Happy new year! Mutlu yeni yıllar! С новым годом!

It has been a year full of lies, as before
It has been a year full of hopes, as before
It has been a year full of sadness, as before
It has been a year full of happiness, as before

on the name of humanity…

Actually I feel myself lucky because of I came to this planet 🙂 You can’t see this mix in anywhere at the universe except Earth. You can laugh and one minute later you can see a bad thing that hurts. At the most hopeless moment, the human being can find a hope light. Even this light is tiny shape and they have to ability to hold this tiny light. Every thing is lived on the name of surviving like every living creature did, in here.

And I am sure that as an extraterrestrial:)

New year 2016 will be a year full of lies, like this year
It will be a year full of hopes, like this year
It will be a year full of sadness, like this year
It will be a year full of happiness, like this year

on the name of humanity.

We will be waiting every unforseen events, my Earthling friends. We will be angry for every injustice events, and we will try to correct in our ways. We will make jokes for every absurdity and universe will hear us by wishing “we want to laugh”. 🙂

These that human being kept in the hands. These are mankind’s power, there is nothing more…

WD and I wish to you my Earthling friends, a happy and healthy new year!

Happy new year!
Mutlu yeni yıllar!
С новым годом!

See you next year 😉

PS: And if you ask why Iron Maiden has been your choice, some of you know that I love the most this band on this planet. I do not believe the religions’ gods, you know. Religions’ gods seem to me as fantastic hero for me. Maybe worse, because they don’t answer any help calling of human being 🙂 And because there is nothing upper this planet, there is just universe. But I believe there are some gods on this planet. Iron Maiden is god of Heavy Metal like Judas Priest for me. Up the Irons! (Yes I have to say this:) And much the same music there are the some literature gods like Isaac Asimov, Umberto Eco, Aziz Nesin or etc for me. And my music and literature gods always answer my call in everywhere I am:) Thank you all them! Anyway, that’s why I chose 🙂

My love life

85c

While approaching a new year, I am thinking about my past love life as a handsome and emotional dog. Who knows, how many female dog heart has been broken by me?

I did not have a steady relationship at all. Actually, I’m not a picky or racist dog. I do not like to assess to the lady dogs according to their races. But of course there are some features I’m looking for. But so far I have not found all of them in one female dog. Yes, I guess, I’m a perfectionist dog.

When I didn’t find a match, I had decided to apply the blessings of the internet age. There are some dating sites on the Internet. Some dog owners put the pictures of their dogs for causing to mate via internet. But it’s not easy to find mates on the internet. Because, I think the owners already made photoshop to the pictures of these dogs. Mostly, I’ve always shocked when I went to the date. While I was in front of the screen of computer with admiring (like at the picture above on this post), to see these dogs in real  was complete disappointment. And of course, this one-night stand is not area of my interest. In addition, to live by knowing that my illegitimate children are around, is too annoying!

A friend of mine had experienced this. He was proud to be father of at least 15 puppies. Then what happened to him? The families of puppies wanted alimony, he is penniless right now. I do not have any such problems.

My biggest worry is that the lady dog I wanted to get closer has often a psychological problem. As follows,

They are too dependent to their owners, and this is clearly to be diffident. All female dogs that I offered living together, they left me and went to their owner in maximum 15 minutes. I always felt myself used!

If the stray dogs do have more anarchy; monogamy is not for them.

Besides, all they are feeling themselves lack of self-confidence near me who has high culture dog; I am aware. But there is nothing I can do, they can already choose to read books or watch movies, instead of chasing stupid cats!

Finally, I decided to write and share this situation with my beloved readers. I made a list. Here it is, what a handsome and intelligence dog is looking for the opposite sex?

– She must have shiny hair and beautiful eyes. But please, wouldn’t be Husky. I don’t even understand that they smile or not from their eyes!

– She must read especially these 3 short novels and stories! Thus, we will have a common point that we can share and talk.

Firstly, “Red Dog” written by Louis de Bernières
Secondly, “Philosopher or Dog?” written by Machado de Assis
Third one, “The dog” written by Friedrich Dürrenmatt

– She should love to walk near coast and to drink beer. Ok, even if she doesn’t drink beer, she can be my companion without making a sound while I am drinking or licking beer boxes.

– Absolutely, she must be anti-capitalist and must avoid take-home foods. She shouldn’t jump over every kind of foods like cats!
And..

-What are you doing WD?
-What Migo! What am I doing? Nothing!
-Are you looking for a mate online?
-This is not your business Migo! Besides, this is my blog too! I do what I want, I don’t need to answer to you!
– Is this your writing that you prepared for your mates?
– Put it down Migo!
– Hmmm, you forgot to mention that you took a bit of weight and you’re a nervous dog.
– What! Did I take weight? Am I nervous! I’ll show you right now, Migo!
-Yes WD, you’re already very calm as usual 🙂

Immortal

The year of 1930, the day December 23. The second fundamentalist uprising experienced at the west of the province of Menemen in Anatolia, while Turkey was young republic. (The first one had been experienced in 1925, and it was fundamentalist Sheikh Said uprising.)

The pictured Kubilay, a young lieutenant, was killed into the hands of a group that wants sharia. Mustafa Fehmi Kubilay was 23 years old. He had graduated from teacher’s training school. After completing his compulsory military service he was going to serve as teacher. He had dreams…

But after the abholisment of caliphate by Ataturk, the ones who wants sharia and the caliphate did not stop. After a long period of preparation, a bigot which called as Dervish Mehmet and 28 men who supported to him have provoked public in Menemen where Kubilay made military duty. Kubilay was injured by them. After then they captured Kubilay while he was alive, and they cut Kubilay’s head with a knife. Kubilay’s cutting head has been impaled and showed around at the end of the stick at square.

After, these bigot people were arrested by troops that come in here.

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk has asked immediately the establishment of a court when he heard event. The court was established and the 29 people were executed in the same place where they cut off the head of Kubilay in Menemen.

According to a rumor, Ataturk was so angry and upset for young Kubilay’s death that even he had wanted the deletion of Menemen over the map.

Kubilay is first martyr of the revolution of secular Republic of Turkey. I’m sure if he had lived, he would have added many beauty to the children. And he would have been an immortal in the children minds, but he has been immortal for all country.

Each year, mainly including Izmir in Turkey, the commemorative ceremonies are held in many cities on Kubilay’s behalf like today. And, the brutality of his death, the bloodlust of bigots and what have been sacrificed for a secular republic, are remembering.

Look carefully into his eyes at the picture. There is a beauty that the bigots wanted to destroy in his eyes at Middle East, Turkey and elsewhere in the world today; the beauty of light. Today, as same as nearly 90 years ago, the darkness wants to drown light. Indeed there is nothing change.

Gather the sun for me

Dawn wind, you go to the mountains,
gather the sun for me.
you transmit news to the four lands,
gather the sun for me.
Among the hopes,
from the black of eyelashes,
from the knife’s wound at bosom,
gather the sun for me.
Dawn wind, from the beloved one,
from the bird footsteps,
from the sky of night,
you gather the sun for me.

This song lyrics belong to Ulku Tamer, composing by Zulfu Livanelli. It tells hope with it’s words and music. It is well known song like many song of Livanelli in Turkey. Zulfu Livanelli, Turkish composer, writer, singer, poet, director, he has a rich past. He has got music album more than 20, awarded films and compositions.

Being leftist artist, Z. Livaneli was imprisoned three times during the 1971 Turkish coup d’état because of his leftist views and had to leave Turkey in 1972. He lived in Switzerland at first, after France and Greece. In 1984 he turned back to Turkey.

His songs many times have performed by the singers such as Joan Baez, Maria Farantouri, Mikis Theodorakis, María del Mar Bonet, Udo Lindenberg, Haris Alexiou.

He composed Nazim Hikmet’s poems and sang also. Like Livanelli’s song “the snowy beech forest” which is from “longing” poem of Nazim Hikmet.

The snowy beech forest

In the snowy beech forest
I am walking at night.
I feel out of sorts
Give me your hand, where is your hand?

Which one is more far away,
my homeland, stars or my youth?
Among the beechs
it is a window, yellow and hot.

While I pass from there,
If one says “uncle, come inside”
I wish I’d salute them by entering
within households.

I left my rosebud
at my city of seven hills.(*)
And,
Neither fear of death nor to think of death is shameful.

 

Livaneli directed four feature films until today: Iron Earth, Copper Sky( it is the adaptation from novel of Yasar Kemal); Mist; Shahmaran; and Farewell. He got reward with his film Iron Earth, Copper Sky in 1987 at San Sebastián International Film Festival, and his film Mist was rewarded in 1989 at Valencia International Film Festival and Montpellier Festival of Mediterranean Cinema.

Remembering Alexis

Today, police forces in Greece have attacked to the people who protesting 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos killing by a police. 13 people were detained. Greek police took under custody 13 people including 6 children.

7 years passed over Alexis’s killing by police.

January 2015, I had written an article about Alexis. Some of my Earthling friends will remember. For those who want to read, my writing about him:

https://unnecessarynewsfromearth.wordpress.com/2015/01/29/the-power-of-children/

I had quoted an announcement written by his friends at his funeral. They had written these lines to the adults.

You’ve forgotten…
We’ve expected from you to support us,
Even if it would be once time in your life, we were expecting that you made us proud.
In vain…
You are living lie life,
You’ve knuckled down,
You’ve took off your underpants and you are waiting for the day you will die.
You don’t have a dream, you do not fell in love
You do not create.
You are only selling and buying.
The materiality is in everywhere
Love is in nowhere, truth is in nowhere
Where are the parents, where are the artists?
Why don’t they go out and protect us?
They’re killing us…
Help us…

Signature: CHILDREN

Maybe, there is no place for children inside adults human world on this planet. Today, I want that we just remember his name once again. This beatiful brave human child was the target of attacks while he fought for a better planet. Maybe we just should say his name aloud! And perhaps he will hear us and realise that he would be remembered and he will smile. Alexis Grigoropoulos!

“…however and wherever we’re, we must live as we will never die…” Nazim Hikmet

On living

Living is no laughing matter
you must live with great seriousness
like a squirrel, for example
I mean without looking for something beyond and above living,
I mean living must be your whole occupation.
You must take living seriously,
I mean so much so and to such a degree
that, for example, your hands tied behind your back,
your back to the wall,
or else in a laboratory in your white coat and safety glasses,
you can die for people
even for people whose faces you have never seen,
even though you know living
is the most real, the most beautiful thing.
I mean, you must take living so seriously
that even at seventy, for example, you’ll plant olive trees
and not for your children, either
but because although you fear death you don’t believe it,
because living, I mean, weighs heavier.

2
Let’s say we are seriously ill, need surgery
which is to say we might not get up
from the white table.
Even though it’s impossible not to feel sad
about going a little too soon,
we’ll still laugh at the Bektasi jokes being told,
we’ll look out the window to see if it’s raining,
or still wait anxiously
for the latest political reports.
Let’s say we are at the front
for something worth fighting for, say.
There, in the first offensive, on that very day,
We’ll know this with a curious anger,
but we’ll still worry ourselves to death
about the outcome of the war, which could last years.
Let’s say we’re in prison
and close to fifty,
and we have eighteen more years, say,
before the iron doors will open.
we might fall on our face, dead.
I mean with the outside beyond the walls.
I mean, however and wherever we are,
we must live as if we will never die…

3
This earth will grow cold, a star among stars
and one of the smallest,
a gilded mote on blue velvet
I mean this, our great earth.
This earth will grow cold one day.
not like a block of ice
or a dead cloud even
but like an empty walnut it will roll along
in pitch-black space.
You must grieve for this right now
you have to feel this sorrow now
for the world must be loved this much
if you’re going to be able say “I lived”…
