Welcome !! A Call to Participants & "Faits Divers & Fate's Divers"

I started this blog as a site where poets, artists, Visual Poets, Mail Artists, researchers, essayists, reviewers, artist-ragers, zine makers, comix, graffiti makers may have a place to contribute and display works which express their visions of the historical and contemporary interelated lives of Anarchy & the Arts--
This site is for any persons who are actively interested in and working in these areas
Theoretical letters are welcome, stories, photos, anything which
investigates the everyday all around one with a questioning Anarkeyological spirit & energy. Insight and Incite!
If you are interested please contact me at



Since to an American ear and reader the homophonic punning possibilities of the title "Faits Divers" in French are completely absent, IL Maestro di "PAROLE IN LIBERACE" Professore G-A Vidiamodopo suggests instead the use of an American homophonic translation, in order to keep alive the sense of
"Une Joie de Vivre qui se trouve a travers les Jeux du Mots."
(A Joy of Life found through Plays on Words)

--and now allow me to turn over the podium to our illustrious and well-beloved colleague, Il Maestro, Giulio Agosto di Vidiamodopo--

the Fondatore, who has given us the eternally generative legacy of his never-to-exhausted "Grand Song of the Open Piano" under the sign of his immortal


echoes of which one may find in all manifestations Visual Sonic Visceral which in their very most particulate, singular and also massed, on-flowing wave existences acknowledge the inspiring and influential, ceaselessly experimenting presence of Il Maestro among their notations of Found and Accidental scores . .

Then, with a magnificent flourish, Il Maestro di Parole in Liberace enters stage left and announces the entry into the world of the "Faits Divers--Fates' Divers"--

Special Forces' Lieutenant X announces the Vernissage of his "Celestial Snuff Films" at Galeria Gore,Friday, 19:00-24:00 hr. Combining his Fighter Jet's elegantly enhanced and edited videos with his own high powered zoom photos and infra red images, the young hero creates the "Theater of Certain Death" as seen by both the "Omniscient Eye's View from Above," and the "subjective focus on the Eroticism of the Subject's Snuffing on the ground."

Exactly at 8, the New American Extreme Experimental Fascist Poets' opening salvo of "Militarized Morphemes" created Pure Terror. Renditioning subjects from the audience using Chance Operations, the Poets undertook "Interrogations of Parole" via the branding of each Tongue as a Forbidden Langue. By making speech mute, projected words announced, the subject existed now only as name brands of material language.

from Nouvelles en trois lignes/Three Line News Items/ Short Stories

Feneon created the simultaneous "news/"stories" of his Nouvelles
with perhaps "more in mind" than his own punning use of the Faits Divers' Nouvelles en trois lignes--

he may have been thinking also of the example of Gusrave Flaubert
who several decades earlier had created out of a provincial journal’s Faits Divers the novel Madame Bovary:

“Delphine Delamare, 27, wife of a medical officer in Ry, displayed insufficient austerity. Worse, she ran up debts. To avoid paying them, she took poison.”

Nurse Elise Bachmann, whose day off was yesterday, put
on a public display of insanity.

A complaint was sworn by the Persian physician Djai Khan
against a compatriot who had stolen from him a tiara.

A dozen hawkers who had been announcing news of a
nonexistent anarchist bombing at the Madeleine have
been arrested.

A certain madwoman arrested downtown falsely claimed
to be nurse Elise Bachmann. The latter is perfectly sane.

On Place du Pantheon, a heated group of voters attempted
to roast an effigy of M. Auffray, the losing candidate. They
were dispersed.

Arrested in Saint-Germain for petty theft, Joël Guilbert
drank sublimate. He was detoxified, but died yesterday of
delirium tremens.

The photographer Joachim Berthoud could not get over the
death of his wife. He killed himself in Fontanay-sous-Bois.

Reverend Andrieux, of Roannes, near Aurillac, whom a
pitiless husband perforated Wednesday with two rifle
shots, died last night.

In political disagreements, M. Begouen, journalist, and
M. Bepmale, MP, had called one another "thief" and
"liar." They have reconciled.

In this issue we take a look at massacre of Gaza, the terrible toll and the work of AIPAC in garnering congressional support of the criminal actions of the Israeli military.Review Protests of AIPAC in San Francisco in early December, then a larger protest in late January (Post-Gaza attack) in New York.

gazaGaza and AIPAC

The Gaza-based Palestinian Centre For Human Rights (PCHR) puts the death toll at 1,285, with nearly 70% of the dead civilian. 280 were children. 111 were women. Over 4,000 injured, many with life-long debilitating injuries, including over 1,000 children and over 700 women. The damage to the infrastructure of Gaza is beyond belief. 2,700 buildings damaged or destroyed.

AIPAC did its best to garner political support the carnage, to stall efforts toward a cease-fire (as it did during the war on Lebanon), to blame the victims. An AIPAC-sponsored bill passed, defending this attack as "self-defense", passed the Senate by unanimous consent and the House with only 5 voting No and 27 voting "Present". (If your congressperson was one of the 32, please take the time to thank them... see the roll call here). See our Gaza and AIPAC page.

While most politicians blindly supported Israeli actions, there were some notable exceptions. Rep. Dennis Kucinich called for an investigation of possible violations of Arms Export Control Act. More importantly, grassroots action across the country protested Israeli actions. In the Bay Area, dozens of protests took place in those three weeks. It was clear that Israel was losing support on the American street, if not in the US Congress. It is the power of the people fighting for justice that will eventually create a change in US policy.

protests AIPAC Protests- From San Francisco to New York!

San Francisco Protest, Dec 2008 San Francisco, December 9, 2008
At this protest, organized by Stop AIPAC, we had about a hundred folks that turned out to protest their  extremist policies at an AIPAC event that took place at the Marriot Hotel. As usual, the protesters were a diverse group demanding a change in US policy that will lead to peace with justice. Pics and more here.

Times Square, January 29, 2009nyprotest09
The post-Gaza massacre event organized mostly by local students, brought out a larger crowd of some 250 people and ended with the blockade of the front doors of the Marriot Hotel by 10 determined protesters, who were arrested and spent a night in jail. This is a great way to start the year. Our goal is to have many of the AIPAC events that take around the country confronted by people who will not tolerate their political leaders in a relationship with a lobby for War.
