Dream of art
 

The Proposal is an art space in a quite courtyard of Kreis 3 that will be showing 6 different prototypes that the artists hope will be made into fully realized pieces of art. If this wasn’t enough to excite you, the gallery also doubles as a fantastic B&B. You have the chance to sleep in the gallery itself or in a 1977 Peugeot J7 bus outside. A bagel breakfast and use of the gallery bikes are also included. If you have anyone visiting Zurich or you just fancy a change from your own bedroom walls, this may be just what you’re looking for. Proposal No. 3 - The Human Print has its opening, with dj set, tonight.
Thursday 6 pm, The Proposal, Dubstrasse 33a, 8003

Mystery men
 

Signori Misteriosi is the new moniker under which four Zurich guys, all with long and winding musical pasts, have come together to record. They claim Ennio Morricone and Them Crocked Vultures as seemingly mismatched inspirations, but having seen them perform last year, there may be something to that. They play live, and show the video premier of their new single, Duty of Loyalty, at Papiersaal this Friday. This is a double bill, with Jesh in the co-starring role.
Friday 9.30 pm, Papiersaal

Skream and schout
 

Oliver Jones, aka Skream, is one of UK dubstep’s original and leading lights. Having been born in Croydon, ground zero for dubstep, his pedigree is clear. He’s also proven himself to have crossover appeal with the slow burning remix of La Roux’s ‘In for the Kill’ and his own top 10 single.  He comes to BLOK this Friday, accompanied by his faithful sidekick Sgt Pokes. In support are the KillOut AllStars and Dubsludge Collective. 
Friday 11 pm, BLOK Club

Bring the noise
 

As the cities of England burned last year and the wordless youth took out their frustrations on the consumer treats dangled, carrot-like, just in front of them, it seemed as if the time was ripe for a voice to rise above the clatter and move beyond the apocalyptic headlines. I don’t know if Scroobius Pip is that voice but he should be. More poet than rapper, he has anger and eloquence in equal measure and coming from the UK, has that underlying humour to his rhymes that tickle your ears. He plays Rote Fabrik on Saturday. 
Saturday 9 pm, Rote Fabrik

Mini metal, big noise
 

The ewz.stattkino season continues this Saturday with a performance of Never Hang Around by Minimetal.  This is an avant-garde performance combining cinema, performance art and hard rock music. It is a version of the famous Swiss Alps legend, where the creators of Sennentuntschi, an artificial female sex object made-out-of-straw, become the targets of her revenge. As you can tell this isn’t The Sound of Music! I have 3 x 2 tickets to give away. E-mail me.
Saturday 8 pm, ewz stattkino, Selnaustrasse 25, 8001

The Donor
 

What if you were the parent of twin daughters and it was within your power to save one of their lives, but not both? This is the premise for Helen Fitzgerald’s new book, The Donor. Although this may not sound like the most joyous of plots, Fitzgerald’s books are often filled with dark humour and unexpected hilarity, none more so than this one. She is at Kaufleuten on Wednesday to give a reading and answer questions, and I have 2 x 2 tickets to give away. E-mail me.

Milchbar
 

Zurich has the highest club density in Europe, which is great for the nights and weekends but also means there is a lot of space underutilized during weekdays. With this thought in mind, the Milchbar was created. Setting up a mobile kitchen they conjure up simple, well-cooked menus daily. For only 10 francs you can choose either a meat or vegetarian menu, plus a salad and lemon water to drink. They also let you bring your own drinks. I've tried it: My wallet, my taste buds and I are very satisfied!
Monday to Friday 11:30 to 13:30 Milchbar (Abart), Manessestrasse 170, 8045

Guerrilla swings
 

Two Tampa Bay students mounted a handmade swing in the middle of their city. The reaction of passers-by was surprisingly great: first they stood talking, then they started to play and push one another and total strangers become temporary playmates. This simple idea was recognized as such a success that they the city council immediately set-up many more swings around the city. Conclusion: The simplest ideas often provide the strongest message.

Future now
 

The day on which the line between science fiction and reality disappears no longer seems to be far away. This brave new world is especially being driven by the Microsoft Kinect technology. In the video Kinect Effect, Microsoft shows us in the real world what, even only 10 years ago, would have been fantasy for the movies. Lo and behold!

I saw the sea-gulls heading south, a sign that winter is lurking around the corner. Time for me to take off and get some heat into my bones before the dark months begin. I’ll be gone for two weeks but don’t worry, I’ll be back!
Take care and give my love to the city, Ron

Today marks the start of the international literary festival «Zürich liest'14» (Reading Zurich). But I couldn’t find any events in English. Therefore ignore it and head to Rote Fabrik instead, where Bonaparte present their latest album. Instead of words, get a fill of music and you'll still stay in the literary world: their concert will transport you to «Alice in Wonderland». Techno tunes combined with costumes, everything is possible when circus director Jundt leads his band to the stage like his namesake monarch. The difference, they are not French, Switzerland is already a democracy and everyone attending is a winner. 
Thursday 8.30 pm, Rote Fabrik

 
Add to favourit  Exhibition: Boring buildings
 

«Switzerland‘s architecture is boring», was the title of an article in NZZ three years ago. It hit Zurich like a shot of a starter’s gun and became the cause to start a work exhibition with Swiss architects. This year «Architektur14» goes into its third round and shows more than 80 innovative architects. Let me know, if you still believe that this country’s architecture scene is boring after visiting the fair. Entry 18 francs
Friday to Sunday, 11 am to 10 pm, Maag Halle

Add to favourit  Eating: Little garden
 

Piccolo Giardino is not a new kid on the block. But I just realized again last weekend, what a great location it is. It’s situated perfectly for a drink or a bite to eat if your night’s plan includes Langstrasse. It’s just around the corner but devoid of the crude crowds. Instead it comes with an unpretentious atmosphere, a tasty menu and friendly staff. I like their covered beer garden where you can still sit outside, to keep warm, I suggest grog or a carajillo - and ask for a blanket. They show all games by FCZ live as well as the qualifying games for the European Cup that include the Swiss National Team. If you prefer music to sports, head there on the first Saturday of the month.
Piccolo Giardino, Schöneggplatz 9, 8004. Opening hours: Monday to Thursday 11 am - 0.30 am, Friday 11 am - 2.30 am, Saturday 2 pm - 2.30 am, Sunday 2 pm - 11.30 pm

 
Add to favourit  Good to know: Balboa Garage
 

You know that I like to discover hidden gems around town, away from the well-trodden paths. On one of my excursions I came across Balboa Garage, a gym that specialises in functional training. Balboa has three bases: I trained with Angel at Ghetto Gym just behind Kino Roland, was taught by Andrea at Amboss Rampe and I’m curious to see what their latest venue at Steinfels Areal will look like when it opens at the beginning of 2015. What makes Balboa special? The venues are located, where I usually go out, so it’s nice to do something healthy there for a change. Personally, I find gyms very soulless and avoid them at any cost, so the friendly and social atmosphere came as the biggest surprise. From the start I felt like I’m training with a group of friends. The schedule changes slightly each week, so you get a chance to try out various work-outs form Calisthenics and Planet Venus to Kettlebells to Cross Yoga. Subscriptions are 150 francs per month and you can join as many lessons as you like. If you fancy having a look at their Amboss Rampe venue, drop in tonight as they host the finissage of Paul Sieber's sculpture exhibition.

 
Add to favourit  Web tip: Ideal me
 

How do you see yourself? That’s the question photographer Scott Chasserot tried to answer with an experiment. First he took pictures of the participants. Second he created more than fifty versions of the original. Then he showed the versions to the participants and scanned their brain activities. In this way he found out which version perceived the most positive reaction. And this is what it looks like.
