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.
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:
not part of your possessions
neither am I
Some find simple solutions
what a mistake….
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.
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
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,
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.
pop-music is the final stage of a development….
History is always documented as fiction
sufficient words wasted
senseless adding more
Man in tobacco shop
reads ‘smoking kills’ on many packagings
His thought: ‘might give that a try’
“How many until it works” he asks the counterman
“No idea, it varies per person” is the reply.
“I’ll take 50 of these packages”
One week later
The man returns in the tobacco shop
and throws 50 empty cigarette boxes on the counter.
“It didn’t work. I like to have my money back”
To be invisible
Will be my claim to fame
A man with no name
That way, I won’t have to feel the pain
Just a plain old human being
Today, don’t mean a thing
In a world that’s so mean
A world that seems not for me
So privately, I’ll be invisible
That way, I won’t have to explain a thing, if you know what I mean
I won’t even have to be here, on the scene
It’s so ridiculous
But the strife and the bliss
Will go right on through, right on through me
To have missed
All the things that hurt your soul
No one would ever know
They’d never know
Life so preciously
Just don’t seem to be
As free as they claim freedom to be
Things are going fast
To have found that all is in the past
To have to take what you can get
Sure can make a heart upset
So I’ll be invisible
From the ‘Worst-Album-Covers’ list:
My Opinion: One of the best (and funniest) album covers ever…….
Despite Genesis P Orridge illness, s/he is fully confident visiting Europe with Psychic TV/PTV3 to perform the 2 concerts in London and Berlin. These concerts will probably be the last European PTV3 performances for many years with the hope Genesis will fully recover from her leukemia.
Observing humanity, most seem to need a ‘smart’ device
Wer nicht dasselbe erfahren hat wie ich,
soll mich kein Rat geben
Who has not experienced the same as me,
should give me no advice
