I can’t believe it has been almost a year since I started Grateful Grapefruit. It has been quite a ride – in search of inspiring artists, queer agents and furry creatures.

The zine for horny nerds started originally in German – duh, I’m living in Germany, so why should I write in another language?! That’s what I thought when I wasn’t really thinking. I am living in Berlin for fuck’s sake – “the new NYC of the 80s”, “the place to be”, “the new idea incubator” and all other bombastic comparisons.

So I did a self-reflecting process and took a look around – 80% of my friends are not German native speakers; 60% are queer; 90% are super nerds and geeks and 100% like boys with beards and some fur to stroke. In other words I fucked all the pretentious shit, all the poser stuff, all the wanna-be-design desperate attempts and as trivial as it sounds I just started being or writing myself. Yet, I didn’t want to bore you with all the details around my persona like coffee addiction, sexcapades and failed weight loss attempts. Instead, I introduced you to some weird art, inspiring photography and arousing nerds and FUR.

One year later there is nothing better to do than celebrate all that has gone through the pages of Grateful Grapefruit – with an artist retrospection and a special of 5 exclusive interviews coming next 2 weeks. Some quick name dropping – Gerry, Slava, Brian, Gio, Scooter. But that still doesn’t sound like enough now, does it?

“So when is the party?” asked Voin when I told him about my plans. And that’s just the way it goes in Berlin – a simple question on a cold Sepember evening led to what I will spam you next 3 weeks with:

1 YEAR GRATEFUL GRAPEFRUIT. ZINE FOR HORNY NERDS.

PARTY FOR HORNY NERDS.

All you need to do is:

  1. Save the date – 07.10.2010 (Soju Bar, Kreuzberg)
  2. Prepare to get your mind blown by a concert, 3 live acts and 4 DJs
  3. Wear your most promiscuous yet nerdy outfit
  4. Be there or be square!

Every day of the coming weeks you will get a piece of the puzzle that will build the bigger mayhem picture. So you better keep your ear to the ground. I am off to choose outfits.
