"My favorite scenes were striptease and go-go scenes in groovy '60s nightclub settings," DJ Soulpusher said of the way he developed the motif for his "Vampyros Lesbos" parties. Soulpusher - who will be at Silk City tonight - said he was experimenting eight years ago and trying "to re-create the vibe of those movies" in a Berlin club. An admirer of Euro-sexploitation cinema (particularly that of director Jess Franco), Soulpusher, under the name DJ Franc O, spun parties of obscure funk, Latin soul and French '60s pop with go-go dancers shaking what their momma gave them.

France's Amelie Mauresmo upset top-ranked Martina Hingis, 3-6, 6-0, 6-4, yesterday to advance to the German Open final in Berlin against Jennifer Capriati. Mauresmo spoiled a showdown between Hingis and the fourth-ranked Capriati, who won when Belgium teenager Justine Henin sprained her ankle and retired in a dramatic end to a close match. Capriati was leading 6-2, 4-6, 2-1, 30-40 when Henin slipped while lunging for a shot. The injury spoiled the 18-year-old's chance to claim her second stunning upset after ousting second-ranked Venus Williams in the third round.

Hurdler Colin Jackson and longjumper Mike Powell split a jackpot of 44 pounds of gold - worth about $288,000 - by winning their events at the ISTAF track and field meet in Berlin yesterday. Jackson ran the fastest 110-meter hurdles of the season, and Powell won the long jump by soaring 26 feet, 11 inches to claim the richest prize in track and field. Jackson, the world champion and world record holder from Britain, was clocked in 13.02 seconds, the fastest in the world this year after the 13.04 that he ran at the European Championships in Helsinki this month.

Cardinal Georg Sterzinsky, 75, who stepped down as Berlin's archbishop this year, has died. The Berlin Archdiocese said Cardinal Sterzinsky died early Thursday. It did not give details, but the cardinal had long been ill. In February, Pope Benedict XVI accepted his resignation. Cardinal Sterzinsky was born in 1936 in what is now Poland and studied in communist East Germany. He became bishop of Berlin, then a divided city, in 1989 and was later promoted to archbishop and cardinal.

West Jersey Health System has begun building a 120-bed nursing home adjacent to the the hospital's Berlin branch on Townsend Avenue, hospital officials said yesterday. The $14 million nursing home will be the hospital system's first, said spokesman Ed Weirauch. It is designed for "people who may have no support system at home to help them, or cases too serious for them to go home," he said. Twenty of the beds will be sub-acute units where hospital patients can stay for eight days after they are discharged.

Like the frantic characters in Fantastic Fest favorite Rammbock, we, the living, awake daily to find ourselves surrounded on all sides by evidence of the undead: shambling global economic collapse abroad, a positively moribund economy at home, and a partisan political quagmire in which our leaders appear to be dead to reality itself. Well, that would doubtless be zom-father George Romero's ever-politicized take on the pitiful current state of world affairs; Rammbock has no such overtly forthright message, and although it adds little to the already overflowing canon of zombie-genre tropes, its brief running time is chock-full o' guts.

LOOKS AS IF photogenic wonder Tom Cruise has his "Eyes Wide Shut" concerning Germany's position toward his beloved religion, the Church of Scientology. Still, he tried lobbying the U.S. ambassador to fight for the group's rights in Deutschland, diplomats said yesterday. Mr. Smile, as we well know, is an outspoken advocate of the California-based church, which was founded on the teachings of science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. Cruise met with Ambassador Dan Coats, a former U.S. senator, in Berlin for more than an hour last week, making an appeal for Coats' support in improving the church's status, embassy officials said.

BERLIN - If you don't believe that Berlin has made the move from Cold War hot spot to coolsville, ask one of the estimated 14,000 Americans who have flocked there to study, work, and live in recent years. "The New York Times runs a story every month about how everybody should move to Berlin," says Charles Beasley, 26, an American graduate student whose Berlin digs come with hot water, shower, and monthly rent of just $230. "I want you to say it's really dirty and violent and dangerous.

When I visited Berlin recently to update my guidebook, I also scouted locations for a new TV show. I found the city as vibrant as ever - with massive infrastructure projects in progress all around town. The cranes speckling the horizon in every direction put an end to the idea of filming anytime soon - but the commotion is not a problem for visitors. If anything, seeing all the changes in the works made me eager to come back soon to see the Berlin of the future. But even as the city busily builds itself into the 21st century, Berlin has made a point of acknowledging and remembering its past.

BERLIN - If there is anyone even more upset about the Brexit vote than the British Remain camp, it is the Germans. Especially Angela Merkel. When she went on television after the results came in, she was visibly straining to maintain her usual stoic expression. "We need to stay calm and composed," she said, as if to convince herself. The German chancellor knew that the British decision had set Europe on the road to political disaster - including a possible breakup of the European Union - and that the hopes for preventing a disaster rest mainly on her. I heard the word shock used by every German I spoke with on the phone from London and on the flight from Heathrow to Berlin.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities. There are those who might observe that a visit to Berlin, N.J., was "long-a-coming. " This Camden County borough was originally known by that name, attributed alternatively to shipwrecked sailors looking for a brook with clean water, to stagecoach travelers stopping here on an otherwise boring ride from Philadelphia to the Shore, or, most likely, to the Leni-Lenape and the Lonaconing Trail from the Delaware River to the Atlantic Ocean, as the historic marker notes.

To hear him tell it, Victoria director Sebastian Schipper didn't set out to make one of the year's most daring experiments in filmmaking. The romantic thriller is about a shy, solitary young woman (Laia Costa) in Berlin who goes out dancing only to fall for a rebellious, if gentle, local rabble-rouser. Before the first rays of the sun have warmed the city streets, the couple are pinned down in a gunfight after pulling a heist. A thrilling, dynamic story, Victoria is told in real time with a single camera in a single, 138-minute shot.

When my husband asked me whether I wanted to accompany him to Berlin in July, my initial reaction was: Why? He was going as part of the European Maccabi Games - an international Jewish sporting competition formed in the 1920s that promotes pride and camaraderie - but I was anything but eager to visit the country where the Nazi regime had orchestrated the slaughtering of six million Jews and millions of others. I thought long and hard before making a decision. Over the years, I had gleaned intimate firsthand accounts from interviewing survivors, including family.

Kirill Petrenko? Didn't the Berlin Philharmonic announcement Monday mean Vassily Petrenko? No, Europe's great orchestra has elected the lesser-known Petrenko to succeed Simon Rattle in 2018 - though he barely made the dark-horse lists in the months of heated speculation that often centered on the acclaimed, Dresden-based Christian Thielemann. Petrenko - no relation to the better-known Vassily (who leads orchestras in Liverpool and Oslo) - was named music director of the Bavarian State Opera in 2010 after years at the humbler Komische Oper Berlin.

As authorities hunted the man charged in the fatal stabbing of a Berlin Township woman, friends of the victim and even a state gun rights group weighed in Friday, saying the system had failed to protect Carol Bowne. "In my opinion, the police failed her," said friend Colette Marino-Quinones, noting that the suspect, a boyfriend from whom Bowne was estranged, had not been effectively pursued after he violated a restraining order a month before Wednesday's attack. "Other people had spotted him but the police never did, and I find that interesting," she said.

Antiques hunters and others who tire of baking on the beach or strolling the Ocean City (Md.) Boardwalk can head about nine miles west of town to the hamlet of Berlin, Md. This Victorian-era burg (population 4,500) has a main drag lined with redbrick buildings and bills itself as the antiques capital of Maryland's Eastern Shore. Quite a boast, considering the region's reputation in that department. But the quantity and quality of the antiques stores there certainly appear to back up that claim.
