Weeks fly by

Hey you,

what happened last 2 weeks…
There is the usual Schwalm-parties like the „Aprés Ski-Party“ in China-Messepark. What a party. Mike der Bademeister, DJ Oli P. and Almklausi…speaks for itself, right? They even danced to a song called: „Eskimo Brr“. You gotta watch the Youtube-Video, it’s trashy but fun…and you wouldn’t believe it…it’s on Sing Star Aprés Ski Party 2 for PS2+3:

But I have to admit. Mike is a cool guy! And the Party-Music business seems to be very hard, I think!

Besides being on the party I was on a rehearsal weekend to prepare the founding of TEN SING Gießen on the 18th of march. It’s gonna be very cool.

Thinking of TEN SING and Chinapark: On the China-Messepark is gonna be the ETS Festival in summer 2011. Last week the Early-Bird discount ended and already 1500 people are registrated for the festival!!!!! So it’s gonna be big. Further infos on www.ets2011.eu .

There were a lot of bad car accidents lately here in Schwalmstadt. Drive safe, people. It is not worth the time you safe driving fast…

That’s basically it for now. Communal election preperations are gonna be the end of me…
Cheers

Christmas, New Year and the mines of Moria

Long not seen, folks!

So here is a brief summary about my last 3 big events:

Event 1 (Trip to CZ before Christmas)
As you could read in my last post, I was in Czech Republic and had a nice pre-christmas week. I’ve been to Ostrava Christmas Market, I went to a ball (I was one of two men without a tie), etc. Food, family, music, presents, all inclusive. It was great. Foto 1 gives you an impression.

Event 2 (Christmas to Silvester)
Ok, on Christmas Eve we had traditional meeting at my mom’s with nice food, big presents (see foto 2) and a special guest from USA. After gathering all the presents I could get, I went to church to sing with my good friends from TEN SING. Next two days were other family meetings. It was fine. See foto 3
On 27th, my girlfriend came around and we had another Christmas 🙂 See foto 4 and 5. We toured my family. See foto 6. The next days we sticky noted the whole flat so that I learn so czech vocabulary. See foto 7 There are still some left. We went to Kassel to see the Bergpark and go shopping (Foto 8).
On Silvester we partied in Cologne with old schoolfriends of mine. It was a cool party with lots of nice food (foto 9). The next day we took a short sightseeing trio of Cologne, especially the Dom (foto 10 and 11). It looks like the mines of moria, when you look at the fotos from inside.
On the airport my girlfriend dumped my first Christmas Present for her (a design object, see foto 12)

Event 3
I was ill. For about a week. I won’t show you a foto… I looked miserable… But now I’m back on top and work calls me!

So, hope, you’re filled in. See you guys shortly. One question for you: What do you listen to right now? Me: Ani DiFranco

Stuck in the middle

Hey,

after I slipped and feel softly on my butt on the snowy parking-lot in front of tegut-supermarket earlier this week, this is a serious snow chaos experience for me this year.

I’m stuck at Frankfurt Airport with some 1000 other people. I’ve been waiting long hours in never ending rows with lots of people who partially are travelling since 12 hours and more already. So I’m not so bad off like others around here… In fact, I had a lot of luck till now and there are some gleams of hope that I might really get to destination Czech Republic today.

So here are my bright spots of today:
First of all: My flight at 12 was cancelled but I got booked to a flight that is hopefully going at 22:20… This went really smooth. Only problem: If I really tried to get in line to drop off my luggage I definitely would have missed this flight. You can’t imagine how LONG this line is. Even all the superlatives of this word can’t describe it. So I made up this plan in my mind, that I could just take my far too heavy, far too big bag, put my hand luggage into that and just go to the gate where it says: „Only hand-luggage.“ In line I realized that this idea wasn’t good at all because I aditionally had like 2 bottles of Schnapps in my „hand-luggage“ and all kinds of liquide cosmetica-stuff (you know, I’m a girly-girl! 🙂 ) where you should only be allowed to take 2x100ml of this stuff with you. But I was willing to leave stuff behind, so I went on. So with my 20 kg (10 kg were fluids) overweight and 30cm too big (in every direction possible) I got in line (again) and looked for other people with this kind of „hand luggage“ in line… there were none. So as you can imagine I got a bit of a panic the nearer my part of the line came to the actual luggage check and scan. But when it was my time to shine the female Lufthansa-employee turned out to be the nicest person in the whole wide world. She looked at my luggage and put in in the scanner, looking at me with this funny „I-know-exactly-why-your-doing-this“-look. And believe it or not, she let me in with all the stuff. I didn’t have to dump any of my stuff. I was so reliefed I wanted to kiss her but she refused with a smile. She said, she was married 🙂
So since then I’m sitting at the gate. The situation her is different. You see people sitting around like outside. But first of all, it’s not so many and secondly, they have this twinkle in their eyes, this bit of hope that now they’ve come so far, this could really lead them somewhere. Like me. So I’m sitting around, watching Woody Allen movies (radio city, match point), both terrific movies, but let’s talk about Woody Allen movies some other day. And there is free drinks and newspapers, so I made myself quite comfortable.

And while I’m hoping and wishing that the last flight to Prague (Praha) today won’t be cancelled like all the others, I would appreciate if you guys and girls pray and wish a bit for me too.

Punsch rules!

Hey there.

What a nice little sit-in after this day full of crazy stuff happening. Krischaan prepared a nice Punsch and at first we thought we would be drinking it all by ourselves. 4 bottles of wine, a bottle of rum, anis, oranges, cinnamon, lots of sugar. That was nice! So nice, that the Punsch was gone far too fast… 🙁

And after everyone was leaving, Sander and me, we thought we should start to make some music, took some beers (the Punsch was already gone, you remember) and we messed up some real good songs. Good for you, that we recorded one of these epic fails. Have fun:

Basti feat. Sander – My Yard
For all the people who don’t know it:
Jamie Cullum – My yard

So, what is your opinion towards Guttenberg and Afghanistan?!

It is done!


Wow you people. I wrote the last words of me Bachelor thesis. And here it is…
And some other photos too.
Because although the last 3 days were pretty demanding I was also having some really nice times.
I was at the christmas market, where I played around with my EOS 550 D and tested the exposure time a bit.
Was fun, but you know, there is a crazy lot to learn about SLR-cameras. If you have nice tutorials or websites where I can get solid infos and how-tos, please let me know.
I was also making some detail photos when I was bored from writing.
And the last thing I did, I was playing around with some Picasa features (background-blur and some colour settings) and see there, that’s Vladi in Hamburg in the Speicherstadt. Say hello, Vladi!

So, people. Since I’m done with writing the thesis now, I can go on and revise it tomorrow…or today.
Looking forward 🙂 NOT!
So, see you soon and stay tuned. I will have a lots of time now that I’m done. NOT!
But I will fill this site with some new features. I promise.

winter-wonderland

Hello there,

I switched to English now so that everyone can understand.IMG_0297

Today was a crazy weather. When I woke up I heard the longest traffic-report EVAR on the radio. Because there was so much snow coming down throughout the last night.

While I was in Ziegenhain today in the morning, I took some photos, which I want to share with you:IMG_0300

Picture one shows the preperations for our christmas market in Ziegenhain that will be this weekend.

The second one showes to already frozen “Wallgraben” of Ziegenhain, the moat of the old castle of Ziegenhain.

And one more thing: StudiVZ has VOIP now in the Plauderbox. Isn’t that crazy? I haven’t tried it out, but I heard you can even videochat… Not bad, not bad. Perhaps they no can stand the big brother Facebook. We’ll see what becomes of the VZ-Group.

So, I would really like to know what you people think of the new feature and how you see the future of social networking. Will there even be social networks in ten years? Or will the people be fed up with it? Write a comment and let me know what you think.

See you soon, people. And watch out, that you don’t slip and fall with this much snow around. I already did. Smiley

Erster Blogeintrag

Hallo lieber Leser und liebe Leserin.

Dies ist mein erster Blogversuch auf meiner Webseite. Hier werde ich in Zukunft regelmäßig schreiben. Ich bin sehr gespannt, was uns in der nächsten Zeit erwartet.

Ich freue mich, Euch als Weggefährten auf dieser kleinen Reise dabei zu haben. Zur Zeit bin ich im Abschlussarbeitsstress, werde aber hoffentlich mehr Zeit zum Bloggen haben, sobald ich die Arbeit abgegeben habe. Ich schreibe zum Thema Internetwahlkampf im ländlichen Raum.

Falls ihr Fragen oder Anregungen zum Thema habt, zu meinem Blog oder sonstigen Input, schreibt und kommentiert gerne.

Liebe Grüße

Sebastian
