POSTKARTEN AUS JAPAN – EINE BOTSCHAFT VON KÜNSTLERN AUS DER REGION TÔHOKU Mittwoch,
5. Dezember 2012 – Mittwoch, 16. Januar 2013
Als das schwere Erdbeben, der darauf folgende Tsunami sowie die Nuklearkatastrophe die Region Tôhoku am 11. März 2011 trafen, brachen Energieversorgung, Telefonleitungen, Mobilfunknetze und Internetzugang unmittelbar zusammen. Als Erstes war das japanische Postsystem wieder einsatzbereit, sodass in vielen Fällen die erste Nachricht darüber, dass die Lieben in Sicherheit waren, per Postkarte übermittelt wurde.
from 19th December 2011 ~ 26th February 2012:
We set up the exhibition at the Fukushima Minami Soma Museum.
This is the nearest public museum to Fukushima dai-ishi nuclear power station. We are exhibiting together with Temporary exhibition from Fukushima Museum of Art.

So….you got a goodreads stalker….does this show your stalker-trolls learned to read Ms.Yu?
Yu must be good influence on netrolls.
Dear Anon. Yours,
Yes the goodreads stalkers x3 saga got me fuming. X1 apologised when confronted. X1 (a communist fr california…what a nutcase!) continued stalking me only on goodreads until blocked. X1 is clearly this drug addled moron coming in to defend Huxley’s opinion re: LSD and creative use!
I do not understand why it is always nutcases who want to use other people’s kids and 3rd world orifices to smuggle drugs….I even had one moronic druggy used arguments like “oh..drugs didnt cause this 9 yrs old to get gang rape and used as drug mules…the illegal use of drugs did…”
Oh yeah…that’s right because if only they could just make an honest law abiding living….no drug selling losers who sell to kids in primary school would everr harm anyone ever again over money….and territory and distribution chain….
Those namby pamby morons with smug little #firstworldproblems need to get real and get a life….
So faced with a critique of their designer drug taking bible….this moron came over to say rooollly intelligent stuff!
🙂 i lost my temper…cos I am no saint!
But no….do not expect my goidreads moron stalkers to be literate…they are just more pretentious in their bippity smugness about their insular little lives and have less conscience about the impact if their cheap hits in the overall drug economy!
Cecilia Yu, you’re such a dumb bitch!
Lol. You are such a pathetic loser you cant even use your real name because …..well ….the “dumb bitches”might hunt down via your IP (btw when you comment in wordpress, I can see it straight away your server’s IP no matter what fake name you give yourselve! Your IP is 220.127.116.11 and from there….oh the right bunch of computer geeks can find you….hmmm…within a few street numbers! ) and hand it over to Feds Internet Crime hotline and see if you’ve been up to other kinds of no good imagining you are anonymous online!
But fear not… a pathetic jealous no life mysogynist loser like you probably is quite pathetic and harmless; serving the net while worrying about the size of your mediocre shitake…..(and i am being generous here…hahaha…when I say mediocre and Shitake when referring to your…well….anything of yours..hahaha)

Hi! I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
From Cecilia: I don’t use a captcha because I have enough trouble getting people to comment to the right article…often I find people comment about one article after they roamed around abit so it ends up in another comment..so don’t want to add extra obstacle ! hahaha. Seriously…the natural spam filter wordpress use is good enuff for me. cheers, goodluck! CC
Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board from pinterest and I in finding It really interesting. I am hoping to present my thing again and aid others. Can you help me when I am set up? I hope so.
Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
Hi Denise, I’m using wordpress. Blogengine is okay for shorter bytes. Drupal…lol…if a bunch of non-transparent dutch is doing it ineffectually on Drupal while messing up projects in AFrica…is the only time I came across Drupal driven site….that says it all…it is good if you care about infrastructure over content…but hey….nobody shows up to a site to “admire the infrastructure”!
I have not used B2evolution before but can check it out and ask around…:)….I think the swarm of Gen Zzzz will know…in terms of how it works infra….but….
I had a look and gut feeling…..it is a hell of a lot of work to get to something that is an extension on your existing website…Web development is so sophisticated and High cost/maintenance these days…..unless you are willing to devote a load of time to it….why “reinvent the wheel” again? Of course, if CONTROL is a total issue…then fine, do it this way….
But wordpress works great for me…it is ….like Sushi…easy, yummy, filling, low-fat and healthy….and creativity of presentation is up to your own ability…and no one else can change that! 🙂
P.S Thank you for lovely comments about my design. It is ALL in the content and for that I think I have to constantly thank the wonderful contributions by Artists/Musicians and genuinely thinking and talented individuals all around the world. 🙂
Goodluck. Let me know if I can help in the future.
My dear friend,
That a lovely initiative! Thanks for sharing this ❤
