Shamelessly copied from Bigbear - the background of the site sucks isn't the best choice regarding it's readability and I need the characters on a regular basis anyways - so here are hiding all those nifty symbols you may need for your website.

If there's one book that influenced my taste in music, style, art and everything else it must be William Gibson's Neuromancer. I don't know how many times I have reread it. And still a shiver runs down my spine when I come across lines like 'The bartender's smile widened. His ugliness was the stuff of legend. In an age of affordable beauty, there was something heraldic about his lack of it.
Words you can't express in a movie. You just can not.

But obviously somebody is trying hard to do so. At IMDB Neuromancer is announced for 2011.

I'm pretty skeptic about it. Back in 2007 it was already a rumor - and we remember Johnny Mnemonic? A great movie if you're into sci-fi trash (and I admit I am) - but it has nothing not much in common with the short story by Gibson except for the names of the main characters. Keanu Reeves looks good, Takeshi Kitano is as cool as usual and that's it. The special effects are cheap and overdosed, the scenery could be taken out of a TV-Series produced in the early 90's.
But maybe there's hope. My favorite movie is based on a novel too. And Ridley Scott did hell of a good job with Blade Runner. , 27 years later the concept design is awesome. And I'm pretty sure, I'm not the only one who believes it was a visual milestone for cinematography.


Back in 1984 lots of the stuff described in Neuromancer sounded futuristic. With 'a mash of punk, technology, noir and metaphysics' the book was ahead of it's time.
Today cyberpunk is surrounding us, is part of our daily life. We're so used to stay connected with people all over the world, twitter what we're doing (even if we're in the middle of a bank robbery), and know what an AI is.
So maybe - just maybe - it's already too late for Neuromancer to hit the big screen. And I'm only afraid that one of the books which had this great personal impact on me ends up as just another generic Soon-to-be-real-movie.

Having my first second coffee of the day, waiting for the support guy from Unitymedia to call me back, since I-net and phone still don't work properly I found this little gem. And now the day has to be good.

Sadistic like I am, I would love to own a Plug-and-Play Chainsaw.

Instead of slamming my head on the desk I would turn it on, and enjoy the sound. Imagine what I could do with all those idiots who cross my path everyday.

I love cars. And for sure I'm not the typical female who's into the classical xx-type of car.
And checking the wired makes me a happy bunny.



... this is hell of a smexy car. If I would be male it could be part of my wet dreams.

Coffee and cigarettes - without them I can't stand myself. And the gadget of the millennium is available at bidders.

It's the perfect mug for me. Maybe they have oversized ashtrays too.

For everyone, who understands German I recommend Nocti's great analysis of the Final Fantasy-Fandom.
The girl knows what she's writing about - one of her 'favorit' freetime activities is to delete stories which are not conform with ff.de's TOS.
And believe me - if you think the pit is the place where all evil gathers, you can call yourself lucky.

Now I know for sure, I'm back in the city that doesn't exists. Big mistake in trusting the public transportation system on a Sunday morning.
It took me nearly 1 1/2 hours to get to my parents home. So we had a brunch instead of breakfast.

But the soccer-game was fun. My brother made a goal, the new team seems to be pretty good and the new jerseys are smexy.

I finished moving - all my stuff is in my new apartment. I-net is obviously working, PC is doing the things it should do.
Me is a tired but happy bunny ^.^

first, the *mimimi*: I'm sick - have caught a nasty cold. And it's all my mom's fault. Whole family is dying suffering. Dad and brother need reservations at the nearby cemetery.

This leads me to the next point: True Blood. Living in Germany sometimes means you miss all the good shows or get 'em a year later on TV. An article at Spiegel Online caught my attention. And thanks to the WWW I'm now addicted. Although I tried to stay away from all the vampire-hype. I still love my Ann Rice-books, but haven't read Twilight yet. And don't plan to do so. I'm old nostalgic, I know. One who prefers the old White Wolf-RPG system Vampire - the Masquerade above Requiem.
But True Blood is really cool, like most HBO shows.



Alone the opening credits are damn stylish.

And STYLISH is the next buzzword. That [profile] 0_noctifer_0's taste in music is strange exquisite is a fact. And she really is inside me. Otherwise I have no rational explanation for the fact that I really like Emiliana Torrini's Jungle Drum.
Perfect sound while painting the kitchen walls. And I make progress. Nearly done with the whole apartment. Walls look great.
kitchencolors

Will get such a funky crystal chandelier for my kitchen. And I am so excited about moving in the new apartment. And so proud of myself.

the reason why I have to steal my dad's digital camera - I love macro shots. Pure beauty. When I finally have some time I really have to get into it.

rufus_sketches_wipand I came to the conclusion that all Final Fantasy VII Characters have the same hairdresser - damn, gravity does not apply for Cloud's, Reno's or even Rufus' hairdo.
Would love to own the kind of hairspray they use. Then I wouldn't have to run away from my own reflection in the mirror.
My muse is still a little bit grumpy. I have so much on my mind, that I have no nerve to write anything. Although a nasty plotbunny is eating the dandelion leaves in my brain. I have no clue why I feel the urge to write a oneshot from Scarlett's POV.
But I work again on the Doujinshi-project, Noctifer and me started last year. Since there was no hot sex-scene not much dialogue between Rufus and Tseng in ACC we have to do our own fanservice.

Sweethearts [profile] 0_noctifer_0 and [profile] sweetgwen are paying me a visit this upcoming weekend. ( *me does happy dance* ) and Nocti posted this image at her blog:

bielefeld_english

Of course - now that I'm back in the city I was born at all the jokes about the infamous Bielefeld Conspiracy are coming up again.

And maybe I'm really nostalgic and sentimental, but moving back here it's not as bad as I believed it to be. Public traffic still sucks, the buildings are ugly and the Detmolder Strae is a mess.
Home is where the ♥ is. And I need all the ugliness, dirt and architectural disasters around me.

Just dig myself deeper into the secrets of 3dsmax. And I shouldn't model when I'm stressed. The results are ... strange.

coffe_and_cig

First clay render looks nice and smooth. Damn, I've started so many times over that I have no problem at all to speedmodel a stupid cup. And if it was only for an image, I would leave everything as it is.
But take a closer look at the mesh:

coffe_and_cig_wire

It has a touch of modern art - and I have no clue what I did to the poor mesh.
