Spotlight/Shoutout: Daniel Bruhl


So I am approaching the end of my 10 week intensive German class,

and I want to give the shoutout to one of Germany's most popular actors, Daniel B!

He has done hits such as "Goodbye Lenin" "The Edukators," and "Inglorious Bastards."

But I can see why he is so often used in German films. Daniel has a look and personality that display charisma and a sense of understanding.

It's too bad he's so old, or else he'd do well in a German version of "Catcher in the Rye."

But anyway, German films are a lot of fun, and I am watching "The Tunnel" tomorrow.
And no, I have no idea who is in it..............



QATFYG:
Do you have a favorite German actor? Franka Potente by chance?

  2. Klaus Kinski :) (german but, to be precise, born in Sopot, now Poland, Freie Stadt Danzig in 1926)
    I like the girl in The edukators a lot too. (did you like the movie? I saw it recently and was quite impressed) she was also in that movie about Sophie Scholl.

    if you enjoy german movies I'd like to suggest you Heimat by Edgar Reitz, an enciclopedia of german history in images :) and very enjoyable too

  3. yes, I did like the Edukators,
    I thought the main actress in it was good, but her character for me was a little hard to like.

    And I will look into Heimat, danke sehr. :)

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
