Current Music: "It's our fight" from the TRANSFORMERS 3 score by S. Jablonsky
I just returned from a "Transformers" triple feature at the theatre...and damn, I LOVE these movies! I grew up watching the animated show on TV and adored it...and I thank Michael Bay for having given me three amazing movies about this part of my childhood *gg* Though it was not very nice of the scriptwriters to kill off one of my fav Autobots and the only Decepticon I ever liked *mutters*

Anyway, I've been re-obsessing over Transformers for over a week now...and found this little list here over at fanfiction.net *chuckles* What can I say? I could tick over 40 'facts' of it as in 'yep, that's me...' (or was...way back then) ^^ Anyone else obsessing over the movies again?

You know you're obsessed with the transformers when:
By CaMaRoFaN14 (fanfiction.net)

1. You nickname yourself after your favorite mech and or femme.
2. You think that Darth Vader is a pussy and megatron is the true lord of the sith.
3. You squeal uncontrollably when you see any of the cars from transformers; no matter what generation.
4. You cuss as badly as ratchet, or ironhide, the Chevy twins, or the Lamborghini twins.
5. You have perfected your evil sunstreaker or megatron laugh.
6. When you leave home you shout "ROLL OUT!" Or "DECEPTICONS MOBILIZE!"
7. You hear any song on the radio and you immediately think of a transformer.
8. Whenever you hear an explosion you immediately run outside screaming "Wheeljack!"
9. You tell your physics teacher that he/she is full of it and that the transformers have proven it is possible to travel faster than the speed of light.
10. You look at Barney and think about armada megatron quickly followed by the thought "megatron I have lost what little respect I had for you."
11. While all the other children obsessed over their yu-gi-oh and Pokémon you were still obsessing over the newest transformers toy.
12. You're a girl and when you mother gave you a Barbie you immediately set it on fire and demanded a transformer instead.
13. You cried when starscream died in armada.
14. You give every yellow Lamborghini a very large berth.
15. You have an irrational fear of black and white Saleen mustangs
16. You think that the police motto 'To Punish and Enslave.' Is more fitting than 'To Protect and Serve.'
17. You start school wide allegiances and stage a full scale battle over control over the school lunch rotunda.
18. You're a boy and you thought that G.I Joe could go die in a hole and that transformers was so much cooler.
19. You would gladly kill anyone who told you that harry potter was better than transformers.
20. Your friends often call you as vain as tracks or worse Sunstreaker

140 more proofs...Collapse )

*laughs* 'Obsessing/ fantasizing' is good for the soul sometimes, isn't it?

I wish you all a great weekend...and thank you cat_o_wen for the yummy virtual choccy treat! One can never have enough choccy, eh? *winks*

Yes, it was concert time for me again...and since the disaster with the last one, I had lowered my expectations for this one immensely *laughs* Originally, I was really really looking forward to finally see UNHEILIG live and all looked good at first, but then there's the wee problem of unpredictable weather *sigh*

UNHEILIG are a German band around lead singer "Der Graf" (he keeps his real name and his whole private life a secret and it's a really well kept one) and after years of being a big name in the 'dark/ gothic scene', they have become a little bit more 'mainstream' in the past year and suddenly have a huge success. The last LP as well as the song "Geboren um zu leben" were the most successful ones in all of Germany in 2010. *grins*

So yeah, Mo and I drove over to Gelsenkirchen but the closer we got to the city, the worse our mood got because we ended up in a major thunderstorm with heavy rain and hail. Not funny! So once we were on the parking lot of the amphitheatre the concert was going to take place in, we (as well as everyone else) remained in the car - for almost 2 hours *smirk* Lovely, huh? Eventually, the thunderstorm faded and the people carefully dared to leave the cars - so did we. Then we learned that there would be THREE support acts before UNHEILIG would enter the stage. THREE support acts! Seriously now...when did that happen? There once was a time with one support act that played for 20 minutes or so...then the main act played for 2 hours. Nowadays, two or more support acts play for 2 to 3 hours and the main act for 60 minutes. WTF??? *sigh* And in this case, the support acts were not even good ones! And yes, our mood did not get any better because of this...on the contrary, it got worse because the rain got worse again as well. *mutters*

Neither of us can afford to fall sick right now...and in the end, we only watched UNHEILIG performing 4 songs and then left - all soaked with rain, freezing and quite disappointed. Damn weather!

Maybe one day, I'll get to see UNHEILIG again - in another location...with a roof! After all, they are amazing live and he sounds just as special on stage as he does on a recorded CD!

Lesson of the day: I'm not made for open air concerts *lol* Especially not when it's raining!

...watching football (soccer) is so not good for my fan-nerves *laughs* Tonight, a game of the qualification rounds for next year's European Championship was on the schedule and statistically, it should have been a walk in the park for our boys...but on the field, it was not and the result admittedly was very lucky *smirks* Our game was not good and not pretty to watch but we won, which is all that counts in the end...hehe...

Austria vs. Germany - 1 : 2

THANK YOU, Mario Gomez! *laughs* 6th victory in the 6th game... :) Sorry Austria, but it seems we're not going to see you attending the EC in 2012 but you did very well tonight!

P.S.: And since I still have a soft spot for Italy...YAY! for winning so clearly against Estonia. You guys needed a good result for sure ^^

Have a great weekend, everyone! *hugs flist*

No more nuclear power or nuclear power plants in Germany as of 2022.

The government has made this decision last night and the law for it is on its way. How awesome is that? We have 17 nuclear powerplants, 7 of them are already down and will not be re-started. Another 7 will be shut down in a few years and the last three in 2022. Until then our wind power plants will be extended as will the sunpower plants. YAY!

All German car manufacturers have electric cars in the making...though it'll take some more years for them to actually be affordable for everyone *laughs* And even though I'll certainly miss the sexy engine sounds one day...I won't really mind driving one of these at some point:




On a far less cooler note: we're still have major issues regarding the EHEC epidemic *sigh* Over 1.000 people are sick, a lot of them suffering from the life threatening version of the virus. About a dozen people already died. And they still have no idea how to stop the virus from spreading further. There is an official government 'warning' to not eat vegetables for now, especially no tomatoes, cucumbers or green salad. :( I miss my salads! I just hope they'll find the origin of the virus SOON! Because the epidemic apparently is beginning to spread over Europe now since there are reported cases of EHEC in the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Belgium :-/

Anyway, I'm off for a spontaneous BBQ *lol* It's warm and sunny and very lovely outside, thus the family decided to have BBQ in the garden. YUMMY!
Wish you all a relaxed week! *hugs flist*

Day 29: A song from your childhood

Yes, I skipped day 28 because I just cannot come up with a song that makes me feel guilty *laughs* Probably a good sign ^^. Anyway, this song soooo is my early childhood and had me dance about the living-room babbling along at 4 years old *g* Not that I had any idea what I was 'singing'...

...very fond memories *g*

...wow, wow, wow! I just returned from seeing "Fast Five" and damn...that was one hell of ride - in the most positive way. The 5th installment of the "Fast and Furious" franchise is definitely the one with the most action, the highest number of destroyed cars and the most testosterone *g* The action is breathtaking, the story is good, the pace very high, the cast awesome and the score by Brian Tyler fantastic. "Fast Five" is fun, fun, fun...and one of the best action movies of the past years. Vin Diesel vs. Dwayne Johnson is an overdose of coolness, muscle and testosterone and was great to watch. The only little things to criticize from my point of view are: I missed the emphasis of the story on the cars as it used to be in the other movies (they had a couple of hot ones in "Fast Five" but they were merely tools. Pity.), the 'romance' between Dom and Elena was a bit hasty imho and Mia's pregnancy somewhat unnecessary but I guess they had to give her some sort of mini-extra plot to give her something to do. Anyway, none of these could really spoil the movie and I'm already looking forward to #6... ^^ The boys are back and they're better than ever...

*insert HUGE happy fangirl grin here*

Well...on to the 30 Day Song Challenge - Day 25 ^^
Day 25: A song that makes you laugh

What can I say? It's a song from the "Fast Five" soundtrack and it DOES make me laugh, dance, smile...and generally gets me into a good mood. Should have seen my and my company partying in the car after the movie...to this song of course *laughs*
