In love with Freestyle Magazine


some days ago i found the Freestyle Magazine.

it´s about art, design, photography, achitecture, music and lifestyle. it´s round in shape so that it fits in a frisbee-disc.
AND each issue will be released with a frisbee designed by famous artists oder designers.
the first issue comes with the Eley Kishimoto “Mold 10” Wham-O sports disc (whatever this means)!





















i ordered one and will not sleep anymore till it has arrived safely.

and here a little commercial...

shredded shirts

I've been working on mine for a week now. I'll probably be finished when the trend is oooover.

If you think that H&M is much too cheap for you...

... then there's an alternative you might wanna try. COS is a partner of H&M established in 2007, following a very different fashion style and concept than you used to know from H&M.
If you have a chance to check out stores in Germany, Great Britain, Denmark, France, Netherlands and Spain.. do it!
I have to admit that some of the stuff is too.. let's say 'grown up' for me.. but I like some of the autumn and winter campaign items:




what to bring if you visit friends overseas

If you got a friend overseas and you're about to visit him you might know that kind of conversation:

"yeah, you gotta bring me some chocolate when you come visit."
"ok, what kind do you want? Milka, Lindt or Ritter Sport?"
" I don't care, just bring me the good stuff."

:)

So I'll be hunting for Schokolade next week, looking for stuff like this:

closing time

it is sunday. closing time for the week behind.
i had some good experiences and some that were not that nice.
but i will work on it. and perhaps work on me as well.
the best thing i did this week was to decide to quit my jobs which fucked me up.




see you next week.

feed the need on flea markets

one of my favorite skate-videos is the osiris 'feed the need'. not only that the skateboarding is nice to look at... ;) ...i also love the soundtrack.
but i lost it somewhere in my boxes at the last removal and finally found it some days ago.
here is the james brockman-part:



yesterday i was at the flea market and bought a pullover. i was not sure about it but i decided that this one can stay:

my skateboarding skills were less than nothing. and they are not that much better after this week. but it was so much fun!
you have to keep in mind that i´m 29 years old, perhaps looking little like a young gazelle...NOT.

now i can also say, that i have a deathwish. this one:


and yes: i promised myself to do more sports.

My heart is beating like a jungle drum

Since the final episode of Germany's Next Top Model this song is stucked in my head.


And by the way.. is there any punishment for liking this song too?

new mag found

i found a new mag i like! actually it is not really new, i just didn´t recognise it earlier.

COOLER surf, snow, street & style


it presents a wonderful mix of skateboarding news, surfing or snowboarding from all over the world, also fashion trends and d.i.y.-instructions for gardening or messenger-bags.

our wonderful little city

no one i know likes bielefeld.
it is too small for all the big egos living in it.
it is too small for having fun without getting recognised.
it is too rainy here, too cold.
it is too boring.
it is too ... (fill in all you like)

but there also must be some nice and worthful living places here. and i hope to find them.
i´m giong to start with this picture. i like this place. do you know where this is?

unrecognised genius i am

when you have some kind of passion for fashion, it is not that easy from time to time. especially when you got a sense for trends. you always score by getting the laughs.
here some examples:
two years ago i visited a friend of mine in birmingham. i came back and predicted a market-
overflow of these "pali-shawls". my dearest friends were laughing. but a few months later the flood began.


last year i bought my "arabella harem trousers". my dearest friends were laughing...ok, most of them. and now?? everybody got one. you can buy them everywhere!


And months ago i despairingly searched some kind of a mesh vest and found some by american apparel. now you can buy them at h&m.

so please, please do not laugh at me any more.
just listen and learn!!!!

uuuhh...i did it again...

oh fuck. yersterday i bought it.
i was, no i AM in love. but...fuck!!!
you know that? a jacket, shoes, trousers...you see it, you love it, it´s a must have. regardless of which price!!
now i´m sick.
my love is a short cut leather jacket. perfect for all my skate-shop-t-shirts, because they get some kind of elegant note with it. you can wear it with baggy or skinny jeans, tops, shirts.
but the price!!!
last night i sorted out my wardrobe and selected all the stuff i could sell to balance out this financial disaster.

dove and the real truth about beauty

perhaps you remind the first posters of a dove campaign of some lotion with "real" women on advertising columns?

some time ago i found the link to the dove real beauty-campaign . on this homepage you can inform yourself about the practices of the beauty industry and the negative impacts on society.
mainly adressed are young girls who are most influenced by advertising of the beauty industry or other stuff in the media.

if you like check it out. among the serious messages there are lots of fun stuff as well.

here are two films of the campaign i like:

i´m in love with lagerfeld

i´m not a real good friend of mr. lagerfeld. but this bag ist awesome!!
there could be any other person on this bag, it would be wonderful.
but in his case his narcistic personality comes to the point.

today im going to start a new research-project...strictly academic of course!
it´s about the definition of beauty in women´s magazines in germany. so get ready for other wonderful informations and pictures like this one above.

Wanna meet my friends?

Maybe you noticed, that I added 2 webpages/blogs to our linklist. And maybe you wonder now who those people are.
So here's a little introduction:

Kevin Berger is a very talented tattoo artist from Duisburg, who is currently working at Blue Harvest Tattoo/Bielefeld, the shop I always get tattooed at.
You already saw some of his work, cause he did the wolf I posted here. So if you wanna get some work done on your skin maybe you wanna take a look at his stuff... just klick on the link kevinbergertattoo or visit http://www.myspace.com/blueharvesttattoo

The next person I want you to meet is a very dear friend of mine. Her name is Franzi, she's a very talented hairstylist, who was working for Wella for 3 years in Hamburg and now returned to her Hometown, which is kinda great cause she can take care of my hair again;)
Plus she's also doing photography now and is writing a blog about fashion, hairstyles, music. Check out her page frina.somethingnice.

Ok, I'm out of here. Enjoying spring weather and stuff...

Just in case you haven't heard

Our favourite Räpper Casper just signed to Selfmade records, dropped a single with Kollegah and Favourite and has MTV rotation now.

If you wanna know what I think about it: His part is cool.. the rest kinda sucks.. sorry. But I've never been into Kollegah and just the whole Selfmade thing. And you can keep on telling me those guys have a great technique if it comes to Räp.. I don't care, it just sounds stupid to me.
Plus: everytime I watch a German Räp Video it always reminds me of my ex boyfriend from the US, when he was watching that Sido Video "Mein Block" years ago and was asking "Is he being serious?"
Deutsch-Räp, mein liebstes Sorgenkind.

My room is a mess

and I can't get dressed. And I won't clean until studying time is over. Till then call me messy Sasse.

Of mice and men

I've always wondered how people can be afraid of mice, cause these little creatures are propably the cutest animals ever. I haven't seen one in a long time, but when the girls and I went out for pizza in the city today there was one always running up and down outside of the window, looking for a little space it could fit through. But this little thing just didn't want to accept the fact that it just won't fit through.

White lies

This song is killing me cause it's so good.
White Lies - Farewell To The Fairground

laallaaaa..dada..duuudduddbb....never ever again tuna pizza....

Read, write , watch Pt. VII... I think

Ok yesterday night after 3 hours of reading and studying (it was all about nerdy MUD stuff and in the end I kinda felt like a nerd too), I decided to watch that movie "What we do is secret". It's a biography of L.A.'s famous Punk band The Germs.
It turned out it's a good movie, nothing special, but you should definitly watch it.



P.S.: Girls keep an eye on that boy who's playing Darby's boyfiend/soulmate/friend/whatever.. he's kinda cute.

P.P.S: Kids, please stay away from heroin.

P.P.P.S.: I still don't know what to think about that Fan movie. Gotta watch it again. All I know is: It's kinda funny knowing Franka Potente is overdubbing her own voice in German.

In loving memory

Do you know that kind of feeling when you start to listen to music that you haven't been listening to in years and you are reminded of the time which you were going through, relationships, friendships... things like that.
A friend of mine sent me the complete discography of Taking Back Sunday today cause I don't have the albums anymore. And out of nowhere I was so pushed back in time. Time when I was like 20 years old, I was totally in love with one guy and a few months later I was totally heartbroken. Whatever.. it's a weird feeling listening to these songs again and feeling like I'm getting old, losing naivety, seeing things so much different than I would have 7 years ago. I guess that means I'm growing up. God I just wish I could be 20 again for just one day...

strezzzzzz.....

all the people living in a flatshare might know this: there can be lots of stress.
at the moment in our flat we got more than that.
the topics are burglary, moving out, reciminations and stuff like that.
so what can you do about that?
i tried appreciation...didn´t work.
i tried cursing...didn´t work.
i tried ignoring...didn´t work.
i LIKE to try a contract killer...that will do...but...

the only good thing about this situation is that i can not stand to be at home the most time of the day. so i´m at university working and studying.
AND i´m far away from the kitchen...my red skinny jeans fits again...yeah!!!

and for my next flatshare i like to have this fridge:

Read, write watch Pt. ... whatever

OK tonight it's going to be "The fan". I just bought it at the grocery store for 5 bucks. I first thought it would be that movie with Robert de Niro, but it's not. Well, I don't care, cause Giovanni Ribisi and Franka Potente are starring in this one so it'll better be good. I'll let you know.

Saturday night...

... and all I'm doing is drinking my Corona and try to study. Nice. What happened to my life? What happened to meeting people, what happened to hang ot with fiends, what happened to see my family? I don't know. All I know is that my weekends are all about going to work, getting lost in literature and then going to bed. I need this phase in my life to be over already.

Dienstag, 17. März 2009

imagine...

what would you do...
...if you got all the money you need?
...if you got just one day left to live?
...if you got the opportunity to confess your love to someone special?

these thoughts are about opportunities you have and the ones you get everyday.
i´m that kind of person who let oppotunities pass. and i like to change that. i have to.

so...with all the money i need? with just one day left to live? what would i do?

what would YOU do?

i´m going to make a list in the next days.

fellviecher

sometimes i´m in need of cuddleing (as everybody, i suppose)...
so i tried during the last days to find a cuddly toy for me. and NO this is no article about boyfriends and sex.
i remember my favorite cuddly toy during my childhood. i had a donkey named 'emil'.
he was always on my site, when i was ill or when i was in trouble with friends or parents.
our relationship ended as a friend of mine borrowed it and burned it on the heating.
since then i never had a cuddley toy again.
finally i found a new one:

it´s a hammerhead shark. and his name is 'vince'.
vince has got some cute friends:
these are works of art of fellviecher. you can also buy cows, snails, ants, cockroaches, tapires, squirrels, skunks and many more.
further more you can order an animal you want and define colour and material.
so help yourself on thier homepage...it´s cuddle-time.

Räp?

I'm usually not that much into German Räp, but this guy totally changed my mind.
Just saw him a few weeks ago in Hannover.. twas quite convincing.
And if anybody knows where I can get those crazy green light glases he was wearing on stage.. lemme know.



Bird flu.. I haz it.

So last week was seriously the worst time ever in my whole life. I was dying, and with saying dying I totally mean dying.
It all started on Saturday while I was sitting in front of my computer talking bullshit with Mr. Griffey via icq and making plans about the German Trash Punk Band we wanna form. And out of nowhere I just felt like dying. So I just called in sick at work on Tuesday, spent my days in bed and died a little bit each minute. Seriously if I get sick I'm nothing but a sniveling bitch. I'm even worse than boys when they get sick.. I admit it.
Plus I need extra attention during that time. So I usually call my Mom, tell her I'm about to die which totally freaks her out and always ends with her asking "Do you wanna come here? I'll take care of you." But this time it was totally impossible to leave the house. Whatever. I'm better now and I promise to blog more, just like Sandra I guess.
By the way: studying time started again 2 days ago, so be prepared to read more about "read, write, watch".
And since I can go out again, I'll prolly see you there tomorrow.

arised form the dead / sneaker stories

short time after my posting about this "hello kitty"-hospital, german kleinigkeit and me felt ill. you have to know we share lots of things, like the love to tattoos, shoes and clothing, hair styling, job related perspectives and in the last days also our diseases. and this wasn´t nice, i can tell you.
do you know how it feels like when you nearly choke on your spittle (and other substances deep in your throat) while coughing? or to freeze on the toilet because the seat seems to be cold as ice and hurts as hell?
we are nearly through it...
so look forward to news and crap in the next days.

and while your´re wainting take a look at this movie:


sneaker stories follows street basketball players in Brooklyn, Vienna and Ghana through one hot summer, and reveals how their love of style, shoes and the game itself resonates within an international cycle of control and commodification.

hello kitty hospital in taiwan


a "hello kitty" themed hospital has opened it´s doors in taiwan last year. The aim of it is to ease the stress of childbirth with images of this cartoon character.

rom blankets and birth certificates to cots and uniforms worn by staff, every aspect of the hello kitty hospital is emblazoned with the little cat.

patients are welcomed by a statue of hello kitty dressed in a doctor's uniform, before travelling in a hello kitty elevator to a pink examination room with hello kitty posters on the wall.


to ease childbirth...hä???
no one can imagine what can happen to a little new-born mind when the first thing on earth you see is a "hello kitty" nurse taking you away from your mother after cutting the umbilical cord.
what about longterm studies on this? were they made?

muzak, not music

So I had a little conversation with a certain someone lately about music and how your taste of music might change at a certain age (I mean my taste did change a lot). He's alot into Hardcore and stuff still and I almost forgot that I just listened to that stuff years ago. I'm always wondering about how much your interest in music can change just in a few years. Why is that? Is it a part of growing up, is it a part how you were socialized or is it because you just gave up on something you believed in (which is maybe a part of growing up).
When I think back to all the different kinds of music I used to listen to, there is only one constant in my life and that is probably the music my Dad showed me. Just like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Ac/Dc and stuff. Since then I went from Rock to HipHop to Punk to Hardcore and back.
And thinking about Hardcore I had to realize that I don't feel connected to this music anymore really. But if I go back in time I have to say that the time when I used to listen to it was maybe the best time of my life. The shows, the people, the atmosphere.. everything. That was when I was 19-24 or something. I was full of idealism, full of ideas and stuff... and now it's just not like that anymore. So what happened? Shows have changed, people have changed, ideas have changed and I'm not feeling it anymore. But still there's a lot of appreciation I have for some Bands.











my life is so slooooow

but still I feel like I have to rave against Germany

i just thought "uiuiui"

everybody got some little secrets.
one of mine is that i ´m owner of all the osbournes-seasons.
when i entrust someone with this i get the "oh fuck, really...ok...it´s you"-look.

2003 i saw a kelly osbourne-show in hannover as a support act for robbie williams. weird, isn´t it? the show was horrible, of course. but i can´t deny that i like this girl, in some queer way.

i found this on youtube and i´m not sure if i like it or not.

Acid Tongue

So Jenny Lewis dropped a new record. It's called Acid Tongue and I'm already in love with it.
"To be lonely is a habit like smoking or taking drugs
And I've quit them both but man was it rough."
Yeah, story of my life.

Thanks Jenny.

three things i learned this week

FIRST: things aren´t what they used to be.

on thursday dover had a show in our wonderful little city.
i liked them very much...till then. what the fuck happend with this band???
electonic influences on the new album, exhausted-looking band-menbers...
i stood there, was shocked, listend to three songs and fled...out of the concert directly into my memory of the wonderful past of dover.

old:



new:




SECOND: pop-up books should come back.

on friday the exhibition of the final year projects of the design-college bielefeld opend.
projects of fashion, media design, photography and many more we could gaze at.
one of the students made a pop-up-calendar. this work was so amazing and brilliant and i remembered a book i saw several months ago: the star wars pop-up-guide to the galaxy.
this book is the best i´ve ever seen.


THIRD: my handy is a nonswimmer

...especially in sparkling wine. so don´t try to call me, please.
