PART LXVII
Grownupism! 1Day, When I Grow Up!

So, as usual, I wuz sittin' an stinkin bout the days gittin shorter an the weather gittin chillier!
Me an my pardnurs always know wut that meens!
It meens the dragon-teechers are startin to rise up after their summer sleep.
Yuk!
The dragon-teechers are kinda like bears, only they hibernate in the summer to be sure they have the power to harass alla us kids, all over agin an not for a little while either, but for a whole century, which they call a skool year!
Ha!
Dragon-teechers never git sick, they jes git ol an learn new wayz to do kid harassement! They call it teachin!
An sum of em, are reel, reel good at it too!
I mean reel good!
I also see em paintin an fixin the dungeon skool too, cause you know the dungeon skool keepers are in cahoots with the dragon skool-teechers!
Whatta team!
They work so well together, they shudda been in the Olympics this summer!
But no, they wanna keep their child harassement under cover, as much as possible!
But wut we kids find kinda strange, is the perents are workin with 'em!
I meen, like day an nite with em!
Go to school, do your homework, behave yourself, an on an on an' on!
Us kids feel like walkin, eatin, talkin kid computers! Or robots or sumthin like that!
Well, if were lucky, alla us kidsll grow up, cause that seems like the only way to escape this edumacation torture stuff!
Well, I made it through all these years, so I guess I kin keep on doin' it!?
Man, I sure hope so!? Plus, I have to!
All this skool beginnin is depressin stuff an it's wearin me out -
So, Im gonna sey
Gnite an maybe when I wake up, it wuz all a bad dream an its reely only the beginnin a summer!?
I luv you
Gnite

PART LXVII
Erwachsensein! Eines Tages, wenn ich erwachsen werde!

Also, wie üblich war ich am Sitz'n und Stink'n darüba, dass die Tage kürzer werd'n und das Wetter kühler wird!
Ich und meine Kumpels wiss'n imma, was das heißt!
Es bedeutet, dass die Drachenlehrer anfang'n, sich aus ihrem Sommerschlaf zu erheb'n.
Igitt!
Die Drachenlehrer sind irgendwie wie Bären, nur dass die im Sommer Winterschlaf halt'n, um sicher zu geh'n, dass sie Kraft hab'n, um uns Kinder alle zu quäl'n, wieder und wieder und bloß nich' zu kurz, sondern für'n ganzes Jahrhundert, was bei ihnen ein Schuljahr heißt!
Ha!
Drachenlehrer werd'n nie krank, sie werd'n nur alt und lern'n neue Arten von Kinderschikane!
Das nenn'n die Unterricht'n!
Und einige von ihnen sind darin auch wirklich echt gut!
Ich mein, richtig gut!
Ich seh auch, wie sie die Kerkerschule streich'n und reparier'n, weil man weiß, dass die Kerkerschulhausmeister mit den Drachenlehrern unter einer Decke steck'n!
Was'n Team!
Die arbeit'n so gut zusamm', die hätten an Olympia diesen Sommer teilnehm'n könn'n!
Aber nein, die wollen ihre Kinderschikaniererei geheim halt'n, so gut es geht!
Aber was wir Kinder merkwürdig find'n, ist, dass die Eltern mit ihnen zusamm' arbeit'n!
Ich mein, mit ihnen, wie Tag und Nacht!
"Geh zur Schule, mach deine Hausaufgaben, benimm dich", und so weiter und so weiter und so weiter!
Wir Kinder komm' uns vor wie laufende, essende, sprechende Kindercomputer! Oder Roboter oder sowas ähnliches!
Also, wenn wir Glück hab'n, werd'n wir Kinder alle erwachsen werd'n, weil das der einzige Weg zu sein scheint, diesem Erziehungstorturzeugs zu entkommen!
Naja, ich hab's die ganzen letzten Jahre geschafft, also denk ich ma', kann ich auch noch weiter durchhalt'n!?
Mann, das hoff ich fest!? Außerdem muss ich ja wohl!
Dieser ganze Schulbeginnkram is' deprimierendes Zeugs und erschöpft mich -
Also sag ich ma' 'Nacht, und wenn ich wach werd, war das alles ein böser Traum und es is' nur der Anfang vom Sommer!?
Hab euch lieb
'Nacht

About fountainhead

Griffith Prof. Donald Muldrow
(Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre/Black International Cinema Berlin/The Collegium - Forum & Television Program Berlin/Cultural Zephyr e.V.)

Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre is a production, performance and distribution unit, which was initiated and developed by Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith and Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith, both experienced artists from the U.S.A.
Fountainhead® engages people from various national, cultural, ethnic, socio-economic, religious backgrounds, and sexual identities, and works in a variety of artistic and cultural areas, with the goal of creating, experiencing and communicating intercultural exchange within its projects and to the world community.
Since its founding in 1980, Berlin/Germany, Fountainhead® has presented a variety of international, intercultural and interdisciplinary productions in the areas of dance, theatre, film festivals, television programming, film distribution, publications, seminars, exhibitions, workshops and musical presentations.
One of the productions is the annually presented Black International Cinema Berlin, which was founded by Fountainhead® in 1986 in Berlin/Germany and since then, has been produced and directed by Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre on a regular basis in Berlin/Germany, other European and US-American cities.
The festival screens cinema from the African Diaspora and other films from varied intercultural backgrounds or perspectives.

Black International Cinema Berlin originated from the Black Cultural Festival, which was produced and directed by Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre in 1986 for the first time in Europe, a 3-week event in Berlin, which presented the contributions of Black people to world culture through film, theater, dance, music, workshops and seminars, and was an homage to the legendary tap dancer, Carnell Lyons.
The venues were the Theatermanufaktur am Halleschen Ufer from March 3-16, music – dance – theatre; Hochschule der Künste Berlin on March 11, symposium; Kino Arsenal from March 17-23, film.
Organization and Artistic Direction: Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith (USA/Berlin), Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith (USA/Berlin), Donald Muldrow McKinney Griffith II (USA/Berlin), Dr. Ntongela Masilela (South Africa);
in cooperation with: Prof. Dr. Abdul Alkalimat (USA), Uazuvara Ewald Katjivena (Namibia), Getinet Belay (Ethiopia), Joliba Africa Center; Organization: Erika Gregor (Arsenal Cinema, Germany); Organization Assistance: Annette Koschmieder (Germany)

Additionally, Fountainhead® produces and directs since the founding in 1995, the weekly intercultural television magazine program THE COLLEGIUM – Forum & Television Program Berlin, broadcast Thursdays from 9-10 a.m. and Saturdays from 10-11 a.m. at Alex - Open Channel Berlin, and furthermore televised in Magdeburg, Wolfsburg, Dessau and additional cities.
In 1990 Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre established Cultural Zephyr e.V. as a not for profit organization, which administers the cultural and artistic undertakings of Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre.
