Maybe It's Because He's A Londoner?

...that he sings of her
whenever he's here...

Ladies and Gentlemen: Meet "that 'Streets of London' guy" from Fürth - Richard Smerin by name. He has over two hundred original songs to his credit and proves it on his web page, it's just that he chooses to stick to his trademark one when he's playing downtown Nuremberg's pedestrian zone. I'm glad I finally found out his name last spring - he's also got sixteen CDs (as of May 2016) on sale, you just have to ask! Well, sometimes you don't ;)

The Martian Interview

Still way up on the New York Times's best seller list: Andy Weir's "The Martian" - the movie's coming out next month... and I had the honor of interviewing the author for "Star Tracks" recently; if you're interested, have a look at (the interview is in English although the rest of the article is in German - just click on the last link for a transcript in English and the third from the bottom to access an audio recording of the show). You should, of course, check out the book & film, too, if you're so inclined ;)

Begin Day Watch

Hello world. After quite a long time of hiatus, I've decided to give this blog another shot. Have a nice start of term, everyone at WEG and elsewhere! ;)
