2FACED1.com shows one persons two different faces in photos;
Persona 1: WHAT YOU WANT TO BE CONSIDERED AS
Persona 2: WHAT YOU FEAR TO BE CONSIDERED AS
This leads to a discussion about stereotypes and inner fears of getting misunderstood by the surroundings. Thoughts that every thinking modern day person does reflect upon. We're asking every day people from an innercity context where old categories as ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class are reassessed, why they choose to look like they do. We’re diggin' deep, peeling off garments, codes and attributes. We’re searching for transnational identities - is the conclusion that we choose whoever we want to be today?!
A 2FACED1 STATE OF MIND
A 2FACED1 is highly aware of existing stereotypes related to your own ethnicity, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and class. You’re trying to avoid them but sometimes also play with them to make people think twice about who you are. Two faced doesn’t mean anything negative here, it explains the double folded view you have on identity if you’re not the existing norm. Self awareness is a gift, because it also helps you to understand other peoples situations better. To be a 2FACED1 is to have the feet in different worlds, be able to move between them but feel rather at home in that space in between. You've stepped out of your comfort zone and has become one of the new identities where ol' categories are mashed up and rootlessness and non-given identity just means major possibilities.
2FACED1 is a state of mind, 2FACED1.com is a display-window for this mindset and the network of 2FACED1 includes all of you progressive non-stereotypes with a double perspective on identity.

OMG it's almost Xmas and I hate Xmas and everyone always tries to be so nice and I'm against niceness so this is really not the time of my life. Last year I tried to make it a little bit more exciting so I fucked Santa but then someone told me that Santa was Uncle John and it didn't feel so fun anymore.
Sham demoracies have many ugly tricks to maintain unequal power relations. One is the claiming to be a democratic society, but to advocate market economy aka capitalism as the only political alternative. Another is to internalize Monarchy aka elitism as a vital element for (a national) affinity. And even though I think it’s quite entertaining when the Swedish King shows that he’s just an ordinary douche who dresses in trash (bags) and buys strippers for tax money, I can ensure you that I’m totally against monarchy. Because justifing Monarchy is like pleading for a rebuilding of the Institution Of Race Biology and to propagate for heterosexism at the same time. So while the horrible glorification of princes, princesses, kings and queens continues, The Ultimate Guide To Survive Life During Wartime (Capitalism) is once again here to your rescue.
It’s time for Gypsie's Mega Trip's Survival Kit 3 - FUCK THE MONARCHY!
The Kings and Queens may seem secured by the Royal Prerogative that gives them immunity. But according to extremely reliable sources, Gypsie’s Mega Trip knows it doesn’t mean that they’re immune to everything… Therefore, an easy way to fuck with the Monarchy is to literally fuck the Monarchy. Dear people, the time has come.
FUCK THE MONARCHY – GIVE THE ROYALTIES AN STD!
I don’t know how it works in other countries, but in Sweden it’s kinda easy. Not just because the Swedish King likes to have sex ouside his royal monogamous marriage. But because if you get an STD in Sweden you have to call everyone you slept with, or let the STD-clinic send an anonymous, for example, chlamydia letter. So next time you get chlamydia, gonorrhea or whatever - report that you fucked the King. I promise that you’ll feel much better when you know that your stupidiy atleast gave an opportunity to fuck with the royal immunity!
N.B! – This should not be seen as an advocacy of sex without protection. Safe Sex - Safe Life as DR ALBAN said.
Got a bootycall at 4 A.M. Thought I'd made it clear that I don't fuck after midnight anymore. Peoplelike meneeds a80-year-old's circadian rhythm, alcohol ban anda non-spontaneous lifestyle. Those whocame to thiseminentsolution tomy life had forgottenthat it's impossibleto livelike that so my newhome isnowin aretirement home. And everyone herethinks I'ma piratebecause ofmytattoosso now I don't only have a boring life, I'mbulliedtoo. Perfect. Gonna be a much more funcioning human being now.
I'm on rehab in the woods again. More exciting this time though cuz it's moose-hunting-time in Sweden now. So everytime me and my moose-long legs go out it's like Scary Movie 167. I'm all alone with my blonde stupid hair surrounded by psycophathic men with weapons who wanna kill everything that moves. But you can relax. There won't be anymore dead girls. I'm writing this story and that means we got weapons.
GOSH, the libary was closed and I can't work in my studio today so now I'm sitting in a Café on South Side and I'm totally scared to death. I've been scared of this Café sect forever (read: Yngves-tiden om du är från LKPG) and now they're playing Shout Out Louds and I'm too afraid to drink my coffee cuz I think it might turn me into Hank Moody, Bret Easton Ellis, Martin Kellerman or any other nice, unnice, cultivated, dysfunctional asshole. And if I won't become one of them I will most certainly turn into the white middle-(cl)assy asshole I should have been, start to like "difficult" poetry and forget all about intersectional perspectives. Ok, I'm outta here now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What no one thought would happen has now happened = I've got myself a fancy phone. And by that I mean the whole package! A real thingy with Internet and other cool stuff! So now my dear lovers and haters: Megalomania has reached a whole new level cuz I'VE STARTED TWITTERING!!! Right now it may look like I'm Twitter's most bullied jerk but 50 cent will start following me any second and then we're gonna have cybersex and (twitter)run the world together.
Last Friday was too fun so I broke all my rules, fucked a historian who stole my creativity and now I'm sick, bored and stupid at the same time which is the worst combo ever. But back to last Friday... I found myself clubbing with old communist, poet and writer Stig Larsson. And even if those oldies always are pretty obstinate, I must say it's impressive to not be dead when you are both a cynical writer and have been out clubbing for forty years. I mean, I'm notnearly ascynicalas himand I'msuicidalalmostevery Sundayandevery timeI watchthe news.
is professor in the discrepence between (hu)man and chaos and writer of The Uncensored Version Of Life.
GYPSIE'S MEGA TRIP is style, riots and dirty talk. A mix of Nietzsche with a tramp stamp and Vatos Locos poststructural manifest. It’s the extended version of teen angst, a social experiment and the reinvention of life.
