Super Hexagon game

 I was introduced to this game by my friend Patrick. I remember that day well, it was before one of our club karaoke sessions, Pat came over and said something along these lines: “Hey Vadim, I know you love juBeat, here is a game that will test your skills even more. Its called Super Hexagon.”

The Pixar Theory – They Are All Connected!

July 16th, 2013

Pixar

 I went to my good friend Clara’s blog and saw an article about Pixar. Well Pixar being my favorite western animation studio (Shaft, KyoAni, Ghibli are still my top3 in japan) I just had to read it. It is a interesting theory by this guy – Jon Negoroni but its so crazy that it might even be true! Hey they even mention time travel to fit in Monsters Inc and Brave.

As Clara put it, she was:

blindmown.

I concur! After reading this theory I have the sudden urge to to rewatch all the Pixar movies in the chronological order that he made as if they were connected.

既存メディアに影響したソーシャルメディア

– 序論

ティモシー・ジョン・バーナーズ=リーは1990年にWold Wide Web (WWW)を考案し、ハイパーテキストシステムを実装・開発した人物である(ウィキペディア、2013)。 インターネットが普及する前はテレビや新聞やラジオのようなメディアからのみ最近のニュースや情報を得る事ができた。そしてインターネットが広がると同時に、情報を手に入れる方法も増加した。 その方法の一つはソーシャルメディアである。 現代社会では、人々は完全にインターネットに夢中になっている。

しかし、インターネットの開発とともにテレビやラジオや新聞などの既存メディアに対する興味が徐々に減少しており、若者層にFacebookやTwitterやブログのようなソーシャルメディアが流行っている。なぜなら、天気、スポーツ、ニュースなど、ありとあらゆる情報がインターネットでいつでも手に入れられるからである。その上ニュースサイトでは記事に対する自分の意見をコメントできるため、人々はこのような自分自身も意見を投稿できるウェブサイトを好むのではないだろうか。そのことを検証するためインタビューを行った。

本稿では、インタビューの結果によって得たデータを集め、他の研究者の記事を分析し私が予想する現象が起こっているかどうかを検証する。

Lido

Lido

For lunch today my parents took me to Lido. Lido is a restaurant and a small amusement center located 10 minutes away from the center of Riga. Not only does it look like a building from the countryside of Latvia, but the food there is also traditional and specific to the more rural regions of Latvia. And of course it is extremely delicious!

Jūrmala

ラトビアと言えばやっぱりユールマラだな〜  Ja tu gribi kaut kur atpūsties tad brauc uz jūru, uz Jūrmalu! Солнце, пляж – отдыхай, плавай, загорай.

Jūrmala is a small city on the coast line 20km away from the capital Rīga. Its like Goal Coast in a way, nice beaches, lots of people and a lot of attractions. I went there with my family and our family friends just for a stroll and to spend the nice day outside at the beach.
