Most recently put eyes on [Gangster, 2002]

Gangsters [58]

That textbook ending proved to be expensive as fuack. Decent cast and setting.

anticipation

Michael Mann teaming up with Don Winslow. Reading middle-class intellectual shizzle only, but can‘t fall asleep when not listening to an audiobook and Winslow is one of my fave sleep masks.
Can‘t wait to see the next step in the visual venture of Mann.

boredom

Not much to talk about. Working quite a lot, been reading Open City by Teju Cole and drank a few beers and some vodka… but even though i enjoy beer (had few exquisite ones as well), but writing about it just seems like blabla at the moment… i rather focus on proper storing and expanding my collection. My cellar is quite small (temperature not ideal either) and the cellar in my mothers house is huge, various rooms (old mining entry) and i‘m currently considering moving most of the bottles i plan on drinking in 5+ years (or even keeping in storage longer – for possible selling as collectables – yeah, i watched too many auction & storage room selling shows!) there.
Have plans to go back to Belgium later this month, spending my birthday in a fancy place and restock on a bunch of Belgian beers. Probably do some treasure hunting as well.

Fall is the season of new TV shows… took me about 30 minutes to check through like… 10 of them and not a single one made me even want to watch the rest of the episode. Fortunately, there’s a new season of Elementary, East Bound & Down (Geez!) and Bones (slobber!) on TV. Watching Two And A Half Men and Sons Of Anarchy as well – taking too many baths to not watch these.

Boredom, part 2: To go with the flow. Had a Malheur 10 and a Augustinerbräu Lagerbier Hell tonight and, hoping for a good night’s sleep, drinking a Augustinerbräu Weissbier right now.
Might be the proper glass or experimentation with drinking temperature… the Malheur 10 tastes a lot better than the Malheur 12. It’s fruity, refreshing, perfect sweetness and just well-balanced in general – another one asking for a restock.

MONEY!!!

Just watched the fight from last week. Pretty Boy might be a douche outside, but inside the ring he’s the smartest boxer i‘ve ever had the chance to witness. His defense is just brilliant and the accurary of his punches breath-taking. Just looking at the percentage of his power shots hitting the target, it’s unbelievable. Mayweather is so much more than a bit of shoulder-rolling here and there.
„The less you get hit, the longer you last“ – Hope, the kid will last a lot longer!

Pretty Boy kind of made me think of Baby Face Nelson…


Cows! I hate cows worse than coppers!

Troy


I have this obsession with Troy. Watching it any time it’s on TV, probably about 10-12 times so far. It has everything: Some of the worst acting ever, Myrmidónes – an invincible ancient special forces team (half of them dies when hitting the coast), oversimplified mythology, lots of crowd shots, love, brotherly love, forbidden love, love of one’s country, calf love, crazy love, eternal love, holiday love, paternal love, mother love and some of the finest Hair Crime ever!
