Referendum 11/05/14

People voted on referendum of 11/05/14 for only one real reason: to give a formal reason that would allow RF to act according to a Crimean scenario, that’s what people wanted, were hoping for, Strelkov came to Slavyansk planning only to secure referendum and protect people until RF recognizes DPR and LPR. But there was no Crimean scenario here and in the end Strelkov had to form the DPR militia as real military force, not just referendum security and engage in a full-scale war protecting DPR and LPR  (even protecting LPR directly since Mozgovoi acted in coordination with Strelkov).

People voted on DPR and LPR elections (with candidates selected by Kremlin’s “Ukraine direction” team) not for some exact candidates, but for their republics, hoping that such elections will finally let RF recognize them, but still it’s only “We respect will of the Donbass people” but also “We support territorial integrity of our neighbor state, junta are partners”

another solid jam last night. worked on the three of the four demos from last time. we took i think 20 steps forward with each of those. BM 2 A has turned into ‘Robert Parrish’ (ba bada ba ba bada ba - a sloan vibe for sure!). Momma Momma has now turned into 'lee harvey oswald’ (explain more later), i threw down a lyric that i have been dying to use. it fit perfectly. lastly was 'highway 101’, still very wooden shjips like. very driving. ben was using a synth. very wobbly. very tasty indeed. i wonder if he will use that for shows???

The Book of the Now, Ethel Baraona Pohl and César Reyes Nájera of dpr-barcelona:

When asked to explain the title of his seminal book The Medium is the Massage, Marshall McLuhan explained that it was actually a fortunate mistake: “Now there are four possible readings for the last word of the title, all of them accurate: MESSAGE and MESS AGE, MASSAGE and MASS AGE” he said.
