Reading that Bela's concert in Innsbruck was really good, in a small but not too crowded club and that they stayed there to sign autographs and chat with the fans after the gig makes me want to cry a little. At least I had a valid reason for not going, but still... :(

*pouts like a spoilt child*

Barely in time...

Any typos or funny sounding expression?

I'm finally done with all my Christmas shopping. *collapses* I wanted to do everything today so I can start packing up tomorrow, plus I'm going to chat with my parents via Skype (IF they remember about it! :P) tomorrow afternoon, so I wouldn't have much time anyway.

I went to the Christmas market in front of the Rotes Rathaus at first, but it was so, so cold, after an hour I couldn't feel my hands anymore. D: So I just ran into a shop, where, luckily, I could find a couple of small presents. Then I just went to the Alexa shopping centre, which was so incredibly crowded, but who cares, at least it was warm. And I could find everything I was still missing, even the present for my dad. I also bought THE COOLEST T-shirt for me.

And I only paid 9€ for it! :D So now I own two blue T-shirts. :P

And now, for the WTF moments of the day:

WTF #1: Punkreas are playing in Berlin in January! At the SO36! I'm going back home for a couple of weeks in January/February because I'm going to have a free month between the Praktikum I'm doing now and the next one, and I was thinking of leaving on the 19th or 20th, but since they're playing on the 21st, I'll stay a couple of days longer. Punkreas in Berlin! Fuck, yeah!

WTF #2: My Prawda is already here! And there are 5 of my photos in it! Including a full-page photo on page two! *is proud* Thanks for choosing them! (You know who you are. ;) )

Apropos pictures, here are the ones from the Bela concerts in Leipzig and Berlin. They didn't come out so well, sorry.

And a short video: Gary, Holly and Olsen at work. With Holly messing up and having an adorable "D'oh!" moment. <3

gothikmaus: (RAWR!)
I should feel sorry for Mr B, right? Violence is not the answer but, fuck, he had it coming.

Anyway, here are the pictures from the 2 Bela gigs in Hamburg. Leipzig and Berlin will follow.

New Los Helmstedt comic strip!

For some reason, I have the feeling there's a mistake or typo somewhere. Could someone check, please? So I can send the link to a certain bassist and a certain guitarist...

Oops, I still need to upload the pictures from the last 4 shows... *headdesk*
gothikmaus: (OMGWTF!)
You know what? LJ is actually not blocked. But I don't want to risk it, I'll just post this and log off.

So, here's the second part of my Rambling Report(TM). I'll upload pictures tomorrow.


8th December, Leipzig


- I had to take the train from Hamburg to Hannover and from there to Leipzig, but the first one was late and I thought I would miss the connection. Luckily the second train was late too. Danke, Deutsche Bahn!

- At Leipzig Hauptbahnhof I met up with [livejournal.com profile] slash_kitten; we took a walk around the Christmas market, she bought me Apfelglühwein (danke nochmal ♥) and then, since the weather was kinda crappy, we ended up in a Starbucks and just chatted until I checked my watch and found out it was already 4:45 PM and I still had to go to the hostel, check in etc.

- The hostel was an A&O, but it was completely different from the one in Hamburg: the foyer looked like the one of a 4-star hotel and the room was great. If you ever need a hostel in Leipzig, go there.

- I arrived at the venue at 6:20 PM and there was an actual orderly queue! At first I thought "So much for trying to sneak to the front", but I quickly realised people would never stay in line when the doors would open and I was right: the line was sort of L-shaped and once the security opened the door, everyone rushed to the front. Final result: second row between Holly and Bela. *thumbs up*

- Bela's way to make the audience cheer louder: "Ick bin Berliner, ick bin besser jewohnt!"

- Bela's trousers were a bit too big and kept slipping down. No silver thong this time, just plain black underwear. Boring! ;)

- After Holly's "Keiner versteht mich, Leipzig!" Bela commented "Keiner versteht dich in Leipzig? Für dich ist das Glas immer halbleer, oder? Du spielst auf dieser Bühne, mit dieser großartigen Band und gestern hat Gary sogar Oralsex im Tourbus angeboten!" Or something along those lines. The audience then screamed to prove that, ja, wir verstehen dich, Holly, and Bela introduced "Was ist nur los" saying "Alle verstehen Holly, aber ich verstehe die Frauen." And went on saying he had been described as "Punk womanizer" or something and added "Well, it's true". Did I mention he's a total poser? :P (Actually, I'm not sure if he said this in Leipzig or somewhere else, but whatever.)

- Then it was Olsen's turn to become the target of Bela's jokes. Bela: "Ich bin ein Mann der Wörter, Olsen ist ein Mann des Penises." At that Olsen made such a funny face, you could virtually see a big WTF speech bubble above his head. Bela then went on saying Olsen has a big dick but "er kommt nach anderthalb Sekunden". Care to explain how you found out? XD

- The Bobotanz Ansage was about music for "Bumsenmachen". Danny said "Of course if you're Bela fans you would play The Beatles!" At that Bela collapsed on the floor and Danny said "Oh no, sorry, I meant...*insert band I can't remember here* or... Die Ärzte!" and Bela just burst out laughing. After the song Danny said Bela is the biggest bobo of all. And he's kinda right, you know. ;)

- After the concert I caught a glimpse of Schwarwel chatting with the techs at the mixer. Yay, celebrity spotting! XD


9th December, Berlin


- The first thing I did when I got home was taking out my combat boots (they're great if you need to keep your feet dry, but after 4 days I couldn't feel my toes anymore); then I took a long, warm bath and finally ate some decent food. I think I've never loved pasta as much as I did in that moment. :P

- There was another Italian fan at the concert, she had come from Rome to see it and it was her first Bela gig, so we decided to try and get to the front, because a) she's not so tall and wanted to be sure she would be able to see him and b) I was in a "front row mood", you know, to celebrate the last show. We met in front of the venue around 15:30, which is early for a Bela concert, especially in winter. There were already people waiting, but we got to the front row with no problem, in a nice spot on the left side. We wanted to shout something silly in Italian, but in the end we only sang along to "Dracula chachacha", since we were probably the only two people in the audience who could understand the (very silly) lyrics. ;)

- Of course the one time I'm in the front row, they have cameras recording the show and photographers taking tons pictures of the audience everywhere. I'm sure I'll end up in a photo looking ridiculous. D'oh.

- And, since they were recording the concert, Bela had to forget the lyrics of a few songs. He even played the first few verses of "Satan, Gott und das Glück" and then started it again from the beginning. And apropos "Satan, Gott und das Glück", Holly did a bit of moonwalking before it and ended up stomping Gary's guitar pedals and messing up all the settings. Well done, guys! XD

- Bela's introduction to "Was ist nur los" was "Frauen, ich verstehe euch, Alter!" So charming. XD

- Bela mentioned "Rodrigo Gonzalez ist hier" and when the audience wasn't loud enough before "1. 2. 3..." he said "Rod schläft grade im Backstage ein!" I think he may have mentioned Farin as well, but I can't really remember if/when/where.

- The audience started clapping in time at one point and either Bela or Olsen commented: "Berliners are very good at clapping. And they keep the beat!" And then I'm sure it was Bela who said "Too many Peter Fox concerts?" And Olsen replied "Or Die Ärzte?"

- Danny's introduction for Bobotanz was in German this time, even if he said "People who know me know my German is Scheiße!" After the song Bela made various Bezirke scream; he started with the Prenzelbergers, of course, then with Kreuzberg, then Spandau (he pointed at the guestlist area where his family was) and, finally, Neukölln. Neukölln, Alter!

- And after the Bobotanz we got... the Homo dance, featuring Alexander Marcus. No comment. XD

- We got a lot of football jokes as well, mainly about Hertha-BSC and aimed at Olsen and Gary, who were not amused. ;)

- After "Gitarre runter" all the band (except from Holly, who was busy checking something) knelt down in front of Olsen and worshipped him while he played his solo.

- Towards the end of the concert I caught a glimpse of Rod standing at the right side of the stage. When it was over, [livejournal.com profile] darth_funk came to me and said "OMG Rod is standing just in front of us!" HAHA, who cares about Bela when you can see Rod? ;)

- After the concert I also caught a glimpse of Frank Z (Maike, you're right, he's really short!) and saw Gary and Holly hanging around chatting with some friends. Danny was there too, but just for two minutes, then he went backstage with his girlfriend. I was tempted to go to Holly and just thank him for the great concerts (yes, I'm a total Holly fan, how did you guess), but in the end I didn't. There wasn't the same laid-back atmosphere from the last tour, when the band used to hang around and chat with fans after the shows. And he was talking to some people anyway, I didn't want to bother him.


So, that's it. Bela's going to play a few festivals next summer (and maybe a couple of warm-up gigs like they did in 2007?), but it's way too early to think about it, I don't even know where I'll be by that time. But even if I go back to Italy, the central week of August is the traditional holiday week for us, so going to at least one festival shouldn't be a problem. I'd prefer a normal gig, though.

Man, I can't believe the tour is already over.
gothikmaus: (OMGWTF!)
WTF am I doing still up?! I'll never wake up in the morning. D: I met with the other Italian fan earlier, the one who was at the concert in Berlin, and now I'm not tired at all. I'll just post this entry I wrote earlier.

The Bela tour is over and, while I'm not suffering from the usual post-concert depression (yet), I do feel melancholy. But I'm very happy I decided to go to 5 concerts: there was no way the Berlin one was going to be enough, I knew that, after seeing one gig, I would crave more and, since Berlin was the last show of the tour, that would have certainly lead to a huge post-concert depression. :P

Quick tour summary: Bela is a total poser but, fuck, he's hot; Holly is one hell of a great bassist; I could see a hundred concerts without getting tired.

Ans here's the usualy report consisting of random memories. I can't assure that every memory belongs to the right concert, things start to blend together when you see 4 concerts in a row and don't write stuff down at once.

I'll start with the two Hamburg gigs. Pictures are on their way, I still need to touch them up in Photoshop.


6th December, Hamburg

- First of all: the Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket rocks. I found someone who had one at the first try and only paid 5 euros to get from Berlin to Hamburg. Beginner's luck, I suppose.

- I stayed at the A&O Hostel on the Reeperbahn just around the corner from the venue. The standards were much lower than the other A&O hostels I've been in, but it was just for two nights, so that's OK. Also, I guess those are Reeperbahn quality standards anyway. Check in was from 4 PM, so I just left my rucksack in the luggage room and went down to the club to see if there was already someone there. Of course 5 or 6 people were already sitting there, but I really didn't want to wait that long (I think it was around 2:30 PM), so I just walked past and pretty much stumbled into [livejournal.com profile] darth_funk and [livejournal.com profile] kiviraat. Small world, indeed. We had a coffee together and spent a couple of hours just chatting in a bar with nice tiger and leopard print cushions.

- I went to the venue around 5:30 PM and there weren't that many people there. Too bad doors opened later than usual (at 8:00 PM, which is the time when the opening act usually starts to play. Damn Hamburg and its nightlife. :P)

- Across from the club there's a church, its bells ring every 15 minutes and at the hour there's a nice long melody. A church right in the middle of the red-light district must do anything to attract attention, right? ;)

- The concert was very good, I could see the band had improved a lot since Dresden (2nd show of the tour). I was standing in the second row in front of Holly and had a very relaxing concert up until "Tag mit Schutzumschlag", when a group of girls started jumping all around me. Meh.

- Bela had to mention Farin again, of course: before "1. 2. 3..." he played the usual "What comes after *insert ridiculous high number*", but the audience was smart and got all the numbers right, so he said something like "Nicht nur bei Farin Urlaub gibt es Abiturienten im Publikum."

- Olsen was talking back to Bela and Bela told him to shut up and said something along the lines of "Don't talk back to me, I'm the one who pays you!" And Olsen said "Yeah, but not much." And Bela: "It is much. In a parallel universe. Or in India, for example."

- Bela really likes having thousands of adoring fangirls in front of him. One of the Ansagen was "Könnt ihr mich sehen? Und gefällt euch was ihr seht?" *rolls eyes* Also, during "Ninjababypowpow" he grabbed the stage structure (no idea what's it called in English, I only know the Italian name because I actually studied it at uni) and started swaying like a stripper.

- The Bobotanz Ansage wasn't the standard one from the CD this time: Danny said something about someone doing some medical analysis and the doctor diagnosing they were a Bobo because he had found traces of tofu and cheap beer (Boheme) as well as traces of caviar and champagne (Bourgeois) in his faeces. Even Bela looked disgusted. XD

- Allow me to be a silly fangirl and say "OMG, Bela winked at me!" I'm perfectly aware he does that with half of the girls standing in the front, but it's still a nice feeling when he looks at you and you can actually see recognition in his eyes.


7th December, Hamburg

- I had a walk around in the morning, bought a red leopard print scarf (♥♥♥) at the Christmas market in Altona, went down to the harbour for a bit and went to the venue in the mid-afternoon. I ended up in the second row almost directly in front of Bela and it turned out to be a rather quiet spot, maybe because the club wasn't as full as the previous evening.

- While I was waiting outside, I could catch a glimpse of a photo shoot that was going on onstage as the security opened the doors for a while in the afternoon. I wonder where/when the pictures are going to be published.

- The opening act was a '50s/rockabilly band with a singer that looked like an elderly version of Elvis and two (TWO!) contrabasses. The contrabass players were totally crazy: one of them started playing standing on one of the amps and the other standing on the contrabass itself. Great.

- The guestlist area was apparently full of St. Pauli football players and Bela kept making football jokes, also because there was a fan wearing a HSV jersey somewhere, who was the main target of said jokes (but Bela apologised after every single one, aww.)

- After Holly's usual "Keiner versteht mich, Alter!" during "Satan, Gott und das Glück" (which I love, btw), Bela hugged him and said "Sometimes men just need to be hugged. But it can lead to embarrassing moments, right Holly? Or is that a bunch of keys in your trousers?" Bela clearly misses the slashy moments he used to share with Wayne. ;)

- I really, really like Holly, his stage presence is much stronger than Tim's, who just stood in his spot in the background, said "Bass" once during the whole concert and that was it. I still miss Wayne, but I have to admit this Los Helmstedt line-up is very good. Even if I was bad and always cheered really loud for Holly (hey, I gotta support a fellow bassist) and only half-clapped for Gary. Oops. :P

- Danny said St. Pauli players were all a bunch of bobos and at the end added Maradona wasn't a bobo, but did a lot of "coco". Yay for lame jokes.

- A group of girls in the front shouted "Bela, du bist so schön!" in perfect unison and Bela said (more or less) "Oh, das ist jetzt eine Überraschung. Naja, danke, ich weiß." Poser. XD After a while the girls shouted "Bela, du bist immer noch schön!" And he replied "Natürlich bin ich immer noch schön, wisst ihr wieviel Botox wir Backstage haben?" And made such a ridiculous grimace that totally deformed his face and said "Every wrinkle was artificially recreated so that it looks authentic!" He also mentioned his "schöner, durchtrainierter Arsch". Poser, poser, poser. But man, it does look pretty well-toned.

- He was wearing a fringe shirt under his black and white jacket. Now please look at this photo I took: am I the only one who thinks of the film "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert"? I could totally see him standing on the roof of a bus singing "I will survive". XD

http://www.doitcomics.net/ljfiles/priscilla_b.jpg

- During the usual "Könnt ihr mich sehen? Könnt ihr mich hören?" he said we couldn't not hear him, because they had spent a lot of money on the audio equipment. He then proceeded to repeat the same question without microphone and of course the crowd screamed again (I could actually hear his voice, he was standing quite close) and he commented "Shit, we spend too much money on it!" XD


All right, I guess that's enough for now, I'll try and get some sleep. Rambling Report(TM) about Leipzig and Berlin as well as photos will be posted soon.
gothikmaus: (Olsen - Yeah baby)
Sooo, hostels in Hamburg and Leipzig: booked. The hostel in Hamburg is just down the street from the venue, a new A&O they opened in June. That's almost as good as the concert in Prague, when the hostel was right above the club. Now I just need to buy train tickets and then I'm all set. I think I may just try to get to Hamburg sharing a Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket. I won't be able to use the faster connections, but it'll be much cheaper. I'll just need to be at the station a bit earlier so I have time to ask around. The idea of people sharing a train ticket with strangers is still so weird to me, but as long as it works...

Aaand, a new Tourtagebuch video. They're taking their time putting those online...



I wonder if their tour manager put blue lights on the bus to prevent them from taking drugs... XD

EDIT: For the first time in my life, I have an Advent calendar with chocolate. :3

Safe and sound zuhause! Oh man, when I'm tired I mix up all my languages. (And when I'm really tired I start to rhyme...)

A rambly report before I go to bed.

Bela B y Los Helmstedt, 13/11/2009, Dresden



>>> Other pictures here.

Bela's concert was so, so, so great. I arrived at the venue around 17:45, der Alte Schlachthof was only 15 minutes on foot from my hostel and on the way there I met a girl who, despite coming from Dresden, had no idea where the venue was and asked me if I knew the way. Well, I did (thanks, Google Maps!), so we started chatting and when I mentioned I come from Milan, she was very surprised and said "Mailand ist ja Italien, oder? Also, du kannst total Italienisch!" Ja, total! XD

The entry was the most relaxed thing ever, because you had to go into a court to get to the door and from around 6 PM the security didn't let anybody in, so we were not even 100 people there when the doors opened, and they let us in very slowly. I didn't even run and ended up in the second row, in a wonderful place just a bit to the left from Bela (I actually prefer that than being right in front of him, because the microphone doesn't get in the way. :P)

Before the show they played various songs, including the Derrick theme and an Italian song from the '50s called "Dracula chachacha". I laughed so much at that! XD

There was a staircase at the centre of the stage and as soon as I saw it, I knew there would be some kitschy vaudeville involved. I wasn't disappointed, as Bela first appeared as a silouette behind a paper curtain, then broke through it and walked down said staircase in perfect Las Vegas style. The band was wearing black and white costumes and, during "Rockula", a Bela mask.

The running gag of the evening was "Mana-mana", Bela started it at some point and then things got out of hand and the audience sang it a couple more times, before moving on to... the Sesame Strasse Song! XD Bela just stood there laughing and said "When we started with Die Ärzte someone said we were childish and now, 25 years later, I'm on stage and my audience sings the Sesame Strasse Song to me..." Priceless! XD

At one point he said something like "Yeah, I'm 10 cm taller now. That is only 4 cm to... what's his name again?" Aww. X3

When they played the intro of "Ninjababypowpow" I thought "Oh, are they playing a Metallica cover now?" I can't help it! The intro totally sounds like Metallica! Apart from the first 4 notes, those sound like Pink Floyd. :P

During Bobotanz they had a big Bela puppet "dancing", it was so, so silly.

There were a lot of encores, 3 or 4, and the very last one was "One night stand", with Paule wearing a pink baby doll and Bela his rhinestone suit and hat. He sang with a retro mike and was very Frank Sinatra like. Oh, another thing. In the middle of the concert Bela picked up the Elvis photo that was standing on his amp, kept it in front of his face and started combing his hand through his hair as if he was looking at himself in the mirror. And he kept posing and making kissing faces for the girls in the front row. Oh, Bela... *shakes head* He pretty much dedicated Traumfrau to the girl standing in front of me, he didn't say anything but kept looking at her with his "flirty face" and threw a pick at her afterwards. By the way, they didn't get a girl from the audience to go on stage during the song, I think that tradition is pretty much over. I still can't believe my luck for being able to dance with him 2 years ago - and I have to thank Wayne for that.

Apropos Wayne, der Neue (aka Gary) doesn't have a microphone. I guess Bela needs to be in the center of the attention, uh? He also glared at Danny a couple of times for messing up or starting too late, I guess it's normal to make mistakes, it was only the second show of the tour. Still, I hope Bela doesn't turn into a stage tyrant, I can still remember when he messed up his guitar parts 3 years ago...

The guy standing to my right was an idiot who kept smoking and arguing with his friend, who was standing in the front row a couple of places to my left, so I was in the middle. Meh. Other than that, a really great show. There was no Autogrammstunde, even if they finished quite early, there was no opening act and at 10:15 everything was over. I didn't manage to get anything to drink though, because, for some reason, the 3 bars in the venue could only sell drinks until 10:30. WTF? Anyway, since it was still relatively early and I didn't feel like going back to the hostel, I stayed there with another dozen people, but in the end nothing happened. Oh well, I hope I'll be luckier next time. It's not like I want another autograph, I'd just like to give Bela a comic book. Hey, it's a tradition!

Also, I said I would buy them, and I did!



With nice instructions on how to use them. XD I also bought a key ring, I didn't really like the T-shirts that much.

And now, I'm going to bed. I'm kinda glad I didn't go to Giessen, I checked and it would've taken me ages to get there from Dresden. Now I just need to think of a very nice way for asking about taking those 3 days off...

Goodnight!
gothikmaus: (OMGWTF!)
As predicted, I've just logged in to say: WHAT THE FUCK, BELA IS SO FUCKING HOT!

Really, it can't only be good genes, it must be either plastic surgery (at least botox) or a deal with the devil.

Now of course I regret not getting a ticket for Giessen today. *headdesk* But the sun is shining and I've never visited Dresden, so I should be busy enough not to think about it too much. And I'm going to Hamburg and Berlin anyway. Maybe I'll ask if I can take those 3 days off, so I can see both Hamburg shows and the Leipzig one as well.

Oh Bela, you turn me into such a stupid, hopeless fangirl...

All right, off to eat something and visit Dresden now!
gothikmaus: (Olsen - Yeah baby)
After trying to install the latest version of Skype for an hour, I could finally talk with my parents and see them. It feels... weird. But I'm gonna see them in person at the end of the month anyway, I'm going back to Milan for a weekend.

And I finally drew a new Los Helmstedt cartoon! Featuring Holly Burnette as well. I don't know if I wanna draw Gary Schmalzl, though... :P

http://www.doitcomics.net/loshelmstedt/bbylh025.html

I must say I'm quite happy with the results... XD

Heh...

Funk was quicker, but I have a Bela+Wayne comic too!

gothikmaus: (Olsen - Yeah baby)
Ugh, today it took me 1 hour and 50 minutes to get to work. And I'm afraid it's going to be like that from now on, because of the summer timetables. Luckily we're going to stay here only until the end of July, then everyone will be moved to another office, which is only 30 minutes from where I live. I can't wait.

Other than that, here's a new Los Helmstedt cartoon:

http://www.doitcomics.net/loshelmstedt/bbylh023.html

It took me ages to add Bela's tattoos, thank goodness there's Photoshop. Also, is it just me or did he turn out extremely emo-looking? Oops.

And last Saturday I got the train tickets for Montreux! I'm so glad they still have a promotion, I paid €58 for a return ticket, the regulare fare would be €98. I also bought Heidi soap bubble solution for 50 cents. I wanted to buy one to bring along (don't ask), and when I saw the bottle with the Heidi picture, I knew I had to get that one. Hey, I'm going to Switzerland after all! (All right, it's not Graubünden, but who cares. :P)
gothikmaus: (Olsen - Yeah baby)
First: I finally drew a new Los Helmstedt cartoon:

http://www.doitcomics.net/loshelmstedt/bbylh022.html

I should've done this at least a month ago, but we all know I'm the queen of procrastination. I really like Olsen's face, by the way. XD

And then a travel meme, as seen in [livejournal.com profile] flaschengeist's LJ.

Foreign countries visited so far, in no particular order:

- Germany: several weeks in Berlin, a few days in Munich, Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Bremen, Nürnberg, Mannheim, Leipzig. Plus a few music festivals.

- Austria: Innsbruck, Kufstein, Salzburg.

- Switzerland: Zürich, Winterthur, Gampel, some town in Tessin (the Italian part of Switzerland) and Graubünden

- USA: New York City, part of New Jersey, Washington DC

- Great Britain: London, Chester, Manchester, Liverpool, part of the Lake District, Brighton, a small town in Wales

- The Netherlands: Amsterdam, Den Haag, Utrecht, Haarlem

- Greece: Rhodes

- Czech Republic: Prague

- Hungary: Budapest

- Liechtenstein: a few hours in Vaduz

- Spain: Barcelona and Sitges

PS I got my hair cut today. Maybe a little too much. My head feels sooo light...
gothikmaus: (Olsen - Yeah baby)
I told my parents about my project of going to Berlin to attend a business German course and do an internship. Of course my mother asked, with fear in her eyes: "And then... are you going to... stay there?" I told her I don't know yet, I mean, I don't know where I'll be in 3 weeks time, how can I know what's gonna happen by the end of the year?

She took it well though, I was expecting exaggerated reactions, tears and stuff like "Nooo! My only daughter wants to move to Germanyyy! D:" Instead she just told me to think it over and take my time. I told her I'm going to wait at least until after the elections in June (who knows, I might even get elected, HAHA) and that, before doing anything, I'll make sure that the place in our town which called me for an interview doesn't want to hire me. It would be quite inconvenient if I moved to another country and then got called for a job that's 10 minutes away from where I live.

In the meantime, here's some eye candy for my LJ friends, who always bear with me and my rants. Remember: I love you. :3

Seekret Graphic Project of Doom is temporary on hiatus. The concert we were trying to organise was cancelled. I had to wake up insanely early both yesterday and today.

At least I drew another comic:

http://www.doitcomics.net/loshelmstedt/bbylh021.html

And now I'm off to the cinema.
gothikmaus: (Olsen - Yeah baby)
Lo and behold the new Los Helmstedt comic!

http://www.doitcomics.net/loshelmstedt/bbylh020.html

A big thank you to Maike for the idea, I changed the dialogues a bit but I hope you like it.

Yesterday I was in a horrible mood (why, yes, I got yet another negative reply, this time from a place in Potsdam), but last night things got much better. I went to the happy hour organised by our candidate's support group and took some photos; after a while my musician friends arrived and I introduced them to the people in charge of organising concerts, hopefully they'll have a chance to play before the summer. After that we went to do some shopping for dinner and ended up doing and impromptu photo-session in the car park of the shopping centre! I took a lot of photos and some came out really nice, I'll let you know when they publish them on their MySpace.

Why can't I do something I like for a living? Or at least something I don't find totally disgusting? *pouts*

I've finally learned how to make decent speech balloons with Photoshop. Long live the pen tool! Hallelujah! :P

The New Year wishes I've just got pretty much saved the whole year. For realz. Unexpected things are always the best. ♥

And now, before I go out (booh, I'll have to drive in the snow), the last Los Helmstedt cartoon of the year:

HAPPY NEW YEAR, PEOPLE! And remember: I LOVE YOU! You're among the few things that keep me sane.

Well, today wasn't completely wasted: I did one Christmas card (oh God, still five to go) and finished the Los Helmstedt cartoon that I sketched days ago:

Hehehe. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] darth_funk for the suggestions.

Tomorrow a few friends are coming over and we're making a banner for the first concert of some friends of ours. Go listen to them! Deluded by lesbians @ MySpace! GO!

I should work on more Christmas cards, but I will probably go to sleep. Meh. Thank God tomorrow's a holiday.

EDIT: OMFG BELA!!!
