Ένα παράδειγμα ανεπάρκειας νοητικής ικανότητας (τόσο τέλειο, που αξίζει το reblog)

σημείωμα ανάληψης ευθύνης ύστερα από φασιστική απόπειρα εμπρησμού στην Κατάληψη Αγρός (πάρκο Τρίτση) τον Απρίλη του 2010
Το κείμενο είναι τόσο τέλειο στη γελοιότητά του που δεν μπόρεσα να αντισταθώ στο να αντιγράψω τη φωτογραφία

on the struggle for a new holistic economy.

Just to add to a previous post, here's another group that targets the way economics is taught in Universities for ages, faulted, neoclassical,selective, doomed.

Toxic Textbooks (like Kickitover/addbusters) is a movement to promote the teaching of economics that will engage with the real world.

One of the blogs I'm following did a recent post that made me very Jealous, and reminded me how awesome some Moorcock book covers are!

"There's no real harmony as we have concieved it"

"I love it against my better judgement"

Nobuhiko Obayashi

Nabuhiko Obayashi is one of my biggest heroes. His films are like nothing you've seen before, the editing is merciless. The most intense scenes can break your brain in pieces and his stunningly beautiful ones put it back together.

HOUSE is distributed by Janus films, you can buy it and read about it here.
Here's a fresh interview of his, and here are
the amazing piano scene from HAUSU, and his short film "Emotion". Indulge

Bus Stories.

So glad I found these again. They're from my highschool graduation exhibition, from a work called 'bus stories' which was a big wooden box with all these small cards I'd made, of people in the bus being in their on worlds aw. I think it looked lovely, I'll try and find some photos of the complete thing. These small pictures was how I broke our house printer too. would paint on them then print on wet paint, or pull the paper mid-printing and moronic things like that. There are 18 of these all together.
