So here I am…Spooky…author number two on this blog. Liz convinced me that I really should put some of my geekyness on paper…or better…out in the net…so I’m not to blame for anything that will happen here… 😉 Continue reading

Now that I’ve finally managed to watch the remaining second half of MENTALIST’s fourth season (I know, bit late… but I got, um, distracted…), I’m really beginning to wonder where good Bruno is going with this.
MENTALIST has long lost its lightweight charm, but has become a serious, at times even deeply psychological TV series with a dose of humor. Ever since Patrick murdered the man he believed to be Red John, maybe ever since he met Red John one season earlier, things definitely have changed. Continue reading

After watching THE AVENGERS, I knew I couldn’t just leave it at that. Such an awesome movie deserves research on my end – meaning, I wanted to know more about the background.
Buying THOR was never a question; not of ‘if’ anyways, and also not really of ‘when’. Well. I think I did it, like, two days after I’d been to the cinema? 😀 Around the same time I bought a BD player… and thus also the THOR Bluray. Yep. Gooood decision.
Watching the movie with a friend, we both agreed that we definitely have to brush up on our knowledge about Norse mythology. I admit that I initially had my problems understanding the movie. So I unfortunately (I’m so not kidding. Coughs.) had to watch the movie again. And again. Aaaaaaaand… again. I even watched it with Audio Commentary by Kenneth Branagh. I just can’t get enough of it. Damn it being so awesome. Continue reading

It’s thursday. Thor’s day.Yes, that really is the origin of the word.
And what kind of weather do we have outside? Of course. A thunderstorm with lots of lightning. By the way, in German it is called “Donnerstag”, which translates to “thunder day”. Need I say more?

Do you believe in the power of words? Well, I do.
Nine years ago I saw LABYRINTH for the first time. I loved the movie; I still do. If I have to name my most favorite movies of all time, LABYRINTH is one of those on the very top of the list. I can’t exactly say why, but the whole story has so incredibly much potential and inspires me to no end that I have no other chance than to love it.

Chris Hemsworth actually looks like a man.
Don’t get me wrong, Chris is great, especially as Thor, but the moment you take a closer look at his face beneath all this facial hair, you see that he really is 28…maybe a bit younger. He looks SO young that I feel the desire to take and hug him, like I would hug a little brother… *laughs*
(Admittedly a younger brother with one hell of a body… look at these arms alone…)

Did I mention that I’m a proud owner of a Bluray player and a HD TV?
Yes, I can be very stubborn at times. I love new tech, but sometimes I just resent certain things. Same happened with HD when it all started. In tech markets they had TVs that showed a comparision between HD and normal solution, and I always said: I don’t see any difference. And anyways, what’s wrong with the quality we have? It looks just fine. Continue reading
