Last year, I did a quite nice but spectacularily unsuccessful competition for a new embassy building in Sudan. I had the XMAS 1.5 roughmix with me and played it over and over again on the office’s stereo. At last, my colleague was wondering, what was going on.
So I told her. And to take away the mys(t)ery, this is year,
I tell you all:
Oh Well. The Prince now flatshares with The King and his son-in-law in Jackson Hole, WY.
Let’s Rock’n’Roll – Fuck, yes.
(And it reminds me of my encounter with a school of dolphins off the Mexican coast.
Boy, they were talking a lot.)
We held a karaoke night at my appartment.
The neighbours complained soon (I do have a rather high tessitura). The next night our new house-warming student neighbours were expelled from their appartment by the police and moved collectively through the streets while chanting “If you like Pina Collada“.
I felt both, prideful & embarrased.
You might think
The Cars have been a cool band all along.
I binge-watched the new CBS series BrainDead which might explain. After downloading from itunes my son came in and chanted along the music (it’s in the credits of Cars II).

Since a couple of years now, there has been an online betting game with colleagues and friends.
Introducing a special WhatsApp group this time, a good friend of mine accidentially posted Salat & Kuchen.

Awestruck, I hold this in highest esteem.
Christmas in Oaxaca.
Well, our German christmas songs seemed a bit out of place.
BUY THIS CD.
(disclosure: my brother-in-law made the cover)
Oaxaca Rincon Colonial
We did a tour in a tourist bus in Oaxaca.
They played and sold the music on board.
This year’s 2nd brass feature.
Although I usually detest brass-bands this one is great.
Peace on Earth
So Mr. Jones died, too.
I’m particularily fond of his hairstyle on this duett with a butler who looks like a retired 007. He was quite funny, too.
Still, I might have to check him out of the itunes random playlist.
