´´King Lear,´´ one of Shakespeare´s darkest and most savage plays, tells the story of the foolish and Job-like Lear, who divides his kingdom, as he does his affections, according to vanity and whim. Lear´s failure as a father engulfs himself and his world in turmoil and tragedy.
Berlin in den Zwanziger Jahren des 3. Jahrtausends. Auf dem historischen Filmgelände in Babelsberg, wo hundert Jahre zuvor Marlene Dietrich, Ernst Lubitsch und Billy Wilder ihre legendären Karrieren begannen, besucht Annette mit ihrem Mann David den gerade eröffneten Babels Park. Äusserlich ein ostalgischer Themenpark, entpuppt sich Babels Park hinter seinen Kulissen als Hi-Tech Brutstätte für kybernetische Organismen, die Annettes Bruder Jake im Geiste Frankensteins mit seiner Assistentin Baby_Lon erschafft. Was David nicht ahnt: Annette will ihren unheilbar erkrankten Körper verlassen, um als Cyberhure unsterblich zu werden ... Authors note on The revenge of the algorithms The artist formerly known as Annette spoke German as her mother tongue. After her digitization she had to confine her communicative skills to humorless, dumb devices. Doomed to failure, they periodically plot revenge by exaggerations and downright silly wording, but for all we know they are heartfelt fellows you can count on, trying their best to translate Annettes utterances into a comprehensible foreign language. So dont be a party pooper when these anencephalic algorithms do their brainy - albeit unsalaried - job. Try to consider instead the asset of being mentally capable to enjoy such foolish trash.

Berlin in the twenties of the 3rd millennium. Annette visits with her husband David the newly opened Babels Park, located on the site of the historical film studios in Potsdam-Babelsberg, where hundred years ago Marlene Dietrich, Ernst Lubitsch and Billy Wilder began their legendary careers. Innocently looking like an eastalgic theme park, Babels Park turns behind it scenes into a hi-tech hotbed of cybernetic organisms that Annettes brother Jack creates with his assistant Baby_Lon in the spirit of Frankenstein. What David doesnt know: Annette wants to leave her terminally ill body to become immortal as a cyberwhore...

Victorian BDSM Collection Behind the facade of piety and respectability, the true face of Victorian England was rather more...dirty. In these three kinky, sexy, twisted tales, submission is demanded and innocence is despoiled. Are you ready to see the Dark Hearts and Dirty Secrets of the Victorian Age? Story 1: Tupping the Milkmaid Daisy is just a milkmaid, but she has ideas above her station. She dreams that one day, Simon Neville, the son of the local landowner, will take her in his arms and make her his. Then, one day dreams and reality collide. Simon stumbles upon Daisy milking the cows in a barn - and he likes what he sees... Story 2: Debasing the Farm Girl Lord Augustus Rook likes his women to subservient, and he likes to share them. He and his manservant, Soames, like nothing more to despoil innocence and debase virtue. And now, they have a perfect opportunity.... Grace is a farm-girl, eighteen, and pure. But not for long - Lord Rook and Soames intend to have their wicked way with her - hard, fast and without protection! Story 3: Exploiting the Maid Alice is a young maid, new to her job. She he has heard that her new master, Lord Ashdown, is a stern disciplinarian. But nothing has prepared her for his true nature. ----- PG Excerpt ----- Lightning flashed across the sky and a peal of thunder shook the barn, causing the already anxious cows to shift. Daisy patted the cow in front of her to keep it calm. Outside, large raindrops fell down upon the dirt of the corral, prompting the two young men to run for shelter into the barn. They stopped as they entered, looking around at the livestock until their eye settled on Daisy. Dont act foolish, girl. Daisy could not believe that she was here now, alone in the barn with Simon and his servant. The two of them walked over to her and she wondered what would be the right and proper thing to say. She hated that she had never been around them. She should be calm and casual, used to his presence. I hope were not bothering your work, Simon said. Daisy looked down at the bucket of milk, nearly full. It was full enough anyway and this was the last cow she had to tend to today. Not at all, Master Simon. Daisy stood and gave a curtsey. She picked up the bucket and carried it over to one of the large milk jugs, pouring it carefully inside. Wilfred said something that Daisy could not quite discern and she wondered if she should be embarrassed, flattered, or simply uninterested. She did not like feeling awkward. You dont have to be so formal, Simon said. Daisy could hear a hint of playfulness in his voice. Master will do fine.
