...dogs don´t bite [29 Dec 2005|12:24pm]

When I carefully consider the curious habits of dogs
I am compelled to conclude
That man is the superior animal.

When I consider the curious habits of man
I confess, my friend, I am puzzled.

Tell me, if I caught you one day
and kissed the sole of your foot,
wouldn't you limp a little then,
afraid to crush my kiss?...

...court [13 Oct 2005|10:12pm]
trad. spanish fan language:

pulling through hand -I hate you.
holding in right hand -follow me.
holding in left hand -I´m seeking for aquaintance.
holding to right ear -leave me alone.
gliding over forehead -you have changed.
letting flutter with left hand -we are obeserved.
carrying in right hand -you are venturous.
letting flutter with right hand -I love someone else.
gliding over cheek -I love you.
presenting in closed state -do you love me?
gliding over eyes -please forgive me.
touching outer edge with finger -I want to talk to you.
letting rest on right cheek -yes.
letting rest on left cheek -no.
opening and closing -you are gruesome.
letting hang down -we remain friends.
fan slowly -I am married.
fan quickly -I am engaged.
open widely -wait for me.
on lips -kiss me.
holding in hand in open state -come, converse with me.
holding behing head -do not forget me.
holding with splayed little finger -good bye.

emerged from the 17th century (spanish aristocracy) ...passed over mainly to england and france (fan academies founded in paris and london).
all the tendences using this form of communication finally died out by the second world war (at the latest).

somewhat of a reality-historical "capriccio",, isnt it? :)
.......the only reality about mankind is noting but naked lunacy

...1870 [10 Aug 2005|08:20pm]
I went off with my hands in my torn coat pockets; my overcoat too was becoming ideal; I travelled beneath the sky, Muse! and I was your vassal; oh dear me! what marvellous loves I dreamed of!

My only pair of breeches had a big hole in them. — Stragazing Tom Thumb, I sowed my rhymes along the way. My tavern was at the Sign of the Great Bear. — My stars in the sky rustled softly.

And I listened to them, sitting on the road-sides on those pleasant September evenings while I felt drops of dew on my forehead like vigorous wine;

and while, rhyming among the fantastical shadows, I plucked the strings of a lyre the elastics of my tattered boots, one foot close to my heart!

»my summer of love«

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
mona drawing tamsin´s face

Mona (NATALIE PRESS) has just got hold of a brilliant moped that only cost a tenner. No engine but still dirt-cheap. She lives with her brother, Phil, (PADDY CONSIDINE) who used to run a pub before he found God and poured away all the booze. Tamsin (EMILY BLUNT) is rich, spoilt and trying to live a life of seductive decadence.

They meet on the moors, above their quiet Yorkshire village and begin an intense, unlikely friendship. Tamsin is tragic and fantastical, Mona, rough and witty. Tamsin is charmed and Mona is hooked.

Tamsin and Mona want to escape their lives but Phil wants to save them and save everybody else. Mona wants the old, dangerous, Phil back; the brother that she loved. Tamsin wants to see what it takes to break him.

Jheronymus van Aeken´s resp. Jheronymus Bosch´s popular and numerously paraphrased triptych with the melodious name

Prof Dr. Arthur Rosenauer had lately mentioned a certain art historian´s point of view in the course of his lecture concerning the inorthodoxical theme in the middle of the three-piece "altar" (as long as you can call it one), this standpoint
of an individual called Belting (I think this guy´s german) seriously claims that the depicted theme originates from a gash in the bible, resp. it illustrates the situation that would have been present incase that the fall of mankind through eve wouldn´t have occured. this thought obviously seperates him form most art historians common opinion which,of course, explains the legitimation of the theme presented in this remarkably grandious dominance in both, position and dimension

...dening, the mytology of sex, 1996 [23 Dec 2004|01:20pm]
this is a frangment out of a great book my ount gave me -it´s one of the very few books i read in english tongue (too bad i´m so fucking lazy)
...however,-it´s kind of a mixture of a socioanthropological and ethnoglogical book and i found it very very great even though the autor (who´s female by the way [...which gives some objectivity to this thing hehe]) dedicates at least half of the book or more to the
western world and occupies with "our" gender-cultural theme in a more or less chronological manner.

so here is the fragmet about mesopotamian ishtar-cult
under dening´s chapter »sex in ancient civilisations« ..- enyoy!..

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

futurism and the fascist futuristic movement...

as i´m a big admirer of fururist sculpture, i´m in an even more confused mood now!
..the celebration of war and (in later consequence) italian fascism in marinetti´s manifestos isn´t directly a secret. -i´d even claim it has never been one.

well, i read through it and hit on point nine, which contains the following perversity (among a hand ful of trivial thin-lipped philosophies preaching things like "we will fight every opportunistic or utilitarian cowardice"):

[...] 9. »We will glorify war—the world’s only hygiene—militarism, patriotism, the destructive gesture of freedom-bringers, beautiful ideas worth dying for, and scorn for woman.«

an artistic movement (of such wonderful forefathers like french analytiacal cubists) was unscrupulous enough to bring such_a_blemish above their hotly coveted ""fatherland""
...shame on them. ;)
((i´d though recommend everyone interested to read through the manifestos and get amazed about what crap this guy writes in a wonderful spicy word choice)):

...ex-pression [01 Feb 2004|11:32pm]
one of the numerous classical indian dances, 'odissi', (which´s local-traditional origins are in orissia, eastern india) had kind of raised my attention since i was first confronted. {till now, exculsively on screens or in books...} well,,, i finally got my chance to see an entire performance in near future which i considered as a good reason for dedicatin' an entry on this page to the authenticity and beauty of this art; -don´t you think? - (howerver: can´t wait to see szirmay dancing!)

» [...] delicate torso movements in a rythmic and lyrical way blending harmoniously with the scintillating and lilting music of odissi gives a spell-bounding experience and a tranquiliting effect on the observer.«

» [...] the dance is inspired by the chiselled beauty of temple sculptures or the sculptures depict the act of dancing is a conundrum'.«

9 moods or/and sentiments in Indian classical dance, called "rasas". they are: srngara (love), hasya (laughter), karuna (sadness), raudra (anger), vira (pride), bhayanaka (fear), bibhatsa (disgust), adbhuta (wonder), and shanta (peace). Rasa is two-fold, experienced by the dancer and the audience.

Sex Gang Children live on the first day of November 2002 ••• Andi SG´s Neuidentifikation mit den guten alten 'Sex Gang Children' hat es uns über die Jahrhundertwende hinaus ermöglicht, dass die Londoner wieder vereint auf einem Walaskialf-Event zu sehen waren. Hier meine persönliche Schilderung zur Wiener Performance in der Planet Music Hall, Vienna:
In der (für diesen Aufwand) nur sehr spärlich besuchten Planet Music Hall, stand die Luft am 2. Tag des Dark Nation Day Festivals enttäuschend dünn... Womit ich sagen will, dass die Stimmung nicht gerade fiebrig, sowie die Zahl der Gäste nicht gerade befriedigend war. Nun, dennoch waren die Paar, die sich 'dorthin verirrt hatten' sehr beschäftigt, und zwar grossteils mit gemütlichem Dasitzen und Tratschen. Ziemlich genau um 22:40 stand die offiziell siebte, und für mich erste Band des abends on stage ;
Closterkeller. Sie legten eine (in meinen Augen) pathetische, jedoch ebenso pseudohafte Performance hin, auf die man gut hätte verzichten können. Um es zu elaborieren : pathetisch doomige Klänge im Zusammenspiel mit aufbrausenden Lyrics, die eine in bordeauxrotem langen Kleid gehüllte Dunkelhaarige besang : Die alte Leier der letzten zehn Jahre eben. Die Band schien im Allgemeinen nicht schlecht bei einem Grossteil des Publikums anzukommen, was man ihnen durchaus gönnen sollte. Schliesslich waren es (zumindest rein objektiv betrachtet) talentierte Musiker, und auch die Sängerin hatte eine .. naja ..relativ starke Stimme.

Puh... finally...Es begann sich allmählich alles vor der Bühne zu versammeln. 'Soweit' war es um Mitternacht, als der Hauptact des Abends angesagt war. Eine legendäre britische Pre-Goth, frühachtziger Formation, die für ihren noch punklastig angehauchten Sound bekannt ist ; Die Sex Gang Children gingen ab etwa 12:10 qualvollerweise langsam und Kopf für Kopf on stage. Die Gang war nach einer längeren Weile mit Andi Sex Gang komplett, und es wurde losgerockt. Optisch stellten die Männer mit Anzug die perfekte "gang in black" dar, wobei Andi mit einem für ihn typischen, äußerst exhaltierten Outfit mit etwa hauchig weißen Strümpfchen, puppenhaften Riemchensandalen und einem funkelnden Abzeichen auf der Brust, die Blicke auf sich zog. Er brachte den Charakter der Band mit gewohnt zynisch bösartigen Mimiken und Stimmerhebungen zum Ausdruck. Musiktechnisch hielten sich die "Jungs" augenscheinlich an eine Art Abwechslungsprinzip bei der oft Ballade auf rockig tanzbare Stücke folgte. Gothnostalgiker wurden mit prägenden Stücken wie "Sebastianne", "Times Of Our Lifes" oder dem exzentrischen "Draconian Dream" beglückt. Auch "Babarossa" und der Tietelsong des Albums "Medea", sowie das anschmiegsame "Arms Of Cicero" waren Teil der Show, welche unüberhörbar fiebrig vom Publikum angenommen wurden. Im Besonderen war hier der Gangmember zur Rechten Andi´s mit seiner elektro Violine gefordert, die wild durch die Sex Gang Songs heulte. Gekrönt wurde mit dem abschliessenden Zugabestück "Song And Legend", mit dem sich die Band endgültig um etwa dreiviertel Zwei verabschiedete. Sie hinterließ ein zufriedenes Publikum (wenn auch klein an der Zahl) ; Nicht zuletzt, weil Andi Sex Gang wärend der Show bemerkt hatte, dass wir "very sympathisch" seien ;) Man konnte sich also, glaube ich, mit der (bestimmt nicht so häufig vorkommenden) Sex Gang Children Show mehr als zufrieden geben, mit der Ausnahme von einem soundtechnischen Problem, bei der Andi´s Stimme kaum mehr hörbar war. Er hatte davon sichtlich Notiz genommen und war anfangs leicht verwirrt. Dennoch hieß es britischerweise : The show must go on! ... Allerdings war dies ein schwer verzeihlicher Verlust, da für die individuelle Sex Gang Soundatmosphäre Andi´s rahmensprängende Gesangsstimme wohl unverzichtbar ist.

Nachdem die Bühne von Legenden geräumt war, dauerte es keine fünf Minuten bevor die zuständigen DJs die Führung durch die Dämmerung übernahmen, und das - so glaubt mir - taten sie fast einwandfrei! Mir war zwar nicht entgangen, dass einige verdammt vielversprechende internationale DJs am Plan standen, jedoch hatte ich nicht mit einem solch klassisch gutem und trotzdem so "anderem" Programm gerechnet. Begonnen wurde mit altbewährtem Cure, Siouxie und Joy Division, und ging dann über NDW- und Post Punk-Klängen zu einem Ausflug ganz im Zeichen des Batcave über. Ein paar hypnotische, teils roh elektronische, batcavehafte Klänge brachten dann so einiges an netzumhüllter Haut zum tanzen. Neben psychedelischer Tanzmusik folgte zwischendurch auch mal der eine oder andere Klassiker der Sisters. Etwa nach 'Dieche' von Sex Gang und einem darauffolgenden Cinema Strange Stück war es dann soviel ich weiss Deadline. Alles in Allem war´s -will ich meinen- vom 12 Uhr Main-Act weg, einschliesslich des herrlichen DJ-Programms, ein gut verbrachter "Morgen", selbst wenn (oder ..gerade weil!) man ihn mit nur ""einer Hand voll"", grossteils deutscher, italienischer, kroatischer und britischer Mitgenießer verbracht hatte!

[ mood | rejuvenated ]

Es war nicht in mir. Es ging aus und ein.
Da wollt ich es halten. Da hielt es der Wein.
(Ich weiß nicht mehr, was es war.)
Dann hielt er mir jenes und hielt mir dies,
bis ich mich ganz auf ihn verließ.
Ich Narr.
Jetzt bin ich in seinem Spiel, und er streut
mich verächtlich herum und verliert mich noch heut
an diese Vieh, an den Tod.
Wenn der mich, schmutzige Karte, gewinnt,
so kratzt er mit mir seinen grauen Grind
und wirft mich fort in den Kot.

"Das Lied des Trinkers"
von Rainer Maria Rilke

must be hungarian guy, ...
-his name is whistle-blowing it.
— anyway,,, he´s really really creative... he occupies with portraits he forms of cloth pieces. this way we are finally able to comprehend the soul-landscape of a sweatshirt, alb or pullover or even research the deep schizophrenia of those worn-out muscle-shirts.
anothermagazine.com just published his photogaphs in issue 5 and 6 this year. it´s worth taking a look at this work. i think they´re really funny (and ambivalent).

i´ve seen tamasaburo bando, :one of the most opalescent onnagata-performers talking about his feelings concerning the art of japanese theater and of japanese population´s lost relation to this art which allagedly utterly knows the appearance of a kabuki actor but tho would not be able to identify him as "kabuki" performer. anyway,, this guy´s success — so it´s been said— had been predicted long before it came up by numerous masters in contemporary kabuki scene. this individual really really fascinated me ,,,,for everyone who is interested in kabuki or noh or any japanese theatralics should go here (·)
a lot of the plays he was involved in are published on dvd and vhs, you can get them as japanese imports (--unsless you live in tokyo or kyoto anyway)

{{for those who didn´t get in touch with this so far}}::: kabuki is a folkloral form of japanese theatre that has been existing since late 17th and finally blossomed out in the 18th century. it is the pendant to the arsitocratic Noh-thaeatre, which was a minimalistic and concervative mask-theatre. kabuki arose from the ruins of the japanese noble-period (that´s when samuraii ..you know) and was kind of a rebellion against it´s rigidness. as one of the so called "onnagata"(=idealized female role) -actresses involved herself into prostitution at the cost of kabuki, the theatre had been strictly reformed and replaced the female players by (first) adolescent males and (then) by adult males. this tradition lives on. -no women on kabuki stages.

...news from iggy [02 Oct 2003|10:57pm]
a short review of his new work with the stooges and peaches () etc.:

:::IGGY POP:::
Wild Love
Iggy & The Stooges

[...] This album explores the creative process that gave birth to nearly all the Stooges albums. Starting with a jam session, an oldie or two, or maybe a blues riff, the songs gradually took shape and were refined from there. Here we find the Stooges in rehearsal, messing around with songs by Bo Diddley, Bob Dylan, Cream, and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. We hear the beginnings of songs that never went any further, like "Old King Live Forever", "I Come From Nowhere" or "Wild Love", which had as much potential as any of their best material. And we have some very impromptu jams such as "Move Ass Baby" and a fascinating James Williamson solo performance.

Much of this material has never been heard before, in any form, as it's been buried in unmarked tapes in the Bomp vaults. In addition, we've included a few songs that have been out on unauthorized European releases, but the versions here are either completely different, or noticeably better in quality.

Track: Wild Love / Pin Point Eyes / Hey Baby / I Come From Nowhere / I'm So Glad / Ballad of Hollis Brown / Delta Blues Shuffle / Old King Live Forever / Look So Sweet / Mellow Down Easy / I'm a Man / Move Ass Baby / Til the End of the Night
