a quote from my mother to kick off this blog

“There is weird, and then there’s German, and then there’s German weird, and that’s the weirdest of all.”

Barbé Hammer explaining her love for Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman, the movie The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, all of Rainier Maria Fassbinder, the poetry of Heinrich Heine,  and Wings of Desire which was the last film she and I saw in a movie theater together
