The Tuesday's Knitting Question - week 26/2006

Where are you at the moment? Do you answer the question at home, at work or are you on vacation?

At home in the office.
The question was asked by the Wollschaf.

The birthday socks

for my friend's son are finished.

Made Of Opal sockyarn which I received from my wool-fairy
The pattern would not have been necessary, you can't see it anyhow.
I think the colour fits to the birthday boy and I like the socks, too.
Next week my son and I are invited to the birthday party and I'm going to help my friend to cope with the little twelve (!) male guests.

Last weekend

we have been on Juist therefor I still have a delay in everything.
Juist is wonderful, such a perfect white beach.

So I did not have the time to praise my wool-fairy and my wool-princess. They are both very nice. I'm really lucky - when I'm thinking of my one skein pal anyhow.
So I'm waving in the round wishing you all a relaxed weekend.


Apoptygma Berzerk

Who loves Depeche Mode is surely a friend of Apoptygma Berzerk.
Two weeks ago Oz had the chance to meet Stefan Groth, Apop's mastermind, in Paderborn and he could ask him a few questions.
When you are interested in the interview you should have a look >>>here<<<<.
At the moment only in english, during the next days we will add more sounds and a german translation.

My first one skein secret pal exchange

package arrived on Monday.

My pal must be crazy. Lovingly wrapped there was one skein of green Kidsilk Haze in the colour 'Jelly'. Wonderful soft. A wool that has to be admired. Actually you should only receive one skein, but my pal suffered from a intoxication of green colours. :) Cooling gel for the eyes, bathing balls for the feet, wild garlic and chocolate, which has already been eaten.
It's a wonderful package, my dear pal. Many, many thanks!


Self Portrait Tuesday

Today on a Thursday. Yesterday evening I met my two friends A. and A. in a restaurant. It wasn't a good choice. Because of the soccer-championship it was very empty. And the host obviously thought that we would save the day. They looked quite angrily when we 'only' ordered pizza and salad. Very stupid and very impolite.
But we had a nice chat anyhow.

On the photo you can see A. and me and A. .

The Tuesday's Knitting Question - week 25/2006

What do you do during the summer when it is hot. Do you put away the knitting until fall?

No, I'm knitting steadily. The time for knitting is reduced anyway, as you are more outside and on the way during the summer. Sitting in the garden and knitting can be very nice.
The question was asked by the Wollschaf.

The Tuesday's Knitting Question - week 24/2006

What are your men doing when you are knitting? Do they have a hobby as well?

Well, there are two possibilities.
Either the Oz is sleeping or he is working on our music blogs.
That's fine as it can be easily combined with knitting.
When we are surging for new music for the Aspirant I'm knitting. When we are sitting in the Chartbreaker conference I'm knitting, too. Since yesterday we have got the Beatfinder, there will surely be the possibility for knitting as well.


Self Portrait Tuesday

Last Wednesday at the concert. The red spots of the lightshow before Korn appeared on stage.

Saturday, June 10, 2006


Yes, I made it. I survived the Korn concert.

Korn - it was really heavy. And it was not only Korn at all.
Flyleaf with a very capricious singer was quite good.

Hatebreed made the the audience wild but was too loud for my tiny ears. And the sound was too equable.

And the sound-technique of the Bullets was really bad. There was no Light show, so it seemed to be a little narcotic. In autumn they will be back in Germany. Hope the sound will be better then.

When the microphone rack entered the stage the audience was electrified. And even more when it was exposed.

And then Korn appeared - at 23 h! - on stage. Loud and powerful. The basses made the stomach vibrate. The sound - a mixture of metal and HipHop - what is it? In any case unique. Bizarre, stamping shaman music. Coool.

With bagpipes:

Past midnight the concert was over. And the Oz and I staggered home through the Gruga

The socks

in the ajourpattern are finished. Made of a really purple sock yarn I bought at ebay a while ago.

The pattern was not that difficult. You can find it >>>here<<<.
The knitting was fun; the socks are a present. As they are thick, they will surely be used on the sofa. Therefore I thought I could pimp them up a little. For example, with a crochet butterfly, or a frog, or a fairy - somthing like that. I still have to think about it.
The next project will be some socks for a friend's son who will have birthday this month. I can write this down because he is still too small for reading. *hehe* And I don't think that it will be a great pleasure for him to receive socks. Nevermind, I found a victim, he will have to stand it.
Uahh, this evening there will be the Korn concert, I will have to stand this, too.

Self Portrait Tuesday

Sometimes it's an advantage to live in megalopolis.
For example, if you have to buy some special music gadgets for Oz you only have to go to the next big city. You will find it somewhere in the area.
So today I was on my way between Essen and Dortmund in the brigth sunshine.

Uh, the speed of 80 km/h on the freeeway makes you sleepy. You can do nothing except of driving. What a waste of time. But you can have a look around. And I asked myself how an foreigner would see our cities. It's not a grey wasteland - everything is green so that even the potholes and the old buildings seem to be picutresque. If that's the same for foreign eyes?

still loves us.
Together with her world tour she spoils us with a remix of 'Hung Up'*klick*. The song does not convince me totally but for a fan it's a fine goodie. (Huhu, Eva!)
Found via Tonspion.
And Pink even comes to Cologne for receiving the golden record and she gives a small concert in a club. That's correct.

Last Wednesday we have been to the Rosenstolz concert in the Grugahalle. Unfortunately I only had my mobile phone to take some pictures, the photos are not that good.

It was great. Even the Oz survived. :)
The band knew how to handle with the audience. Most of the songs were assisted by the crowd.

The show took 2 1/2 hours - respect. The audience was a wild mix of singing punks, families with their children and the generation 50+ - funny.
That will surely be different next week at the Korn concert. Yesterday I exercised with watching Korn live on MTV - Rock am Ring. And I was surprised that it was not as bad as imagined. But it will be different standig in a big hall surrounded by the sound.
