Brazen Gestures – A Long Walk #2

Brazen Gestures

1:19:36 – Brazen Gestures is back with another sightseeing tour of the German Capital. Come along for a spontaneous and bit hectic walk through the streets of Berlin on the Saturday afternoon. Below are the notes and clickable location references for your enhanced immersive pleasure.

(Location 1) Mood dependent on the weather. Emulation of the experiences. ‘E-Force One’ Electric Car, Trabant trabi-world. Annoyed by city. Moving out to Portugal. Podcasting habits. Archiving. People living humble lives, working too much. Rich and poor. People forgetting about themselves. Kreuzberg.
(Location 2) Axel-Springer office. Startups. Seagway spotting. Electric skateboard update and buyer’s advice. Sim City 5, PlayStation 4 and 4.5. GTA5, Fallout 4, Post-Apocalypse, Violence. Open world games. VR Games. Huge mysterious explosion in Berlin, ISL, ISIS etc..
(Location 3) Retro Futurism. Modulor – not getting paper supplies. Calligraphy update. Rewiring muscle memory. Inconveniences of VR. Hackathon. Competition. Braining Scans (Scaning Brain).
(Location 4) Small generic paper store. Notepads. Lack of imagination.
(Location 5) Markethalle Neun. Being a conscious carnivore. Eating karma-free food. Factory farming. Getting meat from hunters. Organic Market review. People smoking in public places. Pockets full of junk. Buying old money for time traveling purposes.
(Location 6) Money is dirty and dodgy.
(Location 7) Berlin Wall. Illegal gambling on the street. Getting scammed. Lots of selfie-sticks.
(Location 8) Bauhaus and Banhof (Train station). Getting tired, Train Station fair

  1. This show was quite an experience! The explosion was quite exciting and mysterious and like you seemed to be, I was a bit concerned.

    At 41:20 or so, the ambulance; it probably wasn’t a big deal to you, but to an American, it was awesome!!

    Mmmm happy cows.

    You have odd enjoyments and your voice is smooth and in general, a delight to listen to. This longer-than-normal program was a joy.

  2. Also, is the o2 World (near the Berlin Wall) a new arena (aka, a 2nd arena) in the city? I found one on Wikipedia but it’s from 2009; this one looks new and different and the parking lot looks as if it is not finished. If it is new, is it to replace the other arena or is it for a second team/sport? It’s not important to me but I was just curious.

  3. Thanks Jimbo!
    That kaboom was massive! I felt as if something exploded just behind my back.
    O2 arena – hmm I am confused now… It seems closed now! Very strange. I was under impression that it was just built!
    I need to verify this. It could be another case of ‘berenstain bears’ syndrome that Frank talks about!
    Google ‘street view’ photos are from 2008 which is surprisingly old. Berlin looks quite different now. This place looks as if it was under construction indeed.
