You don’t want to miss the debut performance by Opera Arcana – featuring the legendary G.B. Jones (Fifth Column), who hasn’t been on stage for more than 10 years, Minus Smile (Kids on TV) and Julie Faught (The Pining).
When we asked Minus Smile back in spring to perform at Hotnuts, we never thought that would turn into such a super group. Tomorrow, make sure to check this post again for the wonderful, dreamy video of Opera Arcana’s song The Raven.

When Mary, Toffi and myself saw This Is It in Berlin we were very hungover. We had set up Girlscamp near Alexanderplatz. The cinema was just around the corner. Toffi had not slept the night before because Mary and I did not hear him ring the doorbell from 6 to 8am. Or maybe he sat in front of the wrong door, ringing the wrong bell.
After we sat through the boring trailers, I woke Toffi up: “This Is It. This is the moment.”
“I say that because of love. L. o. v. e.” Michael would say after requesting changes from the dancers or the musical director.
The King of Pop, during a very emotional scene with all dancers and musicians on stage, said that we have 4 years to save the planet. We were with him in a heartbeat. I mean what does Madonna know anyways, who thought we only had 4 Minutes to save the world?
Michael’s outfits were amazing. OK, maybe minus the Ed Hardy pants he wore at one point.
MJ’s stylist for the This Is It concerts was Serbian born Rushka Bergman, who first met when she styled him in Dior Homme for the October 2007 issue of Italian Vogue L’Uomo. For Micheal’s look for the shows, Bergman collaborated with Christophe Decarnin for Balmain, John Galliano, Kris Van Assche for Dior Homme and Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy.
“Das ist Bauhaus.” said the lady when I put the vase in front of her at the cash register of the KPM store. I have had an eye or two on this piece of porcelain for ages.
The Vase Halle was designed in 1931 by Marguerite Friedlaender. Ms Friedlaender had gotten her Bauhaus Master Potter designation in 1926, when left the school, and moved to, you guessed it, Halle.
I recommend to put another favourite product of mine on the vase: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic’s Lip Tar. Looks extra good in hot pink (they call it anime). You do not only want to drink out of the vase – you want to lick it all day.
It’s limited. It’s available in pink. It’s an elephant.
That’s why it is instantly in the top 5 of my wish list. The Eames Elephant.
The Eameses initially designed an elephant out of molded plywood in the 40ties but never put it into production. Only two original prototypes were made. Now available for the first time, the Vitra produced polypropylene version of the elephant is in the style of the Eames molded plastic seating.
I read some where that each color is limited to 1000 trunks, but I can’t seem to find it anymore. The elephants are so cute, even kids seem to like them and ride them in nature, see picture below. So versatile, I need one.
One of the highlights of the Live Film! Jack Smith! festival of the arsenal cinema in Berlin was seeing and meeting legendary underground superstar Mario Montez, who had not appeared in public for 30 years. Mario started his career with the Jack Smith films Flaming Creatures (as Dolores Flores) and Normal Love before becoming one of he first Warhol superstars.
With Jack Smith, he shared a fascination of 1950’s/60’s gay camp icon Maria Montez, who became the source of inspiration for Mario’s drag name.

Eat Me. Eat Me. Eat Me.
My friends at omgblog report that this is one of three new singles to come out over the next months through online distributor AWAL. Orally Fixated will soon be available from The Guardian for free for a limited time. Can’t wait for remixes.
Sunday, last party night in Berlin at Berghain Kantine. ND’s birthday with a very special tequila bar by Conny and Zu from Amsterdam. After having been to crazy parties for 3 nights before, Sunday was almost impossible… But the tequila brought back our energy.
Monday morning was also the end of Girlscamp Berlin. Mary Messhausen, Toffi, Prancey Girl and myself had rented an apartment together. More on that later. For now, enjoy the pictures below, more after the jump. Even more on flickr.
