Why hasn't anyone responded to what CB wrote? How boring that this forum becomes a place for self-promotion and bad poetry (and horrible spelling).
Thank you Claire- for those of us who can't afford to fly all over the world (or don't care to be part of the festivalism) your review painted a vivid picture. But why this surface-level return to feminism and body-art? some kind of hangover?
they are lyrics.
lets start down this road again... fuck spelling who is trying to get an A
“sounds pretty formulaic, the gg have become a parody of themselves,”
there is your response to feminist rehash
dude, “DIARY” - give me a fucking break, it is all self premotion...
“The best bellinis came courtesy of Art Review and Jens Hoffmann; the best outfits were at the Guggenheim (elderly Peggy wannabes robed in lurid hues and complex textures). For these smartly dressed punters, Martinez and María de Corral's commercially digestible biennale-cum-art-fair was just the ticket. In retrospect, 2003's curatorial excess and engagé impenetrability looked staggeringly radical.”
- you call that an Art review??
dude. you are so angry. what gives?
Yeah, what gives?
A vivid picture for those of us who couldn't go.
I really like tampon chandeliers. Makes me want to slit my wrists lengthwise.
Now I'm going to have an Old Holland tallboy and make some art.
Yes, at least Claire talks about the curatorial concept and mocks the scene as opposed to Rimanelli's exaltation in being gasp an INSIDER!
Why doesn't he just write: sipping my gin and juice laid back with my mind on my money and my money on my mind?
actually not that pissed off with life in general, things are going quite well... well enough that i am offically over the circle jerk bs.
call a spade a spade, your merchants, fashonistas and sluts.
A tampon chandaleir is coolbut I believe if you want to reference Judy Chicagothe tampons should be used.
right. it is called going backwards. feminsim as fashion. ...
clearlly liegh bowery is far more relevant as Art,
A tampon chandelier is a dust magnet. But you know, I'll go with the flow, yo.
the best thing to do with a tampon is to soak it in water/ or other liquid so that it expands and then holding it by the string, hurl it at the ceiling where it will stick until dry
oh wow - no way - I'm watching this one (cd)
Free Adorno, Free Benjamin
An Open Letter to Jan Philipp Reemtsma, Regarding His “Intellectual Property”
Jan Philipp Reemtsma
Hamburg Foundation for the Advancement of Science and Culture
Dear Jan Philipp Reemtsma,
you are a man of immense wealth - a wealth that is not limited to the material
world, but stretches far into the realm of the intellectual. You have founded
and are continuously funding a number of institutions and archives that claim to
serve the public by advancing both scientific research and cultural expression.
Today, we have to notify you that, just as your material riches are about to
increase by another few thousand Euros, you have irrevocably lost the rights to
some of your most precious pieces of “intellectual property”.
As you, as its president, must be aware of, the Hamburg Foundation for the
Advancement of Science and Culture has sued - and obtained a preliminary
injunction against - the owner of textz.com, who, according to your lawyers,
Senfft, Kersten, Voss-Andreae and Schwenn, has caused your foundation damages of
more than 2,300 Euros by making available for download two essays by Theodor W.
Adorno. Even though textz.com, by never paying or even acknowledging these
fictitious damages, has given you sufficient time to realize your mistake, you
have filed for and obtained a warrant of arrest against the - still undefended -
Jail time for copying Adorno: that's where you have crossed the line that
separates ordinary copyright cases from extraordinary tales of copyright madness
- despite, and maybe just because, the formal correctness of your procedure. As
an “intellectual proprietor” of Theodor W. Adorno and Walter Benjamin, you
should be aware of the power that still emanates from their works: a negative,
dialectical, weak and historical power that stretches far beyond the reach of
any court of law, and that it impossible to contain in any of your archives.
“Intellectually”, Adorno and Benjamin will always escape the idea of becoming
commodities, and their works, even as the private property they have become,
have a peculiar tendency to vanish the very moment you try to get hold of them.
The question of “intellectual property” is not if the producers of creative
works should be denied their right to material reproduction through their
creative work, or if the temporary owners of such works should be hung by the
guts of their lawyers. The question of “intellectual property” is when it will
finally be acknowledged that the people have a universal right to the
reappropriation of the means of production, that creative works - however
privatized and commodified they may have become - are a such means of
production, and that their reproduction ist a fundamental and fully legitimate
form of production itself.
Even confronted with today's draconic laws against digital reproduction - the
state of permanent emergency and institutionalized panic that is the “war
against piracy” - people have never ceased to copy, paste, modify, save, upload,
download, print and share digital data. In the case of “intellectual property”,
the power of the factual exceeds by far the power of the law. The people are
perfectly aware of the historical fact that no law is ever just given. Law is
created though factual struggle, and it erodes through factual struggle. Thus,
the critique of “intellectual property” cannot remain individual, sporadic, and
theoretical - it has to become swarming, massively parallel, and practical.
We are glad to announce that, effective today, every single work by Adorno and
Benjamin that you claim as your “intellectual property” has become part of the
very public domain that had granted you these copyrights in the first place. Of
course they will not be available instantly, and of course we will not publish
them ourselves - but you can take our word that they will be out, in countless
locations and formats, and that not even a legion of lawyers will manage to get
them back. Maybe it helps if you think of your “intellectual property” as a
genie, and of your foundation as a bottling business.
We like non-fiction, and we live in fictitious times. We live in a time where we
have fictitious “intellectual property” laws that serve fictitious copyright
holders. We live in a time where we have fictitious private institutions that
are going to war against piracy for fictitious reasons. Whether it's the fiction
of rights management or the fiction of intellectual theft - we are against this
war, Mr. Reemtsma. Shame on you, Mr. Reemtsma, shame on you. And any time you
got the Arts and the Sciences against you, your time is up.
Thank you very much,
The Berlin Foundation for the Advancement of Production and Reproduction
February 24, 2004
P.S.: We know that German Neo-Fascists have attacked you numerous times for the
exhibition on the crimes of the German Wehrmacht, curated by your Hamburg
Institute for Social Research, and that they continue to defame you as the “heir
of a tobacco company”, which not only, and in the first place, perfectly fits an
anti-semitic cliché, but also resonates, in many of these defamations, with
hints to your “personal responsability for the death of millions of smokers”.
Please be assured that - even though we don't share your opinion that said
exhibition was a “success”, and even though tobacco may be just another
commodity that kills - we, as a group of smokers who know the Germans and their
history, are on your side, no matter what, in defense of society against
Fascism. If you side with us in defense of wealth against scarcity is an
entirely different question - but we bet that one day you will.
hu - mayb3 - that really should be pretty simple - maybe it isn't; first question: can you post (and to what length) someone else's copywrite material: answer that question and we'll work from there: contexts of sugestion for down loading (obviously, inheratly very easy) may also play a part):

Formula One shoots itself in foot again
Mon 20 Jun, 6:44 AM
INDIANAPOLIS (Reuters) - Formula One has struggled to win over the United States since a grand prix in Phoenix 14 years ago sold fewer tickets than an ostrich race across town.
Decimated by the withdrawal of 14 cars due to tyre safety concerns, Sunday's U.S. Grand Prix did nothing to enhance its reputation.
In one stroke, the ‘race’ wiped out whatever gains had been made over the last few seasons and dealt the supposed glamour sport a major setback in a key market for sponsors and manufacturers.
After talk of expanding to Las Vegas or New York, Formula One's future in the United States looks far less promising. It may not even have one, although Indianapolis has a year to run on its contract.
An estimated crowd of 120,000 people, one of the biggest of the year at a grand prix, paid good money to watch a motor race at the Brickyard on Sunday.
What they got was just six cars, four of them the slowest in Formula One, with angry fans hurling beer cans and bottles on the track in frustration.
The fiasco could go down as the worst public relations own-goal yet in a sport that has never been shy of shooting itself in the foot.
Briton David Coulthard, one of the 14 drivers going nowhere after the seven Michelin teams pulled out before the start because of safety concerns about their tyres, summed it up succinctly enough.
“Even if we do come back, half the crowd in the stands today won't be back. That's for sure,” the Red Bull driver said.
Minardi boss Paul Stoddart was even more stinging in his criticism.
“If you run something as badly as what we've done today, you wouldn't be surprised if there was never another U.S. Grand Prix,” he said.
“Today Formula One lost sight of the word sport.
Ferrari's Michael Schumacher crossed the finish line first but, even if team boss Jean Todt likened the result to a technical knockout in boxing, there were no winners.
Michelin messed up, bringing a tyre that could not be used with any guarantee of safety for a race in one of the world's most litigious countries.
As one prominent team member said after the race: ”You've got a letter saying the tyres are unsafe, you're in America, what can you do?“
Michelin said they had acted responsibly, in the interests of safety, and once the problem became evident with Ralf Schumacher's crash in Friday practice there was room for a possible compromise.
Nine of the 10 teams wanted a temporary chicane put in before the slingshot final banked corner to reduce speeds and lessen the huge forces on the rear left tyres.
Champions Ferrari and the governing International Automobile Federation (FIA) said no.
The governing body offered instead three alternatives: running more slowly through the turn, using a different tyre and picking up a penalty or repeatedly changing a tyre.
Despite several meetings, nobody would compromise and at that point all of Formula One failed.
”Formula One and motor sport fans throughout the World are the losers today. The FIA is now awaiting a report from its observer in Indianapolis before deciding on the next step,“ said FIA president Max Mosley.
Others saw yet further evidence of the political battle between Mosley and the carmakers, who are threatening their own series from 2008 and are involved with five of the seven teams that did not race on Sunday.
The FIA, which published draft proposals for 2008 regulations last week, has also said it wanted a single tyre supplier in future and Michelin's position will not be strong.
Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone looked weaker too, with the sport's ruler failing to broker an agreement that might at least have given the fans the entertainment they paid for.
”This is going to leave a long, lasting bitter taste in people's mouths,“ Coulthard added.
”Quite frankly, as a driver, I'm embarrassed to be involved in this situation.
“The fact is that mature adults were not able to put on a show for everybody. It's a very sad day for racing.”
