Earth:: Hikuri Neirra: peyote dance, as performed by the Huichol people from Mexico.
Space:: Mutaciones de Dos Magnetofones: two tape-recorder mutations. “Clearly the whole defense must be experiments with two tape recorder mutations”. (William S. Burroughs, 'Nova Express', 1964).
Between Earth and Heaven:: Échafaud Temporel Spectral: Spectro-Temporal Scaffold. Alternative Paris in an alternative 1958. Jeanne Moreau, Miles Davis, Louis Malle, and the nouvelle vague were just spectres. (Louis Malle, 'Ascenseur pour l’Échafaud', 1958).
Hell:: Poison of Dead Sun: “Cross the wounded galaxies we intersect, poison of dead sun in your brain slowly fading – Migrants of ape in gasoline rack of history, explosive bio-advance out of space to neon… Pass without doing our ticket – Mountain wind of Saturn in the morning sky – from the death trauma weary goodbye then”. (William S. Burroughs, 'The Soft Machine', 1961).
Power, Corruption and Lies:: Presidente Basura: Trash president, spuriously elected on November 8, 2016. A supporter of the Klan, he will invade Poland and Canada shortly.
Pseudoscience:: Andalusia, Alabama: Home of Frank J. Tipler, cosmologist. He invented a cylinder of infinite length which, by rotating at the speed of light in the vicinity of a region containing exotic matter, can be used as a device to travel backward in time. Escupemetralla routinely use a pocket-size Tipler cylinder to send their sound productions back to the 1980s and 1990s. On the other hand, Tipler claims that the dead will resurrect in the distant future.
Destructive Technology Obliterates Transcendence:: Go Fuck Yourself with Your Atom Bomb: “America I’ve given you all and now I’m nothing / America two dollars and twentyseven cents January 17, 1956. / I can’t stand my own mind. / America when will we end the human war? / Go fuck yourself with your atom bomb”. (Allen Ginsberg, 'America', 1956).
Complete Havoc:: Gran Plan para la Transformación de la Naturaleza: Great Plan for the Transformation of Nature (Великий план преобразования природы), one of Iosif Stalin’s delirious plans to dominate the world and create an entirely Bolshevik nature.
