Sound Garden...



Just came across this... My first music fandom. Remembering my teenage days. It was that song that made me buy my first CD and "steal" the older Mariah Carey albums from my dad's CD shelf...

Really liked that one. I love the grumpy-old-man-turned-into-nice-guy-story...

Sound Garden....



The more I hear of Ellie Goulding, the more I love her and her music! This is definitely one of my favourites!

On the Big Screen...



I admit that I've always loved the so-called costume films - especially those with a real historical background. I also have to confess that I know very little about Danish history... I simply decided to watch this movie because the synopsis sounded interesting and, even more, because I love Mads Mikkelsen. Such a great actor. Never seen him in a romantic part before but he did an amazing job here, as usual. But the whole case here was simply brilliant and very convincing. Though it was a little hard to read subtitles throughout the whole film (I'd rather watch Danish OV then German subbed versions) I simply loved it. Being the cry-easy type of person (with movies only, strangely, not in real life!) I had to use a whole package of Kleenex near the end but it was so worth it...  Also, knowing both German and English, I got quite some of the Danish in the movie without reading the subtitles. Still sounds pretty funny to me (no offence to any Danish fellows!) but also a little familiar...
Highly recommend it to everyone. Not only a good history lesson but I recently learned that there are so many great European movies that never really made into the cinemas in Austria or overseas but so worth seeing them!
