Week 12

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Good things happened! I got my new keyboard, which I still think is awesome. And in the evening I taped a new episode of “Draußen nur Schnittchen”, the podcast where Jan Manuel tells me about online dating. It’s pretty funny and if you understand German, you should give it a try.

I bought a ticket to go see Die Antwoord live in Cologne in June. That should be pretty interesting.

I bought and watched the Aziz Ansari comedy special “Dangerously Delicious” – it’s funny and I really like that the idea of “Give me five dollars, here is the video file, no DRM or any other fuckery” that Louis CK made popular seems to work out for comedians.

In the evening I taped a new episode of The Knutsens – we talk about honks1 and get sidetracked by Draw Something.

I was able to work from home that day, which is a very good thing – I actually got to see some of that glorious blue sky that everybody is talking about and didn’t have to spend roughly four hours sitting in a traffic jam.
In the evening I picked up my sister and her boyfriend from the airport, they’re visiting me for a week.

Nipples! and a small revolution.

I went to Takumi with Madlen and Markus and they liked it so much they went again on sunday.

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Had some relaxed hanging out at the Düsseldorf Altstadt in the evening.

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Watched the F1 qualifying and had a nice, sunny, relaxed day in Cologne. Thumbs up.

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

F1, again. Madlen and Markus went to the horse races, which is of no particular interest for me, so instead I drove all the way to Bonn to attend Jan Manuel’s barbecue garden party. That was rather fun and I had a good time. Again: thumbs up.

Thumbs up in particular this week: the weather. Sunshine all week. Warm temperatures. I approve of this.

Podcasts

Falls es irgendjemand, der hier mitliest, noch nicht mitbekommen haben sollte:
Seit ein paar Wochen podcaste ich mehr oder weniger wild durch die Gegend.

Ich co-moderiere zwei Podcasts:

The Knutsens

Bei The Knutsens unterhalten sich Teymur und ich über das, was uns die letzte Woche so beschäftigt hat. Da wir beide durchaus mit “Geek” zu umschreiben sind, sind das oftmals sehr geekige Themen.
Wir nehmen das jede Woche jeweils Dienstags auf und selbstverständlich gibt es The Knutsens auch in iTunes, auf Twitter und auf Facebook.

Draußen nur Schnittchen

Jan Manuel erzählt mir alle zwei Wochen, was ich so über das Online-Dating wissen sollte. Das ist höchst inter- und amüsant.
Draußen nur Schnittchen gibt es auch in iTunes, auf Twitter und auf Facebook – und die nächste Folge werden wir am Montag, den 19. März um 19:30 auch live streamen.
