der_gewinner: (I got rhythm I got music)
Hallo, America! Are you ready to rock?

My name is Klavier Gavin, and I have just relocated to Los Angeles to work for the High Prosecutors' office. I originally took the bar exam in Germany, but how could I resist the opportunity to rock the American courts, as well? My brother Kristoph is a renowned defence attorney on this side of the world, and I am hoping to face off with him one day. Until we reach that day, I hope to expand my horizons. I am in America, baby! I have created this blog to make contacts here, and accordingly, all my entries will be in English. (Mostly.) This local feed is a very exciting innovation.

I am also a musician. I play guitar and I sing, and I hope one day to be a rock star, although my true calling is the law. I have a Youtube channel, under the same username as my LJ, but the content is primarily in my native tongue for the moment. Still, I have one cover recorded in English.

I was inspired to record this after my experience with customs, specifically Borginian customs. I was treated like a thief. I was strip searched. (No easy task, given that I wore seven layers to keep my baggage under the weight limit.) And to add insult to injury, they confiscated a packet of marzipan balls I was going to eat on the flight. I was feeling quite rebellious when I finally landed on American soil, and after I slept off the jet lag, I had to record this song. I would have uploaded it sooner, but the hotel in which I stayed charged $10/day for in-room internet access. Now that I have found an apartment and installed the utilities, perhaps I will be discovered, ja?

[insert suspension of disbelief here-- no really, it's Klavier]

Gute Nacht, Amerika!

Well, well. Imagine my surprise when, upon finding my brother here, I see that the first thing he decides to post includes a callout! We'll undoubtedly have the opportunity to face off one day, sooner or later, but I'd rather take that as it comes.

I had no idea Borginian customs were so strict... I'm rather disturbed. I'm sure once you've attained some level of status, things like that won't happen with any frequency. Tell me if you want to press charges.

Give me a call.

I am looking forward to it, mein Bruder! I will make you proud, whatever the verdict may be. The truth is everything, after all, and it is no shame to lose if I am wrong, after all, ja?

It is all good, Krissi. I survived the experience-- but really now. Confiscating marzipan? MARZIPAN.

Next time we will look for a direct flight. No Borginian layovers.

Admirable way of thinking about it. I hope the outcome is satisfactory for both of us, when the time comes.

I can't imagine what problem they'd have with marzipan, but more troubling is that they'd search you so thoroughly when you were just there for a layover.

The Borginian customs are harsh as of late, but with good reason. There's been a number of smuggling cases in recent years.

How unfortunate. But marzipan is too delicious not to smuggle.

Not that it will be an issue in future.

Borginia takes pride in their unique flora and fauna.

And they're adamant about not sharing it with other countries. Their silkworms are highly sought after, however -- perhaps they're confiscating anything that resembles a cocoon.

I am sorry to hear about your misfortune with customs, Mr. Gavin. I hope you were at least comfortable on your flight to America. As a service professional, I wouldn't guarantee it any other way.

Fraulein Quadrat! I am so glad to see you again.

You need not worry on that front. Once I was on the plane, it was zehr gut. I could not have been more comfortable, after you allowed me to strip off my top six layers.

Date: 2010-04-02 04:35 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] iflyfirstclass.livejournal.com
...Indeed.

If the cabin temperature is too cold for your liking, please do not hesitate to call upon any of our certified flight attendants at any given time.

Ah yes-- the new occupant of the office beside mine. I believe I ran into the movers bringing in your... furniture the other day.

Date: 2010-04-02 04:10 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
Such an awkward and suspicious full stop, Herr Edgeworth. Is there something wrong with the furniture?

Date: 2010-04-02 04:23 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] knights-edge.livejournal.com
I'm aware you are a musician, but is there such a need for so many guitars in your office? Not to mention the size of the speakers they dragged in.

But a rather peculiar thing for a prosecutor like you to sing, wouldn't you say?

Date: 2010-04-02 04:15 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
It is an ironic choice, I agree. The greatest art comes from drawing upon your own experiences, ja? Achtung, my experience is clearly with the criminal justice system, and there is something positively decadent about playing the devil on occasion. I am toying around with a song comparing love to poison. Not in a bad way, you understand. Ach. I think it will be better for you to hear it, when I am finished.

Just for you, Fraulein Zylinder. This is from a classic Disney film. I am looking forward to it coming out of the vault again next month, ja?

Ooh, some of those lyrics hit a little close to home!

Catchy, though. I'll be looking forward to more!

Date: 2010-04-05 07:00 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] der-gewinner.livejournal.com
I am glad you approve, Herr Meister. It is true, the truth can hurt, but a good prosecutor will pursue it anyway.

I have a couple original compositions in the works, but I will keep performing covers as the mood strikes me.

Date: 2010-04-06 06:44 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] olympiclogic.livejournal.com
Covers, hmm? You don't take requests, do you?
