We are marooned.
Stuck at airports.
As the earth arround us shifts, breaks, we seem to grow ever smaller. A fina layer of dust accumulates in our bodies. Sometimes it's so difficult to breathe.
All we have taken fror granted slips away. Xtina Aguilera's new song is a raging disappointment.
Now is the time, boys.
THINK WITH YOUR DICK.
There are the legions of unemployed. The jaded. The nouveaux pauvres. Hold them. Grab their asses. Show me yours, I'll show you mine. Bend over, and feel their pain.
Go out into the street. Show them what you got. Rub two sticks together and create fire!

Ever tried making the beautiful out of the damned?
Ain't no money to mention? Use your head. Give head if you have to: Sex it up!
Ain't no sunshine? Spraypaint a big sun on a wall and put up a lemonade stand.
Here in the bottom left corner of Europe am putting up one helluva lemonade stand: an Art Pavilion with painting and film and fun and performers and if someone decides to get frisky in the middle of it all, well I'll just put a price tag on it and call it Art!
The place: Allove Festival
