Hilda Art 04


Rock’n Roll!

Hildas erstes Graffiti (Oder “Streetart”, wenn ihr jünger als 30 seid)

Mit Pappas Markern auf die Tapete!
Ich glaube, das sollte der Maulwurf sein. Den wollte sie immer von ihrem Bett aus sehen können.

Hilda, (“Maulwurf”), 04. September 2009

Hilda’s first Graffiti, or streetart if you are under the age of 30.




This morning a song appeared in the radio and my entire Family sang enthusiastically! Including me!

It’s a classic from a past where chansons werent “pimped” with Synthies and Beatboxes. But that’s not the point here. I discovered the Song in the Film “oss 117 Cairo Nest of Spies” with Jean Dujardin (the Name!!!). Possibly the best James Bond Parody ever! In fact, I think this is actually the best Bond-Film in the last 20 Years! But wait, this isn’t a Bond parody at all!

OSS117 was invented before Bond and also had his own Cinema-series.

But i’m getting off track again. My favorite film-agent is Lemmy Caution by the way.

The film-parody is based on the Algerian singer Lili Boniche’s Version. It is said, that the original version is from Mario Marini, but I’m not shure about that. In those times one Hit spread over the World in one Million Versions.

I also have a Version for all you Campers out there. A real Gem from Dalida, an italian girl raised in? Yes Cairo!

Hope to gave you a nice earwig! (I hope this is understandable in english! means catchy song)

Arcades are Art


When i fell in Love and became part of the installation “A Few Free Years”, 1998 of Jason Rhoades 2007 in the “Hamburger Bahnhof” in Berlin, it became the summer of my life! When other people where busy bathing in the sun i tried my very best to use my last chance to improve my personal highscores on the original machines. I felt like we (a  korean guy and a dark-haired girl who where there quite as often as me) were the people this installment was ment to be.  Well chosen machines in there. While stated in the catalog as machines only from the Year 1976, this is arrogant bullshit! splendid Classics like Pong(not working), Defender, Centipide, Burgertime, Robotron, Terminator2, Galaxians, Galaga, Space invaders, Star wars, and of course Pacman and Donkeykong! Simply put: My paradise! But anyway, that’s History.

Oh, BTW my personal Robotron-highscore:

Why I write this is the fact is that i found another artist (team) that deals in the arcade-buisnes. From Faile and Bast deluxx Fluxx Arcade in the Lazarides Galary, 8 GREEK STREET – W1D 4DG FEB. 12TH – MAR. 27TH – 2010 in London. This time there are no classics technically on-screen, because the artist made up their own streetart-pseudo-mockup-games. But that’s ok. While not being on such a high level as the work of Jason Rhoades in my personal opinion, I still have to give those guys Credits for their really nice, punky streetartdesign of the modded Chassis. And please visit their Homepage to see/download all the details. I would love to have this “dungeon” somewhere in my flat!

My new Hobby


I have a new Hobby!

It’s: checking the air for Wlans/wifi to see whats their name! It’s totaly awesome!I got an ipod touch lately and i’m so amazed about the wifi-feature of this thing. I constantly walk arround checking for wifis and see their name. I am addicted to this already! It’s a wonder i am still alive and didn’t get hit by a truck or something!

This is some sort of virtual graffiti or wifi-lan-poetry. Realy! I am amazed how much creativity and effort people put in this matter. In my barrio:

  • Die Looser
  • Hal 9000
  • werdasliestistdoof (who reads this is an idiot) – a real classic!
  • nasensprayjunkie (nosesprayjunky)
  • charlesmansonfamilyserver
  • crashtestserver
  • brucelee
  • ökoschlampe (?)
  • gadafi
  • matrix (gähn! moahn!)
  • Marius_rockt
  • Leonardo Davinchi (a pizzarestaurant!)

And whats more fun: To think why and how they ever had chosen this name. What kind of people call their station: “Popelhöhle”(snot-cavern)?

And even more fun to see how people interact or you can actually say “slowchat” via their wlans! A week ago some guy called his station: “Fc bayern“. Then, after a view days, some guy called his wifistation:”lederhosenhasser” (leathertrousers-hater) then the first guy changed the name to:”LHH-hasser” next day: some wlan called “Herta bsc” (another soccer-club) apeared. Now the first two changed to “herta go home” and “Herta-hasser“. Issn’t that great?

In my neighbourhood there is one called “Schatzinsel” and the other “Long John Silver”

Also some realy funny examples for funny Wlan-names: (my favourite is “we can hear you having sex” ^_^),700993/Galerie-Die-schraegsten-und-abgefahrensten-WLAN-Namen/Fun/News/

As much as i enjoy the others names i am too lazy to think of a good one for myself. So ours still got a name like Alice4 8 15 16 23 42. Some neighbor also wasnt too much into choosing funny names and just sticks to “horst_kaulap_lan”. Come on!

Brandenburger Turret?

Zugegeben erst dachte ich, das ganze sei eine Optik, hervorgerufen durch allzu euphorischem Alkoholkonsum (siehe unten), doch dann machte ich sicherheitshalber ein Foto und bitte:
Was dachten die sich dabei?
Ist dem Grafiker kurz vor dem Druck ne Spline spazieren gegangen?
Wenn die schon ihre Karren nicht in Schuss halten können, so dass wir die nächsten 6 Jahre oder so gezwungen sind chaotische Abfahrtszeiten hinzunehmen. Können die nicht mal einen Prüfandruck machen?
…und wofür nochmal haben wir die jährlichen Kartenpreiserhöhungen hingenommen?
Tz! Idioten!My first thought had been, the whole thing must be an optical illusion, caused by all too euphoric consumption of alcohol (see below), but then I made a photo for safety’s sake and ask now:
What where they thinking?
Is this the way they want to present their city’s idol and their company as a whole? Are they for real?
All citicens suffer from shedule-relais and far too little trains and therefore longer waitingtimes. What’s the point asking for more fare every Year? They are simply put greedy as f**k!

Hilda Art 05


Frisch out-of-the-Markers:

Hilda hat im Musikladen angefangen etwas zu zeichnen, und musste es unbedingt zu ende zeichnen, als sie wieder zu Hause war. Ich sollte zusehen. Einer meiner Marker kam auch wieder zum Einsatz (Ich muss die Dinger endlich in einem Tresor aufbewaren!).
Ob das Bild etwas über die vorher gehörte Musik aussagt? Sieht in meinen Augen jedenfalls nicht nach “Broadway Boogie Woogie” aus. Mir egal, ich finde das Bild sehr gut!

Kreativ mit Nachwuchs


Meine Tochter und ich haben ein Villa Kunterbuntspielzeug gebastelt!

Hilda Art 03


Und wieder mal ein Bild!

Hilda liebt zu der Zeit Orang Utan. Immer muss Sie davon Bilder sehen.
Also soll Pappa einen malen. Na gut. Hilda sieht das Bild nicht als fertig an.
Macht des Janze noch perfekt!
