Life, part III: 2013

2013. It always feels weird when facing a new number, every year the same number. I’m enticed to say that the years feel more and more science fiction and futuristic in the 21st century, but I’m sure it felt exactly the same when predicting the near future or facing new years in the 1900s, or […]

Special effects are acceptable (I’ve never cared too much about special effects what so ever), and acting is, especially by […]
