It's Grammy night


Tonight the Grammy Awards will be presented from Staples Center in Los Angeles! The most important American awards for the music industry, so it's a big night!

Among the performers tonight: Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas, P!nk, Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi, Taylor Swift, Green Day and Elton John.

A list of the winners will be posted tomorrow!

City of the day: Tokyo


We're in Tokyo, the captial of Japan, with a population of 12 million. Here are my three highlights:

1) Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776 m. Along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku, it is one of Japan's "Three Holy Mountains"An active volcano[3] that last erupted in 1707–08, Mount Fuji is just west of Tokyo, and can be seen on a clear day. Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers.

2) The Tokyo Stock Exchange, or TSE is the second largest stock exchange in the world by aggregate market capitalization of its listed companies, second only to the New York Stock Exchange. As of 31 December 2007, the Tokyo Stock Exchange had 2,414 listed companies with a combined market capitalization of $4.3 trillion.

3) Established in 1872, the Tokyo National Museum, or TNM, is the oldest and largest museum in Japan. The museum collects, houses, and preserves a comprehensive collection of art works and archaeological objects of Asia, focusing on Japan. The museum holds over 110,000 objects, which includes 87 Japanese National Treasure holdings and 610 Important Cultural Property holdings. The museum also conducts research and organizes educational events related to its collection.

This is part 6 out of a series of 50. Next city tomorrow: Toronto.

A million lovesongs - live in Manchester


And finally, have a look at A Million Lovesongs by Take That, live at Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, during The Ultimate Tour.

Never forget - live in Manchester


Enjoy Never Forget, live by Take That, during The Ultimate Tour at Old Traffod Stadium in Manchester.

Could it be magic - live in Manchester


The second video from Take That's The Ultimate Tour: Could It Be Magic, live in Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester.

Back for good - live in Manchester


Four video's from Take That's comeback show The Ultimate Tour. First off, here's Back For Good, live at Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester.

A little too late


Ans speaking of Take That, I totally forgot: it was Mark Owen's 38th birthday last Wednesday. So, a little late: happy birthday!

Take one, take two


At the end of last year, Take That released two very special autobiographical books. The first, ‘Take One’, chronicles the band’s rise to fame and their massive success during the 90s. ‘Take Two’ covers Take That’s recent triumphant comeback.

A very special collector’s edition set of the two books is now available from the Penguin store. It comes in an exclusive Take That slipcase, complete with four ribboned bookmarks and a certificate of ownership signed by Mark, Gary, Howard and Jason. There are only a limited number of these signed editions available, making it the perfect Valentine’s present for that special TT fan in your life.

Blah blah blah


Ke$ha is in Los Angeles, shooting the video for her second single Blah Blah Blah. She´s been Tweeting about it for a couple of days now, and of course it´s a big deal to her. TiK ToK was such a huge success, it will be difficult to top.

My guess is Ke$ha will be somewhat of a one hit wonder, with TiK ToK being her only real hit. If I´m wrong though, that would be cool, as I really like her music.

Greeted by fans


Joe Jonas greets some fans who were waiting outside his parent’s home in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon.

The girls joked with the paparazzi afterwards and joked that they hoped they don’t end up on TMZ.

At Sundance


Chace Crawford attends the premiere of his new movie, Twelve, at the Eccles Theatre during the 2010 Sundance Film Festival on Friday night (January 29) in Park City, Utah.

Me & City


Orlando Bloom and Agyness Deyn are in the new campaign for Me & City, portraying a young Hollywood couple (which shouldn't be too difficult for them).

Looking hot!

Wax museum


Isn't she a little too young to be resorting to plastic surgery already? Christina Aguilera was spotted this weekend, looking like something out of a wax museum. What's going on?

High school musical 2


Today on Dutch television (it's on as we speak): High School Musical 2, starring Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.

Number 1


The "Hope for Haiti Now"album debuts at No. 1 on the U.S. album chart this week, selling 171,000 copies in just two days of release.

Following the telethon Friday night, the 20-track live album was only available as a digital download for the tracking week, which ended Sunday night. (Physical copies of the album aren't yet produced or distributed.)

"Hope for Haiti Now" is the first album available solely as a digital download to debut at No. 1 in Billboard's 54-year history.

City of the day: Cape Town


3,5 Million people live in Cape Town, making it the second most populous city in South Africa. Here are my three highlights:

1) The Port Of Cape Town. Because of its position along one of the world's busiest trade routes it is one of the busiest ports in South Africa, handling the largest amount of fresh fruit and second only to Durban as a container port. The port also has significant repair and maintenance facilities that are used by several large fishing fleets and parts of the West African oil industry. Because of the many tourist attractions offered by Cape Town and its surrounding region, many cruise ships also berth in the port.

2) Table Mountain is a flat-topped mountain forming a prominent landmark overlooking the city of Cape Town, and is featured in the flag of Cape Town and other local government insignia. It is a significant tourist attraction, with many visitors using the cableway or hiking to the top. The mountain forms part of the Table Mountain National Park.

3) Robben Island is an island in Table Bay, some seven kilometres off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa. The name is Dutch for "seal island". It is of particular note as it was here that former South African President and Nobel Laureate Nelson Mandela and former South African President Kgalema Motlanthe, alongside many other political prisoners, spent decades imprisoned during the apartheid era. Also, because of the presence of seals, there are many Great White Sharks swimming near the island, making it a very dangerous place to swim.

This is part 5 out of a series of 50. Next city tomorrow: Tokyo.

Vote for Kylie


Kylie's iconic performance of 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' stole the show at the 2002 Brit Awards and is nominated for the 'BRITs Performance of 30 Years' at this years Awards show.

Dressed in a sexy Dolce & Gabbana white dress with thigh high silver boots, Kylie wowed the audience at Earls Court and those at home watching on TV with her show-stopping entrance on a silver vinyl disc emblazoned with her logo.

The inspired mash-up with New Order's 'Blue Monday' added an exciting new twist to her monster worldwide hit and, with its amazing choreography and production design, Kylie's electric performance that evening stands out as one of the most memorable of her career.

Kylie's 2002 Brits performance will feature this weekend on 'The Brits Hits 30' (Sat 23rd, ITV1), a unique anniversary programme that celebrates The BRIT Awards reaching its 30th year by viewing some memorable performances that the public can vote for to receive the special 'BRITs Performance of 30 Years' award.

Nobody knows me - 'live' in Lisbon


And finally, here's a video of Nobody Knows Me, filmed live during Madonna's Re-Invention Tour in Lisbon.

Although... since she lipsyncs the entire song, the word 'live' is perhaps a little inappropriate.

Into the groove - live in Lisbon


One of the highlights of Madonna's Re-Invention Tour: Into The Groove, with bagpipes and Scottish costumes.

Don't tell me - live in Lisbon


The second video today, from Madonna's Re-Invention Tour in Lisbon, is Don't Tell Me.

Hanky panky - live in Lisbon


The last day of video's from Madonna's Re-Invention Tour 2004, live in Lisbon, Portugal.

Let's start with Hanky Panky!

Don't ask don't tell


President Obama used his State of Union address to voice his support for allowing gays and lesbians to serve in the military.

Since taking office, Barack Obama has made it clear that he supports the agenda of gay rights activists who want to repeal the ridiculous 1993 law that strictly prohibits gays from serving in the military. During his State of the Union address Wednesday night, Obama said: "This year, I will work with Congress and our military to finally repeal the law that denies gay Americans the right to serve the country they love because of who they are."

Hurrah!

Happy being a band


In spite of previous rumours, according to Joe Jonas, the Jonas Brothers have not split up.

“We are happy being a band, and it’s what we’ve always wanted to do. We are not breaking up. There’s no reason for us to do that.” he told People Magazine.

Cigarette break


Britney Spears was spotted in Miami, where she was photographed taking a cigarette break between recording her new album. This Sunday, she will be at the Grammy Awards, sitting front row along the likes of Beyonce and Elton John.

Boat trip

This Sunday, Beyonce will appear on popular TV show 60 Minutes.

CBS’ Steve Kroft will go behind the scenes with Beyonce and learn just why she’s become one of the world’s most popular singers.

The 60 Minutes episode featuring Beyonce’s interview will air at 7/6c this Sunday on CBS (right before the Grammy Awards!) - don’t miss it!

Monday will be rated R


Rihanna will be on Monday's episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show! The episode has been filmed already, and the photo above is taken fron it.

Not only will Rihanna be interviewed by Ellen, she will also sing a song from her current album Rated R.

Monster duet


Rumour has it Lady Gaga will be opening the Grammy Awards this weekend, \in a duet with no-one less than Sir Elthon John! How cool would that be?

Let's hope it's true!

City of the day: Berlin


It's the capital of Germany, a history book you can walk through, and home for 3,4 million people: Berlin. Here are my three highlights:

1) The Brandenburg Gate is a former city gate and one of the main symbols of Berlin and Germany. It is the only remaining gate of a series through which one formerly entered Berlin. In 1963, U.S. President John F. Kennedy visited the Brandenburg Gate. The Soviets hung large red banners across it to prevent him looking into the East. On November 9, 2009, Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, walked through Brandenburg Gate with Russia’s Mikhail Gorbachev and Poland's Lech Walesa as part of the 20-year celebration of tearing down the Berlin Wall.

2) The Berlin Wall was a concrete barrier built by the German Democratic Republic that completely enclosed the city of West Berlin, separating it from East Germany, including East Berlin. The Wall included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, which circumscribed a wide area (later known as the "death strip") that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defenses.

3) Potsdamer Platz is an important public square and traffic intersection in the centre of Berlin. It is named after the city of Potsdam, some 25 km to the south west, and marks the point where the old road from Potsdam passed through the city wall of Berlin at the Potsdam Gate. After developing within the space of little over a century from an intersection of rural thoroughfares into the most bustling traffic intersection in Europe, it was totally laid waste during World War II and then left desolate during the Cold War era when the Berlin Wall bisected its former location. Since German reunification, Potsdamer Platz has been the site of extensive redevelopment.

This is part 4 out of a series of 50. Next city tomorrow: Cape Town.

Like a prayer - live in Lisbon


And last but not least, enjoy Like A Prayer, filmed live during Madonna's Re-Invention Tour in Lisbon, Portugal.

Papa don't preach - live in Lisbon


One of the highlights of Madonna's Re-Invention Tour 2004: Papa Don't Preach, filmed live in Lisbon, Portugal.

Nothing fails - live in Lisbon


The second video from Madonna's leaked Re-Invention Tour DVD: Nothing Fails.

Material girl - live in Lisbon


Time for some more video's from Madonna's leaked Re-Invention Tour DVD, recorded in Lisbon, Portugal.

Let's start with Material Girl.

Sex and the city 3


Sex And The City 2 isn't even in cinema's yet, but word is already out there will be a Sex And The City 3 as well, and filming will start very soon, so that the ladies will look the same as they did in part 2.

Better milk it while you can, right? I don't mind though, I love Sex And The City, so the more movies, the better!

Disturbia


Tonight on Dutch television: Disturbia, starring Shia LaBeouf, Sarah Roemer and David Morse.

Alone on the carpet


Rihanna's not fueling any rumours this weekend, on Grammy's night! Instead of taking her boyfriend Matt Kemp with her, she insists on going alone.

In fact, she says she has always gone alone, even if she was in a relationship.

Crowd pleaser


This evening, I've been watching my favourite Madonna tour ever, Re-Invention (it's not for nothing I've got a Re-Invent Yourself tattoo) filmed for the first time through the official camera's. First of all, I've got to say: I loved the show! I loved it just as much as I loved it in 2004 when I was standing front row at POP Bercy in Paris, and Gelredome Stadium Arnhem, and the next day in the stands at Gelredome Stadium. If there's one thing Madonna knows how to do, it's putting on a good show.

One of the features of the Re-Invention Tour, was the fact Madonna acted a little less distant from the audience than she usually is. I mean, we all know she will never be a Kylie Minogue, who is actually able to connect to her audience, but one might expect something from the official biggest female popstar ever, right? Normally, Madonna's not too good at getting along with her audience, and although during Re-Invention she's no natural, she's trying at least.

This would sound rather silly (me being a Kylie Minogue fan) but I've long given up on Madonna ever being a crowd pleaser. For some reason she will never be able to connect with her audience the way other performers do, probably because she's just not capable of showing affection to anyone. This show was a good enough try for me.

Back for good?


Here we go again... as it happens every few months ever since Take That started The Ultimate Tour back in 2007, The Sun has started another rumour Robbie Williams is getting back together with his former bandmates. Sure, both Take That and Robbie are on the Haiti charity single, but so are lots of other artists. I mean, is Kylie Minogue going to be joining Take That? Ha!

The Sun claims the guys have been in the studio together to record songs, but this is something The Sun claims every couple of weeks or so, and sounds highly doubtful, as both Take That and Robbie Williams are doing just fine without the other.

Zac Efron on fire


Zac Efron is working overtime to put more distance between him and his Disneyfied past, signing on to both star in and executive produce Fire, a thriller based on the same-named graphic novel.

E! News confirms that Efron will play an undergrad who is chosen for a special CIA project that tests whether ordinary citizens can—with singing and dancing proper training—be turned into forces to be reckoned with.

Sounds hot!

At the office


A new picture of me, taken this afternoon in my office.

New couple


Rumour has it Gossip Girl hottie Chace Crawford has got a new girlfriend. Her name is Jennifer Akerman, and the two of them were spotted at a party in Hollywood earlier this month.

Too bad he's off the market.

Almost Alice


Avril Lavigne is back with a new song! She has released “Alice” from the forthcoming album Almost Alice, the companion soundtrack to the Alice In Wonderland score.

Click here to listen to it! I like it very much!

Heating it up


This Tuesday, New York City's Union Square will be lit up and covered in fog to celebrate the new fragrance by Beyonce: Heat. A day later, on Wednesday, Beyonce will make a personal appearance at
Macy’s Herald Square!

The first customers to pick up her Beyonce Heat three-piece fragrance set will get the chance to meet Beyonce and take a photo with her!

City of the day: Rio de Janeiro


It's a long way from Sydney, Australia, to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil! Yet, here we are in this huge city, where more than 11 million people live. A well deserved entry in my City Of The Day series, so here are my three highlights:

1) Christ the Redeemer (Portuguese: O Cristo Redentor, formerly Portuguese: Christo redemptor) is a statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; considered the largest art deco statue in the world. The statue stands 39.6 metres tall, including its 9.5 metre pedestal, and 30 metres wide. It weighs 635 tons and is located at the peak of the 700 metres Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city. It is one of the tallest of its kind in the world. A symbol of Catholicism, the statue has become an icon of Rio and Brazil. It is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone.

2) Starting out as a festival before the somber mood of Lent, Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is considered one of the greatest shows on Earth. The first festivals of Rio date back to 1723. The carnival parade is filled with people and floats from various samba schools. A samba school can either be an actual school or just a collaboration of local neighbors that want to attend carnival.

3) Ipanema is a neighborhood located on the southern region of the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, between Leblon and Arpoador. The beach at Ipanema became widely known by the song "The Girl from Ipanema" ("Garota de Ipanema"), written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinícius de Moraes.

This is part 3 out of a series of 50. Next city tomorrow: Berlin.

Burning up - live in Lisbon


And finally, for today, enjoy Madonna's Burning Up, filmed live during the Re-Invention Tour 2004 in Lisbon, Portugal.

Mother and father - live in Lisbon


The third video today: Mother And Father, filmed live in Lisbon, during Madonna's Re-Invention Tour 2004.

Crazy for you - live in Lisbon


The second video from Madonna's Re-Invention Tour in Lisbon, Portugal, is Crazy For You.

Deeper and deeper - live in Lisbon


Since I'm going to watch my new Re-Invention Tour DVD, filmed live in Lisbon, Portugal, I thought it would be nice to have you join in on the fun.

So, today's four video's will be from the DVD show. Let's start with Deeper And Deeper.

Get up, Lisbon


Thanks to Michael, as of today I am the proud owner of Madonna's Get Up Lisbon: Re-Invention Tour live from Portugal DVD. Madonna never officially released this DVD, and fans have been hoping for over 5 years it would at one point or another see the light of day.

It leaked to the internet about a week ago, but since I've never downloaded a movie in my life, of course I didn't know how to get it, so Michael was kind enough to burn me a copy on a DVD and send it to me.

(and yes, I am against illegal downloading, but the fact Madonna doesn't release this DVD, means she or her record company is also not losing any profit from me having an illegal copy. If she had wanted to prevent this, she should have released it officially)

Rated R


This morning I decided to buy myself a little gift, so I ordered Rihanna's most recent album Rated R from Play.com. As you may know, in May I'm going to her concert at Gelredome Stadium in Arnhem, so of course before that time I need to learn all the songs by heart.

I hope it gets delivered soon!

Sweet home Alabama


Tonight on Dutch television: Sweet Home Alabama, starring Reese Witherspoon, Josh Lucas and Patrick Dempsey. I've got it on DVD and can highly recommend it!

Deathly hallows 3D


As was known, the last Harry Potter novel, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows', would be split in two for the film version, so that the studio could milk it to the max and make a double profit out of it. However, today it has been revealed the new movies will be shot in 3D, joining many other movies in this new trend.

Well, actually not so new, as 3D has been a big feature in the 80s as well. 3D is pretty good for theme park movies that last just about 15 minutes, but when it comes to a full movie, the glasses really start to bug me.

Mail to Equality California

After the last e-mail I got from Equality California, I decided to write them a thank you and good luck mail:

Dear people from Equality California,

As a gay guy from the Netherlands, where gay marriage has been legal for years now, I would like you to know I've been following the Proposition (H)8 lawsuit, and I wish you all the best in winning it!It's good to know people like you are fighting for equality for all Californians. I hope you will win the lawsuit, and I hope it will set a precedent for the entire United States.

Also, I've used my website many times to promote your goal, most recently just half an hour ago: http://totallytheo.blogspot.com/2010/01/support-equality-california.html

Keep up the good work!
Sincerely, Theo from the Netherlands


Feel like sending them an e-mail of support as well? Please do so by clicking here!

Bye bye, Ugly Betty


Ratings have been declining for a while now, so the question wasn't really if, but how soon Ugly Betty would end anytime soon. Well, ABC confirmed today, it will end right after the current season.

“We’ve mutually come to the difficult decision to make this Ugly Betty’s final season, and are announcing now as we want to allow the show ample time to write a satisfying conclusion,” ABC and the show’s producers wrote in a statement. “We are extremely proud of this groundbreaking series, and felt it was important to give the fans a proper farewell.”

Support Equality California


A new letter from Equality California, as the Proposition 8 trial is coming to its end:

Dear Theo,

As we’ve seen in the federal challenge to Prop. 8, our opponents have deliberately misled Californians on the distinction between civil and religious marriage, claiming that that clergy who refuse to perform marriages for same-sex couples would be punished and places of worship would lose their tax-exempt status. Thousands of EQCA volunteers who go door to door talking to people about marriage have reported that many Californians do not know that there is a difference between civil and religious marriage.
To alleviate confusion and to ensure our Constitution’s promise of religious freedom, Senator Mark Leno (D – San Francisco) introduced a bill today, sponsored by Equality California and co-sponsored by the California Council of Churches IMPACT, that protects clergy from being forced to perform any civil marriage that is contrary to the tenets of his or her faith and protects faith institutions’ tax-exempt status.
Regardless of party or ideology, every California legislator should support religious freedom. Email your representative and ask them to become a co-author of the Civil Marriage Religious Freedom Act.
When this bill is enacted, it will provide incontrovertible evidence that civil marriage for same-sex couples will not impact clergy or the freedom of religion.
Email your representatives right now and ask them to become a co-author. If you’re registered with EQCA’s Action Center, you can reply to this email and a message will be sent automatically, or you can log on to add a personal message.
Take action now and ask your representative to support religious freedom in marriage!
In solidarity,

Geoff Kors
Executive Director
Equality California


If you can, please support Equality California!

Everybody's girl


Check it out: it's Jennifer Lopez' new single Everybody's Girl, taken from her upcoming album love?

Pretty cool!

iPad: something I won't be buying


Apple CEO Steve Jobs reveiled the new Apple gadget, called the iPad, today, at an electronics tradeshow in San Fransisco. The iPad will be released worldwide in two months, and is somewhat of an inbetweener of the smartphone and laptop. It won't have a real keyboard, although it can project a keypad on the touch screen, just like an iPhone.

The most expensive version will cost no less than $ 829, which is exactly $ 829 too much if you ask me. Funny how this news comes in right in the week I've decided never ever to buy anything from Apple again.

Live in Amsterdam


Katie Melua will perform a concert at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam on December 1, LiveNation announced today. Her new album, produced by William Orbit, will be released in May.

Tickets will go on sale this Saturday through LiveNation and Eventim.

City of the day: Sydney


Sydney may not be the capital of Australia, but it is the largest city of the continent. It's also the capital of the state of New South Wales and a popular tourist attraction. Here are my three highlights:

1) Bondi Beach is about one kilometre long and receives many visitors throughout the year. There is an underwater shark net shared, during the summer months, with other beaches along the southern part of the coast. Pods of whales and dolphins have been sighted in the bay during the months of migration. Fairy penguins, while uncommon, are sometimes also seen swimming close to shore. Bondi Beach is the end point of the City to Surf Fun Run which is held each year in August. The race attracts over 63,000 entrants who complete the 14 km run from the central business district of Sydney to Bondi Beach.

2) The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre on Bennelong Point in Sydney. It was conceived and largely built by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, who, in 2003, received the Pritzker Prize, architecture's highest honour. The Opera House was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 28 June 2007. It is one of the 20th century's most distinctive buildings and one of the most famous performing arts centres in the world.

3) Sydney Festival is Australia's largest and most attended annual cultural event running every January since it was first held in 1977. Its program features more than 50 events including classical and contemporary music, dance, circus, drama, visual arts and public lectures. Its indoor and outdoor presentations attract an estimated 1 million people annually.

This is part 2 out of a series of 50. Next city tomorrow: Rio de Janeiro.

Freak show


These days, in every new picture of Madonna that surfaces, she looks more like something out of a freak show. As I've said before, she really should stop going to the plastic surgeon, as the results are really starting to get a bit horrific these days.

Here she is, pictured while going out for dinner with designer Tom Ford at Scott's Restaurant in New York City.

How I met J.Lo


This is cool: one of my favourite singers, Jennifer Lopez, will be a guest star on one of my favourite sitcoms, How I Met Your Mother!

J.Lo will play Anita Appleby, an author of self-help books who enlightens women on how to “train” men through denial, according to USA Today.

How I Met Your Mother was renewed for a sixth season this week and celebrated its 100th episode with a legendary musical number last month. Jennifer's episode will be aired in March in the United States, and hopefully soon after in Europe.

Come into my world - live in Rotterdam


The last video today, is Come Into My World, from the KylieX2008 Tour at Ahoy Rotterdam, with my on front row!

Speakerphone - live in Rotterdam


The intro and Speakerphone from KylieX2008, with me on front row, from Ahoy Rotterdam.

Flower - live in Rotterdam


The second video from the KylieX2008 Tour at Rotterdam's Ahoy (where I was front row), is Flower!

Your disco needs you - live in Rotterdam


Today, I'm going to post four video's from the KylieX2008 Tour at Ahoy Rotterdam. Obviously these video's are filmed from the crowd so the quality isn't that good, but it gives you an idea how great the show was. I was exactly front row center, which is basically the best spot in the venue.

Here we go, with Your Disco Needs You.

Titanic or Avatar


Thanks to the 10 people who voted on last week's poll 'Which unreleased song should Kylie Minogue release?' Here are the results:

White Diamond - 3 votes
That's Why They Write Love SOngs - 1 vote
Ruffle My Feathers - 1 vote
Flower - 3 votes
Better Than Today - 2 votes

For my new poll, now that James Cameron's Avatar has beaten James Cameron's Titanic as the highest grossing movie of all time, I would like to know which of the two movies you liked better.

Voting's on!

Not productive, still fun


To say this has been a productive day at work would be an overstatement, but it has been a fun day for sure. First, I worked for about three hours, after which we went for a paid by the office lunch at my favourite lunch restaurant Kaap Hoorn. There were iceskaters on the lake on which the restaurant borders, so there was something nice to look at.

After lunch, which took about an hour and a half, we went back to the office where I worked for a couple more hours. At around 4.30 it was time for a goodbye drink with a co-worker who accepted a job closer to her home. Although I'm sad to see her go, I'm sure I will see her again sometime on a drink somewhere.

All in all, a great day at woprk, especially for a Wednesday, which is normally kind of a boring day.

Popcorn movie


Ziena and I went to see Did You Hear About The Morgans yesterday, the new romcom starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant, and I really liked it! I know it got some shiteous reviews in the press, and really, if you're out to see a serious movie, this is not the one for you, but if you're just looking for some fun, you've come to the right place.

I'm not going to spoil the story for those who would still like to see the movie, except that I can say that in true romcom style, of course they get back together in the end (as if you didn't know).

The acting is fun, the characters are likeable, and the storyline is easy to follow. It's a great popcorn movie, especially on such a cold night!

According to Jim


You know how a while ago I forced myself to admit I actually like sitcom The King Of Queens? Well, I've got another one for you: According To Jim.

I hate myself for liking Middle-America sitcoms, as they represent everything I despise, but this one actually makes me smile several times per episode.

Open Water 2: Adrift


Tonight on Dutch television: Open Water 2: Adrift, starring Eric Dane, Richard Speight jr. and Susan Pratt.

Help those in need


Yes, I have recorded my lines for the charity single, 'Everybody Hurts'. Great honour to be a part of this project to help those in need.

Kylie Minogue, about the Haiti charity single.
