Inspired by Lawrence Lessig’s total incompetence as a (future) freedom fighter, XLterrestrials show 2nite will demonstrate that Youtube Remix Crapola Culture Uberalles is a good example of ideas of liberation hatched from the digital 90s bubblegumdom…

ok, we’ll have to admit, he just opened our eyes bigtime ( perhaps unintentionally, haha ), but anyway one should always be aware of the necessity to take the piss out of a techie+lawyer perspective now and then… and we do wish him well on his battle to rewrite the dismal structures of congress.

But standby for a psychomedia analysis of Lessig’s new Remix book and his presentation and discussion last nite at Sophiensaal put together by the Henrich Boll Foundation. He triggered many many off-the-grid thoughts with his powerpointillisms of Thomas Jefferson’s dead Moose, Infernal Machines, and Bush and Blair singing Lionel Richie… cause, well we’d much rather hear the remix where theys a singin ” Workin on The Chain Gang! … and we’d much rather stand in the forest and see a 10ft elk in the wild as opposed to hearing of one taxidermied, referenced, memed and stuffed in a lawyer’s bag o tricks like a digital re/write Macguffin. stay tuned, stay tuned…
