David is going to India and while he is there, he is going to share impressions and experiences on www.indiablog.de. Translations in English, Russian and Slovak already exist.
 
 
Here are David's answers to the fan questions for September and October:

September
What were the reasons for the step to you independence?
I am independent since I was at school, so the step wasn't so big back then :-)

Will it last too long till we hear a new song from PANIK?
I hope not. We have a lot of new songs!

Are you and Timo working on PANIK a lot at the moment?
As much as we can!

October
How much can we hope for a new album from you and Timo?
I can't say how much you can hope but I hope it's a lot!!

Are you and Timo going to play concerts this year?
Concerts? Noo.

Why are you not sure whether you want to release a new album or not?
Of course, we are sure. It is more dependent on outer circumstances which hold it up. We want to do it in any case!

Do you watch your Live DVD "Niemand hört dich live" from time to time?
Haven't done it for a long time, I could do it again :-)

How many guitars do you own at the moment and which one you play the most?
They are 6 now and I prefer the Epiphone Baritone at the moment.

What present did you give Timo for his birthday?
Together with the fans - a micro shoulder mount - which hasn't arrived yet, although the repeated request! I'll call again in a minute!

 
 
Here are David's answers for June:

What do you think of Ondine by Ravel?
I have to inform myself first - the title is not familiar - but I guess it's good as everything by Ravel :-)

What do you think of the bands Unheilig and Evanescence?
Not for me.

If you had the choice, where would you like to live - in  an Irish castle, American mansion or a house boat in Hamburg?
I think the mansion would be nice where... or, no, the house boat would be the best, but in America :-)

If you had fish, what names would you give to them and why?
I do have fish. But there are too many.

What would you do if  Dr. Cox was your dad?
Oh god..

If you lived in Springfield, would you rather play music with Lisa or laugh at Nelson?
Hahaha... laugh at Nelson... :-D

Do you know the saying "Something is rotten in the State of Denmark"?
No.

Do you have a favourite Destination Anywhere's song?
How you feel.

Will you go on tour?
Hopefully.


And Timo's as well:

Will there be some concerts soon?
For sure not by the six of us..

Why are Beyonce's fans the best?

Because: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOhdzpOtF3U&feature =related

Do you believe in life after death?
In rebirth.. ;)

What do you like the most about David?

That he wears pink socks.

What animal would like to be and why?

I guess all a cat does is eating and letting it someone fondles it. So I think that would be the most comfortable. But an orca wouldn't be that bad as well, if people didn't destroy everything at the moment.

Why have you decided to become a vegetarian?

Because I'm not a murderer, hehe :)

Timo, I'm curious if you have ever danced break or you just like it? :)
Haha, no I've never danced.. But it looks impressive..

What is on your "to do before die" list?
Actually, I've already experienced a lot of it, but there are still some things left on it :) We'll see, I'll let you know, when I do them as well..

What do you think about a PANIK biography?
Uff, if I don't have to write it... There were so many bad things, that I don't want to bring it up again.

Is the contract over when the manager/producer dies?
Haha, I don't know. But to try it wouldn't be such a bad idea :)

 
 
As you may already know, Timo directed and filmed the first official video for the band Destination Anywhere to their single "How You Feel". Here is the result after the cutting (also done by Timo):
Speaking of Timo, he has already an official account in facebook.

And David answers your questions at formspring in twitter.
 
 
David's answers fro March and April are already online on panik-david.de. English translation can be found here.

Full version of Linke's new songs can be heard not only on his myspace page but also on his Reverbnation profile.

And last but not least, Juri and his new band gave a short interview for the German radio N-Joy where they introduce themselves and present their song "Matko".
 
 
David gave an interview for the  Czech and Slovak fans. The original can be found on panik-fans.blog.cz.
How are you today?
I'm fine thanks. In the few weeks I took a bit time for myself, to care about all the stuff I didn't pay attention to the last years.

Do you like chatting with fans? (kyte etc.)
Well, ja. Chatting with fans is nice, especcially to get a feedback on the stuff you're composing and doing. As an artist you are in your own world, sometimes don't even get information about what's going on in the world - so it's nice to get some feedback about the work, you are doing.

How do you celebrate Christmas as a vegetarian?
Strange question.. well.. as everyone else too - without meat. :)

How long have you been vegetarian?
2 1/2 years now.

And have you decided not to eat meat with Timo?
No, Timo was faster than me. He decided it about 1 year before I did.

Do you read Timo's blogs?
No, only very rarely. I talk to him everyday :)

As an artist, does it bother you, when people care just about your image and not that much about your music?
No, guess this is part of the job, you are doing.

You visited music school, right? I mean as a high school.
Yes, I did.
Do you think it influenced you a lot?
No, but I think, longer or shorter, this band influenced the system.
(I think this was a little misunderstanding - I meant the school and David meant the band)

Honestly, did you like Czech Republic?
Well, we were there only once - and this is a pretty long time ago.. :) so, from what I remember, yes.

How do you choose which messages on myspace will you answer to?
I try to answer every message - and if there is too much, I just take every second :)

By the way, all fans say 'hi' to you :)
Thank you! A big hi back, that there is a little hi for everyone :)

Ok and now back to the dark times, many things like Grau, Immer noch da, the old version of Revolution, Was and also the videos like Schwul oda was and the old one making of Niemand hört dich were published. How did this happen?
Dark times? Well.. funny times - times without contracts :)
What ever, when we were PANIK (without contracts) we put all our stuff for free into the internet. All this is no secret, it is a big part of our story.

Some people say, any of you doesn't want other people to see the videos, is it a rumour then?
We don't care.

Do you speak english so well because of your family in England?
I don't have a family in England, just my godmother. I practiced english a lot in the past, and have many english speaking friends.

Do you think often about the future? (wedding, kids..)
Yes.

Have you thought about new members of Panik?
No, not yet.

Well and do you think there is any chance for brighter times?
Of course. There is a big author, wise words: Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God. I can recommend this book, to every single one.
I meant for Panik..
Haha
If there is one thing I realized in the last years of my young life, it's that everything always comes to an end - but (this is suprisingly the important part:) "end" is just a "change", and "change" is the best thing, that can happen to all of us. Change happens all the time, it is life, and I am now facing the fact, that I am really, really curious, what my life has planned for me, in my future.
So you're just living your life, taking this just as a part of a big journey..?
Well, I definitely think that the journey PANIK begun is not ending yet. :)

How did you feel after the last concert in Hamburg?
Hamburg? Like every concert else. We tried to make it as nice as possible for everyone.

What was your favourite fairytale?
Fairytale? Shrek :P

Are you going to play In Taxi nach Paris at the Paris concert?
No, deffinitely not. That was just a job I had to do :)

Do you know any czech composer? (from school probably)
Well, I know "Dvorak", but I'm not sure, if he's czech..
He is :)
Fine :)

Have you heard about Panikday?
Yes, I heard about it.

You know this one?

2004 I think :)
Sure I do, I was writing an essay about Rap rock, so I was looking for some old pictures everywhere :)
:D
Not funny :D but I got an A

Facebook or Twitter?
Twitter.

Why did Max leave?
That's long ago and not subject of this interview.

Will we ever know, why exactly did guys leave or they just don't want to tell us?
If they won't tell, no one will know.

Do you remember the czech fans from München?
The last tour? Ja. And autograph session? Too.

And what happened to the bracelets?
Which bracelets? Sorry, can't remember them :)

Do you check your fansites?
Sometimes :)

What happened at the Musikmesse? You wrote something about concert, did you play just with Juri?
I presented a new project, but i will not talk about it yet.

Ok, what's you favourite Scrubs character?
JD

Is there any contact for those, who wants to get an autograph?
Melinda (panik-david.de)

Do you have some more information about the new DVD?
I'm working on it right now :)

And the last one, I guess, is there going to be an autograph session in Paris?
After the concert, yes, we will give autographs.

Thank you for everything, it was very nice of you :)
No problem
:) Ja, thank you for the interview.

David answered a couple of questions for the official Russian fanclub. You can read them here.

Timo wrote a new blog and also advertised one of the Czech blogs. Since I don't have much time for my own translation at the moment and till now I couldn't find another source, I'll give you this link.

As written on panik-franky.de, we can expect a new layout and information soon.  Hope it will be a nice surprise.

Last but not least, if you haven't heard about Panikday, now it's the time. It's an event dedicated to the favourite band - 24 hours nonstop only PANIK music.
When? 27.03.10
Starts at midnight and continues all Saturday :)
