Wasteland (2001)

De berg en de kuil "En groter is de leegte waar de mens is geweest dan waar hij nooit is geweest. De ruimte tussen de sterren is niet leeg, maar er is geen verschrikkelijker leegte dan een vervallen woning." Miroslav Holub (vertaling Jana Beranova) Dit dubbelportret brengt twee door mensen geschonden plekken samen: de afvalberg van een voormalige steenkoolmijn in de Borinage (België) en de groeve van een voormalige bruinkoolmijn in de regio Keulen - Aken (Duitsland). In De berg kijken we rond bij de vervallen mijn La Marcasse in Waals België. Sinds de teloorgang van de steenkool industrie rond het midden van de 20ste eeuw is de tijd hier stil blijven staan. Overwoekerde afvalbergen bepalen de sfeer van een streek die aan zijn lot is overgelaten. In dit deel van de film ontmoeten we enkele personen die pogen te overleven tussen de littekens van de tijd. De man die de ruïne van La Marcasse heeft opgekocht, tracht zijn droom – een kinderboerderij – te realiseren. Zijn ontheemde buurman doet zijn best om zijn Oost-Europese afkomst en cultuur levend te houden. Een oude buurtgenoot heeft de grootste moeite om de fysieke gevolgen van jaren ondergronds geploeter te boven te komen. De jongeren lijken het minst gebukt te gaan onder het verleden. Voor hen vormt dit verloren land een ideaal crossterrein. In De kuil komen we terecht bij Tagebau Hambach in de Duitse deelstaat Nordrhein-Westfalen. In schril contrast met La Marcasse draait de arbeid hier nog op volle toeren. We zien hoe een machinist van een gigantische baggermachine zijn werk doet in een kilometers groot gat, dat de kern vormt van het landschap. Oeroude aardlagen worden blootgelegd. Bossen, landerijen, dorpen – al het bestaande moet wijken voor de voortschrijdende kuil. In deze ontwrichte omgeving is elke verhouding zoek en biedt de menselijke maat het enige houvast. De aangerichte schade lijkt betrekkelijk. Een nieuwe natuur is al in de maak. Miljoenen aangeplante bomen, recreatiemeren en akkergronden zullen over zestig jaar de sporen van ontginning hebben uitgewist. Alsof dit werk, dit heden er nooit is geweest. Een film over de ongerijmdheid van het bestaan en de vergankelijkheid der dingen. Producent: Leendert Pot en Michel Schöpping voor Geelprodukt Camera: Willem Heshusius Geluid: Karel Evers Festivals en vertoningen 2001 Nederlands Film Festival 2001 Gent 2002 St Flour De film is uitgezonden door de VPRO.

Hillbilly Robot  (2001)

-- 21 Minutes -- 2001 -- Super 16mm (transferred & edited from awful-looking BetaSP) ---- "Partially filmed in Baltimore and screened here twice this year (at the Maryland Film Festival in May and Artscape in July), Todd Rohal's 23-minute short turns the goofy premise of the title into a weirdly lyrical parable of bigotry, loneliness, and places that are gone. An automaton clad in suspenders and a John Deere cap wanders a desolate urban wasteland, stoically enduring hatred and condescension, while his wife is abused by a demented junkman and his son tries to fit in with the Other Kids. Robot shifts from crazy parody to sly satire to underground-film huh-wha? with oddball comic energy, while writer-director Rohal subtly ups the thematic ante by shooting in a series of ravaged, obsolescent locales (the shell of Memorial Stadium, a creaky Northern Virginia dinosaur park), tying it all together with a final sequence in South Baltimore's abandoned Wagner's Point neighborhood that strikes poignant grace notes of loss and resilience. A strange, funny, very smart film." --Andy Markowitz, BALTIMORE CITY PAPER, Baltimore "Short Film of the Year" Award, 2002 This film features many cast members of THE GUATEMALAN HANDSHAKE and a portion of the breakdancing scene appears in David Gordon Green's film SNOW ANGELS.

Trancendental Love s01 e01

It has been many years since I had a proper release. I decided using Vimeo was my only choice because I am also a visual artist.  Many (if not most) will view this for a second and be bored. That is ok. It is the other 5% that understand art is a communication, not a product in and of itself to be liked or hated. I created this piece to communicate my heart, to enable you the guest to experience a journey that spans 20+ years all bound by common themes then and now. I will not explain, I will leave you to interpret. There are movements as in orchestral music, key changes, times to rest and times to move, all the while I provide a visual that is yet another unifying theme. I hope we can talk, dream and exchange ideas better going forwards.

DRI (dirty rotten imbeciles) live at top cats (cincinnati,ohio) 7/16/04

video shot and edited by: George Forste 2004/10 idgf underground www.myspace.com/idgfunderground www.dirtyrottenimbeciles.com www.myspace.com/dri2 www.myspace.com/drifanpage www.youtube.com/user/dristuff00 www.stores.ebay.com/IMBECILESTORE Disclaimers: 1.) this video was shot with the full permission from the band. The video is intended for free promotion only. NO PROFIT IS TO BE MADE ON THIS VIDEO. 2.) Despite the video is uncut on its timeline there are portions of the performance that have been "blurred out" due to violations of VIMEOS policy. Biography: The DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES' history begins on May 2, 1982 around 4:00pm, in the city of Houston, TX. It was on this day that the musically aggressive quartet we now know as D.R.I. made their first Dirty Rotten noise and called it a song. Back then it was Spike Cassidy (guitar), Kurt Brecht (vocals), Eric Brecht (drums), and Dennis Johnson (bass). The group started practicing at Kurt and Eric's parents home, where the brothers lived amongst the "Madman" (their father).They practiced a few nights a week around 5:00pm, just as the Madman would be on his way home from a hard day at work. He would open his front door only to be blasted with 120db of the band's horrendous attempt to make music. The Madman would then pound on their jam room door until he was let in so that in turn, he could throw them out of his house calling them such things as " you bunch of dirty rotten imbeciles ". This is how D.R.I. got their name. 2 months later, on July 2, 1982, the band played their first show at Joe Star's OMNI, in Houston. On November 6th & 7th of 1982 D.R.I. recorded their first release, the Dirty Rotten EP, stuffing 22 songs into 18 minutes on a 7" EP that played at 33 rpm's. Only 1000 copies of this EP version were pressed, making it now a very rare collector's item. Demand caused the EP to be pressed into a 12" LP version, released in 1983, appropriately called Dirty Rotten LP. Leaving the underground music scene thriving for more. The DRLP became a major success and also an inspiration for many new bands at the time. Soon after that D.R.I. was labeled the fastest band in the world. In 1983 D.R.I. moved to San Francisco, where they lived in their van and ate at soup kitchens in between gigs. Dennis Johnson quit the band and returned home to Texas. He was replaced with Sebastian Amok, and within a few months D.R.I. found themselves on the "Rock Against Reagan" tour with the Dead Kennedy's. At the conclusion of this tour, they replaced Sebastian Amok with Josh Pappe`. Their next release was the 4 song, 7", Violent Pacification EP, in 1984. After touring in the summer of 1984, Eric Brecht got married and left the band. He was replaced with Felix Griffin. D.R.I.'s second full length release, Dealing With It , came in March 1985. The group toured extensively in support of the album. Sometime during the recording of the album, Josh took a leave from the band. Mikey Offender (bass player of the Offenders) was asked to play for the album, although Spike played bass on the songs that Mikey didn't have time to learn. The songs on DWI pointed slightly towards a metal direction, but still remained very hardcore. Almost legendary is the band's recording of "Madman", where Kurt's dad is mad and disturbs a rehearsal. The band gains a real cult status, supported by such fans as Dave Lombardo (Slayer), who tells everyone he's influenced by D.R.I. On April 26th, 1986, they recorded their show at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles, and released the video, which was entitled Live At The Olympic. Their third album, Crossover, released in 1987, was perfectly named since the songs on this album had a strong metal sound to them. As the band began to "crossover" to thrash, their songs became longer, slower, and more complex. The press has called D.R.I. the major band of the "crossover" movement, a style that combined punk, hardcore and metal. This music invited a mixed audience of punks, skinheads, and metal fans to their shows, who introduced things like stage diving and slam dancing. The 'Live at the Ritz' video was recorded next, on June 27th 1987, at 'the Ritz' in New York, during the band's worldwide Crossover tour. Also in 1987, one of their songs, 'Snap' appeared on a compilation (with other bands supporting some cause) entitled P.E.A.C.E. In February of 1988, the Dirty Rotten Imbeciles returned to the studio to record Four Of A Kind. The songs on this album have even more of a metal sound to them, and production is the best it's ever been. They even released a music video for the song 'Suit and Tie Guy'. At the same time, the Dirty Rotten LP was remixed to include the songs from the Violent Pacification EP, and was re-released. The band toured Europe again to support the Four of A Kind album, then once home in the U.S., Josh Pappe` leaves the band to play for Boston's Gang Green. He is replaced by John Menor. September 1989 brought the release of Thrash Zone. Two music videos were released from this album. One for 'Beneath the Wheel' and the other for 'Abduction'. Sometime after this, Felix Griffin leaves the group and is replaced by Rob Rampy. During the spring of 1992, Definition was released on Spike Cassidy's own label, Rotten Records. A music video was released for the song 'Acid Rain', and later was even featured in an episode of MTV's "Beavis and Butthead". D.R.I. toured in 1992, opening for Testament, as well as headlining their own shows. They recorded their gig at the Hollywood Palladium on November 27th, 1992, and it was released in 1994 as their first live album, appropriately entitled Live. It was, more or less released as a stepping stone, between Definition and Full Speed Ahead. Soon after recording the show, John Menor leaves D.R.I. He is replaced by one of the band's long time friends and roadie, Chumly Porter. In the fall of 1994 D.R.I. Headlined the international Lolitabazooka tour in Canada & the USA. In 1995, D.R.I. released their newest album called Full Speed Ahead. They also made another music video, this time for a song called 'Syringes in the Sandbox'. In January of 1996, they started touring North America with Acid Bath opening for them. But in April, Rob and Spike ran into some trouble trying to cross the Canadian border because they had both been previously charged with 'Driving Under the Influence' in the U.S. Needless to say, all of their Canadian dates had to be cancelled. And as much as they tour even today, I still don't think Canada will let them in! 1996 also was the release of Slayers Undisputed Attitude Album, witch covered the D.R.I. song 'Violent Pacification'. During 1997-98 D.R.I. continued to tour the world extensively, including European & S.American dates. In March of 1998 D.R.I. launched their Official Web site (www.DirtyRottenImbeciles.com). Also in 1998, NYC's own Metal Thrashers 'Athrax' also covered 2 DRI songs, 'Snap' and 'Id Rather be Sleeping' on their release "Inside Out'. During 1999, D.R.I. appears as one of the headlining bands on the Social Chaos Tour in North America. One of their songs, 'I'm the Liar', is used for a Social Chaos Tour compilation CD, containing one song from each band that appeared on the tour. During August of 1999, in the middle of the Social Chaos Tour, Chumly leaves the band because he is burnt out on touring, and is replaced by Harald Oimoen. Harald had been working on and off with the band for years, doing everything from photography and merchandise to Bass Tech. The band resumed the tour, only missing 2 shows replacing Chumly. In the year 2000, D.R.I. Founder/Guitarist, Spike Cassidy, loses Rotten Records to D.R.I. Manager, Ron Peterson in a partnership backstabbing, and a long court battle is sure to commence. D.R.I. fired their money hungry, backstabbing, rip off manager Ron Peterson, took its catalog of CD's, and left Rotten Records in search of a new record label. The band is said to be entertaining a few good offers. The year also saw the Dirty Rotten Imbeciles headlining their own 'Millennium 2000 Tour' which had been broken into two halves, taking place in the spring and fall of 2000. In 2001 D.R.I. signs with the Independent Label, Beer City Records. D.R.I. is scheduled to embark once again, this time on the "Old School Tour" in the spring of 2001! In 2002 D.R.I. celebrates it 20th year anniversary, kicking off of a world tour named 20 Dirty Rotten Years. The tour is so successful additional legs and shows are added till the tour winds up going well into 2003. The tour covers north and South America, Europe and the UK, Japan and hopes of Australia. 2002 also sees the Bands first release with new and current record label Beer City Records. D.R.I. and Beer City records release the millennium enhanced re-issue of the Dirty Rotten CD that now has 22 bonus tracks, including radio interviews and live video from CBGB's in 1984. 44 tracks in all. Beer City records continues to reissue D.R.I.'s old catalog, and in 2003 they release the millenium enhanced version of the Dealing With it CD. It also has many bonus tracks added to it, along with video clips from a cable tv interview in 1986. D.R.I. also releases a new Skate Board Deck on the sister company, Beer City Skateboards. Its 2004 and the Imbeciles are still at it. Another long world tour that covers over 23 countries, including some places the band has never played before, if you can believe that. After the tour is over, Original Band Members Kurt Brecht and Spike Cassidy work outside the band. Kurt Brecht sings a song on Dave Grohl's solo project 'Probot". the song is track 6 and is called 'Silent Spring'. Spike Cassidy continues to record, engineer & produce bands for other labels. His latest project was the second release "Death Toll' from the Oklahoma based 'Earth AD'. Spike has produced the bands Acid Bath, Deface, STG, and Kiss the Clown, to name a few, as well as all D.R.I. records. ' 2005 sees D.R.I. songs appear on a multiple releases. Two DRI songs are used on the Video Games 'Back Yard Wrestling 2' and 'Tony Hawks American Wasteland'. Another Song is said to be used in the upcoming surf Film titled 'Bruce the Movie'. Lastly the infamous 'Punk Rock Orchestra' should be covering a DRI song on its next release In Early 2006 Spike Cassidy, guitarist and Original Founder of D.R.I., was diagnosed with Cancer. He underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy and is said to be winning the battle against cancer. Spike is expected to make a full recovery within a year, but will have to be scanned and tested for a few years to help prevent a relapse. 2007 rings in D.R.I.'s 25th anniversary and the bands hopes to tour are foiled by Spikes ongoing cancer battle. Spike is said to be in good spirits and health but is still unable to tour due to complications. 2008 D.R.I. appears on the soundtrack for the independent short film, "Vampire Hunter Hank," starring Don "Chile" Ortega! In 2009 yet another D.R.I. song makes an appearance on the new 'Skate 2' Video Game. This time its the bands pounding grind of 'Beneath the Wheel'. Also, Decibel Magazine plans to induct the 1985 D.R.I. release "Dealing With It' into its Album Hall of Fame. For the past 27 years, D.R.I. has been the epitome of the aggressive, hardcore-punk thrash sound that we've all become accustomed to hearing. Throughout this time, they've been one of the few genuine underground bands to remain true to their pure punk roots. Still actively touring and recording, the only thing that may have changed is that they're a little older now, but time hasn't gotten the best of the Dirty Rotten Imbeciles. They're still thrashing just as hard, and just as loud as ever, continuing to overload our senses with the sound that is, and will always remain, uniquely D.R.I. source: bands website (www.dirtyrottenimbeciles.com)

King Khan & The Shrines Live In Seattle/LIVE EYE TV

Soul-acid revivalist King Khan is the man with the big bag of tricks and if you're hurting, loaded or losing your mind, he's got just the fix! Like some angel dusted James Brown from outer space, Khan dishes up the sexual chocolate like it was a holy sacrament in his Church of Psychedelic Eroticism! The King Khan story begins in the frigid teenage wasteland that was Montreal of last century, oh say 1995 or so, when a couple down and out punks took refuge in an old flying saucer they found in someone's garage. Thus was born the Spaceshits, a Gun Club x The Sonics revival of all things garage, with doses of a ragged, punk rock Soul thrown in to belie the band's young age. Khan, then eighteen, born in Montreal but of Indian heritage, was playing bass and performing under the name Blacksnake. The Spaceshits began writing songs after recruiting Powersquats' Mark Sultan (Les Sexareenos, BBQ, etc.), and would be soon joined by Blacksnake on bass. The band became known for short, unruley shows that finally resulted in the Spaceshits being banned from a number of Montreal venues. Short-lived but powerful, the band would go onto tour Europe, before Blacksnakes permanent stop in Berlin would prove too much for the band to continue. The Spaceshits broke up upon return from Europe with members like Mark Sultan continuing to play in a bunch of bands as well as solo under the name BBQ. In Germany, in 1999, Blacksnake would under-go a spiritual revival taking the name King Khan, and assembling his "Psychedelic-Soul-Big-Band", The Sensational Shrines. The initial incarnation would include Ron Streeter, live percussionist for Soul legends like Curtis Mayfield and Stevie Wonder, as well as a horn section of "rowdy teenagers". Just before recording their second full-length in 2001, Three Hairs and Your Mine, for Switzerland's Voodoo Rhythm Records, the band would also add Fredovitch, "Bordeaux's wildest organ player" to round out this troop of free acid love gypsies. Sixties-style, guitar driven garage rock was now taking even deeper revivalist tones with these infusions of horns and hammond organ and the party was in full force with Khan's larger than life Empressario of High Jinx persona. Often costumed, hooded, half naked, or in a dress singing about wanting to be a girl, it is King Khan's killer voice, whiskey soaked with soul, that steals the show! King Khan and the Shrines have a number of great releases to check out like Billiards at nine thirty, a split LP with Detroit's Dirtbombs, as well as a couple on Vice Records, 2007's What Is?!, and the 2008 compilation, The Supreme Genius of King Khan and the Shrines. Khan also continues to perform and tour with his soul brother Mark Sultan as King Khan and the BBQ Show, a two-piece doo-wop punk smash up. In addition, Khan and BBQ join the guys in The Black Lips to form The Almighty Defenders whose self-titled LP on Vice Records last year included the speaker ripping, late-night sing-a-long "Bow Down and Die." And if that isn't enough King Khan's analogue equipped Moon Studio in Berlin has seen recordings by friends like Deerhunter and Demon Claw.

King Khan & the Shrines

King Khan & the Shrines preform "Shivers Down My Spine" at Neumos on Live Eye Tv in Seattle, 2010. Soul-acid revivalist King Khan is the man with the big bag of tricks and if you're hurting, loaded or losing your mind, he's got just the fix!

11. L'INSOLENTE by Sandra CALLIGARO

L'INSOLENTE by Sandra CALLIGARO

2001 Commander Massoud was assassinated. Two days later, September 11th, the Twin Towers collapsed. The United States was attacked on home soil, war was declared on Afghanistan in response. On the 14th November, Kabul was liberated. The Taliban regime fell in December, two months after the beginning of American intervention. International organisations were deployed throughout the country. 2011. After a decade of western civilian and military presence, thousands of dollars spent on development, and as many lost in the limbo of corruption, Kabul is a city of contradictions, complex and in the process of great change on an architectural, as well as human level. It has developed a unique style, that of the capital of a two-tiered country : on the one hand, economic growth that has been deceptively inflated by international presence and on the other hand the war with its share of destruction and refugee camps. Recent buildings with their gaudy colours, a reflection of the change in attitudes and culture of its inhabitants, are built alongside traditional constructions with varying degrees of harmony and logic. The increasingly drastic security measures make concrete walls higher and higher. The city centre and business district seem barricaded in, isolated and disfigured. For all that, young people hang out in the abundance of fast food restaurants and supermarkets. A few yards further on, shepherds graze their flocks in amongst the rubbish. The tarmac doesn’t seem to bother goats and sheep. Dirty-haired children with pink cheeks play with bits of string and plastic bags on wasteland and are the perfect emblem of poverty. We have been shown everything of Kabul, have seen everything. The manner of portraying a country at war is with no holds barred, almost pornographic. I regularly work with the media and now want to show a more sensitive and personal vision of Kabul, a city that has always fascinated as much as exasperated me. I have looked for the human side of the city, trying to keep a certain distance and therefore modesty. Just underline a few small details, that are hardly tangible. A sign of respect for this city that has become so familiar to me, but in which I will always be a foreigner, a “guest” as the Afghans say.


12. Take a leap into a memory hole

Take a leap into a memory hole

Introduction The video footage was taken at two historical sites: an abandoned brick factory in the town of Didžiasalis, Lithuania, and a fence of the former U.S. embassy building in Tehran, Iran. Following the terms of Walid Sadek’s “The Ruin to Come” (2013), the vector of analysis draws from considering these two objects as ruins and juxtaposing them. Reflecting upon how the mementos of Cold War relations are neglected or preserved depending on present geo-political situations, the work suggests that these two locations could be paralleled as margins of the Western neo-liberal system. Since its shutdown due to the lack of investments, the site of the former brick factory turned into a pile of rubble, a wasteland at best used as a lorry-parking lot. The town of Didžiasalis that holds a population of roughly one and a half thousand, is now suffering from high unemployment, economic stagnation, social problems, violence, poverty and slums. Located just next to the border with Belarus and rich by natural clay deposits, the town had its peak at the times of Brezhnev when the brick factory employed a large number of workers and entire blocks of neighbourhoods were built around it; now which are now dilapidated and abandoned or occupied by the homeless. In contraposition, the former U.S. embassy located in the centre of Tehran nowadays functions as a museum of military and political relations (It is technically inaccessible for tourists from the countries of conflict, but there are ways around that). The post-1979 mural on the outer side of the fence portrays the US flag and the Statue of Liberty with its face turned into a skull. The mural has been re-painted for several times since its creation. Interestingly, the painting continues to ‘grow’ more and more facial flesh each time it is restored. While being a source of former state-propaganda, it is incrementally transformed and re-evaluated. Instead of agitating or didactically concluding, this work puts emphasis on the visual appearance of the two sites; the poem attempts a speculative inquiry on their agency as embodied affects of public memory. The conception of restorative nostalgia by Svetlana Boym offers a one-sighted view of a linear history through glorifying and pre-evaluated imagery of monuments in the public spaces that hold an affective power on the citizens of the country. On the contraposition to the restorative, a reflective way of dealing with memory is considered to be less contradictive, allowing a natural non-predetermined process of collective memory to “digest” historical periods of time by a constant re-evaluation and transformation. Hence the organic decay of the factory is juxtaposed with manual transformation of the mural, addressing the natural process of forgetting. Personification is applied by projecting a voice onto an inorganic material that is determined as a container of inert past with an ability to be re-shaped and superseded within a non-linear perspective of memory.

13. Robeling / Wasteland

Robeling / Wasteland

In the spring of 1869 John Augustus Roebling, recently dead and with a crushed left foot, visited the San Joaquin Wasteland. In the fall of 2001, from a small Italian town named after a bridge, I began to tell this story, but didn't know it at the time.
