Nujabes in his studio

As I've been listening very much to his tunes lately I thought about sharing his music with you: Jun Seba aka Nujabes had been one of the very great hip hop producers and DJs in his lifetime.

If you want to know more details about him just look on Wikipedia.. What made him special, for me at least, was his very unique style of music,  since he used jazz elements in his hip hop tunes. The result of this mix sounds fantastic! Some of you may know him from the anime Samurai Champloo, because he was the one to make the opening song and the background music in the whole series.

Getting your notes back!

Yesterday's been quite stressful for me as my computer didn't boot. So I was forced to reinstall my Windows which would've been very easy, if it hadn't been for all my important files and my notes (you know those Windows 7 Sticky Notes). As a result I first created a bootable USB-Stick with Gparted on it to get some GBs off of the Windows 7 partition to create another Windows 7 partition to install it again. For a short period of time I effectively had two Windows installations where one was fresh and working and the other not. From the new one I imported all files to my external HDD. So far so good, but wasn't there something missing? What about my sticky notes? Good thing there's always an answer on the internet and I thought I'd share it with you:

Curious Advertising

I was visiting Toxel after a long time and found an interesting entry about creative advertising and wanted to share some of those ads with you:

I mean who wouldn't buy such a cool knife?

E3 - Essentials in brief

With Nintendo having presented at last, for me at least, E3 is done for this year. Here's what I think about it:

To be honest Microsft didn't appeal to me at all. Their focus was just not in my interests. Of course the market for casual games has been booming, but I am definitely not a casual gamer. Nevertheless it was still enviable how efficiently Kinect works now, but I still think it will become boring after a few tries. There is also the fact that I've  never really been a Microsoft fan to begin with..For all those Halo fans out there: Have fun with a remastered version and a new trilogy!

E3 - First Day

I've been watching everything on livestream yesterday and they did it again! Man excitement is getting the better of me now. Unfortunately only Sony and Microsoft presented out of the big three,so I'll wait for Nintendo and write a longer entry tomorrow.
Still here are some games I'm totally excited about:

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Uncharted 1 and 2 are definitely my favourite games on the PS3 right now and after having seen that trailer, I don't think it'll be changing anytime soon. I'm really excited about the old cast returning in a brand new adventure!Also the Uncharted series has been the only one to fully use the PS3's graphical potential.

New Computer!!...the plan at least.

As my computer is over 5 years old already, you can probably guess how slow it has become. Also not being able to play any decent game annoys me even more. So after having saved up money I decided to buy a completely new selfmade system! I'll probably buy it at the end of this month (with photos and blog entrys!) or a bit later. What I want to achieve with this post are tips to make it better. So here we go:

Hello and welcome to my newly acclaimed blog!

I am a German writer who enjoys to improve his english skills, while writing about his interests.
You'll gradually begin to find a mass of random, but interesting information on this site, ranging from hightech news to movies and even anime! Of course there can be much more, so don't see the named things as limit.
Also for all the native english speakers: If there's anything totally wrong in my entry (I know there'll be far too many commas), I highly encourage you to point that out. Oh by the way, sometimes there even could be a German entry...

Yours sincerely,
