–:–:– XL Terrestrial / Transmigration newsletter o.1 –:–:–

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

Liebe arts and active organisms,
We are finally getting around to sending out an XL Terrestrials
newsletter. ( this will NOT be a frequent spam-tentacle invading yur
in-boxes, but apologies if this txt is one more unrelated eyesore in these
already over-cubicled days. Please drop us a line if you would like us to
cease all communications, with the subject [...]

hauptbanhof

Saturday, August 26th, 2006

Nearly full circle, I’ve landed back in Berlin, where the compass magnet gravitates to somewhere far east of Rosa Luxembourg Platz ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_Luxemburg ) where freezones are never really captured, and the streets do not spell out revolutionary ghosts as failed bloody squares jammed into round history-winner holes, but living breathing shifting psycho-geography and bodies [...]

13m3.sk – summer open academy

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006

Letne Dielne ( summer open academy ) in Bratislava has 4 more days to go. Already some high-level uploads+downloads- practical and theoretical- have occurred since I arrived on Sunday. Pure Data (a popular open source software for sound and visual that is derived from Max, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max/MSP ) presentations reveal a bottomless barrel full of [...]

the noodle stretch

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

Just hyperspaced from one end to the other, in the galaxy spectrum of activism, from Ecotopia – the annual eco-active euro gathering- to 13m3.sk – a Bratislava media lab in autonomous e-summer academy mode. From the rural retreat of Zajezova , the homebase of eco-conscious workshops amidst a tiny network/collective of sustainable farmers in the [...]

the tuzrakter gig

Tuesday, August 15th, 2006

the faux squat aesthetic, but nevertheless a few more happy heads to spin …
and even a maria peszek fan from poland wanting to trade some (polish) music links, stay tune.

on the green banks

Tuesday, August 15th, 2006

quik inserts from the drunken boat…
sailing up river towards ecotopia2006.org today…
into the mountains NETless for nearly a week…
my addicted exo-neurals are already shaking with a mix of fear and
elation…. escape? to what? what is outside the continuous nodule surf ?
… that relentless crashing sound on the beach of inland synapses.
How on earth will i [...]

sweeter buda-p poppies

Tuesday, August 15th, 2006

everywhere u turn the buda-p skyline beholds a flowering poppy pod from a place in time that must have been the opiate treffpunkt ( meeting place ) at the turn of the century, turn of the fortune’s wheel, turn of the kaleidescopes, turn to the page… where earth meets a brewing mauve and shimmering orange [...]

from momiano to bpest

Wednesday, August 9th, 2006

incredible tales in momiano/momjan, a tiny town in istria just near the border of slovenia. we teamed up with the liebidow crew, a pair of wicked performance tricksters with the touch of the clown sha-wo-man archetype. wild coincidences abound: they are also headed to budapest and they have a show that is in fact a [...]

i still cant find apostrophes on a croatian keyboard, but with that being the worst of our problems i think we could say the jammer guardians are looking after us…and so many inspring people along the trail are making our journey an easy coast down a [...]
