Baca veliku senu / Casts A Large Shadow

Small Man, Large Shadow illustration

This is like Graograman in Pel(er)in, but creepier. Many thanks to Lucy, as talking to her inspired me to start writing this one. I suddenly had the 7th verse composed in my mind – within 30 seconds. In two languages. The rest is pretty self-explanatory, actually; if you go for what it reminds you of Read on

Ona, ona, ona…ši / She, she, she…Shi.

Anyone up for a strange salad?
I kept on thinking about tetraphobia (fear of number 4), common in eastern and southeastern Asia. I kept on thinking about the symbolism of wormwood throughout history and the fact that its Latin name and the name of its genus came from the goddess of war, Arthemis. Funny enough, in Read on

Snovokradica / Dreamthief

Not sure if the Wrong Star gremlins want me to post this. :p As I was finalising English version and writing a birthday card for Petra, I felt that Starsplash’s Fly Away is causing my entire chair to vibrate. I know dance music brings vibes, but this was different. It ended up being an earthquake.

100 Watt Light Bulb

This was a strange experiment, from a couple of days ago. I looked at my shopping lisg t and saw the last item on it – a 100 watt light bulb. I wondered if I can write a p..m inspired by that, a super-short one. It worked out. It’s about inspiration overload in 2010.

Kako je to bilo / How It Was

This was the most challenging p..m in the entire series. I needed to read a book containing too much of tech and science lingo in a language that’s neither my first, my second nor my third. I named this p..m after that particular book.
This one is about some sort of a trial simulating another Read on

Pecanje u zvezdama / Fishing In The Stars

I wrote this one for my father. If you thought that atheists had no respects for dead, you were wrong. The loved ones might not be going anywhere, but for as long as I love, my dad lives on.
Pecanje među zvezdama
Kad si preminuo,
uzela sam jedan od tvojih štapova za pecanje
i pecala u suzama koje sam Read on

Godina mira / The Year Of Peace

This is a popular culture approach to the book. I think it is too dumb to end up in the book itself, but its black humour approach might be fun to some people. Actually, it’s a bit English, as I got the impression that English people make everything sound funny, even if their baaaah baaaaah Read on

Ja nisam umetnik / I Am Not An Artist

I kept on looking at three people who are a part of everyday life in this big city- two women and one man and they inspired me. Thank you, all three of you. Your idiocy moves me to great heights, yet I’m not too good for your blasé world….and a bunch of others’ blasé worlds, Read on

Two years of iva-is.me

This domain turned two on Monday. I almost forgot it, as I renewed it on time; unlike last year when I had no income, when my mother refused to lend me money and when Anca saved the day, which I thank her for.
It’s been two years of odd, odd and nothing but odd. Read on

Jaganjci će postati oblaci / Lambs Shall Become Clouds

The unmodified verses 3 and 4 of this were originally a p..m of their own that never really developed, as it had no story and it wasn’t making a statement for months, until the rest just wrote itself this morning. Originally, B was meant to be compared to some sort of a black lamb (bad Read on
