The Inspirational

House of Frank

With the usual delays (not least of all my recent infection) I finally got round to firing up the House of Cards Blu-Ray collection I got just before Christmas and finished season 1 just yesterday after a bit of binge-watching for the last few days. With those “critically acclaimed” series it’s always a bit difficult […]

[Exit Snape]

Another one biting the dust this week and incidentally for the same reason and at the same age. News just comes in that Alan Rickman has died from cancer at 69, too. To most people out there he will forever be Severus Snape from the Harry Potter movies (which I never really liked that much despite […]

Last Bow(ie)

Sad news today – as in really sad. David Bowie has passed away from cancer at the age of 69.

What Santa will bring

As a result, news are scarce, but some interesting random notes have popped up in the last few days, regardless. First, the long-expected Maxon blog has gone live just in time for you to ponder its deeper meaning […]
