Beautiful Frost, frosty Beauty

It’s been a while since we actually had something that you could call winter in these parts, so this year it’s actually nice to be able to go out and get to see some snow and ice. The last few days had the added benefit of an inversion high pressure zone weather situation, meaning it […]

Rogue One – a grim (and long) Star Wars Story

Our annual little ritual happened yesterday and so just like every year my brother and me went out to see “that big movie of the year” because it so happens the week between Christmas and New Year’s is about the only time we can actually coordinate things to fall in place. It also helps that […]

Toruk – the first Cirque

My relationship to the Avatar movie has always been somewhat ambiguous. 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 […]

Eurovision War Song Contest

Ah, yes… That day of the year that equals the madness surrounding the Super Bowl was again yesterday and I actually managed to sit through The Eurovision Song Contest without too much struggling to stay awake (and zapping to and fro Monsters vs. Aliens and The Adjustment Bureau on other channels). Like in recent years, […]

Non-gro(o)vy Trees, Godzilla and then some…

With things ramping up for NAB the usual wave of news – some more, some less interesting – starts building and so it should come as no surprise that the usual suspects join the dance. Traditionally one of those has always been NewTek and despite Lightwave running as an independent business unit these days, somehow […]
