Arbeit Nervt

One of my favourite German bands, Deichkind is returning with a new album in October. The record and first single are called Arbeit Nervt (Work Sucks). DikeKid are hailing from Hamburg and started out as a Hip-Hop combo before venturing to their current, more electro based sound.

With their new single Deichkind are again on the border of hick-ness (Prolltum) and party alarm.

The video for Arbeit Nervt is by Alex and Liane, who worked with Bloc Party, The Ting Tings and also did the excellent Deichkind video for Ich betäube mich (I’m narcotizing myself)

Watch Arbeit Nervt and see how much fun beer cans provide.
The HQ clip is currently unavailable on AlexandLiane’s site.

Looking Shockingly Like Milk

Every gay blog on the planet has written about Milk. The new Gus van Sant biopic about Harvey Milk, the first openly gay city supervisor of San Francisco, and gay rights activist. Milk and Mayor George Moscone were shot to death by resigned city supervisor Dan White in 1978.

The movie opens later this year.
Sean Penn plays Harvey Milk.
Watch gay gayness below.

They Call Her G-G

And I’m not talking about Gossip Girl here. It’s the Governor General I’m interested in. It all comes down to this: Queen Elisabeth II. has a lot to do with reigning over 16 countries, so she needs a Governor General in Canada.

I’m obsessed with the role of the G-G for several reasons:

  • Most importantly: There is only one person above the G-G, the Queen
  • The G-G is addressed as His/Her Excellency
  • The G-G has his/her own flag and it is stunning. I would like to get a dress made out of a fabric with that cute little lion printed all over.

Maybe one day I can become a G-G, too. I’m an immigrant lady, so I have one of the prerequisites. However, the G-G gets appointed on advice of the Canadian Prime Minister. Mmmmh. There should be a way!
