My mother dislikes it. Not yet finished with the first, already starting he next one. My mother meant bottles of juice. It is the same thing with projects. [13terShop] is still in the making - january 2007 is exclusively reserved for working on it - and I squeeze in a new thing... But I really need to do that now: I want to talk to people that show a German flag in public. Forgotten flags from the soccer world cup? Statements of German patriotism? - Who knows - I want to find out. Together with a friend I travel all over Germany for this new Korsakow-film. If you know places in Germany where people show their (German) flag: Please let me know.

It seems all New Yorkers moved to Berlin. Berlin got crowded, English language everywhere. Berlin party mouse #1 Jim Avignon takes advantage of the now vast and empty spaces in New York City and celebrates there as he used to do it in Berlin in the good old days. Art + Music + Party. Berlin is back in town.

On the way to see mayor Bloomberg...

Sep, 4, 2006
Actually I am in New York to work on the LoveStoryProject. Tonight we were on our way to a reception with mayor Michael Bloomberg. But we were running late as something went wrong with the subway. I think there were raindrops falling on the trails or something... Anyway, the reception was cool. There was lots of free beer and nice food. The subway-ride was interresting, too...

Korsakow-Workshop@Synch Festival

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 July 2006

Before and during the upcoming Synch Festival, Athens will be swarming with audiovisual thrill seekers. The perfect event for progressive media makers to get involved with their audience in exciting new ways...

Oh my god. I booked the return tickets to Germany for all the five trainer-assistents and me on the day and time of the final of the soccer world cup. If Germany makes it to the final I am a dead man.

Germany lost against Italy. I am saved.


Our flight is delayed. We sit at the Athens airport at McDonalds and watch Italy vs France. The game ends on a draw after extra time. During the penalty kicks Leipzig student Lennart Sakowski and me get stuck in the security check. Gregor Guth, an other student from Leipzig, watches the penalty kicks. Italy wins. Gregor has tears in his eyes.

Spontaneous presentation at LLoyd Hotel

Sebastian Bodirsky ran into the Culturele Ambessade at the cool LLoyd Hotel in Amsterdam. Together we do an one-hour-multimedia-show for food and beer.
