mongo clikke [not a group but colaboration of some of the most important hamburg hiphop artists] - k2


some young mc:



und nun bin ich draussen wie'n blinddarm!

devotion to a dreadfull mashine


beach body 2009

after the devestating effect of yesterdays first circuit training and last weeks wheights training i actually finished a lontime thought and ordered me a concept 2 rowing erg.....

the beauty wihtin

why should i buy ski from gucci?
or why should someone buy coffey for more then 3 € when you can have a great cortado around the corner for just 1,20 €?
is there really need for a style-company to sweep the market with "sport glasses"?
why choose a poloshirt from the so called "designer" tommy hilfiger [he himself pronounced this title and picked the option for very unnatural looking teeth] when there a shorts from [for example] lacoste or fred perry, which have have prooven their style over decades?
why watch football/soccer when there is the rugby worldcup? [zero response in germany]
why listen to madonna when the "originators" as liam howlet from the prodigy refused to work with her / for her new album [his great words were " i could directly sell my soul to the devil"] or from jaques lu cont?

if anyone can answer one of these, besides the last question of course, drop a comment.

more rugby

something for the weekend

as i will be participating in the river rhine marathon, the rugby worldcup in france sports some great games.
here is what it looked like in 2003 in oz ;)
impressive, not to mess with:


by the way, the landlord agreed so that i might move in a couple of months

04 Oktober, 2007

more music

the great resource for some interesting music, weareie has found a great mix of some of the bigges tdancehall anthems that all appeared in some jungle tunes. go trainspotters, hush hush, name all the jungle tunes you can for each sample....
otherwise download the bloggariddims mixes. realy fun listening to..... best one for me ist the 'england story' with some hiphop/dNb/dubstep/grime all london based..

too bad

according to my last post here comes the news:
my future landlord tells the he is not renting the preffered flat to me because "he does not rent to lawyers".
i never experienced discrimination myself but this one is werth a law suit! just to piss of this guy and to tell him, when you`re going to be against a lawyer..... never tell him directly!

woohoo

lawyer v. gravenreuth has been found guilty for fraud!
he plaided not guilty for strange reasons:
chaos at his own office
and leck of knowledge of the laws

[sidenote: gravenreuth is infamous for his "rude" behaviour against internetusers for several reasons]

can be bought at beatport, but remember to check the 2002 original not the 2007 mix, my advise...

19 August, 2007

did i mention?

beatport.com is the first [and only] download-portal for music that works for me. offers reliable quality 320kbs mp3 oder m4a [ipod that is], a slick and functional interface, speed and most important: all the tracks you might have been looking for.
and it offers a good price policy [around 1,49€/1,99€ per track]: 20% goes directly to the artist

in example:
-underground resistance [UR chicago] 'nights of the jaguar' [never been released on cd, i have my vinyl but wanted to support the artists for their great song]
-heartthrob's newbe 'are u gay'
-qualifde! 'badman'

harpune closed

the best club in d'town is now closed [as well as unique, ego and so on] can't wait for the re-opening [and i really feel sorry that they have to leave the harbour; the rest is just rubbish there]
for you to know what an evening in the club looked like:
good music, booming soundsystem, nice people



the first song is a heartthrob remix of newbe 'are u gay'
downloadable at beatport.com

never, never.... NEVER, absolutely never try fishsauce on its own!
you might need 2 liter of beverages to get rid of the taste.....

the beauty

and the rest of the crew:











[you can also mix the titles of the pictures, as they were origianlly inteded]

no, it`s not

it's not the 90 minutes of rowing training but the 45 min per trip on the pushbike to the training that really gives you the rest!

10 Juli, 2007

summer 2007

no comparison to the world mastership summer 2006 [football] but some nice settings:
















Not the best

training conditions:








broken oar from stadtacher training:

11 Juni, 2007

how bad can it be?

your title is hotel heiress while you did inherit nothing, your parents are still alive.
and then you look like you're at least a hundred years old...

10 Juni, 2007

it looks like

i might participate in one of the coolest regattas in germany: the cologne stadtachter together with city lights in cologne a really nice surrounding. 800.000 viewers at the river rhine, tv-stations reporting live and even a police escorte....
and remember: rowing is fun!

ever benn threatened by...

a guy with a fishing rod at the river rhine?

four comments from 4 guys in a rowing boat:
#1: this is a boat route not an aquarium!
#2: did you ever caught a fish in here?
#3: did you ever ate a fish from here?
#4: you don't really want us to leave our boat, do you?

great piece of technology

thin liquid film is an application from the makers of liquid weather [superkaramba plugin for linux desktops, showing the actual weather plus forecasts, plus webcams plus plus plus] that will encode whatever you want to an video-ipod compatible format.... and it supports the transfer to that ipod.
i would call this an extra!

11 April, 2007

just for the music

you don't have to believe me, but hackers is just worth watching because of the soundtrack....

thyssen krupp trennt sich von einem der wahrzeichen düsseldorfs:

[for the english:]
the mayor of düsseldorf compared thyssen krupp to a fish and chips take away.....

10 Januar, 2007

09 Januar, 2007

no mistake this time but good recognition

last morning a girl aksed me in the train, whether i studied at the university of bielefeld.
yes, i did....
and whether i was haning out with a simmilar looking guy?
yes.....
then you were the two we used to called the siamese twins...
yes?
oh, am i talking too much?
no, but i left bielefeld in 2001.... strange, i never noticed i left such an impression on people.

i want one of those

i told you that my mobile is broke, here comes the alternative.... but do i have to travel to the us to get one of these?
