Hi movie lovers! There is only a handful movies I would watch twice. But They Came Together by David Wain – for sure! It is so, so funny! So funny. Funny. Yeap. ;-)

So if you’re looking for something to cheer you up during cold and rainy fall days, go and watch this one!

link time #12: have a nice weekend


Dear readers, fall is here. With low temperatures and grey light and rain every now and then. So I was thinking to share some links with things that might cheer you up a bit as well. ;-)

foryoursoul: Have you tried Quartiermeister yet? It is a good tasting bitter beer and a social project likewise, because the brewery donates 100 % of the profit into neighborhood projects that any Quartiermeister consumer can nominate. So if you are in LEipzig, as far as I know you can have it at café/tapas bar Barcelona (Gottschedstraße 12).

foryourears: When it comes to Techno and straight forward Electronica, Sven ‘o’ Vien is one of my favorite DJs from LEipzig. So here is another great set made by him, but this time it’s Electro. (via Mixcloud)

foryoureyes: Eye yoga taught by Paul McCartney. (via YouTube)

foryourmind: Besides a book, I recently also published a short story called “DeMo” (available in English and German). (via finetexts)

So have a nice weekend and enjoy some hopefully sunny days of fall! :-)

movie tipp: matilda


Happy Wednesday! Yes, I know, this is not a new movie. But… I am totally into Roald Dahl right now (I have got a selection of 15 books for my birthday in January and now I am reading myself through it). So recently I’ve finished Matilda. What a lovely story. So sad and funny at the same time. So of course, I had to watch the movie Matilda by Danny DeVito, that I haven’t seen when it came out in the 90s.

It’s a great one. Every character is played perfectly, it has a great selection of artists in fact and a good sense of humor indeed (click here for the trailer). If you haven’t watched it yet, it’s very entertaining. Perfect for a rainy Sunday afternoon. ;-)
