At that time Blixa was in a constant cocaine delirium. He worked as a film projectionist at the Tali cinema at Kottbusser Damm. Today it’s the Moviemento. They only played “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” The cinema was run by Elsa Maxwell and Blixa. They never paid the film distributor, so they had to give the cinema one day. Any cash that came in went straight up their noses. Back then, cocaine, wasn’t all that much cheaper than it is today. It was a total state of paranoia. I hardly ever drank alcohol back then, and had only just learned to roll a cigarette so that I could roll a joint. After the film ended I sometimes had to go through the aisles with a flashlight because Blixa was too paranoid to check for himself whether there would still be people, or as Blixa feared, hiding somewhere. That was all before the Neubauten.

so i had the most wonderful day/evening today
i arrived at the venue(Huset i Magstræde) which is a 15 minutes bus ride and walk from where i live at 3 o’clock.i walked up and down the stairs in boredom, but then i met Martina, Blixa’s cellist. she was very kind and said i could go with her to the stage itself and see the soundcheck. And so we did, the Messer Quartet string girls played so beautiful. i met lars top galia from sort sol and sods, he is part of ArtFreq. who booked the concert. a couple of hours went, teho arrived and was very nice and happy.AND THEN BLIXA ARRIVED. actually i was sitting in a chair looking at my phone, texting auntie gorgo on facebook, when suddenly a huge man in a long black coat came in and walked up to the stage. blixa! the soundcheck was all very beautiful, and also entertaining because blixa was saying the funniest things like ‘i dont need bass! my voice has enough bass!’ <3 then i when they were finished blixa drove off to some gourmet restaurent and i went down to eat with the messer quartet and the artfreq people. then when there was half an hour until the show started i went to wait in front of the door, and there were my two friends who were also gonna se the show. we got in when they opened and we sat on the front row, i got the seat right in front of blixa, probably the best seat! then the concert started and it was truly outrageous. after the show i spoke to lars about meeting blixa. he said that there could be an opportunity if i waited around. so i did! then lars had to go down and meet blixa, and he told me i could go with him -backstage. so i did, and who did we find, sitting on the stairs? blixa! he was about to leave through the door when i said ‘blixa!’ and he turned around and looked at me. ‘thank you s much for everything’ i said. he shook my hand and said ‘thank you for your support and attention’. i whispered ‘i love you’ and he said ‘thank you’. then he left and i said goodbye to martina and went home.
such a lovely day.

So cold. So very cold. My eternal grief, it craves ze cocoa, but only ze darkest und richest of cocoas. So, here ist mein technique for making ze cocoa zat is as dark as ze despair which envelopes the heart of all zose who are afflicted by genius.
[It is assumed zat you will be making zis cocoa for only yourself, unless you have gathered together a group of companions who are as despairing as are you (NOT UNRUH). If so, scale ze recipe up accordingly, using ze divine math which upholds ze pillars of ze universe.]
Into a saucepan made from iron as dense und black like ze heart of a neutron star, put two big spoonfuls of sugar. (If you are truly expert in ze ways of nihilism, leave out ze sugar, but zis it not for ein amateur.) Zen also put in two big spoonfuls of cocoa. It must be dutch process cocoa, ze darkest cocoa known to man. Other cocoas are like Muzak—ubiquitous and weakening of ze soul. You may also add cinnamon.
Add one or two spoonfuls of water und stir until ze mixture becomes a paste. Cook on ze stove over a low flame, stirring constantly, while ruminating on ze imminent downfall of civilization. When ze mixture has bubbled for zwei minuten, slowly pour in one und one half cups of milk, stirring to completely mix ze bubbling sugar mixture. Allow ze cocoa to heat thoroughly while continuing to stir. Scrape any sugar mixture from ze sides und bottom of ze pan to incorporate.
At zis point you may add some vanilla. ”But Blixa, isn’t vanilla a vainglorious luxury enjoyed only by the weak?” you might ask. NEIN. Vanilla is ze grace note which sets off ze unknowable depths of ze cocoa. Denial of ze body as a way of enlightenment is a wicker man in a blindfold. Set him on fire! Put ze vanilla in ze cocoa! It is ze only way.
Drink your cocoa while wrapped in ein soft blanket und listening to a tape loop of garbage trucks slowly masticating zeir cargo. Clank, clank; ze dregs of consumerism are devoured. Slowly you will feel yourself filled with ze warmth of revolution (und cocoa).

Question with 9 notes
merrywrath asked: What is beauty? This question has puzzled scholars and scientists for centuries, but this afternoon while making a fresh cup of coffee I had a spiritual epiphany which answers the question. Beauty is when my lips are wearing dark red lipstick and leaving marks on an area of Blixa Bargeld which is only mentioned in whispers whilst fully aroused. Do you agree with the image revealed to me by heaven itself?
I think you’ll have to compete with a lot of people who thought it was their lips that should be leaving marks on Blixa Bargeld’s personal regions!
