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

Nothing new… / Episode III

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

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

changing the world

Do you sometimes wonder how your life affected the world so far? I mean there are of course about 6 billion people on this planet but I tend to believe that somehow each and every one of them changes the world. Maybe only a little bit. I sometimes wonder what would have happened if I had not done a specific … Read More

Somebody

I love music. I know quite a lot of songs and I believe that I know by whom they’re interpreted. Occasionally I’m wrong with that. Just today I realised that the song “Somebody” which I knew from a Best-of-album is actually from Depeche Mode. I always liked the lyrics and therefore looked it up. The version I know was played … Read More

Because that’s exactly what i’m doing right now…Nothing fancy today, just some plain simple boring product placement. *g*First: I added this post using Google Picasa (http://picasa.google.com) in the latest version 2.1 which is localised in many different languages and allows you to blog pictures directly to blogger.com . What I just did…And second: This picture on the right is one … Read More

the quest for magic

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughts, viaLetterboxdLeave a Comment

It’s me again. 🙂I’ve come to read an interview with David Copperfield in a (german) magazine lately and he explained how exactly he became a magician (or illusionist). He said it had to do with him being such an isolated person when he was a child (probably something like a geek or nerd). And when he came into magic it … Read More

I’m just doing some research for a project of mine where I’m going to make a website about hacker culture. There are indeed nice texts (in english) about that subject and I’m going to summarize the knowledge into a nice comprehensive set of web pages for one of my seminars. This is an excerpt from “The jargon file”: mu: /moo/ … Read More

Right to your BONEs… / adventures rolling upon you

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughts, viaLetterboxdLeave a Comment

I just had a look at the website of the wonderful people at TellTale Games, a company that is one of the few still believing in good storytelling and the adventure genre. As you have probably realised by yourself, adventures have not been featured very intensely for the last years. Big companies like LucasArts shutted down all adventure projects like … Read More

music with iTunes

It’s fantastic!I have to admit that I’ve fallen in love somehow… with Apple. I always wondered about their machines and then researched a bit until I finally understood that Apple products always have that little extra thought put into them. They work AND they look good.But they are expensive. And so I don’t own any product up to now but … Read More
