Ground Control to Major IWBCMAN,

Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift-off

For those who know me this is a lifeline, a pulse meter, a small glimpse of what is to come. For those of you who do not know me this weblog will consist of a smattering of tiny texts ranging from extremely geeky computer obsessions to soul searching psychodramas to vertigo-inspiring philosophical exposés to rather offbeat political and social commentaries. Some of the entries will be written in English, whereas others will be written in Deutsch. Unfortunately only the former will likely be free of rather embarrassing grammatical errors.

Da viele meine Freunden Deutsch als Muttersprache sprechen und Englisch nur als entfernte Zweitsprache sprechen koennen werde ich mich darum bemühen genauso viel Deutschsprachige Einträge zu schreiben wie ich in Englisch schreiben werde.

Dieser Blog wird für die, die mich schon kennen, ein Lebenszeichen sein-ein kleines Einblick in meinem Leben-und da Ihr mich schon kennt wird wohl keiner von Euch übberascht sein wie viele grammatikalischer Fehler in einem Satz vorkommen kann. Für diejenigen, die mich noch nicht kennen, wird dieser Blog eine Reihe von kürzen Texten enthalten, die ein ganzes Spektrum von obskure Computer Zeug zu melodramatischen persöhnliches Psychodrama zu abgrundige philosophischen Überlegungen zu etwas schrägen politischen und sozialen Kommentare umspannen wird.

And just to make things more difficult, werde ich manchmal, English and Deutsch in einen sentence zusammenwerfen, da ich denke, wenn überhaupt,  genau so viel in english as I do in german.

I live in two tongues, if I write in only one language, only half of me will be shown. Jedoch das, was sich in so einen Blog zeigen läßt, wird sicherlich nie das zeigen können wer ich bin.

I will attempt to avoid waxing solipsistic, although I remain skeptical as to what extent a blog can be anything but an exercise in self-centeredness, a condition which is the exact opposite of where I need to be headed.

This post shall be forgotten, these words shall echo through the vast telepresence and be lost, on eyes that shall not read them and the eyes of those I so yearn to see again, of people unbeknownst to me and friends and aquaintances scattered to the four corners of world. My heart goes out to those with whom I have had no contact with in the last years, those with whom I have lost contact with, those who I so rarely get a chance to see, and those whose names remain unrevealed.

I will be informing some of those who I know about this new blog-to get this thing rolling please drop a little message in the comments…

Hello World!

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can(actually a tiny apartment in Freiburg, Germany)
Far above the world(actually studying the underside of the daisies)
Planet Earth is blue(although red is the color that consumes me while I write this)
And there’s noSomething I can do

Karl here,

IWBCMAN out.
