This amazing short is a fully computer animated film that you won’t believe was made by a 22-year-old student. Sci-fi is one of the most expensive and hard film genre. A big budget and a lot of people working on the production is a must. But not in this case!
Lechowski studies at the Berlin Mediadesign Hochschule and R’ha is his second big project and his first animated 3D short. He is a big sci-fi fan and the inspiration of movies like The Matrix and video games like Half-life can be seen in his work . Apart from the great story that left me wanting more and the amazing shots, I was stunned that the film was done by one person. It appears that I wasn’t the only one impressed, because it’s quickly gathering views on Youtube. But most importantly, it’s already attracted the attention of Hollywood executives. I hope Lechowski receives a green light on his project, because a full-length R’ha movie will be something a sci-fi geek fan definitely should look forward to!
My friend Petya just got 25 on Monday and I made her this cake I love. It’s easy, no baking, and it’s super tasty. So here is the recipe:
Grumpy cat is grumpy
Self-made nail art
Okay, I know that the title of today’s post sounds like the title of a school essay assignment gone bad, but that’s what happened to me today. I’ve always been a little cautious about ordering stuff online. Maybe because I like doing my actual shopping and seeing the things I want “in real life”, or maybe because I don’t trust that the online sellers will send me the exact thing I purchased. Or maybe I’m a little old-fashioned. No matter the reason, I prefer to dodge ebay. I’ve seen what it can do to people, their time and, most of all, their bank account. But I’ve been in love with these sneakers for a long time now, and I couldn’t find the anywhere here in Bulgaria. So after quite the consideration, I was like “What the hell, everybody does it, and I really want them”. I got my card out, suppressed the urge to stop myself and 10-20 days from today I’ll have these amazing shoes on my feet 🙂
Apart from being a movie junky, I’m a big fan of the magic of modern television and mostly of good TV series. I think my fascination started when I was a very little kid with “The Flintstones” and “ALF”. Since then I’ve refined my taste and expanded my choices and now I’m watching like 10 different shows. Last week I decided it’s time to check what’s new and these two catched my attention.
I’ve always thought that a good pilot needs a captivating story that makes you feel connected to the characters in it. And the first episode of Arrow delivered all that. And more! This dark and gritty Green Arrow is a great one and you can see how what happened at the start has affected him and the difference is portrayed well by the other cast members. Stephen Amell switches aptly from being the fierce vigilante to the irresponsible billionaire playboy which is one of the many things that makes me think of Christian Bale’s Batman. I see a lot of potential and, if the show continues to provide the quality it has shown so far, I can see it running a long time!
Beauty and the Beast
Some people are criticizing this because it’s based on the 80s version that, I have to admit, I’ve never seen. I’m sure there are differences, but it’s like book vs movie…it can never be quite what you have expected. This is the CW and the series are not going to win an Emmy, but f you are up for entertainment, excitement, and a love story with a supernatural action twist, it really delivers. Jay Ryan is well cast as Vincent and I like the determined and ready to kick ass Beauty that Kristin Kreuk portraits. Moreover, J.T. and Tess bring a nice comic relief, and they are great supporting characters for Vincent and Catherine. So far as the story is concerned, I like that the writers concentrate on establishing the two main characters and their relationship. The cop part is also pretty enjoyable and it’s interwoven well with their interactions. I definitely will continue to watch it and I hope others will get hooked too!
Getting back to work after a long vacation is like being tied to a rope overhanging a tank of piranhas and then someone slowly starts cutting the rope. Ok, it’s not that bad, but you know the feeling. Returning to work after the holidays rarely goes smoothly. If you’re oblivious to the work pandemonium because you’re still in a time-off daze on your first week back, the jumble will start to settle in soon enough. Your to-do list has considerable proportions, the number of unread emails seems overwhelming, and your reactions to even trivial things is laughable. I’m grateful I have my friend Petya as my colleague and we find ways to distract ourselves from the office confusion. Like taking these pics yesterday:
