The expression is 'pet peeve'.
Here are some definitions:

The Free Dictionary:

Wikipedia:

But there's more! (More?!)

ALERT FOR METELKOVA

All of you that have been guests of Stripburger know our home base Metelkova very well. It is under threat by the goverment officials. Metelkova is trying to raise support and stop the destruction also with e-mails to some of the heads of state apparatus. Here's the whole story in english and an appeal to express support.
This Wednesday, June 14th 2006, at 6 in the morning the government Inspectorate for the Environment and Spatial Planning brought an excavating machine to the Autonomous Cultural Zone Metelkova mesto, Ljubljana, to tear down one of the buildings of the converted ancient army barracks which they consider to have been erected illegally. The cultural workers and supporters of Metelkova prevented the action. This attempt to destroy one of the liveliest cultural and intellectual locations in Ljubljana was the third one in the past few months. Various inspections have recently intensified their interventions during cultural events at Metelkova.
The government of Slovenia is acting in accordance with a recently passed law on catering industries. Under the cover of its strict provisions regulating commercial activities, which cannot be fulfilled by the non-profit associations and NGOs of Metelkova, the executive might as well put an end to the largest agglomeration of alternative cultures in the country.
Metelkova provides 40% of the non-commercial music events in the city. Its attendance can favourably be compared with that of the established Ljubljana Festival. It is the second largest provider of cultural events in Ljubljana. Metelkova is the only location in the city, and one of the few in the country, where youth cultures and alternative cultures are systematically produced and presented to a large and active audience. It is also a forum of impressive intellectual irradiation. During each academic year, it hosts the
Workers' Punk University
where the most urgent dilemmas of the contemporary world are discussed by competent international speakers. Metelkova recently hosted the annual meeting of Trans Europe Halles. During the 13 years of its existence, projects at the Autonomous Cultural Zone Metelkova mesto have been supported by the Ministry of Culture and by the City of Ljubljana, as well as by many international sponsors.
Producers from Metelkova have been participating in Documenta, Manifesta, Sao Paolo Biennial, Venice Biennale, Wiener Festwochen… Many international festivals held in Ljubljana hold part of their activities at Metelkova: The City of Women, The Other Music, Jazz Festival Ljubljana, Trnfest… Metelkova has been presented as an outstanding phenomenon by international media: ARD, Arte, BBC, Belarus' State TV, Die Zeit, Falter, Feral Tribune, Los Angeles Times, ORF, Russian State TV, Seattle Times, ZDF…
Metelkova is a squat initiated in 1993, when a group of alternative producers and activists occupied the ancient barracks of the army headquarters near the centre of Ljubljana in order to prevent its illegal destruction, which was launched by still unknown agents presumably led by speculative real-estate interest. Although it has never succeeded in achieving a proper legal status, the location was registered as national cultural heritage in 2005.
ACZ Metelkova mesto is under attack. Its people are ready to defend it. They need support. Please circulate this information.
If you want to express your support, please write to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia (
Janez.Jansa@gov.si) and to the Minister of Culture (vasko.simoniti@gov.si). Please, send a copy of your letter to info@metelkova.org

Jezni uradniki napadajo Metelkovo

Raznorazne republiške inšpekcije ustrahujejo Metelkovo. V soboto 3. junija so mračne sile republiških inšpektoratov oborožene z bagerji poskušale porušiti Malo šolo. Po posredovanju Metelkovcev jim to ni uspelo, čeprav obljubljajo skorajšnjo vrnitev (tokrat okrepljeni s policijsko enoto) in maščevanje. Upajmo, da so imele včerajšnje demonstracije pred mestno hišo (glej spodaj) in pohod po stari Ljubljani kaj učinka. Več o dogodkih na sajtu Metelkove. Vsi podporniki in podpornice AKC Metelkova Mesto pa so pozvani, da prispevajo svoj podpis v znak podpore v klubu Gromka, Mali šoli ali klubu Jalla Jalla. METELKOVE NE DAMO!

Amazing Adventures...!!!

Prave pustolovscine so za vogalom; zakaj bi jih iskali v... no, recimo, v stripih?
Real adventure lurks just around the corner; why search for it in, let's say, comics?

Z manjšo zamudo se tudi jaz pridružujem našmu blogu. Za začetek pošiljam tole risbico. Mal spominja na scratchboard sam to ni-je v bistvu računalniška grafika. Mal sem se zafrkaval in preizkušal zmožnosti risanja z grafično tablico-mogoče bo pa iz tega še kaj nastalo...
