I am always looking forward to reaching new milestones with my daughter: first steps, first few words, first plane trip,… Hayao Miyazaki is another one of those milestones.
This is why I love mountain biking. I love the sounds, the scenery, the thrill, … Enjoy!
I can’t seem to stop posting about Marvel movies and shows lately :) ABC has so far been successful with its two tie-ins to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. and Marvel’s Agent Carter. It’s only natural for them to keep at it, this time with more superheroes!
I’m a Marvel fan. I read Strange as a kid, I’ve watched all the MCU movies, the Marvel shows on ABC (Agent Carter, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and all the Marvel shows on Netflix. Even before Iron Fist’s release date was announced, I knew I’d be watching it as soon as it came out.
It’s been out for a few months now; I think spoilers are fine now so it’s time for a quick review! If you haven’t watched it yet be warned: spoilers ahead!
6 years today. ❤️ We celebrated with a nice family brunch and obviously we had to watch our wedding videos once again! 😊
The Celtic Social Club releases a new album today, A New Kind OF Freedom! If you like Celtic music or just want to discover a mix of traditional Breton, Irish, Scottish, Cornish, and Welsh songs, often with a twist of Rock, Blues, or even Reggae, you’ll want to listen to their new album! It’s available on iTunes, Spotify, and Apple Music.
Here is a live concert to give you a little intro. Enjoy!
The Good Wife was one of my favourite TV shows. I liked the characters, the “case of the week”, the backstory, the little touches of humour here and there. When CBS announced that they were launching a spinoff, I was obviously very curious. As it turns out, they did a pretty good job with The Good Fight.
There is time-lapse… And there is time-lapse.
This 3-minute introduction of New York (Manhattan, really) is just impressive. The visuals, the sounds, the transitions, … Can you make a better promo video for any city?
I’ve used image sharing software for the past 5 years: CloudApp, Cloudup, Droplr, I tried them all. Those apps are great to quickly share screenshots, annotated images, gifs, or even screencasts with users. Sometimes, an image is worth a thousand words. :)
When I switched to Linux for my February challenge, I set out to find a cross-platform alternative to all those services. Here is what I came up with.
I don’t know much about anime, but I’ve always really enjoyed Hayao Miyazaki’s films. Nausicaä, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, are all films I want to show my daughter when she grows up. I like Miyazaki’s takes on the interactions between humans and nature, and his style in general.
So of course, when I discovered this mixtape with samples from all those movies, I jumped on it!
