I caught an article in the local German newspaper reminding me to go have a listen. I haven’t been listening much to music nor to anyone else the last few years. The whining of hipster music can sometimes be unbearable and you wish for straight Beat out of 60th London (I keep thinking it’s the only cure).

When by yourself, Bright Eyes can be good companions and of similar influence as this guy who stabbed himself with a pair of scissors.

Nostalgia and Euro memorabilia

Not long ago and the general impression of European streets was marked by anything small and agile. Small cars, strange cargo vehicles, motor scooters, engine noise, and plenty of honking. Famous hollywood pictures helped build the image of small, tight, and agile. Desirable values by today’s start-ups.





Subculture & fashions

Pictures from Brixton with countless mods on scooters along the waterfront. The movement carried or were carried by their own music. That of The Who, and in a second wave by The Jam,

Trump-Clinton debate
Disenchantment with politics has been around since the early days of post ancient greek democracy. Before Bernie Sanders, the country missed out on an informed President who, much like Sanders, had his share in the daily lives of regular citizens.

    It's his third!





    For most of the year Callum’s house elsewhere in Oregon is peaceful and quiet, not so around this time though, when a dispute over age and readiness unfolds among members and friends of the Currier family.
