Sensory Deprivation countryside bioshock

Out in Cambridgeshire for the week and I awoke at 3am in a state of near panic because of the extreme silence- I strained my ears but could hear absolutely nothing... were it not for the gravity you'd think you were in outer space.

In Berlin there is always some *thump* or *tinktinktink* some far off cough, - a muffled Turkish car stereo drive by or a screaming drunken fight on the street below- but never ever nothing...

Doom Generation vs. doomed generation

Recently revisited the Greg Araki films of the mid-late 90s and I actually found them to be quite charming... When we were watching them in high school they were 'cool' and 'fucked up', disturbing, 'edgy', and actually quite artsy... The characters' existential suffering rang true with our teenage angst and the whole woe-as-me post-grunge fallout before pop went right back to being bubblegum. Before Britney. So, yea, what is the millennials' Doom Generation or nowhere? Do they have existential woes or are they too swept up in the infinite distractions provided by their phones and game consoles? When I am out and about I sometimes meet university kids from America at art shows and, to me, they have seen everything and nothing- experienced everything and nothing and they have an android-ish type quality about them... Perfect skin and physique but they seem... Hollow... Even vacuous. maybe I am Just getting old (or older) and mentally shaking my fist shouting out the window into the night at those dang kids and their internets and their dubstep music racket... Or maybe they are creepily superficial and know nothing of life... Either way I heard the fresh air 'alone together' interview with shelia Tuttle and it keeps haunting me... Haaauuuuuuuuunting.

Everything is sculpture.

Quick early morning insomnia thought: Lately I have almost started to think that Everything is sculpture.
At least, the sculptural process seems to fit across most all disciplines - writing filmmaking, painting, etc...

Long lost tree stump library in prenzlauerberg found

I have been on Dr Reecard Farché (aka Anklepants )'s ever since seeing him perform at the network awesome party last summer. A few weeks back he had posted some interesting shirt designs so I wrote back saying I'd like one- alas I have no idea how to buy things on the Internet and I didn't want to give any money to Deutshe Post (especially since they recently sold the c/o Berlin building (aka postführamt) to an Israeli who is turning it into an wffing luxury hotel- blah blah- anyhowwwww) so: basically I want I buy a hand made shirt and give 100% of the proceeds to the guy who is selling it- but as it turns out there weren't any left in my size so the email exchange went back and forth for a few weeks until yesterday when I actually had the evening free after work and just trekked my arse up north in the snow getting off the U2 at senefelder Platz (sighing at the sight of cafe Chagall where we used to feed hangovers with their cheese breakfast platters back before the Pfefferberg was renovated- or eat borscht and drink beer by the fire in winter... Ja, I walked up kollwitzstrasse a few bloks and realized that I hadn't been in that exact part of town in YEARS- and it suddenly reminded me that I
Might be getting Near that tree stump library I had randomly found circa 2008-9, checked out the hobbit from
And then NeVER been able to find again- when when turning the corner onto Sredzkistraße suddenly - there it was! Long lost tree stump library! Now I can finally return the Hobbit!
