marlene duffy / bottleplot



sorry guys but todays post is german only since its all about a german somelliere who broadcast herself on youtube (in german too) so not really usefull for you ..:-() ..but tomorrow i ll be back in english..big(naughty) boy scouts promise:-)

ha...ich bin verliebt..aber sowas von..ich weiß ich weiß..frühling ist schon längst vorbei und um diese jahreszeit sollte ich von spontanen verliebtheitsbekundungen abstand nehmen aber..was kann ich tun?

nun..ich weiß nicht ob ihr wisst das ich total youtube süchtig bin..nicht?..tja, bin ich aber..nicht das youtuben meine einzige sucht ist aber halt eine meiner schlimmsten...was evt auch daran liegt das ich bei youtube so ziemlich alles finde was mich interessiert..naja..nicht alles aber ich guck halt gerne 80ies musikvideos und hausgemachtes aus dem bereich schamlose selbstbewerbung und pers. broadcasting...

meine lieblingsvideos speicher ich natürlich zum wiederholten ansehen..und weil youtube nicht faul ist stöbern die dann gerne zwischen meinen favourites und schlagen mir dann vor ich solle doch auch mal dieses oder jenes video ansehen...was dann meist der größte kack ist den ich mir dann gar nicht ansehen mag..aber es gibt natürlich auch ausnahmen..gestern zb gab es eine ganz tolle: marlene duffy..ihres zeichens hammerharte kick.ass braut und, was noch viel cooler ist, somelliere...noch dazu eine extrem coole weil ganz ohne blüschen und doofer biedermeiersteckfrisur und perlen...super die frau..okay ich koche halt gerne und da ich in einem weinanbaugebiet geboren wurde und nun mal auch gerne trinke interessiere ich mich halt auch sehr für das thema wein...um so mehr wenn es nicht total vermottet präsentiert wird a la öde weinverkostung wo alle bieder rumstehen und mit besorgter miene nuss frucht und ganz hinten im abgang auch noch bergamotte riechen/schmecken...okay...das sind dinge die miss duffy auch schmeckt..aber nachdem ich mir gestern nacht in einem monströsen marlene-marathon so ziemlich alle ihre videos reingezogen habe kann ich mit fug und recht behaupten das besagte dame besagte dinge schmeckt ohne öde zu sein..vielmehr entstaubt sie das ganze thema wein in ihre grandiosen sendung bottleplot und macht es für ein durchuas auch jüngeres publikum attraktiv...und äh ja..faden verloren..anyway..ganz tolle frau, ganz tolle sendung, tolle vorschläge mit denen ihr euch sowohl an den supermarkt als auch an den weinhändler eures vertrauens wenden könnt..daher:

gucken und genießen:

Ich denke sie (Marlene) ist sehr schmeckt!

Entshuldigen meinem "gebrochen" Deutch (und Rechtschreibung!) Es hat funf und zwanzig Jahren seit Ich bin in Deutchland gewohnt. Ich versteh nur ein bisschen sie gesagt, aber ich passe sie froh auf!

Der Wein schaut auch gut.

Vielen dank!

(Bet you feel great about your command of the English language right now, eh?)

hey craig..thank you for hoping over and visit my small part of blog land...:-)
dont mind your german..it is fine.. i understood all what you wanted to say..

marlene is really cool..not only because she is a good entertainer in front of the cam but also because she gives the whole wine subject a fresh and dusted-off image an dinput...:-)

I really liked that wine seemed accessible and fun with Marlene. So many people get stuffy about wines.

I had a couple of years of German in my high school years (languages never have received the same attention here in the states that they do in Europe, which I hated even as a boy.)

I lived "on the economy" in Germany with the Military in the early '80's. We had a great little semi-detached place in a small town.

I felt kind of self conscious about my German, because German people would say they spoke "a little English" then could hold a nice conversation with me, while I'd be continually saying "sprechen sie langsam bitte, mein Deutch ist nicht so gut!"

But I loved living there; the strassenbahns, open air markets, the wonderful wines and beers...I could go on for hours.

But I won't.

Danke wieder!

hey again..:-)

yes she turns wine in a totally accesable and funny thing-...most somelliers give you the feeling that wine is something for old people who play golf (i like golf nothings wrong with that) and spend hours with sniffing wine to smell red fruits, shampoo and farmers bread...its all dusty and boring...but marlene shows that wine is something for everyone who is into it..for me grown up in a wine growing area wine is both a specila juice but stilla normal thing..and she manages great to shows exact this point of view..

ha..actually i read about your time in germany in your mini-monday post for example (which was great and touching)...

i remeber when i have been to the states for the first time (i was 16 and alone in nola) and i went into a store to ask something and startet with "excuse me i m not from here but i have a question"..and the really sarcastic shop girl answered " oh really..you are not from here..wouldnt have known that"..gosh that was funny but emberassing moment..:-)

maybe you should come back and visit germany again..:-)

I'm sorry to hear about your rude sales girl. The sad fact about Americans is that many are indeed rude, or at the least inconsiderate.

It's not that I didn't encounter a little rudeness from Germans, but mostly people were really understanding when I worked my German on them, in all it's glory. Our neighbors were really great to us in our little German town.

As a matter of fact, sometimes they were too understanding! I really wanted to work on my German, but some who I met, upon realizing I was American would say "I want to try my English out on you!"

So many that I knew just went out on the economy and expected the Germans to speak English. It was funny, because they would insist on the Germans speaking English, and get "Nicht versteh!" I'd break in to my German and get "Oh, let me try my English!"

I do hope to come back some time soon.

Ich verfehle Deutschland!

oh no..she wasnt rude at all..she was just a sarcastic person which i usually like ( i have a very ironic sense of humor) but in this moment i felt like" damned..dan you are so stupid..everyone can hear from a mile that you arent a local..you dont have to mention it"...

it depends on where you are in germany..in some parts you dont finde anyone speaking english..sometimes i feel those people dont even speak german for real..hehe*

have you ever been to the netherlands?..its wonderfull..nice country..totally friendly people those dutchs..and they almost all speak english..:-)

where to in germany would you go when you come back?

Craig Sorensen said...

I never got to The Netherlands, or Denmark which is where "the Sorensen's" came from back in the 1800's.

Actually, where we lived, in a small town outside Augsburg, they didn't speak much English. Actually, I liked this.

I'd love to go where we lived, and to Munich again. I didn't travel as much as I would have liked when I was stationed there, so I'd like to go all around and see more of the north. And the East was closed in the early 80's, so that would be cool too.

Someday soon, I hope!
