Romeo & Juliet


Went to see Romeo & Juliet at the Playhouse Theatre in London with some university buddies. Sadly Miss M could not attend...

Anyway...the first 20 min were awesome with speed, humour and interactivity with the audience. Slowly we got into the story itself, which did not have any surpriding moments in it. The surprise came from the the part of the visuals theatre. Circus, acrobatics, hanging from the curtains etc. End of the play was beautiful, dramatic and perfect as the Romeo died hanging from hid feets upside down. Overall the play had much similarities with the Hollywood remake starring Leonardo Di'Caprio.

Losing The Control


These times are changing me. Suddenly good, relaxed life plunges into this whirlpool of London life. Last 6 months saw a lot of work done on music management, but it all shattered afterall. Velcra is past life. Maybe music is not my thing after all. I think I need to change what I'm doing and find new people to practise with.

As a combination of this I feel emotionally drained. I see myself standing on a cliff feeling the open future ahead. But first I need to climb down this hazardous rock wall down to the abyss. There will I find the next level. All I am waiting is the sign to start climbing down. A sign that secures my ascention. A sign to lose control.

Did some drawings....damn they became weird. I cannot even start to tell you what was going on in my head during that time.

The Day Of The Death


Days here in London been easy. One thing I have wanted is to have a bit of the movie life. Drama, sex, drugs and violence. Well...seems that this summer I'm getting my share of it.

A month ago I got beaten up, mugged in other words. Today I walked past the death 5min before it unleashed its power. A guy was shot on the street in front of me, just 100m from where I live. It was movie style execution, car stopping in front a motorcycle. Two guys came out, 4 times this poor motorcycle fellow took a bullet and parted this world.

Seemed that the shooting was somehow gang related. Who knows. I'm shitting my pants anyway.

Identity Is A New Concept


For any people to try to pin down their identity as though it is a captive butterfly is simply wrong: People are able to have more than one identity and the fact we're returning to trying to limit ourselves to one identity is a sign of a growing insecurity and uncertainty.

Mugging and a nightmare


Two weeks ago I was mugged. I was coming home from a bar, while I was approached by a pair guys, offering skunk. Me being drunk and tired said: "yeah, but not from you"...great...a mental note: next time keep your mouth shut and just walk away.

Also, the other day I think I ate something wrong. I collapsed for the whole night, day and the next day. Kinda spent the day in this weird world of sickness. But I feel like a different person now. Something growing inside...

Rhythm of London

Log + London

Falafel coming up at London Bridge. This is good. Weird but good. Went to see London Philharmonics with Steffi, which was a great night eventually.

I am finally getting into the rhythm of London life, feeling it and being able to speak better. My tutor said I'm the spirit and life of the class. Whatever she meant with that. Next weeks I'm in London for some rehearsals and then a month tour in Germany in a huge bus! Looking forward to it. First stop Hamburg.

However, there is one thing I've learned about London and getting a girl. Like Scarface says:

"In this country you need to have money. With money, you can get power. With power, you can get a woman".

38.000 feets over Copehagen

Log + Travel

Studio Sessions for the second album of Velcra over. Learned a lot I must say (now editing this in 2007, I must say I really did). November saw a crazy UK tour, these two busy weeks behind now, March will include 2 showcases in London and April will see a tour in Germany. Getting good marks at Uni. Looking good.
