baby's first words

  • baby: d-d-da..
  • father: daddy?
  • baby: dada /ˈdɑːdɑː/ or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. Many claim Dada began in Zurich, Switzerland in 1916, spreading to Berlin shortly thereafter but the height of New York Dada was the year before, in 1915.[1] To quote Dona Budd's The Language of Art Knowledge,
  • Dada was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of World War I. This international movement was begun by a group of artists and poets associated with the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition. The origin of the name Dada is unclear; some believe that it is a nonsensical word. Others maintain that it originates from the Romanian artists Tristan Tzara's and Marcel Janco's frequent use of the words "da, da," meaning "yes, yes" in the Romanian language. Another theory says that the name "Dada" came during a meeting of the group when a paper knife stuck into a French-German dictionary happened to point to 'dada', a French word for 'hobbyhorse'.[2]
  • The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature, poetry, art manifestoes, art theory, theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. In addition to being anti-war, Dada was also anti-bourgeois and had political affinities with the radical left.

three-am-kisses:

a minha mãe ensina uma menina a ler, hoje tive o prazer de assistir a uns momentos de “pê e um á pá” e dei por mim na expectativa de ouvir aquela vozinha conseguir ler de uma vez “completa com as palavras ao lado”, e lá estávamos. “cê e um ó có, e um éme cóm. pê e um éle e um é, plé” e demorámos tanto tempo e depois lá se ouviu “completa com as palavras ao lado” e eu achei que é tão fantástico a capacidade que temos de adquirir informação. aprendemos tantas coisas desde pequeninos e mesmo assim ainda nos chamam ignorantes. é estranho sentar-me à mesa com uma rapariguinha de oito anos que nunca tinha visto e explicar-lhe que o aeiou são as vogais e que existem oito planetas porque plutão deixou de contar, e é estranho esperar ela separe as letras e leia “ca-mi-sa”, é bonito ouvir, no fim. mesmo que dois minutos depois já estejamos de novo a tentar ler “pê e um éle e um é, plé”.
