The WTF?

This Blog will end (sort of)…

At long last I’ve decided to not extend my domain registration for this particular blog. I barely write anything these days anymore because – sad, but true – I’ve mostly lost interest in the things I used to geek out about in the past. On the best of days I can’t decide whether to throw […]

Big Brother Hurt

As far as coincidences go, this one is slightly creepy, I must admit. There I was, writing a rant about a certain book, including some remarks about its not so great movie adaptation and two days later the sad news of John Hurt‘s passing hits us. funny enough, if you had asked me his name […]

This is not “1984”!

Usually I try to avoid politics here on this little blog, but this time I really can’t hold on to myself because it just upsets me. Yepp, those 1984 novel analogies. It happens to be one of my all time favorite books, so I think I have to say a thing or two about the matter. Back then […]

Toruk – the first Cirque

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 […]

His last Christmas…

Excuse the cheap word play and the language, but this has been a fucking awful year for the world of music (among other, more serious things that went wrong on this planet, of course). Many “greats” like David Bowie and Prince have left us and now George Michael is bowing out at 53, on Christmas […]
