September, 2018 – Wow, this was hard. Like most of the artists featured in this art reports, I had to leave Venezuela. My story is material for another post, but the pertinent point is: I haven’t had a reliable Internet connection for a while and that’s the reason continuing this took so long. No excuses though. I have to be more reliable.
This second edition of the Venezuelan Art Report is a music special, because music  was my topic of choice before I promised to write about boring subjects, which I still plan to do. Someday in the future.

But for the time being, in the present, after the jump, you have a kickass Venezuelan Art Report music specialContinue reading

VIDEO: “Refuting and adding to The Needle Drop’s “Lil Yachty: Rap’s Punk Phase” video”

I went back to hip hop and lost all of my audience. I can’t blame them, this topic is old news and I spent more than two months without posting content in my You Tube channel. I’m going through changes in my personal life, I had to leave my country and my computer behind, I have no realiable Internet connection here and I’m literally homeless, but hey… that’s a topic for another post. The point I was trying to make: this is the last video on my classic set and probably the last one for a while in general.

It’s about hip hop and rock, mumble rap and punk and pop punk. It’s about culture and the lack of it. It’s about the new wave and the old school. Please watch it.

The formal information goes like this:  Continue reading

June, 2018. – We travel around the world for the inaugural Venezuelan Art Report.

Let’s make this space useful. I have access to a wealth of information almost nobody is privy to, all of the artists the Venezuelan Art Report will feature need exposure and an international audience and this blog needs some kind of focus. Everybody wins, especially you, the art connoisseur hungry for the new new new wave, for the skewed vision that coming from a destroyed country provides.

This is going to be incredible for all parts involved, I can feel it. And it starts now Continue reading

Video: “Refuting Elon Musk’s claims about Simulation Theory”

I finally stoped talking about hip hop.

Instead of dumbing it down for clicks and likes, I decided to go the other way and repel all possible audiences with my cheap super nerdy philosophy. I’m 100% right though, don’t get me wrong. In my mind it’s also a comedy video, although a complicated one.

Anyway, the formal information and Elon’s videos I’m replying to:  Continue reading

A Discordian story that might be true:

I wrote this in one of those pesky Discordian fakebook groups:

So, a few months ago, on my birthday, I woke up groggy and alone in the house. The sun was giving a weird light, and I immediately noticed something off in the CDs shelf. I went there and picked up an album I’ve never seen, the cover was an intense electric blue, metalic, and it reflected the light. I examined it, the title was “Discord” and I knew I was in the midst of it. I put it on and it was the most amazing music. Of course, nobody in this house knows where it came from.

Hail Eris, All Hail Discorja!

It’s not over until you listen to the whole album, above.

P.S. This song uses Ryuichi Sakamoto music, also.

About my participation in “Together” by Andy Gell

TogetherX

Look, there’s no way around it: I’m a published author now.

I contributed five or six paragraphs to Together” by Andy Gell, a The KLF inspired collaborative book already available.

It’s part of the huge amount of art The 400 are producing following this event, one which you should be familiarized with to understand the novel or even what I’m talking about here. It’s also book two on the “WTF Trilogy” by Mr. Gell.

Since I haven’t read “Together” yet, this post consists of a few quotes from the first glowing review it received:  Continue reading

COSIGN 008: Erykah Badu

We are all living in a cognitive-dissonance reality. We want to live a certain way or do a certain thing, and we don’t because we are emotionally attached to how the group thinks. The hive mentality takes over. But you know what’s right in your mind and your heart, and if you’re strong enough to detach from the hive then sometimes, just sometimes, you may be able to do the right thing.
