I know it was a while now that I left a notice, but I was bussy recording the second LP under my own name, it's called "..about the flowers and the sun" it's fairly melancolic again and it's the first time I added the drums by myself. I'm still editing the last bits, but when I'm finished I'll upload a few songs!
I'm off to sweden, I'll go there with an ol mate and we'll visit the soulnite festival, which is a 60's Funk revival festival, sounds like a groovy weekend.
Also I'm about to book my flight to zealand for the 5th of april, till then I'll work in the home for homeless kids, where I worked 1 year ago, my job is to drive kids to there Therapy, go vacation with them and rebuild things what they wrecked...
There is light at the horizon, even if I leave death letters everywhere!
Did you ever had the feeling you're at the wrong spot at the wrong time? Well I've got this feeling permanent sience the last three weeks. It is even this bad that I can't talk to people I love, the thought adopts my feelings, this is why everything looks like I'm goin down the road to New Zealand and I'm tryin to get a permanent citizenship, if I fit in! Cos this gives me the possabilty to life in Australia as well! Man, I REALLY WANNA FUCKIN DO IT! It all kicked off when one of my best mates called me last week and ask me if I wanna go on a trip New Zealand and I thought hell yeah, this is a sign. I just go, even if I feel bad for a few people round here, but I just can't drown in shit to give people the possabillity to see me twice a year. I think people who never lived in germany just can't imagine what a fuckin shithole it is, you're fuckin mistreated by the bloody goverment, this ponging assholes just riped me off, I had to pay 1100 $ to do a test to check if I'm able to drive a car and I've done fuckin nothin wrong! They just invited me and told me had to bring the money, counted!!! Bastards! I know this sounds rough, but I have to start my life now and to leave this shithole is the way I choose.
I keep you updated when I'll be around the kiwis, till then a song for the folks I leave behind.
"Lord, have mercy on my wicked soul. I wouldn't mistreat you baby, for my weight in gold. I said, Lord, have mercy on my wicked soul. You know I wouldn't mistreat nobody, baby, not for my weight in gold."
...strange days comin up with sunrise oh lord help me going thru them!
Sometimes everything is beautiful, sometimes everything is beautiful but you don't have the eyes to see it, so you just walking around, tellin everyone, how sad your life is. Bullshit! You have to open your eyes and see the good things.
I'm back from my shorttrip and now I can't wait to see MANU CHAO in two days, together with an old mate I didn't see for a year! At the moment I'm preparing the video about my whole OZ trip and video about my home, so you can see where the end of the world is and where I found my place there...
Last nite, I had one of this youtube nights and I found two videos.
This one is from rodrigo y gabriela, a few vistors will know this video, we watched together in the ol farmhouse close to Albany, gettin high Mawl and tones of beers...
The next one is one of the greatest songs ever written, it's from Pink floyd and the song is called Cymbaline, it's just awesome to find stuff like this, cos I never thought that this thing would be online. The song is one of my first music memories, I was listening to it when I was five years old, watching the pink floyd concerts on VHS cassettes from my mum and for this song I learned how to use the "rew" and "stop" button, to watch it again and again and again, ENJOY!
I hope everybody around the world is havin a good day!
