Buried Inside - Time as Imperialism



The calendar year is an imperial narrative.
The seven-day week is an imperial infliction. 
Circannual holidays are imperial flag-posts.

Mechanical time is an imperial installation. 
The merchant workday is an imperial offering. 
Greenwich MeanTime is an imperial sanction.

OIA ft. Anjelika Akbar - Ben kimim? (Who Am I?) (vers.1)



Who Am I?

Am I too few or too much
Am I existing or non-existing
What am I

Am I the fairy tale or the reality

Am I the fleeing or the exodus
Am I nothing or the fault
Who am I

Am I the tenet or the insanity

The Freedom Charter



Taking my inspiration from the old political slogans and stencils that were used during the struggle against apartheid.

I wanted to bring to life sentences from the freedom charter document that i felt were still pressing in south africa today.

The freedom charter document is an important historical document that acted as a backbone for the struggle listing the demands and desires of the people. Today it is becoming increasingly evident that many of these changes have only been made on a superficial level.

Kiyoshiro - Summertime Blues



Japanese Rocker Kiyoshiro Imawano sings cover of Eddie Cochran's Summer Time Blues. It's a protest song about proliferation of nuclear power plants in Japan.

This was probably performed in the late 80's or early 90's, when there were only 37 nuclear power plants in a country smaller than the state of California and at least a couple of decades before the recent Fukushima nuclear power plant disasters.

Red hot summer is getting closer
Everybody's going to beach to have some fun
When I was swimming in a deserted sea
I found a nuclear power station
What they are here for, I don't understand
In this small Japan, Summertime blues

暑い夏がそこまで来てる
みんなが海へくり出していく
人気のない所で泳いだら
原子力発電所が建っていた
さっぱりわかんねえ、何のため?
狭い日本のサマータイム・ブルース

Black hot smoke is out from the chimney
Tokai Earthquake is coming closer
But they still keep on increasing
Nuclear power plants are increasing
What the hell they're built for, I don't understand
In this small Japan, Summertime blues
