About Redfield

Volcano tempered woman. Believes in Fus Roh Da, Hook Blades and flashlights. Loves expensive movies, junk food, and video games. Looking forward to The Hobbit movie and a zombie apocalypse.

Furby!

When I was cleaning out the wardrobe last week I found this little fella:

I am sorry that he looks so miserable. He probably spent the last 10 years in a cardbox. I will definitely brush him up and get some batteries to see if Furbyfella still works.

I’ll keep you updated °(^Δ^)°

PS – and yes, it’s really Revolver Ocelot and Claire Redfield in the background.

Mads Mikkelsen by Patrizio Di Renzo

Confession first: I should be writing on my novel and not updating my blog, but when I was browsing through my image galleries I stumbled  over those amazing pictures of Mads Mikkelsen and I really want to share it with you.

As probably everybody knows Mads would be my desired survival partner when it comes to a Zombie Apocalypse (followed by Gaahl, but that’s a different story…)

All pictures were taken by and are copyrighted to Patrizio Di Renzo.

I have always been a  huge fan of di Renzo’s photography. I love his eye for surreal yet delicate beauty (check out Banshee and Characters – you’ll soon know what I mean). He takes that kind of pictures which tell a unique story.

His creations cannot by defined in a particular currentthis statement from his website describes it best. He doesn’t take ordinary pictures. He shows something beyond the visible. This is at least my opinion.

I have been in love with Mads ever since. He is a fantastic actor who always melts into his roles (watch Valhalla Rising if you do not believe me, he doesn’t have any text in this masterpiece, but his attendance blows you away).

Anyways – I highly recommend to visit Patrizio Di Renzo’s website for more Mads and viewing pleasures!

Steps

Steps (Hermann Hesse)

Like ev’ry flower wilts, like youth is fading
and turns to age, so also one’s achieving:
Each virtue and each wisdom needs parading
in one’s own time, and must not last forever.
The heart must be, at each new call for leaving,
prepared to part and start without the tragic,
without the grief – with courage to endeavor
a novel bond, a disparate connection:
for each beginning bears a special magic
that nurtures living and bestows protection.

We’ll walk from space to space in glad progression
and should not cling to one as homestead for us.
The cosmic spirit will not bind nor bore us;
it lifts and widens us in ev’ry session:
for hardly set in one of life’s expanses
we make it home, and apathy commences.
But only he, who travels and takes chances,
can break the habits’ paralyzing stances.

It even may be that the last of hours
will make us once again a youthful lover:
The call of life to us forever flowers…
Anon, my heart! Do part and do recover!

A short random note

Ave Brethren,
as some of you might know: I am plagued with a bad tenditinis which has sent me into some kind of creative exile since I can’t really use my arm. At least I can spend some marvelous quality time with my dog and also bumming around on the sofa with books and movies seems legit!

Right now I am taking a long desired bath, totally enjoying this state of isolation. Busy life lurks just around the corner.

Saying goodbye to 2011

Dear 2011!

I loved you! I hated you! You were a bitch! You were such a good friend! It hurts me to say goodbye. And to say hello to 2012! To all my customers, friends, fellow creatives – seeing you then!

Be happy and healthy! 

As for me I was browsing through 2011, so many memories; so much experience, so much melancholy.

I explored Maastricht (Netherlands) – my current home – with my friend Henk whom I owe so much. You know why, and this will never be forgotten! Maastricht is a beautiful city!

I had the time of my life and said goodbye to London (or UK in general). Still missing all my people, wishing I will see you soon, but yet preparing for the new shit in Odessa!

Odessa: I fell in love with you. Can’t await to return to your warm embrace! Odessa is beautiful! The Black Sea is beautiful! Met so many fantastic people there (Hello Ekaterina, Lem, and Oleg!) and missing them so much! My new home!

I saw Hurts I a bazillion times live on stage! First picture was taken by Kensington Road before Theo and Adam took over the stage, I am somewhere in the front row. Second picture is a crappy picture of me and my Hurts ticket, third one shows Adam Anderson who blew a kiss into my direction ♥ ♥ Hurts are my favourite band in 2011 and surely will be in 2012 (although Dead Can Dance announced a reunion tour…)

The best thing happened to me in 2011 was my dog Baldur. We (Henk and I) just visited people who were breeding German Kleinspitz. I was thinking of getting a Kleinspitz in 2012 but at the end I took one home and never regret it! Life with a dog is awesome! I just love the little one and never want to be without him! He was born on April 20th, 2011 in Wassenberg near the Netherlandic border and the name means  “prince” from Old Norse.

And I also noticed that I love you, and only you!

कहने के लिए कैसेमैं तुमसे प्यार करता सभी भाषाओं में

Be part of my 2012. Wherever you are.

My highlights in 2011. But there was so much mor. Will I ever forget you, year of many surprises? I do not think so!

Really not!

♥♥♥♥

Loyalty got rewarded

Ave you beautiful people!

I am sick in bed with a bloody flu but this brightened up my day:

 The Dwarfs have always been my favourites in Middle Earth, I am – at heart – a child of Moria, and now it seems that my loyalty got rewarded.
Thorin Oakenshield – holy Orc!

This, Sir, is a sexy dwarf! And now – you scoffer – my loyality got rewarded! *Ba dum tsssss*

This is the end of a total random post and the beginning of my ordeal – one year till The Hobbit’s journey will start.

Arrow to the knee please!
