Re: Kindle 3 cases

The light could be useful sometimes I suppose. However I am not sure how well the LED actually lights the screen, the screenshots on the site seem to feature some glaring, and a bad distribution of the light. If you light to read in the dark, I guess you could find the lighting useful. So far howeve...

Re: Kindle 3 cases

I bought the regular Black Kindle Leather Cover for my Kindle 3. Not the cheapest thing, but I am satisfied with the cover. I'm pretty sure you can find a cheaper cover in the same quality.
The Hinge on the cover is pretty ingenious, compared to straps.

Re: Romantic films that are not terrible awful travesties

I would recommend Once - a low budget Irish film.
One of the best naturalistic films I have ever seen. It is romantic, but in a different way than usual. it is hard to elaborate without spoiling anything.
Also my favourite musical/music film.
Watch it, for the sake of everyone around you.

Re: Led Zeppelin

The beginning of Ten Years Gone is amazing, unfortunately it seems to be overseen..

One of the things i like the most about Led Zeppelin, is that if I hear ten second from any part of any song, I can tell what song it is. I think it is awesome that they were able to create such different sounds.

Re: Motivation

What usually helps me is right when you get home, instead of going on the computer or anything like such, drink something (Coffee, Juice, Coke etc.), put on some quiet music and relax for a couple of minutes. Then study whatever you have to study. :roll:


Otherwise masturbation.

The man within - Graham Greene.

Nice book, a bit depressing but good character development.

And then the last chapter... The last chapter had to ruin everything. :evil:
I haven't touched anything by Graham Greene ever since. I don't think i can take anymore.
