.how to start with confidence and a degree of humility.

a new number on the paper, and everybody is full with confidence to the world and faith to change everything in society. but it will only happen, when everybody is ready to change his own behavior, is ready to help his neighbor, children, friends or foreigner.

yes we can! at least the most of us… but only if you stop making stupid people famous, vote them for presidents, parliamentarian, majors and so on. we are the streets, the populace, the tribe, or whatever social squad you´re in. but be smart. please let´s stay together as one nation. respect, animals, other opinions, sexualities, preferences, except of your freak shit, then think about it and search for some help! we are all humans, no matter if you are black, white, yellow, brown, straight or gay. we are an evolution of animals by accident. i know you don´t like this thought, but that´s not a fiction, that´s the naked truth! two thousand years ago, we thought the planet is flat, a thousand years ago we´re used to trust that witches can perform miracles, nearly two hundred years ago we invented machines that brought us from one place to another, faster then any horse. now everybody has his own smartphone with as much as knowledge as anytime before, but behave as dump as two thousand years ago. the only miracle what happened any second, minute, hour, day, week, year and decades is nature.

so let us safe this fucking planet!

yes, we can feed any human on this planet, but we don´t. we can possibly fly to other planets, but we don’t. we can have peace, but we don´t. and we can love each other, but we don´t! the barrier is our own mind and intelligence! but if we think about the past hundred years, do you think we are that intelligent??? oh im sorry you finished college and make billions of dollars, cause you sell notional things. but you stopped learning at the school of life!

i feel shame for all of us!

so get your ass off your cosy sofa, study hard, be patient and smart, don´t belief any stupid shit, make your own personal opinion, visit other countries, try to learn and understand their point of view, respect the older generation – one day you will be in the same situation, and possibly the most important point….. have fun and find someone you can share this adventure which we call – LIFE. make a good footprint on this planet, so then we can have the chance for a long and fortunate time. together!

we call it 2017. let´s do this…

.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!
