The birthplace of the free speech movement at the University of California at Berkeley in 1965. The epicenter of left wing politics in the 1960's and 1970's. A funky college town filled with aging hippies, university students and upwardly mobile young families. The location of the confrontation between police and protestors in People's Park in May 1969, where student protestor James Rector was shot and killed by police. The birthplace of new French and California cuisine through Alice Waters' Chez Panisse restaurant. The city where German film director Werner Herzog ate his shoe. The birthplace of the Acme Bread Company and Peets' Coffee & Tea, the coffeehouse chain that pioneered direct purchase of coffee beans from growers and would influence Starbucks and numerous other chains. Location of Moe's Books and Krishna Copy Center, the first photocopy center in the U.S.A.
Man, Berkeley was the center of the universe in the sixties and seventies.
An extraordinarily handsome, charming, sophisticated Viennese-born actor for over 30 years who speaks three languages (German, French and English) and does a good mock Italian. Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Schutzstaffel (SS) Sicherheistdienst (Security Service) Standartenführer (Colonel) Hans Landa in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds." Adored by women and men aged 16 - 60. Sex on two very fine legs. The very best way to learn German. The greatest über-bingo ever. Purveyor of Der Humpink. The man with the thigh-parting, panty-melting stare. The only reason thousands of women worldwide are downloading dozens of German movies and TV shows with no subtitles whatsoever.
