Mrz

.from now to fiction.

time to wake up, time to change things.

time to act, time to safe my fucking planet.

time to get in charge, time to let loose.

time to take care, time to oppose.

time to believe, time to know.

time to help, time to understand.

time to love, time to trust.

time to looking forward, time to grow up.

time is relative and our fiction. what are you waiting for…

Mrz

.the answer is you.

people are made to follow other people, as you can see in social media or an even worse example – the ww2 or the last president election in the us. the smarter one under a few, try all their best to take advantage of the simple minds. but a simple mind, is not always an idiot, don´t get me wrong!! for example a farmer isn´t an idiot, because he´s “just” growing vegetables or breed cows. he gets in charge for a hundred of people and give them food and is smart enough, not to be a banker.

the more intelligent people try to get as far as they can from the first one above. the more time i spend in this country on the other side of the planet, the more i think, this is the farest point you can reach, not to get in touch with those freaking poor souls. they are wrecking everything what is from importance like: love, nature, family & friends, piece & quiescent or wildlife and the creatures who cannot fight back. to name just a few under thousands of possible matches.

it´s nasty to watch this from the outside whats happening in europe, america, africa and asia. so much hate, so less humanity, misunderstandings, political propaganda and greed for money. as you may know, when you are working on a project and you are really deep into it… it´s good to leave it for a while, and ask a third person to give you another opinion about it. that´s what i´m doing on this journey.

so the answer of all those problems are you.

YOU ARE IN CHARGE

of all this what´s happening arround you. you are responsible to vote, recycling, take care of you’re neighbors, kids, friends, homeless people, environmental polution, your job, or your employees, line manager, sanity, ecological and financial prudence, … . you don´t have to work until you´re dying in a job you hate from 9am to 5pm. quit, search another one you really love and give the possibly best you can. We are not born to work so hard that we´re dying from the consequences. and i think more than 75% of all people have this kind of daily work.

it´s just thoughts, it´s just my opinion, it´s just a scenario! you may think about the consequences and the truth.

Mrz

.if you try to be individual.

well, i met a lot of people so far. different nations, societies, professions, sexualities, tribes, clubs, couples or homeless people and so on…

what can i say to 99,7%,  you are not individual even though you try. we are just one under zillions of people. each of them try to be individual. non of us is!

think about that, it´s not always about your look or your opinion, it´s how you act, and how you treat your environment. it happens exact the same somewhere around the globe, each second with another one which nearly thinks the same.

ohhhh- and if i talk about individual people and being unique… stop shopping at primarkt, or woolworth, or similar. YOU´RE NOT!

they are the most fucking companies on the planet, include a few other, which i will slap/hit/kick/spit/shit in a few posts later in the blacklist of companies!

even though i hope your twin in mind is not a nazi, rapist, trump elector, psycho, stalker, kardashian, or another freak of nature. it´s totally ok to be a white guy listening gangster rap, and totally ok to be a black heavy metal geek. we are all black, redhead, white, gay, straight, curled, freckled, disabled, 6 fingered human. we are all born on this one planet by coincident. you cannot feel superior to someone who is born by coincident in another country, behind a wall a government built, or a imaginary borderline, and has another skin color or accent. you are so stupid if you think like that. it´s accidental! otherwise i hope, you will have this life you hate right now, in a future life!

.the man who sold the world.

an open letter to decades.

i miss you david… i´m sitting in the mowed meadow, thinking about your songs, searching some answers. millions have listened to your voice, but nobody understood what you said.

what happened to the man who sold the world?? i´m telling you – he´s president of the united states of america now. lucky you, you don´t have to see all the sadness in the world now. millions of people living afraid and worried, with no hope in mind. and i think they need your voice again to give some comfort. what have the two of us to do now?? yes, i know never give up. >> you´re laughing, right?? << i can hear you!

you already did your work. a whole life given to meaningful words. now you’re gone, and i still miss you!

nothing changed. i´m sitting in the mowed meadow, listening to david bowie – the man who sold the world.

.90 miles away.

we felt honored to visit the „90 mile beach“. as you can see below, another incredible piece of nature originated millions of years ago. we met no human being.

i really get mad about the whole industry in our parts of the world. murdering our nature sources is a REALLY good idea, folks. yes let´s do it *sarcasm hint*!  you went on a collage, graduate most successfully, grab a rare job in the industry and make a ton of money. so do i have to illustrate you this imaginary picture? why it is on vogue to be the most sensless idiot in the world instead of being a hero for millions of people and take care of our surroundings? why are we that stupid?? it is possible to have both- a good working industry and taking care of the nature. the result is that companies just earn millions of our money instead of billions. so what´s the deal?!

did you know that a simple plastic bag, the most of us are using for shopping in a supermarket or their favourite clothing stores, needs more than 400 years to decompose??!! For a 15 minute walk back home??

MORE THAN FOUR HUNDRET YEARS!

and it is not gone! it is just so small that you can not see it anymore. and what you can´t see does not exist, right??

WRONG, trump elector!!!!

how many plastic are you using a week?? 30 million of plastic bottles are used in bali, PER MONTH! three hundred and sixty million of plastic bottles a year! and this is a really small island. they sell this aluminum bottles everywhere and you can ask for a free refill on tab water.

did you know that roundabout 80% of all oxygen where prodused by the ocean?? And just 20% from our green lungs?? can you imagine how many waste we dumb in??? did you ever heard the size of the plastic-waste island in the pacific?

dude what should i say- go to collage, graduate as good as possible and help your environment. do some veteran things, produce recyclable materials, invent a plasticless world or non nuclear power. whatever you do, don´t be one of this stupid cunts which makes rich people just richer, so they can´t trying to built casino´s on the most sensible eco system in new zealand, just for fun, like the owner of camel tabak, years ago.

please- be smart and safe my fucking planet. otherwise you are not able to make your urgent holidays from financial stock market in the caribbean…cause there is non.

.mangawai.

we´re going up north… i forgot more and more the crazy civilization, the overcrowded cities, smok, silly problems, and the unimportant life i had so far. i am nature drunken. things become so irrelevant when you are surrounded from epic mother nature. you seek of fame? i seek for inner peace. and this is probably one good way to find it. i had my first dream in english – it was strange, and i barely can´t remember. this is the other side of the world!

.z-land.

brothers and sisters-

as you may read in the last entry, we did it to new zealand!! currently – auckland city!

fun fact – auckland is listed on the world´s most liveable cities at the 8th place in 2016!

what an amazing place! they really know how to enjoy life and it´s so slowed down. you can imagine how sweet a place can be, when it´s normal to say >thanks for the good ride< to the bus driver! yes, we have a pretty good time in our lovely air b´n´b in grey linn and watch the tides from the breakfast table. 72 hours are gone and we already joined a guns n´roses concert with slash and axel, 10 minutes walk from home! so i crossed from my bucket list: have seen slash playing his double armed guitar, whilst slamin “sweet child of mine”.  √

now we just stray around, have some coffee and soak up all we get in between, until we will receive our camper van in the next few days. i think we will pimp it super nice and get the party started!

oh! by the way… i love you hanna, thanks for being the best travel buddy and beloved wife of all times!

.soulfood.

hey friends,

while i´m texting this short blog, i´m sitting barefoot in auckland, in the middle of a rugby court.

so this is a mixed view of the amazing food we had so far in bali. the typically smartphone trash everybody is blogging. YEAH here it is. get jealous or not, but that was super delicious! we really recommend the fruit and vegetable/fish bowls, which you can get there everywhere. and thats another sign, that most of us in the first world are really behind the trends. crap convenience food instead of simple, super fast and healthy goods. you know why?? because they care!

.moving on.

god damn. three weeks are gone like an eye twinkle. we have to leave tomorrow *crying*

but, hey! this was a freaky amazing time on this island and we met so marvelous people, made so new friends, have seen nature from a spectacular site, had awesome food and impressive culture. all in all – bali nailed it!

i will kick some throwback posts from time to time, because i made trillions of pictures and movies, but had not the time to edit it. we will heading off to new zealand tomorrow in the evening for a really long time. so stay tuned, if you wanna dream a bit as we do. reality is really killing it this time and i will do my best to capture it and give you an uncensored version of life at the opposite site on the planet. this was just the warm up shooting, now we´re getting serious!

so this is not “good bye”, this is “see you in a bit, bali!”
