Ergänzung zu Eintrag darunter

Dezember 26, 2007

Allein die Titeln! z.B: „Akademie der Götter“, „spider’s nightmare“ oder die LOtR-Persiflage „Die Herren der Klingen“ (hehe, aber fragt mich nicht danach)…

Und das meiste ist wirklich possierlich zu lesen, z.B. „Es vermochte ihn nichts zu erfreuen und nichts zu erschrecken, nur ein leises Flimmern von Unruhe war in ihm: er verschwendete sein Leben, und er wusste es“ (Zitat aus „Kiira-Shan“)

…. wenn ich dann mal mehr Zeit habe, werde ich eventuell ein paar Texte posten. Wobei die literarisch wertvollsten großteils unpostbar sind. Diese Mixtur aus „Möge bloß keiner jemals einen der Texte in die Hand bekommen“ und „Mögen es alle lesen und lieben“… sehr strange.

Schriftstellerei

Dezember 26, 2007

 

Habe ein paar meiner alten Texte gelesen und muss sagen, dass ich sehr begeistert von jenen bin, die ich so mit 17, 18, 19 Jahren verfasst habe. Die Beschreibungen sind geradezu brilliant und die witzig gemeinten Stellen bringen mich zum Lachen (hehe, ich hab halt meinen Humor). 
Das soll jetzt keine Selbstbeweihräucherung sein, nur eine Feststellung darüber treffen, dass einen die wissenschaftliche Arbeit und das Lesen von Lehrbüchern verdirbt. Heute vermag ich sehr logisch und exakt zu schreiben, aber früher hatten meine Texte einen Charme und ein Leben. „Sauber“, das kann man über das neuere Zeug sagen, dem man auch einen Hang zu Gliedsätzen und Fremdworten nicht absprechen kann – aber das liest man und denkt bestenfalls „aha“. Und das ältere Zeug liest man und denkt „Ja!“. 
 
 
Weiß nicht, vielleicht ist es auch Übungssache, denn: „Alles im Leben ist Übungssache, gut radfahren, gute Klausuren schreiben, guter S*x,  und gut singen“ (Zitat von Professor B., wenn er es sagt, klingt es ziemlich witzig, weil er diese todernste Dozentenmiene nicht aufgibt)
 
PS:Bin gerade draufgekommen, dass mein Konflikt mit Herrn Hahn noch bis Sommerende Zeit hat und alles gut ist….

Sometimes I have the feeling that the world turns faster than our average pace.  Like everyone seems to have no time and be struggling. Like everyone has the feeling of missing something.  Like everyone trying to accomplish something or keep something (like getting the job he/she is educated for or like keeping the high-rent small flat) so hard and still always being on the edge of accomplishment and non-accomplishment. Like running upwards a down-running moving staircase. You manage, but it is so hard…..

Sleep, my friend!

Dezember 17, 2007

(and this was not adressed to „my friend“)I hate to feel tired. The problem only is that I really need 7-8 hours of sleep otherwise I am tired no matter how much coffee I drink. The next problem is that I have such a lot to do (Baby-C, thesis, housework, …) and the day has only 17 waking hours (24-7). Baby-C. is awake from 7.am to 9 p.m usually, so I can write my thesis only after 9 p.m. or when A. takes her. … oh, shoot (copyright Brenda), how is it possible for a mother to really have a 40-hours-a-week job?  … I would so much like to find the answer to the sleep question.Just imagine: Being refreshed after only 2 hours of sleep. Just imagine what you could do!  … by the way, does anyone know the scientific/true answer to the question: How much sleep does one need? Is it a matter of habit, can you get used to sleeping only 4 hours a night? Is it genetic how much you need? Is there a way to replace sleep by p.e. eating more and gain your energy through that?  

My career with the freedom party

Dezember 15, 2007

I had the most extraordinary dream today. ( I got to bed at 7.00 p.m and woke up just now) It goes like that: 

I wrote an article  about the rights of a person to his or her privacy (which is my thesis’ topic) and had to give reasons why in my opinion the Austrian Supreme Court wants to protect privacy so strongly that he refuses any balancing of legally protected interests with p.e. freedom of art. To justify my agreeing with the OGH (in real life I have not made up my mind yet) I came to defend the concept of legal positivism (Rechtspositivismus) by claiming that our society now sees a great need to protect privacy and this was of course right because the Supreme Court says it was right. I claimed that what a democratic society states as its law is right as people have elected their parliament to take these decisions and then I came to bashing even Radbruch. My article was published and then there was a thunder of answers as every upright Austrian academic started to bash me for justifying Legal positivism.  As being bashed means being quoted and being read I rose in my academic career and the law-magazine’s editor begged me to write many more articles. I of course started back-bashing my critics and became a great defender of Legal positivism.  My favorite sentence ran : “Terror hat seine Legitimität in der Furcht” (terror is legitimated through terror)  when I had to explain why law made by oppressors is also law) While writing that I remembered that in Buechner’s “Dantons Tod” Robespierre claims about the same thing. So I get the ingenious idea of adding sentences from “Dantons Tod” and writing all kinds of bullshit as long as it is radical. My only wish is to be bashed again as being bashed means being recognized.  We (I take A’s help from time to time to write even more intellectual waste-sentences) keep on writing and the community keeps bashing us.  We have quite a lot of fun doing that as we keep on quoting Spartans, Shakespeare, Mel Brooks and cooking-recipes. In the end the freedom party’s student section wants to offer me a chair (professorship) in Heidelberg as they think of me as a new Max Schell. (Which is when I woke up. )

thanks, K., for this song of motivation

…You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best.Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.

Outing

Dezember 15, 2007

… macht’s ihr das auch so, dass ihr aus einem Werk, das eigentlich nicht viel bei der Arbeit weiterhilft, irgendwas per Zufall zitiert (einfach wahllos Buch aufschlagen und das Zitat irgendwo in der Arbeit unterbringen), dass ihr es in die Leseliste aufnehmen könnt?

Ich hab’s so mit Adorno gemacht, weil es schon sehr intellektuell wirkt, im Zusammenhang mit der Kunstfreiheit Adorno zu zitieren, aber eigentlich ist es meinem kleinen Hirn nicht möglich, den Sinn aus seinen Worten zu extrahieren.

  2. What is your greatest fear?Loneliness? Illness? I don’t know. There are many things I would like to avoid…  but fear is a very strong word and I am not facing any of the things mentioned above so the answer  „I don’t have any great fear“ may  be more correct as fearing something abstract is not really possible. 
  3. Which historical figure do you most identify with?Caesar breaking down in tears at the sight of the statute of Alexander.
  4. Which living person do you most admire?Hard to tell.  I admire certain traits in friends but I could not name the person that I most admire. 
  5. What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?  Agressive anger when time runs short.

  17. What is your most treasured possession?Maybe my clothes, as it would totally suck if I had to look again for things that fit my size.
  18. What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?Being sick and in permanent pain. 
  19. Where would you like to live?There is this wonderful three-floored 19th-century mansion five minutes from my home, surrounded by a small park with chestnut-trees. I’d greatly like to live there.
