Yes. We’re leaving snow-fogged rain for sunny BCN, brilliant architecture, art and Spanish cuisine! You say Winter is coming? We say: Bring it on, let us just pack our bags first! We dropped off the dog at C’s mum’s an hour ago, now we’re going to have a pizza, watch some TV, finish packing and […]
Today I usually have a planned or improvised April Fools joke on Sigg3.net, but not this year. Friday I handed in the first 20% of my MA thesis and also accidentally discovered that we were scheduled for having our windows replaced today. They decided this was the time to do it because of some change […]
I just learned that a new Terry Gilliams movie is about to launch, the 14th of March, called The Zero Theorem. I don’t know about you, but I still think every Gilliams movie is more of an event than “just” a movie. Looking forward to this new take on the Meaning of Life :D

I think this photo captures the spirit of Christmas with some accuracy: Quite a bother and sort of involuntary, but nevertheless a little funny.
It’s the little guy’s birthday today! Typing on a cell so this will be short and sweet; Happy Birthday, Elvis! It’s hard to understand that we have had our Boston Terrier for two years. When I think of earlier days, it’s like he’s there with us. He’s an annoying, little bastard; but just the same, […]
It’s been a while since I did this, so here are the last five flicks I saw. World War Z (2013) This. This is what we’ve been waiting for. Not a zombie movie. But THIS zombie movie. The albeit cheesy title made me think that this was just another fundraiser for some Jewish wedding in […]
