One of the first entries here discussed Metro- polis, a science-fiction-based movie released in 1927 by Fritz Lang. Now, 80 years after its première, toy company Stenco, known for its robots since 1955, reconstructed Maria.

Comptine D’un Autre Ete by Stevie Ryan

Published on Montag, Januar 22nd, 2007

Nothing much happened during my absence of You Tube. Apart from another Ooolalaa music clip featuring The White Stripes with „Seven Nation Army“, the Littleloca stuff is still the same and gets kind of boring actually.

Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean 2

Published on Montag, Juni 19th, 2006

We all remember Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl in 2003, I’m sure. Personally, I think, one of the funniest and best movies I have seen in the last years, which might be due to Johnny Depp acting as one of my favourites, the feeling of such easy entertainment with […]
