Film: 1. May heroes at work

1. May heroes at work
or: a general 1. May in Berlin Kreuzberg


or “Large shadow cast ahead of the history & events” Thus begins a song of the crashes ends pigeons and that has really little to do with film, out of, that this band a long time ago, when punk was still an important part of, little was known of this song and I start immediately came to mind yesterday, I saw signs for unlimited time parking ban but very limited parking ban outside my front door. Sometime the next day, then come the Polizeiabsperrgitter and Friday night teeming again from police car on the Oranienplatz.

1. Mai sechs Uhr bis 2. Mai sechs Uhr Parkverbot

Last year, however, there were around, this year is concern, which could also be used, to last year, a lot has changed. This year, burn cars in Berlin every day, that any idiot al View luxury cars and Burn, then there is a large NPD demo in Berlin, the last year has led to serious riots in Hamburg – and all went to the anarchists from Berlin to Hamburg…. This year, right and left in Berlin plus anarchists from all over Germany in Berlin… And there on the Friday followed by a weekend, sure a few more. After all, the 1. May in Kreuzberg yes something like a symbol and such a symbol, dass es bereits einen Film gibt, which contains only this.

1. May heroes at work


This film deals with different people on a typical 1. May in Berlin Kreuzberg. Since we have a Turk, Javuz like its little brother would be a big gangster and love to make and the cops would flatten and brings him into some trouble, there is Harry, the old '68, Once a year the building barricades and declared Javuz, what with Communists, Stalinists, Freedom fighters and a beer bottle on his cabinet has to be, because there is the policeman Uwe, whose wife has just separated from him, and who has no desire to rampage and without his gun again found in a brothel and is riveted by its own water cannon and finally there's the two tourists from riot town, throw the bottles, handle with ratchet, Branding and try to make first experiences with drugs…. Plus a few other people, whose paths cross. That's all find a late night in the hospital because only the logical consequence.


Overall, a great movie, härterer Art, one day to the 1. May in Berlin Kreuzberg shows – as it could be, when filmmakers think of him. Interestingly, he is definitely. Kreuzberg between the road and the chicken house Skarlitzer Oranienplatz. As this year.

I prefer the Myfest but with the Coretex- and the drinking devil-stage instead of rioting


Locksmiths in Berlin

I am from Kreuzberg, Du Muschi.

In the future, I can also say this sentence from the film Princesses, because for two days I'm home with an apartment in Berlin. More specifically in Kreuzberg, Legiendamm, outgoing from Oranienplatz almost 300-400 Meters from my new job in Orange Street. 61 mÃ, Â ² there are now rented out the fourth floor on top of me.

So I'm not even now arrived two years after my first visit to Berlin and finally, one to three visits per month in this city completely there.

fernsehturm2.jpgTwo things I have already learned:

  • The fourth floor is, when so often with heavy boxes up running him sore.
  • Always finish, for key services do not open locked doors in seconds.

And, exactly Locksmiths. …. The apartment above me was barely passed and signed the handover protocol, made to the broker with the certainty of having earned just two months' rent to me back home to. Since I immediately wanted to wear something highly, I followed him on foot. …The new keys being on the transfer protocol and was again in my living room. Separated from me only by a closed door.

I had so, hardly taken over the apartment, and not carried up a carton, already locked. Fuck.

A key service so had to be. Called off to the nearest internet cafe and several key services in Berlin. I do not know if this is indeed the case, or whether it is just my feeling, that when a locksmith only cops and criminals to work. The first three different companies with different numbers I'm obviously ended up in the same center, because everyone called me 100% the same prices. 20€ pro ange prisoners 15 Arrival and departure and minutes 20 € pro ange prisoners 15 Minutes of work + 19% VAT…. Clear, then of course that the least 16 Minutes to run and work each.

…I negotiated with the next key service number a fixed price of 78 € with guaranteed non-destruction of my lock cylinder, waited and annoyed at myself. Overall, the service has no key 2 minutes had working with my door and now I know, that it is super-simple, to open a not completed door.

That really opened the eyes of. From now on, always completed, so I do not again need a Schlüsseldienst as fast.

By the way, the apartment is great and the area somehow. Viele Cafes, Bars, Restaurants. Although my house has many amazing Ö or Ü's's ​​name in the ring, but that is already. The first residents have already had to make experience with trannies, because Sheila has already passed my first home residents about the way.
As Sheila said by a few days

Sheila: Since I do not climb out of.
I: Since when are you so memmig.
Sheila: Not memmig – life-affirming.

You lives still, also geht das alles seinen richtigen Gang 😉

But whether it is really, that on the second day in this apartment in less than 100 Meters a brief police Hundred, had to stand two water thrower and a police clearing tank of the Poli time, the I asked me yesterday already.
