Warning... One! Oh! Eight!

The new album of 108 is out on the streets killing people!

And they put some of my photos from their show in Stockholm on their website. I suppose things like this can really make a dead heart making a new beat.

Style Competition

Is it me who looks like Jarvis Cocker, or is he trying to steal my style?

look and decide yourself!

Prophets of Mass Media Did It Again

So many angry, crazy Muslim radicals in the world... Scary, right? Or is just one rage boy enough to scare you?

Christopher Hitchens thinks we should be more laid back and consider that a few extremists do not represent the whole Muslim population: We may have to put up with the Rage Boys of the world, but we ought not to do their work for them.

Inshallah, indeed!

History Today, History Tomorrow - Still This Side Of Heaven

The (International) Noise Conspiracy gigs this summer:

Jun 10 - Lisboa (Portugal) @ Alive 07 Festival
Jun 29 - Bilbao (Spain) @ Bilbao BBK Live Festival
Aug 4 - Lustenau (Austria) © Szene Festival
Aug 24 - L├╝dinghausen (Germany) @ Area 4 Festival
Sep 20/21 - The Baltic Sea (Sweden/Finland) @ Rock'n'Roll-b├ąten
Sep 28/29 - Hamburg (Germany) @ Reeperbahn Festival

Damn it, I have to wait until September! If I'm still in Sweden, which is fairly unpredictable in these times of change... But if you happen to be somewhere near where this band plays, go and see them, it's worth it, all 1000%. Sweaty boys of revolution rock'n'roll will shower on you experience of political entertainment (or entertaining politics) at its best. And don't forget your dancing shoes, for God's sake!

Posthuman Madness (In The Name Of Justice)

All animals are equal.
(Peter Singer)

Alice: But I don't want to go among mad people.
The Cat: Oh, you can't help that. We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.
Alice: How do you know I'm mad?
The Cat: You must be. Or you wouldn't have come here.
Alice: And how do you know that you're mad?
The Cat: To begin with, a dog's not mad. You grant that?
Alice: I suppose so.
The Cat: Well, then, you see, a dog growls when it's angry, and wags its tail when it's pleased. Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I'm mad.
(”Alice in Wonderland”, Lewis Carroll)

.. deconstruction is mad about this kind of justice. Mad about this desire for justice.
(Jacques Derrida)
