趣圖趣聞︰2015-11-04 至 2015-12-13

         6 篇作品,我都喜歡;2 號最有「畫面」,4 號像四十年代末五十年代初荷里活黑色電影(Film Noir)的開首,而 1 號我則最有感覺……


        其實我們現在常見的蔬果,養殖、食用的牲畜,飼養、同活的寵物,絕大多數,皆非「自然」之物,而是人類數以百代人培植、混種、改造的結果,當然非自然,不等於不健康,更重要的,是既然何謂「天然」,往往不是三言兩語能判定,就不應該盲奉「天然」,視一切人工繁殖或基因改造之物為邪惡可怖之物吧。

        胡川安〈握壽司的小歷史〉︰「現在我們習慣坐在『板前』,就是吧檯前面,看著壽司師傅精湛的技巧,其實是從路邊攤轉變而來的。明治時代在淺草的『寶來鮨 本店』將路邊攤搬進餐廳之中,椅子放在櫃台前就成了現在的『板前』。出身福井藩下級武士家庭的華屋與兵衛,當時在江戶出差,但到江戶之後,看到熙來攘往的人潮,覺得自己可以在這個大城市闖出一片新天地,住在相撲競技場兩國附近的與兵衛,後來改賣起壽司。本來販賣箱壽司的華屋與兵衛覺得不夠快,不夠「速食」,開始想到用飯糰結合新鮮的漁獲。飯糰的大小才能夠填飽勞動階層(當時的壽司有現在的三、四倍大),新鮮的漁獲則來自東京灣。……現在稱為握壽司『王樣』的鮪魚,在江戶時代其實是比較廉價的魚類,當時最高級的其實是蝦子,特別是所謂的『車海老』,主要產在江戶灣的沿岸。因為鮪魚廉價,60 公斤的鮪魚也只要 600 文(換算成現在的幣值約一萬八千日圓)左右,原料來源便宜而且取得方便,所以握壽司才能成為庶民的料理。江戶時代的人也不喜歡現在最有人氣的鮪魚腹肉,而是喜歡甘甜的鮪魚赤身。」


        “Does the lotus fruit image above make your skin crawl? Up to 15% of people (18% of females and 11% of males) become viscerally upset after looking at images of clustered holes or bumps, according to research on the condition colloquially known as trypophobia. These clusters of holes are common in nature, for example: honeycombs or clusters of soap bubbles.... "There may be an ancient evolutionary part of the brain telling people that they are looking at a poisonous animal," Cole said in a 2013 press release. The disgust we feel may well give us an evolutionary advantage, even if we don't know it consciously, because it sends people with trypophobia running as far as possible from the holey-looking thing."


         “While the economic rationale is real, it’s also worth considering that another reason for the decision is that the lifestyle Playboy is selling no longer resonates. The internet offers choice, and with it, the ability for people to seek out and explore what they find attractive, rather than have an objective standard forced upon them.... In other words, the internet allows people to look for the things that they find attractive on a personal level, instead of assuming that attractiveness and attraction are objective standards that only fit into one mold."
【TOPick】內木一郎文藝思辯社〈香港的「船」字點樣寫?

        不久前在社交網站提到有電影公司舉辦人稱蘭桂坊岩井俊二/油尖旺洪尚秀/亞皆老街伊力盧馬的香港電影「奇才」的回顧展(見左圖),隔了幾日,始終覺得很神奇,其實,與其設計新海報作宣傳,不如用這一張葉氏的「神作」取代(右圖),既直接,又醒目,一眼就看得出葉氏電影的主題與風格,如此有愛,怎會俘虜不了觀眾呢?這個設計真的太厲害了……

        對比葉大導的「經典」,這才是真正的設計﹗ 太精妙了﹗ 大家認得出以下這些海報講的是甚麼電影嗎?Margaret Rhodes︰Can You Figure Out the Movies Behind These 13 Minimalist Posters?
