Alright, first things first: My laptop is back from repairs. It returned a few days back, but I wanted to wait a few days before publicly announcing, as there was a good chance that it would start acting up again. Luckily, however, it didn't!
They replaced the keyboard, put all the screws back where they belong and fixed my disc-drive (which fell off). I have no bad things to say about Bol.com's service :3 I still wouldn't recommend HP laptops to anyone, though. Those things are just horrible. Anyway, it seems to work now, so all is good for now...
In other news: I recently went to PAC festival. What it is? I watched 5 movies (most of them were national premières. The movies I watched were:
- Her (Pretty awesome movie - I recommend it :3)
- Ain't Them Bodies Saints (Really bad movie, not recommended unless if you can't seem to fall asleep)
- August: Osage County (Really good movie, definitely recommended. Think of it as Little Miss Sunshine, but a tragedy instead of a feelgood movie and not quite as brilliant. So still a really good movie!)
- The Grand Budapest Hotel (Best movie I've seen that day. Must see. Absolutely amazing - watch it as SOON as you can!!!)
- The Keeper of Lost Causes (A fair detective movie. I'd recommend it to fans of the genre. It tries to be more than it is, and kinda fails at it, but it is still pretty good movie)
So yeah, a few micro reviews
My young cousin (6 years old or something) came over for a few days. I played the original Super Mario Bros. with her. She absolutely loved it. It's pretty much the first video game she's ever played, I think, so I am very glad. I also let her play Super Mario Bros. 3 for a while, and though she liked it, she wanted to go back to the "one-level" game Ah, that was so enjoyable...
So it seems like Twitch Plays Pokémon has beaten Pokémon Red and has continued to Silver/Gold! Congratz to everyone who followed it! Today, I found an awesome new Twitch Plays project, though: Twitch Plays Golden Sun!! It is kinda lacking activity and has gone offline an hour ago... But I am still hopeful! It is also a good proof-of-concept for, for example, a Twitch Plays Final Fantasy 6. I am sure that could become popular
Anyway, I was hoping those of you who are interested to check it out once it goes online again. Here is a link: www.twitch.tv/twitchplaysgs
Have a good day!
