​Superlatively superficial

Tue, 26 Dec 2017 19:57:33 +0000

A while ago the famous, traditional London book store Hatchards organized a reading by a female writer, Laura Jane Williams, on the occasion of the release of her book BECOMING. Most of the stories she writes there are comprehended from her internet blog Superlatively Rude I heard about the event at Hatchards on a radio program, and was interested. Therefore… (more...)

104 letters of solitude

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 09:07:15 +0000

When everyone else has left you, it is loneliness that you feel. But when you have left everyone, it will be solitude that you feel. (by Alfred Polgar).

It is October, i.e. harvest time, and most religions use to celebrate this in different context. The German protestants call it “Erntedankfest”, the US protestants “Thanksgiving”, the ancient Persian zoroasts had their Mehregan (Mithra) feast. But although it all has to do somehow with the joy of successful harvest, the focus is differently. The Americans start eating XXXXL meals of… (more...)

Philosophy goes Tinder

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 22:33:48 +0000

The term Philosophy – as we have all learned once in school – simply means “love of wisdom” (from the greek term φιλοσοφία). But wisdom is of course generated by people, and mostly it is also represented by living people. I don’t want to argue again with some religious hypocrites which come up with the idea that there is something… (more...)

Wet Dreams

Sorry that you opened this post expecting to read some adult content. I have to tell you right away you wont find what you expect, unless you are interested in psychology, in particular in the archetypical fear that I occasionally experience. I indeed talk about fear, rather than anxiety, even though anxiety is a more common issue in psychology or… (more...)

Balkan revisited

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 00:34:36 +0000

Stereotypes use to reproduce themselves with almost the same regularity as the ignorance against the objects of these stereotypes increases. The Balkan region of South-eastern Europe is one such example. In the expectations of many westerners, Balkan countries are synonymous with corruption, failing nations, centuries of civil war, and headache by to much of low quality spirits. For the Britons… (more...)

Fading hostility

Sun, 03 Sep 2017 17:53:13 +0000

On our way from the railway station in Lakatnik to our cottage on the feet of the Balkan mountains we always pass two premisses that stand side on side to each other, but are seperated by a barbwired fence. To the family on the left side, Iwan and Koprinka and their daughters we are frequently invited. Iwan worked most of… (more...)

Leave us alone with BDS

Bulgaria always had “Cojones” when it comes to resist antisemitism. During the 2nd world war, despite being an allie of nazi-Germany, it did not allow the deportation of its jewish population. This year Bulgaria and Israel issued a joint series of post-stamps, which show a storch. The storch on its annual travel from northern Europe to Africa made longer rests… (more...)

Location, location, … lovely location

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 19:47:41 +0000

Location, location, location: that’s what every real estate agent will tell you determines the value of a property. I had to think about this, when we recently saw that our funny, belove dog Ivo (who despite the male-sounding name is a 12 years old lady) had her first sexual intercurse and, so saint ovary will, should soon surprise us with… (more...)

UNFAIR: British Tourists use unfair methods to beat the Germans on the Pool Chair Battle

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 07:30:27 +0000

New study shows that british tourists use oversized and missreplaced towels in an attempt to beat the Germans on the pool chair battle. This is an unfair method (“bad, very bad”) and will soon be stoped.   British tourists are winning the sunlounger wars in Spain, waking up hours earlier than their rivals to secure a comfortable spot by the… (more...)
