Schwarz zu Blau

Guten Morgen Berlin, Du kannst so haesslich sein, so dreckig, so grau
Du kannst so schoen schrecklich sein, Deine Naechte fressen mich auf
Es wird fuer mich wohl das beste sein, ich geh nach Hause und schlaf mich aus
Und waehrend ich durch die Strassen laufe, wird langsam schwarz zu blau
Ich bin kaputt und reib mir aus, meinen Augen, Deinen Staub
Du bist nicht schoen, und das weisst Du auch – Dein Panorama versaut
Du siehst nicht mal schoen von weitem aus, doch die Sonne geht gerade auf
Und ich weiss ob ich will oder nicht, dass ich Dich zum Atmen brauch’

Die neue Berlin-Hymne von Peter Fox? Auf jeden Fall ein schickes Album.

Loft oder Liebe


No sleep all weekend?

The other day I noticed that in almost three months it hasn’t gotten any better around Ostkreuz. In fact, I think it’s gotten only worse. There are more constructions, more blocked roads, it’s louder and I it sure as hell doesn’t look like it’s over any time soon.

Now, it sounds like people living around the Ostkreuz construction site get super lucky the following weekend. I got a nice flyer yesterday, which told me that there is gonna be all day and all night construction work. They probably would not announce that if it wouldn’t mean “loud”.

Some people living here, were lucky to score a Ersatzschlafraum (which is probably a hotel), for the rest – it’s over on Sunday by 6 AM. Until then, go out and party. Or something. Can’t? Sucks to be you!


O2 Arena

While I believe Berlin has too many arenas already, we got another one. Some time this summer the O2 Arena was opened and I drove by the other night and took two pretty horrible shots of the fireworks they started down there. No idea why, and I honestly didn’t bother to research it. So here they are – my two horrible pictures shot with my phone’s camera.

Come Blog With Us

moar.gifWriting for Metblogs has the potential to be the most rewarding experience in your entire life. It’ll make you rich, famous, good looking, will help you lose weight, make your clothes fit better, and get you a super good deal on a new car. It will make you the most well known person on the entire planet. Yes, each and every one of you. Really.

OK maybe not. Actually those are all lies, but it’s fun at least. The truth is Metblogs is the largest network of locally focused blogs on the web, covering almost 60 cities around the world and we’re looking to add a few new bloggers/writters/authors to this fine site. If you wanna know more about us check out this wikipedia entry but it’s kinda boring so I won’t waste time repeating it all here again. If you wanna write for us, here’s the scoop:

  • All author positions are volunteer. That means you don’t get paid.
  • You must live in (or very near) the city you plan to write about.
  • Anything you post must relate to the city somehow. That means you shouldn’t post a movie review, but talking about going to see a movie at a local theater is fine.
  • There’s no requirement for how much you can or should write, but we ask that if we set you up as an author you make about 3 posts a week.
  • You can post about things you love, you can post about things you hate. It’s entirely up to you

Additionally, because of our global network, there’s plenty of options for things you write to be read by people all over the world. Interested? Want more details? Post a comment and we’ll be in touch!

Public viewing

I just dropped of some friends at Hauptbahnhof and noticed that Berlin is pretty much dead during the Euro 2008 football games – except for those places who own a TV, of any size. And that’s what public viewing is all about.

To native English speakers the name itself, “public viewing”, may sound strange. In short, it’s about watching events in public places. Most of those places have giant flat screens, but not all of them. Berlin itself offers lots of opportunities to go outside and watch a game. Plenty of bars, in the parks, restaurants and so on.

Interesting also that football is not just a guys thing anymore. Lots of girls on the streets wearing shirts and flags. So this is not gonna be so boring after all. Woo. ;-)

Sunshine! Villalobos! Weekend!

Weekend Roof - M-nus party
If you don’ know what to do today, I suggest you take it minimal and head to the Weekend Roof right now. One of the greatest DJs ever, Ricardo Villalobos, is playing there right now and goes on until nine in the evening. I am not sure how much the entrance fee is, but since the terace is one of the Berlin’s finest and it’s +28c out there, I think it’s worth it in any case. See you there, Berlin!
