The 96. 15 April 1989. Never forgotten.
You can download this and colour it in if you want.
Today is the 13th anniversary of the worst concert I ever went to.
Aphex Twin was enjoyable, although I have a vague feeling that we left before the end.
But Whitehouse. Truly awful. This was a photo that was in a German newspaper (and on their Web site) after the show.
From 2006 to 2008, I used to do a monthly mix on this blog. I listened to some of them recently and realised that I kinda miss doing it. We have Spotify now, therefore it’s a ton easier. So here we go: twelve songs that I really like at the moment. They’re mostly pop songs. But pop music is the best music, as we all know.
This week I downloaded the iPad-friendly Pocket Edition of Minecraft. Mostly out of curiosity. I figured that because I do a lot of pixelly drawings, I really should at least know what’s going on with the most famous pixelly thing in the universe. It is a lot of fun. The lack of instructions was a bit frustrating at first, but the Internet exists, so it wasn’t too stressful trying to find a bit of help.
So, I’d just done a Minipop of Drake in the Hotline Bling video, and figured I’d try building it in Minecraft. And as you’ve already seen above, I was relatively successful.
The real Minipop is here.
Back in the day (2000) when I worked at Defcom in Berlin, our boss Johnny gave the employees a Polaroid digital camera for Christmas. Nice. It looked like this:
Images were 320×240 pixels (0.7 megapixels). It had 500kb of memory and held 29 photos. I found a few of the photos I took with the camera. Sadly, at some point along the way, I lost the camera :(
This is the first apartment building I lived in in Berlin. Lovely place. Very lucky to live in such a nice building. (27 April 2001)
A truck, a wall, and a tree. (27 April 2001)

Forty of ’em. Here.
Here’s a couple of “highlights” to make this post longer.
I saw a photo on a Web site, just for a brief moment, of a woman carrying papas in San Cristóbal de las Casas and did a kinda drawing of it of the memory.
