“Babalon”

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast
Full of names of blasphemy and written on her
Forehead was MYSTERY – Babalon the great
Mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth.

Then an angel cried, saying Babalon is fallen and
Become the habitation of devils and the hold of
Every foul spirit. For all nations of the earth have
Drunk the wine of the wrath of her fornication and
The kings of the earth have fornicated with her,
And the merchants of the earth are waxed rich
Through the abundance of her delicacies.

Chorus:
Babaloon the Great -mud mother
Babaloon the Great -soil sister
Babaloon the Great -she was Mary Magdalena
Babaloon the Great -she’s your Whore Madonna

I believe in one earth, the mother of us all and in
One womb wherein all men are begotten and
Wherein they shall rest, mystery of mystery, in her
Name,
Babalon, crimson queen, she was painted,
Tainted, unclean
Undermining family life
Everybody’s mistress, nobody’s wife

Our father lied -she never died
Love became obsession and gulf between body

And soul opened wide
Conscience was a bleeding heart
Tore all lovers apart
Made a sword in the shape of a cross and a bomb that
Cried
“God’s on your side.”
He said “You’re born to die, life’s all sorrow
Don’t change the world, think only of tomorrow”
Millions were killed, tortured and maimed
Allah be praised, she ought to be ashamed

Chorus:
She’s not a screen dream to hang on the wall
Or a wet machine to peep beneath your pillow
She’s not your girl next door or an ice queen to
Waste away for
She’s Babalon, equal to man
She’ll do what she wants to do what she can
But Gad said the word, still heard now
“If she’s not a virgin, she must be a cow”

Sparge verba, sparge verba, sparge verba Ñ•
Venus orta mari
Exaudi penis carmina blanda precor
Phallum ejaculum tibi feram semper in meo amore

Babalon, I’m waiting for you, I’m begging for you
Babalon listen to me, listen to me etc. NOW
Babalon you’ve got to come back
Bababababababababa Babalon
Please come back
Bababababababababababababa

“Strobe light”

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Where’s my telephone?
Is that you baby? Yeah!
Got something to tell ya. Oh, what?
I wanna see ya tonight.
I want you to walk in the door.
I want you to lay on the floor.
Cause tonight’s the night.
We make love under a strobe light.
Underneath the strobe light.

Wanna make love to you under the strobe light.
Wanna make love to you under the strobe light.
Strobe light, wooooooah, strobe light, wooooooah, yeah!

Pulsin’ light goes to my head!
Everything I see is red!
Baby, when I kiss your hair,
I feel electricity in the air.

I’m gonna kiss your eyes. (gasp)
Then I’m gonna kiss your neck. (groan)
Then I’m gonna kiss your tummy. (oooh!)
Then I’m gonna kiss your PINEAPPLE! (shriek!)

Tonight’s the night for love under the light.
Strobe light, strobe light.
Underneath the strobe light.

Wanna make love to you under the strobe light.
Wanna make love to you under the strobe light.
Strobe light, wooooooah, strobe light, wooooooah, yeah!

I just wanna make love to you.
I just wanna make love to you.
Underneath the strobe light.
Strobe light! Strobe light! Strobe light!
Strobe light! Strobe light!
Strobe strobe strobe strobe strobe light.

As far as I can see, this was my 40K, and I average just a little more than 19 Tweets/day.

I was “Alt For Meget” (“Way Too Much”)! Roskilde Festival 2014 retrospective #rf14

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

Alt For Meget

Roskilde Festival defines my culture, and when I, unexpectedly got the chance to go this year, I was a happy camper. My ticket only had one string attached: “YOU HAVE TO GO SEE SPIDS NØGENHAT”! Those terms were acceptable to me.

I decided to act as some sort of journalist during the festival, and I was very active on social media mostly deep undercover representing the 1980’ies Copenhagen punkzine “Alt For Meget“.

I shared some details on how I covered Roskilde Festival from the cell phone.

This post is focusing on the highlights, bt I have curated a “Storify” that includes most of my social media posts, and you can view that as a slideshow below. It probably requires “subtitles” and a lot of it only made sense “live”.

Get A Tent

The soul of Roskilde is in the camps, but I also find it a bit stressful, so I chose the luxury option for camping, “Get A Tent”. The concept is that your tent has already been pitched, so you’re ready to move in as soon as you have checked in.

After the festival you can choose to keep the tent, leave it behind or pack it up and drop it at “Camp Aid”, and the tents are sent to refugee camps.

Camps

Despite being boring you still have full access to the camping area, and I enjoyed checking out the most interesting ones. A lot of camps have their own massive sound systems, most of them blasting euro-techno-stompers, but my favourite camp was Camp TOSM (Tors Orange Soccer Mon) that had an insanely loud box that every morning blasted “morning Slayer” much to the dismay of the immediate neighbours.

Camp TOSM were very friendly, invited me in and shared music recommendations.

Dream City


As always you stumble upon things if you follow your senses, I found Camp TOSM because of their loud music, but I was actually om my way to “Dream City”. I had no idea what Dream City was, but it sounded interesting. It turned out the Dream City is an experiment by the Roskilde Festival to have participants build unique camps and experiences.

There are four dogmas:

To be a part of Dream City you only need to follow the city’s dogmas:

  • Acquire a ticket to Roskilde Festival 2014 or become a volunteer.
  • Consider your project/camp as a gift to Dream City – something that can be shared with the rest of the ‘Dreamers’ and festival goers.
  • Think sustainable and socially responsible.
  • What you bring you must take with you again when you leave the city.

Dream City had a number of cool camps, I didn’t visit all of them, but I really liked the Dome, which acted as a signature.

It was also nice to see a makerlab/fablab where you for instance could get help building your own loudspeakers.

The Postoffice, #postkilde, was really nice, and they played hosts to a powerful morning workout session at 10 am, you might have seen it broadcast live at DR3 on the last day of the festival. Just what I needed.

Ungdommens Røde Kors (Danish Red Cross Youth Organisation) wanted you to make a flag, and I did that. When I explained what the flag represented they said that it was the most political statement they had heard so far 🙂

Dream City has the feel of the Burning Man festival, we’re not quite there yet, but if that is the direction Roskilde Festival is taking, I’m all for it.

ArtZone

THis year Roskilde Festival had an ArtZone located centrally in the festival area. It featured a number of installations for instance “The Forest” where you entered a room with strands of cloth suspended from the ceiling, you didn’t notice the other people in the room until they literally bumped into you.

There was also a game called Johann Sebastian Joust that seemed to be using hacked Sony Play conrtolleres.

It featured what looked like “hacked” Sony Play controllers (the game was controlled by standard computers, not a PlayStation).

The controllers were suspended from the ceiling and you have to grab two of your chosen colour.

The game sped up, and if you missed grabbing two controllers of your colour, you were eliminated.

The game was quite simple, fun and challenging.

Up to four players.

Food #rffood

Roskilde Festival really shines in the food department these days. We’ve come a long way from burgers, coke and fries. You can, of course, still get that, but in that case you’re missing out.

I remember just 6 years ago that you had to be lucky to find a small stall that sold sushi.

Not anymore. The flagship was the food court where they sold reasonably priced meals prepared by real chefs. My favorite was the Japanese street kitchen Yatai. They served an unlisted vegan stew that I lived on.

Music

Finally I also caught some music, this was, after all a music festival :-), I might do a longer post on the music alone, but I’ll mention some highlights.

Best music (part of the show was delivered purely acoustic)

Perota Chingo

Best jam (Top-notch old skool hip-hop and the fantastic DJ Babu)

Dilated Peoples

Most fun (circle pit)

Philip H. Anselmo And The Illegals

Best rock’n’roll

Helhorse vs. The Psyke Project

Best party

Major Lazer

Good company

Jack White

Honourable mention

The Rolling Stones

“Be With You”

Saturday, July 19th, 2014

Ooh baby
I love the way you make me feel
It slows down time
Come in my bedroom and turn off the lights

You whisper softly in my ear
Makes me unwind
The way you touch me
Lets me know you’re mine

I’d rather be with you
Because i love the way
You scream my name
And there’s no other man
That gives me what i want
And makes me feel this way
I’d rather be with you because
You hustle hard to take care of me
I’d rather be with you
Boy i’d rather be with you

I love the way you look at me
Stare into my eyes
What do they say to you
Boy don’t be shy
Tonight’s the night your fantasies
Will all come true
I am your woman
I belong to you

There is nothing i won’t do for you
I know my soul connected me to you
I feel so safe when i’m alone with you
I’m holding back nothin
Saving it all for you
Baby i love making love to you
It’s like a high i can’t come down from you

I’d rather be with you
Because i love the way
You scream my name
And there’s no other man
That gives me what i want
And makes me feel this way
I’d rather be with you because
You hustle hard to take care of me
I’d rather be with you
Boy i’d rather be with you

I’d rather be with you oh yea
Boy i rather be with you
I’d rather be with you oh yea
Boy i rather be with you

I’d rather be with you
Because i love the way
You scream my name
And there’s no other man
That gives me what i want
And makes me feel this way
I’d rather be with you because
You hustle hard to take care of me
I’d rather be with you
Boy i’d rather be with you

I don’t want nobody else
I ain’t goin no where
I’m happy with you
You got me baby
I ain’t thinking about
Nobody else but you baby

“Something About Us” <3

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

It might not be the right time
I might not be the right one
But there’s something about us I want to say
Cause there’s something between us anyway

I might not be the right one
It might not be the right time
But there’s something about us I’ve got to do
Some kind of secret I will share with you

I need you more than anything in my life
I want you more than anything in my life
I’ll miss you more than anyone in my life
I love you more than anyone in my life

Did you get our memo on @dilatedpeoples? “REMEMBER TO ALWAYS BE TRUE!” <3 #rf14

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

We know you got our memo on @dilatedpeople and their #rf14 monster jam, but here’s another

REMEMBER TO ALWAYS BE TRUE!

“You Can’t Hide, You Can’t Run”

You can’t hide, you can’t run
Remember to always be true, no matter what you do
I want it, I never front it, I got my whole crew life on it
Think sharp, man, listen, you can’t hide, you can’t run

Remember to always be true, no matter what you do
I want it, I never front it, I got my whole crew life on it
Livin’ thus in peace, indeed

Any day your last day might come so
You can’t hide, you can’t run
Late night in the shadows
When the daylight comes, remember
You can’t hide, you can’t run

Man, listen any day your last day might come so
You can’t hide, you can’t run from the truth
We know each and every day fights come
Remember, you can’t hide, you can’t run

It’s like this final destination, you tryin’ your best to make it
They say be patient but you know you’re cheatin’, death is chasin’
Heart beatin’, pulse racin’ but I keep the pace
And trained to be the best and beat the best by the gracie
(Livin’ thus in peace, indeed)

Grappler spectacular rapper sport of altercation
In self defense we hem ’em up, a tailored alteration
We’re firestarters leavin’ stages up in flames
Then again we’re firefighters, sprayin’ at whatever’s blazin’

Crazy ways to express and pass information
Daily makin’ the best of bad situations
We fight to win in whatever type of test we’re facin’
Hip-Hop came while they were underestimatin’

Amazin’ grace how sweet the sound, that’s what I was raised in
But then the crack and gangs flourished under Ronald Reagan
(You can’t hide, you can’t run)
Life insurance for kids, undertakers waitin’
Earth is purgatory, here between the Pearly Gates and Satan

Any day your last day might come so
You can’t hide, you can’t run
Late night in the shadows
When the daylight comes, remember
You can’t hide, you can’t run

Man, listen any day your last day might come so
You can’t hide, you can’t run from the truth
We know each and every day fights come
Remember, you can’t hide, you can’t run

Yeah man, listen I stay relevant
Only person I stand in the shadow of is Evidence
Last page, I left off a good look
This ain’t the next chapter, it’s a whole new book

About to steal the game, I’m a whole new crook
Bakin’ up that fire, I’m a whole new cook
Get your whole shit took, Cali’s back under the sun
So you can’t hide and you can’t run from the truth
(You can’t hide, you can’t run)

Some ain’t convinced so they decide to try me
Like I give a fuck, we live from India Arie
They got spies in cameras and trailers
We see ’em settin’ up, though we on counter surveillance
(Livin’ thus in peace, indeed)

On to me, I’m on to you, it’s no mystery
Better think fast though, the future’s just your history
It’s where the plot thickens, regardless of wealth
‘Cause the worst person to run from’ yourself
(Livin’ thus in peace, indeed)

Any day your last day might come so
You can’t hide, you can’t run
Late night in the shadows
When the daylight comes, remember
You can’t hide, you can’t run

Man, listen, any day your last day might come so
You can’t hide, you can’t run from the truth
We know each and every day fights come
Remember, you can’t hide, you can’t run

Remember to always be true, no matter what you do
I want it, I never front it, I got my whole crew life on it
Think sharp, man, listen, you can’t hide, you can’t run

Remember to always be true, no matter what you do
I want it, I never front it, I got my whole crew life on it
Livin’ thus in peace

Man, listen, you can’t hide, you can’t run
Remember to always be true, no matter what you do
Think sharp, man, listen
Livin’ thus in peace, indeed

Is that music speaking for it’s self?
You can’t hide, you can’t run
Now you can’t run
Now we’re Dialated, Dialated
Livin’ thus in peace

HARDSTYLE! Willkommen nach Welthauptstadt Berlin – World Cup – Association football illustrated in dance #sambabold #vmdr #vmdk

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

After the humiliating defeat by the brazilian association football team, I got this idea that what happened was a clash of culture and that it could be illustrated with differences in music and the way people in dance in different cultures.

The brazilian way of playing football is often compared to the dance of samba,so much so that the Danish National Broadcaster TV2 is using the hashtag #sambabold during the World Cup.

To illustrate the 1-7 defeat I turned to “hardstyle” an aggressive dance style that originated in europe, Belgium, but is popular in Germany.

HAAAARRRRDDDDDSTYYYYLLLEE! Willkommen nach Welthauptstadt Berlin

But I believe that Brazil will return, and thjs what happens when “Hardstyle” is given a “brazilian wax”, the style is called “Rebolation”, “Hardstyle” made sexy.

ps. Argentina is the clear winner in dance and music, and why don’t we just celebrate the World Cup, dance and music and all do the “Electro swing” <3

#sambabold->#hardstyle->#rebolation->#electroswing

Suspense tearing me apart
take your time and tease my heart
i really don’t even know your name
i gotta know if you’re meant for me

The Fantastic Four: Anne, Maren, Agnes and Voelve

Vis større kort

Museet for kunst i det offentlige rum (KØS) er på Danmarkstour (er det egentlig et dansk ord?), og jeg er fan <3.

I den forbindelse har de udskrevet en konkurrence om et nyt mindesmærke

Svaret er et rungende NATURLIGVIS! skal ikke bare Danmark, men hele verden, have et nyt mindesmærke.

Men medens KØS tourer Danmark rundt, så er der nogle der er ved at opføre et lige foran næsen på dem, jeg tænker på Byhave69, i øvrigt vil JEG ikke deltage i KØS konkurrence som individ, men jeg vil gerne samarbejde med andre om det, og det er det de kære #byhave69 mennesker gør – Do It With Others eller #DIWO – lige foran KØS’ næser!

I øvrigt kunne man da mene at KØS bare kunne have googlet det, og så, måske fundet mine gamle forslag til nye monumenter, men vi tager den lige for prins Knud.

  1. Marmorkirken – der er INGEN skulpturer af kvinder, her en de nominerede
    Marmorkirken - statues

    Vis større kort
  2. Jagtvej 69 – der stod der en bygning der var et monument TIL kvinder, det var nemlig her det, den 27. august 1910, blev vedtaget at der skulle indstiftes en international demonstrationsdag for kvinders rettigheder. Det skete på den 2. Internationale Kvindekongres, en international kvindekongres for Anden Internationale i København, i Folkets Hus på Jagtvej 69


    Vis større kort
  3. Og så en ny, i familie med Marmorkirken, Frue Plads har heller ingen monumenter af kvinder og inden i Vor Frue Kirke er der også kun mænd, omend englen med døbefonden er noget androgyn.
    Man kan selvfølgelig argumentere med at kirken og pladsen er tilegnet “Fruen”.
    Frue Plads (4370487465)

    Vis større kort

Mit forslag er al sin enkelthed at opføre tre kunstværker, gerne skulpturer, dedikeret til tre forskellige og ekseptionelle kvinder, vi kalder det

Light my fire

De tre kvinder kunne være nogle af dem jeg tidligere har foreslået:

Og så en ny nominering der er lidt for oplagt til #byhave69.

Are we not men? We are #D-I-W-O! We must repeat D-I-W-O! W-I-D-O killed the D-I-Y star W-I-D-O killed the D-I-Y star!

Er der nogle der vil være med til at konkretisere mit forslag? Så lad os “Do It With Others aka #DIWO”.

Vi tager lige lidt Natasja med en passende titel, det var jo hende der lærte mig at danse, og vi fik Amalfi-kystens citronlunde til at ryste sammen! Jeg savner dig!


Sådan så jeg ud den sidste gang jeg så Natasja, den 14. august 2004 <3
