Extinction Ahead?! Mankinds crucial next steps


Hello? Is anyone out there actually realizing what is going on? It might very well be that we are just inches away from a global catastrophe which could wipe us of the earths crust. With the latest developments in Fukushima it becomes clear that we created quite a few monsters we are not able to handle any more, and I´m not just talking about atomic energy. We should have already learned that from Chernobyl and Three Mile Island.

The monsters I´m even more afraid of are the societies we have created. It truly is a brave new world, where no one seems to care what is happening outside of their own interests, and even those interests are  in most cases not even  your own but carefully handed to you over the course of years. Aldous Huxley  was right when he spoke  of the truth being drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Just look around you…  Those systems designed by men to serve us all and protect us from lunatics are only serving their own interests and are ran by lunatics themself. Democracy my ass, it is merely a word –  what if I told you it is not what you take it for?

In most cases it needs major catastrophes for mankind to learn about its mistakes but I´m afraid that this is something we can not afford at this point. We are not only ending our own existence but almost all life on this planet. To quote Paul Stamets: “Imagine there would be a vote of all living organisms on this planet to determine whether we should be on or off the earth. What would you imagine the outcome to be like?” We do not only have to adjust we need a paradigm shift. Stop thinking in terms of countries, politics, armies and so on. Those things only exist because everyone is allowing them to exist and they are failing in every possible way right now. Again –  just look!  Not saying they didn´t have a purpose at one point in time, we have come a long way, but time is running out right now! The idea of anarchy always seems radical to people and the image attached to it is that of some lazy teenagers begging for coins but I could see a world without artificial authorities where everyone contributes to society in a way he is cut out for.

After all we are still a part of nature and therefore already equipped with everything to live a life full of meaning and purpose and we don´t have to go back to caves in order to do so. It is not the accomplishments  mankind came up with that got us separated from nature but the way we intend to use them

So please do something. If this upsets you – be upset! Speak about it. Contribute in every possible way to make this a world worth living in – for us and for future generations to come. Change always happens from within – I know there are many weary people out there but it has to hit some point of critical mass to really make a difference. Don´t just let yourself drown in this Sea of Irrelevance, there is plenty of time left to enjoy GTA  and so on once we face and solve the real dangers of our time.

Here is a great find via reddit – The Declaration of Evolution – Timothy Leary , and while it has some years on its back it is as actual as it ever was

I know this is a music blog and I´m sorry if this has disturbed you in any way. It is just that this is as pressing as it gets and when we fuck up this time there is no more music to enjoy, no more parties to go and also no world left for our children…

Character: free music (nothing new, just true)

Main Flow “Understand”. Great Hip Hop tune, from Main Flow, a name i only remember from the dark ages of record stores, lol. I really dig this soulful little gem they have dropped not too long ago. Seems that they/he (?) have understood the times as well since they offer their new album as a free download (dwnld  Return Of The Castle right here) and also started giving away their music for free, just like everyone else that has caught on these days. Its actually 4-5 years late to start doing that now, and it should be common sense if you are an underground act and want to get noticed, but it seems to be still surprising to people, when they talk about free music and (for example) kanye west and how he is releasing a new free song every friday. well, me think, it should be normal. I am all up for selling music and giving it away for free at the same time, what this causes, is actually a psychological factor. You will only get people to buy your music that really want to buy your music, and maybe only one song that they like from that artist instead of the whole album, not like it used to be in the 90ies, when people were more or less forced to buy full cds and its was a huge business with a structurized ponzi scheme behind it. After all it should be considered art first, and when you take it as such and consider that technology fundamentally changed the way younger (and older) generations listen to music it simply defies any logic that you want to sell them outdated and actually useless crap (cds). Its reminiscent of the auto industry and everything else that simply didnt stand the test of time. A fight for survival for these industries, and industries do not equal people. It might equal jobs at a certain point, but when a job becomes useless like a carriage driver, well you have either to become a cab driver or do something else. So that argument is not valid on so many levels. And hierarchical structures like any industry has, always fight for the survival of the pyramids top first. So what it really is is a struggle to keep the money going into the already fat pockets of the big executives and not saving jobs. The human plead is always undertaken by the most dis-humane of all (a quote i think from Gandhi or Mother Theresa, keep that one in mind in every argument). A dishonest argument always leads to more mistrust. So how can you trust someone who is manipulatively screwing with you? You can’t – and its against every logical idea planted in man to do so. And one more point before i let you hear the song: How do you explain a 10 y old to pay for a song when he is listening to it on his cell phone and it came out of thin air?

It simply doesn’t make any sense.

Enjoy the tune.  Main Flow “Understand”


another free tune: Kanye West ft Common, Charlie Wilson, Kid Cudi “Good Friday”


Ps when you want to sell music, do it via a cool service like bandcamp and not itunes.

Character – music and me … a word about why i love playing music

i had one of the worst dj nights ever yesterday… (exaggerating)

i was playing with a nice guy.. his sound wouldnt just fit in. but i wasnt there to just cut him off and do my normal arrogant approach of just taking the eff over – and even though the sound was nothing the party promised it to be, i guess at times you cant just take fucking control over everything and have nothing better to offer – i am just not cut out for playing 4/4 or any other sound for hours and hours.
i want it to change constantly and be alive – cause thats what music is – its empowering, gives you a great feeling, is mentally and spiritually uplifting. it strikes a chord in your soul and lets you fuel your motor with positive energy. (ps i am not touching that other shit)

yesterday, it simply didnt feel like i belonged there – I dont like – and i repeat – i dont like to play an hour of the same monotoneous tempo – i am hell tired of 4 to the floor tunes after 30 min, or any other style.
i like to play fucking good music and i like to play all styles all the time and simulataneously – cant have that rubbish going on for too long – i need a hip hop beat backed by some rock tune, backed by some dubstep, some folk music – yeah some surfer shit, followed by some reggae by some disco, some uk funky and so forth. You guys know me and you heard my mixtapes, and everywhere i go it seems the mixtapes have allready been there.

i do not diversify by genres or styles, by undergound or pop. these are just mental labels to help someone determine who he or she thinks he is. That is so childish and its doing exactly the opposite. Wake the fuck up!

i laugh at people who eat the same shit every day – but this is in no sense any better.

the true essense of YUM YUM and why i play is to play good music (bring you the heavens and the sunshine)
….and not to please some cultural rubbish, some diluted mind needs as fuel for his/her self esteem. so screw all of that and let me make the first step by playing you what kind of song fits right into what i am saying:
