Viva La Diva?

This year Eurovision kinda snuck up on me. With my health issues keeping me busy I barely took notice of the going-ons before the semi-finals this week. Unlike in other years the anticipation just wouldn’t build up as usual. That’s not bad, though, as diving in unprepared and being positively surprised can be just as […]

The fat Lady sang…

…and she won! Yupp, the chubby girl with her chicken imitation took home the prize and next year’s Eurovision Song Contest will once more be in Israel, pretty much exactly twenty years after Dana International. That could be fun, but it doesn’t change the fact that the song wasn’t particularly good and it seems to […]

Modo, you suck!

It used to be that I was a big fan of Modo, but over the last few versions that enthusiasm has waned to the point of a freezing zero. With the latest version 12 announcement coinciding with NAB as usual I’m even more convinced I would never buy an upgrade even if I wasn’t in […]

Booze Singin’

As the great Eric Clapton, himself not a stranger to the addictive powers of alcoholic drinks, so wonderfully sang once: “Nobody knows you when you’re down and out.”. That is a more than fitting metaphor for the third season of Boardwalk Empire. Interrupted by a few days where I was so exhausted that I went to […]

Rogue One – a grim (and long) Star Wars Story

Our annual little ritual happened yesterday and so just like every year my brother and me went out to see “that big movie of the year” because it so happens the week between Christmas and New Year’s is about the only time we can actually coordinate things to fall in place. It also helps that […]

Toruk – the first Cirque

My relationship to the Avatar movie has always been somewhat ambiguous. I still occasionally watch the thing on DVD (no, the extended director’s cut hasn’t really salvaged this mess) as a guilty pleasure when I’m just in the mood for something really dumb, but other than that I’m probably one of the few people who’s […]
