Hot Athens

Hot Athens
Hot Athens started on twitter & facebook on July 5, 2017. Please check new entries on the blog’s first page.

Now that Athens is so hot (metaphorically & literally) I’ d like to start a blog called Hot Athens. It would include international poetry gossip, indigenous vanity, and the humble comments of the many.

Athens is a city of doomed singularities. In other words, you invent me as much as I invent you.

In my hot Athenian blog I would also include frictions between statues & curators, private donors & the mayor, women & anarchists.

I would transcribe talks about poetry as the new geography, art as the new everything, politics as the new tenderness, queer as the new establishment. I would rephrase these in a thousand different ways, and create an amalgam of new athenian folktales.

Hot Athens is a non existent blog about temperature and a city, about nihilism going wild, and the restoration of rot.
To become fungus would be the ultimate fantasy.

They say spells are central to the resistant politics. Hot Athens would be the archive of the most outrageous, incongruous, hedonistic or grotesque spells ever uttered by a city to its residents, visitors, and rulers. By the end of the day, we would all become plagiarists.

The visit of CA Conrad in Athens would make the headlines of my lunar, fictive blog Hot Athens.
I would publish an exclusive interview with him about (Soma)tic Poetry Rituals, poems, glitter, wars and ghosts.
I would ask him to make a deviant wish for us all. We would stay awake all night at the Public Garden.

Hot Athens would be a joke, when cold.
But temperatures are journals and journals can be fake, and I might have been a fake too.

Today Hot Athens underwent a sex change.
Blogs are not bodies but bodies can be reflected on them like laws.

If I wrote Hot Athens everyday, I’d be a very allegorical person.
I’d meet allegorical bodies of all types and sizes, ageing and in the making, unfiltered.
I’d tag their feminist giant snakes, garments & narrow paths.

When Athens was exceedingly Hot, Fragments From a Lover’s Discourse resonated with so many different sensations, truths, delights that we were transported and fulfilled, completely surrounded by language.

Όταν η Αθήνα ήταν υπέρμετρα Καυτή, οι τόσο διαφορετικές αισθήσεις, αλήθειες, απολαύσεις που αντηχούσαν τα Αποσπάσματα του Ερωτικού Λόγου μας καταγοήτευαν και ικανοποιούσαν, ενώ μας περικύκλωνε από παντού η γλώσσα.

Hot Athens is the opposite of Athens.

Hot Athens is a password for descent & delight.

Hot Athens claims Lethe & Lynx.

Hot Athens sounds like a fluorescent nylon toy.

Latest obsession: can I appropriate the Astro Poets’s tweets, and make a living as an Astro Poet correspondent in Athens?

As all imaginary blogs, Hot Athens doesn’t rely on facts but fables.

Hot Athens’ logo is the owl whose parts are unknown or irrelevant, see “queer mythical disguise” or “I can’t think of anything that can make me —”.

Fill the gap:

Όπως όλα τα φανταστικά ιστολόγια, το Hot Athens δεν εξαρτάται από γεγονότα αλλά μύθους.

Λογότυπο του Hot Athens είναι το σώμα της κουκουβάγιας με τα άγνωστα ή άσχετα μέρη, βλέπε «αλλόκοτη μυθική μεταμφίεση» ή «δεν μπορώ να σκεφτώ κάτι που να με κάνει να …».

Συμπληρώστε το κενό:


Imaginary blogs are known for their incongruous saying.

Τα φανταστικά ιστολόγια είναι γνωστά για τα ασυνάρτητα γνωμικά τους.

Hot Athens welcomes 2018, the year of the owl.

Το Hot Athens καλωσορίζει το 2018, τη χρονιά της κουκουβάγιας.

The owl says it’s false to present as an imagination something that in reality could just be a mutation.

Η κουκουβάγια λέει ότι είναι λάθος να παρουσιάζεις σαν φαντασία κάτι που στην πραγματικότητα δεν είναι παρά μετάλλαξη.

Hot Athens will be the hottest blog ever: interpersonal, inter-generational, international, intergalactic.

Το Hot Athens θα είναι το καυτότερο ιστολόγιο όλων των εποχών: διαπροσωπικό, διαγενεακό, διεθνές, διαγαλακτικό.


Amidst digital chaos Hot Athens is easy to spot.
It is the blank blog, the black blog, a hypothesis.
Might be also a strategic plan, like not owing a smart phone.

Το Hot Athens διακρίνεται εύκολα στο ψηφιακό χάος.
Είναι το κενό ιστολόγιο, το μαύρο ιστολόγιο, μια υπόθεση.
Θα μπορούσε ακόμα να είναι ένα στρατηγικό πλάνο, όπως είναι το να μην έχεις έξυπνο τηλέφωνο.
