Redlands is a graphic novel that we picked up during our trip to London to see Hamilton (briefly mentioned here) we stopped by Forbidden Planet and a graphic novel caught my eye. Redlands is something you might describe as: If Tarantino directed True Blood, took out the clichés and Frank Miller came up with the […]
Storm Seeker, as many things, is somewhat of a random discovery through YouTube. It’s relatively easy (Pirate) Folk Metal and include Cello and Hurdy Gurdy in their music. Otherwise the music is very melodic and has real party potential with fast drums and easy comprehensible lyrics that circle around the sea, pirates (obviously) and ultimatively: […]
Sometimes I think I should really travel more and just listen to strangers conversations. When we were on top of Primrose Hill in London we listened to a couple of teenage boys talking about a… well, not super great TV show: I’m watching Jessica Jones. It’s a bit shit. But I like it. These three […]
I recently was sent a tweet about popular culture, mainly: HOT DAMN SOMEONE FINALLY NUTSHELLED IT pic.twitter.com/ogYTnXaWMM — 🎶&HrNameShallBCalléd:Gw1nderful🎶 (@Gw1Valentine) April 16, 2018 Fight Club Rick and Morty A Clockwork Orange Catcher in the Rye and the short Tumblr post/comment thread warns anyone who knows somebody of these things to be their favourite work […]

I came across this graphic in three parts of perceived causes of death, news site headlines and actual causes of death in comparison. Original Reddit Post The difference in certain areas isn’t surprising to me, for example that deaths in the media caused by terrorism gain much more attention. Even if you would run the […]
When people ask me how I am, the answer usually is wonderful, which doesn’t necessarily reflect the absolute truth, but it does reflect the general picture quite well. I was lucky to build a life that went beyond of what I would have expected few years ago and certainly goes far beyond my lack of […]
Things on this Blog a lot of times show things or mention things. Maybe the most telling series is the Music Mondays, because without all these wonderful people making music, I would get nothing done at all. Some of the blog posts resulted in very long conversations with some of my peers and we had […]
If you’re mining Monero, you might have heard of the currency getting some bad press because several botnets pushed miners out to their clients. This is one of the reasons why the core team decided to upgrade the protocol. You can find their official statement on getmonero.org.
