Kate Nash by Bobo Boom

A new week, a new challenge (or several). There’s always something around the corner, so have a little encouragement song that is, well, about growing up in a sense. And sometimes failing to. 😉 „You’ve come so far,  Well done darling! We knew that you had it in you You can do anything that you want World is an oyster! … Read More

Today I’ve got a more thought heavy song for you, because there hasn’t been a Ben Folds song on a while… 😉 „What will they write about me? What will the version be when all is said and done? Will they remember all of the places seen, the poems lost, Or am I just wondering on? Yeah, I’m just wondering on. … Read More

Her-with-Theodore-Twombly-on-red-movie-poster-wide

Technology is evolving. Transhumanists like Ray Kurzweil argue that in the not to distant future we will have artificial intelligence clever enough to improve itself, maybe even develop human traits like consciousness and creativity. And given that software is already everywhere around us it might well be software that first makes the final step. Could happen, right? No more windows? The story … Read More

This is going to be my review on Mass Effect 3 ([amazon_link id=“B004FPYHBE“ target=“_blank“ ]buy on amazon.de[/amazon_link]), last part of the role-playing saga created by Bioware. It’s going to contain spoilers because the story is what made all the prior Mass Effects worth while and the last part is no different. I’m writing this after approx. 20 hours of playing, … Read More

I haven’t posted in a while, mainly because of this thesis I am co-authoring at the moment. We’re really in our last weeks of writing and it takes most of my time. It’s gonna be le-gen-da-ry. However, I’m also in need of entertainment during those weeks and I try to generate relief by exploring new artists or rediscovering known ones … Read More

Auch die Gilde der Medienbildner sei willkommen geheißen, so dies nicht der Redundanz anheim fällt. Seher und Schreiber berichten uns, dass also in den Vereinigten Staaten jenseits des großen Wassers das sagenumwobene iPad erschienen sei. Es ersetze die Laute, das Pergament, so … Read More

Inside the Actors Studio

Image via Wikipedia I made it quite a habit to criticise televison. Mostly german television, which in my opinion does a great job at ignoring the audience most of the time.
