Halo 3, hype of the year or game of the year?

Halo 3 coming to a screen near you; But only if you have an Xbox 360 of course. I have to admit that I never played any version of Halo before but I'm actually considering it now. The main reason for it is to check out if the game is over hyped or if it really lives up to the hype. Recently you have not been able to go to any game web site without getting Halo 3 ads and…

First ever YouTube movie published by me

Guess it was just about a question time before it would happen. Especially with two crazy kids who loves to take the mobile phone and make movies. I was with my son and his granddad at a skateboard ramp and did some small movie clips. So finally I had a good reason to spend some time with iMovie and ended up creating a small movie for him. The movie quality is nothing impressive; it was after all done with a…

Time for some good old DOS!!

One of my good old friends mentioned the other day that he played some of the games/demos we did back in the BrainBug times. I was like 'Eh.. How do you do that', I had already tried out the old BrainBug demo on my new Mac both when running Parallels or Windows XP without luck. So he introduced me to DOSBox which I gave it a try with the old BrainBug demo I did many years ago. Actually the file…

Upcoming theme change

I spent some time yesterday checking various themes and designs; amazing that so many exists, all with good and bad points. I found one that had the features that I required and had a nice look. I will have to do a few changes and change some graphics before it can be used as I want it. So today I asked a few of my friends what they thought about it, I have a 'test' area for such things and…

Whats up…

Guess it is time for a small update from me. I have been a bit sick this week, nothing serious just headache, throat pain, had a cold and so, more annoying than anything else really. Good thing is that I'm almost tip top again, so ready for a weekend with the crazy kids. Not that I got anything planned but they will be crazy anyway :-) I have been playing a good bit of poker this week (in the evenings)…

Early September update

As mentioned in my previous post I will be doing some changes with this site. I recently turned 37 and I want to use this 'number' to introduce some changes. Becoming 37 did of course not change anything really (just a new number), as we all grow older by the second, not a year at a time. Some of the changes I will go through will be worth writing about and some will not be worth to write about and…

Not much on my mind!!!

Any possible returning reader of this blog might have noticed that I have been posting less and less. So if you think about the title of this blog 'On My Mind' then you might come to the conclusion that I don't have much on my mind... I promise: that's not the case. I have recently been thinking about what directions I want to go with this blog, more reviews, more personal stuff, more and shorter postings or long and seldom…

Movie review: Die Hard 4.0

Die Hard 4.0 (Live Free or Die Hard) (IMDb) (Trailers) I recently went to the cinema see some action, the movie I choose was a pure action candidate and I knew it would not be boring. The movie was of course Die Hard 4.0 (But I almost ended up watching a preview of Transformers) I got to admit that I liked the 3 previous Die Hard movies; the action; the dark humor; the action; Bruce Willis; Small twists in story;…

Review of 4 movies. Part 4, the movie 300

Finally the last of the four reviews that I had planned for now. The previous reviews can be found here: Shooter, Sunshine and Music & Lyrics Today it is about the movie 300; at the end of the review I will give my recommendations for the 4 movies and let you know what I plan to get on DVD at a later stage. 300 (IMDb) (Trailers) Ever since I saw the first trailer I knew I had to see this…

Review of 4 movies. Part 3, the movie Music And Lyrics

This is the third review in my small movie review session. The two previous reviews were of Shooter and Sunshine. Music and Lyrics (IMDb) (Trailers) Saw this movie the other day and was very pleased with the whole experience. The movie should not be taken serious (few movies should) as it is a comedy. It features a great combination of Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. To make a long story very short; Hugh Grant plays the role of an old…
