shubassdk: (Woot! (geography))
Yes, I do realise that I already own "A short history of nearly everything" by Bill Bryson, but that doesn't mean that I'm crazy for ordering the illustrated version, too, does it? It's just...I love it. So much. I have always been a huge physics and chemistry geek or tried to be, but the teachers and books I've had hasn't explained it to me well, so because I couldn't understand it well enough I gave up and cast my love on other things. But then I read this book a little over a year ago. And it was literally love at first sight. I took it with my to my parents' summerhouse and read for three days. My parents have told me that I kept laughing and read paragraphs for them. When I came home I started looking into the whole Geography-business. All because of one man and one book. He is the sole reason for me studying geography.

I want to urge and encourage each and everyone of you to read this book. Even if you're not really the biggest geek and don't think math is fun I really think you will enjoy it.

And now we wait for to send it to me... (and "The Last Templar", because, yes.)
shubassdk: (Whole other world (movies))
"Populärmusik från Vittula" is the best movie ever! Yesterday I finished reading it in Swedish and I loved it so much so when I came home from parents summer house (more about that later) I hurried down to my lokal Blockbuster to rent it on DVD. And my god I want to marry Niila so much right now! *cough* Yes. Anyway. Basically it's about the friendship between two young Swedish/Finnish guys in the 60's and how they discover rock'n'roll music and girls and that sort of this. But it's also about how they really can't let go of their history, their past and their ancestory. [ profile] erjika, if there was ever one movie I'd want you to see, this is it. It's Swedish, it's Finnish, it's about music, it's slashy omg!!! So, yeah. See it. Or read it, maybe?

ETA @ 04:00 : I just finished watching it again and this time I cried evenmore. God, that movie is fucking beautiful! And I want to marry Niila even more now, which isn't good for my health. Fortunately I ripped the movie, so I now have it on my computer. I capped some slashy scenes if anyone is interested. I'll post them tomorrow if I get the time *crosses fingers*

Now, sleep. I hope.
