Haus Aus Spiegel – Der W

And there it is, the next masterpiece straight from the mind or heart of Mister Weidner, my personal prophet. I do wonder where these kind of songs are coming from, is it more a heart or head thing? I fell in love immediately when I heard the first notes. The opening somehow reminds me of the incredible bass solo by Jason Newsted. I was complete in awe when I first time heard it. Another song...

Personal OKR Review – 04/2022

Again massively delayed, I present myself the April review for my personal OKR set. Due to my new pal, or soon-to-be-pal (I hope), I now lost around 5 kilo in four weeks. That’s something and a good starting point. Massive jump here, which is mostly due to getting my dog. So things are moving here quite nicely right now. nothing will happen here for the next 1-2 months for sure. No progress...

Der Berg Bewegt Sich Nicht – Der W

Der W released the first two songs from his upcoming fifth long-player “V”. To be honest, not impressed so far. Solid songs, but nothing special. I’m a bit bored, that after the first two records got dedicated names, since the third one it’s just the number. Either you do that from the start or you don’t. It’s inconsistent, my inner Monk can’t process...

Lügen – Rammstein

Definitely my favorite song besides the title giving Zeit on the latest Rammstein long player. I believe, one of Til’s honest songs ever 🙂 So, how is Zeit? Well, it seems the critics find it pretty lame, while most fans like it a lot. Myself? I have to agree that it partly appears a bit bloodless with too much room for the juvenile stuff, but then again, Zeit, Meine Tränen and Lügen will be...

Fatal – RZA

Just popped in my head. Granted, from todays standard, especially the third Blade is a bit cheesy, but in general not a bad trilogy. And this song stuck with me right away. Still good tunes. Blade, ready to dieI was born ready, motherfucker Daywalker, daywalkerDaywalker, daywalker Yo, yo, yoIt’s the feast of the blood with sin, unleash the beast withinI walk around, with the strength of a...

Gangsta’s Paradise – Coolio

Popped into my head some days ago and remains a great song. You can literally smell the ghost of the 90’s in these tunes, while the lyrics couldn’t be more current I believe. Somehow the line I’m a educated fool with money on my mind always gets me … As I walk through the valley of the shadow of deathI take a look at my life, and realize there’s nothin’...

Wort Zum Sonntag – Die Toten Hosen

Happy Birthday Hosen! Beside the Onkelz, maybe the most important band for me, who I have been loyal to for a long time. Not even sure how long to be honest, but I’d say, I know them since Kauf MICH! – and that’s now 29 years. Time flies … Früher war alles besserFrüher war alles gutDa hielten alle noch zusammenDie Bewegung hatte noch Wut Früher, hör auf mit früherIch will...

Wir brauchen neue Probleme

Rassismus, Sexismus, Nationalismus, Klimakrise, Gier, religiöser Irrsinn. Die immer gleichen Probleme, die uns seit Jahrhunderten umtreiben, ja aufhalten. 37 Jahre auf diesem Planeten und ich wünschte, es gebe zumindest mal ein paar neue Probleme die uns umtreiben. Das gilt ja nicht mal für die Klimakrise, die wird uns seit 40 Jahren oder länger prophezeit, wollte halt nur keiner wissen. Gut...

Personal OKR Review – 03/2022

Kinda missed the February review, but that doesn’t matter. There wasn’t so mich progress anyway, same as for March. Only now I slowly Progress is only driven by the sportive activities, instead of losing, I’m gaining weight right now. Super annoying and frustrating. I’m in the final stretches of getting my doggy, but not done in March, so there is no movement. Not doing...

I Should Have Known – Foo Fighters

I’m not a massive Foo Fighters fan. I like quite some songs, but many are also not really my thing. But the band is just brilliant. Such lovely people. I can’t imagine how they must feel right now, losing their drummer all of a sudden, in the best age. How Dave Grohl must feel right now. It seems to unfair and unbelievable. I should’ve known that it would end this wayI...
