One of the last fortune cookies:

Good to begin well.
Better to end well.

Ok.
Let it end soon.
It doesn't get better anyway...

In the meantime...
The next film to see will be "Lady Bird".
By recommendation of a single female cineast.
Who hasn't seen "3 Days in Quiberon" yet.
But who will catch up soon...

hope she will like it, at least...
don't think that many people will like it as I do...

Eastern.
Tried to stop smoking.
At least for 4 days and 4 hours.
100 hours.
I failed.
Already at the first night I got nearly no sleep.
At 3 a.m. ("Summertime"!) woke up and couldn't get to sleep again.
Left my flat before 11 and waited for the shop in the underground to open.
After that smoked 3 cigarettes and waited more than an hour.
At light snowfall.
Wished everyone who came by happy Eastern.
Really everyone.
Only less than 15% even showed a reaction...

I think this year is a good year for eating ice cream...

Today was a day with 24 degrees Celsius.
Good for my "palmtree"... bad for me.
Days with temperatures ≥40 degrees Celsius this year: 0.
Still counting...

It couldn't be more obvious: RadioEINS is not my station.
From my songs of the 70ies, 80ies, and 90ies was not a single song within their top 30.
Dunno what to do.
Originally I should run my own radio station, but I haven't got the time for this...

so I think I will listen to this station somewhat more...

Seen: The Florida Project.
At the delphiLUX.
A film by the same director who made Tangerine (L.A.).
At the delphiLUX the film ran as an OmU: original with undertitles.
Normally I don't like OmU, because nowadays I'm too slow at reading.
And the Florida Project was no exception.
After some attempts I've given up the reading.
Even at the Spanish parts...
The film was still worth to see...

It was stated in the ad for the film,
that this will be the best film I'll see this year...

I hope the L.A.Times is wrong with that...

I thought my Berlin clock is dead.
There was a power interruption for several hours lately.
Because of some terrorist actions.
After 17'o'clock everything was working again...
but at 19 there was another short break...
which had killed my nowatimes 28-year-old quantum didactics clock.
It didn't say peep or papp anymore.
It didn't react on pressing any knobs.
Everything seemed dead...

For one night I was deeply depressed.
I told everyone (in fact: only Sara) my misery.

I dunno why I put the clock on power again for once.
But suddenly the clock was blinking again...
wanted to be adjusted...

Springtime on the radio...
At RadioEINS the listener are requested to name their favorite three songs of three decades...
Mine are...

70ies:
Fleetwood Mac - Sara (1979)
Bachman - Turner Overdrive - Ain't Seen Nothing Yet (1974)
Manfred Manns Earth Band - You are - I am (1979)

80ies:
Depeche Mode - Stripped (1986)
Art of Noise - paranoimia (1986)
Waterboys - The Whole of the Moon (1985)

90ies:
Portishead - glory box (1994)
R.E.M. - e-bow the letter (1996)
Garbage - You Look So Fine (1999)


I don't think that these songs will be highly mentioned...

Years ago some green finches were my guests.

This year some sparrows are visiting me.
Sometimes several times a day.
They drink the water for the flowers and eat the lavender seeds.

The Berlin image is larger than before.

Sorry to all viewer who still use a 32k modem to read this page.
I really love you.
But our government wants to install fast internet in the smallest hut.
So I think downsized images are somewhat outdated.

Seen: Shape of Water.
After a first try at the Kant cinema at Monday.
It failed.
Didn't broke my legs this time.
Wasn't too late.
Had enough money with me.
But the film ran in a (very) small cinema hall of the Kant...
and there were too many people with the same idea.
At the morning it was said that the film got 4 Oscars.
But I hadn't any ambition to sit 123 minutes in a crowded room.
So I had a second try at Thursday at the CineStar.
It was cinema day.

I think I know now why "Shape of Water" got its Oscars.
Although I think 4 is at least the double number I would had given this fairytale.
Still the film was ok, overall...
although my English seems to be more and more rusty these days...

Today its exactly four years ago.
i'm still asking myself what would had happened if I would had done... simply nothing.
If I wouldn't had (managed to) switched on the telephone...
if I had gone to bed again dispite the chaos around me...
(broken toilet... broken wash basin...)

try to get back in the bed and try to sleep...

The 68th Berlinale... also this year successfully gone by.
Not been in a cinema for two weeks.
And I'm somewhat sure that I won't see any of the films that won a bear...

My next film to see might become The Shape of Water...
maybe... dunno...
it got its Oscars, didn't it?
But I got an eMail which didn't sounded that enthusiastic about that film...

Currently in Rhythmbox:

Pisces, February 19 - March 20 - you have a living imagination and thinks that you're hunted by CIA or FBI. You have only little influence on your surrounding and people take amiss on your presentation of power. You miss conviction and be a coward most of the time. Pisces do terrible things to small animals.

Not fallen or broken bones this time.
And to see this movie was somewhat inexpensive.
It costed nothing.
It was the tenth movie with my Yorck card.
The film itself was by Woody Allen.
The daughter of a wonder wheel owner comes home
because she's having troubles with her husband...
who is a mafiosi.

At the end she disappears.

The film was ok and not ok.

The series no. 16 starts here...
I'm alive... I think... somewhat...
Sorry.
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...
