Rules Are For Other People

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 23, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

For anyone traveling in to Bremen over the next few days or weeks, things are going to be a little tight. It’s that time of year when the local administrations improve the road surfaces by spreading a thin layer of bitumen across parts of the road surface and then sprinkling tiny, sharp stones on the […]

What’s In A Name? Play On Words

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 13, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I wonder who comes up with headlines like this. Do they just appear in their minds or are hours of strenuous thinking hidden behind a few words? This amused me today, and I am sure you can see why: Screenshot Source: Twitter / Page Six It matches, almost perfectly, the photograph of a 50 Cent […]

Sexism And The Wandering Eye

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 8, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I don’t have a problem with people looking, we all do it including me. I see a beautiful woman walking down the street, I am going to look at her, I’m going to see what she’s wearing, I’m going to admire her shape. Not in a slack-jaw, drooling, spit running over my chin manner, as […]

Creation: The Ultimate Proof?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 30, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I had the dubious pleasure, a few days ago, of overhearing a conversation about the ultimate proof that there is a God or, if you will, a god. It was delivered by a middle-aged woman to a man, who clearly had no interest whatsoever, but played along just for the ride. In essence it began […]

The Darkest Days Of Humanity

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 27, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It is hard to believe that some count the last hours as being the darkest ever. I do not mean in a natural light sense – sunlight, daylight saving time and all that – but in the sense of a set back for the human race, a turnaround in the wrong direction, a return to […]

My Internet Superpower Should Be…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 18, 2015 in Photography |

The first thing I thought when I saw this photograph on Flickr’s Explored today was: I wish I had taken this. I wish I was the person standing behind the camera who was able to capture this single image, this moment in time forever. For me, as a very inexperienced photographer, it has everything that […]

Man In The Shadows

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 10, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Not many people get to celebrate it, and certainly not many people have their birthday mentioned in the news media around the world. Prince Philip, Prince Consort, the Duke of Edinburgh (and so on) is ninety-four years old. The only reason that I mention this, since I have nothing to do with the British royal […]

Jobsworth: A Little Thought Goes…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 8, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

For anyone who doesn’t already know it, I travel a great deal by bus. Every college day I make my way to the local bus station, climb into a bus which takes me to Bremen, change over to a tram which takes me almost to the college door and, every evening, I do the same […]

Pondering The Shopping Basket Of Others

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 2, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Have you ever stood in a long, slowly moving queue in the grocer store and, for want of something better to do, tried to imagine what the person in front is going to be eating for their evening meal? I do it now and then although, perhaps I’m lucky here, the queues tend to be […]

Twitter: Getting Good Placement

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 29, 2015 in Internet |

The saying Timing Is Everything has had its day. Now, with the fast-moving, interactive, shallow-concentration days of the Internet and social media, placement is everything. If you can get you message across in exactly the right place at exactly the right time, you’re in there. The trouble is, no matter how many algorithms may be […]
