Here comes a photo which I’ve wanted to make for ages. It’s a door in our department which went unnoticed for years because it stood open. But one day – after they moved the staff copier in there instead of the public copier – it started being closed.
How cool is that?
What is even more cool is the lovely way that the German language has no problem smooshing words together to make new words. I sure wish they would do more of that here. :-)
Yeah that’s fun as well. But it’s even more weird as ‘Xerox’ isn’t used as a word for photocopying as it seems to be (haven been) done in the U.S.
This sign looks like it’s quite old… from times when there were still proper signs. I’m wondering whether perhaps people did use the word ‘Xerox’ in the 1960s or so in Germany as well and it just went out of fashion.
That would make a great band name.
Fantastic idea with the bandname, Dave!
Now we’ll just have to decide whether the band will be vaguely depressed indie stuff (i.e. lone sitting in the dark little Xeroxraum) or brashly noisy stuff possibly with a heavy dash of electronica (possibly because the word shares all all those Rs and Xes with XBXRX)…
