Johnny works in a factory and Billy works downtown
Terry works in a rock and roll band
Lookin' for that million-dollar sound
I got a little job down in Darlington
But some nights I don't go
Some nights I go to the drive-in
Or some nights I stay home
I followed that dream just like
those guys do up on the screen
And I drive a Challenger down Route 9
through the dead ends and all the bad scenes
And when the promise was broken,
I cashed in a few of my dreams
(Bruce Springsteen - The Promise)
Here's what I liked this week: A series of photos taken in Iceland, a beautiful short film about motorcycling, a blog with links to unreleased songs by Bruce Springsteen, two photostreams on Flickr (#1; #2), and a designer light bulb.
Today, I handed in my letter of application and CV at a coffee shop in one of the better areas of Hamburg - I've worked as a waiter before, so I'd be happy to get that job. I also had cake and pie at a friend's birthday party. On my way home, I stopped by the power plant to take that photograph. It's the 11th of November 2011, the 315th day of the year (which means that there's exactly 50 days left), and there's a full moon shining above our earth today.
Earth below us
Calling, calling home
Across the stratosphere
A final message: "Give my wife my love"
Then nothing more
(Peter Schilling - "Major Tom")
Goodnight, and have a nice weekend!
