First of all, there's a queer friending meme going on. I don't remember there ever being one of those before, so yay!

Secondly, I saw Dufus and Amy Rude yesterday and it was pretty awesome. Cut for mini concert review )

You know what I need? A more generic music icon. I miss my Photoshop, why can't I have it at work? :(

01. Dear Flist: Pride week starts today, so I maded you a muxtape (More on that tomorrow.). As far as technical mixing merits go, it's so-so, but there are good songs! So give it a listen if you want.

02. Dear weather: I will tolerate those clouds, but don't you DARE rain!

03. Dear Berliners: Come to the GLBTQ street fair today! There are lots of infos and hopefully fun to be had! If you want to meet up, I'll probably be hanging out at Lambda's booth. (If you want to be sure to catch me, come tomorrow around noon, since that's when I have booth-sitting duties.)

04. Dear German team: I have no clue what happened, but please keep on playing that way forever, thanks.

05. Dear Turkish team: As much as I like you for patriotic duty alone, did you really have to do that? Now I won't dare to leave the house Wednesday night. German-Turkish deathmatch, yikes!

WOOT!! Quite in the original sense of the term, even. :D Our team did pretty good, especially in the beginning - some great passes, FINALLY they managed to fill up their gaps and not kick the ball wherever all the time. And how many hugs did I want to give Lukas Podolski? For all that he is... let's say: not the brightest crayon in the box, he kicked ass and his little sadface at scoring against his home country was precious (if a bit silly). The bows and everything after the game felt a bit over the top, considering this was just a preliminary match* against a team we haven't lost to in a long time, but of course then they had to go play "One Moment In Time" and make me cry. YES, I ADMIT IT: This stupid, stupid song gets me every time. I don't even know. Anyway, bring on Croatia!

*(Then again, it WAS the first German victory in any Euro match since 1996.)

P.S. Another cheerful occasion: Late, but [livejournal.com profile] snuffkin, I wish you all the best and a happy birthday! ♥ ♥ ♥

Two things [livejournal.com profile] nairie, [livejournal.com profile] shivaluna, [livejournal.com profile] ladybanteerin and me discussed earlier tonight. It's kind of random, but I'd love to know how different the preferences are.

Lady: "This isn't yours?"
Sandra: "... No."
Lady: "... Oh. Ok then." [Turns around and rings bell next door.]
Sandra: [Closes door.] "Well, that was random."

On a completely different note, they announced the selection of players for Germany's national team at the European Football Championship. I haven't been following the Bundesliga closely enough to really pass an informed judgement, but I have to say that I wasn't really surprised they didn't include Timo Hildebrandt. Somewhat sad (what is Lahm going to do without him?), but not surprised. Otherwise... don't know, all my favourites (Odonkor! Schweinsteiger! Lahm!) are still there, there are some that I don't know (three second league players, wow), there are some that I expected (Kuranyi) and some I didn't (Hitzelsperger, don't know why). Overall, I'm just really excited to see how they're going to do and happy to get some international matches again (since I'm kind of blah about our national leagues in general).

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] refche! You're awesome and deserve all the best for this new year. ♥ And a belated happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] rawkenr0ll, who's fabulous and happiness-deserving as well. \o/

I have slept for maybe one hour tonight. Urgh, random insomnia. Then I picked Dana up from the airport, we squeed over her tales and videos from Asylum, and now I'll go back to bed. But not before posting my take on the awesome draw yourself as a teenager meme that has been making the rounds. Excuse the quality, I am so very, very out of drawing practice, and since my scanner still refuses to work I needed to take a photo instead. But it looked like too much fun to pass it up.

The artist as a young person - 14, 18, 24 yrs )

Everyone should do this meme, btw, it's really interesting.

First of all, a belated happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] ladybanteerin and [livejournal.com profile] peaches, and a late, but still in time, happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] shivaluna! Love you all and wish you many good things.

Secondly, what's the most logical reaction to reading too many ghost stories and freaking yourself out? Why, visit your favourite cemetery of course! Which I did yesterday, because I haven't been there for over a year and I finally have a proper camera to take some pictures. (Sorry if you're sick of my 1834 photo posts lately, but I'm still excited about this and need to practice my skillz. Tbh, there will be even more tomorrow night or so, since we're going to do drag king dress-up.)

Don't fear the reaper, or something along those lines. )

Speaking of Supernatural, I... don't actually have anything to say about the latest episode. Sorry for failing at fandom at the moment?

01. A Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] sinuous_curve and the same, belatedly, to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] moonix! ♥

02. I have not yet gotten around to watching SPN or The Office, and there don't seem to be any ANTM uploads anywhere. Woe!

03. The actual reason for posting: Dana, Toni and I spent Walpurgisnacht at the Mauerpark, which turned out surprisingly nice and peaceful. Lots of happy people of all subcultural persuasions just hanging out, drinking (2,50 Euros for vodka red bull?!), talking, drumming, some played ball or frisbee or did acrobatics stuff, and several people were giving out free hugs. (One really, really cute punky girl had a sign, but I'm lame and didn't dare asking.) It was all very summery and reminded me of music festivals (now I'm even more bummed that the chances of me getting to one this summer are so low), only with more police *lol* - I took some pictures:

Mauerpark at night, plus random camwhoring )

04. Now to bed - we're having a counseling workshop tomorrow, and for the first time since dropping out of uni I'll be holding a talk, teaching the rest of the group about small, yet effective interventions (as in: counseling techniques, not the kind where you try to get someone to get help). Should be fun! (Again, not being sarcastic - strangely enough I never had problems with public speaking.)

So, tomorrow there is a plebiscite on whether to keep air traffic at Tempelhof airport, as opposed to closing it down in favour of the international airport at Schönefeld, turning the area into a leisure park kind of thing. Conservative parties are for it, ostensibly because it's a historical site and whatnot (who cares that there are plans of making it into a museum, thus rendering the argument void), the governing parties are for closing it, since there's barely any traffic there anyway, and it's one of the terms on which Schönefeld was allowed to be turned into an international airport.

Now, the "Bild", Germany's biggest tabloid, ran a hilarious list of 100 "reasons" why Tempelhof should stay open for air traffic, and I felt the overwhelming need to comment on it. I was going to do it in German, since this is not likely anything that anyone out of Berlin cares about, but the idiocy was too good not to share with the rest of the world, and I like translating.

Some of the 100 best arguments, if by 'best' you mean 'ahahaha, are you kidding me?' )

"Be Tempelhof. Be Berlin."
"Mommy, when I grow up, can I be an airport?" Can't argue with that kind of reasoning.

I randomly picked up "Piranha" yesterday, a free music mag, and it had a short article about Panic. The writing is delightfully bad (at least they got most of the facts right, unlike certain others *cough*siegessäule*cough*) and I thought some of you might get a kick out of it, so I translated. This post brought to you by "Take your fucking early morning construction work elsewhere and let me sleep, dammit."

Panic at the Disco - Make love, not emo )

You'd have to read (and understand) the German article for a full taste of the weird phrases they used, but I tried to do my best. (And sorry there are no scans, still can't get my scanner to work - but it only had the usual promo pic, anyway.)

Looks like I still have a chance at getting the barista job! *dances* I had given up on it, since they said they'd call mid-last-week (and I kept putting off forgetting to call them), but I just got a call and they said I did really well with the try-out and invited me back for an interview with the manager (who had been away when I was there) next Tuesday. Keep all fingers crossed for me, please? Because I really, really want this job.

Anyway, I finally remembered to listen to the new(-ish) Mountain Goats album, and I really like it. Quick song-by-song thoughts:

Heretic Pride )

And then the new Mindless Self Indulgence album leaked, and it's fabulous. Again, short thoughts while listening for the first time:

If )

Lastly, in a random fit of creativity, I made icons. 30 all in all, a random mix of MCR and FBR bands. Have a preview:

The rest is at my icon journal.

(P.S. Just wanted to say, I'm kind of moody and failing at commenting, but I'm reading everything. So, general *hugs* to all who need them, and a big "yay!" for all who deserve it. Once job search and everything is done I'll hopefully be back at full power.

First of all, Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] stillabet! :D

Secondly, the working week of doom is over. And what is the first thing to do with a moment of free time? Why, do silly memes, of course!

That username meme )

ETA: Oh, also! Random, but I made this for dinner last night and liked it so much that sharing the recipe (such as there is) seemed like a good idea. Chickpea curry with rucola )

P.S. [livejournal.com profile] previolace, we need to talk about next weekend! *pokes*

ETA2: There's a wedding today in the complex next door (I don't really know what it is, some old industrial buildings and yards that now houses some ateliers, practice spaces, offices, that kind of thing) and they're playing this lively, Eastern-European-sounding music (accordions!) and laughing and yelling, it's kind of awesome. I like hearing happy people.

Now that I am in possession of a non-shitty camera, I obviously have to join Project 365. In order not to spam you even more than I already do, there's now a separate blog for those photos:

(Tentatively titled until I come up with something that doesn't suck.)

So if you want to see random pics from Berlin and my life, go there.

Bollywood party tonight, haha. That is so not my scene, but it sounds like it's going to be fun. Off to prettify myself now!

(P.S. Yes, I'm neglecting fandom at the moment. Promise that's going to change soon!)

Imagine a small production of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch". Now imagine it in a tiny little church (a real one, with tower and vaults and everything), played to an audience of maybe 50 people, roughly 60% of which were old ladies. (The remaining 40 percent, except for [livejournal.com profile] kaoru_is_here and myself, seemed to consist of the church's youth group.) It was one of the most WTF-inducing evenings of my life.

In which there is a nice play and a WTF-inducing encore )

Yes, I heard "Highway to Hell" performed in church, with the elderly ladies of the church choir as backup vocals. I never thought I would one day be able to say this.

(P.S. You have roughly half an hour left to bid at Sweet Charity!)
herzverstreut_bu: (XKCD - btw i'm strange)
First of all, thanks for the good wishes for the job interview! I have no clue how it went, since the manager was nice, but inscrutable - she said they'd call next week to let me know if they want me.

Secondly, I'm made of fail and forgot [livejournal.com profile] anglepoiselamp's birthday. Happy belated birthday, hon! ♥

Thirdly, the results from that "tell me things to take pictures of" meme - Plus some random pics from my neighbourhood )

By the way, [livejournal.com profile] kaoru_is_here and me are going to watch a staging of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" tomorrow. It's one of my favourites movies and I've been wanting to see a stage version for ages, so hopefully they're going to be good.

ETA: WHAT? This is just... I don't even know what to say. Hunting and beating up KIDS?? Because they are/dress "EMO"? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS WORLD? Just. Seriously. There are many, many news these days that leave me fucking angry, but the dimension and utter senselessness of this makes me speechless. Not enough to stop me from writing half an essay, apparently. )

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] submerge and [livejournal.com profile] devil_spooky!! Clearly people born March 24th are the best. :D

Also, thank you to everyone who sent me good wishes! (I'm trying to thank everyone personally, poke me if you somehow got overlooked.) ♥

Hey, since I can take proper photos now, how about doing that picture meme? Tell me something in my life that you'd like to see a picture of and I shall take a photo of it!
