Wir sind Helden

Been out of town for a bit and got to listen to these guys a lot. They're a German band and they're very good. Usually I find German lyrics embarassing, but these are great. Even if you don't understand a word they're saying, the music is still great. They have all their videos on their website: htt...

Every year the chorus of King's College, Cambridge, UK, does a Christmas carol special. I have one of the recordings, there's more though. Absolutely beautiful. You might also want to check out the Hilliard Ensemble, they sing ... I can't find the words to describe it. Between humorous and divine. C...

My three favorite French comics

I own them all in hardcover in French (expensive!) but they're just toooo beautiful not to own them (go to amazon.fr for pictures) First one (and best one) is "De Cape et de Crocs" (Of capes and eyeteeth), by Alain Ayroles (scenario/text I take it) and Jean-Luc Masbou (design). It's the story of the...

I gave my brother a Boondocks collection, but I asked him first if he'd like it. I've received too many books that didn't interest me to give other people random books, but if they ask for one or some, sure. I've given a friend of mine manga tutorials and romance novels... My brother gets to read al...

I've been mulling this over for some time, and I've reached the conclusion that kids may be exposed to a lot of things, but I'd rather not have them seeing really brutal or creepy movies until they've reached the age of 10 (or preferrably 12) and especially not without someone to hold onto when they...

Bridget Jones' Diary is a love/hate thing for me. I always cringe when she embarrasses herself and I don't really like seeing someone being humiliated for comic relief. Same goes for Romy and Michelle's Highschool Reunion, but that's a cool movie. Apart from that, my brother has given me this great ...

Weird. I heard two songs of them and I thought the singer dude couldn't sing at all, but the music was good. Must have gotten the bad songs...because he can.

The pink girl is great, she's looking so wary of the guy next to her.
