At the Yva Bow...

The footwalk parallel to the S-Bahn is named after a Jewish female photographer, born 1900 and murdered (officially at the 31st of December) 1942 in Sobibor. She had tried to leave Germany, but too late. In the web one may find some of her photos. Some of them are somewhat nice...

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...

...mosquito land on your neck

(To correct the Yeah Yeah Yeahs somewhat:
As far as I know it only female mosquitos drink blood...)

*

Today (8/25) Amy MacDonald has her birthday.
Its a round one.
30.
And already her first nervous breakdown behind.
This year she made her fourth album.
Another must-have... at least for me... if I've some money left...

Imported lately: Transvision Vamp.
Extremely embarrasing.
Even more: I've all regular albums of them.
All 3. All three as a CD. Really double plus ungood.
Heared all day long, the whole Thursday through...

*

One day later I imported Depeche Mode as counterweight.
Also of them I've 3 CD's.
Black Celebration Ultra Exciter.
As LP's I've some more.
-But not all.
They got a bit arbitrary lately...

Lets have a black celebration...
to celebrate the fact
that we've seen the back
of another black day... (Depeche Mode)

The weather is really deadly.
But: I'll survive this or die at the attempt...

An Asia Shop at the underground station Spandau.
Nearly on the last leg I bought fortune cookies there.
They are a bit different than the cookies I've bought before.
They taste really ok.
And their sayings are noted in three different languages.
(Sometimes with three different meanings.)
One cookie of it said:

Good Luck will soon
come your way.

I think I'm a wimp.
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.
Getting burned by the hot transformator of the computer.
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.
Hopefully.
Maybe it will even rain...

...although it might not be the best weather for a 84th birthday...

My brother is celebrating his 50th anniversary today.
Halfway through.
At least.
If not, he should definately tell me how...

He got many books that day.
Really many books.
Even if I hadn't a reading problem still, I wouldn't read any of them.
From me he got a Sparschwein and a rose.
A living rose.
It was the last one which the garden shop had...

I for myself have celebrated my 50th nearly not.
It's simply a number...

The Grips Theatre.
I think I was visiting it three or four times.
Somewhen in the 70ies or 80ies...
I was a real fan of the Wilmersdorfer Witwen, then... (protecting Berlin-West).
Also in the film Linie 1.
Which I've seen only on TV.
Maybe two or three times.
All other seen theatre pices of Grips I've nearly completely forgotten.

I think that now I'm to old to go there...

*

Fallen... after more than 6 months.
Dunno why.
After that, I've canceled visiting a cinema.
Wanted to see: Mängelexemplar.
Maybe next week...

Orions arms are wide enough
to hold us both together
although we're worlds apart
I cross the stars for you... (Prince)

Its strange what people rages.

After disposing the waste I was waiting for my mum.
Because it seemed possible that would take some time, I was looking for a cigarette.
I think I had found one then, as a middle-aged woman walked by.
She started raging about the fact that I was sitting (half) on the garden fence.
(It hold me already when I had twenty kilos more.) If the fence would brake she told me that she would call the police.
She said that "over there" were banks to sit on.
And more.
After that her monologue got on my nerves.
I said that she should simply go away.
I don't think that I said "please".
After a while she in fact vanishes in a nearby house entry.
Not without some bad faces.
And the spoken wish that she would never see me again.

My mum appeared nearly instantly after that.

The cigarette was not even half through.

The night to the first of May always has some magic.
I really hope the woman will find a prince tonight...
who will gladly fullfill all her wishes.
I think she really needs it badly...

I'm eager to put the plants out at the balcony.
And to buy new ones for some of the empty flower pots.
I've put out the rose outside, but maybe its too early.
But the rose looks somewhat ill.
I still hope that it will survive its second winter...
It already did, but maybe only to die in spring...

Tomorrow I have a free day...
Maybe I'll buy four or five plants...

maybe less...

From tomorrow on I will stop smoking.
For the whole February.
There are only a few cigarettes left.
I asked the man in the kiosk if he has Double Bubble chewing gum.
Their taste was somewhat special.
Even after an hour or so.
I doubt they still exsist...

My heart is an island on a (deep) blue sea...

Its a line in a song from Juli.
Juli is a German band with songs in the German language.
Maybe I've mentioned them before. Maybe not.
Anyways. Today I heard the song "perfect wave" (Perfekte Welle) on the radio.
Its still nice to listen to them...

The image could be also titled "Kids Cheeseburger", "XL Hamburger Menü" or "XL Cheeseburger Menü"...
The picture shows a fake door of my favoured pizzeria and doener shop.
And a part of a price/advertising list.
I still like to sit outside.
One of the guys asked me if its not a bit cold to sit there.
I said no. And its truly not too cold.
Only the meal looses its temperature somewhat fast.
But as a compensation you can have a lush cola...

A theory of everything.
(In German the film title is something more like "the discovery of infinity".
A somewhat stupid title, me thinks.)
But the film was ok.
Dunno if the ranking will be still "worth to see" at the end of this year, but it will stay at least "acceptable".
The next film I like to see next week is also already selected: St. Vincent.

We build the city with our hands

When I was going to school, the wednesday between Death Sunday and Remembrance Sunday was always free.
In religion school the day was the reason for some special lessons or similar.
In the family we was not going to the church or domething like that.
It might be possible that my dad was working on his model train or something like that.
My mom was probably cooking a special meal at that day.
I dunno. All forgotten.
Nowadays the Buß- und Bettag is a normal wednesday like any other wednesdays.

Currently playing on the computer (the old one): Olive, I'm not in love.

I had 1 1/2 hours time to make this photo...
I think the date was inevitable.
I had to go to a legal person with the person who cares for me.
Before my illness I would had made this distance by foot.
But at that day I possibly wouldn't had made it in time.
So I took a taxi and was there too early.
My lighter got broken so I couldn't even had a cigarette.
After the date I were driving by bus back and had two actual hamburger.
Still no cigarette.
On my way home I finally got a working lighter.
Nearly at home I stopped at the usual cafe (shown by image 29).
Nearly two hours, two cafe latte macciato, and three cigarettes later I finally got home...

I have my computer for about 12 years now.
But I'm still learning new things.
Last weekend I played a bit with Apple Works.
I dunno why.
I tried to put my image into my curriculum vitae.
For 12 year I printed the image with Photoshop and the text of the CV with Apple Works.
I tried to put the image into the text with a white bordered table this time.
And it worked.
So now I don't have to sent the image separately, anymore.
Maybe I do it anyways, because the CV with the image is indecent big.

You can tell the time when looking at the pictures.
I have scanned five of sixty photos.

In front of the Kurbel there is a place which was empty until last year.

It has no inscription or plate.
To call it art is somewhat difficult for me.

They are really doing it. They are deconstructing the Kurbel.
Maybe in some weeks or months they might open a bio market here.
Thereby a cinema would be more important than any market or so.
Thirteen movies I've seen in the Kurbel.
Sadly this is not as many as I've seen in the Kant or Delphi.
The last movie was "Source Code" in June 2011. Nearly one year ago.
There will be no more films in the Kurbel.
How sad.

I definately wanted to see the film "Berlinized - Sexy an Eis" after I heard of it in the radio.
Its world premiere took place in the frame of "Achtung Berlin" 2012.
In the Babylon Mitte. The picture was taken about 1/2 an hour before screening time.
I really got a ticket.
The big hall was full.
I felt like being in a scene in which I don't belong.
The movie was a bit mixed-up, a bit dirty, a bit loud and a bit funny.
Like the 90ies which it claimed to document.

And the infobox is temporary.
By the way: in the background you can see the paneled Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche.

Its now called goya.
No idea whether the club is still active.
Some years ago in the shop left of the club there was a comic shop.
With toys and mangas.
Some of the mangas in my shelf are from this shop.
Nowadays there is one of these terrible games casinos in it.
One reason less to visit the Nollendorfplatz.

If you are looking for black vinyl records, there are only a few places left to find them.
This shop is one of them.
Its close to the underground station Nollendorfplatz.
You also find CDs there.
I still like the feeling to put a vinyl records on and listen to it,
but over the time passed I also like to place a CD in my computer and listen to it.
One thing I absolutely hate are download "albums".
For me they are only data garbage.
Big chunks of data garbage.
And for me as an adherent of the 56k-modem and pay by bill they are not available.
Lately I was looking for N.O.H.A. "Die in the Process" and I had to find out, that this is one of the "albums" that are only given as data garbage.
This is sad because I liked that band and I think I would like that album.
But something as iTunes is a no-go-area for me.
I once liked iTunes when it provided the little QuickTime trailer of cinema movies, but now it seems like a commercial monster.
The "album" is out for three months already, so the hopes are not that high that it will be released as a CD or even a vinyl, too.
Its one thing I will miss.

When I made this picture, a worker who installed plastic tents on the street for some festivity around the 125th anniversary of the Kudamm talked to me. First I didn't understand right and thought he was complaining that I made a picture from him already. But when I understood what he want I shook my head. Generally I don't make photos from people. On my photos I try to leave out people as far as I can. Other photographer can make pictures from people, me I'm not interested in them. Although after thinking about it the worker on the Kudamm might had been a good motive.

Everywhere it is said that Charlottenburg and the Kudamm are on the way up.
I think its the other direction round.
An example: probably already this year at least one of the two theatres Theater and Komödie
at the Kurfürstendamm will be gone. The whole building is planned to be deconstructed and replaced.
In the new building there will be only room for at most one theatre somewhere in the upper floors.
There was a petition for a referendum against the loss of one or both theatres, but the petition failed
because of low resonance.
And so the Kudamm will loose one or two theatres, and with it will loose another reason to be visited.
The only theatre left on the Kudamm will be the Schaubühne at the Lehniner Platz, but this theatre
has a very different programm than the Theater and Komödie at the Kurfürstendamm.

497 games casinos are said to exist in Berlin.
If I would take a picture of every casino I would had pictures for nearly exact five years.
The games casino in the photo is somewhat new. Maybe its even not counted in that 497 casinos.
Before that there was a mattress shop on that corner.
And before that as long as I can think there was a bank there.

497 games casinos are many.
For comparison: there are 150 Lidl shops in Berlin.
I have no idea what makes people go into such a games casino.
In some of them there is only one money game automat waiting on the wall.
In most of them there are only money game automats.
I think games like Pacman, Tetris, or Rampart don't exist anymore.
So where is the fun of it?

The planetarium of the Wilhelm-Foerster-Sternwarte at the Insulaner in fall 2010.
Originally I wanted to see one of the new fulldome shows on that day, but I was three minutes too late.
At the cashier's desk there was nobody anymore.
So I made this picture (with tripod, 4 seconds exposure time) and went back home.

Besides of the fulldome projection the planetarium has also new web pages.
With an head image without much information, taking half of the web page.
For such an image one would have been beheaded in the older days.
There are also no english pages anymore.
And the pages of the working groups at the Wilhelm-Foerster-Sternwarte are hidden or deleted.
I think that the design of the first pages of the Wilhelm-Foerster-Sternwarte were the best.
Although I'm not impartial on that.
You can find the web pages under the address www.planetarium-berlin.de and now new under wfs.does-it.net.
Also these addresses are not that good IMHO.
There are two planetaria in Berlin, so www.planetarium-berlin.de is a bit capturing.
And wfs.does-it.net implies, that there would be pages in english.
So the good old address www.wfs.be.schule.de seem to be still the best.
And it still exists.
A good address would have been www.wfs-berlin.de, but this seems to be taken by another one. There appears an error message.

So this is the 100th picture of this annual set.
These pictures will be placed into another subdirectory in the near future to make room for the 9th annual set.
I dunno if this will be also completed within less than a year.
Lets see.

A night shot without tripod. 1/13 of a second exposure time. Still sharp.
One aim of the photo was to see the text line "kant-kino" completely, therefore the view is a bit slanted. The tree is in the way.
At that day I saw the film "Banksy", which has in fact the name "Exit through the Gift Shop".
It was the 25th film I saw in this cinema. The film was ok.

Or in the Filmkunst 66 in the Bleibtreustraße.
Lately I have seen there "Mary und Max" with "Harvie Krumpet" as a preshow (both films) by Adam Elliot.
Something like this you won't experience in the Cinemaxx or Cinestar.

Berlin is, if you have to wait in line for a currywurst.
Waiting in line has in fact a tradition in East-Berlin.
Originally I wanted to try the currywurst by Konnopke, but the queue had distracted me.
I might be too much West-Berliner.
I prefer the currywurst at Kudamm 195.

The picture above could also be titled:
Berlin is, if the U-Bahn gets packed into wooden boxes.
Because in the background you can see the packed underground line next to the Eberswalder Straße.
Were the wooden plates really cheaper then a plastic cover?

Berlin is, if another occupied house gets cleared.
In this case it was not the complete house, but a shop in the house was cleared.
A gratis shop, where things and clothes could be given away, while others could take these things for free.
Naturally with this concept there couldn't be payed a high rent.
And so the shop was cleared by the police.
The picture from the Kastanienallee 86 was made only a few hours after the clearance.
It was all over, already.

If you walk through Berlin, there barely is something to see from the time between 1933 and 1945. Taken beside the Olympiastadion, the Tempelhof airport and some government buildings in the center of the city the Third Reich seems to be extinct. But then you suddenly see details which still remembers of it. So the two statues at the corner Königin-Elisabeth-Straße Knobelsdorfstraße do.

Probably this page will disappear into a subdirectory and will make place for the eighth annual set, which maybe won't take that long. Maybe with a new camera, maybe with the old one. Who ever needs twelve megapixel, a propriety accu and face recognition..?

Behind the underground entry there is an illuminated ad with four letters in a circle.
It promises: T A N Z.
There is the entrance of the Hafenbar, in which I was once.

Nearly at the same location there was another fountain previously for at least two decades, which was not in function for a long time and as an alternative it was draped with flowers. Somewhere in the last one or two years it was teared down. If the new object is an improvement is something open for discussion.

The former Kudamm-Eck 2008 - be berlin again

The former Kudamm-Eck 2008.
The light advertisement board should be one of the biggest in Europe.
In the times of the old Kudamm-Eck (with a mechanical board of colored cubes) there were also news and weather presented on this board.
Nowadays there are only ads.
Like "be berlin":

Sei Straße... (be street)
Sei Laufsteg... (be catwalk)
Sei Fußabtreter. (be doormap)

This works.
You can easily become a doormap in Berlin.
But also because of another reason the shown motive is my "most favoured" ad of "be berlin".
Of all things the Ruetli school is used in this ad.
This is a school which was in the German news because the teachers were unable to stop the violence at this school. They had written an open letter to the education senator to do something against it. The education senator installed a new principal and some school yard sheriffs. I doubt that I would send my children to that school, still. If I had some.
But so it goes: Any press is good press if it makes you famous.

I have read that the "be berlin" campaign costs 10 million euro and should be lasting until 2009. One can be curious which motives the advertising professionals will do next.












Global City or Province?

At the coming Sunday (2008-04-27) the voting to the public decision about the airport Tempelhof takes place. It is said to be a decision whether Berlin stays a global city of becomes province. This is pretty rubbish, because no global city like Paris, London or New York has an airport in the very center of the city like Berlin. Exactly this is admitted by another poster of the pro Tempelhof party. Tempelhof costs money, that is 10 million euro per year. Compared to the billions of the bank scandal this is only little, but nevertheless its money payed by the tax payers. So if there is something where one can spare 10 million euro, this is something to go for it. Therefore I am for a big park instead of some asphalt runways for a few business airplanes. The historical buildings will be preserved, anyways. Within the hangars of Tempelhof there were some concerts in the past, this is something to do for the future, too.

The question is, whether to go to the voting or not. To make the public decision valid it is necessary that sixhundredthousand voters make their cross. The last surveys I have heard were about 61% to 39% for a further operation of Tempelhof. No idea how this could be so many, because nearly none of the 61% will come into the position to fly from Tempelhof. As said, Tempelhof will be a business airplanes only airport. 61% are a lot. A single "no" will make no big difference. But a not made vote might lead to the fact that the public decision won't become valid. And after all the whole vote is a farce: Even if the public decision will be valid and even if 61% will be pro Tempelhof, the closing of the airport is already a signed and sealed fact. It is already decided to close Tempelhof - besides it was already by the former Diepgen senate. And so the whole voting itself is a waste of money for nothing.

My formerly most favoured cinema.
It is nearly vis-a-vis of the Prometheus fountain.
It is already some years ago that the last movie was shown, here.
Now it is only a restaurant.
I cannot say which cinema is my most favoured now.
Maybe the Delphi... maybe... no... maybe the CineStar Origial..?

The eternal construction area is naked again. One can look over it to the Zoo-Palast - a multiplex cinema. For a long time - maybe three or four years - at the place of the construction area there was a big scaffolding with advertising planes. But this is removed, now. No idea, when this had happend. Maybe this is a sign that something will be going on, here. I think I read something about a bureau building which will be higher than anything around. No problem with that. The main point is, that the big black hole within the heart of the City West will vanish. It exists as long I can remember. A really long time ago there was a solitude shop for second hand clothes, but this is gone for at least a decade or so. - I also look forward for the big ferris-wheel which is planned to be build somewhere close to the Zoo. If it will be build, anyways.

Ok, ok, I have understood, Ivy's Bar is gone. It was a nice comic. But wait: There it is again: Ivy's Bar @ Ehrensenf. Hopefully it will stay alive for a long time. If not, Ivy might appear at least sometimes at Daily Ivy.

I am Berlin.

Old.
Fat.
Unsuccessful.
Somewhat dirty.
Poor but sexy.
Schizophrene and paranoid.
For six years now work- and sense-seeking.

For a long time I've not seen such a stupid advertising campaign. Its in a row with "Du bist Deutschland" and "Wir sind Papst".

I really can't remember to experience a BVG strike, ever. The fact that it shall prolong through Eastern is somewhat painful. Normally I don't need the BVG. I walk most of my ways. But right before and after Eastern I have to go to Lichterfelde, which is somewhat more troublesome with the S-Bahn...

I take pictures only occasionally, lately. The picture above is one of seventeen which I had saved from the camera. Most of these pictures were from the time around Christmas. Maybe I will do some more photography in the coming future...

The Kosmos UFA-Palast in the snow in winter 2004/2005.
The picture is blurred and the motive is not completely on it.
Still the picture is somewhat important.
It shows the cinema, when it was still a cinema.
At the day of the photography I saw "Aviator" in the cinema.
It was not the last film, but it was already indicated that the cinema will close down.
