>> Because The World Seems To Have Forgotten About Love - Here Is A Reminder: Love At First Sight πŸ’œ

Image
Hello dear readers and welcome back to this Blog! First of all, Happy New Year to you! πŸŽ‰ It has been a while since we have seen a new, good romantic movie. It has been a while since we have seen a good new movie in general. 😌 There seem to be few and far in between these days. So we were pleasantly surprised when we found 'Love At First Sight' on Netflix! This film is a refreshingly well made and insightful movie full of heart. We would say statistically 90% of people miss the opportunity of love at first sight, because they are constantly glued to their phones and hardly ever look up. If they do, they don't bother or care to start a conversation. But this is just an estimate. πŸ™‚ Considering life in a big and hectic city. Not so for Hadley and Oliver. Thankfully! Not only do they notice each other, they actually even start a conversation and show interest in one another! Almost unheard of these days, we know. This film is unexpected in many ways. From the ever so funny na

Wenn auch Du denkst dass der einzig richtige Weg,  aus der sich immer weiter zuspitzenden Lage in der Ukraine, GesprΓ€che und Verhandlungen statt immer weiterer Waffenlieferungen sind, kannst Du hier die Petition fΓΌr den Frieden unterschreiben. Außerdem findet am 25sten Februar um 14 Uhr eine Kundgebung vor dem Brandenburger Tor in Berlin statt . Desto mehr Teilnehmer sich dort einfinden, desto mehr wird der Gesuch nach Verhandlungen die zu Frieden fΓΌhren kΓΆnnen, gehΓΆrt. Solltest Du also gerade vor Ort sein und diese Einstellung teilen, kannst Du dich gern den anderen anschließen die ebenfalls durch Vernunft etwas bewirken wollen,  als die Krise durch weitere Waffenlieferungen immer weiter anzuheizen. Hier kannst Du weitere Informationen finden.

>> London Theatre: When Matthew Modine Entered The Stage I Was Like 'Papa!' And He Is Not Even My Father..

Image
Hello dear readers,  As I've previously mentioned, I like going to the theatre! The latest play I have seen, was 'To Kill A Mockingbird' - a new play by Aaron Sorkin - screenwriter of one of my 3 favourite movies of all time 'A Few Good Men'. Based on a novel by the American author Harper Lee. Matthew Modine was very engaging in the leading role of Atticus Finch. I mainly know him as Elevens (evil) 'PAPA' from 'Stranger Things'.  😊  You would think maybe it could be enough for him to be well known for that series but he really put in the effort, to make this stage role his own. Matthew Modine as Elevens Papa in 'Stranger Things' Convincing performance and once a again good ticket prices because of the app I recommended to you before - TodayTIX. Going to the theatre is an inspiring and often times uplifting experience. The theatre world is fascinating to me! I am always amazed by the talented actors I get to see live on stage. πŸ™‚ Production i

The Emperors New Clothes 2022 version You want critical political analysis? You want cutting-edge journalism?  Why did you come here then? Let me be the first one to say: I do not exactly understand how Crypto works. I know it is a digital currency that can be traded online. And I know that the cryptocurrency Bitcoin for example, is being created by mining which takes an extensive amount of energy/electricity (hello sustainability and saving the planet?) If you are looking for a definition online, you will find this: ' Bitcoin mining is  the process of creating new bitcoins by solving extremely complicated math problems that verify transactions in the currency . When a bitcoin is successfully mined, the miner receives a predetermined amount of bitcoin. ' Suggested business model of FTX/Alameda research via this video The only conclusion that one can draw from the FTX debacle caused by its CEO Sam Bankman-Fried is, that the majority of people do not get the concept of crypto eit

>> OMG!! 😱 I Was In A London Theatre Play 🎭 Witness For The Prosecution - And It Was Sooo Cool!!! 😊

Image
Jury member number 6 - before the show Hey everyone, In some unexpected News, I have the following update for you: I was in a real London theatre play: 'Witness For The Prosecution'. I made my London theatre debut!! 😊 It was sooo cool! How did it happen?  I bought a regular ticket for the balcony but when they scanned my code they told me I was going to get upgraded to be Jury Member number 6! To actually be part of the play!! 😱 I asked if the view is better than from the balcony - they said yes! A little bit about the back story. This play is based on the movie 'Witness For The Prosecution' starring German actress Marlene Dietrich. It is a classic in black and white from 1957. The movie is based on the book with the same title, written by Agatha Christie.  If you follow my blog regularly, you know by now, that I am drawn to the theatre world as well as law movies. So this night was a perfect combination and blend of both! ✨ The play is set in 'court' = County

>> Useful app - Today Tix: The Best London Musicals and Theatre Plays For A Good Price!

Hello dear readers! A great way to spend your weekend, when you live in a city like London, is seeing   a theatre play or musical! It is something a lot of tourists come here to do, so why not make use of this possibility if you actually live here. :)  I have known about this app TodayTIX since a few years,   but only now when a friend of mine reminded me of it, did I finally use it. I got to see Amy Adams (who was nominated for an Oscar 6 times already - who knew) in 'The Glass Menagerie'.   The next one, was 'The Mousetrap' a play in the style of the movie 'Knives Out.' You follow along and have to guess who did what and why. When almost everyone has a motive.  A murder mystery.. but the play is running for much longer, a total of 70 years. 'Longest running play in the world' it says. After that, the biggest production I have seen so far  'Beauty and the Beast'. So much singing and dancing with all of the original Disney songs of course! Remin
