Munchies: Liv and Taira
There’s a war in Europe. No, this time it’s not about refugees escaping from such, but the big adblocker war. What’s happening? Big publisher’s in Germany are trying to get rid of users that installed an adblocker plugin in their browsers. Thirst, they displayed large messages on their news portals begging for users to switch off their blockers. The next level was bolting out users with an active adblocker.

Mental Sinema likes that moment of anticipation, the silence before ecstasy. We are looking at porn images as if it was art. Why shouldn’t it be art?

Listen to these followers! Enjoy Mental Sinema! Continue reading

We all want to be recognized and loved, especially when we are uncertain about ourselves, and we standing in need of love, support and sympathy. You all know people who are growing up in a stable environment, getting all the love from their parents, their friends, everybody, where there’s always somebody willing to help if there’s the slightest hint of a problem.
Unfortunately, in most cases this person isn’t you.
Hangover at German domain registrar conference “Domain Pulse” in Berlin: after ten years of planning, followed by a difficult delivery, nobody seems to interested that much in the new gTLDs.
