So the Chromeo concert in Berlin (1st concert in Germany ever!) got canceled cause Dave1 had an eye disease. Hope he'll get better, soon -- and that the alternate concert will take place when I'm there.
Some tiny random links accumulated over the last weeks:
- A nice Jazz performance slash pantomime video, implementing the communication character of the Bird's sax involved in a heated debate with Dizzy Gillespie's counterpart (thanks, Steffi)
- German history with American support (thanks, François): David Hasselhoff performing "I've been looking for freedom" on the Berlin wall in 1990. Great guy, great jacket, great scarf, great hair, great song. Totally don't understand his recent decline.
- A tiny glimpse on the upcoming posts on German comedians (thanks, Steven): Mathias Richling, one of the better contemporary German comedians, commenting on the German minister of the interior Wolfgang Schäuble and his recent decisions before, during and after the G8 summit (Richling born Swabian, Schäuble a native of Baden, by the way) . Very acid-tongued but definitely funny (unfortunately only in German).
- ...and, of course, the recent hype clip on the web: 5 seconds of dramatic chipmunk
