It's 1966, the greatest era for British Rock 'n' Roll.
But BBC Radio plays less than 45 minutes of pop music a day. Fortunately pirate radio stations anchored in the north sea and play Rock and Pop 24 hours a day. And 25 million people, half the population of Britain listen to the pirates every single day. And this doesn't only happen in Britain. There are pirate radio ships all over the european sea. In France, Sweden, Netherlands, Finland to name a few.

By the summer of 1967 the golden age of  British Pirate Radio was over. But their big dream never died. There are now 299 music stations across the United Kingdom. They play Rock and Pop all day and all of the night.
And as for Rock 'n'  Roll, well it's had a pretty good 40 years!

At the age of 14/15 I used to read Stephen King loads. He mentioned the word Incubus  I've never heard before once in a book and I've wondered what that was. I closed the book, turned on the TV and couldn't believe my eyes. Just at that moment MTV was playing "drive" by this band called Incubus. Haha.
Since that day I've been listening to them.                   

Definition of Incubus:
1. A demon, a lascivious/ evil spirit supposed to descend upon and have sexual intercourse with women as they sleep.
2. A nightmare.
3. An oppressive or nightmarish burden.

Earth Hour today. This is real, here and now. Everyone should participate this amazing event. It's about solidarity and taking responsibility. It's something great and huge. I think it's not too much to ask for turning off your lights for only 60 minutes. We owe our nature a lot of things, this is a big step forward. A symbol, a sign for saying hey, I don't agree, I care and I want to get fucking better. Together.

This song was playing as I had my car accidence some time ago.
Ironic, isn't it.
And yes. The band's right. Die happy!

This song, this final scene! I can't get enough of it.

Wow. What a lesson!

"Everyone once and a while I try and imagine — life without legs / eyes / ears. It often scares me and puts me in reverence of those that overcome and don’t even let it slow them down.

All the power to you whatever your situation. Be what you were meant to be."

99 balloons on their way to the horizon

15 March 2010

1000 m above the world. Four hours hiking through knee deep snow. Exhausting but nice! No civilisation far and wide. We lost orientation once because the signs werent much reliable. Weather changed into bad. Laughed about the thought of rescuing us in the wild.
What a mess! I'm officially and spontaneously studing earth sciences since today! Haha. Yes! I know this is weird, it's been a crazy decision I had to make within few hours but before starting my studies in Bristol in september, this was the only possible way to avoid expensive insurance. I found out a gap in the system, me!

Yes. I love to travel lots. It's one of my passions. I love to discover new horizons.
To try exotic food, to learn from wise people, to see interesting culture and tradition, different places. To grow. To make fascinating experiences. To enjoy beautiful nature and animals. To meet like-minded people.
Amazing adventures, I need more of it.

I had a date for a walk, arrived and forgot my dog indeed. Don't know how this could happen.
Zero concentration. Frostbite. Ouch.
Oh and good news!

When I look around
I think this, this is good enough
and I try to laugh
at whatever life brings
cuz when I look down
I miss all the good stuff
and when I look up
I just trip over things

Yesterday night I got really touched by all the comments on the To Write Love On Her Arms page. It made me cry. I just lit the candle next to my friend's picture who died last year and looked around facebook as I got stuck on this one status. Over 500 comments and all people who shared their sorrow by losing someone mostly through suicide, this got under my skin and threw me back in my past. I collected some of the words on here because I think they're worth to remember.

 -this is the real shit ,they were here for a reason and they had a purpose, its sad that at times we only realize what their purpose was after they have already gone. If they only knew the impact they had on our lives , maybe things would be differnt, not necessairly better but definately different, his death is what made me promise i would never do the same. it destroys everyone around you. it sucks.
-If you're losing yourself hold on, you should be inspired that you've come so far
-and the pain is still just as strong
-life is beautiful if you allow yourself to enjoy it
-It almost seems like the longer someone is gone, the more people forget. Thanks for giving us all reminders.
- needed to hear this today too. I lost my brother in October and it feels as though everyone else in the world has moved on with their lives while I'm still stuck on that day.
-I'm losing myself too. If you feel like you are losing yourself and who you are, there is help. I am in that situation and I don't feel like I need a knife anymore. This group has helped and so has observations of the hurt it puts on people.
-What a wonderful thought! I lost my son and it warms my heart to know that his story matters.
-the joy of his life will forever outweigh the pain of his death.
- I came close to losing myself. Which is no longer hard to admit. Yes i have self harmed amongst other things. But i see now that this world is a beautiful place to live in....if you can see the true beauty. You just have to look past all the Bullsh*t. No one ever said life was going to be easy. Treat it as a challenge. See each day as a success. Don't use your body as a canvas....use your memories and your future to paint your masterpiece. And for those of you who have lost someone...they are never truly lost for they have never truly left. A memory is all you need for that person to survive. Remember their smell, their voice, their smile, their embrace or the way they made you laugh. They can never be replaced. But love is the move ment. And love is the healer.
- I have been to the darkest places imaginable and was hi en a second chance when I tried to take my own life. I will always struggle and always, always miss him. But I have joy in my life and a purpose though I may not know it."We are stronger than we give ourselves credit for."
- I was so touched by this, as I am by every comment here. My response is echoed by everyone else's; Thank you for this. I needed it, and it meant a lot to me. I feel an amazing connection to everyone here, and I love the spirit of this organization and everyone involved.
- its very hard to cope with it feels like a whole in ur heart yes u can make urself busy but when i put my head down to sleep is when reality hit
- remember the stars
- we should try our best to make it better for every one

Yep. I used to have red hair like her. I remember now. Always dark brown in winter and in summer intensive red. But this was looooong time agoooo. Last time somebody confronted me with that. Black? Where did you leave your red hair? This is why one of my nicknames at school times was Rotkäppchen, Red Riding Hood.

I wish.

-15°C. In the middle of march. That's NOT normal. Unbearable biting cold. I feel like an icicle in Siberia.
Anyway yesterday evening we were eating supermassive pancakes in a pancake house. Wow. Neither had nor seen such big jumbos. Yummy! Funny company.
Arrived at home after 1 month. Mum's birthday.
I was supposed to win that money. I knew the number right from the beginning. Never could get through and just today I wasn't able to listen to the radio. Damn it!!! When something seems unfair to me, I sometimes could set the whole world on fire, but hey....

Spaghetti for breakfast. Inhaling sage leaves.
I don't understand. It was pretty much spring. All snow was gone and it became to get warmer. One night and everything changed. There is so much snow outside again, a horrible view. At least the sun came out a bit, cold as hell though.

Drunken Dreams

Oh man, great night, great party, great people! Aga's bday singstar party. I had so much fun. Definitely too much of Beverly Hills cocktails. The strongest they had, knocked me out and landed sleeping in the bar. Can't remember much though. I apparently was that drunk, tried to eat a vanilla pod ,confused the joystick with the microphone and while singing into the joystick wondered why it isn't working but nevertheless still continued. Must have been such a great picture for the others ;) and if Anni hadn't cross my way coincidentally as I tried to walk home by my own  without phone, money and orientation but ran in circles around munich without realizing what I'm doing, I probably would have frozen to death outside as spring turned to deep snowy winter overnight.
No really, had such a blast! Yeehaaaa! Missed my girls!

Hi, back from Berlin. First time I took the ICE in my life. Yeah it's true.
I laugh at myself because life is really too short to take it too serious. I love to laugh. I try to laugh at my worries, my insecurities and my anxeties to make them lighter. I laugh when I irritated or confused, I laugh when it's not allowed, I laugh in awkward and embarrasing moments, obviously I laugh at funny and pleasant things the most. Of course I do cry as well because sometimes there is nothing to laugh about. But I simply enjoy laughing hell of a lot more. Sometimes I laugh in order not to cry. Laughing is healthy. Join me :)
Uploaded 18 Beatles albums today. Must have pretty much all songs by now. Hehe.
Can't wait for tomorrow!

You think you have to want
more than you need
until you have it all you won't be free

When you want more than you have
you think you need
and when you think more than you want
your thoughts begin to bleed

there's those thinking more or less less is more
but if less is more how you're keeping score?

society, have mercy on me
I hope you're not angry if I disagree
society, crazy indeed
I hope you're not lonely without me
