If it's something you watch or hear or read, this is the general grab-bag for it.

we germans did take until the 80's some ice sweets, (yes we did), (little bars of chocolate filled with ice cream)
But today pop corn is also usual in german cinemas.

Little sidebar here, but we used to - and still - have these ice cream cones called "choc tops", which are an ice cream cone with the ice cream part dipped in chocolate. They come in many flavours, and they are very very yummy (my favourite is the choc mint)! Choc tops and popcorn are essential treats for a night at the cinema, but steer clear of the giant soft drinks unless you'd like to walk out halfway through the movie to "answer the call of nature"... :pout:
If this last post seems ridiculous, please disregard it. Thank you. ;)

There is a film documentation about computer & robot technology
Image
http://www.plugandpray-film.de/en/

The english trailer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1-2e484u1A

and the german trailer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_9Y5059j0o

And that's why I did post it here.
Did you watch the german trailer?
No? You can not speak german?
Yeah, that's a problem, no, not really -. You have seen the english one, allright, what do you notice?
Yes, the german movie trailer is much more fun to watch than this styled english usual alldays movie trailer, with modern piano music.
You could think these are two different movies. And more difficult, what will it be? A serious documentation? A funny view of computerism?
Or...
Want all germans humoristic documentations?
Will the english audience get the feeling to watch something intelligent styled and smooth?

Now the Content
http://www.plugandpray-film.de/en/content.html
Plug & Pray - Of Computers and other Human Beings

Since antiquity, humankind has dreamed of creating intelligent machines. The invention of the computer and the breathtaking pace of technological progress appear to be bringing the realisation of this dream within our grasp. Scientists and engineers across the world, like Raymond Kurzweil and Hiroshi Ishiguro, are working on the development of intelligent robots, which are poised to become an integral part of all areas of human life. Robots are to do the housework, look after the children, care for the elderly... Yet, the ultimate vision goes even further, envisioning a merger of man and machine that will throw off the biological shackles of evolution and finally make eternal life a reality. The film delves into a world in which computer technology, robotics, biology, neuroscience, and developmental psychology merge. We visit the world’s leading experts in their laboratories in Japan, the USA, Italy and Germany. One of their very own, a pioneer of computer development and artificial intelligence, former MIT professor Joseph Weizenbaum, has become one of the harshest critics of those visions of technological omnipotence. He sees the widespread belief that nature can be entirely grasped by means of science and thus is computable as a disastrous aberration of human thinking. Weizenbaum, who created ELIZA, the world’s first speech recognition programme and mother of all chatbots, witnessed how, within only a few decades, computers have been entrusted with all kinds of tasks, even decision-making. Wary of unstinting devotion to progress, he keeps asking: Do we need all this? And what will it mean to be human in a world run by machines?

Image
Allright, you will never see this documentation, no chance.
It's like every good and interesting stuff, you will never even know about it.
That's why I tell you this here, just for fun, or the hope that it open your ears and eyes if there is something similar, maybe far away hidden on an unknown satellite channel.

But it is neccesary to look into the ugliest face even it is your own, to ban all the nasty ghosts.

Yes, it is unfortunate that Mr Hitler and his cronies decided to use that logo for their own purposes. Mind you, the symbol was used harmlessly for centuries before it got such a bad reputation. I believe it was originally used as a symbol for the Sun; the arms of the cross are meant to indicate the direction of the sun's path across the sky, rolling like a wheel.
Apparently the symbol is still used in Asia, which gives rise to the strange appearance (culturally at least) of temples prominently filled with swastikas...
If this last post seems ridiculous, please disregard it. Thank you. ;)

I meant to reply to the Worst Christmas Gifts post, but I got distracted by looking through the site (oh my GOD some of that stuff is awful).

The worst Christmas present I remember getting was an alarm clock that a close relative bought for me off eBay.
I have (or had?) a reputation for over-sleeping, so they got me one of those gimmicky clocks that has a helicopter part that flies off the top when the alarm rings - the idea being that you can only turn the alarm off if you put the bit that flew away back on the base (assuming you can find it, of course).

Unfortunately, it was very cheaply made, and the propeller part broke after a few months. I repaired that part, but then the alarm actually failed to go off when it was meant to one day, and made me late for work! (Turned out the batteries had run down just enough to prevent the alarm from triggering, but kept the clock display going so everything looked normal. Stupid lying clock!)

That, coupled with the vaguely insulting intent of the gift - "Hey, we think you're too lazy and stupid to wake up to a regular alarm clock, so we got you THIS!" - made it an obvious choice for removal come spring cleaning time. No offence, it's the thought that counts, blah blah blah... :P

You have seen the cartoon at Alfador's birthday thread?
And you didn't know what it means, because you're to young to have seen it in the cinema?
Here it is: the answer.

There are no pictures.
But it's no bird and no plane, it even can't fly, ahm, HE can't fly.
But, he is in Berlin.
Germany's first SUPERHERO

Here are the rumors...

@,@
Well, however, so called "Real Life Superheroes" do exist, mostly in the USA.

I wonder if this stuff in Berlin is a kind of fake, a performance by som art students or so...
Or maybe someone did have the idea to publish a comic book with a superhero in Berlin.

Well a few german superheroes you can find here on this website

Hi
This time I want you to invite to a website, an exhibition in Paris about Moebius, also known as Giraud.
The french artist did many things you like.

Shame on you. :mrgreen:

The exhibition is open until March 13th 2011, in Paris, France.

At television you will have often some repeated material like series or films

So let me "repeat" a fantasy SF animated movie.
Fantastic Planet
Part1 in english
http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=DE&hl=de&v=ys8AkwMRvgo
I'm sure you can find the other parts also on youtube.
In the old forum there was a link to it.

Why now?
Simple, the DVD was suddenly in my hands again.
I can't upload it to you, but the youtube version is still there.

And feel free to look at the right side there are links to other films
Ghandahar for example,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3FsASNa ... re=related
or "Les maîtres du temps", ~ "The Masters of Time", in german it is called "Die Herrscher der Zeit" also a DVD which was suddenly again in my hands
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Vx4qR5h ... re=related
it reminds me to the times when I did read all the Schwermetall Comic books, oops sorry, "Heavy Metal" comic books.

And I did discovered some other animated movies, so if you are bored by your usual TV, ...

Now it is time to learn something about us germans.

I discovered on you tube some examples about our behaviour.
These clips are mostly from the late 70's ud early 80's

But first, learning german
