APRES POT SAL

Dear Funding Body

The internet is a fabulous place, for fantasy. The internet has no rules. It is great for having dreams and realising them. Even if the reality you create is nothing like real live at all. It is a multi faceted no wheres fabulousness for the wanna bes, gonna bes turning into somebodies. Can’t sing – YouTube hit. Can’t fit in a cardboard box properly – Get your own website and a million people who love cats following you.

So, in this very informal brief I would like to propose an idea that takes real fantasy, fantastic realness, mixes them all back together. Like phasing in an audio recording, will taking more than one of these things and bringing them together cancel one or other out – things that can or should only exist in mono?

What am I talking out. Let me reveal all.

I want to bring together the YouTube greats, Bangs, R.A.E.D., and Reh Dogg and get them to sing their own version of “We Are The World.”

A controversial selection because RAED has already got beef with Bangs after blowing up on his own Facebook page. Reh Dogg, because of the three he has the most advance video and musical skills. Even offering his services to others. Bangs will cry when he see RAED inability to keep in time.

Can they work together?
Will they blow up because they do not believe in the supposed talents of the other?
Will the dreams in a different reality exist for these three men who up until now, have existed alone and masters of their own universe?

I would like budget for :
Flying all three artists to London
Hotels for them all
A recording fee for them all
Recording studio and engineer – Anthony Chapman – at The Cooler on Belfast Road
YouTube video to be shot and produced by Nick Abrahams
Documentary video to be made by Phil Thompson if he can do it quicker than two rolls a month
Stills photographer Mrs Kipling
Psychologist on set at all times
And a 10% contingency budget

Thanks

Emma

Dear Readers

I realise that there are a lot of loose parts to that proposal but basically that is it. If there is someone who writes these things for a living who wants to flesh that out and turn it into something someone would actually read and consider giving money to me for, I would really appreciate it.

All new media artists look away now. Give up. Forget it. Game over. No extra time. You are done.

MAN AT WORK

Thanks for this link drx. I need to come to Stuttgart soon and bring a bottle of Baileys. If they make a vegan version.

How to rave.

I’m sitting in Anthony’s bed, in Anthony’s t-shirt waiting for Anthony’s new oven to arrive. Let’s hope it does take as long as my upstairs neighbours take between fucks.

OLIA LIALINA MARK 2

Q. How many geeks can you fit in one room?
A. Well can someone Google it for me?

Actually that isnt a real joke, I just made it up then. The real answer probably has something to do with bandwidth as well multiplied by LOLCats brb ygm.

…Check out this cool video [OMG Jurij is getting GIGANTIC now] that I got off Olia’s FB page.

This reminds me I miss the olden days of my life sometimes. And I dont get tomorrow off anymore so I miss out on making cakes for TeaandCake

OH GOD SO SORRY

I’ve been so busy with new boyfriend, work, travel – sorry I haven’t posted in a while.

I don’t really need to write this post, but I was lying in bed thinking about how I was going to have to do some serious excuse making. But then I got on Facebook and saw Cory Arcangel had made this instead:

So just read that an piece together a better excuse than mine for not hanging round here much lately.

TELETEXT 2ND TIME AROUND

Maybe you didn’t know when it happened but you definitely should now. Years ago, my ex husband and I had our own teletext TV station for two weeks in The Netherlands.

Called Microtel it was one of the projects curated by ambientTV.net as part of VBI [voluptuously blinking eye] – a submission for the exhibition “Satellite of Love” . This project was presented by the 35th International Film Festival Rotterdam in association with Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art and the TENT Centre for Visual Arts.

It was pretty booyah and we stayed in the gallery for two weeks. Another period of time together that eroded our relationship. But it was also a really fab time. If you want good food – go to Rotterdam – BANGING. I also talking about being a TV junkie on TV [wonder whatever happened to the live show footage?] and gave a presentation with favourite clips from TV alongside one of the Fiennes clan. All good.

Anyway we had hundred of people submitting their work for us to broadcast on the teletext channel called Microtel. You can see the work and read all about it on our website here.

Now some people in Germany have had a very similar idea to celebrate teletext there. Using the software Lektrolab / Beige are hosting, ARD Text are calling for submissions for their celebration. Read about it below and submit. Telext is pretty fun.

30 years of Teletext in Germany / ARD Text: call for teletext art works on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of teletext in Germany

Teletext in Germany is turning 30 and ARD Text is celebrating this anniversary with an art exhibition. ARD Teletext is looking for art works which fathom/sound out the graphic and technical possibilities of the medium. This link shows an example: the teletext piece MJ by artist Paul  B. Davis. The piece was also on view during the third part of the exhibition series Michael Jackson Doesn’t Quit at the Future Gallery in Kreuzberg which was supported by ARD Teletext.

The open call for visual and text-based works ends on August 1st, 2010. A jury decides which pieces will be shown on ARD Text in September. All winners will receive a limited edition teletext- 30th anniversary t-shirt. One main winner will be selected by the jury. The winner of the first prize will be invited to visit the editorial office of ARD Text in Potsdam (trip for 2 persons to Berlin (with DB coach, 2 overnight stays in a 3 star hotel w/ breakfast). Prizes cannot be transferred, substituted, or redeemed for any other prize.

Conditions of participation

The participants are licencing ARD Teletext to present/transmit the pieces on ARD Text (plus www.ardtext.de, www.daserste.de, rbb text and www.rbb.de) free of charge. Further copyrights remain with the artist.

The names of the winners will be published on ARD Text and www.ardtext.de.

Technical information

All works must meet the teletext standard. You can find free teletext graphic editors online which can be used to realize the art works. There is a short manual containing the most important technical details available for download from our website.

Additional general information and examples of teletext graphics can be found here

QUEENS OF CANNSTATT & THE BOBBY

In black is my friend Olia at the Wii Championships that were played at the Merz Acadmie recently. From what Drx said, he and his little son Juirj made the semi final!

I think Olia looks pretty good even though she is not wearing anything I gave her…

100% FIKA

I’m sitting in milkbar feeling the coffee time vibes and chillin 2 the maximum.

I’ve been laughing to myself cause Cory called his latest exhibition ‘Adult Contemporary’ which is a style Paul coined when describing Pippa’s old band All About Eve Babitz. Cory & Paul / Simon & Garfunkle (is that who I mean?) / John & Paul. All the greats.

I watched today how the boiler fixer man fixed the boiler. I will do it myself next time. It was a 20 second job. Working out CSS shits is more complicated and giving me a headache but I challenge myself to sort it. I also feel like some major DIY coming on this weekend – I have my porn movie drive in posters to pick up from the picture framer tomorrow.
