jan und die pins

Jan Göthlich is the technician of the CCR bowling centre in Hildesheim. People that use extra bowling gloves get on his wick. It’s like asking for a special table when you want to play Mau Mau, he says. It’s really noisy in his office behind the bowling alleys. The machines that sort the bowling pins rumble undeviatingly. Since most of the engine parts are made out of plastic, he calls his work „a handicraft work war against time“- Some WD 40, some gaffer tape and everything is running again. When he was little he had a so called Vokuhila, a haircut like the mullet and until recently a ponytail till his hips. He just cut it off, for the pictures and for his mother, he says.
