The Pirates! Band of Misfits

Standard

Saw it today, it was awesome.

  • It’s stop motion animation with puppets, from Aardman Animations (the people behind Wallace & Gromit), which is refreshing to see amongst all the 3D animated movies that are many nowadays.
  • The attention to detail in the background is amazing, you’d have to watch the movie many many times to notice every little detail.
  • The story is quite original, it doesn’t include any clichés at all.
  • I think Pirate Captain and Pirate with scarf should get together.
  • There’s a woman dressed as a man in the crew, but there’s no big deal about it through the whole movie. That. Is brilliant.

So yeah, watch this movie. It’s a wonderful experience, I can’t wait to get the DVD. Don’t watch it in 3D, ’cause 3D is stupid and adds nothing to this movie. Thankfully I didn’t watch it in 3D.

So far the movie has only been shown in European countries (+Colombia). The US has to wait until the end of April. It’s like The Adventures of Tintin all over again.

Improv cooking

Standard

It’s nearing Easter break (I’m going home on Saturday), and I want to minimize the money I put on food, so that I can afford to buy new clothes next week. So I made lunch with stuff that I already had laying around.

This time it was; rice+minced meat+peas+garlic+chilipowder+salt+pepper+oregano+teriyaki sauce.

The result was quite good, maybe a bit too spicy but I have cottage cheese to accompany it.

Tomorrow I’ll make pancakes. :3

Cough or cold?

Standard

My throat is not good at all at the moment. It’s to early to say if it’s an annoying cough or the first phase of a cold.

So, I’ve bunkered stuff that’s good for my throat, like ice-cream and Läkerol.

The weekend will be spent on trying to get better, via isolating myself to my room as much as I can. Also, laundry.

 

Chicken fajitas, they burn

Standard

I just ate chicken fajitas for the first time.

It has a burning after taste which surfaces very fast. I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I’m not a big lover of spicy food.

Yesterday I ate pasta with four cheese sauce with ham, broccoli and cherry tomatoes. It was delicious I must say.

Both of these were frozen dinner, by the way. There was another 5 for 4 offer at the store with the self-checkout.
