AFTER THE HIATUS

It’s good to be back.

HORRIFIC

Drx has been bombing  my inbox again. This time he has really given me THE FEAR.

No secret why they call him Nosie I guess.

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.

WEB 2.0

Lord Fauntleroy said that there is no such thing. [You can see that it was doomed from the off.]

I beg to differ and what I consider to be Web 2.0 – Facebook, Myspace, Friendster [remember that! LOL I wish I could remember my login and password] FLICKR [oh where would I be without you] and of course Blogger, rounded corners and scribble fonts.

An aside:
“OH yes! So yes I was right! My blogger files are on my server Lord Fauntleroy! You didn’t believe me.”

So tonight Drx and I chatted on ICQ like it was the good old days when we would chat on micromusic about Scooter, Marcel Masters would pop up every now and again with his hello kitty picture [OH MY DAYS - I think we had to have him banned or an official warning] and about falling in love and falling out of love and other such interesting matters. [No I never ripped out someone's spine and shoved it down their throat but I was close.] Drx told me that I must post something new on my blog for him to read in the morning or he will blow up the whole internet. I would like to see him try. I asked Bitch Ass Darius if the internet could ever ‘run out’ one day and he told me ‘no’ and explained about all kinds of things that would make it impossible.

Tonight, Drx and I used the internet to discuss Photoshop and it’s use to erase identity on the internet. I had found a wonderful collection from a Flickr user who was quite good at drawing sunglasses on his nudie wife.

And himself

Drx reminded me of this project on Nasty Nets

Here are two favourites from the collection


What a poser.


Hugged by a blob.

I wish I could find the pictures of the woman who has the pool cue up her fanny that I found while chatting to Silverlink one night on Facebook with the womans face all scratched out with the pencil tool but alas, I have no clue where they are right now.

OH YEAH and does anyone remember that gay website where men would discuss the interiors of people homes who had post nudie shots of themselves online around with the bodies all blanked out? It was amazing and big in like 2000 or so. If anyone remembers anything about this site please let me know. It was HILARIOUS. I submitted a picture of a friend of mine who was dressed in a rubber outfit cause the shelves behind him were atrocious.

Anyway – not a lot of gossip in this post or anything like that. I just had to do it to save the internet for all of us tomorrow lest Drx try to get up to no good.

WEB 2.0

Oh yeah! And on other matters of the heart, I’d been talking to someone recently trying to explain briefly what the difference between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 is – as it is something very dear to me. Anybody interested in New Media Art or who wonders WTF I have such a giant ‘coolection’ [not a spelling mistake Alex T] of animated .gif files should have a read. Dad – you should read these too instead of coming to my website looking for pictures of boobs.

A Vernacular Web by Olia Lialina [Web 1.0 shits]

Vernacular Web 2 by Olia Lialina [Web 2.0 shits - with glitter]

And finally, Dragan Espenscheid sent me a really cool Microsoft Paintbrush cartoon he did about some really dumb ravers. It is awesome! Check It Out Chicky Babes [I wish Daisy Dee was still on TV - those were the days on VIVA Zwei]

BODENSTANDIG 2000 UBER ALBUM


2008-03-08: UBER ALBUM mp3 release!!

The complete version of UBER ALBUM containing 20 tracks can be bought from these data traders as audio files:

FINE TUNES MUSIC SHOP
AMAZON US
7DIGITAL

Don’t accept DRM!

And why do I care so much? Because my track with BioBern is also one of the tracks on the MP3 version of Uberalbum The story of Lektrogirl vs Bodenstandig feat each other

And do you want to know what that story is? Here is an English translation from the hand of Bern himself:

- – 8< - - - - 8< - - - - 8< - - - - 8< - - - - 8< - - - - 8< - -

Lektrogirl sent me her new songs recently. Quite bleepy things she made. Though in real life she digs disco stomp and stupid techno. It’s her own fault that people connect her with Autechre and Aphex Twin.

“No”, she screams desperately, “i want that primitive shit that really rocks, like Scooter, Pet Shop Boys and Bobby Orlando!” (Of course she screams it in English.) Her fans probably think this is a satirical exaggeration in the style of Mark Twain. But it’s really true. It happens a lot that musicians are somewhere completely different from what their fans think…

This reminds me how just recently i sat on a meadow with a beautiful girl. She was young, unable to conquer her elegance and had a soul going over her ears. Around us raged a hooligan beer can party with punk rock and brit pop. If i was in love is not an object of this procedure and not of legal relevance until further notice. Love will of course not be outlawed and brings no danger to the new republic. The opposite: Used in a right manner it holds the facility to raise productivity and creativity of the individual, to strengthen the German economy against international competition — and through this save jobs!

As a precondition it is required that in the future love can be adequately measured so the distribution can be done more efficiently and closer to the needs of the citizens. First, for security reasons, *they* will measure the change of volume dV and the angle (alpha) of all dicks in real time. Of course via satellite and with a sub-pant method and without a privacy-invading intermingling with further individual data.

Despite all this it can be assumed that thought will stay free, until further notice. To sum it up: At the moment it is not possible to measure if i was in love.

Anyway, this girl told me what music she likes, it was — oh! — Autechre and Aphex Twin. “Not that again!…. for sure also Kruder and Dorfmeister”, i thought without any ulterior motive and i didn’t say: “Yoo, me old buddy Aphex Twin, i call him my dawg!” However i said something like: “I also make electric music with my friend Drax and Mr Aphex Twin could even be called my boss coz it’s his record label on which we released a great record and are going to release even better records.” So much i would have liked to impress her.

When i played the record to her later she said a bit disappointed: “You make more somthing like dance music, no?” — “No, not exclusively!” i said quickly. But it was too late. She even found “all girls move them body” really disgusting. So the impressing backfired. What up, this crank we already had in the 70s! Responsible people said “Disco sucks”, if you valued yourself you despised rhythm and walked around seriously and thoughtfully.

I believe i was also intellectual in former times, but it was no fun. And the intelligent make as much stress and destroy the world with the same drive as the stupid, so why all the effort with education and aesthete, i ask myself sometimes.

And the moral of the story: Boomshakalak, me knows what i likes, it’s ragga music all day long!

DRX: A PROFILE

Drx is in Bodenstanding 2000 and one of my best friends that I never see.


Here he is ‘back in the day’ cooking baked beans and shortly to drink Baileys in my old flat on Balmore Street.

TITUS COVER BY Drx
One of the greatest micromusic.net hits of all time by my friend drx.

From the old lektrogirl.com website:
“our friendship started with me writing him some fan mail and then he wrote me back and then we just kept on writing. our friendship really developed after hours of online chat in micromusic – where we discuss such topics and daisy dee and the C.I.O. / scooter / eurodance / bobby “o” vs. frank farian / 101 things to do with hummous / all my boyfriend dramas / latest records to our collection and who will burn who at our next dj battle. sounds scintillating doesnt it?

drx is not only one half of the incredible band BODENSTANDIG 2000 [with bioBern] but an accomplished computer nerd and world renowned ‘talking dj’. [in fact drx is my second dj pupil] also drx is a VITAL member to have as part of the team if ever on tour djing around germany. i am so greatful he was with us when mollywood and i were doing the girl riot tour. mollywood took too many outfits and too much make up and couldn’t carry everything AND her record box so poor drx ended up carrying mollywood’s clothes along with all his own gear [he looked like one of the dwarves out of the louis vuitton ad.] drx got the last laugh though when we fell asleep on the train and he captuured us with his gameboy camera dribbling onto our shoulder from berlin to hamburg.”

LUCKY MAIL DAY

I’ve been off work for a week and there are another two weeks to go. What is better to brighten then dark days than some BANGING treats that have come in the mail!?

My postman is unfortunately a really strange looking Fanta Pants. A bit like Ian off Shameless, with super red hair and red skin. I opened the door to him the other morning in my PJ’s and witches hair and saw his skin has not improved since I saw him last. He handed me a little box all the way from Germany – Drx and Olia! What could it be?


An F… Dog of course! What exactly the F… could possibly mean I don’t know. But this is the best USB stick I have been given in my life. [To be fair, it is the only one.] Sadly, there is no loop for a lanyard which is the only fault to find with this product but I shall be so happy to carry him in my Marc Jacobs zip purse in my Marni bag and let him out for a run whenever I need to transfer information.

I’m a little bit horrified by my nails in that picture – but this is all because the grouting is finished.


I just put up all the mosaic tiles. I’m not responsible for the big ones. I have also cleaned the walls about 1000 times to get rid of all the excess grout. That shit gets everywhere.

What I wore clubbing in the 90’s to Rephlex Raves with Nike ACG trainers, camo army surplus jackets, a fluorescent pink Speedo swimming costume, combat trousers and neon eye shadow has become a home decorators stable fashion garment. These tracky-daks were from Primark on Kilburn High Road when there were still IRA bomb stores getting discovered there. The Verve were my next door neighbours and Brian Eno lived a few doors down. Sometimes we’d see Bono popping in to his studio for a visit.

So back to my mail box:

The long awaited 7″ from Mash Gordon released on Les Armees des BonBons – another present from The Fatherland. I was super happy to receive this. I have heard that the guys are recording a new album this year in their Dresden studio. So cool. In summer maybe I will go visit them. I remember when I visited in winter last time – I had my headlights on 24/7. And I don’t mean on a car.

I was also happy to see that Sish-Tick has done the cover for the record. I first saw the work of Sish-Tick when first met Mash Gordon.


Why is it always have such babe hair in photos but in real life it looks like the tail end of a witches broomstick?

And finally BIG UPS TO PAUL GORMAN with his book The Look which documents British Fashion and it’s life with music from all the way back from the 50’s to today. His book has made it to the top 10 books on British Fashion in the Independant.

The Look Blog is also always and interesting read!

P.S. Watched the Real Life FBI files last night about a serial murderer and rapist. Could help but think of this anti rape condom Covvo sent me the link for.

Oh and how great am I? I blogged about the Australian dude below with the sunglasses that are “too famous” who wrecked his neighbourhood before it was even on the Channel 4 news.

Oh wow and then you get to work and there is an email from my good friend Drx and he never fails to cheer me up!

Owner of a lonely heart



I saw XXCENSOREDXX up close the other day for the first time in ages. Everyone else must have hogged the ugly pills when he was born. XXCENSOREDXX also has very nice manners. But then I guess that is cause he is British. Who knows what he said as he walked off – I couldn’t resist making a few obnoxious jokes. I suspect he though I was a dickhead.

Anyway – Speaking of love and other matters of the heart – I received a website link from my friend Drx this morning. [Drx is the one without the ponytail in Bodenstandig 2000] You have to check this link out. http://cosmic-people.com TOTALLY SPIRITUAL. And great images.
