MacLoud on stageYesterday I visited our local festival: the Zeltkerwa in Truppach. The Rock-Cover-Band MacLoud was on stage and I really had some fun there. As result I generated some media coverage of this event. Have a look at my image gallery here, or watch these two YouTube-Videos. There is also a German review at the, and I didn't miss the chance to write about the event on Qype.

Zeltkerwa - Review on Friday with Audio-1

Saturday, September 2. 2006

Jessi from Audio-1Currently the sound check for today’s band at the Zeltkerwa in Truppach bugs me.. Yesterday my brother managed to convince me to stay at the Kerwa far longer than I initially planed – my hit and run tactic was undermined by his invitation to one or two drinks at the bar.. That gave me the chance to compile a quite impressive pictures series of Audio-1’s performance yesterday. I had about 500 images raw material and the best images made it online. The music of Audio 1 was very “dark” (which reminded me to International Pony’s song “Gothic Girl”), but I indeed enjoyed a few songs (especially their cover of Iron Maiden’s “Fear of the Dark" – which is one of my favourite songs). I enjoyed The overall performance although some songs were not exactly my taste (German lyrics enclosed). Let’s hope that “Race” manages to attract a) a bigger audience and b) is a little nearer to the usual party mainstream.

Zeltkerwa in Truppach

Friday, September 1. 2006

Pictures Zeltkerwa Truppach KrenfleischSeems like I don’t get a chance to rest from local festivals… This week my home village celebrates its Kerwa – and the festival area is just some 300 meters away from my parent’s house. So I can listen to the “music” of Audio-1 through the closed window… I even had to work yesterday selling food yesterday – and of course I managed to take some pictures there – I also wrote a short post on I’ll go for a short photo session again later – but the music might keep me from spending too much time there.

Yesterday I met Andreas Lang in order to hand over the new home page for Having a meeting for over an hour, we discussed the possibilities and features of Serendipity, and I showed him how to work with a few features. But since S9Y is rather self explanatory there were no bigger problems to discuss. Today I noticed that Andreas did already create new users (one of them has already posted an article), and “took” over the page. Great! It will be very interesting for me to see how this project will work out :-)

It seems that I have a good sense for getting me into extra work… A few years ago I registered the domain because I thought it would be a good way to promote this festival which takes place every first weekend in September in our small village. At that time my brother was treasurer of the society organizing this event. But since I wasn’t even a member of this society I didn’t give too much about caring for their web page (especially since I’m paying for it, and no one ever thanked my for that..). While my brother was active member he had his friend organizing the homepage, and it was ok. But later when he left, there was barely someone left with enough skills to care about the home page within that society.

When there was a problem of accessing the web space they cam back to me about two month ago – everything was fine with the web access – but I realized that editing static web pages with MS Forntpage was not a good solution for them. So I proposed to use a CMS… Well.. That was the point when I got back into that. I searched for a free CMS-Provider which would suit the requirements for an homepage relaunch. With switching there serendipity hosting service to version 1.1-alpha7 and supporting Spartacus I found this Provider. So I opened that new blog yesterday, and now I’m hoping that I can convince the responsible persons to abandon the old web pages and to let me switch the domain to the new blog! (And of course, to get them using it.)
