Interzone report of May 21st 2002
Previous report of April
This month has been busy and positive : it started by a trip to Paris, where I was invited on April 30 to the theater play "Interzone ou le Monde de William Burroughs" by Laurent Frechuret performed by the company of the theatre de l'Incendie at the Théâtre de la Cité internationale. It started by an interview of Gerard Georges Lemaire, one of Burroughs' French translator working for Christian Bourgois, main publisher of Burroughs in France at the FNAC Montparnasse.
I met Laurent Frechuret, who was in the Zone list as he asked me two years ago to use my Burroughs' pics for the poster of the play. He has included a dreamachine in the show, the plans of which he found in the Western Lands. :)
Vasha had come as well , by hitch hiking and arrived just before the show. Christine Morquin, who had invited me, drove us there by tube. The part was really good actually, cut-ups of Naked Lunch and Burroughs' characters. The actors were perfect : Dr Benway performed an operation with a nurse who could not have been played by a better actress. She was THE Nurse (see "Naked Lunch" "Interzone"). Same for the man who taught his asshole to talk ("Naked Lunch", "ORDINARY MEN AND WOMEN").
Then we went to Antoine's flat who invited us for a debate on may the 1st on the end of work (see the news of April at : http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Crete/9445/News32.html and had offered to host Zoners for the circumstance for a debate on the end of work: www.antitravail.fr.fm (see below at the paragraph Economy).
The next day was the big demonstration in Paris, though we stayed away from it, and Antoine took us for a walk on the banks of the Seine.
Interzone Editions: books on CD:
Back in Belgium I have started to gather our books on CD : I started by the Taxidermiste, which was foreseen since a long time, and as there is a lot of space left, I added all the books in French, included two tomes of Le Temps des Naguals. As a result, the CD contains 10 books, a whole collection: see the contents at CD . The title is "Le Temps des Naguals" CD1 collection:"Come to Free the Words".
The CD 2 in English : The Time of the Naguals is being prepaired : it's so big that the CD is the only way to present it : printing 1 issue of the several tomes would take ages.
Interzone books on e-books :
Parallelly, some Zoners have been working at e-books for their own writings and books: Sune is proposing:
mubodilefa81374 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Saturday, May 11, 2002 12:13 AM Subject: [THE INTERZONE COFFEE HOUSE] ebooks
A while ago i uploaded at list of my ebooks. I have gathered alot of very different ebooks and i think some of them may be interesting to other zoners. Especially those on magic and drugs and so on. I havent had all of them opened to see if they are really what they say, but i think most of them are ok.
There is not enough room for them all at the coffee house or at my own home page, so what i uploaded is only a LIST - ie. a lot of non-working shortcuts, so that it is possible to see the file name.
My thought is that if anyone finds some of those books interesting they are welcome to contact me and then i will upload to the coffee house or my own home page for download.
(I would like to add that its not because i am more interested in computers than the other stuff, there are just more books avalaible the places i have looked.)
Besides this i would like to recommend the Gutenberg Project, a group of people making ebooks available for free on a volunteer basis. http://promo.net/pg/
been making a new group for it :
The e-books can be added to the CD.
A number of other projects from other Zoners :
William Schafer <email@example.com> : FUCON development, we'd like to invite you to peruse the FUCON website: http://fucon.harrycoin.com (see more in the News page :of may : http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Crete/9445/News33.html
Téléférique http://www.teleferique.org proposes a number of downloadable prgrams.
Project: biocapture v1.0
Antoine and some friends of him have made a project of end of work: all the citizens, included the ones who work, would get a minimum pension from the state allowing to eat and have a house, and only the ones who want to work would work : of course, they would be richer. But this would solve the problems of unemployment and of people economicly excluded. See their site : www.antitravail.fr.fm
Looking in a search engine some days ago, I saw that our pages of economy are listed in the site Eurotechnopolis: http://www.eurotechnopolis.org/fr/observatoire/119/s9.html & http://www.eurotechnopolis.org/fr/observatoire/119/t26.html . Rather surprising, but encouraging anyway.
