June 2018: Not much to tell, I made the videos for Currents and the making of for California. The highlight was going to Rock im Park, especially the shows by Casper and 30 Seconds To Mars. I've also started working on some new music, but I don't know when I'm finished, might take a while.

May 2018: After 5 months of planning, it was finally time to actually shoot the video for ”California“. Originally, we wanted to start on May 2nd and maybe add another day after that, but the weather was pretty shitty so we had to cancel it and do it on May 7th instead. I wasn't too psyched about that, since it meant I had to get all the permits for a different day again, so, naturally, I was a little stressed out. But when the day came, all of that was forgotten. Cause, and I shit you not, weather on may 7th was as perfect as it could possibly have been. No clouds, bearable heat and a light breeze. When I stood on the roof of my old school, overlooking my hometown at sunrise, I had goosebumps all over me, and the chilly air at 6am wasn't the reason. The rest of the day was just as awesome, even though I've never been this exhausted after anything. When I got to bed, I had been awake for 39 hours, only with a couple of 30 minute naps in-between. It took me a couple days to recover, but oh boy was it worth it! The finished video, which you can watch here, is something that I'm really proud of.

April 2018: The month began with me visiting our house on the countryside for our annual easter celebration and when I got back home, I finally finished the vocal recordings for my cover of Coldplay's “O“. For the rest of my free time, I rewrote the script for the shooting of the music video for “California“ which, hopefully, will be finished by the end of next month. I also visited the locations a couple of times, just to be as prepared as I could be. And, of course I bought tickets for Rock im Park. I can't really afford it but it'll be worth it.

March 2018: Stressful weeks, again, but also pretty satisfying. I bought a new electric guitar which I just love, I mean look at the color of this thing, it's marvelous. Also, after two months of making plans and juggling different ideas, I finally decided to film the video for my cover version of Coldplay's “O“ at my old school. It was a big challenge since it was the first time for me and two of my friends that we ever tried doing something like that. The video is finished now but I still have to record some fragments of the vocal parts so I'll upload it as soon as I'm finished with it, hopefully in April. All I can say now is: It's not perfect at all, but the imperfections make it kinda beautiful and also, it's so much better than I expected it to be, given the fact that we were all bloody amateurs haha.

February 2018: Another busy month, accomplished a lot of stuff. I released two music videos, produced several songs (some of my own, but some cover versions too), and I started planning even more video shootings, so March is going to be just as busy, maybe even more. Aaand I also went to yet another concert by "Prinz Pi", which is pretty much just a tradition by now.

January 2018: So I had quite a good start into the new year if you don't count the first two days where I was just lying in my bed. I wrote some new songs, made some old ones better, released an album after two years of work (yay!) and I started working on some plans and ideas for future video shootings, even wrote some scripts, it's gonna be good I guess. Oh and as usual I spent every fucking penny I had left on new music equipment. Now it's reached a point where I should consider getting help because it is very much bleeding me dry. It's fun though (working with new equipment, being broke not so much). I could write a lot more, but why should I when I can just write a quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson, which fits so much better anyway? Here it goes: “Hope smiles from the threshold of the new year, saying 'it will be happier'“. Man, that just says it all.
