QWhat's the use of the best artifcial intelligence,
if our natural intelligence gets lost that way?


This is the last image of the 15th series.
Dunno if there'll be a 16th.
In the tarot the 16 is the number of the tower.
It stands for the fall, decay, doom, destruction...

I've got some plans, anyways.
I want to recover the first pages again.
The Berlin images of the first 6 years were only show once, throw away pictures.
But they still rott on my harddisk...
Dunno how many of them are still usable...
Dunno how many I will re-use...

Wanna take a look?
Currently its only in German, though... and only of 1999...


This year I got no fortune cookie when visiting my brother at XMas.
So I had to take one of my own. It says:

Love lights up you world.

Haven't added or forgot a letter.
Dunno what it means.
When comparing it with the also given German version, I would say that the fortune writer has missed a 'r'...
but who knows...

The drugstore at the Mierendorffplatz at fall...
(The picture aside is from spring.)
also this year visited way to often...


The last books sorted out this year.
Besides other also 1 unread: Der Sturz von Colossus (The Fall of Colossus).
20 or 30 years ago there was the film Colossus on TV.
In a late night SciFi series.
The film was about an AI who achived world domination.
For the "best" of mankind.
I got the book about the fall of Colossus in an used books shop.
I wouldn't read the book until I got and read Colossus first.

Never found.

Now it doesn't matter anyways...


Heared it on the radio:
Heutzutage gilt ein Mann schon als Gentleman,
wenn er die Zigarette aus dem Mund nimmt,
bevor er eine Frau kuesst... (Barbara Streisand)
(Today a man is already a gentleman,
if he puts his cigarette out of his mouth
before he kisses a woman...)

Early Christmas (again).
Got cat images... and I'm allowed to show them all...


The names have been forgotten... maybe to protect the innocent...


This year I took out the Christmas lights...
after 3 years, again.
Thrown away a diode chain... the cable was broken...
I didn't put it on the window...

This cookie I got two times lately.
Now I'm waiting for the next occursion,
because (only) everything that's said 3 times is true...


Most of the time I like to know what cookies other people get.
If they're willing to get one.
If they haven't got a real serious diabetis.
Or if they don't make a diet and couldn't even eat 1 cookie.
(Calorific value of 1 cookie: 25kcal.)

Still no cigarette... for 4 hours and 40 minutes...

The Plötzensee before Nightfall, Autumn 2017

Category:View to the Water

It took me 100 minutes for a walk which took only 20 minutes at the most before my accident. The injuries are some more "effective" than I thought. At least, my mom and the squirrel waited in the car for me.
There at the lake 3 young women were sitting with 2 dogs by their side.
The (very) small dog of the 2 was barking at me nearly constantly.
So I took a photo and nearly was leaving already, when the three women decided to go. (Before that they had talked together... in English.)
So I took a second picture and returned to the car. At home I felt that the first picture, done sowhat hasty, was still the better one...


Again I will try it...
100 hours without a cigarette.
Currently achived: 3 hours without. Still counting...
At least 2 trys before that were failures.
Today I won't go out.
Tomorrow is somewhat risky, because I try to go to the IN-Berlin to put the sky over Berlin for November (still only in German, sorry) online and maybe before that I have to buy something to eat.
If I manage so stay without a cigarette until then, the weekend is easy: simply stay at home with mom.
The last 4 hours should be no problem, too.

I'll tell you later about my success or failure...

The imbiss name of the main image was overexposed, so I took it from a second, darker image...

Seen: Blade Runner 2049.
In the Kant.
In the main theatre.
I think the cinematic year 2017 is already done.
And this not only because I fell at the way to the ticket counter.
I fell somewhat bad.
After 9 months without.
Even the day after I could cry about it.
I somewhat hurt my hand at landing.
I think nothing is broken.
But while watching the film my hand became swollen.
The until then good hand. The right one.
Why I was fallen? Dunno. No idea. I think there was nothing in my way.
But I think the Kant became a less favorite cinema because of this.
Even the new seats at the entry couldn't change this...

The film itself was gorgeous.
Probably the film of the year.
I don't think that any other still coming film will even come close to it.
Maybe I don't like to see another film this year...
except maybe Blade Runner 2049...
if it still runs in 2 weeks from now...
the original version...
although my English is somewhat rusty now.

Maybe I will buy the DVD of that film if it comes out...
163 minutes.
Which I might view then without wetting my pants...

At September 8 Aimee Mann celebrated her 57th birthday.
She earned a bit fame with making most of the soundtrack of Magnolia.
Its said that she also played a role in The Big Lebowski.
(I've seen the film at least three times and didn't noticed her at all.
Maybe its time to play the DVD again...)
I've six CD's with her music. All imported already last year.
This year she made another album after some time... with nearly no airplay.
Dunno if I will buy it.
At October 23 she will even play in Berlin.
I'm somewhat sure I will not see her.
But maybe one or the other music of her will play on my Linux laptop that day...

Of course I know that we only got 10 years or 20 left.
But to be honest, I'm happy with whatever time we get.
Depending on whichever book you read,
sometimes it takes a lifetime to get what you need... (Aimee Mann)

The squirrel at the Cemetary at Plötzensee...
Originally we wanted to the Plötzensee itself.
But there was no visible hole in the fence...

Still I was somewhat happy that I reached the cemetary.
Last year I still had to give up to reach it walking.
After more than 1 hour.
This time I even made a cigarette break at the entry to the Goethepark.
Nearly on top of the rubble mountain.
These "mountains" are remnants of the 2nd world war...


Yesterday (Monday) I bought two new lavender plants to replace one dead one.

The BücherboXX at the Mierendorffplatz...

Three years ago I thought about sorting out some of my books.
Haven't done anything.
Until currently...

I had put three books into the "telephone booth" at first.
Science Fiction.
I don't even know their titles anymore...
even less what they were about.

Two days later they were already not there anymore.
I had put another set of five or so in the BücherboXX.
I've already forgotten their titles, again.
One was a story by Ursula K. Le Guin.
In English.
I only still know that it was not easy to read.
Doubt that I could read it again now, anyways...

Seen: Baby Driver at the CineMaxXPP.
Its from the same director who filmed Hanna in 2007.
There is this rumour that Baby Driver is a comedy.
I didn't heard anyone laughing (I think).
Still the film is worth to see (at least, IMHO).
There was nearly no boring sequences in it.
The film was about a young driver of a getaway car for changing gangs of thiefs, who couldn't drop his job even after he paid his depts.
Until af final showdown...
The music of the film was really great.
If money isn't a problem, the soundtrack of this film is a must-buy.
And if not seen so far, Hanna is a film must-see.


The current fortune cookie:

A refreshing change
is in your future.

I think I'm somewhat ready for it...

I've got a donation lately.
As a 100€ banknote.
I think it was the first time I saw a 100€ banknote at all.
Although this kind of money exists for 15 years now.
I had to make a photo of it.
Who knows what money will exsist in another 15 years.
If any...

I got the 100€ even though I had stated that I would use it for music CD's.
Which I did lately.
After something more than a year I'd gone to the Nollendorfplatz. (The Nolle.)
The record store there - Mr. Dead & Ms. Free - looked a bit sold out.
Anyway. I ordered k.flay's life as a dog and three other CD's.
The latest of Erica Badu I was offered as an vinyl, so I rejected it.
Dunno if my record player still works at all.
But if I visit Mr. Dead & Ms. Free to get the CD's, I might also ask for that LP...
maybe I have to get a new record player anyways...

(Asia Imbiss, U-Bhf. Richard-Wagner-Platz)

Have I already mentioned that I'm an idiot?
Yesterday the UbuntuMATE Linux didn't go gown anymore, again.
And after some reboots it also didn't let me login, again.
So I removed the power supply from the computer, again.
Being somewhat bored I played with the keyboard.
Alt-Cntrl-Del, Alt-Cntrl-BS, Alt-F1-F12 and more...
The last thing I tried was holding gown the On-Button.
Suddenly the computer was off.

After pressing the On-Button again, Linux started nearly normal.

And I was able to login, again.

How stupid is this?
Now maybe I never have to wait until the accu is unloaded, again...


I have a new rose.
Its orange...

But this weather is killing me.
Although it's still not near 40 degrees Celsius, I'm already stunned.
Getting nearly nothing done.
Nearly all windows are closed.

And nobody is around to shoot me...

My only hope is the weather tomorrow (20.).
Then the temperature will drop at least for 10 degrees.
Maybe it will even rain...

As indicated already:
I entered the world of mobile communication.
Anything else than Telekom.
The price was somewhat irrelevant.
The last bills of the Telekom were hardly to top.

Its the first mobile phone of my life. Somewhat.
At my "2-weeks-job" somewhat 14 years ago I should had got a mobile phone before.
It was practically ordered already.
It was a somewhat common Simens mobile at that time.

I've never seen it...

One somewhat aggravating fact of the mobile phone is:
It was not necessary.
Main reason for the phone was because my mom was planned to travel to Italy.
So I bought the phone at the monday before Eastern.
At the tuesday before Eastern my mom told me that she abandoned the three week vacation...

Heared in the radio:
Hare, fox, and bear are called to go to the army.
But all three won't.
The hare cuts off his ears, because a hare without ears don't go.
The fox cuts off his tail, because a fox without tail is crippeled.
The bear let remove his teeth and nails, because without them he is somewhat defenseless.
All three got inspired.
The hare returns first. "Not taken. No ears."
Then the fox returns. "And?" "Not taken. No tail."
The bear comes back at last. "And?" "Not taken." "But why?" "Too fat..."

I'm so sorry, but musicals in general and especially this time are not my favoured kind of films.
I've seen LaLaLand in the Delphi. No accident in front of the cinema this time.
If I would had been more mobile I would had left the cinema after 1 hour... maybe earlier.
So this film got a somewhat seldom ranking. Which is special in its own way.

Outside of the cinema workers already were removing the name of the film.
The LaLa of LaLaLand was standing somewhat pictiouresque on the way in front of a light pillar.
I thought it would had been a good motive.
So I freed the squirrel out of the knapsack and placed it somewhat over the letters.
But before I could make a picture one of the worker came by, put the squirrel back in my hand and removed the LaLa...

I made a photo of of the squirrel later at the Stilwerk ad, undisturbed.

By the way: I'm now proud owner of a Yorck card. Current points: 2...
