[Previous entry: "a new career in a new town."] [Main Index] [Next entry: ""]
Hello from Berlin! I'm all settled in. I have a beautiful apartment in Prenzlauer Berg that costs a third of what I was paying in Brooklyn, and I have an amazing view of the East German planetarium from my bedroom window. Looking out at the massive silver orb makes me feel like I'm living in some retro-futuristic sci-fi flick. I already have my first assignment for the paper; I'm going to be interviewing Chelonis R. Jones from Berlin's mighty Get Physical record label. Chelonis! From Get Physical! Holy shit! "I Don't Know"! "One and One"! I'm not really awake--I didn't sleep much on the plane from New York and I was stranded in Brussels for a few hours waiting for a connection, all in the raw early hours of morning. After passing out for a few hours in my new room, I realized this: I am not in New York anymore. It took a little while for this to sink in.
I think I am going to go to Ostgut this weekend.
And here's a new music blog with lots of people I know in it: Beat Research. I hope they ask me to contribute!
Photos on the way.
