The Mundane

Goodbye, Buddy!

No, not that, and yes, that one. Confused? You quite likely are if you are not living in Germany, Italy or Spain and have never even heard of the man who was Bud Spencer. He has now passed away at 86. Granted you’re not missing much in terms of artistry when not knowing any of […]

Chekov checking out…

The world is a strange place indeed. Cheap puns aside, that scrawny little wretch getting overrun by his own car is just weird. Yepp, the latest incarnation of everyone’s favorite man with fake Russian accent at the helm a.k.a. Mr. Chekov in Star Trek as played by Anton Yelchin has passed away, at the age of […]

Like in recent years, […]

Andrew-JJ-Star Wars

With the imminent release of Star Wars – The Force Awakens on DVD and Blu-Ray just two days away here in Germany (incidentally making it a perfect gift for my brother’s 40th birthday), it’s a neat touch that we get to see a few bits and bobs more of the creative process behind it by […]
