Lovis Corinth was one of the leading German impressionists. His long and succesful career started in the academic tradition, but evolved through the German impressionism of the Berliner Sezession movement, to expressionism.

Corinth was born in Russia on July 21, 1858.

When A’s a feisty little fuck with a hot temper (probably a mafia boss or something) but for some unfathomable reason has a soft spot for B who’s always trying to push their buttons and see how long they can keep their head attached to the rest of their body for.

A: *casually sipping on champagne like they hadn’t just gone on a gorilla rampage* I may have a bit of a temper…

B: So I’ve gathered. You’re also quite the tsundere.

A: *slams their champagne glass down on the table and glares* I could break your fucking neck

B: Try me : )

Till Lindemann (*4 Jan 1963 in Leipzig, Sachsen, Eastern Germany) is a German musician, songwriter, actor, and poet. He’s most commonly recognized as the lead singer and frontman of the German Neue Deutsche Härte/Industrial Metal band Rammstein. The band is named after the Ramstein air show disaster of 1988, which occurred on the US Air Force base in Kaiserslautern, Aircraft of the Italian Air Force team collided during their display, crashing to the ground in front of a crowd of 300,000 people - 67 spectators and 3 pilots were killed, 346 people were seriously injured in the resulting explosion and fires; hundreds of others had minor injuries. When questioned as to why Rammstein was named after the disaster, Lindemann said he saw images of the incident on TV, and wanted to make a musical memorial. Lindemann is known for his use of fire-fueled pyrotechnics on stage and his baritone voice and song lyrics, which have caused controversy. Among other things, the band has been accused of Naziism; Rammstein were also in part blamed for the American “Columbine” High School massacre (along with German band KMFDM and US act Marilyn Manson), as this was the music the shooters listened to. Some of their lyrics are critical of the USA, usually in an ironic way. Most of their lyrics are in German. Worldwide, the band has sold over 10 million albums, 5 of them have received platinum awards. Till grew up near Schwerin in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, which, at the time he was born and growing up was in the DDR (German Democratic Replublic aka East Germany).

Kaiserslautern, Rheinland-Pfalz in Southwestern Germany. Its historic center dates back to the 9th century. It's home to about 100,000 people. In the city and Landkreis (county) live an additional 50,000 NATO military personnel members (mainly American), who call the city K-Town. The Rathaus is one of the tallest buildings, located in the city center. The bar and coffee shop on top provides a paranoramic view of the city and surrounding countryside. Kaiserslautern’s botanical gardens feature a Japanese-style garden. Another unusual feature is the Waschmühle, an enormous 160-meter public swimming pool that is the largest in Europe. There are several pedestrian-only shopping zones with restaurants and bars.
