I was so happy I went to this event! You were the people in the nurse outfits, running around like crazy everywhere and the rave party with the monster mash was super cool! I wish they would do it again next year! Or maybe 28 weeks later🙂
Well, I think I’m pulling movie nights this week in a desperate attempt to feel like I’m paying for something (ie my Cineworld unlimited subscription). Seen Storks the day before yesterday and seen “The Girl on the Train” yesterday night. Based on the book with the same name which I haven’t read so far due to the hype (we all know about the Fifty Shades of Grey Hype – just because people are talking about it, it does not mean it’s any good). The movie blew my mind!
I haven’t seen Emily Blunt perform so well ever since The Edge of Tomorrow and I really hope she gets nominated or something (the Oscars are shitty but I hope she gets a Globe)
I saw the new “Storks” last night and I must say, the animator that did the water and the ice and all the rain scenes must get a raise! It looked so real! And technically, all the emotions portrayed in the movie were genuine and I kinda cried in parts!
Traditionally, storks have been associated with baby deliveries but in order to increase profits and avoid embarrassing errors, storks are now a goods delivery company.
When a little boy makes a wish for a baby brother who is a ninja so he will have someone to play with in his parent’s absence (they were working all the time), his letter gets delivered to Tulip from the storks company and she puts it in the wrong bin, making a baby appear!
Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is now in hot water when this baby appears as it would mean trouble for his promised promotion. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race against time to make their first baby drop before the boss finds out.
The pigeon ass who gets them found out reminded me so much of the disabled South Park kid called Nathan!
I was laughing away at this point! The cute part is, the wolves, they transform into these man-made structures like a bridge, a submarine (that breathes collectively) and a car(!) equipped with seat-belts. The only thing that failed was an airplane as the only wolf spinning his tail as a propella could not keep everyone afloat.
The emotional bits
Well, I cried in most parts (I must be nuts) – when the little kid wanted attention from his ma & pa and uses well known quotes to get their attention (“he was just a baby a blink ago”), when the kid had to dismantle what him and his parents built for the stork, the orphan Tulip re-union with her lost ginger family (all sporting the same hair).
I even cried when they put the baby machine in overdrive and responded to millions of letters asking for a baby, which then made the storks throw away their business suits and return to roots.
I even loved it when Junior (the stork) decides what to do as the new boss of the company and abandons that toothy laugh that made his boss look like a tit more than a stork (google it, a tit is a bird).
Hunter: Junior, you know why I built my office entirely out of glass even though birds can’t see glass?
Junior: I do not.
[birds fly smack into the glass]
Hunter: Power move!
Ages ago, I watched 12 Kingdoms and I found myself thinking about it almost on a daily basis – well, ever since the presidential debate for the US chair turned to groping and tantrums. So I asked myself, “What makes a good ruler?”
So I set this weekend aside to answer just this question. I binge-watched the 45 episodes (even the fillers) and I think my curiosity has been satisfied – to a point. Continue reading

After the Übermodel Gisele Bündchen recommended on her official website, that people should pee in the shower to save water, different discussions of whether it’s right or indeed ecological sprung up.
On the internet, it surpassed the topics and turned community on social networking sites. Blogs and social networks, the campaign has received thousands of comments. Controversy aside, the beautiful statement of the resumed discussion on the water we sent away as soon as the switch-on of the flush valve.
Last year, the SOS Atlantic Forest began a campaign on the subject. The NGO estimated that each pees five times a day on average and the flushes add up to 12 liters. Fabiano da Veiga product engineer recalls that discharges manufactured after 2002 must meet the Brazilian legislation determines an expense of 6.8 liters of water.
