Words of wisdom about last night: don’t wear white shoes after 6 Guinness. A bagel shape is no appropriate container for loads of salad and mexican chicken. Finding an ipod and returning it to the bar staff makes me a 5 star trustworthy citizen. All the best, Nick, in case you read that.

BYE FESTIVE SEASON
BYE GERMANY

Freitag, Januar 7th, 2011

One reason to move back: the Ritter Sport chocolate range, great design, great taste. Love them!

Another reason to move back: Schnitzel! Please note that massive meat beast continues underneath the chips. So tasty but just too much! Before I enjoyed “Spätzle mit Soß” with Big Do so my stomach’s capacity has already been tortured before the real feast began.

Timber: The head of my friends’ dog remotely reminded me of my bike saddle.

My greatest phone cam shot of our NYE in Würzburg. That little church (”Käppele”) up there was built in a stunning Baroque style.

Back home in London: recycling the Christmas tree…

…not without consequences.

Dilemma: I finally got my winter jacket back on, so forget about any official onset of winter according to the calendar or meteorology. As soon as I take out my winter jacket the cold season of the year has officially started. Problem is that I wore it too early this year and I was sweating like a buffalo on the bike.

First part of the photos. Part 2 will follow in a bit. I could not help to take loads and loads of photos of typography just like last year. Need to put them all together, sort them out and post them here soon. Meanwhile enjoy the non-typographic photos =)

RAUF UND RUNTER
HITHER GREEN – LONDON FIELDS – HITHER GREEN

Samstag, Juni 19th, 2010

Den Satz “ich müsst mal wieder laufen gehen” hatte er durch seine häufige Verwendung, aber nicht Umsetzung, ins Lächerliche gezogen. 4 1/2 Jahre Studium und 2 Jahre Arbeit fordern ihren Tribut. Waschbär und Rollmops haben es sich schon bequem gemacht. Und dann kam es, das Radl! Und fortan radelte er.

Und nun muss ich ne Pause einlegen, weil die Beinchen doch ziemlich arg ziehen und der Muskelkater täglich mitradelte. Ein paar Worte zum täglichen Weg zur Arbeit: die Zeit schwankt bei 40 bis 50 min. Morgens gönne ich mir meist das Boot, um die Themse zu überqueren, abends dann die neue East London Line. Ab und an radel ich den kompletten Weg. Abends bin ich aber meist zu platt.

Und etwas für die Glotzis gibt es auf dem Weg auch wie z.B. die Cutty Sark (wird gerade restauriert), den Greenwich Foot Tunnel/die Themse, die Hochhäuser in Canary Wharf und auch Victoria Park. Und in die Glotzis gibt es auch was – der Straßenstaub und die Abgase sind mitunter doch recht nervig und der Gegenwind ist vor allem nahe der Themse sehr kräftezehrend.

STEP ON HIM
BEFORE HE STEPS ON YOU

Sonntag, Mai 9th, 2010

Die Wahl in GB ist vorbei. Die Entscheidung steht noch nicht fest in welcher Konstellation künftig auf der Insel regiert wird. Fakt ist, dass die jetzige Regierung bald passé sein wird. Scheint als würde der neue Regierungschef jener sein, dem man kurz vor der Wahl noch an der Station in Hither Green übers Gesicht laufen konnte. Die Propaganda hat (leider) nichts genutzt.

TRAPPED IN BANBURY
HOPE WE GET THE LAST TRAIN BACK TO CIVILISATION

Dienstag, März 23rd, 2010

9.11 pm (help!) and still trapped in Banbury at the printer. We need to pass 2 more sections on the press then we’re off to London. So far everything is looking good, the smashed copper shade cover came back today with a sexy spot UV varnish (photo below before matt lamination and varnish finish). The other photo shows Holger at 7am or so fairly impressed by the mountains of Tom Dixon catalogue sheets (about 22 tons all together!).

update 1.30am home, finished, more than content. good night. Might post some photos here in a bit, meanwhile click the 2009 catalogue.

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.

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.

KILL FRAU HOLLE
22. TÜRCHEN

Dienstag, Dezember 22nd, 2009

Snow is great, everyone loves snow. This includes me, I am also a “snow lover”. So, since I am such a big snow lover I did not mind to make an exciting trip to Gatwick Airport and back to Hackney since Frau Holle (Mother Hulda) likes to torture travellers by freezing runways, planes and railways.

COLOGNE CHRISTMAS MARKET
21. TÜRCHEN

Montag, Dezember 21st, 2009

As announced we have finally made it for some Glühwein und Bratwurst to the Christmas Market along the Thames (Waterloo) named after Cologne which made me expect thousands of people and stalls. But it was actually tiny, probably even less stalls than my small Swabian home town Aalen has to offer. Anyways, I have spotted something big at last: one mighty Wurst to rule them all!

OXFORD STREET…NOT!
20. TÜRCHEN

Sonntag, Dezember 20th, 2009

I have successfully avoided Oxford Street/Picadilly Circus this year for Christmas shopping. Thank you www. Instead we had some really tasty Indian food (Clipper!) on Bricklane, less busy less Christmassy. Thanks to two chili peppers I swallowed at once I had a very stubborn company all evening called hiccup.

HACKNEY BEFORE CHRISTMAS
18. TÜRCHEN

Freitag, Dezember 18th, 2009

Basically there are 4 ways how to kill the time till Christmas in Hackney:

1 – gamble outside Eddy’s Cafe
2 – light a fire in cars
3 – watching undelivered Season’s Greetings piling up
4 – taking blurry photos of the very first snow this winter

FESTIVE HACKNEY
6. TÜRCHEN

Sonntag, Dezember 6th, 2009

Christmas is coming closer and closer, also here in Hackney. Witnessed by the light installation along Broadway Market and Mare Street, a huge reindeer projection and the friendly smiling ceiling decoration in the great Turkish restaurant next door.
