1. Joerg - May 17, 2006


I am a German Fulbright Alumnus, who blogs for the Atlantic Review about transatlantic relations and the US.

I have just written about TEXAS LIGHTNING, a German country band, which will represent our country at the Eurovision Song Contest.

Contrary to popular belief, many Germans love cowboys, country music and Texas! And more and more Americans love soccer and will watch the World Cup next month. => German-American relations are finally improving again.

Since you are in Texas, I thought you might be interested in my blog post, which includes a video:


Please share among your texas friends.



2. Dave in Texas - May 17, 2006

Oh dear God not the Fulbright school. Es tut mir leit.

Wie geht es ihnen?

Yes, I made straight Cs in German at the Universitat.

Joerg, thanks for commenting. I think it’s cool you have a German country band called Texas Lightning.

Interestingly, here in my part of Texas (central) we have thousands of descendants of German immigrants who settled here from the mid 1800s till 1925. Many Czech and other central Europeans. Galveston was a very popular port of entry. Central Texas culture is very much tied to German culture.

Just watched the video… I like this band. Very sweet. They would enjoy playing a gig at the Gruene dance hall.

best regards

Dave in Texas

Hi Dave in Texas,

I`m sitting here in Berlin, germany reading your comment in the guestbook of Texas Lightning and found your little article about their participation in this year`s Eurovision Song Contest on saturday in Athens.
I will be in Athens on saturday and look forward to support the band there in any way I can.
Later this month I`m coming over to texas with a bunch of german Country Music fans. We`ll be in Dallas, Fort Worth and the beautiful Hill Country.

All the best from the other side of the big pond

Kai in Berlin
Germany that is

4. daveintexas - May 19, 2006

Hi Kai in Berlin,

Thanks for coming by and for commenting. I ordered Texas Lightning’s CD from Amazon last night – I’m sure I’ll enjoy listening to it.

I hope you enjoy your visit – particularly the Hill Country, which is beautiful. It’s gonna be warm (90s) and humid though, so get ready for it. As I mentioned to Joerg, this part of Texas is full of descendents of German-Americans.. German culture and heritage are strong influences here – you’ll see many town names that will surprise you.

Have a good time, and my best regards to you

Dave in Texas

sorry to say this, but i did not know you blogged. i just started commenting on AoS about six months ago, used to do so at LGF, but the people who comment on AoS say the funniest shit i see anywhere, and some of them even seem to be half-way intelligent.(not you). (run-on sentences are common in the practice of law, at least here in Dallas.) this was a great article on guys risking their lives to save lives.

There was this guy see.
He wasn’t very bright and he reached his adult life without ever having learned “the facts”.
Somehow, it gets to be his wedding day.
While he is walking down the isle, his father tugs his sleeve and says,

“Son, when you get to the hotel room…Call me”

Hours later he gets to the hotel room with his beautiful blushing bride and he calls his father,

“Dad, we are the hotel, what do I do?”

“O.K. Son, listen up, take off your clothes and get in the bed, then she should take off her clothes and get in the bed, if not help her. Then either way, ah, call me”

A few moments later…

“Dad we took off our clothes and we are in the bed, what do I do?”

O.K. Son, listen up. Move real close to her and she should move real close to you, and then… Ah, call me.”

A few moments later…


“O.K. Son, Listen up, this is the most important part. Stick the long part of your body into the place where she goes to the bathroom.”

A few moments later…

“Dad, I’ve got my foot in the toilet, what do I do?”

43. vme16 - July 30, 2009

I just got home from an amazing run in the gorgeoues sunshine outside on a chillaxious Friday and I was once again reminded of how beautiful and easy our lives are.

We spend so much time complaining and bickering about basically non-existent problems and sometimes we forget how awesome it is to be here. Sure, tragedies do exist (check out the drunk driving thread for some sad examples), but generally life is easy. If those young adults who were killed by drunk drivers were able to speak from the grave, the first thing they’d say is that life is short, so enjoy it. They really are proof of how short it can be.

Some personal examples of my life being beautifuxl:

-Just spend a week in Canmore helping paint my friend’s million dollar home, while mountain biking, drinking, and getting free room and board. And I even got paid for it!

-Lost my wallet three times so far. Everytime it has been returned. One time I lost it in Edmonton with $70 cash inside, and when it was returned the cash was still in it! (minor miracle, especially in Edmonton!)

-Lost my passport in NZ while on a crazy adventurhe. Got my new passport in the mail the day before my flight back to Canada!

-The economy is finally starting to turn around. So far this week I’ve saved about $200 in travel expenses thanks to the rising Canadian dollar!

-Going to Spain in September for $116 thanks to cmyden and his amazinug travel deal!

-And we can all agree that the Flames getting Bouwmeester for nothing is something we as a group can celebrate! b2wofa

But from time to time I have come to feel that the uninjured world is an riddle, a harmless enigma that is made hideous by our own mad attempt to explicate it as in spite of it had an underlying truth.

47. Wittnauer - June 21, 2010

To be a upright lenient being is to from a amiable of openness to the far-out, an skill to guardianship aleatory things beyond your own pilot, that can front you to be shattered in hugely outermost circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something very weighty with the condition of the ethical autobiography: that it is based on a corporation in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it’s based on being more like a spy than like a sparkler, something fairly fragile, but whose very item handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.
