Black Friday Memoires

Black Friday Photoshoot

EN:

So it's Black Friday you say? Not exactly a holiday nor a Friday like any other.

Seen as the start of the Christmas shopping season, this day begs us to go shopping and enjoy the variety and availability of the products on our market.

A celebration of consumerism? - Yes, definitely.

Does it make us reflect about how much and unnecessary we're spending? - No, definitely.

Why not? Because us, modern people, were educated to enjoy owning goods. To fill our lives with them and in them, to seek happiness. And when we find it - and often we do- artifacts are born like: Black Friday.

But let's not be so critical! After all, we all love discounts and promotions!

But the atmosphere is not exactly like Christmas jolly, when we get gifts to make others happy. It's too much about ourselves, and that's somehow sad ... don't you think?

I added some pictures of an outfit inspired by the day, and below I will tell you exactly how I spent it.

 

It all started yesterday, at around 7 pm ..

RO:

Si asa s-a facut Black Friday. Nu tocmai o sarbatoare, nici o vineri ca oricare alta.

Privita ca inceputul sezonului de Craciun pentru magazine, aceasta zi ne instiga sa mergem la shopping si sa ne bucuram de varietatea si accesibilitatea produselor pe care la avem pe piata.

O celebrare a consumerismului? - Da, cu siguranta.

Ne face sa ne gandim cat de mult si inutil cheltuim? - Nu, cu siguranta.

De ce nu? Pentru ca noi, oamenii moderni, am fost educati sa ne bucuram de bunuri. Sa ne umplem viata cu ele si sa le cautam de fericire. Iar cand o gasim - si o gasim adesea - se nasc astfel de artificii: Black Friday.

Dar sa nu mai fim atat de critici! Pana la urma suntem cu totii incantati la ideea reducerilor si promotiilor!

Insa atmosfera creata nu e tocmai veselia de craciun, cand cumparaturile inseamna bucuria celuilalt. Acum e prea mult despre noi, iar asta e cumva trist... nu ti-se pare?

 

Ti-am adus poze cu o tinuta inspirata din aceasta zi, si mai jos, am sa-ti povestesc exact cum a fost si ziua de azi.

 

Totul a inceput ieri, in jurul orei 7 seara..

"I got it!" I roar with a flash of inspiration. "Let's go get him, wrap something around his eyes and put him in all sorts of situations." Andrei does not follow me. While my imagination is running wild withthriller scenarios, he asked me "wait, wait, what kind of situations? Jeez! What do you want us to do to the poor guy?"

"What? Torture him, of course. - I'm kidding. Let's just make him drink lots of shots.. we can go on a pub crawl, make him run around, we find code names, tattoo him something hilarious, I don't know, we'll figure it out ..oh, and take pictures, so he'll be left with great memories."

With a list and two phone calls later, we conceived the plan. I boarded the car with teaspoons and cake, candles and a lighter, two bottles of champagne, hola-hola flowers I got at a party in my youth, napkins ( I'm pretty sure we'll need ) and all my accessories for my GoPro Hero. Ah, and friends!

I put the camera on the birthday boys head for the night. Timelaps! -  Every 10sec it takes another picture. Since it's sicked to his forehead, all pictures will have his perspective. That was Andrei's idea!

Pub after pub, friends and strangers. Champagne showers over our city. Shisha with watermelon and mint and plates with food served much too late!

At 4 am our game ended, and I, aka Morgan ( from Morgan Freeman), the narrator of the evening, went to sleep.

"Stiuuuuu ce facem!" racnesc cu o sclipire de moment. "Hai sa mergem sa-l luam, sa-l legam la ochi si sa-l punem in tot felul de stiuatii." Andrei nu ma urmarea. In timp ce in imaginatia mea filmul serii se desfasura ca in thrillere, el ma intreba "bine, bine, dar ce fel de situatii? Ce sa-i facem la bietu' om?"

"Cum? Il torturam! - Glumesc. Il ducem sa bea shoturi, facem un pub crawl, il punem sa alerge, ne gasim nume de cod, ii facem tatuaj, habar n-am, gasim noi.. Facem poze, asa, sa aiba ce sa-si aminteasca."

Cu o lista si doua telefoane mai tarziu concepusem planul. Mi-am imbarcat masina cu lingurite si tort, lumanari si bricheta, doua sticle de sampanie flori de hola-hola de la ceva petrecere cu Jaeger din tinerete, servetele ( sigur vom avea nevoie ) si toate accesoriile de la GoPro Hero. Ah, si prietenii!

I-am pus sarbatoritului aparatul pe cap. Timelaps! - o data la 10sec facea din nou cate o poza, iar fiindu-i prins de frunte, puteam vedea lumea din perspectiva lui. Asta a fost ideea lui Andrei.

Local dupa local, prieteni si straini, ploaia cu sampanie deasupra Clujlui, narhilea cu pepene rosu si menta.. si platouri cu mancare servite muuult prea tarziu.

Pe la 4 dimineata s-a terminat cu joaca, iar eu, a.k.a. Morgan ( de la Morgan Freeman ), povestitorul serii, am putut pune geana pe geana.

The alarm woke me up early in the morning..then the following: a meeting with Look TV, a shopping session at M.A.C, a new obsession, a bowl of hot water and two feet sinking in it, now my gym bagand I'm off to World Class.

Tonight Villalobos and Midi sounds and the buzz of dancers in the hall.

Shots up! - Yet an unforgettable night is awaiting.

Dimineata a sunat alarma devreme, o intalnire cu Look TV, o sesiune de shopping la M.A.C, o noua obsesie, un lighian cu apa fierbinte si doua picioruse dezgolite, acum geanta de sala si am plecat catre World Class.

Diseara suna a Villalobos si Midi si zumzetul dansului din sala.

Shoturi sus! - Mai urmeaza inca o noapte de neuitat.
