  1. Autechre - Cichli (Chiastic Slide) - nine minutes of the perfect mix between abstract and melodic IDM

    Melt Banana - Scratch or Stitch (MxBx 1998: 13000 miles...) - most mindblowingly awesome opener for a live recording, ever.

    Idle Thumb's Photo Essays - stunning pieces of art

    Idle Thumb's artwork - nearly as stunning

    Samuel Adams Boston Ale - made me like american beer

  2. You should definitely see it again, the "final" version. Apparently Wong Kar-Wai wasn't completely satisfied with the cut shown at Cannes (didn't he edit it right up until the moment it was shown?).

    I found this quote here

    When Wong-Kar Wai's 2046 was unveiled in Cannes last year, as a work in progress, some critics swooned, many scratched their heads, and most ground their teeth at the fact that Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song" featured not less than five times. Now completed, recut and four minutes longer, 2046 begins to make some sort of sense - not that it's any more linear - and Nat, mercifully, is down to two plays.

  3. Has 2046 actually been finished? I saw it at Cannes and was a bit disappointed with the cut, although it was indeed beautiful, as is to be expected. Even with Tarantino as president of the jury, it didn't win anything. Anyway, I never heard that it was actually released. What country did you see it in?

    Yeah, it's been finished for quite some time now, but it's true that Kar-Wai re-cut it after Cannes. I saw it in Sweden, which means it must've been showing in a lot of other countries as well, I presume.

    It's probably my favourite movie from last year. It's amazing.

  4. which is quite long for a car so I can't imagine you haven't seen it before. Either you don't know much about cars, or you're not a real Swede! Or aren't Volvo's very common in Sweden? That would be weird. :fart:

    I don't recall having seen one of those before, but, it's not like I can remember every kind of car I've ever seen. As you said, it's rare and a sportscar. Maybe we just didn't get it. It doesn't seem very reliable either. :shifty:

    And no, I don't know shit about cars except how they look like. But I am a real Swede! And Volvos are very common here. And... yeah...

  5. again I stress: It's a SWEDISH car! This weather should be peanuts to it!


    Wtf is that? I've never seen a model like that, ever. Must be sold for the dutch market, exclusively. Mabye it's not adapted to our extremely fucking winter-y winters. :shifty:

  6. "Creative man gets funding to make more games." What a huge bummer!!!


    I don't get it, people are still getting upset that some people like to develop games for Xbox/2? What's so sad about this? Why does it matter if he makes a Rez game, or whatever, for Xbox instead of GC or PS2?

  7. I agree on Sam and Max as well. Didn't play for more than a few hours until I got bored, and I haven't touched it since. And that was back when I still liked to play adventure games (or video games, although I still enjoy that occasionally).

    Hmm, there's gotta be some more...

    But, Castlevania!? Damn, Symphony of the Night is perhaps the greatest game, ever. It's pretty damn close anyway.

  8. Halo's single-player mode is excellent, because it's an excellent game. But, it's nothing compared to the awesomeness that is the co-op mode (or the various modes of regular multiplayer, co-op being slightly more awesome) and that is how the game is meant to be played. So yeah, single player mode with a friend! :tup:

    The Return

    An impressive debut by director Andrey Zvyagintsev. A minimalistic, suspenseful family drama about two young brothers being reunited with their twelve-year estranged father.

    Very intense and evocative. Slow pace, perfect to savour the fucking gorgeous visuals. And the acting is amazing, I'm particulary impressed by the two youngsters.
