Tobago's Sunday School Girls

Wining dance battle

With no doubt these three girls from Crown Point are the hottest of the night.

On the last sunday in September I went to "Buccoo Sunday School" in Tobago. This event slowly starts around nine, pleasing tourists with some cheasy steel pan covers of Love Boat tunes. Once the tourists are gone, Tobago's youth is taking over. Dressed up like in a music video clip of Charly Black and J. Capri, the ladies show what their mama gave them. Around 3am the party is at it's peak: in a dance battle the girls show who the boss in terms of wining is. In the video above you see little Tanja ending the battle with a brutal move onto the back of her blond rival. And to give an idea about the looks of Tobago's Sunday School girls I took some mobile phone snaps in the ladies restroom.

Allesreporter Woodkid

Ich habe ganz vergessen meinen mittlerweile dritten Fernsehbericht über den Alleskönner Yoann Lemoine aka Woodkid zu posten. Leider ist der Metropolis Beitrag vom 13.04.13, in dem ich mich auf die Frage nach Pathos und Kitsch konzentriert habe, nicht mehr online. Zu sehen ist noch unser Livemitschnitt von "I love You".

When someone starts a Tumblr blog about Berlin

... someone else starts a Tumblr blog to kick their ass. When You Really Live in Berlin is another point of view on Berlin and the answer to the expat gif Tumblr When You Live in Berlin.

Sober Spring Breaker

When I heard that Harmony Korine is releasing a new movie, I was really looking forward to finally meet the director and screen writer of one of my favorite all time movies Gummo. When I planned my TV shoot I had a mix between the mask wearing freak of his last film Trash Humpers and the drunk Harmony in my mind, that I saw in Gummo. When I finally got to meet him, I was surprised and disappointed about how much this man had changed. The fact that he seems not to take any more drugs is good, because he would probably be dead right now, if he would have continued how he did while writing Kids and Gummo. But he was so square, that he didn´t even want to stay in a Bar for more than two minutes because two people were smoking inside. So I had to change my complete shooting concept from a documentary style bar/Döner tour into just a normal seated interview and EPK material. The result is a tipical TV report that shows exactly what he wants: Him, the "used to be crazy director" as a serious grown up, who now is doing his first steps into mainstream cinema. Congratulations.

New American underground music in films

The film crews from "New American Noise" project present the heads behind American underground music today. The beautifully shot ten minute long episodes feature artists such as Mykki Blanco (New York), Deastro (Detroit), Trinidad James (Atlanta), Sissy Nobby (New Orleans) and Sundaze (Portland). So far my favorite film is the New Orleans episode about bounce music and it´s never stopping booty shaking. The only thing I am missing, is that there is not enough music to listen to in one go. I guess I have to go and search online for music video clips of the artists now.
