Oxford Street

Hello World,

on the third and second wholde day in London my friend and I went to Oxford Street for a whole fucking day. I can’t even believe it now that we spent one day there, strolling through shops like Topshop, Primark, Tiger (amazing!), and much more. On that day there was the Tube strike and so we had to take the red buses, did you believe there were so many when you first went to London, I didn’t.

Enjoy the photos and comment your favorite city, if you like.

Herzlichst, Taykure.

Hello World,

this is the second Day of my Trip to London, where we ate our first ever fish n’ chips, visited the Natural History Museum and had a massive stroll though an english independent bookshop and through Chinatown. I don’t want to tire you with my words, just enjoy the photos.

The London Eye

Hello World,

this is it, the first day of the best adventure I’ve had so far. My London Photo Diary contain all the places my friend and I went to and also some little bits that I liked. I tell you, you have to go there in your life, it is amazing. We had luck with the weather as I can count off the times it rained by one hand (if it rained, only for approximately 1 hour) and we made the most off our days. From flying alone (like that) for the first time, so trying to get euros into pounds, searching for the right trains and buses to sleeping at a (youth-)hostel for the first time to trying to open a lock with a needle, we had some problems, but all in all I’d do that same trip again if I should choose. Enjoy some photos and yes, you’ll get spammed by London.

Herzlichst, Taykure.

Ex_Machina |Review

Hello Word,

a few weeks (well months) I saw the motion picture “Ex Machina” with a good friend in Munich. I thought the story was interesting and that it wouldn’t be a ‘mainstream’ movie. Well, I wasn’t put down by the performance and change of things.

I watched it in English with German subtitles, my first time doing so in a cinema, well a-ma-zing! Check out your independent/alternative cinemas in your region, they have amazing movies most times! I watched Boyhood in one of those cinemas, too, on which I’ve done a review in the past.

Boyhood (my review here)

Plot:

“CALEB SMITH (DOMHNALL GLEESON), A PROGRAMMER AT AN INTERNET-SEARCH GIANT, WINS A COMPETITION TO SPEND A WEEK AT THE PRIVATE MOUNTAIN ESTATE OF THE COMPANY’S BRILLIANT AND RECLUSIVE CEO, NATHAN BATEMAN (OSCAR ISAAC).

UPON HIS ARRIVAL, CALEB LEARNS THAT NATHAN HAS CHOSEN HIM TO BE THE HUMAN COMPONENT IN A TURING TEST-CHARGING HIM WITH EVALUATING THE CAPABILITIES, AND ULTIMATELY THE CONSCIOUSNESS, OF NATHAN’S LATEST EXPERIMENT IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

THAT EXPERIMENT IS AVA (ALICIA VIKANDER), A BREATHTAKING A.I. WHOSE EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE PROVES MORE SOPHISTICATED — AND MORE DECEPTIVE — THAN THE TWO MEN COULD HAVE IMAGINED.”

I thought that the movie had amazing cations of nature (don’t laugh, it’s true!) the colors were very vibrant and fresh. As the movie is very futuristic it also contains much electricity, clear lines and white tones. I couldn’t compare the world in the movie to my world, how I am living, but it is a interesting idea of someone imagining the future. Besides the futuristic parts, there were also really greatly thought-out parts about love, about humans and much more. I liked that it was focussed about the technology but wasn’t expanded into a level I and most people cannot understand. The guy was put into a completely new world and it was interesting to see how he changed and what actions he took. In addition to that, this movie is not predictable at all, you think you know how it ends, but for me it was a really good turn, well thought out and left you thinking about it for many more hours! I can only recommend you to watch it, do let me know what you think of it.

What are your favorite ‘underrated/not mainstream’ movies?

Herzlichst, Taykure
