performed live in Berlin.



DJ Abacus
found a post I wrote in a reasonstation forum.

They all have their mySpace presence, of course!

Listen in, folks!

mittagszwielicht eins zwei eins elf

(für J.W. Goethe)

ursache und wirkung? außen und innen?
das durchrühren des froop[1] um 13 uhr
wobei ich in der ZEIT lese
daß dein FAUST zweihundert wird
der stoff aber viel älter sei

aus einem blauen himmel draußen
schneit es drei minuten lang
„ohnmächtige Schauer körnigen Eises“
da drängelt doch der april
eine woche vor, der freche

ein zeichen von oben? woran er nicht glaubte
zumal jetzt die feuerkugel hervorlugt
schillernde dachziegel trocknet
„die Sonne duldet kein Weißes“ auf fleckigen fenstern
und schwupps: bauschen winde wolken auf

ich hab einen schatten
sitze krumm
stütze mich auf die faust in der achselhöhle
der kühlschrank brummt gleichmütig hinter mir
ich vergesse die gretchenfrage

auf vier uhren umticken mich sekunden im quadrat
in ihrem bann werd ich schneller altern
oder geist erlangen
komm schon, schnitter
komm und nimm die wünsche fort!

Women unplugged

Although these girls used amps and electricity in their concert this Easter Sunday (so the title unplugged might be misleading), they played solo at a Kreuzberg club called Arcanoa. Their band members had to watch from the densely packed bar.

K.C. McKanzie, Kitty Solaris, and Jeanette Hubert really performed well that night.

They belong to my Myspace friends, so I might find out about coming concerts and releases.
K.C. played some of her new songs from the 3rd album "Hammer and Nails", which bought right away. Her music keeps me company, when I travel near and far.

Sadly for me, she already has a boyfriend. Not a surprise, though!


I just remembered that I heard a very nice concert last wednesday as well together with a girl I had met that same afternoon. Bernhard Eder, who let me use his music for soundtracks twice already, teamed up with MissinCat. Bernhard's music is becoming more powerful, which makes me look forward impatiently to his new album which will be released this fall. Some of his songs contain the violin played by his girlfriend. This time I bought socks that match the colors of his current album "The Livingroom Sessions". Funny merchandize.

Openness — A Life’s List?

More autobiographical lore of Dave

The dense forests of Småland in Sweden or the barren Alvar on the Swedish island Öland impressed me. I saw a sad toothless dancing bear being dragged on a nose-ring along a beach in Bulgaria when I was six. The mountains of the High Tatra in Slovakia left a lasting impression as did the clear-view diving grounds of Zakynthos in Greece with their octopi. Still in my prime I lingered under palm trees in the harbor of Lagos in Portugal. I have visited my share of Europe for sure. High waves crashed upon surfers on a beach of the Atlantic Ocean near Bordeaux. I was chased by an actor in an original Alien costume in a London venue called Alien War. When a ferry to Sweden hit a heavy storm front I nearly got sick. We dipped into the traffic jams of Rome and smelled the summer-stink of Venice. We drove through Alpine tunnels and refused to eat stockfish in North-Norway. I drank Schweppes as a child in a Hungarian spa near Püspökladány and tasted extremely hot peppers in Romania. In the shallow water of a stony beach in Sardinia I stepped upon a sea urchin. Uhh, that hurt!

What was fantastic about my life? Survival of the non-fittest. Loving and being loved by beautiful girls and enjoying their bodies while studying their minds. Inspiring conversations with mentors, parents, lovers helped me as did those with friends, benefactors, students, enemies, and fans.

Creating inner worlds with literature of all kinds to evolve gleaming mind spaces was highly enjoyable. To have a nervous system and sense the world. To say the thing that is not in many languages. To see beyond beauty and celebrate complexity. To assemble samples into music and clips into narrative films. To be baffled and surprised by diversity. To have opinions and false beliefs. Furthermore I liked to collaborate in writing, to dance and hike and dive and fly. To have doubts and to be relieved, to worry and to win games. To be able to stand judgment and to judge. To applaud and be astonished. To convince and to change my conviction. To cook and taste and digest food and to bathe. To have a conscious and self-esteem. To caress and to be kissed. To benefit from the hospitality of strangers. To learn and to forget. What was I saying?

I am not so sure if I intend to regularly post blogs here.

Who would read my personal life? Would I even want to share a diary?

Come here from time to time to see if I have some news or announcements regarding the following (in German, English, or Swedish):

0. Castings for my films or anything related to my current or past productions.

1. KinoKabaret (for actresses, filmmakers, authors)

2. my poety (published)

3. my life

Take care and thank you for not smoking.
