Hair day

Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges,
but eventually you find a hair stylist you like.
Today, I finally
got some time to go to the Hairdresser again and because it
was so overdue I made 2 appointments.

First my trusted hair surgeon Vidal Sassoon who´s been through
better and worse with me, to get back to my original colour

then a cutting specialist, my friend Sven recommended me,
who could well become a new hair affair since it is pretty
close by and a lovely team of young stylists; Haartari.

As I arrived 30min early I spend my time waiting looking through
Sassoon´s history of styles, thinking of a lovely quote by

Alexander Pope
: " Beauty draws us with a single hair."

Thursday night

Great film, nice evening....

Nightshift lover

Most people who know me are aware of the fact, that I am a night owl.
Not only that I find it extremely hard to fall asleep before 1am, but
also the fact that I work best from 10pm-4am keeps me up most nights.

Although most people depreciate this practice as time wasting lazyness
I must point out, that there are many advantages to working during the

– Less distractions
No-one calls, texts or emails me, no lovely weather making me want to
enjoy an ice cream in the sun, no appointment pressure, soon closing
supermarkets or tv-shows....

– Quiet time

As my neighbours already tend to bang on the walls if I just laugh after
11pm, there will be less music and more general quiteness to concentrate
on things to do.

I can take care of all the ideas and pictures I collected throughout the
day, before new input comes up.
I love reading blogs and after 1am
most people have written their post.

So if you are also a late night worker, don´t feel bad about waking up at
11am the next day!
After all, night times are not only good for sleeping,
but also great for another thing I love:

yes right....origami

The good, the bad and the evil

Sometimes I wish I had been into collecting vinyl as much
as into sneakers, as as an asthetic junkie I have always
been facinated by good record covers.
Since I pursued my dream of becoming a photographer,
shooting pictures for record covers was an ultimate goal
of mine. The pictures on jazz albums or Grace Jones
records formed my interest in graphic design and there
seems to be an endless list of good examles alike.

But then, there is also a whole other side to this:

Usually religious music (unless it´s classical) isn´t really
my cup of tea anyway, but these seem to come from a
much darker and more twisted place than hell...

My absolute favourite and winner of the scariest cover
since the invention shellack definetly is:
