Everyone of us knows this!
(Not me.)


Imported: ZZ TOP

(The first six longplayer are from a 3 CD box "The ZZ Top Sixpack".)
Full throttle, Old Man... B-)


One day later...
imported: John Lee Hooker
no 12 albums, but at least chill out, the healer,
and is work together with canned heat, hooker 'n heat...


Seen: Alita, Battle Angel.
Real thrash.
All the time while the film ran I wondered when her computer enlarged eyes would fall out...
but different to thrash like 50 shades of grey, this is a warning:
I will see a second or even a third part of it, asking me all the time...
will her eyes plop out this time? ;-)

I'm now proud owner of a DVD player for my laptop... again...
after the build-in drive failed somewhat exactly one week after the warranty timed out...
nearly exactly three years after it was bought.
Point of cost: nearly 3 music CD's.
Not funny, but ok...
The external player worked without any additional installation...
under ubuntuMATE Linux.
The first imported CD's: Aerosmith, get a grip and 6 others...
The first film seen: The Big Lebowski in OV.
Again... a very nice movie.
It let me forget a bit my anger that I had to puzzle my pills for the next week on my own... more than 1 hour...
but that's a different story.
The first thing I'd done after the film was to put some water in the freezer...
for a White Russian...


When I look at the evening sky and see a bright blueish star in the haze, currently...
I think: you can't be Sirius.

This is also something what a Redshift official mentioned to me in an eMail... in the late 90ies or early 2000's.
When I bought Redshift 2 for the Mac at that time, I was wondering where or how to find alpha Canis Major.
There was none visible. Because of a programming error...

This graffiti was already photographed last year with a different camera...
Interesting fact is, that it remained for at least 4 months...
while the graffiti of image 1 of this year is already overpainted.


February 5: the year of the pig has started this night.
Normally this is a sign of luck.
Lets hope for luck... for all mankind...

Berlinale 2019

The 69th Berlinale film festival has started.
I'm somewhat sure that I won't watch any film in that time...


If one could read German... I've finished a recovery of the pages of 2002.
I don't think that I will ever manage to do an English version.
On one of the last entries of that page there is a parrot joke.
It goes like this:

A guy is browsing in a pet shop and sees a parrot sitting on a little perch. It doesn't have any feet or legs. The guy says aloud, "Jeesh. I wonder what happened to this parrot?"

The parrot says, "I was born this way. I'm a defective parrot."

"Holy shit", the man replies. "You actually understood and answered me!"

"I got every word", says the parrot. "I happen to be a highly intelligent, thoroughly educated bird."

"Oh yeah?", the man asks, "Then answer this, how do you hang onto your perch without any feet?"

"Well", the parrot says, "this is very embarrassing, but since you asked, I wrap my willie around this wooden bar like a little hook. You can't see it because of my feathers."

"Wow" says the guy, "you really can understand and speak English, can't you?"

"Actually, I speak both Spanish and English and I can converse with reasonable competence on almost any topic: politics, religion, sports, physics, philosophy. I'm especially good at ornithology. You really ought to buy me. I'd be a great companion."

The guy looks at the $200 price tag. "Sorry, but I just can't afford that."

"Pssssssst" says the parrot, "I'm defective, so the truth is, nobody wants me cause I don't have any feet. You can probably get me for $20, just make the guy an offer!"

The man offers $20 and walks out with the parrot.

Weeks go by. The parrot is sensational. He has a great sense of humor, he's interesting, he's a great pal, he understands everything, he sympathises, and he's insightful. The guy is delighted.

One day the guy comes home from work and the parrot goes "Psssssssssssst" and motions him over with one wing. "I don't know if I should tell you this or not, but it's about your wife and the postman."

"What are you talking about?" asks the man.

"When the postman delivered today, your wife greeted him at the door in a sheer black nighty and kissed him passionately."

"WHAT???" the man asks incredulously. "THEN what happened?"

"Well, then the postman came into the house and lifted up her nightie and began petting her all over." reported the parrot.

"My God!" the guy exclaims. "Then what?"

"Then he lifted up the nightie, got down on his knees and began to lick her all over, starting with her breasts and slowly going down...."

"WELL???" demands the frantic man, "THEN WHAT HAPPENED?"

"Damned if I know. I got a hard-on and fell off my perch."

Transvaalstraße, Winter 2018/19

The garages at the Transvaalstrasse in winter...
There was no car in front of it... a somewhat unique opportunity.
So a bit rain didn't disturbed much...


Some days ago the smell of drinkinking chocolate came around.
My first thought was: ...
The smells of cat feed, wall paint, cigatettes and sports cigarettes are no problem...
but drinking chocolate... really unfair...
The second thought was: a cup of hot chocolate wouldn't a that bad idea.
There was a box with milk and this Milka drink still around.
So at the following morning I warmed 2 cups of milk.
The taste of chocolate somewhat didn't came up... even after 4 piled spoons.
The color of the chocolated milk was somewhat ok, but it had only the faint idea of chocolate.
At least it wasn't also that sweet as expected.
A closer look at the box revealed some age... 15 years above...
best used before end of 2004...

Seen: Fahrenheit 11/9 @ delphiLUX.
OmU. A film by Micheal Moore.
The magazine Tip said the film is troublesome.
The Kino-King Knut Elstermann (RadioEINS, RBB) finds it worth to see.
How troublesome is the Tip..?

The pictures above are somewhat special:
images of a camera, which had slept for a very long time...

While the Canon is somewhat history...
and I cannot efford a new camera at least until Xmas..
and because I didn't like the idea of making handy photos only,
there was the question what to do...

The Olympus still worked...
although it had batteries in it for about 8 1/2 years.
It had images of a very long taken place concert with one of my niches,
images of before the reunion about 9 years ago,
and a forgotten H&M ad which will follow...

and at that day I also wanted to go into Baerenland...


...casting shadows on the winter sky

After about 4 1/2 years my computer is now an official Linux computer.
About 1/4 up to a 1/2 year before it gets put aside. Maybe.
At least it has now an official Tux above the screen...

Hopefully at the next computer it will not take that long...

Maybe something which might appear on my personal review of 2019:
Drink of the Year: 1l Gluehwein with Gummibears...
Doesn't matter which sort of Gluehwein.
It should be at least somewhat warm. (Cold its somewhat eklig...)
The Gummibears shouldn't be too soft...
And most important: a bed should be close enough to reach...
This might also help this blue eyed beauty...
instead of a P@rship ad...
its only an idea...
completely irrelevant...
maybe influenced by residual alcohol... ;-)

You have survived... until now...
The series no. 17 starts here...

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 most of the time...
Still seeing only about 75%.
Sometimes it seems that the disabled region enlarges.
Not fallen... for about 15 months now.
I go now always faster than my nearly 86-years-old mum.
Not because I am faster, sadly.
Going down the stairs is still more difficult than going up.
Shortly after the start of the new year I stopped smoking for 100 hours.
Until hour 66...
Maybe I'll try this more often this year.
Sleeping is still disturbed... nearly regulary... doesn't matter much.
Current weight: 119kg +/-3...
