Fanfest at Kudamm, Berlin : UNBELIEVABLE

WOW, 4:1 ! I was expecting a tense game with a 2:1 finish for Germany, but everything was different.

Yes, we just had 40 something percent ball possesion, so what? We simply made the goals and Englans didnt. Of course as we have all seen, Englans's second goal should have counted. It was a goal for sure.

Sorry for that, but in the end we left the field as the winners.

Some friends and I decided spontaneously to drive to the Kudamm, the heart of Berlin when it comes to Soccer Game Celebration. No car was able to pass through this part of town. The police closed down the area from Wittenbergplatz to the Kranzler Eck and even further.

The atmosphere was amazing.

I dont know how many people were celebrating the win.
I took some pictures with my Canon 1000D.

Maybe, for all the people who could not be there, I can let you be part of that atmosphere through the pictures.

Alright, another one for today.
If you love soccer, if you love the tension, you will love this one.

Its a prank planned and performed by Remi Gaillard with a lot of help from many more.

Its called "The Stupid Cup". He basically organises a lot of people, some coaches, some smoke bombs and horns plus a streaker.
This is just hilarious. They drive up to this amateur soccer game and celebrate in the stands as if they are cheering for a Champions League game.

Enjoy. I was laughing too hard and still can when thinking of the video !!



Watch this guys, its hilarious !!

Its a remake of the world cup semi-final in 1982, France vs. Germany.
The production and planning probably took so long. But as you can see, the result is worth it!!

I found something that you have to share with you, its my first World Cup special!!

Its a graphic which shows you where the players of the teams earn their money!

A fact which is pretty stunning is that our whole German team is employed in Germany as well. Compared to other countries where almost the whole team is not playing in their home country anymore.
Follow this LINK and you will have a real nice high quality version which is animated and with more information!!

This temporary gallery/shop is a project from the guys from UNDPLUS and is. I was more then late, arriving at 6.55 PM and it was supposed to close at 7 PM. Fortunatelly one let me in and have a look and enjoy the pieces of wonderful urban art!

Dulux Walls “Let’s Colour” Project

Again this is a great piece which just lets you have a smile on your face. I love this kind of little youtube videos after a hard day.
The project is about coloring grey spaces worldwide with vibrant colors. It is supposed to be a color movement. Lets see if I start coloring Berlin walls soon. They worked together with communities to color schools, houses and walls from India, London, Paris to Brazil.

Trend: Recycle Drawers

Seen on Stilsucht!

Those two pieces are sold by the Hamburg based galery "Entwurf Direkt"

I like the idea a lot. If I get the chance to gather a few random drawers I'll try to set up my own concept of recycled furniture!

I also really like the concepts from the Berlin based "SchubLaden" as seen below. I especially like the combination of the white wood and the brown drawer! Far more ideas on their website!

Music Tip: The Stuyvesants, directly from Brooklyn!

Brooklyn's Finest, The Stuyvesants

Another Web Wow which will probably be one of my alltime favourites. The music from those two guys is a sample of 70s tunes and instrumentals. Its amazing music which is playing on my iTunes up and down since I discovered it yesterday. And the album is for free!

More information:
" “The Stuyvesants” is a collaborative effort between music producer Allan Cole (Algorythm), and record collector Darien Victor Birks (Flwrpt). Both reside in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY. The two wanted to work together on a project where they could incorporate several of their talents, related to music and design. They wanted to do this under a moniker that would pay homage to the ’70s. The collaboration allowed them to do four major things, design, beat dig, produce amazing music, and simply have fun."

DOWNLOAD their album and donate if you like it!

Cant wait to hear more from the two guys!

Bike Project- Sticker just arrived

The Logo for the front did not come out well though. Will have to get it done once more but the rest is great.

The bikes name is going to be BIROTA 1.0.

Birota is latin for bike, wheel, bicycle or cycle!
My brother is also working on a bike which is going to be named BIROTA 2.0!

What do you think, is the name oldschool enough?
I think it sounds good :)

Will provide pictures with the logo and the finished bike soon.

Antón García Abril "La Trufa"

Well if I would have enough money I would go out in the woods and start building this amazing piece of art that I have just seen on the web.

In English this piece is called "The Truffle".

Antón García Abril is a Spanish musician and composer but his creative mind produced this "building" as well.

The Truffle involved pouring concrete over hay bales stacked and burried inside soil from the surroundings.
Some more steps created a space within a stone that sits on the ground and blends with the territory.

Enjoy this video and the urgent felling of wanting to go out and get creative.
