Keltenfürsten

°

What's up in Frankfurt?


This afternoon in the rain, not singing, just standing.
Keltenfürsten.


Installation. Art.


The artist: Ottmar Hörl (*1950)

Die originalgroßen Skulpturen sind eine Hommage an den etwa 2500 Jahre alten 
Keltenfürsten vom Glauberg, eine lebensgroße Sandsteinfigur mit auffallender, 
ohrenförmiger Kopfbedeckung. Die Installation soll die Besucher einladen, sich 
näher mit dem Siedlungsfund zu beschäftigen. Bis zum 14. Oktober waren die 
Keltenfürsten auf dem Opernplatz zu sehen. Danach trennten sich zunächst 
ihre Wege: Vom 15. bis 29. Oktober präsentierten sich die Skulpturen in ausgewählten 
Firmen und öffentlichen Gebäuden im Rhein-Main-Gebiet. Anschließend, 
vom 30. Oktober bis zum 5. November, werden die Keltenfürsten wieder als Gruppe 
vereint auf dem Frankfurter Römerberg für die Kampagne „Kultur in Hessen“ werben.



Check out the world of the Celts:

Grey is the new pink

°
Neue Ausstellung im Weltkulturenmuseum in Frankfurt!


Momentaufnahmen des Alterns

A pretty cool exhibition about getting older.
Like really old.
There are pics of people who are older than 100 years.


Optimist.


One of the brilliant photographs. One. Many good ones to be seen.

GREY IS THE NEW PINK 
presents diverse ideas and models of ‘age(ing)’ from the perspective of 
cultural studies and the visual arts, as well as personal and individual experience. 
Like fragments in a lifetime’s memories, the exhibition combines into an 
anthology of aging the individual ways of dealing with such topics as lifestyle, love 
and sexuality, transmission of knowledge, longevity, illness, health, and death.

In the exhibition ‘age(ing)’ is explored internationally in photographs, videos, 
literature, drawings, as well as large-scale and multimedia installations 
and performances both in the work of scientists, artists and poets, 
as well as younger and older people from the general population.



These guys came from Berlin to join the opening of the exhibition.
Instagram stars big style.


Model and social media star. Born 1945.


Advanced Influencer in instagram. Born 1951.


Yes, cutting boards. With messages.


How to live longer?

Much more in the museum, get your bones to the Museumsufer!

Jukka Kuoppamäki and Inka in Frankfurt

°
Hello fans,
been some time without new postings.
Oderazzi been busy.


Organized this concert in Frankfurt, for SISU-radio.


I had the honour to introduce the artists:
JUKKA KUOPPAMÄKI and his daughter INKA.


Great artists, singers, songwriters.


SISU-girls behind the counter. Kirsi, Aino, Suvi.

Check for more pics in SISU-radio's gallery:



Love, peace and harmony.




It was great fun.


Our SISU-radio hippie team did a great job:
Aino, Amelie, Suvi, Tarek, Vaula, Kirsi.


And we were interviewed by Tanja Huutonen,
Botschaftsrätin für Presse und Kultur,
from Finnish Embassy in Berlin.


Of course, she did the main interview with Jukka.


Tanja does not really know Frankfurt, so ...
Jannis Bar at night is the must!
Lucky us, Terttu was there to tell more stories!


On Monday I was able to show Tanja the sunny Frankfurt Skyline.
After we visited radio x studios in Bockenheim.
Before she visited the honorary consul of Finland, Dr. Kolster.


I did drink one beer during the show, only one!


BRYGGERI.
Also available in Jannis Cafe in Hanauer Landstr. 6, Frankfurt.

Terttu's brother, Pekka Kääriäinen stands behind this company:

Umgekehrter Tsunami

°

Jetzt wird in Mallorca untersucht, 
Mallorca Zeitung berichtet:

Geografen der Balearen-Universität untersuchten am Dienstag 
vor allem die Stelle des Flussbetts, an der ein Sturzbach dicht an Artà 
vorbeiläuft, bevor er bei Canyamel ins Meer fließt. Ihren Messungen 
zufolge erreichte der ansonsten häufig trockene Flusslauf an dieser 
Stelle eine Breite von 26 Metern bei einer Wassertiefe von 2,65 Metern. 
Mittelgroße Steinbrocken wurden mit einer Geschwindigkeit von 
15 Stundenkilometern - über vier Meter pro Sekunde - mitgerissen. 
Rund 600 Kubikmeter Wasser schossen pro Sekunde den Sturzbach 
hinunter und rissen alles mit, was sich der Flut in den Weg stellte, 
so die Analyse der Geografen. Bäume, Büsche, riesige Steine und 
das Eisengerüste einer Brücke wurden in die Fluten gezogen.

Nachdem binnen kurzer Zeit 210 Liter Regen pro Quadratmeter 
gefallen war, entstand neben der Flut eine einzige große Welle 
von etwa fünf Metern Höhe, die innerhalb kurzer Zeit – in den zehn 
Minuten zwischen 19.20 Uhr und 19.30 Uhr – die größten Schäden 
anrichtete und wahrscheinlich alle Todesopfer forderte.

Die Experten nennen dieses Phänomen einen "umgekehrten Tsunami", 
bei dem sich in den Bergen große Wassermengen ansammeln, 
die dann ins Tal schießen und alles mitreißen.

Und die Tiere?

°

The heave rainstorm took life of 12 people.
But how many animals got killed?
Today I found one article:

Die Rettungskräfte haben inzwischen Bilanz der Unwetternacht gezogen: 
So wurden rund 400 Notrufe angenommen und mehr als 200 Personen 
aus ihren Häusern oder von Dächern gerettet. Auch rund 60 Tiere 
konnten lebend gerettet werden. Für 220 Tiere kam jede Hilfe zu spät, 
sie entkamen den Fluten nicht.



The orange trees suffer under the heavy rains as well.
Too bad. That is nature.


On Sunday afternoon, 21. October 2018
Finnish singer and song writer JUKKA KUOPPAMÄKI
is coming to Frankfurt with his daughter INKA,
who also sings and writes her own songs.
They both live in Cologne, so our little SISU-radio crew
can just afford to organize this concert.

Even if you do not understand Finnish you are 
very welcome to the Finnish night.
These multitalented musicians sing in many languages.
Theme of the night: love and peace!


Even if this is the very last year of "Days of Respect"
the message is the most important.
Respect.


TERVETULOA!

Back to basics

°
Yes, the island is not yet back to basics after the storm.


German newspaper makes the drama visible.
All together 12 people got killed, one boy is still missing.



Actually, the German couple was found almost behind of our house.
That was on Thursday, when we were not at home.
I can see that the local police blocked the side roads.


Helicopters kept on going still on Friday.



Life is not predictable.


Let's enjoy every day we live. Carpe diem.


October rose for the deceased.


Green is the colour of hope.


Well, today the big bird did his rounds again above us.
Kind of back to basics.


One basic thing at this time of the year:
Algarrobas.
Here a garden shop in Son Servera is buying these thingies.

The ripe, dried, and sometimes toasted pod is often ground into carob powder, 
which is used to replace cocoa powder. Carob bars, an alternative to chocolate bars, 
as well as carob treats, are often available in health food stores. Carob pods are 
naturally sweet, not bitter, and contain no theobromine or caffeine.

Yale, we do have a couple of those trees in our garden.
Should check how to use them.
Or collect the pods ... for 50 cents for a kilo ...?

Finnisch für Anfänger:
JOHANNEKSENLEIPÄPUU = Johannisbrootbaum / St John's bread
LEIPÄ = Brot /bread
PUU = Baum / tree


And yesterday we had our last dinner with the holiday makers
in a local restaurant, they serve 1€ tapas on Fridays.


And very kind, they also made vegetarian versions!



Maria & family had fun, despite the rainy weather in the
beginning of their holidays.
