Short Review Diary ‑ Books and other Reading

An incomplete timeline of what I read - mostly contributions to various forum threads. Read books and stories (audio formats) are included here. April 14 2021 We have talked about Hannu Rajaniemi before. Now I am pleased to announce that he published a post-Covid19-SciFi story (or a bunch of them af.....

Short Review Diary ‑ Music and other Audio

A timeline of what I listen to - mostly contributions to various forum threads Feb 12 2021 https://godtet.bandcamp.com/album/iii Very nice. Listenable, but with rough edges.

There's some truth in it - the lack of "features" helps to focus on what's relevant. Both looking at an.....

There And Back Again

Three Hour Hobbit re-edit This is not news anymore, it has been moved from my old site. This article talks about two different projects, both editing all three Hobbit films into a single one. I cannot find the first version anymore; the blog is gone. It's possible that the movie's torrent is still .....
