critique, theory, contemporary electronic music culture and personal diaries


I wanted to start a personal tumblr concerning contemporary art, critical theory and electronic urban culture since sometime now. Many of you perhaps wonder who I am, why Im writing this message, why I ve been trying to communicate with you, what is my life’s purpose?Well my answer is that Im not special, not even consider myself sophisticated, many of my friends think that I am a miserable counter-revolutionary, others just a party animal and hedonist. well fuck it … I am just a writer who sometimes djing, blogging, taking photos, who some other times pretends to be a lover, a radical, an addict of good sounds and so on, perhaps just like you. A traveller, a lover, a dreamer absolutely like you who ever you re, where ever you come from. I am also associated with the name fancypunk of the shituationist instutute and you can mostly find me in the techno clubs of Berlin and other european countries or just walking somewhere in the center of Athens, drinking a beer.

Thessaloniki  Pride held for one more year successfully. Many of our friends in the city seem to be impressed from event itself, because every years is getting bigger and bigger. Good vibes, electronic music sounds and stylish people on the streets  I am publishing few of the brilliant pictures as well as a brief report we have received today by one of our Thessaloniki friends.

Taking into account the increased vote in favour of the Golden Dawn Nazis as well as the overall extreme-right shift in Greece, the mere election of a progressive mayor in Thessaloniki, could not guarantee a successful Pride. Fortunately, this was not the case and millions of LGBT people crowded the streets of the city, offering a spirited reply to mainstream society and its fascist, racist and homophobic majority.

The internationalist solidarity between gay and transgender people across the Balkans, the radical content of the speeches offered as well as the most anticipated parade of the sexual and gender diversities suppressed in Greece by phobic attitudes, fascist attacks, governmental policies and the police brutality, offered a major political event for public expression and human rights demonstration. Among the several events organized prior or during the Thessaloniki Pride, we should especially mention the pink triangular memorial wreath offered in front of the Jewish Holocaust Memorial.

Athens Pride 2014 – 10 years Athens Pride : June 14, Klafthmonos Square

pride2014poster

pride2014posterI still have a weak memory of the first Athens Pride 10 years ago. It was just a little while before I started packing my stuff for a trip in Belgrade totally drunk. That time I was still living in Athens, having many discussions about lgbtq rights in Greece with my friends who by coincidence were involved with gender and lgbtq rights groups. 10 years ago the Pride was an event of a handful of…
