Last night I went to choir practice for the first time in over a year. Mentioning the fact on twitter naturally led to the question what we do, so I went on youtube to see if they had a few examples of the music we like. Turns out they had, and not just of the music, but also of us performing.
A word of caution: These are random recordings that don’t show us at our best; although I really don’t think youtube is right to link to Jimmy’s Infantile Spasms in the related videos column.
In 2009, a few of us went to Milan to take part in a festival called Politicanto. It was great fun and we met a lot of wonderful people there.
In Vienna, every Friday the 13th is celebrated in it’s own unique way. It’s about having fun, but it’s also a political statement, taking back the public space and making parts of society visible that tends to stay hidden.
Does this look like an inner city street to you? It is. That's Vienna for you.
Office towers like this one are very rare in Vienna. The law requires a certain amount of window area per employee, which is hard to provide with a round or square floor plan. Americans who see our office buildings for the first time often mistake them for hotels.
The Donauturm is used solely as an observation tower. There is an open platform, a café and a restaurant at a height of 170 meters.
The Donauturm is situated in the middle of Donaupark.

You can bungee jump from the Donauturm. Assisting the jumpers looks like a dangerous job.
