desobediencia civilSi un hombre camina en el bosque por el puro placer de hacerlo durante la mitad del día, se arriesga a que lo tachen de vago. Pero si dedica el día entero a especular, a talar ese bosque y a esquilmar la tierra, será considerado un ciudadano industrioso, un emprendedor.
La forma en que la mayoría de los hombres se gana la vida, no es más que una manera de buscar fortuna y de esquivar el verdadero sentido de la existencia.
Porque, para lo esencial, les falta discernimento; pero también en parte porque sus objetivos son mediocres.
H. D.Thoreau

Tras la retrospectiva de Yoko Ono (de la que salí conmocionada), sólo falta que le dediquen una super retrospectiva a Maruja Mallo y les beso los pies.

La crueldad tiene corazón humano
y la envidia humano rostro;
el terror reviste divina forma humana
y el secreto lleva ropas humanas.

Las ropas humanas son de hierro forjado,
la forma humana es fragua llameante,
el rostro humano es caldera sellada
y el corazón humano, su gola hambrienta.
W. Blake.

Entrevista a Bjork

I have nothing against Kanye West. Help me with this—I’m not dissing him—this is about how people talk about him. With the last album he did, he got all the best beatmakers on the planet at the time to make beats for him. A lot of the time, he wasn’t even there. Yet no one would question his authorship for a second. If whatever I’m saying to you now helps women, I’m up for saying it. For example, I did 80% of the beats on Vespertine and it took me three years to work on that album, because it was all microbeats—it was like doing a huge embroidery piece. Matmos came in the last two weeks and added percussion on top of the songs, but they didn’t do any of the main parts, and they are credited everywhere as having done the whole album. [Matmos’] Drew [Daniel] is a close friend of mine, and in every single interview he did, he corrected it. And they don’t even listen to him. It really is strange.

Pitchfork: How does it make you feel when this happens now?

B: I have to say—I got a feeling I am going to win in the long run, but I want to be part of the zeitgeist, too. I want to support young girls who are in their 20s now and tell them: You’re not just imagining things. It’s tough. Everything that a guy says once, you have to say five times. Girls now are also faced with different problems. I’ve been guilty of one thing: After being the only girl in bands for 10 years, I learned—the hard way—that if I was going to get my ideas through, I was going to have to pretend that they—men—had the ideas. I became really good at this and I don’t even notice it myself. I don’t really have an ego. I’m not that bothered. I just want the whole thing to be good. And I’m not saying one bad thing about the guys who were with me in the bands, because they’re all amazing and creative, and they’re doing incredible things now. But I come from a generation where that was the only way to get things done. So I have to play stupid and just do everything with five times the amount of energy, and then it will come through.

When people don’t credit me for the stuff I’ve done, it’s for several reasons. I’m going to get very methodical now! [laughs] One! I learned what a lot of women have to do is make the guys in the room think it was their idea, and then you back them up. Two! I spend 80% of the writing process of my albums on my own. I write the melodies. I’m by the computer. I edit a lot. That for me is very solitary. I don’t want to be photographed when I’m doing that. I don’t invite people around. The 20% of the album process when I bring in the string orchestras, the extras, that’s documented more. That’s the side people see. When I met M.I.A., she was moaning about this, and I told her, “Just photograph yourself in front of the mixing desk in the studio, and people will go, ‘Oh, OK! A woman with a tool, like a man with a guitar.’” Not that I’ve done that much myself, but sometimes you’re better at giving people advice than doing it yourself. I remember seeing a photo of Missy Elliott at the mixing desk in the studio and being like, a-ha!

It’s a lot of what people see. During a show, because there are people onstage doing the other bits, I’m just a singer. For example, I asked Matmos to play all the beats for the Vespertine tour, so maybe that’s kind of understandable that people think they made them. So maybe it’s not all sexist evil. [laughs] But it’s an ongoing battle. I hope it doesn’t come across as too defensive, but it is the truth. I definitely can feel the third or fourth feminist wave in the air, so maybe this is a good time to open that Pandora’s box a little bit and air it out.

Begoña García-Alén, para quien no la conozca, es una artista de Pontevedra bastante impresionante.
Sus dibujos -y su universo- llevan una exquisita carga de misterio y belleza. Son hermosos e inquietantes; refinados, sensuales y sesudos.
La editorial Fosfatina acaba de editar este libro, Perlas del Infierno, que es un verdadero alucine.

Ay, casi mi olvido: si estáis en Bilbao, esta noche de Reyes se celebra un Izar & Star especial Led Zeppelin:
Last Fair Deal y sus compinches llevan meses preparando un conciertaco que horrorizaría a Simon Reynolds pero pondrá los pelos de punta a todos los que una vez se emocionaron escuchando Good times, bad times.
Por fin, mi hermana va a ser John Bonham…. Desde que era pequeñita la he visto tocar por encima de sus breaks y bombos puñeteros. Verla ahí, aporreando como Bonzo, puede ser increíble. Bravo!!
