A Passage to India

Well, we all know where Columbus ended up when he tried to find one. Luckily, my friend Marietta actually made it to India, exchanging the colourful sights of Carnival in Mainz for those of Jaipur.

Manifestieren.

Im vergangenen April, auf der Republica 2009, habe ich Stefan Niggemeier nach der gnadenlos langweiligen Blogger vs. Journalismus-Diskussion zwischen zwei Radiointerviews zum Thema noch gefragt, ob es ihn nicht langweile, seit Jahren mit den gleichen Leuten immer die gleichen Dinge zu diskutieren. Er meinte schlicht – „ja“. Aber er begreift diese Diskussionen wohl auch als […]

I was born on a Monday.

And I never knew. Max Winde at Spreeblick had the funny idea to delve deep into the recently opened digital Spiegel archive and look for his birthweek’s Spiegel issue. For me, it was, apparently, actually a birthday issue.

Happy New Year.

Happy belated new year, gentle readers. For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been enjoying Australian hospitality. Unfortunately though, due to an unfortunate combination of hosting issues at home and lack of decent internet connectivity down under, I have not been able to blog my trip as I had planned to. I will definitely recapitulate […]

I’m in Amsterdam this weekend, to celebrate the wedding of two friends. And while they were clever enough to avoid unwanted and unneeded presents by sending a list, I decided that I’ll add something more personal, sat down at the piano, and wrote a song.

When 2 become 1.

Recently, my digital camera’s display broke, and after that the lense closing mechanism. So I either had the lense closing mechanism. So I either had to buy a new one, or another brokeno buy a new one, or another broken one on Ebay. I decided to give the DIY camera bionics operation a shot.

Der Spiegel stimmt ein: Hymne auf den FSV

Mara Braun erklärt für Spiegel Online wie ihr Verein sie fand und findet dabei Worte, die wohl jedem Spätberufenen aus der Seele sprechen werden… Meine Liebe zu Mainz 05 ist eine späte, und manchmal finde ich es schade, dass ich, wenn ich irgendwann mit eigenen Kindern im Fanblock stehen werde, nichts davon erzählen kann, wie […]

Attending two friends’ beautiful wedding yesterday, I realised that the Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ “Under The Bridge” isn’t really the most appropriate song to be played right after the rings have been exchanged…

Skriptdoktoring in der Filmklasse der Akademie für Bildende Künste Mainz. Die Größe des Entwurfsbereichs ist leider umgekehrt proportional zum momentanen Budget des allerdings sehr vielversprechenden Projekts… Akademion.

Mein Stasi 2.0 T-Shirt.

Ich hatte schon länger vor, mir ein Stasi 2.0 T-Shirt zu bestellen, habe es aber irgendwie immer wieder vergessen. Als allerdings gestern im ZDF heute-journal im Rahmen eines Beitrages zum Thema die T-Shirts erwähnt wurden, habe ich kurzerhand beim daraufhin wohl stattfindenden Run auf die Spreadshirt Server teilgenommen und mir ein Exemplar bestellt. [Platzhalter für […]

Das Nichts

Das Nichts (I). Sollte sich irgendjemand über die geringe Schreibfrequenz wundern – die hat vor allem damit zu tun, daß ich aufgrund von Kommentar-Spam-Problemen A Fistful Of Euros von Movable Type nach WordPress portiert habe, was doch deutlich aufwendiger war als angenommen. Aber ich habe dabei einen Weg gefunden, MT-Blogs als Kategorien nach WP zu […]

Homemade foie gras au sauce de truffes. Then you step outside and this is what you see. You just gotta love Paris… even if it’s cold, and you’re visiting only for a day. Click on the image for an enlarged version. My flickr photostream – meine flickr Bilder

Chantier 2.1

Maybe not the most SEO friendly title but, well, who cares. Chantier just sounds better than construction site. But I do like the sound of scaffolding, which alas, isn’t really necessary for a construction site on the web – which this blog still is and, now, finally, the reason for this entry, will remain for […]

It’s a tad bit late, and I do know it. Don’t be too concerned with my timing though (well, at least not because of my posting this picture), I’m simply setting up my flickr moblog again, after yet another switch of my blogging software. While I did like Expression Engine a lot, I’ve mostly worked […]

It’s been an awful long time since the last entry in this blog. But that is, fortunately, much rather a consquence of being too busy than of a lack of activity – and, just as a reminder – you can always listen to some of the songs I’ve written this year on my profile page […]

Still breathing…

Gentle readers, I’d like to inform you that I am, indeed, not dead… just a little busy. Unfortunately, off the cuff API blogging via flickr or the occasional remark while web browsing is currently impossible due to the fact that my current provider has chosen not to update a rather old Perl installation. Oh, and […]

The cost of living… and dying.

No kidding. I just got a call from one of my credit card banks offering me a risk life-insurance police to ensure my family’s financial health in case of my, well, accidental, early death. When I explained to the telemarketer that I’m single and that I might contact her again when there’s a family to […]
