I dunno

lately I just dunno what kind of music to search for.
last time I went to a music store I got out with 2 cd's of "vive la fête" and the "beastie boys anthology", let's say 2 cd of disco and one of hip hop. (ok, at 19euro the 4 cd it was a bargain)
I discovered hard rock when I was about 10 but what I really loved was hard core, but harcore didn't exist in 1981 so I got into punk rock

then I got into new wave and after punk (this video sucks according to robert smith)


and what could be condsidered as gothic now.
then grunge came along and I loved nirvana and sonic youth (no video needed I guess)
then I mixed hardcore, grunge, goth and my fascination for motors and found out about
white zombie.

now I did have a couple of troubled years, but how I got from white zombie, sonic youth, the subways, nashville pussy, and the mummies to the beastie boys, ladytron and vive la fête is a total mystery.
mabe I'm just growing soft. whaddayathink?

but I really love vive la fête, they're total nihilistic and into cars and bikes
does that remind you about someone?...

32 - VISITORS




starting point for this one was "les visiteurs du soir" (The Devil's Envoys)
An old and highly poetic french movie, written by Jacques Prevert and directed by Marcel Carne. I hope you can catch it on TV sometime late at night, in the original version, with the scratches and softened noises covering the music of the original french text. The movie features two devil's emissaries coming on earth to play some evil tricks to the human heart, using their power to make fun of all love and feelings the poor living creatures have to endure. It also is a strong metaphore of the german Occupation and french collaborator govnerment as it was produced during WWII.
The picture of course also has a lot to do with Fuseli 's Nightmare

So. I guess I've been enough of a snotty artfag for today haven't I.
hope this one gives you nightmares.

don't ask me. it's the image that got into me today.
consider it my tribute to joaquin Sorolla.

maybe art is just the way our brain protects us from facing reality and dealing with those we really miss.
write your own story on that one and please post it as a comment. that could be fun.
sort of.
enjoy your summer.
