 Long days, even longer nights. It's been a great Copenhagen fall.

Brick wallride

Wallride, Heleneholm/Sollentuna, Stockholm (r.i.p.). Riktigt skrovlig och go mur det där! Bakom den, långt ner till motorvägen därunder.

10 year Savanna R.I.P. / Steppe aside anniversary

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. 
   The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

/ H P Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu

A decade has passed, since Savanna Side went into the past. A decade of decadence and fragmentation, in urethanic Malmö and in our world at large.

The usual harvest of toxic black worms and white maggots of rotting flesh, coming forth from a regular beating of the piñata head of skateboarding, is nothing next to the stench of human excrement that render Step-it-up-side (Serengeti) unskateable since this summer, with a neighboring skid row tent/caravan city filtering the sewers of society through the thick rugged weeds of the Steppen lot. It is crowded on the bottom floor of this flooded pyramid of power.

"Papegojan Alex var hans favorit i Klassiska filmer om djurens beteende. Han gillade avsnittet när Alex blev trött på övningen med blå trianglar och gula fyrkanter och sa: "Nu sticker jag." "Nej, Alex, du kommer tillbaka hit. Var är den blå triangeln - nej, den blå triangeln?" Men Alex hade försvunnit ut genom dörren. Hurra för Alex."
/ur Oryx och Crake, Margaret Atwood

“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest."  
- Richard Buckminster Fuller

"Det som händer när man blir fattig är att man drar sig undan, blir osocial. Det är inte särskilt konstigt, eftersom det mesta i samhället kostar pengar. Problemet i dag är att ett sådant beteende kan klassas som en sjukdom. Något som kräver medicinering."

alive and aware

Text-files pile up along the walls in an uninhabitable room of ideas afloat.
Joining Kos in his true element for a day of skating, some fragments wash ashore. Copy+pastes from Twitter feed (all props to originators):
* I am capitalism and I have no substance, no morality, I simply generate and regenerate the false dream of prosperity, the myth of success.
* I am capitalism and in my society anyone who is content with being alive and aware is considered an unambitous loser.
* I am capitalism and in my society, creative people who like to express themselves in non-economically productive terms are labeled lazy.

* I am capitalism and I give you night clubs, I give you bars, I give you alcoholic dreams, I give you media generated false realities.
* Speculators: those who speculate on our lives as if it's a game, then when they fuck up, our governments rush in to bail them out.
* I am capitalism and you must revolt against me otherwise I will penetrate every aspect of your being.

* I am capitalism and I have you all locked up in prisons of personal comforts.
