I hinted at it in the last meme I filled out. I was in contact with a young film maker who planned to produce the second season of a web series called "Dämmerung" which you can watch here on the 3min web series portal. What can I say, I just returned from a ten day shooting, seven of which at the northern coast, East Friesland.

That´s right. That´s me. I was the script girl, the one with the clapperboard. Of course you don´t clap it anymore because we were shooting on digital video/hard disk and not on film, still you need someone to record the names of all the scenes. It´s vital for the postproduction so the cutter doesn´t get caught up in a mess of unnamed film material.

I just watched the entirety of the web series The Line because one of the guys on the shooting recommended it to me. Man, they were a bunch of film and computer nerds. I didn´t feel that much at home since the weeks in the theatre despite the facts that food was terribly monotonous, the shower water barely handwarm, the hours we shot incompatible with any occupational safety and health laws and the weather switching between freezing and windy or raining and muddy.
The people were mostly awesome, funny and could take much more alcohol than I did. I was happy when I didn´t barf after two tequila and two beer.

Oh my, it already took me six hours to catch up on my flist. I´m so glad House had a one week break when I was away.

How have all of you been?

Oh well. There must be some way to get this problem solved. Micropayment, my ass.

And have you heard about Windows 7 yet? It makes me want to cry. How can a multi-billion dollar company be so dense and release seven different SKUs of one OS? Did you know that the producers of the new netbooks are still bound to certain hardware restrictions? They can´t build faster netbooks with more disk space because they´d be forced by Windows to preinstall Vista on those machines that step over predetermined hardware constellations. People don´t want Vista, so the Sony and Acer and what have you decide to keep their maschines small just to be allowed to put XP on it. Gah!
What you could say on Valentine´s Day to someone you love if you, other than me, cared about it!

Last I´ve been so excited about computer stuff was when someone explained "open source" to me.
There be pictures and links. )

Oh girls, I gots me a new fandom. See, this is what happens when your primary show goes into a pause - you become an unfaithful bitch.

Guys, guys, guys!
This is my first post from my new shiny MacBook that arrived yesterday.
I feel like I´m clothing my nerdy baby doll getting all these fancy looking programmes that are so much simpler than on a PC.
I got an adapter too and now I can plug the Mac into my flatscreen TV and watch my downloads in HD. We tested it with Mamma Mia! yesterday.
I think this movie managed actually to be so awful that it was great. I cried when Meryl Streep sang 'The Winner takes it all'.

Other than that - something inexplicable made me watch the Golden Globes from 2 to 5 am just to see Hugh and House not win. But I was of course delighted by Ricky Gervais beer-drunk and Tina Fey´s internet flamer speech.
I think 'Slumdog Millionaire' deserved every price it got. It´s a very inventive and colourful movie with a simple story that doesn´t fail to involve the viewer into the spirit of India. I stopped watching 'Who wants to be a millionaire at the age of, idk, 17 and simply couldn´t be bothered by it any more. So I wasn´t much into the idea of watching a movie that has this show as a major plot point. I heard so many praises about it beforehand that I just gave it a try.
I had seen the film just hours before the Gala and would like to recommend it to you. (Let´s see if you guess the final question of the game too before it´s posed to Jamal.)

Nerd Alarm!

I read a story the other day by [ profile] evila_elf, some kind of "Adult House&Wilson Click Adventure", I´d describe it for a lack of a better expression. You´ve surely seen it... huge fun. It reminded me of those great computer games of when I was a little nipper. Monkey Island, anyone? Oh, those were the days. My favorite has always been Broken Sword or Baphomets Fluch as it was called over here. A starchy American travelling the world to solve a mystery evolving around the temple knights.

You do remember George Stobbart, right? )
