Accepting one’s disability (yesterday)
Growing up with or without a disability is always about accepting what life’s giving you.
Bridge of Spies, Steven Spielberg (last Thursday)
Spielberg is a gifted director, no one doubts that. And once again the film works perfectly and brings us from A to B without a hiccup.
Crawling to pubs (last Wednesday)
I hope you’re ready for the shocking news this post brings: it’s nice to hang around with nice people – there, you were warned.
Fast typing (last Tuesday)
Some things have to be repeated, again and again.
Doing interviews (last Monday)
I like talking to people and learning from them. Interviews are a very good way to do just that.
“Enjoy it while they’re young” (12 November 2017)
Base line: don’t listen to people (too much).
The Winter Guest, Alan Rickman (11 November 2017)
Four stories told alongside, loosely connected. At first it feels like theatre brought to the screen, but soon it’s more than that.
Stop motion (10 November 2017)
The Daughter had an assignment, so the Father learned a few new tricks. The normal daily life of a parent-child relationship.
Oh, the pain (9 November 2017)
There is something people don’t talk much about (if ever): pain and disability.
Plane oil (8 November 2017)
Less fuel consumed on a plane than on a car? How weird.
Photographic glossary (7 November 2017)
Every time I encounter terms like DSLR and APS-C I wonder what they mean, so this time I’ll write it down for good.
X-Men: a mirror to society (6 November 2017)
I’ve said for a long time to whoever listened that in the super-hero market, X-Men had a very special place as a thinly veiled reflection on the American society.
Boxes of books (5 November 2017)
I ended up with too many boxes to fit into my flat. Going from a two-story house to a flat does that.
Digital legacy, so far (4 November 2017)
I was piqued a few years ago by David’s digital legacy article and Karl’s answer and thought about it quite a lot.
Meaningful time (3 November 2017)
I’m a huge “doing nothing” kind of guy, as my entourage can testify.
AMP, and why I don’t like it (2 November 2017)
Google is trying to confiscate the Web with AMP, exactly like Facebook’s Instant articles.
Symbols of capitalism (1 November 2017)
Campbell soup cans and Heinz red bottles are quite as solid symbols of capitalism as the Coca Cola bottle.
Blogvember (27 October 2017)
Yes, it’s a new word.
Desire makes us alive (16 October 2017)
Call me naive, I don’t care. I prefer my naiveté to cynicism.
Artificial intelligence (12 October 2017)
I’m a groupie. My intelligence is somehow often dumbed down by the fact that if someone I respect and admire does/says something, I’m bound to follow them.
