Zajdi, zajdi jasno sonce
zajdi pomrači se
i ti jasna le mesečino
begaj udavi se.

Crni goro, crni sestro
dvajca da crnejme
ti za tvojte lisja le goro
jas za mojta mladost.

Tvojte lisja goro sestro
pak ḱe ti se vratat
mojta mladost goro le sestro
nema da se vrati

Set, set bright sun,
Set, blackout
And you clear moonlight too
Run away, drown yourself

Sad forest, sad sister,
Let’s be sad together
You- for your leaves, forest
Me- for my youth.

Your leaves, forest – my sister,
Are going to get back to you
My youth, forest – my sister,
It’s not coming back.

Solange man streit um zu gewinnen
hat man noch immer nicht gelernt zu leben

As long you battle to win
you still didn’t learn to live

Daywasting in Germany

encounter often the question:
‘how come, that fluid tongue?’
Ad nauseam I fulfill the request:
‘born in border town’.
+ if in ok frame of mind
followed by the story:
Daily Germans crossed
primarily for purchasing cigarettes
presumed cheaper passing the line.
Contrary for us, teenagers
cigarette vending provoked reverse
fl 2.50 coin equaled dm 5,–
the machine agreed;
supplying cigarettes + change.
The neighbors would have been better of purchasing fl 2,50 coins.

‘Artists will never change the world. Soldiers and scientists, they change the world. After, artists are instructed to create a monument. They are individualists with wrong ideas like anyone else. Whatever change of system, they will be the first thrown in prison.’

Came across this line somewhere. Somehow there is a certain truth in it. We all just dream on waves of entertaining art-creations like paintings, movies and especially music. The thought of a better world makes us feel good. But ‘Blowin In The Wind’ and ‘Imagine’ changed shite, nor any similar song did or ever will.
Alexander (the Great) or Che changed the world in some territories. They were soldiers, although Che did base his attempt on an earlier published philosophy. The invention of f.e. electricity and car did drastically change our way of live.
And yes, that inspired many artists.
Meanwhile, humanity seem to float on only wrong ideas. As long thinking exists, every idea was declared ‘wrong’ after some time. Call that ‘life’.
And yes, after every system change, everyone who didn’t fit the average was considered a danger to the new (soon wrong) idea and was eliminated. Most artists belong to this group.
But nowadays that kind of threat is vanished. Everybody, including artists, joint the boring middle class, fulfilling average needs. A new revolution? Meanwhile the old revolution ended up in our museums:

Tuned up the site a bit last days. Fixed some mistakes, updated few pages. Everything functions again like it should. Left the pages with old posts as they are. Too big of a job fixing all mistakes, broken links,…. on these pages. The guestbook stays closed for new entries. Didn’t change the theme either. I like this sober basic presentation.
