about 2faced1.com

"2FACED1 is a visionary digital network,  a loose collective with members in Europe, Africa and North America, bound together by what we call ‘stereotypophobia’."


 

Stereotypophobia

“It is all about critical questioning of what identity really is. Would you be the same person in another context? Does society have certain expectations on you based on traditional parameters like class, gender, color, sexual orientation, religious beliefs and so on? And how much do these expectations affect your so-called self? Every forward thinking person are aware of those things, its a gift which  also make you relate to other peoples struggles.”

HOLLYWOOD BULLSHIT AND POSTSTRUCTURALISTIC HEROES

Post date Wed 14 Sep 2011 6:06 PM

VIA MONSTREUX

Once again I’ve come to the conclusion that I hate all uptight innercity parents. Everything is always their fault, my own misery included. But this time, I don’t hate them ‘cause they block the entire sidewalk with their stupid hipster strollers. I hate them because they name their kids silly dog names and creepy hollywoodish shit like Destiny. But now that I listened to KI-C & JoJo’s “All My Life”, my stone hard hateful thug heart melted a little. So I added a societal perspective to my egocentric whining and started this whole name thing perhaps isn’t just silly bullshit. Because even if it feels like a redundant upperclass syndrome when Gwyneth Paltrow and The Beckham couple complains over the difficulty in naming their kids after fruits (Apple) and areas in NYC (Brooklyn), there’re actually some revolutionary tendencies in this shiiiiiet.

I remember when I was was a kiddo and wanted to change my name to Veranda (verandah in english). I thought it was the best name ever, but my parents refused. They didn't want people to think I was a roofed opened porch thingy. I “needed” a name that showed I was a human being. Something like Clara Linn Josephine. But what mom and dad didn’t think of (or probably it was just what they did) was that with such a name, everyone would categorize me as a girl. Something pretty much as constructed and inhumane as a verandah in this society. Because the composition of the letters L-I-N-N constitute a name encoded in a linguistic system. A system that requires a constant maintenance of meanings to make us understand that it’s not a piece of furniture, but something we call a person with a specific sex determination.

Society's dichotomies and categorizations are of course much more complex than that. We’ve had people named Dick, Axel (Shoulder) and Clementine for a long time, so naming a kid to Apple perhaps isn’t that revolutionary. But doesn’t it fuck a little with our structural system of assumptions and knowledge? I would like to see it as an unconscious beginning of a deconstruction of the language.

This summer I’ve met Ira (kid), Alice (dog), Kenneth Svensson (goat), Sigge (kid), Mio (kid) and Milou (kid). Mom thought I’ve joined the IRA and got pretty hysterical when I said I’ve been hanging out with Ira. My psychologist thought Mio was a horse for three weeks and I had to get rid of July’s hotty aka Control Freak who got jealous when I said I’d been out walking with Alice for three hours. Alice, a dog I later described as very beautiful to the Control Freak, but not someone I planned to fuck with since I’m not into bestiality.

And it's all these misunderstandings. These conscious or unconscious things that somehow fuck with the structure of interpretation and understanding. A structure that constantly produces illusions of specific meaning in a system of knowledge and a social construction we call language. Name your kid Mixtape. Let Anna be a (hu)man. Call me woman, call me boy. We’re a bunch of 2FACED1’s who constantly will re-invent and change it's definitions. Because there are no women and there are no boys. We’ve deconstucted the words, they were all just empty illusions. And I promise that you’ll be my post-structural hero when you name your kid Veranda. But you better not buy a fucking hipster stroller.

The best thing about speaking and understanding English like an eight year old is that the lyrics of the songs you're listening to gets much better than they really are. I thought Michaell Jackson sang "I'm fucking with the man in the mirror" until like two years ago. I'm still disappointed with the so called truth. Today's disappointment is Busy Signal. I've always identified myself with his way of describing intimicy in "Comfort Zone". When he sings "Hold me hold hold me, but sometime - get me beer!", I've always been like, yeeeeeah finally someone who understand that it's pretty creepy to lie on a coach and cuddle more than five minutes! But now I had this video with lyrics on and realized that he didn't sing what I thought he did at all! Hold me hold me hold BUT SOMETIME GET ME BEER was instead Hold me Hold me Hold me SO TIGHT YET BABY. Eeeeeeh DIDAPOINTMENT 2.0! Fucking cheesy bitch! No one will ever understand me!

The first sign of autumn has come to Stockholm. At first you'll think you're stalked by a guy in rolled up chimney beanie, rolled up chinos, rolled up anything from WEEKDAY. But then you'll realize it's autum again and all dudes just look the same. And you'll meet them every other meter on Götgatan and every time you'll wonder if that's the dude you fucked three years ago or if it's only Oskar Linnros

Ok nothing has really happened and everything has happened so I give you a hair update instead 'cause that's what bloggers do. So I've cut off my hair again by myself and I'm now looking like a twelve year old psycho version of Aaron Carter feat. The Office Gareth (again). But first I looked more like Keith Flint which was pretty exciting until my psychologist said that I didn't seem to do so well and I realized she thought I've done a Britney and I got Hybris 2.0 and was totally sure that Le Psychologist must be Creepy Stalker Dude because she refered to Britney and my latest blog post was about Britney which means that le Pschycologist reads my blog which is creepy, plus that she trained at the same kickboxing club as me two years ago which is fucking creepy too and creepy 1 plus creepy 2 = MEGA CREEPY so LE PHYCHOLOGIST MUST BE CREEPY STALKER DUDE. But then she wrote Obsessive-Compulsive-Disorder on her witheboard (again). And I ran away from there to a hairdresser who took me back to psycho Aaron Carter Gareth again.

STOCKHOLM PRIDE started today!!! It's like the only time each year where you can drink beer and get intellctual stimulated at the same time. Ok it's maybe not the easiest combo, but it might work for a while if you eat a good dinner. Anyways... The theme for this year's festival is OPENNESS and focusing on how open our society is today and how we can make it better. I'm really excited for this year's program that feels very 2FACED1 by bringing together different perspectives instead of having them as separate identity political elements (which happens too often). It will be a week of discussions from everything from sex, sexual practices and identities to swedish asylum politics and what it is to be considered “Swedish”. Who gets to pass as a man or a woman, and what is the attitude towards those who do not want to be either. 

Check out the program here.

I've got a new neighbour. He plays the best (and loudest) music ever. OVER-EXALTATION! My brain imagined the world's hottest person directly. So I've dreamed about him every night the last week and made up like thousand seduces's scenarios aka bad porn movie from -92.

Just to destroy everything today.

Instead of knocking at the door to this incredible hawthy and ask if he wanted fuck, I fucking facebook stalked him!!!!!! Havn't been that disappointed since I happened to buy non-alcoholic wine instead of real wine last week. Gooosh, dude looked like a trance version of Evan Handler!!! The world is fucking always against me.

Aaron Carter is back (if you see me you'll understand). Have been to summer camp for troubled teenagers. Told them I wasn't a teenager, but they said I acted like one and put me on detox. One week in fucking nowhere without everything you need to survive (in Stockholm). No alcohol, sex, candy, cigarettes, porn, facebook and job obsession. Calle G aka the Swedish king ran away but I was a good kiddo and stayed all week. Walks in the forest, horseback riding, canoeing, healthy food, social training and a lots of books. Got there as Lindsay Lohan. Came home as Jesus Christ. But you don't need to worry. I will never lose miyself. I just have to bury some parts of myself sometimes.

Ok I'm back again. Had to shut down my life for a while. Had some problems to stay inside the hegemonical norms and boundaries last week so I got diagnosed as too slutty, queer and psycho for this society. It's kinda hard to live when you should have been born into one of Gregg Araki's 90's movie's instead of real life.
