A New Beginning, try 2

A New Beginning, try 2

I don’t care much for new year “resolutions” and other such contraptions, but seeing how my last post here was from January last year, while the Drafts folder is getting thicker and thicker, I decided to give it another try. As they say, “perfect is the enemy of good” so I’ll try to focus more on the content and less on tweaking every little comma this time. Here’s to an amazing New Year for everyone...

Fringe Finale — See You on the Other Side

Fringe Finale — See You on the Other Side

There are few TV shows that really capture my interest, but the ones that do tend to combine intriguing ideas, unusual characters and decent amounts of fun in an unforgettable blend. One of the series that achieved this masterfully was Fringe, a little show I discovered a few years ago while spending the night in a Parisian Hotel. What attracted me to this show was less the main premise — in the beginning a simple procedural drama with...

The Plight of the Christmas Trees

The Plight of the Christmas Trees

As I got out of the house yesterday, I was greeted with the first surprise of the new year — the white blanket covering everything, a première this winter (we had a sort-of-blizzard in December, but that doesn’t count as it only lasted half a day or so). I’ve always enjoyed the child-like state almost all adults get into when there’s snow around, as well as the calm, serene atmosphere that descends upon a city when the...

A Billion Seconds Old

A Billion Seconds Old

Sometime one of these days, I will become 1,000,000,000 (one billion) seconds old. Of course, being born tends to be a messy affair, it’s not an exact science, and then there’s all those pesky leap seconds to contend with — so the exact moment will just come… and go… in a heartbeat; I won’t even notice. I remember being a bit apprehensive about the change of “prefix” when I turned 30 years old,...

A New Beginning

A New Beginning

Here I am, at the beginning of a new year. There is a lot to look back on, and a lot more to look forward to… But first of all, there is some recovery to do after last night’s adventures 😉 I spent the New Year’s Eve over with some friends for a gezellig little party yesterday, and I must say I enjoyed every minute of it — especially the impromptu jam sessions peppered throughout the night. Thank you all for a great time...

Hello world!

Hello world!

The last day of some old calendar is slowly drifting away, but the world remains in one piece — unsurprisingly enough. If the Mayans didn’t do it, then what I am about to do next sure will: opening up my web presence again, this time in the shape of this “digital abode” as I like to call it. It’s been many years, and I used to joke that if I finally did this it would be a sign of the end of times… But here it...
