Krötenkampfkunst

Wir waren endlich mal wieder im Kino, heute stand lustiges Kung Fu Kino auf dem Speiseplan mit Kung Fu Hustle. Ich war ja doch etwas skeptisch anfaenglich.

Aber nun da wir wieder da sind hat mir der Film wirklich gut gefallen und ich denke ich kann ihn guten Gewissens allen Freunden von Feng Shui, Exalted und Kung Fu Filmen empfehlen. Ein rundherum amüsantes Filmerlebnis mit vielen Filmzitaten, guten Kämpfen, netten Ideen und Special Effects, die gut zum Film passen. Geht einfach selber rein 🙂

PS: Filmfreunde, besonders Freunde des Film Noir, haben mit Sicherheit auch Spass an “Flicker” (Theodore Roszak) einer alternativen Geschichte des Filme ueber die 40er und 50er Jahre. Wer will kann sich das Buch von mir ausleihen.

we make money not art: Bins and Benches

Greyworld has unleashed in The Junction, Cambridge their solar-powered robotic bins that move and chuckle, benches that flock together and sing when the sun comes out.

Well hmmm, don’t know what to say? Do we need this? Do we not? Is it art? Do we live in a science fiction world?

The “smaller” Mantra

43 Folders: Personal Mantras: Got one?

My mantra – if you can call it that – is “Smaller, smaller.” It’s a principle more practical than spiritual, I suppose. I say it to myself several times a day to try and always remember that small things are easier to do than big things, and that most big things are really just a pile of small things if you break them up right.

That’s one I am using too. Well I try to. Most of the time.

(The mantra list he links to is great as well, have a click!)

Time Management anyone?

Open Loops: Books, Books, Books: Sharing the Wealth

I’ve always been an avid reader on non-fiction for a long time. Specifically, any book that taught me how to do something that I didn’t already know how to do generated a great interest in me.

I’ve collected books as long as I can remember. My current library has over 700 books in it. So today, I’ll share the wealth and share a list of my books on the topic of time management from my collection

The list starts of with one I own myself “Getting things done”. I like the book and I am trying to follow some of the stuff that is in it. It sure helps but it is waaay too much to take it in all at once. Maybe I’ll get another from the list some time …
