• Disclaimer IV


    1) I don't want to bother you with stuff from yesteryear here anymore. But on the other hand I don't really want to write down too much about what is happening "now", this week, this month, too. I think there should be one entry a week here, though.

    2) I have looked up if there is something new to find if I google my name. So that I may write: "Well, this is a wrong quote." Or "That's not me." To protect myself from wrong associations - even though this won't change anything about ads and mails I get to see, that were generated by some sort of "profiling". I tend to ignore these, anyhow. So:
    - People have been lokking for my telephone number. There is a wrong one at some old homepage I don't use anymore. In fact I only own a mobile.
    - Somebody has also looked up my "email name activity reports". Okay.
    - The usual vebidoo-, radaris-, etc.-entries.
    - Yes, I used Photobucket once. Somehow this has re-appeared at Google.
    - Some mentions for my writing, thinktanking, djing and curating jobs. All neutral or positive. One example plus some moving pictures concerning I CAN BE YOUR TRANSLATOR are here.
    - This - whereever on that page - is not me.
    - You won't find my FB-account here.
    - Yahoo knows someone with the same name in Switzerland.
    - The fourth picture Google shows us has Christoph Schlingensief in it. Everybody who is not me there is somebody I have written about once. Gidropony and CocoRosie can be found quite soon. I like that.
    That's all nothing to get excited or hysterical about.

    3) Of course I sometimes do wonder who some of the writers in my comment section are. But I can't really differentiate between the state of art of a) robots, b) trolls and c) funny anonymists anyway. Maybe this is even a "service" of for people who don't make "friends" here? So what.

    4) Anything else I worry about concerning this web-thing here and me? Not now.

    So here are ten of my FB-postings not dealing with music and of the last five months. As it is, in German.

    Das haben wir bei "Soziale Systeme" an der Uni irgendwie nicht besprochen.

    Vitali Klitschko - seit '96 von Deutschland aufgebaut. (Durfte erstmal vor allem gegen Amis gewinnen, Linksausleger). Schöne Fotos im Staatsfernsehen:

    Übrigens: 15.1. war nur mal der FB-Geburtstag dieser Web-Identität hier - glaub ich. Beglückwunscht mich also bitte wenn dann zu etwas anderem. Danke!

    "Man will Tee zubereiten. Das Wasser kocht noch nicht. Man muß also warten. Die Differenzen Tee/andere Getränke, Kochen/Nichtkochen, Wartenmüssen/Trinkenkönnen strukturieren die Situation, ohne daß es nötig oder auch nur hilfreich wäre, die Einheit der jeweils benutzten Differenz zu thematisieren." (That's Niklas Luhmann again.)

    Googelt man "Staatspop" kommt man über Jakob Augstein zu Berthold Seliger:

    100 Jahre erster Weltkrieg. Im Westen Karneval, im Osten Balkanisierung der Ukraine.
    Überwindet Deutschland nun also endlich sein Stalingrad-Trauma und es klappt wieder mit der NATO? Der Zeitpunkt jedenfalls ist gut gewählt (und das "traute sich niemand ihn zu behandeln, weil.." ein echter Schenkelklopfer):

    Deutschlandweit zieht Russland seine Leute langsam ab. Nur einige Extremidioten von Die Linke müssen bleiben. Die Google-Anfrage "Raketenschutzschild" erreicht Höchstwerte in Deutschland - was aber nicht veröffentlicht wird. Und in der realen Welt: Hamsterkäufe bei Lidl! Und in Rüttenscheider Cafés suchen Menschen unbewusst im Keller nach der Toilette. Tja, hätte man schon diese unterirdischen "Messe-Kongresshallen", dann wüsste man wohin.

    Handstreich im Bundestag: Wie Abgeordnete um 0:25 Uhr ein Bürgerrecht aushebelten

    1) March 26, 2014
    Oh weh und hurra. Kettenbriefbespaßung. Los geht's:

    "Die Regeln: Nicht zu lange nachdenken. Schreibe 15 Autoren aller Richtungen auf, die dich beeinflusst haben und dir immer erhalten bleiben werden. Liste die ersten 15 auf, die dir in weniger als 15 Minuten einfallen. Dann nominiere mindestens 15 Freunde, inklusive mir, damit ich sehen kann, welche Autoren es bei meinen Freunden werden. Um loszulegen, kopiere dies und stelle es vor deine Aufzählung."

    Hier also die Aufzählung:
    1. Voltaire
    2. Oscar Wilde
    3. Diedrich Diederichsen
    4. Lawrence
    5. Edgar Mennicken
    6. Nikolai Wojtko
    7. Jacques Derrida
    8. Arthur Kroker
    9. Franz Kafka
    10. Gustave Flaubert
    11. Julie Burchill
    12. Thomas Meinecke
    13. Benjamin von Stuckrad-Barre
    14. Peter Erik Hillenbach
    15. William S. Burroughs

    Wer von euch mag den Faden weiterspinnen? (...) Hm, also einerseits habe ich ja gar nicht viele Freunde hier, aber vielleicht welche die mehr schreiben als die Genannten - ich weiß es nur womöglich nicht. Können auch mitmachen!

    (What I liked about the whole thing was that I mentioned authors whose writing - as in "style" - influenced me, while I suspect(ed) my friends to mention authors whose writing - as in "content" - influenced them.)

    In March I worked with people from the following,
    not already mentioned, institutions, too:
    Essen Marketing GmbH
    Community Promotion
    Silke Seibel
    BNP Paribas Real Estate
    Dutch Design Desk Europe
    NRW KULTURsekretariat
    Kunsthaus Essen
    Galerie Goltz
    Oliver Schmidt Hairdesign

    I earned less than Euro 1000,- with all that in this month.

    I am drawn a bit towards Düsseldorf as my favorite town "next door" at the moment, and away from Dortmund.

    My four jobs for Labkultur were done quite dutifully this month. As it is, there will only be three to be done in April and May.

    I smoked less when in that room for three weeks.

    Was pleased to read about one more follower via twitter. I don't follow people there and have just reduced the amount of bands etc. I follow via (my semi-anonymous) FB(-account). I will re-follow Camille Davila via FB, though! (Hi, you are very welcome!) We wrote each other a few years ago, because I really liked "Wireless World" by her. Now something has happened, and we can guess a bit about that via this song about the "too much too soon" of a relationship. Isn't it? Maybe it's not.
    I have only two other followers (I guess) I have never met. This was much different in my myspace-days. Glad I have moved on.

    Rarely ever wrote as much in only one month as I did in March. April should be different.

    What can I do? This is the best picture I found underground, I mean: downstairs. Not really "Cars & Girls", but "Bunnies & HiFi" from back in the days of late Wirtschaftswunder. 20th century boys' wet dreams, especially if a bit autoamerican, so to speak. Or autogerman? Nice irony in that combination in that pic, isn't there? Plus "1967" fits somehow (with me), and soon it will be Easter. So: Never stop exploring your neighborhood - it may be large, deep and rich!

    Laid these books out in the front room on Thursday. Would have been fun, if any of the therapists from upstairs had come in. But I will see lots of freelancing psyche docs in my own quarter again soon anyhow. Maybe there is no need for more.
    I leave that "Living structural change" poster in there as long as possible. It fits so well. Maybe this is the other "star" of the three week project, apart from these Dubai tower postcards.
    There were two days of strike in town (no subway etc.) and even a bomb disposal! But that's nothing: Next in this room there will be three people performing a "Chain Reaction"!

    10.10 a.m.
    So I have re-arranged the furniture early and already met the head of the French centre of culture in Essen. We exchanged restaurant recs for the inner city. Not much happening there, especially when looking for a good place for guests on a Sunday. As in Bochum, the theatre restaurant only opens when there is a performance. This makes me think again: Can any of the stores or pubs or whatever in the heart of this city be any good? And what does this tell us about its owners and helpers? Let alone the customers!
    First listen in here today: "(Cunts are still) Running the world" by Jarvis Cocker. Put only one half of the lights on.

    11.50. a.m.
    Today I am finally - as the "curtain" is down - able to watch lots of effort being put into hairstyling. Is it that these women love themselves (and each other) only if they look as if drawn from a catalogue or some tv show or movie? Or is it more about their husbands and whoever they can keep going with that? Do men prefer Barbies (concerning outer appearance)? Since when? Everywhere? Or is this Barbie thing a way for women to "feel clean"? I really hope they don't do this for their men. Even though the other option does not really sound better. But if they do this for themselves, they possibly can do totally different things for themselves, too. Right? Oh no! Let's hope they are doing this for their men! :)
    I really like this song by The Dandy Warhols, too.

    4 p.m.
    Had a business lunch and then a coffee I couldn't really drink until now - because so many people either move in or out of this place and others call or come over spontaneously to use this room later in the year. After four hours of talking I am a bit dizzy. Was fun to listen to "Magical Mystery Tour" before all this happened.

    5.20 p.m.
    Had a look if the subway is really working today. It is. Means I will be able to bring the stuff I hide in the backroom back today and - hopefully - tomorrow. Had walked here this morning as I was up very early. This place (and subway station) is called "Hirschlandplatz". I used to call it "Platzhirschland" in the 90s. "Hirschland" was the name of a mayor or sth, I guess. A "Platzhirsch" is a "top dog", an "alpha male", says my dictionary. To me it is an aggressive and bold person who thinks that just because he or she remains mostly at the same place he or she can fill that room with his or her personality. This of course is a pure illusion that gets you if you suffer from claustrophobia and tunnel vision.
    Listening to "Low Life" by New Order.

    2014-03-28 16.20.54

    6 p.m.
    Took out the garbage. Better: Brought it into that room downstairs. Took a picture of a pic on one door there. May show that tomorrow. I leave my "desk" here, a wooden plate, for one of the people moving in. Why? He is doing Upcycling business. Found a Santa Claus, wrapped in plastic, downstairs, too, and a bike with flowers wrapped around it.
    Can I leave now? "Let's Go" from that soundtrack is on, because this was the deluxe version of "Low Life" - of course.
