The story here has not much substance, however editing and humor make up for it.

Owls: Masters of the Night (2020)

In this one we meet few families of owls as they try to raise their young. A very informative documentary with phenomenal cinematography.

SF8: White Crow


Maybe it's because I'm not a gamer, I find movies, or series about gaming utterly boring. But here, the game was just a false (sic!) pretense to explore something else.

Album Cover Part 1

I am starting new series of posts. Me, being me, they will not be a regular thing, most likely. Although I will do my best to keep it regular and around Friday. But you know, work, real life, and tons of hobbies prevent me from not only streaming 24/7 but also participating in online encounters. Each post will contain only 5 album covers.

[First Impression] Alice


Time travel is notoriously hard to get right and to present in a form without many plot holes and inconsistencies. There is not even one work of fiction that gets it right, and the one that was closest to it was SyFy series 12 Monkeys. And only because they invented their own mythology of time.

SF8: Baby, It's Over Outside

At first I had strong Arthur C. Clarke's vibes - with the world coming to an end and humanity not being able to stop it. But then it got weird.

Saturday Poetry Corner 47: Nothing Twice


Today, a poem by a Polish lady poet - Wisława Szymborska, a Nobel Laureate. It was featured in Korean translation in one of the SF8 stories, so I decided to bring it for a wider audience.

Mountain trip 2020


Now, I promised to some people I would post the pictures. Some of them found their way to twitter. Some are the same object but with different lenses. I am not a great photographer, hell, I can't take pictures, but maybe someone will feel better with all the blue and green.

[First Impression] Missing: The Other Side

From the first episode there was an eerie feeling about this series, and after 4 episodes this feeling has not subsided. And if it continues the same quality as since now, this might be the best from OCN up to date in 2020.

SF8: Blink

This episode dealt with and A.I. and its integration with a human brain. But in fact, it dealt with loneliness.

Into The Wild Colombia: Finding a Family 5/5 (2018)

With this last episode we bid farewell to Colombia's forests, monkeys, frogs and birds. In it, we follow Mona - a young cotton-top tamarin monkey.She left her family in search of her own. And she saved her new one from the big, bad snake.

Drama Stage 2020: Out of Communication Range


And with this episode, the Drama Stage 2020 comes to an end. It took me a while to watch all 10 standalone episodes and write short description. Maybe someone would be interested enough to check it. But I don't have such illusions.

Drama Stage 2020: I Object


After the considerably heavy previous episode, this one brought back hope and a bit of a subtle humor - mostly relying on a wonderful acting. Because the topic of this little story is not that light at all.

Into The Wild Colombia: Warriors of the Llanos 4/5 (2018)

In this episode we follow a herd of capybaras as they brave the scorching season of drought, ans also a tiny family of burrowing owls as they race time to bring up their offspring before the coming rainy season. Then we learn about the jacana birds - here the females are territorial and they leave males right after laying the eggs, so it's the guys job to raise the chicks.

The year is 2046, and the ghost of Wong Kar-wai is hovering over this little story.
