  • The Spice Must Flow…

    Do you love Dune? I do. It’s one of my favorite books of all time. And the movie? David Lynch’s take on the story is the best we’ll have until someone comes along and shoots another Dune movie. Still, there are guys like this one that go beyond everything and make a cut from all the released […]

  • RIP Satoru Iwata

      Rest in peace Mr. Iwata. Many thanks for all your ideas and work at Nintendo.

  • On PewDiePie’s $7m…

    The problem here isn’t the money this young man is making with his videos… the problem is that there are 37 million souls watching him playing games instead of spending that time playing games themselves, which to me makes no sense at all.

    Setting the mood for the upcoming week…

  • Late 2014 Resolution

    Learn to code decently in a specific language, once and for all.

    Perhaps the oldest question in the history of civilization… it’s the also the one question with the most number of answers. Their validity is another issue… I often say that life, and all its aspects are terribly subjective. Even death. It all depends on how you experience life itself and the end of it, either […]
