The raven hour

I don’t take a lot of pictures. It’s hard to portray the smell of dead leaves finding its way back into the city’s perfume after many days of the overpowering smell of sunlight. To portray the way the lukewarm breeze hits the trembling muscles of my thighs from such a long stroll by the Isar. […]

Right here, right now

4 in the morning, 4 days in. It feels like the routine is : don’t even try to have a routine, or a three-part-plan, as the most beautiful things that happen to you are always out of accidents. Just give yourself a canvas for the night, the first brushstroke, the rest is a dance between […]

The opening song of my wonderful journey’s soundtrack

I wrote a thing for a Franz Ferdinand fans’ project. I thought I’d share, as it may give some interesting backstory on WHY AM I HERE AND WHY DO I INVEST SO MUCH TIME IN ALL OF THIS. Without more introduction, if you are interested, a little text for you under the cut.

Random musing #672

aka Huge Mishmash of MongkongLove and “Oh no, the blogger is talking about The Blogger once again for fuck’s sake” (Photo credit : FastForwardMonaco) The SMS gigs threw me back into The Rhytm Police, more specifically the Turbo Bells album.

Février, mars, avril, mai

It’s been only four months. It’s highly likely that I’m not able to come back to Munich for another four months. Still, my Facebook feed is dripping of summer shining on Bavaria, and I feel like I’m not completely missing out all the fun. You all post stunning show pictures, backstage glimpses, rehearsal teasers, bar […]

The Big Post of the February 1st Recap

Photo credit : Nana Dix (So this is it, the big post. It was written all day between meetings and travels…) I listen to the pulse of downtown Munich on a Monday morning and realize how silent the city was yesterday. Silent? Only outside. Because if you knew where to look out to, you would […]

Travel Chronicle #4 – Protein Edition

There’s something utterly fascinating about feeling an artist watching you as you listen to their new or unreleased sounds for the first time. This moment when you say something about the track, it’s like taking a plunge into darkness, not knowing how far below the water is. Are you catching the essence on the first […]

Travel Chronicle #3 – KSWP Edition

You know what’s nice? That’s nice. I’m beginning to think there’s a masterplan at work to seduce me into staying in this city forever. We tried to find our way to the rehearsal room (yeah, the indications were totally needed), and found this steep set of metal stairs down what seemed like a redesigned sewer […]
