September 2021


The week that was.


I really meant to blog sometime this week, but it escaped me – but now that it’s Saturday night, I have time.

Some how I managed to have something important (mostly fun) to do every single day of the week, after 4 o’clock. The icing on the cake was the fact that my […]

Going to Vienna to see nackte Männer (nude men!)

Leopold Museum with a man out front.

A month and a half ago, I thought my travel plans for 2012 were complete: All my trips were taken, save for the one at the end of the year, when I will escape the war zone that is Germany on New Year’s Eve.

Then I heard […]

Cool Berlin Art

Two weeks ago I went to Preview Berlin, an art fair held during Berlin Art Week.

These were two of my favorite — the top is by Patricia Waller, entitled, “Broken Heroes”. The bottom piece is Benedictions, 2012, by Lutz Wagner.


my name was Liam – Our Broken Voice / subtlemob in Berlin

Scene of the performance.

Saturday evening I participated in a 30-minute theatre event in Berlin, where my name was Liam.

“Our Broken Voice” was a project where participants registered and then downloaded a 30-minute mp3 based on their gender and on their birthdate, creating four characters who would then converge on a public space […]

Deliverance: Two Days into a Performance Art Piece in Prenzlauer Berg

When they start, they have nothing except the 30 square meters: […]

Queen Califia’s Magical Circle Garden

Saturday afternoon, after I left the warm embrace of Filter, I headed north to visit my ex-expat friends who used to live in Berlin.

As a guest I try to be easy going and non-demanding, going along with whatever my hosts suggest, and so I found myself at Queen Califia’s Magical Circle Garden, an absolutely […]

when I am running, the world also runs with me

Thursday was a fun day – meeting old friends in Leipzig (coffee during a forced one hour layover at the train station), Jena (old work colleagues: I still have a mailbox at the old office. No mail in it), and Weimar (lots of friends).

In the evening I found myself at the gallery opening for […]

Salzburg is (mostly) charming.

So my weekend adventure is in Salzburg, Austria.

The city is most famous for The Sound of Music and all that entails.

Well, not actually, but it is probably the reason that most Americans who visit Salzburg visit Salzburg. The rest of the Americans who visit Salzburg are probably here because of the stunningly beautiful […]
