18th sept: bei mir wird´s DIE LINKE ^^ ... für irgendeinen Kasperleverein muß man sich ja entscheiden *grrrrmmmllll* *hmmmpppfffff*

18th sept: Meine Birke ist weg! :(

Sie war eine sehr schöne Birke ... eine junge Birke ... bestehend aus drei Stämmen, welche jeweils einen Durchmesser von etwa 15 Centimeter hatten. Die Rinde war noch fast garnicht aufgebrochen. Das wunderschöne Weiss war ungebrochen. Sie fühlte sich sanft an und hinterließ einen leichten weissen Schimmer auf meinen Fingern.
Ich steichelte diese Birke jedesmal wenn ich vorbeiging und meist blieb ich stehen und blickte andächtig in die Höhe ... die in meine Richtung hängenden Zweige hinauf. Meine Birke kannte ich zu jeder Jahreszeit. Als ich neu in diese Wohnung in Schöneberg zog, machte ich täglich einen Spaziergang und in dieser Richtung ... in Richtung Wittenbergplatz ... KaDeWe ... wieder zurück in Richtung Viktoria-Louise-Platz ... kam ich immer an diesem wunderschönen, rötlichen, alten Gebäude vorbei. Es war eine Poststelle darin und ein kleiner Musikinstrumenteladen. Direkt daneben stand diese Birke. Ich freute mich meist schon viel früher auf sie ... lange bevor mein Weg an ihr vorbeiführte. Wir hatten eine tiefe Freundschaft ... wie man es als Mensch mit einer Pflanze haben kann. Sie tat mir gut und ich hoffentlich ihr auch.

Einige Zeit war ich schon nicht mehr an ihr vorbeigegangen. Doch heute war Wahltag in Berlin. Mittags bei Sonnenschein ging ich wählen ... in die Urania ... und beschloß danach ... nach langer Zeit wieder einmal meine Birke zu besuchen ... sie zu sehen ... sie zu berühren.
Als ich mich dem ehemaligen Postamtgebäude näherte sah ich bereits diese Eisencontainer, welche man immer bei Baustellen sieht. Das Postamtgebäude war eingezäunt und es wurde offensichtlich daran gearbeitet. Es war leer ... auch das Musikgeschäft war weg. Am Eck steht eine Infotafel welche erklärt, daß hier Wohnungen reinkommen und stolz danaben ein Sticker mit "über 70 % bereits verkauft!". Eine ältere Dame gesellte sich dazu und informierte sich ebenso an diesem Schild. Ich sagte lediglich zu ihr "überall nur noch Wohnungen", wobei sie mir lediglich entgegnete "keine Post mehr".

Auf einmal überkam mich ein mulmiges Gefühl, welches mich drängte nachzusehen, wie es meiner Birke ginge. Doch als ich ihrem Platz näher kam, sah ich, daß sie weg war. Ein großer roter Bagger stand an ihrem Platz und daneben eine riesige Baugrube. Ich war entsetzt und wurde zugleich traurig, da ich mir für einen Moment vorstellte wie sie meine wunderschöne, weiße Birke wohl abgesägt und ihre Wurzel aus der Erde gerissen hatten. Mein Herz blutete. Ich hatte einen Freund mit samtiger weisser Rinde verloren.

Es ist heute Wahl in Berlin und wer auch immer gewinnt, er/sie wird mir meine Birke nicht wieder zurückbringen ...

24th sept: and this is how my life as artist really looks like:

it´s saturday evening around 8.30 p.m. ... I just took a shower and prepare myself to go to bed soon. outside I hear people who are sitting outside of bars ... how they laugh and have fun. it needs all my energy to stay in bed and fall asleep. because tomorrow sunday early morning I wake up at around 6.30 a.m. ... between 7 a.m. till 12 a.m. it´s the time when I have the most concentration ... also the street outside is veeeery quite ... then I continue writing on my new book. I do that every day and every weekend possible ... also when I work on new paintings.
in the afternoon and early evening I´m most of the time completly alone. I´m busy with my head ... the thinking in my head. I bring my mind down on a veeeeery relaxed level. only from that level I can create creative work which I´m satisfied with by myself for 100 percent.
this way of loneliness belongs to my job ... and to many other artists job. it´s the opposite of an exciting life. the exciting things are happening in my head ... and this is what I bring down when I write and create paintings in oil on canvas.

this was my goodnight story* goodnight to all my fb friends <3 and pls think about me, when you do party somewhere :* and SORRY! that it is not possilbe for me ... right now ... to be with you* ... but times are changing and another night we will party together again :* and I´m looking forward to it already :* I love you

(comment on video about women in Saudi Arabia)

1st oct: Patrick´s inner monolgues: about Nietzsche´s "Thus spoke Zarathustra"

perhaps some of the most important words I´ve ever listened to. I found it on youtube and needed about two months to get through the whole text. Every word was worth it to understand, but it also meant to me to be sceptical about every word he said. many times I had an inner discussion with Friedrich Nietzsche. sometimes I had another opinion as he had it. I think this is very important to take that text not as ultimative wisdom. He was a human being as everyone else is. he was for sure not perfect, but it was one of the most perfect lyrics I ever got in contact with.
I think that everybody in school already should get in contact with the whole text. it is never too early and never too late to work out "Thus spoke Zarathustra". I´m 42 years old now and his text reached me at the right time. he gave me answers for questions about my life and life in general ... and new questions too. philosophical texts changed the world. there is a reason for it that Sokrates, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, ... are big names in human history and to understand the reason about it, it is absolutly necessary to get in contact with their philosophical lyrics.

my next text I plan to get in contact with, will be Nietzsches "the antichrist"
... can´t wait!

2nd oct: busy writing on my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... today I wrote about life&death ... and the reason why I changed the black leather mask in a golden leather mask*

3rd oct: okokok* how do you name that when men in their forties start to do SPORTS again!? =D it´s not a midlife-crisis *LOL* ... I just realized that I lost my physical power somewhere in the past decades* ... so I started today veeeery simple with 30 push-ups* and plan to continue on a daily basis from now on* ... and here you see picture number one* ( I know! the first picture is aaaalways the funniest =D )

4th oct: today radio show "Green Tea Berlin" with wonderful Krista Krull on 3 pm. Alex Berlin 91.0
YES! she asked me about eeeeeverything :*

4th oct: busy writing on my new book "the story of Master Patrick" .... today I wrote about the reason why the weekly Open Studio started ... and how I met wonderful, beautiful ROMY HAAG <3

4th oct: Patrick Bartsch Interview on Green Tea Berlin*

5th oct: question: "tranny" or "Transe" or "what" ?

my wonderful friend Brian <3 who died about two years ago gave me as reaction, when I told him about 4 years ago, that I wrote a book about Berlin and he is also part of it: "you should have made a tranny out of me!"
now I´m writing the new book "the story of Master Patrick". it´s a story about my life with the mask and 70 percent have nothing to do with Brian, but those 30 percent where Brian is part of it. There I want to make his wish come true and will "make a tranny out of him."
BUT now my problem: the word "tranny" and in the german version of the book, the word "Transe" are not political correct. ... but in Brian´s saying the word "tranny" was what he wanted to be ...
Now pls what should I do? which words should I use for Brian? "tranny" or "transgender" and in german: "Transe" oder "Transsexuelle" ?

5th oct: ^^ THE BELL DOESN´T WORK ^^ pls write me before on fb or knock on my door or balcony window*

Patrick Bartsch´s Open Studio is open now*

6th oct: when I was young, then I watched "Platoon"
and today I watched "Zwischen Welten" ... a movie about a group of German soldiers in the war in Afghanistan (year 2014)
both movies are on the same intense level.
nothing has changed in that world.
even not that, that I still watch war from the outside.

I watched the movie, because I want to understand better the people of Afghanistan who came here to Germany.

6th oct: Patrick´s inner monologues: retrospectively I realize how much I lost myself after Brians death in june 2014. with Brians death I lost all my perspective for my own life. I wasn´t able and wasn´t interessted in reaching other people, family, friends and myself. this resulted in a situation that I lived a life out of control for more than two years. I brought myself into dangerous situations and would have accepted any consequences.
about five weeks ago I woke up. For Brian I reserved a place in my heart which belongs to him forever. and I opened myself again for the life ... my life here on that planet. since five weeks I´m sober and even started to do sports. Art ... and especially to paint is the most important work in my life and if you look exactly, then you will realize that there is not really that much passion in the work I did in the past two years. the number one reason for my paintings of the past two years was: to keep myself busy for the reason that I don´t think too much. Thinking too much would have made me crazy and brought my life much more out of control.
Now the book writing has first of all a therapeutic reason. with writing I close a chapter of my life. I need that to get my mind free again.
Further more I get more and more interessted again in life ... in my life with other people, family, friends and myself. that project "100 portraits" which I started recently ... comes from the deepest bottom of my heart. It reflects my new interests in humans, society and the living on that planet.
I started to care again! I started to learn to live a life without Brian <3

7th oct: busy writing on my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... today I wrote about who bought my first painting ... and how I met wonderful Kim Dallesandro <3 and wonderful Matt Lambert <3

7th oct: "Ravel" ballet at the state theatre Schwerin ^^ that looks PHANTASTIC ^^ love the concept and the design of the show <3 (pls watch the video at the link)

7th oct: final spurt with my new book "the story of Master Patrick"

tomorrow I will write the last chapter of the book.
and then 3 more steps to do:
1st: to choose pictures which fit for the book. for that I need to check my photo archive with about 120 000 photographies of the past 13 years.
2nd: to work out the whole book again. to put the photographies together with the right text and doing corrections in the text.
3rd: to translate the book in english, because I wrote it in german language.

... and then I will put BOTH versions on my website www.berlinlosangeles.com (right now you see there the title collage of the book which I wrote in the year 2012, which was named "David Bowie´s Children" and was a book about Berlin and the international creative scene in Berlin)

... so I think in 6 weeks ... perhaps earlier, perhaps later ... the book "the story of Master Patrick" will be able to find there* ... for free :*

8th oct: busy writing on my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... today ... in the last chapter ... I wrote about the reason why I stopped wearing the mask.

8th oct: time for a new painting* ... a painting for the female side in each one of us <3 (INTIMACY)

8th oct: is on the way to the event " The Matter of Absence " in Berghain* <3 Happy Birthday Florian Hetz <3

9th oct: busy working on my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... today I have chosen the first 41 photographies ... such as this one: me as "young Master Patrick" with one of my "slaves" in the year 2005*

10th oct: now it´s one week that I started doing sports at home ... every day ... something*

10th oct: busy working on my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... today I have chosen some more pictures ... such as this one ... one of my DVD covers: when I directed and created movies such as this one* ... running around in Berlin with a full rubber guy* (year 2004)

10th oct: *mmmjjammmmyyyy* that was gooooood =P *yellow caulifower with original ham Prague style ("Prager Schinken") =P

10th oct: question: Is Fetish/SM/Bondage a taboo topic?

*äöhhmmm* ... pls first take a deeeeep breath ... now relax ... and here is the answer: let´s make it short: since one of the most famous photographers Robert Mapplethorpe did his fetish photographies in the 80ies and 90ies. and Madonna picked up that theme with "Erotica" on 20th october 1992 ... Fetish/SM/Bondage is NOT a taboo !!!
When "Erotica" got published ... the WHOLE WORLD talked about it for the following 2 or 3 years !!! at that time I was 18 years old ... and some years later ... I just did that in real life what Madonna showed in her video and "SEX" book.
and today with the book "the story of Master Patrick" I write about it, how my journey was and how the world reacted on me. <= that much simple is it!

love you bitches :* <3

11th oct: one of my favorite buildings in Berlin is burning :( very close to my flat (Europacenter)

11th oct: ... since about 50 years the Mercedes Star on the top of the Europacenter is spinning around. now ... since 10 minutes ... it stands still.
weight of 3 tons and 10 meters diameter ...

11th oct: h34o5gf 43o

I photograph, but I´m not a photographer
I create sculptures, but I´m not a sculptor
I write, but I´m not a writer
I create fashion, but I´m not a fashion designer
I do performances, but I´m not a performer
I make movies, but I´m not a movie maker
I sing, but I´m not a singer
I paint, but I´m not a painter
I write poems, but I´m not a poet
I create art, but I´m not an artist

I´m just an h34o5gf 43o

12th oct: busy working on my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... more pics ... such as this one: Patrick Bartsch aka the young Master Patrick* at that time my slaves did wear my black leather mask*

13th oct: Patrick´s inner monologues: everyone and everything is a painting to me

my view on everyone and everything has changed. I see paintings everywhere. I see different colors. I see my surroundings in layers ... ready to paint. I see your photographies and postings on facebook ... as paintings. and I would wish to paint everyone and everything. I would wish to create 100 paintings and more ... every day. it´s an very intense feeling ... and I love it that way

14th oct: the book "the story of Master Patrick" will be about: Life Love Dreams

exactly three times I was supposed to die (as 7 months old fetus, in the age of 18 and at age 23). I stopped questioning why I´m still alive. I learned to accept death as much as life. and as wisdom I took for myself: "to care about death, when I´m dead and as long as I´m alive, I care about life."
the book will be about:
* making dreams come true.
* ... what "rise like a Phoenix" means in real life.
* living every day as it would be the last one.
* and that "love" is the greatest power for a human being.

the book will be about the life, love and dreams of one person. not more ... and not less.
<3

14th oct: my highlight of the day =D : ^^ WOW ^^ just put my veeeeeery first photo on Instagram* <= finally I got it how it´s working*

15th oct: *sKDJFdlhfwe8* <= that much I understand SNAPCHAT so far xoP , but at least I created an account just right now with "bartschpatrick"

*hmmmmm* are you using it too?

15th oct: busy working on my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... today I have chosen some more pictures ... such as this one, when we did a Mona Lisa photoshooting in the Grunewald*

15th oct: *ääähmmm* if you want to see my latest FRESH paintings ... directly when they are done ... then pls follow me on instagram* because: I like instagram and want to use it more often :* <3

16th oct: busy working on my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... today I have chosen some more pictures ... such as this one, when A M A Z I N G Ades Zabel <3 and A M A Z I N G Francesco De Nittis <3 did a photoshooting with me*

17th oct: my new passion^* now in the third week doing sports ... or better name it "fitness" ... on a daily basis ... at home* ... and it feels reeeaaallllly good*

20th oct: I know that it sounds stupid, but: "rich people who celebrate their wealth with driving Rolls Royce or/and Ferrari" are veeeeery similar to me. as artist and since five years as painter ... I celebrate it being poor. I celebrate it to struggle with my financial situation and non-stop thinking about how to continue as working artist and to paint. <= this feeling puts me in a situation almost all my role models had to life their lifes too (Van Gogh, Caravaggio, ... and YES! I love Ernst Ludwig Kirchner <3 ). Being hungry and being creative about how to continue working is one of the basis of my work.
but of course ... being poor doesn´t need to continue all my life. I mean I have also another role model: Picasso the first self-made artist millionaire*

(in the article which I put in the comments, their is written about how Ernst Ludwig Kirchner used for several paintings the same stretcher frame (because he had no money to buy stuff for new stretcher frames). and this is why recently they discovered another painting under an already known painting.

20th oct: I F*CKING LOOOOOOVE <3 RENEE GRUAU <3

I have never heard that name before. today someone showed me a documentary about that extraordinairy artist. ... and while watching it ... I realized that I used one of his drawings ... 25 years ago ... when at school we needed to create a drink menu ... and for the cover ... I decided to do an interpretation of a drawing I´ve seen in a magazine. all my life ... till today I was wondering who the artist was ... and since today I know his name: <3 RENEE GRUAU <3

21st oct: it was a long dream. in the first part of the dream I was around with some dangerous people. (a situation which I don´t want to discribe now, because it would be veeeery complicated to discribe it). later in that dream I was in a big rustical house with a loooot of wonderful people. it was a kind of private party. I had a good time there. Brian was there too and when our ways crossed at the party, then we hugged eachother for a long time. happy to see eachother. it was clear that we both do miss eachother. without that he asked me, I wishpered in his ear "I have to stay here (with "here" I meant "on that planet") a little bit longer, because I have some work to do." he looked at me that way, where just his eyes talked and meant "I know.". He was on that party for real. it was just me knowing about his magical power and that he was dead. to everyone else he seemed to be alive. we had fun being together. I showed him some photographies which I took while he wasn´t here. on one photography there were to see two people and inbetween of them there was some empty space left. when he saw that picture, then he touched the photography and in that moment his finger reached it, then a hologram of him appeared on the photography. he smiled and said "look here I am on that picture too". I laughed, was happy about it and looked around that no one else sees the magic, because only I knew about his magic. then ... later I asked him if he wants to drink something too. He wanted a beer, but in that moment someone else gave him a beer which someone drank before. Brian took it and was happy about it and gave me a sign that I don´t need to bring a beer for him now. later in that dream I was laying in a bed in a big room and it was that much dark that I could see almost nothing. normally I never stand up in that room. but this time I felt that Brian is in the room and wants me to follow him. So I stood up and walked around in that dark room, just following Brian, whom I couldn´t see too. we went in another room which one was dark too. I told him, that I never walk around there, because it is dark and I can´t see anything. but I trust Brian and when we have been in the other room, then I realized, that someone else came in the room and went to that place where I was laying some minutes before. that person planed to do something bad to me. in that moment I realized, that Brian saved me from a dangerous situtation...

and then I woke up ...
dreams like that .... dreams with Brian-Tennessee Claflin ... I have many times ... and all of them are beautiful <3 we are always happy to meet eachother in my dreams <3 normally he doesn´t want that I talk about those dreams, but tonite ... after some discussions ... he was fine with that, that I write the dream here on facebook

22nd oct: of course no imitate ... it´s the REAL 24 CARAT GOLD which I use for the "100 portraits" paintings in oil on canvas* ... you know that I love you <3

22nd oct: to describe my paintings with my own words: they are colorful sketches in oil on canvas ... of a sense of life which exists in Berlin*

22nd oct: also ich muss das jetzt nochmal für mich in deutsch festhalten! letztendlich verstehe ich deutsch auch besser*
meine heutige Erkenntnis: Meine Gemälde sind nichts anderes als SKIZZEN ... Skizzen wie man diese früher mit dem Kugelschreiber während dem Telefonieren machte! ... und meine Skizzen stellen ganz einfach das Leben in Berlin dar ... und diese Skizzen erstelle ich mit Öl auf Leinwand.

So einfach sind meine Gemälde zu beschreiben!

... lange, lange, laaaaaange habe ich nach einer passenden Beschreibung gesucht*

"Skizzen in Öl auf Leinwand über das Lebensgefühl in Berlin" <= das klingt doch passend und gut*

23rd oct: today I needed to paint again* ... a big one* ... and finally ... after 10 months ... I finished my date paintings 1974 till 2016

23rd aug: .... and today for me: the ^^ LASAGNE ALL I CAN EAT ^^ party =D =P

25th aug: " the story of Master Patrick " ... today I had a wonderful talk with a very interessting guy. He told me, that I should write a book about ... how "wearing my mask" started in 2005 till the end in 2014.
I never thought about it ... but I like the idea ... and I should really do it. I have already 4 finished (unpublished, because I never looked for a publisher and also don´t know how to do it) books in my archiv. and "the story of Master Patrick" should be my fifth one ... and I know already the first 2 words*

25th aug: the book " the story of Master Patrick "

I´m already in full emotions for that book I plan to write in the first weeks of september.
when writing a book ... then the most important thing are the first words, how the book starts ... the second most important thing is the first page. then it is about to write the book in one way. <= that means, that I write on it every day till it´s finished. I start to write in the morning after I woke up and then I write some hours. in the evening I do brainstorming and notice some words ... so I know what to write about on the next day. and I do this for about 2 to 3 weeks.
I mean I´m able to type 2000 letters in 10 minutes. <= this is faster than talking. I love to write books ... because it gives me the possibility to end with a phase of my life. I wrote already a book about my time in Vienna, another one about my first years in Berlin, another one about my years as fetish/sm/bondage master, and another one about my life as artist in general (<= this one is still in work). so this book " the story of Master Patrick " should be my fifth one. but it means also, that I will be buuuuuuuuusyyyyyyy in the first weeks of september ...

26th aug: when nothing becomes everything

sometimes I do nothing ... literally nothing ... sometimes for hours ... sometimes even days & nights
while doing nothing ... something grows deep inside of me ... like a flower or a tree or a volcano
at the end it blossoms ... or explodes ... like a volcano does it.
those are the moments when I create my paintings ... and write my books

OMG I can´t wait to start writing my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... once again and for the last time in my life ... I will go through those years between 2005 and 2014 ... when I was running around in public with a black and golden leather mask ...

28th aug: " old friendships "

I´m 42 years old ... and that age made a very special moment possible: today I met a friend whom I haven´t seen for about 19 years.
at that time we lived together in a big flat in Vienna. then we lost contact and some years ago we found eachother on facebook.
Today we met eachother in Berlin and it was M A G I C ^^ ... a feeling which I never had before.
a lot of things happened in the past 19 years, but when I sat together with him today ... then I realized, that this person remembers me (and how I really am) perhaps better, than I do it by myself.
it was that much constructive and intense ... an good energy which brought me up ... and I´m sure, that this good feeling will last for a while ...

never underestimate the power of "old friendships" <3

30th aug: you have money ... I am poor .......... you go on holidays ... I stay at home and write a book

when I write "poor" (money), then I mean, that normally I have (after paying the basic bills) about 20 to 40 euros for the whole week ... for buying cloths, going on parties,... and right now I have 7 euros for the rest of the week.
it´s my very own decision that I am poor. I decided to go the way of an artist ... the hell hard stony way ... the poor way ... the solitude way ... the way where I get humiliated, ignored, hated ... BUT some of you (and you know who you are <3 :* <3 ) ... you love me ... and you are the glas of water for me ... while I am walking through the desert.

I had years while living here in Berlin, where even I didn´t have enough money to buy an underground ticket to go somewhere. that happened also during my years as "Master Patrick" when I did wear my black leather mask and got invited to some of the most fanciest parties and places in Berlin to meet some of the most fabulous people from that planet. I was fine with that life ...

today I have a regular part time job in a hotel (OH! SURPRISE! SURPRISE! yes. I have a regular job in a hotel which pays my bills and gives me enough spare time to be/live/work as artist.
and beginning on this friday I have 2 weeks holidays =D <= this is the reason, why on friday I will start to write the book "the story of Master Patrick"

pls let me write it that way: I have nothing else to do during my holidays then that what I really want to do: being creative*

1st sept: just started with the brainstorming for my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... it´s very rare that I do journeys into the past of my life ... but when I do it ... then it´s always intense ...

3rd sept: it flows easy ... writing the book "the story of Master Patrick" ... I write and write and write ... but sometimes I need a break, because I write about something very personal ... very intense ... about love, passion, dramas, darkness of the night and sunshine during the day* this picture I took of a friend of mine in 2003 when I lived in Cologne* this is where I am right now with writing the book. he is wearing the mask, which one I should wear some years later in public in Berlin ...

3rd sept: sometimes ... some flowers ... are especially beautiful ... in my garden ... *ääööhmm* I mean balcony Berlin style <3 ... those little yellow roses grow very beautiful <3 ... it´s the first time that I have roses growing in my "garden" and I love them <3 a loooot <3 when I smell them, then sometimes even they let me forget for a second that I life in a dangerous redlight district*

4th sept: today I wrote about my first year in Berlin ... in my first flat in Wedding ... and my first exhibition* at that time eeeeeeverything was new&exciting to me* ... in 2004/2005

6th sept: ach übrigens: RESPEKT!

AfD, AfD, AfD

nur mal so nebenbei: hier in Deutschland wird zur Zeit so ziemlich jeder beschimpft, welcher politisch eine andere Meinung vertritt.
Man tendiert zu Verallgemeinerungen, wie "die aus Mecklenburg-Vorpommern", "die Alten", usw.
und/oder man beschimpft gleich direkt: versucht Menschen mit anderen Meinungen mundtot zu machen, wobei hier ALLE rethorischen Mittel erlaubt sind! wie zum Beispiel erst kürzlich über Alice Schwarzer gelesen wie sie jemand als "nicht mehr so helles Köpfchen" beschrieb.

Ich denke mir dabei immer wieder: WAS SOLL DAS EIGENTLICH!? Diese Respektlosigkeit gegenüber Menschen welche Öffentlich ihre eigene Meinung kundtun!

... und übrigens: nicht jeder welcher am Anfang eines Postings 3mal "AfD" schreibt ist auch automatisch ein Sympathisant dieser Partei!

6th sept: ^^ lentils with sausage ^^ after 8 hours on the stove *hmmmppppffff*
pls any recommendations what I should do with that pot? should I put directly in the trash or is there any possibility to "clean" that?
... and yes! I think this happened to all of us =OP
... and how do I get that terrible smell out of my flat ????

7th sept: I know that something FIERCE is gonna happen :* <3 YhaYha x ICKY <3

8th sept: busy writing on my new book "the story of Master Patrick" ... today I wrote about my first appearance in public at TeddyAward/Berlinale 2006 ^^*

12th sept: Instagram ... and I can´t wait to use it

16th sept: moments ... sometimes ... change the whole life

about 3 weeks ago a guy wrote me on gayromeo (whoooiii* yes! I´m also on gayromeo =P ). I haven´t met someone from there since yeeeeaaars. but this time it was a guy who seemed to be nice AND he lives about 3 minutes walk away from my flat. I went there and it was perfect ... a perfect sexy guy ... perfect sex ... and nothing more which could have made it complicated.
on the way home I met wonderful Florian Hetz on the street and it was the first time that we talked to eachother, even I know about his existence since about 10 years. we had a wonderful talk and he gave me the idea to write a book about my years with the mask. Never before I had the idea to do that, but I felt very comfortable with that idea. ... and on the following day I started to write.

in the past months I didn´t feel very well and because of that I drank sometimes too much and took also other stuff (and too much of it). I did some months of "hard partying". about two weeks ago I felt asleep after I did party for about 30 hours, when I had a pot on my stove. when I woke up ... about 8 hours later ... everything inside the pot was burnt in and I realized, that I almost burnt down my flat. it was sign enough to stop with drinking alcohol and other stuff. ... and the best thing about it, is: that with writing the book I found something which really got me ... in a good way. I´m happy with that ... with the writing and take everything which should come (or not) after I publish it in some weeks and of course for free and I will put the link here for you on fb.
now I´m sober since almost exactly 10 days and it feels good ... I miss nothing ... because I have something new, which excites me more.
and everything started with a message on gayromeo, which made me stand up from my couch. ...

... moments ... sometimes ... change the whole life*
