. Heterochromia is a result of the relative excess or lack of melanin (a pigment). It may be inherited, due to genetic mosaicism, or due to disease or injury.

Eye color, specifically the color of the irises, is determined primarily by the concentration and distribution of melanin. The affected eye may be hyperpigmented (hyperchromic) or hypopigmented (hypochromic). In humans, usually, an excess of melanin indicates hyperplasia of the iris tissues, whereas a lack of melanin indicates hypoplasia.

Heterochromia of the eye (heterochromia iridis or heterochromia iridum) is of two kinds:

  • In complete heterochromia,  one iris is a different color from the other.
  • In partial heterochromia or sectoral heterochromia, part of one iris is a different color from its remainder.

Though I personally don`t have heterochromia, I`m very interested in this anomaly, knowing a lot of people with this abnormality.

Actually, many  hollywood actors/actresses have it though it`s not always  noticeable, due to the partial heterchromia. Here are some celebrities who have both partial & complete heterochromia:

  • Kate Bosworth – Right eye partial brown/blue,  Left eye blue

  • Jane Seymour – Right eye partial brown/green, Left eye green

  • Mila Kunis – Left eye hazel, Right eye green

  • Demi Moore: Right eye hazel, Left eye green

  • Alice Eve : Right eye green, Left eye blue

  • Elizabeth Berkley: Right eye partial brown/green, Left eye green

  • Jessica Cauffiel: Left eye partial brown/green, Right eye green

  • Idina Menzel: sectoral heterochromia

  • Henry Cavill : Left eye partial brown/blue, Right eye blue

  • Jonathan Rhys Meyers : Left eye partial hazel/blue, Right eye blue

  • Josh Henderson : Left eye green, Right eye blue

  • Keifer Sutherland : sectoral heterochromia (both eyes partial green/blue)

  • Benedict Cumberbatch: sectoral heterochromia

  • Marshall Lancaster : sectoral heterochromia (right eye hazel/blue, left eye blue)

  • Simon Pegg : sectoral heterochromia (both eyes partial brown/blue)

  • Christopher Walken : partial heterochromia (both blue with green inner rings)

  • Dan Aykroyd:  complete heterochromia (right eye green, left eye brown)

  • Joe Pesci: partial heterochromia (both eyes partial blue/brown)

  • David Bowie: he was born with blueish eyes. In 1962, he got into a fight with his longtime school friend George Underwood (over George’s girlfriend), and a punch from Underwood damaged Bowie’s left eye. His pupil was paralyzed, becoming unable to dilate or contract according to the ambient light.  As a result, Bowie’s left eye now appears to be a different colour to his right eye, appearing either brown or green depending on the ambient light.

A great HBO tv series that started airing in 2007 had come across me right about then and it blew my mind; unfortunately, the show ended last year. But all the episodes were amazing: the costumes, the sets, the cast, the soundtrack… everything was absolutely perfect. In my opinion it is a brilliant historical series with an amazing cast and a magnificent story… a story of passion, of a mighty ruler, of a kingdom and a great dynasty. If you haven’t already seen it, you should definitely check it out!  And the important thing is that the historical truth is not changed in the film… well not entirely anyway.  So enjoy the movie trailer (for the first season) and maybe it will arouse your interest into seeing the whole show. It is worth it.

~The Bitter Sea…

Posted: March 5, 2011 in Life` Shit

A lighted cigarette,
A pain unquenched,
A life lost
In just a second.
Dreams missed,
Shattered destinies,
A year so mean
And full of venom
Donor of torment.
The future can not smile,
It can only destroy
Minds and false hopes
Thrown into the snake pit …

I kinda think that`s true…. `Cause just when you`re expecting the least, your so-called “friend” bites your head off…just because he can…because he`s your “friend”… So… my advice to all of you it`s to be aware… and look after yourselves… don`t think that your dear friend will always be there for you. No, be cautious …because this fucking world is full of hypocrites, hyenas & eating shit people…that will do anything to break you down and get it their way…. I`m just pointing out the obvious… Stupid things that you may already know, but you never thought about so deeply… So take a moment and analyse all the people close to you…think about your relation with all of your friends…how close you are with each individual, how well you know`em, how much they mean to you, in what way they`ve changed your life throughout the time …and only after that choose carefully which one you`ll trust when you`ll have a serious problem or when you may need moral support or any kind of help. Be selective and tactful…Don`t give away some important personal information and stories just because you think that you can trust that person… You can never trust anyone but yourself! ……

So I guess Kurt Cobain was right: “A friend is nothing but a known enemy.”
