Brazilianisms VIDEO 012: Pampulha Church
<p>Transcript:</p> <p></p> <p>Recently, one Brazil's most renowned architects, Oscar Niemeyer, passed away. He died on December 5th, 2012, ten days before what would have been his 105th birthday. I learned of him on my very first visit to Brazil in the 80s when he was already an old man, and every time I returned to Brazil and saw him turn up in the news, I was always astonished to learn he was still alive. Now I'm just as surprised to hear of his passing. </p> <p></p> <p>He is most known as the great architect who designed the governmental buildings in Brazil's capital city of Brasilia under President Juscelino Kubitschek in the 1950s, as well helping to design the United Nations building in New York City. But back in the 40s when Kubitschek was the mayor of Belo Horizonte, Niemeyer was already known to him and was contracted by him to design buildings for a newly-created man-made lake in the Pampulha district of Belo Horizonte, the city where I now live. One of those buildings is the Church of Saint Francis of Assisi, which is today considered one of the most well-known icons of Belo Horizonte, as well as the most popular postcard image for visitors to that city.</p> <p></p> <p>But it wasn't always that way. Although construction of the church was completed in 1943, its unique architectural style was so reviled by the Catholic Church that it refused to consecrate it. In response to Niemeyer's remark that he had been was inspired by French Poet Paul Claudel's statement that "A church is God's hangar on earth," the archbishop of Belo Horizonte said it was more like the devil's bomb shelter and unfit for religious purposes. The church does, in fact, bear a striking resemblance to a miniature aircraft hangar, being the first architectural structure, besides actual hangars, to use a parabolic arch as a roof, making it radically different in appearance from traditional Catholic churches. The fact that Niemeyer was a professed atheist did nothing to help the situation.</p> <p></p> <p>The Church also took issue with some of the artwork, done by Brazilian Painter Cândido Portinari that was incorporated on both the exterior and interior of the building, such as this image, showing St. Francis with a dog. It is a reference to a story about him using the power of God to pacify a wolf that had been attacking villagers and their livestock. In gratitude, the people of the village agreed to feed and care for it, and it lived peacefully with them for many years thereafter until its death. It was a domesticated wolf, so the artist chose to portray it as a dog. Other images portrayal additional legends of St. Francis interacting with animals. Here he can be seen preaching to the birds. And here he is giving a sermon to the birds and the fish (although he appears to be stepping on one of the fish.)</p> <p></p> <p>The dog can be seen again on a large mural within the main part of the building. Smaller paintings signifying the Stations of the Cross hang at eye level on the cherry wood walls at either side. To the left is one of two confessionals. These were never used, since it was discovered after construction was completed that they do an excellent job of projecting the voice of a speaker within out to the entire room, making private conversations rather difficult.</p> <p></p> <p>Despite resistance by Church officials and an attempt by a later mayor to have the building demolished, it remained. As Niemeyer achieved greater fame for his architectural work in Brasilia, as well as the United Nations building in New York City, and as Portinari achieved ever greater recognition, eventually becoming one of the most renowned Brazilian painters, the artistic merit of the Church of Saint Francis became much harder to deny. In 1959, 16 years after construction, it was finally consecrated by Auxiliary Archbishop João Rezende Costa, who said, "Now we can feel the wonderful art created here in homage to the Creator."</p> <p></p> <p>Music:</p> <p>--Meditation Impromptu 03 by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) </p> <p>       Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0</p> <p>       http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/</p> <p></p> <p>Photos:</p> <p>--UN Complex: licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic license from www.WorldIslandInfo.com</p> <p></p> <p>--Lake Panorama: licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license from Wikipedia user Andreborgeslopes</p>

Brazilianisms 075: Darcy Ribeiro
<p><span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Verdana, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Back in the 90s when I was a college student, Brazilian scholar Darcy Ribeiro visited Indiana University to give a lecture on his theories of race and culture in Latin America. (We discussed his ideas at length back in episode 15.) I attended his talk and recorded it with my trusty audio cassette recorder. The last time I was in the US, I managed to track down the tape and now offer it here as a digital download. This was recorded on September 19, 1992.</span></p>

<p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Verdana, sans-serif; font-size: small;">I'm so late getting this posted that it's a bit out of date. I'm no longer preparing for a trip to the US but have actually been there and back. Still, the feedback is relevant.</span></p>

Brazilianisms Mini-Episode 002: Milton Confuses Kinsey
<p>Milton tries to explain something about the curriculum where we teach English, and I become hopelessly confused. Don't expect to learn anything about Brazil in this slightly humorous mini episode.</p>

<p>We talk about our experiences teaching and learning foreign languages.</p>

Brazilianisms 055: Kidney Stones
<p>This episode is mainly about my recent experiences being diagnosed and treated for kidney stones in Brazil. We also revisit the topic of <a href="http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/41/tracker.shtml">green lasers being shot at airplanes</a>, Milton tells about being nearly killed in a bicycle accident, and I talk about falling on some wet stairs.</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Brazilianisms 054: Background Noise Bonanza
<p>I apologize for the ridiculous amount of background noises heard throughout the episode. Some crazy neighbor decided to hammer and use power tools as we were recording. Since opportunities to record with Milton are few and far between, I decided to go on with the show. In this episode, we compare healthcare in the US and Brazil. Then we discuss the Pirahã indians and their unique cultural and linguistic traits.</p>

Brazilianisms 052: Music!
<p>Here at last is our long-awaited Brazilian music episode. I am by no means an expert on Brazilian music, but I hope that this sampling gives a general idea of the range of musical styles produced in Brazil. I would especially like to thank Israeli podcaster <a href="http://www.guydavid.com/">Guy David</a> for making this episode possible. In Israel it is legal to include copyrighted music in a podcast with the only requirement being that it is properly sited. With that in mind, I asked Guy if he would mind hosting this episode in his Israeli podcasting account. He graciously agreed, and thanks to him, I am now able to share all these songs with my listeners. The links below take you to iTunes, where you download each individual song (assuming you are using the US iTunes store). If you want to see all the songs together, you can go to my <a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/imix/brazilian-music/id420213664">iTunes playlist</a>. Enjoy!</p>

Brazilianisms 051: A Bit of Everything
<p>In this episode we're a bit more organized and actually manage to talk about Brazil. Milton insists on opening the window, so there's a lot of street noise in the background.</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Brazilianisms 050: Back in Brazil
<p>As happened last year, the first episode after I got back to Brazil is rather chaotic. We jump around a lot from topic to topic and somehow end up discussing the US more than Brazil. Also there's a lot of background noise from crinkly plastic bags. On the plus side, we're finally using a high-quality microphone.</p>

Brazilianisms 043: Just a Little More Feedback
<p>We took such a long hiatus that we forgot that our previous episode was already dedicated to feedback, so you get two feedback shows in a row!</p> <p>I know this wasn't one of our stronger episodes, but don't give up on us quite yet. Next week's show has a special surprise guest.</p>

Brazilianisms Mini-Episode 001: Milton Eats Cheese
We're finally back. This is just a short mini-episode to get things started. The sound is very bad. Normally I'd just throw out the audio, but this is pretty short and is not something that could ever be recreated in a later episode. Future full-length episodes won't have stellar audio, but they'll definitely be better than this.
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Brazilianisms 032: Porcaria
Finally we come out with a new episode! This was recorded back in December when I was still hoarse from my cold, so please excuse the rawness of my voice. Also, there's a break in the audio at the very beginning, but after that it's smooth sailing soundwise.<br/><br/>In this episode we basically talk about all the crap in Brazil and some of my frustrations living here. I sincerely hope this episode doesn't offend, as that was not our intent.

Brazilianisms 018: Electric Feedback Boogaloo
We got a lot of feedback from our series on race. Strangely, most of it was about electricity.

Brazilianisms 017: Race (part 3)
Bad sound quality strikes again. I think I've found the problem, so it won't happen again. (Of course, that's what I said last time.) In this episode, Milton and I talk a bit about the indigenous population of Brazil.

Brazilianisms 016: Race (part 2)
In the second part of our three-part look at race in Brazil, Milton and I  continue our discussion on  how blackness is regarded in Brazil and how it came to be that way.
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Brazilianisms 015: Race (part 1)
This is the first of what will be at least a three-part series on race in Brazil. Unfortunately, gremlins once again attacked our sound equipment, and there seems to be no way to filter out the very annoying staticky crackle. Ordinarily, I wouldn't even publish this, but it's one of our best episodes. The next two race episodes (already recorded and without the crackle) really need the groundwork laid down in this one, so please give it a listen and accept my apologies. I'm taking measures to insure that nothing like this happens again.
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Brazilianisms 014: Milton Gets Better
I Skype Milton to talk about his recovery and tell a couple of amusing anecdotes about Simone's sister. This is clearly not our best episode, and if your main reason for listening is to learn about Brazil, you'll probably want to skip this one. Next week we get back into the swing of things with the first installment of a three-part (at least) series about race in Brazil.

Brazilianisms VIDEO 004: What's in the Fridge?
Milton couldn't make it this week, so we don't have a regular episode. (We definitely will next week.) In the meantime, here's a short video showing the contents of my refrigerator.

Brazilianisms 013: The Episode Where we Jump the Shark
In our unlucky 13th episode Milton and I go so far off-topic, that it's not even funny. (Well, actually I suppose it is.) To make matters worse, serious back pain has delayed me getting this out, and I didn't have a chance to record an intro, resulting in the episode beginning and ending rather abruptly. Next episode will be better. I promise.<br/><br/>http://www.brazilianismspodcast.com<br type="_moz"/>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Brazilianisms 012: Milton Wants to Climb a Tree
The only thing between this episode and number 11 was a pizza. Ustream stopped working, so there's no video, but we managed to clear out a lot of feedback before getting distracted by old memories. There's still a bit remaining, though, and we'll finish it up next week on episode 13. Then we can get back to actual show topics.<br/><br/>http://www.brazilianismspodcast.com<br type="_moz"/>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Brazilianisms VIDEO 003: Highlights from our First Live Show
Episode 11 was our first attempt at a live show. It is a collection of some of the more amusing visual moments. Since this is recorded from what we streamed overseas to Ustream, the quality is not ideal.<br/><br/>http://www.brazilianismspodcast.com<br type="_moz"/>

Brazilianisms VIDEO 002: Easter Egg
In Brazil there are no Easter baskets or dyed chicken eggs. Instead, people receive large hollow chocolate eggs with candy inside. This video features the egg I got for Simone.<br/><br/>http://www.brazilianismspodcast.com<br type="_moz"/>
Watch: vodcast - video/quicktime

Brazilianisms 011: Live Feedback
Milton and I had a lot of fun with this episode, mostly because we did a live video feed on Ustream while we were recording. Unfortunately, all we got were lurkers, so our hopes for viewer feedback on listener feedback went unfulfilled. Still, I think this was one of our better shows, and I may someday edit together a few video clips to make a short movie.<br/><br/>http://www.brazilianismspodcast.com<br type="_moz"/>
