It’s Sunday again and we aaaall go to the best flea market in town, the Mauerpark-Flohmarkt!
Tourists, real Berliners, aliens, art, shit, kitsch, cooool old stuff, fancy clothes, warm Wintermützen, best international food, crispy Bratwurst, speedy coffee all mingles. Just today I want to hug and kiss my city.
See a smile coming up —> mauerparksmile.mov
Like so many beautiful times before my little family (today: brother, nephew, friend) and me went out in the woods, in the Brandenburg Ex-GDR, into the golden October fluffy air, exploring another geocaching site.
The Teupitz hospital. A lunatic asylum. With a long history: A psychiatry hospital, a city in a bubble, built 100 years ago and over the years serving as military hospital in the first WW and during Nazi time connected to their euthanasia murder program killing thousands of mentally and physically disabled patients
From 1945 Russian military hospital.
Now ghost town!
strolling around, exploring buildings, caves, a silent place, a lost place, finding relicts like Russian newspapers, mineral water bottles from the Georgian Republic, dossiers, hand written records, a theater with a rotten stage, a disco with wacky painted wallpapers ROCK IN ROCK I mean why the hell do communists paint capitalistic disco symbols like ROCK and NY SKYLINE and DISCO and SNEAKERS onto their little club wall
many miracles and horror breezes mingle and still linger. October sun came rushing in, beaming us into a calmly breathing eyes-wide-open mood.

Lately I walked along a street, a cemetery, high walls, old bricks
and I realized someone has vomited on a high kind of platform brick, eye height
no, rather forehead height
Did he / she jump in the second when it
Life is full of miracles and riddles!
And beautiful uncleaned windows like mine:
There’s a new fascinating hidden place in Kreuzberg (Ex PLUS Supermarket!) called Eckstück which is a Pizzeria upstairs and a concert cave downstairs.
Tonight: Rubber Hair, a weird young crazy fresh skilled band that at first sound glimpse you think: Eighties! Then: What a voice! Then: Interesting combination. Then: each of them is an instrument master. Then: What a VOICE! Then: good luck for your hopefully bright future! Then: I like you and want to see you again and wear something different again! Then: Thank you angels that I live in Berlin and not in Wanne-Eickel! Then: Welcome new band member attracting bunches of skinny (< – female) Russian people! Male Russians are less skinny. Then: The white wine was good and why does that guy look like Napoleon? Then: Swing on Carolin. Then: Summer comes surely back.
Here’s a small film clip (better link to better quality coming soon) >>> rubberhair1111.MOV
„Only for the blind“ is what the sign on the traffic light says. But they can’t see it. Only the seeers see it, but it’s not for them! Cool! Cross situation! Absurd creativity! That’s what I love!
I found it in Osnabrück, I was there last weekend at one of the nicest film festivals, the Independent Film Festival. I stayed in a lovely small hotel and there I found another trick: a miracle mirror, a slim-maker! I swear, it’s very subtle, it makes you more beautiful, just a tiny bit, enough to make you feel better and leave a higher tip for the room-ladies 😉
And now is now, the world bursts into colours and hundreds of crystal rain drops gather on my trees, hang there in soft swinging rows, twinkle and make me smile!!
A weird sign. I found it attached on a plain wall of a plain house. Meaning something like fat precipitator. Grease refiner. Is there a door behind and if you find it and open it, fat comes swelling out? Can vans park there and pump in their collected fat from plastic surgeon practices?
