Now

Last Updated: 2021-12-21

Seems like this year we are headed for the holidays break just the four of us. Probably for the best given the numbers both in Germany and in Poland. Still, it would be great to spend some time with grandparents, unlces and aunts. Well, it is what it is now with this pandemic outbreak, so we’ll just try to make the most of it. Probably somewhere in January some family visits will kick in. Have some cool holidays and a happy New Year! 🎉

Reading: “Gardens of the Moon” — Steven Erikson

I somehow couldn’t go through the latest Sanderson Stormlight Archive book and needed some time off. I did however want to read some fantasy, so I reached out to the book I once tried to read… very long time ago. I kept in mind though and gave “Gardens of the Moon” a one more try – it’s an awesome treat and I think I have a new great series ahead of me. Highly recommended to any dark fantasy fans out there.

Playing: Shadow of Tomb Raider

My wife was playing almost all of the Tomb Raider series games. I got hooked up with the reboot and the Tomb Raider 2013 reboot. I really enjoyed playing it and now is the time for me to get back to the series and give the sequel a go. Graphics and flow style it’s very similar. The story is, as usual, captivating and rich. I’m around 10 hours in thus far and loving it!

Watching: The Beatles: Get Back

I had high hopes for this one and boy did Peter Jackson deliver. I binge-watched all episodes and they left me in awe. There’s so many little details that were done right that it’s hard to even begin with describing it. Don’t want to spoil too much with my favorite scenes, but one of them is definitely origins of the “Get Back” song. Amazing to see it being born pretty much in front of your eyes and in quality that it looks it has been recorded yesterday. One thing is certain – it’s an absolute must watch for any Beatles fan.

Listening: Nirvana: Nevermind (30th Anniversary Edition)

These are more of the things I’m really looking forward to and that should arrive this month. First one is the 30th Anniversary Edition of Nirvana’s Nevermind and I can’t wait. Even for Live Paradiso in Blu-Ray quality alone it’s worth it and there are many more awesome things coming. Nirvana live is the best Nirvana and here we are getting four complete concerts in, I can only assume, amazing quality. If that wasn’t enough, I also pre-ordered Oasis Kenbworth 1996 with documentary and both nights in full, Blu-Ray quality – can’t wait to see this legendary live performance in such an awesome quality!
