Hey look! I’m a pro-photographer!

For the last few days, it has finally been freezing. Last night, the first snow of the year fell from the sky. I had to take a haircut, so I walked through the city to take some pictures. Using this simple android app called picplz (which you can download here) I made them look professional, even though they were cheaply shot with my old HTC, which has a crappy (colorwise) 5.0MP camera.

Here are the results:

The temperature will stay below 0 degrees celsius, but it’ll stay mostly dry. This meager layer of snow is perhaps all we are getting this winter, that’s why I wanted to make sure to take some pictures now before it’s gone. Temperatures will continue to stay below zero until at least friday, so maybe some ice-skating next week? Who knows.

‘A Dangerous Method’, reviewed.

Movies

I stumbled upon this movie by accident. It has a 7.0 rating on IMDb and features Keira Knightley, Michael Fassbender and Aragorn. Because it’s a costume drama, I didn’t really feel the urge to watch it. I decided to watch it with the gf, girls generally like that sort of stuff.

The story itself is about Carl Jung (Fassbender), a student of Freud’s then-new psycho-analytic-theory, not about Freud as the synopsis on IMDb suggested. Ah well, Fassbender get´s a new patient, Keira Knightley. Keira is, in this movie, sometimes brilliant, sometimes ridiculous. At one moment  she acts like a spastic patient, the next moment she is perfectly fine. Either I don’t get crazy people and she does, which means I’m wrong and she is a great actor, or she is just nothing more than a pretty face – which I expected after the (first) Pirates-trilogy. The thick and very fake Russian accent she uses doesn’t help much either.

The upside about Keira’s performance is that you get to see her boobs. Multiple times. Yay for boobs. Never full frontal though, but there is some nipple action guys!

Fassbender is sometimes hard to understand if he murmurs something very quietly. Perhaps, in a movie-theater, with the sound on max level, I would have understood him. At other times, he just speaks too fast, which makes it impossible to follow. Being both German and English, he puts together a good accent, which is, when he speaks normally, pleasantly to hear.

Aragorn, however, steals the show with his portrayal of Sigmund Freud. The movie itself takes place over the course of about 6-8 years, in which you clearly see the aging progress of Freud. Not only on the outside, but also on the inside. Who knew that Aragorn could portray someone so civil, so unlike himself? I propose the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor goes to Aragorn. He deserves it.

I didn’t really like the movie entirely, but it did shed a light on the emerging psycho-therapy during the early 20th century. If you don’t have anything better to do, or your girlfriend demands to see a movie, show this to her. It will shut her up for about two hours. Plus, there’s boobs. Everybody happy.

Today, I felt like I had succeeded as a big brother

GamingGeneral

I was sitting behind my PC, as always. I was bored. Instead of shutting down my PC and do something productive, I decided to check Steam if any of my ‘gaming’-friends was online, hoping they would play a game online. None of my (former) housemates was online, so I decided to scroll down and look for other people that might be online. One person in particular surprised me…

… it was my little, 16-year old sister.

I grew up playing Mario games on my Nintendo 64 with my little sister. We differ about 4,5 years in age, so she couldn’t win. Sometimes I pretended to let her win, only to defeat her in the dying seconds. That’s what big brothers do. When we got older, we played on the Gamecube. She didn’t really care for a lot of my games, except Mario Kart, Mario Party and SSX. She got older, and got better. It’s safe to say I still dominated her on every game we played, but there were occasions she bested me.

When I switched to the Xbox 360, the Mario times where over. We did get a Wii from our parents, but that’s not what I was interested in. We played some Wii Tennis and Bowling. When she wanted another game for her Wii, I suggested Super Mario Galaxy to her. She got it for her birthday, but she didn’t like it. It was too hard for her. From then on, she started playing less and less games with me, instead playing girly games like Wii Fit.

When I moved out of the house, I left my Xbox at home. I didn’t have a TV in my room to connect it to. When I figured out I could just connect it to my computer screen, I took the console with me. To my surprise, it turned out my little sister had been playing a lot of Test Drive: Unlimited. I don’t know why she chose to play this particular game, but she liked it.

The weekends, I still spent at my parent’s place. Because my Xbox was still in my studenthouse, I installed my Steam-library on my Dad’s PC. My dad, kind of paranoid about unknown software, was mad at me for doing this. I then showed him that it’s basically an iTunes for videogames. I even made him an account. I decided to gift him some games to play. He didn’t play any of them, except a few.

During the Holiday-sale on Steam, I saw Test Drive: Unlimited 2 on sale for about €4,99. Remembering how my little sister enjoyed the first game, I decided to gift it to my dad’s account as a present. Maybe she would play it for a few hours, I thought.

Boy, was I wrong. She has presently played 54 hours, and counting. While writing this, she is still playing. When I approached her through Steam-chat, this came up

  • Rob-n-Roos: wilde je nog wat kwijt? [Her: Would you like to add something?]
  • [TCKL] Flix-o-tide: hoezo? [Me: Why?]
  • Rob-n-Roos: anders ga ik weer verder [Her: Or else I’m going to continue]
  • [TCKL] Flix-o-tide: ik probeer met mn zusje te praten [Me: I’m trying to talk to my sister]
  • Rob-n-Roos: testdrive wacht op niemand 🙂 [Her: Testdrive waits for nobody :)]
That arrogance. That notion of ‘having to play that game’, no matter what. Reminds me of me.
I’ve never been so proud.

So I heard the internet likes Cats

General

Cats, cats, cats. The internet is full of cats. So, I’ll introduce you to mine. Well, he’s not actually my cat, he’s my studenthouse’s cat. He was adopted from the animal shelter about three years ago. He had been a stray cat for the first 2-3 years of his life, after which he was submitted to the shelter. When we got him, he had to go on a special diet because of the plastic still resting in his stomach.

I think he still equates plastic with food. Whenever there’s something plastic in the room, he starts sniffing it, after which he starts chewing it, ripping it to pieces. We try to teach him not to do it, but teaching a cat to not do something is like rowing up a waterfall. You can try peddling all you want, the moment you take a rest you’ll immediatly be at the start again.

We had a previous cat, which died at age twelve. We started to get mice again, so we had to take some form of action. So we got Dick. Yes, he’s called Dick. He’s not named after the phallic genitalia, but after our nearby grocer, which used to give our deceased cat free food, as a tribute.

Our cat is a fierce mouse killer. We don’t really have mice, but when we do, they’re already dead. Sometimes he likes to keep them alive for a while, to play with. Sometimes, he’ll drop them at someones doorstep, as a present perhaps. Sometimes, he eats them. The sound when he crushes the little skulls is terrifying.

Dick likes to be social. Whenever there are multiple people in a room, he always comes to check what is going on. Whenever there are new people around, he usually jumps in their laps to make acquaintances. He enjoys being petted, not being held. He’s about six years old, so he’s got some years to look forward to. He’s a great cat.

I just wish he didn’t threw up all over the place. STOP EATING PLASTIC, you stupid cat. That’s not food.

As an added bonus: he looks like the ‘Felix’-cat from the catfood commercials.
