Filmshot at Tatoo show in Vienna

Freakshow and tatoo-shops at Gasometer in Vienna. I had a filmshot there. I also met the most tatooed man, even in the Guiness book of records. Mariam interviewed him.

Some freaks there, some stereotype people. Tatoos came up in the late 80s. I had my Ed Hardin-tie, what fits well, because Ed Hardin 1996 had a show called "Pierced Hearts and True Love" in New York City, what gave the tatoo-subculture a kick.

The producer-girl Mariam purchased a bodice (corsage). Looks great, yes. camera-girl Olivia also purchased one. Fooling around with Olivia at a Alien-sculpture.

 

The drumshow was great. The music very rhythmic and on stage 6 drummer where drumming on oil barrels and acrobats performed. After 4 hours we had enough and went off.

On the way home in the sub U3 a girl with two boys sat down near me. She said: hello! I replied: Hi! She thought I came from England, but I said I am a rockmusician from Hollywood. We communicated only in english. When they left the train I said a goodbye in good german and they started to laugh as if they never can stop. The sub left the station and I still could hear them laugh.

At vernissage Kulturstadl Essling

Yesterday vernissage with Ingrid & Doris in Essling / Vienna. The event took place in the suburbans Kulturstadl Essling. Long way from the (inner) city to district 22. Out there it doesnt look like the city of Vienna. It looks more landscape and small village. Nearby there is a small museum for Fatty George, a famous Austrian clarinet-player.
At the event 2 artists presented their paintings. After speeches (well, must have) a poet read hist texts. Something boring and irrelevant. Finally a dancing group performed 4 dances. All of them female. Well, that was a hit.
I had to film the event to make a DVD then. Even get payed. Not too much, but I'm a lucky man.
