Ode an mein Schland

P1390655_2

 

O du zaubrisches Schland!
Wie im Mittelfelde du
so schlangengleich blendest!
Wie im Strafraume auch
Du gar so fintenreich
schlanderst und schländest!
Du!

 

Du aller Schländer Schlandste!
Du Schlandste aller Schländer!
Auch meinen Ständer schlände!
Komm – gleich hier im Gelände!
Oder doch lieber da am Geländer?
Du!

 

Nie wird reichen je an dich,
nie wird gleichen dir jemals
ein ander Land –
kein Flandern ist, kein Brabant
so schlandhaft verschländelt wie
Du!

Bist mir teurer als Gold! und aller Welt
Flaschenpfand! Du mein Schland!

New feature: MyWebsite

personal_website

.

Dear Members,
we are proud to offer you a brand new feature on ARTDOXA:

.

MyWebsite is your personal website that allows you to present your artwork from ARTDOXA – but  without  the  community functions. ARTDOXA has always been a place that encourages you to share and discuss your art – even the weirdest things and the most vague ideas are welcome – and that’s exactly the way we want it. On a ‘normal website’, things might be different, maybe you would just show a selection of your work. Well, that’s what MyWebsite is here for now. Just select the catalogs you wish to be shown, and that’s it.  This way you do not need to maintain an extra website. Test it one month FOR FREE –  MyWebsite is ready when you are.

.

You get a website in perfectly pure and clean style – and it even works on all kinds of mobile devices. The address is yourname.artdoxa.com, but, of course, you can also just redirect from your individual web address to MyWebsite.

.

ARTDOXA has been a free service since 2007, and it will stay like that. But: Not only did we invest countless days, months and years of our lives into this precious project, but also a lot of money. So if you like MyWebsite, you can subscribe for € 7 per month.

.

This helps us to keep our platform ad-free and independent. Subscribing is very welcomed to cover  at least some  of the  server costs and development – even if you do not use MyWebsite. But who would not use something as beautiful as this?

.

All the best,
your ARTDOXA team

.

Speed Prose #2

”Always omit the blemishes. They’re not part of the good picture you want.”

– Andy Warhol

p1380924_2

Save the dream beings, find a reason for life & establish a set of beliefs… erase deadly language… sometimes humanoid, sometimes alien… backing up secret electronic brain & a hungry brain is such reason… life as neoliberal dualistic exercise is no life… brain sense verify & close the Four & your opposition repeatedly see sense in worldwide containment of mutant brain disease… make no mistake! Don’t mix up reason & awareness! Lower brain activities threshold… lifelong controls… the end is at hand… the Four may have all of it; the Four may have none of it… so the humanoids keep worrying & worrying…

footsteps

on the beach 

court of below 

fake reasons corrode

 

a felon the chief

of this vicious island

brain tubes protrude &  

envy my parroting  puppet

 

shells

& shadows 

gunning first roses

abandon by blackish remote

dimmer flackern, ende –

& brägen glitzersteine

m/angst & müll glasiert

rest strahl & abgebrannt:

roll im strom – alkaloid!

halogene mondlaterne

leck-leck herab

plipp-plopp auf

glimmer glamour wüste –

keine nacht für’s kalte auge!

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in a broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming – “Wow! What a ride!”

– Hunter S. Thompson

XXI. For Ernest Hemingway

I found the brandy bottle

tried to listen to the dark

it had called on me

& echoes were too loud

we each took a few

maybe two diving

& two in the bottle

& a vast glow spread over

death I had sneered at 

aboard in my own element 

peace had died on me 

& I hoped nobody knew
