Spanish Songs and Stop-Motion

I think you can pretty much guess, that I didn’t stop after the first layer of paint. Truth is, I all got it done in one day as planned, but then I was tired that I couldn’t find the energy to load the pictures up to the web and write a nice blog entry, so […]

Evening Tidbits

I’m currently suffering from literary ADD as proven by my current status on goodreads (which I’m trying to see what it might have that LibraryThing doesn’t have): And just because (I really don’t have a reason other than that I’m currently listening to music)… here’s a list of examples for really good cover songs: Clare […]

Culture Clash

This sums up everything that’s wrong with the current season of DSDS (the German Idol) and everything that’s right with the current season of American Idol. Compare this… … to that… … and please tell me that you see what I mean. It’s so, so awkward to watch someone who has yet to realize that […]

Ageless/Timeless

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 K√§stner for that matter. Anyway. It took […]

Last.fm Feature Request

Since iTunes isn’t listening to me, here’s a feature request for Last.fm (and I’m only half joking here). I’d like the guys to kind of aggregate my neighbor data and tell me something like: Your musical taste most closely matches that of a 23 year old male from Denmark. And then I can go and […]

The Upsides of Cleaning Up Your External Hard Drive

How the hell did I forget about Harvey Danger’s Flagpole Sitta? It just went into my Wake Up! playlist, because that’s where it should have been all along.

The Wake Up! Playlist

I recently put together a playlist in iTunes which is intended to wake me up on my way to work each morning. It seemed the obvious thing to do since I tend to listen to the same stuff in the morning to get me in the right mood. I use the shuffle option on my […]

Dollhouse Theme Song

After watching the first four episodes of Dollhouse, I’m not yet as overwhelmed by the show as I want to be, but I have hope that I will be soon. I’m just really glad that Joss Whedon is back and he brought Tim Minear along, too. I really like Dollhouse and it looks promising enough, […]

What to do When

As you all should know I’m a media geek, which means that I hardly ever get bored, because I have enough stuff waiting to be read, watched and listened to basically piling up around me and the only issue I have is that I have too little time. Unfortunately I’m not one of these people […]

Personal Feature Wishlist

Hi iTunes, I still would like to see that “Songs And Albums I Want, But Just Not Now, Because I Don’t Have Any Money Right Now (Or I’d Just Feel Bad Spending More)” reminder list that I think I already wrote about somewhen. Or that might have been water cooler talk. Whatever. Please? Pretty please…??? […]
