The BAL Ball

Who, what? Silly wordplay? Me?

My friends over at Berlin Art Link are celebrating their one year anniversary.THE BAL BALL. Yeih!

Come make new friends like Devon Elise Atkins (visuals), Casione Phil and Andy No Andy.
PS. I would really have to work on my name if I decide to join The Arts one day.

What’s in your fridge?

If Christmas wasn’t so far away I would have wished for “Where they create” by photographer Paul Barbera.

Photos and descriptions of the spaces where creative minds create. Interviews included. Not only how their daily environment influences their output, but also what’s on their desk and even what’s in their fridge.

So here’s to a Januray present for myself.

Berlin inside

Saw this mini poster on a light pole a couple of weeks ago.

Timed with the upcoming Berlin Fashion Week Liganova (in cooperation with Berlin magazine “TRAFFIC – News to-go”) launched the latest edition of the seasonal Berlin Inspires guide.

“Local heroes” from the fields of fashion, design, art, media and culture share their insider tips on where to go and what to see.

Slow down and breathe

Most of the music I post belongs to the energy kicker category but here’s one for the contemplative state of mind.

That makes you feel like a minute contains more than 60 seconds.

Obviously (as a new wave fan) Tuxedomoon’s In a Manner of Speaking is a given power ballad on my meditative soundtrack.

For a slightly more sensual feeling go for this cover by Nouvelle Vague.

“That’s what’s fascinating – the girls.”

Time to feature photographer and friend Autumn Sonnichsen. A wonderful person doing brilliant work – and with amazing cooking skills and a dynamite laugh. What more can you ask for?

Much more nudity here (also an “about” video with Autumn but everybody knows that sex sells, so…)

The soundtrack of a home

What does yours sound like?

Comprising my mother’s voice and the sounds of her garden, this video is my first Pogo mix of the real world.

The Power of Silence.

Tonight Cookies is hosting the preview of “The Artist”.
I’m in Munich.
The dresscode is “black suit”.
Would have had just the right outfit.

“I’m not interested in how people move; I’m interested in what makes them move.”

Philippina “Pina” Bausch. A German performer of modern dance, choreographer, dance teacher and ballet director. One of the leading influencers in the world of modern dance since the 1970s (until her death in 2009).

Helmut Newton’s “Crocodile Eating Ballerina”, from the Pina Bausch Ballet ‘Keushleitslegende’, Wuppertal, 1983.

Wim Wenders’ film Pina was presented at this year’s Berlinale. The first 3D dance film has been in the works for a couple of years, initially halted when Pina Bausch passed away during early stages of production.
The film features a number of her works, including “Café Muller,” “Sacre Du Printemps,” “Vollmond” and “Kontakthof.”

Joy from the bottom and up.

Somehow my mood is better when I wear colorful socks. You know what I mean?

When was the last time you wrote a letter? – like a handwritten one.
