Fucking Moskau! (German title)

18Sekunden_Buchcover.inddAfter a lot of work and writing, I’m finally finished with my first book. “Fucking Moscow” is in the stores since Jul 8th 2013. The title is indeed provocative, but not meant in a bad way. Its also not (only) about fucking around in Moscow. In one of the last chapters of the book, I fall in love with a young girl. When we are finally together, I take her to my favorite club to introduce her to my best friends. After a while she gets bored and takes off into the crowd. When my friends and I decide to move on, I am looking for her, but can’t find her at first. Then I finally find her. Drunk and in the arms of another man. After that, I am leaving and meeting my friends on the street, which ask me, what had happened. My answer: “Fucking Moscow!”.

The book is about the new Russia. About how people consume each other in Europes largest city. Its about a generation, that has everything, but cannot get enough.

At first the book will come out in German. Friends told me, that it is very hard to get a German book translated into other languages. Especially English. I guess, it all depends on how well it will sell in Germany. But, I am working with an American screenwriter on a TV or movie version.

Besides, I am already working on the next book, which I promise will even be better and more exciting. Stay tuned!

You can order it at Amazon: Fucking Moskau

Skydiving in Russia

That can not be sure in Russia, right? Safety is very important here. I visit some friends on their Dropzone and look at everything exactly. Also, unfortunately, I am conducting one of the last interviews with Valery Rozov, one of the best base jumpers in the world. He died a …

Kiss of Dirt

I’d do almost anything for a good movie. I djed on Saturday until 6 o’clock in the morning and then met our film crew at 8 o’clock to drive out to the country and participate in a very hard obstacle course on a military training ground. At least it was …

Skydiving in Russia

Many believe Skydiving and flying is less secure than in Germany, the US or elsewhere. I went to see myself and even jumped to get the full experience. Safety is number one and the prices are almost the same, than in Germany. It was my second tandem jump and this time I could fully enjoy it. Even though my last one was almost 20 years go, I remembered much of it and the 1-3 second blackout didn’t happen this time. So I’ve been fully aware of every second of my jump and I enjoyed it! Thank You to Stas Umanov for taking me on that ride (as a friend of the family and the tandem master).

N24 – Sex, Drogen und Wodka (TV Documentary in German)

Here is a 45 min TV documentary, which was aired on N24, a national German news station. The title is somewhat irritating, since the documentary covers most aspects of Moscows nightlife and cannot be reduced to these 3 keywords. Anyway, the filmmaker followed me for a few weeks and I’m guiding him and the viewer through Moscows nightlife (of the summer 2014). Enjoy the film.
