Hey there, Internet!

Monthly Post of Random Pictures / Thoughts & Questions / Links and other things that happened during the past month (or since writing last random post) and would not fit into another post…

Just wishing for spring, running out of feathers for decoration / art and jewelry…

Maybe these thoughts / questions would be useful as inspiration or someone knows the answer? (If none of these, hopefully at least they would be entertaining.)

list-bat-png Another festival died, sad to see you go, Dark Munich Festival!
list-bat-png On that topic – 2016 was supposed to be better than 2015, now we already lost David Bowie, (& Dec, 28th Lemmy Kilmister) and a lot of actors that made us enjoy ‘the old’ horror movies this month as well as Professor Snape / Alan Rickman. Seriously, 2016, stop. Someone please tell the grim reaper he is using the wrong list.
list-bat-png Sorry for the person who came to my blog while searching for ‘diy scarification with pen‘ – I do have a scarification but it was done professional with scalpel (see blogpost ‘Bodymods: Scarification‘) but seriously why would anyone do stuff like this to themselves with a pen, are you ignoring the dangers of infection and simply looking for cheap bodymodifications?
list-bat-png The already amazing Lineup for M’era Luna 2016 got even better: Eisbrecher! My ticket is already waiting at home!
list-bat-png Stopped caring about grey boarders, list-bats moved in. (seems it is more of a browser thing instead of coding. Nothing I can change so nothing I will worry about.)

And here are my most favourite / inspiring posts from other blogs / websites this month:

list-bat-png Jamila at thisizapen shares some thoughts that probably every blogger has thought about at a time: Should you tell people about your blog?
list-bat-png Samm Sanity did a post on Blood, Lace and Faeries showing her way of DIY shirt to dress, once more I’m happy to see all the different ways people alter clothes!
list-bat-png Looking at the past in a different way! Lovely and kind of emotional picture post (The Mindroom) at de.lirium
list-bat-png A great article on styleBizarre covering alt fashion and subcultures in general: What everybody should know about alternative fashion.

Most played songs this month:

list-bat-png Voodooma – Rebirth
list-bat-png Faderhead – The Silence Around Me (Is available for Kickstarter backers for his next Album, FH X. This song instantly made its way to my favourites!)
list-bat-png Andi Sex Gang – Divinely Nero
list-bat-png Lacrimosa – Make It End (Live)
list-bat-png Batlord – I know what you’re doing

Plans for the next month:

list-bat-png Bodymods: January changed a few things for me, plucked entire eyebrows again, got my left nostril re-pierced, been talking to team cyborg some more (next step will be talking to my boss if I can book my trip to London 2017 early or if I have to wait for the regular vacation meeting in late 2016 which though might be a bit too late to fix a date… Struggles.) And also been talking to a local tattoo artist about my chest piece which most probably will be done this summer so I guess that is enough in Bodymodification for both months. Batfit: 30 minutes workout every second day is achieved as well as 500ml water each day, time to go for 45 minute workout and 750ml water (slow changes but easier to  change habits this way)
list-bat-png Cave: Finish the Hallway. Only needs a bit more decoration and tiny pieces / changes, happy to see this!
list-bat-png Events: Matrix, Bochum for EOD (Empire of Darkness party) and Faderhead gig before. It has been some time since I went there so I am wondering if it changed…? Especially since EOD will celebrate its 16th anniversary!
list-bat-png Blog: Think of some nice giveaway for Juskeepbrains Blogversary at the end of February, any ideas? Please comment below! Plus finally doing the two videos that were supposed to be done this month 😄

What has been inspiring for you this January? Any plans for February? Have a nice evening!
