Paint balling is so fun! I remember when I went in England for a friend's birthday party, we played against a party of experienced players who bought smoke-bombs. For our first round my team was supposed to defend a wooden church structure where the objective was for the other team to ring the bell. We lost miserably as the other team threw smoke-grenades inside the small building and we were all coughing and shooting blindly into the open door.
To live without dead time means to embody a great refusal, to find pleasure in struggle, to transform every moment of existence into a repudiation of the consumerist nightmare and an affirmation of revolutionary possibility. A semester, a year, a decade without Big Macs, Frappucinos and World of Warcraft but overflowing with midnight adventures of blackspotted billboards, guerrilla gardening and spectacular synchronized global memewar actions. Imagine if a huge number of us start living in this way, turning daily life itself into a form of resistance that re-enchants the city and reawakens the promise of a people’s insurrection. The way forward is through this kind of radical play.

first image artist kevin cyr built this pedal-powered camper for one in april 2008. the camper sits on a modified bike frame with two back wheel and one up front. the rider sits on the bike and can pedal around, moving the camper from place to place. inside the camper features all the amenities needed in a small and compact envelope. the sculptural piece also became a subject in many of cyr’s paintings. the design is perfect for a solo holiday and will definetly turn some heads along the way. http://www.kevincyr.net <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
