Hello there! My name is Simon Break and I am THE EUROPEAN.

After a long silence due to the fact that I have to make money so I can eat and not be homeless, I’m back with PHASE 2 of this great project you all love with such fierce devotion! The exciting elements of Phase 2 are:

  • This beautiful new website, based on the WordPress platform
  • A new EP series called ANTI-PATTERNS
  • A headline gig in London on March 11th with AMAZING special guests
  • New videos
  • Other new things

In the next few days I’m going to be posting more information about all these exciting topics, so make sure to add my site to your favourites! Or your RSS reader! And follow me on twitter! Oh, and buy my records!

Guilt by association

From Heidegger, Hitler’s ‘spiritual guide’ on The Guardian newspaper’s discussion board Comment is free:

From Tag (metadata) on Wikipedia:

In a traditional hierarchical system (taxonomy), the designer sets out a limited number of terms to use for classification, and there is one correct way to classify each item. In a tagging system, there are an unlimited number of ways to classify an item, and there is no “wrong” choice. Instead of belonging to one category, an item may have several different tags.
