About Me


I came to the conclusion saving the world might be appropriate.


I'm enjoying the life simply as it comes, sometimes with a little help from my side (buying plane tickets, paying visa fees, purchasing consumer goods, etc.)

Apparently most of my german fellows are keen on posting german sayings, thus I feel kind of obliged to add one by myself:

Nuff de Kolbe, nei de Zingge, morge mur ma Wassa tringge, übermorge moschd, proschd!


Ah, there I got a good one, a line from C.Zafon's Angel's game:

Nihilism is an attitude, not a doctrine. Place the flame of a candle under the testicles of a nihilist and notice how quickly he sees the light of life.

It often ends in splendid parties i cant always recall the beginnings of anymore.

Basic human needs: Eating, sleeping, and everything with a cooled création de hop barley and yeast. I'm German after all.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like those books which unfold little cardboard things when opening...
