iPhone Wallpaper: My Contribution.

I took personal favorites out of my 200 most popular flickr pictures and converted them into the iPhone accepted wallpaper size of 320 to 480 pixels. Feel free to modify them or whatever, they are all with a creative commons license. Enjoy these free iPhone wallpapers: That’s it for now. If I can ever afford an iPhone myself, I’ll probably make more. I can’t even test them… *cry* […]

Official John Rabe(约翰拉贝) pictures.

Most of my friends know what I’ve been doing during the last three months: working with the VFX team on the german movie John Rabe. Sadly, no trailer has been officially released yet so I don’t really have anything to show. But! ‘Majestic Film Verleih’, the company who will bring the movie to german cinemas this year (or so I hope) released 8 official press pictures. So here you go, a little something to feed your appetite in regards to this movie. 8 pictures! Dr. Georg Rosen (Daniel Brühl), employee of the german embassy, tries to handle the threat in regard of the chinese civilians in diplomatic ways. (Picture: Majestic / Ruggero Rossi) Dr. Robert Wilson (Steve Buscemi), leader of Nanjing’s hospital, fights tireless for the survival of the people. (Picture: Majestic / Tomoko Kikuchi) Valérie Dupres (Anne Consigny), leader of the International Girls College, can’t enjoy the festivities – she’s worried about her students. (Picture: Majestic / Tomoko Kikuchi) Nazi Werner Fließ (Mathias Herrmann, 3.v.l.) is supposed to take John Rabe’s (Ulrich Tukur, 5.v.l.) place as the leader of the Siemens branch in Nanking. (Picture: Majestic / Ruggero Rossi) John Rabe (Ulrich Tukur) is desperate, the uncertain future worries […]

A walk on the wall.

Yesterday we took a day off from all that family-meeting-during-spring-festival business and took a almost two hour long walk on the famous Xi’An city wall. The Xi’An city wall surrounds completely the inner downtown area, which makes it a incredible 13.74 kilometers long. It was established in the year 582, which was the second year of the Sui dynasty and it was always repaired and kept in shape during the following dynasties (Tang, Ming), too! It has four huge gates in the north, south, west and each as well as many smaller ones in between them. Every gate has a temple-like looking watch post, but what you can see from up there during walking from one gate to the other one is even more interesting. Luckily I took my camera and shot a lot, have a look. Watchpost. Unfinished. The Bell. Sorting The Trash. Roofs. Restaurant In A corner. Poor Place. My Angel Jiajia. Lanterns. Endless Wall. Cannon. Broken. A Tower. […]

The Edison Chen “Sexgate”.

Top topic among people in the wife’s and mine age rank this spring festival: the stolen sex tape pictures from Hong Kong star Edison Chen, the Sexgate. So this dude is a famous singer slash actor, and bedded recently quite an impressive amount of chinese female stars (god knows how many before, the thieves probably didn’t steal all his tapes, and he probably didn’t film every girl he seduced). The tape and / or pictures were not even stolen from his apartment, no no, that’d been real easy: He handed his personal computer to a company to fix it, something must have been broken, and one of the employees there is now either sitting in Hawaii drinking Pina Coladas or he has been caught and rots in jail… Who knows? Anyway, like every other famous dumb ass, he filmed every one of the above mentioned females in various actions: fellatio, stripping for him, erotic / pornographic posing… And of course he filmed himself too, giving them oral pleasure and whatnot. Background to the Edison Chen Sexgate But Hong Kong is not America and most likely this ‘incident’ wont boost his career Paris Hilton style. No, this is China, where correct […]
