Hi! Willkommen zu meinem ersten Blogeintrag in diesem Jahr, der auch gleich noch zweisprachig wird wobei ich nicht einfach eine Übersetzung mache, sondern einen Teil auf Deutsch und einen zweiten auf Englisch. Als erstes möchte ich eine kleine Filmempfehlung geben, denn ich war letzte Woche quasi unfreiwillig in Till Schweigers neuer Romantikkomödie “Keinohrhasen”. Ich war auch schon sehr angetan von … Read More

Me at the Movies

yodahomemoviesLeave a Comment

I think I mentioned it briefly [..no I just checked, and I didn’t…], but last year in October I had the opportunity to be an extra in an german television movie called “Die Todesautomatik”. I was with them for a day playing an east-german soldier first and then playing a warden in a jail. As I was an extra (or … Read More

movie watched – The Prestige

yodahomemoviesLeave a Comment

I love movies but due to many circumstances I almost never watch a movie when it comes out. Neither do I read recent books or play recent games for that matter. I’m always ‘a little’ behind whereas ‘a little’ can sometimes means many years. I fell for Star Wars over ten years after the third movie was made, I saw … Read More

Should Germans Laugh About Hitler?

yodahomemovies, thoughtsLeave a Comment

article at Spiegel Online This question was asked last week prior to the release of director Dani Levy’s new movie “Mein Führer” starring german comedian Helge Schneider as Adolf Hitler. Well, you can read what others said about that. I prefer to know what I talk about (well, sometimes) and therefore I went to see the movie tonight. In short: … Read More

George Carlin / Blogger out of beta

yodahomemoviesLeave a Comment

Well, christmas is over (I sent out christmas wishes on deviantArt this year, so you’d like to read them out here) and therefore it’s time for some serious senseless wisdom again. I just read my daily joke newsletter Cyberjoke 3000™ by Al Lowe and he introduced a video of comedian George Carlin talking about him being a modern man. It’s … Read More

Picasa for Linux

Picasa is a free software download from Google. Now available for Linux! So what, you might ask. BUT: Picasa is (imho) the coolest app for sorting, editing and publishing pictures. I use it with Win**** and it’s really great. Now it’s available for your Linux box. Hopefully Google will feature more software on Linux soon. I don’t plan to switch … Read More

BBC NEWS | UK | Magazine | The Simpsons as philosophy Well, actually I found this article through a thread in alt.fan.blade-runner. I’m a big fan of Blade Runner (book, movie and game) and therefore look through the subjects regularly.

iTunes Companion

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughtsLeave a Comment

Hey, here’s another really cool prog although it’s -only- a widget really. It’s called iTunes Companion and it does the following: It automatically grabs the album title of the song your currently playing and looks for the fitting album art on amazon and google (if you don’t have it already of course). Then it puts it in its own window … Read More

Neues Urheberrecht: Kabinett kriminalisiert Kopierer – Netzwelt – SPIEGEL ONLINE – Nachrichten Apparently they finally did it. Quiet, sneaky and nearly unnoticed the german parliament made a new copyright law. The process has taken some years now and it included new aspects to secure technologies like DRM, copy protection and comparable techniques. They started with banishing all software that breaks … Read More

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
