A fruit is a space ship transportion a tree to another world, one small step for a piece of fruit one Giant step for a tree, one tiny step for a civilization. One roll of a dice, one swath of glow, and some red can of paint, and a deadly ocean to carry it all away. It's the hot turmoil, the lunar landscape of an apple skin.

The 3ed Item of the night is: # DELEUZE /// The Body as a Desiring Machine by the The Funambulist.
In this article The fuambulist explains Gilles Deleuze & Felix Guattari use of the Body Without Organs, or the bwo. The funambalist starts by high lighting the historical origen of the concept from Antonin Artaud to William Burroughs to Gilles Deleuze & Felix Guattari, then he highlights the particular quality of the BWO called Desiring Machine. The bwo is not divided up into organs instead it is divided into functions called desiring machines. Each section of a body can be thought of as serving many functions and each function is then defined interims of its desire and its material mechanism, hents desiring machine. This is distinguished in contrast to thinking of the sections of a body as organs, or sections with one or a certain limited set of functions. The mouth that eats is one desiring machine with your nose that smells food, the mouth that pulls slivers out of you’re hand is another desiring machine but for Gilles Deleuze & Felix Guattari they are not the same organ but are sections of a larger body with out organs. One desiering machine might include your nose that smells or you’re hand that is momentarily joined with you’re teeth separating the sliver from the other body.
The main point of this article seems to be to show the history of the concept of the bwo and to give a brief introduction to the use of the concept.
The 4th Item of the night is: Globalisation: my definition & Three major forms.(a word from the Editor)
Globalization, I want to say is any totalizing pattern that expanse power or influence toward a global limit, ether by central control over a wide range of activities or through the propagation of a single pattern or activity accost the whole of the earth. This totalizing pattern, or globalization, is an abstract form that can be the pattern of any number of social, governmental, or financial institution. That is that any institution can be referred to as globalism or globalised if it ether propagates its self toward the covering or circling of the entire globe or if it organizes a multiplicity of patrons from one centralized intelligence.
There is a corporate globalism that extends manufacturing and distribution of commodities around the globe, there is a governmental globalism that organizes the patterns of social behavior and standardizes law code around the world, this might include business law, environmental law, or social law, and then there’s cultural globalism that distributes patterns of behavior and cultural norms around the world. Each of these three forms of globalization are interconnected and usually the extension of one means the extension of the others; for instance when corporations are globalized they effect influence over national economies causing those nations to write policy in response, as in the case of tariffs, or trade taxes. Also there are organizations like the WTO (the world trade organization) that enforce trade agreements that are in effect standardized law code that exceeds the borders of any individual nation. Both the law codes of international trade organizations and the economic changes that corporations bring to the nations of the world have profound effects on culture. The commodities that corporations produce are sold around the world and profoundly change the look, and emotional affect of the people that use them. They also determine the kinds of employment opportunity that are open to the people of the nations where they are located, but opportunity might be a bad word to use here because if a none-local corporation out competes the local organizations then the local organizations will go out of business living the none-local corporation as the only option to the citizens of the nation.
The last Item of the night is: Gogol Bordello on Globalisation.
