snow pains

Posted on

Went outside to a park. It had snowed a little the night before, but by now it was almost all gone: Germany didn’t have a plan for the next legislative period. A train had derailed near Seattle, prompting the President of the United States to complain about the infrastructure (he had proposed to cut rail […]


gin and the cat

Posted on

The night had turned into a night out: I ended up in a bar in the city center. The name of the bar has been lost in a stream of vodka and gin, but I remember talking to some people from the UK there. They were very sad about Brexit, and they said they were […]


ugliness

Posted on

I took a little stroll outside to test the replacement camera that I had just received: Walking around Luxembourg felt good. It was a clean and pretty place. Parts of its university campus were nice to look at as well. But definitely not all of them. There was a certain Ikea-ness here and there: And […]


VR dude

Posted on

Remember how I went and played virtual reality games when I was in Taiwan, but then I got nauseous from them? Well, I was invited to a VR lab in Bielefeld today, and it was amazing! They let me paint in virtual space: And paint I did: Seriously, you have to try this. It is […]


a question and an answer

Posted on

Went to see my grandma today. She lives in a small town about two hours away. There were cookies, and there was tea. When we went out for a walk, we passed by these graffiti that someone had sprayed on a wall: WHY SO SERIOUS? one of them wanted to know. UGLY, said another one. […]


Slower Slap

Posted on

Spent the whole day editing pictures for the new weird beard video that I wanted to make: And I realized that some of those pictures were of some pretty damn happy moments. I mean: daaaaayyyuuuum. Oh, and I wrote up another vodka review from Tajikistan for SlowerPulse. And a travel book review for BookSlap. A […]


the s-word

As is the habit of snow in this part of Germany, it had all but melted in a matter of days: It was a sad sight to behold, but Feivel and I went out anyway, and we looked around and some of us peed and pooped a lot, and we could see the grass and […]


curating my life

Posted on

I was starting to feel a bit annoyed. The snow was nice: The dwarf beeches were nice: But sitting around at home, waiting for my Iranian letter of invitation wasn’t very nice. I’d get things done, sure. Taxes, invoices, photos, and whatnot. But it felt like I was merely a sort of curator of my […]


stroll in the snow

Posted on

Another day, another stroll in the park. We walked past the dwarf beeches… …and into the forest: It started snowing when we got there: And it was quite pretty: I filmed another Let’s Walk test video in which I talked about Trump’s recent attack on the free media: Oh, and I figured that my camera […]


malfunction

Went back to the dwarf beeches. A few years earlier, the town had decided to put up a collection of photographs of them. They looked very nice, but I still don’t quite understand why they would place them right next to the actual trees: I mean, it’s not like Bad Nenndorf doesn’t have any other […]


times without mystery

Posted on

Another walk, another Christmas tree: This time we saw two distant lights in the forest (probably just some other people walking their dogs): I started wondering about the absence of mystery on the planet we inhabit today. Everything seemed to have a reasonable explanation. There were no ghosts, no demons, no supernatural beings. Maybe I […]


trees

Posted on

There was a big old Christmas tree that had appeared in the park: Worshipping green trees in the midst of winter seems like an interesting absorption of pre-Christian customs (or religious practices) into Christianity. There was a Christmas band playing Christmas tunes under the Christmas tree. Feivel and I didn’t stay long, though. We were […]


a story in the dark

Posted on

We went out a bit later than usual today: Still, we figured we’d extend our walk into the forest, so at some point it was almost completely dark (the winter sun sets early up here in the north): And when we got a little lost in the woods I remembered a story about a New […]


a flexible leash is still a leash

Posted on

Same procedure as the day before: I got some office work done, then I grabbed the dog and went out for a walk. I took another Let’s Walk video on the way, because I needed to test my new equipment: Oh, and Feivel was loving the shit out of the forest: As you can see […]


head mount

Posted on

Home. I replied to emails all day. It seems strange that, even though I have a disclaimer on my site telling people to keep it short when they decide to write me, I still get some long emails. Oh, and I wrote some invoices, and I did some stuff for my taxes. Then I went […]


drawing lines on maps

Posted on

When I left Nürnberg, it was snowing again: I spent some time on the Autobahn: Then I rode a train. And another train. And then I was home. When I got there, I found a video on my hard drive that I had forgotten to post until now: Drawing lines on maps.

We went to the Christkindlmarkt today, one of the most famous Christmas Markets in the world. And yes, it is called “Christ Child Market”. Nobody is trying to rename it, and our values are not under attack. It is, however, interesting that there are two entities that deliver Christmas presents in Germany. One is Santa […]


highball

Posted on

With the presentations behind me, I got together with my friends to be merry: We had decided on the town of Nürnberg. (I could spell it as Nuremberg, but what the hell is that supposed to mean, and where did you get the “M” from? It’s called Nürnberg, or maybe it can be called Nurnberg […]


Speaking In Immenstadt

Posted on

Today was going to be the last one. No more presentations in 2017. No more presentations in 2018. And probably in 2019, too. Though I wasn’t one hundred percent sure about that, yet. A lot can happen in two years. Anyway, I drove further south today, and it started snowing: It kept doing that all […]


Speaking In Weingarten

Posted on

Sometimes I like to stop somewhere on the way to my next venue. Today I found a toilet. I really hadn’t expected to find a fucking toilet: Talk about protecting the environment all you want, but there are still people out there who decide to dump their toilets in the countryside. Fucking. Assholes. When I […]
