Had a slice of this one last night, expecting a familiar flavour since it's baked after the "old's world recipe". But it's not even close to a Dresdner Butter Stolle. It tasted more like a fruitcake. And who is Frau Helga anyway?
I am very disappointed.

I stumbled over these awesome gifs on ffffound and they really made my night. I think it's time for gif animation picture frames, Harry Potter style.



Love it. Wish I had a store where I could hang that sign in the front window after closing.

3 More videos that you - dear reader - should watch.

Nr. 1: OstwaldHelgason for TestMag

This is OstwaldHelgason's first collaboration with Testmag for the London fashion week. It's a short movie with pieces of the 2011 spring summer collection, set in a very moody enviroment. Great camera work, the editing is on the point, overall a really good fashion video and a great way to present the as always stunningly stylish new collection.

Ostwald Helgason S/S 2011 from TEST on Vimeo.

Nr. 2: Words

Words is a collaboration with NPR's show Radiolab and the NY & LA based studio Everynone. Wonderfully edited, this short movie shows little bits and pieces of the day to day life in a very moving way. Unfortunately they had to censor one scene, but maybe you can find the original somewhere on the super data highway. Check out their other works, really good stuff!

Nr. 3: "Gettin’ Money With a Mouse and a Wacom Pen (Fuck Comic Sans Fuck Papyrus, Too)"

This one by Daily Planet Productions is a wonderful compilation of in jokes for all the motion graphic people out there. Everything from After Effects to Z-Space was used to make this amazing industry showpiece. If you ever wondered how we do our job, watch the video.

Bringing back the Gifs!!!


Europe Fotos Pt. 1

The latest group sport hit in Germany - Beerbiking. If it was allowed to drink on the streets in the states and if the beer
wasn't so bad I would instantly get me one of these and start a company here.

On German TV, investigative Reporters in funny cloths are explaining the difference between German beer (gold) to
American beer (green).


Pubic Viewing.

Hanging around in the streets of Leipzig.

Zoo Leipzig, certainly worth a visit.

Iced Coffee, German Style.

Private miniature fireworks on the lake.


Gluko & Lennon

Check out this amazing short movie by Punga and L'orange Gutan. So fun, so many great ideas, love it!



Soccer Heat

What a weekend! Amerika and England defeated, taking it - well - more or less professional like Superpowers and Ex-Empires usually do. Love the Headline above!
The temperatures weren't funny anymore, making it a struggle to find AC'd Bars to watch the games. The picture below was taken on the roof this morning at 9:30.

Looks like that's gonna be one hell of a summer - I wish I could hang out in a pool like this: 200m high on top of 3 buildings in Singapore:


From Brooklyn with Love Volume 1

Finally got to make a new mixtape on the weekend, it's the first in a series of 90 minute tapes I am planning to put out this summer. Starting with a deep house selection in volume 1 I am hoping to also mix up some UK-Funk or whatever that new Dupstep slash 2Step thing is called. UK-Step? And then maybe some slower, more beat-heave things. Anyway, I hope you like it and that it sweetens your summer a bit.
