JT Kitzel: Blutige Bande

Gestern war’s also soweit: Die erste Lesung auf der neuen Heimat-Sim von Joeys Café. Im eigens in LINC Citys Hafenviertel aufgebauten Ghetto-Dachidyll las Jan-Tobias Kitzel aus seinem noch unveröffentlichten Shadowrun-Roman Blutige Bande (Arbeitstitel).

Jan-Tobias Kitzel

Wer (wie ich 😉 ) im Shadowrun-Universum noch nicht so zuhause ist, für den hat Nat in ihrem Lesungsbericht schon einige interessante Hintergrundinfos zusammengetragen. Bemerkenswert erscheint mir unter anderem, dass in Jans Shadowrun-Setting Diversität ganz zwanglos thematisiert ist: wenn zB ein Ork schon seit Geburt wie ein Mensch fühlt oder zwei Menschen ein Zwergenkind bekommen …

Jan-Tobias Kitzel

Jan las jedenfalls gewohnt mitreißend und den Zuhörern hat’s offenbar gefallen!

Zum Abschluss gab’s passend zu Halloween auch noch ein besonderes kleines „Schmankerl“ …

Wohl bekomm’s!

Torben Asp in Joeys Café

On very, VERY short notice the very talented and fun Torben Asp agreed to play live at Joeys Café yesterday evening (well, actually noonish for Torben, I guess). Instead of a reading by Ann-Kathrin Karschnick who couldn’t make it due to RL, there was electronic music of the finest sort.

One hour of very enjoyable, dancable electronic music for everybody to enjoy. Whether you were a toaster ( 😉 ):

or a Tiny:

We’ll be glad to have you back anytime, Torben! 😀

Of course, things had been a little hectic that day as everything was set for a reading in an italian reastaurant. I do have to admit I felt sorry breaking the set which Nat, Ito and I had had so much fun setting up. Simply clearing the stage for Torben wouldn’t do so there was a quick change in seating and other details.

Also Karima was right there when I frantically called for help: logging in immediately and arranging the details with Torben (as in building rights and streaming).

Frankly — I couldn’t have done it without you, Nat, Ito and Karima!

 

So once more: Here’s to friendship — be it inworld or off. HUGSSS!

Machinima: Derendered

Well, it has been almost a week since the first screening of DerenderedTHE most colourful machinima ever from Randt & Hoisan Productions.

There was poetry, there was the screening, there was music, party and laughter. There was joy 😀

Derendered

Lucky me got to participate as an extra once again so I did have an inkling of what lay ahead. But as always the actual machinima exceeded all expectations. It’s beautiful, it’s rich, it’s artistic, it’s no less then love of life.

Derendered

But it’s not the ’suck it up and deal with it‘-kind of living. It’s the ‚I ain’t taking your bullshit anymore‘-way. The message is clear: Fiercely protect beauty and kindness and wipe away all that is ugly, presumptuous and downright evil. Surround yourself with friends who make you stronger!

Derendered

In a virtual world that’s just as easily done as said: ‚Derender, I say. Begone!‘ And that’s what you do. Nobody could have put it into words more playfully or heartfelt than Karima Hoisan. She once again speaks simple truths that are so hard to come by — with complete ease of a true poet. I guess, I’m a fan, Karima 😀

Derendered

Of course a machinima is more than the sum of its parts: a poem put into pictures, pictures made to move. Its Natascha Randt’s artist’s eye, her courageous wielding of camera and lights that make all the difference between a simple video recording and this piece of art. Way to go, Nat!

Derendered

I know I am boasting, but I’ve got to tell you: I love being part of these collaborations between the two of them, even when all I ever do is show up with a costume and hop on a pose ball 😉

Derendered

What’s the bottom line of all this? Be kind, treasure your friends, love the hell out of life and — just derender all that which is trying to keep you away from the good things.

„If only it where as easy in real life,“ you say? Well, try it! It might just work 😉

Derendered

And here it is:

 

A Special Screening of „Derendered“(with extras!) Saturday 12 noon slt

Es ist soweit! Das bunteste Machinima ever von Nat&Karima hat Premiere! Am Samstag, 07.10.2017
