JC’s came from NYC in NM town!

with 26 comments

photo-91.jpgMy_best friend Jean-Christophe Couet from Famu years came today to Novo mesto. He lives in NYC and he’s notorious for many things. On one occasion Žiga Koritnik had an exhibition in NYC and JC came to Žiga and greeted him Žiga, ti čefur, good show. No need to mention that JC’s Slovenian nickname is Čefur.

About the images… Don’t ask… Some pictures were done at FAMU years between 1994 – 97, at Fabrica 2000 and from today. Million dollar question is which pictures are recent? 6140135_borut_peterlin.jpg6142124_borut_peterlin.jpg08_1_3_1_05_borut_peterlin.jpg17_059_borut_peterlin.jpg18_74_borut_peterlin.jpgphoto-81.jpg

  4. Borut, I still think you should sketch your pictures before taking them. You know so you know before hand what you photograph.

  10. It was really nice to meet real Čefur in 2001 beetween all these New Yorkers. Then I was just looking and checking opportunity to have exhibition in Leica gallery – we met there. He was following me and spoke to me after we left the bulding. Few days later I got contract for the exhibition at Kavehaz cafe gallery in Soho ( they moved now I don’t know where)and had later in february my first show in NY. I returned to NY last year where I had my show at Vision jazz festival – when we unfortunately didn’t have chance to meet.

  12. Nika,

    I recommend that you start with the teachings of Jean-Christophe and Borut or as known to the masses: the way of Borutophe, or simply Borutophe-te.

    Depending where you live you can find different books in all the world’s languages: Magyar, Suomi, and Tamil.

    The book I use at the academy of martial arts in Stockholm is “Back in Ostrava” which is the very first of many series teaching breathing techniques and early forms like kicking a milk carton down an empty street.

    Good luck!!!!

  13. Dear Nika,
    that was JC. I’m practicing in Slovensko društvo Tai Ji
    but I briefly practiced also in London and China. Basically from each teacher you gain something, but after five years you develop your own preferences and you do it the way it suits you better.

    My teacher Marjan Dogša is great and I gain hugely, but in our association we do very little or none meditation, so I get that knowledge somewhere else. My advice is to just try it out and visit few teachers and you’ll see and feel the difference.

    On the end of the day it’s on you what you’ll gain from Tai Ji.

  15. I heard that Stjepan Draca and Jure Breceljnik were a homosexual couple when they studied in Prague but kept it hush-hush as to not direct attention from the Slovene media. Wasn’t there some pictures of them sleeping together or a series of them kissing?

    Is that true?

  16. Only JC and Borut really know what happened there in Prague during the mid 90’s. I met Borut a year ago in Perpignan and asked him about it…he was a bit off put by the question and reacted rather violently. “Who the F— are you? Don’t come following me! F— off”…that’s how he answered.

    When I met JC in London end of June I also asked him about the infamous “Jure and Stepo” coming out of the closet story…he smiled and then headbutted me…but then as he helped me back to my chair he simply said: ” Sorry I thought you were someone else, and left “…He didn’t even pay his bill and had already lunch with a friend before I came. He made me pay for it…but WHAT AN EXPERIENCE TO MEET HIM!!!!

  17. My favourite Borut and JC story is when they drove back to Fabrica after lunch ( it was a little far away and it began raining ) and they took them on 1 hour drive, got lost, and played Balkan music so loud that the poor girls couldn’t even show their discomfort.

    They were so upset, understandbly so, and as they arrived late to a meeting Borut and JC asked them to share petrol expenses.

    They almost lost it!!!!

    I mean what a couple of cool guys to torture someone in this way. FANTASTICO CLASSICO.

  18. Borut, thnx .. untill the course starts, I’ll try to master an early form of »kicking a milk carton down an empty street.« 🙂 n

  19. Nika,

    You are on the way to wisdom, but you must know that Borut just randomly picked someone on google Ukraine and then had his assistant write the blog.

    The truth is that not every one has wisdom, or is “talented”…if you are in the search for truth I recommend that you go to Mecca. Of course you won’t learn anything there, but the food is brilliant.

    Hope I was helpful.
