Cirque du Soleil's Music Concert 'Delirium' Video

Cirque du Soleil's music concert and arena show "Delirum" is now running in Movie Theatres. You cannot see the show live anymore, because it is finished touring.

However, you can see it on the Big screen at the moment and hopefully soon on DVD.

I finally got around creating a longer sneak preview video, which I had on my to-do list for some time already. The news that the show stopped touring and is now shown in movie theaters made me realize that it won't be for long anymore and a DVD will be available and no need for me to spend time on editing together a nice video hehe.

So here it is now, a 28 minutes long sneak preview of some segments of the show. I think it is a record... yes, it is. The "O" and "Mystere" videos were "only" 21 and 22 minutes long.

As a special bonus, both, the handbalancing (Andrey Koltsov) and hoola hoops (Irina Akimova) acts are covered completly (yeah! hehe). Editing video on a PC is still a bitch and it took me longer than I wanted to. Not the editing, but the rendering of the final video :(. God, I hate this "codec", "DirectShow Filters", "Video for Windows" crap and all the problems that come with it.

You can also download the entire video in 400x300 resolution and .AVI format from here. Other Cirque du Soleil videos of mine can also be downloaded. See a complete list at this URL.

A side note about my blog here at

Have a look to the right side and you will notice a new text box below the text box for the email subscription to my posts via Feedburner.

It's a new search feature for my blog. It only searches my blog and not the rest of the website.

I use Google's Custom Search Engine (CSE) for it and tweaked it to make the results even more relevant. I excluded the "category" pages and the homepage for example. It should actually only search and return blog post pages, if I did everything right and as I wanted it to be. The Category pages and homepage tend to rank high in Google, but they are not that much helpful, especially if you are looking for something specific. :)

So check it out and let me know how it works for you. I am thinking about creating a second CSE for the rest of the site, which is also getting bigger and harder to navigate every day.

Enjoy and Cheers!

Think Different! Be Different!

In case you did not notice, I started blogging a little bit more about political and social subjects recently. There is a reason for it. I spent more time thinking about the things that happened in this world. I did't say that I wasn't thinking about those things in the past, I just say that I did spend more time than usual.

See for example my longer posts about the Crazy Horse Memorial, the Berlin Wall or Nationalism and Blind Obedience to your Government.

This also lead me to create a category at my blog titled "Politics" where I attached all those (more or less) politics related blog posts of mine (including past blog posts from last year or the year before that).

Well that's enough for an intro :).

I stumbled recently across a cool Apple Computers commercial that I don't remeber seen on TV, but that has nothing to say, since I did not watch TV really during the past 1-2 years or so.. thanks to the Internet hehe.

This is IMHO the best Apple Computers commercial of all times and one of the best commercial of all time in general too. Well, and if there is one thing that you can say about the Apple CEO Steve Jobs, then it would be "Yeah, He thinks different!".

The message of the video is clear:

Follow your instinct and ignore what other people might say. The people who thought different and were called all kinds of words by the people during their lifetime are the ones who actually did change the world (for the better or worst).

Changes happen because of people who do not comply with old rules and established thinking and follow through with their ideas and believes regardless of the problems they got as a result of it.

Backup Link to Video at

The text of the video goes as follows.

Here is to the crazy ones,
the misfits, the rebels,
the trouble makers,
the round pigs in the square holes,
the ones who see things differently.
They are not fond of rules
and they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them,
but the only thing you can't do...
is ignore them,
because they change things.

They push the human race forward.

And while some might see them as the crazy ones,
we see genius,
because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world,
are the ones who do.

Think Different!

Great stuff. Heads up to who came up with this.

Cirque du Soleil & Criss Angel's 'Believe' - A Special Sneak Preview

The news that the new Cirque du Soleil show with the (in)famous magician Criss Angel with the title "Believe" will premier much later than it was originally planned was bad, but there was nothing that could be done about it.

There is only about 1 1/2 months to go until the current premier date and the Cirque is already on "promo tour", which is a good sign. You do not go on promo tour, if you are in trouble and far behind schedule, risking further delays... no, you would be back "home" and work overtime, weekends and holidays to get the thing done on the date you said it would be done.

Well, 16 dancers of the new show and their ceographer were sighted in Los Angeles, California a few days ago. They gave a special performance at the event "So you think you can dance?" and a first real sneak peak of the new Criss Angel show ever, actual footage from the show itself, no talks, no stills, drawings and models.. nope, the real deal this time.

It shows the actual performance to get a glimpse of the things to come, when the new show finally premiers in October 2008 at the Luxor hotel and casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This performance was aired on TV on Fox and somebody was kind enough to record it/Tivo it and upload the whole thing to his favorite video sharing website, where I picked it up. I also found a mini-documentary video, officially by the Cirque itself that shows "behind the scene" footage of this special performance called "All in a Day's Work".

I grabbed that one too. Then there was also the very first show teaser that was released.. no show footage (unfortunately), but you cannot have everything you wish for all the time.

Anyhow, I grabbed those 3 videos and added some stuff from a fourth one and some images for a mini video slideshow, with music from the actual show in the background, to round up my video version of all this.

All in all some entertaining 7:22 minutes to enjoy.

You can download this video in higher 640x480 resolution and in .AVI format at here.

Copyleft vs Public Domain

When I released my artwork on July 6, 2006 into the public domain, I assumed that this automatically implies that copies and derivations of it can also not be copyrighted. I just learned recently that this is not the case.

Since this was not intended by my original declaration, I did modify my declaration and the disclaimer in all detail pages of my artwork that became property of the general public. I am not a lawyer, so I assume that this refinement of my declaration will be okay. I also assume that this updated declaration cannot apply to events that happened between July 6, 2006 and today, August 24, 2008.

With this change did also the logo change. Instead of the strikethrough "c" logo is not the flipped "c" logo displayed with the license. What now follows is the old and new disclaimer to illustrate what changed.

Cirque du Soleil's Delirium Coming to Movie Theaters

Some good, but not entirely unexpected news, at least half of it.

Cirque du Soleil and Sony Pictures announced a few days ago the release of the Cirque du Soleil concert show for the big screen in movie theaters. It will be released this month (they made the announcement on very short notice).

This probably means that we can expect a DVD release of the show by Christmas this year or latest by Spring 2009. I would be surprised, if they would not release it this year already. Christmas would be perfect to get a piece of the holiday business.

I am not surprised about the availability of a recorded version of the show, the Cirque did that with other shows that were not resident shows in the past already (with exception of "La Nouba"), including "Corteo" and "Varekai". It should not be for long until a video of the touring show "Kooza" will become available on DVD. I do not recall though that they had the recordings running in Movie Theaters prior the DVD release. That's a first as far as I know.

Here is the trailer for the Movie release, coming to selected Movie Theaters near you.

Backup Link to Video on

For more Cirque du Soleil visit my Cirque du Soleil primer. Also check out my YouTube channel about Cirque du Soleil and performing arts in general.

This announcement also reminded me on working on a longer preview video of the show. I got many video snippets and have the official soundtrack CDs. I need to sit down and spend the time to create a nice little teaser as I did for other Cirque shows, such as "O" and "Mystere" to name the shows where I was able to create a 20+ minutes teaser and "Zumanity", "Kooza" and "KA" where I was able to create 7=10 minutes long teasers. All of those mentioned videos are available through my YouTube channel and also referenced in my Cirque du Soleil Primer article.

Mount Rushmore Square

I created a short 12+ minutes long video about the little known Crazy Horse Memorial in the Black Hills Mountains of South Dakota.

I edited together the 3 minutes intro part of it, which is then followed by an about 10 minutes long mini documentary about the project.

You can download the video in .AVI format and 640x480 pixels resolution (259 MB) free from my account.

Backup link to video at Google Video

The yet unfinished Crazy Horse Memorial mountain carving is located less than 30 minutes from the famous Mount Rushmore Presidential Memorial where the heads of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln were carved into the mountain rock for the eternity.

The Crazy Horse mountain carving dwarfs the impressive Mt.Rushmore one in size and scale.

Also the time to create it is an eternity compared to the Mt.Rushmore project. The sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski started working on it on June 3, 1948 and it is still far from being finished today.

In contradiction to the the better known and federal funded Mt.Rushmore project is the Crazy Horse project entirely funded by the people who donate time, resources and money and by the admission to the visitor center and North American Indian Museum, which is located at the mountain base.

The Admission is either $10 per person (children under 6 free) or $27 per car load, whichever is better for you, for visitors with a car or $5 per person on foot, bicycle or motorcycle.

The museum is an attraction in its own rights already and thanks to that did admission and funding increase and with it the amount of progress that is being made at the mountain.

There is also an university and even an airport planned for all Native Americans of North America.

To put its size in perspective... The entire carving of Mt.Rushmore fits into the head of Crazy Horse, which is only one segment of the whole sculptor, which will also include part of Crazy Horses' upper body, his arms and the head of his horse.

It will be taller than the Washington monument in Washington DC. The stretched out arm will be as long as a football field and enough room for 4,000 people to stand on it.

The Black Hills are holy to the Lakota indians (which is part of the Sioux tribe) and I presume that they were not very happy about the White mens carvings that took place betwen 1927 and 1941.

It must have been like a slap into their face, while they were already on their knees, robbed of their land and cooped into small reservations with less than adequate supply of the basics things to live, but barely enough to survive, at least some of them.

There was nothing they could have done. The would not have been another Little Big Horn, but only another Wounded Knee or worse.

The Crazy Horse Memorial is their answer, slowly, but loud and clear. A slap back into the face of the white man to hurt his pride.

Bigger and better... something that the natives learned and adopted from the white man.

Thanks to the German author Karl May, who has never been to the United States and whos novels about the wild west were and are very popular in Germany, despite their historic inaccuracies, I did became interested into the story of the North American indian already when I was a young boy.

I probably learned more about them as American boys get taught about them in school, which is a shame all by itself. Well, I played "Cowboys and Indians" in Germany too, but in contradiction to when the American kids played this game, the Indians were the good guys and not the bad.

Mt.Rushmore was the most Eastern point of the road trip with my parents and my older sister in April 2004.

My sister knew more about stuff that was going on with the Native Americans today than I did. I didn't even know about the Crazy Horse project until we got to Keystone, South Dakota and my sister mentioned it.

Its location right around the corner made it a perfect secondary destination after Mt.Rushmore. Well, we spent about 30 minutes at Mt.Rushmore and then far over 2 hours at the Crazy Horse Memorial.. so the primary and secondary destination traded spaces while we were in the Black Hills Mountains.

As a good American you have Mt.Rushmore probably on the list of things to see at least once during your lifetime. If you get around to go to the Black Hills one day, make sure that you pay a visit to the Crazy Horse Memorial and North American Indian Museum as well.

Pictures from my 2004 road-trip, which includes many pictures of Mt.Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial are available at my Google Picasa account. Here are the links to album 1 and album 2 about this trip.

I hope that you learned something interesting today, which hopefully also refreshed some old memories and put things into the right perspective again. Enjoy!

Democracy Still Works... Sometimes

An unusual short blog post, but there is not much more to say and no need to comment. If you have not been living on the moon during the past years, then you should have enough facts and information to know what you have to do.

The democratic system of this country might be flawed, but it is not entirely misfunctioning yet. Some parts still work. Make them count! ... and forget political colors this time, because it will not change the facts, regardless if the words come out of a "blue" or a "red mouth".

Signing off...

The Berlin Wall and the Walls between Us

I created an extended version of my video about the Berlin Wall. I was born and grew up in Berlin and was 15 years old when the Wall finally fell on November 9th, 1989.

It's a personal subject, as for all Germans, especially Berliners who were affected by it the most. It will be soon 20 years, in one year and a few months, since this historic event occurred. It seems to me a long time ago, although I have many vivid memories of events from back then that seem to have happened only recently.

Maybe the global events of the past few years that are IMO disturbing and the parallel development of a global sense and community because of the Internet, which attempt to counter those negative events, brought some of my old memories back into my mind.

I never felt compelled before to talk or write about the historic events that happened in my hometown and which I was able (in part) to witness myself. I never owned or wanted to own a piece of the Wall, which is not unusual for a child of that city. I would say that you probably will have a hard time to find a Berliner who has a piece of the Wall, if you would start looking for one. I am pretty sure about that.

Something changed my attitude towards the subject and I am not 100% sure what and why. I got the feeling that telling the story and facts out of the mouth of somebody who knows personally a bit about it carries more weight and that telling the story became more and more important.

Remember history, because history tends to repeat itself! That is an old and true saying. It is especially true unfortunately, for things that should not be repeated at all, but people forgot about how bad it was over time and then allowed it to happen again.

Maybe it's the creation or fortification and militarization of new and existing Walls that were and are being erected between people at many places around the world. Walls are bad, they separate and isolate. They segment people who should not be segmented. Walls that separate families or big group of people are causing suffering, pain and even death.

Most Walls are unnecessary and should not be erected and it only happens, because people allow it to happen. If people would say "no more", those Walls would fall and crumble, just like the Berlin Wall did in 1989. The Berlin Wall example also shows that Walls can be torn down without violence or war.

Berlin Wall - Lessons Learned

My video is 13 minutes in length and contains material of over 30 video and audio sources and over 70 images and over 470 words of text annotation and caption. Feel free to share and distribute it.

The Story
A journalist from the West German newspaper "Frankfurter Rundschau" asked the question, if the creation of a "Free East Berlin" means that a border will be erected at the Brandenburg Gate.

The East German Head of State "Walter Ulbricht" responded to this question with the following...

"I understand your question like that there are people in West Germany who wish that we mobilize the construction workers of the capital of the GDR to erect a wall, yes?

I am not aware of such intention, but that the construction workers of the capital are mainly busy with the construction of homes and that the available man power is used entirely ...

Nobody has the intention to build a wall."

That statement was a straight and convenient lie. During the night of 12-13 August 1961, a barbed-wire entanglement was hastily constructed through the heart of Berlin.

Just two days before the barrier was erected 1,500 refugees had moved to West Berlin. Watchtowers punctuated the city limits and the temporary barbed-wire constructions were soon replaced with concrete. Within a year the Wall was seven and half miles long and fences stretched the remaining 91.7 miles around the city.

The wire fence and small brick wall segments were replaced in 1965 with a concrete wall. Between 1975 and 1980 the final and most sophisticated version of the concrete wall was built. It was made up of 12ft tall and 4ft wide reinforced concrete segments and the top lined with smooth pipe made of concrete to make it harder to climb.

Border Guards had the order to shoot anybody who attempted to cross the border and ignored the guards order to stop. Over 200 people who tried it died.

The wall fell on November, 9th 1989 without a single shot being fired or anybody getting injured. The first segments of the wall were demolished within the first few weeks.

Within a few years only very little remains of the Wall were left and had to be preserved be declaring them a historic monument that is not to be demolished.

The largest remaining segment of the Wall is the "East Side Gallery" near the Oberbaumbrücke along the Spree River. Another segment can be found north of Bernauer Straße. The third and last segment still in existence is located at the location of the former Gestapo head quarters between "Checkpoint Charlie" and "Potsdamer Platz".

The Berlin Wall separated physically and spiritually families, friends and fellow Germans for 28 years. It was causing hundreds of deaths and inflicted pain and suffering for millions of people of two generations.

Much good information can be found at a special section of the website. It's available in SIX different languages, German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Russian.

Over 100,000 people attempted to cross the border between East Germany and West Germany or East Berlin and West Berlin between 1949 and 1989.

About 1,000 people died. Not all deaths are the result of shootings, many drowned, suffocated or died as a result of hitting a land mine or triggering a spring gun, which were installed by the East German border guards to prevent border crossings.

The first victim of the Berlin Wall was Ida Siekmann on 22th August 1961 who died as a result of her injuries caused by her jump out of a Window at the Bernauer Strasse where buildings were in the middle of the border itself, one side belonging to East Berlin and the other to West Berlin.

The first victim shot at the Berlin Wall was Günter Litfin, who was killed on 24th August 1961. The last victim shot at the Wall was 20 years old Chris Gueffroy, who was killed on 5th February 1989.

The probably most gruesome death was the shooting of Peter Fechter on 17th August 1962, who was lying for one hour crying for help at the "Death Strip" near Checkpoint Charlie, in front of allied and West Berlin police, who could only watch helpless how Peter was bleeding to death before their eyes.

The border guards got trained to shoot at the legs to prevent the escapee from crossing the border, but hitting the legs with a fully automatic AK-47 over the distance of 200 yards or more is almost impossible to do. Because of the significant dispersion rate of the AK-47 was it easy to hit the head of a moving target, even if you aim at the feet.

Many more border guards did not shoot as they were ordered to do, shot after the escapee was already gone or aimed deliberately off the target to miss.

Some who did this were just mildly punished, however, some ended up in military prison for violation of article 262 of the East German criminal code of law (Paragraph 262 im Kapitel des DDR-Strafgesetzbuches über das Militärstrafrecht).

Border guards also had the order not to shot at Children, Women and on West Berlin Territory, also not at "three targets", a law that has its roots in Prussian military conduct. Guards usually were ordered to shout "Halt" (Stop) and fire a warning shot into the air first, before shooting at the target directly, but there exist files from the East German secret police, the Staatssicherheit or short STASI, which contradicted and violated those rules. A special unit of the Stasi operated covertly within the border guard units to prevent desertion of border guards. (Souce: Spiegel)

Also the fear of being shot at was not unreasonable. A number of East German border guards were shot at and killed by either the escapee itself or one of the helpers from West Germany or West Berlin.

The first border guard killed after the building of the Berlin Wall was Jörgen Schmidtchen, who was shot by two of his deserting comrades on 18th April 1962.

The exact number of deaths is unknown and varies depending on the source and over time. Here are some of the figures.

  • State Attorney of Berlin (Staatsanwaltschaft Berlin): 86/169
  • Inspector General of Berlin (Der Polizeipräsident von Berlin): at least 92
  • Central registration office Salzgitter (Zentrale Erfassungsstelle Salzgitter): 114
  • Central Auditing Agency for Government and Reunion delinquency (Zentrale Ermittlungsstelle für Regierungs- und Vereinigungskriminalität): 122
  • Work Group "13th August" (Arbeitsgemeinschaft 13. August): over 200
  • "Victims of the Wall" (Opfer der Mauer) by Werner Filmer and Heribert Schwan based on research at the Strausberg military archives: 216

The Museum at Checkpoint Charlie (Museum Haus am Checkpoint Charlie) published: 1,065 Border and Wall deaths

Breakdown with deaths before / after 13th August 1961
  • Killed at the Berlin border (incl. Wall): 37 / 190
  • Killed at German/German border: 247 / 237
  • Killed/Died at Baltic Sea border: 17 / 164
  • Killed border guards: 18 / 19
  • Other deaths (incl. off East German ground): 59 / 77

People have names and each name has a story. Just mentioning figures is cold and without feelings. That should not be... here are the names of 136 identified and verified deaths (as of 1th August 2008) and the year when they died forcefully before their time.
