While I thrive in illusion, in total fantasy, I find perfection in Life. If I keep on dreaming, I will hold on to my soul. A person not taking place in reality, off to France, off to Disneyland where one finds fulfillment. Und spießig zu sein, schließt nicht aus, klug zu sein... Wie auch umgekehrt ... "As I stand by the wall, I think of all the furniture I did not sell today.

Our lives are about to change in a rather drastic way - both of us realizing the amount of dissatisfaction and disgust of being deceived by society which tricked us into believing that we could actually have a life (in) that chique way.

The radiation leak from the TV set intensified our own internal glowing.

Into the mechanism, we built a strange transversal intermix pattern: We return to normal every now and then - when there is passion in Life, or when there's something on TV ... "

Daher rufen wir Sie auf:

Gehen Sie dort Kaffeetrinken - noch heute !!!

Und nicht vergessen:
auf der Terrasse nur Kännchen !

Ihr Tunten der Welt, Ihr Tunten Amerikas, Großbritanniens, Frankreichs und Italiens, schaut auf dieses Café !

Und Ihr wißt, daß Ihr dieses Café nicht preisgeben dürft, nicht preisgeben könnt.
