AMC’s “The Walking Dead”

I know, I'm late to the game with only posting this now, but with "The Walking Dead" being late has kind of been my thing. I started watching the show when it was already in its fourth season, and by the way, the show was the very reason why I got Netflix "only for the … Continue reading AMC’s “The Walking Dead”

“Menschen Leben Tanzen Welt” von Jim Pandzko feat. Jan Böhmermann im Neo Magazin Royale

Dass Jan Böhmermann eine hohe Affinität für Musik hat und sich auch selbst gut auf der Bühne macht, hat er im Neo Magazin Royale schon oft genug bewiesen. Allein mit den musikalischen Gästen in letzter Zeit (Father John Misty, Bilderbuch, Get Well Soon & Kat Frankie um nur einige zu nennen) oder der Wahl seiner … Continue reading “Menschen Leben Tanzen Welt” von Jim Pandzko feat. Jan Böhmermann im Neo Magazin Royale

T.C. Boyle’s “The Terranauts”

I said it before, and I'll say it again: Fantasy is my thing, young adult fiction is my thing, science fiction is my thing, basically everything that has wizards or dragons or vampires or young people with anxiety problems or space ships or all of the above in it is my thing. Historic fiction? Thrillers? … Continue reading T.C. Boyle’s “The Terranauts”

“I See You” by The xx

British indie band The xx seem to have been everybody's favourite since the release of their first album, selling millions of records and playing the biggest venues on the planet. With the release of their third album they once again managed to receive widespread critical acclaim and debut at Number 1 in the UK, making it … Continue reading “I See You” by The xx

“Beauty And The Beast”

Ever since Disney announced they were making a live action adaptation of their 1991 classic "Beauty And The Beast" I was excited beyond measure, as the original was one of my absolute favorites as a child. And the good news kept on coming. Writers? Evan Spiliotopoulos (you might know him from writing the script to … Continue reading “Beauty And The Beast”

“Love” by Lana Del Rey

I should probably preface this by saying that I wouldn't really consider myself a die hard (or at all) Lana Del Rey-fan. I bougth her record "Born To Die", had it on repeat for a while and quite liked it, then listened to her record "Ultraviolence" on Spotify when it came out, and that was … Continue reading “Love” by Lana Del Rey

“Glück gehabt” von Die Schwarzwälder Kirschtorten (aka. K.I.Z.)

K.I.Z. kennen und lieben wir eigentlich für ihren gesellschaftskritischen Deutsch-Rap, doch jetzt hat sich das Vierergespann wohl eine neue Aufgabe gestellt: Schlager wieder salonfähig machen. Dass das Genre, das für blendend-weißes Zahnpasta-Lächeln, idyllische Landschaften und eine atemlose Helene Fischer bekannt ist jedoch mehr kann, zeigt das Vierergespann als Die Schwarzwälder Kirschtorten mit ihrem neuen Song "Glück … Continue reading “Glück gehabt” von Die Schwarzwälder Kirschtorten (aka. K.I.Z.)

“Love Hotel” by Yung Hurn

Egal wohin das Auge (oder vielmehr das Ohr) schweift, in letzter Zeit ist alles politisch, ganz vorne mit dabei natürlich die Musik. Ob man nun amerikanischen Indie-Folk, Hip-Hop, Deutsch-Rap oder Popmusik hört, jeder von Haftbefehl bis zu Katy Perry hat was zu sagen und jeder positioniert sich ganz klar zur aktuellen politischen Lage. Ganz anders … Continue reading “Love Hotel” by Yung Hurn

“Stranger Things” on Netflix

Last summer Netflix graced us with a new and exciting series nobody could stop gushing about. Everybody was hyping "Stranger Things", so naturally I didn't want to watch it. But having to write term papers and having other stuff to do I desperately needed some means of procrastination, so the "I'm not gonna watch this … Continue reading “Stranger Things” on Netflix

Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events”

Friday the thirteenth might be considered an unfortunate day, but fortunately for us, we can spend it watching Netflix's new show, none other than "A Series of Unfortunate Events". I had heard about the book series by Lemony Snicket countless of times, but never really got around to reading it. However, following the announcement that … Continue reading Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events”
