12.04.11 - WORDS ABOUT WHATEVER
Wenn der Zweck die Mittel heiligt, dann haben wir es hier mit einer sich
selbst in den Schwanz beissenden Doppelfrechheit zu tun. Der allmächtige
Dilletantismus und das über dem Können stehende einfach-machen
sind Zündkerze, lange Leitung und Teilchenbeschleuniger zugleich.
Vielleicht ein Keyboard, vielleicht eine Triangel. Vielleicht der Schmadder
aus alter Cola und Fusseln auf dem Boden in der Ecke da drüben. Aus
allem kann man eine dumme Idee machen. Die Kid Ikarus Halbplaybackshow
auf Abwegen. Es lebe die dumme Idee.
11.02.11 - PIXIES
pretty last minute. the KID will, in some form, yet unknown to himself,
take part in tomorrow's actions at schokoladen. it's a Pixies cover evening,

zeit rumnervt, dass die "dance party" und das "dinosauererlied"

close my mouth for a half hour on the 51st floor in Manhatten and running
through an open firehydrant with Shaun and Elisse in Chicago.
