  1. It's been awhile since i posted something about my city, so i thought i do it again. This is a tour guide through the city center, or the old city with it's renaissance buildings. It's not perfect, but it gives you a good idea of what my city looks like. If you have any questions, i am happy to answer them.
  2. BBC News Beer Pipeline. So Germany is building a massive underground pipeline... not for oil, not for natural gas, not for coal, diamonds, diamond dogs or minerals from the kingdom of the Sleestaks... but for beer. It is being constructed for the upcoming Wacken Open Air festival this August. It is being hailed as being more eco-friendly and more efficient for getting tasty beers into thirsty rock fans mugs. Every year it is claimed the beer trucks delivering their suds tear up the countryside, and this will put a stop to that. Although this line did catch my eye... YIKES! This year it is probably going to be pretty sanitary, but next year you have to wonder if the pipe delivering your frosty brew was just a few weeks earlier pumping human waste to parts unknown? I thought I would open this topic up for thoughts and opinions... what do you think? Great idea? Ridiculous? Over the top? Eco-friendly brilliance? Is anyone here attending WOA? How would you feel about getting your beer from site unseen 4 miles away?
  3. 3 days after my glorious birthday, something different big happend in my city and something happend almost every year there in my city. The CWA Catch Cup was wreaking havoc in Bremen. Small history, the CWA was the league of Austrian Otto Wanz, former AWA world heavyweight champion. Every year, he held a 7 day show in Bremen called the catch cup and it was always during Christmas time, in the Bremen Stadhalle. We had some of the biggest stars there. Otto Wanz, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, Jushin Thunder Liger, Andre the Giant, etc.When it comes to me, Bremen and the CWA, is like New York City and the WWE/F. We had the biggest and best Wrestling audience in all of germany. This here is Bull Power (who many known him as Vader, from his WCW and WWF days) vs. the owner Otto Wanz, for the CWA heavyweight championship, which Power held at the time. Have fun.
  4. I found this video on youtube and i thought it might interest some people, that might want to visit my country. Fun Fact: Bremen is in 8:26.
  5. Beckenbauer (also known by his nickname "Der Kaiser") is still considered the greatest german footballer of all time and one of the all time greats in general. Beckenbauer made his Bundesliga Debut for Bayern Munich in 1964 with 18 years of age and won his first title 2 years later, when he won the german cup. He went on to represent Germany in the 1966 World Cup in England, where he was voted the best young player of the tournament and finished 2nd with Germany, behind world champions England. The years after that, Beckenbauer was winning one title after another. He won the european cup winners cup in 1967 with Bayern Munich, won the German championship in 1969, won the german championship 3 times in a row between 1972 and 1974 and won the european champions cup between 1974 and 1976. His career highlights though, must have been winning the european championship in 1972 and the world championship in Germany in 1974, against the "total voetbal" team from Holland, that was captained by Johan Cruyff. In 1977, Beckenbauer ended his active Career at Bayern Munich and the German team and went to New York Cosmos in the US, with his buddy Pele, where he won the North American Soccer League 3 times (1977, 1978, 1980.) It was a promotion tactic to spread the sport around the US. After that, Beckenbauer returned to Germany and played 2 more years at the Hamburger Sport Verein in Hamburg, where he became german champion once again, in 1982. This was the end of his active playing career. Beckenbauer took a 2 year break, until he took the job as coach of the german national team in 1984, eventhough he had no official coach license. To the surprise of all, Beckenbauer took the germans all the way to the World Cup final in Mexico, where they lost to Diego Maradonas Argentina. After that, Germany played in the euros of 1988 in Germany, where they lost to arch rivals and later champions Holland in the Semis. Beckenbauers greatest hour as coach came, when Germany won the 1990 World Cup in Italy, facing Maradonas Argentina again and getting Revenge. Beckenbauer is with Mario Zagallo from Brazil, the only man who became world champ as an active player and as a coach. Beckenbauer left the German team afterwards and coached Olympique de Marseille in France for one year, where he even reached the European champions cup final, which they lost to Red Star Belgrade. After that, he went back to Bayern Munich where he became Vice President and 3 years later became president, holding that position for 15 years. Besides being President of Bayern, he was Vice President of the german football association from 1997 till 2010, was member of the FIFA executive Commitee from 2007 till 2011 and was responsible for bringing the World Cup tournament in 2006 back to Germany. Some people might love him and some people might hate him, but you have to respect what he did for the great sport of Football, especially here in Germany. Alles gute zum Geburtstag Franzl.
  6. Found a very unique short movie about Berlin, during the reign of the third reich, in color. You have to admit, the city looks very beautiful in this vid. If you want to hear the commentary in the vid, you can put on the english subs in the vid.
  7. Thought it would be fitting to end my little mini series of my home, with footage of the present times. As of now, Bremen is a german independent state, for 900 years now. The Roland Statue and the Bremer Rathaus are now part of the UNESCO World heritage site and it almost feels like it's stuck in time. I really love this city. We have our good and bad times, but i wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
  8. Here we have Bremen in the Year 1949, a city that is pretty much in ruins. Alot of people still fought for survival, thousands of soldiers from the Wehrmacht where war prisoners, families where ripped apart, unknown destinies and sadness where part of the everyday routine. This video what shot by a member of the US Army, who walked through Germany from 1948, till 1954. The City was already in process of being rebuild again, but the scars where still deep. Seeing this vid makes me want to cry.
  9. Here we have a small 2 minute movie about my hometown Bremen, during the year 1937. At first we see the Bremer Marktplatz with it's weekly Grünmarkt, which is still held today. We see the old Renaissance Rathaus, which is the seat of our local goverment. The camera shows the entrance to the böttcherstraße, over the markt, toward to unser lieb frauenkirche. We also see the back then new Karstadt Mall, to the left of the Obernstraße. Some visitors come out of the Ratskeller, visit the Parkhotel with the Hollersee and then go to the Weser Island Teerhof. From the Teerhof island, we see the houses on der Schlachte and the historical Bremen Port. Almost all of the Port was destroyed during the War. The visitor makes a little boat tour through the port. He goes past the Atlas-Werft, goes past the europahafen and then goes to the überseehafen. There are also some things that aren't chronlogically ordered. Alot of these things still stand in my city, only the port is now off, which was a big catastrophe for Bremen.
  10. I found this small article on the web, I found it very interesting as I love folklore and I can confirm the bit about the italian Befana. So I was wondering, since this is an international forum and all, if somepony has some folkish tale to share about their own winter traditions. Here is the article if you wanna read it: Holiday Traditions from around the world Germany There is so much celebrating that it has to begin on December 6th, St. Nicholas Day. As in many other European countries, on the eve of Dec. 6th children place a shoe or boot by the fireplace. During the night, St. Nicholas, the patron saint of children, hops from house to house carrying a book of sins in which all of the misdeeds of the children are written. If they have been good, he fills the shoe or boot with delicious holiday edibles. If they have not been good, their shoe is filled with twigs. Italy On Christmas Eve, Italian children hang their stockings by the chimney where it remains empty until Jan. 6, the Befana day (also known as the Epiphany,) when the befana (during the night) fills it with sweets or coal, depending on whether the children were good or naughty. (The Befana is an old woman (witch) that flies on a broom; she is considered nice and kind.) Spain Christmas dinner is never eaten until after midnight. Christmas Day is spent at church, at feasts and in more merry-making. It is not Santa who comes to Spain bearing gifts, but the Three Wise Men. Mexico On Christmas Eve, small children dressed as shepherds stand on either side of the nativity scene while members of the company kneel and sing a litany, after which the Christ Child is lulled to sleep with the cradle song, "El Rorro" (Babe in Arms). At midnight the birth of Christ is announced with fireworks, ringing bells and blowing whistles. Devout worshipers surge into churches to attend the famous "Misa de Gallo" or "Mass of the Rooster." Following Mass, families return home for a tremendous dinner of traditional Mexican foods. Christmas Day has no special celebration though many have adopted the American style Christmas with a Christmas tree and Santa Claus. France Family celebrations begin with the decoration of the Christmas tree a few days before Christmas; candles and lights, tinsel and many colored stars are attached to it. On Christmas Eve when the children are asleep, little toys, candies and fruits are hung on the branches of the tree as a supplement to the gifts Santa Claus has left in the shoes before the fireplace. Puppet shows are also given every year for Christmas. At midnight everyone attends the Christmas mass. When the family returns home after midnight mass, there is a late supper known as "le réveillon." Ordinarily, young children do not attend midnight mass with their parents, but go to bed early to dream of their Christmas gifts. Before going to bed, they put their shoes by the fireside for a gift from "le père de Noël" or "le petit Jésus." Japan The Nativity scene is given a corner in every Christian house. They also have turkey for Christmas dinner, Christmas trees, evergreens and mistletoe in their stores and homes and even Hoeiosho, the Japanese equivalent of Santa Claus, who is a Buddhist monk bearing gifts for the children. The family members exchange gifts and send cards with the true heart of giving. Japan’s Christmas traditions for Japanese Christians are to spend the day for worship, and charity for the poor and sick. The children perform plays re-enacting the Nativity scene on Christmas Eve. Unique Christmas traditions of Japan are Christmas Cakes, Fried Chicken, and Daiku. China Christians in China celebrate by lighting their houses with beautiful paper lanterns and decorating their Christmas trees, which they call "Trees of Light," with paper chains, paper flowers, and paper lanterns. Chinese children hang muslin stockings and await a visit from Santa Claus, whom they call Dun Che Lao Ren (dwyn-chuh-lau-oh-run) which means "Christmas Old Man."
  11. Triumph of the Will is quite possibly the single most well know piece of Nazi propaganda in existence. It depicts the 1934 National Socialist Party rally in Nuremburg. From a technical standpoint, this film is a masterpiece. 30 cameras, 120 technicians, day shots, night shots, audible outdoor sound... and all of this in 1934 (the film then took six months to develop and edit before being released in 1935). The director, a woman by the name of Leni Riefenstahl, was actually given carte blanche by Hitler himself to produce this movie, and as a result she was able to have lighting gantries, camera track, and even entire bridges built throughout Nuremburg solely to aid in the production of the film. Seeing as there could be no retakes, much care was taken in advance towards getting the shots correct. Multiple cameras and roughly 65 hours of film were used over a period of three days in order to have the greatest possible chance of nabbing that "perfect shot". The 65 hours of film were later edited down to a mere 2 hours for the final version. From a visual standpoint, it isn't very far off from the studio-filmed Hollywood movies of the time. A rather impressive feat, considering that it was filmed outside on location in what was essentially one take. Now, I would be lying if I told you that the event was not rehearsed multiple times beforehand. The Rally was essentially the first "made for film" event and Hitler himself was adamant that everything be perfect for the film. Now content is another matter entirely. This film is astoundingly dull to the modern viewer. It's two hours of Hitler (and the occasional other party leader) making speeches and people marching to music. Even though Hitler was very... passionate... when he spoke, it still doesn't make for an exciting film. But that isn't what it was going for anyway. Its sole purpose was to demonstrate the might of the National Socialist Party and spread its message to the German people, and it does that rather well. So, do I recommend that you watch it? Absolutely. Do I advocate its message? Not at all. So why do I recommend it then? Because improper understanding of the past will only lead to the repetition of its mistakes in the future.
