In the days of the Centris...
HyperCard was a fascinating program.
I even tried to created some own HyperCard batches.
One of them was a batch of the Berlin underground stations.
The target was to connect the stations as they were in real life.
To illustrate the exits of a station.
And some specials of the city above.
One of the first problems was the screen resolution.
It was somewhat difficult to get the complete subway network on 640x480 pixel.
My HyperCard batch got never completed.
Only some lines got all of its stations.
The U7 with Mehringdamm as one of its stations was one of the completed lines.
But at that time there was no photo of Mehringdamm and many other stations.
Also the at that time actual MBahn was included...
but only the first station had pictures...
with the train which once broke through the station wall...

But HyperCard really was a great idea... before the time of the internet...

(I doubt that I could revive the Centris to add the picture above...
it is sleeping an endless sleep downbelow...)

By the way: Yorck score (before "Girl"): 5(25).
Films in 2018 seen so far: 17...
This year I might see 20+x films... ok, me thinks...

*

Excerpt out of a letter I got, Berlin "Beautymountain", 29th of August 2018:

All dates at 20h CET, Planetarium @ the Insulaner...
entry fee: 8€, reduced 6€...
all lectures will be held in German...

from the series "support your local astronomy institution today"...

*

Seen: Girl at delphiLUX... again.
This time with more audience.
Although the film was only acceptable...
IMHO...

I currently have a date with a female specialist every 3 month or so.
Its about blood pressure and kidney function.
For this I have to use the underground to Deutsche Oper.
There was once a historical scales with card print mechanism.
There were several of these scales in the Berlin underground.
They are removed nowadays.
Dunno if they will come back some day.
For 10 Pfennig or after 2002 for 10 Eurocent these machines were weighting you.
2004 I took a picture (not only) of the scales at Deutsche Oper.
Aside there is a detail of it.
Its from my Berlin pictures of that year.
One might see there (somewhat), that there was no second exit of the underground station at that time.
This exit was installed later... after a hazardous fire...

*

Seen: Grenzenlos (Submergence).
At the Kant cinema.
Sorry.
I think the film is worth to see...
even if the rest of the world don't think so.
In the Berlin magazine Tip it got two of five dots.
(Earlier, a millennium ago this meant somewhat like "ambivalent".)
At the IMDb it currently has a rating of 5,4 (out of 10)...
less than for Superman (7,3), Resident Evil (6,7) or Swimming Pool (6,8).
As said: I'm deeply sorry. I think I live in a parallel universe.
Its a political film, me thinks.
With real, somewhat current problems.
And even with a bit of science.
Its by Wim Wenders... and still with somewhat like sex in it.
Somewhat intelligent (sex).
IMHO.
Maybe I'm too stupid to see the ambivalent nature of Submergence...

Funny (me thinks, still):
in the film the doctor of Deep Space 9 is a supporting actor.
(Alexander Siddig.) And he plays... a doctor...

I personally like the screenplay of Alicia Vikander...
as already in Ex Machina...

Was looking for pictures from the underground station Bayrischer Platz lately.
Somewhat interesting.
Even after 3 attempts nothing found about the 3 pictures above.
But instead found lots of cat and bunny pictures...

One of the last fortune cookies:

Good to begin well.
Better to end well.

Ok.
Let it end soon.
It doesn't get better anyway...

In the meantime...
The next film to see will be "Lady Bird".
By recommendation of a single female cineast.
Who hasn't seen "3 Days in Quiberon" yet.
But who will catch up soon...

hope she will like it, at least...
don't think that many people will like it as I do...

1 fortune cookie:

Things will turn towards
the bright side.

This cookie I got two times lately.
Now I'm waiting for the next occursion,
because (only) everything that's said 3 times is true...

*

Most of the time I like to know what cookies other people get.
If they're willing to get one.
If they haven't got a real serious diabetis.
Or if they don't make a diet and couldn't even eat 1 cookie.
(Calorific value of 1 cookie: 25kcal.)

Lately Sara (still without Tegan, still from Sevilla) got the following:

Everyone agrees:
you are the best.

Ok.
Where do I have to sign?

Since the start of last month I have the new Kosmos-Himmelsjahr 2018.
Since one or two weeks later my copy of the Stellarium program worked on my system.
Strange. Cool...

Seen: 10 Cloverfield Lane.
After all, a very good SF movie.
Seen in a somewhat small sub-cinema at Potsdamer Platz.
In a German version.
It was still very good, I think.

...cause its witchcraft... (Frank Sinatra)

One year ago was the last complete day out there.
There were some last courses I missed.
I sat in the corridor hall and waited.
Maybe four houres, maybe more.
I think I missed lunch.
It was the last time I saw her...

91 hours.
Couldn't get Double Bubble chewing-gum...

Anyway.
Next time I'll maybe reach at least a 100 hours.

I've also found out the next film I like to see.
The Imitation Game.
Maybe it will win one or the other Oscar...
