Tonight

9. Januar 2017

It all starts tonight
Tonight’s the night I guess
So let’s go take some drugs
And let’s go have some sex
The first time it’s alright
The future starts tonight

And you cannot make everything alright
But you could stop being wrong
Tonight
Tonight

And someone’s getting born
And someone’s getting killed
Somebody falls in love
Somebody falls from a window sill
But you, you just sit tight
Hiding out from life

Oh and you cannot set the world to rights
But you could stop being wrong
Oh tonight
Yeah tonight

Well, the past devours the future
The world is changing the shape
And someone’s getting a piercing done for goodness sake!
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Yeah tonight

Oh and all the culture vultures
And all the snot-nosed kids
And all the so-called artists, wannabes and never-dids
You claim you’re not involved
But you’re in up to your neck
The night belongs to lovers
So show some respect

Oh and you cannot set the world to rights
But you could stop being wrong
Oh tonight
Oh tonight
Oh tonight
Oh tonight

Oh tonight

(Jarvis Cocker – Tonight)

Soundtrack of our lives

20. Dezember 2016

There goes my childhood
There goes all I thought was true
With the friends I knew and the ones I left behind

And there goes my heroes
And all that I used to trust
With the ones I cursed and the ones who crossed the line

But I believe I’ve found
A better way to satisfy
Yeah, I believe I’ve found
A better way to satisfy your kind

There goes my heartache
There goes all my troubles too
With the dreams that flew and the ones who let me down

And there goes my ego
And all that I had to share
With the ones who cared and the ones who said: That’s mine!

But I believe I’ve found
A better way to satisfy
Yeah, I believe I’ve found
A better way to satisfy your kind

And if I will make it I don’t know
And if I will hate it I don’t care
As long as you’re not afraid to get by

There goes my life
And all that I had to face
With the human race and the children of denial

But I believe I’ve found
A better way to satisfy
Yeah, I believe I’ve found
A better way to catch your eye
Yeah, I believe I’ve found
A better way to satisfy
Yeah I believe I’ve found
A better way to satisfy your kind

(Soundtrack of our lives – Believe I´ve found)

Colonia

18. November 2016

Muss jetzt doch mal ein paar Worte über die neue Stadt und ihre Menschen aufschreiben.

Köln ist für mich irgendwie faszinierend. Es herrscht ein gewisses Level an Chaos und Gleichgültigkeit, kombiniert mit einer Portion Freundlichkeit und Flexibilität.

In Situationen bei denen man in anderen Regionen Deutschlands eine Tirade an Argumenten hervorbringen muss und sich auf Widerworte einstellt, weil man jemanden mit einem Problem konfrontiert, das meist mit schlechter Laune und negativen Reaktionen bearbeitet wird, macht der Kölner einfach einen Scherz, erledigt die Sache kreativ und unkonventionell und wünscht einem dann noch einen schönen Tag. Das ist krass und angenehm. Die gute Laune überrascht mich jedes Mal auf´s Neue.

Etwas Altes langsam abstreifen, um offen zu sein für Neues und sich darauf einzulassen, ist kein leichtes Unterfangen und ein tägliches Ringen. Wer aber durchhält wird reich belohnt. Du glaubst, du weißt wie das Leben funktioniert, und plötzlich zeigt es dir, dass es auch ganz anders sein kann. Und du stehst nur da und staunst. Ungläubiges Staunen.

Schön offen bleiben. Erlebnisoffen.

To belong

16. August 2016

Don’t you think you’ll be better off
Without me tied around your neck, it’s like the way your
Body pulls me underneath where I can’t breathe
I’m tired of talking, I’ve been screaming all day

Don’t you think we’ll be better off
Without temptation to regress, to fake tenderness
Waiting to see someone we won’t know for long
In cities we’ll only leave

Don’t you think we’d be better off
Without the pressure to address
A room of faces
Waiting to hear some strange women speak in tongues
On lonely fridays of my loveless drunk, baby
Loveless drunk, baby

I don’t want to belong, I don’t want to belong
I don’t want to belong, to you, to anyone
I don’t want to belong, I don’t want to belong
I don’t want to belong, to you, to anyone
I don’t want to belong, I don’t want to belong

(Daughter – To belong)

Renunciation

11. August 2016

1. „The map is not the territory.“ ~ Alfred Korzybski ~

2. „The real spirit of renunciation is willingness. And willing renunciation comes when one has risen above the thing one renounces.“ ~ Leo Babauta ~

3. „Sincere forgiveness isn’t coloured with expectations that the other person apologise or change. Don’t worry whether or not they finally understand you. Love them and release them. Life feeds back truth to people in its own way and time.“ ~ Sara Paddison ~
