[REVIEW] BUCK-TICK—Arui wa Anarchy
2014.06.04 Lungua Sounda / Tokuma Japan
__
»As veterans in Japanese Rock, BUCK-TICK are putting out one stellar album after the other with a sweet collection of deep, dreamy, sad, and joyful songs. Essentially producing more autumn-like music, their album ›Arui wa Anarchy‹ is something I love to listen to in summer. It always brings me back to summer 2014, in which we were laying the foundation for EN.CORE ROCKS. The album also captures a concept of surrealism in fabulous music and its graphic design is simply stunning. But I admit, I picked it for emotional reasons. To me ›Arui wa Anarchy‹ is euphoria to start something meaningful, a high sense of quality, the optimism that I can reach everything I want when I give my everything, and most of all the promise we gave ourselves and our readers with our magazine work!«—Wanda, head of EN.CORE ROCKS.
She adds: »Thank you all for being part of that journey!«

SONG RECOMMENDATION: MELANCHOLIA (track 06 of 14)

AM I GOING TO BE OKAY? »Am I ever going to be okay?«, I asked myself years ago after several exhausting »phases« of feeling down and a lack of motivation. »Yes, you will«, I ensured myself. »This is just grief after losing your mother. In the end, you will be okay, you will be fine.« I learned to live with the feeling of never being fully happy, which is totally fine. After all, missing my mom didn’t bother me. Grief is love after all.

But those reoccurring »phases« in which I wasn’t even able to find motivation for what I loved to do always came back. »You work too much«, I warned myself. »Just so many hard things are happening at once«, I explained to myself. »This is just a phase, you will be okay, you will be fine.« Then a few days back I’ve been reading on depression based on the worry about a person dear to me and I finally realized, that it’s not »just phases«—I’m dealing with a full-blown depression myself.

So no, I’m not going to be okay, I’m not going to be fine. Unless I get help. Unless I stop telling myself that »it’s not that bad«. Unless I stop telling my beloved ones not to worry about me, »because it will just take time and others are worse.« Unless I do the work that is necessary to get well for real. Unless I follow the advice I give to others myself.

I feel incredible sad at the moment, because I know this will be a long way to go, but I will be okay, I will be fine!

Folks, please be safe, be happy, be true to yourself, and get help when you can’t manage getting better alone and with the support of your friends and family!

Calming down by the fireside with @jigus_art . Thank you for being such a good friend to me these days. Much looooove!! 😘
She told me, it’s an old game to take pictures of flames and then think about what you see, which will be a fortune telling about the future. Well, I saw a devil... what do you see?

And then, there is our impeccable talent to miss the actual sundown but still have a blasting time with the colors afterwards. 😍

Thursday evening, my friends showed me the beautiful Austrian city Salzburg. Here is Mozart’s birthplace at night with trashcans in front and a Spar supermarket inside, hahaha!

Visualization of my perfectionism: Found something to adjust on almost every photo in the preview print of our @scargotofficial x @encorerocksyou collaboration photo book. Finished the edit yesterday! One step closer to the finalization! 😬

I’ve probably never been happier to have a graphic tablet than yesterday evening when our sweet Cap demanded to sleep on my lap. ☺️

Perks of the summer: Self-made fruit salat and ice tea. 😬
—Recipe 1: Cut fruits of your choice into pieces. Mingle with the fresh pressed juice of an orange. Let it rest. Add honey or maple syrup if you want it sweeter. Add nuts or raisins if you want. Nomnomnom.
—Recipe 2: Mix a cup of Earl Grey tea with the fresh pressed juice of an orange and cold water for about one liter of ice tea. Attention: Either wait until the black tea is cold or add water first and the juice last to keep the vitamins. Enjoy!

I can quite relate to this postcard from Goldbek Verlag (Publisher). 5% Unicorn, 95% Ninja.
You can imagine that due to my name, a few people I came across in life linked me to a panda. And this reminds me of the time @dnl_abanico called me a „ninja photographer“ because „she was everywhere“. Hahaha!
How much unicorn and ninja (and panda) are you?

Yesterday, I went to the intensely inspiring exhibition DELETE at the Museum for Arts & Crafts Hamburg before I left the city. It is part of the ongoing Triennial of Photography and deals with selection and censorship in photojournalism. The aspect of censorship could have featured more broadly, but the exibition gave me a lot of input, nonetheless. Especially the shown video interviews were revealing as I could find myself mirrored in many things the photographers said. Lately, I’m thinking about expanding my photography further in the direction of journalism and the time I spend in the museum yesterday just confirmed that I should do that. As much as I love music photography, but definitely wanna do more!
The photo sheets seen here are from photos Hans-Jörg Anders took in North Ireland for the German magazine Stern in 1969. He won the World Press Photo Award with the photo marked in red and green in the lower left corner.

„Too true to be beautiful.” Very honest saying on the bathroom mirror of the place I stayed the past nights.
It’s based on the German equivalent to “too good to be true”. The word used for “true” is “schön”, which literally translates into “beautiful”.

Back in the picture. I’m gradually getting my feet back on the ground. It’s troubled times for several reasons, thanks for all your patience!

Meanwhile my Vans reappeared after over a year. No idea why I never asked my father if they were at his place—and why he never asked me if they were mine, hahaha!

Take care, everybody!

It’s incredible how good it feels to be on the road! I’m not doing too well at the moment, but even the train ride from Berlin to Hamburg gave me this bliss I rarely get from anything else in the world—even though it’s been crowded and a bit smelly and I had to sit on the floor.
I’m currently reading „The little Book of Ikigai—the essential Japanese way to find your purpose in life“ from Ken Mogi. Thank you for the recommendation, @kimies_tourdiary ! I wonder ... maybe my „purpose“ in life is to travel. At least it makes me so damn happy that it fills me completely, even if it’s just for a brief moment...
Everyone out there, stay true to yourself and be safe!

Dear Docs, you’ve the perfect companions since I discovered you in Tokyo in 2014. We travelled half the world together—thirteen countries in total! We did almost all shows and shootings I did for @encorerocksyou together. You gave me a solid stand during my graduation and countless other moments of joy and pain! You got worn down and even bitten by a fox. Your devotion to join me in all adventures, in summer heat and winter frost will always be unforgotten! I love you, dear docs!
