MILK

I was watching “Milk” with Sean Penn and Emile Hirsch last night when this typographic series of Harvey Milk’s election campaign suddenly showed up.

If you are getting bored in the hospital’s waiting room you can do exciting things like turning your number upside down and wondering what that little arrow looks like.

THE FOX HUNTING CONTINUES
DIE FUCHSJAGD GEHT WEITER

Samstag, Januar 23rd, 2010

I think I should domesticate a fox, take him to a photo studio and do some real portrait close-ups. Damn phone camera. Well, slightly more successful than last time.

GOOD NIGHT, HACKNEY EMPIRE
LAST COURSE: ALADDIN AND HIP HOP

Dienstag, Januar 19th, 2010

Tragic loss, but no news: Hackney Empire will draw its curtain due to financial difficulties this spring. Nicole and I had the chance to attend the pantomime “Aladdin” and a talent show in that impressive venue within one week. Do not do the same horrible mistake to confuse mime artist and pantomime (see wikipedia), you’ll be served the complete opposite of a German “Pantomime”.

The “Borough Shield” contest turned out to be a hip hop and r’n'b driven Hackney variation of X-Factor (DSDS) that called youngsters from various London boroughs to give their best performance. The most thrilling moment was definitely watching the policemen at the entrance supported by security and metal detectors. Later on during the show, wisdom has been spread amongst the viewers. Flyers informed you about the consequences of knife and gun crime:

“You get five years for carrying a gun and one year for every bullet in the gun.” Anyways, all in all we saw great synchronised dancing, listened to mediocre singing and sat in an impressive atmosphere thanks to the glorious architecture and the crazy audience.

SIZE DOES MATTER
GANGSTA DIARIES

Dienstag, Januar 12th, 2010

A Hackney fairy tale:

Two guys leaning against a car. A good looking, filthy rich graphic designer walks home from work through the park and passes that car. All of a sudden one guy wants to play and blocks the path of that young, successful and aspiring lad.

Standing now face to face the guy realises the difference in size only now and says: “Fuck man, you are taller than me! Where have you been?” The wiser lad does not reply but tries to keep this special moment in a scribble later on.

I can’t believe I have missed the “Day of the Shoe” and this blog’s 2nd birthday end of last year. 15 Oct 2009 to be exact. Everyone who needs to know more about that glorious day should read the 2008 introduction.
