This hotel was the best hotel. Can’t choose a favourite egg, though.

They ask me, “desertpalace, where have you been?”

I say: “1991!”

Important bulletin!

Profanities add vim to tired clichés.

"Well, that defies the fuck out of all logic."

"We’ve been through the results with a fine ass-toothed comb."

"Lovely weather, you bastard."

2013: goodbye Bremen - hello Dublin!

2013: goodbye Bremen - hello Dublin!

Moved into a new room at the guesthouse, and this was on the wall.

I thought about taking it down and hiding it in the closet, but it was fastened to the wall with screws.image

A spare towel covers it conveniently.

Desertpalace’ Adventures in Electricity, Vol. 7.
The North-South Interconnector. One of the designs considered for the towers looked like a sleepy Happy Heart. It’s called the “Inverted Delta” and I like it very much.
This is how the landscape could have looked: a queue of little heart faces gazing kindly down at you from their twiggy pedestals. A visual manifestation of north-south fellowship! Great for kids!
Sadly, the design was rejected on the grounds of visual impact.
