Before the Law

Haven’t seen my favorite Kafka quote popup in a quite a while on my feed. Definitely something I’ve always had in my brain ever since stumbling upon Kafka years ago.

"What do you want to know now?" asks the doorkeeper; "you are insatiable." "Everyone strives to reach the Law," says the man, "so how does it happen that for all these many years no one but myself has ever begged for admittance?" The doorkeeper recognizes that the man has reached his end, and to let his failing senses catch the words, roars in his ear: "No one else could ever be admitted here, since this gate was made only for you. I am now going to shut it.

It’s a myth that elephants are clever because they can paint. Please don’t think they are gifted or that it’s cute to watch this form of tourist ‘entertainment’. Here’s a few facts you need to know:

❖Elephants endure months of physical abuse to learn how to hold a paint brush, draw a straight line and paint flowers and leaves on trees


❖For years they then paint the same repetitive painting over and over again, every single day, sometimes twice or three times a day


❖When training an elephant to paint, a sharp metal bull hook or nail is used to guide the paintbrush


❖When the elephant paints incorrectly they are beaten as punishment, often the hook is rammed into the elephants ear or they are hit on their head or trunk


❖Look for scars or beatings on the top of an elephants head or trunk from metal bull hooks used to train elephants for human ‘entertainment’

Some claim these paintings go back to help with elephants care. Not so true, this is for tourism and to make money from these elephants that (unless one is hurt or mother was shot) should not be in captivity.

❖Please don’t buy elephant paintings, think of the abuse the elephants have endured their entire lives before painting the perfect picture


❖Please forward our website and tell friends NOT to buy elephant paintings

. (I added the picture of one being ‘made’ to paint…because I think some people need to see exactly what ‘painting elephants’  actually are) The first picture is of course how elephants should be in their natural surroundings. Please stop posting elephants painting and gifs because it is NOT cute it is abuse and get educated on animal rights…I do hope these countries that allow this are banned from doing this soon.

Galcher Lustwerk - Nu Day EP

Galcher Lustwerk follows up his killer White Material release with this ultra laid back, vinyl only EP on UK label Tsuba Limited. The third and fourth tracks showcase the ex-hip hop artists’ vocal talents. Be sure to check his Resident Advisor mix from last week, its full of unreleased material.

Cool grooves
