This is now my sixth attempt to write this posting. It turns out that it is much more complicated to write a post in order to support somebody else than for yourself.
So what is this stuff here all about? Ok, actually it’s obvious that it’s about „ROCK“ music!
This posting is about five young men on their mission to bring ROCK back to our lives.
In times of Dubstep, auto-tuned Electro-po(o)p and power-indie-super-stars, this is nothing less but a task for real heroes. These heroes gave themselves the name MAKE MY DAY.
Some months ago they made first attempts with their free EP (Link). I really loved it. It was free and it was good. Really good. Their music is as good as Tequila-Body-Shots with Kate Upton or being Hank Moody for at least one week. Experiencing them live in concert is like Morgan Freeman narrating your life.
In order to Rock hard, they are going to release their super-powers on their first album, “Party Like A Grizzly”
And you guys can support MAKE MY DAY and their mission. All you need is a Pay-Pal-Account or a credit card. This gives you the power to support MAKE MY DAY recording their ALBUM (which is indeed a bloody expensive thing to do).
Just follow this link to the crowdfunding plattform and do something good to the music world:
By the way: All pictures those truly awesome band pictures sou see above are made by LILLI. Aren’t they cool????
In the middle of the last year my wife and I decided, that it would be a good thing to spent the end the year with my wifes family in Minsk. In the review this was a really good decision. It was my first real NYE-Celebration outside of Germany. I really enjoyed this delicious and also a little booze enriched way of celebrating the turn of the year. Besides the NYE we also took a trip to the datscha of my wifes uncle and visited a food-market. Actually we havebeen busy for three days. don’t you think.
My dear friends, I would like to introduce you to Andrej. He is the son of my wife’s two really good friends from moscow. What should I say. He’s really a cool, clever kid and I had really a lot of fun, e.g. while we shot crossbow in our livingroom or playing GT5 on my PS3 (this guy is three yrs. old an drives the mercedes in the game already like a pro!).
Yes, my dear. This is Frankfurt. This is the place, where the good old Ludwig Van stands in the shade of the skyline. This is the city, where bamboo can be seen through a hole in the wall. This is the paradise, where people search for bottles in a dumpster. This is the urban zoo, where you can even see dragons. This is the town, where we stand at the crossroad. And this is jungle, where even people from China build a garden. Wonderful, isn’t it?
As you guys may know, I’m currently working at a university. As part of my job and my interest, from time to time I have to visit conferences and listen to stuff other people hopefully thought about. Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to visit a conference, hosted by “Deutscher Hochschulverband” (which is something like the “advocacy group” of scientific university employed personnel). The Title of this event was “Digital Thinking – who the digital revolution is changing our life”. It was a really good day, especially the contribution of Prof. Gabi Reinmann which you can find here.
Here you can see what I saw the whole day.
As you guys may know from my last weeks post, I’ve been to vienna. I met friends their, ate a lot ( we were here, here, here and here, but I will write about this later)and had a terrific weekend. It was actually also the first time after weeks that I picked up my camera and tried to do some street-photography. I realized that a lot of progress i gained during the last year was been gone, as my pictures were a little to random. At the end I kicked the most of them and only kept those, with a story to tell. Actually I still have the feeling that I kept too much, and that some oft them are not as much storytelling as I thought they could be. So let’s make this post a little interactive here. Which picture should be considered to be kicked out of the post? I’m really looking forward for your comments.
OH(!), btw: There is a really lovely post on this “storytelling photography”-thing on kwerfeldein.de. Also the article itself is in german, the (absolutely amazing) photos are in a “universal” language.
Last weekend we were on a trip to Vienna. I really love this city. There is this mixture of conservatism on the one side and innovative openness on the other. On the first day we went for a walk at the Bellevue, had a short stop at the Klimt-exhibition (I’m relly not so much into the pictures of Klimt, but the really loved to see some of Kokoschka‘s drawings and wondered when the sun would finally break through.
