Umm... something else: Jorge, you've hidden the fact very well in a side-remark in the weather-topic, but you had an exam a week ago? How did it go? I hope you were successful!

Cheers!

I was in a cinema yesterday. It is one of the group of independent cinemas here in Prague. :-) There was a projection of a new Icelandic movie by a famous (maybe not to everyone) director Baltasar Kormákur. He made movies like 101 Reykjavík, Contraband (Hollywood movie) and Jar City (Mýrin in Icelandic). The Jar City was quite famous. In my country on the Karlovy Vary movie festival it even won 2 awards.

The new movie is called The Deep/Djúpið. It is based on real story.

The projection was special because the director stopped by to introduce the movie himself :) He was on his way from Berlin to Budapest and he decided to stop by (it was planned). After the movie there was a discussion too. I was too shy to ask anything in front of the whole room full of people. But when the discussion ended I decided to ask him for an autograph and asked him then. He was very nice and funny the whole time. I got the autograph and the answer, handshake and that's the end of the fairytale! :D

But then again, who does.

I see, Kris. :)

Yeah, that must have been a great evening for you. I'm so glad for you! Did you know that Kormákur would drop in or was that a surprise to you?

Cheers!

No, I knew that. The cinema had it planned so it is even written on the ticket :-)

I see. Well, congrats again - I'm glad that you had such a great evening. :thumbup: :) Would you like to tell us what you asked him and what he replied?

My last night out was less spectacular. I joined a buddy's party after I was done with work and had a few hours of talking, laughing, music and a few beers. On that occasion I finally learned how to open a bottle of beer with a lighter. :wOOt: :ninja: :lol3:

Cheers!

That is still a well spent evening, in my opinion ;) Was that a b-day party? Did you know the rest of the people or not?
I never knew that people tend to open beer bottles with lighters  :blink: How exactly is this being done? :)


Hm, I asked him what happend to the ship, Breki. Kormákur bought the ship himself so they could sink it for the purpose of the movie (they actually had to sink it twice). He did not mention during the discussion what happend to her and you know how tightly I am connected to such things. :) He told me that they scrapped it. He said it was very expensive.
I can imagine Breki was of no use anymore, after two sinkings but still, the ship was very nice! I am sorry for her. But she's very famous now :D The movie was Oscar nominated.
But then again, who does.

They had to sink the ship twice? :blink: That sounds weird... But that was a very interesting question you asked him! :thumbup:

Right you are, that was a well spent evening. :biggrin: It wasn't a birthday party but an early Männertag (mens' day - the German tradition of getting drunk on Ascension Day). I knew Drushka very well, the friend who invited me, and some of the other folks remotely - and the actual host I hadn't met before.

Opening beer bottles with a lighter is useful when no opener is at hand, but actually is more about fun and showing off. :lol3: There are different techniques. The one I learnt is to hold the bottle tight on the top end and hold one finger off a little bit so you can insert the bottom end of the lighter between the finger and the crown cork. Then you lever the cork off with the lighter. Difficult to explain, but actually quite easy to do. You can find some videos here.

Cheers!

I see, interesting. We have nothing like Ascension Day traditions here. I even did not know it is being "celebrated" somewhere. :-) I guess Christian feasts are really not my topic  :nosweat: How bad with a student of theological faculty.

Thank you for the videos :-))

Did you drink beer only? Is there any drink you do not drink at all for some reasons?



If I got it right, he said: "so we sank it second time and this time we did not forget to turn on the cameras"  :lol3:

Haha - that's a very good reason to sink the ship a second time. :lol3:

I drank almost beer only. I do prefer red wine for classier parties, beer for more casual occasions - but there is no beverage I reject on principle.

Cheers!
