“Hands of the apes”..the new movie perhaps

Finally more chaos! Covid only a few years ago, which meant that we people with mental illness suddenly, like everyone else, were affected by what is everyday, precisely because of the norm in society. It made us Elite Soldiers in the mental army because we have the habit of fighting against our brains. Pretty cool. Believes that Covid increased the understanding of the exclusion of people with mental disabilities. Then Putin came and put the focus on himself and no one talked about Covid anymore. Now we have just received the first monkey cups in Sweden. This may provide another dimension of new insights if there is a similar epidemic. So maybe we should not judge the monkeys with smallpox too harshly but see it as a clever trial 🙂

Otherwise, I hope that there will be a film called "Hand of the apes" which will be a horror film instead of another new "Planet of the apes"
SWEDSKI!!
Äntligen mer kaos! Covid först sen i nĂ„gra Ă„r som gjorde att vi folk med psykisk ohĂ€lsa helt plötsligt var som alla andra just pga av normen i samhĂ€llet med drabbades av det som Ă€r vardag. Det gjorde oss till Elitsoldater i den mentala armĂ©n för vi har vanan att kĂ€mpa mot vĂ„ra hjĂ€rnor. RĂ€tt sĂ„ ball. Tror att Covid ökade förstĂ„elsen för personer med mental begrĂ€nsad hĂ€lsas utanförskap. Sen kom Putin Ă„ satte fokuset pĂ„ sig och ingen pratade om Covid mer. Nu har vi precis fĂ„tt de första apkopporna i Sverige. Detta kanske ger ytterligare en dimension av nya insikter om det blir en liknande epidemi. SĂ„ kanske vi inte ska döma aporna med koppor för hĂ„rt utan se det som en fiffig prövning 🙂

I övrigt sĂ„ hoppas jag att det kommer en film som heter ”Hand of the apes” som ska vara en skrĂ€ckfilm istĂ€llet för ytterligare en ny ”Planet of the apes”

“Man tricked by woman and forced to be a dad”

(None escapist article..sorry)

So we got this man that horribly has been forced to be a dad. If you put urĂ© dick in someone that has a vagina u gotta take that risk aswell. I would also feelt it was fucked up shit to become a dad if I wasÂŽnt interested in it but itÂŽs your own fault but itÂŽs shit that can happen. (RED:Hmm…if u wanna have kids write me instead I would love to grow more artists with my genetics if possible…I can post them with express)

Inside of the magazine itÂŽs written as a headline”Men are involuntarily tricked into fatherhood”

In the article he also explains that he wants to push forward a debate where the goal is to discuss “involuntary paternity” which could be an interesting case to follow. But the funny part is what it says in the end of the article at the red cube ” Fredriks name is in reality something completely different”. So if you want to take a stand for what you want, then put yourĂ© name to go with the article so it can be taken seriously.

If u got any comments on this please feel to write me and if u wanna do podprogram with this subject with people on both sides…it seems fun and odd.

Garbage & music – Malmö Sweden

Photo is all copyright Kristin Warfvinge

I wanted to dwell deeper into the musicians that play music created with garbage and asked the project leader Kristin Warfvinge if she could further explain the idea behind it all

Kristin Warfvinge:

” So. Transformera, komponera musicera is a project lead by Kristin Warfvinge (composer), Josef Söreke (composer) and Viktor AuregĂ„rd (musician). From the beginning it was a series of workshops with building, composing and playing but it has taken many forms. For example we’ve also had exhibitions at gallery molekyl and Malmöfestivalen. At Malmöfestivalen we had a 3 day workshop where we provided a pile of garbage for people passing by to build from. Both adults and children joined in and it all finished with a exhibition in a big glass container and a concert with invited musicians.

Some instruments.

Chaussurine:


This “cello” is made from a shoestand and a kitchen drawer. The stick functions as a lever. The harder you push the lever the tighter the string get and the higher the pitch. The best sound you get from playing with a bow..

Helium-tank-drum

This is a helium tank with tongues sawed out. The different tounges have different pitches.

And here we have a guitar of some sort. It has a. Very practical handle..

Does Transformera Musicera Komponera more concerts planned this year or any happenings ?

They will happen. But they are not yet planned 🙂 just like life it self. There will probably be a concert in collab with gallery molekyl soon.

Ushiri: Transformera Komponera Musicera performed at @molekylgallery in Malmö and I recorded a part of it and also made some lifedrawings when they performed.

USHiRimagazine was there and had the chance to speak with some of the performers namely Viktor AuregÄrd and Kristin Warfvinge. I was told that there been a problem with one of the instruments leaking oil when they tried to rehearse with it so it couldnt be a part of the performance. I also got a special close look by one of the performers with a very cool improvised cello where you could adjust/tune the strings with your foot instead of the bow.

Doing life drawings of other people creating themselfs and also hear their creations is really something. To join them in the same sort of trance when the are on with doing what they love the most, that feeling is really what life is all about. Just existing here and now.

I wrongly wrote Galleri Kalkyl in the artwork, I blame beer for this 🙂

VR 3D modeling the choice for artists

I strongly recommend the 3D modeling VR program Shapelab. ItÂŽs the most intuitive way to do sculpting digitally I have come across. ItÂŽs also not very demanding on your computer.

If you think Blender Zbrush and Maya ar shitboring programs and you have no interest in these softwares because of the tons of menues and stuff you need to be able to sculpt and you just want to start creatings like you use a pen on a paper and have a background as an artist then this is the ultimate program.

I didn®t write this because I got paid for it, I wrote this review just because I really want more true artists find out that you dont need to learn the stiff programs (That is actually more created for programmers than artists it feels like). So if you own one of the following headsets: Oculus Quest 2,Valve Index,,HTC Vive,Oculus Rift,Windows Mixed Reality there will be no end of how fun you can have with actually feel the true sense of enjoyment to just start sculpting your 3dmodels directly. It®s a must if you like trying new art materials from time to time. And if you hesitate, let me put it like this: What the fudge did your phone cost? some 100+ euro probably and if it did then you own it to your creative side to invest these 20euro for you feeling the raw sense of pure superfunfun 😀

Seen from an artists background like me it feels Blender and Zbrush and most softwares are not actually made for artists and is totally bogged down in the old fashioned tools named “mouse” and “keyboard” and we are stuck in the 1980 with these outdated items which does not belong in a new digital era. I often thought why you cant you be able to use two “mouses” at the same time when you want to make 3dmodels or when playing games or why not even a gamepad for sculpting which would have been more intuitive. Zbrush and Blender is proven to be very good programs as we all know but they are “programs” and feel programmed and not user friendly at all and you need to sit with assboring manuals and watch so many tutorial videos and even when you done that and learnt the basic it really has nothing to do with how you sculpt with a slab of clay in real life and have you can use two hands to cut off or add layers of clay to it. No more is this any true since now you have Shapelab on steam for 14 euro, on sale now or their regular price for 20euro which is the best invested money I ever done in any software ever (except publisher which I use for editing my magazine).

If you just do a search on Shapelab you can watch lots of videos of how it work and also checkout steam and read reviews by others and you understand that this is something you must try or just go own right now and die 😀

Background: I bought my Oculus Quest 2 solely for sculpting and 3Dmodelling but after a while the free program Adobe Medium which is similar to this suddenly changed their minimum requirements to use it and I was overnight without the possibility to do what I started to enjoy so much namely make my twisted creatures in 3D.

So my sort of review is more like a boost of how much I can recommend it and really not about the program in detail of how to use it because itÂŽs that easy to learn so its not really much to tell more than you use your controllers much as you use your hands when sculpting in IRL. The manual is only 12 pages and not heavy on the text and very easy to get how it works. So I say BRING CREATIVITY INTO 3D MODELING!

IŽm a huge nerd and game and have written 180+ review on steam so if uré interested in games that deals with: Rougelike,rts,milsims,bullethell,swordcombat,tnaks,strategy,minimalism,procedural generation,Local co-op. then check my steampage:https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197963588013

Men without socks – Doka 2 – Gamereview

+ I dont remember what I paid for it.
– I paid for it

Maimenu is quite cute looking

ItÂŽs possible to switch language from russian but it does not matter so much since there is actually no options. Also you can play as a zombie but then you meet halfnaked guys instead with no socks.

Also all have shaved bodies and no hair what so ever, I guess that can be sexually arousing for somebody and mildly thrilling. The again its fitting with the Corona virus going around now that you actually have body contact with people you meet, even if the only reason is to smack their head of until it becomes a bloody mess.

You buy weapons from the wall, also some areas you have epic soviet propaganda posters
Fork is also a weapon…

If you for some reason would like to have more of this garbage game…YES there is hope in the dark!!! because the developers have released a DLC named “DOKA 2: Humans, Wizards and Elves DLC#1” which costs 0,79euro.

Do I think it was fun: No not at all. ItÂŽs so bad I actually regret spending time writing all of this.

Attack of the russian tomatoskinheads

So if you feel a the need for it and want to dwell deeper into Agafonoffs gaming studio please do buy it 😀

Get DOKA 2 KISHKI edition at steam for 0,8 euro

A carrot kimchi experience at Möllan

Text, photo, and artwork: Anna Karlsson

A while ago it became known to USHiRi Magazine that Flax, the vegan café and farmstand at Sölvesborgsgatan near Folkets Park in the MöllevÄngen (Möllan) area, has carrot kimchi on their menu. CARROT kimchi! This had to be investigated, we thought.

Below is a report of our visit.

October 2021.

USHiRi Magazine (in the form of Anna): Hi, I’m here from Ushiri Magazine. There is supposed to be some pre-ordered kimchi for me, to review for the magazine actually, I believe there was a guy here earlier today?

Flax (unnamed waitress): Oh, that’s right., yeah… Then you could just speak to Buddha here (nods at the guy behind her).

Flax (Buddha Browett, owner and founder of Flax): Yeah, true, there was a guy here earlier today who ordered kimchi and an apple cider for later. Right, ok, let’s see… (turns to the refrigerator), we sell kimchi in jars, do you want to eat straight out of the jar, or would you like a plate with some bread and dressing to go with it?

Anna: Um…, aha, yeah, well, in that case, I’d like a plate, please.

Buddha reaches for a ceramic bowl and fills it up with fresh-made kimchi, bread, and some whitish, creamy dressing. He also takes one of his see-through glass jars with orange, red, green, and yellow kimchi inside and places it on the counter, so that I can take it with me when I go home.

Buddha: There you go. Hope you’ll like it!

From farming to cooking and serving

Close to the window, I find a small café table with a free seat on a wooden sofa. I release myself from my outer jacket and scarf and pour up the (non-alcoholic) apple cider in my glass. Then I place the bottle and the glass in good relation to the kimchi bowl for a short Kodak moment.

A handful of other customers have made their way into the small café. At the end of the bar is a guy reading a book while drinking his coffee. Close to him is another guy pulling some jokes in English, and then there is a girl waiting for her take-out with a yoga math convoluted in a blue roll on the floor. Another female guest comes through the door carrying a mug and an empty plate, probably having had a fika in the outdoor sitting area. There is also a group of friends who come in to chat with Buddha.

Suddenly I realize that I’ve been here before, in this very room. A friend of mine used to run a massage therapy studio at this location, situated at 10, Sölvesborgsgatan, near the MöllevĂ„ngen, Folkets Park, S:t Knuts, and Sorgenfri neighborhoods, south of downtown Malmö.

Where there now seems to be some sort of a storage area, in a room on top of a stair to the left, I would enter the therapy room to lay down and have my back and shoulders’ muscles squeezed by this strong, dedicated, and kind-hearted girl who always seemed to know exactly where to push and stroke to release the tensions and pain I sometimes suffered from.

That’s almost fifteen years ago, though. After she left sometime around 2010 the facility has housed a few other businesses, and two years ago, at the time of midsummer 2019, chef and farmer Buddha Browett bought an espresso machine and opened up Flax.

An Australian in Malmö

Flax (or “common flax” or “linseed”) is a well-known flowering plant, commonly used for linseed oil as well as linen textiles for bed sheets and table cloths. It’s a name that goes well along with the natural, vegan, and also aesthetically thought-through profile of this cafĂ©.

Buddha Browett had moved to Sweden from his native Sydney, via Barcelona, some years earlier (“because of the weather, haha, no actually I fell in love with a Swedish woman, that I’m no longer together with though).

Step by step he went from selling vegetables at “Bondens Marknad” (“The Farmer’s Market”) at Drottningtorget, to subsequently co-found “REKO-ring Malmö”, a successful selling service where small local farmers can put up crops on Facebook for pre-ordering and weekly distribution straight to customers.

While also having started up and run Sweden’s largest commercial urban farm “Los Perros” (today 2800 m2 big), he realized that one piece was missing though: a restaurant or cafĂ© outlet for his harvest.

One day in 2019 he found the facility at Sölvesborgsgatan, and that was it.

Today he’s doing farming between Sunday and Wednesday and runs the cafĂ© and farm stand from Thursday to Saturday.

Uses everything he grows

Having this set-up, he can use basically everything he grows. He no longer needs to find himself getting up at four o’clock in the morning – harvest, pack, and driving to Bondens Marknad at Drottningtorget, trying to sell as much as possible – before ending the day with perhaps some crops still left. Sometimes trying then to sell the surplus to nearby restaurants, sometimes being lucky, sometimes maybe not.

Delivers to local quality restaurants like Julie, Mineral, Qué, and Lyran are still part of the business, but a lot of his harvest is now also used at Flax. Moreover, customers may buy fresh pumpkins, onions of different sorts, potatoes, apples, zucchini, and more, at a small farm stand next to the entrance.

Buddha Browett recounts all of this after I’ve had my little kimchi and bread moment (which really is quite a joy! The kimchi has a nice combination of a lot of different flavors, it has a lagom heat from the chili and is overall very refreshing.)

Buddha: The menu at Flax is made up of things I like. A lot of it actually has carrots in it, like the kimchi but also a lot of other dishes, because carrot is such a useful vegetable that goes along with a lot.

Anna: Ah, that is very pleasant news for CARROTTRiBE members and USHiRi Magazine readers!

Buddha: If you look at the menu I think there are carrots in all the dishes except the one at the top (he points to a blackboard behind the counter, where different dishes and courses are written in white chalk letters. And yes, I do indeed find for instance one soup, one stew, and one grilled sandwich that all in some way contain carrots.)

Anna: Cool.

Buddha: 👍

Anna: If comparing sauerkraut and kimchi (both fermented vegetables; editor’s note), why kimchi?

Buddha: Oh, well, for me that’s just because of the variations possibilities with kimchi. I like to be able to put in like ginger and chili and that kind of stuff.

Kimchi can be used with almost everything and is considered a staple in the Korean kitchen.

I had kimchi myself for the first time back in 2002 when it was served as a side dish to a bowl of chicken dumplings at “KafĂ© Japan”, in central Gothenburg. Back then kimchi wasn’t that popular or common as it is today in the Swedish food flora, I think. While sushi or thai food at the time had become almost as popular as pizza, kimchi was more like “oh, this is… interesting…. tastes good though!”

Korean culture and lifestyle have made quite an impact on parts of the Western world since then though (with The Squid game, K-Beauty, K-Pop, and Gangnam style, for instance), but exactly how popular kimchi is I’m not quite sure of (since food writing isn’t actually my main pursuit.) But Buddha Browett might know, I figure out, so I decide to ask of his opinion.

Buddha: Kimchi is very popular I think, and it’s getting even more popular all the time now. Our customers really like it!

Fan art

After my visit to Flax, I draw this picture, inspired by the vibe and features of the place. Incorporated in the drawing is the Korean spelling (êč€ìč˜) of kimchi.

Do you wanna try yourself?

If you want to buy your own kimchi or have it with for example a grilled cheese sandwich, you’ll find Flax on Sölvesborgsgatan 10 near Folkets park in Malmö. Opening hours and other information can be found at Flax’s online site.

Clay

Each day I dream of moving to Vienna

Each day you dream of bathing in milk

Each day I dream of bus trips and henna

Each day you dream of bathrobes of silk

While you dream of putting down your roots

I pack my bag and lace my boots

While you dream of hardening your clay

I dream of being far away

Each day I dream of travelling far

Each day you dream of staying in bed

Each day I dream of raising the bar

Each day you dream of clearing your head

Promise me you’ll give your dreams a chance

So you can find the inner peace that you lack

And I’ll keep waiting for the circumstance

Which will allow my hardened clay to crack

And whisk me away

To the milky, bustling cities of Austria

Sword of scary

Toilet / Malmö

Guests at the Coffee Square in Malmö MöllevĂ„ngstorget Sweden can expect the very extra if going to the loo (or should we say the loovre?) during their visit. This “rest room” (no, no rest), referred to by many as “the cave toilet”, offers a mix of musketeer romance, high renaissance art and stuffed birds.

Roddor

Fearless in combat and feels no pain since they dont have a reactive nervesystem which is a great help to continue fighting even when sustained heavy wounds like getting an arm chopped of.The big problem with this is that they often bleed to death by minor injuries when they are not in combat. Healing powers is strong within this group. The god they worship is still unknown.

Gortmass is very attractive to Rodda clans all over the Ushirian landscape since it can be used quick to stop bloodloss.

When outside of combat they tend to be a bit avoidant. Their community usually have strong seductive females that usually long to conquer new slaves to bed from all races of Ushiria. Female Roddor are strong agitators of war and use bodylanguage to invoke adrenaline to the weaker males that are mostly driven by inner urges.

Roddor likes to use their fists when in fights . A big issue for the Roddor is that they grow quickly in numbers but also when it comes to become mature. In earth months it takes 2 months for the young to become mature. The great fistfights and other population reducing sports are popular in the Roddor communities since the biggest issue is to gain food equal to the population.

A not so aggressive sport they perform is “Catch the ring”

“ Stickhat sounds”

The stickhat on the Rodda in red on the picture is also sometimes made of metal and has a ring which makes a sound when the owner twirls his head around when moving. This is considered some sort of sacred ritual yet to be learned about.

Females of he Roddor and community leaders

People in Ushiria was introduced to sexism by the Roddor because of the ways of their community female tribal leaders. Also the artwork of male rats tend to be quite close to the erotic side when they draw and sculpt art based on their seductive leaders.
