What is your favorite city

Hamburg

Ich lebe seit 1986 in Hamburg. Das Wetter ist immer scheisse. Die Architektur ist der pure Horror. Alles Alte und Schöne wird zerstört und dafür wird neuer Designmüll angebaut. Es gibt kaum Unterstützung für Kultur von unten. Die Strassen und Plätze sind kalt und tot. Neuerdings trinken alle ihre beknackten Lattes nur noch «to go». Ich hasse diese Stadt.

favorite band hailing from the city?

Dackelblut

favorite building?

Golden Pudel Klub. Selbst gebaut.

favorite club?

Ich verachte Sportclubs. Sportclubs sind wie Kirchen, sie formatieren das Bewusstsein, weg von den Problemen über die wir nachdenken sollten.

best day of the week in the city?

Donnerstag, wach genug für echte Action, aber ein Tag bevor die Idioten mit ihren schlimmen Autos und den Waffen nach St. Pauli kommen.

what should one eat when in the city?

Hamburger

where was your first flat?

Kampstrasse 6. Hab ich seit 1986. Hab ich mir grade wieder neu fertig gemacht.

where do you kiss the last time (or where would you like to)?

Auf der Strasse, am Hafen, bei den grossen Pötten, vor dem Golden Pudel Klub.

Fatih Akin Filme.
