der Blick von Linie 7 / the view from line 7

In an unusual commute home, I rode the line 7 tram for 20 stops today. Starting at stop #3 I photographed each one. You can see the series as a slideshow on my flickr page. Link. To see the photos with their station names, start here.

der grosse Mund

"So, I have a question for you. What does the name "Bigmouth Strikes Again" mean?"

"You mean the Smiths song?"


"Well, somebody who is a Bigmouth is somebody who talks all the time, somebody who gossips. Like, "Listen to you and your big mouth." And to strike is to attack... like with 'The Empire Strikes Back.' "



"It could mean, somebody has started gossiping about you, they've attacked you with gossip."

"Oh, that makes sense! You're now my resource when there's something in English I don't understand."

"I mean, it doesn't definitely mean that... some of those Smith lyrics and titles are pretty weird."

"Yeah, that Morrissey, he's a weirdo... I like the Smiths a lot, though."

"Me too."

Translated, liberally, from the German.

Christmas Lights / Weihnachtslichter

As far as I can tell, they actually don't use the word "Weihnachtslichter" in German, but that's what these are.
