Grand Kirin Izayoi no Tsuki IPA

My experience with the previous Grand Kirin semi-craft attempt wasn’t exactly great (and most people seem to have had similar opinions), so I had reservations about Izayoi no Tsuki.

Red Seal ale

This one was recommended to me, so I gave it a try. Luckily a nearby liquor store has a good stock of various American craft beers, so I can go around challenging this and that.

The future of animation

I can’t not wonder how the Japanese anime industry is going to change in the years to come. I look at the Animator Expo videos, and half of them are basically full CGI. Sometimes it takes minutes to finally get a giveaway hint that it’s not hand-drawn animation. High-polygon models, refined cell-shading, and good direction can disguise CGI really well.

Needless to say, CGI allows much smoother animation much cheaper, since you don’t need people to draw each and every tween, nor worry about the number of tween frames (tweeners are paid by frames drawn usually). People argue that hand-drawn animation still looks better, but how long is that going to hold true?


Azokban az időkben, amikor még kevésbé gyorsan borostásodtam be, elég sokat olvastam, de most a mennyiség helyett inkább a sebesség a lényeg. Emlékszem, anno eléggé mellbe vágott, amikor nővéremtől kölcsönkaptam az ötödik Harry Potter könyvet angolul (magyarul még nem jelent meg akkor), és nem tudtam százasával falni az oldalakat.

Being awesome

I wasn’t in a good shape recently. Always sleepy, always exhausted, never in the mood to do anything, easily frustrated. Then I had enough.

I’ve been putting off cleaning my room for months, so you can guess what a spectacular mess I had to face tonight at 2am when I decided to follow Barney Stinson’s everlasting advice, and stop letting life get the better of me, and be awesome instead – starting with cleaning my room. Yes, at 2am.

I looked at the frightening amount of stuff, ranging from Amazon boxes to spam flyers, took a deep breath and some time later I ended up with a huge pile of neatly packed trash instead, that’s gonna have to wait until next week (when the next trash day comes). Obviously I wouldn’t start vacuuming my room in the middle of the night, so that’s gonna have to wait until the weekend.

Some weekend.
