going to mülheim (zinefest 2009) part the second

I couldn’t find my way out of the fucking shopping mall, the exits had been closed, there was no way out, any minute security guards would come up behind me to drag me away and I would die here, in a tiny windowless room in the basement of hell. I like to delude myself into […]

going to mülheim (zinefest 2009) part the first

“Excuse me, but do you happen to be going to Köln?” “No, Mülheim. Why, you guys have a group ticket?” “Yeah.
