Wallow in memories


It’s been a long time. And it´s been a while I wrote here.

I have fond memories of the SWR3 Travis Hautnah concert for which I won tickets that time. It was on May 10, 2007, I was one of lucky hundred radio listeners who had the chance to get real close to this band. I always liked them, especially their second album – The Man Who – from 1999. So it was for sure a very special evening and I will never forget.



Driftwood from Travis ; probably my favorite song from them

Mind journeys




So, I am equipped for a little thought travel from home!

In any case, it is based on the unusual changing circumstances, and so important to free oneself in mind.

I’ve got myself an Idles shirt from the new album collection – Ultra Mono – , and I enjoy listening to this album too. I do letting my anger out now album. I like it, and it pushes pretty nice.

And I got the book from 1bike1world. Nala and Dean have been with me since last year, and I love to follow them on YouTube. There journey and camaraderie, is such an positiv and heartwarming story. And so I can see in the many comments, very much needed in this times. This is for sure the main reason there are already listed on top of the most selling books right now.

And for me, they matches two things I really love: Cats and travelling.

No Time for Love Like Now



Michael Stipe released his new single - No Time For Love Like Now - as a studio video some days ago. This song was created in collaboration with producers Big Red Machine better known as Aaron Dessner from The National and Justin Vernon from Bon Iver. And I have here some 15 years old pictures from a R.E.M. concert in Stuttgart. I stood in the first row, after running!

There´s no love too small!



I miss you my dear friend, Phantom 105.2 FM Dublin! I listened to this radio station with a lot of pleasure for years, when ever I could. Every day! And as a huge „fan“ I made this collage many years ago. The Topic was: Things I love, so I honored them.

And here an another example of excellent music. I love this unplugged version from the song Last January so much. It´s from – my – band of the moment – The Twilight Sad — This is pure painful beauty. Be careful, this hurts!

Last January

And I found this – Love Letter – to Phantom, so read….so I am not alone, who had this strong connection to them.

Love will tear us apart again



I’ve been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand
Could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man?
Lose sensations, spare the insults leave them for another day
I’ve got the spirit, lose the feeling, take the shock away

It’s getting faster, moving faster now, it’s getting out of hand
On the tenth floor, down the backstairs into no man’s land
Lights are flashing, cars are crashing, getting frequent now
I’ve got the spirit, lose the feeling, let it out somehow

What means to you, what means to me and we will meet again
I’m watching you, I watch it all, I take no pity from your friends
Who is right, who can tell and who gives a damn right now?
Until the spirit, new sensation takes hold, then you know

‚Til the spirit, new sensation takes hold, then you know
‚Til the spirit, new sensation takes hold, then you know

I’ve got the spirit, but lose the feeling
I’ve got the spirit, but lose the feeling
Feeling, feeling
Feeling, feeling
Feeling, feeling
