Trips: Germany: Hi Richie

A small cocktail bar in Stuttgart. Good menu, good prices. A good night out. So there I was, mumbling about the missing long island and looking with the corner of my eye to the reaction of my companion while reading different names of cocktails. Yes, he is a weirdo uptight asshole if he wants to. I start with a vodka martini. Have to say had a way better one in the Munich train station. Topics for the evening: 1. an apartment..bla bla mambo jambo..houses as usual 2. why if a man drinks a cosmo or sex on the beach is automatically gay. Well because man should drink plain vodka or tequila or just stick to beer and they seem more manly when puking than when holding that beautiful shaped cosmo glass. Plus it's pink. Plus the pinky. 3. world hunger, Earth hour, war for peace and give piss a chance. Plus the context of being high when thinking about all these topics. That is a topic by itslef 4. how legal is weed in germany: NEVER. Don't even dare to think about it. They will know. 5....Hi, i'm Richie A wasted dude in his 23s, with a look of a very lost in time and translation person..come on we have all been there...sits next to my friend, let's call my friend somehow. Ideas? No? Let's call him..Frank...or Konrad...Ulf? So I see a hand going towards Konrad and a voice saying: Hallo, ich bin Richie. Don't imagine we were breathing when he tried to avoid the table and the people around it to sit on the couch. Was like a very difficult circus number. Richie - Konrad, Konrad- Richie. Points: 1. screaming even if the music is not loud makes him sure that he can be heard 2. screaming next to Konrad's face makes him sure that the person he is screaming at is still there 3. screaming at his friend for cigs. 4. touching Konrad ...for a long time ...makes him sure that what? Well he was a touchy guy Oh...wait...Hi ich bin Richie. Hi, ich bin Konrad. So the discussion starts all over again. I bet he will forget again so I advise Kornad to answer as well with the name Richie at the next introduction. Another dude is touched, then Richie remembers he is into girls. There I am noticed. Yay! His impressions: 1. I look like 33. As a man even drunk, it's the worst thing to go to a girl and try to get her into you by calling her older than she really is. 2. Konrad sucks as he is old. Richie is young, so must like Richie 3. Prague is nice. he proposed to his fiance (AHA) on the Charles bridge. And is very close to Stuttgart 3.1. I am a liar that I say it took me 7 hours to get here. He made it in 1.5 h by car. That means 506km, average speed 380km/h. Stupid us not to own a Batmobil. 4. He will go hit on other ladies. They all panic. We all pray he goes to puke somewhere. Overall a nice quiet evening isn't it? Nevertheless haven't laughed like that in some time so it was not a total loss. Plus the basil cocktail that actually tasted very good.

"The Vegas Scene Gets Britney Jean"

On Sara Alina

Britney Spears, a girl who gave us some of the best pop hits of all time. An Icon .......... A Pop Princess. Even at her lows, the love for her still endured and sill endures, as she continues to sell out arenas and top the charts. I mean who doesn't love Britney Spears. For many, she holds the memories of childhood, paired next to the boy band frenzy and Christina Aguilera, in her "Genie in a bottle" days. She has grown up with us, and we have grown with her, as she transitioned from a little girl to a grown woman.

If you haven't seen her in concert yet, I highly recommend it, but there is no use in waiting for her tour to come around. No, don't worry she's not retiring; Britney just signed a huge deal for the next two years, as a recurring show in the fabulous LAS VEGAS. That's right, move over Celine Dion, Shania Twain, and Rod Stewart, Britney is in the Planet Hollywood building! As you can guess, she is also receiving a pretty hefty allowance, at 300, 000 per show and 30 million for the next set of shows in 2015. Britney Spears is perfect for what Vegas has been transitioning into for the last few years. Now, Vegas is seeing a younger demographic coming in to "Sin City" to party, and not so much coming for the casinos. So, you have two years to head to the "younger Las Vegas" and check out Britney Spears to hear her classic oldies, and the new "Britney Jean" album goodies.
