I will try to post a soundcloud link about a very special Chicago phenomena.
Footwork or JUKE…it is a very nice, weird and experimental music style and also
a way of dancing, I have gotten a lot o fenergie sout of this lately.
Hope you like it…AND IF u get the chance to see the little genious DJ Rashad
do it for me and report back….Traxman & DJ Spinn would also be good.
Missed them playing there on the 22 of July…jajajaja
ok let see how this works…I blogg on 3 other sites as we speak and they ALL work
differently, I will try the 3 different ways I know…
Here are other blogs I do if anyone is interested…
and this one about life as an AIR guy in Detroit.
I didn’t know u had a famous man, I which I had know so I could have licked more ass!
Tortoise in the house!!!!!!!
Here are some general ideas about art from other blogs that I stand by…
Kama Sutra theory vs actually FUCKING!!!
I totally agree with this statement and general attitude of my brotherman Chris in his blog below….
“And if you don’t make things, you don’t understand shit about what life is all about. Well, that’s how I see it, at least.”
I am also making drawings again, and it feels so GOOD!
Some Rietveld student said that another teacher had said (don’t know who)
“There is no art without some kind of craft or skill connected to it”
Even thinking has a system connected to it that you can “get better” at.
But to involve your BODY and sweat into your practise is SOOOO important, there is so much knowledge & wisdom hidden in there.
The Americans talk about “muscle memory”, meaning the skills to drive cars or play tennis, or bike around. For you to get good at those things, knowledge HAS to move from the brain to the muscles.
It is something that interests me enormously and is often why I think purely conceptual art is often missing a certain type of (body) wisdom.
By the way…is Arnon Grunberg a good writer, isn’t he just a good thinker, or is that something else…I guess it is?
I guess you could be a good speaker (Obama). It doesn’t automatically make you a good writer. Can you trust DJs who can’t or even worse WON”T dance???!!! I don’t think so.
Could you become a good lover by just studying Kama Sutra theory?
“Performing the Social” is a especially apt title to this text!
Is that blues code speak for “the old in & out”?
Shit I wished I could dance like this…next life maybe…
If u scroll down here is a text I written about Detroit Techno, politics and race called…
Techno is probably the most racially mixed music style in the world.
Invented by black kids in Detroit, after some inspiration from Kraftwerk.
so interesting is just the beginning…
Techno, from Germany to Detroit & black…the race is on!
(Detroit Techno part I to III)
After Kevin and Kirsten came to visit us in Detroit and we talked about art I wrote this piece
that will be published in Proximity magazine and was published in LA too…
It is called
“My (The) Problem with community art…and why Williiam Burroughs eat Superflex any day of the week”
