Rock am See

Visited the Rock am See Openair Festival. The weather was perfect, almost too hot. The atmosphere and the bands were first class. The only minor problems occurred at the border, which we crossed on foot, the customs officer decided that we looked too suspicious and controlled us, it seemed that he had especially something against me, he asked me the most questions... but since I'm such a nice person he had to let me pass ;-) .

We almost missed the first band "Strung Out", but it wasn't that special, same with "Everlast" who followed. Then came the first highlight: "Papa Roach", they played a great set including a few songs from their forthcoming third album.
Next was "The Beatsteaks", during who's performance we relaxed a bit.
Then came "Sportfreunde Stiller" another act I was looking forward to, since I didn't manage to get a ticket for their show in Spring...
"Velvet Revolver" was surprisingly good, I haven't heard a lot of them before, but they looked a bit like a mixture of Metallica and the Village People on stage :-) .
Last came "Die Ärzte", they played for 2.25 hours, it was an incredible set and the crowd was going mad.
At the end I was extremely tired but extremely glad to have attended. Just before I left I went back to one of the stalls to buy the new album of Papa Roach, which only hits the stores on Tuesday.

Oerli-Con 2004

Visited the Oerli-Con this weekend, that's a weekend full of roleplaying and other games.

I had almost no sleep but it was worth it!

On Friday I mastered a Zombie-Survival roleplaying game. The players discussed a bit too much and almost got themselves killed, in the end they managed to finish the game with all members still alive. Afterwards I played a couple of card games till 6 o'clock in the morning.

3 hours of sleep later: We played a cool card game called "Kreml", there you try to control 10 politicians, the one who is president at the end wins the game.
Then I played in a game inspired by the movie "Starship Troopers", which was very interesting.
After a couple of boardgames I participated in a Living Greyhawk (a world in Dungeons & Dragons) campaign. Then it was again Board- and Card-games till 7 am.

4 hours of sleep later: The con officially ended at 10am so I helped a bit with cleaning up. Afterwards we played another round of D&D till 5.30pm and then it was homewards...

I'm looking forward to next year. :-)

Europapark Rust

I've spent a day at Europapark Rust, the weather was perfect and thus there were quite a lot of people. Still, it was a great day. Especially the new roller coaster "Silverstar" was just awesome!!!! It reaches speeds of up to 130 km/h and you can feel that, especially in the first row :-).
