Bad Neighbours

Bad Neighbours by Nicholas Stoller
On Sunday night I watched Bad Neighbours. It was raining outside, I enjoy the works of Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, and I craved some laughs. I was pretty confident that this Universal Studios comedy would do just the trick. Especially with director Nicholas Stoller at the helm. You might remember him from such films as Get Him To The Greek (2010) and Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008).

2014 Offseason winners: Cleveland Cavaliers

It's that time of the year again. Fresh talent has entered the league via the Draft. Free agents have found new landing spots. Other players were traded. Some teams got better, others got worse to get better in the long run. The NBA landscape has changed a lot in 12 months. Just like I did last year and the year before, I will select seven teams that I believe will take steps forward from last season, be it marginal or not. Sometimes my selections are slam dunks, other times not so much.

My 2014 Offseason Winners are:

"Kids don't do what they're told, they do what they see"

A Life of Bright Ideas review
Hippie, but tasty
Shame on me. I had A Life Of Bright Ideas (2012) by Sandra Kring lying around since Christmas (thanks again, Mom!), but with so many books to go through and so little time to do it in, I had it on the back burner. When I was packing for Turkey, though, I thought "Hm... this might be perfect pool reading!"

"A man loses lots of habits in time"

Butcher's Crossing review
Buffalos before hoes
A favorable review in Humo. A 3-for-the-price-of-2 deal at the book store. That's all it took for Butcher's Crossing (1960) to get into my bookcase.

Eminem to release a new album on Black Friday

Shady XV on Black Friday
15 years and counting
He just wrapped up his six-date Monster Tour with Rihanna. His eighth studio album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 was released less than a year ago.

Guardians of the Galaxy

We are Groot!
I had heard tons of great things about Guardians of the Galaxy - the latest from Marvel - from my brolleague/Dan Bilzerian lookalike Mattias and bromosexual life partner Tom, so I decided to check it out on Sunday. Hardly knowing what to exactly expect, other than their raving recommendations and the trailer I saw a while ago, I ended up having a great time. Lend me your attention, idiots, as I tell you why you should definitely go see this awesome movie.
