Sleepless in Slovakia

50. Go to Bratislava, Slovakia On a whim, Mathis, Peter and I decided to go to Bratislava this Saturday, since it’s only 60 kilometres away from Vienna and an extremely easy bus ride away. The bus goes between Wien and Bratislava 19 times a day, and is only 14 euros round trip — it would […]

Mardi Gras/Faschingdienstag

So, suddenly I turn around and realize that it’s almost mid-March. What’s the deal with that, March?! An epic account (including pictures!

Props to my brother, Dave, for finding out that he was playing in Vienna and suggesting I go to this show. […]

Warp 1.9

Well, it happened again: Steve Aoki blew my mind, and blew out my eardrums in the process. The epic-ness of a concert can’t really be evoked by mere words, but I’m gonna try. Here’s a photo that some random guy took of Mathis and me in the midst of the awesomeness: Apparently it’s on some […]
