Re: Net Art News submission


Now this is what I call a brilliant work - reaching further than typical ar=
t-pseudo. I felt humbled whilst viewing the whole piece as it communicated =
to me via the voice of a man who (like many men, women & children) deserved=
so much more than what these (soulless) power seekers have shamefully disi=
ngenuously given. I am not going to cheapen this piece with any more verbal=
nonsense - just thanx for being truthful and intuitive in your intentions =
in making this piece.

thanx again - marc

From: Michael Szpakowski

'An Enemy of the People'

http://www.somedancersandmusicians.com/enemy/AnEnemyOfThePeople.html

Arrested on a trumped up charge in 1939 by Joseph Stalin's secret polic=
e the NKVD, Lukasz Szpakowski spent the next two years as a slave labourer =
in the giant Russian system of penal camps, the Gulag.
Two years ago, aged 87, he was interviewed at length by his son, the UK=
composer and net artist Michael Szpakowski.

Ivan sez:
Only two years, he was lucky.
The US governmet has started placing people in its own gulag. Recently =
a US citizen was seized off a plane and condemned by the President and all =
his henchmen as a terrorist. Handed over to the US army, this individual ha=
s disappeared into an army camp. The people and the courts, fearful for all=
sorts of reasons, refuse to condemn this action or other similar actions H=
ow many years these people will spend in the US gulag, who knows. Hopefully=
, when they are 87 they will be interviewed by their own children and art w=
ill be made about their experiences. We won't learn from it, of course, as =
we never can.

Re: Lee Marvin Toolbox


Will try again - got nothing against irony or satire at all. Some of the
most effective art/music is ironic and still possesses soul...

Shame on you - failure

Blankoriginally mailed 9/12

I read, hear and see the noise and it is deafening, frightening and also
suffocating. Tonight I cannot sleep for that noise is hurting bad. it's like
a continious whine declaring a woeful sense of foreboding. A realisation of
how vulnerable life is and how deadly humanity and its insecurities really
are. Man (little boy child) has been too willing to declare his obsession
with killing anyone and anything that is worth living for. This
addictiveness is deep in its emptiness. Profound in its ugliness and
desperate in its soulless efforts to deny love.

Too many small minded, visionless grunts shooting up on death. The Bombastic
spurt of insecure muscle brain rules the day, killing beauty in so many
different unimaginative ways.

(To all those people who are small minded enough to harness the shallow
belief that killing will in some way solve their personal problems. Think
again little men, it only serves to reflect the lack of real courage and
respect that you hold for another's life. Shame on you - failure)
