Where can you find the 5 most irresistible indoor street food trucks in Berlin? What are the 5 best shops if youre looking for Berlin fashion? And what are the 5 most beautiful parks with a genuine Berlin spirit? The 500 Hidden Secrets of Berlin reveals these good-to-know addresses and many more. Its an affectionate guide to the city, written by Berlin explorer Nathalie Dewalhens. She has selected places and details that few people know, like an open-air bar next to the river Spree with a wooden dance floor and a fairytale hut, a crane house with a café, located in a post-GDR industrial area, or a beautiful tango venue in a former warehouse from 1908. This is a book for visitors who want to avoid the usual tourist spots and for residents who are keen to track down the citys best-kept secrets. After having travelled the world Nathalie Dewalhens now considers Berlin as her home. She is working on her first novel there, preferably while sipping a latte in a bar. Philip Bögle is a Berlin based photographer who thinks of his hometown as a city that never sleeps, and as the perfect place to live and work, capturing moments, people and fashion. This series of black-and-white photographs spans the years 2011 to 2015 and restricts itself to photographs taken in Stockholm using an iPhone - a mobile device that the photographer Per Englund first acquired because of its map functions, but which later became an important tool for him. In the foreword, Englund talks about his compulsive photo collecting, unpleasant dreams and the difference between snapshots and pictures and how they occur. Locations, dates and times are given for every exposure in a chronological index. Englund moved to Stockholm from his hometown Gothenburg almost ten years ago, and the camera came to be used both as a shield and as a battering-ram in the unfamiliar city. The result is a piece of black-and-white pictorial poetry in which modern technology meets traditional craft. Dokument Press have previously published Per Englunds books Life Geos On (2009) and The Beautiful Struggle (2006).
This double-sided foldout book takes you on a fascinating journey deep underground. One side of the foldout shows the ground beneath the city, whilst the reverse side shows the ground beneath the countryside. The underground scenes include tunnels and pipes, creatures´ burrows, layers of rock and the planet´s molten core, and run seamlessly into the next. Mixing urban and rural settings, covering subjects such as geology, archaeology and natural history, The Street Beneath My Feet offers children the opportunity to explore their world through a detailed learning experience. And its fold-out, ´laperello´ style, which extends to 2.5 metres in length, is ideal for spreading out on the floor to pore over for hours.

I must maintain control, I must remember why I´m here, Alexis, that´s right, I was looking for Alexis and to heal the wounds in me that were Chris, ´5,4,3,2 and 1 deep, deep, deep hypnosis. You´re listening to my voice and soon you´ll find that even if you want to be able to be alert and awake, you just won´t be able to, you´ve given your power to me, just let go now, just relax, that´s right, that´s right, deep, deep, deep hypnosis, very good now, very good´. On the cinema screen or the screen of my mind, I wasn´t sure, I saw the strange man in the silver cape again. He was wearing a veil, so I couldn´t make out his face and as I began to distinguish the trance from my location I realized that it was his voice who´d influenced my mind on the flight of stairs. I noticed again that the room was filled with outsiders, all seated with me on the floor, for there were no chairs to relax in. The man´s voice seemed to dominate us all and I could feel terror rising through my being. Somehow, subliminally, the man in the silver cape, quite possibly Chris or Lucifer, commanded a man and a woman in the audience to stand and pour liquid onto each of our heads, like we were being anointed, attuned, or ritually initiated into a Satanic - like cult. I screamed, finally finding my voice. ´´No, I´m with God, I´m a Christian´´ and I ran from the room, desperately searching for other alternatives. Next to the cinema screen, I found a small side door, pushed my way through it and was about to run but I found myself in an area with a very large swimming pool.
For more than sixty years, casual observers and architectural aficionados alike have craned their necks to catch glimpses of Harry Gesner houses of Southern California. There´s one hovering on a mountaintop above Malibu, as it poised to take flight over the Pacific. Another is bolded to a cliff so that the site can support a home before the next 60 -foot cliff drops off. And yet another is tucked away on the grounds of the Getty Museum centre in Los Angeles. Maverick architect and inventor Harry Gesner was always drawn to unusual, challenging sites, which called for dramatic architecture and living environments. Houses of the Sundown Sea: The Architectural Vision of Harry Gesner will open doors to these and twelve other intriguing homes, all located in and round the Los Angeles area, accompanied by magnificent photographs by Jurgen Nogai. The book´s scope will be broad, using archival photographs, documents and a rich collection of Gesner´s own spectacular design drawings, blue prints and floor plans to trace his career from 1 945 to the present/ Even in Southern California, a region that has been a catalyst for great Modern architecture for more than a century, Gesner´s utterly unique designs are outside the canons of doctrinaire modernism. Rather, his sensibility springs from his interpretation of the landscape and the messages it communicates to him after days of sketching on a new pristine site. Inevitably, for a man born an raised in Southern California, his sculptural designs are imbues with the vision of an almost primeval California, derived from his parents memories of the relatively undeveloped paradise of his youth. He is a Modernist, but one whose romantic, idealistic nature has caused his truly extraordinary body of work to be overlooked. Until now.
Excerpt from The Debater, 1923 The stage next takes our attention because of its novel arrangement. It is, of course, raised above the level of the auditorium ¿oor, and in the center it curves out, making a stage large enough for speakers or an illustrated lec ture. However, it. Can be enlarged to include the whole gym ¿oor, which is a continuation of the stage. The way this is accomplished ois very simple. A large curtain, made up of twenty sections of sound-proof material is sus pended from a track which allows for the changing of the position of the back of the stage. When locked together, these sections will be absolutely sound proof, thereby allow ing a basketball game and a lecture to be. Con ducted at the same time without! Interruption. Continuing our course, we come out on the gym floor, which is large enough for a good sized class. Along one wall is a balcony, which is arranged with seats for spectators. On the right side of the gym are the boys´ locker rooms with their accompanying show ers. Overlooking the gym are the Physical Directors´ offices, one on each side, for the boys´ and the girls´ Directors. The lockers are so arranged that each pupil has two, with corresponding numbers and the same. Key, one for his overcoat and hat, and the other for his gym clothes. From the locker rooms, easy access is had to the gym and showers, thereby keeping the gymnasium department in one part of the building. The girls´ side of the, gym is a duplicate of the boys´ side. Under the girls´ locker; room, is the lunch counter where hot lunches will be served 011 tables for the teachers and the student body. One duty of the student council will be to arrange for the policing of the lunch counter so that no teachers will be obliged to stay in this room at recess. Farther in toward the street, there is a domestic science department, with its cooking room, and a model apartment, consisting of kitchen, pantry, living-dining room, bedroom, and bath. At the rear of the building, is the Manual Training Department in a very light and at tractive room, which is to be equipped as a machine shop, and woodworking department. Opening off the main room, there is the print ing room where there are two power presses and other necessary equipment for printing.

What I wanted or preferred was of no importance. Not to him. I watched as he went over to a small wooden chest to unlock it, then he came back to me with a key placed in the palm of his hand. The key to my chastity belt. As he bent down to unlock and to set me free, I could feel his light touch of his warm body brush against my own. Oh my god… at that moment, I would’ve given anything for him to take me. The heavy chastity belt fell down with a clumsy thump to the floor. I was at last freed! My caged imprisonment was just long enough for the anticipation to simmer. ´´Mmmmm nice,´´ he said, “you’re so naughty!“ He reached down and to my surprise, he began..... After a few moments he said, “Remember when told you that a woman on the edge is one who could be easily controlled.” I simply nodded my reply. “Turn onto your stomach.” he ordered, he reached under the bed to pull out a box with a special pair of shoes he had bought just for me. A pair of 5-inch black leather boots with spiked heels. They weren't the normal pair of 4-inch heels I’ve seen most at the club girls prancing in. Rather, these were obviously, an inch higher and looked more like ‘working gal heels’ and were much more difficult for a woman to master walking around in without looking like she was going to tip over. He slipped the heels slowly onto my feet before buckling the leather straps around my slenderly, gorgeous ankles. Then I felt something, it was warm and yet strange, like a gel. ´´What was that?” I wondered to myself, knowing better than to dare ask my Master. The next thing I felt was cold, hard steel around my waist. I tried to turn over, but then my Master shouted, “What are you doing? I said to stay on your stomach, you're mine!” He continued however, as I felt an overwhelming tightening of the steel he had carefully attached around my waist and I welcomed this. It was hard to tell though if it was the sensuousness of her fingers, or something else… “Now what am placing on you, slave , is a steel chastity belt. The waist-band locks and this thin 'thong' band that is going from the front, down between your legs, and up the back. Where it will lock onto the back.” He is denying giving me the pleasure I so desperately need, but is this only the beginning? Download ´´Chastity Belt´´ right now!
