Hi! I'm not around much at the moment, because offline life is busy and I'm not really doing anything fannish (except having caught up with Doctor Who, which I stopped watching in early season three, but my thoughts on this are many and disjointed and I don't feel like trying to bring them into any sort of coherent form). To prove that I'm not dead, here are some more graveyard photos!

Shiva, Kerstin, Christoph and I visited Südwestkirchhof Stahnsdorf yesterday, a huge cemetery from the early 20th century. It belonged to East Germany and fell into disrepair, and now it's mostly a forest with withered gravestones, mausoleums and fountains scattered throughout - all quiet and peaceful and really beautiful. I originally wanted to go because the British military cemetery that is located within the graveyard is supposed to be haunted, but other parts turned out to be much more interesting

Desaturation makes everything better. )

In other and completely unrelated news: less than a week before I'll be heading to the Balkans with [personal profile] morningfine! :D If everything goes as planned (and it'd better!) we'll fly to Athens on Saturday, take the bus to Gjirokastër and make our way through Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Croatia to fly back from Zagreb on the 16th. WORDS CAN NOT CONTAIN HOW EXCITED I AM. Is it Saturday yet?

There's been a lot of new street art popping up in our neighbourhood lately and some of it is really pretty, so I thought I'd share. Maybe Wedding is really becoming the new hip district, like everyone has claimed for years. *lol*

Wild boars and Brad Pitt )

In fannish news, [livejournal.com profile] shiroi_chi got me to watch "Band of Brothers" (I can't even say why I've not seen it before, considering I love war movies) and I might be a bit in love already. Unfortunate side effect: when I was woken up by a bad thunderstorm this morning, my brain refused to parse the sounds as anything but bombs for a few minutes. /o\ Not a good way to start the day.
herzverstreut_bu: (Misc - hedwig - the new berlin wall)
Along the Spree in Friedrichshain district a stretch of the Berlin Wall, the so-called East Side Gallery was preserved and painted by artists as a memorial. Over the years, the painting have cracked and faded, and tourists and Berliners alike have added their own little graffiti - quotes, names, greetings, the usual. I love the way that those inscriptions have made it a bit of a memorial to the many different people in this city as well, and when I heard that the city was planning on restoring the original paintings, I kept meaning to go to the Gallery and take some pictures of my favourite graffiti, before they were removed. Last night I had an hour to kill in the area before meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] paraka*, so I went down there. Sadly, half of the wall has already been cleaned, but I want to share some of what could be found on there. Image-heavy!

Love is all you need. Anarchy is the answer. Fly like a mouse. )

*Meeting [livejournal.com profile] paraka is a whole different story, because she's one of my oldest LJ friends and getting to meet her was awesome. ♥

Just FYI...

... If I vanish some time during the next days, this will be the reason:

Someone call the Winchesters, please )

"Berlin: Gruesome Death by Murderous Doll." Watch out for the headlines next week.

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?
herzverstreut_bu: (Misc - berlin is for lovers)
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.)

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:

From Wedding With Love

(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!)
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. )
herzverstreut_bu: (CS - vicky-t - keytar)
Here are some pics of the thrift store bargains I squeed about yesterday. Excuse the shitty quality, my camera doesn't like anything that's not outside in the blazing sun. :(

Considering my current line of work it really is kind of surprising that I'm not more of a fashion fiend. Then again, not. )

On a completely different note, I listened to Metro Station for the first time earlier, and it's very much catering to my newfound love for kind of silly, kind of electronic catchy pop. Someone needs to bring the RRRGL tour to Europe! Also, I need more music to satisfy my current craving for electronica. I've been mainly listening to Robots in Disguise, CSS and IAMX, with a bit of Ratatat, Peaches and Björk's more electronic stuff thrown in - can anyone recommend something along those lines?
herzverstreut_bu: (xkcd - Rainbow!)
So, Pride parade was... wet. Wet, but fun!

Report and photos )

We were really, really glad to get home afterwards, though. Everyone was wet, tired and hungry, so we had some pizza, randomly watched 3x09 of Queer as Folk, Dana and me both took a nap, ... and then suddenly it was 7 p.m., which was the time we had apparently planned to meet up with Shiva for the Midsummer renfaire.

Some more pics )
herzverstreut_bu: (QaF - Fun!)
As you might have noticed, I'm back from the festival - tired, slightly sunburned, but definitely happy. :D Let me tell you all about the weekend:

And it's all Medusa's fault. (Photos, beware!) )

Again next year, no question. This was, to say it with Trisha, like coming home. ♥
herzverstreut_bu: (Pride)
Now that both Pride and our not-so-big meetup are officially over, here are the promised pictures and other impressions.

*waves rainbowflag* )

Sunday we were joined by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] teh_jules and spent our time brunching and lounging at the Dachkammer and in the park and then watching QaF 507 (SO SO SO MUCH (angsty) LOVE FOR THIS EPISODE!!!) and stuff, but that is a tale for another day. (Because I'm tired and want to begin catching up with all your posts.)

But may I just say: Girls, you're all so very, very awesome and I had the most brilliant time! *loves*

ETA: (Yeah, still not in bed yet. Damn, you guys were productive those last days! :X) Head over to Nora's LJ for more (and better) pics!
ETA2: Or to Trisha's
