Somebody that I used to know..

Gotye- Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra)

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know…

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know



I got life

Ain’t got no, I got life by Nina Simone

Ain’t got no home, ain’t got no shoes
Ain’t got no money, ain’t got no class
Ain’t got no skirts, ain’t got no sweater
Ain’t got no perfume, ain’t got no beer
Ain’t got no man

Ain’t got no mother, ain’t got no culture
Ain’t got no friends, ain’t got no schooling
Ain’t got no love, ain’t got no name
Ain’t got no ticket, ain’t got no token
Ain’t got no God

What about God?
Why am I alive anyway?
Yeah, what about God?
Nobody can take away

I got my hair, I got my head
I got my brains, I got my ears
I got my eyes, I got my nose
I got my mouth, I got my smile
I got my tongue, I got my chin
I got my neck, I got my boobs

I got my heart, I got my soul
I got my back, I got my sex
I got my arms, I got my hands
I got my fingers, Got my legs
I got my feet, I got my toes
I got my liver, Got my blood

I’ve got life , I’ve got my freedom
I’ve got the life

And I’m gonna keep it
I’ve got the life
And nobody’s gonna take it away
I’ve got the life


Pazar: Bir Ticaret Masali / The Market: A Tale of Trade (2008)

The story begins in an Eastern Turkey border city. The conditions are hard and a A black market trader tries to afford his family while fighting with his alcohol and gambling habit. He often crosses the Acerbaijan border to bring goods and sells in Turkey. He always wonders ”how can I become rich already?”

The director Ben Hopkins benefits from the deep character anaylsis of British movies. Every character is portrayed very clearly ; they express themselves with strong personal expressions.

The performance of every single actor, brings the movie closer to the perfection. The Eastern accent is spoken so well and fluently that the viewer feels warm and more familiar to the culture and social interaction in the area.

The kindness and tenderness of the wife to the struggling husband. The competition between the local traders.A child hearted elderly tired of life. Excitement of winning and dissapointment of losing. At the end of every day a hand reaches out to a cold beer stored outside the kitchen window. The click and the sip..

A joyful movie

Get Him to the Greek (2010)

So an’ sooo funny. I almost got injured lauging to the producer Sergio (P. dIddY) feeling feather while on ”the Jeffrey”.

A movie of constant running, fighting, drinking and puking craziness. The DVD cover calls the movie next Hangover, but I think Get Him to the Greek is a more brilliant ”on the way action” picture with absolutely hilarious actors.

Vavien (2009)

A Turkish dark comedy genious by Durul and Yagmur Taylan. The story is written by Engin Gunaydin. An electrician the husband (Engin Gunaydin) and a cleaning lady wife (Binnur Kaya) live in a small town in Istanbul

The husband is in debt and in love with a woman from a night club.He is unhappy with everything in his life.

The wife is not the brighest person and dependent to her husband. Not to mention the money she is hiding from him.

The moves takes off from a wife murder attempt to the path of a happy life.

The movie makes you chuckle although the overall feeling is sadness. Beautiful scenes portray this unusual series of events happening to an ordinary family.

me NO like

Here are the two movies I wanted to cut myself watching. The reason for this extreme behavior is definetely not because they were dramatic, it is because they were extremely boring and pointless.


First of all this is one of the most depressing movies I have ever seen.  I patiently saw most of the film but then I realized, I have already seen it last year. I remembered how I decided to forget about it all. If you are making a sad movie, at least include good imaging or make a point right? Well no, the movie just leaves you there, hanging and depressed…


In short this is a British Guy Richie wanna be movie. It is trying so hard to be artsy and tough with smart words, but in the end it is a big failure in my opinion. Honestly I have not seen the whole movie because I could not handle the ”oh look at me I am talking for 10 minutes for every reaction which makes me such a cool movie”. By the way the acting is a big reason for this failure. The actors are so not right for their role. Nothing ever happens and it is just a bad constant imitation.

The Illusionist ,L’illusionniste (2010)

It is nice to know that there are still movies out there that can tell you a fairly touching story for 90 minutes with hardly any dialogue. The expressions, the looks, the cities and the people come together to paint a small section of an illusionist’s life in 2010 made ”The Illusionist”.

It is quite hard to understand and follow the character’s deep feelings due to the limited dialogue. What old man and the little girl shares is pretty repetitive throughout the movie. But I believe what makes this movie beautiful is the colorful characters of show business they encounter around Paris, London and Edinburgh.  My favorites are definitely the acrobat triplets 🙂 Enjoy!


A nice time

What do you get out of a week?



Hug from mum

Smile from dad

Hold of your brother

Two warming eyes of a stranger

Friend shoulder to cry on

Laughter from a sad friend

Advise from a new friend

Good food

Delicious Raki

Sharing till the last drop

Drunk mind

Peaceful heart

Salty water

Smelly grass

Itchy sand

Fighting wind

Smiling sun

Winking clouds

You are flying

Flying far away

Leaning right

Leaning left


Then descending

and finally landing…

At the end

You lock them inside

very deep

Plant the seeds in your dreams

and watch them grow

Grow tall

Grow wide

with love…

Les petits mouchoirs (2010)

Nobody is perfect, and nobody is normal. Here are a  couple of friends who are not afraid to expose their mind. The whole experience was that I packed my luggage and went on a vacation with them. It is a heart warming , very realistic and absolutely hilarious movie without even trying too hard.
