The selection of the next film will be a tough choice...
3 hours Ex Libris or still Lady Gaga...


Survived: another "summertime".
The thirty-ninth.
Who knows if anyone will survive the fortieth...


About 25 years ago Audrey Hepburn died...
Maybe 10 years ago, maybe less, I collected about 1000 pictures of Pizdaus.
With my 32k-Modem.
One of them shows Audrey... maybe in New York... next to the river.
She's sitting on a poller...
She was a true beauty... at that time... and even more earlier.
Nearly unbeleivable that she's gone for so long.
In the 80ies/90ies watched some films with her on TV...
Breakfast at Tiffany's, My Fair Lady, How to steal a Million, Charade, Sabrina, Robin & Marian...
far from all...
"Moon River" was one of the very few tunes I could play...
at least for some time... by heart...
on my guitar...
never somewhat good.
1992 cancer was detected within her.
Already at the beginning of the following year she died...
at an age of 63...

If there are people who should get somewhat like biological immortality, she might had been one...


If you want to be the center of a party, don't join it. (like Audrey Hepburn said...)

Dear God, if you may exsist, make me half-deaf, please... now!


A friend is asking his fellow: "Why so sad? And what's about these 3 pigs?" - "Well, I was visited by a good fairy who said that I have a free wish, but I have to tell it loud because she is somewhat deaf. All what I wanted was three millions in small ticks, and what do I get? Three melons in small pigs!"

(...about this grade of deafness would be ok...)

The ice-cold Hand, Fall 2018

Annual set 16Picture 80
Camera:Samsung Galaxy J56 (out of the car, clipped)

The ice-cold hand...
its official name is "Hand with Watch" and (interestingly like the image of Ben Wargin) of 1975.
The artist of this clock is Joachim Schmettau, who created also the fountain ("Weltkugelbrunnen") at the Breitscheidplatz.
The hand was renovated in 2012...

It was already a Berlin pict in 2000... broken... with red fingernails...
In a far away future maybe also this page will be resurrected...
at least in German...
but my next project will be a Berlin pict page of 2002...
including a Lagerweg graffiti showing an exceptional comic, not seen afterward anymore...

Seen: Die defekte Katze @ delphiLUX.
(Dunno the English title and it doesn't matter anyway.)
Seen in an enpty cinema.
Another new best film of the year, IMHO.
Maybe this time it will last until the end... of the year...

The Return of the Goatheadtree

The return of the goatheadtree...

The official name of this image is "Weltbaum I" (World Tree 1).
Originally its from Ben Wargin of 1975...
placed next to the S train station Tiergarten.
I think that I've seen it there, still.
I was somewhat surprised to see this copy placed within Moabit.

This spring the artist Ben Wargin became 88 years old.
He became a bit famous for his ginko tree mentoring...

The series no. 16 starts here...
I'm alive... I think... somewhat...
I thought about abandoning also the English version of the Berlin picture.
But I think I'll continue it at least for this year...

Quick check:
I'm still somewhat disabled on the left side.
Still entering this text only with the right hand.
The left hand still itches constantly as if I'm getting millions of €...
Sometimes the left hand also gets cold... very cold...
Still seeing only about 75%.
Sometimes it seems that the disabled region enlarges.
Not fallen... for about three months now.
The right hand only hurt sometimes because of the fall at the start of Fall, now.
I'm still sometimes slower than my nearly 85-years-old mum.
But I think this is getting better, somewhat.
Going down the stairs is still more difficult than going up.
10 weeks after visiting the female dentist. The "new tooth" is still intact.
No pains. No pains. No pains...

(To the Sharp Corner)

Annual set 15Image 84
Camera:Samsung Galaxy J56
Online:2017-10-10 (planned)

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...

A memorial in Berlin, Moabit...


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)


At the record shop lately.
Got Ellen Allien, Nost.
Its ok. Not outragues brilliant, but ok.
So only one record is left to get: Amy MacDonald...

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...

Have I mentioned already that this weather is completely deadly?
Today one next to Uelzen and another next to Gifhorn were "blown by the wind".
Deadly. (Two more are through...)
Some flights were cancelled and some train lines were disrupted.

Small correction:
I've 5 CD's by Swing out Sister.
Found: get in touch with yourself.
Also this CD is somewhat great...

I'm the one you hurt, and I'm the one you need.
I'm the one who cried, I am the one you used to meet.
But you are pretending you don't care,
but the fire is still there... (Swing out Sister)


Seen: Ghost in the Shell.
At CineMaxX, Potsdamer Platz.
Nearly alone.
The Knoblauchpizza for lunch wasn't that necessary...

The film was really great.
With Scarlett Johanson, one of the ugliest beauties you can imaging, playing Mayor Kusanagi.

The film was nothing less than outstanding...

A bus station ad at the border between Moabit and Charlottenburg.
Its at the Goslarer Platz on the Kaiserin-Augusta-Allee.
Sometime after 22h MET DST.
I left the bus there, sat at the station, smoked a cigarette.
Then I got out the camera to take a picture.
The ad at the station is for an online shop.
Somewhat irrelevant. (IMHO.)
But I love the sticker the ad had got...

it seems that its a bit related to the CSD...

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...

Don't want to know.
