The Residents At the Residenz, Munich
Hey Randy, me again, MoM (Moike of Munich).
Here in Munich we have a famous place called “the Residenz”. The same pronunciation like the groups name but the accentuation on the second e .
The Munich Residenz served as the seat of government and residence of the Bavarian dukes, electors and kings from 1508 to 1918. What began in 1385 as a castle at the north-eastern corner of the town (the Neuveste, or new citadel) was transformed over the centuries into a magnificent palace, its buildings and gardens extending further and further into the town.
The architecture, interior decoration and works of art collected in the Residenz range in time from the Renaissance, via the early Baroque and Rococo periods to the neoclassical era. They all bear witness to the discriminating taste and the political ambition of the Wittelsbach dynasty.
I made two pictures with you:
The Residents in front of the Residenz
The Residents inside the Residenz
A Residents Show, uuh, it’s worth beeing alive, see you on wednesday, MoM …
HEY MoM! Thanks for the history lesson and the WAY COOL PHOTOS! Nice photoshop work, dude! R
Hey Randy! I took this picture of you at the Helsinki show. I cried 4 times during the show. Tears of pure joy. Thanks for everything!
Hey Shak! Great photo. Helinki was cool, too - except for the pikeburger of course. R
And when The Residents got on stage, this is what they saw! (Before all those Viennese hot shots filled the seats, of course!)
And when the rich folks got to the top of those stairs THIS IS WHAT THEY SAW!!!
Here is the GRAND STAIRWAY at the Burgtheater. The theater is so cool it has two of these. Back in the old days when the rich folks arrived in their carriages, they got off and took these stairways straight to the box seats. That way they didn’t have to mingle with the riffraff coming in the front door. They were going Straight to the top, They’d never never stop, blah, blah, you know the rest.
Hey Everybody! It’s WAY COOL TIME! This the Burgtheater - it’s where we played in Vienna! Mozart (you probably heard of him) premiered three of his operas here and Beethoven performed his first symphony at the Burgtheater. Mozart, Beethoven and The Residents!!! Sounds cool, huh?
SPECIAL BONUS!!! So several days ago, we stopped in this cool little town in Poland with a completely unpronounceable name. It was a travel day, so we just stayed in the very nice little hotel, and me and Chuck got the SPECIAL MARILYN MONROE ROOM! I guess it was because we’re such big stars and all. Anyway, here’s some great Marilyn pix. I would highly recommend it except that I don’t know the name of the town or the hotel.
WHOA!!! MUSHROOM FLAVORED POTATO CHIPS! Is this the weirdest thing ever or what? These were backstage in Prague and I have to say it’s just WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! Okay, if I had a pikeburger to go along with the chips, it might be okay, but otherwise… WRONG!
And here’s one final picture from Olomouc - an amazing EYEBALL CAKE that they gave us after the show! Okay I know it looks like a cupcake or something in this photo,but it’s because my hand is too close to the camera or something.
And here is the inside of the theater in Olomouc. It was like this tiny opera house or something - a miniature jewel box of a theater and best of all THE SHOW WAS SOLD OUT. What a great place!
