Another overlapping (with My D-ay) cultural event – october seems to be very interesting month in belgrade: 22nd Belgrade Jazz Festival (in Dom Omladine and Kolarac), from 24-28 Oct.06.
Guessts in this order: Benny Golson & Big Band RTS, Stjepko Gut, Jon Hassell & Maarifa Street (SAD), John Scofield Trio (SAD), Soweto Kinch (UK) – more about the artist on PodNosh Podcast, James Blood Ulmer feat. Vernohn Reid & Memphis Blood Blues Band (SAD) i Bojan Z Trio (France/Serbia).
Organisation is 90% of the whole work done. As i found myself for days running/working /reading etc, late (actually early would be called ‘new day’ and a.m. hours), i found out a little bot help – it is not actually for eating but is Delicious – to keep all your URL’s of documents in all forms at one place, well-organised and with IR option, with all up-to-dates from all areas of interest, and networking/sharing your bookmarks with other people.
Statistics on unemployment in Serbia shows increasing numbers (is it any wonder?), as I’m preparing to participate in EU Burlesque troupe coming next week.
Paradox is that I’m helping (freelancing again) to some programe of support for the problem of employment in Serbia (someone in Finland had this ‘great idea’) , and idea is supporting unemployed with high school education – which is fine and useful.
But, what shall we do with other thousands of academic unemployed citizens, including old academics who sell antique books and other items at the flea market? Didn’t find any supporting programme for them recently. And maybe there is no need for asking as , many of them, are very far far away from this area, living and working in other surroundings.
