21.12.2012 – 21.12.2012 – This one goes out to the one I love

It's the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine)

It’s the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine). The end of the world according to the Maya was scheduled for today. R.E.M. said it more than 20 years ago (I feel old), the song brings back so many good memories. Back to my teenage years when seeing them in concert, falling madly in love with guy called Ian, afterwards we looked for him everywhere but couldn’t find him. Months later my sister “Hasi” claimed she had seen him at Plaza Catalunya and freaked out. (We do claim to have seen Michael Stipe years later lying at a sun lounger next to us on the beach.) Memories of dancing to losing my religion, flirting to shiny happy people, crying to everybody hurts… Every proper 90’s mix tape had to have at least one song by R.E.M. I always wanted to see them again in concert, wish I hadn’t postponed it every time, now they separated. But I feel fine. This one goes out to the one I love. They are one of my favourite bands. Ever.

Es ist das Ende der Welt, so wie wir sie kennen (und ich fühle mich gut). Der Maya Kalendar hört heute auf, einige haben schon vom Weltuntergang geredet. R.E.M. hat es vor über 20 Jahren gesagt (ich fühl mich alt). Dieses Lied bringt so viele gute Erinnerungen zurück. Zurück in meine Backfischzeit als ich sie auf einem Konzert gesehen habe, wir uns unsterblich in einen gewissen Ian verliebt haben, den wir trotz intensiver Suche nie wieder gesehen haben. Meine Schwester “Hasi” besteht zwar darauf, ihn ein paar Monate später an der Plaza Catalunya gesehen zu haben. Bestätigen kann das keiner. Ausgeflippt ist sie trotzdem. (Wir legen aber die Hand ins Feuer, dass der Sänger Michael Stipe Jahre später in der Liege neben uns am Strand gelegen hat). Erinnerungen daran wie ich zu losing my religion getanzt, shiny happy people geflirtet und everybody hurts geweint habe. Jede gute selbstaufgenommene Kassette aus den 90er musste zumindest ein Lied von R.E.M. haben. Ich wollte immer noch mal auf ein Konzert von Ihnen gehen, wünschte ich hätte es nicht immer verschoben, vor einem Jahr haben sie sich getrennt. Aber ich fühle mich gut. R.E.M. ist eine meiner Lieblingsgruppen. Das ist (ein Eintrag) an die, die ich liebe.
