Well, I'm back home after a fantastic weekend full of chilling, watching movies, listening to great music, making/eating sushi and drinking some delicious vermouth. God, I love hanging out with Anika! Ever since we met I have a total girl-crush on her, haha.
Also, shopping! I finally have some new shoes after I wore a pair of these
for like 3 years. The new ones are pretty and even have heels (albeit just low ones). Oooh, I feel so girly! HURTS - Wonderful Life [link]
I love this song so much, you have no idea! PAUL KALKBRENNER - Sky and Sand [link]
Titten, Techno und Trompeten
"Berlin Calling" - soundtrack for the movie or the same name. ZOOT WOMAN - Lonely By Your Side [link]ZOOT WOMAN - We Won't Break [link]ZOOT WOMAN - Memory [link]
The next on my to-buy list!
We saw tons of movies this weekend. Berlin Calling
It's about a rising DJ from Berlin who's ending up in a psychiatric clinic after overdosing at a gig. If you want to know how party life in Berlin's electronic music scene is this movie might give you a good impression. But is is certainly also one of those films where I think "Yeah, that's why I don't do drugs and never will!" Apart from that it has fantastic music! :32012
Mindless "Let's destroy the world with ridiculous amounts of CGI!!" fun. It has a few character moments but overall it's really just about showing off special effects. But everyone knows that already.Tokyo Godfathers
This is one of my favourite animes! It's about 3 homeless people finding a baby on Christmas and decide to bring it back to the parents. The following journey is full of hilarity, weird coincidences and some crowning moments of heartwarming. Although I haven't been to Tokyo I can attest you that this movie shows a quite authentic side of Japan - just not the one that you are used to see.The Fall
Anika bought it some day without ever seeing it. So neither of us really knew what to expect. It turned out to be a positive surprise for us.
"The Fall" is about a stunt man and a little girl who meet while they're in hospital and the man is telling the girl a story and we see what's happening through her imagination. The pictures are fantastic and mindblowing. I also loved loved loved the surrealistic feel of it all. The way their relationship evolves and how the events in the real world are affecting the story and vice versa is fantastic to watch. So, if you can handle extravagant movies you should give this a try!Knowing
Nicolas Cage gets a letter full of numbers out of a time capsule and finds out that it's actually predicting all kind of catastrophes. While most of these lie in the past as the movie starts a few dates are in the future - including the last ominous one which appears to be incomplete... dundunDUNNN
Okay, it was actually better than I expected. Despite some critic's hate for it (after seeing it I don't quite get what exactly was so horrible about it) it's really solid sci-fi/thriller/whatever.Kinsey
The movie about the life of Alfred Charles Kinsey who went out to kill off all those stupid ideas about sexuality that were propagandised in the early 20th century. It should actually be widely known by now - but if you have no idea about this guy and this studies give this movie a try. It's super interesting! Also, Liam Neeson is <3 (be warned though, there's nudity and sex involved)Where the Wild Things are
Little Max runs away from home after
a being a dick
a fight with his mom and ending up in a mystical place where the wild things live. After a light-hearted start this becomes a bit of a drama and gets a bittersweet ending. My, this is such a tear jerker! But a really charming movie. Highly recommended!
Well, yeah. That was pretty much my weekend! XD
Now for something completely different!
I tried to figure out how to continue with my comic project thing. BTW, thanks a billion for all of you who were already giving some feedback!
As of now I'll continue the sketchy pages for a while until I feel confident enough to go one step further and colour them. With 'confident' I don't necessary mean "omg, my drawings suck!1 *dramaz*" but rather the overall story development and scenery. I still need to figure out some of the bigger 'locations'. For Norath's house I already had a few sketches and now I have a model in sketchup and it helps a lot! For the next chapters I'll plan to do something similar.
I have a few thumps for the next chapter but I still need to figure out some details. So comics will continue in a few days!
Just for the heck of it XD
