Sunny Afternoon

 

And I love to live so pleasantly

Live this life of luxury

Lazing on a sunny afternoon

In the summertime…

— The Kinks (1967)

This is Jochen Hein’s shadow looming over a gathering of frightened empty wine bottles… fairly reminiscent of Max Schreck as Count Orlok… in F.W. Murnau’s expressionist masterpiece “Nosferatu – A Symphony of Horror” (1922)… http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-6185283610506001721

… and the wine list… now this is purely incidental, but if you would like to have a closer look at the paintings on the wall… http://www.artdoxa.com/users/Jochen_Hein/artwork_catalogs/23/artworks/7971http://www.artdoxa.com/users/Jochen_Hein/artwork_catalogs/22/artworks/7938

Aspiring photographer – http://www.artdoxa.com/users/felix/artworks/13879 – and struggling recording artist Felix Adelmann… in search of the lost chord… out in the studio backyard… while stacks of crates behold his shoes in silent admiration… those uber cool loafersFelix – we’ll miss you…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Search_of_the_Lost_Chord

… Tiger Beer and Orange… http://www.artdoxa.com/users/peckmaster/artworks/20855 http://www.artdoxa.com/mydoxa/artworks/23448 … taking it easy in their not quite so uber cool sandals and shirts, watching…

as the handyman fixes a drainpipe with gaffer tape… applying the same acumen and circumspection he’s usually reserved for his painting…

 … another job well done!Yes, the artist’s life is ardent and strenuous… full of privations… a never-ending struggle for truthfulness and authenticity…

Help me, help me, help me sail away,

Well give me two good reasons why I oughta stay?

Cause I love to live so pleasantly,

Live this life of luxury,

Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

In the summertime

In the summertime

In the summertime…

    Schön, wenn man aus dem Urlaub heimkehrt und gewahr wird, daß alles beim Alten ist. Und das sich die Grafen auch heute noch des gepflegten Lautespiels befleißigen – Respekt!
