    Understanding Berlin’s Pink Pipes with @Berlinstagram

    To view more photos and videos of the pink pipes in Berlin, browse the #thatpipeagain hashtag and follow @berlinstagram on Instagram

    Berlin is one big swamp—or at least it used to be. Distinctive pink pipes twist through the city to the nearest river or canal. As groundwater levels are very high, this prevents the city from submerging into a giant puddle.

    The pipes are designed to withstand shrinkage or breakage in extreme temperatures, and the distinct pink color is the result of a study which found this color is preferred by both youth and older generations who are young at heart. Berlin Instagrammer Michael Schulz (@berlinstagram) created the #thatpipeagain hashtag to capture them. “The pink pipes are quite iconic for Berlin,” he says. “When I first visited the city 20 years ago and came across them, I was fascinated and irritated at once—and those pipes stuck to my mind as a characteristic thing of the city.” Now, people all over Berlin use the hashtag to spark conversation about the pink pipes and capture them from different angles throughout the city.

    "we’re constantly like, ‘oh we should try to think of something new.’ and then everything becomes an artist’s smock…you kind of want to be that person, a little bit. even if we’re not artists in our daily lives, we aspire to be. it’s about being happy, trying to find happiness in the end."

    Hosted a mini meet at the Science Center last week. 

    We saw the Pompeii exhibit which was amazing. I loooooove the Roman frescos and the NSFW section.

    Hopefully we can follow the examples of the OC and SD communities and have mini monthly meets for those who are local to Los Angeles<3

    Confucius in the Marketplace. 

    Every so often when I’m feeling disheartened by television network ABC’s (a network for which I worked only last year) apparent disregard for my 25 year career in show business and for the marketplace confusion it has caused, by airing a program whose protagonist bears its creator’s name but one which I also possess and have for some time longer…..I remind myself it could be worse: 

    I could be brilliant singer/songwriter Scott Walker (not to be confused by  douchebag fascist governor of Wisconsin with the same name). 

    I could be groundbreaking developmental psychologist Erik Erikson (not to be confused by his homonym, douchebag fascist editor of RedState.com, Erick Erickson ). 

    Hell I could be 1950’s tv sitcom, The Goldbergs (totally unrelated to the contemporary series to which I’m referring, which borrowed? its name). 

    And I don’t feel better. But I imagine I could feel worse.

    scorchedangel said: I read The Orphan Master's Son based on your tweet about it and just wanted to say thank you! It was easily the best book I read this year, possibly ever! Got any more recommendation? :P

    fishingboatproceeds:

    yeah!

    If you liked The Orphan Master’s Son, some other books I recommend:

    An Untamed State by Roxane Gay

    How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid

    Ghana Must Go by Taiye Selasi

    Each of these novels (like Orphan Master’s Son) takes us to a place most of us don’t know well and makes it rich and vibrant and complicated and human.
