- Had weirdes breakfast ever: Krupuk (shrimp crackers) and Sambal Oelek. I think [profile] yamasagi's love for spicy stuff is finally rubbing off on me ^_^;;;

- Watched more creepy documentaries, mainly concerning Chernobly, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. What's it with me and atomic stuff?!

- Why do the documentary people have to visualize the effects of drugs using cute animations? Those receptors are adorable, they actually go *munch, munch* *gulp* when ingesting the substances O.o

- I should watch more Arte. Yupyup. Gotta check whether I even get it via DVB-T...
Today, I was watching some four-part documentary about young people during the Third Reich. Around timestamp 15 minutes... I saw this:

I had to brighten these because the lighting during that scene was utter crap. Also cut out the TV station's logo which was on the left.
But, honestly, like I could mistake that nose for anyone else's. Yes, what you're looking at right now is Kai Taschner, aged 25. In other words, Baby Kai ^^
What a cutie pie, despite the Nazi uniform. Still, I rpefer today's Kai, mainly because I only really know this version ;) Also, it's not like he's not painfully adorable any more *swoons*

Anyway, the facts.
In 1882, a four-part TV movie called "Blut und Ehre" was shot, depicting a German boy's involvement in the Hitler Youth. Apparently, they took this dramatization, shortened and re-edited it, added documentary bits, called it "Jugend unter Hitler" and released it to be shown in schools. And for some reason, me, being the WWII documentary junkie that I am, got my hands onto it.

Also, a rather crazy detail: Most of the actors were re-dubbed. Including Kai. What the...?! Gotta ask him why the hell that was done because it somwhat boggles the mind O_o

Geez, why do I keep running into Kai when I least expect it? You'd almost think I was doing this on purpose XD

Yesterday and today I watched both parts of Stephen Fry's "The Secret Life Of The Manic Depressive".
I think I've never seen a documentary that managed to build up a lot of credibility and be so very touching at the same time.
Watch it.
There's two torrents, the one here is the one I got (huge files, I gotta admit, but the quality is insanely good), this one is a bit smaller but requires you to register with the tracker, which should be neither difficult nor dangerous.

Next up: (once I get 'em) Jesus Camp (No way I'm gonna miss that one!), Michael Palin's travelling series (apart from Sahara, which I happen to own on DVD). Also: Fawlty Towers since the only two versions I've seen are the German dub and the German remake (Yep, there was such a thing).

ETA: Eeeee!!! TheBox has the unaired Qi pilot episode! Too bad those fucktards banned BitComet, but hey - that's why I have ĀµTorrent as a secondary BT client just in case ^_^
Watched TFIYNR today. OMFG. Made me fuckin' angry.
On the other hand, we all know how suggestive and one-sided these kinds of documentary tend to be.
That one guy made me giggle. He basically said that Europeans think Americans are strange because of the problems they have with sex and stuff. And I was like "Yes, we do" (Why, I like to talk to my movies, don't you? XDD).
Anyway. It was provocative and interesting and I loved it. End of story.

Also, we got the LCD TV. The Toshiba 42X3030D, the one we wanted in the first place. Yeeha!!
More about that later since all that squeeing and tons of pics (which I haven't taken yet, ahem) really ought to diappear behind a cut. It's too embarrassing otherwise ^_^;;;

(BTW: That user pic is a Klonie)
