K-pop. Since Psy took over the world with Gangnam Style everybody knows the genre once reserved to Asians and the odd Westerner. While the vast majority of the newly reached audience only enjoyed the biggest Youtube hit ever, some, including me, dove deeper into the wide world of Korean Pop and got hooked. This is my account of acquiring a new addiction.

Get acces to your Kubuntu samba server

Versus #4: Inception

Posted by Nick in Movies, Reviews on August 26th, 2010.

Nick: My expectations for this movie were pretty high. Not only because Christopher Nolan was involved, but also because his latest effort is ranked #3 on Imbd’s top 250. Especially during the summer when hardly any good movies come out, a Christopher Nolan movie should be a breath of fresh air. In Inception, Leonardo di […]
