Get me out of here

I think that "there was nothing downtrodden or Woyzecky about him" is perfect. I'm getting to be a bit Woyzecky and don't like it one bit. I'm leaving soon. Good for me.

Don t care

They are just Posers and deeply blocked, in their head they are still the Paderborn or Renzburg or Buxdehude guys they ve always been, but hey ! they are in Berlin so they have to look like it. When they were in their small towns and little villages, they were seeing all this posh girls on the hardcovers of their indi cd s, so now they have to go for exactly that. And after their first trip to New York they have seen how a big city guy has to act. This is not Cologne ! or Hamburg ! or München ! it s Berlin !!!!
There is no place in the world, where it is so easy to be what you seem, and that is exactly why Berlin is not a city, but the biggest village in the world. cheers ! To Jodie : are you german ? its not about the language you use, but the thing you say with it, if you ve got nothing to say, but your language and stile is soo perfect, a secretary job would do better, than posting a comment. Giving advices to people is a provocation to get advices back..now you can give me an advice, but please.. don t hit me with my language..i might be able to think, that you are not able to comprehend what i want to say..

Other Haters

Lol, this post reminded me of something I wrote on www.berlinhater.de just the other day! I just wish people would laugh out loud here! They do in the rest of Germany!

sorry

Totally agree...the haters must be the German Berliners. They are cold, unhelpful and make everything kind of worse....

Too FUnny

Loved the first line of this blog, it reflected my mood exactly, shame about the sad reality of the getting old, but I think the actual reason i s more scary than that, I think we actually adopt the fear and forget the innocent smile

Nausea

This diatribe is offensive and, even if it wasn't, it is a thorough waste of time. All writers must learn their craft, it is true, but there must be ways other than subjecting unsuspecting readers to such unnecessary and pointless drivel. Good thing it is localised to only English-speaking readers, who the writer apparently believes live in the lower reaches of civilisation. A kindly word of advice, Jacinta: write it, put it aside for a day (or two, or three), and then re-read and reflect. This simple process may serve you and your quest as a writer.

Who's the hater?

None of the above, Phil. But nice job. "Brilliant", "work", and "Amok", all in one sentence, impressive feat. So why are you addressing Amok in the plural in your subject line?

Haters

Have you commenters all had your basic comprehension glands removed, or are you just Americans? Keep up the brilliant work, Amok.

ASW indeed

Of course those Turkish teenagers stopped hitting on you. At that age they could get off on a biology textbook. They're in their 20s by now and have developed some taste. Now they're following me around. Much more discreetly, of course: I'm middle-aged and male.

... Is brilliant!

Well..

Well...I think this is a book case of ASW, Attention Seeking Whore. Don't take this personally but any psychoanalyst would deduce this in a matter of seconds. Wich also makes it hard to believe your story, and why I reached to the end.. god knows I love to procrastinate, but now you make me wan't to get back to work.

With 334 views, the chances of them having seen you is pretty slim. Listen to the final recording here from Beverley Eckert http://storycorps.org/listen/stories/category/september-11/page/2/ to see whether it can awaken some residual empathy. I did like the Marshall Plan joke, though.
