ausgelesen: E.M. Forster „The Machine Stops“ (engl. Ausgabe, Penguin Books Modern Classics Fiction, enthält auch „The Celestial Omnibus“)

Posted by in ausgelesen, Review

Das erste Mal habe ich von The Machine Stops im Blog von Sabine gehört bzw. gelesen und dank einer gut gepflegten Wunschliste bei einer Gelegenheit von meiner Familie geschenkt bekommen (danke!!). Was mir zuerst nicht auffiel ist, dass sie auch noch eine weitere Kurzgeschichte enthält: The Celestial Omnibus, die ebenso lesenswert ist und den Menschen den Spiegel vorhält.

‚Pacific Rim‘ (2013) vs ‚Neon Genesis Evangelion‘ (1995) – comparison and discussion

Posted by in Anime, Film

After watching the first trailer of ‚Pacific Rim‘ I really had my doubts and asked myself if it was inspired by my all-time-favourite Neon Genesis Evangelion. There is this catchphrase (to defeat monsters we created monsters), some similar designs and it left me a bit speechless (but only a bit). When the first artworks for a Neon Genesis Evangelion Live Action Adaption went online, I was soooo eager to see this movie. Unfortunately the project was reported as on ice very soon. So I was a bit sceptical that Guillermo…read more

When did Guillermo del Toro fell in love with anime?

Posted by in Anime, Film

  Guillermo del Toro was involved in some movies I really love such as Hellboy, Pans Labyrinth, Biutiful, Puss in Boots and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Some movies didn’t worked for me like Hellboy II and some left me breathless like Splice. Well…even years after watching Splice I’m not sure what I think about the movie. Nevertheless he’s a genius! But the latest news about Pacific Rim and the Live-Action Adaption of Monster made me wonder. Does he like anime? Is it just me or is Pacific Rim very…read more

keep calm and … 10,000!!!

Posted by in Internet, Kunst

Last week I had a special jubilee – my 10,000th pageview at DeviantArt 😀 I’m at DeviantArt for 8 years. It’s one of a certain amount of platforms I tried out for spreading my manga illustrations, manga pages and art in general. There were a lot of platforms that looked cumbersome for me. Maybe there were a lot of conditions what you should upload and what you shouldn’t (data file formats), maybe no security certificates (! this shouldn’t be a problem nowadays !), no chances to communicate with other users…read more

Working with Unity 3D

Posted by in Informatik

My master studies began last october with several computer science lectures like artificial intelligence or virtual reality, furthermore I took part in a poject-centered seminar. The topic was closely related to the virtual reality lecture – we created a game that depends on the mining tradition of our city and we used the game engine Unity by Unity Technologies, which is often simply called Unity-3D. The main topic was to explore the function (and maybe discover the limitations) of Unity and try to focus on immersiveness and good performance. Personal…read more

Why I’m very thankful for the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Posted by in Film

Marvel Cinematic Universe is a term for the sum of all Marvel films. I guess it was created to have a name for all the differences from the comics. It’s even more than that: Marvel Studios is an instance looking over the films that were and will be produced. In contrast to DC Comics, which has not such an establishment. This leads to a great advantage for Marvel, because they can create continuity and guarantee that the storylines fit. Furthermore it’s possible to watch over the production and see what’s…read more

About icons and icons

Posted by in Gedanken, Informatik

My last post, dedicated to Dennis McAlistair Ritchie, was also a friendly reminder for all the computer-science or information technology enthusiasts out there (and yes I’m aware that not everyone noticed my blog or if noticed would read it). Through (very funny XD) tv-shows like Big Bang Theory (<3) and the over-emotionally Marketing strategies of Mac-Apple a new lifestyle was created. It's "common" to be nerd. And it's fancy to have an iPhone and to talk only about apps and how to establish a vpn-connection via their new shiny plaything….read more

Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie 1941-2011

Posted by in Gedanken, Informatik

Again and again people decide to honour and admire people because of several reasons. Sometimes the admired ones are funny, beautiful or loved for their way of entertaining us like in the case of singers, starlets and whatever. The deception is that most people admire someone because of it’s fame. What a paradox. Most of the persons are gaining „fame“ not through hard work but with a handful of luck and nice genetic endowments – things you cannot influence. Sometimes there are people that really deserve to be honoured for…read more
