This is absolutely hilarious. SAW trying to do Trevor Horn doing Frankie and flailing desperately in the process. The band name comes from the opening page of Len Deighton's Funeral in Berlin,  by the way.

Cry me a river. Berlin is still by FAR the cheapest major Western city as far as rent goes (and there are actually rental apartments available). Compare it to Stockholm, London, Barcelona, Paris...even Budapest, Prague or Copenhagen and the "high rents" people are complinign about here are lower than HALF of that in any other city in the world, much less some place like New York, San Francisco or even Mumbai.

You can't have it both ways. If a town is nice/good/active (as Berlin is), the real estate costs  will go up.

I come from Stockholm. where you've not been able to get a rental apartment for the last 25 years (not without getting into a queue for 15 years anyway) and a tiny studio apartment costs 150,000 Euro to buy. A whole generation has grown up moving around in second-hand apartments, and it's killing the city.

If you don't want to pay "high" rent, move to one of the many, many shithole towns that every country has load of; towns where nothing happens and that attract no "cool young people". It's what I did (although the smal ton I moved to turned out to be really nice, actually).

Good places attract people, and rents will go up - it's simple math.

Just be happy that prices are still as reasonable as they are in Berlin and that rentals are actually available at all. The situation in Berlin might have gone downhill, but it's still notably better than any comparable city anywhere else in the world. Easily.

Dude, stop screaming. it doesn't make what you have to say any more interesting, funny or clear. Sorry, but I had to turn it off before you even got to the first item on the list.

LOL@ seriously choosing the name "Angel of Death" and then sounding incredibly nice and mild.

I gotcha. Excessively tough names amuse me in the first place, but I actually like the fact that you don't (try to) sound that way.

The track is actually by Yes, not YES (whoever they are - Young, Emerson, Squire?).
