Time to spread some pleasant news. Good times are approaching. Yay!! LAH has joined the Bernhard Ensemble/Wien to play more theater of the fearless and entertaining kind. First show will be: ACHT.zehn.EINHALB (18 1/2) - loosely based on a very special italian film director's work.
Premiere 9.10.2012 - OFF Theater, Wien
Preparations for the full-length feature film ZERO CRASH are steaming up. A musical satire about one of our favourite topics - the money system. Expect it to open your mind, expect to see strange things coming out of the fog of finance mumble jumble, expect it to be just great!!
Shooting is expected to start 2013
As the elite is mumbling, gasping and hollering EUROCRISIS!!! all over the place it's time for us to ask our financial experts here at xterkyu for some insights into that damn complicated mess. Here's what they say:
We are witnessing no less than the breakdown of an intrinsically unstable and unsustainable monetary system. All the actions taken so far are not addressing the core problems. Seems like there was something to be learned from the vulture funds' ways to make profits from distressed debt. We recommend their Loan to own strategy to distressed states who have to deal with distressed banks in the current sovereign debt crisis.
Thank's guys, we say. Fascinating. Keep up the good work!
How? Stop the halfwitted repair attemts, let the market do it's thing and very soon most private financial institutions will be in desperate need of help. Now, instead of just bailing them out we should LOAN TO OWN them. More money to rescue banks? Yeah, but put them under control of the only true sovereign in a democracy - the public. That accomplished all over the Eurozone we can go ahead and make shiny bald heads: a generous multilateral 100% haircut clearing all debt held by the then public banks. Hey, it's quite virtual anyway, all this money isn't it? - What would we win? Prosperity? Democracy? Stability? Who knows. What would we loose? A lot of doubtful numbers in books

Wed 16.2.2011 - Festival Motel Nirvana - ROTE FABRIK, Zürich, Switzerland
Very appropriate for the theme in Davos 2011 "Shared Norms for a New Reality" we here at xterkyu share the norm of precognitive moral with the interested public, presenting a reality that is so new, that it hasn't really happened yet in our new streaming-TV magazine GLOBAL GLOBE.
