I'm used to commercials interrupting tv-shows. I hate it, but I'm used to it. I'm also used to pop-ups and ad/spy/mal/whatever-ware on the internet. I hate it, but I'm used to it. Right then, just now, I had to check something on the teletext of a Danish tv-channel, and what do I get? Fucking commercials! Not just a small ad in the corner of the screen, no, a fullscreen ad covering the entire tv. I only use teletext to check what's on the channel now, and what'll be on next, it's on most teletext frontpages, so it only takes a couple of seconds, and now I have to wait for the friggin' teletext to appear because of ridiculous ads about stupid dating-services. Seriously, what the hell!?
Oh, by the way, I swear a lot in this post.
I knew nothing about this movie when I found it in some random bargain bin. I tried to watch it, was too tired and fell asleep. After postponing a complete viewing for several weeks I finally saw it yesterday, and was thrilled! Robert Downey Jr. is brilliant in the role as the main character (and narrator), Harry Lockhart, a thief from New York, who by coincident is invited to Los Angeles, to become an actor. He is then whirled into a plot about a murdered millionaire’s daughter, that doesn’t seem as simple as one might think, and joins up with “Gay Perry”, played by Val Kilmer, and Harmony Faith Lane, played by Michelle Monaghan, to solve the mystery about the murdered girl.
First of all, Robert Downey Jr.’s character is hilarious; Harry Lockhart is ignorant and witty, and it’s hard not to sympathize with him, especially when you see the things he has to endure through out the movie. Val Kilmer and Michelle Monaghan both play very well, and the story is very amusng and detailed, I actually had to make some notes along the way, and it’s nice to see everything fit perfectly together in the end. When the movie finally has some cliché moments those scenes suddenly turn into self-ironic jokes, often followed by hilarious remarks by the narrator, which is very refreshing and entertaining.
8/10 – I’m rarely that close to the IMDb-rating, well, I guess it’s nice to see other viewers agreeing with me (or me agreeing with them…).
I just paid for another year using this domain, which means my blog recently had it's one-year anniversary. I'm not really sure why I created it in the first place, probably just because I like writing whatever comes to mind. Well, for some reason everyone around me seems to be creating blogs of their own;
I've been reading Kim Rom's blog for a while, he has a unique talent of making the weirdest things interesting, and his articles in the Danish game magazin >pcplayer is always interesting, so I was positively surprised when Morten Skovgaard, editor-in-chief at >pcplayer, created a blog of his own, because he has a similar, humorous writing style. Check out MortenSkovgaard.dk.
Niclas Darville, another writer at >pcplayer, also recently created a blog. Not much there yet, except for a bit of Bush-criticism, which is never bad. Some of the users of the >pcplayer-forum have also created blogs, both in Danish though: If you're interested in hardware you should check out JacobHL's hardware-blog, for ramblings about math and food (so far), take a look at Thomas Lundsgaard's blog.
Well, sort of. I've decided to start writing in English, which means I'm also gonna translate the blog, so the site will be pretty messed up for awhile. I'll probably get the sidebar and site itself translated today, but the rest of the entries will take a while.
The main reason I started the blog in Danish is because it's the language I'm used to use when writing, so it's more time-consuming when I write entries in English, although I still feel comfortable using the English language. I'm also finally happy with the blog's layout and content, so I'd like some more visitors, the blog being English would logically (hopefully) contribute to this, not that it matters much. Further more, Danish phrases and titles often sound like crap…
The end of another vacation. Being some what interested in the history of the Cold War and Second World War, I was looking forward to see the historic sites, museums and off course the Berlin Wall, in the German capital. I've uploaded the pictures to my flickr gallery - and chosen some of the highlights to show you here:
AquaDom – cylindershaped aquarium with a transparent elevator in its midst.
Checkpoint Charlie – the most famous border-crossing between East- and West-Berlin.
Sony Style Store – 55 inches of pure enjoyment in HD-resolution. Only 3,000 € – approx. 24,000 DKK.
KaDeWe – the biggest department store in Europe.
Some church in the center of Berlin. It wasn't rebuild after the bombings during World War 2, which makes it pretty interesting. The tower to the right is a part of the church, although pretty ugly on the outside, the mosaic creates a beautiful, blueish light on the inside.
Tiergarten – The Central Park of Berlin.
In total: 528 DKK – in average 88 DKK for each piece.
Overall a great trip, very interesting museums about the Cold War and Second World War. Naturally it was also cool to see the Berlin Wall, and the differences between the former East- and West-Berlin.
