Mogwai Interview Video

January 28, 2009

p899-057_080808_sly_1023_interview_oya_mogwai_aMeet Barry and Stuart from Mogwai. 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.

Watch the whole iNterview with Mogwai here on Hobnox!

p895-039_080726_clt_0009_twitterlesung_pt08_report_a2Twitter ist ja momentan in aller Munde, sogar Schmidt und Pocher konnten sich gestern darüber amüsieren. Durch die neue gewachsene popkulturelle Bedeutung des Twitterns wird die Berichterstattung von Deutschlands erster Twitterlesung umso bedeutsamer und taugt schon zum wesentlichen Stück neuester Zeitgeschichte. Es lesen und diskutieren u.a. Sascha Lobo und Mario Sixtus, sowie der beste One-Liner-Autor auf Twitter Frank93.

Die Twitterlesung auf Hobnox.

Teenage Angst coming to cinemas in Germany

January 21, 2009

teenage-angstLast year I had the opportunity to interview up and coming young german actor Franz Dinda (The Cloud, A Year Ago In Winter) during the international student film festival Sehsuechte in Potsdam. He took home a couple of awards for the film “Teenage Angst”, which at a length of 64 minutes is stuck between the genres. Not really a short but too short for the cinemas. Finally in 2009 somebody decided this coming of age drama about adolescence in an upper-class boarding school was in fact good enough to be screened. The interview is in german and starts after about 15 minutes of the report I made on the Sehsuechte-Festival 2008, which is in itself quite fun, if I may say so.
