NATO COMES TO CHICAGO


Oh no NATO is coming to Chicago!
What a mighty inferno shall the Windy City blow
Worse than Mrs. O'Leary's cow kicked the can
In The Loop will the shit hit the fan.

LATE NIGHT IN ROSEMONT


It's quite late on a Wednesday
Covered up my watch
Turned my direction opposite the clock
I refuse to know the time
I would rather be timeless
To be more as air
The lair of breath
Gas exchange
Morrissey chants:
In the midst of life we are in death
Random thoughts fly through the air
Lights hum with electricity
Montrèal elects cities
Saw a plane turn over de Maisonneuve
On the way to Dorval
Caught its lights at an angle
Turns are not always circles
Circles are continuous turns
Why go for 3 rings
When 5 rings are optimistic
8 rings would be enough
Extravagance can be tricky
Getting back on point
Finding the centre
Falling into precision
Bouncing on percussion
Trying to stay balanced
On how to be
The only thing possible
-Der Kosmonaut

WHO IS ANDERS BREIVIK?


By Ljubodrag Simonović


Breivik's crime has a profoundly symbolic value.
The massacre on the island of Utøya is a concrete manifestation of the destructive nature of the ruling order.
Breivik is the authentic product of contemporary capitalism.
He is one of the crusaders of a „new world order“ based on the ruling principle of monopolistic capitalism: „Destroy the competition!“
The most powerful American and European capitalist circles do not hide the fact that their goal is to annihilate billions of „surplus“ people.
How many „Breiviks“ are there in NATO uniforms?
The „problem“ is that Breivik killed independently.

Unholy Matrimony



The following rite of Unholy Matrimony comes from the Book of Uncommon Prayer in accordance with The Civil Marriage Act of Canada 2005.

Celebrant: We are here to legalise the union, the enchainment of two persons. Persons who for either convenience or inconvenience have taken the extraordinarily extreme decision to marry.
The partnership of all matters domestic and business. Indeed, marriage is a serious business. The very fact we are performing unholy matrimony next to the cemetery reveals just how grave marriage is.
Marriage is the spoken and written word. Marriage is the compact of words which attempt to form a coherent order of thought in the manifestation of sentences. Undo the sentence then marriage becomes undone.
Caution! Marriage is a sentence of life without parole. That's why one must speak à la parle to legalise marriage. The written and spoken word form the perfect marriage.
However, grammar dictates two choices: the singular and the plural. One can serve a sentence of life in the singular or in the plural. Marriage is an individual who seeks to serve a sentence of life in the plural. If they are heterosexual and reproduce children, they then become a plurality. Homosexuals who live in the plural of marriage can never obtain a plurality.

We are here to join Dumdum and Fool is sacrilegious matrimony. Now think very carefully. Take as much time as you want to answer. There are no time limits until you answer in the affirmative or negative. I will ask the most simple question to a most complicated matter. Mind the consequences! Your life depends upon your answer.

Do you Dumdum take Fool here as your lawfully married partner to exploit, manipulate and maybe to love til the day one of you expires?

Dumdum: I do.

Celebrant: Do you Fool take Dumdum as your lawfully married partner to cheat, deceive and maybe respect until the day one of you expires?

Fool: I do.

Celebrant: By the power invested by me into ST. CUM, I pronounce you married.

ZEITGEIST FASCISM



By By Ljubodrag Duci Simonović
Zeitgeist abolishes the possibility of creating alternative worlds and thus the possibility of a future that is the result of man's free choice and creative practice. Designing the future is reduced to its being given. Zeitgeist abolishes man as a creative being capable of creating his own world and reduces him to an instrument with which the „elite“ of scientists, led by the modern „Messiah“ (Jacque Fresco), „creates a future“ in which an artificial man will live in an artificial (denaturalized and dehumanized) world.

Rupert Murdoch



All of Great Britain is in shock. Can it be that Count Dracula is Rupert Murdoch? Shouldn't he be standing in the dock then imprisoned for life in an isolation cell tightly locked? But we're all being mocked.
Rupert is nothing more than an old shrivelled up cock.

Was gesagt werden muss von Günter Grass

Editorial: Adventures of Der Kosmonaut defends Günter Grass and his poem "What must be said." Grass is under severe attack in the German media for "Anti-Semitism". Not only is the charge absurd but worse than that. As the US and Israel make preparations for a devastating war against Iran, any criticism or objection to war is to be censored. Again and again, one witnesses how genocide, colonialism and imperialism gets glossed over with "preventing another Holocaust" or "stopping another Hitler." Not one single criticism against the poem is based on its writing quality or style of prose. The attacks are ideologically based and launched by capitalistically degenerated "Coca-Cola intellectuals" (Duci Simonovic) Adventures of Der Kosmonaut not only agrees with "What must be said" but also ratifies the poem.

Introducing Danny Simmons

Danny Simmons was the famed train announcer at New York's Penn Station. Between 1968 and 1994, Simmons announced all the departing inter-city and interstate trains. He had a distinctive voice and his mannerisms were always entertaining. Simmons was probably the greatest actor in Modern history. He had a very unique way of pronouncing all the names of the stops for each train he announced. He always sat in his window booth perched above the waiting room. He always wore a white collar shirt with a neck-tie loosely around his neck. When he wasn't announcing the trains, he had the
most interesting countenance on his face. His facial expression went from bored to bemused to earnest.
