Shit people say.

This videos are around now for a while but I really, really have to dedicate a post to them. Everything started last December with the “Shit Girls Say” video, done by some LA movie makers and featuring Juliettte Lewis. Since then Youtube has been flooded with clips that simply celebrate prejudices – “Shit yogis say”, “Shit dads say”, Shit girlfriends say”… But the great thing about them as well as the core of every prejudice is that there is a little bit of truth hidden inside and it simply makes us laugh because we see oureselfes in it.

And if you’re looking for some more – I collected some of the best in my Youtube channel here.

Photography in Love with Motion.

Some days ago I stumbled over a collection of pictures. But these were really different, because although they froze a moment in time, like photography does, they showed a little bit more – movement, that offers a deeper look into the scenery.

I got a wonderfull and unexpected easter present from my lovely partner in crime: “Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs”, a beautiful Taschen coffee-table book. As you might already know I am a big Beatles fan but must admit I know little about Linda. And this book is amazing! Her photography just really gets to me…

Oh, these nerd glasses.

I must say, I have a thing for nerd glasses – and there are some men, who can really wear those! ;)

That Zeppelin.

A documentary about the Hindenburg catastrophe yesterday in the evening, reminded me about how much I really like zeppelins. I mean, they are the most majestic and just as well biggest thing I can think of and I get the shivers when I try to imagine what it must have felt like to stand near to one of those massive and at the same time airy vehicles. So, here are some pictures as well as some art I found, all featuring this beautiful, and yet dangerous, machines:
