Winter is coming !

Ah, hold me *shaking and crying* *ugly sobbing* ,it's Monday, I can finally watch Game of Thrones Season 2 Episode 1 , HELL TO THE YEAH !
I survived the cruel hiatus, I deserve a medal for bravery and patience !

Sadly, now I have to survive the The Walking Dead hiatus because such is the world, cruel and with breaks between seasons of great tv shows !

Also, I do not give a shit about House ending, not one bit, totally indifferent to it, I've grown ,but more about that in another post, if I ever feel like making one cause LJ is sort of meh lately, Tumblr is my shit, there I can talk about history and post pics and be silly, I highly recommend it!


Quick update and a confession : I am a tad obsessed with making GIFs

Howdy y'all ! My life is quite uneventful, I don't do much, mainly I just have some Master's classes (now there's a break, exams are over) and some German classes .
Yes, I started re-learning German, did 4 years of it in middle school but abandoned it cause I hated the teacher and it made me hate not the language but the grammar, and now I thought it would be a good idea to start again since I seem to be going there on shorter or longer trips quite often and I have more contact in general with the language so it's easier to learn and remember what I once knew. I like it so far, the classes are twice a week at a German institute and the teacher we have is very nice ,the method of teaching is fun and modern and ....active instead of the countless theories and grammar we did in school.
Other than that....well I guess nothing exciting is going on, I am sure it's not exciting to hear about my random outings with one friend or the other at Starbucks, the Mall, movies or random pubs haha.

The gif situation now lol ! I think I will turn this love of gifs into a theme, I'll make gif posts, more organized than this one, themed. If you have suggestions of things you want to see, please share them with me. I can make gifs(not terribly complicated ones because I don't like wasting hours to change all sorts of things and settings and make them look unreal) of history related stuff (I have tons of WWII related documentaries) , tv shows like Fringe, Supernatural, Alcatraz, The Walking Dead, Grimm, Survivor, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family ,Game of Thrones, Dr Who.

Peace !


My trip to Salzburg ,pictures and tv shows aka Alcatraz...finally on air !

   Yay, I just watched the first episode of Alcatraz, the new J.J Abrams drama/thriller tv show with Sam Neill and Jorge Garcia(Hurley from LOST) and I like it ! The story is interesting, there's mystery and action and I love Sam Neill like whoa. I used to be obsessed with Jurassic Park back when I was little, had it on tape and watched it at least once a week ,I had a slight crush on Sam Neill then and he's a class act, always liked him, I'm so happy he's on tv now omg !!!
     So ,yeah other than that ..... I just came back from Salzburg, Austria. I went there last week with a friend of mine and it was lots of fun although it was my 4th or 5th time in Salzburg in the past few years (last time I was there was 6 months ago when I went there for a day from Berchtesgaden cause it was raining like Hell).

Music time ! Some of my favorite Soundtracks

   Been a while since I wrote an update but these days most comments I get are from spam bots so it's no biggie haha . Life's uneventful and boring and I'm sure you don't want to hear about my WWII related acquisitions but today I got to listening some tunes and I remembered I like soundtracks or soundtrack-like music .

  So, here you have some of my favorite tracks.  They are in no particular order except for the first one ,my most favorite.

Requiem for a Dream - Lux Aeterna (the video is of Requiem for a Tower, a more powerful version made by the same author)

I'm back from Egypt + today is a sad day !

   I just came back from Egypt 2 days ago and it was a great trip ,12 days at the seaside in Marsa Alam by the Red Sea and 2 days in Cairo right next to Tahrir Square for you world news buffs. I will make a post about that after I finish uploading my pictures ,which is taking a while due to my Internet connection that behaves like a pubescent girl.

A real story that I found very touching !

 I've actually been trying to come up with some catchy title that would make you, my followers, curious enough to not skip this post about a little story, a true story that has absolutely moved me . I know that very few people share my interest in historical stuff and so I tought long and hard before making this post but decided I have to, I have to share it and hopefully this post will succeed in making at least one more person in this world know about this.

So what I'm going to talk about is real, I read about it from various sources including one of the "parties" involved .

Game of Thrones, what are you doing to my feelings?!


    I'm about to watch the last episode of Game of Thrones ,somebody hold me ! Just finished watching episode 9 a few minutes ago and oh shit ,son , WTF is this fuckery ,they better not have killed Stark , I don't even want to know!!!!! I have not read any of the books, I don't want to spoil myself in detail so I have no idea how this thing is going to continue come next season , if there will be a new cast or something (I hope not omg, please no) but AHHHHHHHHH not Stark, Sean Bean is awesome ! Also how fierce is Arya? She's so fierce, I hope she grows up to be a warrior and shit !
   They also better not kill that hot ass bitch Jorah ,he's FINE !!! 
   That little whiny bitch Geoffrey (or whatever the spelling is) better get bitchslapped hard with a fucking sword between his eyes sooner rather than later !!! Those Lannisters, all bitches except for that Imp, he's charismatic and funny.
   Also, I want that goddamn winter to come already and those Whitewalkers or whatever ...
   Now off to watch the last episode and proceed to cut a bitch (cause how am I supposed to handle waiting until next year for more episodes?).

TV shows and summer boredom or from Misfits to Falling Skies, Game of Thrones and nothingness

     The big bad hiatus is in full swing so there's little for me to watch on tv (aka my PC of course) and the situation is getting desperate ! I saved a few shows for the summer months but I am almost done with them already.
     I started  watching Misfits and finished it all in less than one week, only 13 episodes is not much , not much at all and now I am waiting to see what powers they all got but I don't even know when the new season begins. It's a great show, the dialogue and characters are the most interesting part, they carry the whole thing not the plot or the sets which are not that spectacular or anything. But yes, I love the humor and the characters. My favorite is Simon, he's so awkward but with so much potential underneath that, it's interesting. Nathan is hilarious and adorable but I don't fancy the actor like everyone else seems to . I mean, he's pretty but he's too young for my tastes haha.
     Another show I'm watching is Falling Skies aka that shit alien show on TNT that I don't find quite as shitty as others seem to find it. It's not really bad ,just a little slow and boring but the boring part has to do with the all american cliches ,it's a walking, talking cliche, all of them are there complete with stupid "epic" speeches. But other than that it's ok, I like the idea of it and I hear it's getting a second season so maybe it won't end abruptly .
     Yesterday I started watching Game of Thrones which I've been meaning to watch ever since I heard about it but I waited for the season to end first . It's pretty interesting, I was expecting a bit more action and fantasy but the story is good and the actors are good . So far I'm at the 3rd episode and the one disappointment is that Iain Glen's character doesn't have more scenes and that I cannot root for Lena Headey's character cause she seems like a total bitch but I love the actress .
    Other than that .... I've watched all season of The Big Bang Theory back in June and my only remaining back-up is Mike&Molly + about 10 more episodes of Modern Family season 2 because I saved that one as well. Oh, the horror....what will I do?

    Also, I watched dozens of documentaries and just payed 40 dollars on one about Hitler's Wolf's Lair (one of his General Headquarters during WWII, it's in the north of Poland) in the hope that there will also be more footage of Alfred Jodl and there better be more footage but I'm sure I'll be disappointed on that front, the guy seemed to be everywhere but where the cameras were.


The story of my trip to Germany, enhanced with many pretty pictures

    Dear God in Heaven ,I've been working on this post for 3 days ,thanks to our friendly neighborhood hackers , took me about 4 hours in total cause I had to rewrite most of it 3 times !
   Anyway, where were we? Oh yes,  I'm back from my 2 week trip to Germany ! I'm sad about that cause I really wish I could stay there for ever but what can you do ,gotta' come back to my cave at some point.
   So, in case you're interested in what I've been up to in Germany ,here's a short summary before the pretty pictures .

   I visited Nuremberg, Heidelberg, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Garmisch Partenkirchen, Berchtesgaden and Munchen + a day trip to Innsbruck cause it was raining like crazy in Garmisch that day.
