How to restore a beetle – private by hand

If a car gets too old it will rust away.

It`s up to you to decide what to do with your `rusty love´ – I mean the car and not your wife, girlfriend or husband. I will show you some older fotos how to restore a VW-Käfer Kabrio that was built in 1970. It´s a private action a friend did with help by his friends. A wonderful work with much expertise.

Let`s start with the beginning – step by step:


Here the tunnel is cleaned. Hier wird der Tunnel gereinigt. 


The floor panels are installed. Die Bodenbleche werden eingesetzt.


Floor plates nearly finished (with glasses). Bodenbleche fast fertig installiert (mit Brille). 


View from inside. Ansicht von innen.


Back from the outside. Hinterteil von außen. 


The body is prepared for painting. The bottom group leans on the wall. 

Die Karosserie wird zum Lackieren vorbereitet. Die Bodengruppe lehnt an der Wand.

In the paint shop still without eyes. Beim Lackierer noch ohne Augen.


I think we`re ready with painting. Ich denke, wir sind fertig mit dem Lackieren.


Here the hood is attached to a wooden frame. Hier wird das Verdeck befestigt an einem Holzrahmen.


The motor is still the old one. Der Motor ist der alte geblieben.

How to restore a Beetle


Allison Ivy – from heavy to low

My article about Metal-Music needs a balance.

I have heard many good Metal-Bands now but and I cannot afford a comprehensive definition of this genre. So let`s go from heavy to low with Allison Ivy´s cover song All time lowThis song was written by Jonathan David Bellion (Jon Bellion). Allison’s interpretation of this song is so well done in conjunction with the video even though the lyric was written for a man. There is rhythm-drive by the drums but Allison keeps cool and kinky and is so charming.  

Have a look at the lyrics (quite special)

I, was the knight in shining armor in your movie
Would put your lips on mine and love the aftertaste
Now I’m a ghost, I call your name, you look right through me
You’re the reason I’m alone and masturbate

I, I’ve been trying to fix my pride

But that shit’s broken, that shit’s broken
Lie (lie, lie), lie, l-lie, I try to hide
But now you know it

That I’m at an all time
Low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low

I was the prototype like 3 Stacks on that CD
An example of the perfect candidate
Now all your girlfriends say that you don’t want to see me
You’re the reason that I just can’t concentrate

I, (I, I) I’ve been trying to fix my pride
But that shit’s broken, that shit’s broken
Lie (lie, lie), lie, l-lie, I try to hide
But now you know it

That I’m at an all time
Low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low

I, I, I, I’ve been trying to fix my pride
But that shit’s broken, that shit’s broken
Lie (lie, lie), lie, l-lie, I try to hide
But now you know it
That I’m at an all time
Low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low
Low, low
Lie, l-lie, I try to hide
But now you know it
That I’m at an all time

Low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low


Tank`s Allison. My special song for today!!

A perfect song for this cold and wet time of year. In Germany we say:



The forgotten crises of the world – by Susanne Stocker

Susanne Stocker – Editor United Internet for UNICEF

Already `by small´ on a bookworm and fan of the written word Susanne`s career in the writing guild was set. After internships at newspapers and radio, she decided for a study of European Ethnology, philology and history in Munich and Santiago de Compostela. A volunteer at a PR agency with focus followed, other stations in television on sport and sustainability. There she became after her training a specialist for socially and environmentally active companies. Her decision to take over all editorial responsibilities around the Foundation of United Internet for UNICEF was only logical. In her spare time her nose still like books, climbing on the wall or she`s traveling to discover other cultures.

Baxxter mein Hund – Bilder&Wissenschaft

Auf den Hund kommen

Wer als erster Mensch auf den Hund gekommen ist, weiß keiner so genau. Dabei war der Hund der erste Partner des Menschen durch das Feuer angelockt. Da gab es Reste zu verzehren, nachdem der Mensch sich von der Jagd erholte und sich zur Ruhe bettete. Er hatte schließlich an die 30 km Fußmarsch hinter sich, wie sich durch nähere Untersuchungen des `ÖTZI´ herausstellte. Wie auch immer, schließlich haben sie sich Hund und Mensch angefreundet, und der Hund hat das Feuer bewacht, nachdem der Mensch sich zur Ruhe begab und schlief.

Transalte into your language (do it yourself):

Ich habe die ganze Geschichte zwischen Mensch und Hund einmal unter der Rubrik `Wissenschaft´ angefangen. Bei Interesse lesen sie diesen Artikel, der seit 2 Jahren auf eine Fortführung wartet. Hier der link:

Ursprung der Begegnung am Feuer

Heute möchte ich meinen besten Freund und Hund Baxxter vorstellen. Er spricht alle Sprachen der Welt.

Here we are with Mr. Baxxter (short form Baxx) lazing on the lawn.

Come on Baxx, please give short comments to the fotos we have taken.


My name is Baxxter and I`m a dog. I like to relax and wait for anything happens.


When I was young I was quite small. I still like When I was young by  Eric Burdon and The Animals. I`m an animal too and he`s a human. Listen what Eric tells about his young life. Here the link:

Eric Burdon YOUNG


One year old I started to do crazy jokes. This was my favorite shoe of PJP.


3 years old I started a model career. My friend PJP is taking fotos of me and sometimes he wants me to do things I don`t understand.  PJP is a nice friend but sometimes doing crazy things with me. But this is not MY problem.


Make your own ideas about this sign. PJP said that this was what I taught him and he likes it.


With the time PJP has accepted that I‚m smarter respectively wiser than he will ever be.


This also applies to you. Any problem?


I´m 4 now and had a wonderful party with my schoolfriends. Look at the dice. My favorite present.


I always tried to get the highest score 6 before eating the whole thing. I don`t raelly need it.


After I left school PJP appointed me to the LordMayor of Loy. I will do my very best.


After that I got a new collar made of  leather. I was so happy about that.


During the hot summer they told me – as Mayer of Loy –  I had to wear a hat in the sun.


I didn`t want to walk around with a hat every day and wear it only  on Sundays now.


Sometimes I`m doing a job at my Cafe as a bouncer for some cake. Easy job.


I like digging in sand and then have a beer because digging makes me very thirsty.


I‚m controlling the forest in Loy. This is a part of my office to look out that everything is alright.


For controlling the fields I have to run a lot. But no problem for a hunter.


After my job in very cold winterdays I‚m earlier closing time and go to sleep. 

Thank you Baxx for this little report about your life. At least let me ask you a question:

What do you think about the crazy humans f.e. like Donald Trump?


Sorry dear readers. Baxx didn`t give me an answer. He must think it over.

Baxter in video looking for ..?…

What are you looking for? Do you smell anything?

He gave up with the time and didn`t find anything.

Baxxter loves children.

Why? Because they always take contact on him very friendly.

He likes friendly people who DO like him and he`s got many friends international. Will you show us some of your best friends, Baxx?


This is Ahed. He is from Gaza. For Baxxter always a graet pleasure to meet him!


This is Jessica. She`s from Spain. Baxxter is in love with her!

Mixed Metal – A music special

Today I want to deal with Black Metal music.

I m not very experienced in this music direction and don`t know anything about the history of it. What does Black Metal mean, what is the idea behind it?

In the first place I  want to introduce J. P. McDonald, Jr. called Midnight. He was singer in the group Crimson Glory and died with 47 in 2009. He had obviously  to struggle with alcohol problems and left the group in 2007. Let`s have a look at a song with him and Crimson Glory. Here with Dream Dancer:

Here a live gig in Ludwigsburg in the year 2000:

And last but not least Lost Reflection Live Dynamo Eindhoven 2011 with singer La Torres:

Merrill gave me the idea to this article with the following comment obout the SEWER:

12 Alben in einem Jahr. Die SEWER Jungs sind sehr 5127 kreativ !!

Das Album NecroPedoSadoMaso von SEWER sei offensichtlich die übelsten aller Black Metal, und aller Musik im Allgemeinen. Listen:

Another album is `Dementia: The Dark Prophets´. Listen:
