What could this possibly be?

October 1st, 2008 · 2 Comments

I saw this today at work and it struck me as fairly odd. A package of toilet paper that tells you in 20 different languages that it is just that, toilet paper. My guess is that if you are able to read any one (or more) of the 20 translations of “toilet paper”, you already […]

Tangerine Dream on Steroids

August 14th, 2008 · Comments Off

Last night I saw Sigur Ros at the Tempodrom in Berlin. A band from Iceland, I was not very familiar with their music. However, after watching this video, I decided it was probably worth going (just in case). The Tempodrom was an interesting place to see a show. I thought I was watching a show […]

One of the nice things about living in Berlin is the huge amounts of cultural opportunities. Last weekend, Paul and I went to the IMAX theater to watch the new U2 – 3D movie. Not a movie that makes you think a lot, but I was in a mood to listen to loud music, so […]

The Prison Sex Show

January 27th, 2008 · Comments Off

Last night I went to the English Theatre Berlin to see ‘The Prison Sex Show.’ With a title like that, how could I go wrong??? The English Theatre Berlin (formally known as the ‘Friends of Italian Opera’) is a cool little theatre that seems to be randomly placed off some random street in Kreutzberg (a […]
