Hart im Hirn, weich in der Birne, ohne Halt, einfaeltig und klein.
Auf der Suche nach einem Fuehrer, es ist hart, allein beschraenkt zu sein.
(Groenemeyer, "Die Haerte")


Seen: "Juliet, naked" @ delphiLUX.
First of all: There is no naked truth in this film whatsoever.
Only a once known male musician who's now hidden...
his greatest male fan and his female friend...
a female who loves women, but most of the time unrequited...
some children of the musician and more.
Its still worth to see...

Funny fact aside (read at IMDb):
Rose Byrne (Annie) was pregnant while the making of the film...
sixth month...
most of the time this was hidden through special shots...

Endless Summer.
According to a poll of the EU nearly 80% of the participating citizens were against the current regulation to install "Summertime" (MET DST) after the start of spring and to return to the Middle European Time at the end of October.
Thats ok.
Not ok is that most of the participants are said to be for an endless "summer".
And I think the future might show that.
If people in Portugal, Spain and South France have to go up most than half of the year in the dark to go to work.
Maybe already ten years after that they might split up... and then maybe not only in terms of an endless summertime...


Talking about my rose lately?
The five blossoms are in full bloom now or already somewhat fainting.
The real astonishing fact is: one of the flowers is/was colored... orange.

I think I need a new record player...
I cannot convince the old one to play stereo anymore...
there is a constant humming noise when playing a record...
it has problems with holding the speed...

And if I die today I will be a happy phantom...

When I woke up for the last time that day...

extremely deep in the south... sometimes covered by clouds...
the mysterious machine was hammering... pervasive...
maybe a last drunkard came home... talking to himself... loud...

Seen: Interstellar (OV 70mm) @ Delphi.
Originally I wanted to classify this movie as uninteresting.
But then I saw the rating at IMDb.
With 8.6 its rated better than Kubricks 2001 and Tarkowskis Solaris.

This cannot have anything to do with reality...

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 squirrel at the Cemetary at Plötzensee...

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...

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 have tried to smoke no cigarette at the first of January.
I tried in vain.

Here is just another ad.
This time its for the theatre program "Gutes Wedding / Schlechtes Wedding".
It takes place at the Prime Time Theater in Wedding.
Up till now I haven't seen it, although it exists for a while.
Maybe it will exist for a little more time...

I thought this picture would be more difficult to make.
Already the first try worked.

The finished and the unfinished ape from last year are already overpainted.

The finished ape.
Sometime the picture would be successful.
The text beside the ape is unreadable, though.

What happened in the meantime:
The Deutschlandhalle got blasted.
The senator for justice and consumer protection has resigned after twelve days.
The Kurbel probably will close down (this time forever).
At the end of the year also the Icon will close down (and this time also forever).
No comment.

And again in May it was Hasi and Mausi time. This time the Ads were even on TV.
All pictures had to be corrected for brightness and contrast. Still they are not that uniform.
There seems to be a distinct difference between the Canon Powershot and the Casio Exilim.

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 Müllerhalle is bound to get deconstructed in the near future.
This is what I've read in one of these gratis weekly newspapers.
It was never a beautiful building.
But it was part of my youth.
Sometimes I still dream of it...

If you're driving with the ring train you'll see some apes mostly between Beusselstraße and Wedding. The apes are already around for some time and they are somewhat well done. At the picture above I have pressed the button too early for only some splits of a second, so that only an unfinished ape came into view.

One of the last record stores in the city. In the time of Amazon and MP3 they are remnants of a lost epoch. Many years ago you would have found even vinyl records here. Today you will get them if you order them, in the best case. I don't buy at Moondance anymore. The music style is not what I prefer. But even at Mr.Dead&Mrs.Free, where the music selection is more of my taste, I wasn't for a long time. Its time to go there and browse through the new releases, again.

The (old) city hall Wedding in spring 2010.
Not much had changed here.
The coffee shop is somewhat new.
But the Musikhaus Stehr exist as long as I can think.
There my classic guitar was bought, most of the notes I have from there.
Who knows how long this shop will remain.

Its Hasi-and-Mausi-time again.
If you're driving by S- or U-Bahn, then you can't withdraw from the posters.
It is cold and rainy, but the ads are promising warmth and beach and ocean.
And models.
Slim, untatooed models.
Some times ago I have heard a discussion, that the models of H&M are way too skinny.
I think not.
Or as Al Bundy has said it:

Peg: "Don't you think that this model is somewhat too skinny? There should be something to grab on a woman."
Al: "Believe me, Peg. Many boys have already grabbed her, and none of them has missed."

(Ok, this is a translation from English into German back to English, so the true words of the dialogue might differ.)
So what should H&M take for a model? Beth Ditto look-a-likes?
Although this might be funny for some, its not something I want to see.
If I want to see a Beth Ditto look-a-like, I only have to look into a mirror.

I've not much time to make photos, currently. But this may change. Here after a long time something new. The picture is made out of the S-Bahn between the stations Wedding and Gesundbrunnen. The problem with the picture is that the camera has to be moved according to the passing train or the result will be a blurred something. The birds itself are somewhat a highlight on the ring.

The batteries lasted for exactly this picture, only. After that, the camera was going on strike. I'm using batteries, because all of my accu sets have the one or the other failure. And newer accu sets don't get loaded with the charger I have.

Heard it on the radio: today a conference about blogging starts in Berlin (once again) - re:publica08. Funnily the homepage doesn't work with my good old Mozilla (the content of the page(s) doesn't get loaded) and my also not up-to-date Safari breakes down after loading it. Within my older Explorer the content gets displayed, but the introducing menue gets scrambled. How dear you.
