"Minas Morgul: Nostalgia" by Stephan Riess - live at GemJam'93

The first track from Stephan's segment of our performance at the 1993 GemJam festival in Sinzig.

DJ Ottic: "Public Extacy" - live at Gemjam '93

The opening Act for the GemJam festival back in 1993:

DJ Ottic with the, back then, somewhat new DJing technique, of using two Commodore Amiga computers and the soundtracker, creating tracks completely loops from sampled loops.

The bloke without a baseball cap is me improvising some additional riffs on an old Roland Juno - sometimes it even works... :)

This is the first in a series of upcoming videos - I just captured the old tape on which we recorded this track here as well as the upcoming tunes, who are a mix of works by Stephan Riess, DJ Ottic and myself that we arranged and practised solely for this gig using my home studio Equippment.

There will be pretentiousness and material that, in hindsight, is a little embarassing - but some imo pretty cool tunes too.

If you like the music you can download the complete gig for free here:

Terry Pratchett's "Guards! Guards!" live with John Rhys-Davies!


This is a live performance of "Guards! Guards!" by Terry Pratchett, one of my favourite Discworld novels. It has been adapted for audio by David Benedict and got performed live at Dragon*Con 2001 by the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company.

Featuring John Rhys-Davies as Lupine Wonse.

Enjoy! :)

Parts 4-5 right here, after the break! :)

Envyyyyyyayeah, Motherfuckers!

While I don't *hate* the US of A like some people nowadays I guess it's no secret (at least to some of the folks I talk with from time to time) that I'm not really planning ever to *live* there. You see - it's way too big for me and when you're not getting shot at by gangster rappers in one of the cities chances are that, instead, you're just getting lost in some redneck backwaters and about to be captured, tortured, cooked with bbq sauce and then eaten by a family of genetically degenerated radioactive cannibals.

That has got to be true, why else would there be so many documentaries about this topic?

Where was I? Ah, yes - I never want to live there, so usually I'm not envious of those who do so. Except, I have to admit, when there's the chance to see the worst movie in the world by Edward Wood in FUCKING COLOUR (!!!1!).
