So is he coming, or isn’t he? Kids around the world, well the Christian &/or western world I should say, are wondering if & hoping that St. Nick makes an appearance tonight. Even in northern Germany, the little ones are waiting for the Weihnachtsmann (Christmas man, literally). He purportedly comes early enough on Xmas Eve… Continue reading Stealing from little baby Jesus
What’s going on down in the Allgäu? Place used to be so respectable. I’m sure there’s a perfectly good explanation for this, but until I hear it? I’m assuming this butcher is a front for a sex club. Scharfe Stange? I’m sure there’s more than meets the eye going on here.
In the coming months, I’ll be pimping this blog and sending my astounding levels of traffic toward a couple of the projects I’m working on these days. Some of these projects are new, but most are the latest instalments of continuing collaborations. One of the nearest and dear to me is the one I’ve… Continue reading Old Braunfels…getting the band back together edition
Many European cities are empty for the entire month of August. Well, not empty exactly, because there are still plenty of tourists. Yet the locals are gone. None of this is new, by the way. Parisians are notorious for abandoning the City of Light and make a mass exodus to the Côte d’Azur and… Continue reading August all to ourselves
Here’s what happens when you lie down in the grass when Louis is around. He’s going to stand over you and imply that he’s ready for you to get up and keep going. I bet some of you wish you had this sort of motivation. He’s happy to help you out if you need… Continue reading across fields and dales pulling your wagon and drinking all the way
This blog has been only about refugees lately, and as much as I’m still obsessed with the topic (more on that another time), there’s so much else going on. Other things need to be dealt with. And quickly. For example: people climbing objects in public & standing on said objects. Like in the photo… Continue reading How did the American get on the roof of the toilet?
Before even most locals are awake & certainly the tourists are still dozing, this might be the nicest time of day to be wandering through the streets of Munich. The light is certainly nice for photos, and there’s an expectancy in the air. What might this day in Bavaria’s capital hold in store… Continue reading At the Marienplatz in the wee hours
It’s been mild, we get it. November was rather warm here in Munich, and there hasn’t been much sunlight. It’s a good time to hole up and read. Or write. However, when you’ve got dogs, there’s only so long you can stay inside. I’ve tried to convince the hounds to take themselves out, but they… Continue reading Mild as it’s been, enjoying late autumn
The FilmfestMünchen is thankfully behind us. It’s the only week of the year where we can see a variety of independent film and even some not-yet-released-in-Europe bigger movies; however, the way I do it involves quite a lot of screenings. My eyes may or may not be rectangular, as a result. There are still reviews… Continue reading Unterwegs with plenty I should be doing otherwise
Not sure exactly what’s going on in this window, but apparently Guinness is Good for You. I suppose that’s useful information to know. I thought the gnome holding up those several Krugs of Bavarian beer would be a nice way to mention that the Oktoberfest has begun here. For the uninitiated, that means upward… Continue reading Guinness is apparently good for you…apparently
