等我有空會寫一段關於台灣樂團和社會運動的文章( and then you can decided if this is political)

animal rights can be cool too!

只要是夠大的組織,就必須要學會和主流社會觀點結合。舉例來說美國人道對待動物組織,不只在宣揚素食主義,也在贊頌一種主流物化女性意識,廣告中女優做出大量的裸露,呈現出一種對女性”完美”體態的贊揚,其中再置入行銷素食主義,兩相輔的結果在教化女性去認同其性別在主流社會中的位置,和一個新創作的主流素食主義。

只是最終要傳達的訊息,是不是被聳動的廣告看版給消減了。過去我在上行銷課的時候,常常強調,產品本身不是主角,你需要販售的是一種感覺,一種情感上的需求。就像穿上LV的東西並不會讓你更閃閃動人,而是那個穿上LV那個充滿自信的你的神態,和那個由它人認同你的社會位置重塑的過程。這也是一種尋求歸屬感的意圖,即使這種歸屬可能只是淺面的物質、社會地位上的認同。但是不管怎樣,在表面上你看起來似乎就是有那麼一群的。若是你還為情傷神的話,或許這會讓你更上道。

終究所謂的社會運動要到達一個最大的效用,還是得忘記過去的一切,模糊事件的重點,朝向一個更營合大眾的口味,只是不知道在這樣的妥協上,是大眾成功的推銷了主流意識進入運動主體內,還是運動以巧妙的手段滲入主流意識中?

white pride/killers

I cant believe such things exist in this crazy world.

The racist “anarchist” have 2008 asia tour, so they can go all the asia countries and kill all the lower-class fucking races??? ” Basically its about helping non-whites in their own countries so they don’t need to come to Western/White Nations.”

The exist of these people drives me crazy!!!!!!

Stop poisoning the kid!

agriculture en Taiwan II, Hope market(every second saturday)

(this article wont be objective, all my articles are based on the things that I understand with my own eyes, and this result coming from over night of discussions and what we think/talk about with friends. And one more thing, none of us have lived a farmer’s life, so we may be illusional)

The name of the Market is called Hope Market in english, just like former articles said it was formed in Sep 2006, consist of environmentalist, community organizer, and those who concerns of agriculture’s predicament. With this market, they gathered a couple of farmers, educationalist, people who cares about the land, and fair trade promoter, mainly the farmers we talked are small farmer. (couple days ago I remember seeing them promoting the “small is beautiful” idea on their website.) This market suppose to be like a co-op gathering, but it has not like those you see in western places, later I will describe the atmosphere for a bit. There are 3 elements within this market, first, they believe a better life consist of all people have the same purpose to work together, desire for a natural life, so they must learn/cooperate with each other. Second, to learn from the producer(farmer), and the producer to learn from the land/nature. Third, this market tends to bring the people together, with the producer and the consumers, a center for people to meet together. All three elements I think meet the general idea of a pro nature life ideology. And well to achieve a better life, the market bring in some concrete ideas, that’s why they have this market every month to bring people together, while they have lectures to improve the idea of eating the local food/in season produce. Also they have lecture to promote the “organic cultivation”, but this lecture is for the consumer/general public to experience the producer’s hard work.(very typically thing we do in Taiwan).

Agriculture en Taiwan

I have only a couple mins left before I start to prepare for me leaving to Tian Mu for another night of sticker bombing. I guess this probably to be very pointless for some of you, but to me, culture interruption is a very important tactic as part of my actions, it is a 2 second of mind storm, whatever you like it or not, believe it or not, it does attract some people’s eye and hence, where the seed plants, when someday the rebel comes, they will remember somewhere in their life there were beginnings they refused to see.

This article is base on the report of my visit to Thaizhong the past 2 days, friday night a friend and i met up, we discussed about the filming on Saturday morning of the Farm market, and late around 2am we hit the road of Thaizong, sticker bombing, i had wanted to do it for a long time and only had one chance to did it for about 5 stickers. The following pic is the dawn of  the stree of a big nightmarket of Thaizong, dont you think it is too crowded for a telegraph pole? 4 CCTV seems to be normal in London, but in Taiwan, this has to be new, but later on we saw 6 CCTV sets, so this consider to be left out of the TOP security area.

We didnt sleep the whole night, so obviously its a bad idea, that both of us seem to be very “slow thinking” and dumb the next morning, no fucking brilliant question was asked, and instant reaction seems to be out of the track with this freaking over nights exhaustion. Whatever, I hope you will bare with me with this nonsense post, it’s just the beginning anyway, I start my taiwan agriculture research now, and should be last for another 2 weeks, so i can make up a short film of a big picture of it, or maybe not so details and everything, but it should be a beginning of something.

Around 8am, we went back to my friend’s friends house to get our stuff and ready to hit the road again to the farm market, I didn’t have much time to read thro everything about this market, the past week had been busy doing another research for the cleaner in Shushin university, (check back for a later report of it) but thanks to the friend who had did much reading to help out this filming to be possible, basically we came up with a few thing that we want to ask. But maybe draw a vague picture of this market first, the market is formed by a bunch of people consist of environmentalist, community organizers and people who concerned of the agriculture issues in taiwan. They started in Oct of 2006,

(i have to start to prepare, so to be continued

To arrive the place, you need a car, most likely, that’s the answer we get from the people who lives in thaizong, it seems like everybody in Thaizhong rather have a car or they have motor bike. We dont have anything but 2 legs, and if it is a farming market consist of environmental issues and grassroots point of view, we will be able to get there with public transfer system and with our own 2 legs. The bus took us to a nearly by bus station, and 20 mins of walking.

ladies, ladies!!
