Homöopathie at its best

November 19th, 2009 | Category: Amüsant,Gemecker,Internetz,Sonderbares

Ich mit meinem wissenschaftlichen Hintergrund halte ohnehin wenig bis nichts von Homöopathie. Aber das schießt doch alles ab:
Die Deutsche Apotheker-Zeitung berichtet.
“London – Einer AP-Meldung zufolge, die wiederum auf dem Nachrichtenportal von t-online zu finden ist, soll eine Londoner Apotheke ein Homöopathikum verkaufen, das aus Bruchstücken der Berliner Mauer hergestellt ist. Das Anwendungsgebiet von “Murus berlinensis”, wie das Mittelchen lateinisch heißen könnte, liegt auf der Hand: für alle geeignet, die sich von der Außenwelt abschotten, aber auch für solche, die keine Grenzen kennen.”

Penny Arcade Adventure

May 22nd, 2008 | Category: Games,Weltgeschehen


Today I had the pleasure to play the Penny Arcade Adventure On the Rain-Slick: Precipice of Darkness.
I got through it in about 6 hours (with half an hour break) what is of course quite fast but there will be more episodes of the game.
I guess some of you already know Penny Arcade from the webcomic which focuses mainly on video games, the video game industry, and gamer sub-culture.
“The strip regularly features the two authors’ cartoon alter egos, Tycho Brahe and Jonathan Gabriel (“Gabe”), who represent Holkins and Krahulik respectively. Holkins and Krahulik have explained that the characters were not originally meant to represent them, thus they are not caricatures. The two characters spend much of their time playing and commenting on computer and video games, forming the basis of the humor in the strip. Another theme, albeit less common, is the use of conflicts between the two in real life. The strip also sometimes refers to other Internet subcultures, and often features in-jokes that are explained by the news posts accompanying each comic, usually written by Holkins.”
So after 10 years of doing comics the guys presented their first game. As I already mentioned It will be in episodes (dunno how many) and you have to pay $19,95 for Windows, Mac or Linux version. I am totally glad that a game is sold from the first day on as linux-version! Usually you have to use wine or wait until somebody adapts it. So I hope that the next episodes will be released for linux as well.
The character of the game is a bit gloomy but nevertheless funny. It’s quite difficult to describe. Also there are comic-passages but the game itself is a 3D-rpg. The principle itself is not really innovative but the story is so damn funny. Things appear you’d never thought of (no I will not spoil details). So if you want to know more about the game you can download a demo-version and then buy the full game. For more information and trailers click here, here and here.
By the way… I guess I should mention that famous Ron Gilbert took part creating the Penny Arcade game. And yes: You should know him. *g*

So, have fun with your new game. I hope you’ll all buy it.

Pirates Of The Carribean = Monkey Island?

January 14th, 2008 | Category: Amüsant

I knew it! When sitting in the cinema and watching Pirates Of the Carribean I had to think of one particular game. You already know which one: Monkey Island! It is almost my all time favourite. How I loved it and I could play it again and again.
UberDirk has written about similarities between Pirates Of The Carribean and Monkey Island. His text can be found here.

And what do you think?
“Na, wenn das stimmt, dann hatte mein Gefühl doch recht. 🙂 Falls irgendwann doch noch ein Monkey-Island-Film kommen wird, dann werde ich natürlich so früh wie möglich im Kino sitzen. Hinter dir, ein dreiköpfiger Affe!”, Dirk said. I’ll be there, too!

Morgen ist der erste Dezember

November 30th, 2007 | Category: Weltgeschehen

Weil morgen schon der erste Dezember ist: Hast du schon weihnachtslich geschmückt? Machst du das überhaupt? Oder macht das $Frau? Interessierst du dich überhaupt für sowas? Alles Unfug und Quatsch?

Interessiert mich echt, wie das so bei anderen Leuten daheim ist.

As tomorrow is the first of December:  Have you already decorated for Christmas? Do you do that at all? Or is that a women’s job? Are you interested in things like Christmas? Is it all nonsense?

I am really interested in how it is at other people’s homes.

Neues Aussehen

November 25th, 2007 | Category: Ohne Kategorie

Mein Blog hat seit einer halben Stunde ein neues Theme. Beim alten Theme haben mir Bilder leider zu oft das Layout zerstört.

Now my blog has got a new theme. Using the old theme pictures destroyed my layout when they were too big (which was often the case)
