Citations, sites, quotas and stuff that seem to be non-neglecteble. A more non-conform way to spy on the trends and the world.
Finibus Bonorum et Malorum is a work from Cicero. Chunks of this is a part of the Lorem ipsum - the dummytexts that is used in almost every sketch that creatives in advertising use.



Most of the times there are rather boring surfing along on the Net's free spaces. Old vanitysites and cranked fan-sites. But sometimes you find a site that totally blew you off your feet. Elena is a young woman in Russia, and as her father is nuclear-physician she was one of the children who lived through the meltdown of Chernobyl in 1986. I too remember it very well. The fear and all the pollution that fell down even here.

Elena is riding a Kawasaki Ninja and takes trips into the closed area, she document the on-going catastrophe with her camera and puts it up in her site Ghost Town. It's truly fascinating to witness the mess, the totally death of a huge part of the land through her eyes. "The most exciting thing about rides in Ghosttown is to hit a red line on my bike's tacho and break this silence with roar of a wounded dinosaur and then to close throttle and listen how all those ghosts cursing 1100cc kawasaki engin." - and she goes there both for pleasure but also in a mood of sadness, telling about the catastrophe and the life before Chernobyl really was Wormwood.
