TFR is over. But check out TFR's owner new project for this year
Willa 2010
www.willapolis.blogspot.com


WILLA is the new thematic party run by Gallermic, the creator of TFR and Narziß, two regular events that grew into an unparalleled mediatic tour de force inside of the world of fashion and art, due to an exuberant visual and intellectual attack against mainstream culture in the Japanese society and in the globalized world. Taking into account this background, Willa is the ultimate sophisticated scenario to present Gallermic’s authentic reflections about life, the world, the human being, the good and the evil, the culture, the art scene, and most of all an excuse to show Galle’s exuberant ability to love. The objective of the party is to generate love and communication through a universal symbolism that reaches everybody’s heart. As Galle declares: “Willa is a party for the good flowers”.

日本語\\\\WILLA は、ファッションとアートの世界に偉大な功績を残した二つのパーティー、TFRとNarzißの創設者、Gallermicによる新しいパーティーである。日本社会とグローバライズ化された世界の主流のカルチャーに対する、圧倒的な視覚体験と知性による反撃を意図して開催されて来た。こうした背景を鑑み、WILLAは、Gallermicにとっての日常、世界、人類、善と悪、カルチャー、アートシーン、そしてとりわけGalleの愛についての表象を、究極に洗練された物語として送り届ける。このパーティーの目的は、すべての人々の心に届く普遍的な象徴を通して、愛とコミュニケーションを慈しみ、育むことにある。Galleの言葉を借りれば、「WILLAは善き花々へのパーティーである」。

Ciao For Now. And Deep Throat To You All!

12/12 Next Narziß is The Last Narziß 12/12
↓↓↓Ciao For Now. And Deep Throat To You All!↓↓↓

~> Dec 12 (fri) 10P Narziß Celebrating *Ciao For Now. And Deep Throat to You All!* at Trump Room, Shibuya.

Next Narziß is the last Narziß, our last party: an erotic fantastic farewell. We are saying bye-bye after 21 parties: it's like the magical 7 x 3, the number of the perfection by excellence and of the individuality according to the numerology. For us is inhuman and perfect: like a triangle. For how extraordinary have We been all this time, after all... It’s arousing: Ciao for now. And deep throat to you all!

P.s. We don't want to be uncouth (but we want to be called uncouth), BUT this is the last party, the last photos, and the last chance to represent your groovy self... and there is NO turning back!

↓↓↓TFR in DAZED&CONFUSED JAPAN↓↓↓
インタービュー日本語
Interview in Enlgish:
DAZED: Could you tell me about the party that you are organizing right now? (The name of the party / When did you start having it? / How often are you having it? Etc… Give me the details!)
TFR: The name of the party is NarziB. Basically, NarziB is held every other week at Tokyo's most stylish spaces. We started the party from March 8th 2008.

DAZED: After establishing the party "TFR", you started having another party called "NarziB", what are the conceptual differences between those two? Also, what are the unite concepts?
TFR: TFR is a web magazine critiquing fashion, art and club culture in Tokyo. What differentiates TFR from other media is that we clarify our position and criteria on the issues we cover. The party we organized under the name of TFR was supposed to be the manifestation of our opinion. Therefore, we attempted to represent it through our fashion, the title of each party, flyer and everything. Basically, the concept of TFR parties were rather political and aggressive (ex. anti-globalization). We believe that TFR is something like a visual guerrilla trying to attack the mainstream culture. On the other hand, NarziB is a side project of TFR. Compared with TFR, NarziB doesn't necessarily intend to represent an opinion. It is merely for fun and networking. To us, there seemed like in Tokyo the so-called "community" is virtually non-existent. We want NarziB to be a cultural community for beautiful and individual people. We don't play loud music in NarziB. We want our guests to talk and know each other. NarziB is not fashion-oriented. A wide variety of people with different background are welcomed. As a matter of fact, our guests range from cultural figures like a film actor and an art curator to bohemian homeless. At the same time, NarziB is devoted to beauty. We have dress code for each party and the poor-dressed will not be admitted.



DAZED: Who writes the manifest for the parties?
TFR: Gallermic Mabuse

DAZED: How do you select DJs? Do you have a guideline for it?
TFR: We think there is a ridiculous overvaluation of the DJ nowadays. Specially in Tokyo, the Dj culture has reach the limit of idolatry, to become a Dj is the last burst of the ambition of the club kids. But why? It is like for Japanese there wouldnt be other way to be a star. And we consider that Dj ambition a misery of personality, lack of talent, and the worst tragedy of the parties along with Rave. Therefore, We are not music oriented. We want our visitors to get excited by interaction with beautiful people, to create community, icons and gossips. We rather select our guest Dj's by their cultural background and their beauty, and we called them the oldfashioned way: "selectors". Sometimes we dont even know who is gonna dj next party, we just improvised. Nevertheless, our music selection is rich. A wide range of classical, jazz, gypsy, global grooves, house, auld lang syne and cinephiliac music.

DAZED:What was the start of taking party snaps?
TFR: Just recording our memories.

DAZED: What/which kind of moment would you like to capture when you take photos?
TFR: Whenever as long as the subject is beautiful.

DAZED: What do you think about Tokyo party scene? How do you like to be placed in?
TFR: We don't really know what kind of parties are going on in Tokyo. We don't want to take ourselves within the context of Tokyo or anywhere on the earth. We prefer being regarded as a metaphysical concept without being restricted by biased idea, the name of a city or a country would possibly give.

DAZED: Could you tell me about the fashion style of the TFR guests? Do you have a special dress code?
TFR: Dress code = Individuality. Nothing is more important.



DAZED: Tell me about the concept of the exhibition you had this year, "POST NO FUTURE" at hiromiyoshii gallery.
TFR: Fashion is hentai. We can not help the association between something as superficial and hedonistic as fashion and the mere sexual pleasure full stop. Therefore, for us, a fashion personae who is not a hentai, it is an impostor, a traitor, an alienated puritan in disguise following trends who might just finish his days without a notion of personal style nor fashion itself. Fashion can be zoophiliac, necrophiliac, paediophiliac, dendrophiliac...all the paraphilias. And this can sound as obscene as fascinating, but most of all we are just trying to give an idea of the precariety of fashion these days. We spread fashion in all senses, and are here only to encourage creativity in personal hentalism.

DAZED: Do you have any plans to start up a new project?
TFR: Travel report by TFR's half Naokoula who is in a world round trip right now. And UBUROI, a fashion label for people who likes concepts like NarziB.


Thanks Dazed&Confused

↓↓↓TFR On The World-Round Trip↓↓↓
TFR's half Naokoula is in the middle of the world-round trip. She started writing about her experience on TFR...

english\\\\What is recorded here is not necessarily our experience. It can be an absolute fiction all made up in our head, or as a matter of possibility, something we MIGHT have experienced, or perhaps something we DID experience but in some other place or time. We have two kinds of journeys at the same time: the outward and inward. Our outward journey is governed by the clock and the budget, but inward one ignores the boundaries of place and time. The journey is not linear.It is always back and forth. And it is what we want to record, leaving us free from the time and the physical distance. Here, we deny the calender. We deny the map...

japanese\\\\ここに書かれていることは、私たちが実際に体験した出来事かもしれないし、もしかしたらすべて私たちの頭の中だけで作り上げられた完全なフィクションかもしれない。もしくは、可能性の問題で、体験しなかったけれども、体験した「かも」しれない出来事、また、私たちが体験したことだけれど、どこか違う場所で違う時間に体験した出来事かもしれない。私たちは、同時に2種類の旅をしている。身体的な旅が1つ。もう一つは精神的な旅。そしてその旅は、直線じゃない。そういう形の旅は、いつも行ったり来たりを繰り返す。そんな時間軸や物理的な距離に捉われない旅を私たちは記録したいと思っている。私たちは、カレンダーを否定する。私たちは、地図を否定する...

español\\\\Lo que grabamos aqui no es necesariamente nuestra experiencia. Puede ser una ficcion absoluta completamente inventada en nuestra cabeza, o una cuestion de posibilidad, algo que PUDO habernos pasado, o tal vez algo que SI experimentamos pero en algun otro tiempo o espacio. Nosotros tenemos dos tipos de viaje al mismo tiempo: exterior e interior. Nuestro viaje exterior esta gobernado por el reloj y el presupuesto, pero el interior ignora los limites del tiempo y el lugar. El viaje no es lineal. Es siempre de ida y vuelta. Y es lo que queremos grabar, dejandonos libres del tiempo y de la distancia fisica. Aqi, nosotros negamos el calendario. Nosotros negamos el mapa... (To read more, scroll down)

↓↓↓JAPANESE DON'T USE THEIR FREEDOM↓↓↓
日本語\\\\自由を使っていない日本人。なにも、地球のどこかに、完璧な世界があると信じてるわけじゃない。だけど、もしも、その「完璧な世界」に近いものがあるとしたら、僕らにとってそれは「サブカルチャー」ということになる。つまり、インディペンデントで、アングラで、自由奔放で、独自の哲学を持つコミュニティ。そこでは、僕らにとっての「完璧」に近いものや探していたタイプの人間を見つけることが出来る。だけど、残念なことに、日本社会の最大の弱点に僕らが直面してしまうのもまた、このサブカルチャーの中なんだ。[イメージをクリックして]

english\\\\JAPANESE DON'T USE THEIR FREEDOM. It's not that we believe that a perfect place exists on the Earth. But if there is something close to it, it is the subculture -the space where we can find that and those who we are looking for-, or specifically that type of independent, free, countercultural, philosophic and bold community. Lamentably, it is in this sense of subculture /community where we bump into the weakest and most demoralizing point of Japanese society.

español\\\\LOS JAPONESES NO USAN SU LIBERTAD. No es que creamos que exista un lugar perfecto sobre la Tierra. Pero si hay algo cercano a eso es la subcultura -el espacio donde podemos encontrar eso y a esos a quienes estamos buscando-, o específicamente aquel tipo de comunidad independiente, libre, contracultural, filosófica y atrevida. Lamentablemente, es en este sentido de subcultura/comunidad donde nos topamos con el punto más débil y desmoralizador de la sociedad japonesa.

we are a space of FREEDOM, FRESHNESS and ESCAPISM. from this perspective, we are one of the very FEW ORIGINAL MEDIA -and definitely the one that has the MOST TENACIOUS and CRITICAL OPINION- related to the 'WORLD OF FASHION'. yes, world we belong to, but also world we find abhorrent because it's representing the most visible side of the pseudo-well-being [CONSUMERISM], that behind glamourous SMOKE SCREENS [generally starred by 'MODELS' and 'POP STARS'], and making use of the so-called 'TRENDS', spreads the most recalcitrant STEREOTYPES of CAPITALISM and its just-apparent GLOBALIZATION... at THEFASHIONRAMONE [a.k.a TFR] you will find, then, the best alternative in fashion design and counterculture!!!!!

Remix 1

Jessica
She holds one of the most stunning books, she opens ultraexpensive fashion shows, she already was in the I-D and now she appears in the british POP magazine in one of the most exhilarating covers of the last times: on technicolour back, with theatrical make-up and a lovely Prada-s visor. Jessica Stam lives the best moments of an as worhty as efimerous career like modeling. By now, with faces like Jessica-s, everything is absolutely perfect...
Spanish\\\\Ostenta uno de los books más impresionantes, abre desfiles ultracarísimos, ya estuvo en la I-D y esta vez aparece en la británica revista POP en una de las portadas más hilarantes de los últimos tiempos: sobre fondo technicolor, con maquillaje histriónico y una entrañable visera de Prada. Jessica Stam atraviesa los mejores momentos de una carrera tan digna y efímera como el modelaje. Por ahora, con rostros como los de Jessica, todo va absolutamente perfecto...

Plug Awards
Earning more prestige and coverage, the 'indiefferent' Plug Awards for independent music was held in New York some days ago. The jury is conformed by artists, melomaniacs, bloggers and fans...everything indie. Its history begins in 2001: a group of *anticonformist* raged against the hegemonic music industry in the middle of hypermedia and postmodern times. Check out the list of nominees and winners because it seems there will be many of those whom you might like.
Spanish\\\\Ganando más prestigio y cobertura, en New York se llevó a cabo hace algunos días los Plug Awards, la *indieferente* entrega de premios a la música independiente. El jurado está conformado por artistas, melómanos, bloggers, fans...de todo pero indie. Su historia se remonta al 2001, a un grupo de *anticonformistas* en contra de la industria musical hegemónica en medio de tiempos hypermediáticos y posmodernos. Revisen la lista de nominados y de ganadores porque al parecer están muchos de los que te podrían gustar.

Faline
Faline, the überecletic and tokyoite fashion store celebrated its second anniversary @ La Fabrique - Shibuya, the last thursday. New Yorker Duke was there djing electro-rock and it-s vox populi that Mary, the photographable owner and most famous fashion critic from Japan, was hunging around ultrafresh betwen her numerous fans, the just denominated Tokyo New Generation, say the most fashion and the most avant garde ones. Congratulations!
Spanish\\\\La überecléctica y tokyota tienda de moda Faline celebró su segundo aniversario en La Fabrique - Shibuya el pasado jueves. Tuvieron al newyorker Duke pinchándoles electro-rock y dícese que Mary, la fotografiable dueña y crítica de moda más famosa del Japón, anduvo de lo más distendida entre sus numerosos fans, quienes además son la ya denominada Tokyo New Generation, o sea de lo más fashion y de los más vanguardistas. Enhorabuena!

Anna Reloaded
This fashion Misses is around more than 30 years wearing just as God commands the heretic ones: on their fuck*n way! And fortunately, nowadays everybody wants to respect, to show and to celebrate this sort of behaviour. Those who can, go to see her fashionology made by Roxanne Lowit @ the V&A in London. There is a lot of material if we have in mind that the fuck*n Anna Piaggi changes costume 5 or 6 times in one day. We wonder how she was dressed in the vernissage...
Spanish\\\\Esta señora fashion anda por más de 30 años vistiendo como Dios manda a los heréticos: como se le da la reverenda gana! Y afortunadamente, ahora eso se respeta, se muestra y se celebra a lo grande. Los que puedan, vayan a ver su fashionología hecha por Roxanne Lowit en el V&A de Londres. Hay harto material si tomamos en cuenta que la condenada cambia de atuendos 5 o 6 veces por día. Nos preguntamos cómo habrá ido vestida a su vernissage...

Fresh Fruits
Fruits, the Japanese streetfashion cult magazine, brought to life several months ago what we could expect: Fresh Fruits, the book of the most 'ficticious' real characters of the world ( and in their most idiosyncratic and prodigious style manifestations). Just watch: they make it better! OSHAAAA!
Spanish\\\\Fruits, la revista de street fashion japonesa de culto, hace algunos meses que dió a luz lo que se podía esperar: Fresh Fruits, el libro de los personajes reales 'más ficticios' del mundo (y en sus más idiosincráticas y prodigiosas manifestaciones de estilo). Compruébalo tú mismo: nadie les gana! OSHAAAA!

February/24th
This friday you dont want to miss Deerhoof and the Afrirampo @ Loft in Shinjuku. Perhaps you-ll be at the first raw in front of the Vivians @ Unit in Daikanyama. And after you will definetely be electroshocking @ Linda in the rad Shibuya-s Chelsea Hotel. It has nothing to do with the providence... it-s simply Tokyo.
Spanish\\\\Este viernes no te querrás perder a Deerhoof y a las Afrirampo @ Loft en Shinjuku. Tal vez estés en la primera fila frente a los Vivians @ Unit en Daikanyama. Y después definitivamente estarás electroshockeando @ Linda en el *rad* Chelsea Hotel de Shibuya. No tiene nada que ver con la providencia... es simplemente Tokyo.
