Strange albums for Anne

This is a list of albums, music scores and so on

Also I will point out one song from the album, but in some cases this song will be much different then the rest of the album so beware. The reason for this is that some of this albums are rather complex, so every song is different.

Also, most of this sounds horrible at first hearing, but after like ten times it finally sinks under the skin.

p.s. The reason why it took me so long to write this list is because, if I start to…

Dark and unordinary films II: now with animation!

In my first list I was avoiding films labeled as horrors, but this time I will put such films only because I consider that they have a deeper meaning. Some of this films only have some dark scenes but are not overall dark. And also I consider existential horror to be very dark.

Friday and Winning

Don't you ever get that strange feeling that worlds have suddenly changed their meaning like Winning (because of Sheen) and Friday (because of R. Black).

I mean, this are common words, but when ever someone utters them I get this horrifying flashback of how you are minding your own business and the stupidity just forces it's way in, and then you become a part of this great carnival of stupidity we call popular culture. You just feel unclean like you are still a toddler with…

Anti government protests in Croatia

Talk about blind leading the blind, people are outraged for a long time, but only now that people are revolting in Arab world people realized that they should finally say what they think, but in my opinion, to late, the politicians already stole everything they could and lost all the money, so what's the point?

Beyond Death

Title maybe misleading like everything else I always write because my English is not so god. My vocabulary is excellent but the way I use it is problematic. In this blog I will not talk about life after death.

Now, on to the topic.

I've been watching Real Time with Bill Maher's episode with Seth MacFarlane because I'm a big fan and I watch everything with him in it. But at the beginning of the episode (the episode in question is 2010 09 24)…

Philosophical reasons

Last time I wrote a blog I wrote about the life experiences that led me to being an atheist. Now about philosophical reason why I became an atheist.

Some of us had life experiences that led us to where we are, but I think all of you had a long thought about the veracity of your claim  that there is no supernatural. Some of you didn't. I was one of those people who did believe a little because my parents were agnostic. So I became by simple influence an agnostic. My parents believed in…

From Croatia with love :D

I will start with a short anecdote 

When the war started 20 years ago in my country I didn't know very much about my religion, especially what it was called because I didn't know others existed. In my eyes all I had to do is believe in god, fold my hands in prayer and ask for little things to happen and learn bunch of thing from the catechism. My priest came to me and asked me what my fathers faith was. I didn't know. Then he sad something and I agreed because I believed he sad the…
