The trailer for Where the Wild Things Are looks really cool. I wasn’t even a big fan of the book as a child. I didn’t actively dislike it, but it didn’t play that big a role for me. I was raised more on Janosch, Astrid Lindgren and Erich Kästner for that matter. Anyway. It took […]

Holy Crap, My Subconscious Works in Mysterious Ways

Yesterday evening we watched Aviator and I was confused more or less the whole time because a) I couldn’t decide whether I liked Cate Blanchett as Katherine Hepburn and b) I couldn’t shake the feeling that Cate Blanchett looked about ten years older than Leonardo DiCaprio which kind of ruined the whole Hughes/Hepburn relationship for […]

Adding To Desaster

I will never ever be able to reduce my Amazon wishlist1 to less that 170 items. Which isn’t a bad thing per se, because that basically means I haven’t run out of ideas for new books, DVDs and music. Plus, I never have to spend much time to find something new to read since my […]

First Mix Arrived, Now Humming

Before I even got the chance to mail out my mixes to everybody who asked for one (my swap group excluded) srah’s mix got here today. So I learned where Juliana Werding stole the melody to „Am Tag als Conny Kramer starb“ from and that I already knew „L’été Indien “ (probably from high school […]
