Click on picture to see video. Baby talk is a rhetorical device of oversimplification. It simplifies reality into good versus bad, us versus them. Bad tends to be anything that differs or disagree. Good is the way of life of myself and my friends.

click on picture to see video. Lohbado bolted a milk crate on a bike carrier above the back wheel of his bicycle and carried things in tote bags to maximize carrying capacity while riding about Montreal. A friend riveted a wooden fence on three sides of the milk crate, which is handy for carrying an extra jacket or whatever is necessary. On a typical bike ride, Lohbado brought a snack, a few bottles of water, a few books to read, plus camera, small tripod and field recorder. As Lohbado got old and ran out of steam, he learned to ride slowly and take plenty of rests.

Pier Pasolo Pasolini's Mama Roma. After a mother and her son fail at becoming part of the mainstream, tragedy happens. An observer exclaims something which sounded like "l'acqua qui passa..." or water under the bridge. It's an unintentionally ironic and cruel comment of a man in response to a mother crying out in despair at discovering her son is dead. The mother's cry and the banal comment had a profound effect, like a tragic cry at the end of a Puccini opera as one arrives a few seconds too late at the scene of tragic death. The movie is about the attempt of people born into oppressive poverty and criminality to improve their situation in order to live as good citizens. The forces that keep them oppressed prove too powerful. The boy dies in detention, in the posture of Mantegna's crucified Christ.
