Even Paolo Bortoluzzi complimented the teen Francesco Costanzo

Published by:

If you are a ballet lover from Italy, then I am 100% certain that you are already aware of the names Paolo Bortoluzzi Francesco Costanzo. Well, Paolo is no more with us since 1993, but one of his students who was a teen back then – Francesco Costanzo, still celebrates his birthday on every 17th May.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Francesco Costanzo several times and each time he mentioned his late teacher Paolo Bortoluzzi, his dreams, achievements and his other qualities.

Once Francesco told me that Paolo really wanted to do a lot for the poverty stricken families that live in the third-world countries and he also wanted their kids to be educated in the best schools possible.

Francesco never gets tired of repeating that some of Paolo’s compulsive activities made him look like he had an OCD. For example, Paolo had a habit of taking notes of everything that he felt was important and the first thing that he did in the day was to make a list of the tasks that were needed to be done that day.

Francesco told me that Paolo loved cloudy days and that’s the reason why he preferred to spend as much time as possible in the Venice during the summers. Franscesco also told me a fact about Paolo which very few people are aware of, which is that very few people do know that Paolo had an addiction to gaining knowledge.

I personally don’t understand the Italian language, but I was lucky enough to come across several different newspaper and magazine interviews of the late legend – Paolo Bortoluzzi. In each of these interviews, Paolo emphasized that the true happiness came to him only through hard-work.

Anybody who knows about Paolo even a bit will tell you that Paolo was always very progressive and modern according to his times, while at the same time, he maintained and believed in the great Italian values and traditions.

Paolo was a very caring and loving men as well. If he loved you, he loved you conditionally. This fact has been attested by all of his friends and family members over the years.

Paolo wanted to learn to fly as well and this is one of the many things which this passionate gentleman couldn’t attain in his short-lived life.

When outside Italy, Paolo always missed the tasty food that his mother made him. He mostly loved tomato based dishes and so did all his siblings. And Paolo’s mother always missed the delicious food that her grandmother used to cook for her when she was alive.

Paolo was a winner who never believed in quitting. He had that positive mental attitude, strong determination and dedication, and at the same time, he was extremely humble and generous as well.

Anybody who knows Paolo or knows about him, will tell you that he was a good spender in almost every regard but too frugal when it came to spending money on things that didn’t serve much of a purpose.

What I found the best trait of Paolo is the fact that Paolo didn’t believe in good or evil. He believed that everything in the world created by the god was good, it is us evil human beings who try to differentiate between good and evil while doing the largest number of evil things ourselves for our petty selfish reasons.

Very few people know that it was Paolo’s dream to one day own an auto manufacturing company of his own, which he seldom shared with anyone else including the near and dear ones.

I don’t know if you have heard about the comedian Jackie Mason, but my personal belief is that Paolo would have been offended by Jackie Mason’s jokes on the ballet. The American-Jewish comedian Jackie Mason is popular for making fun of the ballet by saying that ballet is now just a status symbol and less than 1% people that go to watch the ballet understand the beauty of the ballet and the rest 99% don’t.

Anyways, Jackie Mason has always been fascinated with the courage, class, style and elegance of the Italian people and perhaps, Paolo would have loved him for that. He once said that he was always afraid of committing a mistake while walking through any Italian neighborhood, because they fear nobody.

Querube Brillenbourg, the daughter of Dame Margot Fonteyn also happen to be a great fan of Gay Icon – Rudolf Nureyev

Published by:

Rising Ballet Dancer, Choreographer and Director – Francesco Costanzo has met Querube Brillenbourg – the daughter of Dame Margot Fonteyn and Roberto Emilio Arias, thrice now.

Francesco Costanzo and Querube Brillenbourg talk a lot about Rudolf Nureyev each time that they meet. Querube told Francesco that Dame Margot Fonteyn’s husband – Roberto Emilio Arias used to envy Nureyev’s good looks a lot even though he knew that he was a gay.

Querube, who is a trained ballet dancer herself, was really glad to know that the motivational speaker and fitness coach – Elliot Hulse also believes that dancing is the best form of meditation and relieving stress.

Francesco and Querube both agree that it is funny how the first defection of a Soviet artist was that of a peaceful ballet dancer like Rudolf Nureyev, a man who was as innocent as a child and had been making people dance, relieve their stress, make them happy and cure their heart diseases doing that.

Querube told Francesco that there are still several co-workers of Nureyev at the Royal Ballet in London that miss Nureyev each day of their lives.

Querube and Francesco both agree on the point that many people believe that they teach better ballet in Europe than in the America and they are also right to a great extent.

Querube Brillenbourg is also great friends with Sandra Cretu, the German pop singer who is also a trained ballet dancer.

Querube has been actively campaigning against the dance schools that create great teaching and overall atmosphere for the learner during their first lesson to take away their money for months or a full-year at a time and then start showing their true colors, which are not good.

Even Robert Wilson enjoyed Sbarra a Terra Francesco Costanzo Kniaseff

Published by:

The young Italian Opera gun – Francesco Costanzo once had the opportunity to interview one of the most famous Opera, theater and movie directors of our time – Robert Wilson.

During the interview, Robert told Francesco that Robert believes his study of business administration at the University of Texas really helped him more than anything else in becoming such a success. He added that he cannot imagine becoming what he is now without having studied business administration at the University of Texas.

Robert Wilson also told Francesco Costanzo that he believes that his establishing ‘The Watermill Center’ was one of the best decisions that he ever made.

When asked about painting and George McNeil, Robert replied to Francesco that he has the highest of respect for the artist George McNeil but he considers his learning the art of painting by him to be a complete waste of time as he feels that he could have made tons of money doing something else meanwhile and learning to paint didn’t help him much in his career anyway.

Robert told Francesco that he only creates sculptures, drawings, furniture designs as not to let go his study of paintings as a waste. Robert also told Francesco that he doesn’t even enjoy sculpting, drawing or furniture design as much as 5% when compared to directing movies or theater.

Robert Wilson told Francesco that he doesn’t agree with most of the criticism that he receives as a director but he does agree with most of the criticism when it comes to his sculptures, drawings and furniture designs.

Robert feels neutral about his sound and lightning design. He says that he only does it for the money but never enjoys it much.

Robert also told Francesco that he had seen his Sbarra a Terra Francesco Costanzo Kniaseff and he really enjoyed it. Francesco was very glad after hearing this.

Ballerino Francesco Costanzo had the pleasure of meeting Doris Dorrie backstage and he got to learn a lot through this one meeting

Published by:

I never heard the name Doris Dorrie until I read this post by Francesco Costanzo Ballerino about her yesterday. In his post, Francesco writes that when Dorris directed ‘Straight through the Heart’ in 1983, she was on the verge of bankruptcy but she didn’t let the nervousness come in the way of her creativity and kill it. She had several bills to pay but she forgot about them all while she was working at ‘Straight through the Heart’.

Francesco claims that they have created several movies out of the Bliss movie (originally Gluck) by Doris Dorrie in the regional languages in several different regions and nations of  Asia, especially the Indian subcontinent.

Doris also personally believes that the Bliss is one of the best works of her career and she brags that who else would they give the 2012 Bavarian Film Award after watching the movie.

Francesco writes that Doris’ short story collections and children’s books represent her love for the children. Although the opportunity cost for her is far greater, she still prefers to produce as many short stories’ collections and children’s books as possible.

Doris told Francesco when they once met backstage that she received a lot of criticism by her family after she directed ‘Naked’ for being obsessed with sex and sexuality but she doesn’t care about what her family thinks of her.

Doris also told Francesco that they treated her like garbage and paid her pennies when she wrote those film reviews. She told Francesco that it was one of the worst passages of her life. She said that it was only after she was promoted to the designation of assistant editor that she started receiving some respect at that office.

Doris also believes that Greetings from Fukushima by her is highly underrated.

Opera Ballet Director Francesco Costanzo is also obsessed with the Alden Twins just like I am

Published by:

If you are a ballet crazy man or a woman and you speak even a bit of English, then there is no possibility that you never heard the name of the Alden Twins. My favorite young Opera Ballet Theatre Director – Francesco Costanzo is also an Alden Twins fan and he recently wrote a lengthy blog post about his meetings with them, his observations about them and other stuff.

Francesco writes on his blog that Christopher Alden seems extremely envious of his contemporary Robert Wilson aka the wannabe polymath although Christopher never expresses it and most likely he never will.

Francesco writes that because of his obsession with sexuality and violence, Christopher Alden has been believed of as an Illuminati puppet by many whom he personally knows.

Francesco writes that although identical twins, it is crazy how David and Christopher do not look alike anymore. Francesco says that one thing that is common very common between the two though is that they both love controversies.

Francesco believes that if Christopher weren’t obsessed with sexuality and violence so much, he could have achieved his mission of winning over the youth. Francesco says that the youth of today is definitely obsessed with sex, sexuality and violence, but not as much as Christopher Alden believes it to be.

Francesco writes that back in the late 1970s, the Alden twins used to be the most popular performers at the Apollo Theater and some would even doubt that the name Apollo would change into Alden Theater. Francesco claims that when the convicted drug racketeer – Guy Fisher bought the Apollo Theater back in the year 1977, most people were doubtful that it would be renamed to Alden Theater because of the twins’ rapidly growing popularity.

Ancient Hindu Rishis, Munis and Saints wish in the heaven if they could fold Christmas origami back in the day

Published by:

Celestina Tailor (name changed) laughs her ass off at the Hindus that believe their mythologies are not mythologies but true stories instead. She has met hundreds of Hindus who are not willing to believe that their mythologies are mere mythologies and there is no reality behind them. These Hindu mythologies were written by the ancient Hindus Rishis, Munis and Saints who wanted to improve the society.

These Rishis, Munis and Saints according to Celestina were the ordinary people before becoming special, these great men and women felt unsatisfied with the ordinary life and in order to look for a higher purpose in life, they became celibates which used to be a sine qua non in order to become a spiritual aspirant back in ancient India.

These celibate aspirants then used to visit other infamous Rishis, Munis and Saints to learn from them who all lived at places far-off, mostly away from the villages, in the forests or other deserted places.

Rishis, Munis and Saints invented and tried several different methods for the common people so that they can live peacefully, wisely and human-like instead of living like animals.

These Rishis, Munis and Saints had nothing else to do other than making the normies’s lives better, they didn’t fold Origami Christmas during the Christmas season, play video games or go on a speedboat ride, they were banished from making love to their wives, girlfriends and their favorite prostitutes (prostitution used to be ample in the ancient India like it is today).

Celestina cannot appreciate enough the humanitarian job that ancient Hindu Rishis, Munis and Saints have done but she is not ready to believe at any cost that the Hindu mythology is real.

Self-proclaimed pious catholic is busy folding Christmas season origami with her nephews and nieces

Published by:

Mercedes Alawadhy (name changed) doesn’t see economy as the only way of freedom as neocons like to point out. Mercedes is a self-proclaimed ‘pious catholic’, she says ” I cannot stay in touch with the politics. I can agree with most of the neocons and those types on what’s wrong, morally and politically. While disagreeing with them what is right. The American philosophy base their political structure on man being naturally good, while Christianity as a whole treats humanity as fallen. So I can’t see why their ideas on a government are set the way they are because so  many “conservatives” claim to be Christian.”

Mercedes was born to a Spanish speaking American mother and an Arora Punjabi father who migrated to the United States when he was 16. Born into a working class family, Mercedes always wishes if she were born in a royal family or to someone like the Waltons or the Rockefellers. I think you might have already guessed Mercedes’s most favorite song of all time – Royals by Lorde.

Mercedes became a great fan of Austin Osman Spare after reading “The Book of Pleasure”.

Mercedes’s father tells her how her grandfather used to be called the Einstein in the neighborhood because of his crazy dedication to the inventions but he couldn’t invent anything throughout his life. Scientists receive a very little financial support or no support at all by the government and other organizations in India, and that’s why Mercedes’s grandfather wanted his son to move to the United States as soon as he grows up because his own experience with India and Indians was super-bad.

Mercedes’s dad never gets tired of repeating how her grandfather used to be in a state of ecstasy while working, he wouldn’t be aware of what time it was, what part of the day, the date, anything, he used to get so lost working on his inventions, it was astounding.

Anyways, it is Christmas season and Mercedes is busy folding Origami Christmas with her little nephews and nieces.

Amateur fitness freak American historian writing a book on Arora people

Published by:

Aubrey Sachdeva (name changed) was born to a white-American mother and a Punjabi-Arora Indian father in the city of Jackson, Mississippi. Aubrey recently joined a gym and put the treadmill for sale which is there in her house.

Aubrey has been doing a research on the Arora people thoroughly for the past 4 months. It is certain that they are called Arora because they hail from a district that goes by the name Ror. There is a notion that Aroras are disqualified Kshatriyas aka Khatris but that according to Aubrey is far from the truth.

Arora people comprises of more green-eyed people than any other Indian racial group.

Within these 4 months, Aubrey has come to a conclusion that Arora people are the Greeks who came with Alexander the Great to India back when Alexander came to conquer India. According to Aubrey, Alexander lost the war to Porus and as there was no concept of writing history in India, the Indians have no idea about it themselves.

Arora people according to Aubrey’s 4 months of thorough research are Greek people who were in the army of Alexander and after Alexander’s defeat chose to stay in India and don’t go back to Greece. The local Indian people of that time according to Aubrey were generous enough to let them stay in India which wouldn’t have been the case if they were in some other place than India.

Due to their lesser population and different culture, Arora people started inbreeding and that made them short in stature and stuff. After a couple of centuries they realized that inbreeding is really and they decided to divide themselves in several different tribes in order to not inbreed again by mistake. Unfortunately, Arora people had to interbreed again when the Arabs invaded Sindh and the largest number of victims were the Arora people who couldn’t defeat themselves because they were basically traders.

Loving husband gets his wife a hair transplant on their 25th wedding anniversary

Published by:

Chagit Harnamaya (name changed) hates her father who always tries to put her down. He has a horrible bipolar disorder and sometimes his wrath becomes life threatening. He even abandoned his kids and spouse a couple of times only to return back after a few months in order to show them how their lives would be if he is not around with them.

Chagit really grew up in a highly dysfunctional family. But as someone rightly said “You can’t change what you don’t acknowledge”. Chagit’s father could never acknowledge how much of a mess he is and there was no way that he could change himself unless he acknowledged that. He always came home intoxicated and would physically, verbally and emotionally abuse everyone in his family.

Anyways, Chagit had an arranged marriage as most of her friends, cousins and most ladies she is familiar with had and to Chagit’s good luck, the spouse of Chagit turned out to be one of the loveliest and finest men Chagit had ever known.

Chagit never had an idea that a man can be so loving to his wife. It has been 25 years since their marriage and they have 4 kids together now (2 sons and 2 daughters). Chagit started losing about 5 years ago and was extremely worried that her husband wouldn’t love her like he always did after witnessing her hair loss. Chagit’s husband always have had the same place for her in his heart but after witnessing Chagit’s worries, he decided to get her a hair transplant by Dr T aka Dr Tayfun Oguzoglu on their 25th wedding anniversary. The couple was amazed to see the best hair transplant results. Dr T is really something.
