Sunday Firesides: Marriage Isn’t a Game of Russian Roulette

To hear a lot of men tell it these days, marriage is too risky a proposition. If it goes wrong, it’ll wreck your life — emotionally, legally, financially. Better to steer clear of the altar altogether. This view basically sees marriage as Russian roulette — a game of pure chance, where you don’t have any idea what will happen when you pull the trigger.

5 Secrets to a Great Friendship

Secrets to a Great Friendship I don’t want to imagine where I would be without girlfriends. Think about it … life without the women who support us when we doubt ourselves, no one to share our sadness with, no friend to call on our way home from work to process the day, no BFF to share our dreams with.

The Infamous Club Scene of Berlin in the 90s

When it comes to the party scene I feel like I have seen quite a bit in my time here since 2000. I’ve known a time before Berghain. There were definitely more underground places, big factory raves, illegal parties in Treptower Park. Everything was a bit more secretive, word-of-mouth was the number one way to communicate places, and these were also changing locations quite a bit, always moving out of the radar of authorities. But there is one big thing that I totally missed out on: The infamous 9...
