After collecting CD’s for many years, I will soon reach 1000 titles in my collection. Thus, I’ve decided to mark the celebration with showing the entire CD collection through a blog series as my tribute to the physical music format. I want to post them in alphabetical order in each post, and the number of letters in each post will depend on how many titles I have in each letter. This is just the physical part of the collection, I also have a bunch of digital albums (Mp3) that I buy from iTunes, and vinyls, so this is not the entire collection, just the CD’s. But I’m old-fashioned, and prefer to have my CD’s in physical format.

Some more car accessories. This time my car got some horns, a tail and a fork to decorate the volkswagen icon. I love it, and the car loves it too!

I’ve gotten more and more into vinyls in the recent years, and after buying the CD of Dimmu Borgir’s newest album “Eonian”, which is already one of my favorite albums of the year,  I had to pick up the vinyl box set. And just for fun I decided to make a quick unboxing post to see how it went. Here we go:

Ghostland movie review

For those of us who are into the horror movie genre, Pascal Laugier is a familiar name. He earlier brought us “Martyrs” , a movie that even to this day keeps shocking its audience (and french horror is known for not being shy about breaking a few boundaries here and there). He’s also behind two lesser known horror movies: “House of Voices” aka “Saint Ange”, and “The Tall Man” , the latter being more of a mystery thriller. In other words: I couldn’t help but being at least a little curious about Mr. Laugier’s new addition to horror, “Ghostland” .

The story follows a mother and her two daughters as they are on their way to their new home: an old country house they’ve inherited from her aunt. Early on, we learn that one of the girls (Beth) loves writing horror stories, which causes a bit of jealousy in her sister (Vera) as their mother keeps encouraging Beth’s talents. We also learn that Beth is quite a fanciful personality – an important hint which will make sense later on.

On their first night in the new home, they’re attacked by intruders who’s intent is murder – two characters that are so over-the-top that they’re almost a little unbelieveable: a skinny goth-looking transvestite and a huge ogre-looking freak who is (of course) retarded. And they’re driving a candy truck. Oh yes. However, even though the villains are a bit too much, they actually fit well inside the already weird country house filled with creepy dolls and strange knick-knacks.

While “Ghostland” does not shock or repulse in the same way as “Martyrs” did, it’s still an intense and suspenseful movie, and shows that Laugier’s still got what it takes.

Two new arrivals from Spreadshirt. And they don’t disappoint.

An old Tim Burton style inspired skullhead. Not sure when I made this, maybe around 2003-04..

Got this cool accessory for my car recently, as a gift from Vanja. It can hold both small cans and pint cans.
