Der Fall Josef S.: Ein Stein im Mosaik

Für alle, die an der Causa Josef S. interessiert sind. Ich fand den Kommentar gut geschrieben und vor allem den Vergleich im Bezug auf die Wertigkeit von Zeugenaussagen sehr passend gewählt.

Your voice sounds completely different in different languages. It alters your personality somehow. I don’t think people get the same feeling from you. The rhythm changes. Because the rhythm of the language is different, it changes your inner rhythm and that changes how you process everything.
When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself. I often find when looking at people who are comfortable in many languages, they’re more comfortable talking about emotional stuff in a certain language or political stuff in another and that’s really interesting, how people relate to those languages. — François Arnaud, for Interview Magazine

For someone who has never watched Game of Thrones I sure am very passionate about learning how to play the GoT theme. 

Found out that Marika Hackman is opening for The Antlers at their concert in October. Just another reason to go even though it means skipping uni. 

Imagine your two favourite musicians getting together at a concert to sing a duet.
Then imagine you aren’t there.
