A few weeks ago Deathrock.com was reported as an attack site by the Google mafia web cartel. This was a result of being too careless in open WiFi environments and using insecure connections on public terminals. In the end I decided to take down the site and start from scratch again. It was time to redesign the site anyway. I’ve laid my web design ambitions to rest in favor of more general, hands on design. Im no longer interested in writing php scripts, CSS alchemy or pixel-widths. Instead I’ve been into having dirty inky hands, razor blades, camera snapshops, photocopiers, reclaiming textures from the environment around me (http://www.deathrock.com/splatterblog), and appropriating images.
That is all in addition to screenprinting, sewing of textile and paper. Recycling, upcycling, and launching a line of apparel products (http://deathrock.com/creepyrocknroll), which is a world in itself, managing the production, design, promotion and business aspect, and shipping orders via my Etsy Shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/creepyrocknroll).
I’m still DJing once or twice a week mostly in Berlin but some italian and greek dates coming up before the end of the year. With all this activity I’ve been Howling At The Moon and not sleeping much… And I’m also homeless. I have barely got time for being ‘home’ anyway. If I’m not on the road from one part of the city to another or in the studio, Im DJing or working other odd-jobs. That’s life in the neo-Boheme.
