Da importância do pão com tulicreme



Ok, é verdade que ultimamente têm sido lançados discos muito bons. Bons demais. Tão bons que até chateia. Tão cheios de rasgo que me sinto obrigado a abrir as janelas para vociferar aos músicos transeuntes: «Parem lá com isso que um gajo quer estar em silêncio com a família». (E a levar, em consequência desse gesto imprudente, com um baixo na marrafa).
Mas nesta chuvarada de discos do catano, há que tentar distinguir o bom do mais ou menos. O que vale mesmo a pena do que não vale assim tanto a pena. O “sim, senhor, foi bom ter trocado umas horas de TV-Shop por isto” do “ora bolas, mais valia ter ficado a ver o Malato”.
Sejamos concretos como o número do défice: o disco do Patrick Wolf é chato. Por vezes, chatarrão mesmo. Um daqueles em relação aos quais só apetece dizer: “Já percebi a ideia e depois?”. E o melhor de tudo é que o disco foi elogiado sem reservas pelo DN e pelo Público. Ah, tirem-me tudo (até os discos dos Chameleons), mas não me tirem o prazer da contradição.
(A propósito: para além das polémicas literárias, devia passar a haver polémicas musicais. Com direito a duelo e tudo. Imaginemos: dois tipos frente a frente. Ao lado de cada um deles, uma aparelhagem. Cada um faria as suas escolhas musicais - até que alguém desistisse perante o génio de DJ do adversário. Do género: «Toma lá os Black Eyed Peas»; «Vê lá mas é se te aguentas com o último da Shakira»).
Alguma seriedade nisto. Wind in the Wires até começa bem, com the Libertine, uma espécie de encontro clandestino entre os Auteurs e Marc Almond. A partir daí, começa a chatice de um disco que vive à custa do flirt entre violinada – e a pianada e a acordeonada - e os sintetizadores.
Não, não se pode dizer que Teignmouth e Wind in the Wires, por exemplo, sejam maus temas. Não é isso. Têm atmosfera (perdoem-me a linguagem de programa sobre bares de província) e o rapazote aguenta-se bem quando puxa pela voz (o Luís Jardim, do Ídolos, iria gostar da voz do menino). O problema é a pose.
Uma pose que se arrasta (é este o verbo) para a música. Uma pose de rapazola que vai à descoberta do mundo e que abusa de tiradas absolutas sobre a necessidade de ser livre e não sei que mais – e por isso absolutamente ingénuas. Ou então afectadas. (A foto da capa do disco é um exemplo máximo de afectação; não deixa no entanto de parecer que foi roubada às paredes de um cabeleireiro de homens da Madragoa).
Eis que chegamos à sexta, The Gypsy King. Aqui é diferente. Aqui o problema não é apenas de pose. É de composição. É de refrão. É de monotonia. É de chatice. A cançoneta Gypsy King, de tão aborrecida que é, chega a fazer desesperar pelos Gypsy Kings. Ao menos tínhamos regabofe garantido.
Até ao fim já não há nenhuma música que salve verdadeiramente o disco - apesar de a última, Lands End, ser uma fuga bem conseguida ao registo soturno e pós-adolescente.
Sejamos, para finalizar a prosa, paternalistas como um ministro das Finanças: Patrick Wolf revela talento para a coisa mas ainda tem de comer muito pão com tulicreme. Ele e aquele outro que também anda muito na moda e que assina como Bright Eyes. NCS

Por falar em albuns novos de enorme qualidade, que tal um de vocês pegar no Kensington Square do Vincent Delerm de 2004 e o ouvir ? :) Espero que valha o tempo da TV shop .. a norte do Mondego vale o tempo de muita gente já. Só uma sugestão! Um abraço!

Essential oils, roots and herbs can be used in a variety of ways to promote healthy living and stress testing. They are used to create natural remedies for treating ailments common to both people and animals, to add flavor to food, to make perfumes and to create environmentally friendly cleaning products.

You do not have to own a garden to tap into the benefits of plants, roots and herbs. A few herb pots located by a sunny window are enough to get you started. Then, all you need are some essential oils and you are ready to go.

For therapeutic purposes, only the purest oils will do. It is possible to be fooled into thinking that you are purchasing a pure oil. Often, a lesser quality blend of several oils is used to mimic the properties of the pure oil. Blended oils are acceptable for fragrance purposes such as for perfuming a room, but pure oils are a "must" for medicinal purposes.

A reasonable guide to the purity of an essential oil is its price. Pure essential oils are generally more expensive. Common oils such as lavender and geranium are much cheaper than frankincense and carnation oil. It is advisable to become familiar with essential oil prices and then rely on this knowledge when purchasing oils from unfamiliar sources. Keep in-mind that you will generally get what you pay for. A price list from a reputable dealer is a valuable resource when purchasing essentials oils.

Usually, pure essential oils cannot be applied directly to the skin and must be mixed in a base oil to reduce their strength. Base oils such as almond oil or wheatgerm oil are commonly used for this purpose. Base oils are generally derived from seeds, nuts or vegetables and allow you to create essential oil remedies that can be massaged into the skin.

So, what do you need to get started with essential oils and natural remedies?

Without a doubt, Lavender is one of the most useful and desirable oils. Not only does it work wonders on cuts, bruises and burns, it also aids sleep and helps with relaxation.

The Tea Tree and Eucalyptus oils are useful for treating a variety of respiratory ailments. These are excellent for the treatment of colds and coughs. They can be massaged into the chest or burned in an oil burner to help clear the airways and prevent congestion. Tea Tree oil is a natural antiseptic and can be dabbed on cuts, bites and stings. It is often used to treat spots and pimples and when diluted with water, acts as a mouth gargle (keep in-mind it should never be swallowed).

Another basic antiseptic is Geranium oil. With its distinctive perfume and pain relieving properties, it is a necessary inclusion when starting out.

Peppermint oil should also be purchased as it treats digestive complaints and may be used in preparations for freshening breath.

For fragrant perfumes and establishing ambience in a room, buy some Patchouli and Ylang-ylang oils. Often combined in scented candles and air fresheners, a few drops of each in an oil burner creates a wonderfully perfumed home. Orange oil mixed with Cinnamon oil is a lovely winter alternative that evokes seasonal, holiday smells. Besides their perfume qualities, all four of these oils have other properties. Patchouli treats eczema and dandruff. Ylang-ylang is reputed to relieve stress, palpitations and high blood pressure. Orange is used in natural remedies for depression and nervous tension and Cinnamon is excellent for warts and viral infections.

The herbs, Thyme and Rosemary can be grown in pots and used when needed. To create essential oils from herbs, stew some large amounts in pure water, collect the steam and cool it. The oil will rise to the top of the drained water and can be collected with an eyedropper. Alternatively, a "flower still" can be purchased to make the job easier. Thyme and Rosemary are both antiseptics and can be used in skin care preparations. They are also delicious when used in cooking.

Lemon oil and fresh lemons will purify water and, when mixed with honey, are effective remedies for colds and flu. Lemon and white vinegar are highly efficient cleaning agents that can be used for domestic cleaning tasks without damaging the environment. Use white vinegar as a natural disinfectant or mix it with water to clean windows and wooden floors. It is also handy to keep a bottle of white vinegar in your car if you swim in the ocean. It will bring instant relief from jellyfish stings.

Citronella oil is perfect in summer to keep the insects at bay. Another natural repellent is Garlic. Fleas will not bite a dog that has been eating garlic, so a few garlic capsules in the dog food are a cheap solution to your pet's flea problem. A soft collar soaked in Citronella will also do the job.

Garlic also helps to promote a healthy immune system when the weather turns cold and viruses begin to circulate. In fact, most of the oils and herbs listed above are effective in helping to prevent many common winter illnesses.

Whether you are looking for remedies or nature friendly products to use around the house, the oils and herbs suggested above should help get you started. You will be ready to make some healthy changes in your way of life!
