Star-Trek anniversary preview

Star-Trek anniversary preview

2016 is the year the first USS Enterprise-NCC and the entire Star-Trek-universe celebrate the ultimate anniversary: The probably most influential science-fiction-series ever gets 50 years old. And today it's exactly 3 months until anniversary-day. And not enough the 50th anniversary: With the 3rd movie of the current timeline, introduced by J.J.Abr
10 years „Life on Mars“, a great BBC-TV-series

10 years „Life on Mars“, a great BBC-TV-series

I have made several reminiscences to good television-series, but so far never for one newer than 15 years. "Life on Mars" however is something special, to me the best series of the 2000s in several ways: It is not a series from the USA but from the UK. It takes place in the not-too-long-ago past, in the year 1973. Although it is predominantly a rea

Star-Wars, schizophrenia and me

Who doesn't know Star Wars? It will not be more than a few people, solely the currently ongoing almost unbelievable public campaign makes it almost impossible, to miss at least some information about it. I'm more a Star-Trek and Babylon-5 fan, however completely undogmatic. I like watching almost everything, that is good. And I have to mention, tha

People-initiative against TTIP, CETA and TISA in Austria

Today on 23th January 2017, the people-initiatve (Volksbegehren) "against TTIP, CETA and TISA" is launched in Austria.The 3 trans-atlantic "free trade agreements" for 2-3 years are under massive criticism from a myriad of sceptical organizations – and this to me absolutely justified. It has been initiated by a group of SPÖ-politicians (Austrian

GetSimple - the world’s most simple CMS with an uncertain future

There are many content management systems (CMS) existing. To most famous belong WordPress, Joomla and Typo3. But all of them require an MySQL-database of the server. And above all the installation and the adaptation of the systems to your own needs is quite complex. As small and technically simple websites are not in need of the major CMS’ extens

Trump, Clinton, Third-Parties & more – Austrian US-Election 2016 review

The US presidential-election 2016 is now several weeks ago, but just because of the disemotionalisation related to this fact a a sober look at it's result now is possible. And – though resulted by the fact, that I didn't have time, created my articles English version – the publication at this date very well fit's to the whole inauguration-proce
Starsky and Hutch - 1 year after 40th anniversary

Starsky and Hutch - 1 year after 40th anniversary

Exactly 1 year ago, the two 70s cops Starsky & Hutch have celebrated the series 40th anniversary. And this "birthday" for me was the reason paying tribute to this ground-breaking television series with a big anniversary-article. Interestingly, when it comes to reader's interest, my English anniversary-appreciation was a pretty big hit, while the Ge

Online-April-Fool-Jokes – potentially joyless fun

April-Fool-Jokes have a centuries old tradition, the term as such already exists since the 19th century. And of course I know this tradition since my childhood – and in recent years I have also regularly fallen into it. But no more so around the last 20 years. Also earlier on April-Fools have been made not only in personal contact but also in new

Ashes to Ashes: German free-TV premiere

4 ½ months ago my favorite series of the 2000s celebrated its 10th anniversary: "Life on Mars" from the UK, named the same as the title track song from the great and unfortunately already deceased David Bowie. "Life on Mars" has got a successor: The BBC-series "Ashes to Ashes", produced from 2008 to 2010 – and also with an epononymous Bowie-song

50 years Star Trek in TV – the ultimative mega-anniversary

On 8th September 2016 time has come: Star-Trek – or how is it called in German „Raumschiff Enterprise (Starship Enterprise) has celebrated its 50th anniversary. On 08. September 1966 the series was primarily aired in the United States. And though I haven't managed making my tribute on time, on the anniversary-day – this I just did in German
