matrixmann: (Thinking)
When an icon of one's suicidal youth commits suicide himself, then it's indeed an irony that life offers there.
But, thinking about it, what's it with a hero, where does this status end and where does he start to be only a human being again? With own problems, desires, flaws and personal weaknesses?
It's actually so very simple. So simple that one forgets about it when he looks up to someone.
Every hero that is like an icon to those with demons plaguing them inside, most often he fights some demons inside himself. Even when it's long past having your biggest battle with them, the fight goes on because, once developed, these demons never let you go again. Until the end of your life.
And so... it comes that even a hero might surrender them, although everyone of that kind of human logically knows it is nonsense to do so.
But sometimes you don't know how strong they are, how much a plague they are to the protagonist and how long he already kept fighting them - or how long he already kept running away from them.
It's tough to judge this from the outside - from the outside it's always a pretty easy job to do.
Much tougher it always is when judging it from the inside and taking note of one's abilities and capacities to overcome. How much he/she's caught up in the dependencies of his/her own life. And how much or less there's a way out of it what is plaguing someone.
In that point, even a hero is just a human...
And those things may press him to the wall until he's "about to break".

The hypocrisy of the rockers - bragging to create something of great importance and pretending this to the audience, but in fact it's the same every time they bring out a new album or go on tour. The same phrases, the same talking... Lyrics stay the same, music style stays the same - little variation.
Where is the great revolution you talk about? Seems like more trivial than there really is.
You produce the same kind of junkfood sound for the masses like all other empty hip popstars. You try to sell it as something else, but who listens carefully recognizes that it's always nearly the same like before. Not really much different than the rest of the commercialized circus...

Warum müssen so viele "only ones" besungen werden?

Why are there so many "only ones" to be sung about?

Is there a different way to win a war than sending troops and artillery?
There is: Do it the subtle way. Destroy the infrastructure, by selling and privatizing, to let your opponent pay off debts that actually don't exist. Erase the ability to do self-catering with home-grown food, introduce the dependence on imports. Carry technology and patents out of the country. If human intelligentsia can't be lured away, make sure they can't make any profit out of their knowledge anymore - forbid them to work in their disciplines, declare graduations and diplomas to be invalid. Abolish law and order and take your sweet time to install yours as the new ones - to let chaos move in, and crime take hold. Additionally, send your own criminals in to fool the masses and to let the daily terror on the streets be perfect. Pump your own wares and goods into the newly acquired territory - to calm down the conquered masses and to make profit yourself; best even is if you let it be accompanied by advertising and propaganda how good it is, how grateful people can be to have it, meanwhile you can do the dirty work to strip them off their assets. While being at the assets: Rearrange the overall property situation. If the pattern makes sense or not, it doesn't matter - the confusion and the gain for your own fraction is the main objective.
At the end of it all, most importantly: Break the morale, the mindset of the people that you annex. Deconstruct the education system and build it anew. Let culture disappear to be never seen again. Kill the spirit of what made these people up! Make sure that way that you're going to be happy with your annexion for the coming decades - 'cause the resistance fades away with the people aging.

"Fuck your celebrating of the 80s and Neue Deutsche Welle over and over again - as one of the most decadent decades that one has seen recently! One day you gonna do it with this decade too because remembering one of any of the others would make people discover intelligence and education again!"
matrixmann: (Thinking)
What would somebody say who died 10 years ago about the fuss that takes place today?
In politics as well as society as well as technology - how things in general developed during the last decade?
Would he think "the better that I have died, that's even worse than when I was still alive"?
Or would he say "I should have stayed, just to try to make a change in all these things"?
What about somebody who killed himself?
Would he be happy about his deed?
Would he scream in horror how the world has become, compared to 10 years ago?
What would his words be about Facebook, about streaming, about the current state the world is in - the economical crisis, the West's fight with Russia, the war in Syria, Libya, newly grown information sources that didn't exist back then?
Also, what would he say about culture, about current trends? About the rise of German Schlager, the dropping in the background of Hiphop, the rise of softened Electro House and the current remake mania in Hollywood?
What would he say if he heard that now it's a trend for the lost youth to travel to the Middle East and play "Call Of Duty" for real - voluntarily?

Sometimes it would be better if someone was alive again who didn't follow all these developments, just to give you a more distanced opinion, free from the political correctness of today, free from the frames and shapes which society and public likes to think in during current times.
Having been gone opens a door to potentially give you new ideas. Ideas you wouldn't have if you talked to somebody who's a child of his time and narrow-minded as the current episode is.
Too long ago may become a problem as the changes over 20 and 30 years or more are too huge for someone to comprehend in a small amount of time. There would be the danger of becoming overwhelmed by impressions.
Many things changed in a longer episode of time.

But even during the last 10 years, you have some things which totally took a major development, while you have others where you would say "business as usual". Nothing has changed.
The stupification of mankind hasn't stopped, quite the opposite, it has increased. Through the invention of smartphones and social media shifting from a text-based to a photo- and video-based issue. Bullying and mobbing hasn't vanished from the face of the earth, its results only have become quieter and no-one talks about it anymore loudly. Children themselves don't take a gun into their hands anymore nessecarily to make it known.
Adults don't have more time for their offspring, they even whip themselves some more and force themselves onto their place of work.
Poverty didn't disappear. And the rich have even grown richer than they used to be.
The only thing that maybe has become different, making an interesting change in the pack of cards, that keeping secrets has become more critical for the states. Not only is it more of an importance for them to survive than before, but also the means to do it need to scatter because it is more likely that somebody might get something out and show it to the public. Not all people entrusted with confidential information still agree on or are convinced of keeping their secrets anymore.
Also, there has grown an echo chamber which specialized in picking these things up and spread it as their own propaganda, just like you're used to it from the notorious usual suspects.
This changes the game of what to believe and what not to believe.

Someone who died earlier and was sick of this system might find its joy with the new circumstances...

These days' youth gets the music it deserves. Uninspired, overly happy twenty-four seven, acting like the world's only a party, thinking there are no obstacles to come in the future - that's something only the rotten meat generation over thirty talks about -, and it's as lame to make you fall asleep - speed is an alien concept to it. While the musicians still manage to come up with a catchy tune, as much as that they're free from talent to deliver ambitious lyrics and an ordinary rhyme. So in the end, what they leave behind is an exceedingly kitschy tune with no message, nothing to dream about and nothing more of than what seems to be one of the negative kinds of ecstasy: The world is colored in rose, all is sunshine and happiness forever and for always, darkness is something that doesn't exist, not even in sound and it better shouldn't. Darkness is a cancer that should be erased ("it fucks up the good mood").

In that point, this youth gets the soundtrack that it deserves and where it's going to end at, one will see.

As a pick-up of this: https://matrixmann.dreamwidth.org/28590.html

People talk a lot about their alleged individuality, but when you go through the interests displayed by their social media profiles - and there cannot be made the suspicion they only enter it for distracting other people from guessing their could be something important to get from them -, you come across the same kind of contents over and over again. Privately in real life, it's barely different.
During these years, movies are not the big players in the game, music had been so for a longer amount of time and is no more - due to the various possibilities to go for what they call "your thing" -, literature is something that still passes some people, so TV series are the bigger craze; that's also due to cinema being repetitive and bringing up no new ideas during this episode, doing remakes of everything and nothing they ever created in Hollywood.
And what is the case? Everywhere you go, each country which you come across, people seem to name the same things over and over again as the things they like and the things they are interested in. Nothing against quality, but these days you cannot spare but regarding all of that under some kind of forced political agenda. Eventually - why is everyone excited about content exceptionally mostly produced in the US?
Why do people eat each and every shit of a TV series coming from America?
The biggest gimmicks these days are turning 12 Monkeys into a TV series and the Scream movies! Like they haven't been good enough as they were made!
And people even get excited about content that newly filmed shit! Like they didn't know what originally was supposed to happen!
Why do people worldwide know nothing more than to watch Game Of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead, Dexter, Hannibal, Person Of Interest, The Blacklist, Black Sails, Sons Of Anarchy, Breaking Bad - a few years earlier: Teen Wolf, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Glee, CSI: Miami (and its offsprings from other cities), Navy CIS, Hannah Montana, Taken; even earlier: Emergency Room, Grey's Anatomy, Scrubs, Dr. House, Lost, Desperate Housewifes, Sex And The City, King Of Queens, Gilmore Girls - Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Buffy and so on?!
Are people that stupid or easy to impress that American filming industry always finds an easy way to push their buttons?!
The type of that people which watched all this shit as it was current are those kind to have a habit to tell all tell all Manga / Anime freaks that it's all the same which they consume as an entertainment - that they consume anything that comes from Japan in comics, cartoon movies and video games -, but they themselves are none of the better, only with a different focus of attention!!
Brainwashed and Americanized!
And by that kind of people you wanna be taught a lesson about "being individual" and thinking yourself?
They are as individual as a stencil! They can think from the West side to the East side of the road!
They don't even take notice how much they are like their neighbor!
At the latest since Ikea has become the main sponsor of furniture for lots of apartments, they don't even notice how much even their living room looks like the one of the neighbor!
And those rave the most about being individual, being special and being one in a million that needs to be cried for when they die!
You know what? If you wanna get an opinion about mankind, just fucking look at this targeted remote control and see for yourself!
All fucking caged full purses imagening they're someone and they live in wide open lands.

Plätscher, plätscher
tropf, tropf
Ich habe keine Aussage
und ich kenne keinen Reim
Ich will auf den Gletscher,
doch habe nichts im Kopf
Wenn ich zu texten wage,
erbricht sich der Urschleim.
Nicht wie ein Metzger,
sondern wie ein Kropf,
mein Text ist wie die Tage -
Inhalt finden - nein.

Ich texte wie ich spreche
und wie ich spreche ist Quahl.
Prägnantes findet man selten,
Kunst ist verkommen zur heißen Ware.
Egal wie viel sie auch blechen,
sie bekommen keinen gehärteten Stahl,
und die wenigen, die mich schelten,
die kommen auf die Bahre.
Und dann prelle ich noch die Zeche,
jeden Tag dasselbe Mahl.
Lassen sie's noch lange gelten,
oh wie schön hab' ich die Haare!

Kunst kommt von Können
und bedarf der regelmäßigen Übung,
alle, die etwas anderes erzählen,
wollen dich nur als Sklaven.
Willst du dir selbst etwas gönnen,
schrei nicht "Schiebung!",
lerne Worte zu wählen,
und gehöre nicht zu den Braven.
Schreibe nicht, was andere ersönnen,
erkenne auch die Biegung,
versuche dich auch nicht zu vermählen
mit den Beschlüssen von Konklaven.

Neue Reime braucht das Land,
seine Schreiber sind ein Graus,
inhaltsleere Worte,
dazu noch ohne Plan.
Wie Graffiti-Sprüher an die Wand,
so klingt das aus ihnen heraus,
wie Massensporte,
ohne wirklichen Elan.
Sie hätten es in der Hand,
doch sie machen nichts daraus,
da reimt sich schon mal "Torte"
genau auf "Massenwahn".

It't just a shame, if you have to turn your back on your asserted political direction, or your asserted subculture, just because those people that are in it are so stubborn, narrow-minded and willing to perceive anything that makes you, in their eyes, be no-one that belongs to their roundel.

matrixmann: (Yuber Suikoden I)
Deutsche Kultur - welche deutsche Kultur? Etwa die amerikanischen Fernsehserien, die du dir ansiehst?
Die amerikanische Musik, die du dir anhörst? Oder die amerikanischen Markenprodukte, die du konsumierst?
Schreist "Rettung der deutschen Kultur" und regst dich nicht einmal über die letzte Rechtschreibreform auf. Oder dass außer Krimis und Telenovelas nichts ursprünglich deutsches mehr im Fernsehen läuft.
Kennst wahrscheinlich nicht einmal die letzten zwei Bundespräsidenten vor dem aktuellen Amtsinhaber.
Wenn jemand das Wort "Schiller" erwähnt, dann winkst du ab und liest doch lieber deine Mangas.
Statt dich bei deinem lokalen Radiosender zu beschweren, dass außer deutschem Schlager keine deutschsprachige Musik gespielt wird, schwenkst du lieber deine Fahne und erzählst von großem Partriotismus und wie sehr du Deutschland liebst. Beschwörst große Formeln und Zaubersprüche wie wichtig es dir ist, und letztes Jahr war es das noch nicht. Wenn dein Land dich zum Kriegsdienst rufen würde, würdest du dich noch als erster im Keller verstecken.
Weißt du wie man das nennt? Das ist nicht besser wie die, die ihre Fahne zu einer Fußball-WM entdecken.
Aus dem Alter für solche Spielchen wächst man heraus, spätestens wenn man Anfang zwanzig wird.
Nur für Jugendliche ist es wichtig, zu einer Gruppe dazu zu gehören, dass sie dafür alles tun würden.
Bevor du große Sprüche klopfst, fang an, dich um Dinge zu kümmern, die du ohne das Schwert lösen kannst. Wenn dir das zu langweilig ist, dann war es wohl nichts mit der Wichtigkeit.
Sie war nur ein Filter auf deinem Objektiv.

In the beginning, we just wanted to create art to keep the people entertained and to teach them a lesson about life once in a while. Our actors wore masks and for the names of our play writers, we used pseudonyms, so that no-one on street could recognize them by their looks and recognize them by their names being called out. It was a nessecary protection to all our people involved because the vice squads didn't always like what we displayed. It also was nessecary to ensure that only the message is being heard, only the play gets the regards.
But some time, this all changed. Actors suddenly got up on stage showing their true faces, revealing their names and making sure everyone knew them in town. They were selfish and craved for admiration. They... took great care of that people thought they were above them. Being worth more than all the regular folks.
From then, the writers started to do the same. They tried to be on everyone's lips, entering competition with the actors that stand on the stage.
With the fight for the attention also the fight for the payment arose.
Everyone has thought that only his task is being important for the play.
They started to despise each other.
And by despising, the quality of the performance also decreased.
The message was more silent than ever. More silent than repression, exclusion and every kind of state violence could ever make it. All just by mere competition and sophomoric.
Albeit this point in time seems to mark it, humans, in the East as well as in the West, as well as in the North and as well as in the South, worship the people that climb a stage and see them as a hero, much more than people that actually are heroes. They call their names and cheer whenever they see them, they want devotional objects and autographs and sometimes be with them for a night. Or even worse: Be with them for their entire life.
The actors themselves, as well as all others which show their art on stage, pride themselves on the show that they present, regardless of the content, if they bring something useful to the audience, reckless about the people which make happen that they have anything to present at all.
People, like then, assume they're above it all and not even death is something that could reach them.
They act like they never age and everything forever is going to stay the same.
They engage in admiration and monuments, like they sort of saved the world.
Like our actors, they think they're invincible and everything should just be about adoring them all over the day.

In that case the Gabber / Hardcore scene also always picked up a theme which can be considered as the plain truth: Isn't the whole fuss around consuming and advertising, in media as well as in the real world, also terror?
matrixmann: (Wasteland Ranger)
Lützenkirchen's "3 Tage wach" - didn't hear that for a long time. But maybe that's just a coincidence just as listening by the half-open window to which music a car of youngsters plays outside in the parking lot and discovering it's Alex Christensen's homage to the "Sweetest ass in the world" (Original: Du hast den schönsten Arsch in der Welt).
One wonders where do youngsters get to know this trash... And why other stuff completely seems to pass them by.
Next time they come around the corner with "Nein, Mann!" by Laserkraft 3D.
