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…

1603 drawing sketch fanart noelpix 1603 gothic stomping boots used wornout 1603 gothic jewelry silver belt macro detail

Quite B/W this month! And a lot of sketches were done…

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 March, 5th = Absinthe day? Need to save in calendar for next year!
list-bat-png Amphi festival will be back at Tanzbrunnen instead of Lanxess Arena, I think it is some good news. A lot of people said they preferred the old location, some though were happy with the indoor stage the new location had… Sadly my holiday schedule is already handed in but maybe I can go there for one day?
list-bat-png The Rogue and The Wolf just launched their SS16 collection, The Okkultist! Lots of new pretty 3D-printed pieces in good quality (see review post). The days after this point was written my inbox was flooded with other companies that released their new collections, yay spring, yay spending money we don’t have!
list-bat-png Moments of happiness, sometimes are caused by the tiniest things (see me walking through my tiny hallway, I always pause for a second and start smiling!)
list-bat-png Caffeine Addiction! Had to spend the Sunday after the Eisbrecher concert without any coffee (coffee pot broke and my machine refuses to work without it) or energy drink (last one was used while driving back home AND pocket coffee sweets were also empty.) Bad time and supply management but I was a bit shocked how much my body and brain were in need of caffeine. Still managed to survive without heading to the gas station to buy the horribly expensive ones)
list-bat-png Why do people claim other peoples art / work to be their own and even are sticking to their words when proven wrong?

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

list-bat-png Goth Isn’t About Race – THIS! I will never be able to understand why anone thinks he / she has the right to say someone is not allowed to be (like / do / whatever) for any stupid reason.
list-bat-png Trigger for every book addict, Cookie shared pictures of her beautiful decorated and perfectly well stocked bookshelves (and some other nice things that are written in German though) in her post: Life in a Week No 3/16
list-bat-png Faderhead in one of his latest newsletters was talking about social media and taking a break from them for a few days. If you have a few seconds I can highly recommend to subscribe to his weekly newsletter! (you can do that on his website / blog thingie!) For anyone wondering, I am very much pro social media limit (mine is 1hr / day) and a few days off sometimes as well…

Most played songs this month:

list-bat-png Jesus on Extasy – Beloved Enemy
list-bat-png Poison Black – Exciter
list-bat-png Eisbrecher – Heilig
list-bat-png Covenant – Dead Stars (Radio Version)
list-bat-png Joy Division – Isolation

Plans for the next month:

list-bat-png Batfit: 30 min yoga each day plus 2 days workout, 1 day off seems to work just fine! As for food / drink it seems I found a routine that works for me as well!
list-bat-png Bodymods: Since I passed on them in March, Lobes! Need some space for silver jewelry before the ear pointing will happen… (Even if that won’t happen before 2017)
list-bat-png Cave: Continue working on kitchen and bathroom as well as the hunt for some makeup & accessorie storage! Oh and plants!
list-bat-png Events: A friend of mine will celebrate his 30th bday and I guess that means a party weekend that should maybe be enough for the month already, some lazy evenings before wgt in may would actually be nice!
list-bat-png Blog: I finally want to get back on schedule and catch up on all your comments!

What has been inspiring for you this March? Any plans for April? Have a nice evening!

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…

1602 newdocmartens drmartens white patentleather workingboots stomping goth 1602 heksehyl liquorice salmiak teufelfinger devilsfingers 1602 gothic corset blackwhite velvet

New working boots! Still… Anyone knows how to wear in new doc martens without getting blisters?!

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 Justkeepbrains.com turned 1 year! Feels like yesterday that I decided to start blogging again, thank you to everyone who I’ve ‘met’ during this year and during the time back on blogspot as well! Can’t say it too often how much like a family the blogosphere means to me! Got to know so many inspiring people as well as some really close friends this way! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
list-bat-png Tiny changes sometimes are needed, signature picture added! (Yes, I know I still need to re-design the menue)
list-bat-png Update on my Lush-post: The guy who made me and obviously a lot of other people feel so bad stopped working at my local Lush and last time the people were as amazing as I remember from Lush employees to be (So very happy, can browse in store again and get broke regularly!) still hoping he will find a job that he might enjoy more, maybe it just wasn’t the place for him…
list-bat-png While I have been shopping online a bit nearly every month for the past 15 years this month was the first time failed hard (thank you to the lovely people at Rockinbones for being able to help!)
list-bat-png Temperatures are back to 10°C and up, feels like springtime already, clothing gets thinner and music turns 50% medieval, like every year! Also did some balcony shopping already!
list-bat-png While I had to take a break from workout (knee problems) I started adding about 30 minutes of Yoga stuff to my daylie Batfit routine and so far am more than surprised, totally in love with the Youtube videos from Yoga TX!
list-bat-png Can three weeks delivery for a parcel within Germany still be considered express (next day) delivery? Maybe need to do a rant post, ‘The case of missing bat glasses…’
list-bat-png February… The month with least health and freetime? Sorry I was MIA for most of this month!

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

list-bat-png Louise (Queens of the Wild Frontier) and her Kev probably found the location for their wedding, I think we need much more medieval-wedding-locations with cats!
list-bat-png For anyone who is interested in classic culture with some darkness, take a look at Indigo: dystopic opera with a touch of metal music on Daughter of the jaded era!
list-bat-png Who doesn’t love adding new lyrics on their favourite songs? Lauren did this for a song I’ve never heard before Drink it up! (Original Song is Add it up by the Violent Femmes) so I am sure if I ever hear that song again it will be with her lyrics!

Most played songs this month:

list-bat-png Capud Draconis – Mars
list-bat-png Opsculum – Der Altar in meiner Gruft
list-bat-png L’âme Immortelle – Auf deinen Schwingen
list-bat-png Angelzoom – The things you said
list-bat-png Mantus – Freund Hein

Plans for the next month:

list-bat-png Batfit: As mentioned, had to pause some of the workout parts because my left knee was in pain and weak but continued the other exercises, slowly working on a schedule that my knee will accept and hoping to strengthen it a bit as well.
list-bat-png Bodymods: Additional Lobe(s) maybe?
list-bat-png Cave: Currently working on kitchen and bathroom but happy to see the hallway is finished already!
list-bat-png Events: Eisbrecher concert in Hannover, they actually are a ‘must see once a year’ thing for me, love them since their Megaherz & Pokémon days so very looking forwards to this! And Melting Sounds Festival at Zeche Carl since I have that weekend off as well!
list-bat-png Blog: Maybe finally change the menue bar? And of course, will try for 1-2 youtube videos, failed on this in February. Still feels strange but some things are better in video format than in blogpost format or need a few moving pictures added on top and practise probably is the only thing that will help to improve I guess!

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