Studio up and *running*. :)


Switzerland. Land of mountains, cuckoo-clocks, cheese with holes in it and the Origin of Yello. Even if you not know their name - if you were around in the 80s and watched some teenager comedy, chances are good you know at least their tune "Oh yeah!"... :)

Found this BBC docu from 1989 about them on youtube that might interest some of you as well, no matter if you're an old fan or if their music is actually news for you - I strongly advice to check them out! Meyer and Blank can teach any young newcomer a thing or two about being really cool! :)

A definition of "Slash" fanfiction by Neil Gaiman

Slash fiction... I heard about it first years ago, but the people who told me about it and who were admitting to be friends of the genre at the same time were actually pretty reluctant to point me into the direction of, like, their favourite "slash story". Today I am a little wiser of course, and I guess it's a bit like the difference between admitting one reads porn from time to time and slapping one's favourite issue of "Donkeyassrape Magazine" on the coffetable when friends are there... ^^

Busy, busy...

The amazing Movie Countdown

Sometimes, actually quite often, you find stuff on youtube that just steals away from your time.

And then, sometimes, you find a movie clip that has something amazing about it... Like THIS one: Living proof that movie buffs with WAY too much time on their hands can be creative like hell:

Vote for "Trance"

Brielmusik News: I joined a little contest on myspace - if you like go over there and vote for your favourite track - preferably mine, of course. ;)

Ok, the link leads directly to the tune now, you only got to rate it. (Oh, and you need to have a myspace account to do so).

Writers beware: The 20 worst agents list

I learned about this list from Neil Gaiman's page (remember - he's my second favourite author in the world - hope he isn't offended for not making No.1) and decided to post about it in my blog for several reasons:

Ok, I know I'm not a writer, only a wee little blogger but things like the list posted below defenitely are important for new authors looking for a publisher/agent for their work. Because - as in every other business - there's scammers out there that like to take advantage of newcomers who don't know about how the business works. So even though I'm not a novelist myself (and never plan to be one) and this ain't a literature webpage/blog I'll link to the list anyways, because the more people learn about it the bigger the chance that an upcoming author learns of it and avoids getting into contact with those scammers in the first place.

Kraftwerk: The *bleep*

This one just to show you that even the grandfathers of electropop had only *bleep* on their mind:
