NEWS FROM STRAFTANZ ACTUAL
We are Straftanz. We are people without morale and discipline and yet people adore us when we sagaciously state the wrong. We are the soft concrete that offers good rest for your weary brains.

Für einen Deutsch denkenden Deutschen klingst du wie ein bekiffter Hippie. Das schrieb Sami, als ich mich auf Facebook darüber wunderte, dass Deutsche, die diesen Blog verfolgen, häufig nicht ganz ernst nehmen wollen was ich da schreibe. "Der schreibt ja ganz gut, aber das kann er so nicht meinen." sagen die gerne. …Read more
"In the face of contemporary pecksniffian anaesthesia we'll erect a whole gallery of forebears, heros who carried on the struggle against bad consciousness but still knew how to party, a genial gene pool, a rare and difficult category to define, great minds not just for Truth but for the truth …Read more
