We Are… Feeling Lucky

Say whaaaaaaaaat. It’s 2014 y’all! Happy New Year and all those things.

As per most of our friends and fams, we here at WALD (for the newbies, that’s my “I can’t be arsed to type We Are Life Dishevelled” talk, oh and welcome!) are still walking around aimlessly, trying to find our lost possession from various chrimbo slash new years celebrations gone wild. I’m sure my phone is safely under a couch somewhere, along with part of my memory. But hey, this is why we call it the SILLY SEASON. Preach.

So in an attempt to get this blahhg back up and running, I thought it best we throw something up on this fizzle stick… Get ready, this chune is a flipping doozy…

Stumbling onto Melbourne’s talented Fortunes legit made my January. Yep. I went there. Big call? Maybe. Is it too early in the 31 days that is the month of January to say such things? Perhaps. But hey, I’m sticking to it. Why? Because they god damn deserve it.

I am experiencing so many feelz that my eyelashes don’t even know how to react. The restricted intro, the vocals, the beat, the build, the robotic yet heartfelt textures projected in the track’s 3 minutes and 56 seconds is just beyond what my little brain can handle.

And then, I saw the video…

Oh my lunch.

***Not that I’m encouraging it, but holy heck this would be a trip under the influence, nomsayin’.

Please, enjoy.

WE ARE… Hungering

I’ve been fiercely craving for a while now. Craving the taste, the sensation and the thrill of a kiss. Any kiss really. Little light fairy kisses scattered over my face, brutal passionate kisses that leave bruised lips, long sensuous kisses that leave you gasping for air. I’ve been single for a while and I choose my physical encounters with others sparingly – however sometimes that desire to meet someone else face to face and share passion/desire/wanting is sometimes so overwhelming I need to pause in whatever I am doing in that moment to get my self back in control. And until yesterday I had no idea that this rush of feelings and desire, this craving actually had a name; Basorexia.

 

Basorexia is defined in the Lecher’s Lexicon (1967) as ‘ a strong craving or hunger for kissing ‘. You won’t find this term in an official dictionary and even as slang it is not that widely used. However thanks to the world of Tumblr, I stumbled upon French video artist Anne Sorrentino, who has based a series of works upon the state of Basorexia. Her first, Basorexia I, is the most moving for me. She asked nine of her friends and colleagues to share with her a kiss – to revel in the moment of the kiss itself and not attach meaning or to confuse feelings for the actual person when performing the kiss. For Anne, “A kiss to me is the most beautiful interaction of two beings.” Simply watching the video, set to Massive Attacks Paradise Circus, you can feel the passion, tenderness and fun; and even though Anne asked them only to share a kiss with her, you can see the difference between the ones who gave in to the desire that a kiss can yield, and the ones who held their barriers up for fear of losing control.
