Tweestival Belgrade 2011

thursday 25 march 2011 

supporting “Association for animals”

Why this cause?
We came to the conclusion that this year’s Belgrade Twestival should be based on help to provide all resources for a better life of dogs in Belgrade, therefore a better environment for the citizens of this city.
Although the worst situation is for stray dogs, no one is helping them.
The dogs are hungry, homeless, sick and without proper care. They also need a new home.
For years now, this organization helps animals, and by now they did a great job, but they do not have enough funds to make it a big deal. That is why we want to help this charity.

How will the funds be used by your local charity?
– To provide medical assistance and medicines to threat the sick dogs;
– To provide enough rabies vaccine;
– To provide food and money for maintaining the existing location for dogs until they get a new family and home;
– and providing for other specific needs.

C u there!


Evening With…Naomi Kashiwagi

I am just wondering what will some tech freaks say on this video!!?!?You still using traktor???:) I am but we should ask ourselves is it technology what matters or art!?!?So unique and original Naomi Kashiwagi is admittedly a little fixated on the old and the useless. Dusty gramophones, abandoned typewriters and busted violin bows find new life in her art.

I like her headphones a lot:)


Stevie Wonder – Hotter Than July

Great documentary about Stevie Wonder , filmed by BBC in 1981. Do you think that Stevie will succeed in today’s music world of Lady Gaga and others???

Best video 2011

Seeing faces of this street kids is priceless. For me this is best video for this year. It’s fascinating what is music doing to the kids, i guess for some small amounts of happyness we don’t need computers and fancy controllers. Music is in our nature!
