An internet internet radio

When I was younger I spent many many hours listening to the BBC World service and Absolute radio. The problem was that it was very difficult to tune in stations due to the distance. 

Now almost all the content is broadcast on the internet which makes it easier to listen to stations from all over the world. 

Using a regular receiver is becoming very impractical, so I got an internet radio that uses wifi to connect to the world. It is absolutely fantastic. My life has changed a little bit to the better.

I bought it through the internet, that is why I call it an internet internet radio.

And to think that the movie starts with Mulan chasing a hen... and ends up with the Phoenix backing her up is so super

Caterpillar

I had never seen a caterpillar so big in my life. It is huge. I found it on an olive tree this morning. This afternoon I checked whether it was stiil there and I found a second one. 

I cannot help wondering whether they are male and female. If it is true, I might end up having hundreds of them. I hope they don't eat tomatoes. Or they will ruin my harvest ;)

Screenshot of the week 13

Last night I finished watching one of the tv shows I enjoyed the most in my life. That is Terminator. The Sarah Connor Chronicles  The plot is great, the script is awesome and the actors are extraordinary.

I laughed so much with this one dialog between John and Derek (copied from wikiquote):

Derek Reese: Remind me again, why are the boys out here and the girls in there?
John Connor: Because one of the boys is still wanted for murder, and one of the girls is harder than nuclear nails...
Derek Reese: And the other one's a cyborg.


I know it was first aired a long time ago but I didn't have the chance to watch it until recently. Every afternoon I arrived home waiting to watch the next chapter.

I am a huge fan of the film franchise and I must admit that it helped me understand the events in the series much better. And guess what, the series finale is just awesome. I wasn't expecting anything like that, but it is a fantastic ending.

I took a great screenshot with smplayer (by pressing "s") of the final part of chapter 2x19 (there are 22 chapters in the second season) in which you can see the three main characters in a row. WOW what a great picture: Sarah Connor, John Connor and Cameron. I hope you like it.


And remember: "Come with me if you want to live" :)

Rita

Today I adopted a stray dog. Her name is Rita. It is a pun on "perrita" (little she dog)
