I will keep this a short one.
In a few weeks it is Christmas and I would have not realized it, if it wouldn’t have been for red starbucks cups and posts of my friends that show snow. I mean last week I went out in a T-shirt and other than a planned Christmas party at work there is not that much of a Christmas feeling. Which is a good thing when you are away from the place that probably celebrates it in the most ‘christmassy’ kind of way. Read a bit about it here in decent English and for future tourists.
What I wanted to say was: waiting for a friend in one of the couple of Apple stores in this city (Munich as a city where I lived has one to compare) I was playing this game to feed a hippo and a monkey and they where not too happy that I put more than tomatoes and cabbage in their salad and the monkey had fire breath after a pizza with 1 pepper. Kids growing up are in trouble of getting the right nutritional information is the lesson I take away from that. Maybe there too busy with gender inequality. F**k knows! (To clarify: this is sarcasm, I like all kinds of games and kids growing up are not any worse or better than my generation was or the generation before or the generation after and so on)
So if you want to find the particular game I played, I can’t help much, maybe your search result for feeding animals on a small island ios will reap better results. If you happen to visit an apple store in China in the next couple of weeks, then this is a game installed there. The name, if you should find it out, or a link would be appreciated. It was good fun.
Anyway, I was playing away and I thought I might test out some headphones. I have really cool ones – these – but why not try what the fuzz is all about with Beats and Bower & Wilkins and whatnot. Mine go up to 11 I think and have decent bass for everything from slow nuanced music to blastbeats.
There is an astounding mix of preview songs on those iPods attached to the headphones you can try. They have for example Mastodon, Muse, Ed Sheeran and then what I wanted to write about initially: Olafur Arnalds. This guy is 2 years younger than me and I discovered his music like a lot of my friends through one of my favorite bands (and everyone’s favorite German Metalcore band, for a time #2 album in the German charts and also all the band members with pretty much the accent that I am rocking when speaking German) Heaven Shall Burn. He was supplying them with amazing intros and interludes. Now he has one of the sample songs in every apple store around the world. Well done and well deserved.
Here is the song:
