Seachd - The Crimson Snowdrop

A while back, I posted an entry about a movie called Seachd - The Inaccessible Pinnacle. Well, this Gaelic movie has now gone international but the international title is called Seachd - The Crimson Snowdrop. Personally, I think The Inaccessible Pinnacle is more relevant to the story but then again, The Crimson Snowdrop does sound much more dramatic, doesn't it? I like the new movie poster, though.

VOSS, from Norway

What's so special about bottled water? Well, nothing. At least that's what I thought, until I set eyes on a bottled water from Norway called VOSS. Apparently, VOSS is found in top hotels, restaurants and clubs around the world, which probably explains why I have never seen a bottle of VOSS until now since I don't frequent any of those places. I'm in more of a 'youth hostel' financial bracket rather than a 'top hotel' bracket, you know? Anyway, I met up with a cousin of mine for dinner the other day. He's the only relative I have in England at the moment and he came up from Bristol with a couple of his friends to spend a day in London. It was when we were shopping around after dinner in Harrods that I saw the VOSS bottles. I knew I wanted to buy one as soon as I saw them, not because I was thirsty but because I wanted the bottle... yeah, the actual glass bottle itself. I love the sleek design :) A few days later, I found out the bottle was designed by Neil Kraft, the former creative director for Calvin Klein! I guess that explains the nice design.

Watchmen

video

When I first heard they were making Watchmen into a movie, I wasn't too sure what to think. Will it be a success or will it be like The Punisher with Thomas Jane and John Travolta? But now that I've seen the trailer, I'm thinking it could be good. The trailer looks awesome! And similar to 300, some scenes seem to be filmed from the exact perspective of the comic book panels. But it'll be another half a year before the actual movie is released.
