It’s Not about the Nail

To be honest, I don’t really know what to think about this nail video. But I am sure it is well done…

“Sende dein Licht” – Mattheiser Pfingstkonzert

Sehr schönes Pfingstkonzert mit dem Friedrich-Spee-Chor und Leonie Klein am Marimbaphon unter der Leitung von Sebastian Glas in der Benediktinerabtei St. Matthias in Trier.

Sende dein Licht - Pfingstkonzert in der Benediktinerabtei St. Matthias, Trier

Der Applaus für die Marimbaphonistin am Ende bezeigte wohl, dass das “Außergewöhnliche” (Abt Ignatius in der Vorrede) heute, auch in Konzerten in Kirchen, erwünscht und erhofft ist. Hier hatte ich ja bereits das Programm eines noch krasseren Beispiels aus dem österlichen Riga gepostet. Ja, es kommt an: Modernes Zeug, andere Instrumente, Experimentelles. Ich zumindest will mehr davon.

Giana Sisters or It’s My life

Is there any kind of similarity between the old game score of The Great Giana Sisters and this year’s Romanian contribution to the ESC, or is there none? I do not know.

“Space Oddity” / Chris Hadfield

This music video by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield made my day today. Beautiful.

Surprisingly, they played half of in on German television today (3sat Kulturzeit), but unfortunately cut to the news before Hadfield could play his guitar–in space! (Just imagine! Yay! If you watch it, wait for it! Wait for it!) Comments on Youtube are worth reading. Many people, and rightly so, see Hadfield as their modern idol/hero. Some gleam of hope in my cultural pessimistic world view (cf. Justin Bieber, another Canadian).
