Ode to my bed (Verse Two)

The first verse is taken from here.

Verse One

Bed dear bed
how I loves thee.

In a cold winter’s night
thou keeps warm me.
I close my eyes, I go to sleep,
thou helps me dream
by counting sheep.

Bed dear bed
how I adore thee.

Every night I crave to be,
sung to sleep by lullabies from thee.

Verse Two

Bed, dear bed,
how I admire
the way you relax me
when I tire.

Every night
when I twist and turn.

Every hour
that I yearn
for a good night’s sleep
for some rest
I know you’re there
and do your best.

Bed dear bed
How I adore thee.

Every night I crave to be,
sung to sleep by lullabies from thee.

Samsung R50 WVM 1730 Disassembled

In my second year as a trainee (nine long years ago) I bought myself a Samsung R50 notebook to replace my aging desktop PC and also take it with me to school (and play games on it – at home of course). At the time this computer was very efficient from a mobile perspective and also well suited to play serious games. Of course, at some point several years later its age became apparent and this year on April 8 the installed operating system, Windows XP, finally became officially obsolete. Since then the computer was sitting at my mother’s house, waiting for… well… a resurrection!Read More »

The Most Powerful First Song of an Album (Pt. 2)

In the first „The Most Powerful First Song of an Album“ I stopped after five tracks, just because I had already written a lot of words. But it also made sense from the perspective of how many items I actually have on my list. If it all works out (read: this post will be quite long as well) then there will be another post with the last five tracks.

So, let’s continue with the next five songs, shall we?Read More »

The Most Powerful First Song of an Album (Pt. 1)

It’s about time to get back to some music. This time though, I’m not writing a review of an album but I rather picked the first song of several albums I own, based on the premise that it is one hell of an opener to the record.

I developed the idea over quite a long time span, initiated by a few songs that are on the list and a few that are not, simply because they’re not the first track of the album. There are some songs that are so stunning that you can’t stop hitting replay once they’re over. They are just mind-blowing, either by very intelligent arrangements, melodies and outstanding individual performances or very simple, primal brute force. This is about those kind of songs.

First Attempts at Drawing

One of the reasons I bought an iPad was to read digital comics. Now, a year later I not only like reading them but appreciate the art of drawing so much that I started drawing myself. To be absolutely clear, other than art classes at school – which were of no interest to me and are long gone now – I have no experience whatsoever. So I started searching on the internet for resources on how to start. I found something on the iBook Store which in turn led me to a series of Youtube videos by Stan Lee and John Buscema on how to draw comics – The Marvel Way! These videos are so unbelievably old, they’re talking about pausing the tape in order to draw what was just discussed and shown! So I did as I was told and here are the results.
