picture: fancypunk & dr0fn0thing holding the 2012 world congress of the shituationist tendency
we never aimed at being exciting, so excuse us for just carrying on with our boring little art and music blog. yours, the shituationist tendency.
two or three things. as the freakin nazi party in greece is really active, profiting from the crisis situation there, the shituationist network really recommends all antifascists worldwide to keep an eye on what is going on there, you can do this in the side project of one of us, the Dawn of the Greeks blog.
also we continue some of the debates that we have started to focus on in the summer of 2011, the evaluation of transformations of our scenes during the crisis. see for example this text: Between crisis and creative escapism. The techno and electronic scene in Athens. Also other topics of this blog were given little update notes this year: something about the screen generation, and a bit about this idea that we have to take Adorno’s philosophy of music and apply it to rave sounds. although we extended our network a bit, we still had some nice features from our long-time contacts Ion, who was present with some little articles and interviews and Brockdorff Klang Labor, featuring the new BKL sounds (remember, you heard it first here… now their new album is out.)
also note that we have published our 30th podcast, if you are interested in contributing to this series, please don’t be afraid to contact us. also for other interviews/features/free downloads and all that. note that while we still have our regular features and sets, our soundcloud account has also become a really active tool, as we probably won’t find the time to feature all the stuff that we bookmarks there on our blog, be sure to check it for the more freaky stuff and loads of sets.
an old shituationist once said:
i see no one here
who hasn’t broken the pain
of being an endless free person
i only see fear lasting
a life just killing time
and then one day it’s done
day for day just going on
always the brave mien played
to the stupid pantomimes we have
always feeling (a) bad while
gagging on a gag
the scene where we struggle
the strangle never ceases
four walls pressing in and the rest
always look with your fingers
and only feel with your eyes
breathless urge, agonize for some thing
impossible to get hold of
art – but that’s just pictures
they do not speak to us
and we not to each other
and no one to one self
outside is just like inside
cause there is no outside left
let’s walk a bit together
that remains but nothing does
to love each other in catastrophy
on a long forsaken path
let’s walk a bit together
all remains but nothing does.
so, that’s it for the 2012 shituationist shitty birthday speech, see you again next year, and tonight in the fogs of saturday’s raves, think of our common goal, the shituationist revolution, a bit and not only get lost serving the hedonistic propaganda 😉
One thought on “4 years of shituationism. the annual birthday speech by dr0fn0thing.”
First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had
a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to
writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!
