Hi. Today at 10:55 we played the biggest industrial show in recorded history to millions of unsuspecting listeners, utilising the German national emergency signaling system. With the combined force of hundreds of sirens installed all over Germany, the drop could be heard in the whole of the country.
The dullard will say: “But that ain’t real!” We ask: What is so important about that reality you think you share with others not brighter than yourself? Whom does it help? What wrong does it heal? In this year 2020 we make a national emergency signal test into a rave party because we have no other choice. We heard frightened people ask: “Why do they have to trigger alarms in a year where everyone is on edge already?”
We answer: because 2020 is not exceptional. You remember when these people whined about their favorite actor dying in 2016 and blamed the year, mecury retrograde or whatever other shit they could find. Here is your reality: It’s getting worse. Earth will heat up. Pandemics will become more frequent and likely in your lifetime you will wish for this one back. This was expected.
We may need these sirens in working order because we know what’s coming.
What we need more than the sirens though is the will to make something from nothing and the resilience to go on. As long as we have a choice we must not make the dullard’s reality ours.
Do not cling to your normal. Move forward into the darkness with chaos in your heart so we still have hope for the birth of dancing stars.
X escaped curfew city Antwerp and we’re hanging in here together again. Mikoku helped out with cocktail designs from an undisclosed location in Bavaria, we will pick up the booze to cast our new Pineapple Quarantini into material reality.
Since the recipe requires frozen pineapple we sacrificed a fruit this week. The sexual tension was unbearable. See video above.
We party like it’s 1999, the year before the crisis hit.
Set went pretty well, X played most of it. We uploaded it to mixcloud again so you you can listen once more. Set was so good it triggered our cactus to bloom. True fact.
My dad has cancer. Leukemia. A couple of years ago they would have given him chemo and hoped for the best. But that’s not what happened. He got a targeted therapy that entered the market only 6 months before he was diagnosed. His blood levels are back to normal and while we know there is no cure, we are confident that he will die with cancer. Not from it.
How is this possible? It is due to amazing people that help pushing the boundaries of what is possible and they are right in our middle. Last week I interviewed Simon the Scientist and he gave us a glimpse how advances in immunology and systems biology gives us better perspectives for treatment.
This Wednesday I will interview Mark Haigh. Mark is bringing in support from a different angle of attack: He organizes funding with his charity BEAT:CANCER, where he raises money by organizing alternative and hard dance events. Also he is proud owner of at least one incredibly ugly bra that sold him at least n+1 raffle tickets.
So if you like to learn how Mark helps researchers to get closer to the next breakthrough, how I once gave him a concussion with my dick and how we pay for my dad’s treatment please tune in on
Wednesday, 2000CEST, 7PM Island Time.
The global uprising of the uncool. Expect a rollercoaster.
