Princess Mononoke

Princeza Mononoke princess

  To say that “Studio Ghibli” is the Japanese version of “Walt Disney” is somewhat true, as it makes sense to compare them in some respects. However, they also have their unique distinctions. One thing is certain, though: both are bound to captivate both children and adults alike. “Princess Mononoke”…

As a Man Thinketh

Misliš stvaraš Džejms Alen As a man thinketh

  Do you know what common thread runs through names like Norman Vincent Peale, Tony Robbins, or the now-cult documentary/book “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne, as well as dozens of other successful individuals in the world of business, motivation, and whatnot? They all share one thing in common: a small,…

99 Sufi Stories

99 sufijskih prica

  I have always believed that “stories are meant to put small children to sleep and “wake up” the adults”. As children, we enjoy these tales (fairy tales, fables, anecdotes…), that is, their mystical/fantasy/fantastic element. As we grow older, we realize that many of these stories carry significant and meaningful…

The Goalie’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick

The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick 1

  When I finished reading the novella “The Goalie’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick,” I wasn’t sure how to approach this work by Peter Handke. Did I like this book or not? Should I have perhaps started with one of his more recent works, instead of one of his earliest…

Everything Is F*cked

Ma sve je sjebano everything is fucked up Mark Manson

  One of the most-read texts on this blog (in fact, this text is still the champion in terms of the number of visits) is the review of Mark Manson’s book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck”. This book ended up on my shelf known as the “Shelf…

Peaceful Warrior

Put mirnog ratnika Peaceful warrior

    Uh, the situation is not easy either for the film we’re discussing today or for me. How to stay objective in a review of a film from which you have great expectations, simply because it’s made based on one of your favorite books? But, what must be done,…

Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Put mirnog ratnika Peaceful warrior

  This book and I go way back… there’s a lot of history there. How much, I wonder… about seven or eight years? Maybe a year more? When I first saw the book “Way of the Peaceful Warrior”, its title (including the cover) caught my attention, as did some quotes…

Volvo Trucks

Volvo kamioni Erlend Lu

  Do you remember our friend Doppler from the novel of the same name by Erlend Loe? Our Norwegian friend who had enough of everything and went to live in the forest? As you probably recall, our brilliant friend, on one hand, had grown weary of people and their presence,…

Looking for Alaska

U potrazi za Aljaskom

  Wow… I must admit, I found myself reflecting after finishing John Green’s “Looking for Alaska”. I reminisced about my time in elementary, high school (and even college, why not), thinking about the people I met during my schooling. Of course, encountering each person in our lives shapes and defines…

Fight Club (movie)

Borilački klub

  Okay, shortly after finishing Chuck Palahniuk’s “Fight Club,” I decided to (re)watch this cult film from 1999, starring Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, and Helena Bonham Carter in the lead roles, riding on the waves of impressions from the book. You can read about the plot in my book review,…
