ホテル Hotel – Grasshopper Road Tour

September 10, 2017

Much has happened, but hardly any of it seemed spectacular, although it is not much different from last year’s adventures, this year for some reason we are a bit falling apart, it seems anyways, […]

Eadweard Muybridge - a cat running - 1887

ホテル Hotel – not a black cat, rather a panther

June 26, 2017

It turns out, no matter how you want to look at it in reality this black cat is a black panther and that’s it. I have no idea what it is doing here running around at night. Maybe it escaped from the zoo or something. Hopefully it’s hunting the tons of annoying chihuahua around, that […]

June 17, 2017

Since the stint with Uncle Karli something has definitely changed, although nobody wants to admit it, people are in a foul mood. The girls are afraid of being sold, and there is a lot of talk about that, because that is always the danger and around the hotel that is the history here, like it […]

Next to showing the slide-show off I am working since a while on a black cat, or was it a black panther? No idea, it looks weird, also I made a mistake on the left front paw, somehow, or assembled the whole thing wrong. BUT it has some great shoulder-blades, and I did not waste […]

ホテル Hotel – Molly is gone out shopping and Starfish’s got the blues

April 19, 2017

Molly is for once not at her secret rehearsals at “Cafe Leben” but out shopping for clothes, claiming she has nothing at all to wear. (The last time I saw her room I could not help but notice a ton of her clothes being very elegant, some with a serious price-tag.) She left Starfish at home, […]

Very glad and grateful that we even have […]
