Dave the Chimp's Lucky Dip

The Buy Nothing Day is over. So let's start thinking about how we can get p.c. Christmas presents. Totally political correct is to gamble, get a one off piece of art and support an emerging artist. Just take part of Dave The Chimp's game "Lucky Dip". This is an excerpt of his descripition:

"Roll up! Roll up! It's time for Chimp's Lucky Dip! Everyone's a winner! (...) A beautiful, one-off, hand crafted "Human Bein" painting is the prize for everyone who takes part. It's a gamble, but not much risk, as each of these paintings is great. The risk element, and the trust, comes from the fact that the only way to get one of these is to mail me 20 euros cash! Are you willing to put your trust in the Postal Service, and put your hard earned cash into the hands of a stranger...?"

If yes is your answer, go to the Chimp's website for more information.

MGMT live in Berlin Kesselhaus

video
My phone-computer connection works again. I feel so "wowed" to be able to show this film. It's like so "amazing", you know. Seriously, the film might be crap but the gig was great. But who is that girl talking in that film? And what the hell is she saying?

Buy Nothing Day 2008


What about if we all buy nothing on Saturday, November 29th? (All North Americans buy nothing on November 28th) Instead we walk as Zombies through shopping malls or offer to cut up credit cards. The Buy Nothing Day is an initiative by Adbusters.

Tonight I Bang Bang The Virgins and become a Rich Girl


The Virgins from NYC played their first Berlin gig ever at Bang Bang club tonight. And if my N82 phone and my powerbook wouldn't have broken up two weeks ago, I could post now my cell phone film from this cosy gig. I will talk to my phone and beg it to continue bluetoothing with my Mac. It sucks not being able to post my own shots anymore. And by the way I just ordered a USB cable. I just force their connection in the future. Ps. that video is not the official one. The official one is tooo bad to post. P.P.S. They will be back in March.

BBC three came up with a good little film, showing how ridiculous we would look, if our actions on Facebook would take part in real life.
