my suuuuuper aaaamazing night at the < GEGEN FUTURE > party:

before I moved to Berlin in 2003 ... I knew most of all two things about Berlin: the Brandenburg gate and KitKat Club ^^* ... and yesterday night: with my paintings being part of that leeeeegendary club was like one of my BIGGEST dreams became true* <3
it was STUNNING what happened there yesterday night*^^ In my life before: I´ve never been at a Loveparade party in Berlin and because of that I created my own illusions and phantasies about how the feeling must have been there. at Gegen Berlin I had that feeling to feel exactly that Loveparade spirit again and in such HUUUUGE dimensions ... with about 3000 wonderful people partying together ... in absolut freedom ... in wonderful peace. everybody there could be the person someone is and wants to be. The KitKat labyrinth is that much extended that it needed for me six hours !!! to go just one round* I came there already at around 11.15 p.m. ... started to discover the place at the swimming pool area ... then I moved from one room into another ... dancing in eeeeevery room ... with awesome sound of lovely great djs such as Larry Tee Thom <3, Gloria Viagra <3 , Jacob Meehan <3 , ... and when I returned to the swimming pool area again, then it has been 6 a.m. in the morning* :) :* <3 I loved to see those wonderful people being connected with my paintings which have been projected in the main lounge next to the swimming pool* further there was just one official photographer there and I saw no one else taking pictures there ... because no one wanted to destroy the atmosphere ... and so I didn´t want it neither. for that reason there exists only one picture ... one selfie which I took at the very beginning, where I sit in front of my paintings video installation* THIS night was for sure one of THE BEST nights which I ever experienced since living in Berlin* THANK YOU to the < GEGEN FUTURE > promoters for that PHANTASTIC invitation* LOVE YOU <3

4th aug: Dieser Tage fand das VelsPol BUNDESSEMINAR 2017 in Hamburg statt. Dabei wurde unter anderem auch Corny Littmann mit einem Preis geehrt. Es ist mir eine besonders große Ehre und Freude, daß ich diesen Preis gestalten durfte. Das Gemälde zeigt Corny Littmann beim Zerschlagen eines Spiegels im Jahr 1980. Wo er damit bewies, daß sich dahinter Kabinen befanden in welchen die Hamburger Polizei die Klappen kontrollierte. Diese Aktion Corny Littmanns trug zu einem Umdenken bei. Vielen Dank an Corny Littmann, Marco Klingberg und das ganze VelsPol Team.

6th aug: Patrick´s Inner Monolgues

^^ walking in new shoes ^^

it was a loooong time ago when I bought new leather shoes for myself. in the past years it has been sneakers, espandrillos, ... which I bought. this week I bought again two pairs of new LEATHER SHOES. I forgot how painful it is to wear them the first days. somehow I enjoy this pain this time. those new leather shoes symbolize the new way I´m going now with my life. walking in new leather shoes feels good. I enjoy them how I enjoy my new life. those leather shoes look good. they are beautiful. leather shoes have that special style. it will need some days ... weeks ... till they fit perfect ... I´ve got time ... I´m not in a hurry. I plan to walk with them for the next years ... with my new life. walking in new shoes.

9th aug: das Berliner Siegessäule Magazin ist kein Spaßblatt !

"verbittert" nannte mich Kaey Kiel ( <= <3 Happy Birthday <3 btw <= so viel Zeit muß schon sein* ) als ich darauf aufmerksam machte, daß mich das Siegessäule Magazin seit der neuen Führung nicht einmal erwähnt hatte. In keinem Nebensatz ... nicht mal auf einem Gruppenfoto auf den beiden Partyseiten. <= dieses absolute Ignorieren meiner künstlerischen Person und Maler hat mich dazu veranlasst das Siegessäule Magazin seit einiger Zeit einfach nicht mehr zu lesen.
Nicht nur dass Ich mich nicht darin wiederfand ... auch gaaaaaanz viele meiner Freunde und Bekannten fand ich nicht darin. Niemals! Das Siegessäule Magazin wirkte seit der neuen Führung äussert einseitig auf mich. Entweder man war mit den Siegessäule Machern befreundet ... dann gab´s auch Platz im Magazin ... oder man hatte die Arschkarte gezogen.
Das Berliner Siegessäule Magazin ist KEIN SPAßBLATT !!! Das größte und wichtigste queere Magazin MUSS (meiner Meinung nach) ALLE vertreten! Die GANZE QUEERE COMMUNITY MUSS in so einem Magazin Platz finden. ... und wenn mir jetzt ein Zeitschriftenmitarbeiter mit dem Spruch kommt, daß dies nicht möglich sei, dann kann ich nur entgegenen: "Dann üben Sie den falschen Beruf aus!"
Erstens ist dieses Magazin eine Art Zeitzeuge! Menschen darin nicht vorkommen zu lassen stellt ein falsches Bild für die Zukunft dar!
Zweitens: Natürlich ist man als queerer Mensch auch auf die Unterstützung der eigenen Community angewiesen. Wenn diese Unterstützun allerdings nur "Verlagsmitarbeiterlieblingen" vorbehalten ist ... dann läuft etwas falsch!
Drittens bezahlen die Werbepartner dieser Zeitschrift dafür, daß ALLE erreicht werden.
Viertens: Sollten sich die Mitarbeiter dieses Magazin der Wichtigkeit ihrer Existenz bewußt sein! Die Mitarbeiter sollen und müssen über den Dingen stehen: persönliche Befindlichkeiten haben keinen Platz!

Lieber einen Maite Kelly Hass Kommentar weniger ... dafür einen positiven aufbauenden Artikel mehr ... <3 LOVE RULES <3

Nun gut! Meine Meinung ist geäussert ... und damit soll es von meiner Seite aus auch gut sein ...

10th aug: *painting number 1 named ^^RELAX RELAX RELAX^^ 100 paintings within 100 days Patrick Bartsch style* it´s really time for me to RELAX ... I mean it´s really necessary to RELAX ... RELAX in many ways ... it will be a sort of meditation to create for the next 100 days a painting in oil on canvas ... every day. ... it´s time to RELAX <3

10th aug: <3 my cute little big spider pet <3

yesterday I needed to kick her out of my flat! I mean coming with her spinning thread down from the ceiling ... showing up in front of my face ... while I´m laying on my couch and chat on fb. THAT was too much! I kicked her out of my flat on the balcony. I mean she is welcomed to come back ... but really needs to stay at her place and NOT running around eeeeeverywhere in the flat^^ *hmmmpppffff*

<3

11th aug: Patrick´s Nachtrag zu: "Die Siegessä... ... *ach, vergiss es!*

Jetzt habe ich doch tatsächlich eine Stunde in der Badewanne (hier kreiere ich sehr viele meiner Ideen) damit verbracht einen perfekten Nachtrag zu meinem Posting von vorgestern "Die Siegessäule ist kein Spaßblatt!" in meinem Gehirn zu erschaffen.
Als ich aus der Badewanne stieg und mich energiegeladen Richtung Laptop bewegen wollte ... schoss mir auf einmal in den Kopf, daß ich ja seit gestern beschlossen hatte ... mich, meine Gedanken, meinen Körper, mein Leben, einfach alles: zu entspannen!
Dies ist ein neues Gefühl und neuer Bestandteil meiner Komplettrenovierung (welche kommenden September genau seit einem Jahr andauert). Um dies zu unterstützen habe ich gestern mit der Gemäldeserie "RELAX" begonnen. 100 Tage lang plane ich jeden Tag ein Gemälde in Öl auf Leinwand zu erstellen ... und wenn möglich zum Thema "Entspannung". Mit 43 Jahren sollte ich es auch endlich mal lernen ... wenn es notwendig ist zu entspannen. Die Siegessäule Sache habe ich geäussert und damit solte ich es jetzt auch beruhen lassen.

... und in ein paar Wochen bin ich mit meiner neuen Entspannung hoffentlich schon so weit ... daß ich auch nicht mehr eine Stunde lang in der Badewanne über soetwas nachdenke ... sondern ganz einfach: über etwas Besseres!

<3

21st aug: <3 my mom´s fabulous wisdom <3

yesterday my mom came here to visit me <3 she has always some wise fabulous new words for me:

she said: "every view into someone else´s eyes ... and every word from someone else´s mouth which reaches your ears ... and every touch ... changes your life forever"

I love my mom <3

21st aug: some "insider info" for friends who know me "better":

dragonblood (one of the best resin for love. love with the outside, the inside, the whole universe. just ultimative LOVE), Elemi (one of the best resin to eliminate bad energies) and Himalaya Ceder Wood (for being strong in general and finding the way back to stand with the own feet on the ground). <= those are the ingredients for my burn incense ceremony today*

normally I do that stuff only during the cold days of the year, but I have the feeling, that I really need it today too*
I do that stuff since about 16 years. people such Cleopatra did it too ... the difference is, that she needed to wait weeks and months till ships brought her new stuff and I need just go to an esoteric market and buy it ... but the results are the same: we both die because of the bite of a snake! <= OH* that wasn´t the thing I wanted to point out: I mean to inhale natural stuff has an AWESOME effect^^* ... and with about 80 different things I have more than Cleopatra ever had. such stuff used by Mayas, Native Americans, ... stuff from the Himalaya ... and all parts of Africa, Europe, ... and exotic stuff such as Eagle Wood <= actually the most expensive thing I own. I love that stuff and like to share my experience and knowledge about it with you too*

okokok ... I wrote enough ... and NOW I neeeeed to start my ceremony* <3 ... people who know me, know what I´m talking about* <3

of course I dope my life with natural stuff used by humans since they discovered the using fire*

have a GREAT AWESOME day everyone* <3

LOVE YOU <3

21st aug: R.I.P. Golo Gott

when I arrived in Berlin in october 2003 ... I knew ... let´s say: nothing about art. I didn´t know Caravaggio, never heard the name Gerhard Richter and knew nothing about the past and present world of art in Berlin. A group of stunning artists welcomed me in Berlin and teached me everything about art: knowledge and most of all: they shared their spirits and their visions with me. they made me understand what art means! one of those stunning artists was Golo Gott. I remember and will never forget: uncountable hours of talking and teaching: art, life, love, ... and muuuuch more. Today I realized that Golo Gott left our planet far too soon. I´m literally shocked about his passing. a part of his soul will continue to live in my art. a part of my art has his roots in the wild, beautiful, phantastic and lovely soul of Golo Gott! THANK YOU for that <3 I will never forget you <3

25th aug: of course it makes me very happy, when someone says/writes something beautiful about my weekly open studio* ... such as wonderful Rebecca Goyette <3 did it yesterday* pls find some beautiful pictures included with her words on her profile:

"I am so moved by this authentic, magical being Patrick Bartsch (many know him as Master Patrick)... Went to his weekly open studio last night, and enjoyed every second.. He takes the sexually free, insistently rebellious energy of Berlin from his location with a first floor balcony overlooking street hustlers and a pay-per-hour hotel, and his nightclub gigs and turns this into high energy, urgent painting.. He wore a wrestling mask for eight years straight as a symbol of empathy.. His couch is painted with Valerie Solanas's S.C.U.M. Manifesto... I met the Russian band Sado Opera who were also visiting for open studio.. And it just felt alive, the heartbeat of Berlin is with Patrick for sure.. He picked up my eight-dick octo-undies last week and just owned it as a lobsta porn star.. Not sexualizing but just being present.. He is of the moment.. I heart Master Patrick!"

Thank You a lot Rebecca <3

25th aug: see you on 1st september with an "GEGEN ART: PATRICK BARTSCH paintings video installation" at the ? GEGEN Future ? party* :* <3

26th aug: ^^ the book "the story of Master Patrick" ^^

some people asked me, when the book will be finished.
my answer: it´s finished. it just needs to be corrected and translated into english.
so far I put it in my archiv .... there are already four other finished (and not published) books ... which I wrote in my life.

right now I don´t feel, that it´s the perfect time to publish the book "the story of Master Patrick" and also not the other ones. Please bear with me.
the time will come, when the books will be published, but it´s not now.

now I love to concentrate to create more and more and mooooore new paintings in oil on canvas about the life and energy in and about Berlin.

Thank You* <3

27th aug: Patrick Bartsch´s Kommentar dazu: "es bedarf heutzutage an einiges um es in den Kreis der ´zivilisierten Gesellschaft´ zu schaffen ... und nicht unter den ´Unzivilisierten´ zu versacken ..."

27th aug: OMFG ^^ tonite I had a reeeeaaaallll shocking nightmare XoP I dreamed that one of my hoooootttttest friends here on facebook ... unfriended me ^^ AAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHSSSSS ^^

29th aug: Happy Birthday Michael <3 ... to see Michael Jackson at his BAD tour from the first row (and YES! about 50 000 people pushing against me from the back) was one of the most inspiring and perhaps important moments of my youth. I was 14 years young and the BIIIIGGGGEST Michael Jackson fan* <3

29th aug: yesyesyes* okokok* I did an workout break during that summer ... for about 10 weeks. but NOW I continue to do exercises again at home* ... I´m still skinny and still within the first year since I started to do workout ... my new slogan: *never give up* <3

GEGEN FUTURE ? seeeee you aaaaaaalllllll <3 :* <3

1st sept: some thoughts for <3 my american friends <3

since about one year I watch CNN frequently ... while being at my regular nightshift job in a hotel. I started to watch it to improve my english. with languages I´m not really a talent ... it´s very hard to get new vocabularies into my head. but to watch CNN for hours really helped me AND it gave me a completly new look into the country of America and the people living there. I´m phascinated to see how people in America stand together against Trump. I´m phanscinated to see how much people care about other people in need ... especially now after hurricane harvey. I loved people from America already before but since I watch CNN I love Americans even much more* <3 YOU´RE GREAT ^^ <3
so far I´ve never been in America ... but I know tons of Americans from my years living in Berlin ... and hope that one day I can make it to America and visit your phantastic country with such many awesome people <3

LOVE YOU <3

1st sept: tbt in 2008:
me: "hey Brian, Rosa is shooting a short movie in a club named Ficken3000. I´ve never been there. Do you want to come there too?"
Brian: "I know that club! yes, I come there too!"

... then this short movie (24 h Berlin) happened.

about three weeks later:
Brian: "hey Trish (his nickname for me). I´m doing a party named PORK (named after Andy Warhol´s PORK theatre). pls come there too!"
me: "yes, sure! where is it?"
Brian: "at Ficken3000."
since then I spent almost eeeeevery sunday night in that glamorous club :* <3

OMG ^^ so great to see Brian again in that short movie* <3 pls don´t miss the end of that short movie, because Brian smiles into the camera ... <3

1st sept: "GEGEN ART: PATRICK BARTSCH paintings video installation" means:

as I meantioned already: when I came to Berlin ... I knew almost nothing about art and literally nothing about ´oil on canvas´. Within 14 years living in Berlin ... I took all the inspiration possible to get in Berlin ... when meeting awesome stunning artists ... such as Salomé, Henning von Berg, Isa Genzken, Pascual, Wolfgang Tillmans, many many more and last but not least Brian-Tennessee Claflin who teached me within a seven years friendship, that I don´t need to be afraid of being ´wild´. With all that knowledge I created my own style of art. My art life in Berlin went through photography, performance art and ended in creating paintings in oil on canvas. Tonite at < GEGEN FUTURE > there will be shown in a video installation how it looks like when someone takes for 14 years inspirations of Berlin. pls let me name it ´Original Berlin Art´

I´m very happy that I may be part of a fabulous glamorous night at the < GEGEN FUTURE > party in KitKatClub <3 I plan to be there already early ... at around 11.30 p.m. * see you later* <3 LOVE YOU <3

2nd sept: my suuuuuper aaaamazing night at the < GEGEN FUTURE > party:

before I moved to Berlin in 2003 ... I knew most of all two things about Berlin: the Brandenburg gate and KitKat Club ^^* ... and yesterday night: with my paintings being part of that leeeeegendary club was like one of my BIGGEST dreams became true* <3
it was STUNNING what happened there yesterday night*^^ In my life before: I´ve never been at a Loveparade party in Berlin and because of that I created my own illusions and phantasies about how the feeling must have been there. at Gegen Berlin I had that feeling to feel exactly that Loveparade spirit again and in such HUUUUGE dimensions ... with about 3000 wonderful people partying together ... in absolut freedom ... in wonderful peace. everybody there could be the person someone is and wants to be.

4th sept: another wisdom by Brian-Tennessee Claflin <3 as capricorn I´m ... was ... superstubborn^^ Brian teached me within our friendship, that there is no reason to be stubborn. It´s absolutly ok to change his mind about something/someone. I remember very good how Brian said many times to me ... while having that special expression in his face ... "I´ve changed my mind!" ... and this is also the title of my 26th painting of the new serie "RELAX ... 100 paintings in oil on canvas Patrick Bartsch style within 100 days"

4th sept: " I´ve changed my mind "

now it´s exactly one year since I decided to change my life. In september 2016 I decided to renovate my whole body, soul and life. before I lived a very destructive life ... took every dr*g possible to get in Berlin ... and yes, the hardest ones too. and not just that I took them ... also I was on a speed way to become a regular member of the dr*g scene in one of the darkest corners of Berlin. it happened and I´m not proud of it and also I don´t want to blame Brian´s death in summer 2014 ... but also I don´t want to blame just myself that my life was about to end in a disaster, where I had moments where I wished to die by myself.

In september 2016 ... almost I burned down my flat with letting a pot on my stove for eight hours. I had to decide if I take that sign serious or I continue my destructive way of life and soon something worst would happen. I decided to change my mind ... from one second to the other second.

One of the first things was, that I bought washing powder boxes and started to workout. From the universe sent to me was Florian who gave me the advice to write a book. I took his generous advice and wrote a book within six weeks. further more Florian also gave me the advice to paint portraits. I took this fabulous advice and created so far about 40 portaits of wonderful people who visited me in my flat/studio since the past year.

In spring 2017 I renovated my flat ... from the floor up to the ceiling. I painted over those dark colors on my walls and replaced them with a bright yellow Vienna emperor style. I meditated a lot to get more and more my evil thoughts under control and to ban them out of my head.

A great friend of mine supported me with giving me as a sort of donation ... some bags full of designer sport cloths and some professional weights for my workout training. Further I went to the hairdresser every some weeks and even made it by myself to go to a fashion store to buy cloths by myself. (everybody who knows about mental problems, understands which big step it is ... to go for the fist time since years in a fashion store and buy new cloths.)

In july I visited my father to say thank you, that he supports me now since 43 years. and my mother visited me twice in Berlin and I avoided every topic which could end in a fight. it came from my deepest bottom of my heart to be that good son, which she always dreamed about to have.

Very important for me was also to become more serious with my paintings and to plan in every detail my art booth at the lesbian gay streetparty in july 2017. It resulted in a huge success with selling 80 paintings.

I didn´t waste one day to work on the renovation of myself. BIG and small things.The invitations of Rebecca and Francesco to be part of their projects did belong to the absolut hightlights of the past year. perhaps they have no idea how much it meant to me that they believed in me.

I want to THANK those handfull of people who stayed by my side within the darkest hours of my life and those people who supported and believed in me within the first year of my new life. The plan for the next year is to strengthen my situation.

if someone asks me today: "how are you?"
I can answer with my head held high: "thank you! I feel better ... much better ... I feel good!"

<3

6th sept: ^^rich&sexy^^ looooove those fabulous glitzy cars in front of my balcony eeeeevery day :* <3 *DAMN* what a phantastic car that glamorous V8BITURBO monstrosity :* <3

6th sept: and heeeere you can get an impression on 146 pictures by fab Gili Shani ... how the faaaabulous glitzy ? GEGEN FUTURE ? party looked like ... and on this pic you can see a little bit, how my paintings video installation looked like (on the right side of the pic you can see a little bit of the video screen) <3 looove those awesome veeeery beautiful girls in front of it :* <3

7th sept: Patrick Bartsch´s Kommentar: natürlich ist die Wohnungsnot hausgemacht! bis ungefähr 2008 gab es in Berlin leere Wohnungen wie Sand am Meer <= das heisst dann offiziell ´der Wohnungsmarkt war entspannt.´. Ich habe meine Wohnung nicht gefunden ... sondern sie wurde mir quasi nachgeworfen, da zu dieser Zeit Wohnungsgesellschaften froh waren, wenn überhaupt jemand eingezogen war. das sah so aus: dass ich keinerlei Sicherheiten hatte und alleine für fünf leere Wohnungen in diesem Gebäude Schlüssel bekam um mir diese anzusehen. Doch DANN kamen die Jahre ab 2008 wo in Berlin Wohnungen zu zig tausenden an Großwohnungsgesellschaften (auch an einige mit sehr schlechtem Ruf!) verkauft wurden. <= Diese Informationen fanden jedoch keinen Platz auf den Titelseiten der Zeitungen, sondern fand ich zumeist: relativ klein im Eck irgendwo auf Seite 7 oder 8. Weiters: Dass die Stadt mit übermässigem Wohnungsneubau nicht gegen diese Großwohnungsgesellschaften spielte ... zeigte lediglich wie sehr diese unter einer Decke steckten. ... und somit: JA! Die Wohnungsnot in Berlin ist hausgemacht und meiner Meinung nach: sogar: Kriminell !

7th sept: just made the decision, that my FOLSOM BERLIN weekend starts N O W <3 ^^Happy Folsom to eeeeeveryone^^ :* <3 see you in my lovely hood* <3

7th sept: just did a walk around my hood where Folsom is going to happen. I did wear a glowing red sweater and my new bright jeans. somehow I had the feeling, that I didn´t fit in that crowd of black leather and black rubber wearing people. further more most of them drink beer and I´m in the mood to drink strawberry milkshake. ... so I´m back home again ... and perhaps the best thing to do right now is ... just go to bed*

good night everyone :* <3

8th sept: one of my cameras doesn´t work. all the pictures look similar that way. somehow I started to like them ... and now I plan to paint them in oil on canvas ... :* <3

8th sept: ^^ Die Wahl ^^

natürlich mache auch ich mir Gedanken über meine Wahl am Sonntag den 24. September 2017:
Einfach nicht wählen zu gehen und lieber auf der Couch zu liegen <= dafür empfinde ich mich zu reif und auch zu "alt".
Natürlich ist mir bewusst, daß ganz egal was oder wen ich wähle ... es immer Menschen gibt, welche meine Wahl als "falsch" bezeichnen.
Ich schätze es sehr in einer Demokratie zu leben und möchte dies unterstützen und ausleben ... somit MUSS ich ganz einfach auch wählen gehen.
Parteien sind manchmal gut und manchmal schlecht. Deshalb wähle ich sehr gerne Personen bezogen. Seit jeher tendiere ich dazu Frauen als Führungskraft zu wählen. Fr. Wagenknecht galt lange als meine Favoritin ... ist es aber nicht mehr. Ich finde die Persönlichkeit von Fr. Merkel äusserst interessant. Wie sie privat lebt, wie sie sich kleidet, wie sie mit den Menschen in Deutschland umgeht. Kein Mensch ist perfekt und niemand ... und schon garnicht Politker ... machen immer alles richtig. Fr. Merkel hat bestimmt einiges falsch gemacht ... aber auch sehr viel richtig. Vor ein paar Monaten habe ich vor ihrem Bundeskanzleramt dafür mitdemonstriert, dass sie beim Treffen mit Putin die dramatische Lage der Homosexuellen in Tschetschenien anspricht. Und sie hat es getan und somit dieses Thema auf der Weltbühne nochmals unterstrichen. Dafür DANKE ich Fr. Merkel! Minderheiten sind ihr eben doch nicht egal! <= war die Botschaft welche mich durch ihr Tun erreichte.
Es wird wohl so aussehen, daß ich mich in der Wahlkabine auf meine Art bei ihr dafür bedanken möchte und ihr meine Stimme geben werde.

9th sept: ^^ is that really true!? ^^

almost every morning when I wake up ... I remember my dream(s) of the night. I dream a loooot and colorful, intense dreams. today when I woke up, then I wasn´t sure if that £550.00 FICKEN3000 t-shirt was just another of my crazy dreams. But it seams very much, that this is my reality. I remember some months ago when Frank (the owner of the club Ficken3000) told me about a fashion show of "someone" in Paris and that he got invited to go there and that they would pay for the flight and the hotel. When Frank returned I asked him about Paris and he was suuuuuuper happy that people in Paris knew about his club and told him stories of how much they enjoyed the darkroom. I was very glad that Frank had a great time there. After being together with Frank almost eeeevery sunday night made us similar as being siblings ... we know eachother ... we understand eachother with saying just some words ... or just a glance. I asked him about the name of the designer or the label, but he couldn´t give me an answer. we are both not good with names. Many of those famous guests at Ficken3000 ... we both never heard their names before ... and sometimes it´s very good that way, because we treat every guest the same way ... Rufus Wainright, Amanda Seyfried, Michael Stipe, Wolfgang Tilmanns, Sean Lennon, and many more. the club Ficken3000 is Frank´s living room. he has that club because he´s not allowed to do parties at home ... at the place where he lives together with his husband since almost 30 !!! years. With the club Ficken3000 he created ... DESIGNED ... a place where he is allowed to do parties. this place is more than just a club ... it´s Frank´s soul ... in every corner ... every lamp got placed exactly ... every decoration piece got placed exactly ... and within all those years this club became legendary <= that´s exactly the right word ... even when Frank says that this was never the plan to become ´legendary´. With the help of fabulous Frank Wilde <3 finally I know the details about that glamorous glitzy shirt. the fierce company name is Vetements ... and the awesome designer is Demna Gvasalia who is also the chef designer of Balenciaga ... and Dover Street Market is the shop of Comme des Garcons and the price of £550.00 is real too.
Now I realize that this is not a dream* ... it´s reality with every word ... and it deserves to be reality ... because FICKEN3000 symbolizes a sort of freedom which almost doesn´t exist on that planet. straight, lesbian, transgender, gay, .... people celebrate there together ... in harmony and peace and most of all love. everyone in that club ... can be that one .... that one someone really is or wants to be. EVERYONE is welcomed in that club ... every age, every nationality, .... just EVERYONE <3 and I know it, because I may be at that glamorous glitzy door of that club ... every sunday night ... since more than eight years* :* <3 see you next sunday* :* LOOOOVE YOU AAAAALLLLLLL :* <3

12th sept: OMG ^^ sundays ICKY party was AMAAAAAZING* :* <3 I LOOOOVE <3 ANDREJ <3 Andrej Vile is for sure one of MY GREEEEAAATEST GLAAAAMOROUS SUUUPERSTARS IN BERLIN* :* <3 LOOOOVE HER PERFECTION & HER LOVE FOR EEEEVERYONE :* <3

12th sept: <3 I´M BACK <3 okokok* the real reason why I did a workout break for almost three months is: I HURT MYSELF! OF COURSE I HURT MYSELF! that´s my nature: I learn through experience ... and not through well-meant advices :( I hurt both shoulders while doing some wrong exercises and it was veeeery painful to sleep and to lay in bed with two injured shoulders :( ... and it needed really thaaaat much long to heal. and NOW I have no more pain ... try to do all my exercises the right way ... and to do workout again on a daily basis. <3 WELCOME IN MY SECOND YEAR of doing workout at home <3 ... and YES! I have idols ... such as ... do you know that 80 year old asian supermodel with the muscle body ... yes, that guy who started to workout in the age of 60 and looks S T U U U U U N N I N G in the age of 80. <= YES! I want to look the same way when I´m 80 years old* :* <3

13th sept: habe ich eigentlich schon erwähnt, daß Ernst Ludwig Kirchner einer meiner größten Vorbilder für meine Malerei ist. Sehr gerne möchte ich als eine Art Ernst Ludwig Kirchner der heutigen Zeit ... des heutigen Berlins wahrgenommen werden. Dies ist sozusagen einer meiner ganz großen Träume ...
