Tolle Serie im Web – Blutsbrüder

Blutsbrüder

ist eine tolle neue hochwertig produzierte Serie im Internet, die man umsonst auf 3min
kucken kann. Der Videoclip-Regisseur Till Obladen (u.a. Tocotronic) hat hier das Drehbuch geschrieben und bekannte Schauspieler wie Antonio Wannek, Kida Khodr Ramadan und Friederike Kempter gewinnen können.

Im Kern geht es um zwei Dealer auf den Straßen Berlins, wobei Ramadan den Mentor gibt und Wannek den Zögling. Wenn sie im alten Volvo cruisen und quatschen, erinnert das in den besten Momenten an die Szenen aus den Sopranos, in denen Tony Soprano und sein Cousin Christopher durch New Jersey touren.

Man sollte Blutsbrüder nicht zu ernst nehmen, es geht hier nicht um die Glorifizierung von Drogen, Ghetto-Life oder Kriminalität, sondern um Unterhaltung. Und das gelingt auf einem Niveau, das man sonst im deutschsprachigen Internet vergeblich sucht.

EDIT: Leider gibt es 3min.de nicht mehr und daher sind die links tot. Schade.

Bundestagswahl 2009

September 27, 2009

nach der Bundestagswahl 2009

Was für eine Katastrophe! Da kämpfen Linke und Grüne jahrelang für die Rechte von Frauen und Minderheiten und wir bekommen eine schwarz-gelbe Regierung mit einer Frau als Bundeskanzlerin und einem Schwulen als Aussenminister… Das muss man sich mal auf der Zunge zergehen lassen.
Horst Mahler brachte es auf den Punkt, als er gefragt wurde, wie er als ehemaliger RAF-Anwalt nun die NPD vertritt. Nicht er habe sich gedreht, die Welt sei um ihn herum um 180 Grad verdreht worden.
Hoffentlich holt die SPD jetzt Lothar Matthäus.
Und Pofalla steht neben Angie bei der CDU-Wahlparty und muss fast weinen.

Amadou & Mariam live in Berlin 2009

Le dimanche à Bamako, c’est le jour de marriage“. That’s the title of my favorite song by this couple from Mali. It means that sundays are wedding days in Bamako, the capital of Mali in Western Africa, where Amadou and Mariam come from.

Amadou and Mariam are both blind and they met at a school for the blind in the 1970s. Their style of Afro-Beat got lots of international attention. Especially when Manu Chao, formerly of Mano Negra, recorded an album with them.

They played to a nearly sold out audience in Berlin’s “Kesselhaus” on February 19th, 2009 and two friends and me plowed our way through several inches of snow to make it there. What a great contrast: Winter wonderland outside, Afro-Beat inside. This was their first show in Berlin since 2006 and the crowd was very enthusiastic. It was a mixed crowd, featuring everything from dreadlock rastas to banker types. Everyone enjoyed the two hours including two encores, one of which was “Le Dimanche à Bamako”…

Mogwai Interview Video

These two scottish lads took some time to sit down and talk to my laptop about their latest album “The Hawk Is Howling”. I wanted to know for example why the put a picture of a bald-headed eagle on the cover instead of a howling hawk. They offer some insight on how to kill the queen of England and explain why Stuart isn’t sent up local Glasgow chimneys anymore.
