OpenSource Storytelling and Game Design?

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughtsLeave a Comment

I’m just doing some updates to a little project of mine hopefully becoming a full story on day. And suddenly I wondered whether there has been any attempt to write a story in the way they do OpenSource Software. Like e.g. Debian with many Developers from anywhere in the world contributing to a single project solemnly over the web. I … Read More

The Dilbert Blog: Too Many Coincidences

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughtsLeave a Comment

The Dilbert Blog: Too Many Coincidences This is a very interesting discussion about coincidences. I actually don’t believe in coincidences and my favourite quote from above’s comments is: „coincidences are a glimpse of an underlying pattern“. That’s quite close to what I see in all those little things that happen at surprisingly the right time. But maybe we as humans … Read More

the good sides of globalisation

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughtsLeave a Comment

Well, when I flew to London I was (among other things) introduced to new wonderful products that I didn’t know until then. One thing was a british brand of potato chips called Burts. They handed out free samples on the plane and I immediately fell in love with them. Just in case I didn’t mention it in this blog before, … Read More

Small cities

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughts, viaLetterboxdLeave a Comment

Well, as I pointed out repeatedly I visited London during the holidays and one thing I sadly discovered when coming back was: If you have been to a really big city once it’s really hard to come back to a kind of small city. For explanation, the city I live in counts about 250.000 people and is indeed the largest … Read More

Mind the gap

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughts, viaLetterboxd1 Comment

Probably the most important sentence that I will remember from my five day trip to London. Whenever you go by tube you will hear this over and over again three, times at each station. It is mainly a warning so that you don’t fall off the train when entering or leaving but I suppose it is much more than just … Read More

As I spent a few days in London I managed to grab some pictures of the very huge fireworks at the „London Eye“. Standing on Westminster Bridge all0wed a beautiful view along the river and millions of people shared this event. Unfortuneately that lead to a comparably memorable way home when everybody began to push oneself through the crowd and … Read More

Well, at least, the path lead to three different choices. I mean, the three different computer games based on the „Matrix Trilogy“. I personally played „Enter the Matrix“ when it came out and my impression was that it was, well.. not finished. The graphics were incomplete, some levels looked like the designers created them during lunch time. It was an … Read More

Christmas vs. X-Mas

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughts, viaLetterboxdLeave a Comment

You probably already noticed it the last time you walked across the centre of the city you live in. This smell of sweets all around. Those funny fir trees standing all over the place. Strange people -most of them might look quite heavy- in red suits standing at nearly every corner. And whereever you find a loudspeaker you’ll probably hear … Read More

13 hours Star Wars

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughts, viaLetterboxdLeave a Comment

Sometimes the things geeks/nerds do cannot be explained logically. I’m a big fan of Star Wars and I know some other geeks that are big Star Wars fans on their own. As you know the Star Wars Episode III – DVD came out some time ago and therefore we (three friends and me) planned to do the unbelievable: Watching all … Read More

Do you know that „peanut butter“ may not be called „Erdnußbutter“ (that’s simply peanut butter in german) in Germany? It’s not made of milk and butter in a european-union-regulated-ISO-standardized-german-word-kind-of-sense means that the products have to do something with milk in a controlled manner of production. Or something like that. So, the word „Butter“ can’t be used for this product in … Read More

Sometimes I wonder how all those people writing blogs find subjects to write about. Because when I just sat down to add a new note to my blog I suddenly realized that I’ve got nothing to brag about. Really, nothing. Nothing particularly interesting happened to me and so I’m just here to write that down, just in case anybody wonders…Oh, … Read More

A new blog in town

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughts, viaLetterboxdLeave a Comment

There is a new blog that I’d like to draw attention to, although it will probably get more attention without that than my blog ever will if I’d lauch adverts on tv… The creator of DIlbert, a comic very popular at least among nerds, Scott Adams started recently started his blog. I’ve read it and it’s quite as funny as … Read More
