最孤独的歌者

2017年6月22日 由 JackRubbish 没有评论 »

2016-11-11 梦千寻原创

引言:Leonard Cohen今天去世,伴随着他的歌声,十年青春从我眼前滑过。

下面分享的是另外一位听了十年的歌手,由我2010年到2014年的新浪微博整理而成。

1,《一颗不肯媚俗的心》
听着这张专辑,回想起很多年前我在黑板上写下“一颗不肯媚俗的心”这行字……
世界变化这么快,过去的都会被人们遗忘,就像这张专辑被遗忘一样。
媚俗曾经是一个贬义词,而现在呢?不管是文化产业还是各种互联网产品,多数都靠迎合低级趣味、利用人性的弱点而“成功”。精英主义在中国没有市场,而媚俗走在康庄大道上。

2,梦里的流萤
在《爱情麻辣烫》片尾听到张楚《太阳车》(又名《结婚》),顿时按捺不住。这是最美的情诗,这些句子结结实实地触动人心。
后来我坐在网吧里听了一夜的《梦里的流萤捕捉了你的光》,作者一定受到了张楚的影响。

王洋洋《梦里的流萤捕捉了你的光》歌词:
夜晚山谷里的微风是你
雨水打在湖面 闪动的光影是你
夏日露水里的清香是你
遥远星辰里的绚烂是你

在你面前 我只是匆匆赶路的灵魂
我所有温暖都来自你的目光

太阳落山了你就要离开
我亲手将西边的残阳静静地埋葬

清晨微风在你枕边流淌
一只梦里的流莺捕捉了你的光

张楚《太阳车》完整歌词:
在空旷的星河下 想你
那个在风里游移的光影 是你
在晚风吹起发稍的时候
只留下一个消瘦的是你
在地平线上飘过的太阳车
满车是我的怅惘
你要 奔去何方
再载我一片痴心妄想
燃不尽的西边残云
焚化了最后一张笑颜
那个不再回首的背景
拖过一道玻璃大墙
在你走来的那天
一只梦里的流萤
在捕捉你的眼光

3,张楚《孤独的人是可耻的》的MV
老歌不厌百回听。看着这个古老的MV,想象着那个年代的青春。岁月就像午后透过窗台的光线。为什么我如此怀旧?我就是怀旧。

張楚-孤獨的人是可恥的 (官方完整版MV)

很喜欢的MV,有点实验戏剧的味,张楚,王学兵,贾宏声,还有两位不知名的姑娘,有的花儿已经老了,有的花儿已经谢了。
一开始只觉得旋律好听,慢慢才懂这首歌的意思——“以孤独者自醒,以卑微者自乐”。
“鲜花的爱情是随风飘散,他们并不寻找并不依靠”,张楚是写歌词的高手,不知道他是刻意这样写还是凭着感觉写。最初听张楚,觉得他是一个特别敏感的人,敏感是学不来的。

4,重新听张楚,关于《赵小姐》
啊,熟悉的旋律响起。
许知远推荐过,张楚温情描绘的小人物,像贾樟柯的镜头,还比如那首《爱情》。
重新听张楚,依然觉得他是孤独的天才,音乐生涯的刚开始就到达了如此的高度。《孤独的人是可耻的》《造飞机的工厂》《一颗不肯媚俗的心》这三张专辑是音乐史上无与伦比的。

5,张楚歌词里的流浪
“我们是过客,我们不是归人”(《北方过客》)。
“有人把画,刻在石头上,我读不出方向,读不出时光,我读不出最后是否一定是死亡”(《西出阳关》)。
“在海边,你看见渔家的女儿向大海挥手,沙漠的夜里 你望着骆驼眼睛温柔,二十岁时候,路旁你见我独自一人坐在门口”(《走吧》)。
“你要奔去何方,再载我一片痴心妄想”(《太阳车》)。
“风吹草低见牛羊,奔跑的马群依然强壮。”(《失落城堡的居民》)。
“在没有方向的风中开始跳舞吧 或者紧紧鞋带听远处歌唱”(《冷暖自知》)。
——我随随便便就想到这么多

6,户外的歌
“走出城市空空荡荡/大路朝天没有翅膀/眼里没谁一片光亮/双腿夹着灵魂赶路匆忙忙”……
越来越喜欢张楚的老歌,越听越喜欢这首《冷暖自知》。
他的歌词和很多杰出的现代诗一样被不断解读着,如果我来解析这首也需要写几千字——这首歌内容太多。

浮生若梦,冷暖自知。如鱼饮水,冷暖自知。
或者:
世态炎凉,人情淡漠。人心不古,冷暖自知。
——我喜欢这个成语,“佛教禅宗用以比喻自己证悟的境界”。

不仅于此,这个词还带着张楚式的孤僻。

“冷暖自知”出自《坛经》,张楚唱的是:
“天空的飞鸟总让我张望,它只感到冷暖没有重量”

我喜欢张楚歌里的感伤和苍茫,喜欢张楚歌里的自然风光。
“他走遍了中国大部分的城市,他大部份歌曲创作的时候都是走在路上,独自漂泊。”这首也应该是在户外写的。
“在没有方向的风中开始跳舞吧/或者紧紧鞋带听远处歌唱”,去远足吧,去荒凉、文明稀薄的地方。

7,张楚《蚂蚁蚂蚁》
张楚唱:听一听邻居女儿听听收音机。而我写:听一听邻居大爷听听收音机。

8,走吧!
关于张楚作词作曲的《走吧》,我第一次听到的音频是周思雨唱的。
据说《走吧》是纪念三毛的,据说《孤独的人是可耻的》里“他们并不寻找并不依靠非常的骄傲”就是出自三毛的诗。关于《走吧》,北岛有一首同名的很牛逼的诗。
张楚被称为中国最孤独的歌手,他的声音总是让人感到孤独。早期歌曲孤独而且反叛,就好比这首。
这么多年来,最喜欢的仍然是张楚的这些歌。

9,《和大伙去乘凉》
下午看树下的老头下象棋,更多的老头在围观。这首歌的旋律在回荡。“走在街上,我被天上的太阳晒得漆黑”。

10,荒诞派歌手
知道张楚这个名字,是看了余jie的文章《一个躲着布道的布道者》。第一次听张楚,听的是《苍蝇》《厕所和床》,惊讶他唱的是存在主义和荒诞哲学。
张楚的歌非常知识分子,那些晦涩的思想居然也可以写到歌里。他采访里提到“荒诞”,他是我第一次听到唱“荒诞”的歌手。
觉得张楚刚出道的几年就达到了中国歌词的最顶峰,可惜没几年就歇了。作为歌迷,希望他不要永远消失,想听到更多的好歌。

11,张楚《光明大道》
没人知道我们去哪儿
你要寂寞就来参加
你还年轻他们老了
你想表现自己吧
太阳照到你的肩上
露出你腼腆的脸庞
你还新鲜他们熟了
你担扰你的童贞吧

好久没听这首摇滚歌曲了。看的出,张楚是个容易害臊的人,虽然他唱道:“别害臊,前面是光明的大道!”
张楚是个诗人,这首旋律也很好,非常让人振奋。
“青春含在你的眼睛/幸福写在我背上/尽管不能心花怒放/嘿嘿嘿别沮丧/就当我们只是去送葬”

——去吧少年!!

十九世纪的《猜火车》

2017年6月22日 由 JackRubbish 没有评论 »

版权归作者所有,任何形式转载请联系作者。
作者:梦千寻(来自豆瓣)
来源:https://book.douban.com/review/8770274/

2017-02-14 发布于威信订阅号 ”梦千寻书社“

最近《猜火车2》很火,男主角Mark Reton其实也是一个反英雄形象。这让我回想起少年时代最喜欢的一本书。这么多年过去,它仍然极少被提到,所以我修改了一下旧文,算作我的“千年文学备忘录”之一。假如让我只推荐一本书一部电影一首歌,那这本书一定是《当代英雄》。

1,最后一排书架
校内图书馆的最后一排书架是世界文学,我目光一次次扫过《当代英雄》却一直没翻开,是因为这么好莱坞的名字还有这么好莱坞的封面。我是从来不看通俗小说的。
某天阴错阳差看了《沉默的羔羊》,觉得牛逼极了!然后想看同类型的,就打开了它。没想到序言写的这么好,然后第一个爱情故事《贝拉》就把我迷住了,然后每天夜里都在看这本书。

2,不一样的英雄
《约翰克里斯多夫》有经典的对英雄的定义:“真正的英雄决不是永没有卑下的情操,只是永不被卑下的情操所屈服罢了”。
可是,这样一个冷酷自私空虚无聊、到处寻找刺激的贵族军官怎能称得上“当代英雄”?他不是不怕死,而是周国平所说的“厌生慕死”。
2008年看了英文版的,译名是A Hero of Our Time,我觉得这样的大白话反而更有韵味。“当代英雄”不如“我们这个时代的英雄”。果不其然,俄文原著《Герой нашего времени》谷歌翻译的结果也是这样的。
在小说最后一部分,主人公死去之后,读着他的日记,疑问才慢慢解开。不得不和故事讲述者一样感叹——他是我们时代的一个英雄。

3,普希金和莱蒙托夫
普希金和蒙托夫一样是“多余人”文学的代表人物,而且莱蒙托夫和普希金一样死于决斗。

诗人死了,这荣誉的俘虏!
他受尽流言蜚语的中伤,
胸饮了铅弹,渴望着复仇,
垂下了高傲的头颅身亡!

普希金死于决斗后,莱蒙托夫写了《诗人之死》来抨击沙皇,进步人士把莱蒙托夫看做普希金的继承人,不巧的是莱蒙托夫也继承了普希金的死法——决斗。不同的是,普希金38岁单挑身亡,而莱蒙托夫27岁单挑身亡。

4,莱蒙托夫的诗歌
《当代英雄》的小说技艺现在看来依然很高超,这位早逝天才还留下了不朽的诗歌和绘画。
莱蒙托夫的长诗我看不大懂,但觉才气逼人,其中不乏神来之笔。

下面这首是《帆》:

在大海的蒙蒙青雾中
一叶孤帆闪着白光……
它在远方寻求什么?
它把什么遗弃在故乡?
风声急急,浪花涌起,
桅杆弯着腰声声喘息……
啊,——它既不是寻求幸福,
也不是在把幸福逃避!
帆下,水流比蓝天清亮,
帆上,一线金色的阳光……
而叛逆的帆呼唤着风暴,
仿佛唯有风暴中才有安详!

大部分人是因为这首短诗而知道莱蒙托夫这个名字的。

(英文版,出版年2001,我当初是在豆瓣某网友的网盘里下载的)

5,先锋小说
长篇小说《当代英雄》由《贝拉》、《马克西姆·马克西梅奇》、《塔曼》、《梅丽公爵小姐》、《宿命论者》等短篇组成,几个故事的组合浑然一体。
《当代英雄》被评价为俄罗斯文学中的第一部心理小说,被我评价为最早的以及最杰出的先锋小说。
人家两百年前就开始先锋了好不好?

我喜欢的南京作家曹寇接受采访时说:
先锋是一种品质,而绝非流派,更不可能是文学史教材里的陈述。先锋作家可以进入到平庸之辈从未进入的绝境。所以在我看来,杜甫和曹雪芹也很先锋,而余秋雨却很腐朽。

不论从形式、风格、技法还是品质来说,《当代英雄》都是先锋小说的典型代表。

6,酷
《当代英雄》是一部风格奇特的小说,同时也是游记、日记、爱情历险、忏悔录。
虽然写于1839到1841,但现在看来依然无比的酷。是的,有一种小说可以用酷来形容。
很酷,这是我的第一感觉,或者说这个小说装逼装出了历史最高水准。
主人公毕巧林也可以用酷哥来形容。我对这个怪胎一见如故,一眼就看出他是个诗人、哲学家。

7,高加索
说它也是游记,那这也是最好看的高加索游记,大段大段的高加索风光让我心驰神往,从来没有任何一部小说里的风景描写让我这么入迷。

高加索地区在当时的俄罗斯人的心目中,乃是一片不开化的荒蛮之地,然而在莱蒙托夫的笔下,这里的群山、森林、河流充满着神奇、绚烂、让人心醉神迷的自然风光,弥漫着与生俱来的自由、勇敢、奔放和乐天的精神。格鲁吉亚、契尔卡斯、卡尔巴达、奥塞梯……形形色色的民族与复杂错综的历史和语言文化,无不激发诗人对生命、自由和人的价值展开广袤无垠的遐想,同时也获得许多丰富厚重的启迪。
(这段摘自眭谦-伯昏子的新浪博客)

8,思想深度
在周国平文集里看到他对《当代英雄》中的存在主义哲学内涵的解析,后来在百度文库上看了几篇很长的论文更觉得它的深刻。
《当代英雄》和加缪、萨特的小说一样,让我觉得小说是阐释哲学的最好载体。

9,俄罗斯文学
我也有着浓厚的俄罗斯文学情结,俄罗斯文学的高峰数不胜数,莱蒙托夫的《当代英雄》也是其中一座。
同样是苦难的大地,中国的文人却都是懦夫或者郭沫若那种走狗。

列了这么多条,最迷的还是故事本身。

当我回顾往事,经常自问:
为什么我不想走命运给我的那条路?
那里有清静的欢乐和心灵的和平等待着我……
不,我不愿安于这种命运!

那不愿安逸的冲动,召唤每颗年轻的心!

王小波二十年祭(一)龟头血肿和阴茎倒挂

2017年6月21日 由 JackRubbish 没有评论 »

这个系列写于王小波二十周年忌辰,一直没好意思贴出来,因为装逼没装好
今晚贴在这里,这是我第二个豆瓣账号

王小波二十年祭(一)龟头血肿和阴茎倒挂
摘要:第一部分说的是王小波《黄金时代》的两个小典故,那是我第一次读王小波

还有几篇草稿还没整理好:
第一部分《龟头血肿和阴茎倒挂》(一个黑色幽默和一个黄色幽默)
第二部分《智慧在混沌中诞生》(王小波的杂文)
第三部分《长安城里的一切都在无可避免的走向庸俗》(唐人故事)
第四部分《XX在混沌钟诞生》(王小波的x爱描写)
第五部分《王小波的师承》(谈文学理论)
第六部分《一群特殊的猪》(谈王小波门下走狗)

       (年轻时期的王小波,这是他的黄金时代,此文的两个例子也是来自《黄金时代》)

还记得那天放学,我像往常一样,去买最新一期的《南方周末》。几乎整版都在谈王小波,原来是他的十年祭。
那是2007年4月,那时我还不会上网。
十年一觉小说梦。这些年我看到无数的我喜欢的作者写王小波,今天是他二十周年忌辰,我忍不住亲自怀念一下伟大的偶像。

1,龟头血肿和阴茎倒挂
首先要提醒的是,从这两个不雅的词汇说起并非本人的油滑,仅仅是忠实于时间的顺序。

让我翻开王小波的是那本风靡一时的青春小说《草样年华》,沈浩波在简介里这样推荐孙睿:
他完全继承了京味作家幽默洒脱的文风,他的小说有着王朔式的幽默,却没有王朔的油滑;有着王小波式的睿智,却没有王小波的炫耀;有着石康式的浑不吝,却不像石康那样一味地颓靡。

于是就去买了王小波的文集,封面上的王小波像一个油滑的老农民。后来看到他美国旅游拍的几张照片,一副老油条的样子。最初喜欢读王小波的小说,就是因为油滑。我只看到他小说最表面的东西——黑色幽默和黄色幽默,“龟头血肿”和“阴茎倒挂”这样的例子比比皆是。
文革是真实的荒诞,最黑色的幽默。王小波说:梦具有一种荒诞的真实性,而真实有一种真实的荒诞性。

                                                (我买的第一本王小波的书)

现在我们院的人都在背后叫李先生龟头血肿,包括那些没结婚的小姑娘。她们说,李先生原是日本人,姓龟头,名血肿。这是不对的。李先生从未到过日本。他叫这个名字,是因为他挨了一脚后,十分气愤,就把医院的诊断书抄出来寻求公道,那诊断中有这样的字句:“阴囊挫伤,龟头血肿”。他寻到的公道就是从此被叫作龟头血肿,一肿二十三年,至今还没消。
——摘自王小波《似水流年》

                                                     (《似水流年》封面)

关于龟头血肿,我这里也见过一个黑色幽默的故事,那是我高中时期的x人x事。
不知什么时候校园里流行一种惊险刺激的游戏,具体是这样玩的——走廊上有一些靠在栏杆上聊天或看美女的男同学,瞄准其中一个的裆部,若无其事地 走到身边,忽然飞出龙爪手对其xx部位进行猛的一击,然后迅速逃离。
其实也就是军训“弓步撩裆”的学以致用,动作分解以及动作要领如下:

悄悄地并拢双掌,同时大腿肌、腓肠肌暗暗发力,靠近目标xx的时候忽然下蹲,左膝深屈,右腿伸直,目视靶心,将一切力量的焦点集中于两个食指的最前端,将全身639块肌肉的力量传递到并拢的两个食指的最前端,然后对准xx部位正中心位置致以果断的一击。

这招又名“虎步撩裆”,委实是个杀手锏,与之配套的“弹裆顶肘”可以一齐使用。使用这个招式,据说男对男和女对男都是一招制敌。

这个游戏大家玩的乐此不疲,被撩到的气急败坏地反击,不回撩一下誓不罢休,有时上课铃响了他们还在走廊上奋力戳撩。
同学们总是心慈手软地点到为止,但总有极少数破坏规矩,下手极狠,受到重创的同学数十分钟不能站起。
后来,班主任忽然召开了一个特殊的班会,他沉默了五分钟之后,非常沉痛地说:大家不要再撩了!!!
原因是某个同学的被撩的龟头血肿,其家长郑重其事地到学校反映了情况。这个真实事件我写在《同学少年都很贱》一文里,这里不展开讲述。
人不淫荡枉少年,当我们回顾往事的时候,并没有因为过于淫荡而感到羞耻。“弓步撩裆”是我黄金时代的一个缩影。

                                                         (《黄金时代》封面)

“阴茎倒挂”是王小波读者引用最多的一个意象,我印象中大概是这样的:王二趴在海滩上,海天一色万物混沌,渐渐陷入冥想:走在寂静里,走在天上,而阴茎,则倒挂下来。

可能是我记错了,因为我谷歌了一下,他这样写的:

    好多年前,我在京郊插队时,常常在秋天走路回家,路长得走不完。我心里紧绷绷,不知道走到哪里去,也不知走完了路以后干什么。路边全是高高的杨树,风过处无数落叶就如一场黄金雨从天顶飘落。风声呼啸,时紧时松。风把道沟里的落叶吹出来,像金色的潮水涌过路面。我一个人走着,前后不见一个人。忽然之间,我的心里开始松动。走着走着,觉得要头朝下坠入蓝天,两边纷纷的落叶好像天国金色的大门。我心里一荡,一些诗句涌上心头。就在这一瞬间,我解脱了一切苦恼,回到存在本身。

    我看到天蓝得像染过一样。薄暮时分,有一个人从小路上走来,走得飞快,踢土扬尘的姿势多熟悉呀!我追上去在她肩上一拍,她一看是我,就欢呼起来:“是他妈的你!是他妈的你!”这是我插队时的女友小转铃。

    我们迎着风走回去,我给她念了刚刚想到的诗,其中有这样的句子:

    走在寂静里,走在天上,

    而阴茎倒挂下来。

    虽然她身上没有什么可以倒挂下来,但是她说可以想象。小转铃真是个难得的朋友,她什么都能想象。

——摘自王小波《三十而立》

                                                      (《三十而立》封面)

真是天马行空,我当场就被王小波天才的想象震撼住了。相比之下,我的小说显得很直白。我当年的校园小说里有这样的对话:

     男同学:蛋疼
     女同学:我要是有蛋我也疼了
     XXX真是个难得的同事,她什么都能分担。

王小波许多小说中主人公都取名“王二”,他在全家五个孩子中排行老四,在男孩中排行老二。《黄金时代》里的王二也有很多,有的五短身材奇丑无比,有的身高两米奇丑无比。鄙人这相貌也是奇丑无比,所不同的是,鄙人没有王二的想象力,也没有王二的文字天赋,这一点我自己后来也发现了,但这丝毫不影像我依然喜欢写小说,并且把主人公也取名为王二。

想起了Aaron Swartz

2016年7月19日 由 JackRubbish 没有评论 »

(我2013-1-29的微博)

去年快过年看到亚伦·斯沃茨(Aaron Swartz;1986年11月8日-2013年1月11日)的新闻,然后在dailymail.co.uk等网站看了一些报道。
他10年前在一封玩笑似的的电子遗嘱里说:
“我要求我的硬盘中所有内容全部公开,不能有一点儿篡改,不能有一点儿删除,不
能保留一点儿秘密,要让每个人都能自由而完整地获取全部信息”。
“还有件事就是,我会很想念你们的,你们每一个人。”
——我们也会想念你的。
(我2014-1-16的微博)

看到了新闻:“随着棱镜门事件走向平静,斯诺登在俄罗斯也开始过上正常的生活。其中,斯诺登为了公开情报而被迫抛弃的女友米尔斯,来到了俄罗斯和他团聚,两人破镜重圆。”
而Aaron Swartz的前女友则相反,艾伦父亲在13年是这样说的:“她对艾伦的背叛是毁灭性的。”
2013年1月在dailymail.co.uk上看到Aaron Swartz自杀的新闻,当时的舆论和现在是不一样的,随着时间的推移,真相才慢慢浮出水面。(我2015年3月29日的微博)

昨夜又看了一遍《The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz》,在我心目中,Aaron Swartz这样的人才是真正的黑客。他的死是我们整个时代的耻辱和悔恨,我们这个世界配不上他的纯真和正义。(我2015-11-01的微博)

“And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.” —Douglas Coupland

阿月浑子果《穿越海岸线—写在骑行厦门前》

2016年6月17日 由 JackRubbish 没有评论 »

梦千寻书社点评:
还是那句话:那不愿安逸的冲动,召唤每一颗年轻的心。

时隔短短几个月,又要整装出发。虽然早已经习惯了出门远游,但内心仍然小小兴奋不能自已。
以前跟朋友说过,旅程最让我激动的不是到达目的地的时刻。作为一个多少去过些地方的旅者,已经很难得有什么风景能够让我心驰神往的了。
记得骑行川藏线即将到达拉萨市区,看到布达拉宫的一刻,内心根本没有预想的那样会喜极而泣,看着布达拉的金顶在落日下反射出耀眼金光,反倒是显得极其平静。关于第一眼见到布达拉的感受,我问过很多川藏线上的旅者,苦逼骑行的人大多显得平静而自然,兴奋异常的往往是那些搭车轻松赶到目的地的人。
对于这个现象,我的理解是,或许追求过程本身的人,对于结果是怎样往往大多显得特别坦然。
想到这里我就释然很多。虽然已经很少有难忘的风景,但至少我还是很享受在路上的心情,OK,这样就仍然会有很棒的旅行。
如果轮回中有一世,能够做一颗蒲公英轻灵的种子,那么求一场狂风,把生命尽情的吹向远方。
真正的旅行应当是一场对平淡的阴谋颠覆。慵懒的人要去体会汗流浃背;羞涩的人要去尝试广结善缘;狭隘的人要去见识人间百态••••••
要问我的旅行是什么,那便是可以快乐的和众人狂欢,也体会独单的去承受苦难。
生活中往往没有通向罗马的条条大路。很多时候,哪怕尝试过几次错路、岔路、绕路,也依然看不见罗马。而且说不定连路都没有,后退无门,向前确唯有披荆斩棘。
每一种际遇都仿佛是一次旅行。想上路,越是想看到美丽的风景,越是要做足功课。哪怕殚精竭虑的准备,路线、行程、天气、地理,依然会出现不可预知的问题将旅程打乱。既然认准了属于自己的跑道和线路,那不管线路是体会生命的宽度、时间的长度还是人世的深度,那便唯有默默承受寂寥和无常的反复,深沉、坦荡的向前踏步。
打点好行装,收拾好心情,在逃离末日浩劫后这个新年伊始,重新在路上。这一次,没有蜀道难难于上青天的艰险,没有让人胆寒的悬崖峭壁,没有折腾到肝颤的重重山峦,但是穿越东部漫长的海岸线,此途定不会寂寞!
好吧,那就这样,厦门,走起!
