.merry x-mas all of you.

i had a lovely christmas this year with my family near the swabian alb. this landscape has a very unique romantic which i really recommend. sadly it was not snowing in this year, but hopefully it will in the next few weeks. don´t miss that, if you are ever in the near.

can´t wait for our wonderful trip to bali, new zealand and japan the next half a year, so stay tuned.

and thanks to my wife, my new family, my mom and my dad, the support you’re giving us, you are the greatest for me, that was a hell of a year!

my name is baum!

.dear diary.

.AN OPEN LETTER TO NYC.

Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin
Black, White, New York you make it happen

Brownstones, water towers, trees, skyscrapers
Writers, prize fighters and Wall Street traders
We come together on the subway cars
Diversity unified, whoever you are
We’re doing fine on the One and Nine line
On the L we’re doin’ swell
On the number Ten bus we fight and fuss
‘Cause we’re thorough in the boroughs and that’s a must
I remember when the Deuce was all porno flicks
Running home after school to play PIX * 1
At lunch I’d go to Blimpies down on Montague Street
And hit the Fulton Street Mall for the sneakers on my feet
Dear New York I hope you’re doing well
I know a lot’s happen and you’ve been through hell
So, we give thanks for providing a home
Through your gates at Ellis Island we passed in droves

Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin
Black, White, New York you make it happen

The L.I.E. the B.Q.E
Hippies at the band shell with the L.S.D.
Get my BVD’s from VIM
You know I’m reppin’ Manhattan the best I can
Stopped off at Bleeker Bob’s got thrown out
Sneakin’ in at 4: 00 am after going out
You didn’t rob me in the park at Dianna Ross

But everybody started looting when the light went off
From the South South Bronx on out to Queens Bridge
From Hollis Queens right down to Bay Ridge
From Castle Hill to the Lower East Side
From 1010 WINS to Live At Five
Dear New York this is a love letter
To you and how you brought us together
We can’t say enough about all you do
‘Cause in the city were ourselves and electric too

Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin
Black, White, New York you make it happen

Shout out the South Bronx where my mom hails from
Right next to High Bridge across from Harlem
To the Grand Concourse where my mom and dad met
Before they moved on down to the Upper West
I see you’re still strong after all that’s gone on
Life long we dedicate this song
Just a little something to show some respect
To the city that blends and mends and tests
Since 911 we’re still livin’
And lovin’ life we’ve been given
Ain’t nothing gonna take that away from us
Were lookin’ pretty and gritty ’cause in the city we trust
Dear New York I know a lot has changed
2 towers down but you’re still in the game
Home to many rejecting know one
Accepting peoples of all places, wherever they’re from

Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin
Black, White, New York you make it happen

now i can cross “listening Beasty Boys on top of Rockefeller Center” from my Bucket List. check.

.moma.

visiting the museum of modern art is a real must! i can recommend goin on a friday evening because the entry is for free. you can safe 70$ for 2 persons!!!!

if you are inside you will know instantly that the real impressive art on 5 floors is secondary for any other around you. its just a competition shooting a picture with their mobile and slide to the next mind blowing art to linger there 10 seconds! this would be so nice without the other people, i still can see the dalí in my mind with every amazing detail. one of the most impressive things i´ve ever seen in my life. the feeling is overwhelming. stay longer, absorb it, you´ll probably never see it again. let the mobile stick in your pocket, and have a look with your eyes, not trough a screen!

boom!

.urbanromantix.

it really helps me sometimes to switch the point of view, to understand the other side. Egoism helps nobody instead of yourself. but you are not alone on this planet! you´re just one of a kind under a billion of small little animals. well, too poetic!?

ok but helping your older neighbor, recycling your trash, or voting not an idiot isn´t a tall order, right?

i will really miss you new york! you switched my point of view in so many ways!

.locals only.

Hey friends,

the day is over. we´re laying tired in our apartment in brooklyn. it´s quiet. i missed the sirens from over the day, it gives you the wonderful permanent feeling of being in the slightly rotten apple. the never ending flood of influences gives you a mixed feeling from tension till discontent. it is superb dirty. not in a disgusting way! it is… charming.
carry bradshaw would end up with that clause:
… are we local now?

hahaha

we have a wonderful time here! the locals are amazingly pleasant, and i find myself thinking one hundred times a day: ” wow, i would love to live here for years!” each neighborhood is fantastic unique in his own way. my favorite is dumbo for the next two hours, since we join another one!
