Nikos Nomicos Says:


Alkis’ Party
a postmortem,
by Nikos Nomicos.

if you think that this life is real, you're mistaken. it's a dream. we all live in dreams, but it's the content of the dream that makes each individual's life different, or sometimes, even special. my dream for Alkis' Party scheduled for the night of Christmas Eve was not a complicated dream, a wish for a sentimental kind of revival of the old days of Factory. it was a simple dream. that all his friends would gather for a last time, have a drink, listen to music, and honour their friend's departure the way HE would like it to happen. a simple, happy dream, by all means. you may say that this was a dream within another larger, unfortunate dream, and that the reality of dreams does not exclude the possibility that a dream within a dream may be shattered. you are right, but actually none of this happened.

a XXXmas party in memory of Alkis















Alkis Efthimiadis is a gay icon in the Athens night life. Unfortunately he is not with us anymore. For those who are not familiar with the Athens gay scene, Alkis is credited for bringing a new era to all of us who were craving to see something different from the existing conservative, hidden gay scene. In 1994 he opened Factory club with Gregory Vallianatos. Factory was the most underground gay club in Greece and maybe in Europe. We all have unforgetable nights in Factory. This Saturday night Factory in Gazi is organizing a XXXmas party. We are all gonna be there. Alkis wishes us to have fun.

Harold Pinter Nobel speech

Harold Pinter condemned the invasion of Iraq:

"a bandit act, an act of blatant state terrorism, demonstrating absolute contempt for the concept of international law. The invasion was an arbitrary military action inspired by a series of lies upon lies and gross manipulation of the media and therefore of the public; an act intended to consolidate American military and economic control of the Middle East masquerading--as a last resort--all other justifications having failed to justify themselves--as liberation. A formidable assertion of military force responsible for the death and mutilation of thousands and thousands of innocent people."

Poetry is not over: an online exhibtion

Poetry is not over reunites young international artists who find or suggest poetry or a kind of oneiric expression in the algorithms, the codes, the complexities of the networks, or more generally the aesthetics of what could be called the computing.

A RAINBOW FOR LONDON

People in London have a reason to celebrate these days. Same sex marriages are legal. It is a victory for all of us who believe that sexuality should not be an obstacle for people having the same rights and benefits. It is a defeat for all those remaining governments who still insist on not passing similar laws and amendments. Mr Karamanlis don't mess with us!
