About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Conquer the underground culture scene of Berlin in the name of the Saviour Hasselhoff

ABOUT ME

I am originally from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sUaD2r11oE

Sometimes I'm full of energy, sometimes I can be lazy (but not too much:). I like to have long, also deep, challenging discussions and I can also talk a lot of sarcastic crap,since lots of years I import humour from UK, because german humour is embarassing since WW2. After a shaolin monk convinced me i quit extensive drugging but i am tolerant if other people smoke crack, drink braincellpoison or sniff chemistry...

If you wanna see Berlin through the eyes of: Tarantino, Kennedy, Christiane F., Bowie, or Dietrich I can help you!

PHILOSOPHY

Nietzsche is my Copilot

I am positive agnostic and try to believe in everything which could be possible. Sometimes that is hard for the brain :-)

Reaching a higher state of consciousness is my aim by becoming a maximalist jedi. I am still working on the manifesto..

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach how to become a shaolin jedi knight without sweating while the whole process

Also I can teach you who to survive the nightlife and alternative tourist attractions in Berlin, which is really exhausting because there is much to do.... I like to show bunkers and abandomed buildings, art galleries in and around berlin if there is time.. Of course I also like to teach people german, history of germany and german culture. And I like to give vintage clothes shopping tours (although Berlin is not such a good place as London for this) I especially like to introduce people to music and movies of which they have probably never heard before (like turkish, indonesian or mexican 70s trashmovies)
