* write for testcard

etc.: hopeless culture/queer/politics/freedom romantic

am torn between pop culture and politics, between party and criticism, between my love for the net culture and printed books, between non-profit / d.i.y. culture (independence) and having to survive (compromises), between queer-feminist culture and having been indoctrinated to see the world through straight/male eyes, between cultural cynicism and hope, between earl grey and coffee, between english and german, between glitter and minimalism, between beats&bassmusic and punk&hardcore, between cats and dog… – no, strike that: cats rule.

the name ‘eve massacre’:
it is a nod to ‘the flamingo massacres’, my old band’s name. it’s the title of a chapter of irvine welsh’s ‘marabou stork nightmares’. it has been my web and dj name for so long that it feels more like my real name than the one in my passport.
